Well, it's bedtime and I can't sleep. I wanna hear a story!!!

But not just any story, no... that would be too easy. I wanna hear a noir fairy tale.


THE PREMISE: Take a fairy tale and make it Noir.

THE RULES: * Must be based on an existing fairy tale - doesn't have to be a popular one, but at least point me to the original, if it's an obscure one.
* All entries must be posted no later than 11:59 PM, November 30, 2007.
* Spelling and grammar count.
* Please be realistic with story length. If it takes three posts to tell, it's too long!!

THE PRIZES: I'm workin' on it...but there will be prize(s).

I know the last couple of contests were on the restrictive and difficult side, and rewriting a fairy tale as Noir may not be the simplest thing, but there are very few restrictions and rules this time - so let's see what you've got!

S'hard to give up the the life size Ben plush toy as first prize when she's grown so attached to it... y'all might have to settle for the bobble headed crunchpatty doll that sticks to the dashboard of your car.

Now wait a minute, I don't recall the prize being that...

Since when did we have a car here? and where would we put toys? amongst our accessories, and what kind of stats would they have?

Okay, okay, okay. Sheesh, that drumroll's killing me!

So, still sorting prizes out, but if you REALLY want to know......

First place went to - Stooby
Second place went to - Brick84
Third place went to - Ctown28

And an honourable mention (no prize involved, sorry) to Miss Violet Parr, who can fake a bruise like nobody's business.

I'll be in touch with you three- Stooby, Brick and Ctown -and Don Pardo will tell you what you've won (Hint: It's NOT a new car).

Thank you again to everyone who joined in the merriment!
