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!

Oooooh. 3rd place! :-) I agree with Stooby as this was my favorite contest so far. Even better than that baby pics someone ran not too long ago! ;-)
Can't wait for the next one to be announced!

Great entries by everyone, but lets all given a big round of applause once again for our currently unnamed judges and of course our lovely contest coordinator, Anikka.

As far as drumsticks go, the only ones I have are still leftover from Thanksgiving dinner! :-P

Judges were Breitkat, Ima Vagabond, and me. I'm sorry, I usually do announce who the judges were, but I'm all at sixes and sevens right now.

Thanks to all you judges. I know it wasn't easy. It was a ton o' fun, though.

Congrats to the other winners,too. I enjoyed all the entries. What a cool contest, Ani.

The only problem I have is I can't get rid of the "drumming" in my head.lol

Congratulations to Stooby, Brick, Ctown, and Violet, for their stories. And great job to all the writers, this was an incredibly difficult contest to judge. All of the stories were very well-written, and creative. Fantastic job, everyone!! ;-D

Yep, congrats all! And thanks to the intrepid Anikka and the rest of the judges.

There are individualized prizes on the way for each of you, but I'll let Anikka do the official presentation.

To Mister Stoobethdoobeth...erm, Stooby :) shall be awarded one basket of poisoned apples. Or maybe they're not poisoned. Who wants to take a chance?

To Mister Brick84-eth (doh-eth!) shall be awarded one golden egg. There are no guarantees it was laid by a goose, but do you really care? It's 24k gold. If you're feeling brave, I guess you could try hatching it.

To Mister Ctown the downtown Browns clown :-) shall be awarded a mysterious key. It could be the key that opens the crystal casket holding Snow White. It could be the key that opens the vault holding all the gems the seven dwarves have dug up. It could be the key to the royal outhouse. Only the chatelaine knows for sure, and he ain't talking.

Thank you, Ben, for kicking in some sweet prizes. You rock-eth. :-) Hey, you win, too. Now you have some bedtime stories to tell Diego!

Many thanks fer the prizes ,Ben. And Annika, yer the best. :-)

I hope in my curious examination of the egg, I don't turn into that spoiled little chick from "Willy Wonka" and fall down a chute. On the other hand, I don't want the egg doing the reverse while I'm trying to hatch it. :-o LOL.

I'll let y'all know.
