Once Upon A Time

I grew up trying to get through the back of the wardrobe to Narnia. It was only a question of when I'd get through and become the princess of Narnia, marry a hunky prince, acquire plenty of magic and live happily ever after. Without children. Children are the plague, you see. The magic might not be all rainbows and unicorn hairs - unless they were taken by force. We all know, that if taken by force the magic is much stronger. I digress.

Only when I finally got the back of the wardrobe open, I was too old and there was nothing there. Imagine the tears and evil curses. Alas neither my tears nor my evil curses were powerful enough to get through and I had to live the quiet suburban house, being the suburban teenager doing his homework and behaving. For you, my lovely minions imagine the most magical, powerful and evil princess in all the realms being stripped of all her magic and forced to live in a town where there was no magic and knowing full well, who she is while her evil nemesis' and other pests walk around blissfully unaware of what's really going on. That's me.

Which "Once Upon A Time" Character Are You?

  1. You got: Regina
    ABC / Via

    You’re a no-nonsense go-getter. You believe in action over words, and you never make the same mistake twice. You’re tenacious and fiery, and you thrive in past-paced, high-stakes environments. In many ways you’re a natural-born leader, but you don’t have the time or patience for diplomacy — it’s a waste of everyone’s time. Behind all that fire and passion, you can be an excellent listener, and the few people you let into your heart stay there forever. You don’t easily forgive, but you also never abandon the people you love

 The last sappy bits, that's just to make me sound nicer than I really am but you knew that, didn't you?
Living in in this realm is difficult and while we don't really want the commoners to know about us sometimes it happens. A touch of squid ink, a magic bean or a heart does cause a bit of commotion. Of course all this is easily explained as is the fact that fairy tales are nothing but a Disney creation. I do shudder to think what people would think if they found out that this my favourite new thing  is really real. It's uncanny.


  1. I didn't realize you were posting again!

    I've updated my "Feedly" thingy since the other follower thingy isn't working anymore.

    1. I don't know about all these technology thingamabobs.

      I don't know that I am, I have twice now.

  2. I know what you mean. Although you had a lucky escape from Narnia - It's a dump now. Really has gone down hill. It's a good job there's still a guest list to get Over the Cusp, and you're still on it!

  3. Oh, I'm coming over but it won't be as a guest. It'll be to stay.

  4. I got through my wardrobe... after I'd finished playing dress up with all the fab coats. There are some big beavers in Narnia.

  5. I am not keen on the beavers. They're a bit fishy if you ask me.

  6. I totally missed out on "Once Upon a Time," sugarpie! As to the Narnia wardrobe, I gave up when I realized C. S. Lewis was secretly trying to indoctrinate my mind with his Catholic theology by weaving it into Celtic mythology. Or something like that. ;) xoxoxox

  7. I never really picked up on that. I took it at face value fantasising my way into that land beyond the closet. Now that you mention it, so they didn't want us coming out of the closet.

    It all makes sense, darling.

  8. Is it wrong that my favorite Once Upon A Time character is Mr Gold aka Rumpelstiltskin? Because he finds a way to always win and destroy his enemies...
