The Maiden and the Knight

Once upon a time in a magical land where unicorns bathed in the waterfalls
There were many dragons that roamed the sky's, terrorizing the villagers

His fearless and worthy men rode into...

    I could see this as a piece of narration for serious animation, not the slop that passes for it today on t.v., but something hand drawn like old Disney or the Fleischer Brothers a la Gulliver Travels 1939 or their superb Superman cartoons. It strongly reminds me of that. I like this. It should be a keeper for you. Regards, Gerard.

    Really enjoy the fantasy setting in your "leave them hanging" write, Mitch, complete with dragons, knights and unicorns. When writing such fiction, it is always difficult for me to come up with good names, but you selected well there too. (Reminds me of some of James Frasers' work and that's a big compliment.) Wishing you success in the contest! Love, Carolyn
