Oh, Lord what can I say apart from repeating myself. You are a very clever writer Mark. I guess you write scripts for what, films stage? Whatever they are fantastic please forgive the delay. Sincerely Anne

    Thanks, Anne. I work for a non-profit in Chicago - love to write as a hobby though.

Ken Harris Fairy Tale Cop, found fault with most characters did he forget the masterminds, Aesop, Mother Goose, and the Grimm brothers. Very well told.

Lol! You're so entetaining! Finally going to make it with Snow White, uh? I bet that's a common fantasy among men. The cool snow maiden who only needs to be awakened by the Charming, and very masculine Prince. Lol! I don't know if you're going to get away with using 'bad language" with a 10-year-old - even if he is imaginary. Conventions frown on that. Didn't bother me, any. I love the idea of modern values colliding with fairy-tale ideas. Cool stuff! Much enjoyed, Mark.

    I thought about really leaning into the profanity and going all out Samuel L Jackson for humorous effect, but decided against it.

Pardon my french, but...FUCKING FABULOUS! Seriously the best thing I've read....THIS YEAR. Hysterical. I can't even count the belly laughs, double entendres, out-right, spot-on insults. Perfect! This is what creative writing is about. Being creative. Using your imagination to take the familiar to a new dimension.

Hello Mark my man a happy Friday to you. I don't know what I can say about this that I haven't already said. The characters and dialogue are suburb. Ken Harris is becoming one of my favorite characters. Awesome job my friend. Please keep it coming!

It's a good thing these people aren't real. Ken seems to really want to screw up their stories. Sure Jack might be a little brat who traded a cow for some beans, and it's easy to re-imagine the story from the giant's point of view, but if Jack doesn't climb the beanstalk there's no story. And would you really want a gingerbread man running around, leaving crumbs everywhere? LOL I think the fox who ate him did the world a favor.

    It's amazing how many of those fairy tales, in their original versions, had really gruesome endings. It's as if the message to children was, be good or animals will eat you.

You must have had your tongue firmly in your cheek Mark. Such a fun script, humanising these fairy tale characters and making a bawdy script throws them into the R rating, I won't be able to read them to my grandchildren. Heh heh. You must be a riot at home my friend. Well done, your sense of humour is very similar to Thomas Bowling, well done, some "light" reading. "Good" characters, Well done, blessings, Roy

This is certainly a clever idea for a script. I think you just about covered every fairy tale out there in some shape or form. The ending was cute and wrapped the happily ever after up nicely. Well done and thank you very much for sharing it.

This is a brilliant take on the whole fairy story thing, and of course it works so well because we all know these tales. At one stage I felt that Ken Harris was taking on the persona of a certain US President -- quite early on when dealing with Jack Beanstalker or whatever his name was.

A delightful insight into the workings of your myth-oppressed brain and such great fun to finish off my reviewing session this afternoon.

    Thanks, Jim. It's hard not to comment on The Emperor's New Clothes without thinking about Trump.

I'm reading some fantast stuff this afternoon, and I don't have a six for any of you. I absolutely loved this story! Your sense of humour shows through so vividly, I enjoyed the way you dished out the advice and punishments. The ending had me in stitches, that was so funny!! This would have been a winner in a contest. Brilliant!! :)) Sandra xx
