CASology #30 (Fairytale)

The team at CASology have really pushed the boat out this week with the cue card ‘Fairytale’ … don’t you just love it?  Where to go with this one?  There was plenty of inspiration from the GD (Darnell) and DT … from childhood fairy tales to personal fairytale endings and so much in between, so there was lots to spark the creative mind.  I’ve gone with a traditional fairy tale so please read on …

CASology 30         

Everyone knows this one … it’s so romantic, all about the son of the king who, whilst out riding one day, hears a beautiful girl singing from a high window, at the top of a tall tower with no door and no ladder.  He is so taken with the voice he determines to find a way into the tower.  He hides behind some thick bushes hoping to see someone coming and going.  Some time later, he hears a wicked witch shout up to the window ‘Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your golden hair’ but because he is too well hidden he can’t see how that helps the witch to get in.  However, he’s a tenacious type and once the witch has gone, he goes to the bottom of the tower and shouts up to the window ‘Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your golden hair’.  As he waits, he hears huffing and puffing and the clanking of a pulley, which causes him to look up to the window … Rapunzel is letting down her Golden Hare.

The Hare is, of course, magic (being golden and glittery) and can speak seven languages.  He tells the king’s son all about how he has dug a tunnel that runs under the thick tower walls, knowing that one day a handsome prince would appear to liberate Rapunzel.  As the king’s son is suitably handsome and therefore fits the bill, the Hare tells him how to access the tunnel and rescue Rapunzel.  In no time at all, the Handsome Prince (for that is what he now is) has made his way into the tower and has led Rapunzel to freedom.  She is so happy that she’s been rescued from the clutches of the wicked witch by the Handsome Prince (as any girl would be), she accepts said Handsome Prince’s offer of marriage.  So, in true fairy tale style, the Handsome Prince, Rapunzel and her Golden Hare ride off into the sunset to live happily ever after.  The End.

If you’re still there … thank you!  I’m only just still here … it’s way past bedtime and I should have been in bed a long time ago … p’raps you suspected that.  On that note, I’ll wish you a good night … thanks so much, as ever, for taking the time to come by, I so appreciate it!  Anita 🙂

    Thanks for the Rapunzel refresher! Seriously, I had forgotten all but the throwing down of the hair part! Loved this post! Another clever interpretation of the challenge! Swell brick tower wall – touches like this are what ALWAYS make your cards stand out.
