When’s the last time you filled out a Mad Libs? For me, it’s been ages! Now it’s time for all of us to fill out the blanks. Mel put together this fairytale-inspired Mad Libs for all of us, and oh boy, I can’t wait to see what happens in everybody’s stories.

MY FAIRYTALE MAD LIBS STORY

Once upon a time, in a far away desert(1), there lived a smart alchemist(2). He lived alone in a comic store(3), where he had grown up with the deceased owner. He had beautiful fingers(4), and he was known for his shiny red ottoman(5), the only thing it had left of his parents.

Alas, the Duke(6) of the country became jealous and wanted to own this ottoman(7). So, the alchemist became a wanted person and had to flee into the forest to find a place to hide. After staggering(8) around for hours, hungry and tired, he stumbled upon an overgrown garden(9). An old lady appeared, offering him shelter from the bitter cold.  She looked at the alchemist with surprise(10) and said: “I will protect you, but I need your help first. Years ago I lost something precious and I want it back. You need to climb into the sky and get my cello(11) back. Here is a magical egg(12), throw it into the earth, sprinkle with water and it will sprout a beanstalk. You have 47(13) days to return before the stalk withers.”

The alchemist followed the instructions given to him, and lo and behold, a beanstalk grew and grew and grew all the way up to the clouds. After an exhausting climb, he saw a huge Brownstone(14). He walked to the door and knocked. A hoarse(15) voice said: ‘Fee-fi-fo-fum, who dares to come and enter my house?” The alchemist was not afraid and said: “My name is Jamie and I’ve come to collect an item.”

The door made a shrieking(16) sound when it opened and revealed a large mud room(17) filled with golden shovels(18).  The alchemist stepped inside and walked towards the spiraling staircase, where a figure moved, cloaked in darkness.

“Who are you? Step in to the light, so I can see your face.”

The beast growled angry. “Why did you come here? I just want to be left alone.” Still, the alchemist moved and stood in front of the beast. There were three horns on his head, and hair all over his face and his mouth was filled with large teeth. He wore a grungy leather coat and worn out trousers splattered with dry mud(19).

“What happened to you?” The alchemist reached out to touch one of the horns, but the beast flinched. “Many years ago I was cursed by a witch. I have one year left to kayak(20) so I can break the spell, but I’m not brave enough.”

“If you give me the cello(21), I will help you.”

In keeping its promise, the beast and the alchemist worked for a few hours and that afternoon, the beast transformed into an ordinary older guy. “I can’t wait to return to my job as a chiropractor(22) in the normal world. Can I come with you?” Together they climbed down the beanstalk, carrying the instrument for the old lady. The moment she saw the guy and her beloved instrument, she started to weep.

“My husband, you have returned!” They hugged and looked at the alchemist.

“We have to tell you something,” the old lady said. “You are our child. We were separated after the curse, but now we are reunited!” From that day, the three of them lived together in the forest, happily ever after.

    I love that you picked an alchemist to be your main character! And your story turned out SO great. I especially loved the kayak bit ;)

  2. An Alchemist, awesome! I also love that he stumbled upon an overgrown garden, that’s a super fairytale-ish location. That outfit sounds amazing and fitting for the beast!
