Mia Wallace meets the Mad Hatter


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Pleased to Meet You.”

“”Mia had had a wonderful time with Vincent the night that it happened. Emotions were flying, and she realized that she may have been a little to friendly with him, however she knew that he would never say anything to Marsellus. Vincent was terrified of him, even though he worked for him. But who wouldn’t be? Even Mia was to a degree, and that was her husband.

Vincent came inside after taking Mia to a 50s style restaurant, and asked if he could use the restroom, Mia pointed him in the direction of the room and told him that she would make them drinks while she waited. Instead of going through with that though, she found a little bit of heroin in Vincent’s jacket pocket. Now Mia was a beautiful and classy woman, but she had a hard time…

The Writer-To-Be

Just assume that the world of Harry Potter meets the world of Twilight!

Harry: Cedric! You’re alive… How?
Edward: Carlisle here changed me.
Carlisle: We are vegetarian Vampires.
Hermione: Vegetarian, how can a vampire be vegetarian.
Emmet: We drink only animals’ blood.
Lavender: You sick filthy people.
Jacob: I’m a werewolf.
Lupin: How can you be so casual about it? Doesn’t transformation hurt? Every bone in your body breaking and repairing itself?
Jacob: Well, no, since I can transform anytime, I’ve gotten used to it!
Greyback: That’s impossible, no full moon?
Jacob: Um, no… Here I’ll show you

Wizards and Vampires.

They, You and Me

Write a post in which the protagonists of two different books or movies meet for the first time. How do they react to each other? Do they get along?


”Hey Edward” called Harry.” Do you really love Bella?”

”Of course Harry!” said Edward. ”Why don’t you spell some magic on her, so she forgets Jacob once for all.”

”Sure would do anything to help you!.” exclaims Harry. ”After all when would my magic come to use.”

Edwards laughs and hugs Harry.

”This friendship between a wizard and a vampire will rewrite history!” said Harry.

Bella walks in and sees there are two Edwards standing in front of her.

One of them is Harry. Bella thinks he is the real Edward and hugs him.

”Damn, what was happening?” thought Harry. He felt a shiver run down his spine.

Was he falling in love with Bella?

Rocket Raccoon meets Donkey

Am I A Geek?

Pleased to Meet You

Write a post in which the protagonists of two different books or movies meet for the first time. How do they react to each other? Do they get along?

– – –

It was a meeting like none other.

Some may call it a coincidence that Groot had wandered off into the swamp distracted by a butterfly forcing Rocket to drag his furry body into a natural habitat. The trip to this planet had been one for a bounty poster he had happened to come across in a galaxy far far away for a monster of some sort going by the name of Shrek. Little did he know, this Shrek happened to be ‘The Shrek’ and little did he know, he would stumble across another talking animal.

For someone like Donkey, this was a dream come true. Having lived his life amongst unpleasant talking animals such as…

Snow White and Her Several Injustices


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Pleased to Meet You.”

Write a post in which the protagonists of two different books or movies meet for the first time. How do they react to each other? Do they get along?

Whilst Snow White retreats in the woods from the wicked queen and step-mother, her skin as pale as snow, she cooks, cleans, and sings to the birds and animals while her seven little men run off to work. They queue to kiss her on the cheek on their way out, some enchanted by her beauty and love her, whilst others despise all the changes she’s swinging around. She’s quite happy in this little retreat, a cosy cabin in the woods, safe from harm and sure her true love will come to ‘rescue’ her once and for all for a real happy ending.

Elsa, however, is the ice queen. Literally. She…

Double Lives

This is a little secret that all writers share: We have two lives; the one we live on Earth and the one we live in our books. - Chrys Fey

The Introductory Poem

f there truly was a god, he’ll come to our aid Whether is light, darkness, warmth or snow And save us from this ghoulish raid And then I’ll know That there is some sort of heavenly power Stronger than mountains, gentler than a flower Watching over us at each and every hour Protecting us when things turn sour But as the town turns to dust I’m forced to believe That the illusion of an heavenly power is nothing more than a dream And as my strength is being relieved I believed we have all been deceived
