Our Grand, Weeks Long Story Event has arrived!!! *virtually dancing on the tabletop while setting off fireworks*
I'm so excited!
For more content specifics (including my current definition of 'epic' for this party + more buttons and banners), be sure to see the first announcement post HERE. But in short, there'll be some good story inspired activities here at Along the Brandywine (to be announced as we go along, so stay tuned) and on your own blog you'll be able to contribute story or theme explorations, movie and book reviews, character studies, general monumental deep story related rhapsodies... whatever you'd love to share. (Again, be sure to check out that announcement post linked above for more guidelines and ideas.)
I'm dividing the party into two three-week long periods and for this first half of the party, I've put together a Would You Rather Tag. Below are the questions for your copying pleasure:
Would you rather...
1) …fight a dragon or a giant?
2) …time travel back to ancient Egypt or go to Mars?
3) …explore a deep dark cave or a long lost, underwater city?
4) …be a court jester or lead a wagon train?
5) …eat a meal with hobbits or Master Tumnus?
6) …walk through an enchanted mirror or jump into a pool leading into another world?
7) …live in a castle or a house in the treetops?
8) …go over a waterfall in a barrel or climb Mt. Everest?
9) …ride a buffalo or be a cannoneer in a sea battle?
10) Bonus question: you’re caught by the Bad Guys and tied up to a chair when a fire erupts at your feet (long story ;)). Do you break the ropes and tumble out the window, yell for help, or hop your chair across the room to take refuge in the cold fireplace/chimney corner?
Important: Whenever you do a post (tag answers, reviews, enthusiastic story raptures, etc), be sure to come back and leave a link to your post in the comments section below this post so everyone else can see it.
Annnnnnd.... *drum roll* we have our first giveaway of the party! It includes two prizes:
A paperback copy of Hodges and Hyman's St. George and the Dragon
And this lovely LOTR wall hanging.
Be sure to leave a comment below with your order of preference! There's one prize per winner. And both items are fairly light/I think I can manage shipping, so this is open for worldwide entries.
I'm looking forward to delving into this with y'all! Have fun and can't wait to see what you come up with!! ;)
Let the festivities commence!
