Fairytales. Love em? Hate em?
I for one love them. There is just something so uplifting when it comes to a happily ever after.
But which is my favorite? This is a really hard question. I like so many. And I love reading them as much as I love watching the different renditions of them on film.
Of course I watched the Disney versions as a child. I loved Cinderella. But there are also some non-animated versions I liked better. The first one I ever remember seeing that wasn’t animated was Roger and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
But as time went on the movies involving fairytales became so much better.
Loved this version of Cinderella.
But my most favorite would have to be Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.
Now I really wanted to find something with the music from the sound track in it, but as I was looking at the trailers I noticed the music played in them was from Willow. Another awesome movie by the way LOL.
When I was in band we learned to play the music from that sound track and played it for our year end concert. Yeah, first confession, I was a band nerd. Trumpet. Go brass! But the music from this was awesome. I can not tell you how many times I have watched this movie. So this would have to be my favorite fairytale. 🙂
But I must give a nod to Once Upon a Time and Grimm. I love these two television series. 🙂
Check out Seductive Reunion and see why it received five stars. 🙂
So my partners in crime want to know what gets me going. As I am typing this, I notice that no one else has scheduled their post yet, so I am going to make a prediction, LOL. I will probably be the most vanilla one here LOL.
My bullet proof kink would have to be oral sex. Man or woman on the receiving end. I think the image can be very sexy. There are a few times that I have seen this type of thing written pretty bad, but even in those cases I still get that rush reading it.
My favorite way to write this type of scene is with little interspaced pieces of dialogue. Maybe add in a few growls in the case of my werewolf books. But this also is a great way to add in the sense of taste. As writers it is beaten into our heads about always making sure to include the five senses. Well, in this case you can be a little truthful in the saltiness of semen or in your paranormal or sci fi cases you can get really creative. 🙂
So what gets you going, or what shuts you down?
Check out Winter’s Shadow and see why it received multiple five star reviews.
