Land of Stories: A Grimm Warning – Week 3

The Grande Armee has overthrown the Pinocchio Prison, and one of the prisoners, the Masked Man, has offered his services to the General. He knows that in order to overthrow the Fairy Government they will need a dragon. He is doing his best to stay in the good graces of the General who wants to get rid of him as soon as possible.Meanwhile the Fairy Council is meeting to determine the course of action. Alex knows that she has to keep her head and make the best decisions that she can. If she is going to be the next Fairy Godmother, then she has to make sure that she always puts her best foot forward. Failure to keep the Fairy council safe will result in the loss of everything she loves, and the end of their world as they know it.

First she summons all the monarchs of the surrounding kingdoms, and informs them of the impending war that is coming. She wants all of the armies split into two, and one section put into hiding, while the other remains in view to mount the first defense of the cities. She also wants all the monarchs out of sight, and minimize the risk of capture.

With Alex facing her first major crisis as the new Fairy Godmother – in training, what better person to have with her than her brother Conner. With a massive war fixing to break out over the kingdom, she must unite the outlying kingdoms, namely the elves and the goblins. But convincing them won’t be easy. Alex and Conner know that they have to try though. They go first to the Troll kingdom, where Queen Trollbella has turned her city into a floating city. Life has been extremely boring for the trolls since they have moved above ground. Trollbella is excited to see her Butterboy return, and several of the trolls are excited to escape the water world and join the army to do so.

But things are about to get very interesting for the twins…
