Princesses to the Rescue
Frequenters of my blog are already aware I'm a hardcore fairytale fan. Ever since I was little, I've dreamt of witches and wily frogs, spun new endings for tales I didn't like, and came up with side stories detailed enough to qualify as fanfiction.
One thing always rankled, however. Why the heck were princes always rescuing princesses?
You see, as much as a girl would like to be swept off her feet every now and again, we all realize at a pretty young age that matters of any importance should not be left in the hands of boys. They have a tendency to trip over their feet, forget the important details, and, more times than not, their bumbling attempts to solve problems make things even worse.
As I've aged (no, I'm not going to reveal how old I am), my faith in the male gender has yet to improve. After all, I've sent my significant other many a time to buy a gallon of milk, only to have him return with everything but a gallon of milk. So if my Princess has to wait on top of her tower until a charming yet altogether clueless knight rides by, chances are she'll wait for a very long time. Heck, considering most men's reluctance to ask for directions, he may never get there.
So when I was tasked to write my own adult fairytale, I was forced to face reality. I can't, in good conscience, ask my heroine to twiddle her thumbs until my bumbling hero decides to rescue her. In Operation Owl, I twisted the formula, and sic'd my geeky math nerd against a slew of NSA sleuths and gun-wielding contractors. She gets to rescue her prince (aka, computer-geek-in-distress), and she makes sure they jet off toward a happily ever after.
Of course, darling Zack has his uses. You can find out all about them in the 99¢ Red Book of Grown-Up Fairytales. If I hadn't already grabbed most of these stories individually, I would take advantage of this deal myself!
