BLJaR Meet The Swan Princess Chapter 1
“Benny, Leo, Johnny, and Rae Meet The Swan Princess”
*The story begins in a castle, a Renaissance-like structure, where a single gentleman paces on one side of the room to another. But not just any man, this man happened to be the ruler of a glorious nation. This was King William, but though he had everything that a noble king could ask for something deeply troubled this aging King. A desire that he longed to have for years*
Narrator: Once upon a time, there was a king named William, who ruled a large and mighty kingdom, and yet he was sad, for he was growing old and had no child to inherit the throne.
*Just then, one of the castle maidens rushed forward to King William, holding a pink bundle of sorts in presentation to the King. The moment he looked at what she held, a smile came upon his face. He then takes the bundle and looks down upon what was inside, taking this precious gift towards the castle balcony*
Narrator: Then, happily, a daughter was born… A

*It was a warm, sunny day in Ponyville. By all account, the summer's pomp was still at its height, but there was something in the air of this particular day that spoke of change on the horizon. One the lake just outside of the village, the waterfowl gathered their fledged young into great flocks. Deep in the Everfree Forest, the animals made good for their long winter sleep. Even Zecora could smell the approach of autumn in the air and began to seal the cracks in the walls of her hut accordingly*
*At Sweet Apple Acres, the Apple family were preparing for harvest season. Big Mac pulled carts full of baskets out into the orchards, aided by their cousin, Caramel. Apple Bloom helped Granny Smith prepare the kitchen for the soon-to-come influx of apples to make cider, jam, apple butter and other goods to sell and live off of through the winter. On the hill above the house, Applejack oversaw the whole of her family's homestead. Just then, Rainbow Dash came flying in from out of the clouds*

*At the hour of dawn, the fighter pilots were getting ready to board their planes. One of the pilots at the end was about to get in, when a swat to the neck knocks him out cold. Heath stands over the body, with none of the others paying attention. Snickering, Heath quickly takes the pilot's gear as his own and attaches the camera to the top of the plane as he prepares to board*
Heath: *takes a deep breath* My mother always said I should look on the up-side of life. Soon, I'll have the last piece of footage of Kong's full impact in this period. *snaps his finger* But wait! Why settle with that? Why, a notable film director once took part in a scene where he actually slays the beast. *smiles deviously* So why pass up? *starts the engine* Call me a hypocrite, but no one shall have the beast but me.
*Soon, Heath joins up with the other fighter pilots into the air in a V-line formation as they make their way to the Empire State Building. By now, the beast had since been climbing

*About a month after, New York was abuzz with activity as a theater shows a bright electric sign, "KING KONG, EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD". Below it was another sign that read, “CARL DENHAM’S GIANT MONSTER”. All around the theater, crowds gathered outside waiting to see what Carl Denham, the man of the hour, had to show to his fellow audiences this time*
Man #1: Say, what's Denham got anyway?
Man #2: Well, it better be good after all this valley-who.
Woman #1: Heavens, what a mob.
Man #3: Well, you would come. These tickets cost 20 bucks!
*By the time the audience were inside the theater, everyone started to get in their seats facing a large curtain that covered nearly the entire stage. But of course, some people were not satisfied with their seating arrangements*
Woman #2: I can't sit so near the screen! It hurts my eyes!
Man #4: This is not a moving picture, madam.
Woman #2: What? But Mr. Denham makes those pictures of those darling monkeys and tigers and t

*Later, Kong had been carrying Ann towards the cliffs of Skull Island. Following closely and quietly, Driscoll and the three leaders of the Fantasy Adventure Team keep a safe distance as they find themselves entering a deep, dark cave on one side of a mountain. Inside the mountain, there are some tar pits and small streams boiling hot as if the mountain was atop an underground volcano. Kong enters, as do Driscoll and the others*
Rae: Phew! It's like a sauna in here! How could anybody live in a place like this with all that fur?
Benny: *wipes his brow* I guess having lived on this island for so long, the beast probably doesn't care. It's the only world he's known.
Leo: Come on, guys. We're that much close to Ann. *speaks quietly* Proceed with caution.
*So they continue their way through the cave, just as Kong has Ann settle on a ledge. The girl backs away from the beast in fright, as Kong can't help but feel it's not alone. As Ann settles in, watching Kong look around, somethi

*Meanwhile, Ann awakens from her faint, only to find herself on a dead tree top. She looks around and about, when she screams at the sight of a giant meat-eating dinosaur entering the glade. A bipedal carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long, heavy tail complete with small forelimbs boring two clawed digits. It was a Tyrannosaurus Rex, one of the largest carnivores that ever lived, and when it saw Ann, it comes towards her as she shrieks. Her screams alerting the remaining team members of their presence, including Kong's, who rushes towards her aid*
Rae: Hey! I know those screams anywhere!
Benny: It's Ann!
Leo: She's in trouble!
*Just as the T-Rex had the girl in it's jaws, it stops when it finally sees Kong standing face-to-face with the vicious beast. The gorilla leaps onto the dinosaur's back, biting it's jaws with his fangs as the T-Rex struggles to shake him loose. Kong is shook loose and barely manages to block the carnivore's jaws, which latched tightly on Kon

*Working their way into the jungle, the group makes their way through the trees with great caution making sure that they don't lose the trail that Kong left in their path. But it was still so dark in the jungle, with the trees covering the sky, they almost couldn't see the trail*
Denham: No telling which way he went in this darkness.
Driscoll: He’s been through here. *points* Look at these broken branches.
Denham: Yeah, look at that. Keep up, fellas.
Driscoll: It ought to be sunup about now.
Denham: Yeah, just listen to those birds. It's dawn all right.
Leo: So Benny, let me get this straight. You're telling us that you actually saw Kong?
Benny: I'm not sure what I saw, Leo, but there's no mistaking just what we're dealing with.
Rae: Can you remember what he looked like?
Benny: It looked like some sort of gorilla. Look. *points to a tall tree* Picture that tree among the others, only slightly taller than that.
Johnny: Oh, come on, Benny, there's no way a gorilla can gro

*Over time, the day turned to night, as a bright moonlight hovered over the Venture. Not much activity took place, except for on deck where several members of The Fantasy Adventure Team were fuming over what had just happened earlier that day*
Leo: I can't believe this! How could a man like Denham not to think to tell us about this "Kong" business in the first place?
Benny: There's a lot of things that Denham hasn't told us since we got here, Leo. I hate it to break it to you, but I just don't think Denham's the man you thought he was.
Johnny: What I wanna know is… Just what is behind that wall anyway?
Rae: I'll tell you this, guys. I've hardly seen anything like it: An enormous wall, stretching all across that piece of land we just went ashore.
Xiro: And what about that one girl with all the flowers?
Teresa: Poor thing, why I reckon she looked as though she were too frightened to be frightened, if you know what I mean?
Leo: *nods* Just as I suspected: Sacrifice.

*Sometime later, a heavy fog builds up along the bridge, outside the wheel-house. The Fantasy Adventure Team, Heath, Denham, Ann, Driscoll, and Englehorn are at the rail peering ahead. Sailors peer along the look-out in the bow, one sailor heaving lead, and sailors cluster at bulwarks on the main deck, watching for a trace of the island*
Heath: Hmm... Fog's as thick as peanut butter.
Johnny: You mean, pea soup?
Heath: You eat what you eat, I'll eat what I eat.
Denham: This infernal fog. Sure of your position, Skipper?
Englehorn: *very nervous, but offended at the suggestion* Of course. Last night, before this fog shut down, I got a good sight.
Denham: We must be near the island.
Leo: Why doesn't that make me feel better?
Driscoll: If we don't see it when this fog lifts, we never will. We've quartered these parts.
Leo: Yep… That does it.
Teresa: Now, no need for fretting. I'm sure these sailors know what they're doin'… I hope.
