Once upon a time in Vancouver by olafpriol Once upon a time in Vancouver by olafpriol
I am a horrible person.

I SWEAR I DIDN'T MEAN TO. IT'S JUST AN INTERESTING FACT, OKAY. BLAME PENNY DREADFULS.

Also for those of you wondering why the hell I appear to have died I BASICALLY HAVE. I'm on a very very VERY intensive animation course so really I wouldn't expect anything out of me for about a year.

This comic is only a result of our class deciding it would be cool for us to draw a strip of something funny that has happened to us since we moved here. So really it's more homework.

8D YEY.

I do the same things to all my friends (now and when I was 8), only with the old Grimm (and other original versions ) Fairytales. Watch the lights drain from their eyes and the magical world of Disney wither and die as I recount to them the tail of The Little Mermaid and how no, she does not end up with Prince Eric, but instead of killing him to save herself, turns into sea foam. 

I was a terrible child >:D

As a Canadian with an interest in Gruesome European folklore I can whole-heartedly say that it does in freak the crap out of other Canadians and their offspring.

This has proceeded to happen to me four time's in the past two and a half year's but i end up sayin' stuff like "that's absoloutly dreadfull" or "a terrible end to have that happen to one's self." so people don't think i'm some kind of sir pyscho crazy face at the end of the conversation. (and yes i do talk like how that sound's and also i am an american.)

Wish I could say that American's in all their craziness are less likely to be freaked out by such, but as a recent discussion rudely overheard, about manticores reminded me that it is not such.
