Dear Sea Witch ....

This month on the Blog Chain, Amparo wants us to post a love letter to a villain. How fun! And I have lots of fave villains, but this particular letter is to someone very near and dear to my heart .... I give you,

                                                                         THE SEA WITCH

Dear Ursula,

Okay, sister, I'm gonna give it to ya straight. My dogs are barkin' ... and I don't mean those furry four legged friends, I mean my feet. I'm done with all the walking, running, dancing. I want to SWIM! Please oh please give me fins! I was never truly a land-lubber--my heart just ain't in it. Deep down inside I've always known I was meant to swim. The ocean's my true home. It calls to me every time I see it ... the sound, the smell, the salty taste on my skin.

And let's not forget about all those trippy fish and brain corals. A feast for the eyes! Sure, I know the water's cold and I'll get sick of seaweed salad and sushi for every meal, but I'm willing to sacrifice. And I realize I won't get to see my family all the time, but there's these things called shell phones now. I'll call, I promise! And hey, if you can swing turning the whole fam's feet into fins, I'll be your personal slave .... um, okay, not really... but I'll do a lot of work for you, like dust your cave or polish your pearls or whatever. I'm talkin' mega elbow grease right here. Don't doubt the dedication.

I know you've got it in ya, Ursula. Work with me now. I got a little girl who wishes on stars to be a mermaid and a son who wants to be a professional diver. We got this. And yeah, I know, I know.... there's your price to discuss. Well, I'm open for negotiations. Take my word for it, you don't want my voice... although I'm sure Hubby would beg you to take it. But I've got other attributes, aside from my impressive tidying abilities .... I'm pretty darn good at making up fish tales. BIG ones too. And who doesn't need a good fish tale?

Well, actually, I need one. A fish tail. Which is why I'm writing you this letter. Only you have such awesomely impressive power, and only you, I'd consider making such a barter with. Forget that little mishap with Ariel. You and me, we'll reclaim what you lost. And if I'm lying, I'm a fish faced urchin, and I'll bow before your veloptuous greatness forever.

Come on, girl. Hook a sister up!

I'll be waiting. You've got my shell number. Use it.

Your humble servant,

PK

The SHE-POWER that is URSULA

How about you? Which villain would you write to and show your love, and why?

Sandra Ulbrich Almazan said...

Sounds like a great story idea!

DL Hammons said...

Cassie Mae said...

Oh my gosh this was awesome! I'm so writing to my fav villain!

RachelMaryBean said...

Lol, that was great!

Christine Rains said...

That was fantastic! *LOL*

Ursula is based off of the drag queen "Divine". I thought that was interesting.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That was funny! Believe it or not, Little Mermaid is one of the few Disney cartoons I've never seen.

Lori M. Lee said...

Shell phone XD This is brilliant!!!

Ashley Nixon said...

Oh man. This is probably the only time I wouldn't use LotR Characters. Hmm...yep, have to think about this. lol.

Awesome letter, btw!

Carla White said...

I LOVE Ursula. I've had a plan to dress up as her for Halloween for a while now, just never have occasion to do it. Maybe 2012 is the year!

This might be my choice, but there are a lot of good villains in fiction and movies. Tough! I may also choose Count Olaf from the Lemony Snicket series.

Okay PK, this might be a bit warped, but then anything can happen in fantasy. I don't "feel" Ursula, but as Disney tales go, this wasn't my fav. How about the witch in in Sleeping Beauty? Or maybe the one on the flying bike in The Wizzard of Oz. She out-lived the entire cast afterall? Make up a magic potion, cast a spell or two and color me an appentice. I mean who wouldn't want to whip up a good potion to slay our enemies?

Deniz Bevan said...

What a great choice - and I love your letter! Can I have your shell number, too? :-)

Trisha said...

I love most Disney films, and this was one of my favourites amongst them ;) Ursula is an excellent villain!

Medeia Sharif said...

This was so fun to read. Loved the voice and terms in this.

LTM said...

LOL! Great letter--you don't want my voice, but who doesn't want a fish tail? You do! :D That's a great one. Hmm... who would I write a love letter to... hmm... good question! Umm, Cruella Deville? :D

Phil said...

Great letter! Ursula used to scare me so much as a kid...and I might still be a little frightened of her now...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hey PK! Saw your comment from Friday's post. Not to scare you, but my comment record is 220+...

Pk Hrezo said...

Lol, Alex! That's amazing!! :)

Leslie Rose said...

I'll be Ursula would be a kick at a happy hour. My daughter was Little Mermaid obsessed, so I've clocked some quality time with tentacle woman.

Paul Tobin said...

I would write to the Mekon (1950's Venusian bad boy and tell him to chill out the 60's are on the way and he could be at Woodstock and San Francisco.

William Kendall said...

I knew this guy back in high school who had a bizarre crush on Ariel.

Now if we were talking about Belle, I could understand that!
