TOWER, TOWER – [Prologue]
Princess Bubblegum of the Candy Kingdom is a restless child. To put her to sleep at night, her servants read her stories.
Oh, stories: from the pages of a great golden leatherbound book they come, tales of pirates on seas broader than imagination, driving their ships full of treasure across foaming waves. There are sagas in the book too of thieves with good hearts—chronicles of stolen children and their faerie folk kidnappers, yarns about little girls who hear other worlds in the furls of seashells. There are fables, warnings against pride, vanity, power: there are stereotypes, evil stepmothers and ghastly witches, poisoned apples and sleep-forever spindles. There are cursed princes, talking teapots, wholesome maidens. There are other princesses, wusses who—in Bubblegum’s tender young opinion, anyway—need to grow some freaking buns and brains already.
Of all the stories, though, there is one in particular she asks to hear almost every evening.
“Tell me again about Marceline,” she insists, digging her cheek into her pillow. “Please, Peppermint?”
Her butler feigns a surprised gasp. “Really? Yet again?”
“Yet again,” she reinforces, plucking off her tiara and kneading her toes in her bedsheets. “Marceline! Marceline!”
I’m afraid I prematurely shot my wad on what was supposed to be a dry run, if you will. So now I’m afraid I have something of a mess on my hands.
