Not long ago, a Beautiful Princess named Evangeline was sitting in her castle looking for new games to play online when she discovered an enchanted land called To play the really neato stuff, Princess Evangeline needed to purchase a Membership, but the Evil Queen was saving up gold to ransom a Missing Princess, and could not be convinced her to partake. Poor Princess Evangeline whined royally.

But then, a Good Fairy from the Land of JumpStart sent the Evil Queen an email asking if she would like to review the website for her Magical Blog! The Evil Queen cried YES!

Within minutes, the Beautiful Princess was utterly addicted to the Land of JumpStart. The Evil Queen was also amazed at the graphics of the program, the perfect balance of fun and education, and especially the way that the new lands changed with the seasons or holidays, which were described in the accompanying Blog for Kings and Queens.

It seemed that the new lands to explore and conquer in the Land of JumpStart were endless: StoryLand was for the smallest princes and princesses, and AdventureLand and MarineLand was perfect for Princess Evangeline. She did not spend much time in FutureLand, as it was designed for more mature princesses. She also liked how the Other Beautiful Princess Magdalene enjoyed JumpStart, spending hours changing the clothes, hair, skin color, and accessories of the Jumpee. Prince Shepherd mostly liked to watch and offer Endless Advice to his sister.

At first the Evil Queen was a little concerned that the Beautiful Princess appeared to be quite obsessed with her new game. But then the Evil Queen, who occasionally had flashes of Royal Brilliance, realized that this was the Magic Spell she had been searching for for years.

The Evil Queen devised a list of Royal Duties that must be completed morning and evening before the Beautiful Princess could enter the magical land of JumpStart.

The Beautiful Princess, who previously was often too tired/too weak/too ill/too confused to perform her Royal Duties, now chooses her own ballgowns, gets dressed, makes her own lunch, puts away her laundry, empties the dishwasher, makes her bed and cleans her room with a speed that can only be described as Magical.

And they all lived happily ever after.

Until a dragon entered the Enchanted Sanctuary, and the Beautiful Princess could not rest until she found food for him and taught him how to fly and breathe fire.

Here the Beautiful Princess will demonstrate for you why she adores JumpStart so much:

The Good Fairy then asked if the Evil Queen would like to give away a three month membership? The Evil Queen was delighted to share the Magical Power for the Accomplishment of Royal Duties with all the other Fair Queens of Blogland.
