Screenwriting news and in-depth analysis from a devoted, yet mysterious, student of the craft.
Who is this little girl and what did she grow up to become?
(This is, in fact, a photo of our very own - Miriam Paschal.)
Her name was Lea Katherine Thompson and she grew up to become Beverly Switzler, former art model, near-constant companion and occasional lover of Howard from the planet Duckworld.
She's the granddaughter of Peter Kurten, the vampire of Dusseldorf. She grew up to found a bird sanctuary in Canada.
Her name is Lilly Van Buren, the inventor of the childrens board game "Duck, Duck, Goose, Goose"
Mother Goose: The Early Years
She's actually a little boy, a distant cousin of Danish royalty, who grew up to Hans Christian Anderson.
Kissed by a handsome prince, Elderberry Ouch was transformed back into a little girl. As she bid farewell to her adopted duck father, Slipknot Tucas, she swore that she would spend her life partying like it was 1999.She did.
I see that Unk has not participated lately. Are these characters too hard to work into his ongoing story about Las Vegas? Is the rewrite taking too much time?In the last installment, Paco was rushing out the door to play craps. Where could the story possibly go next?
