I have a pathological fear of teddy bears...

Well, that's a bit of an overstatement, but I hate stuffed animals. Never liked them even as a child.

ThanksEilas!

I believe that the idea of these contests is not just to create great stories, but to develop our imaginations and creativity!

I wrote the story, (well, typed it! LOL) and then thought that it might work better as an "Audiobook"
(...as if we were actually there - hearing the story being told by the camp-fire!)

I believe that fits in very well with the challenge that Swanne set for us?

Edit to add:
"Fear of stuffed animals and teddies?" argghh - sorry! I didn't know that.
That can't be much fun at all.


kindest regards, and thanks for taking the time to comment!

The words "good" "great" and "excellent" do not seem adequate to express my admiration for your story and video.

Thank you my friend.
High praise indeed.

Coincidentally Gail also got something in her eye when she was reading your response to her.

Oh, I definitely think it's a great format. I was just wary of doing something like this because it's not a traditional written story. Personally, I wanted to add in images, perhaps with writing overlaid on top.
(My voice isn't cut out for narration, sadly.)

Images are fine too Eilas!
(Our last story contest was an images one!)
So long as the story is there and readable?
Cool!

PS - My story was written too! (The audio was an added bonus!)

Awwwwww! How sweet! I have a very old, rather patched together teddy, so worn and threadbare and repaired that she looks a bit scary. I passed her onto my youngest, and she's still watching over him while he sleeps.

S&F!

Hello Gordi! Wonderful story, just wonderful! And I could understand every one of your words
*proud that I didn't just lose myself in an accent, haha*

Now I have the urge to make rhymes... hmm.

Thanks B!
I am very pleased that my narration was... even remotely intelligible!
We Scots do tend to rush our spoken word and bluuuuurrr all the words together into ONEBIGWORD!

I'm "fair chuffed" that you liked it!
Now - Go Rhyme! LOL

You just came up in my subscribed threads. I had wanted to keep this so I could listen to the vid again.

Dude, did you piss off the pixies?

That is awesome!!!! Love the whole thing, and reading it aloud, with that accent, chills!! Amazing entry, and love the ending as well.

Had one I considered real as a kid. I was sure he would come to life and rip apart/eat anyone that came in the house and tried to bother me!
