I actually was thinking about something like this last night. Sort of a twist of the Cinderella fairy tale....except with two Cinderellas and two princes instead of one. I know there was a Muppet Babies episode where Piggy played Cinderella, I'm just going to say a lot of it (or....pretty much all of it) will NOT be based off that episode. On a brighter note, those of you who are KermitxMiss Piggy and FloydxJanice supporters will enjoy this story! (Keep in mind, this is my first time writing a story involving KermitxMiss Piggy, so wish me luck). Disclaimer: I DO NOT OWN ANYTHING. The Muppets are owned by Jim Henson, Muppet Studios and the Walt Disney Company. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Chapter 1: Piggy and Janice's Prologue/ A Visit From The Kingdom of Hard Rock Once upon a time..............no scratch that. A long time ago.......no. Okay let's cut to the point! There lived two beautiful, but poor, young maidens, Piggy and Janice. Unlike every other Cinderella story, they do not have ugly stepsisters nor do they have a greedy, ugly, and evil stepmother bent on making their lives miserable. Instead, they unfortunately live together in a terrible house in the poorest section of the Muppet Kingdom. They were forced to live together under the "usual rules" of the poor section of the kingdom (If you're born poor, it's best to find a buddy to be poor with). They both were forced to do each others chores, as usual. Unfortunately, Piggy and Janice had plenty of differences. Piggy was usually over dramatic, spoiled and sometimes cruel. Janice was cool, calm and collected. Piggy hated annoying animals. Janice loved them and they always assisted her on her chores. Piggy hated doing the chores. Janice didn't care. However, it's these differences that make these two young maidens the best of friends for life. But we'll come back to these two in the next chapter............... In the meantime, on the other (royal) side of the Muppet Kingdom, lived Prince Kermit. Prince Kermit was the ruler of the Muppet Kingdom, after his father (the king) passed it down to him before his death. Now Prince Kermit was a very straight forward and organized ruler, and he was very kind and friendly to his peasants and servants (Unfortunately, he has no control over the poor section of the kingdom. That's under someone else.....) One day, he was expecting a visit from his good friend, King Teeth, from the neighboring Hard Rock Kingdom. As he was preparing for his visit, his royal jester, Fozzie, came to him. "Hey Prince Kermit!" Fozzie called to him. "I have this new joke I'm going to tell to King Teeth when he comes. You wanna hear it?" "Sure," Prince Kermit said, sounding kind of depressed. "Okay!" Fozzie started and cleared his throat. "So....what do a boy and girl have in common when they fall in love after a rainstorm?" "I don't know. What?" Prince Kermit said. "A "Rainbow Connection"!" Fozzie replied. "Wocka wocka! Eh? Eh?" Prince Kermit laughed a little, but then sighed. "What's the matter, Kermit?" Fozzie then asked. "Oh...nothing," Prince Kermit sighed again. "C'mon, you tell me everything. Jesters are a Prince's best friend," Fozzie said. "What's on your mind, princey pie?" "It's just......well.........." Prince Kermit started before he was interrupted by................ "GOOD MORNING, MUPPET KINGDOM!" cried a voice from the door way. Enter King Teeth, the fairest and most rockin and totally hip king of Hard Rock Kingdom. Along with him was his duke, Zoot; his "son", Prince Floyd; and Prince Floyd's "trusty steed" and best friend, Animal. "And a special good morning to you, my froggy prince friend," King Teeth finished. "Good morning, King Teeth," Prince Kermit said, still sounding depressed. "Why so low, man?" King Teeth asked in concern. "Looks like he caught a bad case of the blues instead of the greens," Zoot commented. "You know, it's not easy being green," Prince Kermit replied. "But, I've been very depressed lately. And I think I know why. I think....I think I need to marry." "Well what a coincidence!" King Teeth responded happily. "Prince Floyd here has been dying to find a girl to be with for weeks!" Prince Floyd then looked away in embarrassment from King Teeth's comment. "I guess his guitar is not the only one that's gently weeping at night," Fozzie responded and laughed. "Get it?" Prince Floyd continued to look away and give the silent treatment. "Awww come off it, Floyd," Zoot said. "You have to admit. You said to me you gotta find a girl or you else can't "Viva La Vida" anymore." "WE VIVA LA VIDA! WE VIVA LA VIDA!" Animal begged to Prince Floyd. Prince Floyd rolled his eyes and responded "Well....I guess....Okay....I need to find a princess. Someone who's into music like I am. Someone who will stay by my side and stuff. Someone with true honesty." "Now that's the outspoken prince we know and love!" King Teeth replied. "Okay, so Prince Kermit needs a wife and so does Prince Floyd," Fozzie recalculated. "But...how are we going to do this?" "Well if this was a fairy tale...." Prince Floyd started. "Which it is," King Teeth interrupted. "We'd think of something extremely clever for us to look all over the kingdom for a girl, Frog Prince," Prince Floyd finished. "Like.......hold a ball combining the two kingdoms to find a fair maiden to be our brides?" Prince Kermit suggested. "You're absolutely, positively right!" King Teeth responded. "When will we have the ball?" Zoot asked. "Friday night?" Fozzie suggested. "But Fozzie, tomorrow is Friday," Prince Kermit said. "That means we can have the ball tomorrow!" Fozzie said in excitement. "Have we got a deal, Frog Prince?" Prince Floyd asked, approaching Prince Kermit. "We've got a deal!" Prince Kermit said and shook hands with Prince Floyd. "PARTY! PARTY! PARTY! PARTY!" Animal yelled in excitement, jumping up and down. ------------------------------End of Chapter 1------------------------------------ How's it so far guys? I know there's not much Piggy and Janice this chapter, but trust me, there'll be more of them the next chapter.
