Once upon a time before the internet, when personal computers were very simple machines... Saturday morning cartoons had fantasy series in mystical lands with magic, creatures and other supernatural stuff. An often repeated and copied story was, a wizard kidnaps a princess and the hero's rescue her.
After seeing a cartoon with the same tired old trope of the kidnapped princess, I imagined a different story.
An evil sorceress kidnaps a princess and turns her into a small gold figurine. The sorceress visits the royal palace bearing a small gift of a small gold figurine, the princess turned into solid gold!
In junior high school I'd made a crude colored pencil sketch of my idea and forgot about it. I found it filed away in a stack of old art I hadn't seen in years. I dug it out, scanned the drawing and wrote a short story based on my daydream. I looked at the grainy pencil drawing and I decided to clean it up a bit.
