Favorite Continued Storie

Favorite Continued Stories in Cricket? (Does this topic already exist?) 

I liked "In Search Of..." By Joan Lennon (Jan-Apr 2019). The plot and the writing were amazing, and the end...so good. 

The new "False Impressions" one is pretty good too so far. 

I don't think we've had a thread just for continued stories before.

I really liked In Search of, too. I also liked Magnus.

Hellooooo I'm supposed to be on a hiatus but I'm popping in to comment on this! I wanted to mention that neither "In Search Of..." nor "False Impressions" are new stories. They're both repeated from old magazines from a while ago. (I guess like, a long time ago. The 2000s or 2010s, yikes) I really like both of them though. I'm a little bit iffy about Cricket repeating stories but I guess they deserve to be retold so that other people can enjoy them! But yeah, they're not new. They're actually quite a bit older. 

Anyway, some of my favorite continued stories from Cricket are In Search of..., The Star Shard, The Girl Who Writes the Future, and...actually there are a lot. There's that one that I really loved that was a bit of a Cinderella spinoff, but I forget what it was called. It was about this girl with a kind father and wicked stepsisters and this prince who could turn into a bird, and the prince was supposed to be married to this nasty princess who had him under a spell or something and the girl ended up making this long journey to rescue him. It was great. I really like the continued stories because they can be told in much more depth than a single short story that's just a few pages.

I know there are also a lot more that I'm not mentioning that I can't think of right now, ugh!

Hopping in to tell you that that story probably wasn't a Cinderella spinoff as much as a version of a different fairy tale called The Lady and the Lion! I hunted down a retelling of it that I did in a certain solo write that it turns out you were a part of, Leafy - you even posted in it telling me the name! The story you're thinking of, when published in Cricket, was called "Catarina and the Bright Falcon."

I loved the one about the three tasks.  it was called "The Three Impossible Tasks" I think?

Wow I didn't know they reused stories. I've only been getting Cricket for like three years (was it four? I don't remember...) wellll I'm glad they do otherwise I wouldn't have read those stories 

I think "Three Impossible Tasks" was jan-feb 2020 or something.
