How we think the fight will go


Dearest fans and dedicated voters,

From all of us here at Unbound Worlds.com, we apologize for the severe damage done to the Unbound Worlds Cage Match Stadium and surrounding neighborhood. We had worked with the greatest minds in the realm to bring you the most entertaining, the most thought provoking fights between your favorite science fiction and fantasy characters, and we have failed you. Looking back, we should have seen this coming a mile away.

We were so excited for this fight. The Fool and Granny Weatherwax share so many incredibly awesome, mind-bending talents. Both have an almost incomprehensible ability to see far into the future, and understand how to guide the flow of time to preserve what’s Right in the universe. Both are frustratingly clever, and have razor-sharp minds. We expected this fight to be epic, discussed and debated for years to come. We were prepared to know that we may not even live to see the true outcome of this match, because both Granny and The Fool tend to work with centuries-long timelines. Theses would be written on the hows and the whys, films would be made and re-made to try and fully capture the complexities of this face-off, poems would be written, ballads would be sung. We expected, no, knew that this match would alter time itself.

Looking back, we didn’t expect that Granny Weatherwax would simply just set the arena on fire. It turns out that she was frustrated the whole concept of Cage Match, being forced to put her powers on display for the entertainment of others, etc. and was particularly miffed that her hotel only had “that god-awful Lipton crap and cheap, plastic-encased biscuits.” Granny has issued a formal apology to those in attendance that day, but we’re not sure if she really meant it.

Please forgive us.

Yours cordially,

Unbound Worlds Cage Match
