But anyway, I found this site by clicking on this article about Gender in Marketing, specifically re: Black Widow from the Avengers. After perusing a few other articles, I found an interesting contest that asks people to create an origin story for an existing character. I only had 1 day to do it, and there were already some great origins listed, so at first I was hesitant about entering. But then I thought, hey, why not?
I decided to write an origin story for Big Bird, strange as that may sound. He's a character who has been around for ages without anyone exploring why he is on Sesame Street or how he got there. I *may* have taken it a bit dark. Have a read and tell me what you think: The Day Jim Bird Died
