The Return of the Evil Queen


Five long years had passed

Snow White and the Prince

Were living beyond the forest

Upon a hill with their two daughters

Little twin copies of Snow White herself

The seven little dwarfs had remained lifelong friends

And were often seen at the castle

The two little girls Ebony and Snow

Loved their little uncles

Especially Dopey

Who loved playing games

Came a stormy and dark night

Lightning flashed and thunder crashed

It was on nights like this that the seven dwarfs

Were reminded of the time they had chased the Evil Queen

From the cliff to what they thought was her death

Far down below in the gulley

Frozen in time lay the Evil Queen

Suddenly a lightning bolt struck

Sending sparks high up into the air

And she opened up her eyes

For a moment the Evil Queen

Seemed confused

Then she remembered

Still in the guise of the old hag

She arose up out of her grave

Remembering it all like it was just yesterday

The Evil Queen made her way up the cliff

She was eager to find Snow White’s grave

Sure that it must be near the cottage of the seven dwarfs

Reaching the top she cackled in glee

And hurried forward

To her surprise no grave to be found

Reaching the clearing she saw the dwarfs’ cottage

Peering in the window she saw the seven little men were there

Surely they no longer remembered her

She’d be just an old woman passing by

And she rapped upon the cottage door

It was Dopey who opened the door

He stared at her in amazement

So much she looked like an old witch

It was Grumpy that shoved him aside

And inquired what the old hag wanted

Memories stirring within

Doc stepped up to the door

At that moment a ray of sun

Lit up a framed picture on their mantle

At that moment the Evil Queen

Saw in that picture

Snow White, her Prince and two little girls

Realizing that Snow White lived

Without another word she turned

Rushing off into the forest

It was then that the seven dwarfs realized what had happened

The Evil Queen rushed to her castle

Only there she discovered that everything had changed

It appeared she was no longer welcome

In her guise of the old hag she pounded on the door

A servant opened the door and got quite a fright seeing a hag

Before she could say a word

He inquired what she wanted of the King and his Queen

The King had remarried

She backed away and feeling uneasy the servant slammed the door

Evil glinting in her eyes

She rushed around to the side of the castle

There hidden away all these years was the door to her laboratory

Deep down underneath the castle

Tearing at brambles and bush

Not caring that they scratched

The Evil Queen uncovered the oak door

With inhuman strength she yanked it open

Years of darkness poured out

Huge cobwebs, spiders and rats

She hurried down the steep stairs

With only a thin stream of light coming in from two windows

She saw with pleasure that nothing had been disturbed

Her laboratory had been shut off from the rest of the castle

But the shelves were full of her powders and potions

It was all there and she was eager to get out of the hag’s guise


Meanwhile the seven dwarfs were hurrying up the hill

They had to warn Snow White that the Evil Queen was alive

Ebony and Snow were playing in the garden

And the seven little men knocked upon the castle door

The housekeeper was delighted to see them

As they dashed into the Great Hall

At first Snow White smiled then fear came over her

The seven little men looked serious and glum indeed

The Prince had gone off hunting and she was alone

When Snow White heard that the lightning

Had released the Evil Queen from the frozen gulley

She was very much afraid

The seven dwarfs stayed to await the return of the Prince

By now the Evil Queen had lit up some candles

And was preparing to concoct a potion

She had found her old spell book

Quite molded in the dank cellar

But she could still read the spells

It was then that her faithful raven came flying in

He landed upon her shoulder

Cawing in delight that his mistress had returned

She shooed him away and knowing that magic was afoot

He found the old skull in which he had once hid

Sending spiders and rats scurrying about

There he crouched and peered out

The Evil Queen got her potion brewing

And when a poof of smoke wafted in the air

She drank it down fast

The raven cawed in fear

But much to both of their surprise

The Evil Queen remained an old hag

In great anger she searched through her book of spells

The Prince had returned

And when Snow White informed him of what had occurred

He left the seven dwarfs to watch his family

And jumping upon his horse rode off to see the King

The King was very much taken aback

Learning that the Evil Queen had awakened

She’d just been frozen in time

Both the King and the Prince

Knew it would be great disaster

If the Evil Queen discovered her Magic Mirror

Where it had been shuttered away down in the laboratory

But by now quite in despair and anger

The Evil Queen looked about her

Her evil eyes narrowing

She saw something tall draped in white

It was rippling underneath

The Magic Mirror sensing her presence

Was waking up

She pulled off the sheet and the eyes of the mirror opened

With sarcastic politeness the Magic Mirror said,”Oh, evil one you have returned.”

The Evil Queen waved a hand through the air

Informing the Magic Mirror she had to regain her regal splendor

Oh, how he didn’t want to help

But he knew she had regained her powers

He had to obey

With a sigh he informed her of the fresh herbs she would need

And the Evil Queen with the raven upon her shoulder

Rushed up out of the laboratory and into the forest

When the Prince and the King discovered the laboratory open

They knew that the Evil Queen was somewhere nearby

The Magic Mirror informed them of the impending danger

To everyone but especially to Snow White and her daughters

So the Prince and the King decided to return to Snow White

There they would wait for the Evil Queen

Leaving guards at the laboratory to keep her from her spells

They knew her anger would be so great

That she would fairly fly to the Prince’s castle

But the Evil Queen wasn’t about to let her plans fail

She had found the herbs she need and returned to the laboratory

When the guards barred her way

She simply reached into her cloak

And blew some sleeping dust at them

They fell at the foot of the stairs fast asleep

Then the Evil Queen concocted her potion

And drank it down

She fell in a great puff of smoke

Lightning and thunder flashed


The raven cawed in fright and the Magic Mirror winced

When he dared open his eyes

The Magic Mirror saw the Evil Queen

Rising up off of the floor

But the years had taken their toll

And even though she was no longer an old hag

Her face was pale and wane

Her dark hair streaked with gray

So angry was she that she shook from head to toe

Muttering to herself she made up a potion

This would poison them all

Then she would reign over the forest and the kingdom

Then evil would have its chance

And the Evil Queen laughed long and hard

It was then that the Magic Mirror

Remembered the powers he had

And when the Evil Queen had concocted her poison

After she and the raven left heading for the Prince’s castle

The Magic Mirror gathered all his strength

He teletransported himself to Snow White’s Great Hall

Everyone was greatly surprised to see the Magic Mirror appear

He announced the Evil Queen’s intent

And informed them that he had the power to destroy her

They hid him in the back of the hall and waited for the Queen to appear

It wasn’t very long when a banging sounded upon the door

Two guards led her into the Great Hall

The seven dwarfs were out in the garden with Ebony and Snow

But they climbed upon the window sill to peer in

The Evil Queen raised up her arms

And before she could spew out the poison

The Magic Mirror made himself known

It was as expected so surprised was she

Totally unprepared for this attack

Then the mirror sent out a bolt of lightning

With all the power he could muster

It struck the Evil Queen

And she disintegrated into a pile of ashes

There was much shouting and cheering

That night they all danced and feasted

So glad that the Evil Queen was finally gone forever

The Magic Mirror got a place of honor in the Great Hall

And he could spend his time watching Ebony and Snow

Grow in beauty and grace

Wow Gypsy Rose Lee! I think the 'Return of the Evil Queen' is the sequel we've all been waiting for (for a very long time). Bravo! Your story is exciting and believable. I love the updated Snow White, and happy to see her little friends are still around. Now you need to talk to someone at Disney, Regards, snakeslane

Gypsy, perhaps you should send this to Walt Disney - he might purchase the rights to make a movie sequel. Well done - kept me on the edge all the way to the end. Voted up.

I love this and it would make a great sequel for Disney, as I see others have commented. I have seen a great many different adaptations of the Snow White story over the years, but yours had me captivated right to the end. I was transported back to the Disney version and think yours is a great addition to their Snow White. You have a wonderful imagination. I rated you up and awesome, beautiful and interesting. I'll be sharing this on Facebook and tweeting it too. Truly a fun read!
