“Every fairytale needs a good old-fashioned villain.” -Jim Moriarty
Which side are you on? This week we’re featuring a new contest meant to spark your creativity… and morals.
Imagine with us, if you will…
You have an evil twin.
Your evil twin has one special power.
You have one special power.
Do you use your power for good to fight your twin? Or for evil to join forces? In celebration of Elsie Chapman’s sequal to Dualed, Divided, we have a brand new contest!
