Grandpa: Westley didn’t reach his destination. His ship was attacked by the Dread Pirate Roberts, who never left captives alive. When Buttercup got the news that Westley was murdered…
Grandson: Murdered by pirates is good.
My first memory of The Princess Bride is actually about 10 minutes into the movie: my parents were watching it, and my dad told me to come join in, saying I'd enjoy it. Obviously he was right, but he didn't have great timing — it was in the middle of the scene with the shrieking eels. Not exactly a great selling point for a 10 year old raised on Disney movies.
But this story has a happy ending, because I ended up watching the rest, and The Princess Bride became a cornerstone of my childhood. I watched it countless times as a kid, enough to memorize every single line. Since then, it's been one of my favorite movies of all time.
The layout is simple, but I like how it came out. The background is based off a texture by namikazes.
