The Chronicles Of Bitter And Twisted

Everyone knows the story of The Ugly Duckling. A baby duck was small and ugly, scorned by all, but grew into a beautiful swan. Happy Ending. Or was it?

Lesser known, is the other story, of a baby swan who was also small and ugly, scorned by all and grew into a… well, a duck. A bitter duck.
