[ID: 6 gifs of Lemony Snicket from ASOUE. He is standing in a dark tunnel with dim lights behind him; he lights up a matchstick to illuminate his face, and puts it out in the last gif. He says, “If you are interested in stories with happy endings, then you would be better off somewhere else. In this story, not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning, and very few happy things in the middle.”
“My name is Lemony Snicket, and it is my solemn duty to bring to light the sorry history of the Baudelaire children as it happened so many years ago. But you in the audience have no such obligation, and I would advise all our viewers to turn away immediately and watch something more pleasant instead.” End ID.]
A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS: 01x01, “THE BAD BEGINNING”
This story will be dreadful, melancholy and calamitous, a word which here means “dreadful and melancholy.” That is because not very many happy things happened in the lives of the Baudelaires.
