THUNDERDOME CEE-TRIPLE-X: Twice Told Tales of Magic and Sparkles



Guess what I love? Retold Fairy Tales. Read em, write em, put em in a stew. I treasure them when theyíre well done. Ah, that last partís the rub, ainít it? Well done. So letís see what you chucklefucks can do with old as balls story elements.

Pick a fairy tale. Perrault, Grimm, Anderson, etc.óyou hopefully know the drat classics (and if you donít youíre on the internet, so Google that poo poo). If you donít/wonít pick one or want to take your chances with what I can give, Iíll pick it for you. I know some obscure poo poo. Once someone takes a story it and all its variants are off the table, so move fast.

You are to then take two to three (and no more) well known elements from that story and use it in your entry. So if you pick, say, Cinderella? You can pick the glass slipper, the midnight deadline, birds pecking the stepsisterís eyes out, mice, and/or many other things in the story. And donít Disneyfy this poo poo. If you pick Snow White and write about some bastard named Doc or Grumpy, thatís fanfic and you can suck a poison apple rear end in a top hat and die. I want the semi-classic stories, none of this Tangled Frozen House of Mouse nonsense.

Things that are not Fairy Tales (including but not limited to): Epics, Poems, Myths, Just So Stories, Aesop's Fables, Fantasy Novels, The Wizard of Oz. Don't game the system.

And to try and get actual stories out of you like swords out of stones (bee tee dubs, that's not a fairy tale), your story must either travel in a lineóbe at a different place at the end than at the beginningóor a circleóend near the same place it started, but with some significant, detectable change.

No: erotica, GoogleDocs, poetry, fanfic, or funky word tricks that put the Head Judgeís vision at stake.

1550 words to turn these frogs into princes or these princes into frogs. Magic at the ready.
