Dreams of the Innocent

Denise Ertan

It's merely a little poem I wrote on too little sleep.. but it's adorable ^,^

Children of the Great Eclipse

Yves Jacques

All I'll say is that I'd been reading an awful lot of Tanith Lee, and that the main character does not represent me. :)

Twisted Fairy Tale

Kaegan Cusenbary

The classic elements of all good fairy tales is captured here: a damsel in distress, a witch, a prince, maybe a unicorn and dragon thrown in. However, these classic elements act anything but normal...with a strong willed princess, a prince with a speech impediment, and a witch that secretly wants to become an author, anything can happen...

The Mermaids' Comb

Kirstin Bell

This is a moral fairytale about vanity, and the dangers of being vain or trying to become beautiful through the wrong means. It is very child orientated, but can be enjoyed by all. Storyline- princess jealous of sisters beauty, steals something from mermaid to make her more beaiutiful.

Cat Girl Neko Red Riding Hood

Dean Glencross

The story of little red riding hood thrown into the world of anime. This was done as part experiment, part for the writing course I'm doing. I think it turned out well. Probably needs some more work though. The end seems a little rushed.

Beauty and the Beast, 24-25

Carmel Shachar

C'mon all my male readers, judging by my guy friends if they had the power to be invisible they'd do something similar to what the Beast does. But first... do you believe in Breakfast?

Rose (prolog)

Caroline Nash

This is a rewrite of the 'Sleeping Beauty' tale. I have started over and over many times and here I go once again..please tell me what you think...more chapters depend on your comments.

Through the Woods

Carrie Miller

This poem was inspired by a course I took in fairy tales and folklore. I was particularly intrigued by the idea present in our cultural mythology that states that forests/woods are bad places. Hence this poem.

Wolf's Defence

Peter Blair

The Big Bad Wolf isn't really all that bad. He's been viciously attacked by all sorts of folks out to tarnish his reputation. This story sprang into my mind right after I read Jennifer 'laieanna' Brown's 'Live at Six'. Perhaps she will rouse from her slumber and write some more (/not so subtle hint). ^_^ I always figured that there would be more popular references to the bad wolf in litterature, but I couldn't think of any that I didn't cover. If you think of any others, please let me know!

Little John Long

Alison Grills

Think Thumbellina but a boy and modern day

The Trial

E Purington


Mirror Mirror

Kevin Hosein

A humorous piece about an insane man 'indirectly' obsessed with fairy tales.

The Glass Princess

Lyndsay Gilbert aka Liadan

Romance poem, traditional fairytale

Purty Girl and the Possum

Nadia Rundlett

Gather round, now, ya'll. This here be the story of Laura Ann and her man, a real trailer park Beauty and the Beast.

Brier Rose

Michelle Morrison (May)

This is what I wrote in my creative writing class at summer camp. We each chose a fairy tale to rewrite. I chose Brier Rose (yes, I know it is spelled funny, it is meant to be that way; it's from a book with Grimm's Fairy Tales and it's one of the few relations the two stories have), also known as Sleeping Beauty. It has little to do with the original story, but this is just they way it came out.


Michelle Morrison (May)

This poem came to me in a flurry of obsessions with retold fairy tales. The prince speaks of his latest love, Rapunzel.

The Princess and the Schnauzer

Erin Schmidt

This little vignette about sorcery, schnauzers and the power of romantic poetry is, for the most part, pure silliness, but I think that it's still one of my better-written fairy tales. I began it while I was in high school, and although it's been refined quite extensively since then, certain biases I felt at the time remain clearly apparent.

What to Get the Fairytale Princess With Everything

sarah-amy haley

You would expect the fairytale princess lifestyle - constantly being lavished with gifts, having your every whim tended to - could easily lead to bratish behaviour…You would be right…

Blue Teardrop

Noor Khouraki

A fairytale about the love of an elf for her husband.


Adam Prentis

This is a fantasy story, written in a fairy tale style, but it also has a point. I'll leave that for you to guess, I can only hint that you should look at the latin meanings of the names and the title - Noitroba. It isn't just a stupid name, thought up in the spur of the moment, but an explanation of the whole tale. Oh, and I had a bit of a problem deciding if it was more fantasy or horror, so enjoy.
