*The Fairy Tales* Prince Charming

Lauren Christine

This is the second in my fairy tale series, and it is a retelling of Snow White. This is another one that I had to delete, and I also lost all the comments on this, but they were none the less appreciated. ^_^ I hope you enjoy it!

*The Fairy Tales* Purple Cutians

Lauren Christine

This is the third, and most.. err... interesting (?) one of the fairy tales series. It is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty, and to help you understand it a bit better, Sleeping Beauty speaks first. ^_^

Tales of Altomia: The Box - Chapter One

Skyler Crouse

Lauren Wiseblade was just trying to make his way in the world; namely, kicking butt, and avoiding having his butt kicked. Yes, he knows it's a girl's name. And yes, he would NOT like you to point that out. Follow Lauren's hilarious adventures with the enchanter Jared Starfist and the Takma Hurdill Mimsy, and how a certain Box caused the creation of a mountain. This chapter shows Jared's unusual entrance into the bar of the Gambling Gnome, Lauren's decision to take up the job and the resulting humiliation of trying to look tough. Note: You might want to read A Brief History of Altomia first before you read any of the Tales of Altomia. You don't have to, and it's usually more fun to find out about this strange world I have devised through the actual stories that the history, but, well, MEH. Also, constructive criticism would be just smashing, guys. Once again, a cookie for Shanra for her very helpful advice.

Into the Sea Act 1

Amy Schley

This story began with a dream of being a mermaid swimming into the sea. I played around with making it the classic fairy tale of the orphan and the evil witch, but that just seems too cliche. I wanted characters who felt like people I knew. I wanted the Mermaids to actually be adapted to the ocean enviroment, instead of the creation of VERY lonely sailors. I also love the idea of what happens next in fairy tales (Into the Woods, anyone?), and I honestly hate the message of Disney's 'The Little Mermaid.' A sixteen year old girl who abandons her family for a man she has seen once (once!) gets daddy's blessing and eternal happiness? Not in any world I know. So I emphasized the mermaid's self-centeredness, made the witch someone who just does what she has to do to get by, made daddy mermaid bitter, introduced a granddaughter, and let the whole thing run.

Papa's Story

H. Rummel

This is a little something that came into my head. It's a cute beginning, although I'm not sure my Papa would tell me this story even now. It needs a better title, I know.... To be continued...

The Ersatz Fairy

Danielle Agar

This is another from the For Gettington project. (See Briar Ruotze.) I know this one was based on a particular fairy tale, but I can't remember which and I can't even remember the story. Magic enters a realistic modern setting and wreaks havoc as per usual.

Fireplace Songs & Tales

William Clayton

I've been wanting to place some of my songs and stories, but there's only so much available room, so, I came up with this idea. I'll be adding updates to this section, once a month or so, so, if you like the basic idea, check back again in a bit. Anyways, its twilight in a very special tavern, which stands on the border between reality and dream...

Tales of Altomia: The Box - Chapter Two

Skyler Crouse

Lauren Wiseblade was just trying to make his way in the world; namely, kicking butt, and avoiding having his butt kicked. Yes, he knows it's a girl's name. And yes, he would NOT like you to point that out. Follow Lauren's hilarious adventures with the enchanter Jared Starfist and the Takma Hurdill Mimsy, and how a certain Box caused the creation of a mountain. This chapter introduces the character of the rather obnoxious Hurdill Mimsy and some more humiliation for Lauren, because I'm that nasty. Note: You might want to read A Brief History of Altomia first before you read any of the Tales of Altomia. You don't have to, and it's usually more fun to find out about this strange world I have devised through the actual stories that the history, but, well, MEH. Also, constructive criticism would be just smashing, guys.
