This one is so confusing. :weary:
So by fairytale… you mean a plot that’s pretty much already taken place in animated movies before, but we can adapt it?!

So basically our entries can’t be a “fairytale romance” but has to be like some sort of actual book kind of fairytale?
#StillVeryConfused
I’d be down for writing a fairytale type romance (between normal people, not princes and princesses and all that…) but if it has to be something strange with like talking inanimate objects, then I have no idea because it’s not for me. :joy::rofl:

Sleeping Beauty was in a deep sleep by something else other than a spinning wheel, and she was awaken by not a kiss but something else? So its like, making it a bit different? Im still confused.

To clarify: Your stories must take elements from existing Fairy Tale stories, whether that is characters or the plot.

Ideas and tropes, such as vampires or mermaids or a “fairytale romance” are not an adaption of a story, but finding a folk tale about a mermaid and writing your own version of it would qualify for this contest.

So I’m thinking of doing one of these 5 stories, which do you think would be best to adapt?

  1. The Twelve Dancing Princesses
  2. Robin Hood
  3. Beauty and the Beast
  4. Peter Pan
  5. Cinderella

So basically, create an adaptation off an existing fairytale/folktale but making sure it is of public domain

interesting
