Series: Tangled Fables
Bunny: Take as many fairy tales as possible and make them related to each other as sensibly as possible. Using the *real* tales instead of Disneyfied versions.
Tales and hows so far:
Red Riding Hood marries the Huntsman and has Hansel and Gretel.
Hansel marries and has Cinderella while Gretel has a son who becomes a toy maker with a wooden son.
Cinderella marries her prince but dies delivering Snow White and Rose Red who finds and marries the Frog Prince after being fostered out.
Snow White marries her Prince and asks the Dwarves to come live in the town where they meet a cobbler (shoe maker) who happens to have been Gretel’s second son.
Rose Red and Frog Prince have a Swan Princess and a Prince who happens to figure out where 12 Princesses where going every night to wear out their shoes.
And now my brain hurts. The truly scary part is, all that’s off the top of my head. It’s going to be terrifying after I do some research. But there you have it, the beginnings of Tangled Fables. Of course I still don’t know *why* we got curious and into the who beget who thing but I’m sure one of the voices in my head will tell me soon.
Okay for those who are retro enough to know who and what I’m talking about….. Airwolf crossed with Iron Man/Avengers. Michael’s Angels lurking around Stark Industries and Shield. Stan and Moffet in bed together (maybe literally) because we all know that SI was involved *somewhere* in the making of that helicopter. And all of us who are fans of Angel will swear on her rotors that she’s self-aware so……..
Anyway. One lonely bunny up for grabs. And you’ll be the first to write that cross if you take it up, just remember to post links pretty please. :-)
*waves* Hey all. So. As you know if you read my first post, I’m a bit of a writer and some of my authors just reminded me a couple of days ago that Nano (NAtional NOvel WRiting MOnth) www.nanowrimo.org is in two days. 50,000 words in 30 days. Yeeeeaaah buddy. Only made it to the half way point once and I’ve only missed one year since starting in 2006, you’d think I’d learn by now. :)
Anyway, this year I was pounced by a very annoying crossover Mary-Sueish bunny. The crossover is an old, short-lived TV series called WitchBlade that ran on TNT for about two seasons. It was a summer filler show that had some potential but as usual things went sideways. Anyway, crossing it into the Avengers movie was what I was originally shown. (I just write what the voices in my head tell me too. Any time I try to have an actual say they get huffy and flounce off to pout. *rolleyes*)
So get a few scenes running in my head, disjointed as usual, and I’m like, “Okay. That’s cool. And workable.” Then the evil little mental gremlins I have that run my massive archive of useless knowledge came running up to me going, “But… but…. but….. there’s this show and that fandom and OH! wouldn’t it be cool if we added this in…..!”
By the way, who’s freakin’ bright idea was it to based nearly *every* fandom known to mankind in flippin’ New York?! Do you *know* how many of my fandoms are there?! I counted 15 off the top of my head last night. Seriously. (Yeah. I know. I need a life. Hush.) Finally managed to cut it down to about 8 or 10, wrote them down and said to hell with it and rolled my All Knowing Dice (Dungeons and Dragons Dice 1d8) to help me decide how many and who was going into this monster besides the first two. Got lucky, it only rolled up one other. Of course the fact that it’s WB’s Tarzan the series which only lasted 8 episodes because people are stooopid doesn’t mean a thing. *insert massive eye roll here*
*waves hands* Back on actual topic. For the next month I’ll probably be tossing a lot of snippets and random bits of dialogue on here so it’s stored somewhere that can’t really get stolen. (pouts about the laptop that had 25000+ words of an original novel on it getting stolen once) So fair warning. *Loki Grin* Let the insanity begin, luvs.
