Description: You know what’s really popular right now? Retelling fairytales. Movies do it; books do it; I’m sure other forms of media do as well. So why not get some fan fiction in on the proceedings?

Here’s the deal: Take a fairytale, preferably one that’s well known, though it doesn’t have to be. Then, rewrite it in the context of your chosen fandom!

Here’s the twist: No AUs. I want you to completely and utterly fit your rewritten tale into the timeline and structure that already exists in the anime or manga or movie or whatever that you picked. That means no making the reader a princess and setting it in the middle ages. It also means you can’t just slap “Dark!Tsuna” on as the Beast character in a Beauty and the Beast retelling. If you want to use Tsuna in that role, figure out how to make it make sense with his actual characterization. Retell Cinderella with the whole of The Mortal Instruments and not just the characters. Work Sleeping Beauty into Free! without scrapping the high school swim team element. Get my drift?

A few extra details:

1. I use “reader character” when speaking of the female love interest, but feel free to use only canon characters, or even your fandom character if you prefer.

2. Gender swapping the roles is fine. Want to rewrite Rapunzel with Twilight characters and make Edward Rapunzel and the reader character the prince? That’s perfectly fine.

3. Related to the above, do whatever you like with the sexuality of your characters. If you want to rewrite the Little Mermaid with the reader character as the mermaid and Natasha Romanoff as the prince, you go for it. I think asexuality would be difficult in a fairytale, but if you can manage it (or find a good fairytale for that idea), then feel free to do that as well. Seriously, anything goes.

4. The point is to retell a fairytale story while making it believable in the context of your chosen fandom’s canon. That means no making canon characters out of character to suit your purposes, or just lifting plot details and items straight from your fairytale. A ball to choose a wife at isn’t going to make sense in most fandoms, and you’d get more creativity “points” if you used something other than a glass slipper retelling Cinderella.

5. Your fairytale is going to look different than the original. That’s the point. Plan things out. Think outside the box.

6. This challenge is not for drabble or ficlet collections. You must write enough to encompass the fairytale you're retelling. One shots, therefore, are fine, as is writing a novel-length story.

7. Use whatever fandom in whatever media you would like for this.

8. The only limitation is that this challenge is not for original fiction. In that case, you don’t have a fandom to fit the story in and the rest of the rules are moot!

9. You may adapt fairytales in their generally more violent or sad incarnations, or those that have been through "Disneyfication."

Hopefully I gave enough examples that the idea I'm going for here is clear. As always, if you’re interested but don’t quite understand, please feel free to contact me. My contact information can be found on my profile.

Description: So something on my Tumblr dash piqued my interest!
Click click! ⇨ Periodic Table of Storytelling

Rules!
1. A collection of one-shots.
2. For one story, choose one 'element' that you'll write about. Your story could be a combination of other elements, but the element you chose must be the main highlight of the story.
3. Any order. Your first story doesn't have to be the element that's in the spot of Hydrogen in the periodic table of elements.
4. Any fandom! Because I want to share this cute thing to everyone! Oh, you may write an original story too!
5. Any rating, any genre. As long as it can still highlight the element you chose.
6. For each chapter title, kindly add the symbol (the shorter name) of the element of the story. (E.g.: Mpb; School Prefect) ... Mpb is "Manipulative Bastard" in the periodic table and I thought of Hibari from Katekyo Hitman Reborn! first so that's the example.
7. Lastly, indicate on your summary that your story is a response to my challenge.

I'll do this one too, on summer. Enjoy~

Description: Suddenly becoming a father, a single one at that was the absolutely last thing on his 'to do list', but fate clearly had other ideas. He's about to find out if he is in fact 'man enough' to handle every crazy, frustrating and surprisingly scary thing that comes with raising a child to adulthood alone.

Rules:

Okay, so this challenge needs some explaining. Basically you just need to pick a guy from any anime, manga, book, TV Show, games ect. that probably would not make the best father and unexpectedly plop a child who's age can range anywhere from a newborn to a toddler, no older or younger though, into his custody one way or another. Also, the child must biologically be his.

[1] You must show in the summary that you have accepted my challenge, since I'd love to read what you've written.

[2] It can be any length, as long as it's over one hundred words.

[3] You can use any fandom you like or no fandom at all.

[4] The guy you pick must be a single father and the mother cannot be in the picture for whatever reason you'd like to come up with.

[5] You do not have to use the example guys as they are just there for reference as to what type of guy I want to see being used for this challenge.

Example Guys:

1. Xanxus (Katekyou Hitman Reborn!)

2. Levi (Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan)

3. Train Heartnet (Black Cat)

4. Dante (Devil May Cry)

Description:

I read a lot, but I always find that it's hard to find a good book/story.


This is your challenge:


To write a good story that I will enjoy reading. It can be any fandom of your choice, or it can be an original piece. Heck, it can even be nonfiction! (Fiction is still preferable, though.)


There is no deadline.


As long as it's good, post it here. I'll eat it up and be forever grateful. :)
