Fourth Challenge Announcement

Hijacking again!

New challenge for June.

Thumbelina, because what fandom obvioulsy needs are tales of tiny people.

Remember the time that the Ancient technology shrunk John to 3 inches tall and he had to live in an Athosian dolls house for a month?

Or what about that Supernatural/Honey, I Shrunk the Kids crossover?

And who could ever forget the time the Tardis landed on the Planet of the Giants. What wacky fun that was.

What? You mean no one's written these stories? Well, they should!

So go forth and write your little hearts out.

Challenge will stay open until the end of June.

Please do not post anywhere outside this journal before this challenge runs out. Thank you.

And of course, you can always post any other fairy tale outside of the challenge. This is a prompt, not a restriction.

Just a Story, Zabbers, PG

Hello hello! It's been ages, but the fairy tale style called to me, and produced this. No little match girls (which I have totally done a little joking thing about Sheppard all lost in the snow because of his terrible sense of direction and deciding it was just too hard to find his bearings and sitting down and being all woobie, and then someone comes along to lead him to the nice warm pub that's only like two feet away, observing that he looks like the little match girl--before I saw this challenge), just a sad little boy.

Title: Just a Story
Author: Zabbers
Rating: PG or so
Fandom: Torchwood
Main Characters/Pairing: Ianto (Ianto/Lisa, teeny tiny bit of Ianto/Jack)
Summary: You could call it a fairy tale, but as you know, it doesn't have a happy ending. Still, it starts with 'once upon a time'. It's just a story. Ianto's story. I imagine Ianto telling this story to some people who don't really know what he's talking about, perhaps around the fire, it's raining outside, and he's got a nice hot cup of coffee in his hands. Which is basically how I wrote this tale, around the proverbial fire of the instant messenger chat.
Warnings: Spoilers for 1x04 "Cyberwoman", Doctor Who 2x12-13 (and the whole history leading to that, but just barely, just from Ianto's perspective). Just the deaths that happen in canon.

Once upon a time there was a boy.Collapse )

Third Challenge Annoucement

I'm hijacking the comm to post a new challenge for y'all!

The prompt this time around is...

The Little Match Girl

Cause it's kinda a Christmassy / New Years story, and one of my favourites, and yeah, kinda depressing, but I'm sure all you wonderfully talented people can give it a happy ending if you so choose, right?

So, will Rodney be sent to the snow planet to sell his basket of nuclear devices? *insert witty fandom ideas that I'm too sick (cough) to think of right now here*

Write, manip, icon or vid your little hearts away! This challenge will run until 1st January 2007. Look at that, you've got the whole rest of the year people!

Please do not post anywhere outside this journal before this challenge runs out. Thank you.

And of course, you can always post any other fairy tale outside of the challenge. This is a prompt, not a restriction.

Go forth and create...

This is completely and utterly mad.    This comes from my comment to  mangst the other day that I seemed to have lost the ability to write fluff.  I think this classes as a fairytale.

The Seventh Swan

Author: Bitterfig

Title: The Seventh Swan

Source: The Seven Swans from Grimm’s Fairy Tales

Genre: Original Dark Fairy Tale

Rating: R

Word Count: 3490

Summary: A post-modern, contemporary retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale The Seven Swans. 

 

Witches always have their wars.  Mona is placed under a curse by a rival witch, her seven brothers turned to swans.  For the next seven years, Mona works in silence, weaving the magic shirts that will restore her brothers to human form. 

 

When the seven years end, the final shirt is unfinished.  Mona’s youngest brother Isaiah--who has spent half his life human, half enchanted--is left behind, alone in the bleak world of reality, one arm the wing of a swan.  

 


Author’s Note: This is going to be my entry in the_bwg dark fairy tale contest.

I know I muttered about this a while back, about ancient versions of the cinderella story. Well I found my sheet, and have managed to get it into pdf files, so if anyone would like to use them for inspiration you're all welcome. I could not for love or money convert the blasted thing into 1, 6 page pdf, so you have 6, 1 page pdfs
