|Name:||A Fucked Up Fairy Tale|
|Theme:||this is a collaborative comic|
|About:||In 2004, I (princess cupcake) got an idea for a story. I drew out some character sketches and started an opening page. I also wrote out a few paragraphs and some random information. I called it "Fairy Tales".|
"Fairy Tales" started out as a story. I wanted to turn it into a book. I still have some of this stuff written out as vignettes and paragraphs of something larger. But it evolved into something more. Several anatomy classes and one train ride later, I wanted it to be a comic.
So I drew out some pages and colored a few of the panels. It looked far better as a visual piece than a written one, so I kept going. I drew out the snippets I had written.
Somewhere along the line, my story changed. The characters became more jaded. The story turned less happy and more dark, with a not-so cute ending. "Fairy Tales" didn't cut it anymore. I needed something darker. Someone commented that it turned into a "fucked-up fairytale". That's what I've called the project ever since.
Eventually I reached a standstill. I had characters, a series of events that I wanted to happen, and a clear ending for the story. What I didn't have was a plot to tie it all together. So I showed it to my sister.
Turns out this was a good idea. Apparently she had been having some ideas that would mesh perfectly with what I had. So we started working together. She came up with the plot and a lot of the actual storyline, and I would flesh it all out and make it real.
So here we are.
