I'm posting this a little early, but you still have plenty of time to post for prompt #1.
We're all rewriting a fairy tale that has already been done only using different characters, making them our own, but for prompt #2 I'd like to see original fairy tales.
Prompt #2: Original tale
This can be a scene or a description or even just a list of characters. Think about the fairy tales that have been written - the witches and the fairies, the little men who want you to guess their name - and come up with your own.
By definition (from Wikipedia) a fairy tale is: A fairy tale or fairy story is a fictional story that may feature folkloric characters (such as fairies, goblins, elves, trolls, witches, giants, and talking animals) and enchantments, often involving a far-fetched sequence of events.
It can also mean any far-fetched story. Think about that, try to come up with your own interpretation of a fairy tale, whether it's set in modern times or the past.
You do not need to have a claim here in order to participate, anyone can submit a fic/piece of art. If you do have a claim it isn't required that you participate in the challenges. They're here simply to offer inspiration.
