Modern Day Fairy Tale Chain

I know Red started a chain about a specific fairy tale...

But I'd like to start a "Fairy Tale" chain... the twist is, you have to MODERNIZE the fairy tale. It has to be set in today's time.

So Red Riding Hood lives in the da hood, and runs into a big bad "wolf"....

or Snow White runs away from home to get away from her evil stepmother and shacks up with seven strange guys...

I'm sure you can come up with something much more creative! The possibilities are endless. Anyone wanna?

Time wise it doesn't have to start now... we can wait a while to start if people have current projects to work on. I'm fine with putting the starting date off a month or two or three.

I just want to hear if there's an interest...

ETA:

Here are some ideas...

List of fairy tales.

List of fairy tale fantasies (for modern retellings.)

Here's just a common list... there are LOTS more...

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
Beauty and the Beast
Cinderella
The Elves and the Shoemaker
The Emperor's New Clothes
The Frog Prince
The Gingerbread Man
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
Hansel and Gretel
Jack and the Beanstalk
The Little Mermaid
Little Red Riding Hood
Peter and the Wolf
Peter Pan
The Pied Piper of Hamelin
The Adventures of Pinocchio
The Princess and the Pea
Puss in Boots
Rapunzel
The Red Shoes
Rumpelstiltskin
Sleeping Beauty
The Snow Maiden
The Snow Queen
Snow White
Snow-White and Rose-Red
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
The Steadfast Tin Soldier
Three Billy Goats Gruff
Three Little Pigs
Thumbelina
Tom Thumb
The Ugly Duckling
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

I have some interest, but I'm not sure if it's the "I'd write one of these" or "I'd read one of these" kind.

Sounds interesting Selena.

Count me in.

It sounds quirky enough to be quite a bit of fun.

I'd love to do it. I immediately got the most delicious debauched, perverted version of Hansel and Gretel in my head. I've been shy to do another Incest story, but hey . . . this one might be worth it.

Still not trusting my muse enough to commit to a schedule, but I like the idea. If I have something congeal enough to feel comfortable locking in a timeframe and a tale, I'll come back and yell

I need a chain story for survivor and your idea is appealing, so count me in. I'm sure I can find something perverted to write about.

Timewise, I don't mind all that much. I m currently trying to finish a couple of long ones, but that shouldn't take forever... i hope!

I wanna! How does the chain thingy work?

The Death of Koschei the Deathless, I suspect, is ripe for modernizing and erotic-izing. The middle act of the tale is a reversal of the usual--the princess brings the prince back to her castle and tells him not to open the Locked Door while she's out killing the bad guys--and it's the prince's actions that result in the princess becoming a damsel in distress.

Interest is still there. Not one hundred percent sure if I still want to do Hansel & Gretel, though. Maybe we should make a list of fairy tales to chose from?

I'm having the urge to rewrite Rapunzel for some weird reason. Maybe i'm developing a hair fetish?

I found a huge list of obscure fairy tales on Wiki - many of which I had never heard of - if you're stuck for inspiration, check it out.

I *might* be interested... if I can be put at the very end of the schedule. Working full time and having a passel of kids does not lend itself to much free time for writing.

That sounds like a lot of fun. I enjoy contemporary retellings... Will each of us be selecting a different story?

I'm in if you'll have me.

I'll take Snow White, though I'm not sure if I want to take your idea and run with it or do the one I thought of... or try to combine them both.

Rapunzel intrigues me. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with her yet, but I'd like to play with her.

I think I'd like Alice in Wonderland if no one has claimed her yet.

I"d like to take Bluebeard, but I won't be writing for a bit - too much else to catch up on.
