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...
Here are some ideas...
