“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten”

C H A L L E N G E
Forests and fairies, princes and prancing ponies, dragons and dwarves, apples and antics...Fairy tales always have certain elements that succeed in transporting us in a wholesome world, where someone gets saved in the nick of time and at the end of the adventure all ends well. But what if a known fairy tale took on a rather grim twist. What if Disney had it all wrong and fairy tales receive a goth make-over?

Well that is what this month's challenge is all about! Choose a fairytale from the list below and gothify it for a Goth audience! Remember that Goth means more than just black and brooding - Goth is seeing beauty in the darkness and in things that would usually appear strange or scary.

The Little Mermaid
Alice in Wonderland
Little Red Riding Hood
Rapunzel
The Lion King
Aladdin


If you want to learn more about Goth before starting to write, here are some interesting sources of information and inspiration for you:


R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ This is a prose prompt.
+ Your entry should be between 500 and 1000 words long.
+ Re-write a fairytale in Goth style.
+ Please include the name of the original fairytale you have used for your entry.

would not giving permission for my work to be featured / eligible for fan favorite voting jeopardize the results at all?
