'Fairy Tale' Contest

Fairy Tale


BestestFriendContest Group ENTRIES

Bestest Friend (DreamingAutumn) and I are back with another contest! :eager:



:bulletred: This contest's theme is 'Fairy Tale'! What does that mean? Well,  why don't you just ruminate, whilst I illuminate the possibilities...

:bulletyellow: Simply put, you write something related to "fairy tale", that could be ANYTHING. Want to write your own fairy tale? Go for it! Want to modernize or rewrite the ending for an existing tale, do it! You can even incorporate another element into it. Maybe it's a cross between Sci-Fi and Fantasy or a Mystery and Fantasy tale! Or do some combination, how about a Snow White Sci-Fi where she is the one kissing the prince awake? ;P The possibilities are endless.

:bulletgreen: Want to donate something? Feature, points, pm, a print, something you made? Note either HugQueen or DreamingAutumn. Or donate straight to DreamingAutumn! If you donate a prize you're still eligible to enter and win!

We are aware that it's been three weeks, there were over 30 entries, we are all in different time zones, and there was no clear cut winner, they were all very good entries. We are working on getting together to decide who the winners are, but because of the time zones it is difficult. The winner will be announced soon, please be patient.

Thanks, but don't congratulate me on a job well done until you've actually read it (which I'm sure you will as part of the judging process). On a side note, it is correct that I only need to submit it to that 'entry folder' to participate, correct?
I would hate to have missed the deadline because I didn't know how to enter properly. :D

Also, I'd like to thank you personally for organizing these. Not because of the prizes, but a contest is always a great way to challenge yourself and learn something new from the contestants. :)
It's my first time entering, so I hope I'm not straining you too much with my noobness :D

Right, tell me about the contest one day before the deadline! Just for the fun of it, I'll try entering. :)
Not like I actually expect to win, but hey, the friendly competition itself is prize enough. ;)

I know that the original fairy tales aren't upbeat and happy as we imagine them to be today, they were quite a bit darker, so I'm going to say yes, so long as it's not too graphic and/or scary. We don't have anyone having nightmares after all.

Hmm, I'm just thinking of a sort of literary question right now - what distinguishes a 'fairy tale' from other types of 'fantasy' that could be applied to this contest?
Reply
:iconhugqueen:
HugQueen Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2015   Writer
:confused:  That is a very good question, but we're just looking for you to use your best judgement on determining what really "qualifies" as a Fairy Tale. We've decided to be very lenient though so if you are thinking of something, just let either myself or DreamingAutumn know!

So clarifying becuase I haven't slept in 36 hours, does one have to be a member of the group, or just submit their entry to it?
If I'm going to be an insomniac, I'm going to get stuff done.
