Fandom: 12 Dancing Princesses (Fairy Tale)


18 Feb 2016
Tags

Any Character

Summary

I would love something that shows the princesses having different personalities, acting as sisters, rather than a mass of women. And how did their dancing excursions start, anyway?

Fandom: Cendrillon ou La petite Pantoufle de Verre | Cinderella - Charles Perrault

18 Feb 2016
Tags

Any Character

Summary

For some reason, I really love retellings of Cinderella in different time periods. Anything that deals with any of the characters before, during, or after the traditional narrative, set in a distinct historical time and place, would be so cool. (The stepmother in her first marriage, during the English Regency! The balls as 1920s nightclubs!)

Fandom: Robin Hood (Traditional)

18 Feb 2016
Tags

Any Character

Summary

The idea of a setting swap is of interest ... but the original setting is very good as it is, too. I would be genuinely happy with fic about any of the characters, but have to admit to having a soft spot for the Robin/Marian romance, and for the often-flamboyant and witty Will Scarlet. However, I'd love to read about Marian interacting with Little John and Will or any of the other Merry Men, and how can you write a properly tragic story without the Prioiress?

Fandom: Les Fées | Diamonds and Toads - Charles Perrault


18 Feb 2016
Tags

Any Character

Summary

A fairly short and less well-known canon. I've always been fascinated by where in the mouth the things come from - do they pop out of the throat? Appear between the lips so you don't accidentally swallow them? Definitely a source for intriguing post-canon fic. Eg, what does the bad sister do to try to stop this? Maybe try to learn magic?

The White Bear (East of the Sun and West of the Moon) The Girl (East of the Sun and West of the Moon)

Summary

I love this story, and all versions of Psyche/Cupid, really. I'd love an exploration of how the Bear finds the girl, or his thoughts during their time apart when she's searching for him. Or an AU retelling, the story in space, steampunk, western, what have you.

Good Sister (Toads and Diamonds)

Summary

So what happened after she got married? Or how did the Prince win her heart? I would prefer it if she wanted to marry him, and it wasn't unhappy. What if she wasn't found by the prince? What would have happened then? AU retellings also welcome for this.

Sleeping Beauty (Fairy Tales)

Summary

AU retellings are perfectly welcome, but I'd also like to learn more about Sleeping Beauty. What did she dream about while she waited to be rescued? Did she learn to spin after she woke up? Were she and the Prince happy?

le Chat botté | Puss in Boots Marquis de Carabas (Le Chat Botté)

Summary

So after Puss got the Marquis married, then what? Did he go out on further adventures and get more poor young men married to lovely ladies (or gentlemen. I like both. He can marry young ladies to other young ladies, too)? Did he find his own perfect mate? Was he really a fairy or something? I'd love to know more. If you want to go the AU retelling route, that would be fine, but I would rather no noir or steampunk, as I have written Puss as both of those myself.

Fandom: Historia Regnum Britanniae - Geoffrey of Monmouth


21 Feb 2016
Tags

Any Character

Summary

Tell me a tale of the founding of Britain, a la Geoffrey of Monmouth. Maybe tell me of the women that were there as well, or anthropomorphise the nations; what were the smaller battles that were fought, and who fought them? What scars did Troy lay upon people and what might Britain have looked like if this origin was more truth than myth?

Any Character

Summary

I love the Nights, though I prefer some of the latter translations such as Mahdi's.

I'd love to see whatever you can create for the Nights - is there a layer to peel back that would allow for a taste of the collection that pre-existed the collection as we currently know it?

What happened to Shahrzad? Did she bear Shahryar a son? Daughters? Did she believe in the Djinn that she told tales of? Did she practise magic, worship other gods? What did her world look like, and how did it feel to walk to her doom?

(I have dabbled in the Nights; if you want to borrow, remix or reference said fics, please do!)

I'd be absolutely delighted to see what you could do with this poem. I've been working through reading a bilingual text of this, and it's a beautiful poem.



Request 4 by Night-Mare (Aoife)
Fandom: Legends of the Wild Hunt



21 Feb 2016
Tags

Any Character

Summary

I love how this myth varies whilst remaining essentially the same across much of northern Europe, and how individual versions soborn local heroes and deities. I've written of one featuring Sir Francis Drake for example!

I nominated Gwynn ap Nudd this time, one of the versions of the myth that features the Fae. Other local myths that go with Gwynn so Nude include that the gateway to his underworld is in the Tor at Glastonbury - which is also one of the proposed locations of Avalon.

Tell me of a hunt and who they hunted; of what it feels like when you ride with the hunt. Of a feast at the court of Gwynn ap Nudd; does Arthur wait with him?
