Derby #209: Fairy Tales
Who says a life of wonder, magic, and happy endings has to end with childhood? We want to stay in a realm of witches, dwarves, fairies, and wolves dressed up like our grandmother. Wait. Maybe not that last one. This week we want to see your version of the classic enchanted tales of your youth. We're looking for classic characters, morality plays, and maybe even some weird gruesome endings you never seem to remember because why on earth would they put that in a story for kids? Now, you just need to know the rules:
- Watch your copyrights. Yeah, the fairytale versions of Snow White & the Seven Dwarves, The Little Mermaid, or the Three Little Pigs might be fair use, but the Disney versions are not. Get creative!
- Incidental text only. We're sure you can write a great fairy tale, but we're more interested in your artistic depiction of one.
- No Star Wars.
And of course, be sure to try and guess our MYSTERY ICON! We're thinking of a specific design element - a person, a place, a thing, an idea. The first contestant to use this Mystery Icon in an entry for this Derby will receive a Woot! screaming monkey, whether they like it or not.
