June Writing Comp: Obernewtynisation

Imagine that you're one of the Misfits living at Obernewtyn, and you've just come across a story, one which in the Beforetime was known as a "fairytale".
Not all of it makes sense to you, but you like the ideas and themes behind the story, and so you decide to adapt it, like Angina and Miky did with Sleeping Beauty.

Your challenge is to retell the story, interpreting it using elements and understanding of the Misfits' present time (you can use some elements of the Beforetime that they know of, as well, if you wish).

It can be written as a story, song or poem.

Entries open from now until [strike]30th June 2009[/strike] extended to 31st July 2009.

Submission Suggestions
Don't use the Sleeping Beauty :) it was already done, beautifully, by Miky and Angina in The Keeping Place. You can use any other fairy tale, and any version of it, that you wish.

Your entry should be no longer than 1000 words. You can only enter once, so make sure you're happy with the entry before you submit it!

1st: 40
2nd: 30
3rd: 20
Entry: 5

Judges: Meriymun, Ness, and Bambi

    Sian - I'm sure that will be perfectly okay. It could just as easily have been written as 'one of the Obernewtyn Misfits'. ;)
