    Alexis_Wingstar here, starting up another insane yet hopefully fun thread. I've been kicking around the idea of starting a thread in one of the boards where I would post different fairy tales from around the Star Wars universe. However, I have so many stories in my brain I can't do it justice. So, I figured I can get everyone involved who wishes to participate.

    The idea is this: Make up a fairy tale that would fit in the SW universe. You know, those fables and stories younglings would grow up hearing. You can have it as someone reading their child a bedtime story, and in that case it would go in the forum era of the character reading. I.e., If Leia is reading a bedtime story to Jacen, Jaina and Anakin when they are small, it would go in "Beyond" if it is Jocasta Nu reading to a group of younglings in the temple, it would either be in "Before" or "Saga". On the other hand, you can just write the fable/fairy tale as is... that would probably go into "Before".

    Post a link to the stories here, and I will index them.

    Challenge 1 (deadline February 23): Write a story in the GFFA's future... say at least 500 ABY... in which someone tells a story to either their child as a bedtime story, or someone telling a story to a group of younglings. Post it in the "Beyond the Saga" board, and give a link here.

    Hmm...

    I'm interested. What do you mean by planning. Does that mean I can post my idea here and ask for comments on it?

    Perhaps "Planning" was the wrong word... discussion may have been the wiser choice. Granny's senile. [face_mischief]

    We could discuss various topics about fairy tales in the SW universe.

    Here's an idea for discussion: Do you think different races would infuse other race's fairy tales into their culture? I mean, the GFFA has so many cultures. Do you think humans and non-humans could have some fairy tales common to each other?

    Would indexing my GFFA Bedtime Stories that I've had for a while count?

    I think there would definately be some mixing, but the amount would depend on the mode of interation.

    Interesting. I actually made a story and it's sequel into my own brand of a fairy tale. :)

    You know who would have an interesting opinion on this? My mom. No, seriously. She's got a bachelors in anthropology. Her user name is Anika. She's out of town at the moment, but I'm going to email her.

    I wasn't planning on doing any challenges, but sure, go ahead. :)

    I'm not quite sure... are they fairy taleish? Post a link to it here, if you like.

    Though I doubt Bothans would refer to any Human fairtales. :p

    Cool :D

    The more opinions the better for discussion.

    They're all Star Wars adaptations of classic bedtime stories:

    I have some fairy tales woven into my stories. Tales told by the Owl and they are adaptations from fables by La Fontaine

    Okay, totally unofficial challenge:

    In the far, far distant future, when the events of the Star Wars cannon are litlle more than myth, what stories will people tell about them?

    That's a good challenge. Let's make it official! ;)

    Write a story in the GFFA's future... say at least 500 ABY... in which someone tells a story to either their child as a bedtime story, or someone telling a story to a group of younglings. Post it in the "Beyond the Saga" board, and give a link here.

    Let's give this a six week deadline, February 23. Then, the participants can vote via PM to me. The winner gets to come up with the next challenge.

    I got this Challenge done years ago! :D Seriously, one of my very first fanfic projects had been along these same lines.

    If I find the time, I'd love to write it all over again. With better grammar and spelling, of course. :p
