Fairytale Retellings & Prompts: X-Crossovers

This month we’re doing a series called the A-Z blogging challenge where we dive into Fairytale Retellings and provide prompts for writers. Writers are the people making the books, television shows, and movies of tomorrow. For more information on the challenge check out my earlier post here.

We’ve reached the dreaded X. I hope you’re not too surprised that I couldn’t find a fairytale that fit neatly into this day. However, I’ve been visiting other blogs who are participating in the A-Z blogging challenge (I hope you have too) and I was inspired to do something a little different today.

We’ve covered a ton of popular fairytales and fairytale adjacent stories, I hope we’ve included some of your favorites. Now let’s have some fun!

Here’s your writing prompt for the day: (That’s right we’re going straight to the prompt).

Create a brand new fairytale retelling crossover with two steps:

  1. First, choose your favorite fairytale or character.
  2. Then choose a movie or television series.
  3. Lastly, Mash them together and you’ve got something new.

i.e. Belle & The Beast meets CSI = The Beauty & the Beast CW

You’ve got the idea now go forth and create more mashups and feel free to get creative. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with. Be sure to tag us if you post outside of this page so we can find yours with #DandSFairytaleMashup

Here’s one more of my own to help you out: The Little Mermaid meets The Three Musketeers = The Guardian’s Code

  1. Okay, not a movie or TV, but how about “Snow White and the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.” I think it would be a sitcom set in the office of a mineral distribution company. (I’m not sure I’d like it, though!)
    Black and White (Words and Pictures)

    1. LOL! I love that idea.

  2. Ooh… hmm. My favorite fairy tale is Twelve Dancing Princesses. As for movie or TV show… Rise of the Guardians? It would be a fun animated movie 😀

    The Multicolored Diary

  3. I love these prompts! My current WiP could actually be described as “Alice in Wonderland meets Star Wars”, so I think it fits the brief!

    1. Awesome! Be sure to come back and share your WIP when you’re ready. I’d love to read it.
