Is it alright if I "re-tell" a fairy tale? Not literally, but I started something quite spontaneously. However, the changes in the basic plot are small, so anyone can easily identify it by its original fairy tale. Though I have been giving it some twists, things I had always wanted to watch in a fairy tale. Actually, I don't know if I shall send anything, but I got something started and that usually does not happen, at least not now with perplexing troubles in my life. Interesting challenge!  :D :D

petals, that sounds fine. Go ahead and finish and PM it to me.  :D ;)
