FIC CHALLENGE: The Veronica Mars Fairytale Challenge  
I've never done one of these, but the idea popped into my head and I just thought it might be a lot of fun. Logan as Prince Charming; Veronica as Rapunzel; Keith as the Woodcutter ...

Banner by Shannon

Length: Minimum of 1,000 words (but longer is definitely welcome!)
Deadline: December 1, 2006

The Veronica Mars Fairytale Challenge

Here we go: Writers take any characters from Veronica Mars and plop them into a fairytale (either Grimm or Hans Christian Andersen), being sure to try and keep the VM characters as in character as possible.

Here's a link to a list of tales by:

  • Hans Christian Andersen
  • The Brothers Grimm

    If anyone is interested just pick a story from the above list and sign up for it here. If I have enough participants, I'll set up a lj community for this challenge.


    - bookjamprincess - Cinderella
    - misa_05 - The Little Mermaid
    - starry_laa - Snow White
    - proteinscollide - The Snow Queen

    Sounds interesting. I'd like to give it a whirl. I need a good challenge. I'd like to do Cinderella. Its an old classic and my favorite fairytale, no matter how cliche it sounds. Plus Veronica and Logan's story reminds me alot about it.

    Wonderful!! I'll edit the first post and put you down for Cinderella. I'll include length and the deadline as well. :)
    Melissa: V-Purplemisa_05 on August 27th, 2006 06:08 pm (UTC)
    Hmmmm, put me down for The Little Mermaid.

    Oh, and Jenn, are you going to make any banners or anything to help promote?
    Arabian: Hot!Hot!Hot!arabian on August 27th, 2006 06:57 pm (UTC)
    I can't make banners till I get back home (I'm on vacation now), but I've never done this before. Where would I put the banners?
    Melissa: VLillybestfriendsmisa_05 on August 27th, 2006 07:01 pm (UTC)
    For the banners I would just edit this entry with them. And then have all of the participants snag one. And maybe even put a banner over at Veronicamarsfic, lvfic, 09erdom, and other various VM communities that supply fic and just pimp the shit out of it.

    It would be just like promoting a new community.

    Or to make it all simpler, make a community.

    Its up to you.

    Would you give me the addresses of the other sites that I can post this at? I don't travel much outside of a few places in the VM fandom.
    Melissa: RyanandJasonmisa_05 on August 28th, 2006 12:59 pm (UTC)
    No problem.

    09erdom , veronicalogan , veronicaduncan , vm_boardwalk . vm_flexdx , vm_topbunk , and especially post it here at vmshipchallenge follow the directions because only sarah_p is allowed to post but its the best place for everyone to keep track of the dates for the challenge.

    I hope this helps.

    Should I do it now, or wait until I get home this weekend and do a banner?
    Melissa: madison-bitchplzmisa_05 on August 28th, 2006 01:32 pm (UTC)
    You can wait until you get home. The deadline isn't for a while so you should have some time.
    Melissa: JFD's Assmisa_05 on August 29th, 2006 03:38 am (UTC)
    Quick question though.... do we modernize our story or is it like... Since I have The Little Mermaid, Veronica is a mermaid or can we take the trials and the story line and we modernize it?
    Arabianarabian on August 29th, 2006 01:26 pm (UTC)
    You can do whatever you want with it. Modernize it, put it in the story, whatever. The only challenge is that you put VM characters IN the roles, but keep them as in character as possible.

    Can you put me down for Snow White? I think that'll be really fun.
    Arabian: Kermitarabian on August 27th, 2006 06:57 pm (UTC)
    Done and I love your icon!!!
    SQ: distanceproteinscollide on August 28th, 2006 09:19 am (UTC)
    Here via friendsfriends.

    I'd like to try at adapting The Snow Queen.
