    Summary

    A rewrite of several fairy tales by the brothers Grimm, to make them fit into a universe/society where everyone has the name of their soulmate appear on their left wrist when they are sixteen.

    The fairy tales will only be slightly rewritten, I want to keep them as close to the original as possible and will only change those parts of the plot that I feel would have developed differently in a society that has to deal with soulmarks being a thing. I'll try to reflect the different interpretations society might have for what the soulmarks mean (it could be the person you are to marry, someone that changes your life or your true love etc.).

    Part Two in my Soulmark Fairy Tales series (the Perrault installment was inspired by AMarguerite's An Ever Fixed Mark/That Looks On Tempests) and gifted to DeerShifter for her encouragement and suggestions.

    Summary

    They say “seven brothers,” which is a lie; and they say their sister saved them at the cost of only three children, two mothers, and one voice; and it is lies, lies, lies.

    Summary

    She is an orphan, a girl child alone in the world, a monster, a bitch, a shadow in the trees, a rumour for parents to whisper to their children, a nightmare in a red hood, an inevitability hurtling towards her destiny.

    This is Lisette, and she is not afraid of wolves.

    (Underage warning for ambiguous age - the passage of time is unclear, but she's meant to be about 15 - and ambiguous sex.)
