    Summary

    A rewrite of several fairy tales by Perrault, 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.).

    Inspired by AMarguerite's wonderful soulmark AU for Austen's Pride & Prejudice: An Ever Fixed Mark. It planted the image of Col. Fitzwilliam reading Perrault's fairy tales to Elizabeth Bennet in my mind and has forced me to write this.

    Summary

    I need to say some things about this. It was for a class at uni: Textual Intervention (basically fanfiction the class) I had to do something with the fairy-tale, Bluebeard. I decided to modernize it.

    This is proof I can’t write heterosexuals. It reads like bad 50 Shades of Gray fanfiction. Which in itself is technically bad Twilight fanfiction. So it reads like bad fanfiction of bad fanfiction. Twice recycled shit. Because of this, as a joke I handed it in called 50 Shades of Toxic. The man in this is named Toxic because I used a humanization of a Transformers character of mine. The main female in this, I used Madison as a stand-in name, but liked it, so after I handed this in I changed a few things around to make it my JeanMarco baby. Armin is in here as her uncle, though not related by blood.

    Summary

    In Irene’s house people walk flinchingly past restraints hanging from walls and artfully placed toyboxes to find the one locked door in the building. They shiver slightly at it, wondering what bloody kink-spattered revelation might lie behind it, what could possibly be worse than all of this.

    A (very loose) retelling of Bluebeard for Let's Write Sherlock challenge 2.
