So I had this idea for an SB, but I've never made one on here so I need an opinion.

We're all familiar with the fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel and all of those others things. Everything that ends in Happily Ever After. But what happens after that? And what happens when two stories collide? My part in this SB would be the character Kato, the son of the Big Bad Wolf who was killed in Little Red Riding Hood. How many people knew he had a family? How many people cared? None. No one. Kato, now an almost fully grown Wolf, struggles to live in a world where he is despised and isolated from everyone around him except a small Rat named Apollo.

I had an idea for another character but I'd prefer it to be played by another person. Basically this story will consist of either what happens after the words 'Happily Ever After' and what the true story may be behind those words. It can revolve around the main character or around a character that is not fully understood. I also had the concept that it could be taking place during someone's own idea of a fairy tale- of course that'd need to be addressed to me beforehand. The characters in the stories would cross-pollinate and live in the same world, the same kingdom; just taking place at different parts of it.

So what do you guys think, huh?

There was one like this before Christmas that I was part of. It didn't really get anywhere, but I still love the whole concept. I would definitely be in.

That sounds like it would be a really good story if enough work was put into it. :D

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

Pffffft, yeah right...fat lot of help sour lemon juice would do. When life also throws me a bag of sugar, then we'll start talking.

So you're the player?

Nice to meet you, I'm the coach.

The simple truth is that authors like making people squirm. If this weren't the case, all novels would be filled completely with cute bunnies having birthday parties.
