I was about to say ‘hey tumblr remind me to type some stories up for folkloristik (poor neglected blog) later’ but I’m not doing anything rn what am...
why do so many fantasies starring ladies start with the lady being engaged/married to a stranger tho
i don’t want fantasy stories about women that are defined by the love story
i want fantasy stories about women doing things
and being things
like a board game
based off of the original Grimms fairy tales
maybe some Russian tales too
I don’t think it’s been done yet?
There will be, like, dice and situation cards that say
“Your beloved desires lettuce from the witch’s garden. The witch has caught you stealing and demands your first born! Move back 5 spaces.”
“You must catch the legendary phoenix by the king’s decree. Your friend the Wolf decides to help you! Move forward 3 spaces.”
“You pricked your finger on a spinning wheel and are cursed to sleep! Lose a turn.”
The goal is the ‘Happily Ever After’ at the end of the game which one obtains with certain items/money/survival?
It would be really cool if I did this a someone would help me out…
