Updated: 06/08/2012 I like my fairytales twisted, not light and fluffy.
1) Cinderella: She's turned 18; the Prince needs to pick a bride, but will her Stepfather and Stepbrothers let her out of the house, much less out to a ball? And will the Prince be all he seems once they're wed?
Looking at possible incest with the Stepfamily, D/s themes, non-con, coercion, possible humiliations. There is also the opening for romance or just a dark twisted tale. The Stepfather could be in league with the Prince, selling off Cinderella to pay off debts, or the Prince could be the white knight saving her from the predations of her Stepfather and brothers.
2) Red Riding Hood: The Big Bad Wolf has plans other than making Red dinner.
Am thinking more a beast-man than an full wolf here though either would be acceptable. Possible bestiality, or he could be some sort of shapeshifter (perhaps cursed) and keep her hostage until he takes his human shape again. Kidnapping, non-con, BDSM, possible humiliation and terror.
3)Sleeping Beauty: How has the world changed since she fell asleep and just who is this Prince that managed to wake her up?
She's been asleep a long time. Long enough that she will be utterly naive of the world as it is now. She'll be moldable, shapeable and won't know any better than anything she is told. She'll come from a time when she would have been raised to be obedient to the will of her husband and will look on her Prince in such a capacity. Will he be kind, or cruel and is the witch that cursed her, or some descendant still around to seek further revenge? Or worse, might it be one of the Witch's own descendants that chose to wake her from her slumber?
4) Snow White: What would her life have been like if it had been Daddy who passed away and she had a wicked StepFather instead? Will those dwarves really leave her alone in exchange for just a bit of house cleaning?
Against Her Will
I have a craving for something darker too. I love corrupting fairytales by I like write things a bit more dark and intense as well. Perhaps a demon that comes up to the human realm every so often looking for a new slave to entertain him...not really caring that the girl has a life and desires of her own. There'd be definite non-con and BDSM themes involved and she'd be pretty darned stubborn before he was able to break her in...
Doesn't really need to be a demon necessarily, could just be a modern man with enough time and money, to break girls down and build them back into slaves for himself (or perhaps to sell).
Or something more futuristic a peaceful trading ship attacked by an alien destroyer and it's crew sold off in alien slave markets that specialize in species (in this crews case, humans) not often seen in this part of space.
His Ward: An idea I was working on some time ago on another site that fizzled due to rl complications. I'd love to try and resurrect it here if the right partner is interested.
Premise: Fifteen years ago a very wealthy businessman's best friend (and business partner) and wife died in a car wreck leaving him their 3 year old daughter to raise and her inheritance to manage as well. He gives her the best of everything but also keeps her rather sheltered with tutors, trusted staff to play with, and only allowing her to interact with select children from among his business contacts. He's also kept her very physically active (riding, fencing, dancing, trips skiiing and rock climbing etc.) so she is in perfect physical shape along with being smart as a whip and a little naive.
Now she's 18, sweet, innocent, lovely...ripe for the plucking...and coming into her inheritance. Legally she doesn't need him anymore but will he let her go, or will he keep her for himself?
Premise: A young smuggler takes on a job for her father who is incredibly ill. The job offers enough in payment to get him the treatment he needs but the catch is that the client is extremely paranoid and sadistic and will only take the shipment himself, not through any intermediaries. If anyone but her father delivers the shipment he's likely to torture and kill them, but her father is to ill to take the job. It's their best hope for his getting the care he needs however so she decides (against her father's express order) to take the job herself. The client lives on an alien space station so she is hoping to use a voice simulator and an oxygen suit to hide her identity long enough to make the drop and leave without him being the wiser.
He of course is suspicious and she has no choice but to follow him back to his private rooms (an entire section of the station not just a few rooms) where Earth air is the norm and she is forced to remove her suit revealing who she is to this notorious paranoid sadist.
-Something dark and twisted. No specific idea in mind as yet. Probably N/C, definite coercion, quite probably something non-human taking and forcing a young girl to do his bidding in some fashion or other but I want that to take awhile. Want something dark and gritty not just twisted and fun!
