I was madly going through all the fairy tales I could think of and somehow I skipped that one.  Actually, that would be a perfect (and frightening) addition.  Suddenly, I'm thinking I want to switch from Alice to Beauty... hmm... *smiles shyly*  So many temptations, so little willpower.

As far as both Alice and Beast go, it's up to you as the players. I provide ideas and suggestions, but, in the end, if you don't play what you want, you won't be as happy, so I won't be doing my GM job very well, will I?

*laughs*

And Cherri Tart? Don't feel limited by the original legends by any means. Perhaps in this incarnation, Alice could be Beast's Beauty.

*hand over mouth, trying not to giggle nervously*  The problem is, I have too many ideas fluttering through my head right now.  At some point in time I need to sit down and create a character - up until then I'm likley to be a bit wishy washy (although, to be fair, I'm starting to flesh out my Alice/(Beauty?) even as  I type) *looks thoughtful*  - to heck with the rest you you, I'm playing her the way I want to play her and no one can stop me!  *blushes, but stands firm* 

Thanks for the thoughts, Glabrezubane - I think I just needed a catalyst.   Now... being new here... should I PM you a character description?  When would you like it by?  Would you like some left over spagetti...?

*grins* I've been there, believe me... I think we all have, at one point or another. I'm just glad you've taken this and run with it.

It'd be great to get the character outlines soon (Now that I think we have enough players, I'll PM some goddesses about getting a thread opened) by PM, but it isn't required. We'll probably try to get the game started sometime next weekend, so any time before then would be just fine. And, no, my dear, I'd rather have you... *wicked grin*

This sounds like a lot of fun, but I seem to be coming up blank on inspiration for a character. Time to start googling world fairytales.

Edit - Would a Sandman work? This one doesn't just bring sleep and dreams, no. He stays around to interact with them. He is an artist, a breeder and creator of dreams, using the canvas of the sleeper. Those finest ones he takes with him again when they wake, so they may be kept and admired forever. Or, if they're incomplete he can return to the dreamer and ensure they properly run their course. The best are played over and over again, as he savours the emotions of the dreamer.

Suitable?

Oh, yes - it's such a wonderful idea, how could I not?   Oh, and I think, that at some point in time, you probably will have me *smile*

Most interesting... I like it. One of my favorite comics has been Neil Gaiman's Sandman, so I've no objections whatsoever, even though I doubt this Sandman and Morpheus shall be terribly similiar.

I know I've just gotten access today, but this drew my attention right away.  I adore faerie tales, especially the dark ones.  I'd like to be the robber maiden from The Snow Queen, all fierce and cruel, with her sharp knives and her captives and her penchant for torment.  I've always loved that bit from The Snow Queen.  I'm picturing her, visually, somewhat like the Tyrant from Barbarella.  

In case you're not familiar, here are a couple of pics-

Actually, I love that movie - it's so over the top, but I love the sets and the fashions - wish I owned some of those outfits myself.
