Quillers writing novels!
So I'm not actually sure if I'll be participating in NaNo this year, but I found a wonderful prompt that I just had to share.|
We all know how Cinderella ends, but what if the shoe fit one of the sisters? What happens then? Play with your imagination here, be as funny as you want or serious if you feel like. Write your ending of the Cinderella story --but this time make the shoe fit one of the icky sisters, what does Prince Charming do? How does Cinderella cope with it? And what about the Fairy Godmother?

"Darling," Prince Charming murmured, "come back to bed."
Cinderella sighed. "I was just trying to talk to my step-sister, Icky. Seeing if she forgave me yet."
"It's been five years, 'Rel. If Icky hasn't forgiven you yet, she never will," Prince sighed. Every single year, on this day, Cinderella didn't stay in bed with him. Most other nights, she did, but once a year, no. 'Rel had to get up and ask her step-sister, Icky (a rather apt name, Charming thought himself) for forgiveness. He guessed she felt guilty about killing Icky over him, but you know, Charming wasn't about to complain. Cinderella has a much better soul, not to mention body, than Icky.
"I still think that maybe I shouldn't've killed her. Maybe she would've let me marry you, even though the slipper fit her." When all Ella recieved in reply was a disbelieving stare, she sighed. "Okay, maybe not. But still. Violence is never the answer, you know."
Charming shrugged. "Look where it got you. It might not be the answer, but it definitely is the solution."
"You're so insensitive!" 'Rel snapped. "I killed her!"
"I would have if you didn't, darling. Sorry, but it's true." And he would have. Ew. Imagine producing heirs with that cow of a female. Charming shuddered at the thought.
"Yeah, I guess you're right..." Cinderella sighed. She paused, and then returned back to bed.
