New Ideas, Old Fairy Tales...!!!

Hey Everyone,

Yesterday I was walking my dog when I came up with a new twist on a old fairy tale. I was thinking of doing a new Alice in Wonderland Story. A story about Alice, an elderly woman in a mental hospital telling these stories of her when she was a little girl in wonderland. I figure the story could be made into a much more darker and horrific tale that still has that beautiful magical flare that the enchanting old story possessed. I really think this would be an interesting twist on Alice in Wonderland since every one seems to want to keep her young and innocent. Why not let her grow up? Have children of her own or end up alone? Why not let her be a insane old woman who never knows whats going on? A story narrated by Alice about Alice. I think that would be an awesome story to take on.

Now, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this Alice and Wonderland twist. I've never done anything like this before and I'm defiantly going to do some research from the old books to help me create this new story. Hopefully soon I will have more details on this my future plans for this book but for right now this is all I can give away. I wonder if I can even use it Alice in Wonderland. I'll have to look into that.

I think that sounds like a great idea, the original Alice in Wonderland is already a bit dark, but I think it would be cool if you added a dark twist that shows how Wonderland came to be or dark secrets about Alice herself... Perhaps make her, in real life, a serial killer who would kill when she was in 'Wonderland'. Just a suggestion.

Well, that game I was talking about might actually be more similar to my book idea than I had realized. It was basically my idea but in game form and Alice insane. Blah. I really wanted to create this story.
