In the Land of Stories Old

In the land of stories old
Dwell princes brave and maidens bold,
Peasants clever and crones so wise,
While dragons glide through storm-tossed skies.
In this land where tales do dwell,
Fate through them casts a powerful spell;
Old tales play out in strange new ways,
They twist and turn but keep their names.
And when the story’s done all through,
A happy end still waits for you.


This is an expansionary AU of Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs which completely got away from me. It’s also part of a series.

Standard warnings for artistic liberty regarding canon apply. That said, one of the most delightful things about writing something in this new-to-me fandom was that I got to be as obvious and derivative about naming as any lazy-day writer could want, because it’s canon that all the names and such are just ripped right out of a children’s book of classic stories. Never fear, though, I did manage to come up with a semi-decent explanation for why things tend to go that way in this universe…


This ridiculously long story is a work of fanfiction. No infringement is intended. No profit is being made from this work.
In the Land of Stories Old is also being posted to Archive of Our Own (AO3), but with a 5-chapter delay. 😉
