one day, rumpelstiltskin started getting a weird feeling. instead of wanting to steal babies he saw with their families, he wanted to raise them. maybe having a baby would finally make me feel whole, he thought. but then a fellow imp said to him, “you’re already whole, rumpelstiltskin. there’s nothing you need that you don’t have already.”

little red riding hood was getting hit on by some wolf at the bar. she kept her beer close to her, and politely brushed the guy away.
“are you okay?” asked the huntsman who approached her next.

arthur and lancelot moved to a railroad-style apartment outside of camelot. arthur didn’t even want to look at the sword he’d pulled from the stone, which he now kept wrapped in an old cloth in his closet. it had become a symbol of his shortcomings.

“damn,” said lancelot from the couch, exhaling a bong rip. “shit just got real.”

snow white was standing on her balcony one night, just thinking. she had the castle and the prince but a part of her was nostalgic for living with the seven dwarves. everything just seemed more alive then.
the next day she tracked down the phone number for their cottage and invited everyone over for a party. they stayed up for hours telling old stories and at the end of the night they all put into their calendars right then when they would get together again.
