Tweeting Happily Ever After

I’ve read a few modern fairy tales in the past year. Some are classic updates for modern times, and I generally enjoy them. In these tales  Prince Charming may be the boy next door, but these modern rifts still deliver the happily-ever-after we expect. Others have a twist that not only removes the sugar-coating, but injects a dose of reality I’d rather reserve for the evening news. (Imagine Tom Thumb prescribed growth hormones. No, I’d rather not.)

On Twitter, @midnight challenged people to rewrite the classics with hashtag #UpdateAFairyTale.  Check it out and see what you think. There’s something for every fairy tale taste.
