Once upon a time is a fairy tale universe, obviously. These are not original tales. They are stories that I love and decided to rewrite using some of our favorite characters. But I am trying to connect them together in some small way, so if something happens to a character in one story, that will also be true for that character in all the other stories. I was inspired both by the number of Trixie fan-fic fairy tale stories I've seen and read, and also by the "character as" game. I hope you enjoy this universe.

About the graphics on this page:
The gold around the edges is graciously borrowed from our own fabulous Susi (with permission, natch!).
The top divider was made for me by the gloriously selfless Dana.
The castle is from a postcard I had of Hohenschwangau, one of my absolute favorite castles I've ever visited. I hope it's okay to use it!
All other graphics are my own creation.
