I thought this might be a helpful resource to some: www.classicreader.com/

Its a database of many classics (including Jane Austen, Aesop, Homer, Dickenson, etc) and its the full length stories online. I highly recommind this site! Even if not because you want to participate, its a wonderful place to read this classics at.

I hope others find this an enjoyable and helpful site!

I hadn't realized this challenge was out there until today...duh. Anyway, I have been kind of doing this with my story Faulty Fairytails for a while now. I'm not sure if any of the ones I have done so far apply but they are all takes on different fairy tales and one fable all intertwined into a longer story but some could be taken as is. Do they need to be one shots to qualify?

I've been working on a Rapunzel remake for a little bit. It isn't done yet, or even to the tower bit, but it is getting there. This is based on the Grimms fairy tale, not the movie that is coming up.

Re:Reinventing The Classics with Priestess Skye 6 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 0
Well, I just finished watching Jane Eyre. The one with the oh-so-hawt Toby Stephens.
This should be awesome. I've got 3 versions floating around in my head and I might end up writing all of them at some point...

Sesshomaru as Jane and Kagome as Rochester.
Summary: Higurashi Kagome is the Chief Financial Officer of her brother-in-law Inuyasha's company KenKon, Inc., a multi-billion dollar company. She also has a terrible secret. When her father unexpectedly dies, he leaves Kagome a present: an 8-year-old half-sister Rin. She hires Inuryoga Sesshomaru, a disgraced but innocent teacher to tutor Rin. But when Kagome's secret becomes public knowledge, will Sesshomaru forgive her or leave her?

Kagome as a combination of Jane and Rochester and Sesshomaru as Rochester.
Summary: A young noblewoman runs from her abusive husband and finds anonymous work as a tutor for the ward of the Lord of the Western Lands. The Lord is taken with the new tutor, but when it is revealed who she is, can the Lord just give her back or will he fight for the right to have her?

Kagome and Sesshomaru as Jane and Rochester respectively.
Summary: Kagome is an 18-year-old woman whose uncle has thrown her out of the house. Sesshomaru is in need of a tutor for his ward. As their relationship gradually changes from employer/employee to friendship, a terrible secret tears them apart. Can two lost souls find their way back to the other? A retelling of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre.

I've got scenes in all the stories written and the one that I'm really interested in is the first one with Kagome in Rochester's role. No, her husband isn't mad (and it would spoil the surprise of who her husband is!), but he is a b@$t@rd.

AND...

I'm also 9 chapters from the end of a Pride and Prejudice challenge that I started many many many many many moon ago: the word file dates from 2007 and it was a challenge at A Single Spark. I've just gotten around to working on it again. It actually was posted up on FF.net, but I took it down since I wanted to rework it a little.

Summary: When Higurashi Kagome and her two sisters find that a young, rich and very successful bachelor named Miroku has moved into town, they are intrigued by him. However, a night at a festival finds Kagome’s heritage being slandered by Sesshomaru- a friend of Miroku’s- who views her as very much below his own stature, and she vows never to speak with him again, which he is fine with. However, fate intervenes and throws them together often and Sesshomaru finds himself fascinated with Kagome and her fiery spirit. Will Sesshomaru learn to change the mores he was brought up believing, or will his fascination with Kagome end in heartache?

I'm not interested in replacing names, but actually re-writing the story itself with the themes and motivations the original author wrote about. In my P&P, there is no "disgusted proposal" scene between Darcy and Elizabeth; Miroku, in the role of Bingley, really enjoys groping Sango's backside and Naraku takes center stage as a villan in the style of Mr Wickham.



Cheers!

Uhm, so... It's been almost 2 years since I replied to this thread saying I'd participate... And guess what, I actually got something done! ^^;
A SessKag take on Jane Eyre, like I promised.



Summary: Too long had I not been in the charge of my own life, and for a woman with no prospects like I was, there was but one way to manage that. As a governess, I found the change I had longed for, as well as love with the enigmatic master of the mansion. But the stone walls of Thornfield held within them a dark secret I knew nothing of…

I've been rolling the idea of 'The count of monte cristo' as a sessh/kag fic for some time....but with Kagome as the Count.

Re:Reinventing The Classics with Priestess Skye 5 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 6
Okay! My take on this challenge is an adaptation of Homer's classic tale The Odyssey to Dokuga! I didn't actually do the entire odyssey, at least not yet. I just did the romantic towards the end part where Odysseus is reunited with Penelope

It's called "Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, polutropon, hos mala polla"

roughly translated the title means "sing to me of the man, muse, the man of twists and turns"

I hope you enjoy!

Re:Reinventing The Classics with Priestess Skye 5 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 5
I do believe I shall try this, using "Pride and Predujice" as my classic. Sesshomaru reminds me very much of Mr. Darcy, and the same can be said of Kagome and Elizabeth... Sango can be her best friend that ends up marrying her cousin whom originally proposed to her first (since that happened in the book), and Rin shall play the beloved little sister of Sesshomaru. Kikyo can play Kagome's sister that runs off with the soldier... Yes, yes I think this is a brilliant match.

I shall have it posted tomorrow. I do hope you all enjoy it, my muse is singing loudly now!

I think I might try that. I have always loved the story of Esther! Kagome would make a wonderful Esther with her loving heart, and Sesshomaru - duh - makes the perfect blood-hungry king. ^_~ Oh... I think I will try this once I finish my "Pride and Prejudice" response to this challange!

When I saw this challenge I just had to give it a try, so here's my attempt. It is based on Grimms' King Grisly Beard with a slight twist.
