A monthly dark fantasy contest. - - - Special extended round!
** Images For Use By Upgraded+ Only **





Welcome to Poison Apple Theater, where we prefer our fantasy with a more macabre twist. Instead of reading Disney's version of Snow White full of singing birds and wishing wells, we prefer the darker version of events where after defeating her evil stepmother Snow White makes the woman dance to her death in red hot iron slippers. Instead of sunlit meadows we lead our characters into dark and sinister forests, keep our magic malicious, our apples poisoned, and our heroes just shy of evil themselves. If you think you're up to the twisted task of writing Dark Fantasy, submit your entry down below...
