Your Monday Morning Muse Muggers Prompts
Take any childrens fairy tale and do one (or more) of the following options:
Turn the animals into people, and modernize the setting. (or turn the people into animals...um, or any fantasy characters.)
Change the POV to the bad guy, and make him the good guy.
Write it in a different genre. (i.e. 'chicken little' as science fiction, or slash, or a romance.)
Make it a story from another world, with aliens thoughts/culture/world building influencing how the story is told.
