Website of the Day: Proppian Fairy Tale Generator


Online generators of any kind tend to suck my time and make me happy (still love the conversation heart generator). So when I found a Fairy Tale Generator the other day, I almost didn't know what to do with myself.

Based on Vladimir Propp's studies of structure in Russian folk tales, the Proppian Fairy Tale Generator lets you pick your desired plot themes such as struggle, villainy, rescue, and weddings, and the generator does its thing. Your results come up as your very own fairy tale — one of mine started off as: "A serpent in the stream asked me, 'What do you have in your bag?'" It's no Snow White, but it's promising. I'm still waiting for the prince to rescue my Princess Peach, though.
