(smokes a Huff & Puff cigarette while exhaling relaxingly)
Oh, salutations! Didn't quite see you there stranger, I mean, you did just stumble into my manor in the middle of a totally-not-so-spooky night and expected some sort of shelter from the foreboding darkness and chill factor, correct?
(silence fills the air)
Ah, well, no matter. Come. Sit down. In the opposite chair across from mine by the fireplace. Oh no, by all means, make yourself comfortable. Can I get you anything? Pillow perhaps?
(you sit suspiciously as I grin, while handing you a blank page book with the title: "Your Fable, Your Destiny")
Well, you seem puzzled, so I'll get to the point. Basically, this will be the blank canvas (and topic) that will get you on track to start your own fairy tale story concerning the Fables universe, and, you may as well ask: "Story, you say? What makes you think I would want to create a story?" Well, stranger, that is a question I cannot answer, as it is up to you to fulfill your destiny. To create a Fable that best describes you and how they blend in with the Fabletown community.
But, you don't have to be entirely honest if you don't want to, as you have the option to create a Fable character that doesn't even relate to you in the slightest, human or not.
Anyways, be creative! And you are more than welcome to draw a picture of your custom Fable if you'd really like! You are my guest after all, in this spacious manor.
P.S. - Newcomers and veterans to the Fables series are welcome to post in this topic too! Or if you are a stranger to the comics but love the game! Don't forget to use your creative juices, the lot of you! :D
Appreciation Speech: This is for everyone who has contributed to this topic, new, old, heck, even future storytellers that are inspired by this thread!
It has been a great honor to read all of your stories so far. Every sentence, every little detail, every emotion-induced moment included with the literary package you've brought to the table. (or book, in the matter)
Wanted to say my thanks again, to everyone that has made this possible. And by doing so, I will be listing the best storytellers that I deem necessary for an 'award' from now on.
For example: the award(s) given can consist from almost anything. Such as: the most interesting Fable backstory, story with the funniest dialogue in between characters, or even the story with the most fleshed-out of characters. The variety of the award is pretty much endless the way I see it.
You can view the following Fable 'award ceremonies' for 2014 down below, if you wish.

January New Year's Challenge:
It's the start of another New Year, you hear from a friend that an evening party celebrating the occasion is about to take place in a few hours. And, being the social Fable that you are, you decide to go to the event. As you arrive at the surprisingly classy joint, you meet your friend again. He or she greets you, both of you inevitably have a good time, and... you wake up alone in Central Park the next morning.
Wait, what? How the hell did that happen? Looking around with the most puzzled look on your face, you feel that it'd be best to try and find out what happened to you last night, all while attempting to try and find some of your personal belongings in the process.
