(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 have brought to the table (or book, in the matter) have definitely been a great addition to this thread.
Wanted to say my thanks again, to everyone that has made this possible. And by doing so, at the end of every month from now on, I will be listing the best storytellers that I deem necessary for an 'award'.
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.

October Fall Challenge:
Come up with a separate story detailing how your Fable will go about his or her Fall throughout this month. However, here's a twist - you have to write it in various day-to-day journal entries or in a personal diary format. If you're confused by what I mean, don't hesitate to ask me questions in a personal message on here.
October Halloween Challenge:
Create an epic adventure about how your Fable (or Fables) will defeat a nightmarish curse that has been brought upon the citizens of Fabletown. Be creative with your curse. Your story must include at least 1 Halloween Urban Legend.
-Bloody Mary or any other Halloween Urban Legend won't count if you have had them in your previous chapters/stories!-
Here's a site to look at if you have trouble thinking on which legends to add in your Halloween write. Note: If you aren't satisfied with the legends from the particular site I've linked earlier, then feel free to use legends of your own choosing from another source.
Write your story in a way that feels like a Scooby Doo-esque episode.
