That's how most stories end. But that happily ever after hides something - secrets. The stories that parents read to their children are not the truth. They are just stories, made up or changed from what really happened in those lands where the stories came from. And the characters are not happy with their stories being changed.
Once they heard about this, once they learned that their truth was turning into other peoples lies, the characters decided that they wanted a fresh start. After some powerful magic, mirrors began to show up - mirrors that took the characters to a place called Ashwood. It was a small town, but it was enough. Many of these characters are now here, starting their lives over. They are here to write new stories, ones that won't be published or changed. They are here to start anew and live as themselves!
Rose Red and the Sheriff of Nottingham are finding that they very much enjoy each other. Goldilocks is learning how to believe in fairies from Peter Pan. Little Red Riding Hood is dating the Big Bad Wolf... What else could happen in these Fractured Fairytales?
Ashwood is located about about a twenty minute drive from the town of Buttonwood, Pennsylvania, within the Bark Cabin Natural Area. Surrounded by the forests, Ashwood is hidden from public view. No one that doesn't come from the "storybook world" will ever know of their existence.
Ashwood was founded by King Meridean, Merlin, and the Blue Fairy. They were talking about making a place where the trials and issues of their past could be left behind. Were people could start fresh and make a new. Together they combined their powers and borrowed an idea from the snow white story. Making magic mirrors that would only be able to be used once, they allowed people to come to Ashwood.
Spreading the mirrors around to all the different areas, people started arriving. The mirror would shatter once the people came through. There are still other mirrors out there that allow people to come into Ashwood.
The residents of Ashwood can travel in and out of the town if they wish, exploring the big cities around them and beyond that.
Battles and power struggles still happen inside this magical town, sides are drawn and people you might not expect have chosen sides.
