Note: I did NOT make this story up. It is based on the Italian fairytale Snow-White-Fire-Red by Thomas Frederick Cane.
Through Dama Fortuna and Uther Pendragon's union, they had a son, called Charming, but then an ogress called Incapacita curses their relationship, which made Uther find another woman, have a son with her, kill her and leave their son at a school called Worcestershire. She also cursed Charming to be unable to marry till he finds Snow-White-Fire Red. This lead Fortuna to hate ogres, claim that they "don't live happily ever after," and raise her son to hate ogres.
Many years went by, and Snow-White-Fire-Red was born and in the custody of Incapacita. Prince Charming notices the tower, climbs it and finds Snow-White-Fire-Red, who…Read more >

Note: Since Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is coming to cinemas this coming Friday and it will have the Ogress Queen Mother In, I decided to do a prequel to my Sleeping Beauty story, where Princess Briar Rose meets Prince Stefan’s Mother.
After Stefan defeated Carabosse and freed Briar Rose, they decided to meet Stefan’s mother, Queen Alexandra of Squiloc. However, when they met her, she didn’t quite like Briar Rose. She reluctantly agreed to give her a chance, and they all sat down to dinner. However, Alexandra made a mess of it and Stefan ran off, furious.
“Your Majesty, why do you hate me so?” sobbed Briar Rose.
“My dear,” said Alexandra, “I had a bad experience with humans when I saw my brother killed by one. Ever since, I have had PTSD and …Read more >
"A legend is sung, of when Far Far Away was young, And knights were brave and bold, Good King Uther had died, And no one could decide, Who was rightful heir to the throne, It seemed that the land would be torn by war, Or saved by a miracle alone, And that miracle appeared, In the town. The Sword in the Stone."
And so Excalibur was planted in Far Far Away, with words on it: "Whoso pullet out this sword from this stone and anvil, is right wise King born of Far Far Away."
Many men tried with all the strength, but no one could as much as stir it. That is until Prince Harold of King Midas's kingdom, who had been turned human by Dama Fortuna, had a go and managed to pull it out. Before that, he received tutelage from the powerful wizard, Merlin. A…Read more >
Note: I’m doing this story because since Prince Charles appears in a photo during the Fairy Godmother Song, I think he has had a bit of history with Dama Fortuna. That is where this story comes in. So here we go:
Dama Fortuna had gone throughout all over the country trying to find the perfect kingdom for her son to settle in. She was about to give up when she saw a man who looked like a prince moping on the pavement.
“What’s up?” she asked.
“My wife, Princess Diana, died in a car accident and now I feel lonely.” he explained.
“Well, you’re in luck!” Said Fortuna, “I’ve seen another noble lady called Camilla walking by right now!”
“Yeah,” said Charles, “and I think I have feelings for her.”
“Well,” said Fortuna, “I will get her to notice you and y…Read more >
The Terminator is a half-wooden puppet character who tried to attack Far Far Away but a woman named Sarah Granger (nee. Connor) stopped it. She gave birth to a girl called Jane Granger, but she hired a guy named Kyle Reese to help her with it, but he ended up replacing Jane’s father in the process, thus giving birth to a boy named John Connor.
I thought of this being a short little story because I don’t know the ins and outs of The Terminator as I do my other stories.
All credit goes to @WilsonHydetheThird for inspiring me to do this. Oh and @WilsonHydetheThird, if you could tell me the ins and outs of The Terminator for me to make this story longer, I would be grateful.Read more >

A Half-wooden puppet is the offspring of a human and a wooden puppet. Examples include the Shrek version of the Terminator.
I was watching the “Funkytown” sequence on YouTube and I couldn’t help but notice a woman dressed in green and have green horns on her head. She reminded me of Princess Zara, the main antagonist in the video game Disney Princess: Enchanted Journey. Could she BE that character? Shrek DOES make references to Disney, after all.
Even if the video game came out after Shrek 2, the game makers could’ve been inspired to design Zara after that specific character.
Here are the comparison photos.

So IS she Princess Zara? Please let me know in the comments
Since Toodles’s story of The Little Mermaid happened, it was made into a book and it’s popularity was huge. Even Toodles’s twin sister, Anastasia, got a copy. She had red hair and a green tail. She got jealous of her sister’s success and wanted a tale like hers. So she went to a sea vampire-like witch named Count Ursula, who said she couldn’t repeat history, but agreed nonetheless. She turned Anastasia into a human and she went to the aquarium to fall in love. She met a handsome young man named Derek, but she didn’t love him. She met every male she saw, but she wasn’t in love. She, Ursula and every resident in that lake had to escape to a sea filled with sharks to escape a rain storm. Anastasia and Ursula then saw an ogre couple and Anastas…Read more >

writer's note: This was a story I've been fighting myself with for a good while now. For one, the story of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde seemed like a great horror tale to throw into the Shrek universe for laughs. However, the other story I've decided to connect it with is not only too modern, but not even in the public domain. In case you're wondering, it's Matilda. I can't just throw something together and claim it's "Shrek related" after all-- it has to somehow make good use of the lore and rules set in the franchise. Thus, the time period is much farther in the past, possibly around the mid to late 1800's (which is where I believe the Shrek series is set in). And to help connect with the series, a discovery of truth made by Matilda will be featured…Read more >
Once, in the English countryside of the Lakes, a baby was adopted into the Wormwood family and named Matilda Hermione. Her family were so wrapped up in their own silly lives they barely noticed they had a daughter. Matilda was really smart, so started reading and looking after herself at a really young age. Her brother went to school, her father sold used cars for unfair prices and her mother went to bingo, so she was left alone most weekdays. Her family also had TV dinners. One time, her father snapped at her about the dinners, so she got back at him by sticking her friend Fred's parrot up the chimney and made it make scary sounds. That only toned him down for a short amount of time however, as he shouted at her again for "cheating," so s…Read more >
James Henry Trotter was a normal boy living with his parents near Duloc Hills Beach and had a happy life with them, until one day his parents were killed by strange people, thus he had to live with his aunts and uncles, Aunt and Uncle Spiker and Aunt and Uncle Sponge. They made him do all the work, like clean the house and chop the wood. They also constantly berate him and never let him have a normal childhood. They even tried selling him to Farquaad, but to no avail.
One day, when James had had enough, a mysterious man came down from the sky.
"Who are you!" asked James.
"I'm your Fairy Godfather," the man replied. "Here are crocodile tongues. One thousand long slimy boiled up in the skull of a dead witch. Don't let them get away. And beware …Read more >
Once upon a time, near Duloc Hills, there was a guy called Farley who hated wolves. However, one night of a full moon, a werewolf broke into his house and bit him, causing HIM to become a werewolf and go on a rampage.
The next day, a boy called Paul was told to watch the sheep on the hills. He was bored, so he yelled “Help! Werewolf!” and the villagers came and Paul said “Fooled you!” This happened another time, so when Farley the werewolf came and ate the sheep, no one believed Paul, so Farley ate him too.
He also went to Bo Peep’s farm and harassed HER sheep too, which caused her to seek help from an ogre who was performing good deeds to get his royal wife back from an evil sorcerer.
After being dealt with, and returning to human form, Farl…Read more >
OK, so since Roald Dahl Day is coming up soon, I’m going to write my version of how at least 1 story of his went down in the Shrek universe. These stories will be as follows:
James and the Giant Peach: A boy escapes from his 2 aunts and 2 uncles and battles the twin brother of his Fairy Godfather with help from a Giant Peach and insect friends.
The Twits: The Twit family who live in a caravan labelled 281 get their comeuppance by animals they abuse.
Matilda: A 10 year-old country girl deals with her 2 adopted parents and her teacher’s wicked stepmother of an aunt with magical powers.
Friar Crunchypants, Carl and the Crunchypants Cereal Factory: An original story that will have elements from the 2 movies as well as from the comics.

Soon, Toodles and Derek had a son called Henry, but Toodles was overprotective of him, even when he was a teenager, so he was like a "mama's boy." Henry knew there was something different about him, since he felt like an outcast, but he didn't know what.
One day, when he and his family visited the aquarium, he secretly swam about in the sea, when a sea witch, the sister of the witch from the 1st Little Mermaid, came up to the surface, and turned him into a merman. He then began to explore the sea, where he met his maternal family, such as his grandfather, King Neptune. Unfortunately, his mother had passed away.
However, it wasn't all fun and games. The Fairy Godmother of Far Far Away and her right-hand man, Wilson Hyde, plotted to get rid of…Read more >
Once upon a time, in the Kingdom of Stanley, there was a princess called Cindy and her father, the King. Her mother had died by childbirth and the King couldn’t rule his kingdom anymore, so he hired his advisor to rule and he moved to a small chateau in Far Far Away, where he met Lady Macnair and her children, a boy named Boris and an ugly girl named Mabel. Cindy was made to be a servant in her own home and was given the spiteful nickname “Cinderella” by Boris instead of “Cinderclod” by Mabel. Cindy didn’t tell her father, for he was ruled by Lady Macnair and thus would have scolded her.
One day, an invitation came from the Kingdom of Stanley for a Royal Ball to take place there for the advisor to find a wife. Because Cindy’s father hadn’t …Read more >
writer's note: This was an idea originally intended to showcase the existence of Stromboli (a character seen in Shrek the Third) and combine that with elements from the Pinocchio novel. While I believe references to the 1940 film definitely exist, there's nothing that supports the entire backstory of the wooden puppet is exactly like the Disney movie. Thus characters like the Blue Fairy and Jiminy Cricket aren't in my interpetations of how the story happened in the Shrek universe-- since the former never made an appearance (replaced by her novel counterpart who's not a Fairy Godmother) and the latter was only a joke in Scared Shrekless. Although, since the "Puppet Master" is supposed to be Stromboli (like the Disney movie), he technically shoul…Read more >
Hello again! It's been pretty barren here lately (which I don't personally mind; I kinda like it actually :)), but I thought I'd create a reference for those who are curious about the lore of the movies. More specifically, aspects of Shrek the Musical that cause the entire thing to be considered non-canon to the main series. I understand that some people (for some strange reason) consider some parts of it canon, but one can't deny some glaring flaws that cause the whole thing to be deemed unwatchable.
With that out of the way, here's the list!
- Shrek's parents have not been shown to feel bad for their son once letting him move out. Of course this happened in the book, but he was so ugly that even they didn't want anything to do with him. Thus…
Since @WilsonHydetheThird has this story listed on one of his blogs, I thought I would try to come up with my own version of how it went down in Shrek. Anyway, here goes:
Once upon a time, on a Friday in the Kingdom of Scotland, three wicked Fairy Godmothers (called the Weird Sisters) were ending their meeting. One of them asked the other 2 whether they should meet “in thunder, lightning or in rain.” Another one said to meet “when the battle’s lost and won.” The Third said to meet with a soldier named Lord Macbeth.
Later, Lord Macbeth, Lord of Glamis, had played his part in the battle against the Normandys and was walking home with his best friend, Banquo, when they met up with the fairy godmothers, who told him he would be Lord of Cawdor, t…Read more >
Once upon a time, there was a half-ogre King called Stefan and a human Queen called Briar Rose, who desperately wanted a child. Eventually, they got a daughter, called Princess Alexandra. They invited 3 good fairies, called Flora, Fauna and Merryweather, to the christening.
“I give you the gift of beauty,” said Flora.
“I give you the gift of never being blue,” said Merryweather.
“I give you the gift of....,” began Fauna, but the door burst open. It was Carabosse.
“I see you haven’t invited me AGAIN!” She shrieked, “Never mind, I shall do to your daughter what I did to Briar Rose. I curse little Alexandra to prick her finger on a spindle on her 15th birthday and DIE!”
“Carabosse,” said King Stefan, “I promise you will fail, just like you failed …Read more >
“My Lady!” said the Captain of the Guards, “We’ve found it!”
“Well then what are you waiting for?” said Farquaad, “Bring it in!”
It was the Magic Mirror.
“Mirror, Mirror on the wall,” said Farquaad, “Is this not the most perfect queendom of them all?”
“Well,” The Mirror said nervously, “technically you’re not a Queen.”
Thelonious held up a hand-held Mirror and shattered it.
“Well,” The Mirror blabbered, “you’re not a Queen YET, but you can become one. All you have to do is marry a Prince. So just sit back and relax my lady, because it’s time for you to meet today’s eligible bachelors. And here they are:
Bachelor number one is a highly courageous lad from an ogre kingdom. He had battled many dragons before now. Please welcome Prince Phillip!

Once upon a time, in the Kingdom of Poulton (not to be confused with the British town of the same name), there was a Princess named Yasmine Bearki. Yasmine wasn’t your stereotypical princess. She was bored with the Princess life and her parents, the King and Queen, wanted her to marry Prince Manfred of the Ice Age Kingdom. Soon it got so u bearable that Yasmine left. She accidentally bumped into a dwarf with a grumpy face, but when they stared eye to eye, they both smiled at one another. They were in love. Yasmine took the dwarf, who was appropriately named Grumpy, to her parents.
“Yasmine!” said the King, “How could you think we would let you marry a commoner? Such people are inferior!
“That’s not true, Daddy!” said Yasmine, “I WILL marry G…Read more >
So I haven't done any of these in a long while... A list of wanted criminals! This time I'm going to be naming characters that could run wild in the kingdom of Far Far Away. I honesty felt like I did what I could do for Duloc, which to be honest wouldn't have enough to sustain a larger lineup. However this kingdom has a much larger environment, which even expands to the outskirts and neighboring civilizations. Keep in mind as well this is just made for fun, and I don't endorse anybody taking this seriously and making faulty edits from my influence. Anyway, here's my list!
- Rumpelstiltskin (for illegal dealmaking, attempts to exile the king and queen, and spinning a yarn without a license)
- Georgie Porgie (for kissing girls and making them cry) …
writer's note: This depiction of King Kong is in no way related to any of the original films. As such, the main plot of the 1933 classic will be ignored (as it doesn't fit the lore of Shrek), instead going for an original take. However references and story beats will be featured. It just seemed like a fun idea to try and throw this character into the Shrek universe. Anyway, I present, "Skull Island".
Months of sea travel had gone-- Captain Hook and his crew needed to rest during their long voyage. It was quite inconvenient, as they were far from any nearby islands to truly relax. Nothing except large oceans illuminated by both the sun and moon for countless days. At this rate, the treasure Hook was seeking didn't appear to be worthwhile. H…Read more >

writer's note: This is an original story, not based on any existing fairy tale. Only a work meant to showcase a "romance" taking place in the city of Duloc. Neither Amber nor Wilson are based on anybody (even if the latter is my username); I only used my name as this character because it sounded pretty good for a character. With that out of the way, here's "Amber".
Working in Duloc
After the death of the city-state's founder, Walter Duloc, workspace became barron. So many of its cast members were layed off, with most of them being forced to create new stories to please the masses. As a result, many establishments and sponsors were deserted, leaving Duloc in a state of disrepair. Thankfully, this dark age only lasted for a couple of years, as…

Suddenly, with a burst of blue magic, a Male fairy appeared. He had ginger hair and brown eyes.
“Who are you?” Asked Emma.
“I am Fortuna. Bib Fortuna. I’m not really a fairy, I’m a wizard posing as a fairy. I heard you’re in love with the son of the local King?”
“Yes,” said Emma tearfully, “But I’m a frog and he’s a human.”
“No matter,” said Fortuna, “I can turn you into a human.”
“Oh, Yes, please!” squealed Emma.
So Fortuna waved his wand and turned Emma into a beautiful human. She met Prince Shrek, they fell in…Read more >
Charming Fortuna was lunging at Artie when I stepped in between them.

“Well, then, no one forced him to do that!” Screeched Charming.
“Let me explain who your mother is,” I answered patiently and quietly, “She was a power-hungry sorceress who used you to get the title of Wicked Queen Mother. She didn’t truly care for you.”
Charming stared at me dumbfounded. He had never heard that side before.
“We all want you to be who YOU want to be, not who your mother or an…Read more >

Far away from the continents of Duloc Hills, there layed an magical island. Unlike most, this one was only visible by those who chose to run away from home or be on the verge of death. This place was known as Neverland, a realm where many supernatural creatures and even humans live alike. Fairies can roam free, and people can act how they want without any rules. Truly a reckless area, with almost everyone causing some kind of damage to others. Native Americans marked their own territory while pirates infiltrated the seas by creating loud fights. Yet not of them can compare to the most deadly figure in Neverland; Peter Pan. Once an infant born to a happy couple, he was lured away by fairies, only to find himself fixated to this new realm.

Once upon a time, in the Dragonflidojo castle in Far Far Away, there was a young princess named Snow White. She was put to work by her stepmother, the Queen, ever since her father died.

She went in, but no one was home. Tired, she fell asleep on the beds.

Once upon a time, there was a lonely wood carver named Mr. Geppetto, who longed for a son of his own. One night, he had finished making his latest creation, Pinocchio and before he fell asleep, he wished for a son.

Inspired by @WilsonHydetheThird’s character of Miser Walter Duloc (the ruler of Duloc Before Farquaad), I decided to do my own version of who ruled Duloc in the rest of the Shrek series before Scared Shrekless. And that would be Walter Duloc’s distant relative, Queen Melissa Duloc (based on Melissa Disney, Walt Disney’s distant relative) She became Queen of Duloc shortly after Farquaad’s death. She would have had to die somehow to make Duloc the ghost town it is in Scared Shrekless. I may go into this another day.
During college at Easter 2013, we were asked to do our own websites and I did a website about my own version of Duloc called the Kingdom of Haunted and a version of Britain’s Got Talent called Haunted’s Got Talent. The princess of the kingdom is called Princess Peachie Ruth Angel, she was born a dragon and it’s also based on James Bond. I even created a parody of the titular character of James Bond, called James BOYD, who I also portrayed.Read more >

Once upon a time, there was a King and Queen who had a bratty daughter named Rapunzel. They couldn’t take anymore of her brattiness so they sent her to live with their neighbour, Dame Gothel, who lived in a tower.

At one point when she did something wrong, Gothel cut and shaved her hair off, making her bald
