help needed

Hey guys:)

So, I've been writing this book, see (of course you know about it. ;] )... And I got this BRILLIANT (maybe) idea; Because my book is kind of "Medieval" in a very fantasy way, I thought it would be sort of fun to throw in some legendary characters. Like, maybe King Arthur and Merlin? Robbin (Hood) of Locksley? Possibly Maid Marian and Little John?
My book is total fantasy. Supposedly a long forgotten land...? But I want my characters to have the same legendary 'hero" feel as the tales people love and adore.
I guess my point of this post is-
1.) Do you like the idea of adding other well known "people" (please be honest. I want to know how this would come across to other persons of the writerly league.)?
And 2.) Do you know of other medieval characters from fairy tales that you would like to see in my book or more well known if my book -perhaps- gets published?
Leave me a comment because I would really appreciate some feedback.

Thank you for all your lovely comments the other day!!! I've missed you guys (I know I keep saying that, but its true.)

Love,
Maddie

  1. Sure! The fun part is when you make the characters all their own... make their story different then anyone knew. :)

    1. Okay! Awesome:) I'm hoping my characters make a name for themselves. Honestly, I'm very proud of them because if I was reading the book for the very first time, I'd love how real they seem to be. :) lol, rabbit trail x)

  2. I love it when writers do that! If it works well in your story, I say go ahead and do it!

  3. I really like it! Someone that would be cool to see would be Rumplestiltskin, maybe Snow White, Little Red Riding hood. I love reading contemporary fairytales, that will be really cool if you write it!

  4. That sounds like a marvelous idea! It reminds me of how C. S. Lewis put people like Father Christmas and Bachus in the Chronicles of Narnia. I think adding weel known legendary people ads to a story's charm(-: Good luck on your story!

  7. I think that is a great idea! But just make sure you make the characters your own, if you know what I mean? It reminds me a whole lot of the TV show called Once Upon a Time, they used well known story book characters but they kinda re-wrote their stories, and linked them all together. In the end, they made this completely new story that worked. It was pure genius!! :D

    So yeah, go for it! I think it is a wonderful idea!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I will try to do my best to make them fit without completely changing them. Make them recognizable but show a different part of them:) I've heard about Once Upon a Time, but i haven't watched any of the episodes. Yet. ;) But I get what you're saying! Thank you for the idea!
