fairytalesbot

fairytalesbot is an open source Tumblr bot created by Michael Paulukonis.

Daily posts a generated fairy tale, built from templates based on Vladimir Propp's Russian "wonder tales" narrative functions. It was originally written for NaNoGenMo 2014, but only wired-up to Tumblr in 2016. Writing the generator taught me that it is not the best model for generating narrative - but since it exists I hope to sand some of the rough edges off and continue to have fun.

A slightly-earlier version post titles-only at twitter.com/FairyTaleTitles.

There is also an interactive page where you can select different elements, and a brief write-up on author's blog.
