Fairy Tale AU (also known as Fantasy AU) is an AU (Alternate Universe) within the Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons universe and the Rise of the Brave Tangled Frozen Dragons universe. In the AU, Hiccup, Merida, Rapunzel and Jack Frost are placed into the world of a popular Fairy Tales and Fantasy. Because it is not canon, ideas for this AU are shown through fanfiction, fanart and other fan-made works.
About the AU
This AU places all of the characters in scenarios akin to classic fairy tales (or fairy tale-like stories), whether they are Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales, etc. Since Rapunzel herself is an actual fairy tale character, just like Elsa and Anna are based on characters from the Snow Queen, the AU would maybe focus on her more than the others. Because both Shrek and Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs (two films that are mediumly part of the fandom) take place in their own versions of fairy tale inhabited worlds, as well as both Tangled and Frozen being fairy tale based films of Rapunzel and the Snow Queen with a their own unique twists, the idea of fairy tale people and creatures existing as civilians in the fandom is not a new premise or a completely random concept, fans like to expand upon this idea in many ways.

The Big Four
Hiccup is mostly the main characters in 4 of the Fairy Tales: Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel, The Snow Queen and Tarzan, but he is the side characters in: Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and The Little Mermaid.
Jack is mostly the main characters in 4 of the Fairy Tales: Alice in Wonderland, The Snow Queen, Peter Pan and Tarzan, but he is the side characters in: The Little Mermaid.
Merida is mostly the main characters in 5 of the Fairy Tales: Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, The Snow Queen and Tarzan, but she is the side characters in: The Little Mermaid, Rapunzel and Peter Pan.
Because Rapunzel is technically already a fairytale (Rapunzel), she basically plays the same role given to her. Other than that, Rapunzel is mostly the main characters in 5 of the Fairy Tales: Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, The Snow Queen and Tarzan, but she is the side characters in: The Little Mermaid.
Astrid is mostly the main character in 2 of the Fairy Tales: Beauty and the Beast and Alice in Wonderland, but she is side character in: The Little Mermaid and Tarzan.
Toothless is mostly the main character in a Fairy Tale: Beauty and the Beast, but he is side characters in: Alice in Wonderland, Aladdin, Rapunzel and Peter Pan.
In the Quantic Universe, the fictional universe that the Miraculous Ladybug series takes place in, its version of Pied Piper of Hamelin was revealed to be a past holder of the Fox Miraculous (as it was confirmed by Thomas Astruc when he was asked if the Pied Piper was a past Fox Miraculous holder). This fact would mean that other fairy tale or folklore figures like him might be past Miraculous users as well, since all fairy tales and legends have to start from somewhere.
Because Red Shoes is technically already a fairytale (Snow White [which is also her real name]), she basically plays the same role given to her. Along with playing herself (much in the same way that Jack Frost plays himself in the Seasons Guardians AU), since she comes from a fairytale inhabited world; like the one DreamWorks created for the Shrek franchise.
The Fearless Seven
Just as Red Shoes is the parody of Snow White from the classic Disney Princess, as well as the original fairy tale that both films were drawn from, each member of the Fearless Seven are drawn from four other fairy tales. As both Merlin and Arthur are based on characters of the same names from the Tales of King Arthur. While the story that Jack and his name were based on was from Jack and the Beanstalk, just as Hans and his cook skills were inspired from Hansel and Gretel. As for the triplets, Pino, Noki and Kio, their wooden mech and weapons were drawn from Pinocchio. Along with their names being the word "Pinocchio" that was split into three separate words.
Fans can easily use these facts to portray them as characters from those fairy tales.
