Here's an idea inspired by both "Stardust" and "Wakko's Wish":

A "quest" of sorts to find the legendary Wishing Star, which has come down to earth to grant one person one wish! Obviously, Winter and Spring both want the star. With new mechanics, an addition to Wintertown, a tracker (or several) of the travels of the Wishing Star's embodiment and her protector, new quests, and new characters (including, but not limited to, the tough, Spring-aligned Nutcracker Prince, the misguided, Winter-aligned Vasalisa the Beautiful, and the crafty, Writer-aligned Rumpelstiltskin), Race to the Wishing Star will be an adventure nobody will ever forget!

For example, the Jack-in-the-Box from the Steadfast Tin Soldier might be an agent of Winter!

The Following might be an interesting character:

Belle: Transformed by the Nightmare Factory into a female Beast, she is currently looking for a place to hide her injured and still-human husband. She is incredibly tough and hardy. Strangely, she is also somehow beautiful. She also must learn to control her new, semi-primal temper.

Could she work?

I always loved the Grimmlands setting for Beauty and the Beast. Belle found herself less and less impressed every day with the wimpy man that her beast had transformed into. And the beast was sad at his human form, for he had learned to love Belle with all his bestial senses, hearing her heartbeat and smelling her with his sensitive nose. In the end, they made a deal and transformed him back into a beast (at a high cost).

Interesting. Who would they have made a deal with, in this case? Or would it have been against Adam's will?

In accordance with the setting, Humpty Dumpty had gathered a large following and taken over a large portion of land. Giving himself the title, "The Rotten King", he ruled his domains with the cruel insanity of his slowly decaying mind. Amongst his advisors were The Ugly Duckling and Jack the Giant Slayer. Belle and the Beast made the deal with the foul monarch, and he worked the magic to change Beast back into his primal form at the cost of a large percentage of Beast's kingdom.

It was a cool setting.

Nice! Do you think the Rotten King might be allied with Winter?

In the context of Winter Tales, he would definitely be a leading party for the winter faction. In the context of Grimmlands, he was just a large, overbearing threat (with no specific alliances (unless the GM and players decided to edit that, of course )).

What would his associated powers be, and who would his "opposite number" for that power be?
