Fairy tales [the originals]


No one is ever to old for fairy tales, especially if it's your own fairy tale. It doesn't matter if the fairy tale is the original kind of gory and sexual version or the fluffed up appropriate for children/Disney version either. All that matters is that you enjoy the fairy tale, and hey maybe invent one of your own through any kind of means, writing, movie making, script writing, etc. 

Also did you know that many modern stories evolve around some sort of fairy tale. Like the classic story Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. That story has some if not many of themes from the story Bluebeard.  It may not be obvious to those who haven't read that fairy tale (certainly not to me, since I've never heard of the story Bluebeard till now.) Or how some movies evolve around certain fairy tales. Shrek anyone? Even the movie Puss in Boots is based off of the actual fairy tale of Puss in Boots. Which should be kind of obvious considering that it's in/part of the movie Shrek and that movie has a whole bunch of fairy tales in it. 

Most of the [original] fairy tales that I read so far isn't like their modern versions, well kind of. The originals has the uncensored stuff, while the modern ones will take some stuff out so it can be suitable for children. Or the original just seems a bit different from the modern versions because it has been changed a bit. An example would be the Gingerbread Man. 

His original saying: 
I've run away from a little old woman,
A little old man,
A barn full of threshers,
A field full of mowers,
A cow and a pig,
And I can run away from you, I can!

Updated version:
Run, run, as fast as you can!
You can't catch me!
I'm the Gingerbread Man! 



Now here's a link to original fairy tales, where it has links and sources to modern adaptations of fairy tales. SurLaLune Fairy Tales

  1. You had a cute story here. I was once believed that fairy tales are real. I imagine myself being one before. It is so funny. I just recall it today. :)
