Did anyone else grow up on the original fairy tales? The ones written by the Grimm brothers and Hans Christian Anderson? I think those are where I got my appreciation for dark plotlines and gory details. I still get mad at Disney movies when Ariel doesn't die and Cinderella's step-sisters don't chop off their toes and Snow White doesn't get revenge on her step-mother by making her dance in red-hot iron shoes until she dies.

I also really like a lesser know Grimm's fairy tale called The Death of The Little Red Hen.

i love the grimm fairy tales, i used to read one to two stories every night before i fell asleep, they were my favorites! all the reality of death and cruelty, mixed with the fantastical magical aspects of things was so wonderful to me, i have never really liked happily ever afters. they just don't sit right with me, cause they aren't actually the end.
