Take Cinderella for example, I spoke about this tale in some earlier posts. We all know the basic jist of the story so i’ll skip over that. I think there are many opportunities within this story to twist it in a way that still works. Taking a well loved character such as Cinderella and turning her into a devious villain could make for a really good story.
At this moment I have some rough ideas I could work on and really get into regarding this tale. I was thinking of making Cinderella a rebellious step daughter who goes of the wagon after her father passed away. The step mother struggles to have a relationship with her and Cinderella treats her step sisters horribly. As Cinderella is a compulsive liar she makes out to the fairy god mother that she is hard done by by her step family and thats how she makes it to the ball.
If I was to choose to use this story for my project I would definitely explore more options in how to tweak the story and make it more unique, Above I just discussed some very rough ideas that make the story of Cinderella a possibility for my project.
