Fairy Tales like Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella are so old that no one even knows who originally told these tales. In fact, I don’t think anyone really knows what the original versions are.
These stories have been retold an x number of times that new versions inevitably appear with each retelling. Now in present day, we even get to read published books that pretty much reinterpret or subvert the tales our parents/grandparents/nannies told us in our childhood.
So how many different versions could there be of one particular fairy tale?

Fantasy lovers must be very familiar with this trope
Let’s see if this sounds familiar. A girl who is in some way disenfranchised is left with no other recourse but to stay with a powerful but incredibly notorious magician or wizard.
