Since this is a fairy tale board at its core... what are some fairy tales you've enjoyed the most? Whether original, re telling or even Disney-fied, what are the stories that still stick with you?

Since I'm Austrian, I might've a slight advantage wrt having heard fairy tales pretty much all my life. Other than those I've mentioned in my intro thread, I also really enjoyed "The Brother and the Sister" - Brüderchen and Schwesterchen.

It's got all the best fairy tale elements - siblings/family, an evil step mom (who is, of course, a witch), turning into an animal (always nice), marrying a king, dying and being resurrected by righteous ~love~.... it's really good yall.

Also also, I just thought of it recently, after I stumbled upon it on Netflix - I really love the one about the "Goose princess", or any of its many iterations.

It, very basically, goes like this: Princess and servant girl grow up together (or not); princess' gets married off to a far away prince, gets given a token of her mom's so the prince will recognize her; the servant gets sent with her; they bathe, and the servant steals the princess' clothes - she forces her to swap places (often either making that her condition to save her from drowning, or threatening her mother's life).

The servant girl takes the trinkets from tha princess, and when they arrive, she marries the prince; the princess, she has take her role as servant (often responsible for the geese, therefore goose princess) & she beheads her horse and nails its head on a place the princess has to walk by every day.

The head speaks to her, and calls her princess, and there's a lot of formulaic utterances involved; in the end, of course, the horse head saves her because the king overhears their conversation, and the servant girl is punished, and the princess marries the prince and they inherit the kingdom..... wipes away tear, how beautiful.
