Retellings & Fractured Tales

This guide provides you with examples of Fractured Fairy Tales and Fairy Tale Retellings.  A fractured fairy tale is takes a tale you know and changes setting, characters, points of view or plot.  They also play with language and tropes for a humorous effect. A retelling is based on a single fairy tale that makes substantial changes to it, but stays true to the storyline and character relationship.  What is included in this guide is by no means a complete list of fractured or retold tales.
