We turn to stories to comfort us, tucking us safe any warm away from the world in a fantasy of security.


But the original fairy tales were dark, warning us about the world and the dangers that awaited us, both real and imagined.  Happy endings are for favourite children -- the ones that get the thickest slice of cake, only wear the new clothes, and the ones who get invited to the ball.


These stories are not for those children.
