This means don’t soften it up; the bad stuff has to happen. Internal conflicts occur when the struggle is within a character. When Welsh fairies yield to their mortal lovers and consent to become their wives, it is always on some condition or promise. In many fairy tales, marriage acts as a kind of a closing sequence for the “happy ending”, simply because it was an expected stage of life for women during the periods in which these tales were first told.

As I noted in an earlier article, "fans…often use folklore much as the show itself does: as a way of reflecting and commenting upon Sam and Dean's relationship" (Tosenberger 2008, 5.4). However, she finds that, true to his word, the snake has leaped to his doom. They also negate the claims of some scholars who have held that most traditional fairy tales originated much more recently. "Versions of 'Beauty and the Beast,' 'Rumplestiltskin' and 'Jack and the Beanstalk' have probably been around since before the existence of many modern European languages, like English, German, Russian and French, and would have originally been told in a now extinct ancestral language from which those tongues evolved," co-author Jamshid Tehrani of Durham University told Discovery News.

Jack Zipes writes in When Dreams Came True, "There are fairy tale elements in Chaucer 's The Canterbury Tales, Edmund Spenser 's The Faerie Queene, and ... in many of William Shakespeare plays." [33] King Lear can be considered a literary variant of fairy tales such as Water and Salt and Cap O' Rushes. [34] The tale itself resurfaced in Western literature in the 16th and 17th centuries, with The Facetious Nights of Straparola by Giovanni Francesco Straparola (Italy, 1550 and 1553), [31] which contains many fairy tales in its inset tales, and the Neapolitan tales of Giambattista Basile (Naples, 1634–6), [31] which are all fairy tales. [35] Carlo Gozzi made use of many fairy tale motifs among his Commedia dell'Arte scenarios, [36] including among them one based on The Love For Three Oranges (1761). [37] Simultaneously, Pu Songling, in China, included many fairy tales in his collection, Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio (published posthumously, 1766). [32] The fairy tale itself became popular among the précieuses of upper-class France (1690–1710), [31] and among the tales told in that time were the ones of La Fontaine and the Contes of Charles Perrault (1697), who fixed the forms of Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. [38] Although Straparola's, Basile's and Perrault's collections contain the oldest known forms of various fairy tales, on the stylistic evidence, all the writers rewrote the tales for literary effect. [39] In the mid-17th century, a vogue for magical tales emerged among the intellectuals who frequented the salons of Paris.
