Once upon a time, there was a young woman named Cinderella, who lived with her step-mother and step-sisters. Her step-mother did not treat her kindly, forcing her to do all the chores while her step-sisters got to do whatever it was people did back in those days.

One day, the prince invited the family to a ball, where the prince would choose who he would marry. Obviously, they left Cinderella behind to do various boring cleaning tasks. As soon as they left, Cinderella walked to the front door and stood facing it. Her fairy godmother appeared, though facing away from Cinderella because she didn't expect her to be by the door. Before the godmother could speak, Cinderella walked through the door and into a pumpkin. Part of her body stuck out, but she still managed to fit inside. The pumpkin, with Cinderella in it, moved through an unknown force towards the castle.

When Cinderella got to the castle, she noticed that she was now wearing a fancy dress and glass slippers. She took off one of her slippers, threw it into the ballroom, and hopped backwards back to her house.

The next day, the prince came, looking for the beautiful young lady he had danced with that night. She had apparently run off, leaving only a glass slipper. Cinderella tried on the slipper, and it fit perfectly. She married the prince, and they lived happily ever after.

The Three Bears "any%"

Once upon a time, there were three bears, who lived in a house in the woods. There was a mama bear, a papa bear, and a baby bear. One day, they sat down to eat their porridge, but found it was too hot, so they decided to take a walk in the woods while it cooled.

While they were walking, a girl named Goldilocks went into the house, jumped into the corner of the room at a precise angle, and ended up in the bedroom. She did some careful maneuvers to get to the baby bear's bed, where she lay down to rest. "And this bed is just right", she said.

The bears came home, and discovered that their porridge hadn't been touched. Then they appeared in the bedroom. "Someone's been sleeping in my bed, and here she is!" said Baby Bear. Goldilocks got up and ran away and was never seen again. The end.

Little Red Riding Hood "arbitrary code execution"

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Little Red Riding Hood. One day, she was walking through the woods, to deliver food to her sick gran— Let's start over.

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Little Red Riding Hood. One day, she was walking through the woods, to deliver food to her sick grandmother. She reached into her basket, which had quite a lot of things in it (many of which had odd names that seemed to be in foreign languages, even sometimes foreign alphabets), and moved a bunch of items around, and threw some items onto the ground. Then everything went black for a while.

Once upon a time, there were three little pigs. The first pig built a house out of straw, the second out of sticks, and the third out of bricks.

Along came a big bad wolf. He huffed and blew down the house made of straw and ate the first pig. He huffed and blew down the house made of sticks and ate the second pig. Then he huffed and puffed so hard that it blew down the house made out of bricks, and he ate the third pig. The end.

The Little Red Hen "glitched"

Once upon a time, there was a little red hen, and she wanted to make some bread. She decided to go to the other animals on the farm to look for help. She started with the dog, but instead of going into the doghouse normally, she came at it from behind, and walked right next it to get to the front. When she got to the front, she noticed that she was in a very strange place; various objects were scattered randomly, and they didn't feel like what they looked like. She felt her way around until she got to what looked like the top half of a rabbit head, and took it back home. When it was home, she found it was bread.

"Now who wants to EAT the bread?" she asked.

"I do!" "I do!" "I do!" said all the other animals.

"Well, you didn't do the work, so you don't get to eat!" she said, and she ate all the bread.
