Transcript of 01.07 Alternate Plot Structures

He stands there and looks at me as I gasp in fright, ready to defend myself. "No, it's okay, I'm not going to hurt you. I just wanted to know who was singing. It was beautiful." I stared at him confused until he filled the silence. He told me he is the kings son and he wanted to see me again. I agreed but it had to be kept a secret. Thats when he said goodbye and promised he would think of me until he came back.
Soon he tells me of his life and he learns about mine. He promised that he would get me out of this tower so I could have a happier life and we could be together...and that's when it happened. The enchantress had known something was different so she tricked me into thinking she left. She grabbed my hair and threw me on the floor, chaining me in the process. She soon made her way to the kings son and held a knife to his throat.
All I could do was scream and cry, pleading for her not to kill him. But she ignored every plea and my voice sounded like a ghost, a cold whisper. "It's okay." I could see the sadness in his eyes and in one quick motion his lifeless body fell to the ground.
I woke up screaming, confused as to where I was.
"Are you okay?" His voice was calm as he put his arm on my shoulder and tucked my hair behind my ears. "It's okay, it was just a dream."
The two techniques I chose to use were flashback and dream sequence. I started the story when the kings son asks Rapunzel to let her hair down and end it when she wakes up from her dream. But the reader doesn't realize this at first and has to read the story to know if it's a flashback, a dream, or reality. I rewrote this thinking of the movie Tangled!
"Rapunzel!Rapunzel, let down your hair!" This voice sounds different, almost unfamiliar. It's deeper than usual but it pulls me in and makes me curious. I wondered if the enchantress had a cold. I tossed my long, blonde hair over the tower and waited for her to climb up. But who comes through the window is not the enchantress, it's a man.
