Original Story: Resolution
Jack and his mother became very rich, and he married a great princess, and they lived happy ever after.
Fractured Version: Setting
Setting: The giant was living alone in his castle in the sky.

Good Character: The Giant

Bad Character: Jack
Fractured Version: Orientation
Once upon a time, there was a giant who lived in the sky. The giant was addicted to watching a Korean variety television show, called ‘Running Man’.

Fractured Version: Complications
Rising Actions
One day, the giant was watching ‘Running Man’ while drinking beer. As a result, he got drunk and saw a small figure crouching down, as if it was rummaging through something. The scene was just like the one that he had watched earlier. There was only 2 people left in the game, which are Suk Jin and Ji Hyo, who was his favourite character.

His vision started to blur. He thought that Jack was Suk Jin from “Running Man” and thought that Jack had found something.
“Suk Jin..” he slurred as he approached Jack. Jack was alarmed. He quickened his pace and tried to escape from the giant’s house. The giant started chasing him as if he wanted to eliminate him as he wanted Ji Hyo to win.

Fractured Version: Complications (Continued)
Falling Actions
Jack managed to escape and jumped down the beanstalk. He took an axe and wanted to cut the beanstalk into half, but accidentally sliced the side of the giant. The giant let out a whine, tumbled to the ground with a loud thud and grasped his side. The wound had started bleeding. Seeing that the giant was already taken down, Jack took the chance to flee.
Fractured Version: Resolution
The giant forgotten everything that happened that day, because he was drunk. The reporters came and interviewed him. However, he was having a bad hangover and didn’t want to be interviewed. The reporters decided to fabricate a story to frame the giant as the bad guy.

Circle of Viewpoints
I am thinking of Jack And The Beanstalk from the point of view of the Giant.
I think it is good to use the Giant's point of view because the Giant might not be necessarily at fault, it might be of other reasons that he was framed as the bad guy. As a result, he was known as a bad ogre instead of a friendly giant.
A question I have from this viewpoint is how the Jack must be described to sound that Jack was at fault.
