A Tale Dark and Grimm

Falling Action
The conflict is that no adult alive in their town would take good care of them and treat them the way that they should be treated. In the story, Hansel and Gretel were repeatedly disappointed by their parents and the adults that they met on their journey. They feared they would have to live on their own for the rest of their lives.
Point of view
Hansel and Gretel are both telling the story in first person. The author is telling the story in third person.
Resolution part 1
Hansel and Gretel sneak into their fathers room and kill him by cutting off his head. So then Gretel takes a piece of twine and wraps it around their fathers head and body. Then he comes back to life , and the dragon appearance is gone.
Rising action
The prince and princess had two kids named Hansel and Gretel. Then one day Johanne's statue began to move and then it began to speak. It said to the prince "if you want me to come back you have to cut off the heads of your children, then smear the blood all over me." So he did that and then he reappeared. The prince cried on the floor and Johannes took the heads and placed them back on the bodies. Hansel and Gretel then reappeared also. When Hansel and Gretel grew up, they thought they would cut off their heads again so they ran away.

When Hansel and Gretel split up during the story, they are on different journeys. Johannes meets Hansel when he's on his journey and tells him why he left his parents. Hansel wants to go home but Johannes stops him. Their is a dragon that is destroying the town of Grimm. Hansel and Gretel find each other in the story and try to stop the dragon but it is impossible. They failed but later in the story they find out that their own father is discussed as the dragon. The only way to destroy the dragon is to destroy their father.
The theme of the story "A Tale Dark and Grimm "is don't jump to conclusions or else bad things can happen. Also, teamwork is key. If you don't work together your lost and you're not going any where just like Hansel and Gretel did.
I wish I could have changed the end of the story by them killing the dragon, and that the dragon is not their father so that he didn't get hurt.
