The Little Mermaid (Original story 1837)

Disney where Ariel falls for Prince Eric who eventually leaves after making an agreement with Ursula – she will become human if he kisses her lips which have been magically turned into those found on land animals; however this deal includes another condition. Every step taken feels like walking atop glass shards until finally you realize there are no more pieces left so long as your heart remains true toward him (or whichever person may apply).

The step-sisters in this story have quite the tough time. They cut off parts of their feet to fit into beautiful glass slippers. Only for those same birds that helped Cinderella before them show up at a weddings with eyes gouged out. Because they revealed what happened after being eavesdropped on by some clever princes! The end result? A happy ending where both sisters attend as guests numerour times. One wearing shoes made from tissues (part reminders not everyone can be perfect).
