The version from Sandman was pretty dark... I like that one.
Though I suppose my favorite is the one where the grandma is eaten for certain, but the girl is saved. So the girl gets to live, but she at least suffers the knowledge that her incompetence cost her grandmother her life.
There are so many different versions of the story available. I'd say my favorite version is the Grimm version of Little Red Riding Hood. Though I do like the version (can't remember a specific author) where Little Red Riding Hood and Granny both die, there is no woodsman to save them. It does teach people a lesson, don't let strangers in your house.
Just about any version that wasn't that recent movie or that really short story where she is packing a gun.
The kiddy version, the pg-13 version with the hunter, the one without the hunter and granny dies. Where they both die. Modern tales were Red is psycho, Red is crazy and the wolf is her pet/friend or a figment of her imagination, the Path game, Red is a clever girl who entraps ***** and makes them confess and commit suicide out of guilt. I rather like the story and the many variations of it as long as it doesn't get too melodramatic.
I always imagined Red Riding Hood as this little child who doesn't know any better so meeting a wolf isn't such a big deal and stuff and the wolf is a deciever type of character (like the wolfand3pigs) and he tricks her and maybe feels some small type of affection torwards her but isn't going to change for a girl like 99.9%%% of all characters and he eats her and big horrific gorey scene and tragedy and whatnot
i know i will receive hate for this, and people will think im uneducated about a million other different versions. But I do like what Once Upon A Time Did. And make Red the Wolf. Also Granny is so awesome in the show.
she is sooo lame she thinks that she is soo cute walking through the woulds looking all cute but she is just a snack for the wolf evilevilevilevilevilevilevilevilevilevilstressedstressedstressedstressedstressedstressedstressedscreamscreamscreamscreamscreamscreamscreamscream
I've always been a little creeped out and fascinated by Little Red Riding Hood. I, mean, there are some creepy versions where Grandma gets eaten and not cut out of the wolf in rescued, an older French version I read once where I think it implied the wolf molested poor little Red, and so on. Anyways, I really like Red/Ruby on Once Upon a Time, and I'm trying to dress my avatar as her in FTL. I'd appreciate any opinions or suggestions.
