Snowflake Challenge - day 10

In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (Or a few!) Tell us what makes it work for you, and why it appeals to you so much. Talk about what you like to see in fanworks featuring that theme most. Feel free to include recs and examples! Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I really love fairy tale, myths and legends, and I love to use them again and again.
I love rewritings, when they are well done (I have high standards for this since literature had been doing it a lots since centuries). In fantasy, in plays, in poetry, anything.

In fandom, in addition to even more rewritings, I love fairy tale AUs and myth AUs! The interesting part is to find exactly the right fairy tale that just suits a characters. it's simple stories, about family, love, ambitions, fears, adventures, and of course you'll often find the one which is just right.

I also love when in universe, the author is using symbolism (subtle or not subtle at all) so we can see that he saw a parallel with a myth in his story, and shows it. When it's unsubtle, it's fun when the characters show the patterns themselves, and lampshade them.
