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.
