Fairy tales are found in cultures all over the earth. Many tale types have wide-spread variants. However, only a tiny handful of them are widely known in modern culture. Consequently, when a writer goes to rewrite a fairy tale into FracturedFairyTale, with parody or subversion, it generally invokes one of that handful. For instance, the FairyGodmother is a relatively rare figure in fairy tales, but having featured in "Literature/{{Cinderella}}" and "Literature/SleepingBeauty", is epidemic in the FracturedFairyTale. Even [[TwiceToldTale retellings]] that do not parody the fairy tales generally stick to the best known.
