o previously threatened to kill all girls) and lives with them = possibly a bad idea.

notes for a happy ending:

1.     Have old lady give princess impossible task = not speak for 7 years

2.     princess says OK, goes and sits in tree and starts spinning something = “Me Jane, come get me Tarzan!” = exotic stereotype

3.     Introduce new character = King #2 goes hunting in forest > sees quiet hot chick who can make her own cloth! = “I’m gonna marry this one!”

4.     Change of scene (enough of that LA forest!). K2 brings silent wife back to castle = mother in law suspicious = “Why don’t that bitch ever talk?”

5.     Compress multiple accusations by MIL of DIL. Have culmination be= “Why don’t she laugh even? – what’s her story?”

6.     King #2 (son) says – “you’re right Mom, let’s burn her” = thanks a lot.

7.     Quickly build tension = Princess clothes on fire = she’s gonna die people.


8.     Introduce last minute rescue:  ravens touch down, turn into guys, put out fire, and explain very quickly to king what happened.

9.     Take it out on older woman: MIL put in barrel with boiling oil and venomous snakes = nice touch to have the snakes in there too.
