Grimms’ The Seven Ravens
The Grimm tale is about a couple who longs for a daughter but after 7 sons, they finally give birth to a “sickly” baby girl and end up cursing the sons while turning them into Ravens. The father was afraid that his daughter would die without getting baptized because the sons took too long when asked to fetch water. Not the happiest of endings.
Grimms’ Herr Korbes
Herr Korbes is about a troop of would be assassins that jump on a carriage while picking up some extra help along the way. It starts out really calm and happy. Then the end is a comedic murder.
