In terms of the existence of fiction every genre of fiction still exists today In fact we can still locate the writings of ancient Greeks and Romans which dated back to as early as 10 BC The question to be asked is if these ancient forms of fiction evolved or just passed on from one generation to another I believe that fairy tales have not evolved but became one of the pioneers of the fiction we know today Let us first take fiction as a general term Fiction revolves around the world we live in From myths and legends fables and fairy tales to sci-fi horror and modern fantasy fiction takes form from one to another to fit the interests of the readers To understand this more we can compare fictions to movies Like fiction there are different genres of movies In the movie industry there is always an era of a specific genre Recently we were bombarded by horror movies - The Ring 0 to 2 The Eye The Grudge and more After the series of horror movies they soon faded away Like movies writers of fiction must always consider the taste of their readers They must consider how the interests of the readers evolve Because of this factor traditional fiction does not exist today We find them unsuitable for the present generation In addition to this fiction defamiliarizes itself to become new to readers This defamiliarization is evident in the form of the plot of the story Most of the traditional fiction have an organic plot In fairy tales we always expect a happy ending It starts with Once upon a time and ends with They live happily ever after Thus in the middle of the story readers can already predict the outcome Good deeds beget a reward is always the theme of the story But because of the attempt of defamiliarization writers twist the ending of the story showing the other side
