I'm writing a little story, inspired by the Brothers Grimm. I want to 'do away' with a character for a good portion of the story, but have him return later on. I'm thinking of turning him into a bird that will help the main character along the way (the main character being his child). It reminds me of the traditional Cinderella story, though. For those of you are who are familiar with the Brothers Grimm version of Cinderella, does it sound too similar?
On another note, do you like The Incredibles? If a second movie were to come out would you see it?
