WEFOUNDHansel and Gretel (First classics)


Hansel is born to Adrianna and her husband . He has one sister, Gretel. They lived in a small house in the forest outside of Augsburg .

Hansel & Gretel arrive at  Augsburg where they stop  Sheriff Berringer  from killing Mina , whom the Sheriff plainly wrongly accused of witchcraft, utilizing propaganda and some of his of pompousness (and a good dose of stupidity). Hansel then checks for signs of being a witch on her body, coming up negative. Then he and Gretel investigate a house in the forest where they encounter the Tall Witch. After a brief battle ensues and the Tall Witch is captured. They found on her, a scroll which tells of The Blood Moon. They arrive at the the mayor's quarters then he introduces them to Jackson , who is to help in rescuing the missing children.

Jackson says they can leave and be there in only a few hours but his plan is quickly stopped by Gretel who warns it is suicide to go after witches during the night. Meanwhile the Sheriff forces his own party to go into the woods where they meet Muriel and are all brutally killed. Hansel, Gretel and Jackson then go to a pub. At the pub, Jackson tells of the recent abduction sightings. Ben, a local, arrives and reveals his obsession over the duo's work, asking them questions right and left and severely irritating Hansel. Then a man arrives and said that there was a witch and she sent a message, before he can say anything else, however, he explodes.

What would you do if you got lost in the woods? If you're familiar with fairy tales, you might know from reading the Grimm Brothers' ''Hansel and Gretel'' that small, white pebbles are a great way to mark your trail, but breadcrumbs don't work nearly as well.

Most of us are familiar with this story, in which a brother and sister are abandoned and left to die by their father and stepmother, not once, but twice! You may also remember what happens next. The children believe their hunger is solved when they discover an edible house, only to find the tables turned when the witch who owns the house tries to eat them. Fortunately, we are dealing with clever children who escape and find their way back home, with the witch's jewels to boot.

Even if you know the story, it's always worth taking a closer look. Let's take one now by looking at some quotes from ''Hansel and Gretel.''

When they had come to the middle of the forest their father said: "Now, go and gather some wood, children. I'll light a fire so that you don't get frozen." Hansel and Gretel gathered up brushwood, a little mountain of it. The brushwood was lit, and when the flames rose high the woman said: "Now lie down by the fire, children, and have a rest. We're going into the forest to cut wood. When we're finished we'll come back and fetch you."

But the children were still awake, and they had listened in to this conversation. When the grown-ups were asleep Hansel got up again and tried to go out and gather pebbles. But the woman had locked the door and Hansel could not get out. But he comforted his little sister, saying: "Don't cry, Gretel, go to sleep quietly, the good Lord will help us."

Early next morning the woman came and fetched the children from bed. They were given their bit of bread, but it was even smaller than the last time. On the way to the forest Hansel crumbled it up in his pocket, and kept stopping to drop a crumb on to the ground. "Hansel, why are you standing and looking round?" his father said. "Get on your way." "I'm looking back at my little dove. She's sitting on the roof and wants to say goodbye," answered Hansel. "Little fool," said the woman, "that's not your dove; that's the morning sun shining on the chimney." But bit by bit Hansel dropped the crumbs along their path.

"But I do feel sorry for the poor children," said the man. The two children were still awake from hunger and heard everything that the mother had said to the father. The two children had not been able to fall asleep because of their hunger, and they heard what the stepmother had said to the father. Gretel thought that she was doomed and began to cry pitifully, but Hansel said, "Be quiet, Gretel, and don't worry. I know what to do." Gretel cried bitter tears and said to Hansel, "It is over with us!"

Hansel reached up and broke off a little of the roof to see how it tasted, while Gretel stood next to the windowpanes and was nibbling at them. Then a gentle voice called out from inside:

Then she called out: Duckling, duckling,
Here stand Gretel and Hansel.
Neither a walkway nor a bridge,
Take us onto your white back. The duckling came up to them, and Hansel climbed onto it, then asked his little sister to sit down next to him.

Hansel is born to Adrianna and her husband . He has one sister, Gretel. They lived in a small house in the forest outside of Augsburg .
