For many people this might be the first and only time ever hearing the stories and you have a tendency have in doing them with your 21st-century views. You tend to make small changes to the narratives which completely change their outcomes and anyone who is familiar with them should notice this. Sometimes a small change can affect a story in a great way. Have a great respect for you and what you’re doing bringing the stories to the people. You also seem to have a hatred of medieval and premarital but they really aren’t as bad or expensive as you make them out to be.
