I’m thinking of writing a dark(mature) retelling of a classic. While I don’t consider this fan-fic, I’m curious as to what I should label this story as. Just simply, a retelling? Is there a particular name for this type of story? I don’t have all the details of the story pinned down. I’m still in the early stages of brainstorming. Wondering if anyone else has written or attempted to write anything similar?
P.S. I’d rather not mention the name of the classic just yet.
