Seven Deadly Sins aka The Trouble with...Seven Deadly Sins (The Trouble With...)
1. The Trouble with Pride
Once upon a time there was a very handsome man who had all of the best clothes, was friends with all of the best families, and went to all of the best schools. In his society he was unparalleled in all of his tangible traits, and as such he thought very much of himself- some would argue too much. One day after finishing a book about architecture, he suddenly thought himself a genius on the subject and set to work constructing a stately new home. He planned it all out alone, although hired common laborers to do the physical work he deemed beneath him. Though the laborers were themselves very knowledgeable on the subject, the man spotted what he thought was an error when the house was near completion.

The TowerThe Tower
Once there was a Prince whose father was very sick and would soon die. As this Prince would become the next king, he thought it best to find a wife to be his future Queen. He started meeting with beautiful Princesses of foreign lands, the educated noblewomen of his own kingdom, and even a few good looking commoners that had managed to put in a good word for themselves. Still, no matter how many women he interviewed, he didn’t think any of them would make a suitable Queen.
He’d nearly resigned himself to the idea of ruling alone, when one day he heard the palace staff whispering about a myth in the kingdom. It was a story about a girl with long beautiful hair, and he became intrigued, asking for more information. The female servants giggled with glee and began to tell the Prince the story of poor Rapunzel. She’d been kidnapped by the old witch Mother Gothel as a baby, and forced to live in a secluded tower. She grew up completely ignorant of the world around
