After the huntsman is unable to complete the task, Snow White runs throughout the forest and finds a small house of seven dwarfs (小矮人). Hearing that the huntsman didn't kill the Snow White from her magic mirror, the Evil Queen takes matters into her own hands and decides to find and kill Snow White herself. Pretending to be an old beggar, the Evil Queen gives Snow White a dangerous apple. Snow White falls into a deep sleep after eating the apple and is later wop by a handsome Prince. They live happily ever after.
In the original Brothers Grimm tale, the above isn't the end of the story as the Evil Queen unknowingly is invited to the wedding of Snow White and Prince. Once she arrives at Snow White's big day, hot iron shoes are placed in front of her and she is forced to step into the burning shoes and dance until she drops dead. This ending is much darker than that seen in the 1937 Disney film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The Disney film adds a child-like wonder to the tale with the dwarfs each being named and therefore they all have their own personalities: Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy and Dopey. Also in_variation to the original tale, the Prince and Snow White have met before her eating the apple and Snow White wap immediately after the Prince kissed her. They live happily ever after.
The 2012 film Snow White and the Huntsman added something new to the tale. The Huntsman is told to return Snow White to the Evil Queen. If he does that, the Evil Queen Will bring his wife back from the dead. Upon realizing that this was an empty promise, the Huntsman decides to teach Snow White how to fight against the Evil Queen.

In most cases, you're better at one writing element over the rest, and working on your strengths will worr advantage. Building characters, however, is important to your writing. It's not to be ignored no matter what your case is. So, how do you achieve that?
Make Them Real
This is probably one of the most common pieces of writing advice: mar characters believable. What does it really mean? It means that your characters need to be there for a reason, not just for pushing the story forward. He/ She has a real life, with his/her own fears and dreams, and you have to show this. Your characters don't need to be typical (典型的) to be believable. The unusual ones are even more interesting, but it's your job to mar readers relate to them.
Understand Human Psychology (心理特征)
To build great characters, you'll need to understand people's psychology: what are they thinking about, what are they feeling and experiencing, and why are they doing what they are doing? Get behind the obvious. Be in the backstage with them. Sit them in a chair and let them talk away. If you truly listen, you will learn.
Be Your Character
When you immerse (使沉浸) yourself in your writing, you get lost in that world and you start living in it. This is when the magic happens and you become your character. By putting yourself in your character's shoes, you allow yourself to experience what you're writing about first-hand. The more it feels real to you, the more the readers will feel the same, too.
