Rags To Riches
        A young child grows up surrounded by shadowy figures who suppress and
        ridicule her, but through great testing she slowly blossoms into a mature figure
        fully worthy of her happy ending.
The basic tale behind such gems as Aladdin and Cinderella (that one's technically
riches to rags to royalty and riches), this shows the character arc, from an impoverished
beginning to a complete, Happily Ever After end. At the end the character should have
status, riches, and a mate, and often a kingdom as well.
Key to this basic plot is the false ending, in which the hero appears to have gained her
heart's desire - but it is too early, and she is too immature, so she loses it all, usually
through some fault of her own (though not necessarily matched to the enormity of the
loss). This loss is the most devastating blow to the hero, prior to the story's climax. In
Aladdin it's the moment when the evil wizard uses the genie to steal the princess (note
that the genie was lost because Aladdin failed to either keep it with him or inform his
wife of the importance of the lamp).
In another example (David Copperfield by Charles Dickens), the false ending is
marriage to an immature wife, who soon dies - so the hero may actually lose the thing
he wanted completely, only to get a better thing (a mature wife) by the end.
Anyway, here are the stages:


        A girl named Alison lived in a little house with her grandparents. She was often
had to do chores and work for her grandparents. After school she walks to the candy
store to be she work for a couple of hours. Her cousin Alfredo was a bad boy who often
put in trouble. Life was hard on Alison but she study and got in a good college and
started her own business and all get great.
  Initial Wretchedness at Home and the Call
Far more than any other story, this is a story whose backbone is the Hero's growth arc.
We start with a very young Hero in a "lowly and unhappy state, usually at home."
Antagonists of various sorts "scorn or maltreat" the Hero - though that is merely "the
most obvious reason" for her unhappiness.
This lasts until she receives The Call and either heads out, or is sent out, into the world.


       Alison got tired of working and not receiving enough for her. She work and work
but she saw nothing. One afternoon her teacher told her about a program for her so she
could keep on painting and putting her paintings on air.
  Out into the World, Initial Success
After a few minor ordeals, the Hero gets a quick but limited success, "some prevision of
their eventual glorious destiny." She may even meet her Prince, may outshine her rivals
- but she's not ready for this yet. It is pretty clear that she's got a long way to go toward
maturity before she can truly succeed.

Period                                                                                      Date
                                              Title

        She decides to go after school for some paintings practice. But everything kept
on pressing her. Her grandparents wanted her to work nook study.
  The Central Crisis
"Everything suddenly goes wrong." Some of the dark figures from her past might
reappear. The initial win is stripped away and the Hero is separated from that which she
values most - especially her Prince. (Note: The separation may be physical, or it may
be, for example, due to slander or other misinformation.) The Hero is "overwhelmed with
despair" and this is clearly "their worst moment in the story."

        Her grandparents wants her to quit the program and work some more. By this
time her grandparent went to school to pick her up and make sure she works and no
study.
  Independence and the Final Ordeal
In Aladdin, the poor boy has lost his Princess and his palace, and on top of that his
father-in-law has sentenced him to death if he can't bring them all back. More important
to the story: He's lost his genie, the magical power that was letting him do all the cool
stuff for the first half of the story. Now he's got to rely on his wits and his natural skills -
no more easy outs. But in doing this on his own, he's developing his independence and
proving that he is worthy of achieving his goal.
After the ordeals that show off the Hero's newfound strength, the Hero must undergo
one final test, one climactic battle against the Big Bad "who stands between them and
their goal."


        The teacher whom was giving Alison the class no goes to the house to teach
Alison but she is no t to sure about what’s happening with all of this they start a
romance and now she does know who to finish this.
  Final Union, Completion, and Fulfillment
At last the Hero emerges victorious, and lays claim to the treasure, the kingdom, and
the Prince.

Alison did what she knew were right and she exposing her self to the world with her
paintings. She is fully happy and she owns a business of paintings and gets a great life
