The genius guru of internet archives and resources is the indomitable Karen Chace.
She has years of story sources often categorized by theme available for everyone. She is on Storytell and can be emailed directly.

And there are Storytelling Motif indexes by Stith Thompson and Ante Arne in research sections of libraries and
Margaret Read McDonald compiled a motif source book.

If you read many variants of the same story you will craft a new satisfying version.

All the best.
