Tadzio in Cougar Town

Still with the red riding hood theme ... but given the often sexual, predatory subtext of the original story, how would that translate into this version? Would a teenage boy necessarily be wary of a (were)wolf in the guise of a powerful (and most likely older) woman? 
And if not, how about the Death in Venice scenario? But again, Tadzio is very much a Lolita in charge, playing with fire perhaps but still holding all the cards.
Then, of course, there's My own private Idaho, but that's a little too dark for this drawing - all I really want is an angle that makes the drawing work.

Perhaps all I need is to make it prettier and less dark and well, not over-think it ;)
