I'm a writer of aricles, poems & songs. Here's some cool stuff I wrote.
It is the best fairy tale I’ve read from that section of the planet from that section of time.
The switch on this story is that the female character is the smartest character, without any Disney Beauty & the Beast tweaking (Belle is a kind character, but not necessarily a clever bookworm).
The Farmer’s Clever Daughter wins the day via her intelect & cunning rather than being hot, super-duper nice or a damsel in distress. Rather, the farmer’s clever daughter puts the king in harms way in order to prove a few points to him.
Serina pointed it out to me earlier this year, and you should give it a read:
mandigray replied to your post: Uh, so if Aurora isn’t the most boring Disney princess, who is?
Aurora for sure. I don’t even remember what the hell that movie is about. I know she’s a sleeping princess, I want to say the prince brings her back to life, but that’s the snow white apple thing, right?
Yeah. I’ve read the Grimm story recently, and it is very similar to snow white. In regards to disney, there is even a version of sleeping beauty which involves a glass coffin, like disney put snow white inside of. Although, disney really shit all over the grimm stories, and everybody knows this.
Although part dux, many stories from that period involved a girl having some asshole parents who curse her, and then some hot dude comes and saves her ass by making out with her.
