Ha! I’ll bet Brenna and Tess were thinking I was going to forget to do this if I hadn’t done it by now. Well, I still have twenty minutes of Thursday left!
When I was little, I got Sleeping Beauty and Snow White mixed up. I mean, sleeping forever in a bed vs. sleeping forever in a glass coffin . . . what’s the difference other than they can more easily install a nice name plaque on Snow White’s glass display case?
Considering I write about homicidal faeries for a living, it’s sort of interesting that neither fairy tale ever really grabbed me. The baddies just aren’t interesting enough. And there just isn’t enough angst in the original versions. I mean, Beauty and the Beast was always way cooler. And the 12 Dancing Princesses . . . way more sinister. Girls sleeping forever until guys come along and wake them with a kiss? Dude, that’s sophomore year of college.
You have probably guessed by now that you don’t need to hold your breath waiting for a Sleeping Beauty retelling from me. Tess does a good enough job that Beauty don’t need me, baby!
