Well, i would like to think that most of us grew up reading fairytales.
come on the oh so great classics out there like cinderella, snow white and the seven dwarves, sleeping beauty? you dont even need disney to know these classics.
SO, anyways it gets to my point. Yesterday i was watching the latest episode of gossip girl (which was AMAZING for any fans that missed out) and blair says: "now i know why fairytales end when they do"
But yah, she's right, they end where they do for a reason. Common, look at it. they all end with them married and they all live happily ever after, but what happened if it didnt end there?
Like think about it, Cinderella? Prince finds girl that fits "glass slipper" and marries her. So what if that didnt end there? What if it the two would have gotten more time to get to know each other more share stuff about their lives. Like cinderella would tell him her life tragic story, and the prince can talk about his quest for love. I'm pretty sure the two would get bored of each other pretty quick. Commmmoon, this man found her at a ball and fell in love with her at first sight. Sorry, i am not a beliver in that "love at first sight" mumbo jumbo, and what if cinderella isnt either? Also, cinderella, what makes you think that she loves this prince she's forced to marry, what if she's just using him to get out of her horrible state (being the slave to her step mom and sisters) and once thats finalized, she'll just divorce the prince and take half his money? I'm pretty sure royalty fairytales dont belive in prenups. There should be a sequel to cinderella, called "Cinderella, life after the ball" and a sequel to that "Cinderella: divorce". And the last one will show a fat cinderella (because she was finally fed real food) with like 4 children trying to gain half of the prince's money and custody of the four children and make him pay child support.. ALSO, if you think about it cinderella doesnt even know this guy'ss name? like WHAT? haha oh my imagination. See this is why cinderella ended where it did.
Also now onto Snow White, So, prince kisses snow white, she awakens from her sleep, they get married and live happily ever after. SOOO, what if it didnt end there and lets say.. Snow white moved in with the prince in his mighty fine castle. He would have to build seperate rooms for the dwarves when they want to visit! who needs children when you have 7 dwarves! And, getting married right after he wakes her up? like you dont want to get to know her? Sure she's this princess in all, but really, you only kissed her because you thought she was pretty. I dont get why snow white didnt slap him in the face for pulling out the creeper moves. She probably did that when they wanted to consumate their marriage and heres how that one might have went...
prince: hey baby, lets make this marriage legal by the courts
SW: uhh, no. i only married you to piss off my step mother and now she's dead i have no more use for you
prince : but baby, you're finnnne, you're my princess
SW: i was a princess before i met you, and you're lucky i am not slapping you in the face for pulling a kiss on me while i was asleep, thats one step away from sexual molestation.
prince: WTF? i saved your life
SW: sooo, i'm sure someone would have figured it out eventually, we're not consumating this one. I'm rescued form the forest, i'm back home and my b*tch of a step mother is gone. My life's perfect now. i'm getting an annulment, goodbye.
But we all know snow white was too much of a goody goody for that scene to ever happen after it ends.
But, arent we glad that that one ended where it ended?
Arent we all glad fairytales end when they do. They all live happily ever after and no one (but me) ever questions what happens afterwards, or how come these characters dont really know each other before they get married. It's all love at first sight and happily ever afters. It all gives us that sense of false hope that, there is a "prince" out there waiting for each and every one of us that will sweep us off our feet, we'll get married (or not) and live happily ever after.. Right?We all want to live happily ever after, right? Oh the typical young girl's dream. The relationship with the prince ( WHO SEEM TO NEVER HAVE A NAME, like what if it's all the same prince whose just playing all these girls!!) and the damsel are always so.. "perfect". Then again, they havent known each other for too long, they havent been through much together. They dont go through all the mile stones and bridges to build a strong and healthy relationship, and they dont really have much going on to ruin their perfection. Heck, they dont even know each other's last names or anything!. But we dont question that stuff, you know why?
Because they end before that happens.
They end with no drama , nocontraversy and while all characters are all happy.
Life's not like that. Probably for good reasons too
andddddddddddd WELL, sorry if i killed snow white or cinderella for anyone, those were just acts of my wild imagination.
OH AND PS. yes i've read the grim brother's versians!
but most of them do end "happy" also..
