Mirror Mirror On The Wall

We all have our favorite fairy tales. Some people love Cinderella. They love how the girl who slaves away turns into a glam girl for a night. And in the process finds her prince charming. Some people love Beauty and The Beast where a girl falls in love with a beast. But my favorite fairy tale is none of these. And it is non-traditional. It's a fractured fairy tale. Remember those from the Rocky and Bullwinkle show.

So why do I like this fractured fairy tale? I love how the dwarves see an opportunity and take advantage of it. They see someone who is intending harm to another, and they run with it. But they also see someone who isn't happy with themselves. The story shows how we really do need to see ourselves as beautiful. Otherwise, we are at the mercy of others. And they can take everything away from us.

So what is your favorite fairy tale?
