Question:Random question..... What is your favourite fairy tale, and why??? - Anonymous
Hello, love! Hmm. My favorite fairy tale would probably be The Little Mermaid, but the original version by Hans Christian Anderson. It’s darker than the Disney version, obviously, as she feels pain with every step she takes and (after toying with the idea of killing the prince following his marriage to another woman) eventually commits suicide. The sea foam bit (she turns into it) I liked, but the daughter of the air bit struck me as sort of odd and almost cliche, if that makes sense. Also, I know the origin of the story, which makes it more interesting to me. It was a love letter he wrote for a man he was infatuated with.
