Just finished this! It has been sitting on the drawing board (that is, the desktop,) for a looong time.
I love fairy tales, and I hate them. Basically everything in the original Hans Christian Anderson story irritates me, and yet…it is still beautiful. I’m also really into the Sea Witch, I may want to write about her some day. Blah blah blah sad little mermaid sacrificing herself so the other girl gets the prince blah blah blah SEA WITCH is where its at!
