"On the whole I am inclined to think that a witch should not kiss. Perhaps it is the not being kissed that makes her a witch; perhaps the source of her power is the breath of loneliness around her." - Emma Donoghue

S., 24, Italian. Kate is my internet handle and you can call me that. People scare me so I'll probably never talk to you even if I think you're cool, and if I do it'll be very awkward. English is my second language; I apologize for any mistakes.

I love a lot of things, including fairy tales, mythology, ladies who make music, ladies in general, history, languages. I watch a lot of movies and tv, I ship all the things, and I love Pokémon a lot.

(Enchanted) Objects: the Devil’s mirror from The Snow Queen [2/5]

One day the devil was in a very good humour because he had just finished a mirror which had this peculiar power: everything good and beautiful that was reflected in it seemed to dwindle to almost nothing at all, while everything that was worthless and ugly became most conspicuous and even uglier than ever.

Fairy Tale Dreamcast - The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen

"I can give her no more power than what she has already. "Don’t you see how great it is? Don’t you see how men and animals are forced to serve her; how well she gets through the world barefooted? She must not hear of her power from us; that power lies in her heart, because she is a sweet and innocent child! If she cannot get to the Snow Queen by herself, and rid little Kay of the glass, we cannot help her." (read in full here)

FAIRYTALE MEME: 7 OTPS - [5/7] Gerda/The Robber-Maiden from The Snow Queen
 “’Here are my mother’s huge gloves; they reach up to the elbow; put them on-now your hands look as clumsy as my old mother’s!’ And Gerda shed tears of joy. ’I cannot bear to see you crying!’ said the robber-maiden, “you ought to look glad. See, here are two loaves and a piece of bacon for you, that you may not be hungry on the way.’ She fastened this provender also onto the reindeer’s back, opened the door, called away the great dogs, and then, cutting asunder with her dagger the rope which bound the reindeer, she shouted to him, ‘Now then, run! but take good care of the girl.’ And Gerda stretched out her hands to the robber-maiden and bade her farewell.”

FAIRYTALE MEME: 6 Heroines - [1/6] Gerda from The Snow Queen  “But what happened to little Gerda when Kay did not come back? What had become of him? Nobody knew. The other boys told how they had seen him fasten his sled to a large one which had driven out of the town gate. Gerda cried a great deal. The winter was long and dark to her.  Then the spring came and with it the warm sunshine. ‘I will go and look for Kay,’ said Gerda.  So she went down the river and climbed into a little boat that lay on the bank. Presently the stream began to carry it away.”

Fake Movie Meme → Disney’s The Snow Queen

I can give her no more power than what she has already. Don’t you see how great it is? Don’t you see how men and animals are forced to serve her; how well she gets through the world barefooted? She must not hear of her power from us; that power lies in her heart, because she is a sweet and innocent child! If she cannot get to the Snow Queen by herself, and rid little Kay of the glass, we cannot help her. Two miles hence the garden of the Snow Queen begins; thither you may carry the little girl. Set her down by the large bush with red berries, standing in the snow; don’t stay talking, but hasten back as fast as possible.

4 OTPs/BROTPs- [Gerda and the Robber Girl]

"I can’t bear to see you fretting," said the little robber maiden. "This is just the time when you ought to look pleased. Here are two loaves and a ham for you, so that you won’t starve." The bread and the meat were fastened to the Reindeer’s back; the little maiden opened the door, called in all the dogs, and then with her knife cut the rope that fastened the animal, and said to him, "Now, off with you; but take good care of the little girl!"

FAIRYTALE MEME:8 Heroes - [3/8] Kai from The Snow Queen  “One day Kai and Gerda sat looking at a book full of pictures of animals and birds, and then just as the clock in the church tower struck twelve, Kai said, “Oh, something has struck my heart!” and soon after, “There is something in my eye.” The little girl put her arm round his neck, and looked into his eye, but she could see nothing. “I think it is gone,” he said. But it was not gone; it was one of those bits of the looking-glass, the ugly glass which made everything great and good appear small and ugly, while all that was wicked and bad became more visible, and every little fault could be plainly seen. Poor little Kai had also received a small grain in his heart, which very quickly turned to a lump of ice. He felt no more pain, but the glass was there still.”

Friendly reminder that the Russian animation company, Wizart, made a film called “The Snow Queen” with only a budget of $7 million.

How men and animals are obliged to serve her, and how well she has got through the world, barefooted as she is. She cannot receive any power from me greater than she now has, which consists in her own purity and innocence of heart.”

I’m a big fan of allowing stories to shift and mold in order to embrace other cultures, but I’m also a fan of accurately depicting stories.So, when I was given an assignment in college asking me to illustrate The Snow Queen (long before I knew about Frozen, even), with the rules being that I was NOT ALLOWED to change anything in the text, I read the story and realized that the only description of any of the characters is that Ana is blond.  No description of location or characteristics outside of the fact they ride reindeer.  So I started a series of Children’s book images where The Snow Queen takes place in Mongolia with traditional clothing, and Ana is in fact a blond, lighter skinned Mongolian girl. (strongly based on this http://marielu.org/blond-mongol-girl.jpg)Not sure this entirely fits here, but I can say how disappointed I was when I first saw Ana’s design because of all the places and wonderful locations I personally imagined the story taking when I illustrated it.  Hopefully it shows a way that one can adhere to the idea of a story and still have it not just be about white people.kikidoodle.deviantart.com
