↳ Characters: the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid (4/7)
In the midst of this spot stood a house, built with the bones of shipwrecked human beings. There sat the sea witch, allowing a toad to eat from her mouth, just as people sometimes feed a canary with a piece of sugar. She called the ugly water-snakes her little chickens, and allowed them to crawl all over her bosom.

Fairy Tales Recast: The Little Mermaid
“But if you take away my voice,” said the little mermaid, “what is left for me?”
“Your beautiful form, your graceful walk, and your expressive eyes; surely with these you can enchain a man’s heart. Well, have you lost your courage? Put out your little tongue that I may cut it off as my payment; then you shall have the powerful draught.”
“It shall be,” said the little mermaid.

The Little Mermaid (Rusalochka, Русалочка) - 1968
And that, my children, is how the story ends. The naive mermaid wanted to become a human, and she did not belong as one. This, ladies and gentleman, is a very sorrowful tale. Sorrowful, yet beautiful, a tale of love that knows no obstacles, of wisdom, and kindness.
Fairy Tale Picspam → The Little Mermaid
The little mermaid lifted her glorified eyes towards the sun, and felt them, for the first time, filling with tears. On the ship, in which she had left the prince, there were life and noise; she saw him and his beautiful bride searching for her; sorrowfully they gazed at the pearly foam, as if they knew she had thrown herself into the waves. Unseen she kissed the forehead of her bride, and fanned the prince, and then mounted with the other children of the air to a rosy cloud that floated through the aether.
The human world, it’s a mess. Life under the sea is better than anything they’ve got up there.
FAIRY TALE MEME ∙ [1/1] Fairy Tale ∙ Den Lille Havfrue (The Little Mermaid) by Hans Christian Andersen
The little mermaid parted the purple curtains of the tent and saw the beautiful bride asleep with her head on the Prince’s breast. The mermaid bent down and kissed his shapely forehead. She looked at the sky, fast reddening for the break of day. She looked at the sharp knife and again turned her eyes toward the Prince, who in his sleep murmured the name of his bride. His thoughts were all for her, and the knife blade trembled in the mermaid’s hand. But then she flung it from her, far out over the waves. Where it fell the waves were red, as if bubbles of blood seethed in the water. With eyes already glazing she looked once more at the Prince, hurled herself over the bulwarks into the sea, and felt her body dissolve in foam.
"Far out in the ocean the water is as blue as the petals of the loveliest cornflower, and as clear as the purest glass. But it is very deep too. It goes down deeper than any anchor rope will go, and many, many steeples would have to be stacked one on top of another to reach from the bottom to the surface of the sea. It is down there that the sea folk live."
Malá Morská Víla // The Little Mermaid (Miroslava Šafránková - 1976)
Fun fact: Miroslava Šafránková who played the title role in The Little Mermaid (“Malá mořská víla”, Czechoslovakia, 1976) is a younger sister of Libuše Šafránková aka Cinderella from Three Wishes for Cinderella (“Tři oříšky pro Popelku”, Czechoslovakia, 1973). The Little Mermaid film took advantage of their similar appearance and Libuše Šafránková plays the foreign princess the prince marries in the end.

“Nothing gave the youngest Princess greater pleasure than to hear about the world of human beings up above. She made her grandmother tell all she knew about ships and towns, people and animals; but what fascinated her beyond words was that the flowers on earth were scented, while those at the bottom of the sea were not, that the woods were green and that the fishes one saw among the branches could sing so loudly and sweetly that it was a delight to hear them.”
