Despite Silver Threading’s insistence that she would be gone this week and, as such, we would not have an official Writer’s Quote Wednesday for November 4th, here we are! Ronovan, the sneaky snook, has managed to take over the asylum for now. So check out the official Writer’s Quote Wednesday kick off post and Ronovan’s great quote here.
Welcome, welcome all my friends to the weekly quotes that never end…Although they are paused for several days at a time, sorry, the more I write the more I rhyme.
So this week I want to talk to about fairy tales. Not the typical Happily Ever After thing that most people talk about now. That’s the end, the ‘ride off into the sunset’ moment that only comes after all the other ups and downs. I want to look at the rest of it. Fairy Tales are told for the happy ending, after all.
Throughout the entire fairy tale, whichever one it is, we find hidden meanings laced into the world of the story. Beauty is just skin deep, unless it’s not. Sometimes a prince has no manners and a beast is more princely. Sometimes, in order to feel lovable you must first find love. The list goes on and on, like the gingerbread and peppermint lane you must not eat. Finally, the end. The finale, the happily ever after…
This is where we are, my friends…knowledge is power, the most powerful thing. Beauty loves Beast and that knowledge turns him back into a man. Charming finds Cinderella and it is his knowing, and loving her, despite her servant status that turns her into the princess again.
So remember, as you go about your week, that knowing is half the battle. Believing is the other half. When you put knowledge and belief together, you get one heck of a plot line.
