So what fairytale character would you be if you had the chance and why? Am not sure I would actually want to be Cinderella (though I am a dab hand at doing the housework!). I think I would actually prefer to be the fairy godmother. Going around trying to make someone else's life better would suit me I think. Certainly it appeals far more than having to put up with the wicked stepmother and ugly sisters for so long!
If there was a fairytale you could change, which would it be and why? I would prefer a much happier ending to The Little Match Girl and The Little Mermaid but can see why the endings are the way they are. (Much stronger impact, Hans Christen Andersen wanted to get a serious point about the evils of poverty across and so on).
Overall, I am glad I don't live in the fairytale world. For every happy ever after, there is an awful lot of unhappiness and ill treatment before it. Whilst that is true for life on Earth, we at least know we don't have magic, which might improve things. In the fairytale world, that excuse is not there. I guess it proves even with magic, life is not perfect.
