Heading into FTF, my initial thought was to just suspend Friday Face Off for the time being. It was just one more post, and I was afraid it'd get lost in all the mayhem anyway. But then I thought, well, might as well do it and just use fairy tale book covers. And I was going to. I was going to, but then I thought, well, maybe some fairy tale characters could throw down...
So today, we've got a couple of princess-types from similar backgrounds facing off: Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. Sure, they're both known for their beauty (I mean, the stories revolve around it...), and they've both been in enchanted sleeps, to be woken by a (creepy, imo) kiss. They've both had their time in the Disney spotlight (repeatedly), and if you go to their origins, they've both had some serious cray to overcome (what with one being abused by her mother, who wants to eat her heart, and the other being raped in her enchanted sleep by a man whose mother wants to eat her children, so... yay, cannibalism, I guess). But for all their similarities, I don't think you'd confuse one for the other.
But who would win in a Face Off? The criteria's up to you: coolest, best adaptations, best original story, who'd win in a literal fight - totally up to you. Let me know in the comments who you're voting for & why, 'cause I wanna know:
Who's the better passed-out princess?*
*Don't take this to a creepy place, you know what I mean.
Last Week on FFO: The US and UK versions of Maggie Stiefvater's The Scorpio Races went (horse) head to head, and though it was a tight race (with some write-in votes for the US paperback, which, omg yes!), the US ended up managing to barely snag the win.
