Take it away, Danya!
It's confession time: I am kind of obsessed with the TV show Once Upon A Time. If you are a fairy tale fan (who's not a purist!) then you'll probably love it too. And since Once Upon A Time is all about connecting different fairy tales and their characters together, I thought I'd do my own mash-ups today!
So basically, if the following pairs of characters were friends, this is what might happen...
Five Success Stories
Just think about it. Every time she lost a gold bauble in a pond, he could make her a new one with a single touch! No kissing of amphibious creatures required.
2.) Goldilocks and The Three Little Pigs
Because Goldilocks would be able to tell which house was "just right" without any huffing or puffing from a wolf.
3.) Cinderella and The Twelve Dancing Princesses
If any girl knows how to lose an article of footwear, it's Cinderella. And if any girls desperately need to, it's the Twelve Dancing Princesses.
4.) Sleeping Beauty and the princess from The Princess & The Pea
I'm sure with all the tossing and turning the overly sensitive princess would have done, Sleeping Beauty would have woken up a whole lot sooner. Who needs a prince when there's an insomniac nearby?
5.) Rumpelstiltskin and The Pied Piper of Hamelin
Just imagine how many first-born children Rumpelstiltskin could get out of the whole population of Hamelin! And of course, he could pay the Pied Piper handsomely in gold... This could be the start of a
Five Colossal Failures
You don't need to be a prince to climb up Rapunzel's long rope of hair...but you do need to have hands. Rapunzel's going to be there for a loooooooooong time.
2.) The Emperor from The Emperor's New Clothes and The Red Shoes
The only thing worse than striding through the streets buck-naked is, well, dancing through the streets wearing nothing but a pair of red shoes.
3.) King Midas and the characters from The Golden Goose
Can you imagine? As soon as Midas joined the parade of people stuck together, they'd all turn to gold. #fairytaleFAIL
4.) The mirrors from The Snow Queen and Snow White
One of them magnifies the ugliness in whatever is before them, the other shows the fairest in the land. I can only imagine they'd be in perpetual disagreement!
5.) The princes from Snow White and Sleeping Beauty
I can picture it now: "I get to kiss her awake!" "No, me first!" "I'm her true love!" "Says who?" *both men begin a duel to the death and the poor sleeping girls remain enchanted*
What highly successful or terribly catastrophic fairy tale pairings can you think of?
