This is the first part of my new Fairytales series, a reworking of classic stories in the spirit of this site.
I’ve already planned 16 different takes on fables, but I wanted to start with Cinderella for a number of reasons. The whole idea for this series was born when I looked at a picture I used on this story (the 14th. for those who wanted to know). I thought every story I do on this site has more or less the spirit of Cinderella’s story, and that the time was ripe to do a direct adaptation.
This is probably the lengthiest post I’ve ever made here, and I highly doubt my other Fairytales will be this long (though sometimes I can’t help myself, so who knows). The reason is that I wanted to make a great introduction to the project and also because I had a hard time saying goodbye to this character and the girl who represents her.
By the way: the text is long and thus its small. Clik each caption open in a new tab, so that you can read it in all its HQ glory.
You can surely tell I spent a good deal of time making this, so please comment something. The blog feels very lonely lately.
