This story is a bit different from the Disney version. There is no fairy godmother or magical carriage, or even a spells that wear off at midnight. She does have a bunch of bird friends?
The ball is a three day fair, but it it's intent is the same, for the prince to find a bride. He is a bit of a creep though, he kept following Cinderella trying to find out where she lived and did things like cut down trees he saw Cinderella climb up so she would have to take a different route the next day.
Get this, the slippers are golden and she didn't drop them on purpose, the prince just put some sticky paste on the stairs to slow her down!
You all know how the story goes on now, right? WRONG! The step sisters MUTILATE parts of their feet in hopes in making it fit the slipper, which obviously didn't work... Also, the birds peck the stepsister's eyes out at the wedding.
No princess here! Just Allerleirauh, who keeps dropping golden things in your soup bowl, because... reasons?
I'm definitely not the beautiful maiden that keeps appearing at you ball events!
I am in no way hiding from my father the King of the other kingdom who wants to marry me... his daughter... Eeeewwww.
The next Fairy Tale is Cinderella!
Why yes, Princess posing as a commoner, I was the guy who broke into your room stole your father's sword, cut a piece of your hankie and nightgown as a souvenir, but that's OK, because I used the sword to kill some giants that were pestering your kingdom.... Marry me? Oh, I also killed your dog.
Let me get this straight, the sword is magical and makes it impossible to lose and nobody thought of using to kill the giants before?
And the princess becomes a commoner to find the guy who broke into her tower and cut up her clothes with the sword he stole?
Also, he kept the "souvenirs" next to giant's tongues.... Eww.
The first damsel in a tower and... she escaped by herself?
Why didn’t I notice sooner it’s Eurovision day? I almost didn’t bother today, oh well, it’s not like today tale was that interesting.
