    Disney vs. 7 early fairytales 

    The 1812 version of Snow White is even worse when you consider that the girl was only seven years old in the tale (plus her unconscious body ended up being carted around by the prince until one of his servants accidentally woke her up).  Also, in The Little Mermaid, the mermaid’s unable to speak because she had her tongue cut out >__<

    But I’d love to see faithful adaptations of the original tales.  Especially Bluebeard.  We need a Bluebeard adaptation.

    Actually, the original-original pre-Grimm Brothers’ stories that were passed around Europe via oral tradition are nowhere near as violent as the Grimm’s made them. Cinderella’s stepsisters were never ugly and kept their eyes, Snow White’s mother was not even a villain (instead a group of bandits were), and instead of spending the whole story napping Sleeping Beauty outwitted a dangerous bandit leader, wouldn’t let him sleep with her, and saved herself. 

    The original oral stories were radically changed by the Brothers Grimm to fit their personal and political beliefs. Most notably, they often added in female characters solely for the purpose of making them evil villains and took away most of the heroines’ agency and intelligence. Both brothers belonged to a small fanatical sect of Catholicism that vilified women because of the idea of Original Sin and Wilhelm in particular had a particularly deep hatred of women. The Grimms were actually pretty horrible people. Those cannibalistic queens and ugly stepsisters and the mass amount of violence against women didn’t exist until the Grimms wanted them to. Their ideas stuck so soundly though that we now assume they were in the original tales and that these terrible characters and ideas come out of some perceived barbaric Old World culture. But in truth they’re really the Grimms’ weird obsession with hating women showing through. The original oral folklore focused on the heroes’ and heroines’ good deeds and used them as ways to teach cultural norms and a society’s rules and encouraged girls to be quick-witted and street-savvy instead of passive princesses, and the Grimms promptly stripped that all away. 

    "Grimms Bad Girls and Bold Boys" by Ruth Bottingheimer is an excellent book on this

    I am so happy about this post, you have no idea.

    → Interesting fact: Lucius’ boggart took the form of Lord Voldemort (x x)

     ” Ah poor Lucius…What with Voldemort’s fury about the fact that he threw away the horcrux for his own gain, and the fiasco at the ministry last year. I would not be surprised if he is secretely glad to be safe at Azkaban at the moment”

    I admit I haven’t seen the movie and never EVER will and I don’t remember this from the books, but I believe this is true. Especially in the last few books it really felt like Lucius was terrified of Voldemort. And this might be just my impression, but I thought this especially applies in relation to his family. What Voldemort could do to his son. To all of them, if he screwed up just one more time. And it even came true, in a way, as it is explicitly stated in the 6th book, that Voldemort entrusted the task of getting the DE to Hogwarts to Draco because he didn’t believe Draco would make it. He wanted Draco to fail and then kill him JUST TO MAKE LUCIUS PAY. Of course Lucius was terrified. After the battle of Hogwarts is over and everyone is gathered in the hall, book 7, the Malfoy family is actually quietly cuddling in the corner, silently, peacefully, all by themselves “not sure they even belong there” - but they don’t leave. Because finally, finally they’re free. I felt that moment was very strong.
