The original mermaid

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

The real little mermaid story, by Hans Christian Anderson, was a little darker than the Disney one. Not only did Ariel not get her prince.The sea witch didn't just steal the her voice she cut out her tongue in exchange for her legs. She gave her the ability to dance so beautifully that it's enchanting but every time she did, every time she walked, every time her feet touched the ground she felt like a thousand knives were cutting into her new feet.
