For homework this week we had to write a fractured fairytale in the perspective of another character in the fairytale! I decided to do Snow white and the Seven Dwarfs. This is it…
I was walking though the deep, dark forest, just doing my job, looking for gold, when suddenly I heard loud footsteps and saw two big shadows! I was scared out of my wits, a drop of sweat slowly trickled down my face and my teeth started chattering. As I peered around the tree, I realised what it was. It was two humans.
I ran back to my little cottage as fast as my little legs could take me. ‘Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Bashful, Happy, Dopey we need to have a team meeting now. Meet by the tree stump and hurry!’ I screamed to my brothers. All of us little dwarfs huddled around the tree stump. I told them everything, how I had found the two humans. They didn’t think anything of it! I was very surprised that they weren’t even scared! I was terrified. Happy and the others reassured me that everything would be fine. We made up a plan, the plan was to act cool. If they came and tried to hurt us in any way, we would run! If anything were to happen to one of us the signal would be a bird call.
Nothing did happen for the rest of the day. We all headed home together. As we got close to the door something didn’t feel right. As I turned the brass doorknob we realised that something wasn’t right! Everything was out of order. ‘Somebody has used my fork!’ Grumpy said very grumpily, ‘Somebody has eaten my bread!’ Said Bashful as he punched his fist. ‘Well somebody has eaten my soup!’ Said Happy, not sounding very happy at all! The rest of the dwarfs kept complaining! Meanwhile I turned around and found someone lying in my bed ASLEEP!!! ‘Guys, there is somebody sleeping in my bed!’ I said in a big fluster. They were all whispering things at me like Calm Down, and Doc, it is going to be fine! But just to let you know they don’t work! The person in the bed was a beautiful girl! Her hair was as dark as ebony, her skin was as white as snow and her lips were as red as blood. We decided to let the gorgeous girl keep sleeping!
After about an hour she jerked and her eyes peered open. ‘What are you doing in our house?’ We all said at once, feeling the power! This beautiful girl introduced herself. Her name was Snow White! She has had a pretty rough day! Her stepmother sent her servant to kill her in the forest, although he couldn’t do it, so he let her go and brought back the heart of a wild boar, instead of Snow White’s.
We had another private meeting and decided to let her stay! We had some negotiating to do though. The deal was that if she stayed in our cottage, she would have to clean the cottage everyday, have our supper prepared for us for when we got home and to sew and knit our clothes. I think that Snow White thought that was pretty fair! She accepted the deal and got to work!
That worked well for about a year! It was an amazing process! We had never felt so lucky to come home after work and have everything done for us! Until one afternoon we came home and found her body, lying dead on our floor! I was in shock. Grumpy got about ten times grumpier! Happy was upset for the first time in about a year! Bashful said that he would punch the living daylights out of the person that did it. Sneezy sneezed about 20 times in dedication of Snow White and Sleepy didn’t sleep all day! It was a disaster!
After about a week we started to lift our spirits a tiny bit. She still looked amazingly gorgeous! Sleepy decided that her body was to beautiful to touch the dirt so we got a glass coffin made! It was almost as pretty as her. It was see through from every side, just so we could see her beauty.
A rather long time after that, a prince came into the forest. Just who does he think he is??? He asked us if he could take the coffin, because apparently he can’t live without it! He didn’t even know Snow White!!! How does he think we feel, she was the best thing that ever happened to us! He didn’t give up and Happy decided that he could take the coffin! Just because he is a happy chappie, doesn’t mean that I am after the Prince takes away the love of my life!
The next day the prince came back with some servants to help take the coffin. One of the servants jerked whilst carrying the coffin and some apple fell out of the Princess’s mouth! She jumped up and started screaming ‘Where am I?’ ‘You are with me, your love! ‘ The prince said.
After many years my brothers and I got invited to the palace for a royal wedding! Snow White and the Prince were getting married. It was a real shame that we didn’t end up together.
It was a happy ending for some, not for all!
See you later
