Hey Princeless followers!

So, this is the most popular post that has ever gone out for Princeless, started by the awesome Mizmlee some time ago.  It’s been over 5,000 notes for a while (which is amazing).  I’ve been looking for a post to drive in new readers/followers, especially now that every issue of Princeless is 99 cents on Comixology and the new series will be starting in a few months.

That said, if you are a fan of Princeless and you want to share it with your followers, please reblog this post and include a word about why you love Princeless and others should give it a shot.

Also, if you’re seeing this for the first time, you can find all of the issues here for 99 cents each on Comixology!

Thank you for your new or continued support and let’s see if we can get this post up to 10,000 notes!

Fierce!

before/after. I gave Nikki a boil perm so she’d have a more ‘natural’ hair style.

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
― Albert Einstein

“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”
― G.K. Chesterton

“Fear isn’t so difficult to understand. After all, weren’t we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It’s just a different wolf.”
― Alfred Hitchcock

“Deeper meaning resides in the fairy tales told to me in my childhood than in the truth that is taught by life.”
― Friedrich von Schiller

I think what a lot of people fail to realize is that fairy tales are about emotional truths. No one reads a fairy tale and thinks that they may literally have to slay an ogre, or steal the golden goose, or wear out seven pairs of iron shoes and dress in a thousand furs to find the prince, but some people criticize them, saying this is unrealistic, this is all there is to the tale. Put a little thought into it. In your life, you may not have to climb mountains to find the home of the north wind, but you might have to ask someone intimidating for help. You may never have to trick the wicked prince into looking into the glass-filled barrel, or the witch into peering into the oven, but you might have to sacrifice someone else’s comfort for your own wellbeing. Your mother might not be wicked, but sometimes you’ll be angry with her. You might not be turned into a Beast, but sometimes it feels like there’s nothing about you worth loving. Fairy tales remind you of that. They remind you that there are troubles and trials, and that this is normal. It is the way of things, and you’ll come through it. (via agreyeyedgirl)

I love this. I’m not even capable of expressing how much.

Snow White
She was white as snow, black as coal, and red as blood or so I’m told… Just an experiment to see how you could make snow white work in a non-Caucasian setting without taking away the whole “white as snow” aspect of her design.  I like to think it worked…

Snow white - with hair as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and skin as black as ebony.
Yup.
