    Ye Xian: A Chinese tale of Cinderella 

    Who's ready for some fairy tale history? Although Cinderella is often depicted as European there are many versions of the story from different parts of the world. One of the oldest is Ye Xian, which dates as far back as 850 AD China. In this version of the story rather than a fairy godmother blessing Ye Xian with a gown to wear to the ball it was the spirit of a magical fish which Ye Xian had befriended (before her wicked stepmother, not wanting Ye Xian to have happiness; murdered the fish and served it to Y Xian for dinner!? A bit extreme but ok.) Rather than glass her slippers are made of golden fish scales and her dress is made of kingfisher feathers. 

    I've always been really interested in fairy tales and their origins, but this tale in particular interested me not only because I think it's WAY cooler than the French version (seriously, the magical koi fish is amazing) but also because it shows just how diverse the histories of these stories can be. I knew immediately after reading this story I wanted to draw it however I did NOT want to be that white person who mixes different periods of Chinese culture with no regard to history so I did my research! I focused on clothing and architecture from the Tang Dynasty, as that is when one of the earliest versions was published in China. Clothing in particular during the Tang dynasty was super interesting because there was a lot of use of color and pattern (not pale yellow though, as it was a crime for anyone other than the royal family to wear that color.) I'm sure I didn't get everything right, but tried my best to work it all into an artwork that western audiences would still understand as being "Cinderella."

    I'm planning on creating a full wall calendar that incorporates a number of different fairy tales and incorporates some of their more diverse settings and characters. I'll be sure to share some background info for each of them (like I'm doing with this one.) so if you're interested please follow along and let me know which stories you'd like to see or hear more about.  Sorry this post was so long, but hopefully you've learned something new (and now also want Disney to get off their asses and make a Chinese Cinderella movie please and thank you!)

    ALWAYS LOVING THEMSELVES AS THEY ARE

    Nettle and Jason have been a couple for quite some time and many fairies admire them for their stability; they for their part say that the key to their relationship is simple: "Accept that we are not perfect and that each one has their good things and their not so good things"; simply learn to TOLERATE each other.

    As they both say: "If you accept that neither you nor your partner are perfect, then you learn what is the key to being HAPPY".

    What a LOVELY COUPLE!!

    Lyrics from the song “We’ll Sing In The Sunshine” by Sonny & Cher.

    i feel like Tinkerbell and Terence can learn from each other

    i mean Terence is the opposite of Tinkerbell as the personality type yet they both have learnings to do from each other

    Tinkerbell needs to learn how to do her reality check since it often not only puts herself in danger but also the others sometimes and she also needs to learn how to control her anger since she still gets angry very easily (even if she have learned not to blame others for her mistake for NO reason, when she gets critical feedback she feels attacked and gets all angry over it)

    Terence needs to learn how to loose up a little and balance his work and his friends (i can understand the first Tinkerbell movie they were kind of strangers since they were briefly on speaking terms when Tinkerbell almost left everyone but she stayed because of him but after the 2nd movie they were kind of strangers again and it’s supposed to get forward NOT going backwards and it turned out just like Tinkerbell he’s working TOO hard when i visited the fandom site so it’s kind of a relief i wasn’t crazy he hardly appeared in most movies, only difference is that Tinkerbell DO spend her times with her friends and take her friendship just as much seriously like she do with her work, she sometimes overwork with herself to keep herself busy but i’m sure her other friends can learn her how to take a break for once since Tink is all into inventions and how to make it easier for not only herself but also the others)

    so that all mixed together they can fills each others in and learn from each other with the opposite personality types and balance stuff a little more then they do at this moment

    they both DID once learned something from each others in the 2nd movie named “The Lost Treasure” Tinkerbell kind of had her reality check because of Terence she’s lucky it was only Terence who discovered the truth and was able to cover it up and do all his damage controls FOR her so the others won’t find out about the moonstone and he brought the scepter for her she hasn’t thought of too

    Terence learned from his mistake about giving someone some space so that someone can think rationally about something

    (i don’t say that as just friends but as a couple aswell because it change you when you are dating someone, it can go both ways but i think these 2 have good influences on others too)

    Maybe it's just me but i thought for what Vidia did was wrong in the 1st movie but the others were WAY worse then Vidia so she isn't THAT bad then i thought she was when you compare her with the 3rd Tinkerbell movie

    She mocked about Tink's talent and bullied Tinkerbell by making fun of her which wasn't nice of her to do that and i USED to disliked her for that (as we can see in THIS movie, i feel that she only bullied Tinkerbell out of jealousy because she isn't like how i thought she was gonna turned out to be)

    But the others were WAY worse then Vidia in this movie because they maked fun of Tinkerbell and mocked about Tink's anger issues BEHIND Tink's back while in Vidia's defense Tinkerbell was in danger and i can't blame her for it (Vidia used to make fun of Tinkerbell that maked Tinkerbell go angry and turned red back then so i'm sure Vidia can tell how Tinkerbell was gonna response to this if Tinkerbell SEES others making fun of her by mocking about Tink without them knowing the truth with what had happens, that might explains why Vidia didn't joined the company with others but instead isolated from them and spoke about Tink calmly while tearing up about it by putting herself to blame for what happened to Tinkerbell instead, ironic isn't it? she used to blame Tinkerbell with the troubles when she was just as much in the mess like Tink was in with the sprinting thistles)

    she felt SO insulted and offended about the whole situation when others maked fun of Tinkerbell (I feel that Vidia was the only one who took the whole situation seriously compared to others since all she could think and cared about was how to befree Tinkerbell from the humans and how to make it up to her all of a sudden, i mean Vidia changed in good ways because of Tinkerbell)

    i can imagine Vidia thinking she'll be most likely the only one that will care if Tinkerbell had died or not (much to my surprise since she and Tink weren't on friendly terms with each others back at that time, can you imagine if Tinkerbell had died or was in a REAL danger the others will still mocks about Tinkerbell and makes a joke out of it? while it's a VERY serious thing especially when it puts others in danger, Vidia atleast cares about it and will most likely feel insulted if others talks crap about Tinkerbell and is probably gonna blame herself Tinkerbell is in a REAL danger or worse because of Vidia, hell they weren't on friendly terms untill the end of the 3rd movie)

    She grew to care about Tinkerbell in the 3rd movie and i'm sure she spoke for Tinkerbell when she confessed to others about what had happened to Tinkerbell since she defended her and stood up for her (judging by her face she hardly slept and was so upset about her mistakes for what she did to Tinkerbell she saw how Tinkerbell got suffered in the house before Vidia called for help, ironic and funny she used to let Tinkerbell suffer in the 1st movie so i guess Vidia had changed her minds)

    I think Vidia rather says stuff right infront of Tinkerbell's face if something bothers Vidia about something then to talk behind Tink's back (like she did in the 1st and the 3rd movie by being honest with Tink and speaks for the truth)

    If there IS someone you can count on, it's definitely Vidia to me because she took her responsibilities for her mistakes in the 3rd movie and takes the situation seriously and i forgived her for what she did in the 1st movie since she did the right thing in the 3rd movie when you expected Vidia to runaway from problems which she didn't, she faced it

    In the town of Echo Springs, memories of another life drift through the minds of the town’s residents. These memories are vibrant in their dreams, but in the waking hours, are just snatches of what might have once been. A bright light flashing from one’s palms, the sensation of flying, the smile of a loved one. Maybe you were born here, maybe you moved, but the only thing you’re sure of is that these memories feel just a little bit off. Did you move here four years ago? Five? Here in town, those things don’t matter, because your life is normal — right?
    You go to your job every day, you do everything completely normal, because you live in Echo Springs, a place that feels eerily normal at times. And, once in a while, things in town will remind you of the dreams that you can’t quite put your finger on, and strange things will happen. Someone will listen to you just because you told them to do something. You could have sworn your arm passed through that wall, but you couldn’t repeat the motion, so you wrote it off as your mind messing with you.
    None of it makes sense. And yet, something about Echo Springs not making sense, does make sense. Are we confusing you yet?

    Echo Springs is an appless, multi-fandom RP group set in the fictional town of Echo Springs. But all is not as it seems — behind the scenes, a dark force is pulling the strings. Residents have been dragged from all corners of the multiverse, their memories taken and twisted. They do not remember their real (canon) lives, except in dreams, intense at night but fading in the morning. The residents are just trying to live normal lives, but bodies have started to appear in the woods — and no one is quite sure who they are or how they got there.

    ALWAYS WITH MY “BABIES”

    Nettle also loves climbing the big rocks to contemplate the magnificent panoramic view of the hollow where the fairies live; on the “BIG ROCK” she also finds total PEACE and feels FREE; for her there is nothing more beautiful than the spectacle of nature.

    But unlike other fairies, Nettle NEVER COMES UP ALONE; she always loves to be accompanied by her "little daughters" (the caterpillars) and to hold them and warm them with her body; Since these little animals cannot fly, she carries them up to those high places.

    She can spend several hours up there with her caterpillars having quality time and feeling very blissful.

    Lyrics form the song “Just You” by Sonny & Cher.

    THE PERFECT TEAM!!

    This week Scribble also has to give his story to the inhabitants of Pixie Hollow, for which he also has to prepare his material; Although he is not a storyteller, he is a BOOK TALENTED FAIRY, so he has skills to make summaries and expose topics.

    To this we must add that Scribble has had an UNEXPECTED HELP: SCARLET!!; She is a fan of her friend's stories, so she has offered to give him all the help and support he needs to put together a great mystery story.

    Both meet at Scribble's house to prepare the narrations; if it gets too late, Scarlet stays at his house (she sleeps in his bed and he sleeps on a sofa); but if they finish early, he will drop her off at her house so she doesn't go alone; Scribble is always very polite and attentive to Scarlet.

    Lyrics from  the song “I Got You, Babe” by Sonny & Cher.

    WE’RE SOOOOO TIRED!!

    The work of storytellers is not as easy as it is believed; they do not make up their stories, but rely on legends, lived experiences and history books to support their stories.

    Having to read and investigate the facts entails many SLEEPLESS NIGHTS, as well as many readings, making many summaries and synthesizing what is read in a story to be told to the public; for this reason, on many occasions, poor Tor and Spinner spend many sleepless nights, since they have a week to prepare their stories; So while all the fairies are resting, they are working hard.

    Inevitably, on more than one occasion the FATIGUE has ended up defeating them; but both are responsible; one way or another THEY FULFILL their goal: ENTERTAIN ALL THE FAIRIES WITH GREAT STORIES!!

    Lyrics from the song “I’m So Tired” by The Beatles.

    ALWAYS TINKERING AND FIXING THINGS!!

    Tinkerbell and Periwinkle always visit their "secret place" there in the pond; They always talk about their intimate things, their dreams and their feelings as sisters who love each other.

    Periwinkle usually loves to take a nap there, and always loves to rest on Tink's lap, soon falling asleep. But Tinkerbell is a TINKER FAIRY, and as a fairy saying goes: "A Tinker Fairy is always thinking about what to fix"; so it's very usual to see that while Peri is sleeping soundly, Tink takes out her tools and starts to fix some artifact that needs fixing.

    Tink is very skilled at fixing things, she is always careful NOT TO HURT her sister while doing her repairs, so Peri can continue taking her nap.

    Lyrics from the song “Baby Don’t Go” by Sonny & Cher.

    WHAT A WONDERFUL GARDEN!!

    Everyone knows that Lilly has the MOST EXOTIC, COLORFUL AND BEAUTIFUL garden in all of Pixie Hollow; What they often don't understand is how much it costs to keep it as beautiful as it is.

    Lilly always tells the other garden fairies that having a beautiful garden is very demanding, it requires a lot of time to feed the plants, give them water, fertilizer, keep pests away, prune the leaves, remove the withered parts, cover them from hail, protect them from animals that damage them... and a long etcetera.

    But for Lilly, the most important part is LOVE; If you have plants, it is to LOVE THEM, because they are LIVING beings that need affection, tenderness, dedication and that those who take care of them have RESPONSIBILITY.

    BRAVO, LILLY!!

    Lyrics from the song “Let It Be Me” by Sonny & Cher.
