While DESPERATELY EVER AFTER has nothing to do with Disney fairy tales (more on that later this week), it does aim to dismiss the Disney-perpetuated notion that fairy tale heroines must be eternally graceful, perfectly poised, and blindly in debt to the men who filter in and out of their lives.
Seriously, if YOU woke up 300 years in the future, covered in dust, with a strange man’s tongue forcing its way down your throat and your home in ruins… do you think you’d swoon or break down in tears?

If it were me, there’d probably be some broken vases as well… and a canister of pepper spray.
