The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.
The artwork is too great not to reblog.
Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.
That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.
One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Han Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.

Stanley can’t eat gluten or dairy SO I GUESS GRILLED CHEESE IS A NO GO HOW DOES HE LIVE
I came home today to my mom and Stanley talking in the kitchen about theater. I guess I never thought about how unstable Broadway is…. He was saying how shows can go up one night and close the next because of bad reviews or lack of funding. I also heard a lot about Rae Dawn Chong on Broadway.
It’s just so interesting how he just casually knows so many famous people and it’s like he’s literally been in The Book of Mormon on Broadway and now driving him around a small town (which seems suddenly so rural compared to New York) no one recognizes him or anything.
Also he sang along to One Direction in the car the other day.
Also he drinks QUINOA MILK????
