Curse of the Frog Prince: Part 1” by Madam Crystal Butterfly is a retelling of the timeless tale of the frog prince. In this re-envisioned version of the classic Brothers Grimm fable, the author puts an exciting new spin on the story of a princess who encounters a frog prince when she loses a gold ball.” THIS STORY IS FOR OLDER TEENS AND ADULTS
This is one of my most favorite parts of my story. In too many frog prince renditions there is no reaction to the frog talking as abnormal. Even when talking animals are not the norm within the story. I wanted my princess to have a real world reaction to a talking frog. Not to just do something different. But to also make it so that my story feels more real. And the does not feel like they are just accepting something just to get through the story.
In this seen the main character has no major cards to get her way. Logically in this situation the main character needs a deus ex machina to help them out. However Princess Akinyi does not have that kind of luck. Her only option is to go to extremes no one of her social status in her situation would be expected to. In order to get something she wants. I mostly did this so the reader can put standard expectations of how situations like this out of their minds. And have more fun reading the story unchained with the expected fairy tail formula.
In this story I wanted to show that Princess Akinyi is not a damsel in distress. She instead is placing herself in an obvious less than great situation in order to protect her people and find a way to get an advantage over her foe.
