Cinderella: Post Wedding Days

My friend Sondi's blog is full of brain-tickling comments on life and love; the latter could particulary be attributed to his neverending search of a soulmate, or so he says. Well, I can only feel sorry for him hehehehe... Anyway, I love some of his progressive though not necessarily nouveau ideas, like when he decides to refer God as a "She", emphasizing that it will only serve humankind and MEN well, as men or at least the Masculine Entity will not be forever blamed for poverty, disease and war that still exist -- in contrast with the Feminine Entity which is always associated with peace, tenderness, and so forth. (Gosh, this is frustrating. Where do I stand? I've started to feel like a frog). By the way, does this long sentence give you nausea? It does to me :P.

His recent posting begins with a very beautiful princess who seems to have everything, from great castle, lovely children and good husband, until she finds out that the prince is having an affair with another woman, so the princess tries to get even by trying to seduce a long forgotten love of hers. OK, so he is actually writing something about marriage in general, but I'm way more interested in what happens to Cinderella AFTER her dreamy wedding day.

I've been having this storyline of Cinderella's post wedding days in my head. Cinderella has been growing bored with the Prince Charming, who turns out to be a lazy, spoiled, full-of-himself, immature dude protected by Papa King. Cinderella dreams about her past, enslaved times, when she had to get up at dawn and sleep very late, servicing insatiable step family members, whom somehow she now misses very much. They might act like tyrants, unbelievably demanding, but they were lively and high-spirited. Their presence is so strong compared to the cold, well mannered, and stiff-faced palace's staff. Their constant yellings, so annoying in the past, are what she's craving for at the moment. The small and dirty attic feels more refreshing than this spacious bedroom, so large it can accommodate twenty more people. But so soulless at the same time.

The most disappointing thing apparently is the Prince Charming himself. Cinderella cannot stop the thought that she -- along with thousands of women all over the country, and perhaps from neighbouring lands as well -- was entrapped in carefully crafted public image of the Prince. The poor bloke has nothing beyond his look, which after a few months is not even charming anymore. And despite his beautiful body -- the only temple he religiously cares for and about -- his performance in bed is blah; Cinderella would rather use her imagination and fingers.

This plot can develop into a more provocative scenario, such as Cinderella eyeing the handsome gardener (think "Desperate Housewives"). Or, worse, falling for the charismatic King, her father-in-law. After all, Cinderella lost her dad when she was still a baby, it is understandable that she looks for some father figure. Oooh... I already have a handful stock of kinky stories!

Sondi -- being a man, of course -- prefers to get the Prince Charming cheating on Cinderella first. In retaliation Cinderella will try to seduce her ex-lover (which could be the gardener, of course), and ends up being so attached to this lover, who fulfills her ego and desire.

The step family will keep a close watch on her; they still can't get over their fury on her luck. And they are formulating a wicked plan to get back on her, to make her regret her decision to accept Fairy Godmother's generous offer.

Hm, I'd better start considering the prospect of being a scriptwriter. This one surely is good material for soaps or sinetrons.

hm, this is interesting. I never really actually think, or being curious, or even wanna know, of what happened after "... and they live happily ever after" line.

Maybe cos I have such tendency for happy endings. :)

And no, u have no talent for sinetrons. They don't take GOOD story. ;)

" Cinderella " asli itu masih sangat dibutuhkan oleh banyak pasangan di Indo , pasalnya sdh terlalu banyak "pangeran " yg cari "Queen" , bukan cari "puteri "
Dunia sudah makin tua , kali ya ?
