Marie Sexton lives in Colorado. She’s a fan of just about anything that involves muscular young men piling on top of each other. In particular, she loves the Denver Broncos and enjoys going to the games with her husband. Her imaginary friends often tag along. Marie has one daughter, two cats, and one dog, all of whom seem bent on destroying what remains of her sanity. She loves them anyway.

This was a delightful retelling of a favorite fairytale. The game of fetch played with the prince's dog was a fun spin on the slipper search theme. Very nicely done!

troubling, but excellent.
sexton writes with a light touch here, and it's marvelous.
critically important, also, as there are far too many opportunities for unpleasant implications, like in all the greatest of our culture's fairy tales.
in this case, though, the dark side of the story was plain to see: everything that is everything wrong with being a gay boy in a straight boy's world.
as such, i found myself triggered to fuck and back—weeping my guts out in the last half of it, while a stupid straight prince stupidly fails to figure out the stupid secret while his stupid gay beloved is standing right in front of his stupid face, stupidly.
*crushingly awkward silence*
where was i?
s'good. real good.
and while it didn't turn out so hot for the ladybitch cousin, with whose own triggery tribulations nobody is expected to sympathize, you can rest assured that sexton delivers a happy ending for the rest o'youse as can't be made to cry over the memory of a friend to whom you could never have found a way to say "i love you."
