Some of my favorites were "Odd" (Most wonderfully affirming and unexpected twists!) "Match Sticks" (amazing celebration of different kinds of love!), "Satin Skirts and Wooden Shoes" (loved the adoptive-family love!), "Beauty's Beasts" (Actual poly ship, and wonderfully warm/satisfying).
"The Last Lost Boy" also hit me unexpectedly hard, with its reflection on long-lost and found-again friends, love, what you leave and what you take with you into a new chapter of life. (I also blame this one for making me pick up 'Peter Darling' next. Which is good.) I also loved "Dark Matters" for its macabre-and-hilarious twists on Goldilocks and the... three bears. And "The Suns of Terre" could likely be its own science-fiction book or series. I'd certainly read just from this small look into that universe.
Really, there was something wonderful in every story, beyond the ones I've named. Every writer brought a unique perspective and interpretation on familiar tales. There's something so amazing about finally seeing yourself included in stories you've known since childhood, but never really been a part of. I'm so glad this collection exists.
Ok, that might have been a spoiler for one of the stories. Oops. But you catch on pretty quick to the theme once you get going. All of them are pretty delightful. These are worlds where the bad guys are those who hate and try to stomp on people for who they are. Wouldn’t that be nice if that were true in real life, too?
And even though this is a book written by some super Creative Aces–don’t think there isn’t love. There is all kinds of romantic acceptance in this book–just not the sexy stuff we see so much of these days. Every story is full of whimsy and happiness, but also the morals that are the intended purpose of fairy tales, after all. You’ll recognize a lot of them, and maybe find a few new ones along the way. I think my favorite was the one about Matchstick Girl. Come back and let me know your fave, after you read these.
My favorite stories: Expectations, Match Sticks, Beauty's Beasts, Dark Matters.
