I'm going to go over here and just -SQUEE- from the adorable story ;A; <3 aaaaaaaaah fairy tales! <3

It totally doesn't help that I've been watching that Man VS Wild on Discovery Channel lately, the 'Survivalist' kinda reminds me of the host of that show XD

Bear Grylls!! That's what I thouhgt looked like him too!! XD I love watching whatever weird thing he puts in his mouth....*on topic now* I loved the art and the storyline, I enjoyed reading it and wished there was more to the story. x3
Oh, this is amazing! I love this story to death.

I really wish we had a Yeti based item though resembling the one in the story. Sno Yeti will not do!

Aww, they are very nice! I might even save them to my own computer!
Siberian Huskies! heart

But it's so typical that it's a female in need and then a male comes for eir rescue stare



But it's a fairy tale.
If that didn't happen, we'd b***h!


It's sooo pretty. I must have one D:


Fairy tales really should change over time. Because if they don't, they don't serve their purpose. Their role as teaching children what they should and should not do, what's right and what's wrong, who has which role and so on.

It may have been the guy rescuing the girl, it was the girl who killed off the evil queen thus being self-sacrificing. This story is already pretty female-enhancing. :3

Also the part where it says: not magic, but first aid! I lolled.

I really like the art in this rig so here you guys go!
User Image
In a frozen land far from any place you have ever been, where night seemed as eternal as the cold, there reigned a queen made of ice. She was cruel and beautiful, her subjects frigid spirits, her servants souls she had taken pity upon and rescued from certain death in the cold.
User Image
The snow queen was vain as well. She enchanted a mirror to show her the fairest woman in the kingdom, and of course, hers was always the face she would see.
User Image
Among the queen's servants, her favorite was a child she had taken from the snow. She was quiet and hard working, and plain, the part that the queen liked most. The girl was called Snow White.
User Image
Years passed, and Snow White grew into a young woman. One day the queen asked her mirror to show her the most beautiful woman in the kingdom... And to her horror, the traitorous mirror did not show her own face, but the likeness of her servant.
User Image
Enraged, she summoned her most powerful minion, the Yeti. She ordered him to take Snow White far out into the wilderness, and return with her frozen heart.
User Image
The Yeti obeyed and lead Snow White far across the ice, into the circle of the world that is only frozen ocean. There, he looked upon her, shivering and cold, and could not bring himself to kill her. He told her to run and hide where the queen could never find her.
User Image
Terrified, Snow White ran and ran until her lungs burned in the cold air and her legs gave out under her. Lying in the snow, she knew she would die if she didn't get up. But her eyelids felt so heavy, and the snow felt almost warm...
User Image
And when she opened them, she WAS warm! Piled around her were seven sled dogs, the same colors as the rocks and ice, almost as if they were born of the land.

User Image
When she asked them who they were, they replied, "We are the workers of the snow and ice. We can run forever and never fall, and despite the long cold night we will never freeze. Stay with us, young one, and we'll teach you the ways of the winter, and make you strong." She gladly agreed. Months passed...

User Image
And Snow White's spirit grew fierce. Even so far beyond the edges of the queen's kingdom, the enchanted mirror could see no one else. The queen knew her minion had betrayed her, and also, looking upon the face of the girl she had condemned to death... She felt a terrible fear.

User Image
She called upon her own ferocious spirit, casting a spell to transform herself into a great white bear. She hid between her claws a sliver of ice from the very top of the world, so cold it froze anything it touched.

User Image
The queen travelled far across the ice, tracking Snow White for many weeks. Finally, they found each other in the wasteland. Snow White could not recognize the queen, and saw only a bear threatening her dogs. She lunged towards the bear even as it charged her, as fearless as she was certain that she would not emerge alive. The queen's heart trembled as she looked upon the girl, and saw her death in those dark eyes.

User Image
The bear faltered, its claws missing Snow White by a breath, and she saw her harpoon's opening, sealing the fate of the beast. As she stood, she suddenly recognized the queen. She felt a sharp pain in her chest, and looking down, she found the shard of ice, lodged in her heart. The familiar beating of her blood stopped cold. Even her breath froze.

User Image
The seven dogs ran to her, but there was nothing they could do. They nipped at her boots and barked for attention, but she would not wake. Overcome with sorrow, they threw their voices to the wind, calling for help that they knew would not come.

User Image
And then, a miracle happened! A survivalist named Les Cannon happened to be filming nearby, and heard the mournful howls. Adventurous and bold, he immediately determined to discover the source.

User Image
Upon arriving, he saw the frozen Snow White, and was moved. He dropped his equipment and labored to revive her. As their lips met, albeit in the breath of resuscitation and not the legendary prince's kiss, the spark thrown off from the clash of their two strong spirits melted the ice in her heart, and it leapt in her chest.

User Image
Together with the seven dogs, Snow White and Les Cannon trekked back through the winterland, intending to alert the frozen kingdom of their liberation from the queen. As the palace grew larger on the horizon, so did the faint warm blush of a long dawn. Day had come at last.

Sorry, but i'm going to have to disagree with you there.

The story proves that Snow White was not a damsel in distress. She lived among wolves in the arctic fer cryin out loud! D; And she wasnt afraid to take on a ******** POLAR BEAR to save her dogs. If it wasnt for the stab to the heart thing and the fact that it was magic, she probably would have been okay. She already proved to me that she can fend for herself, and is therefore, not a typical 'damsel in distress'.

I admist that the survivalist did save her from what she couldnt do. But the relationships that work are equal parterships. She did her best as much as she could, and when she couldn't anymore he helped. That's how healthy relationships are supposed to be wink


On Topic: The artwork is so great. Gaia's artists have really outdone themselves this year! <3
I always love retellings of classic fairytales, and this one is no exception. The artwork and story is that amazing kind of ethereal--perfect for a Gaian Winter's tale.

Serious props to the artists and writers.
