Six Fairy Tales for the Modern Woman

I.

Once upon a time a woman never got married, but had many fulfilling relationships, a job that kept her comfortable, an apartment that she got to decorate just for her, and hobbies that stimulated her mind.

The End.

II. 

Once upon a time a woman and a man tried having babies, but it didn't work, so when they were past the age of trying, they decided that they had enough disposable income to travel the world, and so they did, and it was awesome, and both of them felt okay about it, and no one gave them any grief over it, either.

The End.

III.

Once upon a time a woman was approached by a drunk guy in a dark alley, but he was very polite, and explained that he had driven to the bar, but because he was responsible, he didn't want to drive home, but his cell phone was dead, so he asked the lady to call him a cab. She did, and he was grateful, and they said pleasant goodbyes before going their separate ways.

The End.

IV.

Once upon a time a woman was very good at her job, and she knew she had added value to the company she worked for, so even though she was nervous, she talked to her boss, and asked for a raise, and she got it.

The End.

V.

Once upon a time a woman grew up in a land-locked state, and continued to live there because she had married her high school sweetheart, and his job was tied to the area, and she wanted to stay close to her parents, but she had always wished she had learned to surf. So when she turned 65 she used some of the money from her savings account, took her first ever solo vacation to the coast, and took a week's worth of surfing lessons, and had a very nice time.

The End.

VI.

Once upon a time a young girl grew up reading magazines about beauty products and consequently felt very self-conscious about her acne. She tried a bunch of treatments that had varying degrees of success, and never left the house without a full face of makeup. She started using anti-aging products when she was 20, thinking that prevention would work better than a cure. But when she turned 30 she still had acne that she had hoped to outgrow, but somehow it just didn't seem to matter as much. She would sometimes run errands without any makeup at all. And despite the preventative care she had tried to do in her early twenties, she started developing some wrinkles on her forehead in her late twenties. But again, somehow, it just didn't seem to bother her as much as the prospect had when she was younger. When she was in her forties her skin had continued to wrinkle, but she cared even less, and was pleased to see that the wrinkles around her eyes made it look like she smiled a lot, which made her smile more, and she cared even less, and she only wore makeup when she wanted to, and never felt obligated to do so. When she was 80 her skin was thinner and delicate, but reminded her of really beautiful tissue paper, and she was happier, and felt more confident as a person than she ever had.

The End.

I love these stories. Especially the last one.

VII. Once upon a time, a girl grew up in a conservative state and religion, where she was told time and again women should be servile toward their husbands and that of course all women want husbands. But soon she found out she'd rather not - on both fronts - and went her own reportedly sinful way, falling in love with other women instead. She found a perfectly nice woman in this conservative-but-beautiful state, fell in love, moved in with and started planning a union ceremony with her, and no one gave them any grief. They have a dog who is also cool.

The End.

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose Again! Tell it again!

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose It wasn't very believable til you mentioned the dog.

Count Chocula

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose Hooray! The "no one giving them any grief" is the best part. Really, all of these could be condensed into: "Once upon a time, there was a woman and no one gave her any grief about the way she chose to live her life. The end."

Daisy Razor

#6 is me! I mean, I'm not 80 yet, but my acne and wrinkles just don't bother me anymore for some reason. It's glorious.

Bittersweet

@Daisy Razor Please tell me your secret. My cystic acne has flared up again after umpteen years, and it is ugly, painful, and embarrassing, especially because I have to meet with consulting clients all the time. I get bummed out about it, and then I feel horrible for being so vain. I'm fairly wrinkle-free but would be happy to trade the acne for a few crow's feet.

bowtiesarecool

@Bittersweet You and me both. You are not alone!

Daisy Razor

@Bittersweet Aw, man, I tried to think of the secret as I was typing up the comment, but I really have no idea why I stopped caring! Part of it may have been looking at my older sister and my mother and seeing how great they still look (in my opinion, anyway!) and part of it might have come giving birth in a teaching hospital. After having a kid while a dozen med students stared at my crotch, any pretense of vanity was pretty much gone.

Cystic acne is a monster, though. I totally understand why you hate it.

:Cinnamon Girl:

@Daisy Razor Have you tried diferin gel? My face was a mess until I started using it. It's gentler than Retin A for my sensitive skin, and prevents acne better somehow as well (probably bc there's less irritation). I can't afford it in the US (100+ bucks per tube) so I buy it online at an indian pharmacy. Totally legit, never had any problems, and I get lots of prescriptions through them... In fact, it was recommended to me by a fellow hairpinner! alldaychemist dot com

Oh, squiggles

@:Cinnamon Girl: I'm tempted to try ordering from them, but I was wondering how you chose to pay since they don't take credit cards. I was thinking about going with the echeck, but I'm not sure how safe it is to give out my account info :-/

Icare

@Bittersweet I know you were talking to Daisy but if I may; my secret to not caring about the wrinkles is Life. Life starts happening and before you know it you have a bounty before you of other things, more important things, captivating things, engaging things and they push the thought of wrinkles further and further away...

Allison Collins@facebook

@Daisy Razor This is my experience, so YMMV. Eating gluten = cystic acne (among numerous other symptoms), especially all along my jawline and chin. Abstaining = mostly clear skin. It's even better if I stay off dairy (my oily skin becomes beautiful and normal), but I'm SO not ready to give up cheese. And ice cream. Anyway, it's worth a try. FWIW, I'm almost 42.

Bittersweet

@Icare I'd trade my acne for wrinkles in a second. No one looks twice at wrinkles, but they do tend to stare at giant red bumps on your chin.

Aphrodite

@Bittersweet What worked for me: keeping my fingernails super duper short, no exceptions. The second they start to grow out, my face breaks out BAD. Fingernails harbor bacteria, and I guess maybe I touch my face a lot without realizing? Not sure, but there's inarguable cause and effect in my case. Sigh.

asmileisfree

@Bittersweet Here's my secret: I cut out dairy and my cystic acne cleared up significantly. And then I cut out processed foods and started eating more greens and foods my great great grandmother would recognize. My acne is virtually non existent. I also eat mostly organic produce and don't eat much meat. I am serious about my skin and have found that eating whole foods makes a huge difference! I remember those days of huge red painful bumps. I would rather never eat cheese again than have them return.

Bittersweet

@asmileisfree Thanks for the tip. I've heard that people have had good luck getting rid of acne by cutting out dairy. I don't really eat a ton of dairy, and yet I'm not ready to give it up. That may change at some point soon. I've just been prescribed Accutane by my derm - we'll see how that goes.

@Bittersweet

I created an account just to reply to you. I don't guarantee that this will work for you but it is the only thing that has worked for my cystic acne ( I am 39 btw). I use the products from acne.org--mainly the benzoil peroxide treatment gel. I found that I don't have to use the cleanser or lotion because it doesn't suit my over dry skin type. But the BP gel along with a alpha hydroxy lotion has virtually removed 99.9% of my cystic acne--however I am now noticing my wrinkle more...:) But I am still over the moon after struggling for 10 years.
Anyway, I think it is so worth trying. There is lots of info (maybe too much) on the site. But take a look at "The Regimen." FYI- The site doesn't try to sell you their products. It recommends other products that you can try but I found that their product does the job for me.

Ahhhhh there it is. Love these!

iceberg

@iceberg Once upon a time, a woman and a man had three beautiful babies all at once. The beautiful babies produced many disgusting and smelly diapers, until the woman felt as though she spent every day literally wrist deep in piss and shit. The man and the woman tried several times to teach the beautiful babies to use potties instead of just going in their diapers, but the babies did not understand, and their house was covered in puddles of urine. The woman and the man gave up for a little while. Then one day they decided to just teach one of the beautiful babies at a time. The quietest baby grasped the concept very quickly this time, delightedly accepting brightly colored sugary rewards every time she peed in the potty instead of in her underwear or on the floor.
The man and woman rejoiced, for they could now see a light at the end of the tunnel (which was made of horribly soiled cloth diapers).

EpWs

@iceberg YAY the Quiet One! Good job!

OhMarie

@iceberg Yay quiet one!!! How long until the other two kiddos get just mind-bendingly jealous enough to learn themselves?

packedsuitcase

@iceberg Go quiet one! Go iceberg and Mr. iceberg!

EpWs

@OhMarie Seriously, this is brilliant.

iceberg

@OhMarie Aww yeah! We only started this past weekend, so she's still wearing diapers for nap and night time, but seriously she's doing so freaking awesome I'm completely chuffed. and we're going to start the Diva on it ASAP as she's already interested in the undies (and the fruit loops, not gonna lie). The Clown couldn't give a fuck, so he may take a little longer to get there, but just knowing it's in the near future feels so good!

EpWs

@iceberg I love that Diva is in it for the threads.

laurel

@iceberg Think about the end of the diaper budget. T h i n k a b o u t i t.

EpWs

@laurel They're spending it all on fruit loops.

once upon a time a woman met a lovely man on the internet, and they were a good nerdy match for each other. they both knew they never wanted to have children, but instead had two cats in their city apartment, and were quite content.

now you! you tell one!

bevrockin

@karenb Oh gosh, you stole mine! But mine ends with "Later, they also got a dog and bought a little house."

@bevrockin awwww

Atheist Watermelon

@karenb this is my idea of the perfect fairy tale :-)

Judith Slutler

Once there were a man and a woman who got married and had a baby. But they realized that their marriage just wasn't working out, so they got divorced. They worked very hard to co-parent their child even when they didn't exactly agree on every little decision, but they made sure that their child had a good and happy childhood and got to spend time with each of them. Neither of them ever badmouthed the other in front of the child, even when things were difficult. They attended their child's college graduation together, along with each of their new partners, and made civil, polite conversation over glasses of champagne, and proposed a toast to each other and their wonderful offspring. The end.

karenb

@Judith Slutler A+ especially lovely, as their child got to have an expanded family, full of people who cared for each other.

fondue with cheddar

@Judith Slutler Once there were a man and a woman who had two kids. They slowly fell out of love with each other but still respected each other and never fought. They went on one last family vacation (the most memorable of all vacations), and later that summer they told the kids they were separating. The man and woman both lived under the same roof for a couple months, and then the woman got her own apartment in the same town. The apartment was very nice, and the kids stayed with her every other weekend, but they also each had one day a week where they were alone with her without their sibling, which was good. The woman brought the family cat with her, which helped the kids feel at home there, but also helped the woman feel less alone when her kids weren't there. For the first year of their separation the whole family celebrated holidays together to ease the transition, and there was no weirdness. The man's family still loved the woman and often asked about her, and the woman's family did the same. As the children grew, the man and the woman continued to be civil to each other at family events, even kissing and hugging each other hello and goodbye as was customary in the family. (This is my real life story! Best divorce ever.)

Heat Signature

Once upon a time, there was a woman who made choices based solely on what she thought would be best for her and not based on societal pressures or what others might think, and she found this made her happiest of all.

The End (or just the beginning?????)

happy go lucky scamp

@Heat Signature there was a woman who came to the conclusion that spending time around her extended family made her incredibly anxious and socially awkward because although she was happy with her decision to not get married and not have children there was always a weight of expectation. Her decision to only see family on important occasions was accepted and she was applauded for putting her own mental health ahead of family expectations.

Quinn A@twitter

...yeah, if I still have acne when I turn thirty next year, it is going to bother me. Less because of how it looks and more because acne hurts, but it's definitely going to bother me. :/

On the bright side, I do have a story similar to I'm Right on Top of That, Rose's, so that part's nice.

meetapossum

@Quinn A@twitter My cousin just turned 30 and has always had bad acne. She's been using the Clinique line for acne recently, and it's worked really well for her.

Slutface

Once upon a time, a woman in her early thirties ate her salad and read her book in the lunchroom and no one teased her about her salad or made fun of her for "being good" all the time.

robotosaur

@Slutface Preach.

yrouttasight

@Slutface Because salad is delicious.

KeLynn

@Slutface - This is clearly fiction.

Bebe

@Slutface But, did she laugh while eating her salad? I must know!

mannequinhands

@Slutface I am SO TIRED of being judged for lunch choices. Sometimes I want a bowl full of chickpeas, sometimes I want a Lean Cuisine.

Spaghettius!

@mannequinhands Right now, the main thing motivating me to bring lunch to work is the fact that what I bring totally beats out (almost) anything anyone can buy around here. So when people walk by and remark on how good my food looks while holding their Subway bags, it motivates me not to go (more) broke buying lunch.
However, if left unsupervised, I would easily eat a bowl o chickpeas or something much less sociall acceptable (jar o kimchi?). If you worked here I would be like "Bowl of chickpeas? Nice!"

Nadia@twitter

These are just lovely

area@twitter

Once upon a time, there was a woman who really, really wanted a hot dog, so she went out and bought one and ate it. And it was so delicious, she bought another one and ate it, and then she drank a cold lemonade and licked her lips and walked down the sidewalk, smiling.

commanderbanana

@area@twitter And no one made snarky comments about how many hot dogs she ate, and it never occurred to her to check her reflection in the mirror or to mentally tot up how many minutes she'd clocked at the gym beforehand.

Scandyhoovian

@area@twitter Man, that sounds like a Thing I Should Do After Work.

adorable-eggplant

@area@twitter OH I thought you meant just plain dog, and I was going to say, "Awesome! It's not a fairy tale unless it's sinister." But hot dogs are nice, too.

area@twitter

@commanderbanana Once upon a time, there were two women who had to share a table at a crowded food court. One woman ate a double cheeseburger with fries, and the other woman ate a salad with lite dressing. They each remarked briefly on how good the other persons meal looked, then sat happily together, enjoying every bite of their food and talking about Ryan Gosling.

whizz_dumb

@area@twitter ...and a voyeuristic Chicagoan nearby didn't even admonish her use of ketchup, even though he wanted to.

Once upon a time, there was a young woman who liked to sleep around. She had many positive and consensual sexual experiences, and lots of supportive and like minded friends. Most of her partners were fun and respectful. Although she had several pregnancy and STI scares, her health care providers were lovely and never shamed her. She formed many healthy and mutually beneficial relationships, stayed in touch with several sex partners who are now good friends, and later married a gentleman she fucked on the first date.

packedsuitcase

@hallelujah I love this story a whole, whole lot.

meetapossum

@hallelujah Favorite.

Cat named Virtute

@hallelujah Once upon a time there was a young woman who was in her twenties when she figured out she was queer and started having sex for the first time and no one made her feel weird or prudish or childish. Her doctor never made assumptions about her sexuality and sexual experience and provided her with excellent, well-informed care. Eventually she had a relationship with a nice lady and never felt awkward or shameful for taking a long time to work out what she wanted sexually. Her friends were a mix of celibate, monogamous, polyamorous, and slutty, and everyone respected one another's choices and enjoyed their own.

Slapfight

@hallelujah Hallelujah indeed!

Blue skies

@hallelujah Once upon a time there was a young woman in her twenties who had never had sex. She had many friends who had had sex and many friends who had not, and they all liked their different styles of living and nobody was mean to anyone about any of it. One day the young woman met a nice person and no one asked her if they were having sex yet. It is her business because she likes it to be that way and all of her very nice friends live their lives as they like them to be as well.

Deedledee

@hallelujah best ever!

Lopsy

@hallelujah Bloody genius!

TefExpat

@hallelujah Once upon a time a woman "expressed her sexuality" and was able to become a fully actualized human being via many types of sexual encounters with many men in series and sometimes simultaneously. When she decided to take a husband, she explained to each candidate that the super-easy-to-acquire sex with dozens of other men helped shape who she is today. Upon hearing this wonderful news, each man, despite having no more than five prior partners each as very few men can be so promiscuous even if they wanted to, all lined up to ask for her hand in marriage.

Scandyhoovian

God, these make me smile and feel all happy inside. Like an unexpected cupcake.

bowtiesarecool

@Scandyhoovian "Unexpected cupcake" = best new band name.

@Scandyhoovian I know, I am all of a sudden blissed out calm. And now after your comment I'm totally getting a pastry too. This is a good day.

Once upon a time, a woman with an office job started running and learned that she liked it very much. Then she ran a 5k, and even a half marathon, and no one asked her if she had lost weight, or told her that she didn't need to run because she didn't need to lose weight. The End.

packedsuitcase

Once upon a time there was a woman who felt trapped in a life that didn't reflect her at all. So she made up her mind to change it and changed her definition of success so it was about being really good at what mattered to her and she let go of body hate and external pressure and money as the be-all, end-all of life and she lived happily ever after with lots of loved ones and brownies.

adorable-eggplant

@packedsuitcase Perfect!

Judith Slutler

@packedsuitcase awwwww

flimflannery

@packedsuitcase yes to brownies.

packedsuitcase

@flimflannery I mean, I personally believe that my life would be worthless without brownies. Unless it's just because I made the brownie batter to eat, had some spoonfuls while watching Netflix, and got rid of the rest.

adorable-eggplant

As far as the second fairy tale, I know of an old couple that retired and traveled the world collecting rare rocks and donating them to a university. #dreamsdocometrue

Once upon a time there was a woman who realized that it is okay to stay home by herself at night and watch movies and bake cookies and do this even on the weekends if she wants to.

large__marge

Once upon a time, there was a young woman and a slightly-older man, who dated for awhile, but had a really horrific breakup. She moved away to a new city, grad school and a large pool of online-dating prospects, and told him she never wanted to hear from him again. He respected that wish and took time to work on his own demons. The end.

Beetroot Patty

Once upon a time a girl read fairy tale number two and didn't feel bad about feeling like that is something she hopes happens to her. The end.

Roxanne Rholes

@Beetroot Patty Yuuuuuuup. I hear you! And yesterday my elderly male boss told me that he knows I am lying to myself, and what I really want is lots of babies. And then when I told a coworker what he said, she said "don't joke about that, or you won't be able to have children!" ...what.

Judith Slutler

Once upon a time, there were some people whose gender wasn't always obvious to other people who'd just met them for the first time. So the people they met simply asked what pronoun they preferred when the question seemed appropriate, and occasionally complimented them on that awesome asymmetrical haircut or that cute pinstriped vest. Sometimes small children would seem a bit confused upon meeting these people, but parents would simply explain "Honey, not everyone has to be a boy or a girl, everyone can dress however they like, and nobody has to explain themselves to others right away." This made perfect sense and shocked absolutely nobody. The End.

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher The comment section on here is normally a class act, but you all are beyond amazing today! This lurker has tears in her eyes.

pollypeachum

Once upon a time a woman who had graduated into an incredibly poor job market went to her cousin's wedding. When people asked her what she did for a living she said "freelance writing" (which was true) and they were content with that and didn't say to her "yeah, but what do you do for money" or compare her to her cousin who was the same age as her but had a slightly higher paying job but was otherwise The Worst Person Ever and everything was good and the freelance writer totally didn't take down notes about sad relatives for use in a future novel.
THE END.

pollypeachum

@pollypeachum Also nobody bothered her about not being like the author cousin her age, who was already married and had four kids and nobody made any gross comments about how she should be quick about these things, as her eggs were drying up.

flimflannery

Once Upon A Time a girl went to school and worked very hard for seven years and then got a job that was interesting and fufilling. She had an amazing group of friends and family who filled her life with joy and support, she got to travel and do interesting things. And no one made her feel weird and defective for not having a boyfriend.

whatsherface

Once upon a time a single woman lost her job just days before her 30th birthday. She took an appropriate amount of time to feel sorry for herself before saying "Screw it all!" and moving to South America. 8 months later she still doesn't speak Spanish very well but she has a great paying job, a lovely group of friends and very much enjoys living in this new country. Oh, and she also met an awesome man who tells her how amazing she is every day. The end.

adorable-eggplant

@whatsherface Tell me this is true!!

whatsherface

@adorable-eggplant Very true! Best decision I ever made.

adorable-eggplant

@whatsherface Whelp, add one more scenario to the old dream box. Congrats on taking the leap!

whatsherface

@adorable-eggplant Thank you! I highly recommend it. I should also add that there is more wine drinking than probably appropriate but that just comes with living in a country with cheap and excellent wine.

grizzle_bees

@whatsherface <3 <3!! I am also losing my job right before my 30th birthday. Maybe I'll join you?

ThatWench

@whatsherface
Ooooooh, yay!!! What do you do there? I've always dreamed of "move to other country for period of time, acquire job", but I've never known what sort of job that would be. (Aside from all the usual, "teach english/other subject, freelance creative work for companies in english-speaking places, etc.")

whatsherface

@ThatWench I'm basically "outsourced" staff and working online for a North American-based company after seeing a job posting on a site for gringos. However, in Chile (where I am) there are so many foreign companies in the technology, mining, etc. areas that it IS possible to find opportunities for English-speakers, though you'll get paid a fraction of what you would anywhere else and will often have to have a good knowledge of Spanish. So until something arises, there's always teaching...which, yeah, kind of sucks in a saturated market (I hated it!).

@shart_attack There is a fabulous expat community here in Santiago. Join us!

pollypeachum

Once upon a time a woman owned a cat because she liked them and nobody made comments to her about how she was a "crazy cat lady" or nobody would want to date her because she owned a cat or those stories they heard about cats eating dead people saying doing any of those things is just plain stupid.

THE END.

apples and oranges

Once upon a time, a woman graduated college and had a degree she was happy with and proud of, and she wasn't sure what she wanted to do with her life. But she had wonderful friends and family and a relationship that made her very happy (even though she knew having a man wasn't the most important thing - more like a bonus thing) and one day thought maybe she'd get a pet. In the meantime, she imagined different potential future lives while baking brownies. She always licked the spoon and beaters.

Linette

Once there was a woman who had always been taught that she had to live a certain way, or no one would love her, and her life would be ruined, and there would be no way of fixing bad choices. She did not believe her own choices were bad ones, or that she could not fix those choices if they were, but she had never met anyone else who agreed, and so she was afraid to live her own way.

Then one day she found someone who thought her choices were great choices. "Really?" she said. "Of course," he said. "You're a smart person, and even if you make some bad choices, you will be able to fix them." "I've always thought that myself," she said. And so they lived happily ever after, making pretty good choices, and fixing the choices they made that were not that great, and having adventures in between times.

@Linette This is my favourite.

Krati

@Linette one of the best comments, i hope everyone lives their life like this :)

Jaya

Once upon a time there was a girl who didn't like what she saw in the mirror, and focused all her efforts on being smart instead of beautiful. But then she grew up and realized she was beautiful, and not because she fit modern standards of beauty, but because she had made a life for herself that was truly happy. (That life happened to involve a partner who was her best friend since childhood and a fat cat and learning how to pole dance.) She learned it was ok to think of herself as beautiful, because that's how she felt inside.

@Jaya it's raining on my FACE. lovely.

VolcanoMouse

Once upon a time, there was a young lady who didn't finish college. She nonetheless diligently paid off her student loans and started her own business and was generally very happy. Everyone was very proud of her for finding her own path and no one ever, ever insinuated that she was a disappointment for refusing to trade financial and emotional turmoil for a humanities degree she did not want or need.

...nah, too unrealistic.

KeLynn

Sometimes The Hairpin makes my heart swell up so much, I want to distribute the posts to many friends. But then I'm afraid they will look in the comments and figure out who I am and proceed to read my whole comment history and know odd details of my life, so I don't.

robotosaur

Once upon a time there was a lady whose friend canceled their plans to get drinks. The lady had been very much looking forward to relaxing after work, so even though she was by herself, she decided to go to the bar anyway, order a drink, and read a book. No one bothered her and the drink was delicious. She left a generous tip and felt good about her decisions.

Once upon a time a young woman was curious and ambitious and wanted to find work that would be intellectually stimulating and socially helpful. She learned and learned and learned, and took a job that was generally what she wanted, with room to grow. In the meantime she met a kind and honest man and they had an exuberant baby. The woman did pretty well at her generally satisfying job, tried to be a friendly and patient parent and wife, kept in touch with her friends even when they couldn't hang out often, and frequently made nutritious meals. She decided that 'pretty good much of the time' was just perfect for her so she shrugged her shoulders at the mirage of Ideal Womanhood and felt happy. The End.

@emeegee "Exuberant" is maybe the best baby type/descriptor. This is lovely!

Bittersweet

Once upon a time, a woman almost died of a previously undetected genetic health condition. She survived, and she married her college sweetheart and eventually they had a lovely child. She had a rewarding career, a nice house, lovely friends and a family that didn't drive her crazy (most of the time).

One day she sat down and really, truly accepted the physical limitations her health condition imposed on her. And she stopped being bitter about all the things she couldn't do, and she rejoiced in all the things she could do. And she recognized and celebrated all the blessings in her life, and was content.

The End.

@Bittersweet I needed that. Thank you.

Similar to #3, Once upon a time a dude was drunk in a bar and talked with a stranger lady for a while and when he eventually said he had to walk home, she offered him a ride and he accepted. They chit-chatted during the ride and he was grateful, and they said pleasant goodbyes before going their separate ways--and none of his friends asked if he "hooked up" with her.

Once upon a time, a single and childless woman's elderly parents needed increasing levels of help and care. So this woman and her non-single, non-childless siblings sat down with their parents and worked out a rotation of caregiving that everyone agreed was fair.

@Skydancing I need to believe in this fairy tale so much right now.

Slapfight

Once upon a time, a 30-something woman admitted to herself she was an attention whore and finally took an improv class. This taught her to stop fearing the things she wanted most and has since performed sketch comedy and stand up, worked as a background actor, adopted an awesome doggie and also learned to surf.

Once upon a time, a woman read an article online that actually made her feel better about herself and life in general. And then she read the comments after it and there wasn't a single horrible, nasty, hateful one in the bunch. The comments turned out to be as life-affirming and wonderful as the article. The woman smiled.

KeLynn

Once upon a time, a woman chose a job that she liked well enough. It didn't fulfill her soul, but the work was generally pleasant, the schedule was flexible, her coworkers were friendly, she had health insurance, and at the end of the day she could go home and leave it all at the office. She was content to have a job that she didn't love but that let her live nice life, and that was perfectly fine. After a few years, people even stopped asking her when she was going to find something better because they figured out that she was already pretty happy.

Once upon a time, a young woman went to her college's office of career services and talked about how she wanted to live in Europe some time after college because she didn't get to do study abroad and the lady at career services encouraged her to do so and helped her and didn't say "Why don't you wait until after your children are grown?", which would had been totally confusing as the young woman didn't have any children or boyfriend to speak of, and wasn't planning on having children for a long, long time anyway.

THE END.
*sighs wistfully*

RoxxieRae

Once upon a time, a lady and her sweet gentleman friend figured out that getting married wasn't really their scene, and that they'd rather go to music festivals and motorcycle races than have babies. They got drunk on Saturday nights and took turns picking records and dancing in their living room, and sometimes they used Garage Band to make songs that no one in their right mind would want to listen to. The drew inappropriate concept art for their terrible albums and put it on the fridge. They did this well into their old age and no one thought they were weird or selfish or sad. The End.

@RoxxieRae I love this SO MUCH. You guys sound like fun.

RoxxieRae

@shart_attack Thanks!! We certainly do crack ourselves the fuck up, that's for sure. My fairy tale got a lot cooler when I started planning financially for the kind of fun I wanted to have for my whole life, rather than worrying about people's sourfaced response to my kind of fun!

Bebe

Once upon a time, a woman who had struggled with her weight and self-esteem tied to her weight her whole life started to learn more about how her body worked, about her muscles and nerves and hormones and organs and how they all work together. She stopped thinking about her weight and instead tried to do cool stuff that she had learned her body could do. She never fit into size 6 pants, but she was too busy riding her bike and having fun to remember to care. The End.

@Bebe Yes! Bodies and the things they do are amazing.

Better to Eat You With

Once upon a time a lady loved her short haircut, even though her mother kept telling her to "grow that out or people will think you're a dyke." The lady rolled her eyes for years, until one day she said, "So what if I was? Who gives a shit?" very loudly, even though she's straight. Her mother didn't have anything to say to that, and then later on the lady grew her hair out because she missed ponytails.

whizz_dumb

@Better to Eat You With-- Once upon a time a dude thought short hair looked very attractive on ladies but didn't tell his girlfriends of his preference because his preference was whatever she felt comfortable with at the time and change is necessary and inevitable and good. The end.

PatatasBravas

Once upon a time, a woman who had been scared of blood and needles her whole life decided to try and overcome her fears, and she thought quietly to herself that it was really not an irrational fear and she could probably subdue it, and she breathed deeply, and worked up the courage to donate blood. She had an uncommon blood type, so the blood-collectors were very happy that she came in, and she had enough remaining courage to promise to donate as often as possible. Her friend celebrated this courage-development with her by cooking a feast, which included vanilla bean duck breast and chickpea brownies. They hugged carefully around the patched up arm.

The end.

@PatatasBravas ME TOO, but no hugs after for me. I cried my first time donating, second time was easier!

blueberry mary

Once upon a time, there was a young lady who moved to a large, exciting city where she had always wanted to live, and deep down, moved there looking for love. After several unsuccessful OkCupid dates, some lovely and promising until she never heard from the guys again, and some straight up terrifying and vaguely physically threatening, she decided to focus on enjoying her life as it is, pursuing comedy classes after work, joining a gym for her health, and spending time with old and new friends. She realized that she doesn't need to make getting into a relationship her only priority, and is a much better catch, and a much better person, to do things she enjoys, alone or not.

Although she might have a date tomorrow night.

Catglares

Once upon a time there was a woman who had been married before but it had not worked out. She knew herself very well and that her real passion was for raising children. She didn't think that because of society but because of her natural ability to care for and have patience for the children she'd help raise as her nieces and nephews and friends' children. So she went to a place that would help her get pregnant even though she didn't have a partner and she had a baby. And then she wanted more children so she went to another place where they helped her bring some babies to live with her for her to be their Mommy. And no one gave her any grief for choosing to be a single parent and she was very happy and her children were very happy. The End.

Catglares

*Epilogue: "Natural ability" meaning her, specific, personal natural talent. Other women have a natural talent or inclination for leading a business, or fixing mechanical things, or teaching, or doctoring. But this woman had a personal knack for being super patient as well as an inclination to read everything she could get her hands on about child development.

dlgallian

Once upon a time a woman was in a relationship with a man that she cared about but wasn't in love with. She'd spent a lot of time trying to fix herself and fix the relationship and wondered what was wrong with her. One day she realized that there was nothing wrong with her, except that she thought that there was something wrong with her. So she and her cat moved into a tiny studio and she began the business of learning to trust herself and her life. And someday she hopes she meets someone whom she actually does fall in love with and who doesn't think there's anything wrong with her, either.

@dlgallian Same!! And I did. And you will, too. <3

Once upon a time, a girl who had always been told that she was worthless and untalented, and that all good artists are men because women create babies and men create art and intellectual treasures...grew up and became an artist and a mother, and nobody asked her when she'd go back to having a real job, or harassed her for taking art classes after she had kids, or suggested that her considerable non-artistic education had been a waste of time and money. Her husband was very supportive, and her kids benefited from seeing that women can have non-maternal interests, even when they're mothers. It was awesome. The end.

Almostdevine

Once upon a time there was a girl who dreamed of having a family. She went to school, graduated from a difficult program, found a good paying job and settled into life. When she turned 33 she still hadn't found someone that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with, so she consulted her gay best friend. He too wanted to have babies but hadn't yet found anyone. They decided to have babies together because it made more sense to raise a child with some one she loved and respected, rather than a one night stand or sperm donor. Their family's were all very happy for them and congratulated them on their logical decision making. They had beautiful children who realized that there is more to life when you open your heart and mind. Those babies were well adjusted and had very good manners.

Once upon a time, there was a young girl who married a charming young boy, who everyone said was great and perfect for her. He turned out to be a jerk, and left her six months later.

The girl moved back home, and met a man who everyone said was all wrong for her and inappropriately older. She ignored that advice because the man treated her with kindness and respect and made her feel beautiful every day. 23 years later, he still does.

kimkrypto

Once upon a time there was a girl whose parents were patient and understanding. When she made a mistake they didn't yell at her and criticize her, but left her to figure it out or helped her fix it if she needed help. They were caring and open about their struggles, but didn't put each other down. As she grew, they trusted her even when she made decisions they didn't understand, and they were very interested to know more about her as a person. When she got older, she moved away, but she still came to visit when she could and had a great, evolving, strong relationship with each of them. Every time she visited, they made sure to tell her how proud they were of her. THE END.

@kimkrypto AND Once upon a time there was a woman who walked for a mile down a busy city street, and not a single person commented on her body or addressed her in a creepy way. This was totally normal for the woman, and just like every other day in her life. THE END.

Ellie

Once upon a time there was a woman whose work space happened to be at the front desk of the office she worked in, even though she wasn't really a receptionist and her work required a great deal of focus and concentration. Even though she was happy to sign for packages, greet visitors, and hand out the mail (especially when the cute mailman delivered it), she was sometimes frustrated because of how often she would get distracted from her work by colleagues who would engage her in trivial social conversations, make random inane comments for the sake of talking out loud, spontaneously address her about small work matters and ask her complicated questions when she was in the middle of something else. Sometimes they also had loud conversations with each other standing in front of or next to her desk. But after she mentioned in an office meeting that it was hard to concentrate with the frequent distractions of sitting at the front desk, nobody ever interrupted her again unless it was really important and she was able to have long periods of time to herself to focus on her work. Then she was able to get much more done, came home happy instead of feeling anxious, and returned to loving her job as much as she previously did. The end.

@Ellie Oh I hear you sis! I want this fairy tale to come true to me!

brainchild

Once upon a time there was a woman who spent many years in college earning several graduate degrees. Much to everyone's surprise, she discovered after having a baby that what she really wanted was to devote herself full time to her tiny human. She left her career, and no one implied that she was wasting her education, and certainly no one ever asked her if she really thought she would be happy "just" being a stay at home mom.

So she and her husband moved to the burbs, bought a minivan, enrolled the child(ren) in soccer, and she was very fulfilled and never felt guilty about maybe being a stereotype. The only thing that made her sad was that she was always late to every pin thread because she had to wait until bed time to get on the hairpin.

finguns

@brainchild And every so often she sat down with her husband and discussed the division of household and child-raising labor. Even though it was logical that she do more of those chores, she and her husband agreed that she should not be responsible for all of them, so they came to an agreement they could both live with and stuck with that agreement and she never had to unload the dishwasher again.

glitterary

Once upon a time there was a young woman who realised that traditional relationship formats and vanilla sex were not working for her at that point in her life. So she started sleeping with people she liked even if she didn't want to be their girlfriend, and everyone communicated their feelings and needs clearly and was happy with the situation. She started hanging out with kinky people and learning about all the amazing things her body could do. No-one ever called her feminism into question or suggested that sleeping with people she wasn't in a relationship with diminished her value in any way. And everyone was happy for her and she didn't have to pretend she was excited about something else because people would think she was weird or inappropriate if they knew the real reason. And everyone saw how happy she was and felt empowered to do sex and relationships whatever way worked best for them too, and they all enjoyed themselves and were fulfilled ever after.

upsofloating

Once upon a time there was a young woman who fell deeply, deeply in love with a gorgeous man who gave her flowers and wrote her poems and told her she was the centre of his world. She packed up all her things, left all her friends and moved to be with him. When she got there, she realized that things weren't what she thought they would be, and the assumed it was all her fault, so she started changing lots of little things about herself. She went to a Messuga concert, and it was horrible. The gorgeous blond man started a relationship with another woman who had a family and kept our heroine on the side. She put up with it. After a few months, she was so unhappy that she wound up in a hospital. Finally, she called the gorgeous blonde and told him never to contact her ever again. She stopped answering his emails, texts and phonecalls. She litsened to Jagged Little Pill at least once a day and all her friends took her back and wished herpes on her ex. She went off to university, started her degree in comparative litterature, and fell quiety, softly, and hilariously in love with her best friend. She listened to Joni Mitchell ever after. The end.

Once upon a time, a little girl had a rough childhood and many people made her feel bad about herself. She got very angry and sad but decided not to listen to them, and went to college and studied an art form that she was passionate about. She went on to have a career in that art, in which she exorcised many of her past's demons, and she went to therapy regularly to deal with some of the remaining residue. Slowly, she found that she could be happy and successful and make her dreams come true, and all of those people in her past were just unhappy themselves, which had made them mean. And slowly but surely, she came to forgive them and herself. And then she met a very nice fellow who made killer tomato sauce and they were very happy together, and that was another new beginning.

Once upon a time there was a girl who grew into an amazing woman. She got a college degree in a subject she liked studying then began work in the completely unrelated field of reproductive justice. She got married and had a baby and motherhood made her more passionate about helping others. She left an office job to devote more time to unpaid work and being with her family and was proud of her talents. She was a wonderful mother and did important work in her community. She read interesting books and ate good food and lived happily ever after. The end.

Once upon a time, a girl decided that she was different from her parents and her entire family. She realized that anyone who told her she was a bad person repeatedly from the age of seven was not worth her time. She went to college and while she had many amazing experiences, her most important one was becoming a person outside of her destructive home. When she failed to set out on her own after college, she had to confront the reality that she was permanently damaged by the upbringing that she almost escaped. While she had a good soul, she never learned how to be a friend or a nice person because she had always been told she was no good. And so, she had no connections to draw upon and found herself friendless when she needed those things desperately. Staring out the window of her childhood bedroom, the girl realized that her hardest work was still ahead of her.

Once upon a time there was a woman who knew something was wrong with her body. Instead of listening to the countless male doctors who told her to lose weight, "It will magically cure all ailments," she went to a female woman's specialist doctor. Instead of berating her, belittling her or insulting her size, she questioned her history and family history. This amazeballs doctor gave her an ultrasound finding a 2in x 2.5in mass in her uterus that was precancerous. Three days later this woman was in surgery removing her "girl parts" at 32-years-old. Standing firm and standing up for herself, refusing to take the male's advice, she is alive today because she listened to her body over presumptive doctors.

happy go lucky scamp

@dharmabean wow - amazeballs doctors are too few and far between.

PomoFrannyGlass

Once upon a time a girl spent most of her 20s with a man she'd met when she was even younger, and they got married. Eventually it became apparent that neither of them was very practically-minded, and instead of trying to work as a team on this, the man was tacitly pushing all of the responsibility of thinking about finances and the future onto the woman. She was very unhappy and resentful and finally she left. Because they had no children and no money, the divorce was very clean and simple. At first the woman was very happy: she had her own apartment for the first time in her life, a good job, an improved relationship with her family, and the perfect rebound (after an appropriate time of rest). She even got a book deal. So what if it wasn't exactly as she'd dreamed? Book deals never are. After a time, some existential anxieties began to creep in, and this made the woman sad. But she had dealt with similar anxieties in the past and she decided that she would try to set them aside and distract herself in healthy ways, like working on her book and nesting in her apartment and spending time with friends and getting her cat back even though the apartment is very small and participating anonymously in a very pleasant online community that has helped her very much through this time and going to yoga class and eating nice dinners at restaurant bars alone while reading excellent books and seeking philosophical systems that might give her better perspective and make life feel more meaningful and less painful.

And so she does these things every day, and she practices patience with her mother, who loves her very much but is still VERY CERTAIN she will remarry and have children one day VERY SOON. The woman knows that those are only a few of many possibilities the future might hold.

And she tries so hard to have hope that someday she'll meet someone for whom she has feelings, who is not afraid to have feelings for her, and that they will have a relationship, and maybe even a happy and full life together, whether they get married or not or have children or not. And that she will write a good book, and many more. And that some distant day she'll pay off her grad school loans. And that some day really soon, like maybe tomorrow, yes definitely tomorrow! she'll be able to quit internet stalking the much younger and very different woman her ex-husband is now very seriously involved with.

She's trying. She has hope. The end.

Once upon a time there was a young woman who joined an online dating site for shits 'n' giggles. Eventually, a man messaged her who was not at all creepy, and actually seemed like quite a fascinating gentleman. The two went out for coffee, had a fantastic hours-long conversation, and decided to keep seeing each other even though she would be moving in a few months. The pair spent those months hanging out, enjoying each other's company and having fantastic sex, and nobody asked her why she would enter into an explicitly short-term relationship, or raised their eyebrows when she mentioned how much older the gentleman was. Finally, it was time for the young lady to move, and the good-byes were a little sad. But when she got to her new town, she had a great time starting an intellectually fulfilling career, making new friends, and playing video games while hanging out with her cats. She and the gentleman kept in touch and continued to be friends, and everybody was quite happy with, and appreciative of, the whole experience. The end.

This is amazing.

Once upon a time there was a little girl who believed she always had to be perfect and so was always scared. When she grew older, she got lost in a deep, dark, hopeless wood, and it was nobody's fault because life just happens, even in fairy tales. Then one day a woman with fabulous shoes and a radiant smile found her and began to lead her out of the wood, step by step. The girl was now thirty, and she still didn't know which path was hers, but she wasn't scared any longer, and she knew that because she didn't have to be perfect, she could be good*.

wander

Once upon a time there was a girl who had the chance to travel for two weeks after she graduated college--a trip she'd been working three summers at a warehouse to pay for--but none of her friends and family could go with her. So she did it anyway, even though most people were highly skeptical of a girl traveling by herself through the UK and the Republic of Ireland and she was a little nervous herself. And she stayed at hostels, met interesting people, went to stunning places, figured out public transportation, went out for drinks with people she'd met hours before, stayed safe, and had the time of her life while learning exactly what she is capable of if forced to rely on herself. And when she got back and people told her they never could have done what she did, she thought to herself that they probably could, if they trusted themselves enough to try. And that if she'd learned anything it was that sometimes you just need to go for it, no matter what anyone says.

I want to add my own 'fairy tale' but I also am looking through these comments and basically all our fairy tales are very similar and we all are just awesome. "Beauty, Truth, Awesomeness. That's all it is."

reading the comments proves that women all over the world r still targeted so much , we all have come so ahead in our thoughts, yet society tries to pull us down when ever n whr ever it can, each one of us should live their fairy tale, coz none of us want any exuberant things, we just want minute changes in our lives, just wanna be accepted as we are n not some modified version of us

My Fairy Tale:
there was once a girl who graduated in the wrong field but her job brought her closer to what she liked, she had a supportive bf n office environment n her parents were really proud of her and never worried about her future or forced her to find a partner who earned a lot no matter what kind of person he was to get married to, in future when she introduced the guy she loved to her parents they accepted him in a blink of an eye with all the love n warmth n they all lived happily

once upon a time there was a sad girl with many problems. one day after a unpleasant event, she tried to calm herself down by meditating. while meditating she started to ask herself what was really up setting her. she realized all of the problems she had was due to her out of whack ego. she also realized her ego is not important and she doesn't need to take notice of it, it was just a human survival system. she vowed to never let her ego effect her decisions from that day. she only wore make up when she wanted to and didn't care what other people thought, it doesn't matter if people didn't think she was good looking all the time. she also went to the gym every day and ate healthy tasty food, not because other women would judge her if she didn't but because she wanted to feel good and energized. she could have slept around without caring about being called a slut, but she didn't, she knew that she needed no outside validation from strangers. she became very friendly to everyone and almost everyone enjoyed her company. eventually she met a like minded guy and as a couple they shared their love to everyone around. eventually everyone began to act like them. everyone gave up their obsession with sex and hatred of things they didn't understand

She dated men, later she dated women, but mostly was so highly independent that she resisted long term attachments that might curtail her freedom. She had only a five minute tolerance for children and never once had a desire to have any. She was happy. She also had a very cool cat.

Later, as she approached fifty, she was at a yard sale and watched someone's journals and pictures sold like so much general junk. She watched people go through this person's possessions that had meant so much to someone while they were alive.

She noted that soon that would be her stuff, and that no one would carefully handle this ring or necklace, saying that it had belonged to their great-grandmother (her).

She saw the beautiful families of her friends, who had seemed like fools back in the day for allowing their freedom to be imposed on by children or family. She realized how selfish her world view had been and felt that our 'me' society had sold her a bill of goods that did not pan out. She saw how she was now paying the price; however, she accepted responsibility for her decisions and the reality that she could not go back and redo them.

She realized that eventually, her real life will go on past this life, but found herself surprisingly, regretting some of her earlier decisions. But she understood she made the best decisions she could at the time and that her intentions were good. She wondered who her children would have been, who she might have married, and what her life would have been like if she had made different choices, had she not let her freedom became her jailer.

She resolved to make her remaining time on this earth count as much as she could, to make an impact where at all possible, to help others and and to pursue worthy activities with her time and energy. She lived her life well, found happiness in her spirituality, but questioned her earlier choices, and wished she had had the benefit of hindsight.

She wondered if it was too late to find someone great, and decided that it was probably not and that she could not redo everything, but she had the ability to make new choices that might mitigate some of her old choices.
She realized that this was a better definition of freedom - the ability to change her mind at any time.

The end for now...

Once upon a time a woman "expressed her sexuality" and was able to become a fully actualized human being via many types of sexual encounters with many men in series and sometimes simultaneously. When she decided to take a husband, she explained to each candidate that the super-easy-to-acquire sex with dozens of other men helped shape who she is today. Upon hearing this wonderful news, each man, despite having no more than five prior partners each as very few men can be so promiscuous even if they wanted to, all lined up to ask for her hand in marriage.

@TefExpat ...and she had 15 lovely years of marriage, despite her inability to have children due to endometriosis and several pelvic infections acquired during her "super-easy-to-acquire" phase, before being taken by cervical cancer in her late forties.

@gwopy ...well since its a fairytale, Obamacare saves her and shortly after her husband dies many years later all the original suitors come back around to try again.

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who grew up knowing that she was different to other people, both in the way she looked and in the way she was inside. She liked the fact that she was different to other people inside because it made her feel special and unique and full of character but it made her feel sad that she looked different to other people because they would make fun of her for being bigger than them. But when she left school (where she later realised that the other children were only making fun of how she looked because if they were the ones making the mean comments, no-one was making mean comments about them) and grew up and away from small and closed minded people, she began to realise that the things that made her look different to other people were the things that made her beautiful. She began to realise that her crazy corkscrew curly hair was wonderful and pretty, she began to appreciate her womanly curves. She began to realise that it was futile to try and look like the women in the fashion magazines because thanks to airbrushing - even *they* didn't look like their pictures. And she began to really love herself and realise that she was worth taking care of, worth buying lovely clothes for and worth being treated nicely by everyone she met. And she danced and she smiled and she lived and she loved and she tried to teach everyone she met to love themselves too. The End.

Once upon a time a wombyin lived as wild and free as she liked and no one judged her because they were too busy forging for berries and edibles in nature and the modern wombyin reconnected with her anscestral roots and never again worried about what other people thought but instead devoted herself to the art of living in bliss truth and love. The idea that having a degree or career to be considered a modern woman became a distant memory and we all lived happily ever after without western capitalist brain washing or any other ideology that disconnected us from the truth we were born with. Wombyin working creating playing in loving harmony without competing for money or cock or power. The beginning.

Once upon a time there was a girl who was told she should do something "great" and "big" with her life. She tried a bunch of different careers, but found herself broke and unsatisfied. Finally, she took a decent-paying, but not-that-interesting admin job. She found that her co-workers were really nice, and there was often free food at work. She started investing more time in her personal life and realized that her career didn't define who she was. She lived with her caring boyfriend and awesome cat and had lots of friends, and was satisfied with that.

She is very happy. The End.

Once upon a time a woman with a good job, left her 12 year old daughter and her husband of 13 years to be with a beer guzzling friend who was also dying of some sort of cancer. They lived happily until he passed away in his sleep one fine day a year later. She learnt to love, the hard way. Her daughter spends time with her during the hols and her ex-husband is her best friend. She doesn't want to have a man in her life anymore. She preferred the single independent lady status way too much to let go. And she lived happily ever after

I. Once upon a time a young woman who didn't know much about computers decided to take a programming class. Most of the other people in the class were boys and had more experience than her, and the material was hard, so she worried she might not be good enough. But she really liked programming and worked hard in the class. She got an A in that class and found out that the more she practiced, the more skilled she got, and later she became a professional programmer.

II. Once upon a time two girls met in college and liked each other very much. Things never turned romantic between them, but they became closer over the years, even during several years when they lived far apart. The first woman missed the second one a lot, so when her husband's job allowed it, she and her husband moved back to the second woman's city. Now the two women see each other all the time and are very happy.

III. Once upon a time a man and a woman were married, and the man didn't want sex as often as the woman. Sometimes this made her feel unloved and unlovely. So she talked to him about her feelings, and they had an open and respectful conversation where they both said how they felt and what they wanted. Together they agreed on some compromises, and while they sometimes felt frustrated and didn't always get exactly what they wanted, they both felt loved and listened to, and kept having honest conversations to keep abreast of each other's feelings and try to accommodate each other's changing wants and needs.

Once upon a time there was a woman who was quite lonely, who felt ugly and unlovable. She took steps to improve her life, and became self-sufficient. She figured out what was lovable about her and realized she loved herself. She joined groups and did activities she found fun and interesting that helped her meet people. At one she met a man who had been where she was, too. He found her interesting and beautiful and lovable. They connected. And eventually they married and had two wonderful children. After a while, they both realized that they still loved one another very much, but there was something more they needed. So they opened up their marriage and found other people to love. There was challenge, and some drama and a lot of loving, respectful communication. The man continued to work on finding other loves to bring into his life, and the woman helped him. The woman found another man to cherish, and it did not diminish the love she held for her husband one bit. They are happier and healthier and have lives more full of love than they could have imagined long ago when they were lonely. They worry about what could happen if their lifestyle became public, but it is what works for them, and it hurts no one else, so they continue. There is no happy ending to this story because it keeps going with ups and downs and unhappy parts, but all of them together are working at creating their own unconventional happily ever after.
