Fantasy

Author’s—, er, I feel stupid, em,...

My note: this is one of my old stories, tweaked a little, only grammar, I had no idea this one would kinda fit the prompt, but not exactly. However, it’s just another reworking of ğ•®ğ–Žğ–“ğ–‰ğ–Šğ–—ğ–Šğ–‘ğ–‘ğ–†, super stupid, (I am confused, can it be called fan fiction? XD) thus, sorry if it’s a bit lame! (And at least put this ‘✍’ in the comments, or I’m gonna assume that you liked this without reading, I really don’t want points guys!)


𝕿𝖍𝖊 𝖙𝖍𝖗𝖊𝖊



How could she do this to me? I am going to kill her! Tear out her hand! Oh, Biscuits of crystals!


Cinderella BANGED her hand on the table, making everything on it jump, rolled her eyes quite dramatically and sighed.


My stepsister is Strinen Stranglesant?


Of course I wanted to kill that misery, but a punch would’ve been enough for Stefanie, now I want to kill and punch her! Oh, yes! She is coming in person today, and she is going to answer me!


Was Steff playing the hero in disguise or something? Well, more like villain in disguise, but I am going to make her answer either way.


✍✍✍



Stefanie hesitated again when she reached the castle


I absolutely shouldn’t have told Ella about it, she is possibly unnerved right now.


Stefanie scrunched her face at familiar front entrance, which was some humongous flights of stairs, with a person, dressed in indigo, standing every landing.


She stomped up the stairs.


What a fool I am!, I should have known that suddenly announcing that I bribed th—, wait, I didn’t say that yet. Well, saying that I am the author she horrendously hates also worked miracles, why does she hate the place so much? There is good food, no work and no Delrina on her piano, eh, even I play better than Delrina.


Stefanie stomped harder.


So, why does Ella want to get out of here so much?!


✍✍✍



Cinderella yawned.


I truly need to get out of here!


She bit her lip.


Oh, I was so free at home, me doing whatever I want, Stefanie and Delrina studying and trying to be ‘great’, how their mother wanted, like slaves. I have no idea how Steff could write it all so that it sounded the other way, that girl has talent.


I just need to get out, I feel as if I am corroding, with all the fancy stuff and the all the attention, no wandering without anyone noticing, or picking wildflowers, or stealing cookies from Delrina’s secret stash.


Oh, Dell, I actually miss her and her piano, and also Steff’s off singing and our dancing with the mopes, and now I have a lousy courting prince to dance with, what fate!


Cinderella sighed, wiping her forehead and looking at her feet.


And also a stupid pair of glass slippers I can’t walk in, what fate indeed.


And why is not Steff here yet? Maybe she knows a way out, she is the who trapped me here!, or mayhap no, I, trapped myself. Although what about the letter? She had said that she was coming in person to say farewell today.


I don’t know... where is she going? And why? To study more? Is that even possible for her?


✍✍✍



At the top of the stairs were archways, corridors and lobbies and then more archways, corridors and lobbies. Stefani hated the castle every time she had to go through this.


There were also more people dressed in splendid blue, inquiring about what she was doing in the castle, and she would have show them the handwritten note by Cinderella.


Also, there were more stairs, up and down, and up and down, and down and down, and down.


Does Ella hate the castle because of this? Then I will have to side with her, this is distressing, I don’t even remember where her room is!


I really need to see her before going!, she is only one I feel like telling it to, I really can’t bear home any longer.


She won’t understand, she still thinks that all this is child’s play; me posing as a villain like in my other tales. Nevertheless, this is important; this is going to set me free. This has proved that I have potential and I will set out today, with a new name.


There will no longer be a Stefani, no Strinen either. I love my new fame. People love the story! But I will have to leave that here too; I have obey my part of the deal, if the publisher obeys his part.


Hm, shedding names like how snakes shed skin...


Suddenly, Stefani looked around.


Oh my!, I am lost! This is more tangled than a labyrinth, I have to leave today, or I will be stuck as Stefani!


✍✍✍



Oh, Biscuits of crystals! Where is Steff?


Cinderella was standing in the royal garden, her arms crossed.


I need to get out of this misery as soon as possible! I am going home with her, I can’t stand this anymore!


She let her hands fall to her sides and jerked, there was someone watching her behind, she turned slowly.


“Hello, Ella,” said Stefani, looking as if she has ran a great distance.


“Stefani!”


“Yes, almost-princess.”


“I am coming home.”


“What?”


“I, I miss Dell, and you, and some proper footwear.”


“What?, but, Ella, I am going—”


“Eh?”


“I am going,” Stefani looked at her feet, “I am going out of the kingdom, I finally have enough money.”


“As Straglesant?”


“No, I can’t use that pseudonym anymore, but I can’t stay here anymore either!, you know mom!, she will never let me write.”


Cinderella raised an eyebrow, her face creasing, “Oh, so you want to write!?, After trapping me here? Oh yes, you want to be an author! Do you at least remember what I wanted to be?”


Mumbled Stefani “A hat maker or a seamstress, what are you trying to say?”


“You don’t understand? Oh yes, a princess can be a seamstress. Couldn’t you leave me as a spoiled child? Did you have to wreak it all?”


“I didn’t do anything!”


“Yes you did!”


“I didn’t know that you would hate it so much.”


“You knew that I came to the ball just to taste the royal desserts!”


“I just changed it around a little!”


“What? Substituted it with a puny prince?”


“What is the problem with the prince?”


“Oh, nothing, I just feel like mopping the floor with him!”


“But Ella I—”


“Nothing!, I am coming with you!”


“WHAT?”


“I, am, coming, with, you!”


“But... hm, agreed”


Cinderella turned towards the setting sun and fell down, “Oh, biscuits of crystals!” she stood up, removed her shoes and threw them into the bushes.


“Farewell, misery!”


“Barefoot?, and why are you going towards that direction?”


“Into the sunset?”


“I am the author here, and no, we have to go that way, or so I guess.”


“Arh”


“So...., we are doing this, we are shedding names like how snakes shed skin, we are leaving here, forever.


“But won’t we feel incomplete?”


Cinderella grinned.


“No we won’t, because we won’t be.”

Not over thinking, like I wrote this like more than 3-4 years ago, and even a rock changes with 3-4 years. Like I went from lamest to lamer, next goal: lame Btw, I replayed to the other thread here, I’d no idea how to put it there without it being hard to read, that’s so mixed up (eh, the below thing in brackets is your replay, put it there so it doesn’t get super confusing) [ℂ𝕠𝕟𝕗𝕣𝕠𝕟𝕥... 𝕪𝕖𝕒𝕙, ğ•žğ•ª 𝕔𝕒𝕥 𝕛𝕦𝕤𝕥 𝕖𝕒𝕥𝕤 𝕓𝕦𝕘𝕤.

lol, yeah... oop I think it was only 8:00 here... I can't remember. You have a high school teacher mom? I could never imagine that. Idk, it must feel weird. I'm always awkward with stuff like that. Is it possible to be awkward online? Somehow, I think I manage it. It's not that I can't continue conversations or make them die out; I just suck at starting them. Binx. It's a reference lol.

Ya, like she is kinda serious about ‘physiological aspects of teaching’, so I get really scientific lectures about (teen/ya/na/whatever tf that comes next) ‘minds’ which makes me feel really weird. and she looks weird with spectacles and I get an inside scoop of the teacher’s life which is HECTIC but she is also total ‘impertinent’, like it’s like her habit to ask weird things on valentine’s day (or any day, it just gets really stupid on that day), like. “hey, do you want a bunch of roses to go around and test your luck?” (that’s the LEAST c...

1• Lol, u made a late reply? I mean, I think at least part of our sleep cycles overlaps, I guess. I mean, I would have been sleeping if I wasn't literally just staring at my ceiling. I wish I had my own room; then I'd be able to stare up at the ceiling, blare music and just start screaming with the string lights on. Instead, it's all just blank. Yes, like I know I need friends and people around me that are more grounded than me, but at the same time, it's so annoying bc like... idk, it's hard. Like, I want someone who's able to talk intelle...

(Heh it's itsy bitsy cousins and they are visiting (for something like a regional harvest celebration) and they read everything over my shoulder, like ALOUD! It gets weird (and cringifying)) Hm, you might need a noise insulated room for blasting music or screaming, why else would I still keep my earphones?

1: You didn't know what lol meant? Lol... that definitely was yeeted once you met me... LOL.

1) Oh, sorry, I am just so numb ‘cause everyone scoffs when I say that, I really didn’t mean to be rude or anything. Arh, I should stop leaping before I look. Ya, most people are bah, they’re just gah. I just hope that it’s possible to stop the world from being set on fire, or from being sunken in water. (Like the fire part is the most relatable one, but I’m more familiarised with floods, but of course, summers are getting unbearable).

✍ Hi there!! I thought this was great. I'm not sure why you think it's lame, you should be proud of your work :) You said that this story was old, but isn't it great when you can go back to a story and use it for one of these prompts. I thought this story was good, I thought it was a unique take on the classic tale. I also liked the style in which you wrote this. Everyone has there own style of writing, and you did a great job here!!
