Mirror, mirror upon the wall.. by Iardacil Mirror, mirror upon the wall.. by Iardacil
This is a collab between me and :iconfrozenstarro: for *Arden18 contest [link] based on Grimm Brothers fairytale and had to be a collab.

IMPORTANT: If you like this, as it is our both work, please go and fav her's too! We both did it. her's is up here: [link]

=FrozenStarRo has her computer crashed and she won't be able to upload hers until some days (but she managed, luckily, send me her part yesterday and we managed to make final touch before her computer decided to stop working) I hope it won't be a problem...

It is dedicated for two great girls who have been such a great support for both of us. For fantastic :iconlareth: and :iconsylwiaa: Thank you both :hug:

It was first that kind of experience for me (on collab) and to be honest, I was afraid. I was not sure how I could work with team in art.. and how we can make up and decide what is the best without hurting each other feelings but the experience I got... the way i enjoyed it.. how we both find each other's mistakes and made them better. I just am so happy that i went trough it :) And I just adore the atmosphere we created. Thank you for offering me a such an opportunity

From "Snowwhite":
"Mirror, mirror upon the wall, Who is the fairest of all?"

The mirror answered-
"Thou, O Queen, art the fairest of all,"

and the Queen was contented, because she knew the mirror could speak nothing but the truth.

But as time passed on, Little Snow-White grew more and more beautiful, until when she was seven years old, she was as lovely as the bright day, and still more lovely than the Queen herself, so that when the lady one day asked her mirror-

"Mirror, mirror upon the wall, Who is the fairest fair of all?"

it answered-
"O Lady Queen, though fair ye be, Snow-White is fairer far to see."

The Queen was horrified, and from that moment envy and pride grew in her heart like rank weeds, until one day she called a huntsman and said "Take the child away into the woods and kill her, for I can no longer bear the sight of her. And when you return bring with you her heart, that I may know you have obeyed my will."

The huntsman dared not disobey, so he led Snow-White out into the woods and placed an arrow in his bow to pierce her innocent heart, but the little maid begged him to spare her life, and the child's beauty touched his heart with pity, so that he bade her run away.

Then as a young wild boar came rushing by, he killed it, took out its heart, and carried it home to the Queen.

Poor little Snow-White was now all alone in the wild wood, and so frightened was she that she trembled at every leaf that rustled. So she began to run, and ran on and on until she came to a little house...


And in case you are too happy, I started it before the artistic block, so.. :S saddly, this is not the sign that I am over of it..

interesting foto!!
it's shining and looks really fairitale like~

and it's fascinating to read the rhyme in english! in german it is:
"Spieglein, Spielglein an der Wand, wer ist die schönste im ganzen Land"

word by word translation:
mirrorette (?), mirrorette at the wall , who is the fairest in the whole land (kingdom, country)
(maybe you would say 'mirrory' in english? I don't know the 'cute' form of english words...)

1. answer:
"Frau Königin, ihr seid die Schönste im Land."
"Lady Queen, you are the fairest in the Land."

the answer:
"Frau Königin ihr seid die Schönste hier, aber Schneewittchen ist tausend mal schöner als ihr."
"Lady Queen you are the fairiest here, but Snow-Whitey is thousand times fairier than you."



it's in all german fairitaley the same: we use the cute form of the words~
like for the names of the most main characters (especially the female):

Schneewittchen - Snow-Whity
Dornrößchen - (Sleeping Beauty) Thorn-Rosey
Rotkäppchen - (little red riding hood) Red-Capy / Red-Hoody
Aschenputtel / Aschenbrödel - (Cindarella) Ash-Burrow / Ash-Loafy

it's really interesting to read the english version~ XD
