cormallen: The Silver Ring Master Post
Jared has an over-active imagination. Right?
Everyone knows that nothing ever happens in quaint, sleepy New Exeter, but to hear Jared Padalecki tell it, the town's rife with adventure, from a fairy princess searching for her true love to neighboring mice redrawing the borders and engaging in mortal combat. Of course, everyone, from his parents to the mayor, also knows that Jared's been making up stories ever since he learned his ABCs, and his friends, the eccentric owners of The Amber Moon Magic Shoppe, only encourage him. So when Sandy and Jeff give Jared a magic ring, it doesn't mean an enchanted prince will be arriving to claim it. Or does it?
Jared tells stories. Sandy and Jeff run a magic shop. The mice under the Padaleckis' porch are fighting a war against the mice next door.
The one where Jared's always had a touch of magic in his life and Jensen's the literal man of his dreams. [And Jensen is barely even in the story before -gasp!- they start in on happily ever after.] Wildly unbalanced with regard to Jensen's character, but still very good.

ignipes: Panic fic: A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes (Ryan/Spencer)
There's a masquerade ball at the castle.
10,439 words. Cinderella AU in which Ryan is an orphan taken in by the Smiths. An orphan who is very excited about going to the royal ball, until he discovers he has nothing to wear. LOVE THIS. It's funny and sweet and not really romantic at all, especially for a Cinderella story, but it's awesome! Bonus: Prince Jon and Brendon the fairy godmother. And the limericks. \o/
A Cinderella story. Ryan is in love with Prince Jon, but his real Prince Charming may be a little closer to home than he was expecting.

a cinderella story
Once upon a time there was a beautiful young man who lived in a village by the castle. He was tall and elegant and well-dressed when he could afford to be, which wasn't often because he had lost both parents to fever at a very young age. He was taken in by another family who, alas, treated him very poorly— "Hey! We do not!" —and often forced the young man to perform hard labor while they lounged about in indolence. They gave him a room— "Yeah, my room."
"It's nothing to be ashamed of," Brendon said, in the same tone of voice Mrs. Smith had used that day she'd sat Ryan and Spencer down and told them where babies came from. "Enthusiasm can make up for a lack of skill a lot of the time—" "No," Ryan said quickly. "No demonstration." Brendon dropped his hand and sighed. "Pure as the driven snow. It's kind of cute, you know. And just because the opportunity has never presented itself—" "The opportunity has presented itself plenty of times," Ryan said. He began fussing angrily with his cravat.

Dina Goldstein's Fallen Princesses
This really doesn't pertain to class discussions or my cultural analysis, but this is a Canadian artist and I think her work is quite honest and appropriate for a gender class. This artist has appropriated the bright colours of the famous Disney princesses to the lives of real women. She juxtaposes these easily recognizable characters (Belle, Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White, etc.) with modern issues (War, cosmetic surgery, captivity, and motherhood) to have quite startling results. I think her message is quite simple: There's more to life for women than "happily ever after". Some of these images are horrific and incredibly disheartening. --Jami McFarland
