TinkertoyStory Book Title/Fable:
Snow White and the Seven DwarvesCharacter Name:
Snow White, she goes by the name Nieve Galvin when interacting with unknowns in and out of FaircastleAge:
Johanna F. HerrstedtHair:
As black as well polished onyx that fall to just past her shoulders in glossy plains.Eyes:
The clear blue of a winter’s day.Weight:
One hundred and fifteen poundsHeight:
Five feet and five inchesPhysical Description:
There is a reason why Snow was the fairest in the land in her tale. The high contrast of her pale skin, black hair and red lips is startlingly beautiful and the long, the slender lines of her body lends her a certain gracefulness that can never be learned. Snow could never be accused of being voluptuous; her curves are subtle, but still very much present. Both her hands and feet are small and delicate and her nails on both are usually painted in a shade of red.Other Notable Features:
Snow tends to a keep a monochromatic palate when it comes to her wardrobe. There will be the odd splash of red or pop of blue but she keeps mostly to black and shades of gray. There is a certain appeal about Snow that is hard to place a finger on, children and animals seem almost magnetically drawn to her, adults also seem to sense an air of calm about her that can be perceived as either soothing or misconstrued as a detachment to her surroundings.Likes (non sexual):
Long hikes in the woodlands, uninterrupted hot showers, being recognised for her mind, being the first to walk on a fresh snowfall, brutal honesty, singing when no one is there to hear her, having free will, her apartment, the scent of old books, making macarons and old Motown music.Dislikes (non-sexual):
Apples, confined spaces, glass elevators, dishonesty, unsolicited or surprise gifts, having her trust abused, over friendly and over familiar people, being treated with ‘kid gloves”, unrealistic happy endings, cluttered desktops on computers and folk music.Personality of Character - in story:
The sweet and innocent Snow was as naïve as she was beautiful. Her heart carried so much love that it extended to all she came in contact with, to the point where she would put all others ahead of her own wellbeing. It was this delicate aura of purity that broke the Huntsman’s heart when he was given the task of cutting her down and returning to her wicked step-mother, the queen, with her heart. It was this compassion that enchanted both beast and man alike in the darkened woods that were far beyond the kingdom that guided the animals of the woodland to keep her safe and never without food. It was this empathy that shone in brilliant rays that the dwarves recognised as someone who could look after them as much as they looked after her.
Snow never had a mean or cruel word to say about any living soul and she took all at face value. Accepting fine bodices, pretty combs and glossy, red apples from strangers never would cause alarm, but instead she would show great appreciation and gratitude for such kindness.Personality of Character - out of story:
Having your good natured preyed upon in a continuous loop for centuries will have something of a negative effect on anyone, but for Snow, the impact hasn’t been as great as it could have been. Though she is still an empathetic and compassionate woman, the years of her story abusing her trust and kind nature has not been forgotten.
On the surface, Snow can seem a little frosty, but beneath that defense is the heart of a princess that still wants to care and trust all those that she meets. She has become a great amount more cautious with whom she gives her trust and respect to and reserves those privileges for those who show her their true worth. Definitely older and wiser, Snow has matured during her time out of her story and has even found a certain flair for the unlady-like use of sarcasm. The freedom she now has is something that she cherishes and has vowed to never be the damsel in distress again. She has a quiet sense of control about her and a fierce loyalty that is only surpassed by her affection once a soul has managed to breach her defences. The day the world changed:
There is something about waking from magically induced suspended animation in a glass coffin by choking that never leaves a soul. The way the light refracts through the glass and your breath fogs the panes as you gasp for air is not something anyone would want to live through once, never mind having to face it countless times in an eternal loop. It was the final time that the bumbling prince allowed her glass coffin to be jostled as his servants faltered over some tree roots and she awoke in a blind panic that she promised herself that is would never come to this again, and as those thoughts entered her mind she was sent back to the start of her tale again.
The loss of her mother, the betrayal of her step-mother, the guilt of the Huntsman, the acceptance of the dwarves: it all played out as it always had. The travelling salesman had again tightened her corset to the point of her fainting and the beautiful poisoned comb once more pricked her finger and she needed the Dwarves to revive her, but when the old hag arrived with her perfect, glossy red apple, Snow caught a glimpse of something shimmering in the distance, something that offered her a way to break the endless cycle of heartache that her life had always been. She took the apple, but this final time she smashed it into the face of the old hag, startling her long enough to allow Snow the chance to escape through the portal, saving herself and leaving that damned glass coffin empty and unmade.Sexual Preference:
Strong leaning towards heterosexual, but enjoys flirtation and possible trysts with all genders.Turn Ons :
Romance when it is natural and from the heart, it doesn’t have to be traditional or chivalrous, but it always has to be honest. Intimacy, passionate kisses, the feel of rough stubble or facial hair on her skin, confidence, attentiveness and those willing to adventure.Turn Offs:
Arrogance, self-satisfying lovers, being treated like she will break easily, no personal hygiene, immaturity, humiliation and vanity.RP Thoughts/Plans:
Snow has never been happier than she is now. In full control of her life from what she wears to whom she peruses romantically, is something she is not willing to give up. She can understand and even empathise with the others that long to return to their tales and live the simple or even in some case extravagant lives they once lived, and she would help them find their way back if she could. Snow doesn’t need a Prince Charming or a kingdom; she has self-respect and independence, two things that she was never afforded in her tale: two things she will never give up without one hell of a fight.
