As a group project for my creative writing class, I (as well as 4 group members) collaboratively wrote a collection of short stories called Tales of the Misrepresented.
The aim of this project was to challenge a dominant narrative within a certain community and so we decided to challenge Disney narratives and lessons.
These stories all take place in a psychiatric ward and my character is based off of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. In my story she grapples with toxic relationships related to her illness as she learns to recognize healthy and unhealthy relationships. With hints of magic and other Disney-inspired characters, are there such things as happy endings?
