The Step-Mother and the Step-Daughter

From my tumblr.

After looking into Cinderella stories, I came across this really interesting one: The Step-Mother and the Step-Daughter. It starts out looking like a typical Wicked Stepmother type, with the stepmother taking complete control over the stepdaughter, and seems to get worse when the stepmother orders her to steal. But it turns completely around when the king finds the daughter precisely because she stole from him! The stepmother gets her happy ending along with everyone else. It’s really nice to get a good stepmother once in a while.
