Growing up in the nineties, something CC associates with childhood are princesses. On the whole, most princesses are two dimensional characters with very little development...

She began to imagine a different world... A world where princesses were not in a magical fairytale land, but instead, resided in the modern world... Without the comfort and reassurances of a kind Disney animal side-kick or a determined Prince to save the day, perhaps Sleeping Beauty would be a homeless drug addict? Jasmine, a social-media obsessed Kardashian-wannabe? Snow White, a compulsive, yet manic depressive?
