Friday is for Fairy-Tales: The Little Girl Who Was Forgotten

This is a meme hosted by me every Friday.

Today's post is about: The Little Girl Who Was Forgotten (a video)

I want to apologise first for being late with this post. I've had some difficulties logging in my blogger account, but that is over now, or so I sincerely hope.

Now, I discovered a YouTuber recently who makes wonderful animations. His stories are dark, Gothic fairy-tales, in the style of Neil Gaiman and Tim Burton. As I am a big fan of both Gaiman and Burton, and of those stories that are a bit dark in a sympathetic way (namely, focusing on outcasts and such), I thought I'd share one such fairy-tale animation with you.

"The Little Girl Who Was Forgotten" is about a small girl, Emmeline, who went unnoticed by everyone, including her parents. One night, she wished upon a star to have a friend and her wish was granted, but loneliness and lack of love had already created a festering wound inside her heart and tragedy strikes. I think this is a lovely animation. I hope you enjoy it and check out other animations by this person.

This is a wonderful story - I liked how the Emily's emotions were reflected through her "friend". Thanks for sharing this. The ending made me sad, but it is perfect for the message it conveys.

How marvelous. I love the animation and the narrators voice. The story is so sad. Great post!

First I hope your blogger issues are fully resolved-I had some problems last month that really irked me.

Second this was lovely; I will definitely have to check out the other animations too.

It was horribly sad. I loved the illustrations, but again, it was terribly sad. Depressing, but beautiful. I loved it.
