Donkeyskin and Mad Hatter (Once Upon A Time) by suburbantimewaster Donkeyskin and Mad Hatter (Once Upon A Time) by suburbantimewaster
This is the Mad Hatter/Jefferson with my OC (technically) Donkeyskin/Hilda Grey.  I was originally going to put Donkeyskin in the hooded robe but it didn't look right with her hair.  I also gave her a sky blue dress because, in the Donkeyskin fairy tale, one of the demands Donkeyskin makes in order to change her father's mind about marrying her was for him to make her a gown as blue as the sky.  I also like how the dresses come out in the second pose much better.  I'm also not sure if I did the Mad Hatter justice.  Once Upon A Time wiki says his hair is brown, but it looks black to me.  He also looks a little whiskery, even in Storybrooke.  Maybe that's just me.  Plus, when I create men on these dollmakers, they never come out right.

Yes, Donkeyskin falls in love with Jefferson when she runs away from her home and father and comes across Jefferson's hovel.  In Storybrooke, Hilda and Jefferson communicate through a telescope and notes.

This took me awhile to come up with because, while the Once Upon A Time franchise is a hot guy buffet, there was no guy that peeked my interests beyond mere lust.  The guys on the show were already attached, or they were too insane for me to bother with.  Then I read the latest Once Upon A Time comic book and fell in love with Jefferson.  Next step was creating an OC for Once Upon A Time which, considering the material, is not an easy task.  Then I thought that there were already many obscure fairy tales and decided to use one of them to create an OC.  I was originally going to go with King Thrushbeard, but I changed my mind and went with Donkeyskin instead.  Then I based her look off of Faith, the donkeyskin girl from Fables: Wolf Among Us.

Thank you, so do I. Though I don't think it's getting a Disney adaptation.

Your OC looks great :) And Jefferson is kind of nice, too, even if he doesn't look like in OUAT to me.
I find the idea of exploiting dark fairytales really interesting, and I'd love to learn more about Hilda. Do you write fanfiction or anything ?
(And you say the boys were taken or insane, but Jefferson is kind of insane, ins't he ?^^)
I like the idea of them communicating by telescopes, though. And how do you plan on introducing Grace in their storyline ?

Thank you!  I'm thinking about picking Morena Baccarin to play her.  Like I said, with men, I utterly fail.

I didn't realized it was exploiting.  I just thought it would fit.  Yeah, I do write fanfiction and the urge to not write this and focus on the fanfiction I've already got is getting weaker.

(Jefferson's more sane than some extreme examples I can think of.  Plus, if you knew the original Donkeyskin fairytale, I don't think Hilda would be completely sane herself.  Still trying to figure this out.)

Thanks and Grace will be present in the story.  Part of what draws Jefferson to Hilda in the fairy tale world is that she's nice to Grace and gets along with her.  Single parents love it when you get along with the kid.  Hilda also meets Grace, or Paige, when she has to go out wearing a gray hoodie (long story).  Part of her conversations with Jefferson are about Paige.  That's all I can say.

You're welcome :) I checked it out, the actress is beautiful (a perfect Donrsih girl, if you're in the ASOAIF fandom^^)
I've got the same problem about doing men in Dollmakers :p

I didn't mean "exploiting" as a bad thing, more like using evrything you can to create your story and have a consistent character. Ah ! Multiple fictions^^ I know the struggle...

(Well, for all I know, her father is the mad one...)

Cool :) I'm looking forward for this :)

What's Donrsih and what's ASOAIF?

*Dornish (I spelled it wrong...)
They are the inhabitants of Dorne, one of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros
ASOIAF stands for "A Song of Ice and Fire", the book series that inspired Game Of Thrones, on HBO.

I haven't seen Game of Thrones yet, so I still don't know what you mean by Dornish girl.

Thank you. Morena Baccarin played a companion (Geisha/Courtesan) on Firefly and I always thought she looked like a princess. Dollmakers are more for creating women than men.

Again, thank you! Think we've got ADD?

(Imagine you're a carefree princess living in your castle until, one day, your father makes moves on you and proposes marriage. In order to get out of it, you have to flee your life of comfort and live in poverty, even going so far as to seek The Dark One (Rumplestilskin) for help. Then, when the curse hits taking away everything you've ever loved, you're back with your incestuous father and you can't escape, having no memory of doing so. No way anyone's escaping something like that without a few mental scars. I think I might have mentally scarred myself just thinking about it, and you telling you all this. Have you read the Donkeyskin fairy tale?)

Thank you.

Thanks for the information :)

Regarding the writing ? yeah, perhaps^^ Or just a very prolific mind :)

(yeah, she must be pretty mentaly-scarred after that..Poor girl :( I read the fairytale when I was a kid, but it must have been a soft version of it....)

No prob. Firefly's one of my favorites.

Maybe.

(I take it, in the version you read, the king doesn't propose to his daughter.)

Fairy tale: www.pitt.edu/~dash/perrault11.…
(I heard about it from Fables: Wolf Among Us.)

Yeah, that would be fun. Mind you, I can be quite busy. So, it might take me a while to respond.
