The Happy Hostage by mjOboe The Happy Hostage by mjOboe
Princess Cimorene from Dealing with Dragons... by... Patricia C. Wrede. The series of books is called the "Enchanted Forest Chronicles."

I *worshipped* these books when I was younger. They were vividly created worlds in my mind, I could touch and feel them and I could jump into the mind of which ever character I felt like.

In case you don't know: Princess Cimorene ran away from home because it was boring and she wanted an adventurous life. But what is properly appropriate for a princess looking for adventure? Oh yeah--getting captured by a Dragon... except in Cimorene's case, she gives herself up to one Kazul who basically becomes her employer, her protector and provider. They build a friendship, and Cimorene does NOT want to be rescued from her dragon.

She's a great, practical, headstrong princess. Not afraid to get her hands dirty. (Which is why she's wearing her cleaning clothes and holding a mop handle.

Dude, I LOVED these books as a kid!! She was so badass! Love her practical, no-nonsense attitude. (The books also made me very curious to try cherries jubilee, lol.) Nice expression, it suits her.

You know, I never had an appropriate phrase to describe how much these books meant to me when I was younger... and I never thought about it until you said you *worshipped* them. That's IT! That is EXACTLY how I was.
So thank you.
And this is beautiful.

Haha. Great way to portray Cimorene. I like what you did with her hair. Seems like a sensible way to have it while cleaning, since hers is supposed to be so long, and would most likely get in the way. I also like how you didn't make her strikingly beautiful, but instead a little more realisitc and unique. It works well for her. Great job. :)
