Cinderella Story

So I realized a couple of days ago that the plot of Novel #1, that reeking pile of unpublishable tripe, is basically the plot of Cinderella.

OK, so my Cinderella has mean step-brothers, instead of step-sisters, and my Prince Charming is a drug-addict. I've still got the absentee father and the evil step-mother who makes Cinderella's life miserable. I've even got a grand ball and a sorta fairy-godmother (well, she really Cinderella's martial arts master, but same difference).

The only thing I'm missing is the goddamned glass slipper.

I'm not sure whether to be horrified or amused by this.
