!Mod Post: Introduction Post - Friending Meme

Alright this has kinda become a template of mine for new communities, more or less born out of tagging one too many of the legendary "Intro Posts" of the olden days from other comms I adopted a co-mod position on. Basically the gist is this: "Instead of having a bunch of Introduction Posts Scattered around the community as it grows (no matter how helpful it is to the post count), I've decided to create one singular Thread that allows members of the com to read and get to each other (if they wish), maybe even make new friends with a common interest. Fill out the application below in the text-area box and post your intro into the comments section below. If you don't want to fill a certain part of the application below, simply remove it.

Favorite Films: Fantasia, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog
In no less than 100 words, please describe yourself (Optional): I am human female. I enjoy Disney, Princesses, film, fairy tales and folklore.
Favorite Version(s) of particular fairy tale: Because of the ever-evolving nature of fairy tales, I like seeing them reinterpreted in many different ways. What I like about a new version of a fairy tale often has more to do with the genre that's interpreting it. Examples: for horror it's Snow, Glass, Apples by Neil Gaiman for Snow White, or American McGee's Alice for Alice in Wonderland; for historical realism I like Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory MacGuire or Ever After for Cinderella; for blending fairy tale worlds you can't beat Into The Woods, The 10th Kingdom or Fables (Once Upon A Time is OK).
Least Favorite Version(s) of a particular fairy tale: I'm disappointed by a lot of adaptations of Alice in Wonderland - the 2009 Burton remake, The Looking Glass Wars series. I get annoyed when I think the work fails to recapture what was great about the original.
