THE SNOW QUEEN
THE LITTLE MERMAID CONTINUED
When it was the youngest's turn she saw a prince on a ship celebrating. The ship sank, but she rescued him and returned to sea before anyone could catch a glimpse of her. Afterward she yearns to become human and win his love, so she went to the sea witch for help and the witch gave her a potion.
Hans wrote 168 stories but only a certain number became movies, not including Little Clause and Big Clause, There's No Doubt About It, The Girl Who Trod On The Loaf and This Fable is Meant for You.

WHICH ONES DID NOT GET RUIED BY
H.C. Andersen was Danish, but he could not write properly in danish so it was written as it was spoken
His love life, or lack of one, influenced most of his stories
the movie Hans Christian Andersen is a fairy tale about him and is not a true life documentary
He knew Charles Dickens and may have influenced some of his writings
HOW HE IS REMEMBERED :
a plaque at his old house at 67 Nyhavn, Copenhagen
a statue in Rosenborg Castle Gardens
THE LITTLE MERMAID CONTINUED II
The potion rids her of her tail but her legs are painful walk on, for she does not have a human soul, she traded her voice for the potion. She, however, must win his love or she will die.

There's this evil mirror and if you get stabbed with it you turn evil.
Gerda's best friend Kay gets stabbed with a shard and turns "cold as ice". Then, he gets kidnapped by the Snow Queen. Gerda is the purest of heart and goes after her friend.
Gerda can speak to nature (plants and animals), but they were unhelpful with their riddles and plain "I don't know"s so she goes by herself .
THE SNOW QUEEN IV
Finally Gerda meats a raven that tells her Kay was at the palace. When she arrived he was nowhere to be found but the prince and princess took pity upon her and gave her a carriage to aid her quest. The carriage was robbed, but she made a friend, the daughter of the robbers who almost killed her.
Her friend gave her a reindeer and the girl's pigeons told Gerda that Kay was with the Snow Queen. After trips to two old ladies' houses she finally reaches the Snow Queens castle. Kay is still evil causing Gerda to cry, and her tears melt his icy heart. And they lived Happily Ever After
