[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/EllaEnchantedBookCover.JPG]] ''Ella Enchanted'' by Gail Carson Levine is a TwiceToldTale based on the FairyTale "Literature/{{Cinderella}}". At birth, Ella, the protagonist, is given the "gift" of obedience by Lucinda, a fairy. Thus is Ella BlessedWithSuck. She is forced to obey every direct order given to her, no matter what. Eventually Ella learns to fight the curse, delaying her obedience, but she becomes sick when she tries. She also fights the curse by [[LiteralGenie not doing exactly what is wanted when the wording of an order is not clear enough]]. The basics of "Cinderella" are in Ella Enchanted: There is a MissingMom, then later a WickedStepmother. There is a DisappearedDad, as Ella's father is often away on business. (The closer the book gets to the climax, the more Cinderella plot elements are included.) A [[TheFilmOfTheBook film adaptation]] based (loosely) on the book was released in 2004. ''{{Fairest}}'' is a loose, meta sequel. According to some it is actually a companion, due to the timing. ---- !!The book contains examples of: * AbusiveParents: Ella's father Sir Peter, of the neglectful variety. Dame Olga also counts. * ArrangedMarriage: [[spoiler:Ella's father tries to set her up for one with an old duke. It doesn't push through once her father finds out the duke isn't as rich as he thinks.]] * BewareTheNiceOnes: Charmont. In one of his letters to Ella, he admits to ruining his tutor's career when he was younger just because the man made his sister cry. And years later, he ''still'' resents the tutor. * BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Charmont and his knights saving Ella from the ogres. Subverted slightly by Ella aiding the attempt.]] * BigEater: Dame Olga and her daughters. * BitchInSheepsClothing: Dame Olga. When we first meet her, she seems nice enough, at least compared to her daughters (especially Hattie). But once she marries Ella's father and discovers that he had no money, she quickly turns into the cruel, abusive, petty stepmother we know from the Cinderella tale, making Ella a slave in her own home and tormenting the girl after her father leaves for business. * BlackBestFriend: Areida. * BlessedWithSuck: ** Ella. Almost literal example! ** Several, in fact. Lucinda's "blessings" tend to focus on making their recipients better children, where "better" is dictated by the sort of book which declares that the proper behavior for a child is to sit quietly and behave like a miniature adult. She's always baffled when the recipient is unhappy with their [[IncrediblyLamePun Stepford Life]]. * BreakHisHeartToSaveHim: [[spoiler:Ella tries this with Charmont, knowing that if they do get married she'll only put both him and the kingdom in danger because of her curse.]] * BroughtDownToNormal: Briefly done to [[spoiler:Lucinda herself so she realizes the complete ''horror'' of what she's done to everyone. Unfortunately, she can't break Ella's curse, or anyone's for that matter, because it's a matter of willpower.]] * ConMan: [[spoiler:Ella's father tries selling land that doesn't belong to him; getting found out and having to pay off the massive debt leaves him and his daughter nearly penniless.]] * CostumePorn: Lampshaded, when Ella sees Dame Olga's letter to her daughters, which mostly describes her clothing and her social calendar. She only remembers she was writing to them by the last paragraph. * CunningLinguist: Ella and her natural proficiency with languages. * CurseEscapeClause: [[spoiler:Not until the very end. The curse is broken once Ella disobeys an order, which she is only able to do, with great difficulty, when the stakes are high enough. Merely saving her own life isn't sufficient, but when it comes to the future of the man she loves ''and'' the entire kingdom...]] * EvilStepmother: Dame Olga. * ExactWords: Ella learns to do this to work around her curse. * FairyGodmother: Deconstructed with Lucinda, who goes around giving BlessedWithSuck "help" to people who don't want it, and Mandy, Ella's actual godmother, who it turns out is also a fairy but is much more inconspicuous (and thoughtful) about the help she gives. * GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul: [[spoiler:Ella, at Lucinda's command. Not helped by the elven mushrooms she eats later, making her shamelessly flirtatious towards the old duke her father wants her to marry. When Mandy snaps her out of it later, she's horrified.]] * GoldDigger: A mutual attempt with Ella's father and Dame Olga--except that Dame Olga doesn't know that Sir Peter doesn't have any money until it's too late. * GreenEyedMonster: Hattie is jealous of Ella because she's brave, smart, and pretty. It's mainly the reason why she treats Ella so miserably. * GrewASpine: A concrete-metaphor version, with Ella's compulsion to obey orders that she has to overcome. * HatesSmallTalk: Not exactly ''hate'', but all the Ayorthaians that Charmont stayed with for a year were like this. Not through snobbiness, either; it's just they're more contemplative, more appreciative of silence, and far too polite. Much to Charmont's displeasure. * IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Olive. She bullies Ella and orders her around, but doesn't seem to have any real malice toward her the way Hattie and Dame Olga do. It is strongly indicated that she has some type of mental or social disability, and she seems to spend a lot of time getting looked down on or dismissed. The fact that she orders Ella to talk to her for hours on end implies that she is probably very lonely. * {{Irony}}: Being blessed with "obedience" led to Ella being more stubborn. * KarmaHoudini: Arguably, [[spoiler:Ella's stepfamily. While Hattie never marries the prince (or at all), neither she nor her the rest of her family are punished for abusing Ella.]] * KickTheDog: Done to Ella a lot by Dame Olga, Hattie, and Olive, as well as the extremely snooty governesses at the girl's academy. * MasqueradeBall * MissingMom: Ella's mom dies of illness early in the book. * MoreThanMindControl: Ella's spell. * MotorMouth: Charmont's knight who takes Ella to the giant's wedding. * OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Ella is never shown [[spoiler:reclaiming her mother's necklace from Hattie. She does recover it, but it's only a quick throwaway line in the epilogue.]] * {{Omniglot}}: Ella is fluent in Kyrrhian, and knows more than enough Ayorthaian, Gnomish, Elvish, and Ogrish to get by. * OurElvesAreDifferent: Our elves strongly resemble plants and place extreme value on beautifully crafted objects. * PluckyGirl: Ella. * PrinceCharming: Levine plays on this: the prince's name is Charmont, which is a letter away from 'Charmant,' the French word for 'Charming.' Playing it further, he actually hates his full name and only likes to be called "Char". * RichBitch: Dame Olga and her daughters Hattie and Olive. * RoyalBrat: Hattie and Olive. * RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Prince Charmont readily goes out to hunt ogres with his knights to protect the citizens of his kingdom. * ThisIsMyNameOnForeign * TongueTied: Ella is ordered not to tell anyone about her curse. * TwoPersonLoveTriangle: [[spoiler:When Charmont falls for Ella's masked alter ego at the balls.]] * WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Specifically, "what ''did'' she see in him?" Ella asks Mandy this about her parents, since they seemed like such complete opposites. * WickedStepmother: Kicks in with Dame Olga almost immediately after the marriage. ---- !!The film contains examples of: %% "Adaptation Decay" is only for in-universe examples. * BlackBeltInOrigami: Ella encounters {{Mooks}} bullying the elf Slannen. After he (semi-unintentionally) orders her to help him, she threatens the {{Mooks}} with origami. Unfortunately for her, one of the guards knows what origami actually is. -->'''Guard:''' Paper folding?\\ '''Ella:''' I was hoping you wouldn't know what that was. * GroupieBrigade: Prince Char * IllegalGuardian * InNameOnly: The movie of the book features Ella being cursed with obedience...and, aside from a few shared settings and characters, that's about it. * {{Jerkass}}: Lucinda not only [[BlessedWithSuck Blesses Ella With Suck]], when Ella pleads and begs for her to remove the "gift", Lucinda is offended and refuses, declaring arrogantly "everybody loves my gifts". She not only shows no interest in why Ella would want it removed, but while Ella chained herself to a tree to try and avoid [[spoiler:obeying Edgar's order to kill Char]], Lucinda frees her and orders her to go to the ball. She's practically a ''villain'' in her own right. * KickTheDog: Hattie and Olive forcing Ella to steal a number of expensive items from a market stall, get her arrested, have her blame Areida for it, then have her go to the door when she comes to visit, tell her that she never wants to see her again and tell her that she could never be friends with an Ayorthian. Fortunately, Areida forgives Ella by the end. * LargeHam: Cary Elwes was clearly enjoying himself a bit too much. ** EvilIsHammy * LoopholeAbuse: Ella has to obey ''any'' command given to her, even if she is the one giving it. She escapes the curse this way at the end by commanding herself to stop being obedient. Apparently, it had never occured to her to try this before. ** Possibly it wasn't an option before Lucinda (after Ella begged her to remove the curse) told her, "Get out of it yourself." * MistakenForJunkie: Jokingly. After rescuing Ella from ogres that want to eat her, Char asks Ella if she gets a kick out of near-death experiences. At that point in the movie, these included nearly getting run down by a carriage (Char inadvertently put her in that situation by telling her to stay put while he goes and gets her bag, leaving her stuck in the middle of the road with a carriage bearing down on her). * MrFanservice: Prince Char. In one scene he's removed his shirt and vest to allow Ella to put a bandage on his arm, leaving him in nothing but leather pants. * ObviouslyEvil: Prince Edgar, with his black and red clothing and his snake. It's a wonder that people trust him. * SelfDisposingVillain: Carey Elwes' character catches the IdiotBall in the most blatant ([[RuleOfFunny yet]] [[LargeHam hilarious]]) manner possible when he [[spoiler:puts on the crown he himself had previously poisoned in order to murder his nephew at the coronation.]] * SoapboxSadie: Ella and Areida become this. * SuddenMusicalEnding: "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" in a CrowdSong to end the film. * TinyGuyHugeGirl: Slannen the elf falls in love with a giantess. * TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:Prince Edgar.]] * UnPaused: Ella is ordered to freeze by the guards as she is in mid-leap over a wine barrel. When the order is countermanded, she crushes it beneath her. ----
