[[WMG: The "Fairy Godmother" is Cinderella's actual mother (which makes the latter a changeling) and that's why she's so eager to help her.]]
This way the story finally starts making some sense, since traditionally the Fair Folk are not ''that much'' into charity... or baptism for that matter.

[[WMG: Cinderella still owns the château--she had it returned to it's former glory and now she occasionally uses as a kind of vacation home (along with Prince Charming, Anastasia and the Baker) to get away from the hecticness of the castle]]

[[WMG: Lady Tremaine [[{{BlackWidow}} murdered]] Cindy's father]]

* Check the release of ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep]]''. She may have only married Cinderella's father for his money and aristocrat status, then secretly poisoned him and made it look like an illness, similar to the Trunchbull in [[{{Film/Matilda}} Matilda]].

** It's jossed in the live-action film, however. Cinderella's father died naturally, which triggered Lady Tremaine's DespairEventHorizon (she's more symptomatic here). But that's an alternate continuity, so the theory is still open (and all but ''confirmed'' in ''Kingdom Hearts'').

** Maybe the whole thing was a fantasy from a paranoid Ella that dreaded the day her father would re-marry to another woman...only for the real stepmother to be the Fairy Godmother?

[[WMG: The reason Cinderella had to put up with their crap:]]

There was a (rather sexist) law on the books that stated that an unmarried woman could not inherit property. Widows, however, could. So, Lady Tremaine got everything and Cinderella got nothing. There may have been a stipulation saying that Cinderella could inherit a good share of her father's wealth upon marriage. Lady Tremaine, being too greedy to share even a little with her stepdaughter, saw to it that Cinderella hardly ever left the house, as even marrying a beggar would mean Cinderella could legally collect her inheritance. Fortunately for Lady Tremaine, Cinderella is not a vengeful person and decided her stepmother could keep the house, money and other properties. (This generosity probably stuck in Lady Tremaine's craw.) Cinderella, however, did insist on taking custody of Bruno the Dog and Major the Horse as she didn't feel anyone in her step-family was responsible enough to care for them.

[[WMG: Cinderella is a Time Lord.]]

First, because someone had to say it. More importantly, her story has transcended generations and as noted, other WMGs indicate she may be a reincarnation or at least relation of other Disney princesses. Some of the more modern Disney princesses also carry Cinderella's character traits (Tiana has her diligence, Belle has her status as an outcast and nobility in spite of that, Anna has her [[AllLovingHero All Loving Heroine]] traits). Therefore, she must exist outside of time, not only in terms of her own story but in terms of the Disney canon.

** Alternatively, there could be no mistreatment because [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Cinderella was a SpoiledBrat.]] Her father married again partially so she would have a mother figure, but Cinderella [[ElectraComplex did not want to share him]] so she mistreated her new family, but claimed the reverse whenever they disciplined her. Many novels and reconstructions from the stepsisters' point of view take this tack.

Cinderella gave clothes to the mice and taught them to talk. Given the [[ExplosiveBreeder high reproduction rate]] of mice, the descendants of these mice spread all over the Earth, probably also teaching the other mice to dress and talk. By the end of the 19th century, they had [[TheGreatMouseDetective a whole kingdom in England]], and [[WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail communities in Russia]]. By the late 20th century, they had [[TheRescuers a global society protecting humans]], [[ChipAndDaleRescueRangers as well as rogue organizations that did the same]]. One wound up in the hands of a human and [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles became much like one]].

* [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation What if...]] The stepmother was just helping a poor orphan girl and Cinderella agreed to all her chores. The day of the ball, she decided to steal the stepsisters' belongings to make her own dress, so they punished her with [[ValuesDissonance what they considered a humane punishment]], and Cinderella later exploited the poor woman by claiming forced labour! After all, she did always say "Yes, stepmother".
