This isn't the same nursery rhymes and fairy tales we were told as kids. Nope. Ever After, a webcomic by S. Healey or "Endling", takes a look at what happens to the characters that have to be placed inside the Everafter Maximum Security Asylum and Home for the Fantastically Traumatized so they can get better and keep the endings happily ever after and inhabitants tinkly winkly.
The story mainly focuses on Little Red Riding Hood, who isn't satisfied with the asylum's hospitality and gets Mind Rape from The Big Bad Wolf. She also wields a gigantic saw and said mind rapes make her go a little Ax-Crazy. Other characters include Horror Struck Mind Raped Goldilocks (but instead of wolves, it's bears), Hansel and Gretel, Little Miss Muffet and... a Giant Spider and more.
Not to be confused with the film starring Drew Barrymore and Dougray Scott.
Provides examples of:
- Ax-Crazy: Little Red
- BFS: Jack's sword is easily as tall as he is.
- Big Bad: There's the Wolf, Humpty Dumpty, and although unconfirmed, probably Dr. Crooked.
- And judging by some of the art, Jack is too.
- Crossover: With fellow Snafu-Comics series, Sugar Bits.
- Eldritch Abomination: The Wolf.
- Grimmification: Insane Little Red, Pyromaniac Hansel, Cannibal Gretel, probability that Goldilocks has multiple personalities, oh, and don't forget Red's massacre.
- He Who Fights Monsters: Jack has apparently fought more than one giant in his lifetime, though how true this may be is up for debate.
- Little Red Fighting Hood: Insane Little Red, armed with the second pig's saw.
- Magic Skirt: Not in the comic itself, but in Sugar Bits, the usual fanservice is avoided.
- Meaningful Name: Dr. Crooked, who is, well, crooked. From his clothes to his teeth to his medical practice.
- The Ophelia: Goldilocks may or may not be one of these.
- Schedule Slip: Even before the hiatus the comic updated pretty irregularly.
- Stepford Smiler: Possibly, Goldilocks
- Split Personality: Also not confirmed, considering the comic has not been updated in a while (getting closer though), but Goldilocks may have these in the form of the bears.
