I was having dinner with my mom when I overheard the waiter in the neighboring section tell his table that he is married to the waitress serving our table.
And my whole brain yelled: “I’VE STUMBLED INTO AN AU!!!”
And then it whispered: “I ship it.”
Guess who finally fixed that section of fic that had been bothering her?
I’m never sure what the moral of The Nightmare Before Christmas is.
The story clearly comes off as a fairy tale, and all fairy tales have morals, even if they’re not morals I agree with. But I’ve always been troubled by the moral of Nightmare because I’m not sure what I should take away from it.
When I was in high school, and apparently in a bleak place in my soul, I really felt the moral was “You can never be more than you are, so you shouldn’t even try.”
Now I tend to lean towards the morale being about people trying to fill the voids in their lives with commercial holiday solutions.
But I just watched it and it gave me a vibe of: “middle aged man has a mid-life crisis tries to redefine his entire life only to realize he already had everything he ever wanted.”
And maybe that’s the hallmark of a good story, that it can mean so many different things based on your life and where you are.
Anyone out there have thoughts as to what the takeaway from Jack Skellington’s story is supposed to be?
