J.M. Barrie does a fantastic job of highlighting TinkerBell’s femininity and grace (he calls her embonpoint), but imagine how much sass and adventure must have been in that fairie in order to be Peter Pan’s friend. She did, after all, live with five lost boys, plus Wendy’s brothers, plus Peter Pan, dealing with constant home-invasions by pirates and indians, and unlike Snow White, she didn’t insist on turning the place upside-down by cleaning it! She would have been like a miniature Nymphadora Tonks, from Harry Potter. In short, I think I like her.
