Garden Variety Revolution by DomNX Garden Variety Revolution by DomNX
In the late 19th century Germany, a small faction of gnome rebels formed a revolution against their oppressive gnome dictatorship in order to free themselves from horrendous and life-threatening conditions of forced labor in mines.

After years of civil war and a near-extinction of their race, the triumphant faction lived the rest of their lives in peace and simplicity, tending gardens and going about their business in yards of humans throughout the world. Their bravery will not be forgotten.


This is probably what their recruitment posters would've looked like; except probably in Gnomish...y'know, sometimes even I think I have too much time on my hands...

German Marxist Iring Fetscher once came up with the theory that in the original version of Snow White, there were not seven dwarves but a revolutionary organization of miners with the code name "Seven Dwarves". The Grimm brothers then toned it's political implications down heavily in order to get permission to publish it in autoritarian Prussia.

I like his version. :D

That's kinda cool. Very interesting if it's true.

I think it's also very interesting if it's not literally true. Fairytales are essentially myths, and within the logic of the myth, any interpretation of it is ultimately nothing else but an act of re-telling the myth again in a modified version. Also, I'd like to see a movie based on Fetscher's version. :D

Oh my God, I'm involved in a collaborative cartoon, and one of the current subplots is about a Gnoman Revolution!

Coincidence?! I think not! :la:
