The relationship between the faeries and the dwarfs remind me of the movie, “Metropolis.” It’s a very, very old movie. I saw it awhile back with my dad when it was on Netflix. In the movie, you have this city of tomorrow. The people above frolic and play, totally unaware that there are people underneath the city who make everything work (similar to the dwarfs and the fairies). The fairies even said that they made everything work in fairytale land.
The city in Metropolis is actually a lot like FT. and my boyfriend commented, probably without the fairy dust, FT land would cease to be FT land and probably just turn in Storybrooke.
but yes, the dwarfs are definitely slaves to the faeries, which make me not like them so much anymore. especially, the Blue Fairy. Was it just me or did she seem a bit manipulative when she confronted Dreamy with Bossy?
