What if Rapunzel had never been traded for salad and lived a happy life at home?

She would probably have siblings with long hair galore.  She and her sisters (and hippy-haired brothers?!) would prance around with an entourage of soldiers and servants, valets and grooms armed to the teeth with dustpans and brushes, hairpins and brooms.  They would gossip deep into the night while braiding each others' hair, fight over their favorite dresses, and, after terrible tantrums, threaten to snip away a lock of another's hair whilst she sleeps unaware.  Of course, they would never go through with it.  Idle, harmless little firecrackers.
Hopefully, by the fourth child, their mother will learn not to covet her neighbor's parsnips.

This week's respite was inspired by a day spent with the Shin sisters, by, of course, The Art of Tangled, and by a sentence I read in the last Harry Potter book: "It was in Godric's Hollow that, but for Voldemort, [...h]e might even have had brothers and sisters."
