Love it! I wrote about midnight elsewhere. Here is a beautiful picture of that moment. To summarize, the Fairy Godmother didn't transform Cinderella. The Fairy Godmother just revealed who Cinderella really was. This power is derived from the King. The spell was to break at midnight. But who's to say a new spell wouldn't have taken over. The magic of the palace and the Fairy Godmother is that it reveals who you really are. You are a bride of the King!
