“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

It's either 'Aurora' or 'Talia' - that was the princess' name from the original story 'The Beauty of Sleeping Wood', originally written by Charles Perrault and the more popular, publicly accommodated version of the tale. There are more names for her; variations depending on which version you read, but it's late and I'm sleepy and you can look this stuff up on Wikipedia yourself.
But the important lesson learned here is: Stay the hell away from spindles, kids. Spindles kill. Or...spindles...puts kingdoms to...sleep?
