A Cinderella Story is a 2004 romantic comedy film. It starred several big names Hilary Duff, Jennifer Coolidge, Chad Michael Murray and Regina King.

The first sequel, Another Cinderella Story starred Selena Gomez, Drew Seeley and Jane Lynch, was released in 2008. Another sequel, A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song, starring Lucy Hale, Freddie Stroma and Missi Pyle, was released in 2011.


The film's plot revolves around two Internet pen pals (Sam and Austin) who finally meet at a school dance and fall in love but their two different worlds keep them apart because Austin is a popular football player and Sam is just a regular nobody. It's of course inspired by the Cinderella fairytale, and thus has several allusions to it.

Main Characters


The fandom is still fairly small and is mainly on FFN and Youtube.

The most popular pairing is the canon Sam/Austin ship.

In fanfiction you can find a lot of OCs, usually a child of Austin and Sam's but not always.
