    Summary

    She’d had a bad feeling about that spindle.

    Princess Kara Zorel only meant to close her eyes for a minute. She opens them to find that over two decades have passed for everyone but her. She’s become the heroine of a legend, known far and wide as Sleeping Beauty. And her baby cousin isn’t a baby anymore.

    In fact, he’s the king. The well-meaning but far too traditional king, who has no idea how his cousin awoke without true love’s kiss. But now that she’s awake, he decides the best thing for her to do is marry the aforementioned true love before the kingdom starts asking questions.

    But Kara has other ideas. Accompanied only by her almost-sister Alex, who has inexplicably turned into a frog during her absence, Kara sets out on a quest for adventure, to prove that a princess doesn’t always need a prince. She’ll come across a variety of colorful characters, rescue damsels (and a few boys) in distress, and maybe, just maybe, find out who was behind that sleeping curse to begin with. And who woke her up from it.

    (Otherwise known as: Kara is Sleeping Beauty and everyone else is other fairytale characters and they all mix with each other in a giant web of weirdness. A “choose your own ship” story!)

    Summary

    Lan Wangji, the beautiful and noble prince of GusuLan, has been cursed by the evil Yiling Patriarch Wei Wuxian! He and 33 cultivators that went to confront Wei Wuxian were all cursed into an endless sleep, but the Yiling Patriarch has kidnapped the prince and holds him in the highest floor of his palace lair. Will the four kingdoms be able to rescue the prince, or will Wei Wuxian have his evil way with him?

    A Sleeping Beauty AU with Lan Wangji as the young princess, Wei Wuxian as Malificent, and Wen Ning as the dragon who would very much so like a break from all this.

    Summary

    "Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young princess lived in a shining castle. Although she had everything her heart desired, the princess was deemed quick tempered, resentful. Amongst the people she was mostly described as cold-hearted. Throughout her childhood some whispered about her never having been in possession of a heart in the first place. While her mother loved the princess dearly, her own father jealously wanted his wife’s affection solely for himself. From the day of their daughter’s birth he had despised his own child."

    Summary

    A tale of mistaken identities, fairytale foolery, and the power of true love’s kiss.

    (Or. a loose retelling of ‘The Goose Girl’, with some decidedly CR twists.)

    Summary

    “A-Let me play something else for you! I swear I’m a master.”

    Finally breaking the hold, he stomped onto the gravel path and turned one last time. “What you are is a massive pain. Now leave before you’re the next thing split in two!”

    Oikawa knew how to pick his battles. And he knew that today he wasn’t winning the point. However, the war was then initiated in his mind, whether the other wanted to play a part or not didn’t matter. What did matter was that with or without the pipe, he was going to make the lumberjack admit defeat.

    -

    Oikawa's magic pipe has been passed down throughout the lineage and with it he's able to make people more likely to give him things like food and jewels. However, it seemingly doesn't work with one stubborn axeman named Iwaizumi. One way or another, Oikawa's determined to get to the bottom of it and most of all: win.

    Summary

    Spinel puts a hand over her face and starts cackling manically at the realization. “Hah. I... I really am in love with you...!”
    She says as she stares directly to the ground, dropping her scythe after holding it against Steven’s neck. The metal clanks against the battlefield floor. He stares at her, dumbfounded.


    Spinel and Steven had simply been taking a stroll across the battlefield, until Spinel suddenly becomes violent and attacks Steven.

    Summary

    Water and fire were never meant to mix, doomed for one element to dominate the other, their love was the same. Doomed and unyielding. Like fire it was all-consuming and like water, easy to be swept away.
    Her love restored something in him, ignited a flame in, raw and powerful. The flame of a leader.
    Their love was a threat. Unrest grew within the Fire Court. Greed, Lust, and Envy; a deal was made and the lover’s lives were changed forever.
    “He rose with the sun”, by day the banished prince would become a golden dragon.
    “She rose with the moon”, by night the Waterbender would transform into a Moonfish.
    The two never allowed to see one another again, to hold one another, until the day the sun and the moon stood as one. Only then can the curse be broken.

     

    A retelling of the legend of “Ladyhawk”

    Summary

    You know Beauty and the Beast. You know the story of Hades and Persephone. This tale is neither the myth nor the fairy tale, but both. There will be magic and a curse, gods and godesses both wicked and benign, a mysterious palace, a talking fire and a three-headed dog. In this story, true love's kiss might not be enough to save it all.

    Summary

    There is a beast in the woods, or so the whispers say. A beast with glowing eyes, sharp horns, a thousand teeth. A beast that has been killing children.

    A young huntsman, Bellamy, has been afflicted with a fatal curse. There is only one way he can save himself: by slaying the beast and taking its heart to the spirits of the woods. He doesn't expect to find the beast keeping a young man prisoner in an enchanted castle, a young man who offers Bellamy his help in exchange for freedom.

    But these woods keep many secrets, and nothing is ever quite as it seems.
