There once was a farmer and his wife who wished more than anything to have a child. But alas, a child never came to them. Their tiny cottage had a small window which looked out over the most beautiful garden full of the loveliest flowers and vegetables. There was a high wall around it, for this garden belonged to a sorceress known for her power.
One day the wife stood at the window looking out into the witch's garden planted full of the most beautiful lettuces. As she looked, she began to long for the rampion she spied. Days passed and her longing increased, her limbs growing thin and her skin pale. Alarmed, her husband asked, "Dear wife, what is the matter?"
"Ah...I shall die if I cannot have that rapunzel." And her eyes grew distant and dreamed of the garden. Fearful for his wife's life, the farmer resigned himself and stole into the night to b

Light blue eyes were fading away, desperate to see, to cling to life just a little longer, so that she may say goodbye...
" Merida, please don't die!" The Queen Elinor begged through her sobs, holding her daughter close to her heart!
"Mother, is everyone safe?..." The princess asked weakly.
She could feel her life slipping away from her.
She was not long for their world......
" Yes, my darling, you were very brave, you protected your kingdom, as a princess should, and..." She trailed off, struggling to swallow her sobs
" ..You fought like a true warrior." Elinor replied in almost a whisper,
Her heartbeat was slowly coming to a stop......
" Good, I love you, mother, I'm sorry that I couldn't..." Merida trailed of as she breathed her final breath,
Her whole body fell slack in her mother's arms.
And all the noble Queen could do was sob, and mourn the loss on her dear daughter.

Snow White had waited in this same garden for another princess but Eilonwy hadn't really formed and then she had faded from her arms, not enough people have believed. Snow White still had nightmares about that.
What had happened to Giselle, had been beyond strange, Cinderella would get all jumpy whenever men in dark suits and briefcases wandered around the park. Mulan shivered in the warm sun.
It was hard to meditate as she waited, not that she was good at it, she'd much rather poke around the gardens and rides and shops. She was dressed in her traditional clothes but had her sword on her hip, the synopsis had told them enough that it might be necessary.
There was a cloud of light and the echoing sound of applause and cheering, people were believing; a girl in a green dress and wild red hair began to form and she did indeed have a bow, arrows and a

It was early November, the time Jack had officially instated as the beginning of winter, a smile spreading across his face as he spread his magic through the land.

As a gentle snowfall fell across the village, Jack couldn't help but stop to pay his respects to the mosaic in the village square-- the generous king and queen of the kingdom with their long-lost daughter in their arms. Frozen fog left Jack's lips as he heaved a sigh for the missing princess.

I don’t want saving,
I don’t want ”friends”;
I just want all ends
To be met in red.
I hate how plain my skin is,
How it should be painted;
I’m the addiction’s harlot,
I do as it must dictate
And when it tells me to seal my bloody fate;
I bloody well will.
I’m too full of blood,
I need to let some out.
But know this isn’t a shout
This is me coping
With how I’m hoping
Nobody’ll care when I go.
Cutting isn’t for attention;
It’s for a brief suspension
Of everything else.
It is mine and I’m its,
It doing as I want
And I its slave
Until there’s nothing left to save.

Half as much as I do breath.
Because I’d be lying

To put my worthlessness away

Yet it won't let me leave
Or grant me a reprieve

Hopelessly trying to get these memories out of my head.
I toss and I turn.
When will this no longer burn?
I desire some passion and for these sweet little dreams,
To be something more than teenage love schemes.
Will you come back home and sing me to sleep.
Maybe those things could help you leap,
Over the moon and way past the stars,
Finding a galaxy we can name ours.
We can live there and rule all the land.
And don't worry my dear, we'll be hand in hand.
There'll be no nightmares, no more goodbyes.
Just tons of laughter and sweet lullabies.
I'll be your Queen, if you'll be my King.
Don't fester my dear, I'll need no precious ring.
I'm eternally yours in nightmares or dreams,
Even reality no matter what it seems.
I will always need you to help my eyes close,
To keep away thoughts filled with low blows.
No matter what world we are in, one thing will always be true,
You're always my hero and I will always love you.
