Elsanna Week Day 7: Fairy Tale

The Honest Princess

There were two poor sister Princesses of a fallen kingdom living with each other in a small cottage since their parents passed away. Elsa started neglecting her sister because she’s afraid of her own growing romantic feelings for Anna. Not knowing this, Anna got into an argument with Elsa, and the latter angrily ran into the woods.

After not seeing Elsa coming home for dinner, Anna worriedly ran out to find her.  When she couldn’t find her sister for days, Anna cried hard by the river.

Hearing her weep, a god appeared and asked her what’s wrong. Anna told the god that she had lost someone very important to her, she’s now all alone. The god pitied the weeping girl and decided to help.

The god made a man appeared in golden light. It was a prince named Hans. Rich, handsome, well-mannered, kind. Anna was enamored with the prince who treated her like a princess, but she still told the god that this was not who she needed.

The god made another man appeared in silver light. It was a common man named Kristoff. He’s neither rich, handsome, nor well-mannered, but he’s a still a man and willing to protect Anna. Anna found a true friend in him, but she still told the god this was not who she needed.

The god finally made a woman appeared without any glamour like the first two. It was Elsa! Elsa is not a man and she’s also Anna sister, meaning she can’t ever give Anna simple things that even the poorest man can… such as children and a life where people won’t look down on them as a couple. But Anna can’t imagine living without her.

Seeing how Anna disregarded wealth and the safety a man can provide her just so she can reunite with Elsa again, the god was moved by her True Love. He told Anna that had she chosen Hans, she would have been punished for her greed by suffering an abusive two-faced husband. Had Anna chosen Kristoff, she would be punished by suffering a lifetime of never finding passion because she can never fall in love with him.

The god granted the couple Hans’ country, castle, wealth and servants. Hans himself as their stable boy. And Kristoff as their loyal friend. Anna and Elsa became Queens and lived happily forever after with each other.

To the people, wondering why I’ve never had a real boyfriend in my life:

1) I don’t need one nor do I have time for one. I’m still trying to figure myself out. I’m still trying to figure out my goals in life, my dreams. I’m working hard to perfect my passions.

2) Stop saying: “But you look so hot! I don’t understand why the boys aren’t laying at your feet?” As if outer beauty is the only thing that should attract one person to another. If a guy tells me in the first five minutes after we met that I’m beautiful, I immediately write him off my list. Don’t tell me I’m beautiful. Not everything is about my body. Learn to discover the insides, take time to get to know me and call me beautiful after you’ve seen every side of me. How I look should not determine whether or not you decide to come up to me and chat.

3) I’m waiting for my own fine-as-hell fairy tale. The one so many novels are written about. Don’t tell me it doesn’t exist just because you have never experienced it yourself. I believe in it. I am content to wait until that comes to me. So why should I settle for less? 

One month to go!

One month left until release of my upcoming book, The Cobbler’s Soleless Son! It’s a trickster/fairytale style story (and a bit of an erotic romp) starring a bisexual young man with a crush on the local (genderfluid) demon prince, who decides to trick his way into to the demon-only ball to try to get the prince’s attention.

Release date is August 23, and ordering before then gets you 15% off–so only $1.69!

AESTHETIC MEME: [2/4] fairy tales: B e a u t y  a n d  t h e  B e a s t (requested by @xhopelessfangirlx)
I want much more than this provincial life. I want adventure in the great wide somewhere. I want it more than I can tell. And for once it might be grand to have someone understand. I want so much more than they’ve got planned.

MYTHOLOGY: mermaids

  I am a creature of the Fey
Prepare to give your soul away
My spell is passion and it is art
My song can bind a human heart
And if you chance to know my face
My hold shall be your last embrace.

I shall be thy lover…

I am unlike a mortal lass
From dreams of longing I have passed
I came upon your lonely cries
Revealed beauty to your eyes
So shun the world that you have known
And spend your nights within my own.

I shall be thy lover…

You shall be known by other men
For your great works of voice and pen
Yet inspiration has a cost
For with me know your soul is lost
I’ll take your passion and your skill
I’ll take your young life quicker still.

I shall be thy lover…

Through the kisses that I give
I draw from you that I will live
And though you think this weakness grand
The touch of death your lover’s hand
Your will to live has come too late
Come to my arms and love this fate

I shall be thy lover…

I am a creature of the Fey
Prepare to give your soul away
My spell is passion and it is art
My song can bind a human heart
And if you chance to know my face
My hold shall be your last embrace.
