The Fae Princess
Night had fallen across the land as the girl walked through the forests. The darkness had enraptured everything it touched leaving her in a scene of picturesque beauty. She was surrounded by plant-life; flowers blue, red and black, and trees that shaded her from the glare of the moon.
The moon itself, what little of it shined through, guided her path in the forest. She didn't need it of course. Her race, the Dark Fae, could see fairly well in the night. Some of the elders could even see through pitch-black.
She could feel the wildlife around her; the low growls, the hiss of something in the distance, the occasional glimpse of animal eyes in the darkness. At one point something even brushed up against her legs. It had had soft fur and a long tail. It had retreated before she caught a glimpse of it. It was all so frightening, yet beautiful and exhilarating.
She walked through the forest, barely making a sound. She was clad in a long black ceremonial robe that was embroidered with jewelry, perfect for the occasion mother had told her. A pendant fell from her neck. In the center was a black jewel, a keepsake of her house.
She eventually reached the top of a hill. In the far off distance she could see the Clearing. A green flame basked the area in light and she could see people already gathering.
The girl began to walk down the hill. Her steps eventually became strides and before she knew it she was running. The breeze through her black hair, the feel of the night on her skin, it was the best feeling in the world.
She eventually reached a small pool in the middle of the forest. She knelt by the water and dipped her hands in. The water was crystal clear and cool to the touch. She splashed some ove...

...ked it. He nodded slowly and then took her hand. His own hand hovered above hers and he whispered something. Her hand started to burn violently and she closed her eyes in pain for a moment. When she opened them the keeper was gone. She looked at the back of her hand and saw a symbol burned into it. Then the room began to vanish and dissipate. The stone walls gave way to a new location. After mere seconds had passed she found herself standing in what seemed like the courtyard of a castle.
The door stood before her, tall and black. Still dazed by her recent travels, the girl stumbled towards the door. A wave of nervousness and fear took over. Trembling slightly, she raised a hand to the door and knocked three times. A cloaked figure answered the door, red eyes shone from beneath his hood.
“Welcome, girl” he said in a raspy voice, “We've been expecting you.”

- Fae Myenne Ng’s Bone I enjoy reading Fae Myenne Ng’s Bone. I find her novel easy to read and understand. Although she included some phrases the Chinese use, I find no difficulty in understanding them, as I’m Chinese myself. The novel Bone is written in a circular narrative form, in which the story doesn’t follow the linear format where the suspense slowly builds up and finally reaches a climax stage. Rather the story’s time sequence is thrown back and forth. I find this format of writing brings greater suspense and mystery to the reader.... [tags: Fae Myenne Ng Bone]

- It seems to be a part of society now, that everything offends someone or is potentially problematic to a child. One of those things being, the “infamous” princess culture, that teaches our girls’ to “rely on a man,” or “behave like a princess.” However, these ideas are misguided, the princess culture can actually be a very positive tool to young girls and boys, in many ways. Disney princesses, specifically, were a huge part of my childhood, so it is fitting to focus on them. Each princess was unique, she had her own quirks, goals that she strove to meet, and she searched for her own happy endings.... [tags: Disney Princess, The Princess and the Frog, Love]

- In the story “The Princess Bride” we read of action and adventure, and if you have watched the movie you have a very romantic view of the tale. Before I read the book that was my view, which after reading the book, I found to be incomplete. Fortunately, I have read the book and my view of this adventure has changed from a less romantic one to a more realist thought. I believe that what William Goldman was trying to tell us, in his book version of the story, is that life is made up of reality, sprinkled with what I would call romanticism of the realist....

- The Real Her While reading the story ‘The Princess and the Pea’, Hana does a great job in using irony and confusion to its readers. The story of “Prince” follows an imagination to marry not only a princess, but a real princess. There were enough princesses, but no where close to the one he wanted. The author does a good job to define the plot and breaking it down to real life relationships. To me this is like a beloved story tale. The author creates a very delusional story line with the prince having problems finding a wife.... [tags: princess, fairy tale, royal]

- George MacDonald's The Princess and the Goblin Like many other renowned novels aimed at children, George MacDonald's The Princess and the Goblin draws extensively from the folk tradition in his telling of the tale. Many of the figures presented, such as the nurse and Curdie, have precedent in the tradition, but the grandmother in particular stands out. Archetypally, she is a variant on the Old Man, though she bears the undeniable touch of the supernatural as seen in common folklore - at times she is otherworldly and some of her actions and abilities are of the sort frequently associated with witches....
