Skip to content Jerry Mahoney Author of funny little books. Two best friends, Lloyd and Josh, start a blog to encourage aliens to come visit them, promising to show them all the cool stuff Earth has to offer. Junk food, video games, roller coasters. Once upon a Time, in a Kingdom that was just a little twisted oh yeah, and kinda far away , Fairy Godmothers Rule! Elf Kings drool, and a Knight was having a bad time with a Dragon. Too bad he didn't realize the Dragon would be the least strange part of his day As in female - it's right there in the name.
With those divine dimples, killer blue eyes, and hard muscled body, no one's going to be mistaking Tiernan for a female anytime soon, but due to a wish gone wrong, Tiernan is now the only Fairy Godfather in existence. People came rushing from all over the palace and they came in great numbers. When they saw the princess lying in a deep, deep sleep on the floor, they threw cold water on her face, they loosened her clothes, they struck her on the palms of her hands, and they rubbed her temples with smelling salts, but nothing they could do would awaken the princess.
The king, who heard the great commotion from the far end of the palace, remembered the terrible warning of the fairies, and guessing what had happened, came rushing to the tower. There he saw the princess lying in a deep, deep sleep, and he ordered her to be carried into the finest apartment in his palace, and to be laid upon a bed all embroidered with gold and silver. If you had seen her, you might have taken her for a little angel, she was so very beautiful, for her swooning away had not paled her complexion; her cheeks were like roses, and her lips were like sea coral.
Indeed, her eyes were shut, but she was heard to breathe softly, which persuaded everyone that she was not dead. The king commanded that they should not disturb her, but let her sleep quietly until her hour of awaking was come. When this accident happened to the princess, the good fairy who had saved her life by condemning her to sleep for a hundred years, was in the kingdom of Matakin, twelve thousand miles away, but she quickly heard the terrible news from a little dwarf, who had one hundred mile boots, that is boots with which he could tread over one hundred miles of ground in a single step.
The fairy came immediately, and she arrived at the palace about an hour later, in a fiery chariot drawn by dragons. The king took her hand as she stepped out of the chariot, and they both went to look at the sleeping princess. As the fairy was very good at thinking and planning ahead, she realised that in one hundred years time when the princess would wake up, she might not know what to do with herself, being all alone in this old palace. So this was what she did: she touched with her wand everything in the palace except the king and queen , nannies, maids of honour, ladies of the bedchamber, gentlemen, officers, stewards, cooks, undercooks, cleaners, guards, with their beefeaters, pages and footmen.
Immediately, as soon as she touched them they all fell asleep, so that they might not awaken before their princess, and that they might be ready to serve her when she wanted them.
Even the great fires in the ovens of the kitchen, that were just then roasting partridges and pheasants, fell asleep too. All this was done in a moment. Fairies do not take long to finish their business. Now the king and the queen, having kissed their dear child without waking her, went out of the palace and made an order that nobody should dare to come near it. Nobody doubted but the fairy had demonstrated a very extraordinary sample of her power, that the princess, while she continued sleeping, might have nothing to fear from any curious people.
Loving a Fairy Godmother (Fairy Tales & Ever Afters, book 1) by Danielle Monsch
When a hundred years had passed by, the son of a king from another family had gone a-hunting in that part of the country where the palace used to be. Everyone answered with the rumours that they had heard. Some said that it was a ruinous old castle, haunted by spirits. Others, that all the sorcerers and witches of the country used to meet there at midnight when there was a full moon.
Most people believed that an ogre lived there, and that he used take there all the little children he could catch, so that he could eat them up whenever he pleased, without anybody being able to follow him, as only he had the power to pass through the wood. The young prince was all on fire at these words, believing, without thinking things through, that he could save the princess, and pushed on by love and honor, he swore that moment that he would do just that.
Leave a reply
As he rode on his horse toward the wood, all the great trees, the bushes, and brambles gave way to let him pass through. He walked up to the castle which he saw at the end of a large avenue and he went into it. What rather surprised him was that none of his people could follow him, because the trees closed again as soon as he had passed through them.
However, he did not stop; a young and amorous prince is always brave. He came into a wide, wide outer court, where everything he saw might have frozen the most fearless person with horror. There was a most frightful silence; the image of death everywhere showed itself, and there was nothing to be seen but stretched-out bodies of men and animals, all seeming to be dead.
The prince realised when he saw the red faces and pimpled noses of the guards, that they were only asleep; and that their glasses, in which there still remained some drops of wine, showed plainly that they had fallen asleep, while drunk. He then crossed a court paved with marble, went up the stairs and came into the corridor where guards were standing, with their rifles upon their shoulders, snoring as loud as they could. After that he went through several rooms full of gentlemen and ladies, all asleep; some standing, others sitting.
At last he came into a chamber all gilded with gold, where he saw upon a bed the most wonderful sight that had even met his eyes — a princess, who appeared to be about fifteen or sixteen years of age, and whose bright and rosy beauty was quite angelic. He approached with trembling admiration, and fell down before her upon his knees and kissed her hand. You have waited a long time. The prince, charmed with these words, and much more with the manner in which they were spoken, knew not how to show his joy and gratitude.
He assured her that he loved her more than anyone or anything in the whole wide world. Their conversation did not make much sense — they spoke with little reason but a great deal of love.
The Sleeping Beauty
He was more lost for words than she, and we need not wonder at it; she had time to think what to say to him; for it is very probable though history mentions nothing of it that the good fairy, during so long a sleep, had given her very agreeable dreams about handsome princes coming to her rescue.
In short, they talked four hours together, and yet they said not half of what they had to say. In the meanwhile, all the palace awakened, and as all of them were not in love, they felt most desperately hungry after years without a bite to eat. The chief lady of honor grew very impatient, and told the princess aloud that supper was served up. The prince helped the princess to rise. She was entirely dressed, and very magnificently too, but His Royal Highness took care not to tell her that she was dressed in the fashion of one hundred years ago, like his great-grandmother.
She looked not a bit less charming and beautiful for all that. The orchestra played old tunes, but very nice ones, and after supper, without losing any time, the priest married them in the chapel of the castle, and the chief lady of honour drew the curtains. They had but very little sleep — the princess had had too much of it recently, and the prince left her the next morning to return to the city, where the king was anxiously waiting for him.
