But it’s not me these horsemen are hunting. I’m nothing to them. Just a lost girl-child scurrying around the corners of their war.

Rapunzel: The One with All the Hair

Rapunzel is having the ultimate bad day. She’s been stolen from home by an evil witch, locked in an incredibly high tower, and doesn’t even have a decent brush for her hair. Prince Benjamin is in a pretty uncomfortable situation himself. His father wants him to be more kingly, his mother wants him never to leave her sight, and his cousin wants to get him into as much trouble as possible. Plus, there’s the little matter of prearranged marriages… Both Rapunzel and Prince Benjamin are trapped…in very different ways. It’s only when their paths cross that things change.

Sleeping Beauty: The One Who Took the Really Long Nap

It’s not easy being Princess Rose. Especially when a fairy curses you and you find yourself avoiding all sharp objects…and then end up pricking your finger anyway, causing you to slumber for a hundred years or so. And it’s not easy being The Prince. Especially when your mother has some ogre blood and tends to chow down at the most unfortunate moments. A walk in the woods would help, you think. Until you find a certain hidden castle…and a certain sleeping princess.

Beauty and the Beast: The Only One Who Didn’t Run Away

Beauty is sweet, but not a pretty face, and Prince Riley is nice but all arms and legs. Both are used to playing second fiddle to their older (more talented and good looking) siblings. After a fateful meeting in the woods with a witch who turns Riley into a beast, his family has two months to find a girl who will willingly dance with him or the spell will remain.

Seeing this and believing war already to be kindled came now those of the Gnomes who might not fare aboard the ships but whose part it was to march along the shores, and they sped behind the Solosimpi, until coming suddenly upon them nigh the Haven’s gate they slew them bitterly or cast them in the sea; and so first perished the Eldar neath the weapons of their kin, and that was a deed of horror.

—The Flight of the Ñoldor as it is told in the old discarded draft of the Book of Lost Tales.
