keep me searching for a heart of gold by lady_ragnell
Some of them, the wish-granters, the kindly folk, the godparents, are summoned by desire, or hard work, or anger. It calls them, tugs them, until they can go to help, to see the desire fulfilled, the wish granted. Some of them receive in trade only the sense that they're balancing the scales of the world. Some of them amass favors owed. Some of them make bargains.

Rumpelstiltskin has always found himself called to tears, the quiet ones of despair, the ones that are silent because it never occurs to the one weeping that someone might hear and come to comfort them. It might be better, if he could simply help them without asking anything in return, but his magic always asks for a bargain.

"I guess it makes sense you'd be magical," John said, enjoying the Fox's exasperated growl and annoyed muttering about oversimplification. "Talking fox and all."

"Yes, I'm just bursting with pixie dust," said the Fox. "Shut up now."

The fact of the matter is: Shen Qingqiu will never love Luo Binghe, and that is acceptable - as long as he returns to him.

"TRUE THOMAS lay oer yond grassy bank,
And he beheld a ladie gay,
A ladie that was brisk and bold,
Come riding oer the fernie brae."

Storytime with Shizun and Luo Binghe, It's not Real
Prompt by Dante on discord, “Tangled Au where lbh cries over Shizun’s body and sings the flower song.”

Tonight, Shizun was telling a story of a princess with long golden hair. The princess had hair that could heal any injury due to the effects of a blessed flower, and let out gentle rays like the morning sunshine when the princess sings a special song.

Gender Forum: Trapped: Fairytale in Pratchett and Lackey
Trapped: Fairytale in Pratchett and Lackey
by Dr. Audrey Taylor, Anglia Ruskin University

“People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact, it’s the other way around. Stories exist independently of their players. If you know that, the knowledge is power.” (8)

1Thus begins Terry Pratchett’s Witches Abroad (1991). In Witches Abroad and Mercedes Lackey’s 500 Kingdom Series, specifically the first one, The Fairy Godmother (2004), stories have taken over. Both books look at stories from the other side, they actualise the (sometimes) cliché that stories are powerful, and can shape people. Tales have power of their own, and will shape the surrounding people or circumstances to suit, regardless of what the characters themselves think of it. Taking the concept that stories have power a step forward and literalising that power allows both Pratchett and Lackey to explore story from a different direction, though I would argue Pratchett does so in a more meaningful way, as will be explored later.
