The 12 Dancing Princes - Rosencrantz - 12 Dancing Princesses (Fairy Tale) [Archive of Our Own]
In the Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm version of the 12 Dancing Princesses (The Shoes That Were Danced To Pieces), there are these two lines about the nature of the 12 princes that the princesses go each night to see:

The oldest one said, "That is just a joyful salute that they are firing because soon we will have disenchanted our princes."


Their wedding was held the same day, and the kingdom was promised to him following the king's death. But the princes had as many days added to their curse as they had spent nights dancing with the twelve princesses.

This story begins and ends the tale of the 12 princes.

last dance for a ticket home - sophia_sol - 12 Dancing Princesses (Fairy Tale) [Archive of Our Own]
As Helene and her sisters climbed slowly back up the long staircase in the early morning, she tried to summon up the determination and pride she used to feel - but she only felt tired. It had been another long night of dancing, and she could hardly bear to face the thought of doing it all over again the very next night.

The Seventh Dancing Princess - meretricula - Fairy Tales & Related Fandoms, 12 Dancing Princesses (Fairy Tale) [Archive of Our Own]
Prima was, in her own way, rather pleased by the curse. All well and good for her, Septima thought crossly when she heard their father's proclamation regarding the reward for uncursing his daughters; whatever man managed to figure it out would clearly choose either the eldest or the youngest, and as the youngest was twelve, unless he was a disgusting pedophile he would choose the eldest. Meanwhile, Septima would never see sixteen again, and her chances of finding a husband who even recognized her as an individual rather than one-twelfth of one, let alone liked her, were even smaller now that she was one-twelfth of a cursed conglomerate.
