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.

keep me searching for a heart of gold - lady_ragnell - Rumpelstilzchen | Rumpelstiltskin (Fairy Tale) [Archive of Our Own]
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.

Shouto knows he can't keep his secret forever; Izuku is clever, and Shouto's Archfey father is relentless. If the truth is revealed, he has everything to lose: both his freedom, and his one chance at happiness.

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.
