The fairytales the Brothers Grimm and Perrault would have given us - if they'd listened a bit more carefully.
A pair of family-safe same-sex tales - where the Lady gets the Princess.
"Rose and Lily": Rose is the youngest of Sir Roland's three children, and the best beloved. When her father fails to come back from an attempt to rescue the princess from a neighboring kingdom from the notorious and mysterious Black Knight, Rose does not hesitate to strap on her father's old armor, the red faded almost to invisibility, and ride into the dark forest to help him. There she herself encounters the Black Knight. Once she has defeated him, she learns his terrible secret, as well as her father's awful fate. It is left to Rose, then, to rescue Princess Lily from the highest tower of the knight's castle. When she arrives there, she is stunned to find the most beautiful creature that she has ever beheld, cursed to sleep until love's true kiss can wake her.
"Two Candles": On the day when she is supposed to marry Georges, the brewer's son, Brilliante finds her feet leading her out of town and away from that life: across the river and into the enchanted woods, to find a bewitched farm, a beautiful maiden who needs to be rescued, and a new life.
