Hi, I hope I'm not bothering you, but I've been looking for a fairytale movie for years with no luck and I was wondering if you could help me... I think it was a mini-series, a girl and a boy fell in love and drank from a magical fountain (there was a fairy there) to see each other in their dreams, but then the boy was possessed by the bad guy and that's all I can remember :( Do you happen to know it? Sorry for the trouble and thank you very much :)

Hi! It’s no bother, I love talking fairytale movies!

And I know what movie you have in mind. It’s an Italian movie Sorellina e il principe del sogno (1996) directed by Lamberto Bava (who also directed Fantaghiro series or The Dragon Ring). The English title of the movie is Princess Alisea (which is kinda stupid since she’s not a princess, but well…). Here is the imdb page of the movie. The movie is on YouTube in Italian, here is the link. I am not sure if there was an English dub.

I loved the movie when I was a kid too! Now I find it rather draggy and cheesy but it still has its charm. Hope the links will help you and let me know if you are looking for anything else.

8 Heroes - [Jack]

"Yes," said he, "beans, but they’re the most wonderful beans that ever were known.If you plant them overnight, by the next morning they’ll grow up and reach the sky. But to save you the trouble of going all the way to market, I don’t mind exchanging them for that cow of yours."
"Done!" cried Jack, who was so delighted with the bargain that he ran all the way home to tell his mother how lucky he had been.

I’m just finishing up all my design work for valor-anthology! Our contribution is a heavily re-written version of Schneeweißchen und Rosenrot that removes the weird marriage as a reward trope and fills it with badass lady sword fighting. I’ll be posting these designs all day as I finish them—I have 3 more to go, and then I’ve got a bunch of wallpaper designs to do for secondlina. I’m having so much fun with this you guys. <3

PREACH

re: Tam Lin retelling--The Perilous Gard takes place in Tudor England and has some of the magic about it. An Earthly Knight is more straightforward, but I found it pretty boring in places.

Thank you for your opinion and the comparison! <3

At length his wife came to his bedside and said,
          my dear lord and king, you told me I might bring away with me from the palace
          that which was dearest and most precious in my eyes - I have nothing more
          precious and dear than yourself, so I have brought you with me
.
Tears rose to the king’s eyes and he said,
          dear wife, you shall be mine and I will be yours
