A Fairy Tale for the Modern Princess…

22 Oct

Hello my darlings!

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, ( like that’s anything new for me?) and so I’m a little late in getting my post up.

I consider myself a fairly modern woman and I ran across something this morning that  made me smile.

We all want the “Fairy Tale”… the happy ending, if you will.

As writers, we have the ability to create as many happily-ever-afters as we want.

Having said that, I also came across a HP Fanfic titled  “The Headmaster’s Wife” that provides a TON of smutty happiness (and a great story as well!) for quite a few characters.

If you’re interested, here’s the link:

Link to “The Headmaster’s Wife”

Also… check out Shadowling Manor for news, teasers and excerpts from the “Passion’s Portal” novels from Ellora’s Cave. This is the place where the fairy tale meets the modern woman!

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the delightfully snarky take on the traditional “Frog Prince” fable below.

Wishing everyone a Happy Monday!

    Thank you so much for mentioning my little (well it’s not that little and it’s getting bigger) story. I’m really touched. S x

      Thanks for stopping by!

      As I’ve said before… I LOVE that story & can’t wait for the next chapter.

      A question for you…

      Do you think everyone would be so sympathetic toward the Severus Snape character if he’d NOT been played by Alan Rickman?

      I read the books. Saw the movies and now that it’s over, I kinda have to wonder. Snape was my absolute favorite character in the series and I think Rickman is a brilliant actor. Looking back, I think that was a huge part of the appeal.

      What’s YOUR opinion?

      Love to know…
