The princess and the ogre
The Princess and the Ogre by Lyle ArynCringe
This book was all over the place, I get that it was written in fifteen days, but Im not so sure thats a good thing. I dont usually like handing out one star reviews but when sexual assault of your main character is so crucial to the plot . . . maybe it should be treated more seriously. Rape and child molestation is a serious thing, using it as a cheap plot device to have a sympathetic MC is gross to me.
Every villian is cartoonishly evil while the love interest is disturbingly innocent and pure. A college student that calls her father daddy and gets twirled through the air when she comes home? I mean uuugh that was so unbearable. Basically your manic pixie dream girl falls for your stong silent type. And ***SPOILERS*** the MC breaks three noses?! In a book that is 150 pages thats just ridiculous.
Once upon a time there was a young prince. He lived happily in the castle with his mother and father, the King and Queen. He loved to see the great processions of knights, all in radiant colors, with their flags and pennants waving as they rode by. Sometimes the armor-master allowed him to shine their vest-plates till they glinted in the sun. When the work of the day was finished, he loved to sit at table and listen to tales of foreign lands.

The Flea is an Italian literary fairy tale written by Giambattista Basile in his work, the Pentamerone. A king raised a flea until it was the size of a sheep. Then he had it skinned and promised his daughter in marriage to whoever could guess what the skin came from. An ogre guessed, and the king had to marry his daughter to him. The ogre took her to his house, decorated by the bones of men he had eaten, and brought her back men's bodies to eat. She wept by the window and told an old woman her plight.
Well, I wrote about fairy tales a few weeks ago, so I figure that I probably ought to put my pen where my mouth is and show you one or two of mine. Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess named Taniel and she, being a beautiful princess, was betrothed to a handsome prince whom she, of course, had never met. Now this prince, Hargrim, was handsome and noble and kind. Taniel knew all of this, yet she was still unhappy because she was to be wed to a stranger. One day Taniel, feeling particularly desperate about her unenviable situation, decided to take a ride through the palace grounds. Mounting her mare, she started off. Two palace guards followed at a respectable distance.
