    Summary

    All her life, Sakura has been told stories of the family of Nohr, whose heartlessness led to her family's crushing debt. More infamous still are the rumors of the second son of Nohr, known only as the Creature.

    "All right - I can see you are impatient. I will be brief." The white-haired man paused. Sakura fought the tremble at her fingertips as he suddenly smirked. "If you offer your youngest sister to the youngest son of the Nohr, all debts will be forgiven."

    Summary

    The Citadel was a masterpiece in glass and steel, the sheer scale of it overwhelming. It reflected back all the lights of Insomnia, tiny twinkling points of brightness that glittered in the dark. The plush red carpet that stretched away into the high arc of the entryway ferried in couples, stunning ball outfits as brightly colored as the feathers of an exotic birdbeast.

    And Prompto stood there, at the base of the steps, gaping up at it all like an idiot.

    It took him five solid minutes before he could convince himself to move, and with each step, he became more certain that he was dreaming. No place this beautiful could actually exist. There was no reality in which someone would hold the door wide for him and say, "Right this way, sir."

    Summary

    The only Seafolk allowed near the surface were the stealthiest, strongest warriors. Vex'ahlia was neither of those, so she only dreamed of being allowed near it. When her brother gains permission to go to the surface, he promises to take her so she could realize her lifelong dream, unbeknownst to the fact that she had been there once before.

    Percival had never felt so lonely. Ever since the death of his family, the pressures of the Council for him to wed and produce an heir are growing, and his only relief from the strains of leadership are his nightly walks on the beach near Whitestone Castle, hoping to sight the beautiful mermaid he helped one night years before.

    Above the water for the second time, Vex'ahlia can't help but sing, ignorant of the human Prince nearby.

    Summary

    Perhaps a young ingénue will come across a beast, see past the facade to the inner beauty, and fall in love. Perhaps a young ingénue will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and fall into a deep sleep, only to be rescued by a gallant prince with luscious hair and eager lips.

    Well, our tale contains no ingénues, although there is a beast, as well as a princess with quite luscious hair.

    And lips. The lips will play a rather important role.

    (Or, a Beauty and the Beast retelling in which the Beast gets his comeuppance and Mrs. Potts gets the girl.)
