    A piece written for a Flash Fiction Friday prompt on Tumblr, with the theme of "Stay With Me", and inspired by my collection "Grimm Truths".

    Even fairy tales have their fair share of heartbreak, betrayal and abandonment.

    Summary

    If the miller's daughter really is so good a spinning and dying thread, is it boasting to claim she's turning straw into gold? Daughter says yes. Father says no.

    Summary

    Author's summary: Some of them, the wish-granters, the kindly folk, the godparents, are summoned by desire, or hard work, or anger. It calls them, tugs them, until they can go to help, to see the desire fulfilled, the wish granted. Some of them receive in trade only the sense that they're balancing the scales of the world. Some of them amass favors owed. Some of them make bargains.

    Rumpelstiltskin has always found himself called to tears, the quiet ones of despair, the ones that are silent because it never occurs to the one weeping that someone might hear and come to comfort them. It might be better, if he could simply help them without asking anything in return, but his magic always asks for a bargain.

    Summary

    This is a fix-it fairy tale: more kindness, more consent and more inclusivity!
    Because spinning straw into gold and making dangerous trades is all well and good, but the rest of the Grimm’s Rumplestiltskin could really do with some fixing.

    Summary

    My dream that night seems too real to believe, the girl sits on the wheel, gold surrounds her on the floor. A gold string clenched around her fingers and neck, it maneuvered her fingers to touch the twisting straw. Each thin straw wraps around her body tightly and makes her gasp for breath. What looks to be golden tears were seeping from her eyes. I can only watch in silence as she twists in the straw.

    Summary

    I could not help but stare when the King’s Advisor – a creepy wrinkled little guy whose name I didn’t quite catch, accompanied by a pair of silent guards, all wearing black – led me into a secret chamber in the treasury. The room was dominated by the largest and most likely also the most expensive spinning wheel I’d ever see in my life, finely crafted with one of these modern foot-powered mechanisms. That was great, I’d always wanted one of those. The circumstances, however, were another matter entirely.

    (Rated for porn reference - I simply could not pass over this particular crossover possibility - although nothing explicit is happening.)
