2 Works in William (Swan Princess)
"Arrange the Marriage!"
"What? You're all I ever wanted. You're beautiful!"
"Thank you. But what else?"
"Is my beauty all that matters to you?"
"I, um, what else is there?"
A Prince's inability to connect with his love sends himself, the woman he loves and an entire kingdom into chaos.
A rewriting of the animated Swan Princess movie because the story had potential to do so much better, and apparently I've decided I'm going to be the one to fix it.
Long ago, she refused his advances and because of that, she was taken away. The land became frozen. The inhabitants of the land called it the Curse of the Winter Swan. Many have tried breaking the curse, but every attempt failed and soon the Frozen Land became too cold to live in, all the inhabitants of the kingdom fled to other lands.
Centuries passed and the Curse of the Winter Swan, and everything associated with it all, but disappeared, becoming a bedtime story to children. It is said that no relatives of the cursed princess exist. Save for a young maiden named Skyla. Skyla winds up in the kingdom of Arisia where she meets crowned Prince William and they soon fall in love. As their love blooms, they marry, becoming the next rulers of Arisia.
It isn't long before Rothbart tries taking over the kingdom and Skyla dies in childbirth, leaving two princesses of Arisia, Odette, and Leda. Rothbart steals one of the twins away and William, facing an inevitable war with another kingdom, reaches out to an old friend of Skyla's, Queen Uberta, whose own kingdom faces a similar threat. Hoping to make their kingdoms one, they spend 18 years preparing Princess Odette and Prince Derek for a political marriage.
