3rd September 2015
This story was new to me, men and women are put firmly in their stereotypes in this version of the Beauty and the Beast story. 
Why not print my story out and turn it into a mobius strip. Can you re-tell a story so that it never ends? 

FMS Photo a day: Bedtime
text type:            Never-ending story
Sentence type:     Short
Story:                  East of the Sun and west of the moon

Never-ending story: change the story so that the narrative is circular, then you could try turning it into a mobius strip.
Short sentences: Add drama.  1- 3 words and may have an exclamation mark.

Bedtime is a always a time rules are broken in fairy tales!

(Keep scrolling for the plain text)

The young prince, when playing in the forest, is bewitched by a troll. She is avenging the death of her evil sister. The prince is now a white bear by day. Some years later he meets a peasant who gives him his daughter in return for untold riches.
The white bear and the girl live happily in luxury in his castle. But she’s homesick. The white bear lets her visit home but she must not let her mother speak to her alone. But she does!
The mother thinks the white bear is a troll and her daughter must check at night. She took a candle and when he was asleep she sneaked a peek. He was handsome! Three drops of tallow dripped onto his shirt. He woke! He was angry!
‘It’s over!’ If only she’d waited a year to see him in human form! He returns to the troll in her castle, east of the sun and west of the moon, to be married. His castle vanishes. The girl sets off to find him.
The North Wind takes her to the castle east of the sun and west of the moon. The white bear is to be wed in the morning! He sees the girl and tells the troll his bride must be able to remove the tallow from his shirt. The troll agrees. But trolls can’t clean! Her chosen troll-bride only makes it worse. The girl, however, makes the shirt cleaner even than snow. The spell is broken!

The troll and troll-bride burst in rage. The prince and the girl escape from the castle east of the sun and west of the moon. They marry and have a son.
