There is one particular fairy tale that I've been trying hard to relocate for about three years now. Here's what I remember:
- there was a princess trapped in a castle at the edge of the ocean
- she had a mermaid friend
- the mermaid really wanted the princess to hook up with her brother
- mermen are really ugly
- when the princess wasn't interested, the mermaid started flooding the palace
- there was a prince around, too
- he might have been enchanted to be a bird, possibly a blue one
- the princess might have been a painter?
If you have seen this story, please contact me via the comments.
(Seriously guys, I'm desperate. This has haunted me for the better part of a decade.)
