Me: "WELL, gaudy is one name for it. ...Oh wait. You meant the architect....right. I knew that."

Where is the princess named after a flower?
Where is the dragon guarding the tower?
Where is the key in the mouth of a dove?
Where is the joy in finding true love?
Where is the prince on bended knee?
Where is the wedding by the side of the sea?
Where is the happily wedded bliss?
Where is the perfect fairytale kiss?
In a world of dreams of magic and power,
Where fairytale dreams and wishes are ours,
I’ve been dreaming of my soul mate
Tucked behind that twisted black gate.
Reaching out, I passed through the fires,
But all I got was a hand pricked with briars.

What if fairytales didn't always have a happy ending? After all, life only has moments of fleeting happiness.
