This is an example of one of my fantasy's, (fairy tale of course - no hunky firemen present), as published in Elle Magazine....
Sitting beneath the cherry blossom tree, a palette of pink petals falling to the ground like confetti. I close my eyes and feel myself falling backwards, weightless.
I am Alice down the rabbit hole, until I land, splash, in a giant cocktail glass bubbling with champagne.

I came across this the other day which is too cute not to share.
For my University Dissertation (many moons ago) I studied the cultural importance and relevence of fairy tales in our modern society - from childhood through to adulthood. I did a little research at a local school, to find out what children think of fairy tales.
These answers are from Boys and Girls 5 years old. (Including the spelling!!)
Q. Who is your favourite female character and why?
A. Snow White. Cos she is beautiful and she got loads of jewellery.
A. Wendy, Cos she goes on all the adventures with Peter.
A. Grettel. Because she figgers out a way for hansel.
Q.What do you think of Prince Charming?
A. He is hansome, rich and he tall.
A. He is a really big show off.
A. He is handsome, but selfish.
Q.What are the best bits of a fairy story?
A. When it all ends up happily ever after.
A. I think the best bits are the killing.
A. I think it must be the magic.
Some of those really made me smile!

"All her shining keys will be took from her, and her cupboards opened, and things a' didn't wish seen, anybody will see; and her little wishes and ways will all be as nothing.”
