Once upon a time there was a queen, and she cast a glorious curse that gave her everything she wanted…or so she thought. She despaired when she learned that revenge was not enough. She was lonely. And so she searched the land for a little boy to be her prince. And then, she found him. And though they lived happily, it was not ever after. There was still an evil out there lurking. The queen was worried for her prince’s safety. While she knew she could vanquish any threat to the boy, she also knew she couldn’t raise him worrying. No, she needed to put her own troubles aside and put her child first. And so, the queen procured an ancient potion of forgetting. It’s alright! If the queen drinks the potion, she won’t forget her child. She’ll only forget her worries, her troubles, her fears. And with those gone, she and her prince can, indeed, live happily ever after.
