Faberry Week 2012: First day- Fairytales (Part I)(Part II)
Princess Rachel Berry grew up in a happy peaceful kingdom. She knew nothing of the wars of the rest of the kingdoms. She was loved by all of her subjects, they’d talk about her beauty and a voice like they never heard before. Soon after her 17 birthday her kingdom is invaded, a betrayal that shocked the Royal Family and therefore wasn’t prepared for. After her mother and father slayed in front of her, she is taken prisoner, to be kept only long enough to be married by their leader and killed. Few escape the city’s walls, and all those that do go seeking help from nearby kingdoms. Help to save their princess.
Queen Quinn Fabray is the sole ruler of her kingdom. Her mother died giving birth to her, the queen was mourned by all, and her father died when Quinn was 12, mourning for him was done only for propriety’s sake. Quinn became queen of a broken kingdom. Her father owed debts she then had to pay, and had started wars that Quinn had to end. Few of her subjects love her, but all know that she is a great queen. One who keeps peace, takes care of her kingdom, a queen with such fierceness no one dares to cross her. When news of a nearby kingdom who had been betrayed and attacked, Quinn remembers the beautiful kingdom she had visited only twice. There was a distant, but happy memory from when she was a child. And another soon after setting aside her childhood, where she payed debts and offered alliance to a king and queen over three times her age. Now years later Quinn decides to keep her word and even go herself, with a few men and women, to save the kingdom. To save the few truly happy memories she had.
Faberry Week 2012: Day 1- Fairytales (Part II)(Part I)
Princess Rachel had grown up dreaming about being a damsel in distress, but when she becomes a prisoner in her own castle after watching her parents be killed, the last thing she wants is to wait. When she escapes she makes for the city walls, knowing she needed to reach another kingdom to beg for their help. With the help of a few of her loyal subjects she gets out of the city and heads to the only kingdom she thinks would help her. She runs into trouble on her journey when she is attacked by drunks in a small town. But it seemed that help met her halfway. When Rachel wasn’t expecting it nor looking for it, she meets her knight in shining armor. Though the armor doesn’t really shine, and it’s no knight but a Queen. When she realizes that Quinn is who Rachel was on her way to see, Rachel tells the Queen and her company what has happened in her beloved kingdom and begs for their aid.
Queen Quinn didn’t recognize the Princess at first, but once she starts talking a mile a minute, Quinn knows it’s her. Her two most happiest memories were of this girl. The first is distant, but she knows that she dreams about it when she wakes up smiling. A girl she played with once, where they swore to be friends forever, Quinn remembers the child’s face and smile. The second memory was one that got her through the frightening and stressing years that followed her being crowned and she began the task of saving her kingdom at the age of 12. She had spotted the girl as Quinn waited for an audience with the King. She had journeyed to their kingdom to settle her father’s debts and offer an alliance. The girl didn’t see her as she walked through her garden, gazing at her precious gardenias and singing. Her voice carried far, so strong at the age of 11, and made any servant who passed by smile and gaze at her as if she was their own beautiful flower. Quinn was in a daze as she watched the girl kneel to examine more flowers, still singing. A servant came in just as Quinn seemed to sway towards the girl in the garden, Quinn looked away quickly, trying not to look like she was some child that had been caught doing something they shouldn’t. She was a queen now. Quinn raised her chin high as she followed the servant, not daring to look back. From listening to the king boast about his beautiful daughter whose voice seemed like magic, she learns the girl in the garden, and her distant memory was the princess, Rachel. She never saw the princess again but her voice seemed to echo in her ears when she got sad or lonely. She dreamed of the girl in her garden.
Quinn tells Rachel none of this. She treats the princess coldly, something she has mastered since a young queen. She tries at least. Whenever Rachel starts showering her with gratitude Quinn states that she had signed an alliance with her parents, and Quinn always kept her word. But when she finds the girl crying, it’s all she can do not to draw her close to comfort her, kiss her. Instead Quinn vows to help Rachel take back her kingdom and throne. When Rachel hugs her, Quinn can’t help but hold her tight.
Their story is told throughout their kingdom. A kingdom that used to be two. One was a peaceful kingdom, a place that always was filled with song until they were betrayed, and the peace shattered. The other kingdom was one that knew of the dangers of the world, one that had been dragged to the shadows by an old king, and had become hardened and cold as his daughter brought them back to the light. Together the kingdoms are strong and knows peace; a place of kindness, but also prepared and safe. A kingdom that is always filled with music and laughter. The kingdom with two Queens.
