The Twelve Dancing Princesses

In the_giants_wife I just came upon mention of The Twelve Dancing Princesses.

This is one of those fairy tales I’ve been wanting to use in a story for a while, though I’m not quite ready to do so yet.

One bit of dialogue that will go into that one-day story has been haunting me for years though: “He locked us into our room at night,” one of the princesses explains to me. “The wonder isn’t that we left–it’s that we ever came back.”
