Two Recs, Fairy Tale Adaptations, Various Pairings  

Fandom:Fairy Tales – Beauty and the Beast
Pairing:Belle / The Beast
Title:Rough Diamond
Link: here @ AO3(registered users only, sorry, but apparently there's a podfic here)
Word Count/WIP?:5,457
Special Rec:23 of 30

Why This Must Be Read:Written for the 2006 Yuletide, this take on the tale of Beauty and the Beast is a brilliant rework that puts Belle in the driver's seat. She is not a daughter sold into servitude, but a witch. And The Beast is still a cursed Prince, but differently so. His “cure” is a lesson – for both of them. There's also a snippy squirrel giving ediorial comments that makes me giggle. All in all, the best version of the story I've read.

Fandom:Fairy Tales – Rapunzel
Pairing:Original Female Character / Original Male Character
Link: here @ AO3
Word Count/WIP?:6,162
Special Rec:24 of 30

Why This Must Be Read:This creative revisioning is an an inversion of Rapunzel, with a kick-ass princess who saves the day, the prince, and the kingdom. Fun, sweet, and smart.

Mods, could I add a “Fandom: Fairy Tales” tag?

Tags added!

FYI, it looks like your first rec has a bad LJ username (the HTML isn't rendering correctly), and the second rec is missing the author's name.

Thanks for the head's up - my html coding on my phone is far from awesome. All fixed now!
