    That's why I don't recognize it as a fairy tale.

    Arthurian legends not fairytale enough for you?
    It's a long way down and everything's broken
    It's crazy what some will do for love

    It's a long way down and the dark road is a serpent
    But you and I are not so different

    You can wish what you want
    Let us guide you home
    But we are not yours
    You better leave the stars alone

    Some give us names
    Some give us chains
    And some just try to give us away in vain
    We might be maidens
    We might be queens
    But we are not made to realize your dreams

    They aren't fairy tales at all. They're (by design) Arthurian Myths/Legends/Stories, not fey. Particularly the more Christian they hew and you don't hew harder Christian than Tennyson. Okay, maybe Malory...

    That's like asking why I don't consider the Robin Hood stories to be fairy tales despite being filled with merry men.

    I'd add a Rogue.

    The rogue is a golden blond -- the colour of wheat just before harvest. It is her best feature; she is not quite as pretty as the rest. She dresses in an understated way though one wrist bears her only jewelry: a bracelet woven from gold wire exquisitely formed to look like grain stalks twisted together.


    She slips along silently and unnoticed. There is much to be discovered when no one thinks anyone is watching and listening.


    She is always quiet and watchful. She bargains hard, and examines every offer carefully. She left her husband behind; he was only interested in ways he could profit form her. The child is safe, from him and any others who would use or abuse him. She watches the warlock's patron is intense wariness muttering how that all such deals end badly.

    Okay but you have to admit she is a little more famous.
