Bag Your Very-Own Prince Charming

A guide by Ghanima

Products sampled from this guide:
Throughout fantasy, from the fairy tales of Grimm to the masterworks of Miyazaki, girls have been swept away by Knights in Shining Armor, Princes in Disguise, Wizards Extraordinaire, and all manner of rich and attractive men.
The question is: "How do these seemingly ordinary girls manage it, and how can we follow in their footsteps?"
Well fear not, because nothing is impossible, and here is a how-to guide made expressly for that purpose. Just sit back to enjoy these books and learn prince-nabbing from the pros.

Lesson One: Ella Enchanted
Remember, an unfortunate curse can often be a blessing when it comes to meeting and getting extraordinary guys!

Lesson Two: Howl's Moving Castle (movie),and Howl's Moving Castle (book)
No matter if you are the youngest, oldest, or middle daughter, you are sure to find a soul mate if you have the determination to be true to yourself. Also, the most conceited guy can be softened into a real sweetie.

Lesson Three: The Ill-Made Mute: The Bitterbynde - Book 1
Good looks aren’t always a requirement to catch a dashing gent’s fancy. Look for a man who can see the beauty behind your face, and you are sure to find someone with even more magical surprises than you bargained for.

Lesson Four: The Iron Ring, and The Remarkable Journey of Prince Jen
Keep your eyes peeled for princes in disguise. These types can be a lot of trouble before you finally get to settle down with them, and you may need a lot of wisdom to help them through, but persevere and your result will be better than you could ever have hoped.

Lesson Five: The Darkangel: The Darkangel Trilogy, Volume I
If your special angel is the dark, mysterious type, then do not despair. When you finally overcome your own feelings of low self-worth then your beauty will shine pure enough that even your dream-man will be captivated.
