Unfortunately, [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen his mother]], who has ogre blood, is jealous of the prince's new wife, and when the prince leaves on matters of state, she demands to have the princess's young children, and then the princess herself, killed and cooked for her supper. The cook manages to hide the unfortunate family and fool the queen with various cooked animals instead. This all comes to naught when the queen hears the princess and her kids at the cook's house, however, and she prepares a big pot of nasty, venemous creatures to kill them. Fortunately, the prince arrives home [[BigDamnHeroes just in time]], and the queen falls into the pot of nasties, dying a KarmicDeath and leaving everyone to live HappilyEverAfter. (In an alternate ending, the queen, thinking wife and kids are safely dead, realizes her son may not be so happy about that and tries to pass herself off as the princess. The prince works it out by [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything asking the marriage bed.]] Queen is duly put to death and prince is reunited with princess and kids.)

* DreamingOfThingsToCome: In the Perrult version it's implied that the good fairy was GenreSavvy enough to give the Princess some dreams of the Prince that would come to wake her up, showing her what kind of guy he was and all.

Once upon a time, a little girl was born that was exceptionally beautiful. Due to jealousy, a wicked witch wanted her dead. She ended up being raised in fosterage in the forest by magical dwarves, but eventually the queen found a way to poison her and put her in a coma resistant to aging. Eventually, Prince Charming showed up, kissed the girl and woke her up, and slew the evil witch.

But, then, this article isn't about "Literature/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs"...

A king and queen, very desirous of a child, finally succeed in giving birth to a little girl, and invite all [[TheFairFolk the fairies]] they can think of to celebrate. Unfortunately, they [[RevengeSVP forget or otherwise ignore one,]] who shows up at the christening anyway and {{curse}}s the girl to one day prick her finger on a spindle and die. One of the other fairies succeeds in softening the curse, to merely a long sleep.

The king and queen order all the spindles in their kingdom to be burnt, but manage to miss one in the castle itself, towards which the teenaged princess innocently makes a beeline. She finds a woman sitting there spinning, who in most versions is the evil fairy in disguise, but in some she is simply an innocently unknowing old lady. The princess is fascinated and asks if she can try spinning. Predictably, the moment she picks it up, the curse comes into effect, and she, accompanied by the rest of the castle, falls into a deep sleep.

* RevengeSVP: The wicked fairy takes not being invited to the baptismal celebrations rather personally.

* RevengeSVP: The wicked fairy takes not being invited to the baptismal celebrations rather personally. In Matthew Bourne's adaptation, the wicked fairy herself allowed the king and queen to have the child in the first place. Unfortunately, the king forgot to invite her to the baptismal celebrations afterward, and the wicked fairy took the apparent lack of gratitude personally and vowed her revenge.

''Curse of Briar Rose,'' the first of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'' games, uses a sort of composite of the Grimm and Perrault versions to create a backstory for the sleeping princess, who has been sealed inside a castle in Scotland for a thousand years. When the prince kissed her, it woke up everyone in the castle ''except'' her, and he himself died from her curse. Now, the seal on the castle is broken, and giant briar plants are escaping into the city. Briar Rose herself is a significant character in the series, and more parts of her story are revealed as the subsequent games unfold.
