From Mattel comes the Fractured Fairy Tale spinoff of Monster High: Ever After High.In the enchanted world of Fairy Tales, the plot rules the entire universe: every story has a princess or other fairy tale protagonist; an evil queen, a dastardly villain, and/or a terrible monster; and there is always, ALWAYS a Happily Ever After.To help ensure that this cycle is never broken, Ever After High was established. Run by Headmaster Grimm (and observed by his less by-the-book brother), staffed by the fairy godmothers and fairy tale personae of old, it ensures that the newest generation of Fairy Tale protagonists and antagonists follow the exact same route as their parents, ensured through a magical ritual called Legacy Day.Problems start when Raven Queen, daughter of the Evil Queen from Snow White, doesn't WANT to become an evil queen. With the cycle threatened, her fellow characters' tales jeopardized, and Happily Ever After no longer a sure thing, this school year promises to be one to remember...In addition to the toys and video content, also has a book series being written by Shannon Hale.Now has a Character Page. Please direct tropes about specific characters there.
