The chateau is a nice, spacious home and the other princesses are nice... Soon, Cinderella notices that the girls have started pairing up with one another and it's clear that they aren't just friends anymore.

!!''Kindred'' provides examples of:

* DarkFic: The story is less kid-friendly than the sources, with, amongst other things, the issues of infidelity and the lingering effects of childhood abuse being present.
* NoodleIncident: Tiana banned Anna from the kitchen after the unspecified "kitchen incident" that was so horrific no one will mention it.
* SlashFic: ''Kindred'' ships the Disney princesses with one another.
* YourCheatingHeart: All the princesses are HappilyMarried yet they cheat on their husbands with one another. It's a common but unspoken element of these sorts of royal retreats.
