Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who had a faithful knight as her companion.

Sometimes they did argue about things like who would get the last gummy bear or who got to ride the royal steed, but mostly they got along swimmingly.

The knight protected the princess through many adventures.

They braved nights full of stars and robber bandits.

They staved off attacks by dragons with inferiority complexes.

They conducted pirate raids and snowball fights.

The princess rewarded the knight by letting him kiss her hand sometimes, and by not letting his head get chopped off.

After all, she was a very beautiful princess and it would’ve been a shame if she didn’t have her knight there to save her from bad things.

The princess put up with a lot from the knight; stuck-out tongues, sassing, and minor conflicts, but there was one thing that she always insisted on.

No matter how terrible the adventure or how heavy the battle there must be one thing straight; her and her knight had to have coordinating outfits.

In the end they lived happily ever after. I mean, who wouldn’t live happily ever after when they’re so fabulously dressed?
