Summary: The Moon watches the boy die; the stars make a promise. It takes a little over a century to gather enough stardust. About 238,900 miles away, a horrible tragedy has recently befallen a young princess, who is to be queen in a few short days.

Astrid is well-liked throughout her kingdom and her castle workers worry. One of those workers is a descendant of Mrs. Emma Overland and the stars gladly grant her wish and then some more. Astrid’s given many consolatory gifts; flowers among the most of them. Born from a beautiful forget-me-not is a frost sprite with, ironically, a memory worse than Swiss cheese. The size of a thumb with a voice too small to be heard, Jack is desperate. 

The Nightmare Queen has a proposal.

Prompt:

Jack as Thumbelina/Ariel
Jack is born from a beautiful flower (for the sake of irony, let’s say it was a forget-me-not). He doesn’t need wings to fly, he rides on the bees for fun and there is laughter everywhere he goes. Except, it’s not enough. He wants to play with those huge creatures that look so much like him, but none of them see him. One day, he meets a witch (Pitch) that offers him to become like them, for a price (e.g. his smile, his laughter, actually his voice) and Jack accepts. Making friends is easy or difficult, depending on the price paid (like, it’s a bit harder to make one if you can’t smile, and look grumpy all the time), but he eventually does.

He also falls in love, and then the witch is there and fucks shit up and he ends up all small again.
Happy ending with JackRabbit and Manny making Jack tall(er) again.
Up to author to make Bunny human(oid) or not.
Bonuses:
+++ female Bunny
+ I’m a sucker for Cupcake/Jamie and North/Tooth
