An evil King finds out a young boy is destined to marry her daughter so he keeps trying to get the kid out of the way, which only leads him closer to his goal, in the end the King demands three gold hairs from the devil.
On his way, the boy learns of other people's misfortune, like dried up wine fountain, a dying golden apple tree and cursed ferryman, when he reaches the devil, the devil's grandma turns him into an ant to hide him and she asks of the previous misfortunes and yanks the hairs and gives all to the boy. The boy is rewarded with gold which the evil king asks about, but the boy tricks him into breaking the ferryman's curse and is stuck there for eternity.
Wow, this one is so generic I almost thought I was re-reading another fairy tale, evil stepmother, running away and transforming to hide...
But then the unnamed female protagonist turns into flower and WANTS to be trampled, but is picked up by Shepard and she does his tasks, the Shepard undoes the spell and she returns to his true love.
The only named character is the lady's love, who was barely in the story and didn't do anything.
Another story with three brothers and tablecloth that serves itself with food magically, the third brother with this cloth meets a coal worker who will trade the cloth for a knapsack that summons soldiers that will obey his every command, so he accepts and.... summons the soldiers to steal the cloth back, he then meets another coal miner who this times trades him a hat that has magic cannon fire powers, and you won't believe what happened! He traded and then used the cannons to get the cloth back, the final coal miner had a horn that has almost apocalyptic powers wrecking everything in it's path and you guess what happened.
Well, this "marvelous" man returns to his brothers who think he's a beggar with the tattered hat and knapsack, so... he unleashed Hell. The King tries to intervene, but now the third brother demands the kingdom and the princess or he'll wreck everything. The King is forced to accept.
The new "definitely not a tyrant" King is tricked by the princess to reveal his secret, but since he has several items, he always had something and ended up using the horn, which killed the princess, the old King and wrecked the kingdom.... What a guy?
There are three sisters, one with one eye, one with two and one with three, they pick on Two-Eyes by giving her nothing but scraps, because... it's a Grimm Fairy Tale and someone has to suffer?
Two-Eyes takes care of the family goat and meets and old lady that teaches her a spell to make the goat summon a table filled with food (damn, I just drew almost the same thing yesterday), so now she can at least get a decent meal.
Eventually the family get suspicious and they send One-Eye with Two-Eyes to see if she can find out anything, Two-Eyes sings a lullaby and One falls asleep, eventually Three-Eyes goes, but since she has three eyes, when she falls asleep her third eye sees the spell and tells her mother, who kills the goat.
The old lady reappears and tells Two-Eyes to bury the goats entrails, which sprout a silver tree with gold apples, and only Two-Eyes can touch the tree. The story goes a bit Cinderella with a nobleman asking about the tree and the family not letting Two-Eyes meet the nobleman, he requests a silver branch and will grant a wish to the persons who gives it to him, obviously in the end Two-Eyes is the only one who can do it and ask to be taken away from his horrible family and even the magic tree follows her, so her family ends impoverished.
