As an important pawn in her father's game of chess, Violet Alexander has one simple job: smile pretty for the press. But even this proves too difficult. Her mood has seemed to be permanently dampened by her father's perpetual need to lock her sexuality in a box that not even she is granted access to.

Brooklyn Frank has spent her entire life worrying about how she'll get by- where her next meal will come from, how her next bills will be paid for. Moving from job to job, criticized for something she can't change and won't lie about, Brooklyn can't seem to catch a break.

But the two have yet to meet. And when they do? Who knows ~ things change.

~NOTE~ This is a modern retelling of the Russian fairytale "The Princess Who Never Smiled", written for the lgbtq contest 'Once Upon A Time'.

But Aria being a beginner drag racer makes more sense to me.

For some reason this popped into my head:
                              
                              "Violet: the beginner drag racer."

As straight as circles come, most likely is what you mean by "they".
