Notes: This is a retelling, using Harry Potterverse characters, of the Norwegian folk tale East o’ the Sun & West o’ the Moon, as collected by Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe and given a jaunty translation by George Webbe Dasent. A few lines are copied verbatim. I stayed fairly close to the original, though slashily and with a happier ending for the troll princess. Many thanks to the mods and my beta, A! The illustration, from 1914, is by Danish artist Kay Nielsen – just imagine that’s Harry on the bear’s back.
Summary: One stormy Thursday evening, a big white bear named Draco turns up to carry Harry away from the dreadful Dursleys. They get along fairly happily together until one night Harry’s curiosity gets the better of him, and Draco is whisked away to his wicked aunt’s castle, East of the Sun and West of the Moon. It will take a strong wind to bring Harry that far…..
