[close] And they lived happily ever after...or so we were lead to believe. Happily ever after is just what we tell our children to wrap up a fairy tale. But their stories did not end there. In the Black Forest, magic was real, and dragons flew threw the air. However, an ancient evil cast the darkest of curses, sending the inhabitants to a Land Without Magic, our world.

Born with magic, sent to our world prior to the Dark Curse, the Savior has come. ▹ ABC's Once Upon A Time ◃ ♢ ▹ Disney's Descendants: Wicked World ◃

[close] Camelot- The land of magic and mystery or so it seems to anyone who read the legends but what of the story behind the legend- was Camelot real? Is it as mystical as the stories say? Well the real Camelot was so much more than men rescuing damsels and fighting evil first they had to claim the throne for themselves. Upon Uther's death, Arthur succeeding to the throne after proving himself the rightful King of Camelot by pulling the sword from the stone. It has been 3 weeks since the young king ascended the throne and the court is doing what they can to control the young King. These factions all have different ambitions and wants but one thing they have in common is they want influence. They want Arthur to be a puppet for them to control- so who does Arthur trust in this climate? His Knights. He set up the Round table as a place where his men had equal power and their advice was counted rather than ignored. He is trying to move away from the Faction system but the factions don't like it and have aliened themselves with some of Camelot's greatest enemies. There is also treachery to be found in Arthur's own family. And what many people will ask of the magic users- well the ban on magic has been lifted but many don't know and many more are killed out of fear and hatred.
