J.K. Rowling did a great job of modernizing the old fairytale structure and making a fortune from tried-and-true fables. She has no problem giving that “fairytale love” :

Once upon a time in a faraway kingdom/Man made up a story, said that I should believe him/Go and tell your white knight that he’s handsome in hindsight/But I don’t want the next best thing/So I sing and hold my head down/And I break these walls ’round me/Can’t take no more of your fairytale love
