Makemnoit

You are the Witch Makemnoit! Full marks for creativity -- just make sure feelings of anger, jealous and revenge never skew your contemplations.  Now the fact was that the old princess was at the root of the mischief.  When she heard that her niece found more pleasure in the water than any one else out of it, she went into a rage, and cursed herself for her want of foresight. “But,” said she, “I will soon set all right.  The king and the people shall die of thirst; their brains shall boil and frizzle in their skulls before I will lose my revenge.

The Light Princess

You are the Light Princess! It's great that you can laugh off everyone else's troubles, but what if you ever find yourself caring about something? With a burst of delighted laughter she disappeared in the lake.  A cry of horror ascended from the boats.  They had never seen the princess go down before.  Half the men were under water in a moment; but they had all, one after another, come up to the surface again for breath, when ­tinkle, tinkle, babble, and gush! came the princess’s laugh over the water from far away.  There she was, swimming like a swan.  Nor would she come out for king or queen, chancellor or daughter.  She was perfectly obstinate.

The Prince

You are the Prince! Your heroic efforts are admirable, but how good are you at seeing matters from other people's perspectives? He had fallen in love with her almost, already; for her anger made her more charming than any one else had ever beheld her; and, as far as he could see, which certainly was not far, she had not a single fault about her, except, of course, that she had not any gravity.  No prince, however, would judge of a princess by weight.  The loveliness of her foot he would hardly estimate by the depth of the impression it could make in mud.   

The King

You are the King! Extended communication efforts can be ultimately helpful, but make sure you don't hurt people while expressing your frustrations so passionately. The king heard her sobbing.  Glad of anybody, but especially of his queen, to quarrel with, he clashed his gold sovereigns into his money-box, clapped his crown on his head, and rushed into the parlour.

The Queen

You are the Queen! Diplomacy is obviously your strong suit, but what emotions lie beneath your tactful suggestions? And the king said to himself, “All the queens of my acquaintance have children, some three, some seven, and some as many as twelve; and my queen has not one.  I feel ill-used.”  So he made up his mind to be cross with his wife about it.  But she bore it all like a good patient queen as she was.  Then the king grew very cross indeed.  But the queen pretended to take it all as a joke, and a very good one too.  .
