Do you know that feeling when you want to read and you pick up a book to read but you just cannot read? You’re saying the words in your head but they aren’t processing, they aren’t sinking in. You read several paragraphs and realize you’re bored because you don’t know what you just read, only that…
“Woman with an Orchid” (1900) by Edgard Maxence (1871-1954).
She dreams of adventure. She gets to go on a big adventure to some far-off island. Beast dies, servants remain household objects for eternity, and Belle probably dies of malaria.
Her dream is really vague, but presumably involves getting away from under the control of her awful step-family. So, Fairy Godmother shows up earlier, saving her from years of soul-crushing work, and helps her at least find a position with people who treat her life a human being. And she marries a guy who finds out her name before asking for her hand.
Wants to be "part of your world". She flops up on land, gets noticed by people and captured by circus folk. She then gets to see the human world as she travels in a tank across the kingdom. She gets to see Eric once at a show for the royal family.
Wants to see the lanterns. Mother Gothel takes her to see the lanterns. She spends the rest of her (presumably immortal) life in the tower.
Wishes for "someone to find her". Technically, this wish is answered when the prince finds her at the well. If we expand this to "wishes to be married to this hot guy she just met", this means that the prince is able to marry her and take her to his palace before the queen reaches her. Snow White is still the fairest one of all, and the queen still tries to kill her. However, this means that the queen is now guilty of an assassination plot against the ruler of another kingdom. War breaks out.
