The story under Diana, of the fairy having her clothes stolen sound almost exactly like a Chinese tale but which ends with them both in heaven but eternally separated (by the milky way) except on one night when they are allowed to cross the magpie bridge to be together. That is the seventh night of the seventh month of the lunar calendar, and is known as qi xi. Google it. The Japanese call it Tanabata. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qixi_Festival

Thank you very much for your story. In fact, there are similarities about the fairy tales of the different peoples and there are also books about the main types of fairy tales.
I really appreciate your feedback, that's one of the things I want to achieve with this site.
