Rachel | 522 comments This one is amusing. Flipping a classic fantasy/faerie trope on its head - not sure there's a ton of deeper meaning but the gender role reversal is fun

Andrea | 2567 comments So far my favorite. It was short, sweet, and funny. Agreed it wasn't necessarily deep but it was definitely fun.

This was certainly one of the chuckle-worthy story, on its own and for turning the traditional role of human infatuation with fae & selkie roles on their heads.

Caitlin Also really enjoyed the role reversal. Not my favorite but for the amusement and enjoyment, it's pretty high on my list for the short stories.
