This is just a heads up. This is a fairy tale. Don't expect a tight knit sense of reality or value from it. It's a good story, mind you.

I feel betrayed right now. The story is good, it's quite a wonderful tale and a short one at that. It managed to wake quite a few emotions and it was no doubt worth my time reading it. However, I came here because it clearly said "comedy" in the tags, so I thought it'd be an amusing short story with some gags. What's up with that?

This was anything but a comedy. There wasn't a single funny thing going on here and neither was it lighthearted or satirical. It was more... more>> of a drama oneshot than anything, so I've changed the tags (the adventure tag was also wrong, this is not an adventure short either). Who the heck put these tags there? How misleading.

It was a good, touching and even somewhat tragic read so I don't regret reading it at all (I recommend it), but it's annoying nonetheless when people put tags up that don't belong there because it raises expectations for something and thus it'll affect your enjoyment of the story. Kinda like you'd spit in disgust when you drink something transparent you expected to be water but actually turned out to be something completely different. <<less
