This is not the fairy tale you were told as a little child. While there are no such things as fairies, magical dragons, or vengeful witches, there are things in this world that can make fantasy become reality. And this is one of those stories.

Once upon a time, not too long ago, there lived a little girl. She believed in fairies. She imagined her prince fighting off dragons and wicked witches and coming to rescue her from the tower. She dreamt of lavish weddings and living happily ever after.

Once upon a time, also not too long ago, there lived a little boy. He sought adventure. He fantasized about battling dragons in his shiny armor. He even saw himself rescuing the princess or damsel in distress that he later went on to marry and live happily ever after with.
