This story kind of got ragged on, so I thought I would try to counter-balance the discussion a little.  One of the aspects of that I love about fantasy is that it is always new, and always different.  I liked how the author of this story combined the fantastic elements typical of the genre (a frog prince) with an uncommon and misunderstood aspect of our own culture. 

I thought it was a neat story.

I thought this was perfect. This is a story that will stay in my heart for a long, long time.

Stop throwing gnomes at me. They hurt.

The story didn't hold my interest long enough to get to the really interesting part.  Ten minutes in and it was still just an awkward date, not really enough hook me.
