  • Jill, enthralled still at 13 with fairy tales is constantly teased and tormented for her "childishness". When she makes a wish to have her own fairy tale, and for everyone to leave her alone...she gets just what she asks for.

    The premise for this episode had the potential to make a great story. However, it falls short. It starts off wonderfully, but when the meat of the plot is reached, it starts to sour. This tale actually mimics the basic structure of another one of Kristen's mediocre stories, "The Tale of the Hungry Hounds" in that it starts of well, goes into a dream-like sequence, then after "waking up" the character realises it was only a nightmare...but the audience finds out it wasn't. As I said before, this episode could have been much better but unfortunately it sinks down to average because of its short comings.
