"Well, I definitely can fly."  (5/6/12)

Some wishes are more easily granted than others.  (5/8/12)

A self portrait, including mermaid tail, fairy wings, a magic wand, and tiara.  (5/8/12)

Elaine's sister -- a fairy named Yonga -- bought Tatsely from a zoo for Elaine.  (5/11/12)

But they both dream of watermelon cake.  (5/11/12)
