It's a universe ruled by The Traditions - basically, there's a magical
force that wants to make ALL the fairy tales come true.  And it will
do whatever it needs to to make certain they do.  If someone is caught
up in a fairy story, usually the best you can do is shift them from
one with a worse outcome to one with a better outcome.
