Just because it’s always been that way doesn’t make it right.
Teased by the young fairies for her clumsiness and large feet, Tiptoe believes she's a failure as a fairy. She's confined to the creche where only the babies can see her, and every time she leaves it, it's all Tiptoe can do to avoid damaging the fairy village.
Then a human prince is added to her charges, and she starts to wonder if her differences are more than just flaws. In helping an innocent baby, a new world is opened to her.
When the Shoe Won't Fit originally appeared in the online magazine, Aurora Wolf, and the related anthology, Aurora in the Dawn.
