In fairy tales, weird things always happen to the characters, and they never seem to bat an eyelash!!!
For example, in the fairy tale "Queen Cat", there's this prince who comes across a random castle is the middle of the woods. The queen of the castle is a talking cat, and all the servants are bodiless, floating hands. Now, a NORMAL person would have a nervous breakdown at seeing floating hands but nooooooooooooo, the prince is all like, "Oh, floating hands! I think I'll stay here for dinner!"
Anyway, there's my 2 cents.
