What happens when a fairy makes its nest in a utility closet just off the lobby of a huge corporation? Find out in this short story. Here's a hint - wishes are granted, but Oberon asks for quite a bit in return.

An excellent, and clever, short fairy tale. 'Oberon Asked' is even more enjoyable if you're familiar with British and Irish fairy lore.
I found the author's use of parentheses and parenthetical clarifying statements a little perplexing and frequently unnecessary, as though Pellio dislikes commas and prefers to use parentheses for every subordinate clause. At times it bordered on irritating. Once I became accustomed to it, however, I could shrug it off as simply the author's style, and perhaps, in a way, it contributes to the atmosphere of the story.
It certainly wasn't enough to stop me re-reading the story. Twice.
