Review by

Cute. A heron and a crane keep asking each other to marry, but keep getting very easily offended. Spoiler alert! They never got married and are probably still there today, dithering and getting their feathers in a ruffle. So I liked the ending. (And, there's no reason why you can't regender to your heart's content to have a same-gender relationship.)
