L'écrit et la réalité
To me, storytelling has always clearly been about a wedding together of "reality" and "fantasy", truth and lies. You can't really shove it into either corner, and I don't really know why people try so hard. You can take both positions with ease, but it just hurts my head to think about it too much. One can say "all stories are true"-- and one can also say "every word out of anyone's mouth is automatically a lie". To some degree, I believe both positions are valid.
