    I wouldn't translate the word сказка into the word story.
    сказка here describes the feelings:

    Чувствовать себя как в сказке.
    - To feel like in heaven.

    (Well it is not a perfect translation but very close).

    So the translation would be "Thanks for the {wonderful moments} you gave me."

    I'm not satisfied with this one too but that's all that came into my head.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Прикольно. Я не знал, что можно использовать слово "сказка" в этом значении.

    Yeah, жить как в сказке, for example, means to live a life full of pleasant things that occur to you.

    Так что можно сказать что-то так:

    Это место сказка. This place is wonderful.

    That's right but don't forget about the dash. It's important.

    And I'd translated this into:
    This place is a dream.

    Also, это просто сказочное место! will be very good when you're excited to describe a place you enjoy being in.

    Прикольно is an adverb from the noun прикол. It's a slang and the most close equivalent in English would be: Cool!

    Сказка - fairy tail. Can't you translate it directly? Like: thank you for fairy tail that you gave (gifted?) me.

    Fairy tail = a tail of a fairy.
    Fairy tale = a tale which is fairy.

    Oops = the sound you make
    Ups = your successes.

    Nah... "Ups" is quite common. I've seen it on American forums quite often.

    Raise 5-10 years. It's quite common among people under 30. It may be occasionally used by the elders but rather seldom.

    Often the meaning strongly depends on the context and intonation and may vary from "COOL, WHAT A STUFF!" to "NOT A BAD PIECE OF SH@T". Slightly positive (or humorous) in all cases but tends to be neutral most of the time. Not offensive.
    Send me a PM if you need me.
