This is a work of fiction.
All the characters in it, human and otherwise,
excepting only certain of the fairy folk,
whom it might be unwise to offend
by casting doubts on their existence.
Or lack thereof.
FAE = strange, odd, weird, not-of-this-world
RIE = land
Fairyland = misspelled and redundant
Once there was a time when Faery and the human world move closer together.
When faerys had watched humans; watched over them.
When there was magic in the world and humans were part of that magic.
When faerys loved the humans in their care.
Loved them like children, but also in waiting, awed as they grew.
Waiting for their human friends to grow to love them.
And still Faery is waiting for the human race to grow up.
THE POINT OF THIS WIKI
is to make the best wiki to show all of what faerys are
I want to depict all the different kinds of faerys
so that the definition of what is a faery is explored fully
not glossed over with the simplest explanation.
Im not solely interested in winning the contests
Im interested in making the best faery wiki!
as we all should be.
maybe there should be as many winners as there are different kinds of faerys.
what I dont want is to limit exploring what is a faery
to only a limited predetermined perception of what faerys are

*** Jinx by hawthorne art by [moira hawthorne] Jinx is [dayah]'s OC fairy character
'Jinx on a Toadstool'
'Little Ankle-Biter' and people's magazine spoof.
NOTE: the magazine cover IS ALL MY ART!
I made the entire magazine cover
I drew/made/constructed the Faeries weekly title
(its not a photoshop font - I drew it in adobe illustrator)
and wrote the rest of text,
I even drew the UPC at the bottom right.
This was my final art project for college computer class,
when we worked on macs and had the use of 3 art programs
Endless hours went into that piece!
Tonnes of nights in the computer lab after classes...
spent pulling my hair out to make it an awesome final project.
unfortunately I dont have a colour version for the magazine cover
b/c it was stored on a jaz disc that was corrupted
'In the Faery Garden' Where do the fairies sleep?! where else?
'My Computer Bradach'
he a nasty little fae who I dont understand at all
he pees on things and crashes for no reason and basically misbehaves
and when he gets pissy he talks in a language I dont understand! o.O
'Danger in the Garden'
Spirit of the Night, 1879 by John Atkinson Grimshaw
*In Scotland faeries were divided into the Seelie (old Saxon for "blessed") Court and Unseelie Court depending on whether they are friendly and helpful or malicious and evil. Kind faeries travel, spreading good and help where ever they go while the Unseelie hurt, frighten and sometimes even destroy mortals. Though it is not safe to offend those of the Seelie Court, the punishment from members of the Unseelie is much, much worse, and you dont even have to try to offend the Unseelie.
the word Glamour is often used when describing beings - elf and faery
and magic even
there is the idea of a glamour as magic that makes you appear as something you arent... often more beautiful
this is still the usage for fashion glamour makeup and magazine ect
There is also a deeper darker meaning to this... magic: glamour and illusion ...
he will automatically appear human to mortals
and appear as is most comfortable for that mortal's mind to accept as normal
but his faery nature makes him more appealing... seems unusual and special
when powerful he can appear as what you most wish / want / desire
there is also the idea that a glamour can hide what is there
something of faery.. say a doorway, or an elf/faery
so they can move unseen and keep their places hidden
there is lastly an older meaning
Glamour - Gaconner or Gancanagh.
The Love Talker. Seducer. Romancer. Scoundrel of the worst kind.
Searching the night for lonely young women, he takes the form of their ideal lover,
seduces them, then exposes their weakness to all before abandoning the young maid/lads.
Few of his victims live long afterwards dying of despair or a broken heart...
A vain, beautiful, seductive, dangerous, conscienceless, Rake.
He is the bad boy that woman and men love.
Loves attention and seeks the newest thrill and latest conquest
once upon a time he likely played a lute beneath a castle window...
now he screams his ass off on stage under strobes and black lights!
He can sing and play nearly anything well to the point of no effort
He is charming attractive flamboyant and a natural actor
faery is just one more reason to think outside of the box
when dealing with faery.. either the concept or the beings themselves...
one must choose one's words carefully and never be limited by preconceive notions...
for faery shall twist your thoughts, words and intentions...
you must be open to all the the unconventional thoughts and possibilities...
or faery will trip you up and trap you in a word play
Aodh's claim: "I cant lie."
Human: "Since when do faes not lie?"
Aodh always say he cant.
Whether thats a lie is yet to be proved,
at the very least it could be said
he finds telling the truth more amusing.
Aodh will tell the truth to enemies aswell.
Now its always the truth as he sees it,
and this doesnt count for deceiving.
He may deceive you with faery gold,
then if you ask him, tell you the truth.
And just because he always tells the truth,
doesnt mean he always has to tell you all the truth!
If he pays a dishonest bastard
what he thinks is a 1000 gold pieces,
but in truth is nothing but 'faery gold'
(which is leaves &/or nuts),
he will say something like
'this should more than compensate you your lost.'
And he is very good at this....
figure he has had a few millennia to practise.
Now there are some who consider that the fae
aren't all exactly honest in faery tales.
This is a human misconception.
I think they are very honest!
They just have their own morals & ideas of justice!
A human man asks the King of the Fae
to grant him his wish to live forever.
The King grants his wish.
The human comes back years later
and complains that he has aged,
and is plagued with sickness and injury!
The King says: "But you havent died... nor will you!"
Human: "Since when do faes not lie?"
"Forever." Aodh smirked,
"Its only humans who dont believe that what we say is truth."
"Its always easier to accuse someone of lying
when you dont like the truth they are offering."
"What fools these mortals be"
A Midsummer Night's Dream
by William Shakespeare
