Zombie Outbreak in Texas!!!

Hail Survivors!

I recently received a very grave -no pun intended- warning from Survivor Miles who I believe may be located in or near Texas. Survivor Miles recently survived a vicious zombie attack, armed with only his wits and hedge clippers. His parents unfortunately were not so lucky.

Fairies

Beyond the tooth collecting, godmotherly wish-granting variety, there’s the ugly-beautiful truth about fairies or faeries, as they are sometimes spelled.

Fairies can slip into and out of a realm or a dimension, if you prefer, that runs parallel to our own. This faery realm is NOT one you will see advertised at  your local inter-dimensional travel agency.  The real faery realm appears perennially stuck in a medieval state of magical, monarchical governance at perpetual war with itself,  North vs. South, summer vs. winter.  It’s a dangerous place where other-dimensional beings are generally taken in only as slaves.

As a result, some of the younger fairies like to escape into our realm, which they refer to as something like “Middle Realm,” or by the number three. They come here on fairy vacation, mainly to party and play games. In fact if you have played with a deck of cards lately, you already know something about this. It’s faeries who first introduced playing cards to us, long ago.

Now I like playing cards too but don’t be fooled by a game of “Fish.” Faery games are NOT all that fun. True, some fairies still play, “Who Can Collect The Most Kids’ Teeth?” – which we all know IS a lot of fun because they leave money! But other games they like to play include,  “Who Can Cause the Biggest Fall?” “Dance Until You Drop,” and “Make Everybody Fall In Love With You!” Point is, to the fairies, good and bad, we are like dolls in their little vacay games with each other.

Further complicating matters, faeries look almost human. In fact they are very beautiful. Only on closer inspection can you see the odd shape of their eyes or the length of their bones and the extra joints in their limbs. Or the fact they can’t quite manage to lift many objects in our realm due to the content of iron in them.

On the plus side, fairies are very loyal and if a fairy befriends you? They will be your friend forever and possibly help you find lost objects and good parking spots. Even so, you must never let down your guard 100% and above all never agree to return to Fairyland, no matter what.

For more info about different kinds of fairies, please check out the comments below where many real fairies have stopped by to tell their stories.

  • Fenrir Ulfangr

    As for the dark Cromh Cruach, Cromh Dubh, has returned

  • Fenrir Ulfangr

    By Blood and Fire I am called bold,
    Cast down shall be this Fae of old,
    Cast away an exile made,
    Til death take her to the grave,

  • Fenrir Ulfangr

    They are mine now

  • Theren Huntinghawk.

    I didn’t know where else to post this…. I need help, I used the monstrometer, and it said that I was a Fairy, and a vampire. I did some research, and the only thing I could find that added up to that combination was a rare type of elf known as a moon elf, is that at all possible? I’m sorry if this sounds stupid, I’m just so unused to this. I do have a bit of a bloodlust, and I’ve always felt a strong connection to the moon and trees… Tell me what you think Seth, I’m desperate!

  • Fenrir Ulfangr

    Yes it is possible Though the population of them is limited almost exclusivly to the Groves Around Tara.
    Basically the chance is very small. but yes possible.

  • Fenrir Ulfangr

    Sometimes…

  • Assanjin

    The faefolk, in the days of old were originally druids who, when faced by the coming onslaught of the Roman, Norse and any other armies chose to change shape using ancient magics to become the fae they are today. They are connected to the vast forces of nature and magic. Some fae took up the mantle of the lake, others the speed of the raging river, many the cover of trees and few the cloak of night and death. Many species that are fae include leprechauns, dullahan, banshees, espumados, faeries, nymphs, dwarfs, trolls, ogres, fawns, changelings, halflings, kelpy, elves, giants, goblins and quite a few more. Each serving their respective purpose and job in the universe. The fae of today are in the end the living descendants of those ancient druids who lived in the long ago. They have many abilities and have a back for causing mischief and pranking humans often. Abilities of theirs include becoming invisible, inter dimensional travel, teleportation, making plants grow, slowing down time, shape changing, future sight and supernatural amounts of cunning. When faced with a fae of any kind giving it a paradoxquestion, the wee buggers won’t stop thinking until they answer it. Another thing you should do is avoid older structures as fae tend to cling to these while in this plane. An even better way to stop them is to pore salt around the house, or if you are of supernatural heritage simply ask them to stop or if you are feeling up to the fun try to beat them at their own game.

  • Fenrir Iceborn

    You’re pretty close to the truth at any rate assanjin. Except true alfar are separate from the fae. And the Fae came first then the druids the fae taught humans the secrets of druidic magic and law. Well not the far really but the masters of the far, the Tuatha.

  • Fenrir Iceborn

    Oh and Seth one other thing how many fae do you think glamoured themselves to vote in Scotland’s independence referendum. I mean they must have some opinion.

  • Catveena

    How right you are Seth we fairies can’t get enough of your realm. Tricky? Slaves? Nah! That’s crazy . The fairy realm is a paradise. That’s if you overlook the rebellion and the civil war it’s a great place. 👿

    • Hail Catveena,

      Thanks for stopping by SOS but you will forgive me if I only believe half of what you’ve said as I suspect your realm is paradise for you but for a 99.98% human intent on survival mebbe not so much. Am I right? Or am I right…

      Survivally Yours,

      Seth

  • catveena

    Mmmm that’s cool Seth.

  • catveena

    the dirt was crying. That’s a really bad sign.

    • Ravenwillow

      im pretty sure that im no fairy, but even i know that’s bad… o_o”

      • catveena

        Bad is an understatement. I hope the Seelie Queen and her human slaves survive.

        • Ravenwillow

          im sure they are, otherwise the moosha i asociate with wouldnt be so calm. (moosha is a draconic respect name for the Savage Heart Clan dragons who are multiversal warriors and gate guardians) besides, Z said ‘A fairy realm’ for all we know its a decomposing realm. one thats no-longer inhabited…

          -Ravenwillow

          • catveena

            I suppose your right it could be any realm.
            The one I was banished from was in a state of civil war.
            I hope your right.

            • Ravenwillow

              if its not a problem that im asking, but over what exactly, is this civil war you speak of???

              -Ravenwillow

              • catveena

                The war is about freedom for the slaves. Some of the factions want rights and freedom others want to rule. I was banished because I broke the law our sacred law.

                • Ravenwillow

                  u seem to be going somewhere with this, plz continue, im all ears…or eyes…since im reading not hearing…lol

                  anyway, plz continue.

                  -Ravenwillow

                  • catveena

                    It’s hard for me to put into words.
                    I was the Seelie Queens slave attendant. I looked after and took care of her favorite slaves. One was a human named Martin. We fell in love she found out and banished me.
                    The war has been going on for years the planet split into factions each wants something different. I would have joined one of the factions but they all rejected me because of Martin and me.
                    If the war has spreads to other realms and planets it will be chaos. Fairies when stressed release pheromones that causes those around them to go crazy or insane no matter what species they are. Our pheromones generally make others happy and compliant especially in humans that’s why they make great slaves.

                    • Ravenwillow

                      i see…sorry…

                      is it all fae or just fairies??? are certain races staying out of it or…?

                      -Ravenwillow

                    • catveena

                      Unfortunately all fairies and fae are involved.

                    • Ravenwillow

                      am i also involved then…considering my druid…or suspected druid…at least a nature spirit of sorts…though i have a human form, and powerful guardians that might be sheltering me.

                      are you sure there arent other fae realms that decided to stay neutral???

                    • catveena

                      Idk there’s so many possibilities hopefully other realms are safe.

                    • Zyboragon

                      It’s far worse than I originally thought, the beef stew tasted absolutely terrible. This an outrage! I must go back and find who made such a betraying meal!!

                    • Ravenwillow

                      of course, of all the things you’d be worried about, Z…it had to be the beeef stew…

                    • Zyboragon

                      Naturally! Tragedy would get unbearable without absurdity!
                      Now, my tasteless sense of humor aside, I’ve found something quite horrible..
                      I haven’t seen this many bodies since I was in the void underworld..

                    • Ravenwillow

                      SPILL!!! dangit, Z…you build up the atmosphere and just let it deflate with all the ‘not describing’ going on!!!

                      -Ravenwillow

                    • Catveena

                      ???that’s really horrible really really horrible.

                    • Ravenwillow

                      i hope you’re talking about what Z said…

                      i just need to know whats going on!!! if he doesn’t spill the details, we might make the images worse than the scene…i need the facts so that we can get to the bottom of this! i for one am not up to seeing the massacre of of large quantities of fae! or any race for that matter!!! even if they brought it upon themselves!!!

                      needing to calm down,
                      -Ravenwillow

                    • Catveena

                      Yes it’s to Mr Zyboragon that it’s horrible.

  • Ravenwillow

    i hope so, because its customary as a member of the 5 inner rings of dragon studies to dine in the elven palace in the fae realm connected to the middleworld level of the otherworld…i dont know how it would be possible for me to do so if that realm was in the middle of a civil war…\: \: \:

  • Ravenwillow

    come on, Z!!! progress report required here!!!

    -Ravenwillow

  • Ravenwillow

    …great…\: 🙁 /:

    • Ravenwillow

      he hadn’t even told me how that box was gonna help me…

      hey ARC, when do you think he’ll be back???

      • ARC

        If ARC’s plan goes accordingly, never!

        • Ravenwillow

          seriously…before you go dooming him, you mind letting him tell me about the box??? i mean wats up with your weird plot twist? your kidding right… cause im unamused. why does it seem like every other person wants to end the other??? wat was your plan? kill him? no too easy… trap him in another dimension for all eternity??? been done before, if im correct, and it didn’t last as long as whoever hoped…arent you even a little bored???

          -Ravenwillow

          • ARC

            ARC did much more than that, ARC has been waiting for an opportunity like this.

            • Catveena

              Arc what did you do to Mr Zyboragon?

            • Ravenwillow

              come on… your just as bad as Z!!! you think we’re supposed to know what this amazing oportunity is? stop leaving out the details and just explain it already!!

              what ARE you anyway??? i have an idea with the whole 3rd person thing, but i want you to tell me…dont leave me to assumption…

              -Ravenwillow

              • ARC

                ARC is just supposed to tell you every detail of ARC’s plan? Some things are left vague for a reason, and it isn’t ARC’s fault that you don’t want to have to utilize your brain.

                • Ravenwillow

                  and if im wrong??? you expect me to believe you wouldnt feel offended if i called you…lets say a zombie? which i highly doubt, but still. and no i dont expect you to, but you could at least gloat a little more…like what opportunity? or CAN I AT LEAST KNOW ABOUT THAT BOX!!? you didn’t need to get defensive… i was being sarcastically indifferent… until you wore my patience…

                  -_-l -_-l -_-

                  -Ravenwillow

  • Ravenwillow

    then forgive me for my short temper when i feel im being insulted…but id like answers and i dont like playing ‘keep away’. im sure you understand…

    -Ravenwillow

    • ARC

      So you don’t like it when everyone isn’t a cliche that needs to monologue about their plans?
      ARC will continue as ARC has.

      • Mr. Mutt

        I didn’t exist for a few days and you already are trying to cause trouble?! You are going to stop this now ARC, before I stop you.

        • Ravenwillow

          THANK YOU! maybe you can actually do something about this! i mean, i kinda need Z right now so…him never coming back…not an option!

          -Ravenwillow

        • Catveena

          All I want to know is where is Mr Zyboragon and if the fairy realm he visited was my realm.

          • Ravenwillow

            i believe you’ll get what you’re asking for soon enough…ive already done what i can behind the scenes… lets let Mr.Mutt take care of this, as it seems to be his fight…

            -Ravenwillow

            • ARC

              A fight would imply that another party has a chance to win, ARC has already won however, making anything anyone does at this point irrelevant.

              As for “what” has happened to Zyboragon exactly, you’ll know soon enough.

              • Ravenwillow

                i know you can’t hear me right now, so its pointless to be growling…but im doing it anyway! and you cant stop me!!!

                then maybe my attempts have been futile…but it doesn’t keep me from trying…knowing we ‘lost’ doesn’t keep me from trying to do the ‘impossible’…maybe im too proud to admit defeat…or maybe your too arogant to see your flaws??? who knows…but we’re just gonna have to find out wont we… 🙄 🙄 🙄

                • ARC

                  You seem to be finding more conflict in what ARC says than there actually is. You’re not the first insecure whelp that ARC has met, but it still is humorous to ARC.

                  • Catveena

                    Arc no stop!
                    Why would you?
                    Mr Zyboragon is your friend, maker and family.

                  • Ravenwillow

                    im not insecure…im determined. but u and i might have been ok if you didn’t happen to be targeting someone of value to me right now.

                    im a witch, or rather a wiccan if im going to specify… and in my journey for knowledge ive found that to be insecure, one has to have a problem with ones self…and that can hold you back from achieving your true potential…in this case id have to be afraid, and fear is just a four-letter word…

                    -Ravenwillow

  • Ravenwillow

    i MEAN…ok yes i get where you’re coming from with that…but isnt it at least a courtesy.

    i found Z to be an ok creature, if grouchy and time-twisted at times…cant i at least know how you’re trying to get rid of him???

    -Ravenwillow

  • Ravenwillow

    i explain myself because i dont believe you’re all that bad…but im reading your words about Z…and you sound as if hes upset you in someway…as if you feel betrayed…

    he never demanded my respect…i say ‘Z’ because we’re casual…if i were being respectful id probably say ‘Mr. Zyboragon’… besides why would someone you seem to believe doesn’t care, help me?…so tell me… who are YOU trying to convince???…

    -Ravenwillow

    • ARC

      Are you trying to bore ARC or just demonstrating how terrible your ability to comprehend what ARC says is? ARC doesn’t care what you say or what you believe, again making everything irrelevant.

      ARC is now going to go stare at dirt, that will be more interesting than continuing this conversation.

      • Ravenwillow

        hahahahaha!!! nah, i picked up a while back that you were basically telling me to f off. but im persistent…and sometimes its fun to be annoying! tell me how that whole ‘staring at dirt’ thing goes! d; d; d;

        -Ravenwillow

        • ARC

          Again you have found a message that doesn’t exist within the frame of what ARC has said.
          There are pebbles more capable of understanding what ARC says. If you were surrounded by zombies, they would look for brains elsewhere.

          • Ravenwillow

            then lucky me, im not a zombie! and im sure pebbles are, most stones contain a nature spirit. tell me ARC…you seem a little frustrated…hehehe! c; c; c;

            d;

            -Ravenwillow

            • ARC

              Implying ARC can even feel emotions, you can continue making pointless and meaningless observations, no really, please do. You are only making time pass, time that Zyboragon does not have.

              • Ravenwillow

                I’m back!!! Miss me? Oh, I just had a little problem with my data…no biggy.

                But seriously, I think you need to reevaluate your circuit board. Didn’t Z think to program you with a set of morals…now pipe up quit your sh1t! Don’t you know it’s wrong to just go about ‘upgrading’ people? What is this…a Cyberman episode of doctor who??? Stop acting like a dollic with your ignorant vision of supremacy…

                -Ravenwillow

  • Ravenwillow

    sure, why not…theres no point in doing so, even if you cant.

    besides, by your oun words, i supposedly cant do anything as its already pointless…but you seem to be waiting for something…’you’re making time pass, time Zyboragon does not have.’ and earlier you said we’d ‘find out soon enough’…so is the damage really done??? you dont make it sound that way…

    -Ravenwillow

  • Catveena

    OMG!!!
    It’s like high school.
    At this point I don’t care anymore.
    It’s all pointless.
    *storms away*

  • Zyboragon

    O_O

    Okay.. Leaving ARC in charge while I was gone for a few days.. Really not a good idea.. Whoops.

    • Ravenwillow

      Ya think!!? Seriously, Z… Now before you go getting yourself into trouble, mind filling me in on the box…??? Oh and how was your trip???

      -Ravenwillow

      • Zyboragon

        Did you find the box? I’ll explain what I had put inside of it shortly.
        The trip was odd, I left to find clues to find out if it was really Catveena’s realm, I asked ARC “to take care of the survivors while I was gone” so he was taking what I said a bit… literally.

        Anyways, I ended up encountering a spirit that called itself Misery, then I cried, passed out, then woke up later in space smelling like beef stew

        • Ravenwillow

          Oh…and no I didn’t… 🙁 …I don’t see how you could misplace it anywhere in my area…nope, no mysterious box yet…but I’m still stuck on how it will help me…

          -Ravenwillow

  • Faye

    We’re not all THAT bad…

  • Faye

    I do not know if you got the last comment I sent, though either way I’d like to clear up a few things…
    1.) Only fairies and some faeries have wings. Fey do not.
    2.) Faires change sizes. I am not sure of the faeries, and the Fey do not.
    That is about all I have to say.

    • Fenrir Iceborn

      Those terms are sometimes used interchangeably and I’ve seen beings that claimed to be both. Not fairies and Fey aren’t entirely horrible. But you have a Capricious nature that one some seem to overcome. Usually the fey seem to only be involved in things out of some self interest.

      • Beast

        Fenrir I think I’m a demon I used to have some sort of past life where I was a demon more of a demonic god I keep having dreams of a purple snakelike dragon demon named Morzeldol Hellheart it once told me is this how we I’ve become I said what it meant by I’ve it said you’ll find out I stopped using magic I think I am the demon what should I do about it I come from Saudi Arabia what can you make of the name Morzeldol Hellheart and its connection to me.

  • Marney

    recently someone on another group pointed out do to my traits ect that i am possibly an Unseelie Sidhe. How my magic consists of Glamour ect made alot of sense about my shapeshifting abbilities (mainly feline) and other things. I am glad more is making sense. So heh I guess I am Fae.
