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.
