A Fairy Tale

Where do Fairies come from? The oldest and strongest fairies were once fallen angels. These are the lightest fae and the darkest, the most benign and the most dangerous. Some fae were once humans who got lost in the fairylands ( where time works differently. 300 years can seem like a day). They became immortal and beautiful--but they lost their humanity and their capacity for compassion. A fairy can begin as a failing--the child of a human fae coupling. If the child is born in the fairylands, she turns almost immediately. If a child is born in the human world, she may never know the fairyland. The Fairies of today are believed to be small, delicate and feminine. While most people can't see fairies, some children do see them. Some people can see the actual fairies, while others see a white misty shape. Still others see colored lights and some can even sense their presence. They like to live near meadows or gardens or in a fairyland. They do interact with humans sometimes, but not only with good intentions.
