One thing I loved about vampires were the rules: stay out of the sun, no reflection and only come in if invited. Now, everything is changing and while change is good for the soul, sometimes I miss what once was.
Luckily with Fairies not a lot has changes yet. So for the sake of memory lane, I am listing a few of the rules of the Fair Folk we called Fairies.
And for those who've read the Wisteria Series, you might recognize a few of these traits in Bach's people.
As Fairies are mythical creatures, the rules will sometimes contradict each other, but hey...
- Fairies cannot produce music, but they love it and are often found around live music.
- For the Fairies who can make music or art they often teach humans in exchange for animal sacrifices
- Fairies do not lie, but can be selective with the truth
- They steal babies and switch them with their own. These switched infants are often called Changelings
- While they all have names, they don't offer them up freely as knowing a Fairy's name give you power over her
- Cold Iron is like kryponite to a Fairy
- They are magical creatures and their main business on earth is to cause mischief
- A fairy are generally good humored, but will do horrendous things to a person once she is upset.
- They have green eyes
- Not all accounts held that Fairies were tiny people with wings. Some believed Fairies were tall and majestic human like people.
