It occurred to me a couple of days ago that should a young adult who had previously appeared mostly normal turn around to me and inform me that they were a fairy / vampire / werewolf / other supernatural creature, I’d probably just roll with it. 991 more words
Today's awesome reblog is by Miriam Joy - about fairies (and those other supernatural beings) existing, once or now, in this life. It's funny, since fairies in present influencing fiction is one of the subtler (I hope!) points I make in the short story on which I've been working. Take her point about evidence, for instance: my MC, Fionna, only accepts that the woman asking for her help is a fairy after she's snatched her dagger and cut her neck, revealing green blood. An old online friend, I've not had the chance to beta any of Miriam's tales-with-fairies (because I won't call them 'fairy tales'), but I get the sense that her fairies might well fit in with the personalities of mine...or perhaps get along if not. Check out Miriam's blog when you get the chance.
