“Come faeries, take me out of this dull world,
for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
~William Butler Yeats
This is a work of fiction.
All the characters in it, human and otherwise, are imaginary, excepting only certain of the fairy folk, whom it might be unwise to offend by casting doubts on their existence.
Or lack thereof.
We call them faerie.
We don’t believe in them.
~Charles de Lint
“The fey wonders of the world only exist while there are those with the sight to see
them.” ~ Charles de Lint
“And though you should live in a palace of gold,
or sleep in a dried up ditch,
You could never be as poor
as the fairies are, and never as rich.”
“The myths and legends about Faerie are many and diverse, and often contradictory. Only one thing is certain – that nothing is certain. All things are possible in the land of Faerie.” ~Brian Froud and Alan Lee, Preface of Faeries–
