I am frustrated, because I was telling a guy I was interested in about my belief in fae, and he told me I was crazy and never wanted to see me again =(I was just wondering if there are any guys on this list? Are there guys out there who have open minds and believe in fae and other creatures? Or at least wouldn't criticize a girl who did?
Hi, I've just joined this community.I live in Sydney, Australia.I have always felt a strong connection to the Fae.I do a bit of faery art, and I also once wrote a short screenplay for children about a faerie who wished to become human.
at the bottom of the garden: a dark history of fairies, hobgoblins, nymphs, and other troublesome things by diane purkiss[link]basically, the author is making the connection from pre-fairy creatures to their transformation to what we think of now when we think "fairy". (or faerie, or faery, or however you want to spell it.) as i'm sure you've heard many times before, fairies were not always the sugar-coated, butterfly-winged pixies from victorian art. it wasn't really until shakespeare's a midsummer night's dream that a lot of modern fairy mythos started to emerge. (and even he was just piecing together parts of stories he'd heard.) before that, fairies were something else entirely.( review continues under a cut to spare your friends pagesCollapse )
Hi,I was hoping some of you could recommend some books for me to look out for?I'm just becoming acquainted with faerie, and I'd like to learn a lot more about it all - but I'm very much a beginner.The only book I currently possess is "The Faerie Oracle" - I forget the name of author, but it's written in conjuction with Brian Froud.Also, are there any websites you can recommend to me?Thank you =)~Hayley~
Wow. I am so in love with the amount of REAL Faerie-communities in LJ nowadays. Amazing, truly amazing.Anyway, some of you may already know me. I'm the founder of changelings and faeriefreedom. You may call me Zillah (I also have a Faerie name, but that of course is not revealed...), in "human years" I'm 24 years old (yeah right!) and live in Finland.I am a Faerie. I haven't called myself "human" in years. True, to a mortal's eye, I might LOOK like a human. But what is real...I have pointy ears. Violet skin. Large dragonfly-ish wings just below my shoulders. Greener than green eyes and toussled brownish-red hair.Sometimes this human disguise falls off for a moment. Once I was walking in my home town (in Finland), when a little girl about 5 years old came to me and told me she likes my wings.I couldn't stop smiling for the rest of the day.I have been to Faerie realms twice, two experiences that have left in me a horrible longing to go back home.I share my life with three Faeries. Wright, who is a pixie (like I believe I might be) and has been a faithful companion for over three years. Enna, who is a "common Faerie", is a lovely nightlight and who giggles a lot. (Enna also has a brother called Enjah, but I haven't seen him in a while...)I also had a Dream Weaver called Abelard, but after an unfortunate incident, he hasn't been a part of my life in years... My new Dream Weaver is called Agaídia and I come to appreciate her more and more each night.OK... I guess that's it... But, again, it's LOVELY to find more people with similar interests. I hope this will turn out very good.
hey everyone! i made a few small banners for the community. if you want, you can take them and post them in your journal or userinfo with a link back here. (think of them as a way to make your info page prettier.) ;3 might be a good idea to upload them to your own photobucket if my bandwidth craps out.enjoy!

I'm a green lady (a type of faerie) and I am stepping out to say 'hello'.
Hi, I'm new here. My name is Kelly, and magick, and faeries, and all things fantasy are my world. I am a firm believer in many things, including many things unseen.I am a writer, and a photographer. I am also a storyteller.There really isn't much more to say about me.I guess a picture is all that's left?( ice queenCollapse )
