Growth of a Forest Fae

They begin their lives as petite fae, dancing with the lights on the bottom of the forest, on its waters and moss-covered hills. Their wings, their magic, can barely hold them afloat, but as they explore, as they dance, their enchantments grow stronger.

They practice by flying higher, landing on branches as large as roads, walking on them with tiny steps until trying to reach the higher foliage again.

On their way higher they begin to grow. The forest is ancient and it takes them years to fly up, years as they grow in size and magic. The foliage begins to thin, small beams of light tease them, lure them higher.

Then one day they break through the leaves into the light and touch the dawn. It is a blinding moment after the safety of the dark embrace of forest shadows. Blinding moment of growth when all the roads are not only open, but non-existent. Sky is open, sky has no limits.

The last weekend of Fantasy Faire 2017 is upon us. The official event program ends on Sunday, but we will have a six-hour closing party on Monday to wrap things up thoroughly. The Fairelands stay open for visitors through May 4th, so feel welcome to stay, explore, shop and quest!

The Secrets of Fae Magic

“Let me tell you a secret,” the lavender fae whispered. “Let me tell you how we fae fly.” She paused, taking to air without as much as a flicker of her petal-covered wings. “The wings have nothing to do with it. Not anymore.”

“We fae can draw in ambient energies of imagination, we breathe it in, sense it in our surroundings like sunlight on skin. Just like daystar warms us, imagination and inspiration give us power.”

“We channel it and transform it into magic of another kind, of lights and music, of flight and sparkles, and most importantly; we channel it into dance. We laugh, dance, fly, live. They are the same.”
