Let’s get one thing straight. When a human child stops believing a fairy does not die. We can’t die. We can be killed – with difficulty – but we can’t die.
We can, however, get threadbare. But fairies are adaptable and when the new opportunity came along we grabbed it with both hands. It was so simple. We flowed gleefully into this magic new world and took it for our own.
Now every time a human being logs on to the Internet it’s an act of faith and we fae are as fat as marmalade cats.
Fairy dos: formerly known as Peaseblossom.
