Title: Fae... What is it exactly?
Post by: Monster Master on March 24, 2007, 10:24:00 pm
Okay, I am new to the website, but am not new to the paranormal. I have a great knolege of ghosts, UFOs, Vampires, and werewolves. But pics of these creatures amaze me at how beautifully and mysteriously drawn they are. Like in my profile pic. So what exactly are they?

What are the fey?  Bad s**t.

They will kill you for fun.  If you are lucky.  So stick to the folklore.  But there's the Seelie and the Unseelie, supposedly the good and the bad.  But there's really not that much difference between the two.  One is bound by a set of rules, the other's not.  However their rules are not our rules, and just because they have rules doesn't make them any less dangerous.

A Fey outside a glamor can be killed with a cell phone.

You know, I was reading through your post Nightwolf, and through most of it I was right there with ya, and then I reached the last sentence and I was all "LOL WUT"...

Any advanced tech will break a Fey's abilities and cause physical harm if they aren't guarded against it.  It used to be cold iron, but that's just the steel technology at work.  These days any advanced tech will do it, if you break the glamour.  But don't think that just having a cell phone, laptop, or even a gun handy will save you even if you can break it.  And generally I'm guessing that most people here wouldn't know how.

The Fey are nasty, and worse they're bored.  Problem with being immortal.  But yeah, don't mess around with them.  The best case scenario is that you'll die.

I hope that clarifies the cell phone statement.

theyre essentially spirits whose purpose is to carry out a specific duty or they are the embodiement of that duty i.e frost blooming flowers death illness
they operate without the progmadity of human dogma which essintially makes them unable to fully comprehend human principal and need for order.

Beware the Seelie and Unseelie courts. They are not to be trifled with or attacked. Those without Sight find it difficult to even see them let alone fight them. They are not Tinkerbell.

Folklore is the main way of knowing what the fae are. Its not like you can just walk out to a mushroom ring in your garden and see one. And they arent all evil. Fae covers alot of different breeds of what are generaly accepted to be forest folk or nature spirits. Fairies, pixies, gnomes, brownies. You tend to find most are friendly enough as long as you dont look at them but dont ignore anything that i there work. Such as don't look at one, the may make you go blind as people arent supposed to be able to see them, but if one talks to you he/she wants to be seen so dont ignore them. If you get up one morning and your kitchen has been cleaned but no one did it, then leave out some milk, cheese and small clothes, doll clothes would do, or you might upset the Brownie who cleaned your mess. Dont ever purposely look for a fae, they hate being spied on more than just being seen but if one grabs for your attention give them it undivided, never go with a fairy. If it invites you anywhere never go, if it offers you food never eat it, and if it invites you to dance fein an injury, all these things lead to you being taken away by them to either never come back or come back hours, days, weeks, months or years later. Similar to alien abduction. Its is believed by some due to amazing similarities between fairies and ufo obduction that they may be one and the same, fairy glamour (the ability that makes fairies invisible or makes them look like other people or animals) could adapt for the modern day as people today are more willing to believe in aliens than magic in modern day, or vive versa, aliens obducted people all those years ago and fairies were the easiest way to explain it back then.

 Cell phone?? Are you serious??  Viscous creatures thousands of years old are going to be killed with a cell phone?? And everyone has rules. Including both courts. Whether you understand them or not, that's on you. But the rules exist. The "Sight"... you don't so much see them as feel them.... Demons are seen more easily.

Milk, cheese are good ideas but clothes aren't. Brownies and many other kind of fey who can be found in human houses tend to find the gift of clothes an insult or a disrespect and much prefer their own clothing, no matter how tatty it may appear.

Also, don't leave out too much food, this can interpreted as an insult as well.

Had a wee look at my books and you are right enough. Clothing is usualy a no-no. And leave out food portions of fey size.

Probably why it's a good idea to know who just helped you before leaving an appropriate gift   :wink: like the examples Angelus gave above.

Post by: Angelus on September 02, 2009, 01:46:27 pm
They dont. They arent here for your convenience. They dont give a s**t about people. Just so happens people usualy are involved in there jokes and fun. The will help (clean/repair shoes, clean kitchens, leave gifts, cook food) if they are living in your house. They can sometimes just be nuisences but thats usualy if you offend them. Theres hundreds of different breeds so some arent as nice as others.

 I wouldn't even know where to find it anymore. They usually end up taking my favorite shows off TV or just making them so stupid and crazy that they aren't worth watching anymore.

 I've often wondered how many fey are responsible for hikers disappearing and similar such things....

Crystal Swan. You are not the first person nor the last to come here claiming to have had personal relations with Fae, I know my comments here are all based on research of folklore due to me never having met one. Now, your comment implies that we all have bad auras. How do you know? You have met none of us, you also imply that we are somehow lower or dumber than you for not knowing what you know from "personal" experience. There are many people on this site that will be interested in your experience but with the attitude you have displayed here you may find many people here just tell you that you are a liar or mentally unsound. You will make enemies and will be ridiculed. We are not here to rag on your beliefs and you should speak with more respect when addressing others who have not had the experience you claim you were fortunate enough to have had.

Also the plural of Fae is not Fae's. it's just Fae, like sheep.
Aura, not Ora.
And speak, not speek.

This is not an acceptable post.

do you people even talk to fae's..................I did not think so because you have bad oras if speek good of them they see you as a freind0:) if speek bad of them they see you as a fiend3:).


Ignoring how offensive you were trying to be, this is.

Do you people even talk to Fae? I did not think so, because you have bad auras. If you speak good of them they see you as a friend, if speak bad of them they see you as a fiend.



And welcome to monstrous.

In my experiences you don't speak with them as much as feel and sense them (like any other intangible natural energy) just as they can feel and sense your energy. different races have different attitudes towards humans for various reasons.  I'm particularly fond of the flora fairies and aerial spirits, i think my green thumb, knack for resurrecting dead or dying plants and aptitude for cultivating them from hand picked garden seeds suggests they can be very fond of humans, even if they don't work with them, personally. Not to mention all the fairy stories about them falling madly in love with humans, tricking them into spending years in their boughs and inflicting terrible fates if they're passionate affections are rebuffed, constantly testing the goodness of a human's heart and soul through various interactions both physical and spiritual...they definitely do enjoy interacting with us.  They're wild energies that really have no comprehension of what it's like to be flesh, but find it fascinating. 

Legend, the movie i think portrays their various natures wonderfully, like Oona says; "What care I for human hearts? Soft and spiritless as porridge! A faerie's heart beats fierce and free!" and the animated movie Fairies (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Faeries-The-Movie-DVD/dp/B0006I027M) elaborates on their aspects and how it can get complicated when they do become fond of certain humans but my favorite book about them would be this fantastic read (http://www.amazon.com/Faerie-Tale-Raymond-Feist/dp/0553277839/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1349384181&sr=1-1&keywords=fairie+tale), however there is a difference between working with them through magick and just being naturally attuned with the earth and all it's energies, positive and negative.

But I've been called a naturalist, the earth's been sustaining life for a lot longer than any human's lived it and was doing fine before we came along with our overpopulation, superiority complex and need for immediate gratification and luxury items. i can understand why many would not like humans. I'm not often fond of humanity and I'm part of it but like all things spiritual, nature spirits can sense a person's true heart and judges the person by their nature and deeds.  Humans make judging a person complicated and full of facades, biased pretenses and personal perceptions.

my dad liked brownies and would always leave milk out for them and i think i should work more at attuning to earth energies for personal grounding, I'm way to airy in thought and action and have been thinking a lot of the shoemaker and his elves story(pertaining to my limited funds and materials for metal smithing.)

that's what fairy tales are for...

Personally, I don't think they'd care about human auras, being formed from the earth as we were, they just know a person's natural energy, we silly humans live by assigning a title to everything, they live by feeling everything of the earth.

fairies are just a humanized form of animism and every story has a grain of truth.

I think it's a perfectly acceptable post.  If you disagree with what she says, then refute it.  I don't know why you seem to think that just because it will offend people that it automatically becomes unacceptable to post.

Please let's not resort to personal name calling. Strongly expressed opinions are one thing but let's not get personal about things. A lot of people have a lot of different beliefs about who and what the fae are, because you don't agree with what their perceptions are doesn't justify personal insults.

Why is everyone claiming the fay as evil creatures? Sure sometimes they can be a little mischivous, but they are really cute and funloving creatures. The only evil one I can think of is Morgana LeFay, and she was a bit of a baddy, but all in all the fay are really sweet.

See that's the issue with many spiritual things, people fail to realize they are natural things with some form of intelligence that we are at some level able to interact with(just my opinion). Nature isn't good or evil, humans make that choice and bestow biased titles on such things.

I tend to have a folksy, earthly belief concerning the fae, Morgan lefay doesn't count in my book, she's not derived from an original energy and developed in Arthurian Legend.
