The thing about faeries is,
The thing about faeries is, they do not actually show up
The thing about faeries is, they do not actually show up until you are not looking for them.
Faeries are tricksters by nature.
Mischievous, sure. But not hostile.
Always dangerous, even when kind.
Life does not mean to fae what it means to us.
Safety does not mean to fae what it means to us.
Comfort does not mean to fae what it means to us.
Though, sometimes Comfort does mean to us what it means to fae.
We have learned from Them, after all.
(Do not remind the fae of this fact. They are big headed enough as is.)
And so, fae are dangerous
And so, fae are dangerous primarily because they are unaware that they are.
They know that, compared to us, they are powerful.
They are aware of their capacity to harm us.
They do not realize their capacity to harm our souls.
For better or for worse, they never will.
But I am sure you already know why not to go looking for fae.

The fae will not love.
But the fae may protect
But the fae may protect, especially if you do not realize you need protecting.

Do not turn down the protection of a fae.
Do not invite it, either.
For faeries do not hold out their hand to you
For faeries do not hold out their hand to you unless you have no one else to reach for.
