Faery Tales:

The Changeling

Faeries occasionally become captivated with a human child.  It is well known that they sometimes exchange a young faery creature for a human one.  What is less well known is that the kidnapped human child tends to fare far better than the substituted faery child.  Such was the case with the faery baby, Aluin.  This is his story.

While this story is (loosely) a retelling of Faust as a female character, it also contains classic elements of faery tales.

Conflict Resolution Dances

Fairies, Elves, and members of many Regional Tribes resolve some conflicts through dance. Typically, this is done when the conflict is between two individuals. Occasionally, it is done when groups of Folk are involved.
