Hm.... honestly I just read through this... it's off of a website.... and I don't remember which one.

Well I do agree with you on that some what. But the not believeing in the blood.... well that's a little different.

You might want to be careful about that...I've seen a lot of the supposed informational websites out there on fey/fae/faerie/faery/fairy, and a lot of them aren't work the bytes they're written in.  Heck, a lot of the books aren't worth the paper and ink.  There are a few good books...Katharine Briggs' encyclopedia for example, but I've never seen what I consider a good comprehensive website on fey lore.  I personally have never heard of the hive mind thing you referenced earlier.  That's not to say it doesn't necessarily exist (there are more things on Heaven and Earth...), but it's so far from my individual experience I'd want to check the source as credible before I accepted it as a reasonable alternative.  The internet and easy-web-page-creators have given a voice to everyone, no matter how wrong they are, so one REALLY has to be careful to check sources on the internet.  There may be certain subtypes of fey that have, or seem to have, a sort of hive mind, but it does not apply to all.

Well I do agree with you on that some what. But the not believeing in the blood.... well that's a little different.

That's OK.  We can disagree and still play nicely Smiley

UGH....I'm glad the silver trick was mentioned....someone close to me is to Fae what i am to imps....a freaking beacon...and naturally because we are close...they LOVE to fuck with me....

They are quite mischievous little things...or at least the ones that mess with me are...they love taking things when im looking for them and making them reappear either a long time later, and/or in another unexpected location...(seriously...wierd things like my shoe on top of the TV after an hour trying to find it...try explaining THAT to a teacher when ure late)

Also...i find that they do have some kind of interconnected mind....or at least these do...because if i get my hands on one...i can sense reactions from all of them....(though normally i don't have to get sadistic...just a nice little fireball is the extent that they usually tolerate before returning stolen goods.....though its a whole different matter to ACTUALLY hit them....they're quite evasive...but i have not found em to be much on retaliation....they just pull more pranks)

From what i can surmise from observation they may be pixies or something to that effect....they're not rooted in any physical place like plants or anything like that...but rather just like to phase in and out of our realm and theirs...


Also...does anyone have data on some beasts from the farie realm...i encountered a few and would like some data before any more come...(theyre really annoying).....i encountered two...

First one is like a white dog....kinda like a Pomeranian, only slightly higher than my knee. its growl was audible on a physical level....i thought it was a guardian or familiar...but its energy felt more like fairies than anything else. its bite, however is not that impressive (ive seen more jaw power in a Yorkie...). It did, however have a odd magickal attack, in which it howls with white light (i expected it to be a immediate blast like a hellhound) which then envelops the target in that white light and prevents energy flow. (they are weak to "physical" astral attacks, however)

The second was like a white fox with a black head...only elongated to about 2-3 times the natural length....its movements are aerial yet fluid, which is unusual. it seemed water element, as it was unaffected by "physical" attacks, and just regenerated back to its shape and form no matter how i sliced it, diced it and blasted it.....its attacks are usually involving its claws or teeth, with the exception of a energetic attack originating from its eyes. the only weakness i found in that thing was electric energy....it does NOT like anything from magnetism to electric lighting, to electric energy attacks.

Also of note, the second beast seems to have a passive relative, which shares the same form with the variance being a white head. It was not aggressive so i have no data on attack patterns or attributes, but it seemed to be quite intelligent.

Were there any markings on the dog? Specifically brown of any shade? It sounds familiar, but I'm not sure what it's called. If it has brown spots and/or markings, I think I may know what it is. With certain markings it's definitely a type of astral dog (XD obviously), associated with holy energies but generally more passive. It likes to intimidate people, growling and such, when they're doing something "wrong". It doesn't come out unless there's a problem of some sort, and then its demeanour should give away its intents. It's not uncommon to see one in a vision, whether whining or growling, when something is awry in a person's life. The stance would depend on the situation, and what the person's role in the situation is.

Hope this helps. A friend (much more prone to visions than myself) explained this to me last year. I can get back to her with more specifics, if this sounds right. But it is mostly white, and not very vicious, as per your description. But it always has the brown markings (though I'm not sure how dark of a brown they are. I know they can be tan, but it might also manifest as dark brown.)

This one was pure white...no brown in it....it wasn't very aggressive at first other than growling...though it responded to my precaution with aggression...either way it has not shown up since then...considering the circumstances myself and a friend agree that these things were sent by someone, which i seriously hope, as it should be a lesson to them what happened to those two.

...Besides...with how versatile the fox was...not to mention aggressive....I think my little aggressor will leave me alone now...XP

Oh... yeah, then it might have been sent by someone. =P Solid seems easier to manage than marked, for things like that. And it was certainly not what I was thinking of, then. Never had any clue about the fox, though.

Incidentally, does anyone know of short (1 foot abouts) critters that like to change up forest paths? Like, they'll take a path that you know leads to a different area, and bend it so it goes somewhere else? I had a stressful encounter with them one night. I was looking for a specific area of wood where I was going to meditate, and I could sense little critters in the woods. They stayed out of sight, but the woods were especially quiet that night. Stole a fricking pin of mine, and a glove. Found the glove later, but not my pin. It wasn't very expensive, but it was just annoying.

Fae, eh? I've seen plenty of fairy rings among the grass before, pretty interesting how they do that. A couple of my friends claim them to be thieves of certain things, such as my quartz specimens that vanished and never to be found again. I'm kind of doubtful its in their nature to steal stuff, though.

Weird. ::shrugs:: No reason for me to go after them  to get my quartz back anyway. Last thing I need is an army of Fae after my ass.

Those attackers up there.. sounds very cool, BTW. I encountered a dog-like spirit back then years ago on the Turks & Caicos Islands. It took on the form of a flaming dog, all blue fire with red fire eyes; it walked on the surface of the ocean in one of the beaches. Didn't seem to be aggressive, just slightly curious. Since then, I've encountered a fair number of such spirits in different forms, some aggressive and some very friendly.

Unfortunately canines are only related as such...they have the same general shape...need more data to confirm a link between the two species....perhaps theres a link to hellhounds with the fire...but i doubt it..they usually are red fire if they ignite.

I've been browsing around the web... and that fox sounds like a construct. Don't know who had a grudge against you, but someone wasn't very happy. The dog... sounds like it's made of an odd form of energy. I don't know if I'd be able to identify what that was. It sounds like something was commanding it, but unless you're good at registering these things, we won't know for sure if it acted of its own or on orders.

::shrugs:: At that time, I wasn't aware and wasn't trained just yet. If I was, then I'd have done a deep-scan on the flaming dog.

Anyway, I think this is straying from the appropriate topic already..

POSTED BY ECLECTA MAR 15, 2006

I read somewhere recently when trying to get a better understanding of Fae, that they are prone to lying and are sometimes tricksters?  Is this fact or myth?

According to lore, fae are in capable of telling an outright lie (knowingly). However, they are very much interested in playing mind games and tricking people. After all, while they cannot lie to you, they might twist the truth. Also, never, ever enter into contracts with them since you will inevitably lose - they are masters of such nonsense and make the most slimy lawyers look clean as a whistle when it comes to inserting little things here and there that you might miss.

Having read over some of the older posts, someone claimed that they tend to be happy glitter-bugs and I would like to strongly oppose that notion. Pixies and some of the smaller fae may be like that but the sidhe are by no means glitter bugs nor are they smiley or giddy creatures. People would do well to remember that the faerie folk break into two courts: Seelie and Unseelie. Now, despite the notions constantly tossed about, they are not 'good' and 'evil.' According to lore they break up the rule of the year with the Seelie ruling Spring and Summer and the Unseelie taking dominion in the Fall (at Samhain) and relinquishing control during the spring equinox (Lughnasdh? Or was that in February...). The Unseelie tend to be fae related to darkness, cold, death, nightmares, dead leaves, frost, snow, the moon, and so on. They tend to be dark creatures and prefer shadows to light, hence their rule during the darker months of the year. Seelie fae are associated with light, warmth, sunlight, flowers, children's dreams and so forth. Typically they are depicted as wearing floral wreathes and the like as well as having children amongst them.

Neither court is more or less malicious than the other, both are equally dangerous. Fae have an intricate system of manners and ritual of sorts and gods help you if you accidentally violate them. Unfortunately, a mortal being could spend a lifetime amongst them and never truly understand all the rules since there are so many and the fae mind is almost utterly alien to that of a non-fae. The reason for this, largely, is that they are immortal creatures and after so long they become bored with sex, food, and other such physical pleasures. However, art and music are redolent in fae culture simply because they are always changing and since they glamour things, artisans must compensate for the lack of delicate skill required with the extravagance of their creations.

With fae, the coin of the realm lies in favors for, after all, what good are material things to creatures made of dreams? They can create jewels, gold, and all other such things at a whim so physical goods mean little. Though all fae like shiny things to some extent. However, favors are exceptionally valuable, since fae - once their oath is given - will inevitably obey the words the utter. Unfortunately, they do not listen to the spirit of the words. Again, those without experience in the field and even those with experience in the field ought to use extreme caution when agreeing to anything. Particularly so, never leave an open-ended deal. Never trade 'a favor' for information now because they will inevitably tap into their most onerous side and cause you to do the most loathesome tasks possible. Or things that you will deeply regret doing. I cannot stress enough how dangerous this is and I must warn against any sort of dealing with the fae in the terms of contracts or any exchange.

The bane of all faerie creatures is cold iron. It damages the glamour in them and burns them terribly. If you have a problem with the creatures this is a way of preventing them from entering or accessing your home and area but it is not recommended because they will likely develop true venom for you and in that case you may find yourself in more trouble later. Salt lining a doorway and lintel and so on will prevent them from entering a room without necessarily causing them pain or insulting them - that is a vastly more improved methodology of dealing with an 'infestation' of faeries or any other metaphysical creature (with some exceptions.)

This information comes from a study of faerie stories (mostly Celtic in origin) and personal experience. While I do not profess to be an otherkin, directly, I think I have fae in my blood somewhere. It's not a matter of spirit, but being a fully blooded Celt it is inevitable that somewhere in my heritage the fae mixed with my family's line somehow. I have also had extensive dealings and interaction with the fae, enough to have learned why you do not make pacts and so on without being very, very careful.

OK wow This all of this is even more ' helpful then before and heck i could even relate to some of this with my people's and wow particularly with what you said in how you see them to be in your mind is way cool' and  makes sense and i realized something clicked inside me and i was like wow .


Now i am sure every Fae and people would have different takes on this and I would have to take everything with a grain of salt but ; in the end  very cool either way thanks for clearing things up and for the info every one.

Very interesting Smiley When I was younger I could have sworn I was of Fae. Maybe I was simply a mischievous, sly, happy and easily distracted child with too much energy for a "normal" signature, lol. However, even though I've Awakened to my Vampiric self a few years ago, I still have Fae-like tendencies, and wonder if it's not a crossover. This thread has been helpful in my wonderings Smiley Thanks!

Ah. About lying.. assuming I was/am part Fae, I've always had tendencies to be cryptic, dance around topics with specific wording, and stretch the truth just a tiny bit, but... more and more these things have proved to be counterproductive, because I believe the truth should be open and available... mostly, lol. So I've been "righting" myself for some time. Will I ever learn? Who knows, haha XD
