home is nowhere, therefore you - Chapter 1 - Ark - The Witcher (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
"Right, well," Jaskier says, when he halts before Geralt. Up close, he looks much more nervous. There is sweat on his brow and his collar is damp with it, and his teeth keep catching on his lower lip. "True love's kiss. There's—ah—there's nothing to it." And he bends, the utter imbecile, and kisses Geralt full on the mouth.

Once a King in Narnia, Always a King in Narnia
It’s not every day an enchanted wardrobe containing a portal to another Realm turns up on set. It is, unfortunately, an everyday occurrence for Jensen’s co-star to curiously poke at potentially dangerous things. When Jared decides to channel his inner Sam Winchester and go looking for Narnia, despite Jensen’s warnings, Jensen figures he’d better channel his inner Dean Winchester and go in after him.
What they find, changes everything.

In the Halls of the Mountain Kings | Lapsus Lima
Our understanding of fairy belief – and, in particular, our ability to grasp why people took it so seriously – can be hampered by the folkloric garb and language in which our imaginations and culture shroud them. We relentlessly categorise them as entities that belong to folklore and, therefore, to the past. The usefulness of experimenting with alternative language to describe fairy encounters – language not particularly associated with folklore, such as that of science fiction – is that it allows us to explore the terrifying potential depth of fairy belief and why it proved so resilient and so fear-engendering from Ireland to Iceland until very recent times. Forget aliens, ghosts and monsters: is there really anything more terrifying than the almost human?

The Fairy King’s advice on Trees. A poem from Early Ireland
This medieval Irish poem about trees is taken from a text known as Aidedh Ferghusa meic Léide (the Death of Fergus). In the poem, Iubhdán, the king of the fairies, advises the ruler of Ulster, Fergus mac Léide, on the special qualities of trees and which ones can be burned in the household fire.

Fairies: A Dangerous History, Sugg
"Don’t be fooled by Tinkerbell and her pixie dust—the real fairies were dangerous. In the late seventeenth century, they could still scare people to death. Little wonder, as they were thought to be descended from the Fallen Angels, and to have the power to destroy the world itself. Despite their modern image as gauzy playmates, the fairies feared by ordinary people caused them to flee their homes, to revere fairy trees and paths, and to abuse or even kill infants or adults held to be fairy changelings. Such beliefs, along with some remarkably detailed sightings, lingered on in places well into the twentieth century. Often associated with witchcraft and black magic, fairies were also closely involved with reports of ghosts and poltergeists.
"In literature and art, the fairies still retained this edge of danger. From the wild magic of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, through the dark glamour of Keats, the improbably erotic poem "Goblin Market," or the paintings inspired by opium dreams, the amoral otherness of the fairies ran side-by-side with the newly delicate or feminized creations of the Victorian world. In the past thirty years, the enduring link between fairies and nature has been robustly exploited by eco-warriors and conservationists, from Ireland to Iceland. As changeable as changelings themselves, fairies have transformed over time like no other supernatural beings. And in this book, Richard Sugg tells the story of how the fairies went from terror to Tink."

For they have the same hiding place - sassafrasx
Harry doesn’t think much about it at first. Doesn’t think much of anything at all beyond the way the sun glints off Eggsy outside a police station, the stubborn, contained belligerence in his body, how Harry can’t help but smirk a bit as he tilts his head in consideration.

This will be fun.

// Eggsy turning out to be the changeling son of the faerie queen herself is a bit more fun than Harry had bargained for. [8,930 words]
