The most controversial story known in West Yorkshire involving fairies was the case of the Cottingley fairies, it was
brought about in the north of England called West Yorkshire by two girls who claimed to have seen and taken photos of fairies
in the glen of Cottingley. The truth is that they had faked the photos to convince adults that had gone to see if the allegations
where true, but they still claimed even though they had done this terrible thing by lying about the pictures, they still wanted
people to believe that they had really seen these fairies.
History of Fairies;
Fairies are small supernatural creatures of human form. Some fairies were good and some were thought to be pretty frightening,
whilst being onset of Christianity, these creatures whilst still a Myth and legend, grew less forbidding and less powerful
over the centuries.
Fairies are so prevalent in mythical cultures that its natural to wonder where
they came from. Some people believe that fairies are the soul of the dead.. E.g. which are people that wasnt thought to be
good enough to enter into Heaven but yet not bad enough for Hell.
How to see Fairies;
Humans rarely see fairies, but Legend says that if you pick a four-leaf
clover and lie quietly in a field, you will soon be visited by dancing fairies.
can also look for a stone with a naturally hole coursed by running water, just look down the hole and you will see fairies.
are said to appear most frequently on high days of the Celtic calendar E.G. (May Eve) when they fight, (Midsummer Eve) when
they celebrate and (November Eve) when they dance with ghosts and lament the coming of water.
History behind the Elf;
As the longest-lived species known in the World, elves hold a special
place in the imagination and the land. Though reclusive and notoriously stingy with giving out information about them, it
is quite commonly known that elves have some relation to faeries and other magical arboreal creatures, though exactly what
the link is remains unknown, even to most elves.
The long life of an elf makes
them cautious, for they have much to lose by making a thoughtless choice, and much time to contemplate things to avoid doing
just so. Elves culture is incredibly conservative and well established. The few elves that are seen extant in the World are
those that the community has sent out so that their nation might not be caught unawares by events outside the boundaries of
Elves are known for a natural affinity with magic, but this may be related more to the long years they have
to study their chosen art than a true talent. Similar legends about elves prowess with bow, sword, and nearly any other weapon
or skill one can think of may have similar sources.
Even Santa as Elves in the North Pole and what they do is help him over the year to sort out all the letters
from the children in the world looking for all the good girls and boys that deserve a special present, from the ones that
havent been so good, but the good thing is they never leave anyone out, The Elves also look after the reindeers and make the
toys for Santa to hand out on Christmas Eve.
A short story about the Elfs;
Santas Elves always have a tough time keeping up with jolly St. Nicholas on Christmas Eve, since Santas sleigh
isnt big enough to carry all the toys to the girls and boys around the world, so what they have to do, is all rally around
and make it as fast and easy as possible to help Santa deliver the toys before the end of the night because they wouldnt want
to disappoint any of the children and that shows how wonderful they all are :) Santa
is one lucky man!!
History behind the Pixie;
are tiny magical creatures born into existence, they are whimsical creatures with no real purpose, and their history is one
primarily of peace and quiet. Pixies spend most of their time studying magic, although they are wont to take it particularly
seriously. They have enjoyed a good life of leisure and comfort in the forests. The darkest hour for pixies came with the
evolution of llaiadains, pixies that lost their wings. These were evil pixies that had committed crimes against the pixie
kingdom. Their existence forced the pixies to become more vigilant in their own protection, for they now had a mortal enemy.
Since then, many pixies devote their lives to protecting forests, as opposed to just living in them. The growth of civilization
and its infringement on the pristine, natural land has also forced pixies into more action.
Pixies also have wings that are iridescent, often casting beautiful colours about, reflecting the light, as they hover.
With wings they naturally can fly. They also have the natural ability to turn invisible, which happens to be uncontrollable
since it is their natural state. Due to their small size, pixies are incredibly dexterous and can move very quickly. Most
pixies do care about their looks, since they can be very beautiful and exotic looking. Some are less interested, and they
are not in general, overly obsessed with their looks.
The more popular
view of the pixies' origin is the same as with most fairies: pixies come from the land of Faerie. This place has numerous
names, and confused descriptions. Some people claim it is an underground kingdom, some claim it is an distant island, and
more recently, some claim it is a separate dimension, linked to this one. It is also said that the pixies have their own realm
within the land of Faerie, called Pixy land
