    There are faeries in your back yard garden.

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Wreybies, Aug 19, 2009.

    One exceptionally fine spring day you are in your back yard garden enjoying the beauty of Nature coming into bloom. As you admire the thickets of flowers and vines fecund with bloom you notice that what you had mistaken for bees and birds are in fact faeries!

    [​IMG]

    They play and frolic and invite you into their games.

    Do you tell anyone of your discovery?

    Nope, I capture and enslave them, as a part of my plans for world domination.

    I would maybe tell Joel, but probably not anyone else. Even telling Joel is a maybe. I would just keep them my little secret and go sit with them while I wrote.

    I'd show/tell my daughter. That's probably about it.

    Yes, atleast a couple of people, because faeries arent always of the "good" nature. I'd let a few people know in case they planned on over taking me. haha

    Of course. Everyone thinks I'm out of my mind, anyway. They'd think I was planning a story.

    No. I'd probably observe them, try to communicate with them, leave them some little nibbles of food...as fairies apparently like this. I would probably write a note though, outlining what I had found and where it was, and leave it for my family in case I mysteriously vanish. That way they'd know fairies too me. :)

    I put their play garden on fire and watch as their little wings begin to burn. Laugh as I get pleasure from their cries of help.

    Since they are such a cordial host, I think I should return their hospitality. I would hope that by showing kindness for kindness that I would grow in their knowledge, fulfill some of my own fantasies and be let to see nature through her stewards eyes.

    I wouldn't tell anyone at first. I'd love to have them float all around me and we could play together. After a while I'd tell someone I absolutely trusted.

    I don't think I would tell anyone. Though I may use the whole thing as plot for a novel. But I don't trust anyone enough(sad I know) with this sort of thing. I think they would try and use them for money and such.

    Now if it were the Underpants Gnomes, I think I would tell my buddies :p

    No. Just in case i was insane. I might capture one in a jar and leave it on the table. If anyone notices, it means im not insane, and then i tell people.

    Yeah.

    In no way, shape or form is that at all disturbing.

    Yes. I sincerely believe that if faeries exist (which they probably do) one had an affair with one of my ancestors.

    That works for me. I am strongly convinced one of my Uncles has Neanderthal DNA.

    No. I will be dragged to a fairy kingdom, be enslaved for a hundred years, and don't remember anything, not even my name, if ever these hundred years have an end ... Nor will you :rolleyes:

    Grof!, ev'ryone should know this! ...

    I would totally do things with them. It would be friggin' awesome. I'd probably bring them to Target and totally be like, "They're my best friends, not yours! Ha!" :D

    Holy crap. Three pages before anyone remembered that faeries are notoriously amoral. Remember folks, playing with faeries is like playing with fire. It's all fun and brightness, and then some genius breaks out the gasoline.

    Telling people waits until I have at least photographic evidence, and hopefully a lot more than that.

    Before telling anyone, I'd have to make sure that I wasn't absolutely out of my mind/alone in my ability to see these creatures. Have a complete psychiatric evaluation. Take pictures or video, perhaps.

    If it turned out I wasn't crazy, I would probably move. I don't think I could trust faeries.
