Doing Our Best to Care for the Fae


Someone gave me a present. Isn’t she beautiful. We named her Bijou. As far as I can tell she’s just a normal snail except for her brilliant colors. But she does make an odd whistling noise sometimes.

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while, but…well…life. A few days ago, I trapped 2 little beasts that look something like guinea pigs but with bigger faces and a strange split lip. It should have been an easy job. They were nesting in a seniors’ complex not far from me. The house manager called me, frantic to get the beasts out of the building. She said they were destroying it. I’m used to such exaggerations from clients, and I thought, “Really, how much damage can 2 little rodents do.”

Okay, folks. Let’s talk dragons. There’s so much information and disinformation out there, it’s hard to know what is true and what is myth. Not only that, but how do we know if there are different breeds of dragons? I have very limited experience with these amazing creatures so I’d like to pool our knowledge and create a database of sightings and info.

I'm on an adventure outside our ward where I encountered some really interesting creatures. The first one is a shusher. I have never heard of this creature before. They may be a hybrid, created in the magic flares during the war.

The fun continues. I came face-to-face with an actual chimera recently. Now before you all start sending me irate messages that the term chimera is generic and misleading, I agree with you, but bear with me.

I want to thank everyone for their well-wishes. Yes, I am recovering nicely from my first encounter with a rock troll. If you missed that post, you can read all about it in the archives. Many of you asked for more information about the mysterious “Guardian” who faced the troll with me earlier this month. I did some digging and he is a gargoyle. For privacy reasons, I’ll leave out his name, but here’s what I’ve been able to dig up on this elusive race.

Banshee: from the Celtic root Bean and Sídhe, meaning Woman of the Faeries.

Like the family gods of ancient Rome, banshees act as conduits between the living and the dead. They are generally retained by the well-to do family of Celtic or Gaelic descent.
