Fairies: life is not what it seems
Gabriella Harding’s post Away with the Lincoln Fairies inspired this post.
Fairies are most prominent in children’s stories, the most famous probably being Wendy in Peter Pan. Surprisingly, they don’t feature in any of our children’s books (yet), but magic does in Ray Wooster’s Michael’s Magic Motor Car.
In adult books, fairy is often used as an adjective and descriptor such as fairy feet, fairy cake.
TSL books have a few mentions of fairy used as adjectives:
Leslie Tate – Heaven’s Rage
Sue Hampton – Ravelled and other stories
Jane Lockyer Willis – Tea at the Opalaco
