"All ye who enter here be warned! The folk occasionally abscond with small children and socks."

~The Fair Folk

:onfire: :onfire:
PS. We also like to set things on fire.

But now that you have been warned, feel free to submit art and stories about your favorite myths, legends, and folktales. This includes modern myths and surreal work as well. Main topic is the Fair folk of Celtic and Gaulish myth.


For information on joining thefairfolk.deviantart.com/blo…

:dygel: Members can submit blog ideas as well so please don't hesitate to write up interesting tidbits that you have found about your favorite immortal beings. These should be somewhat informative but it you are just pitching a book that's fine too.

There are discussions going on in the blogs section!

We also have a chat room here: chat.deviantart.com/chat/Thefa…

Please be respectful and courteous to other members.

Hello,

Since I have had a hard time officiating the group, eve with some new ideas like a chat or contests, I think its time I step down and find 1 or 2 other people to take over. I can still act in brief as an admin but I don't think I can keep this group running as much as I would like.

Is there anyone who would be willing to help keep this group going?

Please comment here or message me.

Best,

Glim

Yes - they're absolutely within the tradition of depictions of fairies - look at the works of classic victorian painters such as Richard Dadd, for example.

Does anyone know the name of a fairy tale about a girl whose mother dies, and her father has to remarry whoever fits her mothers shoe. But the only person who fits is the daughter and she has to run away and dress in a full leather outfit and work as a servant to escape? I think its from the middle east or Egypt if you remember its name please tell me. Thanks.
