Thank you @sherlove-freebatch for helping me find @pembroke who is the artist of our lovely little cartoon above!! Thanks for the inspiration for this little fic :)
Stiles doesn’t know exactly when it began. No, that’s a lie, it started with the Fairy Incident of July. What he means, is he doesn’t know when it became normal. The first time it happened was last year with those godforsaken fairies.
The Big Bad wasn’t exactly big, but damnit, they were mean.
It had begun as pranks almost, little things done around the pack as inconveniences and something to roll your eyes and sigh at. Things like adding blue hair dye to Isaac’s conditioner. (Scott’s blush when he let the word ‘cute’ slip made Stiles ‘aww’ resulting in a nice bruise on the arm from Isaac.) Then it was the thing where all the forks in Derek’s apartment up and disappeared. Then Boyd’s car got saran-wrapped.
Easy stuff, really inconsequential. Sure, it was annoying and made Erica wolf out when her favorite t-shirt had a smiley face cut out of it, but it wasn’t like they were actually hurting them. Derek decided it was probably best to leave them alone and leave them shiny trinkets in the forest to keep the pranks from persisting.
It worked, too. (Crazy? Stiles definitely agrees.) They have a nice month of quiet and the settling feeling of their territory being at peace. Well, it was nice while it lasted.
1370 This was the precise year that Nacht and Elysia met, and at the same time, the same year Elysia died. The recent tale of Nacht meeting Elysia and stifling her power was something more of a perplexing tragedy, similar to that of greek mythos.
Elysia had met Nacht in the same manner as she meets most of her patients - they see out her help. It was a little after the black plague (early 1350s) that people would come to her in search of security and relief. Sanctity, even. She was considered a mother to the locals. She was a healer, or medicine woman. She could physically heal any ailment they might have…
Nacht sought her out and executed a simple plan. To romance and subdue her, and eventually kill her.
Nacht is a multi-faceted, manipulative woman.
more backstory, since @tweedabop ‘s wanting to do more world building.
Above is roughly how they’d appear in the same year. They do not appear visually different than a human to the common person. Only do fae, or immortal creatures see them as they trully are.
