I'm thinking about writing a story where a story where fae like beings and the like live side by side with humans. How different should they treat each other? Will humans treat humans differently based ethnicity? Or will they treat them better because they are human and not a "Monster"? How will the Fae ( species name pending) think of humans?

Howdy.

These are really questions that only you can answer. It will depend entirely on the world and the people you have created. The way they treat one another will hinge on their cultures and morals. 

Bias against things that are new and utterly different is pretty natural, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be long-term or detrimental to the species’ relationships. 

Things you can think about while answering these questions:

  • How long have the two species known of one another? Are they accustomed to each other’s presence? If they are multiple generations into their relationship, it might be much better as the children of both species will have grown up with Fae/human presence as the norm.
  • Is one species inherently the rulers of their mutual space, or are they relatively even in terms of power? AKA, is there room for oppression of one species or the other, or will they be well balanced?
  • What do elders teach children about the other species? How are human/fae children raised to view fae/humans?
  • Was there division among races of humans before the Fae? How volatile was “first contact” and how did that work to divide or unity the human races?

How humans and Fae treat one another will speak volumes about either species. Figure out what kind of relationship best compliments or drives your story, and use that. 

Hope that’s helpful.

Happy building!

Hi! I have a certain Fae species(don't have a name for them yet) with 4 races. These races are the seasons. Example with my Spring Fae race I want them to worship one Goddess named Wihnara and one of their racial duties is to wake plants, trees and animals for the changing of the seasons. Now I read your religion post and now I'm confused on what to do. How do I implement aspects like who they believed created the world and them?

Hello!

Keep in mind that my brainstorming series (this one being referenced) posts are made to help deepen your world when and where you need it. Not all of those questions are going to apply to every situation. So if something feels irrelevant to your story, then just ignore it. Maybe it will come in handy later, for another story.

If you want to think about those things, then you can. You can have an answer to that question but leave it out of the narrative. What do your Fae people believe was their origin? How do they view life, the universe, etc? Those answers can help you understand your people more, and that can often help your narrative feel more vibrant. But if it doesn’t apply to your story or characters, then there isn’t any reason you have to include those things. 

Hope that helps clear it up. I certainly don’t want to cause confusion!

Happy building

how to feel like a fairy princess at home 🌷

• keep fresh flowers or a mini succulent garden in a favorite spot of your room
• adorn the spaces above and around your bed with lights, faux-flower garlands, and flowy fabrics
• keep a little dish of dried fruits or nuts near your bed (for those tiny cravings of tiny foods)
• make a glittery mason jar, filling it with your secrets written on little scraps of paper
• let in the sunlight as much as possible
• display your fairytale books
• play soft, classical music and let the sounds flow out your window

Is it really a dream though? Try pushing your finger through your other hand. Of it works, then yeah. It's a dream. If not, no. It's real. Unless it's different for ghosts. Then IDK.

“Hmmm. Well I am a ghost now so I should be able to do this. Its pretty strange, though…”

“And the last thing I remember is falling asleep in the guest room so this has to be a dream.”
