fae creature

I found a curious pixie playing with broken glasses in the woods. He studied them carefully, but I do not think he would ever understand their use.

thesuninperigee  asked:

hello I would like to request the recipe for fairy cakes out of pure curiosity with zero intent to make anything

*gives you a stern measuring look* 

For the sponge:

  • 110g/4oz butter softened at room temperature
  • 110g/4oz caster sugar/baking sugar
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 110g/4oz self-raising flour
  • 1-2 tbsp milk

For the icing/frosting

  • 300g/10½oz icing sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • 2-3 drops food colouring of your choice.
  • Any other decorations you might want.

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F and line 2 x 12-hole fairy cake tins (cupcake tins) with paper cases. Cream together your butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale. Beat in the eggs, a little at a time, and stir in the vanilla extract MAKING SURE YOU STIR CLOCKWISE AND ABSOLUTELY NOT THE OTHER WAY IN AROUND UNLESS YOU WANT THE FAE ESCAPING

Fold in the flour using a large metal spoon. Add a little milk until the mixture is a soft dropping consistency and spoon the mixture into the paper cases until they are half full. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until golden-brown on top and a skewer inserted into one of the cakes comes out clean. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes, then remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.

For the icing, sift the icing sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir in enough water to create a smooth mixture. Stir in the food colouring and then drizzle over the cakes, sprinkle with decorations if you have them and set aside until the icing hardens. 

Devour before the fae folk find another way to find you.

Cult of Personality

Character A is Character B’s favorite singer. Actually, Character A seems to be everyone’s favorite singer. It seems like Character B can’t go anywhere without hearing one of Character A’s songs, or seeing a poster promoting one of Character A’s albums or tours. Their fandom spans ages, races, countries – the entire world seems to be united in their love for Character A. It would be a good thing, if Character B could figure out why. Sure, Character A is a great singer and rather attractive, but… No one’s that perfect.

It isn’t until Character B wins a fan contest for backstage passes to one of Character A’s shows that the truth finally comes out: Character A is an ancient fae, using the modern human tendency to flock to celebrities to have the fun they’re denied from the loss of the old fae ways.

I was thinking about the post suggesting humans would be to aliens like mythical Fae creatures, and this idea popped into my head.

So we’re stuck on the very outskirts of the intergalactic community and we’re a young race and very little knowledge about us has reached the main players on the intergalactic political stage. We’ve only had contact with our closest neighbours, who are a friendly enough bunch and have helped us along with technology and such, but we’re still working out some internal violence between nations, and having befriended us this little neighbouring Galactic race mostly leaves us alone to sort out our shit. But we like them so we give them the means to contact us with an offer to help them if we ever can.

A century or two later and we’re still not very involved outside our own planet but we’ve basically fixed our infighting and we’re working on building our fleets to go further and discover more. Our friendly neighbours get attacked by a warlike race bent on controlling this Galactic back water to use as a base for greater conquests, and things are going badly for them. In a last ditch effort to save themselves, they call the humans. They think that at least they can evacuate their weaker members to earth so not all their race will be enslaved or killed.

Queue a full on “the beacons are lit, Gondor calls for aid” moment - the newly formed coalition of human nations remembers the kindness of this species that was their first encounter outside their own planet, and they send an army.

And so our friendly neighbours find to their astonishment that they accidentally befriended Space Orcs who arrive on the Galactic stage in spectacular fashion by totally annihilating their fearsome attackers, and suddenly all the other Galactic nations want to ally with this backwater so the can get on the humans good side because damn they don’t want those scary humans to turn on them.

Today, while working on jewelry, I caught a little hobgoblin stealing one of my quartz crystals. He thought he could hide behind my succulent but it didn’t work so well. We had a nice little chat over some lemon cake and ice tea. Turns out he is looking for a home to call his own. It’s really better to know your own hobgoblin than to just guess at what is in your home. He’s a protective little creature who has an affinity for crystals. He really enjoys getting to dig them up.
His name is Pickrig and I’m here to help him find a home.

🌊 Contacting Mermaids 🌊

as some consider mermaids to be a type of fae creature, it is important to note they do not immediately trust humans and it is something to be done with caution. with some research into the lore, here is what i’ve come up with;

what you will need:

🌊 mirrors play a significant part in mermaid lore, so when contacting a mermaid, a mirror is the first thing needed. 

🌊 a shallow bowl of water

🌊 knowledge of / experience with astral traveling

🌊 a pendulum, or other tool of divination. 


procedure:

🌊 know what you want to talk to the mermaid about, and consider first the trust level you need when asking, as somethings are sensitive information. 

  • do you have questions regarding them, or magic?
  • do you wish to work with them on a spell?

🌊 place the mirror in the water, place offerings around the edges of the bowl. 

🌊 engage with the astral plane at least partially.

🌊 take your hand and place it in the water when you invoke the name of a mermaid. remove your hand immediately after. 

🌊 use the pendulum or method of divination to receive their answers. 

🌊 when you are done, place the offerings in the water and let sit. 

🌊 remove the mirror before you pour out the water, try to touch the water minimal amounts when removing. 


respect and safety: 

🌊  like any spiritual or magical creature, you must respect the ones you work with. however, mermaids are also known from lore to be hostile towards humans, particularly the bit with luring away and drowning. 

🌊  after contacting a mermaid, be wary of any music that strikes a chord with you, and approach it carefully, as music is their primary way of luring “sailors” and other humans to their destruction. 

🌊  after first contact, either protect yourself with spells or continue to give offerings to the mermaid, as you have denied them the bounty they were after, – a human to drown. 

Punny Hobkins

We’re playing a campaign where everyone is some sort of fae creature. We have a nymph shadow sorceress, a jaebrin mystic/bard, a sidhe samurai, a redcap barbarian/monk/mystic, a pugwampi artificer and a hobkin illusionist.

We’ve just received rewards for winning a tournament and becoming the champions of the fae realm. The Nymph and pugwampi both have spent considerable time in the Shadowfell in the past, it being the source of the Nymph’s sorcery.

Nymph: We’ve just won the tournament and become champions. I say we take some vacation time! Let’s all go to the Shadowfell!

Redcap: What’s the Shadowfell?

DM: you all know that the Shadowfell is the plane on the other side of the material plane from your home plane. It’s where all the things of evil and death come from.

Sidhe: Yeah, no that sounds awful.

Nymph: It’s rather lovely this time of year.

Hobkin: Wait, (Nymph), where did you want to go?

Nymph: The Shadowfell!

Hobkin: Who tripped it?

Nymph slowly drops her face into her hands while the rest of the table laughs.

Hobkin: Oh I meant that out of character

DM: No, no, because it made (Nymph) do that *points at still facepalming nymph* that was canon.

Deep in the elder forests of flowing green the Wood Nymphs roam, They are mysterious creatures who blend into the scripted bark of swaying trees. The Wood Nymphs run through the forest their footprints molding into the mossy floor.

Wood Nymphs are the attendants of the Faery Queen. In ancient Greece Artemis (Diana) the Goddess of hunt and moon had Wood Nymphs as her companions. ” A nymph is any member of a large class of female nature entities.”

The Wood Nymphs bodies become part of the trees they inhabit, their beauty in they Nature Spirit form is mesmerizing. They are known to be the symbol of good luck, protection, lucid dreaming, and grounding energy.

When you go on a nature walk carry Tree Agate with you to connect with the Wood Nymphs. You can mediate in the forest to connect with the Fea realm.
