The Fairy God: Prologue
Once upon a time, in the deep recesses of the past there was a young individual who was wrought with pain. Their heart was broken, the spirit shattered, and their faith in humanity lost. That person cast themselves into the desert and shouted to the sky. The sky expected to be cursed, to be chastised, and blamed for that person’s situation. So many before them had done that. But that individual did none of those things. They simply cried to the sky and asked why? “Why? Why do I feel such pain!?” The individual shouted, tears running down their face. “I only wanted to help the others, but even that I could not do. My attempt cost me what little life I have left. So please, tell me why? How could I have done better?”
The sky looked down on this person in sorrow. The sky knew the individual since birth. All of their strengths and weaknesses, accomplishments and limitations, all were known by the sky. Moved by compassion the sky descended to the ground and greeted the individual. “Person who speaks of such sorrow. You could have done nothing more. Your actions were of your greatest caliber, this dream you seek to achieve is simply beyond your limit.” Stunned to see the embodiment of the sky appear, the individual asked, “But why? Why could I not be stronger? Be better? Be another?” The sky contemplated this, not knowing what to say. But the sky could sense the individuals resolve. The sky as many know, is a fickle being that can become clear as day or storm to no end. It’s compassion turned to curiosity. This spark of desire led to an opportunity for the individual. The sky called down a bolt of lightning that struck the individual.
They cried out in pain, but realized they felt no agony. The ground around the individual began to grow luscious trees. The sky began to rise above the person saying, “I have granted you the ability to change your very being individual! Your limitations, weaknesses, and problems shall be no more. You now CHOOSE who you become.” The individual beamed with glee. “This is joyous news Sky! I could assist the world for all time with this newfound power!” The sky shook its head slowly getting out of sight. “You are still a mortal. One day your body will fail and your time will end. This I cannot change. But should you decided you no longer require the ability to constantly change, you can pass on this gift to another. And they shall have the same opportunity should they choose. Your power shall guide you now. I leave you to your new life.”
The person could see the sky almost leave sight as they cried out once more. “Sky! I have become anew. My form, my mind, my very being may change! Please tell me what I am now, for I do not feel like myself.” The sky smirked. “You have the ability of the Fae, to perform feats of magic, assist or destroy your fellows, and finally be free of your restricting ideals. You are the Fairy God and you shall create parents that will foster the growth of the world’s children. Do well.”
The sky had settled above leaving the individual with his new power. His small spindly body began to grow. What was once burnt and bruised skin began go grow tougher, darker, and stronger. The unruly hair that was around his face blew to the breeze leaving his feature clean and sharp. His height grew and grew leaving only his bottomwear standing. He gestured to the barren area around him as flora began go grow in all directions. He would remake this place into something much better and shepherd the people of the world to a better future. Only time would tell.
