Another Fairy List
Anonymous said: Could you do some prompts about a human who is the representative of all the other humans and frequently visits the fairy courts to negotiate stuff on their behalf?
Anonymous said: Dude there’s no way that the marriage between the strongest fairy in the world and some little human went over well with all the fey. Could I get some assassination or kidnapping attempts or just general backlash from some of the fey and the humans lovers reaction to this?

Anonymous said: Sorry if this prompt is repetitive, but could you do some more prompts on fairies unintentionally hurting their lovers/showing each other differences between their worlds? (Honestly that ice rink one was so cute)
1) The fey wine and dined their business partners like nothing else. They are not creatures capable of lying, but their parties can leave any mortal heady. Susceptible to making promises in pleasure and pridefulness that they’ll still be held accountable to when the night ends.
For the first time, they had absolutely no memory of what had happened the night before.
2) “Don’t let them steal you again,” his lover said. “Honestly, you are far too charming. They’ll never give you back to me. Promise.”
He started to laugh, only to realise that his fairy was being serious.
“Vicious fucking magpies,” his boyfriend muttered. “Can’t keep their claws off anything beautiful.” The fairy planted kisses to every inch of skin they could reach. More fey then they normally appeared in the human world, all sharp edges and the supernova eyes of the summer prince.
“Hey - hey -” He caught his boyfriend’s chin so he could lock their gazes. “I promise, yeah?”
3) “Why are two most powerful fey of the winter and summer court fighting over you?”
The human blinked. “Nobody’s fighting anything. We’re very happy together.”
4) “Your family doesn’t like me,” the human said. They stared at his knees, feeling utterly grubby among the splendor of the immortal courts. Utterly inadequate.
Their fey lover’s head cocked. “Of course they don’t, you’re an insignificant human of no power or social standing. You’re nothing.”
A lump thickened in the human’s throat and their hands began to shake.
Their lover’s eyes widened. “Oh - no - no - you’re upset. I didn’t mean to upset you.”
“You didn’t mean to upset me telling me I’m nothing?”
The fairy swallowed and moved over. “I like you, if that counts for anything. I like you a lot. I’m sorry I upset you. I - this place - they just don’t understand. You’re everything. To me, you’re everything. That’s not what I meant.”
5) I had been coming for years, I played the game as masterfully as anyone of them. It was the dream job, until I was fired. Those who enter the fairy courts tend towards the youthful, the beautiful. Fey do not age like humans do after all. It was the night of an important negotiation, planned months in advance, and I wasn’t there. And, suddenly, for the first time, the fairies were there instead. In the human world. Eyes ablaze with a rage that I had long since grown unused to, shining too bright and deadly. I shot to my feet.
“It appears there has been a misunderstanding. Get dressed.”
6) “If it makes you feel better, they wouldn’t be trying to kill you if they didn’t view you as a threat.” Their lover sounded gleeful.
“No! That doesn’t make me feel better!”
7) Every night, they came apart. Every morning, they were put together. Winter, to Spring. Summer to Autumn.
8) “Are you coming or-” They turned, to find their fairy entranced again. Jumping up and down in autumn leaves, a flurry of gold and scarlet. It was, perhaps, the most endearing thing they had ever seen in their entire life.
The fey beamed, scooping leaves and tossing them in the air. In the fey’s hand they turned as green as summer, only to shrivel back to Autumn in the air.
“We do not have this,” the fairy whispered. “This is amazing.”
Nothing changed in an endless summer.
