Because I kinda like a lot of the stuff in the human world and need some sort of disguise so human's don't freak out, plus an identity and money so I can buy stuff. Most of the time I do stay at home and stay a fairy. Besides, I don't hate humans. Humans can be pretty cool even! I just think they are silly a lot of the time. Sometimes silly in interesting ways, but often in infuriatingly clueless or backwards ways that make no sense. And the weird thing is, even they seem to know it! I really am trying to help them you know. Though I often think half the reason they are the way they are is because they are plagued by death and lack of resources and I imagine in a century or two, if things go well, humans will probably come around to our way of thinking anyway. Let's hope!
You know, hundreds of years ago I probably wouldn't have needed a disguise. Humans respected us fairies back then, and we were making progress teaching them our ways and encouraging them to be better... Then Christians ruined everything. Darn Christians. Stealing our holidays, demonizing us, driving us away. I swear, the church is another conspiracy by Greyface to suck the fun out of everything. Though Jesus himself seems like a pretty cool guy. Hey, speaking of stolen holidays, May Day is coming up! Woohoo! That's actually one of the rare ones people still celebrate properly! (Halloween comes pretty close to Samhain, Christmas is still kinda similar enough to Yule but most people don't know much about Yule besides the name, Easter still has eggs and bunnies left over from the fertility holiday it was and that's about it, most of the others are obscure or forgotten.)
