  1. Latest Version: Download Version 0.745 Walkthrough: (sorry, no walkthrough yet!) Saves from previous versions will not work with version 0.74 due to new scripts that were added. Sorry! I am leaving the following for future versions, as saves should be compatible going forward. Transfer Saved Games: You can copy an old saved game from the game's folder and pop it in the new folder. (Will not transfer some things and some events might respawn). Subscribe to my Patreon to help me commission more art, animations, and lots of other enhancements that will help improve the quality of FSA. I also provide weekly updates at my Patreon on what I'm currently working on. My Patreon Page The Fairy, The Succubus, and The Abyss Seventy years have passed since the War of the Purple Dragon. Peace reigns across the land. The few remaining monsters are content to remain in their dark caves and underground passages. Now, as past threats of evil fade away and become mere legends, dark forces stir in the depths. War is coming. The six kingdoms are not prepared. Features -Play as Sienna, a fairy living in seclusion, as she is captured and thrust into The Abyss, A place so Hellish that none have ever escaped. -Eat, drink, sleep, and bathe as enemies inflict wounds, infections, poison and disease. Struggle to survive in the harshest of environments, including hot and cold zones. -Defeat in the Abyss is not always the end. A large variety of monsters will eagerly rape Sienna if she falls in battle, inflicting trauma, disease, and possibly even pregnancy. -Give birth to ten different varieties of sprites, then nurse and feed them daily so they will age and grow. Equip them for a variety of bonuses. -Monsters die permanently (with few exceptions)! Kill all enemies in an area and solve the Light Lock to make the next time through a much safer experience. -A variety of boss fights that often play more like an action mini-game or puzzle. Don't forget to save first! Just one mistake here and these bosses will kill you. -Choose morality or partake in guilty pleasures. Sienna can be good or bad. The choice is yours. -The nice choice is not always the best choice. NPCs can sometimes die just by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. -At key points in the story you'll make final decisions that will permanently shape Sienna's character, changing her personality or giving her unique (and often useful) traits. Sienna's personality affects her behavior during sex, and later in the game Sienna will automatically make choices based on her personality. -During the story Sienna will give birth to six other fairies, and later on they'll join your party and help you fight. Your fairy children and other allies have personalities and battles of their own. At key points during the story you'll need to backtrack with them to discover hidden locations, events, and even bosses that only they can activate. Screenshots: Screenshot 1 (Warning! Mature Content!)

Some sprites by Evolution. Various artwork by Mavis: www.mydirtydrawings.com If anyone has a problem with my use of any of the art included in FSA then let me know and I'll remove it. The only exceptions being default Rpg Maker assets that I have modified. Unless someone says so then I have no idea which art is actually public domain, free to use, royalty free, etc..
  2. When it comes to matters of faith everyone has their own beliefs and fairies are no different. What does tend to be different for fairies is the way faith is treated. In general the fairy approach to religion can be summarized as 'that which is worshiped or revered gains power'. It is in someways the opposite of the common human approach, which can be sometimes be thought of as 'that which is powerful is worshiped or revered'. Of course it's not that cut an dry on either side, but it works as a good general starting point for the difference between common fairy and common human beliefs. For a fairy, religious devotion isn't thought of as much as about 'belief' as it is about 'choice'. To choose to hold something sacred or holy is to invest power into that thing, the more of one's own energy one chooses to devote to something the more power it gains in their eyes. The more power and renown something has, the more it can do and therefor the more useful it is to worship, but this is often a secondary concern and many fairies believe that worship for purely pragmatic reasons is less potent then devoting one's self to something just because they genuinely want to. Fairies do often hold that such purely pragmatic belief is done in 'bad faith'. Fairies tend to also similarly look down on the idea of religion being some sort of 'duty' or 'obligation'. To most fairies any religious belief that demands worship or devotion is at best poisonous to the ones who follow it and at worse poisonous to everything around them as well. They also tend to be opposed to organized religious institutions (of significant scale at least) and especially opposed to anything they even suspect to be any kind of religious indoctrination by one. In fact fairies tend to shy away from the idea of having any kind of fixed 'canon' of teachings or beliefs, and instead prefer syncretically following whatever they feel fit. Most religious practices are often thought best carried out in private, and mass public displays of worship are often seen as disruptive or suspicious. This doesn't mean religious gatherings or places of worship don't exist, just that fairies rarely are that overt about prayer or other such rituals and preaching is usually kept to a minimum. Fairies tend to find most common human religions and religious practices to be repugnant, dangerous, or at least very very silly (especially Christianity, on witch there are also many historical reasons to bare a grudge), although most will grudgingly accept a person's choice in following one if they show 'true faith' as a fairy recognizes it. While fairies do often worship many gods and other spirits (as personalized representatives of abstract concepts and as beings in their own right), they aren't necessarily thought of in the general sense as much more then a human might think of famous celebrities. In other words, often awe inspiring and worthy of respect for their power and fame, but not beings beyond understanding or reproach. To a fairy, gods and other spirits are just like any other being, at least in that regard. A fairy might just as well worship another fairy they are a fan of, or even a human in rare cases, living or dead. A fairy wouldn't necessarily see much difference between a fan convention and a temple, a cosplayer or a priest. What matters to a fairy is the devotion and energy put into something, not the exact form that devotion takes. That doesn't mean that that's all fairies worship however. To fairies anything and everything can be a target of worship, from directly worshiping abstract concepts to revering inanimate objects and everything in between. The wonders of nature are a common choice. Fairies often make little shrines of a sort out of things like a refreshing spring or well, a waterfall, a neat cave, a particularly large tree or pleasant grove, a small hill, anywhere that seems like a nice meeting place. Sometimes fairies may put up some altars made from a pile of stones or standing stones marked with runes. There might be entryways marked by Stonehenge-like gates. Sometimes it's just decoration, but sometimes it means a fairy felt the need to protect a place with magic and a barrier will keep out any who don't go through the gate. Sometimes these gates act as portals to other places. Well loved objects are thought to be in some sense holy as well. Objects with sentimental value are prized and said to hold lots of power. Indeed, magically a well loved object can be very powerful, and can hold many blessings or sometimes powerful curses. An object's history and it's connection to the history of others is very important to many fairies. Though they don't truly exist in the fairy world, museums are also places a fairy might think of like a temple of a sort. One not only holding precious objects for display, but also in charge of understanding and explaining their history. Many fairies tend to be hoarders of artifacts that they personally find important, even if no one else does. It is even not that uncommon for fairies to, rather then revering or worshiping any particular thing, devote one's self to a concept or ideal. To a fairy someone who devote themselves to something like 'justice', 'love', 'science', 'power', or 'pleasure' are simply putting their faith into something like any other personal belief. And of course, many fairies choose to put their faith in only in themselves or sometimes in nothing at all. Ritual can also be very important to fairies, both magically and spiritually (in fact magic and spirituality are often seen as deeply connected, but not always truly synonymous). Fairy rituals are often personalized or are part of a large collection of haphazard folk beliefs and practices. The form rituals take often doesn't matter as much as the function they serve and the feeling behind them, and fairies mostly encourage experimentation and improvisation over strict traditionalism or sticking to any one set of rules too strictly. This often extends to 'social rituals' such as manners or protocol, especially for solitary fairies (to a point anyway, there are still basic guidelines to follow if one doesn't want to be seen as rude). The exceptions where traditionalism and/or following a set of strict rules is expected are mostly for those within the Seelie courts and occasionally when fairies need to have a formal meeting, trial, or duel. Since fairies are practically immortal they don't tend to care much about the idea of an afterlife. Many fairies find the idea silly or disdainful, but often acknowledge it's possibility. Most fairies who care to think about such things might say that things can create echos that might linger long after they are gone and leave it at that. Fairies also don't tend to care all that much about the origin or meaning of existence as a whole. There are speculations about it and a few scattered legends, but many fairies would say that how things came to be doesn't really matter, and what things mean is up to every person to decide. If fairies have any generally agreed upon explanation about existence as a whole, it's that existence is about, if anything, existing. That everyone and everything that exists, real or unreal, is fulfilling whatever role it may have for it's own sake and not for the sake of some higher purpose or god. Often fairies believe that happiness is truly found in loving one's own existence for it's own sake. Loving one's own existence doesn't necessarily mean only loving one's self, but also can include the world around them and everything in it. It also doesn't necessarily mean one can never be unsatisfied or upset, just that maybe one shouldn't let negative feelings ruin their passion for existing. And it certainly doesn't necessarily mean one shouldn't ever strive to change themselves or the world around them, just that maybe they should remember and appreciate where they are and what they are doing. Of course most fairies wouldn't say that in so many words, but it's really kind of important to us. After all, when a fairy doesn't care about existing anymore they die for good. So in the end, to a fairy wonder and passion can be found in all things great and small. All you have to do is look!
  3. Generally speaking fairies have very different ideas about some things then humans do, mostly because fairies have very different and often incompatible sets of ideals for how people are supposed to act compared to normal human ones. Humans that become fairies are mostly either already preconditioned to reject normal human ideals anyway, end up slowly accepting fairy ideals, or end up isolating themselves from other fairies. One of the big differences relates to sexuality and gender. Most fairies do not really have a strong interest in ideas about gender, both in sense of identity or orientation. Of those that do identify as a particular gender, most think of themselves as female. Their is a real advantage to fairies in the female form because of the utility of being able to lay their own eggs, and so many fairies stay in a female-ish state most of the time. Fairies that prefer a male-ish state are not exceptionally rare, but still not as common. Many even prefer a state that mixes genders. To a fairy, a person is a person, for the most part. Sure, a number of fairies are more or less attracted to, or more or less inclined to identify as, a particular gender, but most don't end up thinking in quite that way. Because many fairies can alter their bodies and become whatever they feel like at any given moment, gender is more a kind of fashion. That is to say, a fairy will often treat gender as a human treats the type of clothing someone wares, as a sort of statement about who a person is sure, but not a defining part of it. Another big thing that is different is the fairy idea of romance. Romance is for fairies purely defined by how much someone in a relationship actually feels something special for another. Anything could be romantic, and it tends to be that to a fairy almost all of their interpersonal relationships are thought of as in some way romantic. Other times fairies can attach very little importance to any interpersonal relationships at all. The most basic relationship that is often thought by fairies as romantic is friendship. Fairies don't always have tons of very close friends, but many of them can be very friendly. Fairies are naturally polyamorous and there is not often a lot of distinction between 'friend' and 'lover'. Even casual friends can often do things that to humans may seem shocking, such as going out as a couple, kissing, and engaging in sexual activity. Even so, many fairy friendships do not and lots of fairies do only do that kind of thing as part of a deeper relationship, either deep and lasting friendships or something a little bit more. Fairies value honestly and mutual openness about each other's romantic expectations when it comes to friendship. Being dishonest or hiding activities with others tends to strain or break friendships. Sometimes fairies can take friendships very seriously and when friendships break it can get messy. Other times fairies don't take it nearly as bad and will simply move on without much fuss. It's not always easy to see how a fairy will react to such a break up. Beyond friendship, fairies do have a loose sense of 'family' as such. Since fairies do not have normal offspring, they don't tend to have the same concept of 'family' as humans do. Often fairies will have those that they refer to in similar ways, such as thinking of another as a sibling, child, or parent. Sometimes this is just a way to show deep friendship or respect, but it can go far beyond that. Often fairies who want to be bonded as 'family' will preform particular magical rituals. These rituals can be involved, are often sexual, and tend to alter the fairies who participate in subtle ways to become more alike. A 'family' formed this way is often called a 'brood'. Fairies of course have no incest taboo whatsoever, and in fact being bonded in this way is often motivated by becoming closer both in body and soul with another. A brood could have many members, but usually it is most stable for around three to five members to live together per steading. It's possible to undergo another ritual to become part of a new brood, but most fairies tend to think becoming part of one overwrites any others. Without such a ritual, it's still possible for fairies to form what is often called a 'kinship'. Kinships are much more informal and such relationships can be formed and broken on the fly. A kind of mutual adoptive sibling kinship can sometimes be thought of almost as a kind of marriage (which outside of the higher social levels of the Seelie court is not a tradition fairies often practice), and the adoption of a child by a parent can have it's own social implications. Often fairies, especially the Unseelie court, will also play games of domination and submission and a common relationship is that of the master/mistress and their playthings. This is an especially attractive option for those fairies who are too jealous and controlling or otherwise selfish to deal well with other kind of relationships. In such a relationship, the plaything is totally at the mercy of the master/mistress and will have to obey or else just be used to sate any desire the master/mistress has. Despite this, it is still often very romantic and a good number of them are mutually loving and caring relationships. They are also not always sexual. The Unseelie court engange in this as part of their game too. An Unseelie may capture another to make into a plaything, but failing to make an Unseelie your plaything usually means the fairy ends up one themselves and the Unseelie gains all the playthings that fairy had collected. Seelie on the other hand only allow this sort of thing with permission and attempting to force a solitary fairy is likely to get the offender banished. Sometimes though selfish fairies will attempt to capture humans who are sometimes seen as fair game. But I would never to do that to you! Honest! Aren't you glad you learned about fairy culture?
  4. Like humans, fairies have their own racial and factional issues, and like humans it can be important to keep these divisions in mind when interacting with them. First thing to note is that the word 'fairy' can refer both to the whole class of being to which we belong and to our particular racial group. In general many beings may possibly identify as a type of fairy, such as gnomes, brownies, leprechauns, even pixies (much to many fairies' annoyance). I am going to use fairy here to refer to my particular racial group. Alternatively I could use the word 'fae', but that's usually reserved for a particular class in my racial group. Speaking of pixies, one big thing to avoid is to make sure to never refer to a fairy as a pixie. Fairies and pixies are two related but different racial groups, and they don't always get along. A good analogy can be found in humans as the difference between the English and the Irish. This is probably the number one most important rule. It's often the most surefire way to really get yourself in some very hot water, even with fairies that are otherwise very friendly with pixies. Therefor it's important to be able to tell the difference, but this can be tricky because even if they don't always get along, there is enough interbreeding and some cultural crossover to make it hard to tell. In general, pixies tend to be smaller, look more childish, often don't have wings, and often have pointed ears, while fairies tend to be bigger, look more adult, usually have wings, and often have rounded ears. But you can't always tell the difference just by looking. Especially since a good number of both are shapeshifters. Culturally, we both can probably trace our roots mainly to elves and aos sí. Fairies tend to be closer to elves and pixies tend to be closer to aos sí. While fairies make homes in trees and such, pixies are more at home under or near the ground. Pixies often practice a slightly different kind of magic which usually is more earthy while fairy magic is more airy, though humans without magic sense might not be able to tell. Maybe these races intermingled to form the predecessors of fairies and pixies, and maybe not. Since we are practically immortal and don't have children in the normal way, it's not like we can really trace our genealogy. Plus any fairy still old to remember isn't likely going to tell anyone. As for being called something else, not many people are going to mistake a fairy for a gnome, brownie, or leprechaun. Most likely reaction you will get if you call a fairy one of them is to be thought of as an uninformed idiot. Of course being thought of as an uninformed idiot often means some fairies will feel they can toy with you however they want, but every smart fairy also knows that seemingly uninformed idiots are people you have to keep a very very close eye on. Also, a fairy who is called an elf, aos sí, angel, or demon will probably think it's amusing and try and trick you into thinking they are one, maybe even shapeshifting to match. Beyond that, fairies are divided into different factions. First of all there is the division between solitary fairies and trooping fairies. Solitary fairies (like me) tend to be very anarchistic and live in small groups or on our own. We are totally awesome and have fun all day, and are so much better then the stuck up trooping fairies. Okay maybe I am a biiiit bias. Trooping fairies on the other hand really dig their games of politics and prestige and form grand stuffy governmental courts that build and live together in cities, hold government, and make war on one another as part of their silly games. Of course being immortal, they never really are at risk of dying like humans do (morals that join often become fairies themselves if they die), and any of them can just decide to leave and become a solitary fairy if they get board of it. There are some advantages to joining the courts though, namely they often provide a bit more training and education, they often have a much more developed economy and so have a variety of interesting goods and services for sale, plus many just find the game thrilling. Both courts are ruled by a king and/or queen, though who the rulers are frequently change as well as the exact political system depending on the whims of the rulers or their supporters. Trooping fairies are the ones, particularly the high ranking ones, that usually are referred to as 'fae' rather then 'fairy'. This is a consequence of the fact that their courts are the main reason the word 'fairy' often refers to a whole bunch of different races, because technically the courts can include almost any kind of being, occasionally they will even invite humans to join in their games. Those that join are thought of as 'honorary fairies' and sooner or later various races that commonly join the courts began thinking of themselves as such regardless of if they personally joined. The two most prominent and successful of these courts are the Seelie and Unseelie. In general, the Seelie court play the 'good guys' and are all about being pretty and keeping up appearances. Their political game is usually about face, looking good in public, upholding honor, those sorts of things. It's not that they aren't all scheming and looking for ways to get one up on each other, they just want to make sure they don't get caught. It strikes me as a very human game to play, and I don't for the life of me understand the appeal, but to each their own! The Unseelie on the other hand mostly play the 'bad guy' and are all about showing off power and skill. Might makes right and the ones that have the most useful skills thrive. Those that don't have the raw power to succeed better have skills that make themselves invaluable or they won't get very far in this game. They don't put most stock in appearances or pretty speeches, but they still need some kind of politics and leadership or else they focus so much on fighting each other to oppose the Seelie. As for myself, I just don't have that kind of competitive spirit. I rather laze around and enjoy myself. Other courts come and go as well, but they never really get the attention or success of the Seelie and Unseelie and often end up collapsing form lack of interest or joining one or the other. The vast majority of fairies though are solitary fairies like me who just don't care about the game. Though we are anarchistic, that doesn't mean that we never interact with each other or don't have our disputes, but for the most part we can kind of take care of ourselves (magic can provide for a lot), don't really need to worry about dying anyway (if we are that bored of living we can close to, but that rarely happens), and have plenty of space (due to fairyland being a extra dimensional self-expanding bubble of sorts). When disputes get big enough they can't be solved through the parties involved settling their differences on their own, they are often settled though informal civil justice systems. One example is the tattle system. Solitary fairies tend to live in small communities or singularly populated areas called 'steadings'. Because lot of them will know each other quite well (when they don't ignore each other completely), there will often be particularly well connected fairies called 'tattles'. A tattle will seek support from the people who live in nearby steadings to become part of their 'throng'. Fairies can chose what tattle they support at any time. During a dispute the tattle(s) chosen by the parties involved will attempt to provide an impartial trial, usually by selecting judges (or often acting as one themselves) and a jury from their throng(s). Throngs also are tasked with enforcing the decisions made by their tattle and can act like police when needed. In general if there are bigger decisions to be made, all the tattles involved in the area will get together and decide the best course of action. This type of decision is usually done by consensus, or at least 75%-80% majority. In a rare emergency they may collectively decide to just go with the majority in the sake of getting things done, but that isn't really that common. Tattles also tend to organize group projects and events, such as public works projects or holiday celebrations and other festivals. These are done on a strictly volunteer basis of course, with any needed materials and/or funding (if you can call it that, most solitary fairies use stored magic power for money) being pulled strictly from donations. If that doesn't work, there is always the option of going to a trooping fairy court, but a lot of us despise the idea, and the courts don't like to get involved in solitary fairy matters aside from the occasional attempt at recruitment. For the record, the Seelie usually settles disputes with law and legal fanangling the way most humans do, with lawyer speak and pandering nonsense so that it ends up being more about what argument sounds better then anything else. And the Unseelie? Well they just let each party find a champion that supports them, make sure they have a fair fight, and let them go at it. Simple and efficient sure, but most of the really strong champions are picky about who they choose so you better appeal to their sensibilities (yeah right), convince them you are useful, or find a way to pay them. And there! I hope I could educate you once again, and show how much better us solitary fairies are then those silly trooping fairies!
  5. Because I randomly started writing it, here is something about fairy holidays I wrote up: Fairies very rarely work or have that much real religious reverence (many fairies are religious in some sense, but tend to treat it more like informal fanclub then organized institutions, in fact many fairies would count human fandoms as a type of religion), but none the less often enjoy having the excuse to party or indulge more then normal. There are eight major holidays and many more minor ones. The eight major ones include the two solstices, the two equinoxes, and four seasonal transitions. It also should be noted that lots of fairies don't always agree on what to celebrate on these days or what they should be called, but most of them generally feel there should be some kind of special event on these days. There are some genuinely accepted versions of the eight holidays. The first and most important is the winter solstice, which starts the 12-ish day festival known as Yuletide. This festival also marks the end of the year and the start of a new one. Often it is celebrated in ways that are similar but distinct from the human celebration of Christmas which is it's Christianized counterpart. In particular decorating trees, giving gifts, singing, burning a yule log, and eating feasts of ham are all traditional Yuletide traditions. The day of the solstice is often called Yule and can be a time where friends gather to share a meal and give gifts. The night before often starts the celebration with The Festival of Stars where fairies will often stay up and stargaze with friends. Near the end, on what is our new year's eve, there is what we call The Festival of Lights where we use magic and fireworks to put on a show. It's also the time of year when the Wild Hunt takes place, a tradition started by Odin in the form of the Yule Father who is kind of our version of Santa Claus. During the hunt we traditionally hunt and kill a wild boar for our feasts, though the hunters don't always hunt boars or kill their prey. After the hunt comes the Yuletide feasts which can continue into next morning. There are often lots of fun activities that change from year to year, but those are the big ones. Our next major holiday is Cleansing Day which is the traditional first day of spring midway between the winter solstice and spring equinox. It is similar in ways to Imbolc. It is celebrated manly by doing some spring cleaning, bathing in special springs, and lighting candles in the evening. It is often a day for coming together to overcome old grudges and has also acquired some traditions similar to Valentine's Day as a day for lovers to get together and spiritually cleanse themselves with each other's love. Though since fairies are not exclusively monogamist or always have a clearly defined separation between 'friend' and 'lover' this is can be a bit chaotic. After that, on the spring equinox we celebrate Laying Day. It is often celebrated with traditions that vaguely resemble some of the more non-Christian elements of Easter, namely the symbology of rabbits and a tradition of hiding eggs. Though rather then a rabbit hiding chicken eggs, fairies lay and hide their own eggs. Since they are immortal fairies cannot have children, but their eggs still serve an important function. When a fairy is 'killed' their spirit returns to an egg which hatches into a new body. Though there are large public stashes of eggs, many fairies like to keep their own secret stashes close by so they don't have to travel as far. Laying Day is a great way to get fairies to remember to check on their stashes and to gather egg collections for the public ones. Plus it's lots of fun! In order to lay lots of eggs we have to... well I am sure you know why rabbits are such a great symbol. Next is May Day, celebrated on what is traditionally the first day of summer between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, which is one of the few holidays that humans and fairies both celebrate in a lot of the same ways. A lot of the dancing around the maypoll, the Morris Dance, the choosing of a May Queen. A May Queen of the celebration is often traditionally a human who has been chosen to become a fairy. Because fairies cannot have children normally we often adopt humans we like and turn them into fairies. The gender of the human doesn't matter, most May Queens end up as female fairies anyway. The Morris Dance is a very important tradition to welcome the summer. Next we have Midsummer on the summer solstice. On this day we often light bonfires and just kinda have a fun festival. It's kinda much more of a loose thing, with lots of different food, games, music, and dancing that mixes lots of different traditions and styles. It's not that different from a lot of the summer festivals humans throw to be honest. One interesting thing is that while fairies tend to hate crowds and on other holidays we all tend to celebrate in smaller groups (even the Wind Hunt tends to be done with smallish hunting groups outside of one or two big ones), this day is the most likely that lots and lots of fairies will try and meet up in massive fairs with big crowds. Next is Lammas, the traditional first day of fall and midway between the summer solstice and the fall Equinox. Often called or associated with Lughnasadh. It is celebrated most often with feasts primarily of bread and honey served with berries and fruits. It marks the start of the 'harvest season'. Fairies are not agricultural in the traditional sense in that they create and grow most of their food with magic, or by hunting and gathering in their magically rich world. Even so we still do venerate the cycles of nature and the harvest. Next is Harvestfest which is celebrated on the fall equinox. We often celebrate with a big feast of some kind. American-style turkey dinners have actually become a popular choice since fairies started paying attention to human culture. It is also partly related to various Thanksgiving traditions though it descending from older harvest festivals, but in general fairies do not show public displays of gratitude unless they need to. Private shows of thankfulness to the earth or others isn't uncommon on this day though. It's the one day out of the year that some fairies show their gratitude. Last of the eight but not least is Samhain which is celebrated on the traditional first day of winter midway between the fall equinox and the winter solstice. Known to by it's Christian name as Halloween, this is the day where the gap between worlds is smallest, and fairies often come to the human world to play pranks or trick-or-treat in for candy. Often both. It's a time when many creatures from lots of different worlds can meet up and play in the human world. We can all go out in public and the silly humans don't suspect a thing! It's also the time to preform what is know as the Dark Morris to welcome the winter. It is preformed like the Morris Dance on May Day only in secret and in silence, without spectators or music. There are other minor holidays that are often observed. One is Trickster's Day. It is often equated to what humans call April Fools, and it also honors the great tricksters of lore (such as Loki, Eris, The Coyote, Kitsune, Tanuki, even Bugs Bunny). Another is Witch's Night which is often celebrated on the eve before May Day. It is a night in remembrance and appreciation for human magic users who used to be so friendly with fairies and other supernatural beings, and a night of showing off magical skill. Trying to list them all might be impossible. Fairies tend to celebrate anything they feel is worth celebrating anyway, and can just make up holidays on the spot sometimes too. They love holidays like International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Having some sort of special day is always fun, but a lot of them can become popular and then fade and vanish pretty quickly. So there you go! I hope that educated you about fairy culture!
