It's Follow Friday!!
Thanks for stopping by!
Today's Follow Friday question is:
Q. In light of the Summer Solstice. Also known as Midsummer...let's talk about fairies. What is your favorite fairy tale or story that revolves around the fae?
This is a tough one for me. First, I'd have to go with the classic: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's tale which gave me my first real knowledge about fairies outside of Tinkerbell. My favorite fairy story, which is really not about the fae, but more like a fairy tale is Stardust by Neil Gaiman. Young Tristan ventures away from the safety of his hometown, Wall, and into the land of Faerie. He encounters some pretty incredible things, witches, flying boats that catch lightning and a fallen star, but no fae. It is, however, my favorite Faerie tale.
