I just wanted to give a little information on faeries that were of interest to me. Please Pick up that book I told you about in the beginning "A Witch's Guide to Faery Folk" by Edain McCoy. This is where I got my information from, and there is SO much more. Did you know there is 230 diferent Faeries? This book has a Dictionary of each one! Also, there is Faery Magick, Where you can find them, and so much more. If you believe in Faeries like I do, You would love to read about them, and maybe even find some Faeries.
