Fairies never actually die, but come back with the next lunar cycle. Fairies, outlawed centuries ago, often disguise themselves as people. If you pay close attention to attributes such as mischievousness and the showing of pure joy, you can sometimes tell who they are, especially with the long and lithe of limb, but they do come in all shapes, sizes and types. If you have a bit of their dust in your veins, you can see them, like a shadow or a bit of dust floating in the light. If they are smushed, (they tend to be carefree and reckless), they leave a dark silhouette for a moment before they disappear. This is how they came to be seen here. By the time you see them captured here, they will be back to their old pranks and 'random acts of kindness'; that bumper sticker was made by a fairy and throws off just a bit of fairy dust every time you see it. Look for it. Make some of your own. If you do enough, you may get your own wings back, even though you may never know you have them.
