Nalu, the Firefly faerie... by thePicSees
Nalu, the Firefly faerie...

We are so excited to show you our new art picture. We made it to introduce you to quite an extraordinary wee faerie that we recently met. Her name is Nalu. She spends most days collecting wee bits of strings, tiny treads and even small snippets of yarn and ribbons, which is not a strange thing for faeriefolk to do, most of us love collecting strings and things...but It's what she does with these that's quite amazing.

You see...She'll keep gathering these until she has just enough (we asked her exactly how much enough is, to which she just smiled and said "enough is not a number, enough is knowing") and then carefully tie each one into a wee little bow. They look similar to shoelaces, but we tried to make one and it's a lot more complicated to do than a lace of a shoe.

Making these can take her anything from a few hours to a few weeks depending on how many bits of string she has...but she always has just enough which means it will take her exactly the right amount of time to do. When the very last one is tied, a full moon should be just about halfway through its climb up into the evening sky, under which she'll sit and wait. She will whistle for the wind and wait some more...her hands like a wee cocoon around the bowties. And then, as the breeze arrives she slowly opens her hands like a flower in bloom, letting them drift off with the wind into the night skies...and one by one, with a wee bit of magic and a whole lot of moonlight they turn into fireflies...

Just one day to go until Halloween by thePicSees
Just one day to go until Halloween

Tomorrow is Halloween and as you probably know that's one of our favourite days of the year! It's the one time when faeryfolk, human beans and monsters all get along. No one runs away screaming, No angry mobs...just some tricks and some treats ~:)

If you go out tomorrow after the sun's gone down you are sure to see every creature and critter imaginable roaming the streets, looking for sweets and having a good old time! Well...actually not every creature and critter...you probably won't see the wee vampires (not to be confused with big vampires like Dracula). They can't come cause they are babysitting bat pups.  You see, this is the time of year that most bats fly off to go find a place to hibernate for the winter. The legend says if a bat is seen flying around after the break of dawn on the day after Halloween they will turn into birds, and if there's one thing a bat does not want to be it's a bird! Now, while most of the wee baby bat pups can fly off with their parents to their winter homes, there's always one or two little late bloomers that can't even flap their wings yet. This would be a very problematic time for these wee pups since all the other bats has to leave...but lucky for them there's the Vampires. For as long as anyone can remember the Vampires has been looking after these wee bat pups during the winter months until their family wakes up around march the next year.  This is why Vampires and bats are such good friends. Many of them were raised by the Vampires so they are actually more like family.

But raising a bat pup is not an easy job. Luckily, the legend that turns bats into birds only last until the new year, but until then none of the wee pups can be taught to fly* and if you know bats you will know they are useless at walking. This means that they have to be carried everywhere they want to go, and they want to go all the time! So the poor vampires doesn't get much sleep (Most people think wee vampires are nocturnal, but they actually love to sleep at night...it's the pups that keeps them up all night.)

 This means if you do happen to see one they're most likely to be very tired and quite grumpy...so it's best to avoid them! Even though they are little they do bite! But don't worry though...it's  not as bad as when a big vampire bites you. It's usually a bit itchy like a mosquito bite. Also you might get a mild case of the wakeys (or sleeplessness) and you probably won't be able to eat garlic for a week but after that you'll be ok. but still....best to avoid them ~:)

*from the very first day of the new year bats can fly again without the fear of becoming a bird so from then they will all go to Lady Rosafae's flying school for her special "midnight flight with batnav" classes (you can read about her school in the post below) so that they can be expert flyers by the time the other bats return.

LADY ROSAFAE'S SCHOOL FOR YOUNG FLYERS. by thePicSees
LADY ROSAFAE'S SCHOOL FOR YOUNG FLYERS.

We recently helped Lady Rosafae to make some posters for her school where she teaches the wee faeries and flutterbugs of the forest to fly. We also promised her that we'll put one of these posters up on our Devaintart page with the all details of her upcoming flying lessons in case anyone here wants to go, and here it is!

There is a beginners course starting this Satyrday. These lessons are tailor made for faerie babies, wee butterflies and little ladybugs (but all little flyers are welcome). There will also be a special night class for baby moths (this will include a half-hour introduction course on avoiding candles and other bright lights). There is no need to pre-book for these courses, just be at the tall oak tree at dawn (or at dusk for the night class).

There's also an intermediate class for little birds next week but we forgot what day that is so we'll do a twitter tweet with the details for that a bit later.

And then last, but most certainly not least...good news for all the non-flyers! We know that quite a few of our friends on here aren't  faeryfolk and some of you might not even have wings...but don't worry! Lady Rosafae is working on a very special class for all of you too! This will be a series of evening classes taking place just after bed time in dreamland, because as you probably know - in dreams everyone can fly ~:D These classes will be open to anyone including human beans!

We'll let you know when and where you can enrol for these very soon. If you want to start practicing in the meantime Lady Rosafae recommends reading some bedtime book that has flyers in them...we think "Peter Pan" should be a perfect start ~:)

PLEASE DON'T FEED THE GOBLINS! by thePicSees
PLEASE DON'T FEED THE GOBLINS!

We got into a bit of trouble so now we have to put up little signs everywhere (including this one here on Deviantart) to remind everyone that they should not be feeding the goblins...not even if it's just one wee little goblin with the most adorable (yet slightly odd looking) grin. Never-ever-ever feed them anything...especially not cookies!

You see...we recently moved to a new country (called the Nether Netherlands) and most of our friends came along on this big adventure of ours. Obviously this also include our very good friend and honorary Picsee; Eric the goblin. Now, on his own Eric can be quite a handful and gets into a lot of trouble with almost no effort...so when he asked us if he could invite one of his wee goblin friends along, we should have known this could only lead to more trouble than usual...But we didn't. 
We said "of course you can! The more the merrier!" But sayings like that should always come with terms and conditions, cause Eric's friend also invited a friend...and so did that friend and that friend's friend invite a few friends too, and so on, and so on, and so forth...which is how we ended up with a few hundred goblins living with us in our new home....But this is not exactly the reason we are in trouble and putting up wee signs everywhere...

We were always friends with the goblins and there's always been hundreds of them around, but back in Scotland they all lived in the woods where they mostly just ate some roots and got up to some minor mischief. But because they now lived in the house with us, and because we were taught sharing is always a good we gave them some of our cookies last night. 
It turns out none of those roots they ate in the forest had any sugar in them...but the cookies certainly did...and suddenly so did all the goblins!

They...went...crazy! absolutely bonkers! they started running about, eating every single sugary snack they could find! And when they couldn't find any more snacks they started eating anything they thought might have some snacks inside. By now they ate so much sugar that they could not taste it anymore so they started eating absolutely everything! In the end there was nothing left except for the walls, an old shoe and a few vegetables. They basically ate the whole house!
And then they went to the neighbours and asked them if they had some cookies...which they did, so the goblins ate all their cookies and then they ate their whole house too! And then they ate the house next door to them, and then the one next to that...and so on, and so on, and so forth...

They kept going until their tummies got so full that they couldn't move anymore. The sugar eventually worn off and they all fell asleep in the streets. We went to get them all and brought them back home, one by one with our wee little wagon. Luckily they had the sugar crazies so bad that they couldn't remember anything when they woke up...including the lovely taste of cookies...and we are certainly not going to tell them or share any of our cookies with them ever again...and neither should you, cause they'll eat your house too! So please, please, please...do not feed the goblins!

PS...you can still leave some cookies out for us at night...we'll be good! we promise ~:)

The Faerie Informer Newspaper!
www.thepicsees.com/news.php

Fb Thefaerieinformer by thePicSees


Today is quite historic and very very exciting, cause today we get to share our wee little newspaper with you! yHay! You are actually very lucky cause no human bean has ever
 seen a newspaper from the faerie realms before...it's true, you will be the first! Up to now all our news was written in faerieglypics which you would not be able to read...actually half the time we can't even read it ourselves!.
But from today, by appointment of her Wee Majesty the Tooth Faery we will have a worldwide website edition of The Faerie Informer newspaper that's specially written in human bean letters...and for good reason too! You see, not too long ago Her Wee Highness didn't believe that Human beans like you existed, actually most faeirefolk thought human beans were a myth. But then we showed her our facebook and deviant art pages

and she was amazed at what she saw...not because she just found out the mythical human beans are real...no, she was amazed at how lovely and kind you all were...all the lovely messages, good wishes and so many smiles. When she saw this she immediately declared you and all our other friends on here to be honorary magical beings....and all magical beings gets to read the Faerie Informer newspaper ~:D
We hope you like it very much, We are still busy translating some of our old news articles into human bean letters and will add them all on there soon...but more importantly we'll be posting all the latest news and pictures and wee stories from the faerie realms on there so you won't ever have to miss a single thing that's happening in our wee world.
  • Mood: Cheerful
  • Playing: later we'll be playing hide and sneak
  • Eating: Cookies
