Overview

From Shakespeare’s Queen of the Fairies to the Flower Fairies and the Christmas Fairy, the magical creatures have enchanted centuries of people. This book explores what makes fairies, elves and imps so special. These winged creatures have given their names to many words and phrases as one of the chapters reveals and we’ve been entranced by fairies since fairy tales introduced us to Fairy Godmothers. The main part of the book is an A-Z featuring thousands of fairies and their male counterparts. Each short biography will have a symbol to show where they found their fame, whether in books, films, cartoons or, like Fairy Liquid, brands and advertising.

    On the Run Chapter 5

    I grinned. "Yeah. You got me." He rubbed his nose. "Good job guys." Kathy hurumphed. She stalked rowards the exit. "Guess we better follow her." I suggested. Jamie shrugged but followed her. I waked after them. As we walked out of the arena, another kid who looked eighteenishwalked in. "Hi Carter." I said as he walked by us. "Hey." He brushed his black hair out of his eyes and fixed his green eyes on us. "Who are your friends?" "This is Kathy and that's Jamie. Guys, this is my half brother, Carter, Son of Athena." "Hey." They said, simutaneously once again. Thy glared at him but Jamie ignored it. (I think they have a love hate thing going on.) "Nice to .eet ya." He said before waling away. I wqtched him as he walked away. Carter had always unwrved me though I didn't know why. I was joted out of my revelry when Kathy shouted at me. "Emily!" "What!" "It's nuffin." She said. "Just wonderin if you were still with us, you were staringat the wall so long." I shoved her before takijg off down the hallway. She groed before taking off after me. I nimbly dodged around people and taking abrupt turns. Kthy though(being a followrr of Bast and almos part cat) kept right on my heels. One time she almost grabbed my black hair tht was flying behind. I grunted and ran faster. I then turned a cornor and ran right into somone. I stumbled back slightly dizzy before shaking my head to clear the dizziness. "Well hello again." I heard a familiar voice say."Hello Baxter." I replied. "We gotta stop running into each other like that." I nodded my head. "How do you like it here so far?" I queried. "It's rely nice. I can't beleive thatpolicemen haven't found there way here yet." "It's the magic." "Eh. Hem." I had comepletly forgotten about Kathy. "Emily and I have something to do." She grbed my hand and dragged me away. Baxter gave a sml ve before dissapearing into a room. <p> That's all for now! Thank you Eclipse for the character. I hope you guys enjoye it. Appehs needed. Thks!~Shadow

    Devon's Harry Styles Imagine Part Five ♥ A

    "De-Devon!" Alicia cries as she walks into my room. It's been a month after the date. "What happened?" I gasp. Alicia sits next to me on my bed. "M-my dad d-died." Alicia stutters. I sit there for a second then hug her. "DEMI!" I yell. Demi Lovato, still my cousin, walks in and sees Alicia crying. "What happened to her?" Demi looks concerned. "Her dad.. he's gone." I say. Demi's eyes widen. "Does she want the boys over?" Demi asks. I feel Alicia nod on my shoulder and I nod. Demi leaves to text the boys. I look at Alicia and she's wearing sweats and a baggy shirt. I laugh a little. "Let's get you into real clothes." I smile as I lift up Alicia's head an she nods. *LATER* "Alicia! I'm so sorry." Luke says as he sees Alicia. Luke hugs her and, after hesitating for one second, kisses her. Harry sneaks up behund me and wraps his arms around my waist. "Hey, babe." Harry whispers into my ear. "Hey." I whisper back. "I'm sorry about what happened to Alicia." Harry says. "Don't... Just don't talk about it." I choke out. Alicia's dad was like my second dad. This hurts me just like it hurts her. I hear my phone go off. I take it out. It's from Taylor Swift, Alicia's cousin. "Who is it?" Harry asks. "It's Taylor Swift. She's outside. But we can't tell Alicia." I smile. "Why is Taylor here?" Harry grumbles. "She's Alicia's cousin. Alicia and Tay are, like, best friends." I respond. Taylor will be fine that I'm with Harry, right? "Oh." Harry breathes out. "Alicia. I have a suprise for you out front." I tell Alicia. She gives me a confused look and looks out front then screams. Alicia opens the door. "Taylor! You're here! Oh my god, I've missed you so much!" Alicia hugs Taylor and Taylor hugs back. "I've missed you to." Taylor laughs and then she sees mine and Harry's interlocked fingers. Taylor gives me a look that asks 'are you dating him' and I nod and she smiles at me. Happily, may I add. "I'm dating Luke Hemmings." Alicia blurts randomly. Luke walks toward Alicia and lazily wraps and arm around her waist. "Oh my god!" Taylor smiles.**************** Wassup? Hope you like! &#9829 A
