If I seem to be mixing up fairies and faeries, it is strictly unintentional.

I'm not making any distinction, but have since learned that there is a difference.

For now, if you see either usage, I'm trying to describe the same thing...a creature of the fey realm.

:crazy:
:o

I didn't realize there was a difference; I thought it was a spelling thing, such as Color or Colour. Do *tell, what is the difference?
*yup... I could Google it. :mrgreen:
The differences vary by source. Unless you are going by established D&Disms. In which case, Faerie is a type of elf (grey, gray, or meadow) and a fairy is usually a little winged thingy (like a sprite or pixie or a generic fey).

In real life folklore, it is way more messy and spelling is irrelevant.

In my limited knowledge...fairies = nice, faeries = evil and mischievous

Four Fungos to the Otis? Isn’t that the name of a Beastie Boys jam?

You've got to be kitten me. With your history, John? That's pawsitively offensive. You have made so many unfurtunate, clawful puns, you should go down in hisstory as one of the worst pun offenders ever! Heck, we've threatened to call claw-enforcement on you, to put you in the punitentiary.

Stop feline so bad, John. I'm just pulling your tail a bit. No need to be a sourpuss.
