Fables and Faery Tales

Do you remember the first Fairy Tale you ever heard? Surprisingly enough, although there are plenty of fables and folktales, very few of these traditional stories actually involve a Fae. Some of the stories were about the magical results of human adventures, some were warnings of danger and illustrative tales of what could happen if the warnings weren't heeded. There are many Truths to be learned from the tales ~ and so we present some here.

A bit of warning, though... these aren't the Disney stories, cleaned up and repopulated with sweet innocent creatures -- these are tales collected by the likes of the brothers Grimm. There is a special flavor in the writing style, in the lessons taught and the lessons learned. Some of the creatures here are frightening, some are silly, and all are in our collective memories. Some will be found told twice or more, in different ways, underscoring different lessons there within.

Please do enjoy the stories found in the links below.
