Fairy: Hey I didn’t get your name.
Me: Yeah that was on purpose.
Fairy: Oh my god stealing people’s names has been categorized as a war crime for like a hundred years. Do I seem like the kind of fairy that would do war crimes?
Me: Well yes, but that’s just my impression of you personally. Not fairies in general.
Fairy: You’re smarter than I thought.
Me: So is the fairy monarch democratically elected?
Fairy: I think the one from a small corner of Alabama might be but for the most part, no. It’s still decided by a contest between the three oldest children.
Me: What kind of competition?
Fairy: Well it used to be to the death but that was too violent so these days each kingdom comes up with their own. In mine I think they play marbles but I’ve never seen one.
Me: Okay so why shouldn’t I say thank you or give gifts in return for favors?
Fairy: That’s mostly a regional thing but where I’m from it’s insulting to the wealth of the person giving you stuff. Like you really only thank people when what they did was like a huge burden so if you thank someone for giving you something that’s like calling them poor.
Me: Fairies have wealth inequality?
Fairy: I mean we technically still live under a feudal system if I’m being honest but with modern technology and ethics nobody notices.
Me: Do you have Internet down there?
Fairy: Only dial-up. That’s why I come to your house.
Fairy: So you’re telling me that human men don’t think that frog eyes are sexy?
Me: Well not most of them to my knowledge.
Fairy: So I bought these contacts for nothing.
Me: Hey man you don’t have to be a frog spirit to lure men into your clutches. Plenty of dudes are into cat eyes and ghoulish moaning.
Fairy: You really think so?
Me: I know so! Stop doubting yourself so much. You can definitely find some mortal men to lure into the timeless void for several centuries and adopt a demon cat with you.
Fairy: Thanks, man. That means a lot.
Fairy: So humans... don’t eat glass?
Me: No? It’ll cut up our insides and kill us.
Fairy: Ooohhhh. Oh no.
Me: What did you do now?
Fairy: More like... what I’ve done over the past three centuries since I moved out of my mom’s house.
Me: Did the coughing up of blood not cue you into anything?!?!!
Fairy: I thought that humans just spontaneously die sometimes!
Me: No we don’t! There’s physical reasons for these things!
Fairy: So... no more bringing nightshade and glass entrees to the potluck?
Me: So why mushrooms as portals?
Fairies: Look man, even we don’t mess with mushrooms alright? Sometimes they open up a portal to the human world and it’s just best to not question it.
Me: So wait. You don’t make the fairy circles?
Fairy: No. Mushrooms decide.
