Oh, and the carnivorous horse. Don't look him in the mouth.
Darc
Probably shouldn't get on his back either. They're nasty things.
Golux
Beware the Kelpie, the riderless horse at the ford...
Silka
Unless you happen to be half elf, half goblin, and think that kind of thing is fun as hell. XD (Name the webcomic, get a cookie...)
TrueMe
Mixed Myth, http://mixedmyth.comicgenesis.com/ This comic needs more love
Silka
I agree, but Mixed Myth is also finished, so... *gives TrueMe the promised cookie!*
bscruffy
Him? I believe "Nightmares" are hers.
Yojimaru
You shouldn't touch them at all! All it takes is for a hand to foolishly be placed upon a Kelpie's adhesive skin for it to drag you into the river and eat you.
Tamar
The pooka.
PhycoKrusk
Remember kiddies: Catch her on a bad day, and even Tinkerbell will wreck you.
Phoenix
Yeah! Just ask Robin Williams from his work in Peter Pan!
Ted Schiller
In a television production, she told the Lost Boys that Wendy was a Wendybird and Peter would be impressed if they killed her with bow and arrow.
Torechwen
That bit was also in the book, for that matter...

You have to remember that with the Fae, those behaviours we collectively call "humanity" just aren't present. To them, there is no immorality or cruelty in crushing a human being like a child might crush a toy that no longer amuses him.
Ellie
So essentially, the Fae are a society of sociopaths. Lovely.
McBob
Not at all. They are quite functional and compliant to their own society; it's just not human society. They're not Sociopaths; they're Fae.
Torechwen
I suppose that we, as "lower" creatures, simply do not seem to require the same behavioral patterns applied to us as they would apply to their kin.
Red
Kehehe, Terry Pratchett fan, Darcy? ;P
Darc
Actually not really. Matt is, though. :D
Random Guy
So that is where Diomedes got his man eating horses from.
Icala
Man eating horse looks like a kelpie to me.
celtcath
When dealing with the Fey, Iron is King.
KeeCoyote
Well there a few things you can do to make the fey avoid you. If your female its something very strange and NSWF to threaten to do in a feys presence. No it's not that :)
Random Guy
All this bother over a broken window.

I'd previously considered the Christian concept of Hell (as codified by the Church) as incompatible with the Fae legends, until recently seeing mention of a Fae tithe to the Hell in one other place, in which pagan theology was already thoroughly mixed and mingled in. Where does the idea of this tithe come from? Is this from Shakespeare, or Dante, or somewhere else entirely?
Matt
@DanialArin - To be honest? I have no clue. Well, really, it came from the annexation of the pagan tribes of Ireland, Britain, and Scotland into the Roman church, as they needed to demonize the old religion. However, it's since gone through several literary and mythological (mytholitical?) transformations. Once introduced, the story probably made it's way into the bardic tradition and then mutated, as legends are wont to do. Eventually, various forms were written down, leading to the legends we have now.
