Real Fairy Stories

As a kid, did you believe that faeries were just a real part of life? When I was a child, I daydreamed of meeting fairies, and I always knew that their existence wasn't just a "fairy tale" but that they were spirits just as any other spirits in the world (ghosts, angels, demons, etc.). Now that I've grown up, I've come to realize that I'm not the only person who truly believes in the faeries' existence. Check out the real fairy pictures (or speculated fairy pictures) to the right, as you enjoy reading some real fairy stories told by modern folks below.

There was one real fairy story that I read awhile ago where a woman had taken a trip into the countryside somewhere in England. She was with her family and they visited an old ruined castle, and while they were there, her family took a picture of her standing in front of the castle ruins. When they developed the picture, they noticed a tiny person with a red cap poking up from behind one of the walls of the ruins. The woman researched "red cap" and "fairy" and found that there was and still is a belief in a type of fairy known as "red caps". Red Caps are actually said to have been malevolent fairies...even described as dangerous or "murderous". The legends even say that they resided in castle ruins mostly and were solitary fairies. Good thing she got away from that red cap quickly, because they also say that red caps have to kill in order to stay alive and that they can outrun a human any day!

This particular real fairy story is a story of my own. In our backyard, we have a beautiful, large grapefruit tree. The grapefruit tree has a personality all its own, and if you ever saw it...you would agree. I always thought that it would be a wonderful place for fairies to live, and one night my thoughts were verified. My family and I were sitting in the backyard by a fire, close to the Winter Solstice mind you, when I saw a shadow sitting in the tree. It was perched at the base of the branches, where the branches meet the trunk of the tree. I watched it for about ten seconds, and it seemed to be looking at me though I couldn't see any definitive features...I knew it was one of the fay. After a few seconds of staring, the fairy jumped down out of the tree (nearly scaring the daylights out of me) and ran off on the other side of the house. Could it have been a cat or a possum? Of course, it could have been...but if you're a believer in the fairies like I am, you would have known that it was a real fairy just as I did. The fairies like fruit trees and playing in the moonlight...both of which we had in our yard that night.

One young girl about the age of fifteen saw a bright, fluttering creature outside of her window one morning. She opened the window and claims that the being flew into her room and into a box on her dresser. There was a tapping inside of the box and once opening the box to let the "hummingbird" out, there was nothing inside and the tapping stopped.

Many people all over the world still have sightings and experiences with real fairies, many of which consist of seeing either gnome-like fairies or flying/fluttering fairies that shine with great brilliance. It seems to be a pattern that young girls have eyesightings of fairies...is that because they believe in what they are seeing and don't dismiss it with scientific "logic"? Science can only explain so much at this point, and until science disproves the existence of fairies...I will continue to believe. Will you?

Read about the time I was visited by a pixie...apparently pixies love new orchids! Read that real fairy story here. You can also read Nell Rose's newest hub where she interviews a leprechaun by clicking here.

SZ - Amazing! I have a similar experience. I was in a cemetery, when something flew right up to my cheek and flew away quite quickly...so quick that I knew it wasn't anything but a fairy. Thanks for sharing.

Well I'm quiet certain I saw a fairy one morning as I was walking to my school's library. Now, I'm a wildlife major and I know that the only animals that can fly in an upright position are hummingbirds...and there is no way a hummingbird would fly so closely past my face. It was a bit humorous really, I didn't really overthink it in my mind that it was a fairy until after I was inside the library

I most certainly do believe in fairies and I have made sure that my garden is a playground that any Fairy, Sprite or Garden Deva would like to spend time in.

I very much enjoyed reading this hub and agree with other commentators that is inspiring and offers hope that our fairy friends will come out to play.

Kitty,

Why not... the metaphysical realm is teaming with things we probably have never seen in every "fairy Tale' old tyme'y story has to have a sliver of truth either way. Imagination is 1/2 inspiration 1/2 imagination

How did I miss this hub? I think I shared this story with you before, but I'll tell it again: One of my clients who owned a gift shop shared with me that she and her sister, as small children, witnessed fairies on the mantel in their bedroom. She was a very credible person I I have to believe she was telling the truth.

Paradise - Thank you. The red cap story was pretty creepy, right? Unfortunately not all of the faerie folk were sweet, loveable creatures...and perhaps there are still those out there that are malicious as well as those that are benevolent. Thanks for reading! :)

Lovley stories. The "red cap" sends a bit of a chill down my spine. I always think of faeries as "good" little people.

beth - What did it look like? I'd love to hear more!

CMHypno - I have a feeling if we proved their existence, that the world would indeed feel less magical...someone would end up exploiting and ruining the magic that is the faeries...as sad as that may sound.

flashmakeit - Thanks for reading. It sounds like your artwork is fabulous!

pandula - Anything is possible!

writer20 - I'm glad to hear I've grabbed your interest.

Barnsey - I read it...very interesting story, friend. I don't think it was faeries but ghosts or energy from the land in the area. Thanks for reading!

I had my own paranormal experience as a kid. Don't know whether they were fey or what they were. See my hub - Ghost story - Barnsey's Experience with the paranormal. i would love your opinion on what it may have been. And - I am now a loyal follower.

I've never thought about fairies, thinking they are just for kids. Now you have wondering about them.

Voted up and beautiful.

Wow, i didn't believe in fairies but now I would like to see one myself. I wonder what it would be if fairies were not a mystery but real souls, visible to all of us!

I enjoyed this hub about fairies. It was full of so much enchanting fantasy that a child may have. I dream of fairies a lot but I cannot understand why so I paint them. I really like the story about the grapefruit tree it kind of reminds me of this short flash video I am working on. I have to bookmark this hub and vote up. Thanks for sharing.

Interesting hub on fairy photos kittythedreamer. I wonder if it will ever be possible to prove or disprove their existence, but would it make the world a less magical place if we did know?

Kitty, I've no doubt that dogmatic Sciencexians will never admit there are fairies or pixies and the like, but I believe I saw a fairy once, many years ago. It was just for a few moments but it was in my grandmother's garden flowers. I'd love to see one again but haven't been lucky so far. I sometimes wonder if the intrusion of man's world doesn't keep them shier than in the past.

Very interesting Hub, and love the photos!

bborello - For lack of sounding like a know-it-all, I knew that they preferred that way of spelling...I just have to also go with what gets more hits on Google. ;) Thanks, though! And yes, I can't wait to read your stories.

cleaner3 - Very very true, my friend. Thanks for sharing. :)

Ahh... my sweet fairy, of course ther are fairies. When someone writes poetry that touches your soul , only fairies can bring the inspiration. fairys, angels, are in all women if can they find their true selves.

Well Kitty, you've inspired me. I came up with a half dozen ideas for faerie hubs. Hopefully I'll get one up today. Feel free to email me for more.

BTW "they" told me to tell you they prefer an "e" after the "a" in the word faerie AND they prefer "ie" to "y"...Why? Because if you turn the word upside down and around you can find more funny faces in the letters that way.

Seeker - Thanks so much! I wish I could visit Scotland or Ireland to try to run into one of these guys over there. :) I've always been intrigued by the Sidhe. Thanks for reading, as always.

Kitty you're on a role and another very interesting hub! I have had, as you know, paranormal experiences but nothing that includes, unfortunately, the Sidhe - as they are known in Scotland and Ireland. But I found your experiences fascinating and gives much food for thought. I think there are more things in heaven and earth than definitely can ever be dreamed off!

Great hub + voted up awesome!

Sam - Yes, the faeries or "wee folk" were both benevolent and malevolent. Not a lot of people realize that, but if you get into researching the fay like I have, you will see that much of the people in the old days were fearful of much of the fay. Thanks for reading!

bborello - Oh my gosh! I would LOVE to hear your fairy stories. Please do tell or at least write a hub about it and let me know. :) Thanks so much.

I have a wealth of faerie stories...my house is overrun at times, perhaps I'll write a few hubs about them. I know they would like that very much. I have pictures too. I love to hear the stories of other people's experiences. Thanks!

I'm sitting here watching the cartoon The Fairy Oddparents and I notice this interesting hub! Actually, I didn't realize that if fairies do exist, some have been known to be dangerous! You certainly have my imagination running wild! Nice read!
