I am not the only one who is really not human. There are other Fey out there, and I know some of them. There are others out there who are not elves, but are not of this world, either. Stuffed into human bodies as well, there are dragons and were-creatures and beings I cannot define. We are here for a reason, and that reason is to keep the magic alive that so many people on this planet have forgotten to see. A time will come when we will need it.
Selkies call to a sea they never swam, in a tongue they never spoke, with a song they never learned.
