Ok, so… do fairies HAVE to really puny and tiny?

Question by Sylus Alexander: Ok, so… do fairies HAVE to really puny and tiny?
I just really want to know, because in my story there’s this boy fairy and — I don’t want to tell anyone so they don’t steal my ideas. Ok, so I personally really don’t like fairies, but I’ll accept it for this story… lmeo.

Now, I know that fairies are really puny, and small, and tiny, and shrimps, and diminutive, and petite, and pocket – sized human beings…. but I just want to know if there are any human sized fairies!? Please answer my question peepoles! I really want to know! Because I just don’t like the puny shrimps… pardon my language. *^_^*

Answer by Carver
puny shrimps, oh heavens to betsy, the profanity!
Anyway, I think elves can be considered human height? They are fictional so make them what you want.

    Do you watch True Blood? If so yes. There are in fact human sized fairies.

  • Evian Adams:

    there are human sized fairies.

  • Star:

    Yes, faeries come in all shapes and sizes and there are many different types of faeries as well. I recommend you read some of Brian Froud’s books for inspiration. He is my favourite faerie artist. His books contain artwork and also information about faeries. I am working on a novel myself. The story of a fae (half elf, half faerie who is the size of a human and can shapeshift) and I draw lots of my inspiration from looking at art and researching faeries. Good luck on your story :)

    There’s a certain degree of crossover territory with nymphs. The Queen Faeries are often depicted as having human size. Popular theories indicate that the belief in fairies is a leftover from belief in the Tuatha De Danann — who almost certainly were of a larger size. You can pretty much do what you want with ’em.

    Uber faeries reject your slurs, prepare for retaliation.

  • im smart but im still stupid:

    in stories i have read they have had the apearence of humans but too beautiful to be human and they look really graceful-like dancers

  • Bastion:

    In most mythology, fairies/faeries aren’t tiny at all. In celtic mythology the majority of fairies are human-sized.

  • WendyP:
