An Out of Context Incident
« on: May 15, 2021, 03:11:54 AM »
>You are one of the fair folk and a former member of the Seelie Court.  Once you served one of the lower nobility, but death released you from your obligations.  Coming back from the dead was a surprise.
>Your most recent memory is escaping from a human supremacist group.  Something happened causing the group's members to flee or charge then that weird human opened your cage.  Fleeing with your wrists bound with rope inlaid with iron, one of human then you ran into that mirror. . .

>You've found yourself in a thick old forest.  The trees are different from any trees you've ever encountered and the air is strangely humid.  Judging from the sun it is early in the morning or you have a few hours before dark.
>A quick glance doesn't reveal any clues.  Maybe investigating closer might reveal something.
>Ahead you can hear singing.
>Behind you the forest seems darker.

>...How big was our bosom supposed to be!?
>Do we not have wings normally? What species of fae are we, for that matter? An actual fairy, or one of the other types of Fair Folk lumped under the term (Elves, pixies, leprechauns, the youkai equivalents, etc.)?
>Our lord? Who is he?
>What land do we hail from?
>Wait... We died? How and why?

>Checking your head you find no halo.

>You remember the warrior of the human king, that your lord had sent his servants to vex, seeing you die.  You can't be sure if any of the other servants saw your death.

>Your bosom was bigger than a handful.  A C to D size if you remember the human measurements from after your revival.
>You normally don't have wings
>You are a Sidhe.  Normally you look human though a bit ugly and short.

>You served Lord Bree, a minor Lord in England.
>Originally you lived in Ireland, but moved to England to find work.

>You died when that warrior of the local human lord stabbed you with an iron sword.  Even after all this time you can feel the fairy magic that clung to him.
>You're not a hundred percent sure on the why.
-> It may have to do with Lord Bree having the servants and you glamour the human lord so that saw food that wasn't there and real food looked and tasted of garbage.
->It may have been because you took food from human homes.
->Perhaps, it was because the humans that chanced upon your lord's parties danced themselves to death.

>The human lord's offense against lord Bree eludes you.

>Are we one of those fae varieties that have a crippling weakness to iron?
>What was Lord Bree like? Is he a Sidhe like us?
>How odd does the sensation of wings feel? Could we get used to this?
>Why were we messing with the human lord's food? Was it simple mischief or did the humans do something to deserve such action in retribution?
>>What is our opinion of humanity?

>What does the singing sound like? Are the lyrics in a recognizable language?
>On that note, what languages do we understand aside from English and possibly Gaelic and/or Irish? What is our level of comprehension (Read only? Fluent speaking? Basic phrases and vocab?)?
>Do we hear any running water or see any ponds or puddles in the vicinity?
>>If so approach and observe our reflection if we are able.

//EDIT:
>What year is it anyway?

>Iron is poisonous and deadly to you and makes it impossible to use your magic if your touching it.

>Lord Bree paid well in gold coins and tended to attend events in Avalon.  He was always careful to maintain his reputation and was pleasant to be around as long as you obey the rules of etiquette.
>Thinking on the subject you think that Lord Bree had taken offense at the human lord traveling through Lord Bree’s territory without a gift or permission.
>Lord Bree was a Fey like Morgan Le Fey.

>Now that you realize that they are there you can feel the air against them when they flap involuntarily, but you can’t feel the weight of them.
→Surprisingly, they feel familiar.  It won’t be difficult to get use to your wings.

>Your voice is naturally high pitched.
->Only the most talented of humans can compare to your singing and with glamour your able to almost hypnotize humans like a siren.
–>You know several songs in old Fey, English, French, and Irish.

>You can read and write in Irish.
>English and French you understand well, but you cannot write in these.
>You know some phrases of Chinese
>Finally you know a few words of Dutch, Finnish, and old Fey.


>Humanity is weird. 
>You have no compulsion against stealing from them, but they would need to slight you for you really want hurt them.  If a human helped you, you would happily reward them. 
>What you find weird about them is that they came from before the world like Titania and Mab and humans are also called the children of the gods.  There are rumors that in sufficient numbers they can alter reality like the gods and in the East they give life to their tools.

>You faintly hear the sound of splashing.
>Sweat drips down your face as you come to a small pond fed by a brook.

>Fairies are swimming and splashing each other.

>You approach the pond and look down.
>Despite the ripples you can see your reflection clearly.
->Looking back at you is a child with insect wings.
–>Your reflection looks just like the fairies that are playing.

>Picking up your hair you notice it isn’t the natural red you were use to instead it was a bright (Please pick a hair color)

> “Oy, weren’t you going to play tag with Cirno and the others?”  A fairy with violet hair calls out to you.

//So what hair color should we pick?

>Do we have an irish accent?
>"...Who?"
>Wait, it's the year 2261 and we were killed with a sword? Don't humans have way less archaic tools at their disposal, or did the one that killed us just have an appreciation for classics?
>Actually, considering the fact that we're supposed to be dead, wonder if the afterlife is supposed to be this odd.

>She is.

>You actually have an English accent in normal circumstances though when your tired or stressed it changes into an Irish one.

>The purple haired fairy rolls her eyes, "You know.  She always turns tag into freeze tag."
>Noticing the lack of recognition on your face she jerks a thumb at a fairy relaxing in the shade while dangling her legs in the water.
>"She's an icy fairy like Chilly.  Looks like Cirno's reflection."



>The 'ice' fairy's eyes snap open, "Don't name me!"

>It was 1608 when he killed you.
>When you came back in 2055, humanity had things such as heat seaking bullets and iron golems.

>Pondering on the afterlife you don't think it should be this weird.
>It really depends on which afterlife you go to and if you peaked a god's interest
>You haven't heard of changing into a fairy before.

>You might have died a second time
->You don't remember anything between running into the mirror and waking up here

>Several of the fairies seem surprised at your question.

>"Eh, you're kidding, right.  We're in Gensokyo,"  The purple haired fairy responds.
>"Why are you speaking funny?"  A black haired fairy asks.

>No, your speaking in some Chinese mixed in with that language you shouldn't be able to understand.

>"Its uhh." The purple haired fairy glances around for some clue.
>"Japan," The 'ice' fairy meets the purple haired fairy's eyes.  "The great fairies said we're in Japan."

>The black haired fairy cocks her head. "Because you don't normally speak like that and you're mispro pronun - saying words weird."

>If so we should probably alert them about that mirror if we ever found our way back to <insert country we're supposed to be in>

>What do we know about Japan aside from the fact that it's an island nation in east Asia? Or do we somehow not even know that much?
>"I see... What do you mean I don't normally speak like this? I don't believe I've met you before."

>There are plenty of people in the fae courts that can deal with dangerous magical artifacts
->You don't know of anyone personally though

>You know that the Japanese people are famous for giving life to inanimate objects
->Being an island nation they likely suffered from tsunamis because of the world serpent's return
->The land is run by different gods with overlapping territory
->Finally there is an unlikely chance your magic may do nothing or may do unexpected things

>The black haired fairy seems a little flustered at your response.
>"You're not this polite.  You speak shorter.  And and, I don't like this prank."

>"Fairies aren't supposed to prank fairies.  Its the unspoken rule," The purple fairy nods to herself.

>Thinking about if the mirror forced you to possess a fairy you cannot think of a reason why it would be impossible.
->It would explain your body and why the fairies are acting like they know you.
->That also could be why you are no longer in that group's facility
->If the fairy's soul was still here you could know the language the other's are speaking from soul's knowledge.

->Unless you do it in the territory of a god who curses people for that

>Most of the fairies look at you with skepticism.
>The purple haired fairy crosses her arms, "If it isn't a bone headed prank then what is it?"

>You don't feel any presence at the moment.
->You're not sure how you would go about actively feeling for a presence.

>Cautiously observe their reactions for any hostilities, we are outnumbered here after all,  so we should be prepared in case they take the news poorly.
