Fairy tale

What she was thinking was easy to predict.
It was written all over her face.
The feeble dreams of a mortal are so easy to vanquish.
All you have to do is give them the fairy drink,
And they will become one of us.
The price they pay is a painful one.
They give up their mortality and feelings to the devil.
And when she opened her eyes,
The fairytale ended.

This post has been posted by me for 3WW for the 3rd of August. The words are: Drink, Feeble, Predict.

  1. I like this, like the ending. But the idea is so solid and you carried it off without a hitch.

  2. how sad. you used the words well.

  3. @K~ Thanks :)

    @ThomG~ oh, well its been a while since i'd written a 3WW, so i kind of lost the practice. but i promise to do my best in the next week! X)

  4. Did an angle fall... or did some girl become the devil's disciple???


    I so love endings that confuse me... :D

  5. @Selenium~ no no no! it has nothing to do with angels. the italicized text are spoken by a fairy in the girls dreams. the girl is dreaming the whole sequence. and this sequence is like a fairy tale to her :)

  6. Very profound,very touchy and of course it has been written really well! :)

  7. very nicely written this.. the ending too..

    u did it beautifully.. don't look out of practice at all Tharangni..

  8. I like this, the darker side of faeries.

    P.S. "If you are pointing out one of the things a story is about, then you are very probably right; if you are pointing out the only thing a story is about you are very probably wrong - even if you're the author."

  9. @Tharangi - Thanks for the explaination...

    One more question? What the heck is this Fairy Drink?


  10. @Sunakshi and others~ Thanks :)

    @Selenium: In fairy stories/tales it is believed that if a mortal[human] was to drink/eat anything given by the fairies, then he/she will become a fairy immediately and will never ever carve for human food again. and the Fairy Drink is one among them :)

  11. Ah. So it was something that obvious...

    Sorry, but I've been reading the likes of Hitchcock and Agatha Christie since I was a kid... I probably started reading such stuff when I was 9 I think.

    Never read fairy tales. :|
