"Also, you might wanna talk to your cats about eating fae critters, if they're dumb enough to do so. That could lead to some serious indigestion and stolen keys or dead flowers and such."
If this is true then I am in some serious trouble. My kitties get mighty frisky at times and I always wonder....... and why the world DID those flowers just up and die. No slugs or snails were visible and there was not a shred of evidence of disease either.
I have to say I am one of the disbelievers. But, (and this is a huge but), since I do believe in all types of energy sources, and that there are things that we cannot account for in our lives (missing keys that you KNOW you had in your purse because you are practicing a new habit to be more reliable), I have also got to say that everything is possible.
All that is living carries an energy source. I like to think it is linked to our souls. And when our bodies die, our energy is released into the world, maybe to become another human, but certainly re incarnated. So if you think on, like finds like. If our energy is out there without a body and their energy is out there traveling through dimensions we cannot see; maybe we have a lot more in common than previously thought.
I also agree (head nodding while typing) about the alien references and what could be the Fae. One more wrinkle. What if it is an extreme case of evolution and they have merely found a way of time travel? That could essentially be us from the future. Large eyes to better see the computer screen, long fingers to better type with, small mouths because we hardly eat leading sedentary lives in front of the computer, and no sex organs because we all procreate in a pitre dish! Something to think on, eh?
