I'm sure there probably already is a topic on this, but does anyone believe in them or have any stories relating to them.

They used to leave me a shiny sixpence whenever I lost one of my junior teeth.  Been a long, long time since I've had a visit though.

Yes I believe in them, but not the same Tinkerbell fairies. There are different kinds of fairies, some are associated with nature spirits, ghosts and will o the wisps. Fairies are also said to be nature being extraordinary and producing amazing visuals like rainbows and fairy rings. Fairies have been part of indo European tradition for thousands of years, and Irish fairies in particular are linked with their old gods and former ancient royal families.

Oh ffs... I didn't do it! It wasn't me!

So you think they're more of a spiritual entity rather than physical

I must admit just like elfs and little people I just think they're folklore, I don't believe they exist or ever existed.

I've seen fairies before.... those were different times... but I decided I didn't want to see fairies anymore.

Fairies are a little different from bigfoot or Nessie, I haven't heard of too many sightings or alleged encounters.


Yeah, Fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me!

I saw it, I saw it with my own two eyes!

The way we picture fairies now, the little Tinkerbell, winged creatures has a lot to do with Victorian-era representations of them.

I do believe they may exist. Having read some of the literature including Jacques Vallee and Evan-Wentz's classic study, I thing that "something is going on". I wouldn't venture to slap a definite identity on fairies, any more than I would with ufos or ghosts. The core phenomenon in all these anomalies is, at this time, unknown, and may be unknowable. But I do seriously wonder if there is a non-human intelligence operating in these various uncanny areas.

IIRC Vallee has been caught out outright faking his evidence too often to be cited as a valid source.
However, referring to the traditional literature about the Fair Folk, it may be a good thing they don't bother humanity any more/exist.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
