I have it on good authority that fairies exist.  And wear boots.

I always figured the fairies were just joking, and never took what they said seriously.

It was my first visit to California, summer 1987.  Mom was in a corporate apartment in Sacramento, and she had the whole week planned.  She was telling me about it over breakfast.

"... and tomorrow we're going to take the Fairy to San Francisco!"

I literally did shoot coffee out of my nose.  "What?  Who?"

"San Francisco.  We're catching the ferry in Vallejo and taking it to San Francisco."

/d'oh!

When Eldraine was released there were some play decks for Arena that showed off the newly-implemented commander rules. The one I got featured Alela, and was really fun and stupid OP. Like, I dunno if I just got lucky or something and everyone else was really bad? I'm not the best MTG player, but I stomped everyone I played with that deck.

Sadly this did not translate when using standard rules, she's just too hard to get on the table. Every so often I'll revisit and refine, something to get me closer to a proper paper deck. Angelic Visitation is a given, friggin angels with vigilance popping out the woodwork is hard to handle for most folks. That's not standard anymore, sadly. She's a very unloved card these days. I was kinda stoked for party mechanics, but she's not even a wizard so that's right out.

My favorite thing was throwing a couple of of the basic any-color lands in. Alela is three-color so it helps, but by the end you can use them to slap down anything you can Fae of Wishes into your hand and sandbag your opponent. Stupid things, like Song of Creation that's red/green. I think I got more wins from my opponent giving up when they saw that card than any wins otherwise. Despite the abysmal win rate, veteran players who know what's up at least respect an original Alela deck as entertaining to play.

I don't understand the mindset that ancient societies were absolutely literal with no embellishment at all.  If they drew pictures of people with animal heads then people with animal heads absolutely existed in their time.  As if the idea of fiction and storytelling is a brand new concept.  If anything, I'd expect ancient people to have very rich imaginations and tell all kinds of fictional tales.  After all, what else did they have to do at night but sleep, fark, and tell stories in the dark?

should article writers get desperate enough to create stupid/dramatized headlines to grab eyeballs??

probably

because the mainstream news has made it a New Standard.

"A cache of bronze, jade, and gold artifacts as well as evidence of ancient sacrificial rituals were unearthed. Some of the artifacts, scientists said, are one-of-a-kind objects that hint at the "fairy world" of ancient Chinese religion and thought."

Yeah, so does a Ouija board.

Calling what this Chinese discovery represents "fairies" is really putting a western veneer on it.  As the article notes, these are really spirits or minor gods, which world religions are full of.
