This is my interpretation of fairies and their magic, personality, and culture.

Fairies live in Fairyland. It is a place full of nature and magic. Fairies can travel to our world whenever they wish, but we cannot go to their world unless one takes us there.

Fairies are typically kind, peaceful and wise, but there are also the small fairies, the pixies, who are more playful and mischevious. Pixies enjoy traveling to the human world to play tricks on people without being seen. Their only form of magic is their fairy dust, which they can use to do just about whatever depending on how skilled they are at using it. All fairies have fairy dust, but most fairies have other forms of magic as well, but since the pixies use only fairy dust all the time, they can handle it better than most all other fairies.

There are also the dark fairies. Good fairies have been battling with the dark fairies since the beginning of time, but for the past several hundred years, the dark fairies have lived on their own in secluded areas of the forest, forced into hiding for fear of being kicked out of Fairyland, as many of their ancestors were. There they practice their dark magic and learn many secrets that normal fairies would never dare learn.

The magic of fairies depends on the type of fairy. The 6 main types of fairies are: light, night, water, fire, nature, and air. Light fairies have control over various aspects of light, such as rainbows, the brightness of light, the way the sun hits the leaves, etc. Night fairies are nocturnal and can move the stars to create new constellations. Water fairies live in or near the water and control the various types of water. They can control where it flows, when it falls, etc, Fire fairies can control fire and spread it wherever they desire. Many fire fairies become dark fairies, but the ones that don't use their powers to protect the other fairies. Nature fairies watch over animals and have control over the growth of plants. Air fairies can control the breeze as well as natural disasters like tornadoes and hurricanes. For more on the types of fairies, see my other article.

The culture and personality of fairies greatly depends on the type. Pixies (That is it's own type. Pixies do not fall under light, night, water, fire, nature, or air.) are very social and often live in fields of flowers. Pixies care a lot about community and often come together to sing and dance or the pixies with particular skill will perform for the others. Pixies also like to plot their tricks together and perform them as a team.

The personality of light fairies varies greatly, but they are typically kind, optimistic introverts. They are very helpful to eachother and enjoy spending time together.

Night fairies are solitary fairies who's favorite passtime is to fly around the night sky, or sit on a tree branch to look at it. They are very quiet, observant people who rarely interact with others.

Water fairies are generally calm and wise. They, as well as night fairies, are very mysterious and enjoy keeping to themselves. Water fairies are, however, far more social than night fairies.

Fire fairies are typically bold and fierce. They are passionate about what they believe in and speak their minds. They are also very social.

Nature fairies are quiet, beautiful, graceful, mysterious, and of course very sweet and kind. They are talented singers and often very romantic and poetic. They are friendly to other fairies, but prefer keeping to themselves.

Air fairies are difficult to describe. They are kind, quiet, and very, very intuitive.
