Q:What are your "contact with fairies" protocols? Are your prepared in the case of fairy encounters?
You can always be more prepared, of course.
And it depends on which type of fairies, but in cases of Fairy Emergency, my general policy is thus:
- Be polite, but not thankful; generally, they don’t like that.
- Don’t step on any toadstools or in any fairy rings and respect the nature around you.
- Don’t take anything of theirs, not even a bramble on your clothing or a leaf in your hair.
- Leave something of yours (that is of value) for them.
- If lost, turn shirt inside out and put it on backwards to find your way again.
- If you have anything edible, offer it or leave it behind.
- Do NOT eat/drink anything offered, but decline with a simple “I couldn’t.” This is polite but doesn’t insist that other food is better/makes you fuller/all you’ll eat.
- Don’t make any wagers, bets, or play any games. Especially don’t answer riddles.
- Never, ever dance.
- If they do something nice for you, leave out milk and a candle for three nights — either in the place they were last seen (at day break) or for the next three New Moons in a north facing window.
- Don’t ever mention the encounter to anyone.
There are a few tips I’m missing, but it wouldn’t be polite to mention them.
I don’t know how I’m in a place in my life where I could not only agree to but confirm most of these steps.
we’re signees! here’s a treat!
Alvvays is a pretty terrific band making a name for themselves around here, Molly and Kerri hail from my own shores so of course everyone is proud as peacocks about it. Including me of course! But the reviews are great across the board, and anyway, the proof is in the pudding.

Q:infj buddies! have you done a test recently? every time i take it i get a different answer so you may have changed since the last time!
That’s quite probable. It’s been a long while. I think I’ve become more extroverted? But I still have introvert tendencies. I’m definitely more of an ambivert. The full description still sounds a lot like me though, and it’s sort of fun being the rarest type.
MBTI most accurate descriptions
ESTP: super attractive physically but it’s all downhill from there. never quite know what they’re going to do next but you can probably bet it will be irresponsible. somehow still lovable.
ESTJ: loud, logical, and get shit done — they are the warrior class of the life rpg. power stats make them unbeatable and if you encounter one, maybe just curl up and forfeit, to save time.
ESFP: giggly little shits. fun fun fun till her daddy takes the t-bird away. great for lifting your mood, not that great at lifting your credit score.
ESFJ: too appropriate, totally lacking in awkwardness. they’ll never forget your birthday, which will make you feel like shit when you constantly forget theirs.
ENTP: excellent companions if you enjoy people who instantly see through all your shit. very clever and very intuitive, you can’t fool them. i suggest you invest in other friends — ones you *can* fool.
ENTJ: impatient with people who make mistakes, namely, everyone. they’ll respect you if you stand up to them but why do that when you can run away instead. cuddle them and see what happens. i’m curious.
ENFP: too puppy to live. best suited for the profession of musical nanny. not advised for use around an open flame.
ENFJ: way too charming and capable, maybe they should stop making everyone else look bad. prone to making other people care about stuff they didn’t want to care about. so annoying.
ISTP: such butts. best suited for an apocalypse scenario, if no such scenario exists, they will create danger because they get bored. don’t encourage them, but don’t discourage them, as reverse psychology works too well.
ISTJ: low drama and low maintenance, best value at this price tier. best suited to actual human existence. least weird, which makes them kinda weird.
ISFP: squishy little darlings you might want to keep in your pocket, but please don’t or they will become forlorn. they notice everything, and it’s unnerving.
ISFJ: quietly and proudly do things for others. if you have a ring you need to deliver to mordor, take an ISFJ along with you for best results.
INTP: cute intergalactic spiders you want to hug and mistrust. prone to making you laugh but then days later you will wonder whether you were the butt of the joke.
INTJ: major dicks and kinda proud of it. prone to being right. prone to liking trance music way too much. all the ones i’ve ever met have been unexpectedly kinky. so i guess, expectedly.
INFP: they fall out of the sky and are raised by unicorns. if you feed one it will follow you home. they dissipate in water.
INFJ: chameleons appropriating your emotions and going quietly mad. prone to meltdowns and needing lots of naps.
Hah, I am INFJ (which incidentally is the rarest personality type, fitting only 1% of the population)*. While you are not looking I may also appropriate your accent and several of your hobbies. What’s this ‘going’ business on the madness?
*I found this out a few years ago when my psychologist friend gave me odd look and said, ‘Sophie, I’m going to psycho-analyse you.’
