Fae of the Dark by enayla Fae of the Dark by enayla
Cruel games with dolls that have lost their stuffing. Dolls with their button eyes plucked out and their stitching slowly writhed away across the floor.

Dolls that are small, broken, hopeless and lifeless. Dolls that no longer matter. No longer move and sing; no longer play games or laugh joyously as they run through the woods.

Toys that are quiet; somber.

It's the combination of your words and subject matter which are so chilling here. Your description of broken toys is so much more powerful than the simple statement that 'Fae of the dark break their toys'. Your rendition is beautifully detailed, from the toes curling into the grass to the capriciously teasing expression to the tentacle-like tatters of her wings...but it's your description, coupled with the careless caress of the small slumped body beside her, that makes a shiver run down my spine.

This reminds me of the legends of the Fae who spirit children away and always keep them with them, eternally children.

Makes me FEEL like nickname Moondeva: for looks to me this Dark Fae has blood on her hands from protecting the little girl... Anyway I fell in love with furiae (L.B.) when I saw "All that I wanted is gone." and found the road to DeviantArt then some 5 years ago. Populair site now. Your pix & poëms along rock!

The broken little girl makes my heart clench in the worst kind of way.

I commend you for making something that is such a swift punch to the gut; the fact that a picture can inspire that emotion is amazing to me.

I don't know what to say. It is brutally honest. The contrast between the how pretty the winged creature is and what she might have done is thought provoking!

i fabed this a long time ago, but i guess i never relized that this was so evil, a murderous fairy that steals the eyes and lives of children. Poor little baby. Other than that it's a beautiful piece.

This is amazing. Lovely wings, the grass is beautiful etc...but it's the blood on the hands that sells this for me! Along with the slightly creepy little girl, that is. :)

Ok...that's a bit weird to say about a fae woman that has just killed a small child...but the piece is beautiful!

I'm linking it to my fanfiction page because it is exactly how I pictured this evil fae woman in my Labyrinth Fanfic.
