Elves often write to us [by mail] asking what they can do to promote their elfin natures… […] The best we can do really is to say: be yours’elf [your elven self], be as kind and loving as possible to absolutely everyone without endangering yours’elf, be creative… […] As long as you are gentle and compassionate, as long as you live in harmony with your nature and greater Nature, as long as you think and act from the depths of your own inner being… you can do no wrong. There are no rules to being elfin… only tendencies and inclinations.Excerpt from The Silver Elves, “Elfin nature,” originally posted ca. 1984-1998.

I am known in some places as Arethinn. I'm 34, Californian, Pagan, faery/sidhe, nerd, library technician (cataloger). What are
little big fae made of? Starlight and glitter... silver lamps of fae-light under hill... the crescent moon and the evening star in the west... sunlit redwood trees and streams... oh, and Severus freakin' Snape. I tend to be sarcastic and introverted and I am not very good at looking like a beautiful, kind, interesting person 'cause, yanno, I am kinda not one. I post a good deal of otherkin-related stuff here, but also reblog photos and fantasy/faerie art, a bit of Harry Potter fanart, and dashes of random. Rah rah Ravenclaw!
