F#46: Mewts/Pond Sirens

Starting mid-February and going on into early spring, waterways across the world come alive with the piping calls of the ‘pond siren’ or ‘mewt’, a freshwater fae.

Stories tell of the mewt confusing travelers in the dark and tricking them into falling in streams and ditches- if you hear a mewt crying, know that you are by a body of water.

Despite their fishy appearance, mewts are in fact mamals, and breathe out of the water- in the late winter you might spot one coming out to bask in the weak sunlight.

F#45: Feral Faerie

Far from the sophisticated faeries of the otherworld, feral faeries are insect-like and aggressive if approached.

Preferring to stay away from humans, they congregate in remote areas and ancient places where the skin between worlds is at its thinnest.

They’re highly territorial, and will attack if approached. Treat with caution.
