Lover Was Away…


‘The Sprite, deep in concentration, didn’t need to say anything to her lover; her lover was, just as instantly, away on the trail of the Humans.’ (the whole short story)

Finished my fabulous Sprite warrior,  relentlessly hunting down the bad humans for nine days through the dark forest and out into the human wastes, where her magic isn’t so strong… but she still is!



This is something I did a few years ago, I called it ‘Little Lost Lamb’ (: I’ve called this post ‘Testing’ because it looks like, for whatever reason, my last few posts, though visible to me, on my blog, are not appearing in the general community… so I’m going to post this then go straight to the tags I’ve posted it under, to see if it is there…

… how interesting; it was there. Yet, my last few posts are not. I did tell the ‘awesomeness team’ (or whatever-the-hell they call themselves (the WordPress Help desk)) about this when I realised I couldn’t find my last few posts under their tags, so perhaps they fixed it? Strange.

She Tracked Them for Nine Days WIP3


Nearly finished my lethal champion of little wood-Elves (:

She Tracked Them for Nine Days WIP2


I’ve actually never given one of my lethal Sprite warrior-cuties pointed ears, before, but, hell, it just looks right, doesn’t it (:

She Tracked Them For Nine Days WIP

I might try to illustrate my whole ‘Tale of a Little Wood-Elf’. This is my sketch for the first image I want to do, this is the fabulous, scary, tough-as-nails Elite Sprite, racing through the dark forest, homing in on the rapist, murdering scum who did such bad stuff to the little Wood-Elf. Boy, is she gunna make them pay




Dark Forest Sprite

Trickster Sprite

I have my own take on Sprites. My Sprites are the scariest of the Fae, whilst they can love, they are more often malevolent and vindictive, and, whilst bound by obscure rules of honour and accountability, are usually entirely unfathomable, and totally unpredictable. If they decide they like you, either instantly, or because you do something they respect, they will love and protect you as long as you (not they, they live for ever) live. If they take a dislike to you, you are, basically, screwed. Sprites are vastly stronger than humans and all other Fae, and they are virtually un-killable. They also access the deepest, strongest, darkest Fae magic… in fact, Sprite magic is a thing above Fae magic, a thing all other Fae have absolute respect for. If you meet one in a forest, you must turn and walk away, do not listen to any promise they make, do not look back… if you are lucky, they will respect your obvious appreciation of your worthlessness, and not decide to play with you. You would not survive their playing.
