Once upon a time ....

In the land of Gothic Arches there lived a little fairy princess. She longed to one day wed but in the land of her birth there were only girl fairies. One day her fairy god mother stopped by and saw that the little fairy princess was so sad. "Let us go on a glorious vacation" she said. "This will cheer you up" So with a flick of her magic wand they were off, whirling across the sky. Looking down fairy godmother saw a beautiful green island and knew instantly this was where they were to vacation. They landed in a beautiful circle of trees and it looked as though it had been made just for them.... hmmm... I wonder..... anyway as the day wore on they became sleepy and fell into a deep sleep. Suddenly they were awaken to the sound of a beautiful harp and and yes ...it was a male voice singing softly in a deep Irish brogue. The little fairy princess could not believe her eyes! There before her was the most hunky guy and he had wings!!! "Are you a boy fairy?" she asked "Certainly not" he replied... I am a sĂ­dhe ... which could loosely be described as a ...er...a boy fairy...but in the most masculine of ways" . The little fairy princess fell into giggles and into love. Long story short they were soon married and lived happily ever after.
