Pixie Dust

Another long comic drought eh? I assure you there is no lack of comic geniusness to come just a lack of time lately to colour and post them. I aim to be somewhat more regular with them now that I’m based back in Belfast. This comic has a nice faerie lady who is sprinkling pixie dust on an unsuspecting child. The child did not ask to be set upon by some supernatural entity, flinging pixie dust everywhere, this is an obvious invasion of personal space and tantamount to some form of mythological rape and should be treated as such. 20 years in the slammer!
Also how come no one spells fairy with an ae any more? It’s not often that we get to pair up these 2 alphabetic cousins side by side like this, (there are plenty of ea’s but not so many ae’s) so I think we should kick that pretentious i to the curb with its self important dot and welcome back the Latin ae.

Upon reading up on this for my glorious ae revolution, I find that the ae had its own ligature, where the 2 letters were bonded together like eternal brothers and considered a letter their own right as they are in Norwegian or Icelandic, And that many words (like Faerie) had their ae’s untimely ripped form their very anatomy, for example Archeology used to be Archaeology. But all this is just a very long way of saying, if we spell Faeries correctly then maybe they won’t rape us with pixie dust.
