fairies

Was reading an illustrated Sleeping Beauty in which the fairy godmothers were the winged, fluttery Victorian flower fairy type.

sigh.

At which point my muse started to suggest that it was juvenile fairies.  They would grow up and in due course lose their wings and give up this fairy godmothering business.

Perhaps the wings are even toys for children.

Amazing how ideas can pop up without a story to go with them.
