I'm currently in the process of writing a fnatasy story about a frost fairy. I've only written 2 paragraphs so far so don't as such know where it's going. I can tell you that basically frost fairies are responsible for creating frost in witner. It's how they make their living. Basically whats going to happen is that the humans have come up with a way of stopping frost being created. The frost fairies of course want to stop this, so decide that they need to send a spokesfairy to communicate with the humans.
I've started by introducing Callie the frost fairy, but I need to explain what makes her different to other fairies. I've decided to do that by explaining the differrent types of fairies there are. But I've googled "types of fairies" and it just comes up with sprites, elves, pixies etc. But I need more detail than that. My idea is to have four main types of fairies, Fire, water, air, and earth. But these 4 are then further broke down into types for example a frost fairy is a water fairy. But I can't think of anymore examples. Could you suggest where I could find out, or maybe suggest some for me?
(To the moderators= if this is not detailed enough, please say. I've read your rules, and think I've stuck to them!)
