N is for Neck #AtoZChallenge








Origin:  Scandinavia



Description: The Neck is a water faerie who hang out in rivers and lakes and plays the harp.  He is handsome with blond hair, beard and green eyes.  He wears a red cap.  Like many fae, he is afraid of iron.



Disposition:  He demands a human sacrifice every year.  (What he'll do if he doens't get it is unclear.) It doesn’t matter that he takes pity on young men that have been spurned by their lovers.  He’s still a bit of a shit.

  1. I haven't heard of the Neck before. Faeries are so endlessly fascinating...and deadly.

    1. I know! Some people snicker when I tell them I write about faeries. I want to tell them my faeries will rip their faces off! But instead I just bite my tongue.

    1. Me, too! Only difference is mine had auburn hair and played a guitar. My mother used to refer to him as the "Red Headed Bastard." She didn't like him.
