The schadenfreude-stealer-fairy is obviously from the Unseelie Court. :p
Are you so sure about that? I think the Unseelie Court would want to ENCOURAGE schadenfreude and other nasty emotions. “The better to turn those foolish mortals against one another … and then WE will reign AHAHAH!”
Hmm. I had never heard of the Unseelie Court until I read your comment. After Googling the phrase, I now believe I’m a victim of said “court”. If it wasn’t for bad luck, I’d have NO luck at all.
So Mort are you a fan of Gunnerkrig Court?
In one series of books I read, the Unseelie fae actually drew power from “negative” human emotions such as hatred, fear and jealousy. So, yeah, I’m sure they’d be all in favor of a big, heaping helping of schadenfreude. Naturally, the Seelie fae drew power from “positive” emotions, such as love and happiness, so the two courts both tried to influence humanity in ways that would benefit them.
Definition of SCHADENFREUDE: enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others
What does it say about Teutonic culture that this is a German word?
They are prevalent at conventions. Have you ever noticed that free stuff sneaks into your bag without you noticing it? Swag fairies.
Most faeries don’t leave you jack, they just abduct your newborns and leave their own in their place.
Technically, that could be swag depending on your feelings about your newborns. Free changeling baby!
And indeed, changeling babies ARE incredibly delicious!
I like my schadenfreude with a side of fries and a chocolate milk shake.
