For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the disheveled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
William Butler Yeats, The Land of Heart’s Desire
What if…a band of twinkling fairies kidnapped you from your bed in the middle of the night?
No sound would accompany my fairies as they make their way into my bedroom. Rather, through my half-closed eyelids I would see a dull glow lingering above me that would grow brighter. The glow, however, would not be the result of a form of light; instead, it would be made up of sparkles littering the long, colorful eyelashes of each minute pixie. As they flutter their eyelids more rapidly, large quantities of glittering, rainbow-colored sparkles would fall upon the blankets concealing my form, peeling them away from my body so that the cool night air would leave a trail of tiny goosebumps along my exposed arms. In the darkness, I would hear a single bell ring loudly, and suddenly find myself accoutered in Alice + Olivia’s Sequin Keyhole Dress.
Each of the fairies would open their mouths, mimicking a look of laughter; instead of giggles heard so often, bells would tinkle in their place, ringing over and over again and allowing me to rise higher and higher above my bed until I would hover midair and float directly out the window, and into a pink cloud which would suck me in like a vortex and spit me out upon a grassy plain covered in flowers constructed out of colorful cotton candy. I would look up, into the face of a neverending castle; my new home – for I, as I would soon learn, was to be christened Fairy Queen.
What would happen if a band of twinkling fairies kidnapped you, my loves? What would they look like? What would they make you wear? Where would they take you? You know you want to share!
