“I had an inheritance from my father,
It was the moon and the sun.
And though I roam all over the world,
The spending of it’s never done.”
― Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls
The world has always had more than one shadow. Though to speak of it to humans, it would be easy to believe it was not so. For generations, they lived alongside the Otherworld, understanding its pull on them and marking the days that gave them glimpses of what lay beyond.
But time moved on and so did humanity. Other things, other beliefs, other traditions subsumed what had been before and before long the world, as well as the beings within, were divided. A choice had to be made.
Many fae found themselves comfortable in the world of the humans, willing to play their games and happily wear their faces, maybe even learn to love their ways. But many others clung to the Otherworld, believing that their ways could never and should never be changed. Eventually, the divide between them became so profound as to rend reality and sever the links that bound them together, leaving those who had adopted the human world as their homeland- stranded.
It was easy to forget. Easy to live in another way, in another life. While meanwhile in the distant mystic realms, the royal bloodline weakened.
The general idea is that a group of fae who have been living in the mortal world for their entire lives will be pulled through unexpectedly to the Otherworld. Preferably they know little to nothing about the place and many of the old traditions as it has been at least three generations since any contact was had between the two realms.
