the spike over the last decade in supernatural stories

in particular the Chick Lit Rom Com genre

it is interesting to know what people think about elves and other fey folk

how many folktales/lore passed down in many countries develops regional variations

and the stories people tell vs the ones they believe

In Iceland, the department of highway (I think there is only the one, it’s not a big country)

http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2015/mar/25/iceland-construction-respect-elves-or-else

was not permitted to move a huge boulder because of the Elves

and the road project was diverted

so in a population of about 350,000 people – it is estimated that 80% of them accept the Fey folk as entirely real

including interbreeding over the generations from time to time, as primates do

so some believe that they are in part, part Fey

thinking that in north america however….. individual thought vs the mainstream, depends on what main you stream, eh?
