Fairies disappeared from earth history around 1,000 A.D, and except for legends, were forgotten by humanity. Now, after the better part of two millennia, one is back. And where does someone look for a fairy, in the future? Perhaps… on a gambling casino space station? And look what a fairy can do there… "Fey" is a sometimes-whimsical, fun, and light fantasy/sci-fi adventure. More
The Fey; a race of tiny creatures, humanoid in general appearance (size notwithstanding,) but possessing wings, and the ability to fly… as well as some other strange things. They are the fairies of legends and folk tails, and they disappeared from human history, long, long ago.
The fate of the Fey has always been tied to the fate of humanity, but they have been content to stay in the background for ages, without worry that human-kind is destined to continue on into the foreseeable future. Humanity has forgotten their very existence, as well as their role in the destiny of both races.
But now, after the better part of two millennia, one of the Fey pops up again, and in the most unlikely place: Many millions of miles away from Old Earth, on a space station that serves as a gambling casino.
A decorated war-hero, Vince Lombard, Major, Galactic Marine Corps (retired,) is now a professional gambler, traveling from casino to casino, working an old trade, and making a living as he works his way back towards Old Earth. The space station casino is just one more stop along the way, until he finds himself at the center of a brewing storm, as humans and aliens alike begin to see the potential uses a fairy can be put to. It's not just that everybody wants one. Everybody wants THIS one, and it won't be easy to find a path through the problems ahead, keeping his new Fey friend out of the hands of the government, and the aliens, alike. But an old veteran like Vince has a few tricks up his sleeve, still. Could that be why the fairy came to him?
Fairies are capable of things that humans have no explanation for. But they can't do everything, and sometimes, even a fairy needs a hand. Who better than a Galactic Marine to help, when some good old human ingenuity is called for? Maybe Vince has found a friend for life, in his Fey companion. If he can save her life, that is.
