face into his hand and breathed in the smell of his skin, his pulse I closed my teeth around the pad of flesh at the base of his thumb and sank them in, biting down deep and hard and fast What the fuck he cried out, but before he could pull his hand away, I flicked my tongue out and tasted his blood That s what I m really like, I said, my voice low and rough.i m glad that i expanded my weekly free tor short reading to include reprints as well as original fiction this week i haven t been choosing well from the originals lately, but this one i really enjoyed it is reprinted from the anthology Robots vs Fairies, which i own and have yet to read, because that s what i do i m going to try to stick to my pledge of keeping the length of my reviews commensurate with the length of the text in order to save myself the grief of making my backlog of pending reviews any bigger than it needs to be, because along with buying anthologies and never getting around to reading them, i also have a tendency to spend far time reviewing a short story than it took me to read the damn thing and maybe this is why i never get around to reading any of these books i have lying around this story bears some thinking about, though it s the story of a fairy and a man, although they meet when he is a little boy, and it is narrated through the first person POV of the fairy the fairy sees the boy and wants him, for reasons undisclosed, but it tracks him throughout the boy s life, appearing to him as different animals with devious intentions I waddled over to him, picked up a piece of bread in my beak, and did a dance I was considering luring him away and replacing his heart with a mushroom, and then sending him back to his parents so they could see the rot blossom in him He laughed at my duck dance, and I did an improbable cartwheel for him, hoping he would toddle toward me If I got him close enough to the edge of the duck pond, I could pull him under the water and drown him and weave mosses into his hairl of you bird lovers should know that this is pretty much what all ducks are thinking all of the time also appears to him as a cat I leapt onto his windowsill next to the precariously balanced, brimming bowl, and I lapped at the milk while he watched His eyes were bright and curious, and I considered filling his eye sockets with gold so that his parents would have to chisel through his skull in order to pay off their housel of you cat lovers already know that this is pretty much what all cats are thinking all of the time and it doesn t stop us from doting on them in any case in between its visits to the boy, the fairy does what fairies do, which is mischief and occasionally fatal mayhem against humans before it finally comes back to the boy again, and that first part i quoted occurs, leading to this I licked his blood from my muzzle It burned going down iron but it was enough to bind us He would run from me, but he would never be able to escape me altogether Not nowd this is where the story starts worming in because, just like in another book i recently read, In the Valley of the Sun, the supernatural assailant realizes that this binding cuts both ways, and the power dynamic is not necessarily in their favor I was bound And I am what I am So I followed.for me, the most interesting part of it is from the perspective of readerly sympathies the first person voice tends to draw the reader in, aligning them with the narrator, even if they aren t human the narrators i don t have any data on non human readers , even if they are predatorial against humans again the narrators , which this one certainly is and when things start getting precarious for the fairy, you i find found yourself myself siding with the fairy against the human, even though what he s doing is truly no reprehensible than what the fairy was doing in its day to day, with the vivisection encouragement and all that but i do believe we are to read the ending of this story as triumphant the fairy certainly does, but why is the reader drawn to the fairy over peter applauding one monster s defeat of another is it simply because of the aligning power of POV is it because a fairy is exempt from the social ethics of humans that wanting to drown little kids is just what fairies do is it because, for most of the second half of the story, the fairy is in the shape of a human woman, and it becomes a domestic abuse parallel in which we naturally root for the victim for such a short story, it s trickier than it appears on the surface, and i think it s worth digging into a little.what does all this mean well, basically it means i have failed in my mission to keep these short and sweet and not overthink them, so hooray SWEET SWEET FAILURE ALL FOR ME short

lily pad, the proper ducks were shoving their beaks into the grass to get the last of the bread, and the man and the boy were gone, and the woman was sitting in the grass with her arms wrapped around her knees and a hollowed out kind of face I would have taken her, but there wouldn t have been any sport in it She was desperate to be taken, to vanish under the water and breathe deeply until silt settled in the bottoms of her lungs.Besides I wanted the boy.Chills The next time they meet, the fairy is a cat.This story really didn t go in the direction I thought it would, but I recommend it if you don t mind a horror type of tale and dealing with two extremely unpleasant main characters Kudos to Sarah Gailey for setting up the shift in sympathies and perceptions so well flag 37 likesLike

in their own gruesome creativity But as Peter ages, he wises up to what this creature really is, and the tables get turned Actually, this story is just a turntable, with the abuse flowing back and forth because Peter isn t such a great guy, either The ending wasn t really a surprise it was mildly interesting, but that s really about all I can say.The writing was just mediocre for me Aside from a few technical errors, I didn t really like the way I couldn t place the time period When the story began, I thought it must ve been set long in the past But when Peter grows up to engage in really high tech pursuits like implanting interfaces into cockroach brains so he can control them wirelessly , I had to reevaluate my initial assessment I guess it s supposed to take place in the present day but that just makes the emphasis on all the old folklore about fairies kind of odd How many children of the last few decades grew up with their parents basically giving them lessons on how to outwit the fairies This wasn t my favourite short story, but it wasn t terrible It was just average I can t really feel much about it one way or the other.Quotable moment He walked out the door without a backwards glance, and I screamed into his pillows Every time I inhaled, I breathed in the smell of his hair, and I had to scream again to rid myself of it flag 5 likesLike see review Dec 13, 2018
