Fae blood
So, I've come across a number of people who believe themselves to have fae blood in them. I don't doubt this, and in fact, I've had a sneaking suspicion for a long while now that I have some fae ancestors, as well. I can't prove it, and don't even know what kind of fae might be some kind of ancestor of mine. The feeling is strong, however.

I don't even know how to go about researching this. Thoughts? Advice?

Re: Fae blood
I'm sorry, but I really don't know anything about fae blood, though I think you can do some research with changelings? Gah, I wish I could help more! <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarrassed" /><!-- s:oops: -->

Re: Fae blood
I have recently been curious of the same thing, I know most of my father's family were from other countries, so I can't trace most of his family, and only one of the is living (my aunt). As for mum, things like clairvoyance and things involving energy sensing seems to run in her family. (Heck I always figured I myself am a changeling, but how do you really prove it?) I will have to look into the fae bloodline thing.

Re: Fae blood
It very much seems to be the case that Angels seem to run it more frequently. Sahra has fae blood, you posit that you might, I have a family line that is reputed to be fae-touched from way back...

We're clearly special <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

And should it be that we shall never meet again,
Know that I will always keep you in my heart,
And I will search for you in that time beyond time
Until we do meet again, and you will know
That love and family are the miracles of the world.

Re: Fae blood
Yeah, I've noticed a lot of angels who believe they're hereditary fae. Sahra, Nic, me, Veritas...I think Glass from OKA has selkie blood, too. There's probably some more that I can't remember.


I'd suggest researching where your family's from, Ashaiel, and then researching the types of fae common to that area and seeing if anything clicks.

Re: Fae blood
A Changeling refers to a Fae that has been put in place of a human child. Said Fae has taken on the form of that human child, other Fae have whisked the human child away to Faerie, and the Changling has moved in to take the place of the human child. Getting your child back can be tricky since many times you have to get the Changling to essentially admit that they are a Changeling in an effort to get the Fae to free your child.

As for people with Fae Blood that would mean that some where in your ancestory you have a Fae relative. That means either a Fae has either impregnated a human woman or a Fae woman has given birth to a child that is half Fae half human. Powers and abilities as well as some physical attributes can vary based on the powers of the Fae in the ancestory and how the genes have formed. Much like passing on eye color with humans.

It is very doubtful that one would be able to pin point this in Ancestory. Although, places to look would be for a parent that left their family behind without warning or note never to return or be heard from again or a child left on a parent's doorstep from a one night stand. Then again some Fae choose to "grow old and die" with their loved one only to return to Faerie after.

Lady Merencara has spoken.
Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.

That's funny, because my grandparents picked up and left their home countries to come to America, leaving everyone else. And since them, most of my mother's family has taken off and disappeared at random, and the living ones haven't been seen or heard from in like...30-40 years. I don't even know of anyone on my father's side, most are either gone or dead. Only one person (that I know of that is) on his side is left that I have ever had contact with, and she is a freaky-odd woman. Lol. Darn all these mysterious family members.

I had a similar situation, oddly enough, though on the other side of the family than that which might be fae. Every single person in my mother's family either died early or disappeared. Generations almost never overlapped. The one great-aunt that was still alive, and who I met once when I was much younger, always seemed strange to me, as well (I assume she's dead now).

And should it be that we shall never meet again,
Know that I will always keep you in my heart,
And I will search for you in that time beyond time

Re: Fae blood
My maternal family, the one I suspect to have fae blood in there somewhere, has all sorts of great longevity genes. My great-grandmother on my grandfather's side lived to be a hundred years old; my great-grandmother on my grandmother's side was nearly a hundred and one when she died. Meanwhile, my grandparents, mother, and uncle all look to be ten years younger than they actually are. Strangely, until we hit our early twenties, we're always mistaken for older ages! Hardly any disease, either, unless you count my suspicions that my mother and grandmother are mentally ill to some degree . . . I've got uncannily good genetics, it seems.

My great-great-grandmother -- can't remember whose grandmother she was, but I think she was my grandmother's -- came to America from Scotland, so I've been looking into Scottish fae. I'm feeling a real draw towards selkies, but I'll continue to look until something clicks.

You all have been so helpful. Thank you so much! But don't stop discussion here, please -- I'm dying to know about the rest of you.

Re: Fae blood
Look into Irish beliefs about fae ancestors. I know there's plenty of folklore about entire Irish clans and families being descended at some point from fae - specificially (I think) the Tuatha de Danaan. Scottish folklore and Welsh might also have similar beliefs, but I know for certain that even today, there are native Irish who believe they have fae ancestry.
