Fairy rings occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it. They are soooooo beautiful!
fairy rings are usually caused by decaying organic matter, generally a tree stump. many types of fungi have symbiotic relationships with tree roots and mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of such fungus. So if a huge old tree was cut down, you’ll often find fairy rings. they can last for years and years as the earth reabsorbs all the nutrients left behind by the beautiful tree.
sorry, didn’t mean to crush dreams - but i have a degree in horticulture and i was really excited when i first learned this.
maybe fairies and fungi are joining together to mourn the loss of the tree
NO BUT FINDING OUT ABOUT WHY FAIRY RINGS EXIST IS ALSO REALLY COOL.
From a writer’s perspective, it’s even more interesting to find out why they exist on a horticultural level, because it opens up a whole realm of fictional possibilities. Science doesn’t have to invalidate mythology or fiction, no more than mythology or fiction invalidates science.
For example, doesn’t that just essentially make this a tree grave? And if folklore has taught us anything, it’s that “fairies” and other spirits usually occupy trees, or have them as their life force. And that’s to say nothing of the folklore of trees being spirits in and of themselves, or kitsunes that live in tree hollows, or dryads, etc., etc.. So, if it’s disrespectful or feels like a slight to step on human graves, wouldn’t that logic transfer to stepping inside the Fairy Circle, AKA, the tree’s grave? It’s essentially giving more fuel to the story, not detracting from it, in my humble opinion!Science doesn’t have to invalidate mythology or fiction, no more than mythology or fiction invalidates science.
Adding to the discussion, science and mythology function in different spaces. Science can bring explanations to things happening in the real world while mythology, monsters, fantasy creatures bring explanation to the cultural world. They don’t have a physical body but have a cultural body. Myths are consensually held to provide some kind of normative framework that is socially and culturally significant and this significance has to do with social and cultural acceptance and not scientific truth. Resistance to that critique is a sign that such myth is still in operation.
Myths, monsters, fantasy creatures live in the realm of images which can be conveyed through fiction, art, music, performance, movies, etc. The myth, monster, creature, etc. must draw reference from previous images that are communal/long lasting ( “sacred” ) but those images must be recognizable. We know a vampire when we see one or read one because there are certain characteristics that are associated with a vampire.
Mths, monsters, fantasy creatures, etc convey political/moral values, provide systems of interpretation, individual experience within a universal perspective, interpretation of supernatural entities as well as natural order, and proved materials for secondary elaboration. They are a cultural body and are a text to be read. They are a cultural body meaning they don’t exist in the physical realm. They are a manifestation of society and culture.
