    Welcome to DISENCHANTED.

    Disenchanted is about the place where magic goes to die.

    Listen: I’m not going to lie to you. There are faeries in it. Actual one-inch-tall faeries with pretty wings, pale skin, a pathological obsession with knotting human hair, an addict’s approach to teeth and all the rest of that floaty pseudo-Victoriana pre-Cottingley arsewater. But don’t panic. What we’ve got here are non-glittery, non-wanky, non-wish-granting faeries. What we’ve got here are substance-abusing, bar-brawling, civil-rights-demanding, murder-committing faeries. The good kind. The old kind. What we’ve got here is a miniature city made of scavenged soda cans, cereal boxes, dirty syringes and condoms. A city hidden beneath the streets of London. What we’ve got here are pixies, brownies, kobolds, leprechauns, boggarts, goblins and all the rest of the twee “Little People” of yesteryear who, despite being forgotten by mankind, have been dragged along by time and trend into the unsentimental Urban Century.

    Just like the rest of us.

    Disenchanted’s the story of Vermintown: a metropolis built in an abandoned tube station. It’s a city of a million minuscule souls. A city of a dozen races, a dozen different glamours and magics and mentalities. A city of endless grudges, countless addictions, impenetrable inter-community hostilities, petty crimes, major crimes, gang wars, police brutalities, old traditions, new traditions. It’s a city where superstition and sleaze collide. With faeries.

    Since the first post has answered my "What is Disenchanted?" question, anyone may feel free to delete said question, which is the only other thread and post in this category. BTW, it looks pretty awesome and I'll certainly pick it up.

    Yay!

    Also, this thread is invisible when I'm not signed in, and right at the top of the page when I am. I'm being bad at work so really shouldn't be posting, but sometimes it's worth breaking a rule or two. :)

    -edit- Oh, I get it! The entire Disenchanted category is only visible if you're logged in.

    Fairies terrify me. I'll read it, but I'll do so with a salt shaker in a shoulder holster.

    Now I don't feel so bad about liking that MAAKIES comic strip about using fairies for fishing lures.
