The Queen of the Seelie court walks abroad in the spring and summer, silently treading the mossy forest floor with soft stepping hooves. She caresses each living thing she passes with her warm touch, bathing the forest in a gentle glow and whispering words of love to every flower and tree in her path. Part plant, part animal, part humanoid, she only discards her glamour for those who are unafraid of the truth she embodies: we are all one, living, breathing, drinking in the light of the sun and the moon, struggling to take root and survive and maybe even bloom for a season. And when the world grows cold, and the leaves begin to shiver and turn, she fades into the hardening earth and dreams of cool shadowed forests and warm caressing breezes until the first hint of spring.
