I just love making things do my bidding for entertainments sake. Hence I began to offer delightful chatty companions in my market. These fellows are now ready for their new Mistresses or lords and will be offered shortly.
As Fall approaches, as does the time when young newly weened Brownies leave their broodmares nest seeking out homes to inhabit and endear themselves to through hard work and long eye lashes.
Despite the continued request of my own house brownie, to "let the little buggers find their own way!" and "No don't feed them! They will never leave now!" I have live captured a small number of them to re-home into suitable families rather then allowing them to deal with the elements as the explore the world larder by larder until proper milk and bread is found to sustain them.
Perhaps, I am just growing soft in my graceful aging, as it does go against my principals to insure the continued survival of one species of Fae over another. However having noticed a decline in the number of Brownies in service to households over the years, I feel an intervention on my behalf is necessary to insure womanly tradition and good husbandry of this species continues on over the generations to follow my own.
As such, I will begin the process of housebreaking the little Brownie bites, and place them in the classes that I hold with the Lunar Brownies on manners and good house keeping.
It is a rare day when the image of a live brownie can be captured. They are in fact very camera shy.
However I was able to convince my house brownie to sit still long enough to capture this glimpse of him for my journal and musings.
I do plan to acquire several more of his species to
One of the things I always recommend to our newer members of the Society is to acquire for their studies and lab supplies at least 1 Mellis Mediocris

The Common Honey Faerie like house brownies and pond pixies can both be delightful to have on display as well as useful in the function of your home and pursuits. Wither you delight in having a bonded Faerie that is content to ride in your pocket, or you keep them to produce enticement musk for your baiting of enticement stations; they are a must.
Acquiring a common honey faerie can be as simple or as complex of an event as you wish to make it. As the most easy to domestic without fear of urbanization corrupting them , many a member has bred them and often sell or give them to newer members, or to those who's labs and gardens have been struck with a faerie endangering blight.
These Faeries have always been hand fed since their hatching and have no fear of humans. They bond quickly at a young age and must be trained from the beginning of your ownership. They can be attention demanding and always begging for sweets, so it is important to place within them from day one an understanding of how much time daily you will spend with them.
Many a young lady enchanted and excited over the novelty of owning a faerie make the mistake of fawning over their new acquisitions as one would a puppy or small mammal spending every minute they can with it and spoiling it with unneeded feedings. Later of course as they begin to pursue more complex species the novelity wears off, leaving the honey faerie ignored.
This can cause the Honey Faerie to produce poor quality of musk, destructive behaviorism and early death. So when obtaining a domestically bred Honey Faerie keep in mind how much time in the long run you plan to spend with your faerie. You should plan for at least 10 minutes a day of interaction and a little more or less on the rare event will not harm the relationship with your bonded faerie in the long run . Over all they are a forgiving specimen to keep.
If you go the route of capturing a wild Honey Faerie, fear not they also bond with humans, just not on the level of imprinting as their domesticated kin . In many ways, the capturing of a wild born Honey Faerie can be most awarding in the fact that it takes time, a small level of skill and most importantly patience.
