The weather in London was dreary and cool. Beyond the veil that separated the realms the afternoon in the Seelie lands was fair. Not too warm, but not unfavorable, either, it was comfortable as Willy and Winter made their way through the stonelands where great granite pillars stood, jutting up out of the plain. Amongst the pillars grew June-thorn bushes. It was the end of the fruting season and much of the sweets had either been eaten by others or had dried on the vine. Some were servicable, though- one just needed to take the time to look.

"I do wish the ingredients for your potion were a bit easier to come by, my friend," Willy said as he gently pushed some brambles aside to peek beneath the leaves.

"You are very kind to help me, Willy Silver," Winter chirped, perching himself on the fae's shoulder as he gathered a ripe fruit.

"Perhaps we can stop by the merchant in the forest and buy one of his boxes. The kind that freezes things in time. Then we can store plenty and not come back so often."

"And then we shall have fruit and cream," Winter said, his voice bright and full of cheer. "I like when we spend a day together Willy. You are my dearest friend," he smiled, tugging lightly on the fae's hair.

If he had been larger, he would have embraced the fae. As it was, however, the pixie simply stood on Willy's shoulder and kissed the fae's cheek.

"You are the kind one, Fae Willy."

"Willy," Winter said as he took off and bean to fly at the fae's side. "What do you know of mortal doctors?" he asked curiously.

"I met one- But he doesn't use medicine, he heals with words. He fixes minds," Winter whispered.

"Oh," Winter said, wilting a little.

"A little," Winter confessed, fluttering at Willy's side. "Not that I'm certain he could... Or that it's really broken."

Winter nodded a little, then went a bit quiet as he spoke again.

"Do you think the things Aspid did to me have ruined me forever, Willy?"

Winter lit up a little, then nodded. "That's true," he chirped, landing on Willy again and smiling.

"I do like cakes," Winter replied, his wings fluttering as he began to whistle.

The sound of the cheerful pixie drew the attention of various creatures. All fairly harmless as they peeked out of bushes and trees to see what the commotion was all about.

It had been so long since Winter had seen another of his kind, and he took off from Willy's shoulder so he could fly just a little closer to her. Her wings were lovely, less like wings and more like leaves- They reminded him of his mother's.

"No. Fae Willy is my keeper, but I am not his pet," Winter said, puffing up proudly. "I am Winter Wisp, who are you?" he asked curiously.

Winter looked startled by the touch, and he froze up for a moment, nearly falling right out of the air.

His heart fluttered nervously-- but it soon passed, and he smiled softly. "Thank you. ...Toadstool is an odd name, you're far more charming than a toadstool- Well, unless you're named for the ones that grow in wonderland. They are lovely."

"I- I just haven't seen anyone of my own kind for a long time," Winter admitted, looking nervous when Willy moved away.

He didn't dare tell her why. He may not have seen a pixie in a long time, but he knew well enough that most pixies didn't like to be near the tainted or the damaged- Or worse, the sort that seemed to carry bad luck in their pocket.

"I don't think it's dangerous," Winter said. "All the mortals I have met there are nice, and they sell things like cream with chocolate in it- And coffee too. Coffee is very good," he said, happy to chat, but growing more and more nervous the further away Willy got.

"I should go, Fae Willy is helping me gather fruit. I shouldn't leave him to do so alone..."

Winter hesitated, then took her hands in his. "It was a pleasure to meet you, Toadstool. If you ever wish to visit the mortal world, I would be happy to guide you."

"She was nice- But... Willy, pixies don't often invite outcasts to join their villages. Especially not ones like me. ...Cursed ones. ...Tainted ones," he whispered, landing on the fae's shoulder and leaning lightly against him.

"It is," Winter aid softly. "You are kind to share it with me, Willy. I would be homeless and alone, if not for you, my brother."

Winter laughed and smiled, holding Willy's fingers, then climbing into his palm.

"What shall we do now, Willy? Should we eat?" he asked,

"Wherever you would like, fae Willy, I don't mind. So long as there is cream and sweets, I am happy," Winter chirped.

"I wish I could pay my share. Perhaps there is something I can do for you to pay for my meal," Winter offered.

"You are so kind, Willy. A true prince, by more than just title," Winter cooed.
