"Bridge"  Fairy and Fantasy Watercolor by Ann Gates Fiser

Tolbert Troll was just like all other trolls, eating the vast majority of people wishing to cross his bridge (even if they paid the requisite cache of gold coins) until one day a young man named Tom Twopants came along. Tom had no money but did have a very a strong desire to live and offered the troll the only thing he had of value, which was an to teach Tolbert to play the card game bridge. 

Trolls aren't known for being brilliant and though Tolbert was smarter than most it took him a long time to learn. He had been planning to eat Tom, in spite of the deal they'd made but after a while he became quite fond of Tom and Tolbert found that he no longer cared to eat his new friend. When the time came he bid Tom a very fond goodbye and made him promise to visit often, which Tom faithfully did (always being sure to bring a sheep or a chicken with him just in case). 

And as for Tolbert and the game of bridge, he loved it much, much more than collecting gold or eating people. The new price of crossing became a game of bridge. The word got around and everyone knew that if they wished to travel over the bridge they needed to bring two others with them so that Tolbert would get his game of bridge. After awhile Tolbert became so popular with travelers that he became something of a tourist attraction with lines of people waiting for the thrill of playing cards with an actual troll. His whole disposition became actually quite sunny. 

And the moral of this story is.... find something you love doing and everything will work out for the good of all.

“Birds of a Feather~ The Elves Tale” Graphite 9″ x 12″

In the Age of steam, man discovered how to harness the energy of heated water and began to invent many marvelous and some not so marvelous contraptions that allowed them to do things only dreamed of in the past.  The elves, ever watchful of the goings on of mankind, took notice. Some of them who had long been envious of the fairy race’s ability to fly, saw an opportunity to finally join their cousins in the air.  They began a mad dash to see who would be the first to build workable wings.  And really, “workable” was the key word because many elves perished dreadfully, failing and falling after leaping from the highest trees only to have their flimsy, fluttering wings tear and finally collapse.

After a short time they realized they needed a stronger, more durable material to use in the construction of the wings that would grant them the freedom of flight.  And that is where they began to follow the folly of mankind, beginning the slaughter of field mice and other small creatures to obtain their skins for making durable leather wings.  In doing so, they were finally able to achieve their eons old dream of soaring through the skies, but at what cost to their souls?  The elves had always been the guardians of nature.  What now?  What else would they be willing to destroy next in their selfish pursuit of unnatural desires?

This is brilliant! These are the tip of a vast iceberg waiting to sink the ship of learning this silly language. 
The rules of English make about as much sense as Imperial weights and measures.
