"Of Shades of Grey" by miu1109
Shade is born from the malicious darkness of Neopia, her appearance typical of any Dark Faeries. Just like any Dark Faeries, her first years are accompanied by another Dark mentor, who would teach her the duties and responsibilities of a Dark. “We’re different from the other elements,” her mentor stated gruffly as she begins her first lesson, “we don’t have time to waste on trivial things unlike them, and we don’t belong under the sun. Know that, and remember that, young Darkling.” Shade nods, absorbing every word like a sponge. But she never really does comprehend the words until she has experienced it herself, because even though Dark Faeries are just another element along with the other Faeries, the treatment towards them is evidently very different. (“Hey, isn’t that a Faer—” “Shh, she’ll hear you! My mother’s told me, approach any Faerie but the Darks! They’re dangerous!” “But, we’ve been lost for so many hours! I’m tired and scared!” “Shush! Anything would be better than a Dark Faerie! Who knows? Maybe a Light Faerie would be nearby?”) They are merely minor stings, a prickling in her heart that Shade learns to endure. We don’t belong under the sun, she recalls, and follows after her mentor for their night patrols.
