When you say you don’t believe in fairies, a fairy dies. Then you have to clap your hands to bring them back to life.
If you don’t clap your hands fast enough, well, it becomes the business of Mr. H. D. Thistle of 167 Oakshot Row.
You blow on the knocker, knock three times, turn your back to the door.
The world shifts upside down so you can enter.
Once inside, you can view caskets made from woven willow, or you can buy an urn that encourages butterflies to take the remains of your loved one to the other realm, or if you’re feeling fancy, you can have your loved one pressed into a rune gem so that their magic will stay with you forever.
Today, I want none of those options.
Today, I’m here to interrogate the man who is mortician to the fairies.
CW: Illness -- The Mortician of Avalon was completed in November 2019, but it includes a pandemic as a plot device in the third act (starting from episode 79, Outbreak, until episode 104 , The Last Words On Earth). Content warnings will be included in the titles of the episodes. Thank you for your understanding!
