• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

In the future, our world is a very dark place. You see, the faerie world has always lived in conjunction with that of our own. However, several years ago, war broke out between the two species, and now ours is left in horrible disarray. Machines and other such devices have been destroyed, unable to work properly. On top of that, the plants of the world have be made into vicious obstacles which attack humans whenever possible.

Liza is a teenage girl who lives in a run-down farming village located in what remains of the Midwestern part of the United States. All her life she has been taught by her father that magic is evil and brings about death. This is embodied by the fact that her new born baby sister, who is shown of having signs of faerie powers, is taken away by her father to die on a hill side. To complicate matters, her mother runs away soon after. However, sometime after this incident, Liza discovers she herself has these powers in the form of seeing visions. Frightened of what harm she might bring about, and what the villagers might do to her, she flees into the forest with her cat, Tallow, and her friend, Matthew, as companions.

However, after being attacked by some malevolent trees, they are rescued by a woman with magic abilities named Karin. Though she takes them to safety in a well-meaning town, Liza soon discovers that there is much more to the story of the war between the humans and faeries.
