Fairy rings occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it.
So what happens after you capture the elf?
Is it like fake-fishing? Do you capture the elf, take a picture with it, and then throw it back in the mushroom circle?
Or do you, like, keep it and make it live in a tree and make you cookies?
But what if it’s not Keebler-sized? What if it’s Orlando Bloom-sized?
Can you even force Orlando Bloom to live in a tree and make you cookies?
