"Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed".

Fairy tales, ancient myths and legends...it’s the stuff of history, the color in what would otherwise be a dull and lifeless oral and written record of mankind’s life and times. Fables about monsters and epic heroes that are no more than fiction in the eyes of the general public...they’re entertainment for the innocent and unknowing masses.

These stories...historic myths from ancient cultures, the modern day cautionary flights of fancy known as urban legends...only those who have seen through the veil between this world and the one beneath our own know the truth behind these tales. They are neither fanciful nor fictional in nature, as a fairy tale is expected to be.

Rather, these stories are guidebooks to the world I live in...myself and those like me. The ancient tales of vampires and werewolves, the story of Pandora’s Box...even a typical campfire ghost story has its roots in the subculture of the supernatural. It’s out there, and it’s real...and it’s these supposedly fanciful stories that we at Sodalitas Quaerito collect and catalog with the utmost care.

We look for answers to questions that seemingly have none. We are the keepers of stories that are not ready to be heard...and I believe that is our most important job, because even in our circles there are myths and legends. Stories disproven, fairy tales that are said to be only that. Tracing those stories back to their origins, being certain that a certain evil does not exist to harm humanity...

That is our goal.

And if we had done our jobs better...if I had done my job better...Rory Gilmore would never have gotten hurt.
