The Village on the Wall Historian
I see that you are looking at the markings on my face. They are of my tribe and each design was given to me as my skills developed. I am a Master Historian which means that I am known as a master of the written word and the power it creates. One of the powers of the written word is enlightenment. Knowledge is not lost when written, as others can learn instead from the writings when that person is no longer available. This is another of the reasons that I have chosen this path, for as night turns to day, so too does ignorance turn to knowledge (remember - ignorance just means that you have not learned something yet - stupidity is the refusal to learn)...
Are you also a reader of books? As the Historian for the Village on the Wall, I have found that by reading any and all books that I can find, I discover that there is so much that I did not know. This seemed strange at first - I mean, one would think that someone who reads a lot of books would be smart, but I found that to be wise requires the ability to know when you do not know and to be willing to learn more all the time. I guess this might make me appear wise but actually I think it's because I like to read. I enjoy mostly Outie (human) Fairy Tales. The hard part is not leaving foot notes in the books explaining where they had things wrong. You would think they would research this stuff more...
Anyhow, history is my life as I view the past and do not predict the future. The past holds many of the answers for the future as there is a cause and effect that can be learned. History repeats itself for those that do not learn from the past. That is why I am the historian - to help others learn from the past. Well... that and maybe because I am the oldest living Fae in the Village on the Wall and have live through a lot of the local history. I was here when the Dragons still lived in the caves by the waters and before the first stone was laid for the Village. You could say that I am a bit of history myself.
I don't know about you, but I still like the feel of having a book in my hands. These new Outie devices may be handy and hold a lot of knowledge, but they do not replace the feel of a good book, the smoothness of the pages, or the texture of the cover as I discover something new on each page.
I am now going back to the history I am reading. Maybe it involves you or your ancestors. Either way, remember that knowledge is what will make both of our worlds better and allow us to understand each other.
