    Amen, brother! About time somebody said it. I’ve been slightly afraid of including mythological characters in my stories (not THAT afraid, because if people have a problem, they’re going to have a problem.) for this reason, but these character archetypes I believe are around for a reason… for our enjoyment and enrichment. So I’ll have my centaurs, fauns, dryads and hamadryads and write them for the glory of God.

    You make a great point! In my (as-yet unpublished) modern faerie stories, I try to highlight the fact that the Fae and all other supernatural beings are subject to God–not outside Him. If He is powerful enough to create humans, isn’t He powerful enough to create other sentient beings? This is my little way of reclaiming myths–or in my case, folktales. 🙂

      That’s the view I take of it in Albion Academy as well. If these creatures and beings exist, they must exist in subjection to God (or rebellion, as the fallen angels, but even they are subject to God in the end).

What do you think?
