This shall be interesting. Mphtheatregirl girl asked me to do this interview. I will do what she asks.
What is your name: Aires
What is your age: In my 30s
What is your craft: Construction
When did you discover your craft: 4; at this age, I started out by making simple things, not any big construction job.
When did you land the job of head carpenter: I think I was around the age of 20. Our head carpenter was about to retire so it was time to find a new one. I was already making bigger crafts. From 8-10, I built toy cars and stuff like that. Starting at 15, I built things like bridges for where we lived: no longer toys for the young Fairy Frogs. I do not remember why they choose me.
Why did they choose you as leader: As far as I know, my father was the leader before me, so I was next in line. I was the oldest of all my siblings so I ended up being the leader. I ended up being a confident leader.
About your nephew, why do you have to use him at times for guidance: I do sometimes doubt themselves at times. He does tell me things will be okay at times. When Sparkle tells me that we will befriend the toads, I was nervous. I never wanted my Fairy Frogs to befriend the Toads- even though Sparkle shined a new light on them. Darcy is my nephew- he is my sister’s son.
Why did you put that Graysloup rule up: I put that rule up to protect the Fairy Frogs. I was worried about Sparkle. I was aware of how invested she was in her drawing. She easily could break the rule. In addition to the rule, I decided to move them further away from Graysloup- that is why we moved the place that soon would become Fairy Creek.
How do the Fairy Frogs discover their natural talent: I figure it out from the ages 3-5. They hang out with the older Fairy Frog- as in the ones who are about 10-18. The ones who are around that age teach them about their art talent. They 3-5 year olds can tell if they are naturally talent in their area or not. In one area, singing, if they are naturally talented in that area, they sometimes have to experiment with dancing and then performing- to see if they naturally gifted in performing. After figuring out their natural talent, they start experimenting in their gift. At the ages of 8-10, they start learning more and more. It was at the age of 11-18, they get into so much more detail about their craft. It was interesting how Sparkle got into all of us so much earlier: I mean she discovered her talent at age 3: she experimented from 4-5: at age 6, she talented playing around from that age 6-8, which is what the 8-10 are supposed are to do. Then she had the small skill level that the 13-18 had- that is very rare for a Fairy Frog. The Fairy Frogs do not always end with up with their parent’s artistic abilities.
