Melanism of the Sky
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful race of fairies called the Typica, who lived and prospered in the White Forest. Due to their coloring, they could easily evade their enemies by blending into their surroundings.
Another race of fairies that also inhabit the White Forest was the Carbonaria. Unlike the Typica, the Carbonaria were dark creatures that must hide in shadows. Day in and day out, they were forced to watch as the Typica fairies frolic in the sunlight without fear, which caused them to grow bitter and envious.
At first it was hard for the Carbonaria to track the Typica as they completely blend into the light-colored trees and lichens. However, as the days wore on, the Carbonaria realized that it became easier and easier to locate the Typica.
Outside the White Forest, dwell creatures known as men, who thrived on the substance they called innovations. They bent nature to satisfy their wants and needs, moving closer and closer to the White Forest. Where they tread, lichens died and trees darkened.
The Carbonaria noticed and said nothing. They quietly observed as the trees turned black and the Typica became easy prey for their mutual enemies.
If you know a lot about evolution theories. . .this story might sound very familiar. The context of this story originates from the Melanism of Peppered Moths. I personally feel this represents how good and evil interacts in the most subtle ways in real life. Though, I retold the story as a fairytale, I do feel that good and evil does exist in the real world as symbolism for the the right and wrong events that happen to our lives.
