Tooth Fairies by Saccstry Tooth Fairies by Saccstry
My entry for the MAMA scared stiff contest…
Many people would probably not think tooth fairies are scary at all..they are pretty little things who take a child’s lost tooth from under their pillow and leave some money. But…tooth fairies love teeth right? So why would they fly all that way for one measly tooth when there’s a whole mouthful right there for the taking?
The magic dust particles keep the child half asleep so she can’t scream for help. The pink tooth fairy is the supervisor; she makes sure the others perform their jobs in a timely manner. The blue fairy is the teeth extractor; she digs the teeth out with her bare hands. And the blonde fairy is the teeth transporter; she must clean the teeth of blood and fly them back to base. She’s a little worried right now because she brought a bag that’s too small and there seems to be no room for this child’s teeth among the others..

We confront fear to defeat it.

Or else we'll be poisoned by it into paralysis ....

This is funny cause I almost always woke up with blood on my pillow for some reason as a child.

What do they do with the teeth? eat them? build stuff out of them?

Holy crapola, I've never thought of it that way, but now that you mention it, it makes a disturbing amount of sense  :HORROR: 

The little girl's face is excellent in this, really stands out. Those tooth faeries are scary, man.

To be honest, I'm rather surprised at this, since my family's a bit different that most concerning lost baby teeth.

You see, we don't leave 'em under pillows and wait for the Tooth Fairy (or Faeries, I always personally think, since there's no way you'd ever get so many little kid teeth without TONS of help if you're gonna keep up with the whole world's constant tooth loss) to come take them in exchange for money. 

Instead, we each have our own little wooden jars to keep them in as they fall out. They're airtight and hidden far away from our beds. Part of this is for practicality, since "milk" teeth are usually pretty small and can easily get lost while you sleep, since kids often move around at least once while they sleep at night. No sense in putting 'em under a pillow only to get them lost and never get your payment, then, eh? 

But I always found it a bit odd to give up your teeth to an unknown entity in exchange for money. I read a LOT of mythology and mystical creatures books as a kid (yes, even the ones that show the original creepy European and Asian mythology, complete with everything that might even think of trying to eat you in creepy little pictures), and from what I could figure out, it never ends well giving up bits of yourself to a smart nonhuman being, even if it had no powers. ESPECIALLY something sold and slow to decay, like bones or lost teeth. Usually, it just ends up with you cursed, dead, WORSE than dead, enslaved, kept as a dumb pet, or....well, WORSE things. Ugh. :scared: 

So yeah, I hid my teeth instead. Whenever I lost one, I'd shove it as far INTO my pillowcase as I could, to the point where I could feel the imprint if I poked it, and shoved the pillow sideways across the "head" part of my bottom bed (growing up, my "milk teeth" days had me sleeping in a bunk bed) so that the end of the pillow could be squished against the headboard and I could fold the pillow shut and sleep over it. That way, I thought the only way the fae might find the tooth (which I wrapped in a sock for good measure, until my mom found out) was to crawl into the pillow, and if that happened, I'd end up rolling over them in my sleep and squishing them.

Yeah. Granted, it was a dumb plan, but I was a silly kid. Eventually, I got my own jar so that if the tooth fairy "forgot" to collect it, I could store it. I still have them all.

I'm fairly sure I've already commented on this but I just watched this video and it sort of reminded me of it XDDD…


On one hand it's sorta creepy, but on the other it's just too adorable. In different ways, of course, but.
