Okay world, I need your help!
In my Magicsmith series, humans sometimes refer to the fae as fairies/faeries (though the fae never refer to themselves this way). The term is considered something of an ethnic or racial slur, but has been adopted by many humans through ignorance. My question is: How would an average human spell the word. Fairy, as is the common Disney spelling, or faerie because it is more closely connected to the fae root? Most importantly: As a reader, which would you like to see in my book?
