When Tinker Bell lost her Arrival Day hammer and realized she couldn't do her talent without it, that got the Never Fairy thinking: “My first hammer is precious to me, but how can I be the best tinker that I can be if losing it creates a handy cap? No, no, that just won't do.”

Tinker Bell decided that honing her skills would be a good place to start. But how? What would be the best way?

“Dewey might know,” Periwinkle told Tink, when her sister explained the situation.

Tinker Bell snapped her fingers. “Right! He knows just about everything!”

And it just so happened that Dewey knew of an ancient place where Never Fairies would go to study various talents, long before fairies were born with a natural talent. The story was so old that no fairy or sparrowman believed it ever existed – for it resided a hundred years or more ago, before Never Neverland came to be. On the Mainland.

Tinker Bell felt a challenge in the air and grabbed hold of it, studying every known book that mentioned the 'Faerie Academy'. With her friends' help, they hopped aboard Tink's cotton ball balloon with packed bags and headed towards an island called Ireland.

Among the greenery, sitting just off the shore, they came upon a ruined human castle, clearly abandoned. Well...maybe not exactly. As soon as the pixie dust-powered balloon landed, tall fairies and sparrowmen, such as the Ministers of the Seasons, stepped out and greeted Tink and friends – welcoming them to Faerie Academy!

Tinker Bell could hardly believe it; but she knew that not only would she learn more about her own talent, she'd also learn the true secret of all fairies and how the birth of Never Neverland prompted the Great Fairy Migration...

***


Each fairy – Fawn, Tinker Bell, Iridessa, Rosetta, Vidia, Silvermist, and Zarina – got their own dorm to sleep and study in. It was Christmastide on the Mainland and the Deans of the academy had decorated the castle for the holiday in anticipation for the arrival of the Winter Fairies. Tinker Bell admired her Christmas tree she made of wire and decorated with gears and other Lost Things. She got a slip of leaf paper out of her dorm's desk to write a letter to Periwinkle, inviting her to come to Faerie Academy.

Silvermist knocked. “It's me!”

“Come in, Sil.”

“Hey, Tink. What'cha doin'?”

“Writing to Peri. Wouldn't it be flitterific if we learned to do each others' talents? I'm telling her where Faerie Academy is.”

“Ooh, I wonder if I can learn to be a Light talent and help Iridessa make rainbows.” Silvermist laid a tray down of an acorn teapot and chestnut cups. “Well, I mean, I already help her make rainbows, but if I could bend light like 'dessa, then I could make even more rainbows for the rainy seasons!
“Want some tea? It's cranberry-flavored.”

As the two enjoyed their hot tea, a flurry of soft snow began to fall outside Tinker Bell's window

Nice work, Sapphira! I was curious as to how the events of the Faerie Academy would have played out, and I'm really excited to read more!

Tinker Bell stood outside the Engineer's Hall, the building was decorated with different sizes of gears and...were those giant telescopes flanking the doorway?

“So Tinker fairies are called 'engineers' here?” She stepped inside, which was a cluttered mess of whirling gadgets and broken inventions.

“Hello! I'm Locket! You?” a bouncy fairy with brown curls flew over to Tinker Bell and extended her arm for her to shake.

“Uh...” Never Fairies didn't shake hands. “Fly with you, Locket. I'm Tinker Bell, but my friends call me Tink. Are you a student here?”

“Sure am! Come, sit by me, class will be starting soon.”

Tink tilted her head. “It will? But it's just you and myself.”

“Meh, fairies don't care much for this sort of thing: making inventions from metal. Although, most Mainland Fairies are highly allergic to iron, so I guess it makes sense.”

“Allergic?” Tinker Bell couldn't believe it. “Are you a Mainland Fairy? And...I thought all fairies and sparrowmen come from Neverland.”

Locket shook her head. “Most of us are drawn to Neverland, but just as many are born on the Mainland, such as myself. We come here to learn a trade, then join a guild of that trade in order to help humans.”

“Really? Like, how exactly? Never Fairies in Pixie Hollow bring about the seasons, while other talents – er, trades – help in other ways to keep the seasons in check; like weaving baskets to carry seeds for spring.”

“Mainland Fairies work more in secret. Like if a human is having a difficult time growing crops, we come along to give a little aid.” Locket got a notebook out and opened it to a blank page. Tinker Bell thought she saw a few fantastic inventions filling the other pages. “Tailoring fairies used to be the highest demanding fairy trade in the human world, making shoes while the people slept.”

Tinker Bell leaned back in her chair. “Amazing, I never knew anything like that existed.”

A tall sparrowman entered the stage, he looked like the professor type: graying hair, a handlebar mustache, and a monocle. “Good day, Locket. And I see I have a new student. Tinker Bell, is it?”

“Um, yes. But how do you know my name?”

“Not important. I am your Engineer's teacher, Professor Boltz. Let class start.”

To Be Continued...

Thanks, Daisy, I hope I don't disappoint; I'm planning an awesome story with lots of little twists.

(To note, Tinker Bell lost her Arrival Day hammer in the story "Tink in a Fairy Fix" when she suddenly loses her ability to fix things until she gets it back.)

Water Talent Light Talent Tinker Talent
There were parts of Faerie Academy where the snow never fell, such as the courtyard Tink and friends sat in.

“...It was flitterific!” Zarina told everyone. “I never knew there was a fairy talent where you make potions all day, it was just like my Dust Alchemy class in Pixie Hollow. Apparently it's one of the more popular trades for Mainland Fairies to learn. If I had known...”

“What? What would you have done?” Iridessa asked. “Left Neverland completely?”

Silvermist handed out hot tea, there was no snow but it was cold outside. “You sound upset, 'dessa.”

“Yeah! What has your wings in a bunch?” Fawn said.

“Doesn't she always sound that way?” commented Vidia about Iridessa. “Grumpy?”

“No, petunia, I think 'grumpy' is normally your thing,” Rosetta said, daintily eating a poppy puff roll – they were almost as good as the ones Dulcie was famous for.

Vidia shrugged, whether she accepted that or not was anyone's guess.

Iridessa snorted. “It's just like when Tink wanted to trade her talent for one of ours. Remember? Fairies are born with a special talent, you can't just go around learning a bunch of other talents just because. It's...it's not natural. It's wrong.”

“But, Iridessa,” Tinker Bell said “Locket told me that Mainland Fairies aren't born with a talent.”

Another snort from Iridessa. “I don't believe it. We're all born with an inner talent, though...I suppose...sometimes that needs a nudge.”

Zarina playfully pushed the Light fairy. “Like me, right? I was born a Dust talent, but that wasn't my true calling.”

Iridessa relented a little – then snapped when Fawn airily remarked: “It's just for fun, I had a blast being a Light talent when Zarina switched our abilities.”

“For us, who already know our talent, it might be fun, but what about the ones who come here who don't?” Iridessa asked. “What if...w-what if Tinker Bell was born on the Mainland – we all know she's a brilliant Tinker talent – but when she Arrived she doubted herself. What if she came to Faerie Academy and tried to become a, I don't know, a Baking talent! What if she never discovered how talented a Tinkerer she was and continued on as a Baker talent? What if Rosetta never became a Garden fairy and instead became a Cleaning fairy?” Rosetta made a face. “Or-or Vidia became a Mining talent and never flew ever?”

Vidia shivered and looked ill at the thought: a Fast-Flyer who never learned to fly, but instead mined jewels in a cramped tunnel? Brr~

“Gosh, I guess it does sound pretty serious,” Silvermist said.

“Exactly!” Iridessa crossed her arms and nodded. “What if Mainland Fairies are born with a natural talent – but just don't know it? And then they spend the rest of their lives doing something they were never meant to do?”

Tinker Bell sighed. “You make a good point, 'dessa. But you forget to see that many of the fairies and sparrowmen that come to Faerie Academy eventually go to a talent trade that they are interested in. And they can try as many as they like until they find the single one they love the most. That's their inner talent shining through and guiding them. Don't you think?”

Iridessa had to admit it sounded true.

There was a blast of horns and a ring of bells in the distance.

“What's all that noise for?” Rosetta covered her ears.

Fawn flew above the courtyard, who was then spun around in place by Vidia who sped by. “It's the Frost Fairies!” Vidia reported. “They're here!”
