The Fairyland series by Catherynne M. Valente.
Focusing on September.
A dark hued print that would speak of the sea and the dark things she hasn't yet met who live in it, of the world under fairyland where Halloween lives, of purple haired girls and the mysteries their eyes speak.
These just yell in high tones "September" to me, and I am not one to ignore high toned yelling, especially when I am the one doing it.
In her house would be things like this, wall hangings or bags or cloths with pictures of the creatures she longs to stay with, the ones she is so very fond of and wants to remember always.
The kind of dreamy thing she would see in Fairyland and remember, see and want to recreate at some point, to make sure she didn't forget.
I can imagine September as a young woman going to a fancy party, a fairy one or a human one, and thinking of Ell and wearing something like this, if she couldn't take him along with her.
For dancing with wyverns and around fairy circles and spending the night under the full, dreamy moon.
The first thing I thought of, practically, and this is just what I imagined. A soft, thick, orange scarf for a girl who loves orange.
It's big and showy in it's way, but also delicate and small and I can imagine September falling completely in love with the detail and the flowers and wearing it always.
A pumpkin souffle scented orange candle? From Hagrid's pumpkin patch? I think September would be rightly thrilled by the very prospect.
Orange, Orange, Orange. Like an autumnal pumpkin festival.
Witches around a table celebrating some deviousness? That is completely September, to me.
This is so Fairyland and September to me. It's kind of like the house is Fairyland and the creature is everything else, everything September hasn't found out yet.
