So this is an interesting thing that the book talks a bit about, but the movies never really cover: yes, the boys can fly. They don't do it with quite the ease that Peter does, but they do fly. I'm sure that the play versions didn't have them fly because of the hassle, and the movies kinda stuck with it, but yes, everyone can fly on the island and no one "runs out" of flying power. They can get tired and thus be unable to fly as far, as we find out during the fight on Marooner's rock, but yes. They do fly every now and then ^_^

The only point they forget how to fly is in the very end of the book, where they have to be anchored to the beds so they don't float way when in the nursery.
So yes! The more you know~ :P And that's why I have one of the twins flying in that last panel ^_^

Enjoy!

Think about it - wouldn't it be totally weird if they could NOT fly? I mean, Peter lets some random kids fly, but not his boys?? That would be stupid, so it actually makes a lot of sense that they fly. Also, I think that they don't run out of flying power on the island is because there are so many fairies there that their fairy dust must be everywhere in the air. If you breath it constantly, it sure would give you power. I think.

:D And i just love how Peter commands the boys ^^ Oh, that cleverness of his!! :D

@snow crystal: I'm not sure if the fairy dust has much to do with it after the fact since Barrie has this whole thing about once you can fly, you are able to until you forget and once you forget, you can never fly again. But who really knows how it works, there are so many possible ways ^_^

hahah, yup! ^_^

@TriaElf9: Hmm, true. Would really be interesting if we could ask Barrie personally. Such a shame we can't anymore :/

@snow crystal: Tell me about it! I have a billion questions >_< It wouldn't surprise me if, when he has contradicting information, it's either a product of him just forgetting and writing a new thing, or that the story is like written with Peter's kid brain in mind ^_^

@TriaElf9: :D That wouldn't surprise me, either ^^ Do you know the movie "Finding Neverland"? It's about how he wrote "Peter Pan". Nice movie, but not quite so realistic, sadly. But there's this one scene, this single, short moment, that I absolutely love. After a foght with his wife, he opens the door to his room to go in there and write - and in the brief moment between opening and cosing the door, one can see light and bright colours come out of it, and hear birds singing behind it. I love that. It describes exactly how it feels to write such things - or read them, at that.

@snow crystal: I saw it a while back, but I don't remember it too well. Yeeeah, after reading his bio, I realized how much was changed for the movie, lol ^_^;;

@TriaElf9: Me too ;) But I love the movie, anyway - it's great even if it does not describe the reality the way it should. The movie holds so much magic in it, that I love.
