Ah yes, this is one of the more infamous lines from the book "After a time he fell asleep, and some unsteady fairies had to climb over him on their way home from an orgy." Now, what you have to understand is, in the era that the book was written, the word "orgy" generally referred to a large group of people drinking booze. So yeah! Not so infamous after all ^_- The more we know~ Anyway, drunk fairies were fun to draw ^_^

I also love how the next line totally characterizes Peter's relationship with fairies "Any of the other boys obstructing the fairy path at night they would have mischiefed, but they just tweaked Peter's nose and passed on." ^_^

Enjoy! ^_^

I would think the fairies do more then just drink booze. They're quite gay, and fun, after all. XD

@Onasaki: LOL wouldn't be surprising, but the book was kept pretty clean, sexiness-wise, and this word is often misinterpreted outside of the context of the era ^_^

I think that correct "translation" would be they were returning from party. Sure, there was booze on the party, but it was not JUST booze. In the same time, the rest is not stated openly, so it doesn't raise ratings.

Note: I love how much new things I find about Peter Pan here ... in most adaptations the other fairies are reduced to barely background roles.

@hkmaly: Well, it's not stated openly, but in that time period, the word did mean something different. However, as stated above, I wouldn't put anything past fairies ^___^

I'm so glad you're enjoying it! I hope to bring the fairies back in later chapters ^_^

Oh yeah, I remember that! One of the many things I so admire about Peter, the way he has with the faries and how they respect him and I still haven't fully figured out why. It's just because it's Peter, that's all.

And I enjoyed the drunken fairies very much! :P

Not so infamous after all? I mean, a large group of people drinking booze generally isn't congruent with people keeping their hands to themselves...or fairies, as we see here.
