The World within 'FairMeadow':

To understand the premise of the film, one must first understanding the world which it exists within.

What is Fairmeadow Wells? 
Many, many, many years ago magic existed within the world we live in now, but only in Fairmeadow Wells.

It's a town that anything was possible.

Homes were grown for newlyweds by buildgardeners, the lake transformed those that swam in its waters to mermaid/men, temporarily of-course. The town consisted of fairies, pixies, wizards and timeline tea matrons. 

Neighbouring human settlements knew full well of Fairmeadow Wells. It was a place a joy, a place to trade with and a place to wonder at the marvels of magic. 

 

The town still exists today, however access to it was blocked by a disgruntled wizard who destroyed all knowledge of it in the outside world. It exists, outside our timeframe.
Nower days, centuries on there is only one way in. Via a tree safehouse accessible via a magic handle. Thought lost to the world, now rediscovered.




 

Core Characters:

Serena Cardinas - Human
The Goth Girl. Sardonic and dry, without being necessarily sarcastic. Street smart and world wise, yet nihilistic and self-deprecating. Loves broken or damaged things, and often wears black- with bursts of reds, greys and purples. Lesbian, but considers it the least interesting thing about her.

Sonya Cardinas - Human
The Choir Girl. Prim, pepper, and proper. Sonya strives for perfection whilst aiming to please. Constantly gets good grades, and sees a ‘B’ as an affront to her hard work. A goodie-two-shoes teacher’s pet, with book
smarts, and a flirtatious manner when she wants something- which is often. Often wears white, pastels, and pinks.

Fr. Abdi Okinanowe - Human
Junior Priest of St. Angelo’s, who grew up in Hertfordshire where he
was born to Nigerian parents. He joined the priesthood after graduating high school, and spent ten years at a Scottish monastery up in
the Scottish Highlands. Before moving to the city and finding a home in St. Angelo’s.

Fr. Wolf Lindeman - Human
Senior Priest. Around 55-65 years old. Became the head priest of St. Angelo’s when he was only 25, having spent his lifetime studying towards this position. Publicly he is calm, but privately he suffers
from extreme anxiety given the hefty weight of his responsibility guarding the ‘tether’.
 
Jockey – Soul
Serena’s first Soul friend. He’s a “Great Soul” that hasn’t been to earth since hislast vessel died on August 16th, 1977. Short and plump, with a cheerful disposition, and slight cockney-accent, he is joyous until you mention horses as one almost ended his time on earth with a forceful kick that narrowly missed his head. He still wonders if a connecting-kick

would have expelled him from [WAYFAIR].


Regatta – Soul
Cold, no-nonsense, but an awfully “Great Soul”. She was once Cleopatra, and more recently spent time on earth as Bea Arthur. She is the unofficial leader of their group, due to having the most experience on earth. Never partakes in activities (such as gambling), unless she needs something which she can’t otherwise get.


Milk – Soul
Calm, quiet and soft-spoken, Milk is a great listener to his/her friends, but often goes unheard or unconsidered. Recently returned from a sixty-year stint on earth where he/she saved many lives until the narrative came to a sad close.


Bruiser – Soul
One of the “Worst Souls”, but given the neutral setting of [WAYFAIR], he looks more imposing than he really is. Having been given

the responsibilities of Henry V’s favourite executioner, a general in the American civil war, as well as a Nazi doctor, Bruiser chooses

to associate with “Great Souls” to ease the burden of the narratives he helped to live-out. He secretly hopes that this learned-yet-acute

sense of empathy eventually damages his ‘inherited apathy’, rendering him broken, and therefore expelled.


Sprinkle – Soul
Camp, fun, and always excited. Sprinkle seems to get the group in more trouble than he’d like. Unable to sit still, and always talking

out-of-turn, Sprinkle constantly tests Regatta’s patience, whilst making Serena laugh.
