Fabulous Creatures

Should all fabulous creatures described in the old tales exist?

Professor Greenbloom said: "I've discussed rare minerals with dwarves,the flavour of tree bark with trolls, immortality with fairies, and enchantment with a fiery salamander. Dragons, the winged horse Pagasus. "

Trolls have beige-skin, wear a variety of clothing styles and have super big hair!

Smurfs have blue-skin and wear white hats and pants.

One fabulous creature attracts another. They sense each other's presence. Sometimes their scalps prickle, sometimes their scales itch. When the silver dragon rested on the mountain, four dwarves felt their scalps itching, and they found Firedrake.

The basilisk said, the dragon disturbed its dark dreams and woke up.

Dragons live entirely on moonlight, their strength waxes and wanes with the moon itself.

To get rid of elves by alphabetical order spell:
"Away, abominable airy apparitions! Begone, beastly blighted banshees! Cease chasing, colorful creatures! Dodge, dire dreadful demons! Escape, evil eager elves! Flee, feeble fairy flutterers! Go, ghastly greedy girolles! Horrible, hated, heinous horns-of-plenty!"

To catch an elf, you mix a little milk, two spoonfuls of honey and some rose petals in a bowl, and then you leave it outside on a warm night when the moon's full. One of these stupid creatures will come flying along to lap up your honey-sweet, rose-perfumed milk. Simply drop a cobweb over the bowl and there you are - hey presto!

The language of fabulous creatures can be understood at once by any other living creature, man or beast.

Panic or panick

There is only one spelling for panic; the verb is inflected 'panic, panics, panicked, and panicking’. The form panick is used for progressive tense, past tense and past participle. We don't write panick today, though English speakers from a few hundred years ago might have (in the same way they might have written musick).

When the alternate spelling “panick” is used for the past participle: "I panicked last night at the disco." When it’s use for progressive tense: “Invariably, when markets are panicking, they sell the stocks quickly.”

It's the rule for root words ending in "c" is that you have to add “k”, so the spelling is related with the pronunciation. If we don't add the <k>, it looks as if the <c> has to be pronounced /s/. If the "k" was not there, “panicing” would look like the word which is supposed to be pronounced as if it is ended in "sing," while “paniced” would be pronounced like “panised”.
