We use Faery to mean the realm of the fae and all beings who might live there. The Faery Court Masquerade Ball is a chance to enjoy an immersive night visiting the Faery Queen's court while raising money for a good cause. There are many spellings: Faery Faerie Fae Fairy Fairie
Here is a wonderful, informative excerpt from the Silver Elves:
Fae tends to be a superset that includes faeries and elves. Others may have different definitions but when these elves use the word fae we mean to encompass most of the inhabitants of Faerie. This, of course, includes the faeries themselves, but also pixies, brownies, fee, fey, leprechauns and nearly every other manner of faerie folk, including the Shining Ones, the Tuatha de Danann, the Seelie, the Sidhe in their various forms and many others. Even we elves are fae in our way. And naturally, we include the merfolk, the selkies, the sea sprites, the wood sprites, the sea nymphs, the wood nymphs, the dryads, the centaurs, the satyrs and many other folk, which in that sense would also include Tolkien’s Ents. How about hobbits? Are they fae? We’d think so, but a very brownie like fae, a very homebody sort.
Then there are ... the denizens of the darker realms of Faerie, the Unseelie folk, the trolls, orcs, goblins, grimlens, giants and others of darker sorts... We don’t wish to exclude them, unless they wish to be excluded... And remember that certainly not all of the folk of the darker realms are evil...
And that’s the point really, we never exclude anyone who wishes to be a part of Faerie and makes the effort to attune to that vast and wondrous realm. We surely could not exclude them from Faerie itself, but neither would we exclude them from our own hearts and understanding of Faerie. Only those who do not wish to acknowledge Faerie are excluded from it. But really, when it comes down to it, each must decide for hir own s’elf whether sHe is of the fae or not.
