Bit 1 Chapter One

Neverland was a strange place before Peter Pan.

Everything West of the Nevermountains was owned by the Indians, who were nice enough, but tended to stick to themselves, unless you knew them - like I did. The trail on the East of the Nevermountains led to the port town of Farraway, which sat right where the river joined the ocean in the cove now known as Pirate Cove. Back then, long before any pirates stepped foot in Neverland, it was known as Turtle Cove, after the turtles which lived there.

There were a few other towns and villages scattered around the East side of the island, but mostly people stuck around Turtle Cove. Anyone who journeyed too far East would stumble upon Mermaid Lagoon. The mermaids who lived there hated humans, so few who strayed there came back to tell the tale. Of course, I'm not human.

I am a fairy. I was born in Pixie Hollow, where all the fairies live. Pixie hollow is only sometimes a part of Neverland. You see, it moves. One minute it's deep in the heart of the Neverwood, the next it's in an entirely different galaxy. It's so hard to find that even I lost it, which is how I became a Lost Girl. I was supposed to be back in Pixie Hollow by sunset on our eighth day in Neverland, which was when we were going to leave, but I got distracted. When I go out looking for Lost Things, time just flies by. By the time I'd returned to the place Pixie Hollow had been, it had already moved on. I'd been living in Neverland for twenty years, though of course, it being Neverland, I hadn't aged a day more than I'd been when we arrived here; I'd been Sixteen years, nine months and twenty one days for the past two decades.

Neverland was a strange place, but a harmonious one, for the most part. Then Peter Pan came along and shook everything up. That silly eighteen year old boy who made a wish on the second star to the left. A wish to be young again.

Of course, I'm getting a little ahead of myself. That wish didn't come into play until later. Peter was still eighteen when I met him, although he was by no means a grown up.

    I love the idea. Some of the sentences were kind of long, but it's still an interesting concept.

    Love the idea and some nice nods to established original elements of the world. I would suggest making Peter a little younger . 18, while that borderline between grown up and child, I think that crossroads comes a bit younger, say 15.

    I like your descriptive beginning. You're doing some nice world building, connecting the readers with old information and some new ideas. Well done. That being said, as a reader, I'm excited to see some action scenes, rather than blocks of description. Hopefully the next chapter will start mixing in dialogue and action! Good luck, and keep up the good work!
