Is there a notable difference between Elves and Fae? I have a few faery books and they lump elves, Fae, mermaids, undines, gnomes, trolls and dwarves under the same category. I think I have had past lives as Tuatha de Danann. According to mythology, after the Fomorians defeated the Tuatha, they went underground and became the Sidhe. Last I checked the Sidhe are faeries.What thoughts do you have about this? Feel free to share. :)
I would say Fae is the species name that lumps them all -- like all are fae but not all are elves for example
elves are a type of fae
elementals and fae are different IMO -- i think it depends on how occultly inclined one is
I think that fae are much more connected with specific things in nateure than elves.
Yes but I'd call them fairies (which are a type of fae)
I feel you there. i have a stronmg drow to call myself Tuatha but also Elf. And many say they are Elves others say different.

I really appreciate your input. Though I'm more inclined to think of the Tuatha as Elves...But do you think they are more like the Fey? I have come across some sources that mentions the Tuatha as a Faery race. Other don't specify a race or they say they were Elves. Its hard to know what you are with so much conflicting information. :) But discussions help. I know I didn't originate on Earth. I can't say where I come from or what race, because I don't have a clue, but I know I'm not originally from here...soul wise, anyway. :)
I too am eager to meet Otherkin who are Fey, Elven, Sidhe or Tuatha.
