->''Faerie is a perilous land, and in it are pitfalls for the unwary and dungeons for the overbold...The realm of fairy-story is wide and deep and high and filled with many things: all manner of beasts and birds are found there; shoreless seas and stars uncounted; beauty that is an enchantment, and an ever-present peril; both joy and sorrow as sharp as swords. In that realm a man may, perhaps, count himself fortunate to have wandered, but its very richness and strangeness tie the tongue of a traveller who would report them. And while he is there it is dangerous for him to ask too many questions, lest the gates should be shut and the keys be lost.''

** The light and fluffy variant is Alfheim, which is intentionally almost unbelievably saccharine in recent comics (less so in some adaptations), and the inhabitants are pretty much defenceless against the likes of Malekith.

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 4th edition, or at least its TabletopGame/NentirVale setting, eladrin, elves, and drow (as well as gnomes, pixies, and nymphs) originate from the Feywild, a plane that is a bright and magical reflection of the natural world (as opposed the dark reflection, the Shadowfell plane). The Feywild is analogous to the Plane of Faerie of earlier editions.
** The ''Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition'' game supplement ''Player's Option: Heroes of the Feywild'', describes this plane and its inhabitants in detail. One of the first things the book says about the Feywild is that it is "sometimes called the land of Faerie." The Feywild is essentially ruled by the Archfey, a group of powerful eladrin who make up the Court of Stars. The nobles of the Feywild are Sidhe Lords. The Unseelie Fey are always trying to subvert the purposes of the Archfey.

** Likewise, the successor game, ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', has Arcadia/Faerie and the Hedge, which bridges the gap between Earth and Faerie. Whereas Arcadia was somewhat pleasant in the last game, however, here it's a swirling tide of chaos where [[TheFairFolk the Gentry]] desperately try to stand out in order to avoid getting swallowed by the maelstrom. As they can't exactly make anything new, though, they often kidnap humans to serve as their proxies/slaves/agents, who are then twisted into changelings by the sheer nature of Faerie.

* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} has the Forest of Loren - the magic-saturated woodland realm of the Asrai (Wood Elves), which follows this trope very closely. While not, strictly speaking, another dimension, time does run strangely there, and it is entirely possible for outsiders to wander in, lose themselves for centuries and crumble to dust upon leaving a day later. It is ruled by Queen Ariel and Orion, King in the Woods, who are immortal shape-shifting avatars of the elven mother goddess and her consort the hunting god. It is inhabited by ancient treemen, unicorns, great stags, dryads, forest dragons, warhawks and many other mythic beasts, as well as millions of tiny fairy-like sprites (the most aggressive of which are called Spites and go to war alongside the Wood Elves). The Wood Elves also have a habit of capturing beautiful human boy-children from surrounding lands, to keep as un-aging servants for their feasts, among other unsavoury faerie activities. Most of Loren is beautiful and unspoilt, if filled with capricious otherworldly beings and hidden dangers to outsiders, but the twisted deepwoods of the south-east are known as the Wildwood, where the trees are corrupt, the dangers are nightmarish and even the Wood Elves fear to go.

* In ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen,'' it's mentioned that Faerie and England were united under [[TheFaerieQueene Queen Gloriana]]. Both sides remained close until Oliver Cromwell came to power and declared war against what the Puritans saw as "heathen abominations." Thus the land of Faerie was closed forever.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' has the parasite universe of Fairyland ruled by the Queen of the Elves. [[YearOutsideHourInside There the flow of time has stopped while time on the Disc flies by]]. Fairyland is a bleak place caught between day and night where creatures of myth are stolen from other dimensions such as minds and dreams. The section ruled by the Queen is stuck in everlasting winter while the King's world is steaming hot.

* Creator/RobertRankin's ''Raiders of the Lost Car Park'' [[MagiBabble "explains"]] that Fairyland consists of the parts of the world that exist on flat maps but not on globes, which in fact has nothing to do with Mercator's projection or anything like that, don't be silly.

* Faërie is a "shiftrealm" (a land that moves between universes) in the ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} setting ''TabletopGame/InfiniteWorlds''. It's ruled by Oberon and Titania, and resembles Western European countryside on a perfect spring afternoon. It has "trods" (faerie roads) linking it to various Earths and other magical shiftrealms.
