Remember how Terence cleans up Tinker Bell's work station while she's still working, indicating that he's a Neat Freak? Of course Terence would be a Neat Freak - he's a dust-talent sparrowman, and every speck of fairy dust is precious and cannot be left loose.
Why did Tinker Bell's autumn scepter design create more blue dust than usual? Near the beginning of the film, Terence mentioned that she could get more dust by exposing more of the moonstone's surface area during the ceremony. note This is actually scientifically reasonable, by the way: it's a natural consequence of the Square/Cube Law, similar to the reason why lumps of coal burn slowly while coal dust explodes.By using the broken shards instead of the entire sphere, Tink maximized the surface area of the moonstone!
In Fairy Haven & The Quest For The Wand, the fairies have to get a wand to the mermaids to save fairy haven. Now, remember how Disney often portrayed Tinker Bell with a magic wand despite the fact she never had one in the movie? Nice one, Gail.
In The Great Fairy Rescue, Lizzie's father consistently denies the existence of fairies, trying to get his daughter to believe that they are not real. As we've seen in Disney movies before (and the original Peter Pan) a fairies suffer a terrible fate when met with disbelief, leading to some unfortunate implications...
Wasn't that only with children?
It only seems to happen when said directly to them. If fairies died everytime someone didn't believe in them (with-or-without saying so), they probably wouldn't be as numerous.
Nope, any fairy could poof and disappear at any time due to disbelief. If it makes you feel any better, I always assumed if the child transitioned from child to adult without saying "I don't believe in fairies," the fairy would be safe, more or less (as well as assuming you could only kill "your" fairy, as in the one that was created due to your first laugh).
I had always thought that you could only kill "your fairy" as stated above, because you were connected to it because magic. I also assumed that the fairy died when you lost complete faith in their existence, not just when you say it. Since a lot of people lose their belief in fairies and the like as they get older, it would sort of keep the population down. Perhaps fairies like Queen Clarion were just super fairies who can't die. Of course, that probably means there's a few fairies who have lived or will live for an extremely long time, for example, Lizzie's fairy, as I doubt she'll stop believing anytime soon.
Nope. Remember Return To Never Land? Tink's been around for longer than Jane's been alive and Jane still nearly killed her.
You know the incomplete fairies, the ones that the rest kind of look down on? They're the fairy equivalent of the disabled...
More of a Fridge Oh, Crap, but... that moment during "The Pirate Fairy" when you realize that James is a young Captain Hook.
