Beansidhe's Wail is a piece of original fiction written for NaNoWriMo by Winter Rose Nightingale-Nickerson.The plot revolves around the 7 members of the titular band, all of whom are half fairy/half river god/half sisters, and their adventures as they attempt to weaken the barrier separating the human "Waking World" and the supernatural realms of the Faerie and their lives as famous musicians/actresses/models. Unfortunately, since the story didn't have a chance to get going, the story as it is written focuses on the girls' trip to a Renaissance-themed restaurant after a concert and Wynne recalling her numerous (and often tragic) past lives.
This story provides examples of:
Awesome McCoolname — A bit justified since the main characters are fairies. (Wynne is pronounced "Win" and the "gh" is silent in Oonagh, and "beansidhe" is the Gaelic way of spelling "banshee".)
The Beautiful Elite — If the above quote and the fact that the main characters are fairies and celebrities didn't tip you off to this, the numerous physical and clothing descriptions (especially for Wynne) should have.
Beauty Equals Goodness: While beautiful at night, Oonagh transforms into a hideous monster during daytime. Wynne, in contrast, is always startlingly beautiful.
Been There, Shaped History: Wynne was the inspiration behind many hailed pieces of art, as well as several important historical figures.
Historical Hero Upgrade: Quite a few. For example, Kathryn Howard, a past life of the herouine, was actually a tragic young noblewoman who committed adultery because her heart could not choose between her two lovers. Also, Creator/Lord Byron apparently was a tragic, romantic hero.
Our Fairies Are Different: The seven sisters all are different types of faeries from all over the western world. Some are portrayed rather close to their mythological counterparts, like Oonagh, the corrigan, others, like Wynne, the leanan sidhe... not so much. They're also all a Superior Species.
Politically Correct History: None of the negative sides of any historical period during which Wynne lived are ever mentioned, most notably that being a French noblewoman at the time of Louis XVI. is very likely to get you beheaded.
Purple Prose: One of the story's most distinguishing features.
Shapeshifting: Wynne is outright stated of being capable of this, Rowena, as a selkie, is naturally capable of this, too, and Tamlin is a bird of prey who can transform into his faerie form only once a year.
Small Reference Pools: The painters named are Waterhouse, Blair-Leighton and Rosetti, the writers named are Shakespeare, Keats and Byron, the composers named are Strauss, Mozart and Bach, the only painting mentioned is The Accolade.
