I'm just looking for recommendations on those two specific things: What should I read/watch to get a feel for the Fae in terms of its myth/folklore, and in terms of characters who fit the Fae mold in recent fiction?
Graphic novel: "The Good Neighbors, Book One: Kin"
Book: Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman
Movie: Pan's Labyrinth, Peter Pan
Television Show: True Blood, seasons 3-4 (spoiler: Sookie realizes she's a fae)
RPG Text: Changeling
