After succeeding, Nirvana became a symbol of peace and the Nirvit made it their home.
However, for all the darkness that it had turned into light, Nirvana took more and more darkness upon itself. It turned its residents, the Nirvit, from light to darkness and made them fight among themselves until it was impossible to survive. The only one to survive was Roubaul; however, even Roubaul's body perished, but in order to atone for the sins he committed, his spirit watched over Nirvana until someone came that was powerful enough to destroy it in his stead. It was stated by Hibiki that in the "Final Stage" of Nirvana, light and darkness would completely switch places; however, he mentions that there are intermediate stages.
In Nirvana's first stage, a pillar of black light with dark Magic streams bursts from Nirvana itself. This causes those who are caught in the rift between light and darkness, due to negative thoughts, to completely switch sides. Victims of this stage were Sherry Blendy , who attacked Gray Fullbuster with her Wood Doll after having seen Lyon Vastia presumably die at the hands of Racer ; and Hoteye , when he hugged Jura Neekis after proclaiming that only love was needed to live.
In its second stage, which was activated by Brain , Nirvana, breaking the ground, erupts upwards, revealing the city where the Nirvit lived. From the earth around it, long spider-like legs appear, which seem to be made of flexible stone and are used as Nirvana's support and allows it to move. At the top of the palace in the center of the city, is the "king area", the point from where Nirvana is controlled by means of Magic.
This Lacrimas are positioned around the top of each of the six legs. The only way to stop Nirvana in this state is to destroy the six Lacrimas empowering it at the same time. Sign In Don't have an account?

These are probably evolving terms rather than hard and fast divisions, but what I would say distinguishes fairy tales from fantasy is that a fairy tale is a tale about a human being encountering fairy folk, who represent a danger to ordinary human life. Fantasy, on the other hand, has become more and more about the wielding of magic or otherwise fantastical powers.
Thus we have Harry Potter: not a story about ordinary people encountering dangerous magic, but about an extraordinary boy practicing magic and using it for good. In this sense fantasy is very close to science fiction, which is again about the exploitation of knowledge for power. In this sense we may see the fairy story and fantasy as diametrically opposed takes on the same theme. And in this sense, horror today is perhaps closer to fairy stories than fantasy is. In this specific case, I'd be very surprised if your child's teacher expected you to define it narrowly.
Any fantasy story would probably be acceptable. In general, however, a fairy tale is a short story with archetypal characters and plotlines. According to wikipedia the characters and settings are usually drawn from European folklore, however, there are similar kinds of stories from all around the world. The stories nearly always include some element of magic spells, wishes , fantasy little people, fairies, talking animals or the supernatural fate, prophetic dreams, genies , but there are stories which arguably fall in the category that don't usually stories about tricksters or heroes of extraordinary cleverness.
Fairy tales often seem to have deeper psychological meaning. The hero will get supernatural aid sometimes because of personal merit, sometimes not to overcome a series of challenges, and will finish the story by becoming king or queen. Sign up to join this community.

Ah, your answer shows me that she and I are both overthinking this. I appreciate your good contrast with the fantasy genre. That really helped. Actually, fairy tales were not originally written for children. They were folk tales and many of them were quite grim and gruesome. In many ways they were closer to the modern horror genre than to what we now think of as fairy tales for children.
Sorry, just quoting the dictionary And she said it was for her second grader, so I'm pretty sure the teacher doesn't want a bunch of morbid horror stories.
I'm gonna stick with my answer. Mason Wheeler Mason Wheeler 1, 6 6 silver badges 14 14 bronze badges. Chris Sunami Chris Sunami For second graders, one would want a short story with a happy ending. A story with a moral to it is a fable a la Aesop or LaFontaine , a different sub-set. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
