The Auto-Correct fairy is probably the newest of the known breeds, first being spotted around the time of the iPhone launch. It’s a direct descendant of the Predictive Hexed fairy that was the bane of the previous phones.
The Auto-Correct Fairy loves to embarrass humans, and is one of the few that seems to be able to actually read. Where it’s ancestor could only attempt to scroll through the predictive options for a message, this fairy can actually intercept and edit the message within the ether it’s self.
Although it is able to read, it has trouble with longer words, so it’s usual target are abbreviations and text speak. To limit your exposure it’s always best to text in correct English with punctuation.
Although they love to interfere directly with phones, they do not need to be near the phone in order to intercept the message. Because of this, it’s rare to find an Autocorrect fairy inside a building. More often they will ride about on the roofs of busses or sit on streetlights near a collection of bars.
These fairies are very fast moving and hard to spot, but the green wings that are so dark they appear black combined with the polished copper skin makes them very distinctive.
