A very kind friend sent me the link. A construction project in Iceland is being delayed because the local population fear that the road would cut through the local elf population. People are standing in front of the machinery and it's gone to Iceland's Supreme Court.
I am comforted that the elves go to church, as apparently there is a concern that an elf church will be affected by the development. The link is here.
I feel like my fiction is being left behind by the real world.
