|Temple of The Fae|
|Launch date||July 16, 2013|
Temple of the Fae is a website created by Mia Fainnir for her nonprofit organization Sanctuary of Otherkin. The temple describes itself as "an organization of religious worship for Elvin and Fae Kin" and states that "Our main purpose is to help any and all Elves and Fae who seek guidance at any point of their awaking, improving their spiritual path as they have chosen, communicate with other elves and fae, provide any education or assistance educationally for those interested."
The temple website also includes research into the history of elves and fae which purports to show bloodlines with physical elven ancestry going back to the historic kingdom of Álfheimr.
Within the first week after its creation, Temple of The Fae posted the article "What are Otherkin" written by MemoryAndDream, owner of the Embracing Mystery website. According to a statement by MemoryAndDream on July 22, 2013 this was done without permission, and was reported to google for removal using their DMCA copyright infringement reporting tool on July 22, 2013. It was removed on July 26, 2013.
During this first week, Temple of the Fae also posted a section entitled "Images and Wallpaper (Elvin)" featuring artwork of elves by various artists. One of those images had a watermark identifying the copyright holder and explicitly labeling it "no use allowed". On July 29, 2013 the artist, Alexandra Knickel of Lhiondaig.net, confirmed that this image had been stolen and used without permission on the Temple of the Fae site.
On July 20th, Temple of the Fae posted significant portions of Otherkin Alliance's FAQ, claiming that "The Following Questions and Answers have been utilized with help from The OtherKin Alliance" and "A questions and answer section is on this site in conjunction with the OtherKin Alliance to help answer questions." References to OKA were left intact in the copied text, such as "As far as OKA’s public face goes, we prefer to hold charitable events, even car washes, and just to hand out fliers." On July 28, 2013, Adnarel the founder of OKA confirmed that there was never any communication regarding collaboration, or to use their articles.
