Home is small fiefdom located in the bad part of San Francisco, run by Devin. It is a flophouse for down and out Changelings Many changelings flee the Summerlands during their difficult growing up years, and Home provided a judgement-free refuge for any that wanted it.

Description Edit

✥ The Queen left the Home halfway house alone, because she couldn’t move against Toby's home fiefdom without insulting her liege, Sylvester. That angered her. When Toby was missing, her obstacle was gone. Winterrose stopped the Queen, in Toby's name.  

"A lot of changelings have fled the Summerlands over the centuries, building an entire society on the border between Faerie and the mortal world. The purebloods don’t know what to do with their precious half-blood children when they turn into angry adults." The fae never did anything to stop what went on in the borderlands, like Home. Changelings have gotten destroyed by the border world—fae equivalents for mortal drugs are far worse and Faerie held a lot of ways for the innocent to get killed. [1]
