     -------------
    09 Nov 2000:  After beating Majora's Mask and getting all the fairies, I 
                  decided to write an FAQ guide for it, because in some
                  areas, it is quite difficult.
    
    --- WHY BOTHER? ---
     ----------------
    In order to complete the game fully, you need to grab all 15 Stray Fairies
    in each of the four dungeons you'll encounter.  Each holds a special and 
    unique reward.  This is quite lengthy, so set up a large block of time to
    complete it.
    
    Questing for these fairies also results in you getting some items or powers
    that allow you to progress in the game MUCH easier than without collecting
    them!
    
    --- WHAT ITEMS YOU NEED ---
     -------------------------
    To do these quests, I suggest that you first beat the dungeon for ease of
    use.  This will make you more acquainted with the dungeon, and understand
    where to go a lot easier than if you just read.
    
    You CAN do this as you progress through a dungeon, but do NOT lose track
    of the Time of Day.  Focus on the DUNGEON, not the Fairies for now.
    
    You should have gotten the Great Fairy Mask from the Fairy in CLOCK TOWN
    before you even start on this quest.  If you don't have it, GO GET IT!!!
    
    You should have a few bottles, but make sure you have at least three. I 
    recommend you have the Giant's Wallet, but the Adult's Wallet will
    be fine.
    
    Fill a bottle with Green Potion in case you need magic and there aren't
    any areas around with pots.  Fill the rest with Fairies.  Leave one bottle
    open.
    
    You'll need a little bit of time around, at least an hour per dungeon, 
    since they are very confusing at some points. There are few points that
    reset, such as the Puzzles in various rooms of dungeons, but often
    you'll be able to just run through.
    
    Each dungeon has a total of 15 STRAY FAIRIES, hidden in chests, bubbles,
    or just floating around in the open.  Wearing the GREAT FAIRY MASK will
    show you when there is a STRAY FAIRY in close proximity to you, as the
    hair will start SHIMMERING.
    
    --- WOODFALL TEMPLE ---
     ---------------------
    LOCATION: Found after playing the SONATA OF AWAKENING as DEKU LINK in
              WOODFALL on the DEKU KING'S EMBLEM.
    DIFFICULTY SCALE: 4; Most Fairies are contained within the same room.
    TIME FACTOR: 25-45 Minutes.
    EQUIPMENT YOU NEED: Arrows, Hero's Bow, Great Fairy Mask, Deku Sticks,
                        Deku Mask.
    SUGGESTED EQUIPMENT: Hookshot, Chateau Romani, Fire Arrows.
    
       --FAIRY REWARD--
        --------------
    For completing this quest, you will master the CHARGED SPIN ATTACK. To use
    this form of attack, press and hold [B] to let your sword charge energy.  
    Release a devastating wave of energy at your target by letting go of [B].
    
       --LOCATION OF STRAY FAIRIES--
        ---------------------------
    1. In front of you will be a Stray Fairy hovering.  Put on the GREAT FAIRY
       MASK, and it will fly to you.
    
    2. In that same room (the entrance room), you'll see a chest on a nearby
       platform.  If you have the HOOKSHOT, fire to it, otherwise change into 
       DEKU LINK and propel yourself to it.  Open the Chest.
    
    3. In the second room (north of the Entrance Room), you'll notice a Deku
       Baba (purple plant that munches at you) next to the Locked Door. Kill it,
       and a Fairy will appear.
    
    4. In the room with the GIANT FLOWER, hop over to the far door.  Turn RIGHT
       and notice the platform with the pots.  If you have the HERO'S BOW, you can
       shoot the pots to shatter them, then wear the GREAT FAIRY MASK to collect
       it. If you don't have the bow yet, turn into DEKU LINK and hop over.
    
    5. In the room with the FOUR VENUS FLY TRAPS surrounding a DEKU LAUNCHER on 
       an island, take note of the treasure chest.  To the left of it is a
       beehive, which looks small and brown.  Shoot it with an arrow or a DEKU
       BUBBLE, and wear the GREAT FAIRY MASK.
    
    6. In the room with the STONE BLOCK that you have to push (behind the Locked 
       Door where you collected Fairy #3), there is a Stray Fairy.  You can
       position yourself after you get the HERO'S BOW and shoot it (you'll have to
       push the block around and move until you have a clear shot at the side of
       the bubble). Wear the GREAT FAIRY MASK to collect it.
    
    7. Above the STONE BLOCK in that same room are a few beehives.  Shoot them all
       with the HERO'S BOW, and one contains a fairy.
    
    8. In that same STONE BLOCK room, there's a Skulltula hanging from the wall 
       near the torch.  Kill it to reveal a fairy.
    
    9. In the DARK ROOM, kill all of the BLACK BOES to make a chest appear.  Open 
       it to get the 9th Fairy.
    
    10. In the GIANT FLOWER room, you can see a bubble from one side of the room.
        You can run over to the other side to kill it or use the HERO'S BOW and
        shoot it from a distance.  Put on the GREAT FAIRY MASK to claim it.
    
    11. In the GIANT FLOWER room, use the DEKU LAUNCHER near the unlit torch and 
        switch.  Fire yourself onto the switch and step on it to activate it.  
        Then, fly over and open the chest that opens.
    
    12. In the DEKU LAUNCHER ROOM before ODOLWA, the fairy is in a BUBBLE on the 
        first ledge on the right side of the room.
    
    13. In the same room above, there's another fairy on the third ledge up on 
        the right side.
    
    14. In the same room above, there's another fairy on the third ledge up on
        the left side.
    
    15. In the same room above, there's a fairy trapped in a bubble in the Flames.
        Shoot the bubble with the HERO'S BOW to free it, then wear the GREAT FAIRY
        MASK to save it.
    
       --LOCATION OF FAIRY FOUNTAIN--
        ----------------------------
    The WOODFALL FAIRY FOUNTAIN is located in the large cave behind the ledge where
    you played the SONATA OF AWAKENING to bring up the temple.  Use the DEKU LAUNCHER
    to fly to a nearby ledge with another DEKU LAUNCHER, and use that final blast to 
    get into the fountain!
    
    ---SNOWHEAD TEMPLE---
     -------------------
    LOCATION: Top of Mountain in SNOWHEAD.
    DIFFICULTY SCALE: 7; Due to tricky jumps.
    TIME FACTOR: 30-60 Minutes.
    EQUIPMENT YOU NEED: Fire Arrows, Bunny Hood, Hero's Bow, Great Fairy Mask, Goron
                        Mask, Empty Bottles.
    SUGGESTED EQUIPMENT: Hookshot, Chateau Romani.
    
       --FAIRY REWARD--
        --------------
    For completing this quest, you will DOUBLE YOUR MAGIC METER. The GORON ROLL uses
    a lot of magic over time, this bar is a necessity for most gamers.
    
       --LOCATION OF STRAY FAIRIES--
        ---------------------------
    1. In the room with the BROKEN BRIDGE and the three FREEZARDS (Ice enemies that 
       breathe frost at you), shoot the bubble under the platform at the end of the
       bridge and wear the GREAT FAIRY MASK to collect it.
    
    2. In the same room, drop down to the bottom.  Look at the STONE PILLAR where 
       the end of the bridge is connected.  Shoot the bubble with an arrow and put
       on the GREAT FAIRY MASK.
    
    3. In the room with the COLORED DOORS and large CENTRAL PILLAR, drop down to the
       bottom and become GORON LINK.  Hit the SWITCH and open the CHEST to get it.

       a bubble to your right.
    
    5. In the same room, use the LENS OF TRUTH to reveal platforms and an alcove on
       the wall across from the FROZEN EYE SWITCH.
    
    6. In the room with the DOUBLE BLOCKS stacked on one another (where you get the
       first small key, I believe), pull the blocks as GORON LINK until the end.  
       A chest will appear, but you won't be able to access this until you make your
       way into the COMPASS ROOM.
    
    7. In the room with the ICE PILLARS (this is room where you shoot the Icicles on
       the ceiling with your Hero's Bow, and they fall and crack the ice below), use
       the LENS OF TRUTH to search near the ICE MARKS on the room.  Jump inside.
    
    8. In the COMPASS ROOM, (the one with the White Wolfos and structurs frozen under
       the ice), use FIRE ARROWS to melt the ice and step on the switch.  Then, move
       the BLOCK near the ledge and climb up.
    
    9. In the same room, throw a BOMB at the crate on the right pillar near the 
       bombable passageway.
    
    10. In the room with the GORON SWITCHES, use the LENS OF TRUTH to look at the
        ceiling.  Use the HERO'S BOW to pop the bubble and wear the GREAT FAIRY
        MASK to collect it.
    
    11. In the room with the NUMEROUS ICE PLATFORMS and torches (near the Goron 
        Switch that activates the Central Pillar), kill all the Freezards to make
        a chest appear.
    
    12. In the room with the many EENOS (snowmen), use the LENS OF TRUTH to locate
        ICE MARKS on the wall.  Get it.
    
    13. In the CENTRAL PILLAR ROOM, When you are on one of the higher floors - 3rd
        or 4th - use the LENS OF TRUTH to target ICE MARKS on the wall.  Put on the
        BUNNY HOOD and jump into it.
    
    14. In the room with the TWO DINALFOS, kill one.
     
    15. In the room with the TWO DINALFOS, kill the other.
    
       --LOCATION OF FAIRY FOUNTAIN--

    mountain, and it's a big cave as you start scaling the mountain.

    SUGGESTED EQUIPMENT: Chateau Romani.
    
       --FAIRY REWARD--
        --------------
    For completing this quest, you will receive DOUBLE DEFENSE.  This is 
    displayed as a WHITE OUTLINE around your hearts, and it lessens the 
    damage you take from enemies by 50%! A necessity for most, if not all 
    gamers.
    
       --LOCATIONS OF STRAY FAIRIES--
        ----------------------------
    1. In the first room you appear in, light all four torches to reveal a 
       chest, a Fairy is inside.
    
    2. In the second room with the elevators, put on the ZORA MASK and sink 
       down to the bottom.  There's a fairy under the platform to the left.
       Use the Zora Boomerangs to pop the bubble, then grab the fairy.
    
    3. In the same room, the Skulltula that guards the platform with the
       rupees has a Fairy.  Kill him to get it.

       as GORON LINK, and a fairy is inside.

       MASK.
    
    9. In the room BEHIND THE GIANT BLADE ROOM (behind the WATERFALL you 
       froze with ICE ARROWS), launch some ICE ARROWS into the water after you
       HOOKSHOT to the platform with the barrels.  Look at the ceiling, and hit 
       the HOOKSHOT TARGET.  The Fairy is in a chest.
    
    10. In the GIANT SPINNING FAN ROOM, freeze the waterfalls.  Run along the 
        axle of the Blade, and jump onto the FAN, then turn to the RIGHT and

       --FAIRY FOUNTAIN LOCATION--
        -------------------------
    This fountain is a bit out of the way.  Head to GREAT BAY COAST, and go
    into the second area (where you enter Zora Hall).  Swim out and look for
    the islands with palm trees on them.  Use the HOOKSHOT to get to each one,
    then use a BOMB to blow open the fountain.
    
    ---STONE TOWER TEMPLE---
     ---------------------
    LOCATION: Accessed by playing the ELEGY OF EMPTINESS on numerous switches to
              maneuver blocks that allow entry to the temple.

       --FAIRY REWARD--
        --------------
    For completing this quest, you will receive the GREAT FAIRY SWORD.  Although
    big, bulky, and there's not a whole lot you can use it for at this point in
    the game, it's fun to run around back in time whacking things silly with it.
    The sword is etched with a Black Rose, and doesn't look that bad. :)  It's not
    required in any way, shape, or form to beat the game, but if you are one of
    the gamers going for the COMPLETED GAME like myself, do it.
    
       --LOCATIONS OF STRAY FAIRIES--
        ----------------------------
    KEEP IN MIND THAT SOME OF THE CHESTS CONTAINING FAIRIES CAN ONLY BE ACCESSED
    WHEN IT IS FLIPPED OR WHEN IT IS NORMAL.  COMPLETE ALL THE NORMAL ONES FIRST
    TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR TIME AND BE EFFICIENT.  YOU SHOULD HAVE CHATEAU 
    ROMANI FROM THE NUMEROUS MAGIC ARROWS YOU WILL BE FIRING!
    
    1. In the FIRST ROOM you enter, shoot the EYE SWITCH with an arrow to get
       a chest with a fairy.
    
    2. In the MIRROR ROOM (with the Black Boes), shine light onto the RIGHT MIRROR
       with your MIRROR SHIELD.  Run up to the rays it puts out and melt the SUN 
       BLOCK, and a Fairy is in a chest behind it.
    
    3. In the same room, use the MIRROR SHIELD to deflect the sun's light onto one
       of the six SUN CRESTS on the wall.  A chest will appear.
    
    4. In the DUNGEON MAP room, use the HOOKSHOT on the target above the two ARMOS
       STATUES and open the chest.
    
    5. Inside of the LAVA VENT ROOM, turn into DEKU LINK and propel yourself to the
       ledge with rupees, and open the chest.
    
    6. Inside the same room, stomp on the GORON SWITCH as GORON LINK. QUICKLY (I 
       know, this is VERY hard, you have to keep trying!!) GORON ROLL through the
       lava.  DO NOT let yourself go into GORON-SPIKE mode, because you'll lose
       control.  Roll around as smoothly as possible to the other side, and roll
       over the SWITCH to put out the flames around the chest.
    
    7. Inside the HIPLOOP BRIDGE ROOM, kill the Hiploop.  Then jump down onto the 
       ledge to your right and grab the rupees.  Plant a BOMB over the CRYSTAL
       SWITCH and get the chest that appears.
    
    8. In the WATER ROOM, let the DIXIHAND throw you up onto the ledge.  Use a 
       bomb and hit the CRYSTAL SWITCH, making a chest appear.  Use LIGHT ARROWS
       to melt the SUN BLOCK, and open the chest, guarded by a Beamos Statue.
    
    9. In the room to the EAST of the entrance, sink to the bottom as ZORA LINK.
       Shoot the spikes with your Zora Boomerangs, then step on the switch. 
       When you come back here after the temple is flipped, launch up to the 
       switch platform.  Play the ELEGY OF EMPTINESS as LINK on the switch, then
       fly over to the platform as DEKU LINK. 
    
    10. In the room after you beat the GARO MASTER, kill the EYEGORE enemy.  Open
        the chest to get another fairy.
    
    11. In the MAIN ROOM, go forward a few steps and turn around.  Shoot the SUN
        CREST to reveal a chest.
    
    12. Kill WIZROBE and open the CHEST that appears.
    
    13. In the room prior to the SECOND EYEGORE, there's a CHEST you can hookshot
        onto.  
    
    14. Sink to the bottom of the WATER ROOM, and you'll find a chest on a ledge.
    
    15. While the temple is UPSIDE DOWN, enter the EAST ROOM.  Run out onto the 
        narrow strip, turn, and fire a FIRE ARROW at the EYE SWITCH.  Sink to the
        bottom and open the chest. 
       --FAIRY FOUNTAIN LOCATION--
        -------------------------
    This fairy fountain is found in IKANA CANYON.  Hop down the ravine and into the
    water below, then swim to the EXTREME RIGHT and into the cave to find the last
    Fairy Fountain.
    
    CONGRATULATIONS! YOU'VE FOUND ALL THE STRAY FAIRIES!
