FAIRY, FAERY, OR FAERIE?

I’m working on yet another fairy voice project. It seems fae-folk are my forte lately. Totally cool, but I do have one puzzling question:

Is it FAIRY… FAERY… or FAERIE?

I found some information online. Some people say that “fairies” are totally different creatures from “faery/faeries.” Others say “faery/faerie” is the Middle-English/Old-French spelling, and that today’s spelling is “fairy.”

What spelling do you think is correct and why?

    Faery/Faeries” is right for true fae folk. “Fairy” is Disney, Tooth Fairy, and Fairy Tale story.
