The Memory of the Sea

pearlmemories1csEach pearl is a memory. Some are sparks of joy, leaping within the waves, meeting new friends, swimming in sunlight. Some hold sorrow, carry moments of loss, loneliness, despair. They form within the Sea as all its children experience life. They form within the Sea and the Sea never forgets.
pearlmemories2csWe bear them for her, we beings of starlight and waves, foam and eternity. The pearls wrap around us, moment by moment, heartbeat by heartbeat. We carry the life of the Sea in all its rich beauty, we laugh with dolphins, we weep with whales, we remember the brief flashes of light before the darkness descends, we treasure the long years of turtles, we feel it all.
pearlmemories3csThe Sea is alive, and she never forgets.

The Mittens Visit Wizard Whiskers

fourfelines1as

“Is this the right path to the wizard?” The voice was soft and curious and only a little bit nervous.

“Yas,” another voice responded. “Lookit, a lantern guardian bun, just like Madame Miu said.”

fourfelines2as

“Please help us, o Mighty Wizard Whiskers. Flufftail has been turned into a hooman!”

“She’s now all mute, makes just weird gibberish sounds ‘n tries to walk on her hindpaws all the time.”

“She’s even started wearing other animals’ skins on herself! It’s so gruesome that we don’t know what to do!”

fourfelines3as

Wizard Whiskers did not say a word, simply nodded slowly and glowing strands of sparkles picked the hooman up to twirl her in the air until all the Mittens could see was glittering lights. Then they heard a soft thump as something considerably smaller and fluffier landed on her four white paws.

fourfelines4as

“‘n that’s how we got our sister back and learned not to play with cursed red ribbons. Not even when they have wiggly tinkly bells attached.”

Borrowed Mane in the Summer Rain

Hair Fair Contest 2016 - Summer Rain s

After hearing about Wigs for Kids, Bunling That Knows Letters wanted to show that one can look simply fabulous by using a borrowed mane — even if the summer rain gets it in your eyes. 

A quick picture for Hair Fair Photo Contest 2016 with the theme Whatever the Weather. In this particular case, a warm summer rain that threatens to flop the fancy wig the bunling is wearing.

Training for the Pingu Olympics

beachparty2bs

The Pingu Olympics are approaching, but it’s too hot to train. The blazing daystar threatens to melt the whole support and fan camp, too, but fortunately the Drink Delivery Doggies excel at their job!

beachparty4bs

Some brave souls still practice challenging summer sports with amazing skill, precision and determination. Pingu Olympics are a serious matter, no sudden heat wave will disturb the training routine!

beachparty3bs

It’s also important to stay well hydrated and nourished, summery noms and personal bathing helper are a must for any pingathlete aiming for improvement. 

beachparty1bs

With enough practice and stubborn sisu, even a pingu can learn to fly! …at least the few centimeters before the splash, but it still counts!

The Arcade is open again and provides hours of amusement if you’re fond of silly critters like I am. Each pingu comes with a piece of furniture, an effector, and they are scripted to interact with them, padding, hopping and flying all over between various pieces, just like piccoli do, which made them my must-have-them-all collection of this round.

The Gods of Sand, Stone and Gold

Gold1bs

There is a place within the Fairelands made out of sand, stone and gold. It glows under the blazing sun, lazy breeze bringing in scents from the desert.

Gold2bs

Sand swirls in patterns against the columns, an embrace of hot air surrounding the ancient stone, brushing against the hieroglyphs as to write its own story.

Gold4bs

Gods form out of the heat: gods of black marble and gold, gods of desert and river, gods of life and death. They stand guard against the disruptions of time, their stone shapes wrapped in eternity.

Gold3bs

There is a place within the Fairelands called The Golden Delta. Won’t you come over and visit?

Fantasy Faire is still open this weekend, Sunday is the last official day. If you haven’t yet visited, it’s time to go!

The Other Depths

otherdepths3bs
There are strange creatures swimming in the depths of OtherWorld. Creatures born as colourful as the world around them, camouflaged within the plants, breathing in same bubbles of magic as the plants fluttering within the currents.

otherdepths2bs

They form symbiotic relationships with other creatures, embraces of friendship and support, each lending strength to another in ways the other does not possess. They do not garden, they nurture. For them life flows in one stream that each brings something unique to, for them there is no separation of self from the world, for them they are all one. For them all is life.

If you have not yet visited Fantasy Faire, it’s high time! If you happen to be a mer-creature, I warmly recommend the seas of OtherWorld for you.

The Secrets of Fae Magic

sparklefae3bs

“Let me tell you a secret,” the lavender fae whispered. “Let me tell you how we fae fly.” She paused, taking to air without as much as a flicker of her petal-covered wings. “The wings have nothing to do with it. Not anymore.”

sparklefae2bs

“We fae can draw in ambient energies of imagination, we breathe it in, sense it in our surroundings like sunlight on skin. Just like daystar warms us, imagination and inspiration give us power.”

sparklefae4bs

“We channel it and transform it into magic of another kind, of lights and music, of flight and sparkles, and most importantly; we channel it into dance. We laugh, dance, fly, live. They are the same.”

sparklefae1bs

There’s no better place to learn to fly and dance than the Fairelands. Fantasy Faire invites you to indulge and experiment with transformations, with magic of inspiration and imagination.
