The Glass Prison

What brought the curious fauna to the library window of the Nautilus? There was always some sealife in sight, possibly just passing by, possibly trying to figure out what the great metal beast really was.

glassbetween1bs

Did they find the bizarre instruments and objects rare treasures, like the items humans hunt from the bottom of the sea, things that to the sealife are perfectly common and unimportant?

Or were they there to gaze at their captured kin, forever taken from them in their tiny display cells, locked away from the world, all for science?

glassbetween2bs

Or perhaps they were there to say hello, to greet the prisoners and to try and communicate with the strange metal beast, to see if it’d release what it took. Sadly, no matter how well they fluttered and shifted, Nautilus never replied.

A Tattered Page is still diving deep in the oceans with Captain Nemo, this round is focused on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. You can find all the items in the post from A Tattered Page Library.

Spring Sparkles

Spring arrives with a flourish, with a sweep of her blossoming hems, with a dance in her step and a promise in her tone.

springsparkles2bsShe emerges overnight to seemingly barren spots, celebrating with every little peeking bud and shy leaf. She sees the truth behind the tiny marks of growth: the sparks flying, the magic happening, the nature’s energies courting each other.

springsparkles6bsEach flower grows toward the light, toward the sparkles dancing in the complicated web that is nature. It all breathes together, connected, like neurons flashing in response to the change.

springsparkles3bsThe trees speak in leaves, in blossoms, whispering their wisdom to the younger plantlife, finding their voice again after the silence of the winter. They speak of growth, of shared life, of sensations so full there’s no separation between where a small flower begins and a grand tree ends.

springsparkles4bsThe nature celebrates: it sparkles in lights and flashes, in blooms and grass, in the sweet scent of life. Human eyes might not grasp all the details, all the colours and sparkling scents, but the nature does. It plays the song of joy with the energies, influencing the mood of even the truth-blind people.

springsparkles5bsSpring has arrived, with a smile and an invitation to join the dance of nature. 

The spring nymph by Fallen Gods Inc. is available in We Love RP event and the giant puffball mushrooms by Cerridwen’s Cauldron are a new main store release. The mushrooms shoot out spores on touch, react to each other and also have a HUD to trigger the reaction with. The result is an absolutely amazing fireworks show by nature.

We Dance Together

We dance together, light and dark. We court each other: reach, shy away, approach, embrace.

lumina4bs

We define ourselves through each other, through our existence as opposites, as complementing elements.

lumina2bs

Different. Opposite. Contrasting. Puzzle pieces fitting together, forming a complete picture.

lumina1bs

In the weave of our movements the magic of colours is born, in those spaces and energies between us they flicker and glow.

lumina3bs

We dance together, light and dark. The eternal balance of creation, the balance of life.

The light and dark nymphs have been conjured up by Fallen Gods Inc. You can still find Lumina’s two versions, Eclipse and Firefly, in a gacha at Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Go try your luck!

The Piccoli and the Princess

They find their ways into the forest sometimes, the giants. They’re usually lost and confused and need guidance to get out.

piccoli2bs

They don’t understand the normal language at all, and have pitifully small ears for signals anyway. Instead they make sounds, a lot of sounds.

piccoli4bs

Sometimes the animals feel bad for them and join them, sometimes they even use the forest energies to make sounds back at the giants. This always first shocks, then delights them.

piccoli3bs

We know better than that. Every time you acknowledge their presence and feel sorry for them and use a bit of magic to understand which kingdom is now in peril and what they need to save it, off you go on some quest and end up living in a castle full of giants.

piccoli5bs

No, thank you. We piccoli are better off in the forest. Who would train the birds and make the flowers grow if we left with every pretty giant that seemed to be in trouble and in need of help?

piccoli1bs

Nono, not even if you ask nicely. Not even with those giant puppy eyes. Talk to the otter, he’d love to go into a castle. Especially the kitchen. We’re busy. We have a spring to prepare!

Piccoli by D-Lab and Lizail can be won from The Arcade. They’re astonishing critters, padding and hopping independently from one structure to another and interacting with them. Shopping for noms, flying birdies, climbing up to tree houses, starting the sprinkler on their own. It’s absolutely fascinating to watch. Yes, I had to get them all. This was my March-Arcade Madness.

The dress by [FAIDA] & Fallen Gods Inc. can be purchased at the main store of [FAIDA]. The necklace by Anachron is available in A Tattered Page Library, where it is a part of the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea theme. The hair accessory by [NI.JU] is available in Origami event. The shoes by lassitude & ennui can be found from their main store.

The Things That Belong to the Sea

It is unknown whether dugongs possess the ability to be curious. In fact, one might think that the slowly grazing marine mammals are unfazed by anything short of all the food vanishing or seas drying up. However, sometimes there are things in the sea that might intrigue even a steadily swimming creature such as dugong.

dugong1bs

Perhaps it can remember these strange bits and pieces belonging to the two-legged creatures traversing the seas in metal shells. Perhaps it can remember that they do not journey peacefully, but harass its kin often enough to be dangerous.

dugong2bs

Does it understand that the strange metal pieces littering the bottom of the ocean are a sign of their defeat? Does it realize that the metal shell has broken and the two-legged creatures either swallowed by the sea or fled from its rage back to the land?

dugong3bs

Perhaps the most important question of all is: does it feel relief at the sight? Maybe even satisfaction? Or is it simply nosing for hidden food between the strange objects? Strange objects that now belong to the sea.

A new round of A Tattered Page has just started! This time the event focuses around 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. The various remnants of Nautilus by [noctis], 22769 ~ [bauwerk] and BluPrintz and the hilarious dugong avatar by The Muses are all available in the ATP Library.

The Truth About Fluffzoid 8

“This whole nonsense about sending defenseless tourists into Fluffzoid 8 is insanity. These are no ordinary rabbits, these lagomorphs. They have a vicious streak a standard distance unit wide.”

gothulonofficer1bs

“They require an expert training hand and unquestioned authority to tame properly and even then they might occasionally… leap and… nibble.”

gothulonofficer3bs

“The point is that as much as this travel arrangement brings in credits home to Gothulon, it must be organized with extreme care. Obligatory life insurance is not enough, there’s reputation at stake as well.”

gothulonofficer2bs

“Every expedition must have a trip leader from Gothulon with sufficient authority to keep the cuddle of bunnies at bay and every tourist must be equipped with appeasement carrots. In case of an emergency, remember the distraction power of the light and sound display throwables of Antioch.”

Futurewave has its travel teleports still open until midnight March 1st. If you haven’t visited yet, zoom on over! The jacket by Senzafine, android legs and hands by Star Quality, makeup by Beautiful Freak, eyes by Pin Me Down and the eyeware and data pad by BluPrintz are all available there.

Gothulon Travel

“Explore the dark reaches of the universe! Come see the space bunnies of Fluffzoid 8!” That’s what the ad said. Absolutely irresistible. There was an adventure to be had! Space bunnies to see! No one said a thing about waiting in line. At least there were comfy gear chairs.

travelagency1bs

“Excuse me, sir, I would like to book an adventure trip to Fluffzoid 8. Yes, I’ll pay extra for guaranteed space bunny observation. Yes, I’ll pay extra for the camouflage cloak to get really close to them. Yes, I’ll pay extra for… what life insurance? They’re fluffy bunnies! Lepus galaxicus pythonae! Why would I… oh alright, if it’s mandatory.”

travelagency2bs

“Holotickets securely marked on the genetic display, it’s time for an adventure! The trip seems to take place in adorably archaic saucers of beam transport, guess it involves close experiences of the star systems on the way.”

travelagency3bs

“Now to prepare these elderberries as bait and all will be absolutely perfect!”

Gothulon Travel at Futurewave might or might not be able to send you to interesting locations, it all depends on the amount of imagination in your genetic compilation. It is fun to visit, regardless! In case you find yourself confused: it is not a shop, it’s an amusement location for hanging out and taking photos in.

A lot of Gothulon Travel is made out of items for sale in Futurewave, like the usb2 tree by 22769 ~ [bauwerk], gear chairs by NeverWish and small flying saucers by Bliensen + MaiTai. As for the traveler look, the eyes and makeup by Pin Me Down, face tattoo and modules by Spyralle, dress by [ SAKIDE ], boots by NeverWish, necklace by Chaos, Panic, and Disorder! and the helmet by Anachron are also all available in Futurewave.
