The Between is Breached

“Tell me, minions mine, what news from the Border, what word from the Threshold, what whispers from the Between?”

“O Mistress Most Magnificent, tonight is the Night: the Border opens, the Threshold is crossed, the Between breached. The cards so pronounce, the runes declare, the moons of nether shine upon the Door.”

“Witness then, my vicious vouboos, witness and rejoice: it is time to summon spirits to wander the waking world. Upon my call they shall come, my words they shall heed, my will they shall follow. The mortal world shall feel their presence as they walk its streets: truths among lies, surreal realities amongst disguises, hidden in plain sight. 

Each step they take draws shadows from human hearts, each inhale of stolen breath drains courage, each bastion of rationale besieged by doubt, assaulted by belief older than this newly-found love of facts.”

“Their hearts fill with dark whispers and undeniable certainty that there is something near them: behind them in the room, in the dark corner of the street, under the bed, just out of sight but so certainly there they can hear the breath that is not drawn. Their hearts become ours. This night, this night when the Between is breached.

This night they know that underneath the fairest of Ariels lies Caliban awaiting. This night the nether realms are empty, for their creatures all walk amongst you.”

Magnificent masquerade this Halloween: keep your eyes open, pay attention to the corner of your eyes. Who knows what you might see.

Calling the Celebrants

touch-of-blood-4bs

We have been invited. Every year the invitation arrives, every year the curtains are drawn aside to reveal doorways, every year the Sound of Life rings in our silenced ears once more. It calls, it beckons, it pleads. Just like it always did. Just like it always does.

touch-of-blood-2bs

Each of us celebrates the return to the Land We Once Walked On. Some of us simply step through, others sail in with more impressive means, some slink and slither, some arrive with a bang. Some run through the streets screaming, some hiss softly in the passing October breeze.

touch-of-blood-1bs

It does not matter how we celebrate, what matters is that we all do. For one night, one glorious night a year, all the chains are broken and we are free. Free, and dancing amongst you.

They Say: The Story Behind Blood

They say I’m bad. That I strike before speaking, strike before thinking, strike for the pleasure of striking.
anarchy1s

There’s songs about me, songs about wading through the lakes of blood I’ve drawn. Rivers, lakes, seas, oceans, it all depends on the minstrel.

anarchy2s

They say I don’t even have a reason. I don’t bathe in it for youth, I don’t drink it for occult sustenance, I don’t walk on some grim path of vengeance. 

anarchy3s

They say I just want to have fun. …and you know what, I do believe they are absolutely correct.

Unlikely Eve

“If you consent, neither you nor any other human being shall ever see us again; I will go to the vast wilds of South America. My food is not that of man; I do not destroy the lamb and the kid to glut my appetite; acorns and berries afford me sufficient nourishment. My companion will be of the same nature as myself and will be content with the same fare. We shall make our bed of dried leaves; the sun will shine on us as on man and will ripen our food. The picture I present to you is peaceful and human, and you must feel that you could deny it only in the wantonness of power and cruelty.” – Frankenstein, chapter 17

creature1bs

The neverborn mate of the creature, the culmination of his plan to make peace with mankind, the symbol of hope and happiness that companionship brings to the lonely. What if she was not destroyed half-formed, what if Frankenstein kept his word and let his creature escape the civilization with his newborn mate into the warmer wilds than Europe can offer?

creature2bs

She would know nothing of the humans except the horror stories her mate bestows upon her to warn her away. To her eyes neither of them look monstrous for she’d have nothing to compare to nor any shocked reactions to prove such judgments correct. How long would she stay innocent, this unlikely Eve of crafted dead flesh brought to life again?

creature3bs

Perhaps it would all work out like the creature dreamed, perhaps they could have been happily lost in their own paradise. Unless, of course, one day her matured curiosity lured her out of the jungle and into the light…

A Tattered Page is a new in-store event that draws its inspiration from books. The first round focuses on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and you can find the shopping guide from the website. The creature skins with stitches are event exclusive by Fallen Gods Inc., sold for the event duration together with the non-exclusive unstitched cadaver skin, courtesy cadaver eyes and a mountain load of appliers for both genders.

They Wait

They wait. Between the worlds, in the space of silently slithering thoughts and ancient memories they bide their time. Their time never runs out, nor their patience.

theywait1bs

The realms shift, aeons pass, shadows slide in like the tide. They embrace the oldest of mysteries, the best-kept secrets: embrace and absorb before they retreat.

theywait4bs

The shadows breathe the secrets into the night air, into flickers at the corner of your eye, into the certainty of someone watching. They dance with every dark story you’ve ever heard, whisper so low that your ears cannot hear, so low that you feel it at the base of your spine: it is all true.

theywait5bs

They wait. The worlds turn, years vanish like blinks of an ancient eye. Enticed imaginations reach for them, feel them, fear them: feed them.  

theywait2bs

Every primal fear of the dark, every gasp of a frozen prey, every moment of fierce denial of the truth we feel curling around our throats like the slow dance of the python, every held breath of the child within hiding in a corner knows the truth older than our small world: it is true.

theywait3bs

They are true. They exist. They wait. There are moments within the world-turns when the doors open, the barriers vanish, the realms merge. Moments that arrive exactly when we wait for them the most.

Soon.

You better have your very own Cthulhu statue to appease (in vain) these particular Halloween guests, yesyes. The altar is a new release by Cerridwen’s Cauldron for Halloween. The naga-parts, accessories and trident are from gachas by !deviousMind, available in the main store.

What If?

It is the night for dark secrets, mysteries and myths. It is time for imagination to dwell in all the frightful spots at the back of your head, indulge in the startles, channel your mundane concerns into the fear of unknown and improbable, with that faint little voice within asking ‘what if?’ 

bloodhostess2csIt is time for delicious treats, delicious thoughts. Make your fears tangible, taste them on the tip of your tongue, reach for more, find ways to combat them by becoming one yourself.

bloodhostess3csTake comfort in the knowledge that soon the visitation will be over and everything will be back to safe normalcy: all the monsters will be back under your bed or in your closet, haunting you only in the moments of your weakness.

bloodhostess1csBut for now, tonight: dance with demons, inhale the fear, let the quiet what-if whisper grow into a roar: What if it is all true? Why couldn’t it be? After all, This Is Halloween.

The skirt by SAKIDE is a part of a special Obscure Dress in her Halloween House, the horns by Cerridwen’s Cauldron can be won in a gacha, the eyes by Pin Me Down are available in Flux, and the posture collar and necklace by [The Forge] are from Horrorfest.

The Grey Lady

“Don’t go near the briars or the Grey Lady will get you. She makes people fall into the thorns, see something shiny there, reach in and suddenly the thorns move! Just to draw blood. She feeds off of it, you know.”

greylady1cs“You’re being silly, there’s no such thing as the Grey Lady, it’s just an old story. I read that it’s based on some poor woman fleeing a warband into the briars, getting stuck and- …well, dying. Of course people would spin a story about it, she’s hauuuunting the briars, looking for revenge!”

greylady2cs“Well, if you read about it then it’s definitely true! She lived here, she died here, wouldn’t you haunt the place after a death like that? I know I would! Uses her ripped off jewelry as bait, or maybe she’s just still searching for them…”

greylady3cs“Yeah, sure, maybe in a horror movie. Ghosts don’t exist, don’t be such a scaredy-cat. …ohey, look, there’s something shiny in there!”

The briars by Cerridwen’s Cauldron, the skin by Fallen Gods Inc. and the gown by Senzafine are all available in the current round of We Love Role-play. The hair by Clawtooth is available in Collabor88 and the eyes by Pin Me Down in Flux.
