Galactic Gardens

“This is Wigglenaut Pandanski to Wigglenaut Bunaire, do you copy?”

“Copy what? I think I have paper and a pen somewhere… ohlook, birdies with handy headlights!”

“…do you hear me?”

“Of course I do, that’s why I answered, see. But look at them, so convenient! ‘n I think I see blue light at the roots of these flowers.”

“We have a Close Encounter of the Third Kind, Wigglenaut Base, I repeat, we have-“

“Where’s the first and second? Ohoh, there’s another down there! But I don’t see the third…”

“The alien seems non-hostile and appears to be trying to communicate.”

“He’s waving! Let’s wave back! ‘n wiggle our ears, he has excellently big ears for wiggling, I bet they talk through that.”

“Wigglenaut Base, I request fast-forwarding my retirement request.”

“Maybe if I’ll put a candle on my head, the birdies will talk to me, what do you think? I wonder why the blue-friendlies don’t float, do they have glue in their paws…”

“The faster the better. PLEASE.”

The brave wigglenauts are adventuring in a Galactic Garden created with plantlife from Cerridwen’s Cauldron, the best source for fantasy, scifi and plain exotic flora on the grid. If you have ever wished to build your own space settlements, now is an excellent time to shop there, for the creator of Cerridwen’s Cauldron, Elicio Ember and his family need help. There’s Filling the Cauldron fundraiser going on if you want to join in as a merchant, entertainer, blogger or an artist, as well as several other ways to help. There’s also a Design a Garden Contest if you wish to build a Galactic Garden of your own and show it to others, too!

Jouluiloa

“But Santa gave the karot to you, since you don’t have a nose.” The bunling peered up at the snowman with a worried frown.

The snowman smiled — in truth, he smiled all the time because that’s the way he was made, but this time he meant it. “I have a perfectly good nose. I like it, all small and round. Makes me look cuter, too. You can have the carrot.”

The bunling beamed and shuffled his paws in the snow, glancing at the giant carrot, then up at the snowman again. “Are you suuuure?”

The snowman made a sound that tried to relay he would nod if he could move. “Yas. Merry Yule, little critter.”

“Happy Karot Dei!” The bunling responded, touched a paw to the carrot, then hopped closer to the snowman and pressed a small paw against his side. After a moment a decorative paw-scribble was decorating the snowman and the bunling began the Operation Drag Karot Home. He would share the treasure with his cousins and tell stories of the Snowman With Round Nose.

Very merry all the things, holidays and celebrations, solstice and lightening days, warm lights and snuggly nights!

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.

“‘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.

Spring Secrets

eastereggs3bs

“But how do the eggs get into the hooman world?” Cheepy the Third inquired. “We work hard all year with the eggs and flowers and butterflies and the exact right tone of yellow, and then one morning they’re just gone!”

“It’s the Guardians of Spring Secrets,” chirped Squee the Fifth. “Once we’re aaalmost ready, they send out someone to check our work and when they approve they’ll magic the eggs away, just like that! One wiggle of whiskers and swoosh!”

eastereggs2bs

“Not just a swoosh,” Goldiedots the Guardian spoke up, startling the chick workers. “It takes careful calibration of each bush and hiding spot and extremely patient channeling of spring energies. But that-” He paused for a moment, the official tone changing into an excited squee as he hopped next to the tiny bird and egg tree. “Whoooo did this one? This is brilliant!”

Cheepy the Third plopped down next to the Guardian, shamelessly proud. This year spring would be better than ever! The sun would be brighter, days warmer, birds more melodious and bunnies hoppier. It wasn’t easy to make the perfect spring, but by the Royal Tailfeathers of the Jazz Chicken, it was satisfying!

The spring in Second Life would not be a proper spring without the Easter Hunt in Magic of Oz. Go pick up your egg basket and collect your prizes in Magic of Oz! You can read about how the hunt works and preview the prizes here.

Flutterpaws, the Dreamlings of Whimsy

flutterpaws1bs

Flutterpaws are dreamlings of whimsy. They flutter and pad and nose their ways through dreams with either endless curiosity or excessive feline indifference. When they find a dreamscape they like, they gather as indeed a flutter of paws, one after another.

flutterpaws3bs

Fish or other flickering moving things are often favored, but any dreamscape of shiny surreal things is sure to draw their attention. They don’t make friends often, the flutterpaws, but they do love chasing after zig-zag patterns and making a point to ignore anything they don’t comprehend. 

flutterpaws2bs

The yoga frogs inhabiting this particular dreamscape have fortunately endless zen patience toward their quirkier dream-kin. Perhaps the next time this dream will feature less butterflies and flying fish for less feline interruptions and therefore more meditation opportunities.

flutterpaws5bsSometimes when the flutterpaws feel especially whimsical, they invite a dreamer to join them: transform and transport, all for the sake of momentary amusement and an extremely puzzled dreamer with a story to tell when they wake up.
