How the Critters Went Caroling

“Does he bring the sun back, is that why he’s called Sun?” The smallest bunling peeked at the sky that showed no sign of light diminishing. “…in the places that don’t have Matshan and that get dark in the winter.”

“He’s not called Sun.” One of the squirrel brothers paused to explain, then continued shaking and listening to a nut, scouting for the weakest side for opening.

“Is too! Sun Da Claws! …although the claws sound sort of worrisome. Are they hidden in the mittens? Why does he need claws? Wrapping presents must be tricksy.”

“Nono, is San-ta.” Squirrel beat the nut against the ground, wishful gleam in his eyes.

“‘s what I said! Sun Da.”


“Suuuuun Da!”

“Has nothing to do with sun! ‘s just …word that sounds similar.”

“What does it mean, then?” The smallest bunling frowned and nosed his own ear in confusion.

“Dunno! ‘s just a hooman word.” The nut was almost broken by now, the squirrel knew it, just a couple more hits.

“Ladybun said ‘s cuter form of ‘saint’.” Addler stretched into all his otterish height to look more important.

“Ahaaa.” The smallest bunling nodnodded for a while, then headtilted. “What’s a seint?”

Addler sunk down into a round ball of cake-loving critterness. He had hoped the question wouldn’t come up. “It means… it means… A Very Good Hooman. Who brings everyone cake! ‘n gifts.”

The squirrel made a triumphant sound as the nut broke, then nodded in agreement. “Makes sense. Surely San-tah is the best hooman ever, even with claws.”

“The bestest hooman! …after Ladybun.” The smallest bunling beamed at the solved riddle.

“‘n Matshan.” Addler added, then sat down with a thoughtful sound.

“When he’s not grrrring.” The squirrel commented, now busy stuffing his cheeks with the nut.

“So the bestest hooman after Ladybun and Matshan when he’s not grring.” Addler repeated, happy that the consensus had been achieved.

“Sometimes not hooman!” The smallest bunling pointed out. “Sometimes a woof! Weffs told me, they wait for him every yool.”

“‘s good,” Addler agreed. “Woof surely speaks Critter better. Hoomans sometimes a bit deaf.”

“We should do something nice for Sun Seint!”

“But what? He has so many noms and toys and shinies that he gives them away, he doesn’t need anything.” Addler frowned in thought, for surely that’s all anyone could possibly want in life.

The squirrel paused, took another bite, then nodded. “We should sing to him!”

The smallest bunling’s ears shot up. “Oooo, like the Musikal Maus Band! We could even invite them along!”

Addler nodnodded, getting back up on two paws. “Like the Sensibly-Sized Hooman-Speaking Carolers that there’s on the Other Island every year!”

This caused a chorus of eeeeeeeeees all around, the critters were huge fans of tinies caroling, although they had never understood why hoomans called them ‘tinies’.

“We could sing classics like… Treatmas Everi Dei and Frosti the Snowpingu and O Festive-nom!”

“Weffs can invite him over, he can’t be busy yet, still many days to go.”

“Bestplan! Time to karaoke practice! I call Pina Colada! …we can put the singing stick in the snow and and…”

* * *

…and the best of holiday wishes, warmth and noms and relaxation to all of you from the Critters of Ambar and their Ladybun.

PS. If you’re also a fan of the Sensibly-Sized Hooman-Speaking Carolers, there’ll be tinies caroling in Selidor at 12:30 afternoon SLT on 29th of December! (Caroling followed by the Night Theater, another thing not to miss.) 


Petal’s Shopping Trip to the Fairelands

“Hai! ‘m Petal, ‘n I live with Ladybun ‘n Magician. They’re always busy in the Fairelands this time of year, so I decided to see what the fuss is about. Turns out there’s a lot of fuss! Also, fuzz. ‘n hats! Mr. and Mrs. Croaklet said this particular colour compliments my fur tone.”

“Ladybun always dresses fashonably for the Faire, so I did, too! Flower in the eye has been on top of the trends this year, I know, I read blogs! …well, at least look at pictures. …browse flickr once a month?”

“It’s otterly important to feel like a princess as often as critterly possible. ‘n to sparkle! Big things to carry on your head are gud, too. Ladybun always has stuff on her head, sometimes more than on her body! Just like me! ‘s gud critter dressage. Dress-up. Dressing?”

“Like so! Nothing else needed, perfection! All ready for my big date now, just need to find a romantik location…”

This year the Critter Adventures in the Fairelands advanced to the next logical level: fashion blogging. You can’t blame Petal, those are some fancy things to wear!

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!

“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


“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.”


“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!”


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.”
