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.

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.

The Wings of Vanitas

vanitas3bs

Every year the new form takes her by surprise. She knows it’s coming, she can feel the change, the pull, the call, the sheer excitement of anticipation, but she never manages to guess what she will be once the magic in Selidor finishes its work. Some years she grows scales, some years she has a tail and some years she spreads wings to take to the suntouched skies. This is one of those years.

vanitas2bs

This year the wings are made for preening, not for flying. The skies did not call her up, instead all the flowers on the ground invited her to flourish next to them, to match the splendor. Every step stronger, every twirl more luxuriously delicate, Vanitas finds herself within the stunning sceneries, finds herself as a part of the whole, spreading her feathers not to fly, but to adorn the glory of magic even further.

The Source Seeker

abysscollector3bs

The flight to the abyss is a long one. It’s mostly a lonely, cold flight through various realms and empty spaces where the only light in existence is the one you carry within you. It is a test: how long does your light hold out against the dark, how persistent is your spirit glow?

abysscollector2bs

The ancient structures that were once mushrooms growing from an asteroid to another mark the way in the end, pulling you to the flow of inspiration at the source of all magic, nourishing your abyss-drained soul. Nourishing, fulfilling and healing until all the obstacles in your journey feel just a distant memory and there is only the glorious Now of Potential and Possibilities.

The Magic of Inspiration is the rarest of energies, always challenging to seek, eternally rewarding to find.

Forest Daughter’s Strange Day

newfriend2bs

On one sunny autumn day one of the Forest Daughters heard a peculiar sound. She wasn’t quite certain what it was, if it came up from the trees or down from the grass, or possibly the embrace of the bushes. It sounded a bit like hedgehog snuffling mixed with busy conversation. “You go!” “No, you!” “Don’t drop it!” “I get to press the button!” “You goooo!”

newfriend3cs

After some slow turns of her branches, she heard a voice. “Excuse me, pritti tree lady. Parrr-don. Could you possibly pick me up for a moment?” A white fluffy creature hopped out from the undergrowth and the Forest Daughter leaned down to pick him up. For a moment he just wiggled his nose at her. Then there was a flash of light, a cheer of small voices and the bunling hopped down with a quick “thank-youuu!” and was gone.

He was followed by a strange line of squirrels and an otter balancing a camera on his head. The Forest Daughter tilted her head, then extended her branches in a shrug and focused back on the precious last rays of sunlight.

Bunlings wanted to participate in the Fallen God & Goddess Contest 2016, but knew they are physically incapable of qualifying by the rules, so they came up with a Cunning Plan: sneak into a picture with a creature that works!

You can find the said rules, deadlines and all the other information on the Fallen Gods Inc. blog, but the rough nutshell is: take a picture wearing a skin (or petite) from Fallen Gods Inc. and send it full perm to Sonya Marmurek before Friday 7 October 2016, 11 pm slt. All the contestants receive an exclusive skin prize, and there’s plenty of other prizes as well!

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.
