She Walks on Water

She walks on water, each step barely dipping pale toes in, causing small ripples. Each ripple sprouts life, drawing forth plants, flowers reaching up to the daylight, up to her. 

She walks on water, and the flowers bloom with magic, swirling in the breeze like fireworks, delighting in the footsteps of Spring.

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!

The Flavors of the Fairelands

As the Fairelands return and open the portals to the mundane realms for the eleven brief days of magic, so do their denizens, the Faire Folk. Some of them are warm and sunny like unicorns on a summer day, but some gather shadows around them like a cloak, sliding through the fog in the darker corners of the land.

There is always necessary contrast there between dark and light, magic stemming from all living emotions, the good and the less-so. There is an invitation to all beings no matter their allegiance, a call to come and join your kind. For no matter the flavor of your spells, we all belong together in magic. We all belong together in the Fairelands.

Fantasy Faire is now open (April 20 – 30, 2017) and as usual, it’s full of events! If you’re interested in shopping, there’s the shopping catalogue. If you’re interested in roleplay, dance performances, Literary Festival, DJ parties or any other events we so often come up with, check the Faire Happenings daily! If you just want to get all the landmarks, this is your page.

The Purple Season

It arrives after the Freezing Teal, the season of Purple. It spreads slowly over the realm, colouring each spore and shroom with it. The Season Changers have already shifted their skins, their markings turning to reflect the current growth plans.

Each line, each symbol, number, cipher on their skin represents a change still to take place, a shift they will conjure into being. With each realm alteration a line vanishes, leaving just pure purple behind. When the plane glows in radiant hues of various purples, their skins will be free of designs and their work will be done.

With Fantasy Faire on the horizon I’m feeling understandably purple. (Psst, the blogger applications are open until April 15th.)

I also wanted to draw your attention to an event ending this weekend: Filling the Cauldron. You can still catch some of their epic entertainment schedule today and tomorrow. I’m sure you want to support more fantastically purple plantlife growth on the grid, right?

Born of the Sea, Staring into the Sun

They are born of the sea, the Guardian Drakes of the Sunny Shores. Born of the sea, staring into the sun. As their eyes ignite from the brilliance of day, their flames burst forth, patterning their blue scales with gold.

Magic weaves itself into wing shapes on their backs, into bits and pieces of decor around their forms, into a halo of a crown declaring their status. It covers them in its embrace: energizing, glamouring, clarifying.

In the end the Guardian Drake is draped in magic — channeling, breathing, radiating the glow — and is ready to leave the depths of the sea to embark on their journey to the Sunny Shores. To guard, defend, protect. To illuminate.

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!
