Miss Flake and the Lost Little Bunling

“You see, Miss Flake, the last night’s snowfall was really rather heavy and we think you might have overdone yourself just a dash. Our young’un hopped out to play, but we lost sight of ‘im, because of the white fur and snow and all that, you understand. I said to Pinknose, I said to her, why don’t we talk to Miss Flake. She’s a sensible kind of snow fairy, she is. She’ll help us.”

missflake1cs“Of course I’ll help, Mr. Pokepaw. It is sort of my fault, after all. I danced slightly longer than I was supposed to, but it was just such a perfect weather for it and there was no breeze at all and all the crystals and I- …um. I mean, I’ll go and start searching right away, why won’t I.”

missflake3cs“Mr. Hoowing, any sign of- oh, still naptime. I’m sorry I woke you. Yes, have you seen a tiny white ball of fluff in the snow. Why are you looking at me like that? Oh fine, sure, go back to sleep, I’ll find him on my own!”

missflake4cs“Mr. Yapnose! That bun better still be- oh, but he is. All swaddled cosily, too. What, you were carrying him around with that for safety? No, I’m afraid you can’t keep him, his family is dreadfully worried. Come on then, give the bunny to me. No shifty looks or snarly mutterings!”

missflake5cs“Yesyes, he’s fine. The fox said he was too cute to kill, it’s a great thing you have going there. Now you keep an eye on him better and I’ll promise to dance lighter snowfalls from now on. No more flaking!”

The Frost petite is a new release from Fallen Gods Inc., the lost little bunling is a pocket pet by .Birdy. from a gacha at Chapter Four and Mr. Hoowing and Yapnose are from a gacha at Beetlebones. The bunny family is of course from Happy Mood.

Gothilocks

But only two bears. Surely this was some sort of bizarro-day in story land, things definitely out of place and overlapping. Holidays mixing with fairytales, critters running from one story to another, no one sticking to the original plans anymore, absolute chaos! (And hijinks and shenanigans.)

gothilocks1csThere was no porridge nor beds, but a holiday feast and comfy pillows, even a small gingerbread house for noms. Gothilocks wasn’t quite certain why there was a snowshoe rabbit riding a small yak indoors, but surely there’d be an explanation for everything eventually.

gothilocks2csThe cocoa train kept puffing along steadily while the little arctic fox tried in vain to awaken the doggie that had unfortunately zoomed right through the Sleeping Beauty’s story before landing here. It was all so very peaceful and cosy that it was tempting to close one’s eyes, for just a moment.

gothilocks3csBut wait, maybe it wasn’t just the doggie… where did all this food come from if not a castle’s kitchen? Definitely not from this cottage, there’s not even a kitchen here! This amount of sleepiness all around cannot possibly be just from relaxed atmosphere… there’s trouble afoot!

Most of the look is from Gothmas by Gaslight. The outfit by Violent Seduction, the furniture by [noctis] and the nails by Pin Me Down are located in Cursed. The skin by Jalwa and shoes and jewelry by Eclectica can be found in Sium. The cocoa train by Lark and the sleepy doggie with pillows and the yak by +Half-Deer+ are from the current round of The Garden. The arctic animals are from a gacha in Beetlebones. The eyes by Adoness are a part of F R O S T and the gingerbread house by Poche is from the Christmas Mini Mall at Naminoke.

Nuts in the Boom Room

“It’s your fault!” A high-pitched squirrel shriek wavered in the wind.

“How could I know humans disguise explosives as delicious nuts!” Exclaimed another voice.

“It said they were explosives! It even had a picture of a boom!” Third voice joined in.

“It was dark! …and …and I can’t read! I’m a squirrel!”

“SO ARE WE ALL!” The chorus sounded furious, if screechy small voices could be such.

squirrely1bs“She’ll ground you for life once we… you know… hit the ground!”

“No more flying ships and adventures for you-uu!” The chittering sound managed to convey a very strong nyah-nyah tone.

“No more nuts either! Explosive or otherwise!”

“Serves you right, too!”

squirrely3bs“Oh for Tesla’s sake: boys, just shut up for a moment.” The human voice sounded more amused than angry, although it attempted to stay stern. “We’re all alive. We’ll land somewhere, get a new ship, I’ll lock up the boom room and no one gets grounded. Although someone might have to be in the coffee delivery duty a few months extra.”

squirrely2bs“But for now we’ll fly until we find a good landing spot. In the meanwhile: here, have a nut. A real one.”

Ned the Newt and Hoo-Wo-Man

“I remember when Uncle Flip went missing,” the wise old toad croaked. The newts called him simply All-Seer because surely when one missed eyes it meant they saw more and better than others. “Soon after that the chocolate frog appeared. Coincidence? I think not! Boys, if you do not save your Cousin Fred from the Jar, he’s going to end up chocolate as well. Then chomp! She’ll bite the head right off.”

newthero1csSo it was that the bravest of them all, the young Ned the Newt wiggled his way up the fireplace, freezing in fear only when the spellcasting terror known only as the Hoo-Wo-Man glanced away from the mysterious object she held. Cousin Fred was frantically nudging with his tail toward the true horror: the chocolate frog that surely had to be the missing Uncle Flip!

newthero2dsNed the Newt squirmed between the Jar and the fireplace, waiting for the moment when the mysterious object flew away from the Hoo-Wo-Man so she had to flail to catch it again and look away. Then he pushed with his tail and huzzah! the jar was falling. But the Hoo-Wo-Man was already turning, noticing the movement. Ned lunged after the jar, no time for careful descent!

newthero3dsLanding on the floor was a painful, dizzy experience, but the Jar didn’t break — who knows what kind of materials it’s made of, terrible prison! The Hoo-Wo-Man was approaching already, but Cousin Fred was free! The newts scuttled back into the shadows as fast as they could, losing only Ned’s tail that he bravely left as a decoy to guarantee the safe retreat.

newthero4csBehind them they could hear the mysterious gibberish voice of the Hoo-Wo-Man: “…well, guess no newt familiar then. Maybe something cuddlier.”

The heroic newts, frogs and all the furniture and props are from the Wizarding Faire, the house by Trompe Loeil and the dress with the cape by *katat0nik* are from Collabor88. The earrings by Bliensen + MaiTai are from We Love Role-play and the eyes by Adoness are available in The Body Modification Expo.

Little Ark of Dreams

The ark to dream land departs in ten minutes or possibly an hour unless it already left! Time to check the weather — picturesque with a slight drizzle of fish — put on your best bowl for breathing on the surface and tiptoe aboard.

dreamarc1csIt’s good to check that the navigation tomes are sailing to the right direction and the gramophone plays the best of rains. Double-check that the couple under the instrument is waltzing and not trying a tango and then you’re all good to go!

dreamarc2csMake sure the ice cream stays smiling in the sun and that the apple house keeps steaming, then count every paw and tip of a tail before nose-wiggling at the oar-operator bunny that the journey may begin!

dreamarc3csOnwards to the best of dreams. Only the very best.

Most of the items are from Designers United that just opened. This includes the mochi ice cream critters by Ohmai, the boat by Vespertine, the gramophone by *bbqq*, the apple house by Poche, hair by Pesca, dress by Tee*fy, fish bag by Beetlebones, fish bowl helm by duboo and the first pose by marukin. The skin by Essences is from the new round of The Dressing Room Fusion, the eyes by IKON are from The Boutique and the book by Lark and fish by Yummy can be won at The Arcade.

Hamster Band and Wagon

We’re all on it, the hamster bandwagon. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, it’s the dwarf hamster mesh avatars by Beetlebones in The Arcade. This is a new month-long event to be repeated four times a year, it started on 15th and will end on 15th October. The next round after that will be in December. And it’s all about gachas!

I knew I had to have one, because seriously: so much squee! The other must-have for me was the bunny spices. !Ohmai’s gacha is full of various spice jars with different animals on top and spice racks as rare prizes. There’s eighteen different spices so for those wanting a full spice rack that’s quite a job to collect! I don’t have a house, so I had no need to get them all, but obviously I had to have  both bunny-ones just because.

I had to provide my hamster with sufficient noms, so here’s gacha prizes from Love Soul and BCC. A delicious sandwich food tray and a paper bag full of macarons! On the background is a part of the rare prize from the hamster gacha: blue hamster home from an accessory pack. I got lucky and got that on my first try before I even had a hamster! From the same pack came the hamster wheel below.

Here Sway’s piggy bank and D-LAB’s brown skunk observe the running wheel training. Both of them are from the gachas as well. Everything in the surroundings that I didn’t name to be from The Arcade is a part of a birthday fest scene by Garden of Dreams. Tables and seating and noms, birthday cake with text-change, couple and single dances, balloons… it fit the hamster-life perfectly.

You can begin your attempts to weasel into the always-full Arcade here. If you want something very specific and seem to have a bad luck with the gachas, join their group for trading, it’s very handy.
