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?

In the Realm of Frost

winterarrives3bs

Every winter is born in the Realm of Frost, condensing from the nights of old, their lingering breezes and gusts of cold air. Some winters barely catch a touch of frost, others pack themselves full of snow. But all of them need to be broken free before they are born.

winterarrives2bs

The Frost Daughters estimate, evaluate and finally decide when a winter is ready to be freed. They keep an eye on how cold its sphere becomes, how active the glittering blue lights are, how big it grows.

When they feel it is ready, all it takes is a touch and the frost cracks open the shell that held the cold in check and the winter is ready to begin.

Dragons Dream

dragon-whelps-1bsWhat do dragons dream of? There are many theories and suggestions, many answers even from the drakekin themselves. Some claim that it’s gold, some say conquest, some higher planes of magic, perhaps simply the joy of flying.
dragon-whelps-2bsIt may or may not be all of those things, but one dream always returns: the one where they are whelps once more, just specks of magic floating around within their very own plane of slumber, the one where they live before they are born to a more physical form.
dragon-whelps-3bsThey remember their guardians and caretakers, the warm glow of golden magic that they so hard try to reproduce in their hoards. They remember the humanoid feminine beauty, one of the first things they ever see and therefore try to recapture.
dragon-whelps-5bsThey dream of the gentle sway of flora made of magic, feeding their existence with each radiant spark of colour. They remember fluttering their small wings, floating on the currents of arcane energy.
dragon-whelps-4bsWhat do dragons dream of? Gold and magic, beauty and flight. Dragons dream of beginnings, dragons dream of endings, dragons dream of eternity.

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.

Sword Day, Red Day

Red had traveled under many names, most of them either forgotten by now or branded into myths and legends. Having a mythical name meant these days simply that your parents had played Dungeons and Dragons as youngsters, so she preferred Red.

war1bs

Horses had changed to bikes, which in general meant they were much easier to fix than their predecessors had been. Sharp pieces of metal had turned to small blunt pieces of metal of beautiful velocity. The ring of swords had become the drums of guns.

war2bs

In all this time Red had never changed. She was always beautiful, always fiery, always tempting and glamorous. She was glory and fame, power and control, the beauty of fire calling you closer until you burn.

war3cs

She was all the reasons humanity had ever needed for fighting each other. She was War, and tonight she was riding to town.

New round of A Tattered Page has just started, this time focusing on Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. War is of course one of the Four Horsemen Bikers of the Apocalypse. The boots by Pale Empress and the helmet by Eclectica can be found in the ATP Library.

Twilight Delights

It’s strange to bid farewell to the cold lights and dark nights. Winter can be many things, but it is always familiar. It always encourages safety and comfort instead of whim and curiosity. It is also blissfully dark, the lights dancing within it more natural decor than a light source.

darkqueen1bs

Then suddenly the nights are not dark anymore, there’s nowhere to hide, the light has invaded and won the world. Even the creatures of the night have their share of the soft illumination, brushing against the pale skins and dark strands of hair.

darkqueen2bs

Cloaks and coats are removed, flower-scented air inhaled, warmth of the night experienced as the miracle that it is. There’s no greater magic than the one that returns life to us every spring.

darkqueen3bs

No greater magic than the one that turns the dark starlit nights into warm haze of twilight delights and brings forth the sun that never sleeps, the Magic of Summer.

World Goth Fair has just opened. This year the event takes place only in Cursed (the event area up in the air). The gown by Pale Empress, cloak by @->~ISD and the poses by [Black Tulip] are all available in World Goth Fair. The skin by Fallen Gods Inc. is a rare in the gacha at Fantasy Gacha Carnival and the crown by lassitude & ennui is available at The Secret Affair.

Dream and Play

We play. There is no night and day down in the depths, there’s just awake and asleep, dream and play. 

oceanica2bsSometimes we leap higher with our friends and companions, leap higher and witness the strange lands of the two-tailed people with their clumsy movements and strange sounds. 

oceanica4bsSometimes when the awake time up above gets really warm and the surface waters caress every motion like a lover, we approach the land to marvel at the beauty such clumsy creatures manage to conjure. Such halls, such statues!

oceanica1bs

My favourite spot is one of the stone-shaped hippocampi, a friendly creature whose spirit is slumbering in silence. I can feel him through the stone, basking in the sun. Perhaps one day he’ll awaken, rise up and leap back into the waters to play with us.

oceanica3bs

Perhaps one day the clumsy two-tailed creatures will do the same. Perhaps one day they’ll learn to breathe properly and join us. Perhaps one day we’ll play. Until then we will just visit: their lands, their halls, their statues and their dreams.

Fallen Gods Inc. released the new mer-people to frolic in the seas of the Fairelands: Oceanica skins come with a bunch of appliers, a fancy swirly-coloured mermaid tail that combines mesh and flexi and a mer outfit. The necklaces are a free gift right under the info board in the Fallen Gods Inc. Faire-store in Odyssey. You can also find mer poses by Musa from the same sim and the Yo Bailo poses in Wildehaven Marsh.

The unique double crown by Bliensen + MaiTai is from the last year’s Silent Auction and works as a reminder to go and check what there’s available this year! Silent Auction takes place in the Fairelands Junction, is already running (although more will be still added) and lasts until Saturday 5PM SLT. At that time the auctions close and the highest bidders win their items.
