Once Upon a Time…

…there was a small flight of dragonlings, the last five survivors of their kin. Their mother had bravely hidden them away before luring evil humans after her to save the dragonlings. Their big sister found them and brought them to safety to their aunt, who lived far away from others because she liked peace and quiet and… put that down. Right now.

dragonsitter3bsAlright, where were we… ah. The said aunt promised to look after her small nephews and nieces while their big sister went to hunt for proper food and- Those are not healthy, especially not before dinner, stop- …oh, so you paw-stamped and licked them all already? Very well. Just this once.

dragonsitter2bsThe young dragonlings were completely unaware of the tragedy they had faced and played around recklessly without a pinch of gratitude, I might add, and would certainly soon catch the melting sickness from all those candles if they do not stop pretending to be deaf and get out of there right this moment.

dragonsitter4bsIn the end their aunt accepted that her sensitive silence-loving ears would never stop ringing for the next couple of centuries and- …where did the fifth one go? I swear when I find you little rascals-

The Dragon Nest

The rumor was true: the elder frost dragon had managed to lay her last eggs before luring the hunters to a merry chase that drew them far away from the nest, a chase that ended with her life.

dragonwarrior1bsThe nest was a haphazard arrangement, the surroundings not even properly frosted over yet: she had been in a hurry. Some of the growth nearby was still green, the ground only iced over, no sign of a freezing blizzard or intricate icicle formations.

dragonwarrior2bsThe eggs glowed of stubborn, magical life, fragile as any beginning. Easy prey for a dragon hunter. Fortunately they will never share mother’s fate, not if I have anything to say about it.

dragonwarrior3cs“Come, little siblings. I will take you to desolate hunting grounds, far away from the humans until you learn the disguise and can pass off as them. Then we will return to completely different hunting grounds, my little brothers and sisters. Completely different ones.”

The pauldrons and armguards by [The Forge], the mask by ~Chimeric Fashions~, the dragonlings by ~Alchemy~, the horns by .{Rue}. and the waystone bench that worked as a nest by Cerridwen’s Cauldron are all available for discount in the new round of We Love Roleplay. The eyes by IKON are their latest group gift and the skin by .Birdy. can be won at The Arcade. The bamboos by Cerridwen’s Cauldron and the hair by Adoness are new releases.

Rotten Eternity

She was caught by the dark magic of the Hedge a long time ago, body dragged into the soil, trapped and wrapped in the thorny roots, soul slowly seeped into the orb with all the other prey the entity managed to catch in its greedy vines.

rotteneternity1bsRotting was surprisingly slow, almost subtle, the pulsing magic keeping the body operational. The other changes were more drastic: the claws, the horns, the bone structures growing out like thorns, like she herself was no more than a vine now.

rotteneternity2bsIf she still had had a mind of her own, she might have wondered if she would turn fully a part of the entity plant in time. Perhaps the staring eyes were all that was left from the earlier preys, now aware only enough to fulfill their observing function.

rotteneternity3bsBut no, there was no more wondering or thoughts: simply a function as slightly more independently moving part of the entity. The reaching, calling, tempting part of the extremely carnivorous plant.

The Rotten Drow skin by Fallen Gods Inc., Khor feet and hands by [europa], Eternity hair by Analog Dog, Oracle horn set by .{Rue}. and all the plants and the orb by Cerridwen’s Cauldron are available in the October’s round of We Love Roleplay that started today. Here’s your teleport to the event!

Red Reaper

Almost a superhero name. Or a villain. Depends on which side of the glaive you look at it. This particular reaper might have red-toned skin, sharp horns and armor fitting for any evil overlord’s guard, but maybe she’s changed her ways. Maybe she’s fighting both the preconceptions against demons and the evil overlord?

redreaper1csWhen you stop laughing and/or rolling your eyes I must admit that she does make an excellent member of the said evil overlord army. I’d imagine her and her company are sent out to finish the jobs the regular army doesn’t get done. Or possibly the job of pruning and punishing the army itself when they screw up. They will screw up, you know the evil overlord’s army always does.

redreaper2bsOn the bonus side: at least they’ll die looking at something pretty.

The armor by The Muses, the skin by The Plastik and the horns by .{Rue}. are all available in the current round of We Love Role-play Event that just opened today. The mask by [BlackPearls] can be won in the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and the hairdo by Alice Project can be purchased in the very last round of Zodiac. The glaive by [EZ] Weaponry comes with a colour change HUD so you can turn the weapon fit for the less evil characters as well.

Sea Orchid

Mermaids of tropical waters are never just blue or green tailed. They most definitely do not have pale human skin like some of their more traditional cold-water cousins. No, the tropical mermaids flourish and flaunt their colours like the local fish do.

seaorchid1csThey bloom amongst the coral reefs, flicker about near the surface, splash water with their tails at unsuspecting sailors. They are the orchids of the mermaid garden, full of strong colour combinations and surprises.

seaorchid2acsThey play, they dance, they explore. They collect random shiny things from wreckages, combine them with corals and fishbones, twine bright sea plants in their hair.

seaorchid4csThey are the sun-warmed water, the sound of friendly waves hitting the shore, the playful breeze on the surface, the current that sweeps you off your feet — or fins. They are the wavedancers, the laughter of the seas.

The original rigged mesh mermaid tails are a new release by The Muses, available in 24 different colour options. The hairdo by [Gauze] is one of their Hair Fair releases that you can find in their fair booth. The Ulani collar and hat by Zibska are a part of the The Gallery Gift Shop’s Second Anniversary. The half-mask is a group gift by Zibska.

The Primary Colours

Blue, red and green. In any order you like. In this case just different styles of the same feline-eyed woman.

blue1bsPerhaps she’s a chameleon-like creature, perhaps her colours reflect her moods. From hesitant and aloof to eager and aggressive to clever and coveting. All visible in her hair, in her eyes, even her nails.

red1bsTo think that the only colour code we humans have is the blushing or blanching. There could be so much more, so many useful things in skin and hair tones, in eye colours, perhaps even in textures, patterns.

green1bsIt makes one wonder how much of human cultures is based on being able to hide one’s feelings and thoughts from others and how very different everything would be if we couldn’t.

All the hairdos by Adoness are new releases for the Hair Fair, you can hop straight into the booth here. The skin, face tattoo and the collars are by The Plastik, who is having a half-off sale at the moment for her birthday. It ends on July 25th, so there’s still plenty of time to shop: perhaps when Hair Fair is full. The eyes by .{Rue}. and piercings and earrings by .:ellabella:. are discounted in the current round of We Love Role-play Event. The black hands are actually blends for Slink hands by Orc Inc, making it possible to use Slink hands and feet with any skin -if- you like a fantasy look of arms and legs being of a strong non-skin colour. Last but not least, the bracelets and armlets are a new release by [The Forge], gorgeous for both fantasy-historical styles and pure bad-assery.

Drywood Dryad

Already a bit slower in movement than the younger tree-spirits, the drywood dryad has lived a long time. Time and seasons, sun and weather have taken their toll and sometimes she contemplates digging her roots deep and letting her mind wander until she forgets all but the sun on her skin and the slow pulse of earth in her veins.

drywood1bsIt’s the flickering little specks of life that keep her awake, the fluttering sparks of energy, the visible, tangible, present parts of the cycle. Their calls for a mate, their dance that lasts less than a blink for a dryad, the ability to feel so keenly never ceases to intrigue her.

drywood2bsShe has watched and marveled at their ancestors, and the ancestors of those ancestors. They awaken a steady sensation of curiosity in her: curiosity and empathy. How dreadful it must be to feel so acutely, how dreadful yet so wonderful. She knows she can never fully comprehend them, but she never lets that stop her from caring. Or watching, always watching: the guardian of brief, full lives of woodland creatures.

The Drywood skin with Sacred War markings by Fallen Gods Inc. is currently at half price in We Love Role-play event. There’s a male skin as well for all the possible wood-puns you could ever make. I wore the included PG-layers with the skin as well as the separately sold prim parts that form the dryad outfit. The Grimalkin eyes by .{Rue}. can be found in the same event, as well as the poses by Musa.

Have you ever wanted a band shirt in SL, but knew that any band merchandise that you’d might be able to find would most likely not have any connection to the band nor have any sort of permission of theirs? Worry no more for World Goth Fair is here with 34 perfectly licensed band shirts!

licensed1bsAll the included bands have given their official written permission to use their band logos in these shirts. They are sold from gachas, all the funds go to Sophie Lancaster Foundation and the gachas are available only during the fair. There’s a separate gacha for men and women’s shirts, all the shirts are black (what other colours could we possibly need?), every prize includes all the sizes and there’s 34 different shirts to be won.

The band shirt gachas are available in both sims of World Goth Fair: Cursed and Port Seraphine. The skin by Jalwa and the pose and nails by Orc Inc can be found in Port Seraphine, the makeup by Pin Me Down, the pants by .{Rue}. and the choker and rings by House of Rain in Cursed. The Burn rings are in a gacha right next to the band shirt one.

Goth Bunnies

They come in many sizes and shapes. Sometimes even without any visible ears or tail. They have white skin (or fur), gothic coloured hair and clothes and a penchant to clap their hands at vampires, instead of running away like more sensible rabbits would.

gothbunnies1bsWho’s to say that bunnies cannot have tiny fangs as well? Or at least a preference for colours that are not pastels? Maybe there’s a secret bunny underground, opposing the damnable association to pink? Begone already, abomination unto the gods of colour!

gothbunnies2bsOne must remember though that no matter what colours a bunny wears or style she prefers, they cannot escape their true nature. You can cover them in black and blood-red, give them bad-ass weapons and observe them trying to fang-hiss while wiggling their noses, it’s no use: the cute is always there.

gothbunnies3bsYou cannot blame them, though. There are two defences a bunny can have: run fast or be too cute to kill. Have you ever tried to run in high heels or a gala dress? Did not think so.
