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 Secrets of Fae Magic

“Let me tell you a secret,” the lavender fae whispered. “Let me tell you how we fae fly.” She paused, taking to air without as much as a flicker of her petal-covered wings. “The wings have nothing to do with it. Not anymore.”

“We fae can draw in ambient energies of imagination, we breathe it in, sense it in our surroundings like sunlight on skin. Just like daystar warms us, imagination and inspiration give us power.”

“We channel it and transform it into magic of another kind, of lights and music, of flight and sparkles, and most importantly; we channel it into dance. We laugh, dance, fly, live. They are the same.”

There’s no better place to learn to fly and dance than the Fairelands. Fantasy Faire invites you to indulge and experiment with transformations, with magic of inspiration and imagination.

Space Bunny: Guardian of Fluffzoid 8

The thing about the space bunnies of Fluffzoid 8 that isn’t mentioned to the tourists is that their leaders are shapeshifters. One moment a fluffy hoppy thing of bright colours, the next a guardian female of telekinetic powers strong enough to toss trespassers into orbit.

fluffzoid1bs

They take their job of guarding their smaller kin seriously: the majority of the bunnies are unable to shapeshift and simply enjoy their curious lives on Fluffzoid 8 sniffing, nuzzling and flopping about to enjoy the suns in the turquoise grass.

fluffzoid3bs

What is widely known, however, is that not one single bunny has been taken off-planet in the known galactic history. There are continuous attempts of course, ranging from official zoo and research expeditions to downright pet poaching. They all fail.

fluffzoid2bs

Therefore the only way to pet a space bunny is to travel to Fluffzoid 8, follow the safety regulations, bring treats and behave yourself. You never know who is hiding underneath that teal fluff and wiggly nose.

The Legacy of Maul skin by Fallen Gods Inc. is available in We Love RP and the hair by Olive (Sweetpea) can be won in this round’s Arcade. The outfit by r2 is not made for mesh bodies and does not have any appliers, I simply wore it over Maitreya’s Lara and alphad a teeny tiny bit on top. It worked otherwise fine but the boots clipped slightly around thighs in most poses. The body suit and gloves are available in Collabor88 right now.

The Goblin Queen

“More loots. That’s what it’s all about, you know, being a Queen. You get to choose first from everything’s that’s raided, stolen, scavenged and generally looted and pillaged all over.”

goblinqueen3bs

“See my helmet? From the leader of some fancy wing zooming folks …somewhere. If not a leader, at least an officer. At least it looks like it, yah? Freaking fanciest thing I’ve ever worn, had to have at least ten sticky-handed gobs kicked in the trenches for trying to claim it first, the ingrates.”

goblinqueen2bs

“The sword? From some barbarian fellow. Made a lot of noise, was practically naked, completely not poison-dart-proofed. ‘s heavy like seven hells, but it looks impressive!”

goblinqueen1bs

“The important thing is to make sure you have fancy boots, tallest helm and a lot of magic on your side. ‘s what they respect: big helmets and shiny footwear. ‘n some blood magic goes a loooong way.”

This post is befittingly about the Fantasy Faire Blogger Challenge: My New Shiny. Before this Faire I had never heard of LURE, Fallen Arms or Cole’s Corner, all of which are new shinies for me. I’m especially recommending catching the upcoming original music and particle show by ColeMarie Soleil, the creator of Cole’s Corner. The encore of her breathtakingly enchanting performance will take place in Ichi-go Ichi-e on Sunday, May 3rd at 12-2pm.

You can find Eclectica and Cole’s Corner in Ichi-go Ichi-e, Alegria Studio in Aurora, Spyralle and Wasabi Pills in Odyssey, *~*HopScotch*~* in Poppetsborough and LURE and Fallen Arms in Tangleshimmer Grove.

The Glass Prison

What brought the curious fauna to the library window of the Nautilus? There was always some sealife in sight, possibly just passing by, possibly trying to figure out what the great metal beast really was.

glassbetween1bs

Did they find the bizarre instruments and objects rare treasures, like the items humans hunt from the bottom of the sea, things that to the sealife are perfectly common and unimportant?

glassbetween3bs

Or were they there to gaze at their captured kin, forever taken from them in their tiny display cells, locked away from the world, all for science?

glassbetween2bs

Or perhaps they were there to say hello, to greet the prisoners and to try and communicate with the strange metal beast, to see if it’d release what it took. Sadly, no matter how well they fluttered and shifted, Nautilus never replied.

A Tattered Page is still diving deep in the oceans with Captain Nemo, this round is focused on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. You can find all the items in the post from A Tattered Page Library.
