The Gods of Sand, Stone and Gold

Gold1bs

There is a place within the Fairelands made out of sand, stone and gold. It glows under the blazing sun, lazy breeze bringing in scents from the desert.

Gold2bs

Sand swirls in patterns against the columns, an embrace of hot air surrounding the ancient stone, brushing against the hieroglyphs as to write its own story.

Gold4bs

Gods form out of the heat: gods of black marble and gold, gods of desert and river, gods of life and death. They stand guard against the disruptions of time, their stone shapes wrapped in eternity.

Gold3bs

There is a place within the Fairelands called The Golden Delta. Won’t you come over and visit?

Fantasy Faire is still open this weekend, Sunday is the last official day. If you haven’t yet visited, it’s time to go!

The Golden Dawn

It has arrived again, the change of number, the resolutions and promises, decisions and devotions. For a moment everything seems new and fresh, full of possibilities. The new golden dawn of unknown.

There’s no knowing what it’ll be filled with, what it’ll entail, what joys or sorrows. No knowing, just plenty of wishes, hopes and plans. For this one moment everything seems possible. This year we’ll climb over all the obstacles to plant our flags on that One Achievement we all dream of: happiness. The decision makes us feel good, makes us stronger, the realization everything is possible, always, still possible.

goldendawn2es

The one thing we miss in this grand scene is the simple truth that every dawn is a new one. Every day ready to be a font of happiness, rich of joy and fulfillment. Once we manage that, once the delight of decisions fills us every day, then our dawns will truly be golden and covered with genuine riches of the heart.

Happy New Year, may it be full of fun, delight and happiness!

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 Blue Lady of Gentle Waves

Dream Guardians come in many shapes and forms, sizes and temperaments. The Blue Lady has carried many names in many cultures, times and places: Soft Singer. Hazebringer. Sway of Serenity. Calm Caller. The Sailor of the Gentle Waves.

dreamguardian1csShe is the one you call when you sing a lullaby, the one you hope will come to you when you take a deep breath and wish to find peace in your dreams. Her presence soothes all the daily worries, lets them fade into the blue haze, lets your mind drift freely and rest calmly.

dreamguardian2csShe will sail on the river of dreams for as long as you are with her: always sailing for the destination is not of importance, only the gently rocking motion of the boat and the lullaby of lapping waves.

dreamguardian3csNo nightmare dares to approach her. They know that near her even they would lose their power and drift to peaceful sleep at her feet, too content to remember the horrors they had conjured up. So she sails with her peaceful passengers that come and go as they reach for her in their dreams and fade back to the waking world well-rested: sails and smiles.

The Blue Lady’s Ceridwen gown by Evie’s Closet and the Maris headdress and necklace (gacha) by GSpot are available in the current round of We Love Roleplay.

What If?

It is the night for dark secrets, mysteries and myths. It is time for imagination to dwell in all the frightful spots at the back of your head, indulge in the startles, channel your mundane concerns into the fear of unknown and improbable, with that faint little voice within asking ‘what if?’ 

bloodhostess2csIt is time for delicious treats, delicious thoughts. Make your fears tangible, taste them on the tip of your tongue, reach for more, find ways to combat them by becoming one yourself.

bloodhostess3csTake comfort in the knowledge that soon the visitation will be over and everything will be back to safe normalcy: all the monsters will be back under your bed or in your closet, haunting you only in the moments of your weakness.

bloodhostess1csBut for now, tonight: dance with demons, inhale the fear, let the quiet what-if whisper grow into a roar: What if it is all true? Why couldn’t it be? After all, This Is Halloween.

The skirt by SAKIDE is a part of a special Obscure Dress in her Halloween House, the horns by Cerridwen’s Cauldron can be won in a gacha, the eyes by Pin Me Down are available in Flux, and the posture collar and necklace by [The Forge] are from Horrorfest.

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 Grey Lady

“Don’t go near the briars or the Grey Lady will get you. She makes people fall into the thorns, see something shiny there, reach in and suddenly the thorns move! Just to draw blood. She feeds off of it, you know.”

greylady1cs“You’re being silly, there’s no such thing as the Grey Lady, it’s just an old story. I read that it’s based on some poor woman fleeing a warband into the briars, getting stuck and- …well, dying. Of course people would spin a story about it, she’s hauuuunting the briars, looking for revenge!”

greylady2cs“Well, if you read about it then it’s definitely true! She lived here, she died here, wouldn’t you haunt the place after a death like that? I know I would! Uses her ripped off jewelry as bait, or maybe she’s just still searching for them…”

greylady3cs“Yeah, sure, maybe in a horror movie. Ghosts don’t exist, don’t be such a scaredy-cat. …ohey, look, there’s something shiny in there!”

The briars by Cerridwen’s Cauldron, the skin by Fallen Gods Inc. and the gown by Senzafine are all available in the current round of We Love Role-play. The hair by Clawtooth is available in Collabor88 and the eyes by Pin Me Down in Flux.
