The Between is Breached

“Tell me, minions mine, what news from the Border, what word from the Threshold, what whispers from the Between?”

“O Mistress Most Magnificent, tonight is the Night: the Border opens, the Threshold is crossed, the Between breached. The cards so pronounce, the runes declare, the moons of nether shine upon the Door.”

“Witness then, my vicious vouboos, witness and rejoice: it is time to summon spirits to wander the waking world. Upon my call they shall come, my words they shall heed, my will they shall follow. The mortal world shall feel their presence as they walk its streets: truths among lies, surreal realities amongst disguises, hidden in plain sight. 

Each step they take draws shadows from human hearts, each inhale of stolen breath drains courage, each bastion of rationale besieged by doubt, assaulted by belief older than this newly-found love of facts.”

“Their hearts fill with dark whispers and undeniable certainty that there is something near them: behind them in the room, in the dark corner of the street, under the bed, just out of sight but so certainly there they can hear the breath that is not drawn. Their hearts become ours. This night, this night when the Between is breached.

This night they know that underneath the fairest of Ariels lies Caliban awaiting. This night the nether realms are empty, for their creatures all walk amongst you.”

Magnificent masquerade this Halloween: keep your eyes open, pay attention to the corner of your eyes. Who knows what you might see.

Spring Secrets


“But how do the eggs get into the hooman world?” Cheepy the Third inquired. “We work hard all year with the eggs and flowers and butterflies and the exact right tone of yellow, and then one morning they’re just gone!”

“It’s the Guardians of Spring Secrets,” chirped Squee the Fifth. “Once we’re aaalmost ready, they send out someone to check our work and when they approve they’ll magic the eggs away, just like that! One wiggle of whiskers and swoosh!”


“Not just a swoosh,” Goldiedots the Guardian spoke up, startling the chick workers. “It takes careful calibration of each bush and hiding spot and extremely patient channeling of spring energies. But that-” He paused for a moment, the official tone changing into an excited squee as he hopped next to the tiny bird and egg tree. “Whoooo did this one? This is brilliant!”

Cheepy the Third plopped down next to the Guardian, shamelessly proud. This year spring would be better than ever! The sun would be brighter, days warmer, birds more melodious and bunnies hoppier. It wasn’t easy to make the perfect spring, but by the Royal Tailfeathers of the Jazz Chicken, it was satisfying!


The spring in Second Life would not be a proper spring without the Easter Hunt in Magic of Oz. Go pick up your egg basket and collect your prizes in Magic of Oz! You can read about how the hunt works and preview the prizes here.

Waltz with Lost Spirits

It is the night of celebration, the night of festivities, the night of freedom. The doors are open, the portals calling, movement from one realm to another as easy as breathing: even for those who do not draw breath anymore.


The music twists within like a golden spiral of dance steps older than time. Left, right, across the border of reality into another, hop to next one, shapeshift, disguise, mold, become: dance.


It is the night when everything is normal and accepted and one can ride skeletal steeds through ballrooms, the night when one can waltz with lost spirits and indulge in the sensation of flesh once more.


It is the night when we all dance, we creatures of grey realms, celebrating the return of flesh and spirit once more. This is Halloween.

The True Meaning of Nomfniti

“So it’s a party about fishies?” The smallest bunling was a tad confused and wiggled his whiskers questioningly.

“Yas! See, in fin…iti. Stuff. But who else has fins? Has to be a fish party!” The Bunling Who Knows Letters nodded.


“But what if it’s another of those tricksy hooman words that mean other things? Like mermaids that don’t really do any cleaning?” The smallest bunling was not convinced. He eyed the letters on the paper dubiously.

“Nonsense, they like fishies! Maybe it’s a shark! Grrrman must like sharks, so it’s a shark party!”

“Why is there all stars and sparkles, then? They’re not very fishy.”

“Sparkly space sharks! FLYING sparkly space sharks!” The Letter Knowing Bunling was now hopping up and down with excitement.


The smallest bunling never got to finish his next line, because it was at that exact moment that the squirrel dropped down from the tea zeppelin.


“It meeaaaans-” He started and twirled a flourish with a magnificent tail wave. “-all-time! In-fi-ni-ti. All-time. Ever and ever. No ends, no stops, just more time, always more time.”

Silence fell as the newly suggested translation was carefully considered. Heads tilted, ears rose and flopped, whiskers wiggled.

“It doesn’t sound like all-time. It still sounds fishy.”

“Why doesn’t it just say all-time, then?”

“What about the space sharks?”

“How can you be sure?”

“I’m sure it’s space sharks!”

“I asked the Ladybun!” The squirrel lay down the triumph card. There was no arguing with that, if the Ladybun had said so, then it must be true. All the critters knew this.


Another long moment of whisker-twitching took place. The smallest bunling rubbed his paws over his face for a moment, caught an ear and nosed it thoughtfully.

“So it’s an all-time party. Pretend-all-time party. Party like it has no stop?”

“Maybe it has no stop, Grrrman is magi.. matsi…matsish… he does magic!” The bunlings continued to have trouble with the word ‘magician’, but it never stopped them from thinking it’s a fun word.

More silent head tilting occurred until the smallest bunling tilted his head so much that he tumbled over. “…if he could do that, ‘m sure there’d be other things done with it, too.”

“Like stop winter?” The squirrel tapped his nose knowingly, then glanced around at the eternal summer meaningfully. A collective gasp rose from the critter pack, paws pressed to mouths in shock.


“…if he can do that, he could also make it nom-time forever!” Addler, the otter butler, flailed his short paws in sudden divinely delighted revelation.

All the ears suddenly pointed upwards like a forest of fresh saplings.



“This is the best party ever!”

“Let’s serve noms!”

“‘n flags! Must share nomyeys!”


As crayons were rolled out and excited critter chatter filled the meadow, only the Bunling Who Knew Letters stayed sitting down. He had really wished to see a sparkly flying space shark. It took several strawberries and a whole banana to get him back in the mood, but when he did, he declared the whole party to be a complete Nomfniti and a new celebration was born.

When the critters heard that Alia would feature his friends at the Fallen Gods Inc. 8th Anniversary Festival, they immediately decided it meant they were going to feature, too. You can find them serving noms (just click to receive a piece) and peddling yeyflags on the rooftop garden in Selidor. They’re surrounded by an amazing amount of creativity, wares from over 40 creators. Come join the fun and take a spin in the balloons nearby!

Major Arcana: The Empress

She is the Mother, the Lover, the Goddess. She is wrapped in a wealth of luxuries, in abundance and opulence. She brings with her care and nourishment, the birth of art and creativity, of connections and happiness. She is the Empress and she governs Life.


In her footsteps the world blooms, ideas take root and hearts grow stronger. At her touch the nature celebrates in the richness of summer both in spirit and matter.


For all things stagnant she brings new hope, new sparkles and sensuality, new reasons to laugh, new reasons to reach out to others. Even better reasons to reach out to ourselves and awaken.


Within her lies the mystery of the feminine, from the pleasures of passion to the joy of play. From the nurturing protection to generous sharing of the world.


She is the Empress. May we all be so fortunate as to have her influence our lives, may we all dare to step forward to meet her and embrace her teachings. 

The whole look was inspired by the makeup by Fallen Gods Inc., which in turn was created for the Create Your Own Tarot event. It’s a relatively new event, going through the Major Arcana card by card. This round is all about The Empress.

The surroundings are completely by The Looking Glass, hailing back to this spring’s Fantasy Faire and Ichi-go Ichi-e sim, plenty of which is now available in the main store. The little sakura fairies are a group gift, even! Both the headdress by deviousMind and the robe by =Zenith= are gacha prizes from past events. I know deviousMind has the gacha in their main store and I’d trust =Zenith= adds hers eventually, too.

Blogger Challenge: My New Shiny

“Do try these eggs,” the nixie boy said. “They’re from creatures that live only here in the Blackwater Glenn. The snail is especially tasty.”


“…things look swirly,” the rainbow fairy exhaled after having a nibble. “‘n funny coloured. Oh look, there’s glowing spirals dancing in the air!”


“Just you wait… a few moments more and things are even brighter,” the nixie boy smirked. The helper hare raised his lantern in acknowledgment and agreement.


And then… and then everything went really swirly and colourful and strange. Blackwater Glenn had a new mushroom growing within it.


Take heed when traveling in the Glenn, don’t touch glowing mushrooms and never, ever eat snacks offered by tricksy nixies!

There’s only few more days to go of this year’s Fantasy Faire, so I decided to do one of the challenges. Slightly embarrassing if I wouldn’t, since I set them all. All of my posts are pretty much Faire Folk, but this one is about new shinies: shops that are new to the blogger or thought to be new to the reader. As my genuine new shiny I present to you Polenth’s Mushporium, a shop that sells only mushrooms! Tiny avatars for the silly ones and beautiful landscaping ones for the serious people. You can find the shop in Wiggenstead Mooring. I’d also like to point out Gwen’s Hearth that sells noms of many kinds and many sizes and AnkleBiter that sells wonderful wares for the petites, both can be found in Sanctum.

The rainbow fairy petite by Fallen Gods Inc., the petite accessories and wings by AnkleBiter and the dubious nixie-offered nom by Gwen’s Hearth are all available in Sanctum. The nixie boy statue and the helper hare by meadowWorks are in Blackwater Glenn and the tiny shroomie avatar and the big purple shrooms in the last picture are from Polenth’s Mushporium in Wiggenstead Mooring. The rest of the scene and mushrooms are by The Looking Glass. The pictures were taken in Blackwater Glenn, but they also do sell the glowy mushrooms in their store in Blackwater Glenn.
