Three Twisted Knots

Tales of the Fae Lands


Just Like Camp….

The Gypsy Davey:
The Gypsy Davey:

I dreamed I was in a yellow river, surrounded by glowing trees and the oddest assortment of detritus. I was up to my knees nearly in water, grateful and happy that my boots are water-resistant– got them at an outdoor shop when we were in some version or other of Boston a couple of months ago, and they’re so comfortable I don’t want to take them off.

A dream of water.
A dream of water.

It was one of those dreams it seemed hard to wake up from, and as well it was a dream in which I seemed awake. Lucid dream, I think that’s what it’s called. I couldn’t understand why I was slogging through all this water, and I willed myself to wake up.

When I came to, I was standing in a forest.
When I came to, I was standing in a forest.

When I came to, I was standing in a forest, completely alone. There was no sound save for the wind through the trees. I was fully dressed, and there was no sign of the vardo or the boys or the vineyard we’ve been working in for these last few weeks. What happened?

When I explored further into the woods, I found a camp site.

When I explored further into the woods, I found a camp site, recently used, with a fire all set up. Surely there must be someone here. Yet, when I explored the wood, I could find no one. Not a trace of men, though deer and boar seemed to be common. Rabbits, too: at least if I were stuck here for longer than a few days, I’d have a way to eat. I even found a water source; there was a spring a few hundred yards away from the fire site. Personally, I’d have made camp closer to the spring, but I wasn’t willing to move the whole camp just to prove the point.

So, unless there was trouble, I could comfortably stay here for some time.

So, unless there was trouble, I could comfortably stay here for some time. For some values of “comfortably”. There was a cache of blankets tucked away in a box near one of the logs round the fire, so bedding would be no problem, but I had only the clothes on my back and a little knife. Pity I wouldn’t be able to catch and kill a boar with just a knife; I quite fancy pork.

A lovely set of sims, even though it has some commercial buildings on it. I loved this watery landscape.
King’s Landing
A gorgeous RP sim set as you might imagine around the works of G.R.R. Martin. I saw some photos of it the other day, so I hopped over there and popped on an OOC tag to explore. The place was full of role-players, which is great for them but not so much fun if you need to use photo lights and stuff, so I found what appeared to be a quiet part of the sim where the was a nice, dense forest, and I set the story there.

Spiffy photos taken with the indispensible aid of my LumiPro. I never leave home without it!
