We Lost One
From Gwyneth: That’s how Brán put it when he told me. ‘We lost one, Your Majesty’. When he told me who it was, of course I rushe to the Library. Now, I probably hadn’t thought to tell you about my Chimerical Librarians, because the Library isn’t officially open yet, so there’s been no need to… Continue reading

Nesting in Nysaris
From Gwyneth: There’s something about Nysaris that invites folk in. And I don’t mean the usual Faire, ‘Welcome! Everything is for sale’! invitation. No; there is something far deeper inside Nysaris, a city built around a goddess of hope. The Realm had such a Classical Greek atmosphere that I was surprised to find myself in… Continue reading
The Storyteller of Shimmering Fen
From Gwyneth: Some Faires, this doesn’t happen, but most it does. I’ll be in a Realm, and I’ll meet one of the inhabitants and learn their stories, or I’ll just get a strong feeling about something, and then for a few hours I am suffused with the essence, not of that person, but of someone… Continue reading

Only the rocksWould welcome you. Like I said: wear your wings. Continue reading

There’s even a film festival these days. And … Did I… Continue reading
From Gwyneth: I don’t mind handling the various diplomatic responsibilities of my role. I knew these would be a reality when I decided to create a Realm that would be a bridge between the Fae Realms and the more mundane worlds out there. Still, particularly when the diplomatic season is just starting to heat up… Continue reading
From Gwyneth: I won’t say it’s my favourite time of the year, because that would be playing dice with the seasonal gods and spirits, but I do love high summer. And in as seasonably attuned a Realm as Awenia is, that means the world is teeming with life. And around, and around, and around turns… Continue reading
