The New House, And Other Little Details
From Gwyneth: My darlings, one of the Awenian details I’ve been fussing over for months, possibly longer, is what I and Nathaniel will use for our official residence. The spot was already chosen: a small island with a rocky cliff edge, atop which we could view the rest of Awenia at our leisure. But it… 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
It’s never an ordinary walk, is it…
From Friðrós: Well, Her Majesty will want to know about this. So I should document it, I guess. I have a little camera, and Viska’s along with me, so she can help me take some photographs: Huldufólk, much as I wish it weren’t so, aren’t great with technology unless we’re in a Realm that’s bound… Continue reading
Sorcery, & Protection
If anyone every asked me whether I’d choose Swords or Sorcery, given the choice (no-one ever did!), it’s a foregone conclusion I’d choose Sorcery. I mean, do I look like a Swords faery to you? Of course both paths have their advantages, and it’s always a smart idea to have ties with those who follow… Continue reading
In just a few hours, Enchantment’s Twisted Fairy Tales round will be over.
I’ll be honest with y’all: it’s been a month for The Author. She would like you to know that attempting to sell a house from a long way away is no easy task, that illness sucks, and that she will be taking some time off to attempt to re-engage her blogging mojo after this post.… Continue reading
Stories … for children, you say?
I have been called many things, I grant you, but “safe for children” is not among them. That said, it remains that here we are together, and here you are, deciding whether to follow me or turn around and go home. Now, I could be my usual self and tell you that following me would… Continue reading
… Going Somewhere?
From The Author: So, COVID sucks. This is the first time I’ve had it, although I know people who’ve been infected as many as four times, and while I’m no longer testing positive, I’m still exhausted. That’s why there’s no story with this photograph: it’s been on my mind for days and I only just… 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
An Enchanting Midsummer
From The Author: You know, nothing makes my little pagan heart go flippity-flippity more than the prospect of visiting a shopping event where there will be lots of magical stuff to look at! Once again, Dark Passions Events, headed by the super-creative and super-lovely BCreative Wilde of Eventyra, have delivered a Midsummer Enchantment to help… Continue reading
The Work Continues
As the sun rises over Awenia in its still-incomplete form, I’ve been thinking about the Realm Rebuild and why it’s so important to me. First of all, Awenia continues to be a popular tourist destination, and I want to make sure our visitors always get an authentic experience. I mean, I’m always thinking about that;… Continue reading
