Before the Ball in Isles of Tarrin
We planned to attend the Faire’s glamorous masqued ball, but truth be told, large gatherings are making me a bit anxious these days. Of course, there are many satellite parties, so the Fairchilde was our choice for later in the evening. It only made sense that I spent my day before the ball in the… Continue reading
From The Author: Probably one of my favourite things about blogging in Second life, or it might really be my favourite, is what I think of as the circle of inspiration. I find inspiration in the wonderful things I get to build stories around here, and in so doing, I get to call attention to great creators.… Continue reading
This whole “model” lark is great fun! After becoming the SpokesFae (their term, not mine) for Bhanél‘s Mad, Bhanél decided they liked the image I was portraying: a real Fae Queen representing their product. So they’ve created a new fragrance, and they’ve based it on the Fae lifestyle their customers are so enamoured by. And, get this: It’s called Glamour. I’m… Continue reading
Invasion of the Steampunk Cats!
It was a pretty ordinary Friday night, the sort of Friday night I spend in Awenia when Nathaniel has business in Mysthaven. Ordinary, in that I was the last person out the pub. But some of the brownies and the other Sidhe and I had got into a debate about — do you know, I can’t… Continue reading
Freedom in the Pools of Ethuil
The Pools of Ethuil are one of the Realms in this year’s Faire that I come back to again and again. There is a serene and restful vibe there that I crave. There are so many beautiful places to relax in the Pools! But of course, I can never stay in one place for very long:… Continue reading
Sometimes, Realm-Hopping isn’t as straightforward as I pretend it is for those who can’t do it. You’ll never find two beings who travel between Realms and do it the same way unless one of them taught the other, and even then, the student’s method will evolve into something more personal, which they might teach to someone else,… Continue reading
The Stolen Child
Where dips the rocky highland Of Sleuthwood in the lake There lies a leafy island Where flapping herons wake The drowsy water rats; There we’ve hid our fairy vats, Full of berries And of reddest stolen cherries. Come away, O human child! To the waters and the wild With a faery, hand in… Continue reading
Glinda Could Have Fixed The Whole Thing, You Know.
I can’t stop thinking about this Wizard of Oz thing. So much so that I Realmhopped just to get a chance to re-watch the film on iTunes. And you know, I was right about Dorothy: my memories of her were indeed correct. She learns that she shouldn’t reach high and far. Poor kid. But Glinda. Wow,… Continue reading
More memories of my Welsh Granny, who was born in 1933. When she was ten years old, her mother and father took her to Cardiff for a weekend. In Cardiff, there was a cinema. This was the first time my Granny had ever been to the cinema. The film was The Wizard of Oz. I’ve already mentioned… Continue reading
We <3 Roleplay In November
So, here’s an unusual straight-up fashion blog from me. I’m trying to get back into the swing of blogging, so I thought I’d take a look around this month’s We Love Roleplay to see if I felt inspired. This round is low on fabulous dresses, but I did find a couple. I wanted to showcase… Continue readingAnalog Dog, Astralia, BentBox, Cae, Catwa, Deviance, Distorted Dreams, EMO*Tions, Empyrean Forge, Fashionably Dead, Ginger Line, Gor Con, IKON, Izzy’s, Les Encantades, Lumae, LumiPro, Maitreya, Moon Amore, Nathaniel, Oak Leaf Hair, Omega, Pink Fuel, Pumens, SLink, Solarium, Spyralle, Studio Skye, The Looking Glass, The White Armory, Things, Tia, We <3 Roleplay, Zibska
