Feels Like Rain

I can remember that just a few days ago, I was excited about the organically growing Faerie around me. And I had a lively conversation with Dyisi about whether or not she hates me. And some other things. And I can remember that just a few days ago, I was excited about redecorating my beautiful treehouse and making the house on the island a beautiful place for Nathaniel and me to live. I can muster a little bit of excitement about the Great Faire, but there’s some fear in there as well. What if Mother replies and doesn’t want to see me? I don’t think I could bear it. Of course I’ve heard nothing from her as yet. But we live in hope? Not always.

Springtime.

I’m remembering that kind of feeling I used to get when we’d have a rainy spring in London. Don’t get me wrong: English spring is a beautiful season—if it’s not constantly grey and raining. And while it’s not constantly grey and raining here, it is often raining. I was told to expect this when I decided to relocate to the Pacific Northwest. Faerie’s weather, of course, doesn’t have to adhere to the island’s—but if I don’t consciously change it, here it seems to want to be just like White Owl. It’s beautiful, truly. And the greens are like nothing I’ve ever seen before. But it may be a little more work than I was expecting.

What would help me feel better, I wonder? Ice cream? Music? Great sex? Learning something new? Some combination of the above?

Only the Faire to look forward to.

Right now, it feels like I have only the Faire to look forward to. But that’s something. And I can’t get this idea out of my head; it’s a story about a raven Fae, nowhere near as vicious as Nemaine, and a little girl. And it has something to do with roses. I’ll figure it out. Maybe I’ll figure it out as soon as it stops raining.

With apologies to the monstrous and daunting songwriting talent of Randy Newman, of course. I changed only a few lines in the song, but I think it kinda works!

I don’t know what came over me: must be these Crazy and Cute Cat Slippers from Death Row Designs. They’re at The Crossroads

Putting it all together 

Gwyneth:

Today, I began working on my throne room for White Owl. I know: I’ll probably never get to use it, but it’s a good exercise in decorating, and I was bored.

Below is a photo of my new throne — the demifae are enjoying it, as you can see. I’ve also acquired two new kittens—not CaitSidhe, but honest-to-Goddess kittens! The one on my lap is called Skein, and the black one is Urðr. Of course, this means I’ll have to get two more kittens, since I can’t overlook the other principal Norns.

The throne itself is grown from a special spell provided by the Master Wizards at Hextraordinary. I found them at that most excellent shopping faire, We , and they delivered it for free! Of course, tree thrones are a bit hard and somewhat scratchy, and the Royal Bum cannot deal with that for long periods of time, so I added a bunch of throw pillows I picked up from a gypsy at a gacha Faire some years ago.


Of course, I had to call Nathaniel for his approval (he always approves, does my Beloved Consort), so I summoned a will o’ the wisp to get him there quickly. The will o’ the wisps seem to like me much better now; I can communicate with them easily. Then, I got sentimental and summoned Drysi as well—she’s the only one of my children who reliably comes when called—and she surprised me by showing up in a very fetching dress! Of course, she’ll be back to jeans and t-shirts as soon as she’s out of my presence, not that I mind her dressing up to please her Mother.


I thanked the will o’ the wisp when it returned, of course. And what a lovely feeling of oneness I had with it! I must investigate the Unseelie connection to wisps more carefully at some point.

I have more work to do here, of course, but what a joy it was to write this from my office, in another of my realms, and not have to appease the Luddite Goddess by hopping off to another Realm to access the internet!

Now, of course I have to decorate both the Residence and this official Receiving Area—I think we’ll call it The Atrium—for Yule. Which will keep me busy at least for a couple of hours. I do have the perfect tree in mind for Nathaniel. I hope he loves it.
