The voyeur. – Collabor88 and Dark Style Fair

She fluttered her wings restlessly as she heaved a sigh, looking down over the edge of the cloud. The flicker birds played around her, swooping and chasing each other. They flashed their tiny flames through the fog of the early morning light. Absentmindedly, she motioned towards them to calm down. But it was a wasted gesture, as flicker birds do not listen, not to fae, not even to gods. Annoyed, another sigh snuck through her lips as her eyes remained on the ground far below.

“Silly humans,” she thought with a giggle. Her laughter tinkled like a wind chime and tickled the bellies of the flicker birds. The birds continued their acrobatics in the air with each other, but with more vigor. She shook her head in disbelief, another round of giggles freeing itself from her belly. “Oh, The stories they tell down there! Do they really believe such things?” With a deft motion of her wrist, she closed the gap in the cloud beneath her, hiding the world below from her view. “Humans really do believe the silliest of things,” she laughed again, at no one in particular. “Science, they call it,” she said with a final shake of her head.

Minion.

When the first shards of hazy, golden light started to break through the window panes and scattered themselves across the floor, he would be there. She didn’t know how he got in and as many times as she tried to wake and meet his arrival, she was never capable of doing so.

Though he never spoke, he told her things. And many would say she summoned him through magic, but it was most certainly the other way around. The dark fae was his minion, and she listened well to his commands. She was efficient and precise in a way the crow would have never expected. The fae’s power was now his, and she was simply a vessel to be emptied.

An ancient magic. – Anniversary round of We Love Roleplay!

The gentle tinkling of the baubles and lanterns on her staff whispered her arrival to anyone around. Not that anyone was around in the forest, except the beasts to whom she spoke. People called her a lunatic, but they did not hear the things the beasts said. Perhaps, they simply did not listen. She listened. She listened intently. She listened to the trees screaming, too. She listened to the underbrush’s quiet but anxious murmur under the canopy of the frightened old trees. She listened to the soft, warm earth groan with each step she took. She listened to the winds gossip about far away lands of which she knew nothing. “Maybe I am a lunatic,” she pondered her sanity and the sanity of others as she marked the dark surface of her skin with magical runes. “How could I not be? Who can listen to the world cry out for help in every moment and not be driven to madness?”

As she made her way through the depth of the forest, the golden dragon flies gathered around her and chittered in her ear. They heard the winds’ gossip, too. The elf could feel their fear in every nervous flutter of their delicate, filigree wings. They sheltered themselves in the magic that crackled around her, bursting from the core of her ancient power.

But the other elves were oblivious to it all. Too long had they lived away from the forest. Too long were they comforted in homes built out of the carcasses of their friends. Logs piled around them and hid them from Nature. The carcasses had become a barrier intended to protect them from Nature. The same Nature which had previously protected them for centuries. They now prefered the soft comfort of feather beds to the soft warmth of a mossy hill.They preferred drinking from wells instead of a cool, flowing brook. They preferred to grow their food in cultivated fields and raise the beasts as slaves rather than to eat what the earth provided naturally and freely. She looked down at the village of elves in disdain. To her, they were merely human now.

During this round of We ♥ Roleplay, Enfant Terrible did what they do best…lovely filigree work. Their detail is always stunning and this staff and these dragonflies are no different. It also comes with this panty and bra set with a sarong style skirt.

I am wearing and old Glam Affair drow skin. It never had Maitreya Lara appliers, so I converted the lola and phat azz appliers to omega appliers. I love the contrast of the gold makeup around the eyes. Glam Affair did release new fantasy drow skin at We Love Roleplay this month as well as applier for the Lelutka head. You may want to go give them a whirl.

The Peacemaker – Anniversary Round of We Love Roleplay!

In a flash of light, the Peacemaker arrived. Her power was forged in a treaty between two lands centuries before. They had long forgotten the treaty and long forgotten her power. It was her burden to enforce the peace treaty which was written after the soil was soaked in the blood of young men who were promised honor and glory. Young men who knew nothing of honor or glory, but knew pain and horror well. It was the peacemaker’s job to ensure that farmer’s fields were not turned into battlefields, that modest homes were not converted into infirmaries, and that young men were not turned into soldiers. Today, her power would be remembered.

We Love Roleplay has opened for a new round. This round is particularly special because it is their 2nd anniversary. There are so many goodies to snatch up. You won’t wont to miss them. Tableau Vivant released this gorgeous hair which is layered with horizontal plaiting on the back. It is really beautiful. And this dress from Moon Amore is absolutely perfect. It reminds me of She-Ra, which is pure awesomeness, bloglings!17089000229_3248a81087_o

Legends are lies masking truths.

Fairy tales and legends are often told as stories which present truths or morals of a sort. They provide lessons to be learned, we are told.

The story of Little Red Ridinghood presents interesting morals. It preaches that we should obey our parents. Red is to stay on the path as her grandmother advised. However, it is this oversimplification of moral tenets that is usually problematic. Not only do we want to instill in children (and in people) that you should follow good advice and listen to those who have more experience or knowledge than you in a particular field, but conversely we also want people to follow their own path, create their own destiny, and learn to think independently. It is the strange gray line between these two goals that is difficult to navigate, and the story provides no moral guidance in this difficult gray area.

Not only does the story provide little practical moral advice, but it could actually instill xenophobia. There is a contrast in the story of the safety of the village where Red’s grandmother is or from whence Red comes and the dangers of the forest. We imagine a dark and frightening forest (it is a German tale, afterall). Not only is the dark unknown forest dangerous but so is the stranger to whom Red speaks. Teaching “stranger danger” to children is very common. Although, interestingly enough most of the horrors that children endure are not from strangers but from family, friends, and others in the child’s community.

The oversimplificaiton of moral tenets may actually do more harm than good. It is important to understand that morality/ethics is a complicated field and thinking about our actions and reflecting upon the right decision is much more important than strict adherence to any particular rule–because this is how people actually live and must live ethically in a complicated world.

Luckily for you this tangent and this photo were brought to you by the coinciding of two events serendipitously. The first is this lovely hooded gown by Junbug, which is just as beautiful as everything else that Juno Mantel creates for us. The dress is at Fantasy Faire right now in an RFL vendor, which means part of the proceeds are donated to Relay for Life. Fantasy Faire ends tonight at midnight SLT, so be sure to hop, skip, or dance over there wantonly and show your support for both Juno and RFL before it closes. The other event was my good friend Freddiiee purchasing this Niramyth wolfkin avatar. Now when I have a riding hood dress sitting in my inventory and my friend excitedly comes to me to show me their new werewolf avatar, there is really only one thing a girl like me can do. Take fairy tale photos!

Along with the beautiful gown from Junbug, Muse has lovely flowers adorning her wrist from Naminoke. These flowers are being released tomorrow at the opening of the May round of We Love Roleplay. This is their 2rd year anniversary, which means tons of wonderful things are being released. Don’t forget to stop by this month and wish them a happy anniversary by emptying out your coin purse!

Like a sir.

If you actually caught me in world, you might be surprised to see what I wear on a regular basis. Though you may find me as a fairy or other fantastical creature, you are more likely to find me in lingerie. Corsets are a secret love of mine, and I impulse buy them like cheap chocolate at the supermarket counter. Luckily, corsets make me look prettier than chocolate, bloggettes. Another favorite of mine is pairing panties with suit jackets/blazers. I find the juxtaposition of business with the intimacy of panties and garters intriguing. So, when No. 7 sent me this adorable moustache lipstick, I had a clear vision for showing off a side of me on this blog that I often neglect.

No. 7 sent me a few things for Fantasy Faire, all of which are delightful, but this lipstick really struck a chord with me. I like the play on gender while still maintaining femininity. Not only is it adorable, it is part of the Fantasy Faire Hunt and is, therefore, free (with the purchase of the hunt HUD).  Hunt information can be found here. This lipstick comes as an installer for the TMP mesh heads and as an applier for the Lelutka mesh heads. No tattoo layer is included for system heads.

The ritual.

I’m not exactly sure how this post came about. It is quite a bit darker than what I generally prefer. It began with this lovely purple Soul skin and Even Tide dragon scales. It is the first time I have used a Soul skin before and it is really very lovely. Generaly, I don’t use many fantasy colored skins. I tend to use realistic tones or very pale tones, and periodically a drow tone. However, this Soul skin was well done and pairs lovely with the dragon scales. The skin is also a nice even tone, creating the perfect template for a few contrasting makeups.

Apparently, it is a new month for skins for me. I change my skins constantly but often use the same designers. However, this month at We Love Roleplay, Mudskin also released this lovely soft skin. She is so sweet that I decided Piggy (my alt) needed it.

Fantasy Faire is lovely and We ♥ RP is still going strong. So, if you need some new fantasy items, you know where to shop, bloglings.

This skin by Soul and the scales by EvenTide are just a couple things you should pick up.  (Click on photos to visit my flickr.)
