Elenora Escapes

Elenora became the last virgin, and by that I mean she was the last uninfected soul, untouched by the plague that ravaged her home in San Mora. This made Elenora a very wanted young lady and put a hefty price upon her head.She knew she had to flee her home. She peered around corners trying to be stealthy in her escape. Finally she was able to make a break for it on a day when the weather turned dismal, keeping the bounty hunters at bay, at least for now.

The Story of Elenora I


All through the following days she traveled through many different realms. The first she passed through was a bustling marketplace, where she could head the sounds of merchants selling their wares and elephants off in the distance. The next realm she wandered into was a pale watery land with colorful sea life who would lead up out of the water in their own aquatic dance. Still Elenora traveled on, into a lily pad strewn land full of frog. She made quite a few new amphibian friend here, but she still did not feel like she was far enough away from her pursuers. The next realm she landed in had a giant temple, where a goddess seemed to reach out for her with open arms. Elenora rested in the safety of the goddesses warm arms a bit before moving on yet again. The land that fell just beyond the temple was a proper old city, at least compared to where she had come from. She lingered her for a few days enjoying the canals and the string music. That was until a change in the the winds signaled that is was time for her to keep moving. Just when she thought she would have to sleep the night hidden in the bushes Elenora came upon beautiful village. This village was perfumed by the sweet floral scents of the flowers that grew there in abundance. This place was like a dream to her, one she wished she never had to awake from. However awake she did and onward she traveled, until finally she found it, the land she would call home. All the houses here were built into the hills, and as she walked Elenora looked into the window of one home and found it empty.

The Story of Elenora II


Elenora huddled into the far corner of the house for the night, promising herself she would properly take ownership of the home in the morning. It had been a very long time since Elenora had felt this at peace and after a while she felt right at home. Sadly she could never quite escape the feeling she was being watched...

Fantasy Faire and Me

I will start off by saying this is not my first Fantasy Faire to be blogging about. However this is the first year I have been more outgoing and frankly unafraid. Every creator, organizer, performer, you name it that I have encountered have been more than kind to the social awkwardness that is me. The first day I was finishing up some picture taking of the shopping sims before the Faire opened, being a blogger does have perks you know. All the sims are stunning and masterfully built. 


2017 Fantasy Faire - Fairelands



As I was dashing of my first post I was listening to the Fairelands radio stream. For a while there was a mini dance party happening on the deck of the Fayrchilde, the dragon ship on the Kakushi Pasu sim. I actually danced and interacted with people! After that I went walking the fairegrounds to Mudrana, where I realized I was a day early for an event, but still got to meet a wonderful storyteller. I stuck my foot in my mouth, but was luckily forgiven. I will claim exhaustion on that one.

The second day was a busy one! Pictures were taken and events were gone to. One of the events at the Faire this year that got my attention was Roleplay classes. It's something I have been interested in for a while now, but never knew where to start, or how to be a good roleplayer, so I thought. So I hit up the first roleplay class. It was quite informative and there were some roleplayers in the audience too!


Learning

That is me with the pink and white hair in case you were wondering. While I was at the class I met another roleplayer, by sticking my foot in my mouth...again. Noticing a pattern here? Anyway we got to talking and he was super helpful and while his avatar may have looked intimidating he wasn't. I am going to keep his name a secret because I don't want to ruin his street cred. Just look at this picture he was willing to take with me.

Phire and a Madman!

I finished off the day with a performance by the Misfit Dance and Performance Arts group. Okay if you have never seen them perform you need to see it. There were different sets and different music and different avatars dancing around. I took a bunch of pictures, but we would be here forever if I showed them all.

Misfit Dance and Performance Art

See what I mean about about adorable. They are kitties...as sailors...and a pirate! There may have also been sheep, spies, mice and an amazing grand finale. Those are just a couple of days at the Fantasy Faire for me this year. I will have more to share as the days go on. For not I need to get back I don't want to miss the next roleplay class!

Sadie the Pirate Lass

Sadie is a pirate lass, and she is a sneaky one at that. You see Sadie was under the protection of the Captain of the Sad Serpent, and he lets her get away with murder, sometimes quite literally. Listen these pirates are not the most plundersome of their ilk. Sadie is a big fan of the drink. When you are living on a sad little ship the drink is your friend. Sadie does not share well with others, she missed that kindergarten class I believe. She does have a refined palate and as such only drinks the most robust of ports. She thinks that the rum the other pirates on the ship drink is utter swill. As I was saying, Sadie does not share well so she hides away her bottles in the one place no one would look, an empty explosives barrel. Did I forget to mention Sadie is a cunning lass? I mean would anyone in their right mind go looking for a drink in a barrel marked EXPLOSIVE?

Sadie the Sneaky


After an extremely rough day out to sea Sadie is known to break into her stash and hit is hard. The only problem with this is that Sadie becomes a bit, well she become belligerent and volatile. She threatens battle with anyone that is willing to come near. Do you dare do battle with a soused, surly sailor lady?

A Misunderstanding

Once upon a time there was a sweet young lady named Lulabelle who lived near the woods. One day Lulabelle was having a picnic with her dear friend Doe. Doe was a deer, a female deer, and Lulabelle's best friend. They often had picnics in the woods where they would share treats of apples and pumpkin juice. Sometimes Lulabelle would bring other treats like tea and cookies, but she always made sure she had apples for Doe.

Before


It was on this fateful day that the strangest of things happened. The picnicking pair were set upon by a bad of roving Broccoli!

Invasion


Doe decided to have a chat with the Broccoli as she was fluent in cruciferous vegetable. Before the talks started Doe promised the Broccoli she would but eat them. Little did they know Doe didn't eat broccoli due an unfortunate incident with broccoli toots and birds some time ago. That however is a story for another day. On this day Doe listened to the Broccoli and learned that she and Lulabelle had been picnicking on the Broccoli's land. They only invaded because they were tired of not being invited to the picnics. So from that day on Lulabelle and Doe always invited the Broccolis to their picnics. The end.

The Sea Witch's Sister

By now you may be familiar with the Sea Witch who made the deal with the Little Mermaid. That sea hag was pretty darn evil if you ask me. Did you know she had a sister, well half sister to be fair. Maybe because she is only the evil Sea Witch's half sister that is why she is rarely brought up. Either way, she inherited all the witchiness, but none of the evil part.


Alma the Sea Witch I


While here sister was living in the ocean making disastrous deals with the merfolk, Alma was on the land trying to make things better. She would do her very best to try and assist the merfolk who visited the ruins near her home. Alma was also know to help any other types of folk who came for her assistance.
Alma the Sea Witch I

While her look may have intimidated some, the tales of her aid spread far and wide, leading to a great number of folks seeking her help. Through her assistance and kindness to all she was able to obtain the sort of life her sister could only have dreamt of.

Mornings Are Rough

By now you have probably seen a photo somewhere with the hashtag "woke up like this". If I ever tired to do that people would have flashed to Melisandre's true form in Game of Thrones. Oh you haven't seen it? Well spoiler alert, it isn't pretty and neither am I in the morning. Look I even have proof.
Least my bum looks good


See I told you, it is so far removed from even pretty adjacent, but at least my bum looks banging. Trust me when I say I saved you by not getting a close up.

After some fancy brushwork, enough contouring to impress a drag queen, and enough hair product for half a dozen Hollywood starlets I am ready to see the light of day.

No More Hag

Then again by this point the morning is shot. Maybe I should grab a latte, and relax till it's time to venture into the night, where this amount of work won't be seen. Hmmm I may need to rethink when I start my morning routine...

Keep Your Stories

Your tales mean nothing

"Does this fool honestly think his tales of heroics for the rebellion will truly impress me?" she thought as he carried on with his tale. Every man seems to think that being in the rebellion and fighting makes him special and that all the panties will drop for him. Foolish little man has no idea who is is talking to. How can he just assume I am sympathetic to his cause? Little does he know as he is spilling all this information that he is supplying me with intel and that he won't be getting any. Some men are so easily manipulated it makes my job so much easier. He will find out soon enough, they all will...
