||Oh, mighty Thassa, how you’ve cared and carried me – to many places in and out of this world. Cleanse my wounds and purify my skin as I pray within you. I’ve offered many times the life flow of others, so you too many enjoy the beginning and end as it always cycles. And here I am blessed that my prayers do not go unheard. Praise, oh mighty Thassa, as you drown me from the rest of the lands, please purge my memories of thoughts better off forgotten. I have come too far now to be stopped by the quakes of the heart.||
So it goes that work consumes, and in being the perfectionist, in-world pictures just weren’t expressing themselves as I hoped. As the world of SL continues to turn, The Fantasy Collective has once more opened the realm’s maw to bring us a world of Pirates! While the swashbuckler life isn’t exactly my favourite cup o’ tea, all the designers involved have made them quite the stylish folk. Featured is the lovely Pirate Jacket in Red from Peqe, as well as Olive‘s beautiful headband hair called Marina in Tangled Candies. There are plenty other lovely goods to mix-n-match, if not add to your personal inventory for just the perfect Pirate look or scenery. Be sure to click The Fantasy Collective banner below for more information and detailed gallery, courtesy of Seraphim. Inquire about any other piece worn in this ensemble and merry shopping!
||Perhaps if one held their breath, unconsciousness would eventually hit and leave the mind in an oxygen-depraved haze. But even that wouldn’t salvage the soul in its harvesting towards a new age. Who was to say who chose death over another chance in the service of the Red Witch. The moons had several passings, while the Central Fire stared unblinkingly across lands that were to idly come to burn and be cast in darkness no matter what. She kept to her hiding, the low profile, while doting hands and curt words meticulously pieced together parts of a master plan – one that would become whole with time and its fruition. The blood shed of green would begin soon enough once more, so the Red prospered.||
So, as The Secret Affair has taken the grid by storm, everyone who adores exclusive creations by top designers will be sure to be spilling blood for their chance at the Iron Throne. This brand new event of course bears the theme in honor of Game of Thrones, a series that keeps us anticipating for more, if not ragequitting when our favourite character dies. While opening its doors in simultaneous release of the season 4 premiere April 6th, there are a few new additions that you may have missed if you haven’t re-visited. Firstly is !deviousMind‘s second creation to seemingly combat the beauty of her ‘Fire Priestess Melisandre’ Collars, the ‘Lady Margaery’ gowns. Elegant and magnificent are soft words in regards to the absolute beauty of these gowns, available in fitted mesh to treat your own built shape. You too can be the queen with these exclusive garbs in your hands, for there are many colours to choose from as well. Secondly, is the belated yet highly anticipated accessories by ieQED, Cache of Crowns 2 (gacha) and the Sunspear Pauldrons. You will not be disappointed in the detail of any of the gacha crowns, but definitely aim for the Ultra Rare Lion in Gold! Also, the shoulder armor pieces are stunning, if not intimidating; so be sure to keep your mind upon this season’s new addition of House Martell. Be sure to return to The Secret Affair and claim up these new items! Merry shopping all!
|| Solace came in a series of forms, but mainly that of slumber. It was within the cocoon of blanket and one’s own mind that the Red Witch drifted towards the answers she sought. A blank slate awaited her one evening, where a variety of hues rained down from the skies. At her feet was an ocean born from a pool of blue, with every idle drop of a random colour birthing a koi. Each chose to dart off in opposing directions, offering self in sacrifice to become mountains, sylvans, if not a civilization. The Red Witch stood in awe, suspended above calm waters, where the sky completed itself with mesmeric sunset. However, a familiar face was standing on the shore, marked by a wicked crown of jagged black antlers. A palpitation of heart hit her hard, while realization dawned in dark regards upon her face. With an idle shake of that red mane, she deemed the painting of this world to be left unseen. And thus, she began anew.||
Just a heads up that Genre has re-opened today with the mystical sharing of ‘Fae‘. As shared in the past:
‘ Genre is a new monthly event that focuses on celebrating the different cultures within SL. With so many creators designing for these special communities, it was high time that they had an event of their own, not only bringing them and their talents to the general populace of SL, but also at a price everyone can afford. Each month a specific genre is chosen along with a theme to help inspire and unify the designers in their creations, with a price cap of 100L per item, each item being new and exclusive to the event (only for the duration of the event at which time you may release in your shop at regular price.) Starting on the 15th of every month and ending on the 12th, people will have a lil less than a month to visit the event.’ So do enjoy and partake of the lovelies while you can!

||The news of another uprising slithered through home and villages alike like whore with too much time on her hands. Many of her cargo ships had been marauded upon docking in a port city, or word simply vanished on the breeze. Such left a sour taste on the Red Witch’s palate, but it did not diminish her goal of acquisition. If thieves or the like were going to steal what she had already gone through the process of taking, then why not make it a game in determining who was better suited with the title. She rained news down upon those of loyal standing at her side like a freshly fallen rain – wishing to retrieve any identities or direction in which to surge her rage. Many goods were beyond rare, or contraband meant only for her eyes; so a personal game it became. Nonetheless, with her networking about the lands from sea to mountaintop and growing idly day by day, she’d have the news or heads upon her doorstep in no time. This hunt was going to be fun.||
