May the waters run red.

||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!

When the wild takes hold.

||The times were beginning to change once more, and so it was that an adaptation was quite necessary; lest she become a victim again. The Red Witch had been informed of a shrouding danger that could cost her a last breath, by none other than her companion. New in her life as he was, but wise was the wayward cleric who sought to ensure her security; a pang in her chest making her realize that his was to be held dear as well. Night after night, fire was spun alongside herbs while she awaited the physical return of contract men sent to get tid bits of information. While some never returned, this did not deter her want in having the advantage. Even while nested in the Kassau home of her family, such did not ensure safekeep – so eyes remained locked on the sea and the walls in observation.||

In my time of work and minimal free time Spring has sprung across the grid of SL (though the same can’t be said for RL -CUE RANDOM SNOWSTORM-). The anticipation for the new round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival is definitely in the air. Featured is a couple of the lovely, if not must-haves from [BlackPearls] dubbed ‘The Fallen‘. The Fallen Collar is the Ultra Rare Item, which includes the Complete Outfit (essentially all the rares and all the commons!). As it is known, I love accessories and these absolutely do the trick, as they can be donned to compliment any dark ensemble you wish to have. Next up is that the Spring round of The Season’s Story has begun with quite a variety of skins (such as .Birdy.’s Limited Edition Kayla skin featured above!), clothing (for women and men!), hair, decor, and then some all to bring you out of the chill of winter. Shown is VinCue’s maxi dress, in which is casual but can be dressed up for any genre. Last, but not least is the Cosmetic Fair, where I gathered up a brand new Moon hair, this unique lipstain from NOX., and vibrant eyebrows from [okkbye]. There is so much going on and it’s only April, for alongside these events, the 100 Block has opened (sponsored by Depraved Nation), Comic Fair, and the Monochromatic Fair (in which [geek.] is a sponsor, so expect a Side Quest soon enough!). Keep your calendars marked and your Lindens stowed away for what this season holds! Merry shopping all.

Let the night rebel.

||The raid had begun with a wave of fires that been masterfully plotted and mapped out through a portion of the Northern Woods. It was towards the Sardar Mountains that the flames erupted in a flourish of colour to ward off the evening fall. It was loyalists of the Red Witch that surged in caravans, with thalarion, or on their own two feet towards quiet little city of Harfax. There was trusted word that visitors rested there, thinking they hid from her eyes or grasp – but alas, such was the surge of bodies to encircle, if not ransack in surprise. Eager flames had trekked to the edge of the Woods of Clearchus, presenting an intimidating wall and aftermath of the trail the Red Witch had taken. A battle did indeed break out, with the song of clashing swords and tense bowstrings carrying across the air to join the choir of fire. A precious cargo was to be cut from chests as she tended to the objective personally. Such a distraction with a swarm of bodies had been necessary, though she had requested that the number of actual casualties be kept to a minimum – for the innocents need not suffer for their housing of the unknown. And such was a rare show of her forgiveness; as it coincided with blood on her hands.||

As promised, I bring forth lovelies courtesy of Whore Couture Fair 3, The Arcade, and We ❤ Roleplay!! Inside every woman, there is indeed a carnal fantasy wishing to slither out and make a debut – however, mine seems to bear an exotic sense of grunge. As of late I had been very fixated on staying up to date on *Milk*, with their new releases of hair, and while dreads have never been my style in the least, High End Hippy really opened my eyes. I have noticed thus far that *Milk*‘s hairs are quite voluminous, which I love and adore, and come in a variety of cuts, updoes, and styles thus far. Next is a new store I’ve come across thanks to WCF3 by the name of D-Style. The shown top is their creation that includes a texture HUD with 10 colours and six decals to choose from. Following up next from Whore Couture, are the Destroy Leggins Noir from PANIK, which present a rough edge with fishnet to compliment the grunge look I wanted to set off. This is another store that is new to my fashion radar, however, this is not the first coming across them, as they’ve been present at Project Limited and The Big Show. I’ve also changed up my skin again, thanks to The Arcade. Beautiful -Glam Affair- is sure to break the pockets of many in regards to their smooth and new refreshing face of Aria, in Asia tone. If you are curious to what all the commons and rares are, simply click here – however, in all honesty, ALL the makeups are gorgeous. Last, but certainly not least, are my love for boots, and Jada of [geek.] has mixed both cute and rough into her new releases of Gonna Take An Arrow To My Boots and Took An Arrow To My Boots (shown), available at this months round of We ❤ Roleplay! Snag them in Girly, Snow, Abyss (shown), Bruised, Creamed, Dirty, Imperial Red, or Sunny today as the event is NOW open to the public! If anything, have fun, style it up and merry roleplaying!

Red walls, it’s revolution.

Darkness seeps.

||The last phase of recovery presented itself in the suspension of oneself within ones own mind. Day after day was the Red Witch becoming more of a solitary creature, with her loyalists and mighty word casting across the lands like a veiling storm. With dreams and visions reigning hell upon her subconscious self, the conscious reality always left her in a state of calculated thought. In being both a strategist and analyst, now was not the time to put down her guard in the least – for with a companion gone, it was the severing of some sources and only a small margin of profits. To depend upon another was not her way, so no harm done to finances . No, the harm was now to lash upon her flesh, with the gruesome hands of men seeking to grasp. In the base of Myrmidon, the Red Witch was to organize her thoughts and strive on to ensnare more souls to the underground. Her black market trade and occult ceremony were her glory now, and thus it would grow with dark intentions that even the Central Fire may not pry to see.||

So, it is known that I am a glutton for gorgeous accessories, especially that of headpieces that are both unique and intricate. Aymee/Nia of [Keystone] always exceeds my expectations with her jewelry pieces, especially with her latest release of ‘Zahidah’s Crown‘ that will be available for the next round of The Fantasy Collective this February 20th. It will be available in gold, gold/silver, silver, silver/onyx, and of course onyx (featured above). *Chronokit* has also released a comfortable, liquid mesh coat to further compliment their collection of outerwear, and with the chilly season and snow still here, I am more than thankful to be able to dress the part. In the meantime, hope you’re still enjoying the gacha craze, alongside the latest Genre ‘Fae’ Round! Merry shopping and trading and keep an eye out for the next round of the Fantasy Collective.

Why can’t I just trade a dream for a way, to peel back the shade behind the gray.

I’ve put a spell on you.

||A few visitors had come a’knockin’ on the Red Witch’s door: stained by blood varnish and placed in the shadow of her Adrastus family banner. Some had brought forth bundles of herbs or random tomes they either wanted translated or to offer up in trade for her services. They murmured of ‘fire’ and ‘eyes’,  wanting to discuss more of what they had heard across cities and amongst traveling caravans. She assured them she was no con-artist, nor did take the occult and the power it could bring lightly. Surely steel ruled the lands of the surface, but below and beyond another realm reigned – her source of strength. With secrecy maintained, any guests were led into the depths of her home within the wild of Myrmidon. Quite the hospitable hostess, their attention was maintained and palates kept sated with varying teas or brews. However, such was a lesson of perception, if not trust. And to not fall under the enthrallment of the red that crowned her head, or even the words that lulled from accented tongue. Some minds were too eager, if not greedy, as was read of their auras once they came upon her doorstep. Thus, living beings came in, bodies hauled out. Such was the price for her aid, when you came to deceive.||

You get me closer to god.

Pastel haze.

||Such aimless wanderings did not take her far this day. Melancholic silence befell beauteous features while thoughts drifted to the serene Thassa. Oh, how the Central Fire sank, painting the writhing surface in a flourish of oranges, reds, and golds. These moments of tranquility always made her second-guess the dark path she now tread. Yet at the same time, the deepening red brought a curling to corners of lips – for the satisfaction of that crimson as payment sated a palate these days. It wasn’t corruption of the soul; it was growing up and overcoming the weakness that veiled a woman in a man’s world. And so her reverie continued… ||

Nothing like a short and sweet display to end off a rather busy day. Writings here, working there, and being whisked off to roleplay everywhere! How I’ve missed these days though. I managed to slither away and pair together this look that is very much emphasized by the accessories I’ve added. All courtesy to GSpot, ~Pepper~, [MANDALA], and FDD. The featured gown is an artistic and darling gown by ARISKEA from the AVENUE Fall/Winter Fashion Week Collection. If you haven’t dropped into this event, it is a must to peek at. Otherwise, enjoy and merry storytelling!
