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.

Side Quest: Vocaloid Bizarre

[[Music shall always hold a special place at the core of soul. And song shall be the words to weave the dreams of the entities which reside there. While some possess no rhythm, the appreciation of artists remains. In a new age, this digital age, the virtual fervor has evolved our imagination in bringing music into this world. New expressions and representations of the artform have arisen, bringing both inspiration and further of evolution. While this change continues to occur, may we never forsake the origins of the sound and where it all began.]]

IR-62-Final2

As promised is a post that I am sure some have looked forward to. This side quest dabbles into the realm of Vocaloid, a program I hope to soon own and collaborate with several other artists. If you consider yourself well-rounded in the world and history of music, definitely allow yourself to research and expand your knowledge base if you haven’t (for the voice lyric and melody packages HAVE expanded past just Japanese voices~). Within the grid of SL a new sales event has begun by the name of KRAVE INC., brought to us by Delirium Style and Sanctuary Inc. To get everything in motion this April, Krave Inc. Presents Freestyle – Urban Fashion Fair. A store which I adore and love, [geek.] is participating with super adorable and quirky one of a kind items! As featured is the Never Bored Belt (available in Pink, Red, Gold, Green, Purple, Teal, White, and Black), as well as Kraving the Rainbow Necklace Gacha (available in Common: Evil, Girly, Mystical, Rasta, Skit-tels, Sky, Team, Unicorns & Rare: Classic, Evil, Girly, Mystical, Sky). Scope out these items and more as you explore this up and coming event. So, what really tied this entire outfit together were of course Remarkable Oblivion’s RAB 8 and Cat-A-Clysm Headphones, available at this month’s FaMESHed (running from the 1st-27th of each month). Accessories truly are the key in bringing out the best in any ensemble, so thank you all for making all these amazing creations that I can call my own! Be sure to not miss round 6 of The Big Show, where The Scarlett Letter will be releasing the Ridin’ Dirty skirt; available in a bunched and non-bunched version for all the stylish naughty-makers. Merry shopping all!

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.

The Awakening.

||Rich locks glistened as a fresh blood flow – skin an immaculate milk lacquer. The bruises and scars had long since faded from the surface, however in the depths of soul, did the Red Witch have to heal from the corruption that her adversaries had inflicted there. Far and wide did a mystical path carry her – mind, body, and soul – to lands and to people that could aid the battle against the erosion of herself. She had awoken one day, with time having lapsed into days or had it been months? Eyes long since sacrificing heterochromatic beauty to the glaze of mystic white, flecked by gold and red that gave rise to her gift of the Aura Sight gazing to and fro. The interior of a hut with the rich musk of grasslands rose over senses, before all blurred to a plains that expanded beyond the horizon. In a panic, she attempted to stagger and sidle about, truly trying to make sense of this experience. Figures and forms rose in the distance, illuminated by the grand central fire that crowned in the zenith. Family stood idly by, friends waved and gestured for her to join them. And then from the high grasses stepped forth a looming one, and she swore a mirror was placed before her. A revitalized doppleganger stood with gentle hands coming down upon features and frame. And they embraced, seeking to pull the delirious Red Witch from her medicated stupor. Unmistakable bright eyes of her inner self were warm, but sturdy, while a voice urged her to wake up. Myrmidon had taken good care in nesting her in the garden of her own home, but now, from a healing did answers need to be sought.||

IR-42-Final

And thus continues the Red Witch’s chapter after her past ordeal of being captured and tortured by the nemesis, and old friend of her companion. I am hoping for further character development, since she has sprung to life all her own in my mind. On top of that, I definitely want more involvement with other gifted writers, if intrigued, rather than just complex NPCs. So, please do not be afraid to send a shout out, or perhaps set up the bridge in which our stories can collide. As promised, here is a lovely ensemble in which I must thank Nia/Aymee Monk of [Keystone] and Jalilah Jewell of .Enfant Terrible. for once again allowing me to show off their gorgeous shinies. The next round of The Fantasy Gacha Carnival is soon to be underway this coming February, with a variety of new goods for all to try their luck at. Featured is .Enfant Terrible.‘s Fashun Crowns and Staffs, alongside [Keystone]‘s Bru’ella headpiece. I am a glutton for any good accessory or two, and these definitely add that pedestal of elegance and finesse. Also a heads up that Collabor88 has also begun a few new session for January 2013! So enjoy and be sure to mark your calendars.

Happy Holidays.

With the settling of the holiday season and spirit, I’d like to send a happy holidays to all my readers and then some. Whether you celebrate Christmas in your own way or culture, or don’t,  ’tis still a time for togetherness and preparation for the brand new year to begin. May you be thankful and appreciative of all you have in your life, and for what the future has to bring. Just a forewarning to my avid watchers that due to January being a busy month for both work and personal life, I will be on a short hiatus from the realm of story. However, don’t fret, for it will all be returning, refreshed and renewed for the upcoming Year of the Horse! I will be hoping to engage in more plot line and story boards with all.

But before I hide away, here is some glorious eyecandy from none other than the beauteous .Enfant Terrible. These four looks will be available very soon to sate your dose of sexy and extravagant. So relax from your merry travels and enjoy!

Oh Queen of the night.

Enigmatic regalia.

||The venture had been made to the Sardar once many a confirming birds had woken the Red Witch from slumber. Back up the Vosk did her current gather of mercs and traders go. Swift and with haste towards news that made her heart palpitate – both in anticipation and disbelief. Once the river split to become to Olni did the transition to caravan happen; making good time on the backs of kaiila. At the base of the mountains did they rendezvous – contract men greeting her with precious, stolen cargo. In suitable vessels had the white, viscous liquid been milked and spirited away. All of this had happened for a reason, considering the very Nest had been possibly compromised without consequence. Though filled to the brim with excitement and joy in obtaining Gur, the Red Witch was very much wary of what laid in wait.||

So, if you haven’t heard Collabor88 has reopened for their October round – Black Magic. So many styles and so many accessories to suit this time of the month, whether it is classy, dressy, casual, or just plain fun! Check it out for yourself! Otherwise, merry travels!

Wicked whispers.

|| The winds of waterways had carried her vessel to lands where familiar faces resided. The mighty Vosk River opened its maw to the delta; and in turn the Tamber Gulf. It was from here that the Red Witch’s hired crew could drift along the coast, only to make landfall in known territory once more. Time had spanned across many months and she pondered on if she’d be welcomed or shunned by violent hands. But with ship docking and her aid busying themselves in meticulous tending to the safety of anchor and goods aboard, the Red Witch ventured out – catching the attention of allies well kept. Of them were that of Bobby and Dia, reigning from the strong and proud Kobaleinen blood line. The former of which having become quite the adept shipwright, while the latter hailed as a matriarch figure to all who inhabited her village. Nonetheless, it was amusing how fate unraveled to bring Dia and Fear into eachother’s company again – the Red Witch finding a sense of security in the presence of the dark-haired woman. This is where their whispers would begin, of foreign lands trekked and secrets learned – visions shared. Fear knew where to find safe haven for the time being. And with unrelenting patience, the Red Witch would ensure that the occult underground was to thrive once again. ||

And if you’re wishing to participate or find me in-character, there is a chance I will be roaming as a phantom about these lands as a visitor. The wilderness here has undergone a rebuild, but I will say that the landscape is still breathtaking. While there are many Gorean sims that bear the open terrain as home, I am very intrigued by the dexterity of being aesthetic for roleplay, as well as being raid-worthy. Nonetheless, if story play is your cup of tea, then by all means take a trip by and visit these villagers who are very much enigmas. In other news, onward to my look of the day:
