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.

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.

Animal spirits.

||The Red Witch fell deeper into the field of visions day after night – walking plains with herds of kaaila or immersed in waters slithering with thalarion. Disoriented and alone in these dreamwalks, she pondered further on what was reality or imagined. She had tread many lands, north and south; met many a people within cities or in traveling caravans. The Central Fire rose and fell from horizon to horizon, casting wicked shadows across her flesh, which then pooled about her feet. It was the Thassa that swept there now, where she was positioned on shore; a musical roar filling her ears. Bright eyes stared up to a sky veiled in night, sprinkled with what they called stars. It was said that some stars linked to form constellations of people and of animals. It brought an awe to how vivid this dreamscape was, and the fact she was conscious yet held prisoner by her subconscious. What an odd path she walked that coincided with her business and love.||

Featured are, sure enough, more of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival lovelies. By this time, everyone and their mother who has been privileged with early access has immersed into most (not all, since some designers are holding out until February 1st!) of all the original creations that hundreds of artists have made for this glorious February round. This look was not only fun to piece together, but it definitely suited my wilder side in trekking about SL GE Gor. So merry shopping and remember that there are only a few days until the Fantasy Gacha Carnival opens to the public grid. So enjoy and buy and trade with excitement!

We won’t stay silent.

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.||

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.
