 Rise-Upward-by-Dale

 “The battle is now,” Sage spoke rapidly.  

“The way out is Through,” she said and in one swift movement, lifted the toaster onto her shoulder, rallied the other small creatures into extreme readiness, then looked with sharp evaluation at her friend who still knelt…living perhaps a bit too long there.

“The way out is through…and Up,” the flower seemed to add, stretching itself imperceptibly but enough for eyes to see.  Bloom’n blinked.  Once, then twice, then three times.  As if to clear her ears to hear the beautiful plant all the way down through to its roots and back up again, a journey which she was now convinced extended to the Heavens and the Wisest of Eternals.  As if in search of Galaxies, she studied each innocent yet ancient white-pink petal.  Then feeling her friend’s determined energy, Bloom’n looked up and met Sage’s eyes.

“We climb,”  Sage resolutely said.  Her eyes sparkled now.  “We cast off the skeletons of fear, remnants long overdue to be left behind.”

She extended her hand and firmly took Bloom’n’s hand.  

“We climb together,” Sage breathed.  “We climb all of us as one.  We climb now.”

FAIRELANDS JUNCTION

By Saiyge Lotus

ANANSI

Anansi (Beq Janus/Polysail) – Worldling Cradle

Because for every end there must be a beginning…  Once upon a time there were no Fairelands, no faires, a no stories to be told. It is said that the trickster god Anansi, stole the seeds of creativity from the sky gods, nurturing them into life, giving birth to the fairelands, casting them to the void winds as he flees the wrathful gods.  But such tales are for children aren’t they? …

Magic

Last night, Fantasy Faire organizers announced in group chat the total amount raised was nearly 6.2 million lindens for a total of more than $25,000 USD.  This is the highest amount raised by any RFL group in SL todate.  And this was achieved even through an SL blackout on one day and another day when one or more of the Faireland sims experienced difficulties…no doubt because of the overwhelming numbers storming the vendors.

The beauty of this kind of coming together to create and live into a shared experience and to achieve such a phenomenal result is truly magical.  The level of passion is so very apparent when you look at their weblog.  The incredible purpose, not the wonderful personalities, is constantly stated first and foremost.  The vision constantly has the spotlight, as it should, and is constantly brought to life by weaving a powerful shared story and experience.  Still.  At the end of what had to be incredibly hard work over what had to have been an extensive number of months, it just wouldn’t be right to go forward without a sustained standing ovation for everyone involved.  Fantasy Faire founder Ember Fatina cannot possibly receive enough accolades.  Nor can all those who worked with such convinction and passion to make it all happen.  Dagmar Haiku thank you for the honor of including me with the official bloggers and for the pleasure of meeting you early on prior to Fairelands opening.  From one of countless many — like all of us — that cancer has impacted, to all of you incredible souls, I humbly say thank you.  Forever thank you.  

In Fantasy Faire Fellowship and until we all return to the Fairelands again, thank you, indeed.

Fantasy Faire ~ Passion & Purpose

It’s coming back to me how this works.  There are so many goodies at the Fantasy Faire that to showcase even half of my FFC vendor purchases, I am going to have to post fast and furious.  So with treasured D on my shoulder and with me always, here’s the first entry that begins with a lovely mer outfit called “Passion Mermaid” from Theta Marseille.  It’s ethereal and luminous and yummy.

As luck and wonderful creations would have it, the beautiful skin (“Francesca” from la petite) and the wonderful shock of hair (“Risen” from EMO-tions) work perfectly with “Passion Mermaid.” 

As do the ethereal “Minnalou Cosmos” eyes in warm purple from VreMode; while these are not a FFC item, their fantasy coloration of pink and purple has made them my favorite pair of eyes to wear.

All of these items (except for the eyes and of course my D) are FFC vendor items, which means 100% of the purchase price goes to the American Cancer Society in the fight to eradicate cancer.  Passion is never a shortage in the SL community, and that’s a beautiful thing.  Go get your passion on at the Fantasy Faire and at the same time help in the fight to find a cure.  Find the Fantasy Faire Sims list HERE, all Fantasy Faire information at the official weblog HERE, and of course the fashion details HERE (below)!
