The love-child of the Spring

Standard
The love-child of the Spring

The missel-thrush has frighted from the glade,
One pale narcissus loiters fearfully
Close to a shadowy nook, where half afraid
Of their own loveliness some violets lie
That will not look the gold sun in the face

The feeling of a quiet afternoon under an unblemished blue sky, the warm breeze playing with the folds of silks on the skin…

Daisy-2

These light and sensual garments are one of the latest beautiful creations by Silvan Moon Designs, the power match between BlueMoon and The White Armory. Fitted for Slink and Maitreya, and available in several colors, you can still find it until May 31st at the Rapunzel round of Enchantment.

The exquisite jewelry I wear today is a pre-release teeeeaser by Zuri Jewelry. It’s the new Snow Drops jewelry collection, and it will be available on June 7th at Swank.

Crown of love and death

Standard

I will never hear her joyful steps and the rustle of her heavy skirts rushing to my arms, the Coimbra sun playing with the reflections of her hair, the hair I kissed so many times. Never again will I hear her loving voice whispering my name, her laughter, her timid sighs. Her voice was silenced forever, robbed from me, ripped off from my heart, as I will rip off yours straight from your chest, and watch you die.

By my power, you all shall kneel, you all must kiss her decaying hand, and swear your allegiance to Dona Inês de Castro, my queen, your queen, the queen you have despised and cruelly murder.

Ines de Castro 2

The Mondego River will sing sad sonnets for her name on the warm summer nights, and the blood she shed will mark the Fountain of Tears for the ages to come, for nobody can ever forget how much I loved Dona Inês, and how unfairly her life was destroyed.

✽ڿڰۣ— NOTE ڿڰۣ—✽

My text is based on a legend surrounding the death of Inês de Castro, lover and allegedly secret wife of prince Pedro of Portugal. She was legitimized as queen after her death, when the heartbroken prince became Pedro I, King of Portugal. This is as far as documented history goes.

Legend claims that he had her exhumed and forced his nobles to kiss her hand and swear allegiance to her as queen, and that he executed her killers by ripping off their hearts, one through the chest and the other one through the back. None of this confirmed, but remains as one of the most tragic real life love stories of Portuguese history.

They rest buried together, their sumptuous marble coffins facing each other, so that they will see each other face to face when they’re awaken, on Judgement Day.

Before the dawn

Standard
Before the dawn

Meet me after dark again and I’ll hold you
I am nothing more than to see you there
And maybe tonight we’ll fly so far away
We’ll be lost before the dawn

My inspiration today was the beautiful temple dancer Nikiya and the tragic story of her love with the warrior Solor, an old story from an older era. I see her waiting for his return from the latest battle, with eager heart and loving eyes, in a time before the sad machinations of jealousy and dark fate.

She waits on the beautiful Sovereign Born Chaise Set, one of the wonderful creations by The Roawenwood. The textures are exquisite and it includes several single and couple animations, which you can also adjust to your size. This was an exclusive design for the Treasure Chest, but if you missed it back then, you can still purchase the March Chest at its full price.

dream 1

This lovely dancer is also wearing several items that I found at one of my favorite events, the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The sensual outfit is one of the rare items from Devious Minds, and the jewelled hair is one of the rares from Aisling.

dream 4

I added the Metal Vintage hand accessories from Yasum, also available at the FGC, and the sweet Aztec Dream nose piece by Zuri Jewelry, with gemchanging options.

But Nikiya won’t stay much longer. A tall, familiar figure appeared from the other side of the glass, smiling at her…

My guard begins

Standard
My guard begins

I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men.

This realm is mine to protect, and no threat will ever challenge my sword.

Warrior-1

This sweet little corset outfit is the latest creation from Les Encantades, which you can find at We RP until the end of May. It’s available in three wonderful combinations, and it includes versions for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Isis, and TMP.

Playing her parchment moon

Standard
Playing her parchment moon

The starless silence,
fleeing from her rhythmic tambourine,
falls where the sea whips and sings,
his night filled with silvery swarms.

We all rise to the music that calls for us, tambourines mark the beat, and a guitar brings the known old song under the insistence of his expert hands. The dance marries the song, timid at first, then lively and bright.

Dance-2

The fabrics of our garments flutter in the wind. These are the beautiful Song of Shaharazad Gowns, one of the latest creations by Silvan Moon, which you can find exclusively at We RP until the end of May.

Dance-1

These beautiful dancers are wearing it in blue and purple, but there are other colors available, and they will be reduced during the event. Fitted for Slink Physique and Maitreya Lara, the textures are exquisite as usual, and the rigging is wonderful, even if you swing your body to the rhythm.

Dance-4

Copper and silver gleam on delightful bistred skins, shining under a friendly moon. I’m wearing the beautiful Spellbound set, by Zuri Jewelry. One of Zuri’s timeless collections, this is a new Elite version: I can choose several colors of gems, pearl, and metal. I’m also wearing the matching Spellbound Elite engagement ring.

Dance-3

The beautiful Vardo – Romani wagons on the background are a fantastic creation by Anachron, and they’re waiting for you at The Chapter Four, only for a couple more days.

Dance-5

Available in three different colors and splendid designs, these wagons are also scripted to make you feel at home. You can open and close windows, blinds, and doors, there are different single and cuddling animations, and the fire in the furnace can be lit on and off. Perfect to snuggle, hang out, or take a little nap.

Dreamland

Standard
Dreamland

When midnight mists are creeping,
And all the land is sleeping,
Around me tread the mighty dead,
And slowly pass away.

I won’t lie to you. It will hurt. This isn’t the magical dreamland that you were fantasizing about, and I will make sure that you learn that. Let me guide you through the gate.

Death 1

This amazing Underworld Gate is a super cool teleporter created by Anachron for Genre. It’s resizable and comes with easy instructions to set it up on your land. The gate circle is, of course, animated and it looks fantastic.

Death 3

The gown is the absolutely stunning Light of Sarin by Silvan Moon, fit for a queen indeed. I can’t sing enough praises about this gown. It comes in various strong colors at the Fantasy Faire, about which I’ve been bragging all week, and it will also be available in pastel colors very soon at We

Death 4

Even though the gown includes a head piece, tonight I’m wearing the marvelous Lilith Head Dress, a dark dream of black roses and emeralds, and one of the latest releases by Zuri Jewelry. It’s available at the store in various gem tones. I’m also wearing the Snowflake Choker by Zuri, gem/metal changing, and… it could come scripted for Open Collar…

Death 2

The blaze of noonday splendour,
The twilight soft and tender,
May charm the eye: yet they shall die,
Shall die and pass away.

Quotes: “Dreamland”, by Lewis Carroll.

In your head they are dying

Standard
In your head they are dying

Another mother’s breakin’
Heart is taking over
When the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken

Where is all the life I left behind? Where is all the love I bled for? There’s only the echo of my boots, the throbbing of my wounds, and the memories of what will never be.

Back home 1
Heavy and muddy, my armor is one of the latest creations by Anachron, exclusively for The Fantasy Faire. As I mentioned in my previous post, the Fantasy Faire is the coolest event for fantasy lovers, creators, RPers of Second Life, and it’s also for a wonderful cause: helping the work of the American Cancer Society with your purchases and donations.

It’s available in several sizes and colors, includes the boots, and on a very personal note, I love the fact that it actually looks like an armor that is useful in battle, like an armor that was much used in battle.

Back home 2

In your head they’re still fightin’
With their tanks and their bombs
And their bombs and their guns
In your head, in your head they are cryin’
