Glimpse of midnight

Standard

The moon shines white and silent
On the mist, which, like a tide
Of some enchanted ocean,
O’er the wide marsh doth glide,
Spreading its ghost-like billows
Silently far and wide.

Moon demonDo you hear the eerie murmur in the dark, perhaps on the water? It might be the wind… or not the wind at all.

All things look strange and mystic,
The very bushes swell
And take wild shapes and motions,
As if beneath a spell…

Behind the door

Standard

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known
Sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there? ‘Cause I’m the one who waits for you
Or are you unforgiven, too?

Bride 1You will be here, I know that much. All the rest is noise, the flowers, the intricate bejeweled gown, the dazzling jewelry, the elaborated plans… it’s all beautiful, but nothing more than a pretty background. This is our story. Come beside me, and speak the words that make my demons run.

Bride 2

Come lay beside me, this won’t hurt, I swear
She loves me not, she loves me still, but she’ll never love again
She lay beside me but she’ll be there when I’m gone
Black heart scarring darker still, yes, she’ll be there when I’m gone

Voices I hear

Standard

Mystical voices, floating, calling;
Dim farewells – the last, the last? –
“Come, come away, the night is falling;
Come, come away, the day is past!”

You cannot be sure if what you heard is the wind dancing through the cracks of the cave, or an eerie whisper calling your name, playing with your fears. Could those be steps, could those be crystals clinking through the silence, or just a random water drop crashing on the rocks?

Crystal demon 1

A silhouette emerges from the darkness, pale as a deadly sin. The moonlight shines on the majestic symbols engraved on its ghastly skin, the delicate beauty of red roses, evoking droplets of blood on silent snow.

It turns around in a blind stare, a blinding stare, a scream trapped in your throat. There is beauty and it’s almost overwhelming, or perhaps it’s just the lure of darkness itself.

Crystal demon 2

Tell me your message, Ye who are calling
Out of the dimness vague and vast? –
Lift me, take me, – the night is falling;
Quick, let us go, – the day is past!

Blame it on me

Standard

Now that you’re gone,
I feel like myself again.
Grieving the things I can’t repair and willing…

Paternoster 2

In nomine Patris… I believe I still remember a prayer, maybe it’s not too late to be saved. I feel the weight of many worlds, even the fabric of my sumptuous Lucrezia gown seems to carry some sorrow. This beautiful dress was created for the Fantasy Faire by Les Encantades. The mists have already taken away the mystic Fairelands, but the magic remains. You will find it soon at the main store.

The perfect complement was this amazing Isabella d’Este hairstyle from Oblivion from last round of We ❤️ RP. I love the authenticity in these designs. I had a little fun putting them together, as Isabella was Lucrezia’s rival for a long time… but I digress.

Paternoster 1

Lacrymosa dies illa… She lights a candle with all the strength of her wishes, almost as expecting something mystical to happen. The light flickers on the gems of her Sweet Elegance cross-shaped necklace, one of the latest creations by Zuri Jewelry, reflecting on her warm maple-tone Yoga skin, created by 7 Deadly S{k}ins exclusively for eBento.

Blame it on me,
Set your guilt free.
Nothing can hold you back now.

Believe

Standard

I believe in love, it’s all we got
Love has no boundaries, costs nothing to touch
War makes money, cancer sleeps
Curled up in my father and that means something to me

Dragon fairy 1
All kinds of creatures deserve to love, all kinds of creatures deserve to be loved. Others say that she does not belong in this place, in the company of a monster. They think my claws were made only to tear and destroy, and don’t imagine I’m capable of tenderness. But for her, I have learned to sing, to enjoy the soft moonlight glowing on her delicate wings, to be happy… to love.

Dragon fairy 2

The Fantasy Faire in Second Life means different things for many people, but at its core, it’s about love. It’s also about beauty, talent, and our passion for fantasy, undeniably put to the service of a cause of love, Relay for Life (RFL). RFL of SL is a part of American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life fundraising. Help more families find hope for more fantasy tales and happily ever afters… or at least to help them battle that silent enemy within.

Let the fairies guide you to the Fantasy Faire… it will be open for a few more days!

Without love I wouldn’t believe
In anything that lives and breathes
[…]
Without love I wouldn’t believe
I couldn’t believe in you
And I wouldn’t believe in me
Without love

I believe in love

Mirual’s quest – Athenaeum Arcana

Standard

Here the most outlandish sight
Were the ruins of a broken world
Books of stories old as time
Falling from tall, dusty shelves

A somewhat melancholy scene
This frozen death with no decay
I’m not made for words of ink
This is not the end of my quest.

Mirual - Athenaeum

Follow Mirual through the breathtaking Fairelands of the Fantasy Faire, in the hopes to find a place she can call home. Today she struggles not to plummet into the abyss at the mysterious Athenaeum ArcanaLet the fairies guide you to the Fantasy Faire…
