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.

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.

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.

The night that never ends

Standard
The night that never ends

Many called her beautiful.
She was not beautiful.
She was red, and terrible, and red.

The truth is all around you, plain to behold. The night is dark and full of terrors, the day bright and beautiful and full of hope. One is black, the other white. There is ice and there is fire. Hate and love. Bitter and sweet. Male and female. Pain and pleasure. Winter and summer. Evil and good. Death and life.

Mel-1

Inspired in a character from A Song of Ice and Fire, my red priestess is rocking one of the latest releases from Les Encantades, the Thea robes, which you can find 25% off until July 25th at We ❤ RP. The rigging works perfectly for mesh bodies, while the fires of wisdom reflect on the gold in her belt.

Morning dew

Standard
Morning dew

Walk me out in the mornin’ dew my honey
Walk me out in the mornin’ dew today
I’ll walk you out in the mornin’ dew my honey
I guess it doesn’t matter anyway

This is what poets and bards have sung about for the ages. The early light through the window falling on the curve of your shoulder. The subtle silk caressing the line of your back. Your beauty in the morning sun, sweet and fresh as morning dew.
