Lamia’s dream

Standard

In visions of the dark night
I have dreamed of joy departed-
But a waking dream of life and light
Hath left me broken-hearted.

Lamia

I don’t deserve my dreams, after all this time, after all the terrible things I’ve done. But, alas, they come. My dreams haunt me with sweet images of a past that could have been, a future that will never be. One day, I found the angel. Fallen like me, forgotten by life like me, beautiful like I used to be, before I was defiled and torn from existence, and cursed into this snake prison where I live.

I found solace in those empty eyes, in the peaceful features of the angel’s face. I spend my hours telling him my old time stories and my dreams. It seems to me he knows that monsters can also dream. I slowly dare to hope again. I’m no longer alone.

What though that light, thro’ storm and night,
So trembled from afar-
What could there be more purely bright
In Truth’s day-star?

Am I evil?

Standard

“Come into the water, love,
Dance beneath the waves,
Where dwell the bones of sailor lads
Inside my saffron caves.”

I cannot be restrained. I will run free again, and once more men will hear my deadly song. Their hearts will freeze inside their chests, for they will know that their doom is certain. I will summon the power of a thousand winds and steal them away in my grim embrace. I am the storm that never dies.

Fairy 1

Called by many dreadful names, my storm hag lies in her cage, ready to exert revenge. The moonlight shines on her unearthly Niflarenis skin, one of the three exquisite exclusive creations by Stargazer for the Skin Fair. It includes appliers for bodies, heads, and other body parts, even eyes! I combined it with the horns and wings from Stargazer’s Fenodyree avatar and the Ancoebus Maquillage.

On with the action now, I’ll strip your pride.
I’ll spread your blood around, I’ll see you ride.
Your face is scarred with steel, wounds deep and neat.
Like a double dozen before ya, smells so sweet.

Midnight

Standard
Midnight

The snow of deepest silence
O’er everything doth fall,
So beautiful and quiet,
And yet so like a pall, —
As if all life were ended,
And rest were come to all.

Her name became unclear, by force of being whispered in the quiet moonlit night, with hope, with fear. Hulda’s realm is death and the cold darkness of winter…. but she also receives the sweet light of midwinter, like a seed which transforms the tombs into a womb for the gestation of new life.

Snow 3

With many names and many legends merging through the centuries, my version of this Nordic winter goddess brings the magic of snow in the beauty of her Winter Splendor gown, exquisitely created by Silvan Moon Designs for the present round of The Trunk Show. A delightful dream of snow, fur, and icicle jewels on the chest and sleeves, this gown is available in several delicate tones and fits various mesh and classic avatars.

Snow 1

Hulda’s beautiful face is a special winter edition of Guusje with lovely little snowflakes on her face. It is one of the new creations by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the Cosmetic Fair. It was designed for the LAQ Nyx head, but see how beautiful it looks on my Catwa Catya. I added the sensual Juicy Lipsticks, also by 7DS, available at the Designer Showcase.

Snow 2

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.

My night arrives

Standard

You won’t hear the soft crunch of my hooves on the fresh snow, but I’m coming, for sure I’m coming. You better behave, you better feast on my honor and set my table, because I know your sins, and my night is coming. Please me, and I will bring you health and prosperity. Cross me, and I will stomp on you and yours, rip you open and stuff your remains with waste.

Krampus 1

A dark counterpart for St. Nikolaus, Perchta is coming for you, rattling chains and bells, and ready to punish your sins. She wears the exquisite Antoinette corset, created by Les Encantades exclusively for the December round of We  RP. Available in several colors (and a very special Christmas-themed pattern), it’s compatible with several mesh bodies and the classic avatar. It gets along beautifully with Stargazer’s new Ancoebus make up and body tattoo, available at the Makeover Room.

My skin is the beautiful Neeltje, by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at eBento until the end of December. To match the beautiful freckles of her face, I used one of the new 7DS body skin packs, including plain, moles, and two intensities of freckles. I couldn’t resist adding the luscious Clarity lipstick, also by 7DS, coming soon!

Krampus 2

Those delicate little golden snowflakes on my hair are one of Zuri Jewelry‘s best winter-themed creations of the year, the Falling Snow Hairpins. They are Elite, which means that I can choose between several colors of gems and metals, and they match beautifully with my Ice Queen jewelry set, also Elite. Zuri waits for you with a wonderful Cart Sale and Hunt, and group members can receive the 12 Days of Christmas gifts each day (and a little bird told me that group fee is only L$ 49 just for today).

Queen of all nights

Standard
Queen of all nights

Once written in the stars 
A pathway set in stone 
A candle in the night 
To guide your way back home 

I’m the last of the Horai, the Hours, goddesses of time and fate. After the sweet nymphs of evening finish their dance of golden sunset, I reign. I rule in the darkness and quiet of the night, mine is the song of the nocturne creatures, the rustle of the wind, the peaceful breathing of sleeping babies, and joyful sighs of sleepless lovers.

Chronos-2

My Hora is wearing the beautiful Gwen dress, created by Les Encantades exclusively for the present round of Genre. I’m wearing the Maitreya version, but it’s also fitted for other mesh and classic avatars. You can find it in several colors at Genre until November 14th. It’s lovely and sensual, as it befits a goddess.

Chronos-1

While we silently observe our goddess, I wanted to show you my incredible new skin from Fallen Gods, just because I’m so happy with it. It’s called Chronos, and it was the prize designed for everyone who participated in the contest organized for the Fallen Gods anniversary celebrations. A massive thank you!

Chronos-3

Then somewhere in your memory 
Calling from afar It’s daring you to see 
What it is that’s written in the stars…

Quotes: “Written in the stars” song, by Blackmore’s Night.

All that was me is gone

Standard
All that was me is gone

Give me again all that was there,
Give me the sun that shone!
Give me the eyes, give me the soul,
Give me the lass that’s gone!

He calls me his queen, and his love, and he pretends not to hear me crying myself to sleep every night. My voice is raw from calling out my sweet mother’s name, then every god in Olympus, and any hero who could come to my rescue. My eyes are cloudy from the gloom and the permanent darkness of the underworld, this dreadful cage where I must now dwell.

Pers-2

My disheartened Persephone is wearing the beautiful “Spirit of Hope” gown, a lovely design by Silvan Moon, created exclusively for Gotham Island, a wonderful fundraiser event. The proceeds will be donated to the The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. You can find this and more until October 31st.

Persephone’s lovely face is the beautiful Lisa skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the current round of eBento. I chose the freckled version in this warm walnut tone. The jewelry set I wear is from the Sugar Drop collection, one of Zuri Jewelry’s latest creations, combined with an adorable Zahra floral crown, fit for the daughter of Demeter.

Pers-1

Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
Mountains of rain and sun,
All that was good, all that was fair,
All that was me is gone.
