Sunny Days and Damaged Shoulder

Why yes I am finally back after a three month or so absence. Back in May I messed up my shoulder...bad. Not being able to use one whole arm for more than two months sucks! But now I am back and I got to enjoy a little of the sun while I was healing. Hitting the waves was much more fun than physical therapy.

Testing the waters

Before getting into the water you need to test it. It was cold, but not freeze your bits cold. From here the waves look fairly tame, but looks can be deceiving. Some of those waves can knock you off your ass. Or they can toss you around and you get a sand rash. Next time I try boogie boarding I am wearing a rash guard! The nice thing about bigger waves is that they bring the surfers to the beach. I am not going to lie, I was sneaking a little peek here and there at then. I was studying their techniques, as realizing I am going to need be a little more graceful before I can attempt surfing.

Watching surfers, on the sly

That won't stop me from observing the surfers in action anytime soon.

Want to Play a Game?

You don't know me and that is probably a good thing. You see I am a bounty hunter, and not the kind that works for the human courts. I am a soul bounty hunter. What's that you may be asking. Well here is the deal, whenever someone says "I would sell my soul for whatever nonsense they are desiring", one of the many damned lawyers pops up here and strikes a deal. You may think that we wait till that person eats it to collect their souls, but we can be an impatient lot downstairs. So when it the time comes to pony up and you try to sneak away they call me. I got out and I get the job done. You know when you meet someone and think they have "soulless eyes", yeah that is our handy work. Anyway I try to find the fun in the job, so sometimes I offer a game. If they can beat me in a game of poker they get to keep their souls. SPOILER ALERT! They never win.

Lets play

Take this moron for instance. He agreed to play poker...with a demon. Did he honestly think he had a chance to win? I sometimes literally have an ace up my sleeve. I am a freaking bounty hunting demon, of course I don't play fair! Here is a helpful hint, don't offer you soul up for material things like this dude, no car is worth you soul. Oh and another one, if you are willing to sell it for something selfless, that isn't out bag and we kick it upstairs, your welcome. Now don't make me come after you!

The Oracle's Walk

The Oracle

Everyday the oracle who lives in the forest takes her walk. No matter the weather she is out there walking. She uses her senses to guide her on her daily stroll through the area. She knows that the quacking of ducks and the trickle of water means she is at the pond near her home. The ducks are always having a lively conversation, what about the oracle isn't clear on, but the do seem into it.

The Oracle II

Once the scent of tulips hits her nose the oracle knows she is home. For her home is the only place in all the forest where the tulips will bloom. She loves the scent they give off and can only imagine their beauty. Before she ventures further and enters her home she hears an unfamiliar sound.

The Oracle III

Turns out what she heard was me practicing my violin after yesterdays failed concert...oops.

My Audience


This was the only audience I could get to attend my very first violin concert. They were are very adorable audience and I was totally getting into the music.

I look so serene

I mistakenly thought they wee ones were enjoying it as well. Sadly I was terribly wrong in my assumption. I actually overhead one of the unicorns tell there mum, "Mommy is sounded like something was dying." *dramatic sigh* I guess I need to practice some more before my next performance, because seriously you do not want to piss of a momma unicorn, or a papa one for that matter!

Elenora Escapes

Elenora became the last virgin, and by that I mean she was the last uninfected soul, untouched by the plague that ravaged her home in San Mora. This made Elenora a very wanted young lady and put a hefty price upon her head.She knew she had to flee her home. She peered around corners trying to be stealthy in her escape. Finally she was able to make a break for it on a day when the weather turned dismal, keeping the bounty hunters at bay, at least for now.

The Story of Elenora I

All through the following days she traveled through many different realms. The first she passed through was a bustling marketplace, where she could head the sounds of merchants selling their wares and elephants off in the distance. The next realm she wandered into was a pale watery land with colorful sea life who would lead up out of the water in their own aquatic dance. Still Elenora traveled on, into a lily pad strewn land full of frog. She made quite a few new amphibian friend here, but she still did not feel like she was far enough away from her pursuers. The next realm she landed in had a giant temple, where a goddess seemed to reach out for her with open arms. Elenora rested in the safety of the goddesses warm arms a bit before moving on yet again. The land that fell just beyond the temple was a proper old city, at least compared to where she had come from. She lingered her for a few days enjoying the canals and the string music. That was until a change in the the winds signaled that is was time for her to keep moving. Just when she thought she would have to sleep the night hidden in the bushes Elenora came upon beautiful village. This village was perfumed by the sweet floral scents of the flowers that grew there in abundance. This place was like a dream to her, one she wished she never had to awake from. However awake she did and onward she traveled, until finally she found it, the land she would call home. All the houses here were built into the hills, and as she walked Elenora looked into the window of one home and found it empty.

The Story of Elenora II

Elenora huddled into the far corner of the house for the night, promising herself she would properly take ownership of the home in the morning. It had been a very long time since Elenora had felt this at peace and after a while she felt right at home. Sadly she could never quite escape the feeling she was being watched...

Fantasy Faire and Me

I will start off by saying this is not my first Fantasy Faire to be blogging about. However this is the first year I have been more outgoing and frankly unafraid. Every creator, organizer, performer, you name it that I have encountered have been more than kind to the social awkwardness that is me. The first day I was finishing up some picture taking of the shopping sims before the Faire opened, being a blogger does have perks you know. All the sims are stunning and masterfully built. 

2017 Fantasy Faire - Fairelands

As I was dashing of my first post I was listening to the Fairelands radio stream. For a while there was a mini dance party happening on the deck of the Fayrchilde, the dragon ship on the Kakushi Pasu sim. I actually danced and interacted with people! After that I went walking the fairegrounds to Mudrana, where I realized I was a day early for an event, but still got to meet a wonderful storyteller. I stuck my foot in my mouth, but was luckily forgiven. I will claim exhaustion on that one.

The second day was a busy one! Pictures were taken and events were gone to. One of the events at the Faire this year that got my attention was Roleplay classes. It's something I have been interested in for a while now, but never knew where to start, or how to be a good roleplayer, so I thought. So I hit up the first roleplay class. It was quite informative and there were some roleplayers in the audience too!


That is me with the pink and white hair in case you were wondering. While I was at the class I met another roleplayer, by sticking my foot in my mouth...again. Noticing a pattern here? Anyway we got to talking and he was super helpful and while his avatar may have looked intimidating he wasn't. I am going to keep his name a secret because I don't want to ruin his street cred. Just look at this picture he was willing to take with me.

Phire and a Madman!

I finished off the day with a performance by the Misfit Dance and Performance Arts group. Okay if you have never seen them perform you need to see it. There were different sets and different music and different avatars dancing around. I took a bunch of pictures, but we would be here forever if I showed them all.

Misfit Dance and Performance Art

See what I mean about about adorable. They are sailors...and a pirate! There may have also been sheep, spies, mice and an amazing grand finale. Those are just a couple of days at the Fantasy Faire for me this year. I will have more to share as the days go on. For not I need to get back I don't want to miss the next roleplay class!

Sadie the Pirate Lass

Sadie is a pirate lass, and she is a sneaky one at that. You see Sadie was under the protection of the Captain of the Sad Serpent, and he lets her get away with murder, sometimes quite literally. Listen these pirates are not the most plundersome of their ilk. Sadie is a big fan of the drink. When you are living on a sad little ship the drink is your friend. Sadie does not share well with others, she missed that kindergarten class I believe. She does have a refined palate and as such only drinks the most robust of ports. She thinks that the rum the other pirates on the ship drink is utter swill. As I was saying, Sadie does not share well so she hides away her bottles in the one place no one would look, an empty explosives barrel. Did I forget to mention Sadie is a cunning lass? I mean would anyone in their right mind go looking for a drink in a barrel marked EXPLOSIVE?

Sadie the Sneaky

After an extremely rough day out to sea Sadie is known to break into her stash and hit is hard. The only problem with this is that Sadie becomes a bit, well she become belligerent and volatile. She threatens battle with anyone that is willing to come near. Do you dare do battle with a soused, surly sailor lady?
