Bright Horn entered the enchanted glade and approached the statue of her friend illuminated by the light of the moon. She stepped forward and lay her horn on the statue, whispering the words that would awaken her friend from her slumber.
The statues eyes opened. Slowly the statue relaxed her pose and looked around the glade. She smiled when her eyes found Bright Horn and she spoke in a soft singsong voice, “Bright Horn, my friend, what a pleasure it is to see you.”
Bright Horn nickered and pawed the water with a nod. Welcome back, N’Mara. Did you have a nice sleep?
N’Mara hopped off of her pedestal and hugged Bright Horns. “It was peaceful. How long has it been since my last awakening?”
Fifty-four years, my dearest. I am sorry to say our magic was weakening and I could not wake you for many years.
N’Mara frowned. “The magic seems no weaker than last time I was awake. What happened?”
Magical creatures and beings from all over have banded together in the last decade and once a year they hold a large faire. The faire has reminded humans that magic is real and still alive. They have learned that they have nothing to fear from most of us. Some have even discovered magic within themselves and so go to schools that teach both humans and non-humans. It has brought our glade back to life allowing us to reawaken you.
N’Mara smiled. “This faire sounds interesting. I will have to go to it and see what has changed.” She paused and looked down at her vine covered body. “Can you help me take care of these vines, dear heart?”
Bright Horn nickered and gently pulled the vines and flowers from N’Mara. She reached behind the pedestal and pulled out a dress for her. N’Mara grinned and slid into the garment. She sat atop her pedestal and after releasing her hair from its braid, finger-combed and re-braided it.
“Tell me what has been going on while I was asleep?”
Bright Horn nodded and settled in for a long evening of stories.
Hey guys! If you hadn’t guessed N’Mara (nuh-mar-uh) is my Fantasy Faire character this year. 🙂 She is an animate statue, carved thousands of years ago in the likeness of a moon elf. After a couple hundred years of traveling and living in many places, she became tired and began to take naps for years at a time. While she sleeps she appears like any other granite statue. She entrusted the care and protection of her slumbering body to her friend Bright Horn and her unicorn herd.
As an animate statue she has no need to eat, sleep, breathe, etc. However the enchantment that animates her does let her mimic these behaviors as she wishes in order to blend in. The only way one can tell she is not alive is to touch her. While her skin appears real it is hard and cold as stone. She does not have any magic of her own other than to mimic life. She is capable of some emotion but it is subtle.
Hope you enjoy her story as she visits the Fantasy Faire starting April 21st and lasting until May 1st. I will be trying to get a post up almost every night and do one post for each of the sims. Not every post will show N’Mara, some will feature people or creatures she meets at the Faire, but you will see her in many.
