Spires of Andolys

#29 Spires of Andolys Carriage

Ylani smiled as she rode in the carriage and looked up at the beautiful castle overlooking the small town. As night began to fall fireworks were starting to go off and light the sky above the castle.

#29 Spires of Andolys Garden

She lifted her skirt and descended from the carriage. Her bare feet touched cool stone and she suppressed a chuckle at the memory of the fairy godmother who had attempted to give her glass slippers along with her new gown and appearance. She probably hadn’t need to glare quite so fiercely but the mere thought of shoes, let alone glass ones, was more than she was willing to bear. And really, who in their right mind would walk around in glass freaking shoes?

#29 Spires of Andolys Portrait

She walked down the path through a small patch of trees and flowers and looked at the tall tower standing in a clearing by itself. A small sign near the ground declared it Rapunzel’s Tower. Near the sign was a small portal, she shrugged and walked through it finding herself at the top of the tower in a small room. She crossed to the balcony and looked out over the town and castle.

Fairelands Junction

#28 Fairelands Junction Petite

Ylani splashed and danced in the water dodging a jellyfish at the last moment. Not only had the fire sprites’ spell made her able to breathe underwater, it had also shrunk her down to a small fairy sized sea sprite. After a few moments of exploring the underwater portions of the Faire Junction she decided she rather liked being small. It made it much easier to explore those tiny little spaces. Although she could do without the fish trying to eat her.

#28 Fairelands Junction Underwater

After a while of swimming her legs get a bit tired. A seahorse swimming by sees her sitting on a ledge and nudges her leg and motions to his back. She smiles and hops on gratefully. He took her on a tour of the waters, swimming until she felt the spell starting to wear and she gestured she needed to get to the surface. Not long after they reached the surface and she thanked the seahorse the spell wore off and she regained her normal size. Looking down she smiled to see she had in fact regained her true hybrid form again.

Note: So the panorama shot was from an oops. I switched from snapshots saving to inventory to saving to disc and didn’t double check my dimensions. >.< However a few came out nice.

And I just had to add this because it made me giggle. On the marketplace description of Evie’s Closet’s Lumina is the following…

“Take a look at Lumina now. She’s technically still a Mermaid, she just has this snazzy Sea Jewel set into her forehead, which enchants her and lets her “borrow” someone’s legs for a bit.

(Please don’t ask what happens to the person on the other end of the enchantment… We’re not exactly sure, yet. The goblins are looking into it.)”

Petite Piano Picnic

#27 Petite Piano Picnic

I decided to call a couple of my fairy friends over for a small get-together. I wanted to show off my new garden piano and deck chairs. I bribed them with cookies. 🙂

Thanks so much Willow and Chigs for coming over and letting me take photos of us!

#27 Petite Piano Picnic - Chairs and Cookies

The piano and petite furniture are from the Fantasy Faire going on right now. So is my dress, wings, and skin. If you haven’t been yet you really need to go! There are 13 beautiful sims, 10 of which have a combined total of around 150 stores. Each store has a few vendors selling donation items. The money is going to Relay for Life as well as the money from the donation kiosks in various spots on each sim.

Ichi-Go Ichi-E (Part 1)

Ichi-Go Ichi-E Part1 - Waking

Ylani clawed her way back to consciousness and lay for a moment before opening her eyes. The sight of flowers towering over her confused her, but before she could wonder about it too much a strange glowing bark mask appeared above her. Startled she went to sit up and groaned as she saw her body. The last thing she remembered was the Japanese area and dancing with the fairies… oh and the angry goblin. She sighed and looked up at the collection of wood, moss and mushrooms gathered into a sort of humanoid shape with a glowing mask for a head.

“Hello. May I ask where I am? And what I am?” She asked the creature in front of her.

“You are in Ichi-go Ichi-e at the Faire.” The creature said in a soft feminine voice cocking her head sideways as she continued, “How do you not know you be a tinderling?”

Ylani stood and searched through the vast library in her mind. Tinderlings were mentioned briefly in The Apprentice Journals. They were manifests of a land’s life force sometimes also called the keepers. She gave the other tinderling what she hoped was a smile, although she didn’t see a mouth per se, and replied, “It’s a long story. Maybe I could tell you over some refreshments?” The other tinderling nodded and beckoned for her to follow.

#25 Ichi go Ichi e Tinderlings

They went to a nice outdoors cafe run by some fairies and took a seat. While they waited for their tea and cake Ylani told Shari, the other tinderling, about her travels to the faire and how it had all been going very well until her and the sakura fairies woke a goblin. the last thing she remembered was him casting magic on her. Their food and drink came and she stood on the stump to reach for it only to pause. The tea was a funny green color.

Shari opened her maw and shoved cake in noisily.

Ylani dipped a finger in the tea and asked, “Are you sure this is safe?”

Shari bobbed her head and said, “This is the Faire Folks Tea of Wonders.”

Ichi-Go Ichi-E Part1 - Transformation 1

Ichi-Go Ichi-E Part1 - Transformation 2

Ylani looked down at it doubtfully then lifted it and carefully took a sip. She had just finished the slightly bitter drink when she started to glow and felt her body changing. Shari slurped the tea through her finger and nodded seeing the swirlings begin. She glanced down at the Fennux under the table near their cake and rustled letting off some mushroom puff at it. Looking back up and seeing the transformation end she nodded and said, “It worked.”

Ylani sighed at her new look and shook her head sadly, “No I’m still not right. I am a silver dragoness.”

“I’m sorry to hear that. I hope you regain your true shape. For now I must go. Remember, once you have been here and seen the Fae Cafe you cannot speak of it to the tall ones. You must only ever come back here in times of dire need and seek me nearby growing somewhere.” Shari hopped down and disappeared in the nearby grass.

Ylani stood and after thanking the fairies she decided she may as well wander this new area and make some more purchases to benefit the cancer sufferers.


Whew, sorry it was another lengthy one. Thank you so much to the lovely Shari Cortes for joining me! Oh what fun it was. 😀 I used some of the little roleplaying we did as well. And a huge thank you to ColeMarie who happened by and passed us the pretty particles used in the transformation! As soon as Shari shares her link with me I will add that here so you can see her post as well.

Info on the Tinderlings that Ylani paraphrased is from Cerridwen’s Cauldron’s notecard. The full text is below. Thank you Elicio for your wonderful creations. 😀

“We walked as stealthily as we could through the thick forest’s underbrush, with Sharian the Old grunting each time his wizard’s robes got snagged in a twig or branch. We had been searching for weeks now for this new kind of Fae. According to the region’s druids, they were a manifestation of each land’s life force. I parted a frosted bush and stilled a yelp; there, between two red leafed, frosted birch stood what appeared to be a collection of pieces of wood, leaves, ferns and whatnot in a roughly humanoid face; with a “mask” with a glowing rune and eyes. We had found them, the keepers, the Tinderlings!

YoZakura

#24 YoZakura

Ylani wandered across the bridge leaving Wildhaven Marsh, glancing over at a sign which declared she was now entering a place called YoZakura. Not far from the bridge was a group of japanese style shops. Seeing a cute short kimono outfit she ducked in and picked one out. She had never been able to stand the long kimonos that hindered her movement. But this short one, she went into a curtained off area and changed into it, yes this short one was perfect. She bought it and wore it out of the store.

“Miss, oh miss.” A voice called out to Ylani and she looked over to see a fairy sitting at a table with paints. The fairy smiled and waved her over saying, “You should let me paint your face to match your pretty kimono. The donations go directly to Relay for Life.”

Ylani cocked her head and sat in front of the fairy with a small nod. The fairy picked up a wet cloth and gently wiped her face to clean it off. As she started her painting Ylani asked, “Relay for Life donations? What is that?”

“Why the whole reason for this lovely faire! Have you really not heard what the special sales proceeds go to?” Ylani shook her head and the fairy explained as she painted her face. “Well the money goes into a charity which then uses it to help people fighting various diseases called cancers. They are awful diseases and many die from them. So each year we have this huge faire and earn money for the charity. There are also lots of performances and a quest!”

“How do I know which items donate the proceeds to the charity?”

The fairy finished her face painting and smiled, “Oh that’s easy! They will have a purple sign that lets you know.”

Ylani smiled back and went to stand but the fairy held up a hand to stop her and asked, “Would you allow me to cast a small glamour on you? Just to temporarily change your hair and wings. Oh and hide the horns. It will match your kimono nicely.”

Ylani hesitated and then shrugged. “Sure, why not. Its fun to look different every once in a while.”

The fairy clapped and mumbled a quick enchantment waving her now glowing hands at Ylani. “There we go! Would you like to see?” She held up a small mirror for Ylani to look in. Ylani smiled and thanked the fairy before wandering off to peruse more shops. Anytime she saw a sign with purple stating that item was a donation one she would stop and consider it, all too often she would purchase it as well. At least the money is going to a good cause, she told herself.

#24 YoZakura Dragon

As she wandered she heard a loud rumbling like thunder. Her eyes immediately drawn to the skyline where she sees an ancient dragon curled around a mountain in the sky. She turned and walked the opposite direction, she did not intend to challenge him in any way.

#24 YoZakura Dancing

Soon she reached a small pond with sakura trees in full bloom around it. Instantly some sakura fairies came and began to dance around her. She laughed and couldn’t help but join them. They danced and laughed for some time as petals fell around them, suddenly a goblin jumped out from the forest canopy bed nearby growling angrily at them. the fairies scattered and Ylani didn’t have time to do more than open her mouth to apologize before she was hit with his magic and fell to the ground unconscious.

A quick note – Sorry for the length of this post, it kind of got away from me. 🙂 However I did also want to bring the Relay for Life aspect in since that is the main focus of this wonderful faire. Hope you are enjoying the story so far! Sorry i don’t have every sim hot linked on here, however the lovely FF site I linked has not only the slurls of each sim but a picture and short description.

Wildhaven Marsh

#23 Wildhaven Marsh

Ylani’s draconian eyes widened as she got her first look at the grande scope of the fair before her. When she had first head others talking about it in the dragons’ caves she had shrugged it off as just another fair. She had been to many of them and while they were sometimes amusing they weren’t anything really amazing. Then she began to hear more and more people of different races talking about it with growing excitement.

#23 Wildhaven Marsh Ylani

Her curiosity had been peeked and now here she was looking at by far the largest and most diverse fair she had ever seen. It took up an entire small continent and looked more like different towns and cities of a variety of races as well as some wilderness. She landed near a village that surrounded a small lake and began to explore the shops set up.

#23 Wildhaven Marsh CC Store

Her amazement at the level of magic it must have taken to bring this fair into being grew as she saw the various wares and services being sold. One shop she entered had huge plants inside as well as water on the floor. Yet it seemed to be contained within the shop itself. She spent a few hours exploring the place a sign designated Wildhaven Marsh before she found a place to sleep for the night. Tomorrow she would explore a nearby area she had glimpsed that was filled with sakura trees in full bloom and Japanese buildings.
