Surely You Jest

#51 Surely You JestShe twirled and leapt in time to the soft music filling the garden, her one person audience sitting entranced. The music came to a close with a long drawn out note and the woman ended the dance in a graceful bow. Princess Ryn blinked a few times before her face split into a huge grin and she clapped.

“Jes that was wonderful! I’m sure everyone at mother’s dinner tomorrow night will love it!”

Jestina stood and gave the princess a small smile. “Surely you jest princess. That is to be a formal dinner, wouldn’t they enjoy my harp playing instead?”

#52 Surely You Jest - PrincessRyn shook her head emphatically. “No way! It is a dinner only for her closest friends and a few of my aunts and cousins. Mother told me to pick something that would appeal to both the older and the younger ladies. I know for a fact my aunts and cousins adore your dancing. As does Mother and almost anyone who’s seen you dance I’m sure!”

Jestina gave a small curtsey and said, “As you wish, Milady. Should I ask someone to play the music while I dance?”

Ryn thought a moment. “Can you use the magic to create the music again?” Jestina nodded and Ryn continued, “Definitely use the magic then. While many have heard you play and seen you dance, few have seen you use magic. They’ll be trying to figure out how you did it for months. Who composed the music anyway?”

“Mother did. She’s no longer able to dance and so has turned to her next favorite passion. She is thankful for your family allowing her the use of your piano.”

#52 Surely You Jest - JesterRyn grinned again. “Saves me from having to practice. You know how terrible I was. I am much happier to let your family be the entertainers.” She stood and hooked an arm through Jestina’s pulling her back towards the castle. She began to talk about costumes and entrances.

Jestina smiled and allowed the younger girl to pull her along. She had given up the fight of keeping her distance from the princess a long time ago. They had practically grown up together. Her whole family and much of her extended family had served Ryn’s family for generations as their Jesters. Many royals only had one or two Jesters, Ryn’s family had come across Jestina’s and seen how talented they all were and offered them employment. Even those of her family not gifted with talents for entertaining worked for them in other areas of the household.


Hey guys! Whew I have to go back to doing single person posts. Between taking the time to do two looks and find locations and poses and such and my net being a pain, my postings per week are dropping. 😦 Good news though! My internet company is aware of how bad the net is (apparently a lot of people have been complaining) and they are going to be working on it soon. We live in a small town, but hopefully that doesn’t mean they’ll put us off.

So for this post I really wanted to show off all the lovely things I’ve gotten from Fair Play! Fair Play is a new event on the grid where the theme of the fair is based of off games. July first started this round and its a beautiful setup based on an old celtic game from the 13th Century called El Mundo. It was a boardgame for four players and each chose a season or element. I will be going and taking pictures of the beautiful setup later this week. Fair Play is different from many monthly events because it is open all the time, the theme will change periodically but may not be on a monthly basis. Also each store has exclusive items out that you will only find at Fair Play. You can find more information as well as a vendor map on the website. The landmark will be below in the credits. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed my little story!

What A Mess

#48 What a Mess

Khalisa looked at the mess around her. Her boss was literally going to kill her. As in rip her to pieces then put her back together just to rip her apart again. He had a vicious temper which wasn’t uncommon for a werewolf. He, however was a werewolf who had a lot of magical talent and that was rare. The room she was standing in was his workroom and it was trashed. She stood there searching for the small creature that was going to get her killed.

#48 What a Mess Gryphon

A flash of movement by the window caught her eye and she jerked her head just in time to see the little gryphon try to get out of the window and thankfully not succeeding. She rushed over stumbling over stuff that was strewn across the floor and did her best to avoid the broken glass. She finally made it to the window and quickly reached out and grabbed the baby gryphon before it had time to turn away from the window and see her. The gryphon gave a squeak in protest.

#48 What a Mess Khalisa

“Oh hush you little demon bird. You’re most likely going to be the cause of my death.” Khalisa told the gryphon. As she held the beast she wondered what she should do with it. She groaned as she looked around at the mess.
