Captive Song

As the sun rose, the stone giant opened the door to a cage and held a palm near the opening. A woman stepped into the offered hand and balanced as the hand moved away from the cage and close to where the giant sat. He let his arm rest in the shallow water and watched the woman intently.

Captive Song

She stood and closing her eyes raised the violin from her side. The sun inched its way into the sky and the heat it brought warmed her. She spread her ravaged wings, sighing at the relief that gave her sore wings, and began to play the song the giant bade her to play each morning as the sun rose. It started as a slow, soft melody and gradually became more cheerful as the sun rose higher.

When she was done, the giant sat still. She knew this was a silent order for more music and began a new song. After a few songs the giant lifted it’s hand back to the cage and as soon as she had closed her wings and stepped inside, it re-locked the cage’s door and left. She moved to a small couch and sat, laying her violin nearby. She pulled her knees to her chest and wrapped her arms around them and stared out over the sunlit water.

Sinking Into the Depths

#58 Sinking Into the Depths

Lily felt a slow falling sensation, almost as if she were weightless, and furrowed her brows before slowly opening her eyes. As her vision cleared she realized with a shock that she was underwater. She fought the need to breather and looked around to discover that she was far enough down to see the taller plants and only faint beams of light from above. To her left a sunken pirate ship came into view.

She tried to move her limbs and propel herself toward the surface but they wouldn’t move. She fought panic as her lungs started to hurt from lack of fresh air. She felt herself settle on the sandy bottom and squeezed her eyes closed on the darkness starting to creep across her vision. She tried again to move her arms or legs, anything that she could use to push off the sea bottom and get to the surface and the oxygen her body needed. Her lungs felt like they would burst if she didn’t take a breath soon.

Sinking Into the Depths Bottom

Her mouth opened and she took an involuntary gasp of breath and her eyes snapped open. She lay panting looking up at a white ceiling. A face appeared above her and the last tendrils of confusion cleared from her mind.

“You okay down here?” The man gave her a grin and chuckled slightly.

Lily tried to sit up but found herself still unable to move. She looked down and realized that not only was she completely tangled up in the sheets, she had also ended up on her bedroom floor. She groaned and dropped her head back to the floor. “I’ll be fine in a moment. Just let me catch my breath and then help me get untangled.”

Sinking Into the Depths Details


Sorry some of my items are from events that just closed recently. I have had a week or so of being uninspired. I have multiple characters ready to go for three or so other posts, just no story or photos for them yet. However when I saw this skin I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it and couldn’t wait to get it up! Lumae has done a beautiful new mer skin for the upcoming round of Enchantment. The theme this round is “The Little Mermaid”. It’s a fantasy tone on her Adore skin with 5 different make-ups to purchase. Each will only be 100L at the event. She will also have a pink-purple toned version out as a hunt gift in her store during the event’s time. Here is the current list of appliers Lumae skins include: Omega Body and Head, Omega Yabusaka Petite Body Applier (use in conjunction with Omega head), SLink Multi HUD (Hands, Feet, Physique) and Visage, The Mesh Project Body and Head, Maitreya Body, Belleza Body, LeLutka Head, Eve’olution by Absolut Creation, Genesis Lab Appliers (works best on Chloe Head), AMD Baby Bump, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Sweetlips, Kissers, Soul Ears (not the mermaid), and her own Leevi Ears in matching tones. This skin also includes 3 eyebrow options with both facial scales and without.

Later this week I’ll get my other posts ready and up. One is filled with the newest items out at Fair Play’s August Round. Another is featuring a new store called Glitter Trash. The last one is the one I’ve mentioned before about a battle between good and evil. 🙂 Thanks for sticking with me and I hope you enjoyed the story and photos!

Moonlit Whispers

#53 Moonlit Whispers 1

As the moon rose over the ancient amphitheater a woman shimmered into existence. The moonlight caressed her coal dark skin and her long white hair glowed. She closed her eyes and began a slow sensuous dance.If you listen close you might hear the faint echoes of music and quiet conversations of people long gone.

#53 Moonlit Whispers 2

Soon enough the moon began to fade from the sky and the woman stopped her dance. Looking around the dust covered amphitheater she raised a hand to the collar that had kept her prisoner centuries after the people she once served had vanished. Any night the moon lit the stage she was returned her to dance. No one saw her anymore and yet she was unable to escape.

#53 Moonlit Whispers 3

She raised her haunted eyes to the lightening sky, longing for the chance to see the sun once again, and  whispered her wish before fading away.

So dancing is obviously on my mind lately. I have been watching So You Think You Can Dance which is one of my favorites. That paired with the Dance of the Nile poses from Something New that I am loving, makes for dance related characters and posts. I also couldn’t wait to show you this new release from Storybook. Isn’t it just gorgeous?

Also! Even though there is no We ❤ Roleplay round this month, Lumae still decided to do two new fantasy tones for her Jewel and Adore skins. Not only that but she has placed them in her store at 50% off, as well as every other fantasy tone for Adore and Jewel for the rest of July. So if you missed some in the past months drop in and grab them. She has also been updating and adding appliers. Here is the current list of appliers: Omega Body and Head, Omega Yabusaka Petite Body Applier (use in conjunction with Omega head), SLink Multi HUD (Hands, Feet, Physique) and Visage, The Mesh Project Body and Head, Maitreya Dedicated Appliers, Belleza Body Dedicated Appliers, LeLutka Head, Eve’olution by Absolut Creation, Genesis Lab Appliers (works best on Chloe Head), AMD Baby Bump, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Sweetlips, Kissers, Soul Ears, and her own Leevi Ears in matching tones. Past Adore and Jewel Fantasy tones are still being updated with Belleza Body and Genesis Head appliers over the next week or so. I will be showing off her other new skin later this week.

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!

Winter Queen

#35 Winter Queen Full

Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days, the weather was really bad here which makes our wifi almost non-existant. Not to mention I got one of my lovely migraines. But! I am back and got a new look for you. Two of my sponsors, Lumae and Storybook, are at the new round of We ❤ Roleplay, which is celebrating its second birthday! So there are lots of goodies out, some free and some cheap, plus all of the normal lovely new releases discounted during the event. I also have a new sponsor! I was accepted to blog for Something New Poses. 🙂 So they are featured in this post as well. I chose one of their older releases so it would fit the outfit better but look forward to seeing some new stuff from them in upcoming posts.

#35 Winter Queen

I have been discovering new features of the updated Firestorm this week, when my net was working well enough. One of the cool new things is they updated the snapshot feature and options. They even have photo filters! I used the Spotlight feature on the close-up to give it the vignetted look.

Also I may be changing my blog look. I was reviewed a week or so ago by Canary Beck on her post about search engines and blogs. She had some good points about my blog design not being search engine friendly. However the main reason I am thinking of changing is I am concerned about the ease of navigation. I love being able to see all my photos displayed together like this, but I know it was difficult for me to figure out the navigation at first and want to see if I can find a template that I like but will also display my sponsors and blogroll more visibly. I would love to hear opinions from readers about this as well. 🙂
