Daily Recap: Sunday

The Faery Court Sponsored By Cerridwen's Cauldron 2 by Alisaundra AndelSunday, the very last official day of the Fairelands this year was filled with frantic shopping and eager visitors, trying to catch the last moments of the magic while they still could. While they still can.

We had one more imprisonment by the Pawlice — apparently the Law holds underwater as well, for GraceSWF Wrigglesworth, the founder of Safe Waters Foundation was trapped in an underwater cage in Wiggenstead Mooring. Fortunately the new winds of Justice in the Fairelands managed to reach into the depths and the Commander of the Pawlice, Xavian Starsider, was soon bail-changed into the cage instead of the beautiful mermaid. This seems to have had some slight side effects on Commander Starsider, who soon mutated into a koala kraken. If that is not Faire Justice, I do not know what is!

The Live Auction distributed pieces of the Fairelands to those most deserving. (The level of deservingness might have been decided based on the amount of linden dollars offered to RFL.) Every year the Faire leaves pieces of itself on the grid through the Live Auction, shedding the old skin before fading into the Mists to slumber and take a new form to rise again.

The Auction held an extra special piece of the Fairelands for sale, a continued tone of Justice delivered: Commander Starsider was frozen in carbonite and then sold off! It remains to be seen if Alia Baroque, who purchased the frozen Commander for everyone to marvel at Selidor, will let him out by the next Faire. More importantly, it remains to be seen if Commander Starsider has learned his lesson by then! (What? We can be optimistic.)

After the Auction we had our traditional Closing Party, where all the exhausted and deliriously happy Fairelanders finally take a long breath and know it is done, and that it was well done. The giddy delight in the air can only be matched by the need of sleep and the conversations tend to match the atmosphere accordingly.

Today there is no official schedule, albeit there might be some unofficial entertainment zooming around when you least expect it. The Fairelands are still there and the portals are still open for all of you to come in and share the last moments of magic with us. The merchants are advised to pick up no-copy items for obvious reasons, but otherwise everything may be left as it is, to fade away with the Fairelands when they do so at some point around Tuesday (the exact moment is up to the Linden Lab.).

Hunters are strongly recommended to hurry up with finishing the first part of the hunt, Fimbleby’s Wager, for it will become impossible to complete when the Fairelands fade. However, the Palace of Tears will stay around a week longer and fade after May 18th, so there’s still plenty of time to finish the second part of the hunt.

We have by now relayed 5,635,962 linden dollars, equivalent of 22,544 US dollars, and there’s still more time to shop and donate! That’s an astonishing amount that goes straight to Relay For Life and American Cancer Society. All thanks to you, Faire Folk. Thank you.
