Saturday, April 29th @ 5pm & 8pm SLT

The Rose (Alia Baroque)
In the Garden of senses silent footsteps echo through rich vaults of opulence and decadence, searching for the perfect spot where a stolen kiss can be unseen and languid murderous thoughts hidden behind a mask. This Rose blossoms in April through your gaze that tells her how beautiful she is.

Please note: you do not need to use any of these ideas; feel free to write about anything in this region.

Was this city of mystery the inspiration for Venice?

Who might celebrate or plot within the walls?

Who escapes at darkest night?

Who arrives to trade by day?

Why does the Rose watch the Main Ballroom and extend her roots to the sun?

Why are the Young roses caged?

Why does the whole City have empty rose pots and scattered petals?

Why are there no boats and ships?

Are masks and dancing important in the City social life?

Participants are invited to submit pieces written as part of LitFest Tours, or inspired by the Faire Lands, to be included in “Tales from the Fairelands” on the Fantasy Faire website and possibly to be read on Fantasy Faire Radio by yourself or one of our volunteers.

Work may be submitted at any time during the Faire, and we recommend that it be submitted by 11pm the day after each destination cycle has been completed in order to be considered for inclusion in “Tales of the Faire Lands” posts while the Faire is open.  Individual writers retain creative ownership of works submitted.
