The Live Auction had left the waves of Paer Thura in a mess. There was flopsid buses, stray Nuu lunches, amok chikins loose and Junction knows what else. The Critter Cleaning Crew was certainly kept busy!
Extra leftover noms were safely gathered in quickly filling tummies, Paer Thura centaurs curled down for a nap after all the excitement, and one industrious smol critter tower of one critter on top of the other was wheelbarrowing cushions back to the flopsi pile when one stray leaflet fell to the ground, having been securely hidden under the pillow of Her High Faireness herself.
Another critter found it and decided Paer Thura was certainly clean enough by now, and devoted herself into the higher arts of plane making. It took at least five critter towers to get the paper plane high enough to throw (causing all the towers to collapse-splash into the water), but eventually it flew allover the Fairelands, spreading vitally important message about dinkie litterboxes and glowsticks.
And the critters? They changed into a dinkini (just one for a whole pack of critters) and went to a party!
Yesterday was scheduled to be the final LitFest Tour – to the Quest Region of the Seventh Valley. However, because several people missed the Tour because they were at the Auction (and it was great fun), we will be running it again.
We will be running Tours in the off-season (when the Faire is not happening!). If you would like to learn about this, and perhaps suggest a destination, please join the inworld group, the Company of Fair Folk.
The final weekend of this year’s Faire is now over, and that means that both Silent and Live Auction are now wrapped as well.
Silent Auction ended on Saturday after a tense quick-clicking combat and brought over 500,000 lindens into the RFL kiosk.
Sunday was spent in the marathon of excitement that is known as the Live Auction. Build sets to make yourself a Faireland, already-familiar-and-loved landmarks from the Fairelands and highlights of the Faire were auctioned off in heated bidding wars and the RFL kiosk barely held itself up with the 2,347,688 linden dollars that were poured into it by the end of the evening.
Somewhere during the auction the threshold to 20 million lindens was broken, and not much later, 21 million lindens. Guess that 21 for 21 was not just about the amount of regions! We are currently at 21,578,147 linden dollars relayed to Relay For Life and American Cancer Society. That is 86,312 US dollars.
There are no words grand enough for that statement. We need to come up with new ones. So, that’s Faire work! Thank you, Fairelanders.
The Company of Faire Folk rides out! Or walks, flies or (consults notes) swims – as is your preference. Our final Tour of this Faire takes us to the oceanic region of The Seventh Valley by Gidgette Adagio.
This is a place of questing, where mysterious clues and hidden things abound. Yet having found your way here, you may never wish to leave, as the peace and beauty are mesmerizing. Thick forests, cascading waterfalls, deep pools, hills and valleys, all beckon. The eye is drawn, always, to what looks like an egg that glows like a rainbow sun. What is this marvel?
