Fanci’s Deep Open Week

SWF Open WeekSafe Waters Foundation, one of our returning Faire-sponsors, is having an Open Week starting today. There’s a submarine tour that covers thirteen sims on its way that you can use to travel, click here to get to the beginning of the tour. If you become interested in becoming a mer, you can visit the Safe Waters Foundation Headquarters. If you’re already one, you might want to go shopping in Fanci’s Deep Mer Mall. Here’s the invitation in more detail from Grace Wrigglesworth, CEO and Founder of Safe Waters Foundation:

Tala! (That means hello in Mer Language).

The Safe Waters Foundation is having a lovely, week-long event, From April 5-11, 2015. We are seeking interest from parties, who like ourselves, want to save and preserve Second Life Waterways for all SL sea life and others with SL sea interests. So much of it is being housed over and taken away by other entities who do not see or understand the purpose or importance of Second Life Waterways. Therefore, it is up to us to awaken or renew this interest.

In the attempt to do so, we invite everyone to participate in our week-long event. We want people to see who we are, as well as where and how we live in SL. We believe that if we do this, that people will visit us often; or may even join us as part of our friendly-not-so-little-group. There are many Mermaids, Mermen, and other deep sea creatures who live and exist Under The Second-Life Seas, and we are hoping to expand on this, and to help save our Second Life world as we know it.

So join us for a day, a week, a year, or for the rest of your Second Life. Everyone is welcome. We have many officers and other members who can answer your questions or who can help you find the answers if they don’t have them right at the moment you are asking for them.

While this event is about us in some ways, it’s also about you as we provide you with your Second Life Underwater Entertainment. So come along for the ride, and for other things. But most of all enjoy! Below is listed a video for you to view at your leisure.

Duchess and Irina Reporting from Fairelands, Day 3

Faery Court
Fairelands calling, Fairelands calling! Today there’s to be a concert of Keeba Tammas and her band, The Tiny Maniacs, and we’re both huuuuuge fans of Ms Tammas, so we don’t want to miss this. We start to prepare already in the afternoon in our small inn room at the Faery Court. We pick an outfit, find matching shoes, apply cosmetics, comb our hair neatly, yet when the look is ready we’re not satisfied, so we start over – five times. When we finally deem ourselves presentable in our mermaid tails, we swim across the lake towards Heavenslough and walk the rest of way, only to find our entry barred by a man twice as tall as me and wider than the double doors of the Mayor Hall.

“Sorry, ladies, you’re late. We’re full.” The man speaks to us.
“But… but … We’re reporters, surely we’re in the VIP list!?” I cry out pleadingly, and state our names and the newspaper we represent.
The man looks over a book beside him and then shakes his head. “Sorry, ladies, you’re not on the list.”
“Bah, there’s gotta be something you can do?!” The annoyance and fury in Duchess’ voice is clearly audible.
“No, ma’am. The sheriffs are watching ever so vigilantly and if I were to let you in, they’d surely call off the concert and arrest everyone. What do you think would happen if the audience was to find out it was because of you two?”
Duchess and I look at each other, both imagining the outcome of us being locked up in a cell with an angry mob, and neither of us finds the result very appealing.

“There’s gotta be a way to sneak in….” Duchess murmurs at me when we’re out of the bouncer’s hearing-range. “Let’s walk until we’re out of his vision and then try to get in through all those bushes. Good thing we’re at the Fantasy Faire, I don’t think mer-folk can walk this easily on land elsewhere.” She chuckles a bit, keenly studying our surrounds for a hidden entry.

Luckily for us, we do find the perfect, mermaid-sized gap amongst the vegetation. We begin to crawl through carefully, trying to avoid breaking our costumes. However, the moment our hands touch the earth of Heavenslough, we see a pair of small boots before us. We lift our gazes slowly and there’s a sheriff standing right there, dangling two pairs of handcuffs in her tiny hands. “Now, now, ladies. You have two options. Crawl back where you came from, or spend the night in a cell… And no, running is not an option. This place is crawling with sheriffs and two mermaids are rather easy to spot.”

Defeated, we return to the Faery Court, where we decide to chill out at the dock, have a cocktail, two, or three while observing the people, and of course give grades to the handsome male-folk who pass us.
