Highlights from the Blogger Posts VI

One of the challenges of blogging Fantasy Faire is that it is not just a shopping event, it is not just a quest, or Literary Festival, or endless parties or roleplay or performances or… you get the point. Faire is many things to many people, but what it is underneath the fantasy community we all love and cherish, is a charity event.

Fantasy Faire supports Relay For Life, and through that, the American Cancer Society’s Global Initiative. This is not an easy subject to blog about regardless if your life has been influenced by cancer or not. If it has, writing about it might feel too personal, too painful. If it hasn’t, your words might feel empty lip service to you. Therefore it is never ever obligatory to blog about it, but I do always encourage those who wish to share their reasons to relay to do just that, to give voice to this deeper current within the Fairelands.

I’m not going to paraphrase, nutshell, or otherwise describe these posts, simply presenting a selection of many. Read these stories in the words they were written, and if you so choose, share your own.

Songs of the Faire 2020 and the Book Table on the Drifts of Anamnesis,
Songs of the Faire 2020 and the Book Table on the Drifts of Anamnesis,

Many people have been inspired by the Fairelands to take photographs or perhaps to write stories or poems.

Few though, have perhaps been as industrious as Banshee Heartsong, who was inspired to create more than sixty flash poems, and beautiful images to accompany them.

This book is now on sale in RFL kiosks by the book tables on Drifts of Amanesis and Ambigula, with all the money raised going to Relay for Life of Second Life.

And Banshee will be reading from the book, showing images and talking about her interpretation of inspirations at 3pm today, Thursday 7th May at the Place of Stories at Khawr Maksar on Drifts of Anamnesis.

The Queen’s Garden – A Fairelands Story

The Queen’s Garden had been busier than usual lately. Hestia had felt the presence of first one, then another. More and more, coming in pairs and groups, until the essence of thousands of souls drifted through the leaves, sparkling in the morning dew. Continue reading The Queen’s Garden – A Fairelands Story
