FC Winter Wonderland Prize Hunt

Merry meet!

Those darned pixies have stolen the FC Winter Wonderland prize. Our brave Protectors have traced them to this Winter Wonderland parcel before losing the trail and they are positive that the prize is hidden there.

Unfortunately, the pixies also seem to have left around a ton of decoys, and so we need your help to recover the prize. In the area of the skating rink, you will find – if you look hard enough – little FC baubles. If you get close enough and you click them, you will find out whether you have found the prize or have located a decoy.

The hunt begins here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Faery%20Crossing/181/111/25

Here follows an artist’s rendition of one of the baubles. Banana for scale.

In Memoriam: Eleanor Avonside

It is our sad duty to inform you that our own pixie, Eleanor Avonside, has traversed the bridge that leads to the eternal Summerlands. 

During her time with the Faery Crossing, Eleanor taught Brownie classes for many years to the FC kin who kept the lands clean and sparkling. She sprinkled humor and a little madcap madness wherever she wandered and we wish her the brightest of journeys.

Rest in Peace, Your Majesty

Dear Fae,

Today, September 8th, 2022, at the age of 96, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, has passed the Rainbow Bridge. Her reign spanned over seven decades and she has guided her nation through many eras of change.

We at The Faery Crossing wish her family strength and peace in their grief.

Thank you for your service, Your Majesty.

Trail Rides

All about the magical lands of The Faery Crossing are hidden nooks and glens. Come enjoy a closer encounter with all there is to experience as we traverse the lands on horseback.

Weekly trail rides: Tuesdays at 11.00am SLT and Fridays at 6:30 pm (18:30) SLT.

At the trail ride events we show you the basics of how to rez your free horse, how to use the menu, and then take a little stroll together. We will learn to use the Follow menu command leaving you hands free to type and chat along the trail with newfound friends!

To Meadow: thank you for everything

Today, after over a decade of loyal service, our favored Merry Meeter and Gateway Guide, Meadow Copperfield (a.k.a. Meadow Tiogar) signed out for the last time, leaving behind a legacy of joy, tremendous fun and dedication, and countless marriage proposals.

Meadow arrived in SL in 2009 in, yes, The Faery Crossing Gateway. Even then, when that first incarnation of the Gateway was limited to 30-day-olds and younger, she was there every day and at the end, we had to drag her, kicking and screaming, to the lands below.

From that moment on I knew 100% certain I wanted her to be a Meeter and Guide and boy was I right. From the first moment her enthusiasm, drive, and joy set her apart in a group that was the definition of enthusiasm, drive, and joy in those days.

Over the years, Meadow has served many roles, including Protector, Brownie, and as member of the High Faery Court, but none defined her as much as being a Gateway Guide. Literally hundreds of Fae took their first tentative steps into SL under Meadow’s cheerful and patient wings and many of them are still here and have never forgotten that wonderful first experience.

No words can ever express the gratitude we owe you, dear Meadow. You were the best of Meeters and the joy and soul of the Gateway Guides.

For the past few years, Meadow has been busy in her shop Meadow’s Whimsy in Mountain Rose and has been – and still is – an active merchant (and trophy winner) in various well-known grid-wide hunts. She will no doubt continue doing that and we wish her all the joy she has given so many.

From many Fae, some here, some no longer,

Thank you.

Your friend,

Bugs
