Rest in Peace, Sweet Cleome

Dear Fae,

News at reached us that our Fae sister, Cleome Jewell, has stopped her dancing. She left this world late last week. She has been part of Second Life and The Faery Crossing for more than a decade and she will be sorely missed.

Her soul now drifts beyond the stars. Rest in peace, dear Cleome. Thank you for joining us and sharing your presence and rest assured that one day, we will join you.

We Need Your Brain

No. There’s no zombie apocalypse (mainly due to a scheduling conflict), but the High Faery Court and the Events Team want to pick your brain. Over time, The Faery Crossing has hosted numerous events: dances, Faelympics, quests, quizzes, and whatnot.

Now, we want to hear your ideas for new and exciting events. What would you like to see in FC? A fair? A new quest? Lessons on things like druidry or Fae lore?

It can be a weekly or monthly event, a yearly one or even a one-off. Anything that makes your inner Fae sparkle with giddiness. And while you can of course help host the event (with all help you require) or be involved in its creation, this is in no way an obligation.

If you have an idea, submit it to Jo Shamrock of the Events Committee. Don’t be shy, all contributions are much appreciated.

The Faery Crossing and Covid-19

Dear Fae,

By now, the term Covid-19 is known to everyone in the world. Many countries have taken the steps that they deem right for their situation, but everywhere, people suffer of this virus. This is not limited to those who have contracted it and have fallen ill, but also to their friends and loved ones and, of course, to the valiant medical professionals who are working so hard to help all of us.

Corona Virus Healing Rituals, every Monday and Friday

The Druids of the Second Realm, a seed group of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, will be performing healing rituals every Monday and Friday for the foreseeable future.

They will be on Mondays at 12.00pm (noon) and Friday at 4.00 pm SLT. Everyone is welcome to watch or join in. If you wish to perform in the ritual, please contact Qim Toxx inworld.

Daylight Saving Time in SL

Hi Faeries!!

As of tomorrow, most of the US (and therefore SLT) will go on daylight saving time. This means that SLT, as of tomorrow, 2am SLT, will be one hour later. Please keep this in mind when attending events.

Merry Yuletide

We here at The Faery Crossing are happy and thankful that you have been on our journey with us. Whether you have been here for years or just joined this week, we are honored and overjoyed to have you as part of our Fae family.

There is no such thing as a perfect year and every year will bring hardships, disappointments, pain and anguish, just like every year will bring joy, happiness, smiles and love. Often, sadly, the hurt lingers far longer than the joy and we send our hearts out to all of you.

Where pain, however, is often found in great setbacks and impactful events, joy and love are most often seen in the smallest moments: a drawing from a son, daughter or niece or nephew; a much needed hug from your spouse or your parent; that beautiful morning that promises magic… these are the moments that count.

Wherever you are, whoever you are: from the bottom of our hearts, we wish you the most blessed of Yuletides and a wonderful , joyous and magical new year.
