This weekend, Fae in Europe and various other parts of the world will end Daylight Saving Time. This means that, if this is you, your time difference will lessen by one hour.
This is an indication for various time zones (sorry if I missed yours) until the US will cross over into Winter too:
- UK and Ireland: SLT + 7 hours
- Western and Central Europe: SLT + 8 hours
- Eastern Europe, Finland: SLT + 9 hours
Please keep this in mind while scheduling and/or attending events.
With all the strange things going on in the world right now, we are extra happy to be able to deliver to you the autumn edition of The Magic Messenger. Dream away with stories and the beautiful images, soak up knowledge, and enjoy the magical world of our Fae.
Enough talk now. Click here to go directly to The Magic Messenger and read.

Before we leave you to your perusal, we would like to once again thank our contributors and our wonderful staff of Dawn Greymyst, Astoria Luminos and Bugs Larnia for bringing us this issue.
Have you ever heard about something in folklore and was curious about what it means? Do you want to know more about the Aos Sí, the Tuatha de Danann, the Selkies or the Sluagh?
Now you can!
The Faery Crossing is introducing the Folklore Circle: a chance to gather around the fire for an informally led discussion of folklore topics, under the expert guidance of Toshiro, a folklore author and researcher, who will be happy to guide conversation.
We have created an idea box in the shape of a barrel with a green man on the front (just because we can) that you can find here. Just add your idea(s) in a notecard and dunk it in!
Hope to hear from you soon! Don’t be shy!
Love & Light,
School of Lore Faculty
The Faery Crossing
While Summer is still in full swing, we at The Magic Messenger are already working on the Autumn issue. But we need your help. The Messenger has always been by the Fae, for the Fae. Without you all, there is no Messenger.
So please send us your long and short stories.
Send us your poems and your limericks.
Send us your art.
Send us your recipes for food and drink.
Send us your jokes.
Send us your spirit and enable us to share it.
Don’t think it’s not good enough; it is.
Don’t think others aren’t interested; we are.
Don’t be shy; you rock.
Please help us make the Messenger as special as the people we make it for. You can send your contributions to Bugs Larnia inworld or, if you prefer, via email to email@example.com. If you want to publish anonymously, that’s fine. Just let us know.
Looking forward to your magic.
The Magic Messenger staff.
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.
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.

Whether you call it Easter, Ostara, New Life Festival or something else: we wish you all the best in this period of growth and new beginnings. To help you get started, the Magic Messenger Squad proudly presents to you the Spring Edition of the Magic Messenger.

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.

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.
Merry meet! Just a reminder that this weekend, the EU and others will be going over to daylight saving time. This means that as of Sunday, offsets with SLT will return to normal.
