A 'wicked woman' defends her right to be free and beautiful (from early 17th Century text Don Quixote)

Marcela is attending the funeral of a man who died of lovesickness for her.. having found his love to be unrequited...

"I come not, Ambrosia for any of the purposes thou hast named," replied Marcela, "but to defend myself and to prove how unreasonable are all those who blame me for their sorrow and for Chrysostom's death; and therefore I ask all of you that are here to give me your attention, for will not take much time or many words to bring the truth home to persons of…

Returning to Dakini Land

As I know that it is of great benefit to others to hear about the journey of one's particular self I have decided to apply myself, between my other duties, to writing a High Priestess's blog. It will mostly be IC and I will try to write one a month. I hope others will be encouraged to give it a try who have not as yet :)

It had been a good two years or so since we left Dakini Land, an island of Paquin which we had moved to from Sihnon a long time ago. We had been given special…

Famous Courtesans..

Imagine a woman who participates in her own life.

A woman who meets each challenge with creativity.

Who takes action on her own behalf with clarity and strength.

Imagine a woman who has crafted a fully-formed solitude.

A woman who is available to herself.

Who chooses…

I was just thinking.....

About the two types of Sci-Fi Fiction/Roleplay.

It seems to me there are two main types... them that believe in Earth and them that don't - am I wrong?

Any series, film or book that explores a Universe that don't include Earth can be a harder and more technical place to be imaginative in - their Flora, Fauna, Culture, Communities will be made up of things that we most possibly would have to learn from scratch in order to 'fit' in and understand properly (unless we were able to…
