I am SO excited that the Wizarding Faire came back this year! There’s only a few events in Second Life that I literally count down the days until it starts, and Wizarding Faire’s one of them. (Geeks ‘n’ Nerds is another, and so was Cutie Moon Fair – very much hoping CMF comes back too!)
Gwyn carried her new badger plushie, Pomona (Pommes for short) around with her as she explored the Faire taking place at her school during the summer. The moment she got home to her family later that day, she’d be required to share Pommes with her younger siblings and many cousins – she loved them all dearly, though, so she didn’t mind too much – although she’d make an effort to keep the badger plushie away from cousin Alex, who was a little on the sticky and slobbery side.
I… may have gone a bit overboard this year, lol. Seriously, the last time I spent this many $L was for a several-month-long GIMP course (that’s The GNU Image Manipulation Program, btw). But can you really blame me, though? There’s so much awesome stuff here, how’s a Harry Potter obsessed fangirl such as myself supposed to resist? …Would you believe I actually listed out my planned purchases and calculated how much $L I’d spend, only to disregard said list entirely and go over 4x the amount I said I’d spend? No regrets, though ❤
Gwyn pressed her chocolate quill against her lips thoughtfully for a moment, before returning to whatever she happened to be jotting down in her notebook. What was she writing down, with such intense concentration even as Faire-goers came and went, excitedly chattering about their purchases… Detailed observations about said Faire-goers? Beautiful poetry that would one day be compiled into a best-selling book or even lyrics to a beloved song? Those random genius thoughts that only a teenage girl could come up with?
(Answer: Doodling pictures of horses and unicorns.)
The only thing I really missed this year was the Chocolate Frog Cards… I’d have liked another chance to get a Helga Hufflepuff card 🙂 On that note, if anyone happened to get a Hufflepuff card from 2013’s Wizarding Faire and wants to trade for a Slytherin card… y’know, hit me up! -grins.-
