Finian’s Dream

Yesterday, I visited Finian’s Dream. I’ve never been here before, I have no idea why, because this is my favourite kind of sim…

… a beautiful, ancient forest, filled with mist and moonlight…

… before long I heard the whirr of tiny wings, and these two gorgeous little Fae began following me. I deliberately didn’t turn around, because I didn’t want to scare them off…

… but I needn’t have worried. Because I’m not human, but not Demon, either, they were very curious about what I was, eventually working up the courage to ask me…

… I told them I was from another planet, from another star-system, and that I was 4000 years old. Although they didn’t seem to grasp my interplanetary origin, they were delighted to hear I was almost as old as them, and they started calling me ‘sister’, which really made me happy…

… we came to this bridge, and they grew very agitated, warning me not to cross it. When I asked why…

… they said something terrible lived in the clearing on the other side. They begged me not to keep going, but I assured them I hadn’t lived 4000 years because I was defenceless, and that I’d be alright. They weren’t convinced, and kept pleading with me to stop, but I assured them I’d be fine, and told them I’d come back and visit them soon…

… in the clearing I was immediately buzzed by this dazzling little, luminous Sprite…

… these creatures are more like me than like Fae, they are connected to universal energy, so, more like space creatures than Earth creatures. I felt her scan my mind, and suddenly she was talking to me in my mothers language. She told me the Fae were frightened of her because they couldn’t understand her, but that she never hurt them. I could tell this was true, and promised to explain that truth to the little Fae, next time I saw them. The Sprite wished me luck on my travels. Coming from a Sprite, that was more than just words; in all likelihood my travels should be very interesting, in future…

… I had a wonderful time in this mystical forest. There is a village, and a castle, full of lovely art, but, for me, this forest is the best thing about Finian’s Dream.
