My Fantasy Faire posts have turned out to be mostly inspiration from fantasy novels, of which I read many. Escapist? I suppose. But SL is nothing if not escapist, so my two escapes combine during this week. Today my beautiful medieval dress from Dream Things reminded me of Kristin Cashore’s Fire, a half human, half monster girl who is so beautiful and so powerful that she can control anyone through their minds. So lovely is she that everyone wants her to control them. Unlike her father who reveled in his power, Fire finds this kind of manipulation of others to be deeply wrong, and covers up her beauty as much as possible to protect the people around her. This lovely gown helps with that!
Animals do not like Fire, with just one exception…her somewhat boring but very loyal horse Small. He doesn’t mind her glowing red-fuschia hair or her propensity to make him go into dangerous situations with her. Fire shows us that physical beauty can be a destructive thing indeed, and that no matter how gorgeous someone is on the outside, it really is what’s on the inside that counts.
