Fire Fairy - Egyptian Fire Fairy Assassin

In Ancient Egypt, ruled the Pharaohs - of King Tut, of Queen Bastet and Cleopatra. In Ancient Egypt, rose their Fire Gods - one Fire Phoenix, one Fire Tiger and Lava Serpent. Yet for their foes, of Empires Fall - Forged in Secret, did they make ... An Egyptian Fire Fairy Assassin, to slay their enemies - as they slept:


Fire Fairy - Egyptian Fire Fairy Assassin


For King Tut had wrote ... That a Fire Fairy Assassin, would be skilled in the Art of Knife. He'd train her well, in Obsidian Knives - to cut his enemies, from throat to throat. For Queen Bastet had wrote ... That a Fire Fairy Assassin, would be skilled in the Art of Sneak. She'd train her well, in Paths of Cat - to creep in quite, from light to night. For Cleopatra had wrote ... That a Fire Fairy Assassin, would be skilled in the Art of Serpent. She'd train her well, in Paths of Venom - to pour in flirt, from mouth to heart. And so it was ... A Fire Fairy Assassin did they make, with traits of three! A Fire Fairy Assassin did they make, with wrath of three! A Fire Fairy Assassin did they make, with tempers three! But no Sarcophagus did they make, they chose instead - an Elemental Gate of Fire, to keep her in ... With Steps of Pharaoh, cast in Bronze. With Spears of Army, cast in Bronze. With Doors of Secret, cast in Bronze. They placed a Ward, one of each: Phoenix, Tiger, Serpent. They placed a Ward, one of each: Tut, Bastet and Cleopatra. And still - they fought her for control! In Wise of Three, they chose a Guardian - an Ancient Guardian, tweet thy Oldest of the Old: the Egyptian Owl :) For in Ancient Egypt, was it written ... Owls do walk, in Paths of Wisdom - they know Lore of Calm: the Paths of Fire. Owls do fly, in Paths of Darkness - they know Lore of Keep: the Hearts of Fire. Owls do rest, in Paths of Death - they know Lore of Guard: the Gates of Fire. And so it was ... For their Fire Fairy Assassin, would rest at ease - but grow in Power. For their Fire Fairy Assassin - would rest in peace, but grow in Fury. For their Fire Fairy Assassin - would stand and wait, but grow in Time. And so it was ... Until such time, that she be needed! Now such time ... For then did Ancient-Modern Egypt see - a Sight of Sights :) Egyptian Fire Gates, slowly open - hinging back, left and right. Egyptian Wards, slowly fade - red to black, God and Pharaoh. Egyptian Steps, slowly walked - bottom to top, Egyptian Portal! As after an eternity at rest, did their Egyptian Fire Fairy Assassin - awaken! She knew at once, which foes to slay. She knew at once, which paths to tread. She knew at once, which craft to use. For in Ancient Egypt, foes be plenty ... For King Tut, she slew a War Lord - Armoured Might, he knew no weakness. Her knives were quick, within his back. For Queen Bastet, she slew a Griffin - who answered not, to Queen of Cats. Her boots were stealth, within his liar. For Cleopatra, she slew a Scorpion - he who sunk, Thonis-Heracleion. Her poison was deadly, within his breath. For Pharaohs here, she slew of Warriors - impressive skill, in sword and axe. Her knives were quick, across their necks. For Pharaohs here, she slew of Princes - climbing up, threatened throne. Her boots were stealth, within their beds. For Fire Gods here, she slew of Deities - rising up, threatened worship. Her poison was deadly, within their fountains. And so it was ... For in Modern Egypt, foes be plenty ... For Pyramids here, she slew of Robbers - opening Tombs, threatened Fortune. Her knives were quick, across their chests. For Sphinxes here, she slew of Thieves - opening Heirlooms, threatened Bounty. Her boots were silent, across their floors. For Obelisks here, she slew of Raiders - deciphering Runes, threatened Underworld. Her poison was deadly, within their glasses. And so it was ... For this Fire Fairy Assassin walked within, the Paths of Samurai, and the Paths of Ninja. For this Fire Fairy Assassin walked within, the Paths of Woman, and the Paths of Deadly. For this Fire Fairy Assassin walked within, the Paths of Goddess, and the Paths of Immortal. For this Fire Fairy Assassin walked within, the Paths of Death, and the Paths of Life. As still she does today ... Locked within her Gates of Fire: Watchful Owl - Wards of Fire God, Wards of Pharaoh. Biding time - waiting stasis, waiting now! For an Egyptian - Day of Days :) When King Tut, of Queen Bastet and Cleopatra cry again - we need you!!! Arise!!!

Drago Rosso - Eastern Western Dragon - Stefano Artibani

Here do I find a Dragon, that's just as entwined with Fairy Glamour - as is a Fairy and her Queen:


Drago Rosso - Eastern Western Dragon - Stefano Artibani


There's no doubt that this is a Western Dragon ... This Dragon is covered in Scales, whose red makes me think of the Fires of the Forge. This Dragon is covered in Barbs, whose path makes me think of the Armies of Old. This Dragon is covered in Ridges, whose gleam makes me think of the Ambitious of King. And yet, do I find that this Dragon - has just bathed in the Realms of Fairy Glamour :) For there's no doubt, that this is an Eastern Dragon ... This Dragon is contrasted in Scales, whose blue makes me think of the Cools of the Sea. This Dragon is contrasted in Barbs, whose stance makes me think of the Sirens of the Ocean. This Dragon is contrasted in Ridges, whose rise makes me think of the Lapping of the Tide. Why has Stefano done this? To pull you into his Fantasy Realm, and bring depth to his Artwork. The pull, comes from the shape of this Dragon: a backward C (donned with Barbs), that helps snake you in - to both this Dragon's head, and his Dragon's body. The depth, comes from the height of the Barbs: being taller in the top middle, rotated towards you - I feel as though this Dragon, wants out of the Artwork! Indeed, does Stefano's choice of background, play right into this effect. As with clever use of lighting, upon the cliffs on the top left, contrasted with the darkness/shadows of the cliffs lower right - does it feel as though this Dragon, has just crept around a corner. If that were so, then it's easy to see that this Dragon, has the subtleties of an Eastern - as it's forked tongue, has just been used, with the Patience of the Wise, to snare it's prey! What of Stefano's choice of colour? Given the fact that this Dragon is in the shade, Stefano has had to be careful - to avoid losing the shape of his Dragon. I feel that this has been achieved, in two specific ways. First: the choice to use predominant red scales, with contrasting blue (curving along the Dragon's back). Second: the choice to highlight both red and blue scales, upon their upper most edge - thereby bringing clarity to the dark (especially around the Dragon's eye sockets, and the top right body/neck curve). Overall: an unusual Dragon, that's reminiscent of Lizard - but with traits both Eastern and Western, that goes hand-in-hand with Fairy Glamour :) As you would expect of the Realms of the Faeries, this Dragon has one further twist - the fact that he has no Western Dragon wings! Even so, this does not diminish from the Dragon's powers - as I feel that he can fly, high upon the Magic Winds, of Dragon Rise, in Dragon Land ...
