Have you ever made someone worship you, adore you or believe you were the center of the universe? How did you do it, and why?
Of course I have. I do it constantly. Becoming the object of worship and adoration is really not all that difficult. You either have the skillset necessary to being either of these things, or you don’t. ‘How’ is just a question of who the audience is, what they want and my giving them some notion that they might actually be able to attain it through me. Whether they actually do or not depends greatly upon my inclination, my affections and my mood.
‘Why’, you ask?
Why not? Or better still – Why wouldn’t I?
Muse: Fanny Fae / Faelyn
Fandom: Original Charcater / Folklore / Mythology
“Are you going to kill me next,” Kazzim asked. He was never more regal than he was now, even as I must have appeared never more ruthless and frightening. In his gaze I saw reflected the fears and doubts of every inhabitant of the Fortunate Island.
“No,” I said softly as one of my waiting women attached the diadem and insignia of High Lady of the Island,”Morgienne was the only one left that was complicit in this. You were cleared, as the others who were not are already dead
It is sometimes difficult to write for a muse who refuses to participate in so much that she finds to be beneath what she would consider to be ‘dignified’. Fanny’s headmate, nomanselizabth isn’t nearly so uptight about adulation and being mentioned.
As Fanny and Elizabeth’s mun, I would like to say a heartfelt and grateful, ‘thank you’, to those who nominated them. I am completely humbled by the mentions in the numbers of categories that they were nominated in. I have always considered myself a writer, even if I am not the most talented one. It’s what I do and I love doing it. I will confess, however, that I am surrounded by writers in the various communities that put my work to shame and many whose writing I admire and am in awe of and inspired by. They inspire me to strive to be a better writer, as well as the enjoyment I get from reading their work. This year’s nominations could not go by without my mentioning at least a few of the people that have made this year an absolute joy as far as writing and roleplay.
The most amazing and giving people have come out of this year. I am grateful to everyone. To civ_barbarian, the_countmc and most especially to all_forme. You are all amazing, loving, and giving people and I give thanks for you for having given me and my muse the opportunity to explore her past. To grissom_tm, to little_immie and to saintly_da, thank you for some amazing RP threads both in and out of our character’s respective canons. This goes doubly for _call_me_snake_, who is absolutely adored by Elizabeth as her favourite rogue. Although Fanny has not quite gotten a handle on what to think of him! 😉
There are so many more that Fanny looks forward to exploring new friendships with such as ambitious_woman and thisway_comes and sadist_whore come immediately to mind. I would also like to give a special shout out to the mun of the muse dr_luka_kovac. In addition to writing a fabulously detailed canon character, they have tirelessly helped me manage and moderate , which is also up for a nomination this year. That is pretty inspiring, considering we just started! Our goal is to keep it interesting and inspire people to want to show up at the page and write, and I am grateful to know that somebody out there thinks we are doing that.
There is so much more to say, so many to thank, but I thank the Gods for each and every one of you every day. You have been a gift in every sense of the word. Thank you to each and every one of you.
