August approaches…

img_bee01And with it comes the sweet smell of lavender, the lazy hum of bumble bees and that rich golden, sunlight that sets the world aglow. And that is essence that I’ve tried to capture in the new colour and graphic theme for the site.

I wish you all a lovely, golden August filled with long days of reading and day dreaming, and the scent of lavender.

Enjoy!

New Theme

books2Due to me messing up the old theme’s PHP-files, I have had to update and change the theme to a new one. This, called Skirmish, is made for WordPress and hopefully it will work a little better with any new widget we might chose to install in the future.

To all of you who miss the old theme with its graphic based largely on the use of different texures, all I can say is, I miss it too. It was based on an old theme originally intended for e107 and it gave me a lot more control over the looks of the site. But I am sure that once I’ve gotten used to the snappy mordern feel of Skirmish I’ll be able to make it look a little less like any WordPress blog out there and more like the Faery Court we’re used to.

Aside from a lack of personal flavour, I have to admit I like the clean cut design and I am happy with the new graphic, inspired by old books and the fresh flowers of spring.

Best Regards,
Sharma Wild

It’s Spring Dammit!

tumblr_m3ciu6609B1qggdq1The weather outside might still be grey, cold and wet, but here on the Faery Court spring has arrived! As always we celebrate the change of season with a new theme and a renewed wish that our little community will grow and evolve.

At the moment we have three very active members, myself included, and a couple of old friends lurking in the shadows. We have a growing library of fan fiction set in the worlds of Mass Effect, Dragon Age and Assassins Creed.  At the moment it is all kept on the private part of the board, but we’ll try to get something up for you to read here on the open part of the Faery Court.

On a more personal note, I have started working on one of my old stories. It started out as a short story but it is growing into a novel. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish it and perhaps even publish it sometime this year. I’m holding my fingers crossed. :)

Best Regards,
Sharma

Happy Holidays!

poe2We have left the warmth and light of summer behind and entered the dark months of the year… Now is the time to tell ghost stories and rekindle our relationship with the werewolf and the vampire. But it is also the time to light candles and give ourselves over to the magic of Christmas. 

We decorate our homes, we set our tables and present a cornucopia of delicious treats and dishes, we give and receive gifts… Every family has its own traditions when it comes to celebrate Christmas – traditions that let us connect to our childhood, and to the loved ones we have lost. We feel close to those who came before us and we celebrate the light and love they passed on, and we create new memories and new traditions to be handed down to the new generations.

Here on the Faerycourt we have only one tradition: a new theme to reflect the change of the seasons. Our Winter-theme is inspired by the world of fairytales and of times past.

I also want to take this opportunity to present two new members: Cyan, who joined us earlier this year, and Fallen Angel, who was a member on the old site and who has returned to, hopefully, add his creativity to ours.

As always I hope the Faerycourt will continue to be a place of wild imaginations and flights of fancy, of poetry and beauty both dark and light. If anything I hope we can inspire you to read and write and add your own kind of beauty to this world.

How ever you celebrate Christmas, I wish you one of magic and light.

With love,
Sharma

Happy Walpurgis Night!!

It is the eve of May Day. Here in Sweden we celibrate by lighting bonfires and singing songs. And by drinking too much and raising hell. I think it’s the viking heritage.lol Personallay I’m going to spend this evening with a tub of B&J Cookie dough ice cream, sorting through my books. I’m moving to a small house with a tiny garden in about two weeks time. I can’t wait! I’ve wanted to move away from the city for so long and now it’s finally happening!

I couldn’t let the season change go unnoticed and so I have updated the Faery Court theme. This new set of graphic and colours are inpsired by the Bohemian era of the 19th century. I hope you enjoy it.

Best regards,

Sharma
