Hello!

SO, I've been away for a while, and this seems like a good way to get back into Fawnlings things!

The giveaway


  • 1 x Blackwood doe with Enthralling magic

Please note - this doesn't include a design or a slot! You'll either need to go through the design pool or purchase a bacon design, and you'll need to make sure you have a character slot available

How to Enter


  1. Prepare a character profile, in the format show on the How to get a Fawnling journal:
    How to Get a FawnlingIf you’re interested in getting a fawnling of your very own - hooray! Welcome to the group!
    There are a number of ways that you can get your very own fantastalicious fawnling - whether you want to create a ‘starter’ character from scratch, breed a fawnling from existing characters or even adopt a fawnling that needs a new home.
    Slots
    :new:
    After much discussion, we have decided to make things simpler and got rid of 'starter slots' and 'fawn slots'.
    When you join Fawnlings, you now get EIGHT slots, to fill with whatever type of character you please, whether that's an adult or a fawn! You can purchase up to three more slots using Bacon.
    For more information about buying extra slots, visit the Bacon Journal
    We have dedicated journals that explain the ins and outs of getting a fawnling through each method - so have a read and decide how you want to get your very own magical deer-horse-unicorn-thing!
    <strong>

  2. Save that in sta.sh
  3. Submit it via my google form here

    Click here to submit your entry!

  4. Make sure your bid is in by 19th February 2016 - that's the closing date!

Handy Hints


  • Please think your character concept through - something that's only taken you a few minutes to prepare doesn't stand much of a chance of winning!
  • You stand a lower chance of winning if you already have one of the following
    • a Blackwood doe
    • a Princess doe
    • a Blackwood with Enthralling magic
  • I like older characters
  • Enthralling magic is super fun - please try to include how your character uses it (or doesn't, a character that hates their own magic might be fun...) in your bid
  • If you have a character concept in mind that has links to other pre-existing characters that's great - make sure you include that in your bid!
  • Please don't give the doe illusion magic as a second strain. Enthralling should really be enough for one character, and you will stand zero chance of winning if you do this.
  • Concise, easy to read profiles will stand a better chance of winning than extremely long ones! I have a short attention span, anything more than 1500 words or so is too long for me ;)
  • HAVE FUN :D

:new: There have so far been zero bids for this lovely lady! There are still three weeks to get your bids in, so you've still got plenty of time! :new:

Anedele | Doe | Princess by Teair

So, at some stage a while back the lovely Teair sadly left fawnlings, and returned Anedele to me for rehoming as I originally put up the bacon for her purchase. Because I've been away for a while I haven't done anything about it until now.

How to Apply

  1. Write up a quick profile for Anedele in your own words and submit it to sta.sh writer
  2. Either doodle up an image or write up a story for Anedele and submit to sta.sh
  3. Send me a note with the following information
      Link to sta.sh profile: (pop in the link to the profile you've prepared for her)
      Link to story or artwork: (stick the link for your artwork or story)
      Why do you want Anedele? (tell me why you want to adopt this lovely lady!)
  4. I'll list bids I've received at the bottom of this journal :)

The auction will close on 29th February 2016

If no suitable bids are received, I will return Anedele to the Fawnlings group for rehoming.

Need to know info

  • Anedele has an in-game son in the form of Lord Ciardair
    Lord Ciardair | Stag | Royal by ScunnyElse
  • She has one NPC son
  • She has an in-game Princess daughter in the form of Princess Adalia
    Adalia|Princess Doe| Glenmore by swan107
  • She is a close relation of the somewhat-disgraced Princess Myrna, the noble guardsmen Aeker and Aedan, and the Lords Lorik  and Loegaire

  • She is 24 years old and her mate is deceased - that means unless Rafe wants to get rid of a former rival's mother by giving her to a low-ranking lord, she's unlikely to be rebetrothed or have any other children! However, she is probably still fertile so this is a good opportunity for plotting :D
  • She is very traditional in her personality
  • She is an advanced level magic user

The world had been very still, these past years.

Here in her shaded glade in the hollow, with her son curled at her hip and her daughter draped across her shoulder, she should have been happy. She should have been in a dream of love and delight to have her children, her beloved ones, so close at hand, so safe, so secure… but now, there was nothing to fear. Nothing to hide from. No breath of wind to catch a leaf, no bolt of lightning to set a heart aflame...

Before, all about her had been in motion. Her daughter, the wind, the storm, the herds - all moving, all in turmoil, all tossed and turned and tumbled about by the hurricane. There was no rest, no space, no time to think or feel; only the thunder and lightning, the flash of hooves, the gasp of the storm stealing your breath, the all consuming passion of a tempest that rushed towards you; towards her. Towards her alone.

And the tempest had died, sudden and silent, it had ripped itself away from the land, away from her, away from her daughter and her son and dashed itself against the cliffs in a mean-spirited and wild-hearted abandon. She had one night, only, of happiness, one night of love, one night of family, and then the storm stole away.

The storm died, and part of her died with it.

She pretended. She played that there was still magic in the world, that her daughter and her son did not terrify her with their strange powers - she loved them with the strength of a hurricane and the force of a gale, she would die for them as he had for her; but they scared her more than he ever had. What was to happen, to her daughter, orbited by stones and leaves and friends only with a simpleton, and to her son, the strange, aloof, proud young colt whose mastery of magic surpassed that of even some grown stags?

She still walked up the mountain in the Winter. She still guarded the Hollow in the Summer and the Spring.

She was still a Thunderhead, she still had her magic, but the storm was dead and gone. What was magic when there was no storm to command it? What was her power when still, still no Stormcaller could dare to take his place?

The hurricane had gone.

The war was over.

They were safe.

They were the dead who dream of living.

They were fallen leaves, dreaming of being tossed in the storm.

Lineera | Doe | Shaman by femalefred
Lineera | Doe | Shaman
New reference. Not sure about the anatomy. Oh well, first time doing a fawnling in... three months xP

No horn because I'm lazy.

This is a one layer painting aside from the paint, which took three layers by itself. Derp xP Paint design is by a combination of TigressDesign (facepaint, beads in the tail), strideroo (facepaint, swirly galaxy on the bell) and leenei (sparklestars on neck and legs) - go tell them all how awesome they are!

If you're interested, here's the one layer painting without paint: Linna Nopaint by femalefred



Name: Lineera
Nickname: Linna
Height: 9hh
Gender: Doe
Colour: Classic Cream Champagne Dun Smoky Fawn
Genetics: EE/aa/nCr/nCh/DD/ff/fwsfws
Build: Light

Age: Born Late Spring, 742 of the New Age (21)

Bloodline: 100% Oakfern
Herd: Oakfern
Position: Shaman

Personality: 
Linna, although a firm follower of Gealach and a loyal member of the Oakfern herd, is not quite what she seems. Tall and gangly, she may have been picked on as a fawn if it weren't for the fact that her mother - Sybill, a scout and fawn-taker - used to take the pale filly with her on scouting trips, and so the youngster developed a thirst for the outside world. The caves are safe and welcoming to her, but they are not home: if it were acceptable to be so among her herd she would be almost nomadic. This was in contrast to her mother, who secretly loathed leaving the caves and went only in order to serve Gealach's will. This eventually came up in conversation, when Linna was around 3 - both Sybill and Linna are calm, un-passionate does. Neither was terribly distressed, both were sad, but they parted ways fairly amicably. 
As she was now exploring outside alone - as she was so rarely seen around the Moonpool previously, her absences were not thought unusual - she began to practice her newly flourishing water magic skill. She is a focussed practitioner of her magic now, drawn from many years of practice to make sure that she was safe when exploring. She has an iron will when it comes to her magic and is able to focus almost completely on the movement, control and sensing of water without distraction.
Magic is perhaps the only thing that Linna can completely focus on - she is easily distracted by changes in the light or the chattering of birds. She is difficult to converse with as, even if she is not distracted by changes in the physical world, she is often deep within her own head, trying to understand the fawnling she is speaking to but without actually speaking to them. Perhaps because of this easy distraction she is not so averse to Oathbreakers as others of her herd - or she wasn't, before the birth of her daughter. Since La'Neiya's birth Linna has returned much more to the ways of her herd, and since her experiences in Blackwood with the Oathbreaker and the Paleface, she has become almost blindly devout. 
It is clear that the time above ground and her daughter's subsequent rejection has affected her deeply, however - she often has nightmares, and the thought of harm coming to her new son almost paralyses her with fear. At the sight of any young doe she is instantly captivated, hoping that it is her little love, only to be disappointed each time - La'Neiya, it seems, will not return to her.

Family:
Sybill - NPC Mother, Fawntaker and Scout, deceased
Unknown - NPC Father, Shaman
La'Neiya - Daughter, hind
Berserkir - son, yearling

History: 
Lineera was born the daughter of a fawntaker and a shaman - two relatively powerful fawnlings in the herd, but neither particularly special. Sybill had no real interest in her mate, and he no real interest in his daughter, and so Lineera never met her father. This never really caused her any pain, or sadness - there was too much of life to be interested in. Sybill would bring her daughter with her on journeys to the surface - exploring the jungles of Oakfern or raiding deep in enemy territory - and Lineera was captivated.
Sybill, like Lineera, had a love for the open sky - this, rather than any religious devotion, had been the reason for her to become a fawntaker. She and Linna would even spend time above ground during the daylight at times - almost a sacrilidge, but neither doe found any wrong in it. Despite this - or perhaps somehow because of it - Linna drew the attention of the shamans. In order to survive above ground, her mother had taught her how to use her innate magic. The burgeoning young strength of her power and the paleness of her coat - and perhaps the huge, moon-like eyes - made her a suitable choice to join the ranks of the shamans, and so from age five she trained among them, venturing out less regularly but still far more frequently than might be considered safe.
When she was formally recognised as a shaman in her own right, her dedication to Oakfern began to wane. She spent more time above ground, she spoke to fawnlings from other herds as though they were not Oathbreakers... it was only when, while exploring the rich rainforests of her home territory, she found and ate a large, sweet and sticky fruit that was probably somewhat fermented that things changed. She was visited by a 'vision' of Gealach - in reality it was more likely a drunken dream, visited upon her by her own guilty conscious. Gealach repeated the legend of her people to the Shaman, and though she did not return below ground she became more cautious, and more devout.
In her fourteenth year, for the first time she found herself feeling the call of rut. After a brief dalliance with a stag, she found herself pregnant, and almost at once she felt the call of the open sky. She left the caverns when her belly was fat and swollen, and her daughter was born in the warm forests of Silverthorne. Life above ground with a fawn was a great deal harder than alone; she and La'Neiya struggled to find food and shelter - the landscape became hostile and unpleasant.. and then came the Oathbreaker. A Blackwood stag, half her size again, bored down upon them with great fury for invading his territory and Linna told her daughter to run. 
Sending her daughter away was the most painful, foolish decision that she had ever made, and the pale doe passed nearly a year in the Blackwood, shivering and miserable, pining for her daughter. It was only after she heard the whispers of a shaman - a shaman of Uir, the Blackwood's false Mother Goddess - who could guide a fawnling to speak to their god, that she found her way home. Zeytin, the palefaced shaman in question, gave her to Gealach, and Gealach called her home.
Her return, however, was far from triumphant. She erupted from the Moonpool during a sacrifice, carried there by underground rivers flushed with Spring snowmelt, and doubt was cast upon her at once. This doe was a shaman long presumed dead - how could she return? Her devotion to the God was her only saving grace - she was not welcomed, but she was accepted. Her relationship with her daughter though, had been damaged too badly. La'Neiya had been too young and Lineera too damaged for either to understand the breach, and La'Neiya refused to see her mother on her return. Wounded and desperate, the Shaman sought comfort in the only way she knew - and so she fell pregnant once more, a new child who would love her unconditionally, who would not refuse her adoration and would be by her side forever.
And so it was that two seasons later her precious song, Berserkir, was born.

Oakfern Shaman Paint Design - WINNER(ish)

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 19, 2015, 4:35 PM


WINNER



:new:SO I AM RUBBISH :D

I ran this contest, then forgot I was, then completely vanished.

All three entries were fantastic, and I think I will actually be using a combination of the three entries in Linna's new paint design!

As a result I'll be gifting all three of you one Rare Bacon Reward!
Now go celebrate :D

So, after my journal saying I'm not going to be around very much I'm posting another journal. Because I'm awesome xD

I am looking for a new Oakfern paint design for my Oakfern Shaman doe Lineera:
Lineera | Doe | Shaman by femalefred

For the first time, Linna is going to start being a proper shaman, and that means having proper shaman paint.

The paint should be intricate and dazzling, and if possible should make her look like a walking galaxy.

The problem with this is that Linna is pretty... well, there's not a lot of her to put paint onto. She's gained a little weight since that last reference image, but not a whole lot, so it's difficult to make intricate patterns that don't just become blobs on her little narrow frame. As a result I've struggled with this somewhat xP

What I'm offering to the winner...


Basically I have a ton of bacon lying around so I'm going to grant one Rare Bacon Reward of your choice to the person who comes up with the design I choose!

How to enter


  • Download these lines:
    Linna Paint Base by femalefred
  • :new: Feel totally free to change the colour of the base and/or background because I realise it's really hard to see a light-blue paint glow on a light grey base. Sorry xP
  • Put your paint design onto them
  • Make your design as intricate and galaxy-like as you can
  • Comment here or note me with your design by midnight GMT on 31st October 2015

Hints and tips


  • Linna will only use one colour of paint - it's a very light blue
  • The design should be night sky related
  • Don't show the glow on the paint design - it makes it harder to see!
  • You can feel free to incorporate Linna's current paint design - which is basically just her head, dunked in a bucket of paint xP
  • I'm unlikely to pick a design that has paint on any of Linna's long hair because I find that really difficult to reproduce :XD:
If you have any questions, let me know!

Entrants


Wheee, entries already!
