While most Virilen celebrations involve music–particularly in the lower villages–there is one holiday that was set in place specifically to celebrate music itself, and the Virilen Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Days 5 & 6 – 2019”
Hello, fine humans, and welcome to part 5 of “Archer has been tagged for the Liebster Award.” XD (If you’d told me even last year that I’d know enough people to be tagged for the same recurring tag five times by five different people… I’d probably have laughed.) Anyway, since the questions are always different I don’t actually mind doing this tag over and over, I just find it a little amusing that it keeps coming around. BUT MOVING ON BECAUSE I’M RAMBLING.
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. Thanks, Eden! :D
2. Display your award.
3. Answer the questions you were asked.
4. Nominate five bloggers.
5. Ask 6 new questions.
6. Let your nominees know they were tagged.
1. Who or what inspired you to start blogging? Continue reading “The Liebster Award #5”
There’s no music-based magic in Virilia, no. In Teraco (which is significantly westward of Virilia) there’s a race of Harlequins who possess illusion magic and sometimes use music to focus it–violins and flutes are especially popular among Harlequins–but unfortunately, none of my worlds include legitimately music-based magic (yet).
Does your world feature any music-based magic? I’d love to hear about it down in the comments!
And don’t forget that you can submit prompts! There are three “extra” days in October which aren’t part of an official Promptober week (thank you, Anne, for this term!), and I’ll be featuring reader-submitted prompts for those days. All you have to do is submit a prompt below, but you can improve your chances of getting your prompt chosen by sharing about and participating in Preptober Prompts. The three readers who are chosen will get special graphics for their prompts, and if they’re bloggers then their blogs will be featured. Any prompts not chosen will be compiled into a list as a bonus for those who want extra prompts. Sound cool? Submit a prompt below!
Note: I do reserve the right to remove from the drawing anyone I can’t find a prompt for or whose prompt doesn’t fit Preptober.
In Virilia’s lower villages, music is viewed as a form of expression and entertainment, and it’s acknowledged by the Virilens as a way of bringing people together. It’s primarily something done for fun, though artistry is definitely involved and musicians strive to learn as much as they can about their instruments. They often ascribe to a “Learn the rules before you break them” philosophy when it comes to music.
In the upper cities, music is still Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Day 3 – 2019”
In the lower villages of Virilia, music is something that brings communities together. Lower village communities are always fairly close-knit, but music is one of the things that always brings a village’s members to one place and helps Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Day 2 – 2019”
