with thankful heart and joyful mind

There's a very random grouping of gifts at the Snowville Winter Fair in Boutou; all are free, but they're everything from really nice mesh minis to holiday trees to scarves to furry skating skirts. Still, check it out if you're interested, and follow the beacon if you're dropped off at the ballroom, not Santa's workshop.

There are also a few holiday gifts out at OhLaLa--some on the front desk, more under the tree. Again a mixed bag, but interestingly so, at least.

ModaMia also has some gifts out under their tree--they seem to be mostly womenswear separates, holiday corsets and tank tops, with some accessories and I think one stuffed animal? Not sure if it's a teddy bear with a hat, or just a teddy bear package, frankly.

And for the enhanced crowd, there's another grouping of holiday gifts under the S.L.A.D. tree (in Maple Valley, an Adult sim). They're all free, and barring the purely mesh items, they all have Phat Azz appliers, Lolas Tangos appliers, or both. (I noticed at least two skins and a henna tattoo in the mix, as well.)

But what I really want to talk about is fawns.


Specifically, this one. The Fawn of Shiallia.



The Fawn of Shiallia is a magical young creature who gleams with a radiant green glow, sprouts flowers anywhere it walks, adds a regeneration effect to those near it, and heals adventurers with which it travels. It's also the single most expensive pet to acquire during the Winter Festival on Neverwinter.


It's...not always graceful. But more to the point is how the community has taken to this fawn, in...well, very unusual ways. To wit:

And three hours in, they were still going strong. And the next few hours. And later that night. And the next afternoon...And it's still occasionally popping up and taking over chat in the strangest ways.
[Zone] Xeen@mojoslackman: I wanted to type in bold but they don't support that fawnt
[Zone] Kayang@tofumengy: did you say hotel califawnia?
And yes, at this point, even the repeats are repeating. I'm thinking it's becoming pandemic.

Or at least fawndemic.

After all, the first rule of Fawn Club is...never mind.
