Fantasy Faire 2017: The Crow Tengu

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: There once was a young Crow Tengu who was told by his parents to stay away from humans, (the Tengu were forbidden from interfering in human affairs). But he simply could not obey the rules. His heart belonged to a little girl with a laugh that sounded like the call of crows. Adorable. To him, she was one of them, even if she had no feathers. It all started one day when he was out scouting the mountain. Tucked deep in the forest by a babbling brook, was a small human nest. There was a sickly looking girl sitting outside alone. Being curious, he flew down and asked her what she was doing. She explained she was gravely ill and her parents were both working hard to earn enough money to treat her illness. He shook his feathers in confusion at the difficulties of human rituals, but before he could ask about it, a rain of questions showered down on him. Since he liked the attention, he told her stories about himself, his people, and their oral history. She hung on his every word. Her eyes, which seemed so dull before, now sparked with life. So each day he would fly back to his number one fan and tell her a new story. By the time fall came, she had made a full recovery and would return to school. The crows too were preparing to fly south for the winter. With a big hug, she thanked him for keeping her spirits up. He fluffed out his chest in pride, and then plucked out one of his feathers to give her, "Always remember me." He felt sad their storytime was ending. She laughed her adorable crow laugh, said it was impossible for her to ever forget him. ...Many years later she wrote a best selling children's book, "The Many Wild and Wonderful Tales of the Crow Tengu."

Fantasy Faire 2017: The Violinist of Venice

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Water lapped at the edges of the Piazza San Marco as the night sky softened to pinks and purples. A lone figure emerged from the shadows carrying a violin case and music stand. He was dressed in formal clothes from another time period. In any other city, he would have drawn stares however this was Venice. Wearing a mask was not considered odd either. As the man took off his cloak, and positioned his music stand, several locals quickly took up best sitting spots nearby. They knew to expect his exquisite concerts in the spring. And he did not disappoint. His music was so powerful, several women tried to discreetly wipe away their tears. Money began to fill his violin case. There were murmurs he was someone famous, but no one really knew. He didn't talk much, just nodded and said thank you, He always took his earnings to the nuns at St. Mark's Basilica and asked them to donate it for him to cancer research. The nuns knew to not ask questions, but surely his heartfelt music reflected a soul grieving the loss of someone dear.

2066: Geisha of Debtors Prison

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Rain fell gently into the rejuvenation pool. It was a special lubricant for the joints of androids, and cyborgs. His constant companions, Gertie 1 and 2 sighed joyfully. More accurately they were the jail-keepers of his personal hell. He would never get used to it, this artificial prison of a body he inhabited. It was one year ago, when he was given a choice: Die from his injuries in debtors' prison, or willingly submit to full cyberization to work off his debts. What was his crime for such a horrendous sentence? He refused to pay the Cyber Mafia over a lost bet. The Deathmatch between BattleBot EVA and the vampire was obviously rigged. So he threw his scumbag loan shark into the display case for some silly ancient relic. And for that crime, he was turned from a bearded hard drinking gambler into the sleek androgynous Gynoid Geisha no.10023. His only purpose was to please the twisted kinks of his master, Kujo, ringleader of the Cyber Mafia. Was it fair? Hell no. But the cops weren't coming to save him. He signed paperwork making the cyberization legal. Besides, he was just a brain lodged inside a very expensive polycarbonate body now, literally the property of Kujo. What was left to save? He died. And the worst part was, (or was it the best part?), he felt less and less like the person he used to be. Was it true that a person's identity was created by how they looked and how people reacted to that appearance? He saw the world with new eyes, and not just because they were digital. People saw him with new eyes too. He would never admit he didn't completely hate it. ...Still, he secretly wished Gertie would look away so he could kill the mean son-of-bitch who did this to him.
