Faerie Travelogue: Magickal Adventures in Portland

It was Cinco de Mayo – Starcat and BlackLion’s 7th anniversary.

Our faerie mission was to head to the city of Portland, Maine and meet a gnome friend who needed our magickal assistance.

In his downtown flat, we met him in a frantic state. He had heard that someone was trying to capture him and he wanted our help to create a spell for his protection.

He warned BlackLion not to stomp on the flower faeries along the way though.

Our next spell component was the sound of a wind chime singing from the ocean breeze.

We were curious as to why we needed to find an “onion” ring on the Portland Fire Boat.

When we arrived, we found a different food ring, an “orange” ring, so we grabbed the life preserver for our nervous gnome friend, just in case.

Next, we were told to get assistance near the invisible airship’s anchor, but not to try and take it with us.

Starcat soothed the lions by petting them because they became scaredy cats for a brief time after their offering.
