This is sooo not what I had planned for my One Hundreth post. It will be 101 instead.
I awoke yesterday morn and read the missives that had arrived for me during my night's repose. When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but an announcement that I won the election for the new position of Co-leader of the Fae for the fair Kingdom of Aglarond!!
I was quite amazed, flabbergasted even! I just sat there stunned for the longest time! I didn't even finish reading the post just then. I diverted myself with other things for over an hour, before I ventured back to my email and read the entire announcement. I then saw one asking me to get in touch ASAP. Thus began my day.
I was a Duchess, Head of a Household in Gamilia, my first role play sim. I was recruited to Aglarond shortly before Gamilia folded.
It is similar to being an officer in a group that you care about and then not only stepping down from the office, but moving away and starting over. I packed away my cornets after Gamilia folded and eventually got used to wearing fanciful circlets and flowers rather than the metal circlets. I got one out and dusted it off last night. Somehow it felt a bit heavier this time, but it settled into place. I can only hope my new role settles onto my shoulders as easily as the cornet did upon my forehead.
I was added to a group - of course. This is SL - what position does not include at least one new group? (make that two new groups) I looked over the related groups I'm in to see how my role titles had changed and what abilities I had now. How strange to be a "race leader" (Ag council) and a "realm leader" (kingdom). Those are the ones that struck me the most other than Banrion na Fae (Queen of the Fae) !!!
All of a sudden I went from a person of no consequence, to a fae queen !!! OMG!! Five of us submitted our names for consideration. I was quite surprised and pleased with the wonderful vote of confidence I received!
