Happy Autumn/Spring Equinox!


, , , , , ,

Fly with you all,

For all of you people in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring is quite likely finally underway, with nature waking up from it’s Winter slumber after several months of cold and in some cases, snow. Happy Spring Equinox to all of you!

As for everyone like me, living in the Southern Hemisphere, Happy Autumn Equinox! As I write this, well-needed rain falls outside my bedroom window, and the weather is finally staring to cool down.

If I had to pick a favourite season, I’m pretty sure I’d choose Autumn. The temperatures in Summer and Winter are much too extreme, and whilst Spring brings much beauty, it also brings my hay fever about, whereas Autumn – it’s cooler, but not quite freezing, with lots of rainy days perfect for sitting in a blanket with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book or movie.  😉

What about you? What is your favourite season? Which Equinox are you celebrating right now? Let me know in the comments.  🙂

See you ’round the waterfall,

Letting Go – Poem


, , , , , ,

Hi everyone,

So the title kind of gives it away, but I’m back with another poem!  😛

This one was inspired by a piece of music that is, coincidentally, called ‘Letting Go’. It’s a really lovely piece of music and one of my favourites. If you’d like, you can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnLV5RDVkRo

Anyway, I hope you enjoy.  🙂

Letting Go

It’s always hard to say goodbye
It doesn’t matter who, or what
Or when or where or why
In the end, goodbye is goodbye…
A farewell can be said in many words
Or be over in just one
But no matter the amount of words
To some degree, it always hurts…
But despite all this, there are some times
Letting go can prove best
For as old doors close, new ones open
Leading to new friendships,
New opportunities, new ideas –
Take them, seize them, use them.
It’s never easy to say goodbye,
Never easy to write an ending,
But sometimes, it’s what is needed
To write a new beginning.


Before I wrap up this post, a couple of quick things:

Firstly, I’d like to take the chance to answer the question I received on my 100 followers post, which was from the lovely Rachel. She asked:

How long does it take you to write a poem?

Well, it varies, but generally it isn’t too long. Unlike writing stories, which take a lot of planning and editing, I tend to write poetry in the moment, when I’m feeling really inspired to express my thoughts or feelings on a particular topic. After finishing a poem, I usually go over it to check for any spelling or grammatical errors and make to sure it flows well. All up, it only really takes me a couple of hours on average to write a poem. I hope this answers you question!  🙂

And finally, you may or may not have heard, but the PBC now has a discord server! Credit goes to the wonderful Phoebe Bumbleflip, who had the idea. For those who don’t know, discord is a free online chatting and messaging site, which only requires a username, password and email in order to sign up, and it’s also a bit more secure than Hangouts. If you’d like to join, you can click the link here: https://discord.gg/AHpqeku

Until next time,

Pixie Chat Discord Server

Feel free to join!

Remember Pixie Hollow

For those of you who do not know, the pixie chat was a google hangout that was created for the PBC. It got stolen, then remade, then stolen again, because google hangouts allows anyone to remove people and change the name. So i had the idea to make a pixie chat on Discord, which is a thing where you can voice chat and message people, but only the staff can remove people and change the name and stuff. It is free to get, and I put the link to join below.

Tribes – Rose’s Guide


, , , , , , , ,

Hi everyone,

For once, I’ve actually managed to keep my word and post something when I said I would! I feel quite proud.  😛

So yes, this is the new part of Rose’s Guide I mentioned in my last post. As always, you can click on the link towards the end of the post to check out the rest, or you can go via the Forgotten Tales tab at the top of the page. Enjoy!

The Tribal Era

As the population of Neverland continued to grow, pixies began to spread out across the island to put their new-found Talents to use. With a great deal of fairies and sparrowmen wielding the Talents of Water, Animal, Garden and Light, a group of Talents that came to be known under the category of nature magic, these pixies were able to melt the ice and snow that covered the land, bringing sun and warmth to Neverland for three cycles of the moon and resting on the fourth. As the land was no longer so harsh, both Clumsies and pixies alike were able to explore the island, and many began to live outside of the Pixie Dust Forest, and the high numbers of Tinker Talents aided in the swift building of new pixish settlements.

Most groups settled near pixie dust trees, so they were able to continue to fly and use their Talents, whilst others chose to only use magic when necessary, and established their homes further away from the trees. Over time, these communities began to take on names, with each group pledging to maintain and protect their area of land. This marked the end of the Fae Ages and the beginning of the Tribal Era in pixish history…

Doctor Who Soundtracks – Rose’s Top 10


, , , , , , , , , ,

Fly with you all,

So recently I found out that Murray Gold will be stepping down from composing the music for Doctor Who after around 13 years in the role. I love the music he’s created for the series and I’m really sad to see him go, so today, as I tribute to the work he’s done over the years, I’ve decided to share my top 10 favourite pieces that Murray Gold has composed.

I don’t think I could ever rank my favourites, so there’s no particular order to these.  😉

NOTE: The following may include some spoilers for Doctor Who. Read at you own risk.

Let’s begin, shall we?


Doctor Who Theme – Series 4 Opening

Let’s start with a well-known piece – the Doctor Who theme song. By far my favourite opening for Doctor Who, I can’t help but dance along to this version every time it plays… Which can cause some problems as it’s also my ringtone.  😛



Doomsday Theme from ‘Doomsday’

We’re only on number two, and I’m already bringing out the sad songs.  😛

Despite how upset I was after watching Rose’s departure in season 2 (I cried – a lot), I almost instantly feel in love with this soundtrack. Tenrose is one of my OTPs and I feel that this music captured the tragedy of the event perfectly. If I’m ever in need of a sad song, this is one of my go-to pieces.



This is Gallifrey: Our Childhood, Our Home from the end of series 3

It’s almost as if this piece tells the story of Gallifrey and the Time Lords by itself. I find the song incredibly inspiring and have listened to it on many occasions whilst writing.



Together Or Not At All from ‘The Angels Take Manhattan’

I know I mentioned this song in my last top ten post, but it is one of my favourite pieces from Doctor Who, so here it is again. Like the Doomsday theme, it does not help with my emotional state when watching the episode. The climax gets me every time. I also actually learnt this piece on the piano a couple of years ago and played it for a music assessment.  😛



I Am the Doctor, from the 11th Doctor’s era

Another really inspirational piece which I think really does represent the Doctor and all he is. I’d love to be able to play this on piano too someday, but it’s a bit too complicated for me at this point in time, as you can imagine – there’s so many instruments performing and different parts to this song, so trying to interpret all of that to be played on a single instrument makes it pretty advanced (or maybe it’s just that I’m terrible at piano).



The Long Song from ‘The Rings Of Akhaten’

I found this song before I’d even watched the episode, and, like the Doomsday Theme, instantly fell in love with it. It’s a very powerful piece that goes with a very powerful speech.



The Doctor’s Save Gallifrey from ‘The Day of the Doctor’

I love this piece – it’s similar to I Am the Doctor, but even more epic. When I’m playing video games that involve battles, I’ll often play this song to increase the epic-ness.  😛


The Ninth Doctor’s Theme from series 1

Eerie, mysterious and a little sad – I personally think there’s no better piece to represent the Ninth Doctor. In the series ten Christmas special they played this piece, and I was not prepared. They played a few other pieces from earlier series too, which now makes sense, as not only was it was the final Doctor Who episode Murray Gold would compose for, which makes it all the more sad. (Where did I put those tissues again?)



Vale Decem from ‘The End of Time (Part 2)’

I get chills every time I listen to this, not to mention intense attacks of feels. Ten has been my favourite incarnation of the Doctor so far and it was very emotional to watch him go. This music does not help with my already fragile state when watching that episode.



Always The Doctor from ‘The Time of the Doctor’

This is such a sad yet beautiful piece, that fit so well with the powerful speech the 11th Doctor gave before his regeneration, with a little reference to the Long Song towards the end as well.


In hindsight, I probably should have mentally prepared better for writing up this post as I forgot how many feels listening to all these pieces give me…  😛

A little fun fact – turns out Murray Gold worked on the movie Hoodwinked Too! as well (this sparked my interest as my siblings have been watching that movie a lot lately).

A couple of updates before I sign off:

First up, the Forgotten Tales. Obviously, publishing a new section of Rose’s Guide before I had to return to school didn’t work out for several reasons, and had to be pushed back a bit. However, I’ve finally got all the bits and pieces together for it, so I’m aiming to get it out in the next week or so.

Secondly, in regards to the possible Q&A post I mentioned at the end of my last post, I’ve gotten a total of one question so far. Yay me!  😛

At this point in time (unless I get additional questions between now and then), this means that I’m probably going to scrap the idea of a Q&A post, and I will answer the question I received in my next poetry post, as it was poetry related. If you do have any questions you’d like to ask, however, feel free to leave them in the comments section below.  😉


Finally, a direct thank you to Murray Gold, for composing such wonderful music for the series over the years. It’s a part of what makes Doctor Who, Doctor Who. We’ll all miss you, and I wish you the best for the future.  🙂

Until next time,

– Rose  ❤


100 Thank Yous for 100 Followers


, , ,

(‘Yous’ is such a strange looking word, don’t you think?)

It’s funny – here I am, trying to write a post to express my thanks for this milestone and I honestly just can’t find the words.

I know in the grand scheme of things, 100 followers isn’t a massive number – there people out there with thousands, even millions of people following their content – but as I once heard someone say, if you imagined 100 people in a room, you suddenly realise that’s still a lot of people. 100 people’s days that I have a chance to brighten.

When I published my very first post way back on March 29, 2014, (nearly four years ago!) I was simply hoping to find a way to cope with losing a game, an escape from reality, that had meant, and still does, a lot to me. Back then, I was only just beginning to discover my passion for writing. The Forgotten Tales was an unknown concept, and if you’d told me I’d start writing poetry, I would probably have laughed at the insanity of it.

Now, here we are, four years on, and (as I always feel the need to in these posts – seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you are sick to death of me doing this by now) I honestly want to thank all of you for reading what I write, following or not, for putting up with putting up with my fangirling and for tolerating my terrible posting schedule and countless spelling mistakes. Having that chance to brighten other people’s days really brightens my own day.  🙂

To celebrate this milestone, I’d like to open up the comments section for a Q&A post. If you have any questions to ask me regarding just about any topic under the sun, leave a comment below. (Nothing asking for personal information though!)

Finally, to finish off, here’s a quick haiku:


Never did I think

I’d get here, so thanks so much

For sticking around!


Until next time,

Rose MorningMist  ❤


Look, See, Live – Poem


, , , , , ,

Fly with you all,

You know how at the beginning of my holidays, I promised a new Forgotten Tales content and a poem before I went back to school?

Well, I’m here to make good on (half of) that promise! (I mean I go back to school in like four days so I’m cutting it close… But that’s not important, right?)  😛

So this was a poem I started back at the beginning of December during a trip to Sydney, and finally had the chance to finish it on another trip to Sydney yesterday. I hope you like it.  🙂

Look, See, Live

Each day,
We go about our lives,
Focusing on our destinations
Our days become a blur;
Our eyes glaze as we see
The familiar scenery
On our drive to work, to school,
And back home again
Each day
We go about our lives,
And fail to see
The world around us,
The life that’s passing by
Instead of focusing
On what’s ahead,
For once, try focusing
On the now instead
Look around and see
The leaves on nearby trees;
How they catch the sun
After the early morning’s rain
Look around and see
The tall city buildings;
Their designs, old and new
Look up and see
The shape of the clouds
And the images they make,
See the stars at night
And imagine the worlds
They could hold
Look for opportunities,
Big and small,
That may come your way
And take as many as you can
Try new things
New foods, new activities,
Go places you’ve never seen;
Different countries and cities
And for once, just look…
Each day,
We go about our lives,
Existing, but not living…
For once, try living.


In all seriousness though, I do apologise for not making good on my word sooner… I was expecting a fairly quiet six or so weeks but I ended up with quite a lot on. Of course, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing, just that the process has been a lot slower than I anticipated.  :/

A couple of questions for the comments section – I’m not sure about the title of this poem… Do you think it fits? If not, do you have any suggestions for what I should change it to?

Until next time,

– Rose  ❤

The Mystery Blogger Award – Nomination


, , , , , , ,

A huge thank you to inamessyworld for nominating me for this award! You can check out her blog here.

6. You have to nominate 10 – 20 people.

7. Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.

8. Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify).

9. Share a link to your best post(s).


About the Award

I think inamessyworld did a great job of explaining this, so I’m going to quote her post:

‘It’s an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.
It appears to have been started by Okoto Enigma.’


Questions I Was Asked:

1. What made you start a blog and when?

Well, obviously Pixie Hollow closing was what originally started me blogging. I saw other players who’d had blogs for years, some of which were still posting, even after Closure, such as Marigold Sunjewel’s Marigold’s Musings and Crystal Airshine’s Pixie Hollow’s Little Secrets. So, in January 2014, I decided to start a blog of my own. Since then, blogging has helped me improve my writing skills and meet tons of other bloggers from across the world, so I’m quite glad I decided to do it.

2. Would you rather have a moustache for the rest of your life
or have a beard for the rest of your life?

The first word that comes to my mind when I think of moustaches is stylish, whereas when I think of beards, I think of the word scruffy, so I would totally rock a moustache.  😛

3. Your favourite fast food restaurant?

KFC – it’s so bad for you, but it tastes so good… Or Oportos, which is basically KFC, but slightly healtier.

4. Flats or boots?

Boots, all the way! I find flats uncomfortable and hard to walk in.

5. What are your embarrassing moments?

By the Second Star, if I listed every embarrasing moment in my life, we’d be here all day! Let’s go with this one: During class one day, I’d gone to the toilet and had returned to the classroom to find the door was locked. I knocked, but no one opened the door. When a fellow student finally got up and unlocked the door for me, they said something along the lines of ‘next time, try knocking instead of just standing there like a creep.’ I guess I had knocked too softly, but I felt too awkward to say anything, so I just mumbled my thanks and went back to my seat. Greeeeaaaat.  😛

6. What’s your long-term goal, if any?

I have two long-term goals – the first is to travel and see as much of the world as I can, and the second is to hopefully one day become an author, or at least publish a book.


Three Facts About Me

1. I’m an introvert

No surprises here! Despite what some people may believe, I actually enjoy being alone with my thoughts, although I don’t mind company from time to time.  🙂

2. I’ve eaten some… Interesting things

This trying includes emu, kangeroo and crocodile meat in Cairns at a cultural centre, and octopus at a Japanese festival, and surprisingly, they all tasted pretty good.

3. Becoming an author was an ambition I had, even when I was little

I know I’ve said that due to Closure, I found a love for writing which has ultimately given me the goal of becoming an author when I’m older, but I’d actually thought about the idea prior to that. Back in my first few years of playing Pixie Hollow, I began to write and plan stories about Rose and an a organisation she ran called the ‘Rescue Faries’, who saved the Hollow from the evil Jack Frost with her friends. Of course, I ended up scraping those stories a year later as I realised how bad I was at writing, but some of the ideas must have stuck because the PEF role playing happened, which eventually lead to the Forgotten Tales. I’d like to write a post explaining the full story of how I came to write the Forgotten Tales, but that’s for another time.  😉

Update + Reflection on our PBC

Faith wrote a reflection on the PBC’s state of late. I think she had some great points, so I thought I’d share. 🙂

Secrets of a Garden Pixie

Good evening pixies,

I’m writing just to let you know that I am on vacation, enjoying spending time with family. As a result I have been away from my blog for awhile, and I will likely be away for a bit longer as well. 

I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year! I pray that this year brings you each an abundance of peace, joy, and creativity. 

I do have a small reflection I’d like to share…


I’m sure you all have felt it, too, how there is not as much activity going on in our Pixie Blogging Community as in previous years. It’s heartbreaking to watch one pixie after another simply fly away, for good. However, I want to stay positive, and say THANK YOU!! to all of you who do continue blogging, and who put so much hardwork and love into your posts. You…

… As Another Begins

Hi everyone,


(And of course, Happy New Year’s Eve for those a day behind)  😛

It’s usually around this time that everyone starts making resolutions… Usually, I don’t do New Years resolutions because I know I probably won’t complete them… I’d rather set smaller goals on a day-to-day basis, and achieve things one step at a time.  🙂

Something I’ve done around this time the past couple of years on this blog is share some statistics with you guys from the previous year, and I’d like to continue that tradition, so, without further ado, I give you the 2017 statistics of Pixie Hollow – Our Biggest Secret.
