Queen of Serpents

Presently, he was aroused by a great snorting and hissing and rustling, and opening his eyes, saw seated on each stool a great serpent, a hundred cubits in length, with eyes that blazed like live coals. At this sight, great fear got hold on him; his spittle dried up, for the excess of his affright, and he despaired of life. Then he turned towards the pond and saw [that what he had taken for water was none other than a multitude of] small serpents, none knoweth their number save God the Most High. After awhile, there came a serpent as big as a mule, bearing on its back a charger of gold, wherein lay another serpent, that shone like crystal and whose face was as that of a woman. Thereupon, one of the serpents seated there came up and lifting her off the dish, set her on one of the stools. Then she cried out to the other serpents in their language, whereupon they all fell down from their stools and did her homage. But she signed to them to sit, and they did so.

Then she saluted Hasib in human speech and he returned her salutation; and she said to him with fluent speech, ‘Have no fear of us, O youth.

So I am a little worn out on blogging this week and I decided to take it a little slow and just mash some items together and it came out as a cute little outfit. I used a skirt out first, but I didn’t like how the pose made the skirt look so I took it off and replaced it with some pants. Sometimes ya gotta do what you gotta do.  Also, I am so in love with this hand from Katat0ink. I swear one of these days if she opens up her blogger list I am gonna have a heart attack because that is like my dream.  Katat0ink if you’re reading this! listen to me!!! This hand is really nice for those that are into the Roleplay scene or just want to enhance their avatar in a different way. I am glad bento is coming out and creators and doing different things with their mesh it’s awesome. I can get Syn human how I see her. I just wish the furry world would catch up a wee bit :/ These days I feel more human than fur and I miss my fur even though I do love the bento ears from AII cause those my baby lol, but anyways today was a more chillax day so I’m sorry ‘sponsors’ that it’s a blah photo but come on, we ‘bloggers’ can do simple photos from time to time. Cut me some slack here!
