the whole story about The Scarecrow
almost from the beginning...
(Actually the real
beginning is below...)
once had a new student in our Academy of Arts...
She looked so bad, she got dressed so badly and she even
behaved so badly...that we all called her simply
But once... It was just when daylight was gone, in just
beginning of the night...
Nice, a bit misty one, quiet, with something magic
feeling coming from inside... or from aroma of the
flowers wafting from the gardens around homes,... or
maybe from the moonlight... And on the street you met
that one, this ugly girl - "The Scarecrow".
What happened then? ... only you know!... Smile!
You had a friend... a little green, devil-like creature,
that always popped up, even when you didn't call him and
well, was always trying to help, whether you
wanted him to, or not...
Who was now that one!?!
Hehehe... maybe he is the one, who is always sitting in
your mind, sometimes making you happy about nothing and
sometimes getting you into trouble. Didn't you know
Well, maybe nothing extraordinary was happened...
But maybe because of that magic night, or of what your
little friend had done... there came Love... The most
powerful magic in that world! And that ugly girl just
bloomed, because of you, and transformed into the most
beautiful creature you have ever met!...
(At least I thought so...)
That nice white magic made you be a wizard and made a
fairy from her... Your kisses made miracles... her tender
hands transformed common things into magic ones, and
probably if all the magic items were used, as they would
have to be... she took you into the Magic Garden,
faraway, somewhere in Dream Land. And there she would be
yours and you would.... Hey! Were you really there???...
OK... If so... then perhaps she invited you to her
birthday, to see her at her home and to celebrate
together... just you and she alone... Oh, and that green
one, boring creature! How to escape from him!
There was a cake and candles, as it is proper. She showed
you her designs and you tried to teach her to play
Did you ever know how to play guitar??? Never mind...
There everything is possible....
If you had played the right melody together... she would
probably ask you to stay for the night and the next
day... to keep on lessons, you know.
Eh...The magic never ends! A book became a magic box and
magic door... The globe was a teleport... And you had
Geeeeee... only infinite happiness? Ha! Is there
something like that in real life!?! No!
Evil saw you and her together and was jealous... Black
envy decided to destroy that nice magic... It took her
and transformed her into a real scarecrow, situated in a
corn field, property of the Three Nasty Gnomes...
If you are
a man, was your love for her, so strong, enough to save
If you are a woman, did you imagine, you were that
scarecrow girl waiting for her Brave Beloved Knight... He
will come for you, I promise... There are so much magic
in the internet... so strange... unbelievable miracles
Someday, maybe I'll write some of those Internet Legends
here for you...
have you already played "The Scarecrow" game?
So you know what's happened in the Gnomes corn field...:)
did you do then? Did you find her watch and put it on the
scarecrows wrist, her tender arm appeared and when a
green bird came to bring you something what will help to
break bad magic... Or you took off sack from scarecrow
and what did you find??? Did you discover again your
Love, or you met a person you
never knew? A heartless, cruel Devil Woman, born to make
Well, in every case three nasty gnomes would try to take
her from you and turn her back into a scarecrow...
You fought with them and even won, but every time they
came back again and again... I hope, you did your best...
and your love had such beautiful magic to remake even a
Devil Woman into a nice angelic creation... If she had a
heart, of course...:).
At last, did she come into your sweet dreams last night?
The magic is... if you have seen her in a dream, the
Dream may become the Truth... and you may meet that girl
in real life sometime... :)
many of you have asked me what's her name.... She has
pretended, her name was April... but her fairy name means
something like Rose's Pearl, or to be more exact,
"An Angel Tear Fallen On The Rose Bud Just Beginning
To Blossom..." Oh, well, I usually just called her
my friends, for you who are not lazy to read, here is
this story. :)
in Nowhere, at the time of No time, there lands The Dream
...and there lived an old mighty wizard, who had
a power to create almost everything, from almost
Some citizens of Dreamland were his friends, some were
not... He used to fly with dragons, and have long
philosophy discussions with the Sphinx. He was scaring
the gnomes and was driving the harpies away, but the
Fairy Queen, who rules there, always kept some distance
of him. Probably because she was afraid of him a bit, or
was jealous a bit, since he had a magic power, more
powerful, than she had... Who knows... There were some
rumors, the reason was in some more delicate matter, but
you can't believe much rumors, can you? :)
one of the fairies was his friend, and was always around
him. She was so nice, so kind, so funny and very very
curious, that always was making the wizard smiling. And
she had so beautiful name - 'An Angel Tear Fallen On The
Rose Bud Just Becoming To Blossom'. "Gee.."
you'll say, "How to call her with that so long
name?!?". Well, it isn't problem for the fairies,
because they do not talk. Yes! They just send images,
feelings, concepts directly from mind to mind. No words,
different languages, grammar rules etc. Any of human
languages seams to be very poor and primitive to express
the right impression of all what a fairy can say... And
what she say for time you blink with eyes, you'll talk
one hour about and around to explain... Actually, the
fairies can make some sounds as 'oh', 'ah', 'ih', etc.,
just to underline the expression, they send. They laugh
very sweet, and even they can cry...
Haven't you met some woman, who can only make such
not to forget... There were another creature, that was
always around that wizard. Greedy the imp. He was called
'Greedy', because he was always hungry and thirsty. The
wizard enjoyed to have such buddy, with good appetite on
his table, not to eat and drink alone. Greedy was very
glad, and in appreciation of this, he always brought some
magic items, imps had, or had stolen from someone... Also
he always... 'He'?... Hmmm... actually imps have no
gender. How they make their generation then? Easy. When
it's time and there is need for that, simply a new imp
jumps out from the mouth of his 'parent'. Believe me,
I've seen that so many times...
Well, since Greedy always behaved as a 'man', I always
thought about that imp, as 'He'. :)
day/night (I couldn't say exactly, because the light and
darkness in Dream Land do not depends of some 'Sun', but
of the mood of Dream Land inhabitants) the fairy asked
"You were so kind to show me so much of your magic,
and teach me so much of it. Oh, you can do everything!
You know everything! Can you tell me, please, which is
The Gre-e-e-e-e-atest Magic in the World???"
The wizard smiled deep in his white big beard, and reply:
"The Greatest Magic in all worlds is called Love,
but it belongs to human beings only. And to use it are
needed two persons, a man and a woman, to be as one
"Wonderful!!! You are a man, and I'm a woman! So we
"Ha-ha-ha... You are not a woman! You just look like
a woman, my fairy... The women have no your beautiful
wings, but they can give the wings to men who love
them... Even if they haven't your other po..."
"I'd like to give you all! My wings, and everything
you wish!", she interrupted him, "I can
transform myself!!! You've taught me, remember? Now
see...what about like this?"
"Oh no! Women are not so hairy! And why you make
that tail??? He-he... though a woman can make a man to go
after her, as he is her tail...indeed..."
"Not hairy?...but looking at you...well, then like
"My dear, 'not hairy' doesn't mean like a reptile or
like a fish!... And what these fangs are for? Well,
sometimes a woman can be more dangerous, than a snake is,
and even more venomous..."
"You'll like me more, if I was like this???..."
"As a pink devil? Ha-ha-ha-ha... Oh, you'll make me
die from laughing!...The women show their devil horns,
sometimes... Ha-ha-ha..., but they use to put horns on
men's heads mostly! Well, enough kidding each-other, my
friend. Stay quiet for a while, and let us see, if I can
make from you a real human being..."
the wizard said this, he raised his hands, his dark eyes
flashed, and everything around illuminated in the strange
magic light, just coming from everything's inside... The
fairy froze in the air...then under his tender touches
she began to change, till the wizard murmured to himself
under his moustaches:
"Hmmm... a bit more of this... and less of that...
and if I change colors a bit... and if I add... but not
And there was a young woman, standing in front of him.
Her long hair with color of old gold, covering her
only... Her eyes were like mountain lakes,
reflecting a clear summer sky at noon. Her skin was
as a pink pearl, you couldn't say, if it was like
transparent a bit, or it was shining with its own light.
Her lips were as two leaves of rose bud, semi-opened in
expectation of a tender kiss, a wish of something
unrealized yet, so anxious ...
She's standing there so beautiful, so full of life, so
ready just to fall in love... With you? With me? With
some other, more lucky guy??? Eh!... Well, you have
already seen that Pearl... :))))
why the wizard's face became so grim, as he was looking
at his last creating?... Why his eyes became so sad?...
With deep sigh, so full of suffering, he waved with his
hand and broke the magic. Poor fairy just fell unexpected
on the ground and said: "Ouch!!!"
"Sorry, my friend," he said "I have to do
something important, I didn't do for so long time.
Please, now leave me alone, would you?"
"Hey! Why!?! Did I?...Oh, well,... as you wish...
But you have to know, I've remembered your last
magi-i-i-c!!!... He-he-he..." and she flew away.
wizard sat behind his table, his hands covered his face,
his long white hair streamed down to his shoulders...
"I had to make this hard decision long time ago...,
not to forget, I'm just a human being. I should be back
in Human's world, where was my place, where was my home,
and where I really belong..."
He stood up and take in hands a strange thing, containing
spheres and spirals, looking like if it was made of green
glass. That object become to fill of light, and all
around fell in darkness... And there was a big portal.
Behind it, the Sun was shining in the smiling sky with
fluffy clouds over peaceful green land. Some forest near
here, some river serpent far behind it, and over there
some houses, and yes, some people were moving there
He stepped ahead..., and being deep in his blue thoughts,
he didn't notice the blue transparent trembling wings
flashing above his head, neither the green ball with a
thin tail creeping between his legs...
that was the way, Pearl (the girl, who was
pretending, her name was April), and Greedy appeared in
the Fairy Queen heard about this, she was mad. You'll
ask: "But why???". Eh, the queens has their
right, never to tell you, the reason why they are angry
or they are glad...
"Oh, wizard, you left us that way!", she cried,
" All right! Better you'd never be back again! I ban
you, wizard!!! My gates are closed now for you
"Your Majesty,"-said the imp, who has brought
her that news, "one of us is missing too... I
can understand about that fairy. She was beautiful and
had a good heart, but..."
"Shut up, you stupid imp! First, the fairies have NO
hearts! Beautiful?!? She?!? Ha-ha! She was beautiful
like... like... like the SCARECROW in the gnome's corn
field!!! Oh,... he could not prefer her... He just could
not!!!... Oh, no-o-o-o...", she covered her flashing
"Hmm...Hmm...Your Majesty, you needed me?...."
the darkness dimmed more dark around two eyes of
"The Shadow Demon! Yes! Yes-s-s-s!!! I have a job
already know the rest. :)

ask me, if that story will become a KiSS set... or if it
will be really the end of The Scarecrow story. Still
Pearl and Greedy are in our world, and you'll see Pearl's
next adventures soon, I hope..
Scarecrow" is a CKiSS, FKiSS 2.1 set. It took many
years of hard work and still takes much of my time. What
I have shown here is just a little part of what I already
have and what is on my mind about The Scarecrow. Any
support, sponsoring, or donation that will help me to
keep that work FREE in the net, will be very appreciated!
