THIS IS A DIGITAL PATTERN NOT A FINISHED BLACKWORK PIECE

Music is moonlight in the gloomy night of life.
-- Jean Paul

Hark, ye unsuspecting souls, as the shadows cast their wicked dance upon the Moonlit Market, where dreams, like thorns wrapped in gossamer, await you. Beware, for the wares of this bazaar are not for the feeble-hearted, and the cost of your desires may eclipse the very essence of your being.


The air, thick with the scent of otherworldly enchantments, resonates with the whispers of caution from those who have danced too close to the edge of their fantasies. “Greetings Mortals,” echoes the voice of a lone herald, a spectral figure emerging from the darkness. “Here you will find your dreams, available for a price. But heed this warning, for the price may be more treacherous than the shadows that cloak this twisted fairytale.”

The sellers, sly and cunning, beckon with grins that shimmer like moonlight on poisoned waters. Their currency, a nebulous concept at best, is not mere gold or silver but the fragments of what makes you... you. Beware, for what seems like a trinket in their eyes may be the anchor of your existence, and what appears trivial in the mortal realm could be the linchpin of your heart’s desires.

Caution, like an ethereal cloak, wraps around those who traverse the market’s twisted pathways. “Caution is advised,” warns the spectral herald, eyes gleaming with ancient knowledge. “Bargain with the sellers, but tread lightly, for the prices are in their local currencies, and those currencies are capricious as the wind that whispers secrets through the twisted branches of the enchanted forest.” These sellers of the uncanny are treacherous and may turn upon a whim, but their attentions can be bought with an acorn, or maybe a palace, or potentially just your name. Once a bargain is set in place it cannot simply be undone if you find the price too high.

As you step into the moonlit dance of the goblin market, remember these words: agree to nothing, promise no time, and do not, on a whim, bargain away the fragments of your soul, lest you find yourself ensnared in a tale darker than the deepest abyss. The Moonlit Market is a realm where the cost of dreams is etched in shadows and skin, and those who barter risk becoming but a haunting echo in the dark corridors of the fae’s malevolent carnival.
