the realm of alys


What is the Realm of Alys? This is my personal web-home. Originally 'shineycats', I wanted to rename it to something that captured the conglomeration that this site will (hopefully) turn out to be. So...this is my realm! The residents are faeries, myths, demons, and tiny woodland babies. From spooky forests to tranquil gardens, there's certain to be cute, weird, gothic etc. things — and also probably some chaos. Enjoy the stay!

Who is Alys? Alys (ALICE) is me; aka Alysson. Or Syla. I'm the webmistress of this site cat face I am a 21 year old Appalachian girl living with the aftermath and disabilities of a terminal sarcoma diagnosis.... More importantly though, I am an artist, animal lover, collector, reader, dreamer, appreciator of cute things, heathen, crafter, lover of learning and a wannabe pixie.

NOTE:This site was designed in 1536px Firefox, and therefore best viewed on desktop for the ~full experience~ jazzy cat. Though I am working on making my site responsive and accessible, some things might not be perfect. I'm a coding newb & easily distracted! Feel free to email me at if you had any issues panda on laptop
