Sky-High Party   3 comments

As our shuttle approached the spacedock, Jem glanced to her right and said to me, “Why the devil did the traffic computer assign us to land up here?  It doesn’t look that busy to me; I only see that green shuttle down there, and there was almost nothing around the main station pad.”

I shrugged briefly, focused on feathering the thruster controls.  Takeoffs are nothing, Real Life or Second Life; it’s always the landings that kill you ….  “You take no chances in space. Traffic Control must have spotted something out there, so it shifted us to this dock.  Fear not, Jemmy; the ways of the traffic computer are simply mysterious, and beyond mortal ken.  Sometimes they’re beyond the ken of the traffic computer, too.”

Jem replies to my humor on the second page.

Notice: mature theme and photos, NSFW.

The woman nodded at the image in the holophone’s field and said, “Good evening, umasi; I am En’kele, the refloi being sent to you tonight by the hotel service. I should arrive at your apartment in perhaps 10 minutes.”

Usul Walks Amongst Us Again!   1 comment

Day 283 / 4751 C. E., Vidran, planet Videra —

A rather neat little café and wine bar had been constructed near Ariel Sherman’s home, and the golden cyborg tried to drop into the place at least once a month.  Normally, top-name entertainers tried to keep their private time to themselves.  Ariel Sherman, CRO, COV, and one of the best-known performing stars in the quadrant, almost always managed to pass her time quietly in this café, whether by herself, with members of her ‘borg family, or friends from town.  Partly, it was because this was Videra, and the laws of the pleasure planet that was Ariel’s home and place of work could be summed up in a sentence:  “Feel free to do whatever you want, so long as it does no harm to yourself or others.”  Native Viderans were apparently taught this in the womb; they were always exquisitely polite, there when you needed help, and otherwise let you live your life in peace and quiet — not antisocial, just understanding that you wanted to pursue your pleasure and had the right to do so without interference.

Which was what Ariel was doing now, sitting in the café alongside Dara Furtano-Fa, her close friend and fellow ‘borg.  The pair were hanging out beside the coffee bar, with frothy drinks in hand or beside them.  Between bouts of conversation, whenever someone passed by carrying a similar beverage, Ariel would smile and exchange a few words of greeting that were distinctly ritualistic in form.  Dara had learned the words instantly, of course, from listening to Ariel and the others, but they meant little to her.  After another lifeform, this one a Zovitchian with lemon-yellow skin and a nearly flat nose in its elongated head, had bowed to them both and clinked his cup against theirs, Dara turned to her mentor and friend and murmured, “And you really don’t know that much about what this is all about?”

Sugar Pop!   Leave a comment

I discovered this exhibition at LEA9 while searching for a place to pose.  This area, put together by Suzen JeweL, shows ideas from her creativity, including song lines engraved into the ground at several spots.  It’s colorful, and surreal enough to fit the costume I’m modeling.

I don’t know what this says about me, but I love a lot of the vinyl goodies from r2, which I usually pick up at Collabor88.  Harper and I chose r2 when we started putting together the look for Caja, one of her story characters.  I gotta say I’ve fallen in love with Caja’s half-alien, half-elegant, half-demonic style.  (Wait, that’s 150%, isn’t it?  LOL)

This outfit comes from the current Collabor88.  I left off the boots that come with it, though, because Caja likes ultra-platform heels, and the boots made for the suit (separate purchase) weren’t tall enough.  Lucky for me, there’s other shoe stores who’ve got sole, and these boots from Moda were in my Inventory.

I’d also like to find more places — any places, really — who are making new “extreme” hair.  Fortunately, Griddie’s hair from several years ago is still on the Marketplace, and this Lily hairstyle from my first time in front of the camera had a platinum shade.
