Always together

Standard
Always together

They said, “I bet they’ll never make it.”
But just look at us holding on
We’re still together, still going strong
You’re still the one…

Where do you go after everything is lost? Death in the air, and a night that never ends. And yet, here we are, weapons in hand, nothing but our courage and our love against all chaos and despair. As long as we’re together, nothing can touch us. We survive. We return.

Together-1

You learn to enjoy the little pleasures, like an improvised meal on our new makeshift kitchen, created by The Roawenwood exclusively for the Remnant Dark Days event. The build and the textures are so realistic, I can almost smell the slightly charred sausages he’s cooking. You can find your own at the Remnant until December 10th.

I smile at him and wipe my greasy hands on the rough skirt of my Nocturnal Prodigy dress, designed by Silvan Moon for the current round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, this round with the best of cyber punk, space/futuristic, and post-apocalyptic. The fit is great, the rigging is superb as usual, and the wonderful textures remind me of wool and rough cotton, after weeks of dusty wind. You still have a couple of days to go get yours.

Together-2

Here we watch each others’ backs by the super cool Watchdog Watchtower, also by Roawenwood. The photo was actually taken at the stunning Roawenwood main store sim.

We’re brave, we’re young, and we’re beautiful, even with the dense, hostile air, and the dirt on our faces. Our beauty comes from 7 Deadly S{k}ins; my handsome Zero wears Judas in Caramel, and I wear Tyna in Coconut, which you can still find at The Chapter 4 until the end of November (hurry!).

Together-3

Ain’t nothing better
We beat the odds together
I’m glad we didn’t listen
Look at what we would be missing

Electric Barbarella

Standard
Electric Barbarella

The way you look
The way you move
The sounds you’re making
In Ultrachrome, latex, and steel

It could be a galaxy far, far away, it could be millennia away from today, in hectic worlds made of steel, chrome, and fantasy.

I fell through the rabbit hole and landed at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, which this round is presenting us with the best of cyber punk, space/futuristic, and post-apocalyptic themed creations in Second Life. My powerfully sensual warriors today are wearing some great loot that you can win at Stargazer gachas, all part of the Vega-6TC collection, all fitmesh for the Maitreya Lara body.

Cyber 1

One of the rare items you can win is this glorious skin, emulating the metallic surface of the outfit, with Omega appliers. I wear it in the image above with the Metropolis set. In the image below, I’m wearing the Nebula set, and for that deep purple tone I chose the Psira skin, which you can find as a gift at the current round of Genre.

Cyber 2

I plug you in
Dim the lights
Electric Barbarella
Your perfect skin
Plastic kiss
Electric Barbarella

Before the dawn

Standard
Before the dawn

Meet me after dark again and I’ll hold you
I am nothing more than to see you there
And maybe tonight we’ll fly so far away
We’ll be lost before the dawn

My inspiration today was the beautiful temple dancer Nikiya and the tragic story of her love with the warrior Solor, an old story from an older era. I see her waiting for his return from the latest battle, with eager heart and loving eyes, in a time before the sad machinations of jealousy and dark fate.

dream 3

She waits on the beautiful Sovereign Born Chaise Set, one of the wonderful creations by The Roawenwood. The textures are exquisite and it includes several single and couple animations, which you can also adjust to your size. This was an exclusive design for the Treasure Chest, but if you missed it back then, you can still purchase the March Chest at its full price.

dream 1

This lovely dancer is also wearing several items that I found at one of my favorite events, the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The sensual outfit is one of the rare items from Devious Minds, and the jewelled hair is one of the rares from Aisling.

dream 4

I added the Metal Vintage hand accessories from Yasum, also available at the FGC, and the sweet Aztec Dream nose piece by Zuri Jewelry, with gemchanging options.

But Nikiya won’t stay much longer. A tall, familiar figure appeared from the other side of the glass, smiling at her…

Where the heart used to be

Standard
Where the heart used to be

Lo! Death has reared himself a throne
In a strange city lying alone
Far down within the dim West,
Where the good and the bad and the worst and the best
Have gone to their eternal rest.

This is the place, I’m sure of it. This is the same beach where the remains of my life washed ashore in a time before time, when my hair was golden as the sun and my eyes full of hope. I take off my boots, and my toes sink in the sand as they did so long ago. The memories sting my eyes and I think I still see him… the hunter… what was his name?

The rune on my neck seems to glow in the morning sun. Beorc, the birch. I can almost hear it whispering about rebirth, a new beginning. It certainly was…

runes-2

These are the new Rune Necklaces by Anachron, which you can find in the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The commons come in three different variations, and when you click on them, they whisper the meaning of the rune to you. You have until June 7th to collect them all.

I follow the abandoned paths alone with the echo of my steps. Nature screams of spring and rebirth, but the place I once called home is only ruins. Why can’t I remember his name? I can still see his intense brown eyes when I close mine, I could swear I hear his roaring laughter… but it’s only the birds among the trees. I clutch my rune, Ansuz… I mutter a prayer for wisdom, inspiration, a message…

runes-1

The night falls, and I find myself alone with my melancholy and my fading memories. Oh yes… I remembered your name, my strong hunter… and I found you at last.

runes-3

My rune whispers Isa…

Goddess before me

Goddess before me

Skimming down the paths of the sky’s bright ether
On they brought you over the earth’s black bosom,
Swiftly–then you stood with a sudden brilliance,
Goddess, before me;

Sappho’s Hymn to Aphrodite

This hymn of a desperate lover inspired me for this post.  In Sappho’s fantasy, Aphrodite comes to her call, to ease her pain, promising to grant her the passion of the one her heart desired.

Fantasy-2

And what better for such inspiration, than walking through some of the best fantasy events in Second life? I found this beautiful Marcia outfit, by Les Encantades, at the Jackpot Gacha. I was lucky enough to get the ultrarare, which includes a multicolor HUD for the top, skirt, and headdress. It certainly looks divine combined with my Auriel Wings -Bronze by Axix, a rare (yay!) from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

The perfect complement came also from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival: my Guardian of the Stars Gold Boots -for Maitreya Lara- and that regal matching Ward -another rare!- by Zenith.
