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

Bring me her heart

Standard
Bring me her heart

Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn…

I was once the most beautiful, the fairest of them all. Every day that goes by, this wretched reflection of mine shows me a new line, a new spot, the youth fading away from my face, slowly but relentlessly. I observe them, I touch them, and I loathe them, my lonely mind also fading away in a fantasy of eternal youth, of some prodigious magic that could keep me forever young, forever beautiful.

Mirror Mirror 2

My tribute to aging Queen Grimhilde wears a beautiful creation from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, called North in the Snow tone. I added subtle wrinkles made by Izzie’s, and she’s still a ravishing woman. I will add the original vendor photo (without the wrinkles) with the credits at the bottom. My jewelry is one of the latest creations by Zuri Rayna, the Tear Drop collection, on sale for a few more days.

Take her far into the forest, to a secluded glade…
… and there, you will kill her.
But to make doubly sure you do not fail…
… bring back her heart.

Mirror Mirror 1

My desperate queen could only be wearing the exquisite Queen Grimhilde gown, by Silvan Moon Designs, which you can find exclusively at Enchantment (as you may have guessed, the theme this round is Snow White) until the end of the month. I chose to honor the classic Disney version of Grimhilde combining the purple dress with the black overskirt -Maitreya version.

All that was me is gone

Standard
All that was me is gone

Give me again all that was there,
Give me the sun that shone!
Give me the eyes, give me the soul,
Give me the lass that’s gone!

He calls me his queen, and his love, and he pretends not to hear me crying myself to sleep every night. My voice is raw from calling out my sweet mother’s name, then every god in Olympus, and any hero who could come to my rescue. My eyes are cloudy from the gloom and the permanent darkness of the underworld, this dreadful cage where I must now dwell.

Pers-2

My disheartened Persephone is wearing the beautiful “Spirit of Hope” gown, a lovely design by Silvan Moon, created exclusively for Gotham Island, a wonderful fundraiser event. The proceeds will be donated to the The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. You can find this and more until October 31st.

Persephone’s lovely face is the beautiful Lisa skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the current round of eBento. I chose the freckled version in this warm walnut tone. The jewelry set I wear is from the Sugar Drop collection, one of Zuri Jewelry’s latest creations, combined with an adorable Zahra floral crown, fit for the daughter of Demeter.

Pers-1

Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
Mountains of rain and sun,
All that was good, all that was fair,
All that was me is gone.

Searching for my sins

Standard

La tierra muerta, como un ojo ciego,
Seguirá andando siempre sin sosiego,
Pero en la sombra, a tientas, solitaria,
Sin un canto, ni un ¡ay!, ni una plegaria.

A dead world like a blinded eye,
Restless forever moves through the sky,
But fumbling in shadow and all alone
Not a song nor a cry nor a prayer intones.

Mary Tudor 2

I was born the Queen’s daughter, resented by my father for not being the prince an heir that he wished for. By his whims, I’ve suffered through downfalls and brief flashes of grace, I saw him drive my mother to wither and die alone, I saw others rise and tragically fall. Now I am the queen, and the most unhappy woman on this sterile Earth.

Today I drove my inspiration from one of the darkest moments in the life of Mary I of England, first daughter of the infamous Henry VIII. After a psychological pregnancy ended her hopes of having a child and heir of her own, her beloved husband left her with the excuse of fighting Spanish wars.

Mary Tudor 3

Here she cries to the god she’s always loved and defended, in an effort to understand what her sins are. She wears the majestic “The Queen’s Daughter” gown, created by Silvan Moon designs exclusively for the October round of We  RP. The head piece is included, and it’s available in different colors. It’s absolutely exquisite, wonderfully rigged, and ready for Maitreya, Slink, or standard SL bodies.

The gorgeous jewelry that my melancholy queen Mary wears is by Zuri Jewelry: one is a complete classic, the Czarina Jewels here in the Elite version (metal/gem/pearl changing menu), and a new release: the Filigree Ring. It’s not fitted or rigged, but it’s already located on the ring finger, for Bento hand users.

Mary Tudor 1

The head I’m wearing today is the new Kiana Bento head by Genesis Lab, a most generous and adorable group gift. I added some wrinkles (Omega appliers by Izzie’s), to better illustrate Queen Mary in the situation I was portraying, lonely, depressed and in pain, thinking that god was punishing her for tolerating “heretics” in her realm.

Sola, con sus criaturas preferidas
En el seno cansadas y dormidas.
(Madre que marcha aún con el veneno
de los hijos ya muertos en el seno.)

Alone, with the creatures it preferred,
In its breast worn out, sleep interred.
(A mother moving on with venom pressed
from her children, dead now, in her breast.)
