Ending Isle | Apocalypse Tourism

Snapshot_008

Some places are lost to time. On purpose, by magic happenstance. Kairos is an island missing out of time, lost in the waters and in itself. I visited some time ago to poke around, to tiptoe up old metal staircases and to pry open old factory doors. Nothing had changed here for ages, but even a place stuck in the 30’s and 40’s is interesting enough to catch a God’s eye.

Honestly there’s just something about this aesthetic that pleases me. It’s still a bit proper, with these nice fences and harbor buildings with an air of purpose. It’s grease and grit with a bit of leather. Of course none of this grease is getting on me without my wanting it, but it’s still pretty to look at, and even better to be seen in.

I was recently talking with my wife about what constitutes an apocalypse. Any drastic change could be enough to reclassify that world and how it works. WWI could be considered an apocalypse, for the genocides at the time and the dividing of the world into alliances. Same for WWII, dividing the world again and bringing human atrocities into horrible focus for Europeans at home. Even Kairos losing its connection to the outside world, becoming insular and lost in time, could be just enough change to be considered an apocalypse of their old world and the birth of their new one.

I guess using that definition makes it a bit less bleak. Even Ragnarok is supposed to take 40 years, if I remember correctly. All sorts of people could survive and manage in that time. After all, all these people are still here. People still exist post-apocalypse in all sorts of media. Maybe it just looks different, works different. Like cult ladies working at the factory by day and in nice redlight houses by night, or an island torn out of its world and mixed in with another.

How many great changes have you had in your life? Any that you considered at the time to be a personal apocalypse? Are you a different person than you were before?

Please excuse the break from standard procedure. Yet again, the Goddess of Whim (me!) has impulsively done whatever the hell he wants, and it turned out pretty great!

That’s what this picset is done with. There’s a billion buttons and I want to play with them ALL! And I will. Ohoho, I will.

  • Bought a two year dealie with Lumosity!

Seriously if you like fun games that help improve general mental function, this is a necessity. I dropped like seventy bucks on it and I think that’s totally worth two years of unlimited access to the games and their scorekeeping/diagnostic tools and guidance. Not to mention there’s mobile apps, so I don’t have to be at home to train my response times and focus.

  • Started renting a full homestead from Value Rentals!

This is a huge step up from my corner plot that I’d rented for some 300 ish days. It’s big, it has lots of prims, and it is allll mine. It’s really nice to be on ground level without having to rez neighbors, and it’s especially nice that it’s only 6779/week, as compared to some competitors. I’ve cultivated a lovely beach, as seen here.

Being all caught up in my own water and wind… I feel so full. I could end up anywhere. So why not a nice sunrise in a big dress? Like a REALLY big dress? At least in SL your clothes never get wet and you can’t drown.


What makes you feel most full and fulfilled? Is it a place, a person, something you do? Or are you still looking for something to fill your time and heart?

Golden Evening and a God Slightly Out Of Place (and enjoying it.)

So, trawling through the Second Life tag recently, I came across a location feature by Jeff Goodnight on Goodnight Photography. I’m always looking for pretty new places to stand around and look at strangers and their fun builds, so I was more than a little excited to read about Indie Heights.

My wife’s indie. ish. Sorta. We joke about her being a hipster, but she’s like, pre-hipster. Left of hipster, up the stairs, and on the balcony of the second floor. She likes the music and sometimes the clothes and we both sure as hell love the little niche coffee shops that serve awesome smoothies and banana chocolate chip muffins. But that’s for another day.

Anyway, the vint coffee shop is a post for another day, and not for an SL blog.

Instead, lets look at my awesome murky green windlight choices and great manicure. I haven’t posted where my nails come from before now, but I think I’m going to start doing that. Air out my collection of SLINK manicure huds. (I have a lot of them. Alaskametro is quickly becoming one of my most versatile favorites though.)

The First of Many Frolicks

This is the very first photoset I shot with my PAWS rat head. I mean, obviously, I took wip shots, but none of those are here or for consumption. This was also the first time I wore this particular dress by Junbug. And my first purchase of an uchiwa because I needed way more colors than just green. (That’s a joke, it was more like my first seven purchases of an uchiwa because I’m impulsive and I get what I want.)

Speaking of what I want, this is also the first head I’ve gotten my beautiful space eyes by Plastik to fit into. SPACE! In my EYES! Every other head I had wasn’t hollow on the inside because they were sculpties, but this pretty mesh head has plenty of room for galaxies. Just what I needed.

It had actually been a while since my last visit to Alirium. It looks almost exactly how I left it, just as mystical and inviting and secretive. There’s no lack of pretty flowers. That’s probably why I love Alirium so much. Their store is a garden for the heart.

I like to think staying in pretty places will keep me positive and optimistic.


What do you do, or where do you go, to keep yourself positive and optimistic? Do you have your own favorite places or ways of being?

Glory in a new realm.

Honestly that title could mean a lot of things.

Really, though. I look good, I have new stuff, I’m in a new place. Triple whammy. However, this new realm is specifically a new rp sim I’ve adopted as home since every other sim decided to close on the same weekend. *stares at the camera with a faintly furrowed brow.*

Not so Sea-faring.

God, but not goddess of the sea.

So I’m sure, by now, my readers are aware of my divine status. You’re gifted with this blog, isn’t that enough of an introduction?

But one thing has, and always will, elude me. The ocean. Great bodies of water. Water, alone, as an entity, an element, a portfolio. It is not mine. It belongs to other divinities.

However, a plaything and servant very close to me is a sea witch, a siren, a great beast that calls the ocean home and calls mortals into the waves.

Just built a princess room! Dom is on the invisible list and sits inside, and a sub willingly comes through the door to be locked in to pamper and worship for whatever amount of time is decided. Outfitted with a worship desk, wall rack, leash ring, and a little bit of extra pretty! Better yet, it has multi-prisoner/sub capability… so you really can use all of those at once! Pav over here is just a step or two from getting the door shut behind him. Continue reading
