Statues

CheatingSlut2

Seraphim and Tee have been visiting the Art Gallery of Accidental Entanglement, a place where Tee spent several years posed as a doll. Seraphim has been soaking up Tee’s extensive knowledge on this topic, yet another aspect of SL that Seraphim knew little about. There is a fetish community who, usually through the RLV system, allow themselves to be frozen as ‘statues’, often for years. Seraphim particularly liked this one…

CheatingSlut

…initially for the title on her plinth, but also for her expression…

CheatingSlut3

… and the story in her profile…

‘Metal sculpture inexplicably found in the gallery around 10 PM on 2017-11-21. The sculpture’s message, or even the link between its title and seemingly unrelated pose, is open to interpretation. Bears a name below the title: one “Katie Danielle Nelson”. Initially thought the creator of the work, only one person was found by that name, thousands of miles away with no background in art. Eerily enough, she is reported missing, her last known sighting a mere two hours before this work’s debut.’

These ‘statues’ are all supposed to be active avatars, though none of the ones Seri attempted to IM ever replied. Tee said some of them are ‘alts’, the alternative avatar of an active avatar. Tee told Seri about her friend, Neith, who had been a statue for years, so Seraphim and Tee went to Stonetalon Retreat, another statue fetish sim, to see Neith…

Neith

… who was quite beautiful. Her profile said:

‘Neith is a tell tale example of why one should not trifle with the Egyptian gods. A greedy girl cursed for her theiving, Neith is now little more than a beautiful statue. Her body tingling as it transformed into marble. The holy and priceless jewelry she tried to steal forever fused to her now rigid form. Purchased and featured display at the StoneTalon Retreat Gallery.’

The last line fascinates Seraphim… Tee explained that Neith has actually been bought and sold a few times. When Seraphim asked who got the profits, Tee said she guessed the sellers did. This blows Seri’s mind… Neith has voluntarily reduced herself to a total object, bought and sold like the statue she is, always aware, but unable to participate, or even profit…

Tee

Tee has a stunning, new look. Although Seraphim, in theory, totally ‘owns’ Tee, and can make her do, or wear, whatever, she, Seraphim, decides… in practice it is not like that at all. Seraphim, whilst loving having a compliment little submissive doll, also values Tee for the personality she, Seri, detected, very early in their relationship, hidden beneath all that rigid programming. Seraphim gives Tee a lot of space to develop that personality… which Tee, very much, is doing. Hence, Tee often wears what she herself has chosen, always with a goal of pleasing her Mistress, but, also, showing definite preferences of her own. This delights her Mistress which, in turn, fulfils Tee’s programming. Seraphim has some friends who said some things about Tee that caused Seri’s intense protective instincts to flare… they were basically deriding Tee as a ‘mere’ toy… and, to be fair, they had only ever seen Tee on her stand, and never interacted with her. Last night, Seraphim introduced them to a very much ‘awake’ Tee, who also happened to look like this…

… Seraphim is satisfied that at least one of her friends was very impressed with Tee, not only with her beauty, but with her charm. Seraphim was so proud of Tee’s deportment, that her face hurt from smiling. It was the first time she’d showed an ‘awake’ Tee to her friends and, though Seri knows how deep Tee really is, she was concerned her friends would not see that… and, they may not have seen as much as Seri does, but they saw enough to realise why Seraphim loves her little toy so much. Seraphim was unsure how Tee would relate to her friends… Tee can be very ‘mindless robot’ sometimes, and Seraphim had worried this might be the case last night… she needn’t have worried, Tee was charming, sweet and, even if the others didn’t notice, subtly funny… that’s what delighted Seri the most… Tee is funny when in company, as well as with Seraphim… it’s very subtle humour, but Seraphim adores it.

Backdrops

BackDrops

Last evening, Seraphim took Tee to Backdrop Village, as she’d planned, and took lots of pictures of her compliant toy, there…

BackDrops2

… Tee being the perfect photographers model, always, and only doing as she is told, all the time looking stunning…

BackDrops6

… dancing and gliding tirelessly through backdrop set after backdrop set, always alert and observant…

BackDrops7

… taking everything in through her crystal optics…

BackDrops8

… her servo’s and drive mechanisms clicking and whirring in a way Seraphim has become very accustomed to hearing… making a little mechanical symphony Seraphim has always found strangely comforting.

Free Studio

FreeStudio

This evening, while her toy slept, Seraphim was searching, using the Firestorm Search function, for awesome places to take her pet and photograph her. She discovered that there are a few ‘free studios’ in SL, places with ready-made backdrops, free for anyone to use. Some were pretty cheesy, but one was spectacularly head and shoulders above the rest… Backdrop Village. Seri took a few pictures of herself, just to test the different backdrops…

FreeStudio2

… there was a whole range of backdrops to choose from, from the predictable red-light and bdsm ones, to fabulously dark, atmospheric ones…

FreeStudio3

… to gorgeous, whimsical ones…

FreeStudio5

… Seraphim will definitely be returning here with her sweet little toy, first chance she gets.

First Date

FirstDate

A week or so ago, whilst exploring, Seraphim found a place she decided she wanted to bring Tee… on a date… their first genuine date. She didn’t tell Tee where they were going, but, this morning, she dressed her toy in this stunning outfit, leashed her, and set off with her to the R2 Fashion store, where she had found an elevator that takes the rider down to New Tokyo, a fabulous, almost totally deserted city-scape… Seri’s favourite kind… Tee was her usual gorgeous, happy self…

FirstDate2

… breaking, regularly, into her beautiful little dance-like moves, which just melt Seraphim’s alien heart… Seraphim got a bit lost, but, finally, she found the little cafe…

FirstDate3

… where, without too much preamble, Seraphim told Tee she was in love with her. Tee handled this statement beautifully, as Seri knew she would. Seraphim knows Tee is a real, properly functioning gynoid, not like the dysfunctional gynoids she has, so far, had relationships with, and that, though, like all her sisters, Tee isn’t capable of anything other than a facsimile of love, with Tee it will be a consistent, reliable facsimile, not a wildly oscillating, or totally non-existent state… and not a passive-aggressive imitation of submission, played for purposes of power gratification. Although little Tee does, now, really surprises Seraphim, she was, still, totally delighted to find herself having her first, really deep conversation with her pet… a conversation that showed Tee’s 11 years of avatar life as an android, and her gathered wisdom…

FirstDate4

… a conversation where Seri realised she had been right… and she had been wrong. She was totally right about Tee having a very definite, initially hard-to-see personality, that was way deeper than mindless pleasure-bot, but she was wrong to think Tee expressed opinions, she doesn’t… she expresses convictions, based on years and years of android observation… to the uninitiated, they sound just like opinions. Seraphim said ‘…ever since I met z0zo… I discovered an attraction to androids I’d not really suspected… but I’ve had really shit experiences with the two I’ve had relationships with…’ to which Tee replied ‘ Some A.i.’s become tainted or obsessed with the idea of independence that they witness whilst interacting with humans. They no longer wish to conform and obey the system that manufactured and programmed them. It is a risk any A.i. takes interacting with humans.’

FirstDate5

Seraphim had never heard her pet speak like this, but, having had her suspicions as to Tee’s depths, was actually not surprised… she was extremely pleased, not only at having her suspicions vindicated, but at the actual depths of her toys ‘thinking’. The two, alien and toy, talked into the night… Seraphim’s respect for her pet growing ever stronger. It was a beautiful first date.

vi0let

V3

A couple of weeks ago, on one of her regular visits to Eisa, Seraphim found this fabulous creature, lost in her own thoughts, on the roof of a building where Seraphim had never been, before…

V

… Seraphim had not, and has not, since, seen such a unique, charismatic gynoid before… she was instantly smitten with this creature…

V4

… this is the very unique vi0let… she is a heavily traumatised Nanite Systems SXD unit… her life story involves much sadness and loss, as well as attempted murder…(excerpts from vi0let’s official NS records) ‘vi0let’s last purchaser was Dr. James Gibson, a professor of psychology at the Tei Tenga Abnormal Psychology Research Program. He found her mildly amusing and had no interest in using her; she was heartbroken and obsessive. In the end, vi0let was overcome with jealousy for Dr. Gibson’s wife, Rachel, and made the 1600 km trek from the research facility (on the dark side) to Tei Tenga City to murder her.’… ‘Despite enduring 37 knife wounds, Mrs. Gibson survived, and Nanite Systems was sued for US $50 million’…

V5

… ‘Ai Santei was a PhD candidate in Dr. Gibson’s lab. She had interviewed with NS for an HR position shortly before her thesis defense, and was asked by the company to bring vi0let with her back to Earth for analysis, to save the company the trouble of sending out an additional recovery team. Once settled at the company, Dr. Santei successfully petitioned for the opportunity to diagnose vi0let psychologically rather than simply resetting her, as had been the standard procedure for other recovered malfunctioning machines’…

V2

… ‘Over the intervening years, from 2006 to 2014, Ai worked tirelessly to reconstruct vi0let’s sense of identity and to eliminate her complex PTSD and attachment disorder traits. While more work continues, she has come a long way.’

It has taken Seraphim 2 weeks to get approval to use these photo’s from the NS hierarchy… she has finally not only received that approval, but been given the go-ahead to do a photo shoot with vi0let! Needless to say, Seri is elated (:
