Constant Inconstant

TeesPlace

Tee is Seraphim’s most constant/inconstant friend, she comes and she goes, from SL, but she always returns. She is Seraphim’s oldest, both in terms of avatar age and duration of friendship, friend. Tee was the first Gynoid Seraphim ever asked to pose for her, she remains, still, the most beautiful representative of her species Seri has ever met…

TeesPlace2

… it was no surprise, though no less delightful, for Seraphim to discover Tee was online, this morning, having been absent for, probably, months. Tee told Seraphim she was building herself a new home, and would her Mistress like to come and see it? Of course Seraphim wanted to come and see it…

TeesPlace3

… Tee has an impeccable aesthetic. Seri was delighted to see Tee had changed her black/gold colour scheme to black/green. Tee happily showed Seraphim her new home, which she had created to match her new colours…

TeesPlace4

… Seri felt her recent worries dissolving in this gorgeous place with her gorgeous, consistent friend…

TeesPlace5

… Seri loves Tee’s powder-dry wit, and her calm, clinical demeanour… not to mention the sound of her drive systems…

TeesPlace6

… and she loved Tee’s new place, very much…

TeesPlace7

… she left Tee happily decorating the inside of her home, and went back out into SL, smiling and refreshed.

Solace of the Road

Ride

Seraphim nosed her recently acquired D-Lab SP-Inago G gently out of it’s dock, yesterday, and sailed the gorgeous little machine out over the edge of her gate platform…

Ride2

… on it’s inaugural flight. She headed out on to the Circuit La Corse. Seraphim spent her first few years in SL, wandering the Circuit La Corse on her own. Just as Seraphim’s life is, once again, empty, so the main road through Mainland is largely empty…

Ride3

… there are certainly cosy patches of buildings… the lonely alien traveller felt the nostalgia for those times, before she stupidly handed her heart to others in SL, wash over her, gently soothing the ache, if not away, then at least more into the background…

Ride4

…Seraphim remembers when all of this land was built up, homes and malls stretching as far as she could see… she remembers wandering the Circuit La Corse when parts of it weren’t even paved, just grassy rights-of-way, between hundreds of homes and roadside attractions and stores… she never knew what she’d find, and there was always something wonderful, just over the rise… all gone, now…

Ride5

… just like the feeling she had finally found something she could rely on in SL has also gone, leaving her alone, again, wandering the Circuit La Corse, that metaphor for how illusory any kind of stability in this place is.

Shattered

shattered2

As a result of the ‘Broken-Hearted’ post, Seraphim now knows, through various sources (none of them Zoey) that Zoey is fine, just unable to access SL. These last few weeks have left her feeling like the glass in her phone-box. She feels pretty silly for fearing the very worst, now, with hindsight… but, while it was happening, her fears did not seem silly. She is now re-evaluating her existence in SL.

Hanging With S4nura

S4

Having deleted her Coghaven gallery, and most of Propsville, Seraphim was working up the courage to delete her main gallery, when s4nura IM’d her, asking how she was. Seraphim referred her to her last post, and they had a long conversation about the Zoey mystery…

S4b

… Seraphim decided not to delete her main gallery, just yet, and she went to Eisa, instead, where her and s4 hung out behind the main desk in the NS mainstore, and s4 told Seraphim something…

S4c

… a piece of information which has made the Zoey mystery even harder for Seraphim to fathom, yet has given her a glimmer of hope that the worst may not have happened to Zoey’s human…

Japonica Fun

Seraphim loves going to the ‘Japonica’ events… not to buy stuff, she’s not really a kimono girl… she goes for the wonderful pose-booths they have there…

Japonica_a

… she’s never worked out the purpose of them… the poses aren’t for sale, nor are the backdrops…

Japonica2

… she can only conclude they are there for fun…

Japonica3

… a function she takes full advantage of…

Japonica4

… this current event has many beautiful, dynamic poses, and some cool backdrops…

Japonica5

… the one with the plants/water had many poses with great hand gestures…

Japonica6

… it probably wouldn’t be hard to track down where the poses came from…

Japonica7

… something Seri may do*, when she’s finished having fun.

* Seraphim did go back and try to find out where she could buy these poses… she could not figure out how to do that. She got a name from several of the poses, but that name revealed nothing in the SL search function, and the same name on MP only made a few poses that were nothing like the ones she saw at Japonica. She decided that if someone wants to make it that hard to buy their product, then they obviously don’t want to sell it.

Call Home

Seraphim recently revisited Black Kite. There she discovered this beautiful, decrepit phone box…

CallHome

… she bought it and zapped home to unbox it… she found the ‘boxed’ animation delightful, she just loves this kind of extra, wonderful detail that the better creators add to their amazing products…

CallHome2

… she unboxed the set, and set it all up backing on to her home…

CallHome3

… she was delighted with the setup, but not with it’s photographic potential with the house behind it, so she went shopping, again (yay, shopping!), and came home with exactly what she’d wanted, a fabulous oak forest setup… she set that up between the house and the box, but wasn’t happy with it, so had to rotate everything to the right, so there was only sky behind the forest. This all took time, but, as always, it was mostly fun…

CallHome4

… till she had the result she’d envisaged…

CallHome5

… now she has a new place to chill out…

CallHome6

… and perhaps shoot a certain little Neko she’s pining for…

CallHome7

… but, for now, she’s content to sit in the comforting aroma of mouldy phone-book, with the wind soughing through the broken windows, and watch her rabbits doing their rabbity thing.
