Dio’s 10th year in Second Life Feb 11th, 2018 – Part I

Incredible!
Today marks my 10th anniversary of joining Second Life.
It has become a tradition for me to write a longer blog post on the occasion of my rezzdays, to have a look back on the last year and to realize the changes in my Second Life as well as the things that didn’t change.
As this post became a little bit too long, I decided to split it into two parts. The part one will be about our home, the changes in the Family and my simploring tours. Enjoy!

Let’s start with our home. It hasn’t changed. This time I also can’t report about a major refurbisment. There have been only some minor changes, some more plants, some new furniture and toys. I personally am very happy with the layout as it is now, but there’s always room for improvements.

December 15th: Our winterly homesim “Mount Everest”

Since my 9th rezzday the family has only grown. None of our slaves and subs left. We still have slave Flo, slave slut cecy, slave Adarra and slavin C. Our sub Kitty Maurer is still owned by us and enjoying spreading mischief and causing trouble for herself and others. And Angelique Maurer, our niece, stayed close to us as well. She left Zoey and finds more and more her own way in Second Life but she feels being at home when she’s with us.

The Maurer’s: slave Adarra, slave puppy Christa, slave slut cecy, Diomita, slave kelly, Mistress Jenny, Angelique, slave Flo, slave Belly and Kitty (from left to right, picture is from January 1st, I added in slave Adarra, slave Bella and Kitty)

In October 2017, I met kelly (kellytrip) at Heavy Bondage Club. I knew her as Claven’s slave. Claven brought her sometimes to our Friday night parties as a kind of a decoration for her. Claven gave her to Mara (Maralyn Corleone) and Mara allowed kelly some freedom, like looking for trouble at Heavy Bondage Club. kelly found the trouble she was seeking for. What started with teasing developed to a longer roleplay. We had kelly and later also her former owner Mara as our victims at home. We shaved their heads bald, we (ab)used them and we threatened both. The roleplay ended when kelly offered to fully submit to us if we let Mara go. slave kelly, Maurer’s lil slave, had no traditional trial, she was simply enslaved and is our slave now.

In November 2017 Bella (BellaRose1998) came to us. She attended one of our Friday night parties from a quite secure distance. Bella didn’t dance but stood aside most of the time and she spent some time at the pit, where slave kelly was stored that night. She was picturing herself fully controlled, tied and locked and was not at all shying away even from isolation but had no experience. Bella stayed with us for several weeks, was treated like a slave and fitted in well. She’s patient and accepts her place. After a short traditional trial in the tube cell, we collared her as Maurer’s Rose in January 2018.
I explored and discovered a lot in Second Life during my 9th year. I admire the creativity of artists in this virtual world, I visited galleries like MetaLes ..O.. ArT Virtual Space, Blue Orange, SOOSH Art Gallery, Serena Imagine Arts Center, The Eye Art Gallery and La Maison d’Aneli. I saw several installations within the LEA programm like Another world, Surreal Chess Wonderland, 16 Fields and The Mind of The Machine. I came across the light shows of Mario2 Helstein and saw the Solstice Light Show. I discovered the fractals of Gem Preiz in his exhibitions No Frontiers and Chaos. I visited Enchanted art and Cerridwens Cauldron, I saw Moya …. and many many more.

I found many cosy and lovely sims where people buildt their own dreamworld, peaceful and picturesque. You don’t need many prims or a large place for it, Long Journey and Another Long Journey are examples for that. Most of these dreamworlds were homesteads: Maison de L’amitié, Amandia, Follow Your Bliss (II), Ash Falls, Tavana Island, Sunfall, Sol Existence, Binemust, Borneo Island, Aspen Fell Memories, Cherishville, Holiday Trace, somewhere ….. just to name a few. In these sims I spent relaxing hours and enjoyed the views and the peace.

Then there were the sims that have a real background, where a place in the physical world was build in Second Life. This way I got a picture, an idea of the real places and my visit gave reason to do a little bit of research. Khodovarikha (in the Barents Sea, Russia) was one of the most impressing places and I spent some time learning about this place in the real world. I didn’t read or hear about Marfa before seeing it in Second Life, now I know that this place in the middle of nowhere is quite known as a major center for Minimalist art. But there were more like West Of The Rain (inspired by The San Juan Islands in Washington State), Costa Blanco (a southern province of Sweden), A piece of Ireland (Blarney Castle in Ireland), ~Neive~ (Neive is located in the Province of Cuneo in the Italian region Piedmont) and New Greenland (inspired by Kangaamiut, Greenland).

I also discovered many places related to my kinky side, to BDSM. That’s another dream you can live in Second Life and I do. Some of these places were not new at all, but new for me or I just rediscovered them. I want to mention the Seaside Slave Storage, Angel of Pain’s BDSM Island (which I visit more often again), SJC Playground, Fortress Mortice, Chek Chau – Daisy’s playground, LICK and Crystal Bay, Elegant Femme Gallery and Maison Sybille, Sadiana, Headlights, Mirage and The Havens. But there’re many many more. Also these places are build with passion and love and they all offer a lot more than just bdsm.

Thank you all for building, for creating and for sharing your dreams with the rest of the community. And please apologize if I forgot to mention some of my tours, it were too many. I did really enjoy all of my simploring tours!

    10 years has flown by. It is as long a relationship as any other I have had in both worlds and certainly one of the most positive and supportive ones. We have both enjoyed out journey through SL side by side and have often said that together we are awesome. The sum of the two of us is much greater than the two halves.
    Thank you for everything we have shared and done together and I look forwards to many more years together.
