Dio’s 13th year in Second Life Feb 11th, 2021

Again another year has flown by way too quickly – today marks my 13th anniversary of joining Second Life. Looking back I’d say not much has changed during the last year. But if I think harder and read back in this blog, quite a lot has happened once again in this past year.

As always my review starts with our home and with the family. We still live on the same island with the same neighbors and we just made minor changes here and there. Just my art collection is growing, I call it my art park.
Our family however has changed. Besides Mistress Jenny, our niece Angelique and myself we had “officially” collared our Kitty and the slaves Flo, cecy, Christin, and Gwendi as of February 11th, 2020.

On November 24th, 2019 we got a message from slave Christin that she has some RL problems to care about and won’t be online for a while. It was the last time we heard from her. We released her on February 29th, 2020. Christin showed up again, yet has cut all contact with us – for what reason ever.
Sadly we also lost contact to our slave cecy (cecysumi). He RL and the non fitting timezones made it hard for her to stay in touch. After we didn’t hear from her for more than 3 months we released her on September 9th, 2020. She hasn’t shown up again so far. Nonetheless she will stay a sub friend and be always welcome, if she makes it back into Second Life.
And there’s slave Gwendi. Missing her since August 23rd, 2020, we shied back from releasing her officially and hoped and waited. Then all of a sudden, Gwendi showed up again a week ago, on February 2nd, 2021. She told us that she was seriously sick and hadn’t been in the mood for Second Life after her recovering. But while we can understand that, we can’t understand that she left not a single sign of life. We are happy that she’s alive, but being that unimportant to leave us without any information simply hurt us – it hurt us too much. I unlocked her collar, the day she returned. Good Luck, Gwendi.

In the first half of 2020 Ebony (Ebony Massey) got closer to us as our sub. She has a strong domme side though for others and has some obligations in her SL. On June 24th, Mistress Jenny and I decided to adopt our big black bytch as our step daughter instead of collaring her as our slave. This way she can continue her multiple obligations in SL, can even live out her domme side, and stay close with us at the same time. And step mums can be cruel …. and of course we will enforce our Cinderella to work for us (or punish her for motivation). Consequently Ebony will be called “Cinders” or “Maurer’s Cinders”.
slave Melissa came to us with the intention to stay a few days, maybe weeks and to escape then to tend to other adventures. She underestimated Mistress and my will and possessiveness and after some more weeks Melissa came to terms with her new situation and finally gave up any plans or thoughts of escape. The effect of the Stockholm syndrome kicked in and she submitted more and more from her own will. On September 9th, 2020 we collared Melissa (MelissaRLV). Melissa is from Italy, and hence we named her Maurer’s schiava (Italian for Maurer’s slave).
In January 2021 Ember (brie4675) approached us. She was seeking a life under control and strict restrictions preferably covered in latex. We had met her before in 2018 and 2019 and played with her for a bit but she retreated again as timezones didn’t seem to fit. Nowadays the fit is better for her, although she’s 5 to 6 hours behind us. Long story short I took control of her on January 3rd, 2021 and Ember became Maurer’s toy. slave toy was with us every day for almost 3 weeks and then left on January 20th.

As of today the our family consists of Mistress Jenny, our niece Angelique, our step-daughter Ebony, our housekeeper, head maid and head slave Flo, our Kitty, slave Melissa. Yet there are more subs and slaves around us, some might get closer and end in our collar, some stay just close sub friends, and others might vanish again like Ember (brie4675). Without any specific order I want to mention Faye (Boy Serenity), Irene (AdlerIrene) and Alessi20.
And I have to mention Ann (TransAnn) here, who became a closer friend of ours. She is a friend of Gwendi and our latex and gear expert.

Several times last year Mistress, Angelique and I had fun as two and as three Angelique’s. Angelique provided her shape and hair and we dressed almost or fully alike and went out. Being in her shoes felt strange but most of all we just enjoyed ourself and the comments we got – who could handle three Angelique’s?

Mistress Jenny and I had several adventures in the course of my last year. We had one longer ongoing roleplay with a domme. Unfortunately this roleplay ended without a proper end as the domme appeared less and less in Second Life. We haven’t seen her for the last 6 months. All of our other attempts to get a vacation or time-out together as subs failed but we won’t give up seeking *winks*. Every play adds to our experience.
I personally had several shorter plays as a sub with other dommes, always with Mistress Jenny’s explicit consent. Mostly she stayed in direct contact with these dommes. Mistress appreciates it as it fosters and strengthens my sub side and with it my submission to her. I don’t report of the joint and personal adventures in our blog, everyone needs at least a bit of confidentiality.

My submission to Mistress Jenny has grown during this last year. I don’t see that change any more. My growing submission and Mistress Jenny’s strengthening position became manifest in my slave collar. The times Mistress allows me to wear my sub collar or even the partnering collar have become short and rare. Mistress Jenny and I still enjoy our journey together and I desire her more than ever. We both enjoy also the green lights, that Mistress grants to me regularly. Having Mistress Jenny at my feet is a particular experience for me and her. I think it helps to keep our relation fresh and healthy. Thank you for owning me, Mistress Jenny, my love, my world.

July 7th and December 13th, 2020: Mistress Jenny and Diomita

 

What else? I kept this blog running another year, with one post every single day:
– one “Enjoying Bondage” picture every month (12 posts)
– one “Backflash”-entry, picking an old post to republish every month (12 posts)
– roughly 85 simploring entries
– roughly 85 Art in Second Life entries
– about 180 diary posts

All of my simploring tours were nice and added a lot to my SL. The last year was particular as I couldn’t travel in RL, so my travels in Second Life became even more valuable for me. Scrolling through the long list I want to mention Serene Footman’s Khodovarika in Summer, his Ubay Island and Kohlmannskuppe, Jade Koltai’s Hotel del Salto, Walsh County and Dya OHare’s sims Dya’s scent of the Caribbean – all places inspired by weired or unknown places in RL, places you’d normally never ever get to in the physcial life.
Then there were the sims that actually were inspired by well known cities and places, like Paris 1900, Midnight in Paris, BKLYN, New Brighton, Dagger Bay Autumn 2020 and Dya OHare’s Dya’s Southern Twilight.
The sims of Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni A Favela, A Thousand Windows and Summer in the City as well as The Apartments by Paradox Ivory were inspiring as they tried out new concepts of sim design, very well made.

I enjoyed lovely sims, places that were designed to create an environment to relax and chill out, little paradises. Representative for these sims I want to mention The Getaway – Nutmeg, Silent Melody, Carolina 2020, Dream Village, Boulder, Still Waters, Northern Shore – Skärgården in Summer 2020 and Ruegen.

I also visited adult places that are not only focused on sex but offer a nice environment in addition, more stylish places. Also just respresentativ I want to mention Opium Beach and music hall, Paracosm, Oblivion and Bellefleurs.

Last year I began to split my simploring series into “simploring” and “Art in Second Life”, although the boundaries between the two often overlap. Noir’wen City is such a place. It has adult aspects, it is a big city and it is a place for artists to exhibit. Just lately I visited the Art Galerie HaXue there.
I think I covered all joint exhibitions at La Maison d’Aneli last year. The last entry was bout the exhibtion of Jan/Feb 2021 (read here) The reports about these exhibtions are always quite some work as many artists participate and as I have to do some research to report about their work. But it is always also fun and it is exciting to see how Second Life and virtual art, that is only possible in such a digital environment, gain more and more attention.
I discovered the Hannington Art Foundation and reported about quite some exhibtions there, like Hexagonia by Amita Duranjaya, little boxes by Etamae or Elusive Reality by Gem Preiz.
I visited quite often the new DixMix Gallery which also has changing exhibitions of different artists. To name just a few I saw Silence by Theda Tammas, Geomorphism by Moki Yuitza, Barock by Caly Applewhyte and Charly Keeley-Keating’s Autumns Glow.

And of course I also visited some galleries owned and curated by the artists themselves like the SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre by Sophie de Saint Phalle (read here), Art Gallery Rill’Arts by Nils Urqhart (read here), the Fractal Insanity gallery by Milly Sharple (read here) or the VeGeTaL PLaNeT Gallery by Vroum Short (read here).
Last but not least I think I covered all of Cica Ghost’s lovely art installations, that always conjured a smile in my face, even when thinking back to Monsters, Elephants, Summertime or Another Fairy Tale.

My simploring tours and art in Second Life are a nice and important counterbalance to my kinky second life within my family and friends.
What is missing in this review of the last year? Yes a picture of myself to document the change of my avatar. I grew a bit older and I played a little bit with my hairstyle. The right picture shows my “Corona”-style, less volume, easier to cut.

What a year again! I’m still happy and I enjoy the journey at the side of my beloved partner and Mistress Jenny. We both as well as the core members of our little family are embedded in a great community of friends, we know some of them way over a decade now, some for several years and some are new friends of ours. Even if not mentioned by name in this anniversary blog post, these friends do mean a lot to me and to us. SL is first of all about people and it’s you all who keep my and our SL enjoyable and exciting! It was a great 13th year in Second Life and I look forward to the 14th!
Love from Diomita

    Congratulations on entering your 14th year in SL.
    Thank you for another comprehensive post. 2020 was a difficult year for most, for us the extra time at home meant we had more time to spend together. Even after 12 years having more time was a good thing and by keeping things fresh and different we have continued to have many great times together. Sl and Rl have their ups and downs and having the support of those around us makes the downs much easier to deal with. May we both have many more.
    lots of love
    Jenny xxx
