Incredible but true: Today marks my 7th rezzing anniversary in Second Life. It has become a tradtion for me to write a longer blog post summarizing the last year. Again, at the first glance nothing has changed, we enjoy a rare stability within our Second Life and I am very thankful about it. But of course we had some changes and many events and joyful moments.
Our home might be one reason for the stability. It is my base, the base for our family and friends. And it’s the family and friends who make a home. Home in SL is where they are. We still have our homestead for more than 3 years now. Tyra (Tyra.Sciarri) and Virgo (Virgo.Babii) on one side and Sarah (Sarah.Fhang) on the other side are still our neighbours. Thank you! Our island didn’t undergo dramatic changes but we continued to develop it.
We buildt a new main house. It is larger and has a spacious main room, so it is better for when we stay inside to play or chat and we stay a bit more inside now. We also added a new waterfall – Angel Falls just close to the Shangri-La. And we made new pathways and stairs and did some minor changes here and there. No big changes, slight improvements. When I get online and see our island, I know its time to recover and relax and to enjoy my free time. I’m at home.
With regard to our family we had some changes:
We released Danii on May 24th 2014, as she got hooked to other activities (“real” games) and her visits got rare.
We collared rona, “Maurer’s Künsterlin”, on June 26th 2014. Again: Welcome to the family, rona!
We sold our slave Dana on December 27th, 2014. Dana was our collared brat for more than 4 years. Her submission and dedication despite the timezone issue was and is amazing. We gave Dana into the hands of centi (centaur.mcGinnis) at least for now. Dana will stay close and will stay a family member – and we only sold her for her good (and we will buy her back if needed *winks*)
We released our niece Luna (Fae) on December 26th, 2014. Fae has and always had her own kinks and ways. Fae found a new passion being a fairy in Second Life. She shaped her avatar into a dwarf and has wings and she renamed herself into Luna Dewglitter. We’re happy for her. And whatever kink she’s exploring, Fae is welcomed at home and in our family. It just doesn’t need a collar as Fae gets close for some months and then vanishes again for some months.
We also sadly released Delilah, our concubine, on December 30th, 2014. Delilah had some problems in her RL. We hope that she overcame them. But she decided to stay off and she didn’t reappear for half a year, no sign of life, no email reply. Where ever you are, Delilah: Good luck to you! And feel free to say hello to us when you return online one day.
Our official family has shrunk a bit but the family and friends group is still growing.
Kitty (Santana.Thibedeau) was a pony for a very long time. On the occasion of her 6th collaring anniversary, we allowed her transformation back into her Kitty shape. We can tell that Kitty is very excited about the change and particularly that she can see her new skin and shape now. She looks like a real woman now, just her manners and behavior need some let’s say improvements. We look forward to Kitty’s ongoing adventures!
Maurer’s It (queen.takacs) is our strict restrained bondage victim for over 4 (!) years now. Recently we moved her to “The Keep” for some weeks, where she enjoyed her isolation and can fantasize about how to escape from us (what weill never happen *grins*). Now she’s back to her place at the decking and gets some eye candy at least every once in a while.
Angelique, our sweet niece, is also already close to 3 years with us. She is very special for her aunts. Always a brat, always different and always faithful. Thank you for being with us. You belong to us, Angelique.
Slave Flo (florence.riddler) was acquired more than 1 year ago. Slave Flo cares reliably about dusting and keeping our home clean. She pleases us with her devotion and with her blog entries (“News from Flo”-series) and gives us a lot in return for caring about her.
And rona, who is our youngest with regard of being collared, added a lot to my and our SL. It’s because of her that I discovered new ways of taking and processing pictures. And Jenny and I are really happy having her in our family. She added different kinks and preferences to our family. And this is what makes this family so particular for me – it’s variety. Rona had an exhibition of her art on our sim in fall 2014. It was exciting to set it up, to make the boards and ads and of course to see it. I hope that her exhibitions will become a regular event in the years ahead.
As for right now we’re missing rona for 2 months already. We hope that she’s doing well and wait for a sign of life. If you read this, drop us a line please, Rona. We do miss you!
What else has to be mentioned about my 7th year in SL?
We continued our “Enjoying bondage”-series on the blog. It has become a regular event to think about something different every month. And I truely enjoy it.
I improved my skills taking and processing pictures. And I uploaded some of my pictures to deviantArt (dA). I have fun doing that and it became sort of a 2nd diary just for the best pictures that I took on SL. And I learned some new tricks about taking pictures and how to make videos. It was fun to learn how to do it and the results are at least a nice memory.
Inspired by the Living in a modemworld blog of Inara Pey, I visited several sims. One fascination of SL for me is the creativity of people around the world. It is simply amazing what is created by others inworld. I visited “Umbral”, “The Bay”, “The Citadel”, “Dawn of Radiance”, “The Lefevre Mansion”, “Sanssouci”, “France Portnawak”, “Santorini”, “Angel Manor” and several galleries. We made the Halloween and the Christmas tour, both were real events and left fond memories. I enjoyed the colours of autum in several sims. Exploring and discovering what the human spirit can produce is for sure something that keeps me excited here.
We also tried new toys and gear and lately we used more often Katie Paine’s “Restraind Freedom” (RF) gear. Particularly the hood, the stealth gag and the mittens took our attention. Besides Marine Kelley’s Real Restraints (RR) those became our favourite toys and our subs mostly are equipped with them for our pleasure (and their pleasure too).
I also need to mention Virgo and our Friday night parties. The parties are a part of my everyday life and I look forward to every Friday not just because the weekend starts. We enjoy great music, we have fun with the themes and we find time to chat in public and in IM while we listen to the music. Thank you Virgo for playing the music for us. I really appreciate it a lot.
Still there’s a lot to explore in SL be it ourselfs and or fantasies and kinks or be it art or creatively build sims. We also like to play games like greedy or ludo and lately also cards against humanity. So at least for me Second Life hasn’t lost its facination and I enjoy the time that I can spend here online.
Jenny and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversay on October 24th, 2014. This is even in RL a long time of being together and we continue to enjoy our relation. And we continue to explore eachother and our kinks. We both developed in our relation and became collared to eachother years ago. But this last year, November 21st 2014, Jenny took even more control and she replaced my jewelery collar with a thick leather and steel collar signed “Owned domme” and I submitted. Thus she took away my status of being equal to her. She became Mistress Jenny for me.
The experience of being submitted to her as well as giving full control to her changed me and us. For my part it is that I truely submit to my wife like she did and does for close to 7 years now. I do fully accept being owned property. I enjoy her control and her guidance and I see her submission to me in a different way now.
On New Year’s day 2015 Mistress Jenny restored my status and granted that I wear my jewelery collar again. We started 2015 as a domme couple, fully equal and partnered in love. As we see fit and feel for it, we will give full control to the other. Thus we can recover strength and enjoy our both submissive side as well. Thank you, Jenny, my world!
Besides Jenny, the brats, our neighbours many others contribute to our SL and became close friends for us. Thank you all for making this world for me and for us. SL is first of all about people and it’s you all who make my and our SL what it is: Still enjoyable and exciting! It was a great 7th year in Second Life and I look forward to the 8th.
