Keys

When I opened my page at deviant Art Sunday morning I came across a picture of Chisato Watanabe who I watch on dA. It shows her surrounded by keys and is titeled “Arrival at Keys“. That really caught my attention and I commented: “I’ll have to visit this sim! I knew that all the keys I grabbed and lost must be somewhere – there!”. It didn’t take that long to find the place she visited in Second Life – Keys by Cica Ghost.

Cica Ghost is an artist from Serbia who’s in Second Life since 2010. She created a lot of sims and her art has it’s own handwriting. I visited several of her installations but searching this blog I found just one post about her work: Ruins.
Keys is a sim filled with pipes, grid flooring, screws, steel frames, containers, chains and …. keys! Upon your arrival you will notice the first huge key in the door behind which you enter the sim. I haven’t seen so many keys on one spot ever. They are everywhere and many of them are dangling on chains and seemingly build a curtain.

Take a closer look on the picture above. Some of the keys have letters, so they are marked, they belong to someone’s cuffs maybe … just as if here is the storage of all the keys I lost in my time in Second Life. The containers that are spread within the gigantic chaotic mess of pipes, platforms and frames are locked with the huge keys just like the door through which you enter the sim. Of course I entered not just one of the containers. Inside of every one is a giant lonely guy with a scary white face. Beside of him all containers are empty. Maybe it is the same person … or a family … who knows?

I searched for a description of Cica Ghost’s keys on the internet as the landmark description simply says “Twisted in a special way…” and found that there’s also a post on Inara Pey’s blog about Keys, that I simply missed – “Cica’s Keys in Second Life“. There you’ll find a more detailled interpretation about Keys and it’s meanings. But I guess everybody has an own interpretation or feeling. For me here are the keys that I lost and in the containers are the souls of the “poor” slaves and subs that I forgot. I am aware that this is a quite individual and opinionated interpretation *winks*.
Last but not least I also visited Cica’s store inworld. The landmark to it is at the landing point to Keys. Here you find some of the stuff Cica Ghost used in her artwork and I remembered that I saw some of it in Cica’s previous installations.

Dio’s 6th year in Second Life Feb 11th, 2014

Today I’ll turn 6 years old in Second Life. It has been a year of slow changes, no dramatic changes yet my Second Life developed.

What could I do in here?

What could I do in here?

Let’s begin with our home in SL. We still have our homestead, no movement this year and we like the stability and the base our home provides to us and the family and friends. Tyra (Tyra.Sciarri) and Virgo (Virgo.Babii) on one side and Sarah (Sarah.Fhang) on the other side are still our neighbours. It’s great to have them close.
Inspired by visits to other sims we remodelled our part of Mount Everest. We added grass, flowers, trees and some pathways. We created a new lounge with a pergola. “It” (Queen.Takacs) had some technical problems and her world became literally pink. It almost destroyed her fun coming to SL. She could solve the problem luckily after a while and we built a new pit close to the new lounge for her and locked her down there. Now she has a lot of time to recover from this hard time and maybe she catches a view on our feet sometimes. We built a new dungeon and tore down the Strict Ballet Acedemy, we removed the guest house and added some more cells to “The Keep”. Furtheron we changed the Beach Disco. The weekly Friday night parties are a fix part of our SL (as well as of our RL of course). We do have a great time there and Virgo provides great music for us and she adjusts the program according to the theme. We first thought we have to built and create it newly from the scratch but then we found a great ready built outdoor disco and modified it so that it fits to us.
Over all our island lost its desert character and became greener. It’s not the beautiful landscape that some have created in SL but it is ours and we did it at a resonable prim count. In addition Sarah did a remodelling of her island too. It has become a flowerful oasis and provides places just to sit down and enjoy the atmosphere. We use the patio behind her house facing the lake quite regularly for our bondage sessions.

We celebrated several anniversaries last year. Jenny and I had our 5th wedding anniversary, something really rare in SL and even for RL it is not a given. I really feel blessed. And also our brats and closer friends could celebrate anniversaries. Regarding our collared brats “It” , Delilah (Delilah.Ormidale), Danii (Danii. Szydlowska) and Angelique (Angelique.Teskat) nothing has changed but they all had celebrated another year wearing our collar. Thank you all for your devotion and dedication to us. There’s enough to read in this blog about them, no need to repeat it here.
Dana (Dana.Drezelan) had her 3rd collaring day on December 18th. Again she explored something new last year and became a cow at DZone. Another experience she made, she was milked all day and Kitty enjoyed getting her fresh coffee cream every day. Dana gave birth to a calf at DZone and then was released there. We sold Dana to Claven (Claven.Albatros) now just the day after her 3rd collaring anniversary as our island would be too small for a herd of stock.
Kitty (Santana.Thibedeau) was naughty watching ponies for a while last year. She freed Hu-mares at SnR (Stones and Rubber) just for fun and loitered around in the according sims like FFF (Frilly Filly Farm). And thus she made friends over there and got drawn into the scene more and more. And although Kitty fought the thought of becoming a pony in SL ever and insisted that she went there just to watch, the unexpected happened and she became a pony. She got the best gear available and two friends who train her – Betty (bettylatexlover.resident) and Merjeni (merjeni.resident). Good luck, pony Kitty, win many prizes for us!
We released subtittia (Mistress.Cuttita) who had not much time to spend on SL due to her RL and is now exploring on her own again where to turn her SL to, when she finds the time for SL. Tittia is still close and always welcome to us of course.
We collared Flo (florence.riddler) and Fae (Fae.Howlett) on November 29th, 2013.
Fae is my former subsister and now the 2nd niece who we adopted. She was our sub when she and I were both owned by Yasmin. She had longer phases of absence to SL and returned now. We provide her the stability of a family, the base from where she can start her journeys and of course we keep her in bondage and gagged every once in a while.
Flo, our little doctor slave was first our kidnapee but then we kept her and the Stockholm syndrome did the rest. We enslaved her. With such a large family it’s good to have a doctor close and for us alone.
Welcome to the family Flo and Fae.

For me family is not limited to our collared brats. The family is more. We have some very close friends that are also sort of family for us. Beside our neighbours Tyra, Virgo and Sarah I want to mention Argi (Argi.Boa) here. Argi has been with us all over my last year in SL, still uncollared but nonetheless part of us now. Arka (Arkahelle.Janus) spent a lot of her time with Danii making one of her wishes come true, and recently Nirvana (Nirvana.Elan) appears more and more and fits in well,  Thank you for being with us. And I want to mention Claven who is a friend of mine since my first days in SL. She’s an unfailing source of ideas, a good dominant adviser and just a wonderful friend. Thank you, Claven.

Over the last year I tried to keep our blog alive and I wrote a lot about the things we do. We started the “Enjoying Bondage” series with one picture per month. The series gives reason to at least one bondage night or one particular bondage or anything related to that once a month. For me the blog has become a memory book where I read myself sometimes and smile about myself or about the good time I had and have. I lost mostly all contact to the old crowd of Yasmin but the memories are kept alive and every once in a while I stumble over things that remind me about this time of my SL or I meet someone (or a reborn avatar) of our old greater family. SL still keeps somethings to explore every day be it new people who I meet or be it new sims to discover.
I met Rona (ronapotter.resident) at “The Secret House”, a club we often stay just to chill a bit. Rona made some nice picture collages for us and she inspired me to create something myself. And I finally began to uplaod pictures to deviantArt.  So instead of the yearly portrait of myself to document how I changed my appearance in SL for this anniversary I made something different that not only shows how I look but also covers my relation to Jenny (laylady.lay).

As mentioned above we celebrated our 5th wedding day last year. We are collared to eachother and we switch back and forth. During the last year Jenny got more and more familiar in her role as my owner. And I can tell that she keeps me on my toes and she knows how to tease me. Nonetheless she still has her place at my feet too. We have a very rare D/s relation where we both can enjoy both sides of the leash. I personally think that we keep up the desire for eachother also by trying to develop something new for eachother with every session we have. We also developed rituals that are now part of my everyday life. We’re connected in many ways. Thank you Jenny, my world, slave, wife and owner for everything you do for me and for the family!

Dear family, dear friends, let me heartfully thank you all for your love and support. I wouldn’t be here without you. I wouldn’t be “Dio” without you. I couldn’t relax and enjoy SL without you. Thank you all for a great 6th year in Second Life. Many thanks!

Exploring & Dio goes deviant

Lately I began to explore at bit again. Motivated by the recently mentioned blog “Living in a Modemworld” I visited eye candy sims. I first was in Annwn Willows, a water-based region. I got some new impressions while discovering. And I made some athmospheric pictures like the one below.

This morning I visited RiTai Dreamland  – a sim between arts and beachlife. It was a very relaxed visit and i tried flying microlight. What a way to spend a Sunday morning 🙂

And then I went ski jumping in Chamonix City. In Chamonix there’ll be the first ever Second Life Winter Games in March 2014. I could enjoy exercising alone. Again a different fun and apart from my “normal” Second Life.

The ski jumping is a lot more difficult than I thought and I crashed a lot. Fortunately you don’t hurt yourself in Second Life. I jumped at least 20 times and had just 3 or 4 valid jumps. Finally my best jump was at least not that bad and just 10 points below the scores I could read on the board. But there’s time left until the Games will start.

Last but not least after years browsing deviantart I decided finally to get deviant myself. I’m hooked to photography for years already. From now on I intend to publish some of my favourite bondage and erotic pictures as well as some other art pictures which express myself on deviantart. I’m open for comments and remarks. Here it is: Dio’s deviant Art (link added under Other links).
