Backflash February 2021 – Dio’s 3rd year in Second Life Feb 11th 2011

In the “Backflash” series I select an old entry once a month and present it here. This way I force myself to browse in the archive and to fresh up a few of the many memories. For our readers the new series shall provide an insight into our Second Life without reading back the many posts and it might also give reason to browse through the archives.
For February 2021 it was quite obvious to select an anniversary blogpot. We travel 10 years back to 2011 and have a look at my Second Life at that time. And looking at the 2 pictures in the post – that was me??
It is always fun to read back and to remember, to realize the changes, and to smile!
Enjoy reading…


Dio’s 3rd year in Second Life Feb 11th 2011

My third year in Second Life ended today. Time to look back again and to have a look forward. The look back starts with reading the blog entry that I wrote one year ago. WOW. I can cut and paste some parts of that entry, particularly the sentences dealing with the base of my SL:

“- I am still owned by Goddess Yasmin Heartsdale
– I am still spoiled by the love and devotion of my partner and Ehesklavin Jenny
– I am still part of a lovely large family
– I am still running my own family branch
– I am still exploring SL and myself
– I am still happy to be here”

Usually when we think about a days’ events we come to the conclusion that we didn’t do what we intended to do and that nothing really happened. When we look back to a whole year we’re surprised to notice how much has changed or how much we achieved, discovered or expierenced. Same happens to me when I look back to my 3rd year in SL, the base is still the same but nonetheless a lot has happened and changed.

The family has changed. Goddess and Teyonas parted and Goddess partnered to my sister Valerie. My sisters Fae and Claire left the family and my beloved sister rabea is suffering of serious RL health problems and might not return.
Amanda, Alexx, Jaycie, Joni and Mariska became new sisters to me.

My own little family within the family changed. My sub Sio left us unexpectedly. I collared vero but she found her love for Gor roleplay and she left us as a dear friend. Our only boy, slaveboy Santana found his way to be officially in the family. And just recently I collared my sweet Doll Dana. I am happy to report that my sister Mariska became my subsister and is now often with us as part of our family branch. And … I expect to collar another girl soon.

We lost our home in Rivers Rock. That was a dramatic change. As the tiers weren’t payed to LL the sim closed without any warning. I wrote to LL and they kindly reopened the sim for 3 days so that we could grab our belongings. Suddently we were homeless. We had our family home at Yasminia but no “Chez Maurer” to retreat to. So during these days in October 2010 I looked around restlessly for a new place. Finally we decided to settle in Dragon Cove where we rented a quarter sim. We share the new home place with our dear friend Claven who was neighbor to us already in Rivers Rock. And Virgo and Tyra also became neighbors to us. It is great to have neighbors like you are!
With Rivers Rock we also lost the place for our Friday Night parties hosted by our DJ Virgo. Luckily the new homeplace provides enough prims to establish a new club where we’re dancing now every Friday 1 PM SLT / 9 PM GMT. You’re heartly invited to join us there.
Apropos dancing. Dancing and listening to good music has become our main activity besides our kinky part of SL. We often chill out at Venustus before we go to bed and wet met a lot of nice people over there. Although it is a quite laggy place because of the large audience once you managed to teleport there and have rezzed the lag is bearable as long as you talk mainly in IM and as long as the music stream lasts. I can strongly recommend visiting.

Other activities we love are playing dice games or cards or to fence. That’s another way to chill out in SL when you’re not in the mood for kinky plays. Oh no, we didn’t loose our kinky side. It is still our main activity and you can sense the vibrations even when we chitchat about other things. We found new toys and animations, discovered other little mean toys like thumbcuffs and tongue clamps. We also give home to some decorative bondage toys either for short seasonal live objects like our lovely christmas tree replacement during the holidays or as long time live decoration like “it”. This deco is also mobile and can be placed elsewere if needed and “it” even moans when you push the right “buttons”.

My relation to Jenny has further strengthened. She did become quite as domme as myself just a bit more cruel at times but she’s still my beloved slave. She’s very attentive and I feel very spoiled having a partner like her. For christmas she bought a Chimera for me. That is a dancing animation worn at your head. It animates you and those who click it with lovely recurring dancing animations – all selected by Jenny. And I was sure that I had no wish at all. You surprised me again. Thank you my love!

Further changes? Yes the viewer. During my 3rd year we lost the Emerald viewer due to non-compliance with the LL 3rd party requirements. Since then and thank to the never ending patience and work of the Phoenix team we use the Phoenix viewer. I am happy that I have not to get used to the odd viewer 2. We do have multiple attachment points now as well as we do have display names now. The display names are not as bad as I thought as long as they are used wisely. And, I admit, they can be a lot of fun when they are embedded in long term roleplay.

Anything else changed? I became older. In SL this expresses in finding your own style, developing the appearance of your avatar, collecting the wardrobe you love either for casual or for kinky occasions, yes.. and collecting the according shoes, boots, heels, ballets and stilettoes. You may compare me in 2008 and me in 2011 …. not any additional wrinkle, still as young as at my first day in SL but nonetheless .. not the same.

16 days old in SL

3 years old in SL now ... no additional wrinkle at all *grins

I am very happy and content with my SL and I hope that my 4th year will be as exciting as the 3rd year was. My greatest wish for my 4th year is that the above mentioned base of my SL will not change. I want to end this entry just like I ended the entry for my 2 year anniversary:
Dear Jenny, Dear Goddess, 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 3rd year in 2nd life. Many thanks!

August 8th, 2011, So I sit here in Yasminia

So I sit here in Yasminia on the small island with the yellow anchor, settings to sundown, listening to the music chanel that Yasmin as chosen and look at Yasmin’s house, the lighthouse, the tree with the pixies. I feel strange beyond all the support and love I expierenced yesterday and today. The collar around my neck is off. Strange my collar is off, Yasmin is wearing a collar now.

So I sit here in Yasminia at the edge of a different SL for me and my family. My view goes over to the house and memories come alive, pictures, scenes, beloved people who left. What did I do? Why? I had crying attacks today. Shall I really write about this? Is this my way to get it off my chest? Do I need to justify? My collar lays in Goddess’ lil skybox on the table. A piece of steel that companied me as a part of my avatar and my SL for 39 months.

I had a great time as Yas’ Enforcer. Goddess reputation, my sisters, her family, the innumerable friends were base of my SL and helped me to become what I am here. All gone now? ‘Life is a bitch’ is one of Goddess’ (now Yasmin for me) most favorite sayings. Moments can’t be held forever, people change, preferences change. Our yearning for new kinks, for progress, for fun and for love keeps us going and moving on. Life is a bitch, everything changes with time. Over the last couple of months I began to question my role in Yasmin’s family. My SL went well, hers went well as she said but they went parallel. Different timezone and RL did add to it. To make it very clear for everyone: It is not Yasmin’s fault, nor is it mine, nor anyone’s else!
My decision to ask for release was facing reality as it is and when I did ask Yasmin expected it. I felt that she was prepared for it. It might be our both fault not having talked earlier.

So I sit here in Yasmina very thankful for what the Eurobrats and I had. Thankful for the respect and dignity with which we ended one chapter and began a new one for both of us, for both families which are and will stay connected. No bad word, no reproaches but sort of mutual understanding that Life is a bitch.

So I sit here in Yasminia my thoughts go back over these 39 months…. Stonehaven, Samatha, Mises West, Rivers Rock, Bratz Club, Teyonas, rabea, Yasminia, Caer Heartsdale, the patio in SH.. the deck at Yasminia, Hotel California, my wedding, Chez Maurer, Yar, Jill, Valerie, the new Yasminia, the pool area, Greedy, the clock with the falling numbers….hundreds, thousands of pictures spring alive. Innumerable family charts still on my harddrive – and now a families chart with 2 families on it.
Thank you for our path together, Yasmin. Thank you for all you provided for me and Jenny and for our subs. I hope and I am confident that our way is not finished but just got a new direction .. and moving on as sisters.

I’ve once been told that my loyality and devotion to Yasmin is undyable. And so I sit here in Yasminia and realize that it is still there, maybe the emphasis has changed. My thankfullness, my love and my trust in my sister is undyable.

I love you Yasmin

Dio’s 2nd year in Second Life Feb 11th 2010

My second year in SL is over today and I’ll start my third. It seems to me like yesterday when I remember my first days in SL. And it also seems like yesterday reading what I wrote in my letter to my family and friends on the occasion of my 1st rezz day. And now the 2nd year is already over.
I am happy that I can say that the base of my SL hasn’t changed in this 2nd year:

– I am still owned by Goddess Yasmin Heartsdale
– I am still spoiled by the love and devotion of my partner and Ehesklavin Jenny
– I am still part of a lovely large family
– I am still running my own family branch
– I am still exploring SL and myself
– I am still happy to be here

Now let’s have a look back to this 2nd year – just a short one. What did happen beside having fun together? What are the events that I want to remember when I’ll read these lines again after my third year.
There have been some changes in my family branch of Yasmin’s brat pack.

– My sister Fae vanished suddently and didn’t return a long while. She had been in hospital being seriously ill but she returned after several months. She left again very quickly as she fell in love in RL. That is a happy reason to leave and we’re glad for her. She’ll be back and explore herself on her own now. Well, at least I hope that she will be back as she told us.

– My sister Claire who is living in the Euro Brat timezone became closer to me and with permission of Goddess she submitted to me like Fae did before. Claire is a lovely sweet girl as her permanent tag expresses “Goddess’ sweet girl”. She is always smiling and I feel spoiled by her. Her happiness and mostly good mood is infectious.

– Pike and her wife Danii were my subs for about 3 months and they are still close friends of us. Unfortunately our focus in SL and some play preferences didn’t fit and Pike and Danii left us again consensually and friendly. And we see eachother from time to time. I still love you both and will not stop feeling close to both of you .

– During this 2nd year Goddess collared rabea – a new sister for me. Rabea is from Germany. We had a bad start as sisters and some arguments but later we became close as sisters and very close friends. And rabea is now a permanent part of my family branch. Jenny and myself are often together with rab and we enjoying playing together, shopping or sometimes just talking.

– rabea suddently left and we didn’t know what happened to her. Siobhan, her sub, spent a lot of time with Jenny and me and became part of my little family. Finally and without knowing about rabea’s return I collared Siobhan October 4th 2009. On rabea’s return – she has had a serious accident and spent several months in hospital – we didn’t turn time back and Sio stayed mine. Welcome to me and welcome to us, Sio. We love you.

– vanessa companied us during my 2nd year in SL. She is a very loyal sub and always a reason to smile. We don’t see her often enough unfortunately. But when she’s online her ways, her devotion and her constant demand for love and play is a very special expierience. Thank you, vanessa … Maurer’s Joy!

– Recently Goddess approved that Allana Mikadze may join our family. End of November 2009 Jenny and me found Alla helplessly at “Love hurts” and took control of her. Allana is a slave, owned and forced. Now she’s also officially our sub. Welcome to the Eurobrat family, Alla (who is from the US btw.). Welcome to Yasmin’s Brat Pack as a grandbrat.

– Last but as everyone know definitively not least, Jenny. Jenny was with me all the time in this 2nd year. No day where we didn’t talk or had contact per other media. I can’t imagine my SL without her and there’s no reason to imagine that. Thank you so much my dear wife and Ehesklavin.
So my part family did grow a little bit. It was one major part of my SL in this 2nd year and has become very important for me.

There have been some changes to Goddess’ family which I call my greater family. Besides rabea, who is from Germany, I got 2 other new sisters. Anna form the US and Valerie from Germany. Valerie was Goddess’ slave before. She was the observant of the decking in Yasminia and she grew until Goddess collared her has her brat. It is still simply great to be part of such a great family. Thank you, Goddess. I do love you and I would submit to you immediately again if I weren’t owned already.

Goddess and her brats

Some of my friendships have cooled down a little bit unfortunately, some became more intensive and I made some new friends. Any list might not be complete so I better don’t mention you all by name here.

What else is new and related to this 2nd year in SL? Maybe it is my life in two home sims. There is our beach house and our retreat Chez Maurer in Rivers Rock. And there is Yasmina. My sister Yar gave that sim to Goddess who establish our family sim there. I was permitted to build Hotel California in Yasminia. The hotel has provided some nice hours for play and we go there regularly for playing or visiting guests or introducing guests.

I could fulfill my intention to get back to Pandora’s box. Over several weeks I was there again quite often but then I couldn’t anymore …. and now I’ll intend take a next try.
Jenny and me got very close in this 2nd year. We had some nice adventures together. Particulary we love to do quests.

Jenny knows me very well and she now gets green lights. During a green light I switch and submit to her. She has always a new treat in stock for me. And together with rab or any other sister or friend …. well, it can be hard but also very exciting once I’m fully caught by roleplaying and switching to the sub role. As a sub Jenny brought me over some limits that I had before. Thank you, my love. Nonetheless once the green light is off Jenny is again my beloved slave.

I continued to collect pictures and my slideshows have quite a lot pictures in the meanwhile, several hundred and sometimes when it is quiet in SL.. well it is rarely… then I am content just to sit and watch the sildeshow. With the date and a short text displayed with each picture, that is really a journey into nice memories.
Friday nights are your Club nights. We spent them at the Bratz Club in RR. Virgo, a former sis and close friend, makes a perfect party of it each time.
Dancing leads me to intan. I replaced all dances that we had on the roof of “Chez Maurer” with on intan controller and now we can dance everywhere on our plot and choose the dance from the controller. A great invention !

During my 2nd year in SL I could celebrate a lot of anniversaries beginning with my 1st collaring day with Goddess, my one year collaring of Jenny and vanessa and my 1st wedding anniversary.

I am curious of my third year. Before all I wish that my little family stays together and I wish that I can celebrate 2nd anniversaries with my owner Goddess Yasmin, with my Ehesklavin, with vanessa and some 1st anniversaries. I am looking forward to further explore SL, to meet new friends, to intensify old friendships, to having exciting play sessions, to adventures, to enhance my bdsm expierence, to nice talks. There will be changes as life goes on in RL and SL. I just hope that I can avoid any drama as far as possible – let us always remember that we are here to enjoy and to live beyond the possibilities of our RL and that we are humans with emotions. I just hope that the base of my SL will stay like a solid rock.

Dear Jenny, Dear Goddess, 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 2nd year in 2nd life. Many thanks!

Love
Diomita
