Backflash November 2019 – News from flo – Chapter 15: Becoming a drone (November 14th, 2014)

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 this 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 November 2019, I scrolled 5 years back to November 2014 and found several posts suitable for the Backflash series. As I couldn’t decide which one to pick I publish 2 Backflash post for November. The first one is a post that was written by slave Flo. slave Flo describes her expierences as a drone in it. What a fit, what a coincidende as we had the slaves Gwendi, Christin, cecy and Flo in isolation suits again just this month!

News from flo
Chapter 15: Becoming a drone

Some days ago, Tyra told us of a free drone suit that she and Virgo tried out and she was excited about it. And as we know about our slave Flo’s kinks it was obvious that we decided to put her in this drone suit (we can provide information and the landmark if you’re interested). Slave Flo (or better: L.A. Drone 171) is a drone now for some days already and provided this next chapter for you to read and enjoy. As always, i only revised typos and added the pictures. Here’s slave Flo’s chapter 15:

Woahhhhh….. that wasn’t expected ……
Lately my Mistresses offered me a trip for shopping. If they do… they are purchasing …. They don’t much window shopping. So we arrived a very special store. Not much items just one big sign – get your free suit. Mistress Jenny was short in ordering – “get this slave” – wear!!!
As Flo know – this tune doesn’t promise playful mood – she did was she had been told ……. and seconds later she has been sealed inside a very special latex suit. It was comfortable to wear, only the fingers couldn’t be spread anymore due the very compressing mittens. I had become a “Drone”!!! I appeared in a shiny latex suit, and Mistress Jenny told me that this is sealed with a special glue that very rarely come off. As soon I had read the note delivered with the suit I knew why. The wearer is fully dependent on public. Anyone can play with drones – they just have to follow what is decided.
One thing made me shivering – the charger – an oral charger that charges the drones energy by a big moving thing … entering her mouth. A very humiliating position that drone can’t impede. The feeling inside was wonderful – like be saved from outside of the world. I was overwhelmed and thanked my owners for that very special change. Drones view of her Situation:
Drones are friendly and helpful. They don’t know about time, duration and numbers. They don’t fight against her fate.
Drones are depending her charge level, able to see or at low level become a blurred vision up to blind.
Drone has useful openings on her suit. Drones meet at the Drone station to get charged if the oral charger isn’t of use due public.
Drones take her fate with much excitement and can’t negate they are most time sexually aroused.
Drones can be switched off – as a pleasurable game for her owners.

L.A. Drone 171 slave Flo

Since sealed and transformed Flo is the happiest one aside her Mistresses. She don’t feel the punishment – raising her restriction level as what it is. She know that its the only purpose for her to make her Mistresses happy. To be her vulnerable toy or pet. At the last Friday night dance party was the Drone the center of attraction for her Mistresses friends. The sometimes close impertinent up to naughty comments of the drone resulted in raising her restriction level to 9, which resultet in being tightly gagged and deaf – just be at the mercy of her so loved Mistresses. Miss Capello, you know the red haired, and Miss Claven, both enjoyed for once to play with the drones restrictions while Flo herself was in seventh heaven, knowing her owners chooses this transformation for her.
It’s only one way out of this suit…. to reach the level 0 – and that would be really hard as anyone in this world can at any time prevent that. Drone 171 is meanwhile a happy pet watching and see her Mistresses eyes in bright shine while they think about to choose higher or lower level. Drone 171 is grateful to her loved Mistresses to be chosen to walk into this adventure.
Thank you my wonderful Mistresses

Thank you, slave Flo for this report.

Dio and Jenny with L.A. Drone 171 slave Flo

simploring 2019 (112) – 20][21 gallery “Miss Barbara’s sense for ice”

Our friend Barbara Reiter-Jewell (Barbara Reiter) has her own little gallery called “20][21 gallery“, where she exhibits her own work every once in a while. Saturday, November 2nd, she opened her exhibition “Miss Barbara’s sense for ice” with pictures of her journey to Greenland in 2019: icebergs at Disco Bay, mainland shelf and some Greenland moods. It is an art show and installation showing an other view into arctic and arctic life.

In the 20][21 gallery you can see the pictures presented in different ways as slideshows, as panorama pictures where you can litteraly walk in and as wall filling exhibits. Besides the quality of the pictures the permanent changing of them at the walls and slideshows and different viewing angles allow you to immerse yourself into this artic world.

A view into the 20][21 gallery

I added a few sample pictures of the exhibiton so that you get an impression. The pictures look better in the 20][21 gallery. For me personally presenting photographs from the physical world in Second Life is a great fit between the two worlds that adds another dimenision to 2D pictures.

Simploring 2019 (105) Furillen

The name “Furillen” might sound familiar for many people in Second Life who like to explore this virtual world. Furillen.org is the website of Serene Footman where you find information about Serene’s outstanding places in Second Life. All of there creations have a strong connection with places in the physical world, places that not many people know or can get to easily. And these places always have something mysterious and a particular atmosphere.

Serene’s first creation was Furillen (at least as far as I know) and I visited it back in 2016, Of course I wrote a blogpost about it and I will add it below. And now Furillen is back! This gives those who missed seeing it the opportunity to discover and explore it. And for others it is very enjoyable to see it again.

I’m not sure if the whole sim is exactly the same as in 2016. For example I can’t remember the dining table on the roof terrace of the old plant site. But perhaps I missed it during my visit in 2016. I recognized a lot though.

I recommend to read Serene’s text about Furillen at his website Furillen.org before visiting. Knowing the background about Furillen makes the visit even more interesting.

Here’s my blogpost from 2016…

Furillen in Second Life

Saturday, November 5th, I looked up the SL destination guide and came across Furillen. Somehow the name rang a bell, but more about this later. The description read very tempting for me “Furillen depicts an island off the north-east coast of Sweden containing abandoned industrial builds that were once part of a former limestone factory. Remote, bleak and beautiful, this is a Second Life photographers haven.”
Once I arrived at Furillen and saw the cold, snowy, dismal island with the ruins of a former insudstry, I began to do some research about Furillen.

Furillen (older spelling Furilden) is an island in Rute on the northeast coast of Gotland, Sweden. For most of the 20th century, there was a limestone industry on the island until it was closed to the public by the Swedish military in the 1970s–90s, when radar installations became operational. The north part of Furillen is a nature reserve and a Natura 2000 area. Since 2000, the old factory buildings from the limestone industry have been used as hotel and conference venues by the Fabriken Furillen (the Furillen Factory) company, owned by photographer and entrepreneur Jonas Hellström. He started out using the abandoned factory and its surroundings as a backdrop for commercials and rock videos. (source Wikipedia)

November 5th – Furillen in Second Life: Arrving at Furillen

There’s a website about this sim furillen.org and I recommend visiting it first. The following information is en excerpt taken from furillen.org. The sim is owned and was created by Serene Footman in Ocotber 2015. Serene is an university professor in the UK in RL and the author of several books. “I originally ventured into Second Life as a researcher. I have always found creative sims to be the most compelling aspect of Second Life. By creating Furillen, I wanted to provide an environment in which photographers and Second Life wanderers would feel welcomed and inspired.
The virtual Furillen was designed to retain some of the most distinct and recognisable features of the real Furillen: the airstream, the tree line and pier, for example, together with the large slag heaps that still exist as a reminder of the old quarry. In addition, there are several buildings, the main being a hotel that – on the virtual Furillen – doubles up as an art space with a series of rooms featuring minimalist installations.


Furillen became quite a social space. It is, especially, a place for photographers. Serene has also staged events over the past year, most memorably those devoted to Bowie, Radiohead and Pink Floyd – and it is the Pink Floyd event that rang a bell for me. I’ve visited Furillen before together with Mistress Jenny during this event, not konowing about the background of Furillen. You can read in this blog about the Pink Floyd event in the article “Pink“.
It is amazing how perfectly Serene succeeded in making the virtual Furillen looking similar to the real island as you can see when you compare the pictures from wikipedia with the pictures taken in Second Life – chapeau! One of the old buildings is used for exhibitions and right now there’s an exhibition called “Birds” with photographs from Laura.


I roamed over the island and climbed on the structures and was impressed how intense you feel to be in a real abandoned industry ruin. The highlight of my visit was the hotel which is placed just behind the tree line. The tree line looks really misplaced on this island in this dismal environment but is also just reflecting the real Furillen. In the hotel each room is a different piece of art, mostly surreal and a heaven for photograhers.

November 5th – Furillen in Second Life: The hotel behind the tree line

I know I am by far not the first writing about Furillen. There’s a long list of articles on furillen.org. Nonetheless I wanted to keep something for this diary and to inspire others to have a look at Furillen. Thank you so much Serene for providing this sim to the public!

end of my original post 2016 about Furillen (I only updated the landmark)

Thank you so much Serene for bringing back Furillen. I enjoyed my (re-)visit at lot!

Simploring 2019 (95) The Far Away

I decided to do a quick simploring tour on Monday, August 19th, and picked The Far Away from scoop.it SL Destinations. It is a real classic sim, a place that I visited several times, particularly during my first years in Second Life, but I didn’t write anything about it.

The Far Away – Impressions (1)

The Far Away was created in 2006-2007 (!) by AM Radio and is maintained by Ziki Questi and Kinn (Kinnaird), Ziki Questi has her gallery in a seperate skybox above the sim. And what is it? Well …. a large wheat field with some oddities. Most outstanding is the big railroad engine in the midst of the wheat field. The plane above the wheat field reminded me of the film North by Northwest from Alfred Hitchock in which Gary Grant is running through a field chased by a plane. But I doubt that the plane is a reference to the film.

The Far Away – Impressions (2)

What else? A table with some radio equipment, a windmill, a diner table for two with a closet amidst the wheat field. And that’s about it. The horizont seems to be endless and you can recognized some farm houses far away. The Far Away is an art installation and everybody has to get to their own conclusions and interpretations. Considering that The Far Away exsists since 2007 and that the possibilities of building with mesh and sim surrounds were far more limited than they are today, it is still great and intriguing. A sim you should have seen! Oh and don’t forget to turn on your music and to listen to music from the 1920 and 1930, very fitting to The Far Away.

The Far Away – Impressions (3) / lower right is a view into Ziki Questi’s gallery

I also visited Ziki Questi’s gallery above The Far Away. She’s a SL photographer and has an eye for great motives. The pictures look great in the lights of the gallery and the rooms as large enough so that the pictures can develop their atmosphere. I just picked a few examples of what you can see there.

Thank you Ziki Questi and Kinn (Kinnaird) for keeping The Far Away available for so many years!

Simploring 2019 (92) Annabel Lee – A new experience at Daphne.Arts

The newest art installation at Daphne.Arts is about a famous poem by Edgar Allan Poe: Annabel Lee. I had the opportunity to visit it before it opened officially on September 2nd. At the landing you have to follow some instructions regarding the setting of your viewer and you have to accept a HUD that will add a black strip on the top and the bottom of your screen and that will provide background music and sound and most importantly the poem, you’re going to experience in a particular way at Daphne.Arts.

Annabel Lee – A new experience at Daphne.Arts / Landing at Daphne.Arts and at the art Installation itself

Once you arrive in the installation you’re surrounded by a foggy, dense atmosphere. The wind is blowing quite strong, you look over a bay and see some light above the mountains, a building and something on the op of a mountain. Candles lead you to the nearby shore and when you walk further, a way builds up leading you over the water… and vanishing behind you… so move on.

In the meanwhile you hear the poem ….

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes! – that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

Impressions of Annabel Lee – A new experience at Daphne.Arts (1)

Reaching the other shore across the bay the candles lead you to an old manor that is abandonned for many years. Inside you see the remainings of a once luxury life, clearly long gone, but you can still almost sense the former inhabitants. On the backfront of the manor you can walk to another shore and have a view back to the manor. It’s place was selected very smart providing perfect views in a quite rough mountain environment.

Impressions of Annabel Lee – A new experience at Daphne.Arts (2)

The candle way leads up to the sepulchre of Annabel Lee. Two angles guard her grave.

Annabel Lee is the last complete poem by Edgar Allan Poe (1809 – 1849). Like many of Poe’s poems, it explores the theme of the death of a beautiful woman. The love of the narrator and Annabel Lee is strong enough that it extends beyond the grave and the narrator believes their two souls are still entwined. (taken from wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annabel_Lee)

Impressions of Annabel Lee – A new experience at Daphne.Arts (3)

The installation of Annabel Lee at Daphne.Arts was created by Sheldon Bergman (sheldonbr) and Angelika Corral, who also own DaphneArts, opened in March 2016. Angelika reads the poem for us. Her voice, the hazy atmosphere, the many pictures let us literally dive into the particular love between the narrator and Annabel Lee.
I was impressed.

Backflash August 2019 – SL variety (August 26th, 2014)

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.
Five years ago I wrote a blog post about the variety of kinks and passions we, our family and friends are persuing. That hasn’t changed much! What changed is that some of the people mentioned in that post from 5 years ago have left Second Life (ronapotter, Queen Takacs) or that we have lost closer contact to them (Fae Howlett, Jill Freenote). Enjoy reading:

SL variety

Today’s post is about several things that happened the last days. I choosed the headline “SL variety” as I think it matches best and this post deals with several aspects of our SL within the Eurobrats right now. Dana and Kitty, both are at Stones ‘N Rubber (sNr) being ponies. Although ponyplay is not my major kink, I got drawn into it by our brats again and again. And I admit, it has “something”. First of all the restriction part of it is exciting. A pony really depends on the trainers and their moods. There might be play or not, they can’t influence it at all and their communication and abilities are very limited. Secondly also the training part is fun as the ponies have to learn and exercise, they have to be passionate. And thirdly, for the domme the total control is the kink and that is a kink I really share and enjoy.
As already mentioned before, our ponies Dana and Kitty are both at sNr right now and so is also my former sister Jill Freenote. When Kitty started her pony life, one of her trainers and friends was Merjeni (mer7maids8 resident) and Merjeni is still caring about Kitty’s pony life and her progresses to become just perfect. Today I got a message from Merjeni and 3 pictures that I’m going to share here:
The first photo is of Kitty standing in front of the cart track score board, I decided to train her over at Wildfire stables cart track, I am also a Wildfire trainer as well.

pony Kitty at Wildfire Stables

 

The cart track can be tricky but no difficult, require some skill to get the best score as possible.  Kitty actually did very well as you can by the score board, we were there for quite awhile.  I had also taken Kitty to Wild Ponygirls for the 24 hour slalom event to compete, these 24 hour ponygirl events are great for ponies who have different time zones, so it was perfect for kitty.  While Kitty did not place, she did put her pony heart into it, showing true spirit.  Later on I did bring FreeHoof (remark: this is my ex-sister Jill Freenote) to the Wild Ponygirls 24 hour slalom event that same night, she did place!  6th place to be exact after the event was entirely over.
I also included a favourite photo of me and kitty hanging out in the stall.

Merjeni and pony Kitty at sNr

 

Today I took Kitty and FreeHoof for some training on Wildfire’s race track, Kitty did so well, she is now on top of the scoreboard!”

ponies Kitty and Jill at Wildfire Stables

 

Ok, these are the news of our ponies. Mii, who I know from deviant Art, is also a trainer at sNr and she also helps to train our ponies there. Mii herself has several kinks and there’re not just about ponies – she also enjoys tight bondage and restrictions. Just a couple of days ago she called me being excited of her newest gear: an inflatable latex bag. While she looks funny in it, it might not be that funny being locked into the bag. Of course it is very restricting and can be locked up to total helplessness including taking away any way of communication. So don’t think, that it is only funny. Well, we fulfilled her wish and locked her into the bag and restricted her. Mii loves it, maybe because it is warmer inside than our European summer? Maybe. But I can also quote her: “Miss Diomita, I would like say something more .. I just love that suit so much as I wouldn’t like get out of it.” And as it looks funny, for example when she crawls over the ground like a worm, Mii (or “Maurer’s Toy” right now) gives reason for banter and chitchat. Just last night I took this picture as the family gathered and it really documents the variety of kinks we have within our family.

Various Kinks(1) from left to right: rona, Dio, Sarah, qt, Fae, Mii and slave

Various Kinks(2) from left to right: Dio, qt, Fae and Mii

And also last night I took this snapshot of slave and rona when Jenny joined. I like this picture and it demonstrates passionate dedication and submission without strong or restrictive bondage, thus another kink.

Various Kinks (3) Mistress Jenny with rona and slave

Last but not least this leads to rona and to her art. Rona is developing her own style of art, mixing different elements of SL as well as some RL and putting it together into pictures that tell a story or are simply just exciting. These 2 pictures are new and not yet published on deviant Art (but will be published there too very soon). Thank you rona!

Diary 2019 (104) July 14th/15th The shortest red light so far

My and our Sunday, July 14th, developed very different from what I and from what Mistress Jenny had planned. When I came inworld in the afternoon I had some time for myself as Mistress Jenny wasn’t yet present. I knelt in our skybox, my keys out and unavailable for myself. I was still dressed in the new plastic outfit that I had bought the night before – very sexy in my opinion. I had a few chats while I waited and one of those was with the domme, who Mistress and I had considered for a vacation for the two of us. I was reluctant to go to her or to see her at our place because my keys were out. Hence I didn’t go or invited her over.

Finally Mistress Jenny came inworld and we began to catch up first. Mistress Jenny suddenly ended our conversation and left. She went to this domme and soon after she summoned me to her. I wont go into details but some time later Mistress and I were tied up, and Mistress was naked and belted in addition. The domme had to leave for RL and we both were quite helpless. After 2 hours, Mistress and I had to log off as well. When we returned nothing had changed and we spent most of our night kneeling close to eachother and talking. I began to struggle out of my cuffs, firstly because it gave me something to do instead of simply wait and secondly in the event that the domme won’t reappear it was a plan B. But she returned close to 11 PM our time and ended the play quite surprisingly. Again I won’t go into details.

July 14th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita helplessly tied up somewhere, at club Domme a Domme and enjoying eachother at home

Mistress and I went home, dressed again and Mistress ended my red light exchanging my Ehesklavin collar with my partnering collar. I think that was one of the shortest red lights I ever had. We went to club Domme a Domme for half an hour and winded down a bit. And upon our return home, Mistress allowed me to lick her and to get my fix. And that’s about our Sunday.

July 15th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Psi’s realm with slave Christin and at home before we went off to bed

There’s not really much to report for the diary from Monday, July 15th. Mistress and I were only inworld a night and we had a game of skipee with Angelique and slave Chrstin, who learned the game that night. The game took long and when we were finished, Angelique went straight off to bed. Mistress Jenny and I took slave Christin for 15 minutes to Psi’s realm and then went off to bed ourselves.
