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!

We hope you can come please RSVP to Dio or Jen (or better both)

This is the original notecard that we sent to invite for Jenny’s and my wedding. It has been a year of weddings. Yar Telling married Rayn Halfpint in July, 2008. One week later Yasmin Heartsdale married Teyonas Miklos on July 14th, 2008. And on September 12th, 2008 Ilandere Boa (aka Illy, a short time sister of mine in Yasmin’s family) married Shuggi Grunspan. It was at this wedding that Illy commented to me seeing Jenny and me dancing that she senses me being the next getting married. For me it was as if the scales fell from my eyes. Stupid me! I want her, and i want her married to me – Jenny, my slave!
I remember that I couldn’t wait to ask her. I invited her to dance at a romantic place in the clouds .. and asked her. And she hesitated a few seconds to tease me but it was a “Yes” or maybe a “Yes, Mistress”. Anyway we got engaged September 14th, 2008. From that day on, we began to plan our marriage. We became partners in SL September 30th, 2008. We had a lot to prepare. The place, the ceremony, the wedding cake, the dresses, the invitation and, and, and … We asked Yasmin to conduct the ceremony and she agreed. You may imagine that it wasn’t easy to find an appropriate date for it as we were on different timezones. But we found a date and it worked out well. We had a great wedding ceremony and party. Yasmin’s speech was touching and it will now be safed here:

Welcome dearest Family and friends,
what a precious gift we are brought here to witness and share in today. The ultimate gift of love, the gift of devotion, the gift of loyalty, and the gift of friendship.
We share in witnessing Jen’s gift of submission, her gift of friendship and of companionship. We share in witnessing Dio’s gift of Devotion, guardianship, protection, and guidance.
But this union is more precious and special because what is shared extends beyond the boundariess of Second Life, it envelopes the “hearts behind the pixels”, for there are real loving hearts behind the avatars here.
Jen’s devotion to her Mistress is the standard by which devotion should be measured. Diomita’s care and guidance is complete and without reservation.
If Jen is the standard of devoted submission, it is matched only by Dio’s loving attention and devoted ownership. Even in times of reprimand, the love that is between them fully surrounds them.
For Jen, this is an affirmation of what already exists, that Dio is her best-friend, her love, her companion and that she has done so much beyond what most in Second Life might expect in order to care for Jen, for her heart and her mind. We who surround them and know them, and especially their closest family, never tire of watching them enveloped in their own cocoon of love, respect, and complete and total trust.

We wanted no gifts, yet we got a gift – a honeymoon of one week in a private skybox which was set up by the family and the friends for us. It was a very special week. And during this week I also granted Jenny to dominate me the first time. We loved the skybox and when the week was over we asked every contributor to sell us the inventory. We got everything and kept the skybox over all these years. Yes, it has changed a bit over time, new pictures, new furniture, new plants, a dance floor roof, Jenny’s private cage, yet the general design of it is still the same as is the fireplace. We called it “Chez Maurer” and up until today it is where we retreat at night or spend time just talking and enjoying togetherness.

Today it is 5 years that I married Jenny. We both never thought that we would stay together that long. Even in RL 5 years is already quite a time to stay together. This blog is full of memories about the time that we spent together on our journey in Second Life. And these memories are part of our RL too. What is missing in our blog here so far are the pictures of our wedding. There’re dozens of pictures! I selected a few for our blog now.

And today? We developed together on our journey in SL. Jenny brought out her dominant side and I began to submit to her first occasionally then more and more regularly. After my release of Yasmin’s collar it was just a matter of time and of consequence that I got collared by Jenny vice versa. So today we’re a domme couple enjoying our family and friends. We have developed rules and signs for the moment we submit to the other. And it is the mutual trust that allows us to let go fully and to enjoy from both sides of the leash. Thank you, my Ehesklavin, my wife, my slave and my owner for 5 wonderful years of married bliss.

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
Diomita

At times melancholy

Now that I am 2 years collared by Goddess the family just changes a lot. Goddess took a short break of SL and shortly after her return she and Tey parted. While I never talked much to Tey I always appreciated her patient and calm ways. And I could always rely on her. Although I don’t know how things will develop it leaves me being melancholy. Tey was Goddess’ first brat and she companied me as a sister through nearly all my SL life.
At the same time, and I know it is just a coincidence, my sister Claire asked to be released from Goddess’ collar and consequently also gave up her submission to me. Claire simply wants to explore other things in SL and roam around free and independent. She will stay close to us and I am happy to know her. My other subsister Fae didn’t return really since Summer 2009 except for 3 or 4 short visits. We hope that she’s doing well and as far as we know she is doing well.
Rayn, who also was always sort of a family member, left SL. Luckily we know she’s doing fine and she has made this decision as she’s convinced that it is the best for her.
I read several other blogs who dealt with the subject of people suddenly leaving SL without any notice. I can only say that it hurts when close friends simply leave and cut all connections. Although this is a virtual world the relations that we build can be quite strong. And those that left, left a footprint in SL. They left people thinking of them and worrying what happened. My sub Siobhan is one of those who left and I look at the pictures that I have and ask myself whether she will ever come back, whether she’s doing well. Let’s hope the best.
Last but not least when Goddess took a break and used the word “hiatus”, I needed to look it up in my dictionary. I begin to doubt now – hiatus might be a SL virus.

When something is changing we tend to become melancholy as we know what we had and as we have a natural discomfort about the unknown future. Just writing this down helps me to overcome this discomfort. I look forward happy about what I had in SL and confident to be resistant to the hiatus virus.

Doing my 2nd year revival trial for Goddess

For my upcoming 2nd year anniversary of being collared by Goddess I asked her to lock me down for a week. That might sound strange to those who know me particularly as I have had no idea how and where she might lock me. She just said that she grants my wish.
Since Tuesday I sit in a capsule. the same capsule as during my trial. Goddess has placed a cask with a wooden dildo just in front of the capsule and when Jenny is online she rides the dildo an comes unrealistic often. She counted every 4 minutes. I have to watch how she polishes the dildo with her pussy. Do I begin to develop a fetisch for wooden pussy polished dildos?

Dio in her capsule surrounded by family and friends
Anyway as I kneel here tied tightly in my cosy capsule I have time to write.
I get a lots of visits. My family comes to me and I enjoy the attention that I get. Even my sister Yar has been here today*smiles. What a nice vist. My newest sub, vero Lacombe drops by whenever she’s online. My sister Valerie visited me a lot already. This morning I saw my only slaveboy Santana. Today also Danii, my cutie, was online. I had left her leashed and blindfolded, deaf and gagged with her armbinder on the terrace. Yar managed to move the leash pole down to my cell and cutie companied me for over an hour. She was so eager to see me but couldn’t. Later today Pike was here. She managed to escape from prison to see me. Awwww, I’m spoiled. My sister Tey who I hadn’t see for a long while was here. Goddess was here daily whenever she could. Claire was here. And many others dropped by. Tyra, who companied me during my trial spent several hours with me *muah. And of course Jenny companies me when she’s online. And yesterday Jenny and me listened to the stream of our regular Friday night party hosted by Virgo Babii. What a fun. So I can really have a good time.
My thoughts go 2 years back often. What a rare luck I had to meet Goddess and to enter this family. I feel loved … and love my family in return.

Come and visit me as long as I am here *smiles brightly
