Made for Each Other – A very Special Valentine Story

Made For Each Other

Lightning bright in sky. Thunder angry roar. It is time.
I know what I do – watch Doctor work many times. Doctor fail many times. Doctor make others. Now Doctor dead. I not dead. I not fail. I not die.
They say I freak. They say I evil. They say I mindless monster. They wrong. Words not easy, but I smart. Smart like Doctor. More smart than Doctor. I live and Doctor dead.
Body lay on the table. Sheet cover. All wires in. All tubes in. All ready. I work hard for days and must finish tonight. They think I dead. If they find they try kill again. Must leave tonight. Finish work first.
Time rise table high. High for lightning to hit. Lightning hit big metal pole. Go into body. Lightning is life. Life is heart beating. Woman live again.
They come. They angry at Doctor. Kill Doctor and fire destroy house. Doctor have woman in house when they come. Woman scream and beg. They leave her to die.
They think I die in fire. I know secret tunnel under house. I take woman to tunnel. Fire burn her face. Fire burn her body. I help her. I protect her in tunnel until people go away.
Night come and I carry woman to mountain. Doctor make me in mountain. They think I made at house. They wrong. I walk in water. No one follow. Dogs no follow. I carry her long time. She die in arms while I carry.
I watch Doctor when he work. I watch. I learn. I do same as Doctor when he create others. Others die in fire. I smart. I live. Woman live again.
I do what Doctor do to others. Doctor give me extra inside. He give me two. I give woman heart. I give woman lung. I close chest way Doctor do. Put extras in woman. Hole in chest sew close like Doctor show. No pain when I take from me. For her. For woman.
Lightning hits pole. I bring table down. I wait. I see body move under sheet. Take sheet off. See arm move. See leg move. I watch long time. She have heart from inside me. It is strong. It is good. It beats.
Burns bad. Hair gone. She beautiful. I love woman.
Eyes open. Woman look at me. Woman not scared. I lift her. I hold her. She put hand on my face. She know me. She love me. Woman wife before doctor made me live again.
I make her live again. My heart inside her. Make her live again. We made for each other.
THE END? OR A NEW BEGINNING?

My new Creature

“Learn from me, if not by my precepts, at least by my example, how dangerous is the acquirement of knowledge, and how much happier that man is who believes his native town to be his world, than he who aspires to become greater than his nature will allow.”

[- Mary Shelley, Frankenstein -]

Today I come to you with my last picture for the “Electric Sheep” exhibition (HERE). For this picture, my last one, I wanted to have something with interaction, with soul and with imagination. I know that cyber is not so much Vivien’s cup of tea, but as well know she can make work everything and I do love to work with her a lot, especially if it comes to emotions and moods on pictures. She has a wonderful hand to create poses in a very certain way. I had the idea of “making my own creature” for this picture and already pictured me being in a pod, being that new creation of someone. When I was talking to Vivien about it she instantly jumped on that idea and helped me to finalize my idea and enrich it with her pose and her pixels as well. It always amazes me… when I ask her about a certain style, about a certain mood or look… it doesn’t need a lot of words and she quickly dresses up perfectly to the situation. Many know her as the dark, romantic Goth girl, but she has so many hidden talents in all kind of genres! It really is rare that you can communicate with people without talking too long. She just gets my ideas, my vibes and my mood so fast – it really is a pleasure to work with her and even more to call her friend or even sister. She really is the sister I never had. If you want to know what she is wearing – just ask her 😉

Thank you Vivien, I am really grateful you stepped in to my life

Christmas – Dark Edition – Krampus

Eclipse Magazine // December 2021 // Page 160-167 // https://issuu.com/eclipsemagazinesl/docs/eclipse_magazine_december_2021

For the December Issue of the Eclipse Magazine, I certainly wanted to do something Christmas related. But if you know me, I can not be something sweet and shiny, it had to be something with a dark twist. So the “Krampus” tradition came to my mind.

To explain “Krampus” I would like to quote Wikipedia to make sure I get nothing wrong with translating my German version *winks*

“The Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure in Central and Eastern Alpine folklore who, during the Christmas season, scares children who have misbehaved. Assisting Saint Nicholas, the pair visit children on the night of the 5th December, with Saint Nicholas rewarding the well-behaved children with modest gifts such as oranges, dried fruit, walnuts and chocolate, whilst the badly behaved ones only receive punishment from Krampus with birch rods.
The origin of the figure is unclear; some folklorists and anthropologists have postulated it as having pre-Christian origins. In traditional parades and in such events as the Krampuslauf (English: Krampus run), young men participate dressed as Krampus and attempt to scare the audience with their antics. Such events occur annually in most Alpine towns. Krampus is featured on holiday greeting cards called Krampuskarten.
Since 1984, the character has become better known globally, having been portrayed in Hollywood horror films. Almost unknown before this time, Krampus has begun to become part of American popular culture.”
[- Wikipedia -]

Don’t forget to take look at the actual Eclipse Magazine as they do have a lot of amazing content this month – yes there you can find all the amazing sweet and shiny Christmas things as well *winks* I hope you nevertheless enjoy your Christmas, even with me teasing with the darker vibes!

! Merry Christmas !

Play with Me!

I already told you about the amazing “Electric Sheep” exhibition a few days ago (HERE). Todays picture is another one of 3 I had to create besides the pictures they chose from my Flickr. I wanted to have one, which is more playful and more fun than the “serious” ones I usually take, when it comes to cyber or sci-fi. That doesn’t mean it is no fun for me to do cyber, I really enjoy it but usually I have deep emotions or deeper thoughts to those pictures, as I do have a storyline in mind when I create them. This time it was “just for fun”. The exhibition is still up if you want to jump paver and take a look at it. The gallery is a sweet little one, with so much charm and done with so much love and dedication – you really should see it *winks*

On cold wings, she’s coming
You better keep moving
For warmth, you’ll be longing, nightingale
Come on, just feel it
Don’t you see it?
You better believe
When she embraces your heart turns to stone
She comes at night when you are all alone
And when she whispers your blood shall run cold
You better hide before she finds you
Whenever she is raging
She takes all life away
Haven’t you seen?
Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

I had the great pleasure to be invited to be part of an exhibition. I was totally surprised when Randy wrote me a message on Flickr and asked me if I would like to exhibit at his amazing, sweet gallery called The 22 Art Space in Bellisseria on the Grenouille sim. The Exhibition is called Electric Sheep. This is one of 3 new pictures I created, which are showed there together with some of my already released ones Randy and Ricco chose from my Flickr. There are 2 amazing other artists showcasing their incredible work. You can read the details HERE and if you would like to take a look yourself – and I would suggest that, as the place really looks amazing – just take the DIRECT TP.

The Song of Despair

“A Thousand Words” is a collaborative Second Life photography project dedicated to expression through creative imagery. For our inaugural exhibition, Second Life residents created photographs inspired by renowned poet Pablo Neruda’s “Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair.”

Today I have something very special… I recently was invited to be part of an amazing exhibition. Trouble approached me, asking me if I would kike to be part of his newest vision. He told me about Pablo Neruda and his new project “A Thousand Words”and  sent me a link to Pablo Neruda’s”20 Love Poems and a Song of Despair” – I had to choose one. It took me a few hours to decide which one would be “mine” as they are all amazing and so I really had to think which one would be the most inspiring for myself.

You can watch all the amazing artwork HERE but the exhibition inworld is so much more impressive as it is held in a perfect designed place where you even can hear the poems read to you

Visit the exhibition from November 1st until November 21st this year – You really should not miss it!

Location: A Thousand Words

And here is my choice and above the picture I did, inspired by the amazing “The Song of Despair

The memory of you emerges from the night around me.
The river mingles its stubborn lament with the sea.
Deserted like the wharves at dawn.
It is the hour of departure, oh deserted one!
Cold flower heads are raining over my heart.
Oh pit of debris, fierce cave of the shipwrecked.
In you the wars and the flights accumulated.
From you the wings of the song birds rose.
You swallowed everything, like distance.
Like the sea, like time. In you everything sank!
It was the happy hour of the assault and the kiss.
The hour of the spell that blazed like a lighthouse.
Pilot’s dread, fury of blind driver,
turbulent drunkenness of love, in you everything sank!
In the childhood of mist my soul, winged and wounded.
Lost discoverer, in you everything sank!
You girdled sorrow, you clung to desire,
sadness stunned you, in you everything sank!
I made the wall of shadow draw back,
beyond desire and act, I walked on.
Oh flesh, my own flesh, woman whom I loved and lost,
I summon you in the moist hour, I raise my song to you.
Like a jar you housed the infinite tenderness,
and the infinite oblivion shattered you like a jar.
There was the black solitude of the islands,
and there, woman of love, your arms took me in.
There was thirst and hunger, and you were the fruit.
There were grief and ruins, and you were the miracle.
Ah woman, I do not know how you could contain me
in the earth of your soul, in the cross of your arms!
How terrible and brief was my desire of you!
How difficult and drunken, how tensed and avid.
Cemetery of kisses, there is still fire in your tombs,
still the fruited boughs burn, pecked at by birds.
Oh the bitten mouth, oh the kissed limbs,
oh the hungering teeth, oh the entwined bodies.
Oh the mad coupling of hope and force
in which we merged and despaired.
And the tenderness, light as water and as flour.
And the word scarcely begun on the lips.
This was my destiny and in it was my voyage of my longing,
and in it my longing fell, in you everything sank!
Oh pit of debris, everything fell into you,
what sorrow did you not express, in what sorrow are you
not drowned!
From billow to billow you still called and sang.
Standing like a sailor in the prow of a vessel.
You still flowered in songs, you still broke the currents.
Oh pit of debris, open and bitter well.
Pale blind diver, luckless slinger,
lost discoverer, in you everything sank!
It is the hour of departure, the hard cold hour
which the night fastens to all the timetables.
The rustling belt of the sea girdles the shore.
Cold stars heave up, black birds migrate.
Deserted like the wharves at dawn.
Only the tremulous shadow twists in my hands.
Oh farther than everything. Oh farther than everything.
It is the hour of departure. Oh abandoned one!
[- Pablo Neruda -]

Its hunger was staggering

The craving for human flesh drove the creature into the early morning fog. In the cemetery awaited a new grave and sustenance. As it neared the fresh mound of dirt, the sound of heavy footsteps stopped the creature.
Two men, hunters with rifles slung over their shoulders, approached the forest near the creature’s hiding place. Dense trees and heavy foliage darkened the wooded corpse. Only a stray beam of sunshine could break through the heavy veil.
It followed quietly behind the humans. The hunters were now the prey. With each silent step, the creature shifted into wolf form. If somehow it was seen, a wolf in these woods would not raise an alarm that its true form would.
The first human made no sound as the creature sprang from its cover and easily snapped the man’s neck. The human in the lead turned to speak to his companion, but was dead before he could aim his weapon.
The creature chuckled as it shapeshifted back to its nature form. Humans are so easy to hunt. Their arrogance makes them careless. As if their weapons could ever harm any of its kind.
The young ones will benefit from the blood and after a week or two, the rotted flesh will be quite tasty. For now, it needed to return to the grave as planned. It had no taste for fresh meat. Only rotted, decayed flesh would satisfy the gnawing in the pit of its stomach.
Working quickly, in case more human hunters were about, the creature clawed through the fresh dirt to the plain wooden box buried deep. Oh, this one was a fat, succulent morsel of a man. Women tended to be too lean and children were hardly substantial.
The temptation to feast now was overwhelming, but the creature dare not spare the time. The risk of exposure was too great here in the cemetery. It closed the now empty casket and returned the dirt so no one would be suspicious.
Careful to leave no evidence behind, the creature picked up the body as if as it weighed nothing. It returned to the woods where it left the two hunters stuffed beneath the remains of a fallen tree.
It was a good day. Food aplenty for months. But winter was approaching. It would need to forage a few more times to insure a comfortable hibernation before the first snow fell. A ghoul has to do what a ghoul has to do to keep her family fed.
The creature returns to its lair. an old and forgotten slaughter house far from town. The perfect place to hide and raise its young ones until it is time for them to leave the nest. Its children should be sleep now, but will wake soon and demand food.
Yet one is missing – the eldest. A lopsided smile creeps across the creatures face as it carries the food to the preparation area. There, hard at work draining the blood from a fresh corpse, is the eldest child. The young one looks up with a look of apprehension, a need for approval.
The Ghoul drops the corpses to the floors and slowly approaches the young Ghoul who is squatted on the floor beside a blood filled bucket. Its hand caresses the young one’s face as a sense of pride washes over it. A macabre smile appears on the Ghoul’s face.
Baby’s first kill.

Angels & Demons – Part 2

Originally shot for Eclipse Magazine // June 2021 Page 159-168 // https://issuu.com/eclipsemagazinesl/docs/eclipse_magazine_june_2021

Angels & Demons

What would you choose? Who would you become? Would you rather be enchanted or consumed by Heaven or Hell, Light or Dark, Good or Evil, Love or Hate, or to be Blessed or Cursed. Angels and Demons are polar opposites of one another within many cultures and in fiction. On one hand, they are a form of symbology and on the other they are seen in religion, mythology, and fantasy. Magical and mystical beings that we will read find in books, movies,movies, TV, anime or plays from ancient to modern. Even within the confines of real life and Second Life, we will roleplay and become one of them.

Despite the difference in abilities and the cultural milieu they come from, they share some similarities, such as, hierarchical ranks, miraculous or magical powers, and the enmities and friendships with each other and with mortals. Though Angels and Demons are often in a never-ending battle to defeat the other, in that chaos comes a little spark: opposites, suddenly attracted to or obsessed  with each other. Will they escape and find peace or be consumed by their conflict?

Their appearances can differ, both taking on ugly, distorted, fear-inducing manifestations, or transforming into beautiful, ethereal and alluring personas. Angels usually are depicted with long, modest, feather-like flowing garments, while a Demons attire is often tight, conforming to every curve or their form making it matter little how much or how little clothing they wear.. Although in the more modern age and flight of fantasy, anything goes, the color palettes don’t often change. Angels decorated in white and softened colors and pastels signifying purity and innocence, guiding you on your travels, while the Demons adorn black and deep, rich colors, warning you to watch where you tread, but do you want to? Will they draw you into the darkness forever lost in their grasp.
