Belated Happy Halloween! – Or welcome to the dark season of the year *winks*

Slowly I start to believe Vivien more and more when she said 2022 is cursed and we just should skip the rest of it… After catching Covid the 3rd time I started to get better again when my the kids of my school gifted me some kind of weird flu – another week down. Now last weekend It felt like it would be over and agreed to have lunch with my mom. I said I will prepare everything and we will come down to eat, so she doesn’t have to get up all the stairs (we live in one house but 2 different apartments). So we prepared everything and already were on our way down. I still felt a little wonky so the second half of the stairs, my partner decided to take the potatoes and the meat off my hands which I was carrying in a pot. When he had everything, I thought I could get down a little faster and … DANG… I fell down the second half of the stairs. Right knee, left shoulder and left wrist did hurt like hell and parts of the hand already were dark red, a few days later dark blue. My  knee was the worst as I could not walk anymore kinda instantly – Another half week on the couch and not really able to sit or move.. bye bye Halloween *sighs*

So today is the first day I was able to get up again and limp on my own through the apartment to my computer and sit down to work a little bit.

So you will have to stick with some more creepy, spooky pictures for a while I guess, as I prepared quite a few for Halloween *giggles* – But then, most of you are anyway used to my dark side and the fact that the dark season for me doesn’t end with Halloween anyway :p

So belated Happy Halloween!

Gruesome Ghoul

The gruesome ghoul, the grisly ghoul,
without the slightest noise
waits patiently beside the school
to feast on girls and boys.
He lunges fiercely through the air
as they come out to play,
then grabs a couple by the hair
and drags them far away.
He cracks their bones and snaps their backs
and squeezes out their lungs,
he chews their thumbs like candy snacks
and pulls apart their tongues.
He slices their stomachs and bites their hearts
and tears their flesh to shreds,
he swallows their toes like toasted tarts
and gobbles down their heads.
Fingers, elbows, hands and knees
and arms and legs and feet –
he eats them with delight and ease,
for every part’s a treat.
And when the gruesome, grisly ghoul
has nothing left to chew,
he hurries to another school
and waits… perhaps for you…

Mother of Autumn

Made for the AttentionSL Magazine October 2022 // https://indd.adobe.com/view/4e274a38-1262-47d1-9f49-1c26ce8a0e62

Autumn’s Mother Heart

And there Autumn met me
with the loveliest of winds;
but a heart blown asunder
as her leaves would fall again.

She mourned like a mother
who may lose her only child.
So I looked past grand color,
to see grief in her raw wild.

The moon rose like a wizened soul,
as I swam into Autumn’s stream,
a whirlwind of warm memories
and soon-stolen wishes and dreams.

I spoke kind words that did little
to ease her deep growing beast.
She even trembled with vestiges
of leaf prints near her knees.

And so, I did the only thing
a human could truly do.
I bowed with grace before her,
and kept vigil through and through.

With bravery, Autumn finally let go . . .
as our tears shook and echoed
into winter’s bleary woe.

Time moved on as it has the want and will,
past winter, spring, and summer still;
and again, I greeted Autumn.

She smiled when she saw me,
and bowed to me with grace;
the human that saw fit to stay
in grief’s lonely darkened space.

I walked closer to divine Autumn,
the wisest mother of them all,
to notice lines and creases softer,
at peace with her destined fall.

Once more, sweet leaves moved from her
and, yes, she blustered and cried.
But, in the end, she whispered to me,
Love branches immortal, never to die.

When you came in the air went outAnd all those shadows there filled up with doubtI don’t know who you think you areBut before the night is throughI wanna do bad things with youI wanna do real bad things with you

When will we finally breathe?

Made for SL20 Magazine // Issue No. 12 // Skin Issue // August 2022

TUNES

I hear the sound, echoes beneathAngels and skylines meetAnd I’m straining to reachThe light on the surfaceLight on the other side

I feel the pages turningI see the candle burning downBefore my eyes, before my wild eyesI feel you holding meTighter, I cannot seeWhen will we finally breathe?

[- Fleurie -]

Again I had the great pleasure to do a magazine feature for SL20. This time it was all about skins. I really was thinking hard what I could do since I am not a fan of nude pictures and mostly magazines are PG anyway.

So my idea was to give a little variety of different ages (no kids) and to have some different types and genres. In the end I ended up with an aged version of myself, a super cute 20s ranged girl and my myself together with my sweet sister Vivien.

The theme of the magazine was skins, so at least I wanted to show a lot of skin and less clothing than usual 😉

With Vivien I love to do erotic pictures as she always show so much taste and not gets porno like so many other poses do. I am not prude, but I never saw the need for myself, to do pornographic pictures especially not official magazine or Flickr pictures. It can cause problems with so many rules and TOS of various platforms, that feels mostly too much hassle as I do want my pictures to be seen – not saying I am judging such pictures, I just do not want to do them for myself 😉

To me it is always very special to do pictures with Vivien… I never did hide that and so some asked me, what would be so special. Let me try to explain that… Usually when I do pictures I am all on my own. That means, I have an idea (mostly, sometimes sadly not) and then I try to work on it kinda wearing blinkers not thinking or looking left or right. That can become quite boring after some time and I miss some kind of challenge and if I work like that for too long it can get boring sometimes. With Vivien it is always like a “challenge” as we both have ideas and either I have to fit into her idea or she into mine… OR we develop something together out of an idea of one of  us – if that makes sense. Furthermore we seem to have an “alike thinking” if it comes to showcasing items. There is not much talk needed between us, to adapt the otters look or focus on the right item or genre, which makes it so sweet and easy and we can focus on the pictures, poses, angles and windlight. We never had a fight over a style or accessories that are needed or not, nor we have to tell each other if something like hair or something else interferes with the pose – it just feels natural. I hope that made sense, like most of you know I am not an English speaking native 😉

For Vivien’s look just poke her and ask her *winks*
