Eternal Cycle

The dark seas churn off the barren shoreline; nothing but sand and rocks as far as the eye could see. This is a safe haven. Safe from the world. Safe from predators.
It moves stealthily, careful not to leave a trail in the sand. Nimble for it size and appearance, it easily carries its fresh catch toward the hidden lair that’s been home for centuries. Even the creature no longer knows how old it was, but remembered how it came to be. How they all came to be.
There were twelve of them at the time of creation. At first they banded to together to protect each other, but once humanity discovered them, they were worshipped by some, scoffed by others. What fools, mankind. One by one, the others disappeared, searching for peace and solitude. What good does escape do now that we are exposed. Even the heavens mock us from above. As long as the stars exist in the sky, we are immortal.
After one last look at the full moon, that which guides the very cycle of its life, the creature slips into its home. Claws easily snap through the thick body of the Great White shark that crossed its path in search for sustenance. There are only a few more days before the mighty Lion’s turn to reign. Soon the great Crab can rest again and allow the others to rule.
Foolish humans. Allowing their lives to be dictated by astrology.

 And again the amazing story comes from the incredible Anne Daumig! Check out her BLOG and FLICKR and don’t forget to slap that little stars *winks*

Thank you so much Anne ♥

Transformation

Transformation

He left me for dead in the back alley of London’s most desolate area.
His attack was brutal, ruthless. His hands steady; his blade true. He left me nothing that resembled the fairer sex. His hatred for women knew no boundaries. And when he was finished, he wiped his hands clean as he stared down upon me with bland indifference – a frog dissected.
Time changed after he left. Minutes felt like days. Pain gave way to a coldness that numbed me to the world beyond. Voices, wagons, hawkers – all faded away until the silence screamed in my ears. I prayed for Death to find me.
<scrape, thump> <scrape, thump> <scrape, thump> <scrape, thump>
The sound grew out of the darkness. What did Death sound like?
A shadowy figure hovered over me before large, powerful hands yanked me from the ground and I was thrown across a shoulder as if I were nothing more than a burlap bag filled with potatoes.
<scrape, thump> <scrape, thump> <scrape, thump> <scrape, thump>
The jarring gait matched the eerie sound. That was the last sound I heard before Morpheus dragged into the abyss.
Oh, what fresh Hell is this? I awaken to the taste of rancid gruel forced into my mouth. Only one eye will open and that takes all my strength to perform. A wooden pushed passed my lips and I gagged on the noxious porridge until the whole of my stomach emptied onto my makeshift bed.
Clumsy hands attempted to clean up the mess, but only seemed to spread it around. An angry shout and the familiar sound of uneven footsteps retreating from my side brought me back to my present situation. The rough blanket was snatched away and a violent shiver wracked my body.. I strained to raise my head and with my one eye I saw my both swathed in dirty and blood-stained bandages.
A man stood beside the bed; poked and prodded me with the same dispassion as my attacker. Cold, probing eyes watched me over wired spectacles perched at the tip of his thin nose. White, wiry hair stood out in all directions and thickly pursed lips hide behind a grizzly beard. What must pass for a doctor’s coat covered a wrinkled and ill-kept suit that once must have belonged to a gentleman of considerable wealth.
The uneven footsteps again approached and I got my first good look at my rescuer. Had I been able to move, I would have recoiled in fear and disgust. Had a gargoyle from high upon the Cathedral precipice come to life, it would hold more appeal than the freak approaching me. Hunched backed and dragging a clubbed foot,. its grotesque features distorted into a mask of pure horror. Yet, its eyes reflected … pity. Not for its own circumstances, but for ME!
Suddenly, I realized the man in the doctor’s coat was speaking to me. He explained how his assistance, Igor (the pathetic creature now gently covering me with a clean blanket) found me and carried me to the doctor’s laboratory. My mind spun and I heard only bits and pieces as he inventoried my injuries. Over 300 stitches. Missing eye. Amputated hand. Leg muscles and tendons severed. Lucky to be alive. Permission for procedures.
All i remember was grimly nodding my head in consent. What did it matter what this man did to me. The midnight attacker took my life. Now this doctor, Dr. Frankenstein, said he could fix me. What does it matter. I died in that alley.
Days dragged into weeks. Weeks dragged into months. As soon as my wounds healed, Dr. Frankenstein began his experiments. What did it matter what I looked like. No man would ever look at with anything but disgust in his eyes. The midnight attacker took away everything that made me a woman.
I would have gone mad; I should have gone mad, had it not been for Igor. Beneath that monstrous face and body was a pure and generous heart. Each day Igor would bring me a gift; a trinket of some sort. A wilted flower. Half empty bottle of perfume. A torn lace handkerchief. Items discarded by their owners were treasures in the creature’s eye. And each gift he presented earned him pained and weary smile from me.
Winter was in full force when I woke on my stomach after what Dr. Frankenstein claimed was the final procedure. No sheet covered me, but what did I have to be modest about now. I pushed myself up and startled when movement caught in my peripheral vision. For the first time in the eternity in this hellhole, I was presented with a mirror. Not a small looking glass, but a large, three-sided standing mirror one might find at a couturier’s shop.
I did not wish to look, but it seemed as though the Fate’s compelled me forward. The ever present bandages were gone and my naked flesh was exposed for all to see. What I saw reflected made Igor’s ugliness look like a work of art.
Skin once soft as satin and milky white was now ashen and covered with long, jagged scars. Once full and bountiful breasts were gone and only to be replaced with raw, burnt tissue covering my chest. My face … my perfect face, that once turned heads of men and women alike, was mangled beyond recognition.

Only one crystal blue eye stared back. The other hollow socket was covered with a mechanical piece with wires embedded into my head. Though the eye was missing, my vision was sharper and more intense than humanly possible.

When I reached out to touch the mirror in disbelief, I saw a mechanical claw resembling the talons of a bird of prey. I slashed out at my image and the razor-sharp tips left deep gouges on the mirrors surface. The other hand, while still flesh and blood, had similar claws embedded where fingernails once grew.
A sob escaped my lips when eyes traveled downward and I saw the devastation done to that most sacred of womanly places. Yes, the midnight attacker took great pleasure and care in that area. Nothing remained.
Farther down, the thigh of one leg and calf of another were replaced with metal rods and blood filled tubes and contained in some form of a clear, unbreakable casing. My head snapped up at a sudden movement from behind me. A pair of mighty wings spread out like an avenging angel sent from the heavens. Feathers black as night entwined with pistons and gears and glistening metal talons.
I did not hear Igor’s approach, but saw he stood beside the mirror. In his gnarled hands he carefully held the most beautiful gown I had ever seen in my life. A gown of such great wealth and quality a woman would sell her soul to possess it. His lips were twisted into what had to be a smile as he held out the gown to me as a gift.
But I am no longer a woman. I am no longer human. A shrill and blood-curdling screech tore from my throat as I snatched the dress from Igor and with a strength I did not know I possessed, ripped the gown to shreds. Soul sick and broken, I fall to my knees among the tattered remains of Igor’s gift and weep.
The passage of time again eluded me as I lay huddled on the floor before that mirror, the wings a protective encasement around me guarding me from harm. Only a pitiful, woeful sound made me raise my head.
There, crouched on the floor before me was Igor, tears flowing down his face and a large bundle clutched to his chest. He dropped his burden in front of me and quickly scurried back on his hands and knees like a bug caught in a sudden light.

Again, Igor brought me clothing, but this time far different from the Lady’s gown. This offering contained men’s trousers and jacket made from fine leather and boots to match. Seems when Igor stole, he stole only the highest quality goods.

The pants were snug and fit me like a second skin. The jacket, too, fit me perfectly and was even tailored to allow for the wings now permanently affixed to my back. The tall, thick boots provided warmth and protection.
And it seems Igor was not willing to allow me to forget I was once a woman, for he included a short velvet cape elaborately embroidered with gold thread.
I pulled what was left of my unevenly cut hair together into a bun and turned to the mirror for the last time. Anne was gone forever. Only this creature, the Dark Angel of Harper’s Ferry remained. And she was ready to hunt.
Beware, Jack the Ripper. I am coming for you!

I feel so gifted to be allowed to call Anne a close and dear friend. Today it was her coming to me when I was trying to run after all my duties. I didn’t say something, but she asked if all is fine. She does have that 6th sense I guess, that makes her feel, if I am just slightly sad, stressed or frustrated. Today she must have felt that I am a little stressed and he asked me if all would be ok. Basically everything was ok and I told her that Liam fine, but had to finish some pictures for a magazine, a blog post and the posting for the store – for that she as well wrote a wonderful story, just take a look at the previous post HERE – and today I wanted to reveal the first chapter of it (yes she made 3 chapters and they will come one after another *winks* ). Being such a sweetheart she always is, she asked me if she could help me. Since it was making pictures, I told her that I do not think I could ‘outsource’ any of my work. A little later I again thought about the amazing story she wrote me yesterday for my post and so I carefully asked her if she still would be in a writing mood. I really was a little shy as she already wrote all those amazing chapters for the store releases and that incredible amazing story for me yesterday. But she said she had the second half of her frozen custard, which made her so cuber awesome creative yesterday and she asked me what kind of story. I showed her my raw shots for the post and instead of asking when I need it or telling me she would not have time, she just asked “Did you have anything in mind while styling this?” That was the moment where I just could have hugged her super tight again. I told her about the basic idea I had for the pictures and she started writing. Again she saved my ass! I adore her creativity, her skills for making all those stories for me and as well for our store releases – Anne you are such sweet little diamond, thank you so much… again ♥

Wicca’s Originals @ Kinky Event // August 28th – September 23rd

Smoke curls around the room as the fat little man puffs away on the ebony and gold cigarette holder in his sweaty hands. His beady little eyes remain fastened on the long, shapely limb as she slowly pulls the thigh high boot up her leg.

Sitting at her dressing table, Nadia lifts her leg high until her toes are pointed to the ceiling. She takes her time smoothing the leather against her skin and carefully straightening the laces. Beads of sweat roll down the man’s face and Nadia secretly smiles.

Once the laces are tightened and the leather snugly caresses her legs, Nadia stands and bends over table to check her make-up; her legs spread and her ass in the air. Her reward is the sound of the pig choking on his own saliva.

The bowler hat is pulled down on her head at a jaunty angle as Nadia straightens and turns to her visitor. She places a booted foot on the chair between the man’s fat thighs. With puckered lips, she leans forward, only to give a hard push at the last moment to send the chair and man toppling backwards.

As the band begins to play her music, Nadia laughs as she struts toward the stage for her next performance.

That name – is yours!

Finally I have summer holidays and now I can focus on catching up blogging properly 😉

The last 2 school weeks with exams, this year the floods and certainly Covid adding up to the last school weeks stress, made it insanely awful – more than usual… I was so exhausted sometimes, that I just sat on my couch when I was done with RL work and fell asleep not even finishing my coffee. Who knows me .. knows as well I would NEVER waste a coffee… so you can go figure how that past weeks felt kinda.

Anyways, now I do have holidays and the fun can begin \o/

And it does begin with great news from Midnight Order and some of my favorite creators 😉

Midnight Order is done by Second Life Syndicate. They do put a lot of love and a hell of  work in their events to have the best designer of the grid creating for their themed events. I love their themes a lot as they are always something out of the box. With the Midnight Order they touch the dark fantasy and mystical souls and certainly that is something for me *winks*

Today I am coming to you with amazing news from cinphul. They created 2 amazing items for the Midnight Order event, the “council of flesh” dress and boots. A perfect set, even if you can purchase both separately. You will get a HUD with 7 different colors for the base texture as well as the freaking awesome claws all over the dress and boots – simply a must have for all those, who love the dark side or life or having fun in being creative for pictures and art!

Certainly I had to pair that incredible outfit with some other designs that just fit in the same mindset *grins wicked* So my tattoos for this special look must come from Nefekalum Tattoos. The  top one called “Archaic” and with its materials, the long sleeves and the amazingly ornamented chest perfectly matches that crazy look while the lower one called “Redemption” gives a nice accent instead of wearing stockings – I hate having ‘naked’ legs so that tattoo just was the perfect fit for me.

Last but not least… for an ‘insane’ look I needed my “Ziekling’s Tongue” from CerberusXing and the “Damned Ears from L’Emporio. I immensely enjoyed to create those pictures and it did remind me that I really should go for the ‘crazy’ looks more often again. For those who care about me – I am ok it just was fun I didn’t drift off to the dark side completely again… yet 😉

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.
