Finding Harmony on the Fringe of Lunacy

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on January 30, 2009 by Yasmin Heartsdale

My first month of SL was perhaps the fastest ride I’ve been on since joining SL, as I suspect it is with many residents.  There’s the rush to gobble up as much information on how to survive and co-exist in SL as well as the simple hunger for exploration.

As Merl was also fairly newer to SL, just a month older than myself, we did a lot of the exploration together.  Being Neko, Merl was naturally inquisitive, so the exploration took us to a lot of unexpected delights.  As we both were, and still are, quite kinky, there were also some *expected* delights.

During this period, Merl also introduced me to a handful of, shall we say, like minded individuals.  Most of these people came and went, being fairly new to SL themselves and wanting to also explore their own boundaries.  Two of these individuals stand out quite clearly and need mentioning.

The first is Octavius, or Oct as she is called.  Oct may very well be the sexiest Neko I have met in SL, bar none.  Certainly nobody can emote or roleplay a better kiss.  By the time Oct’s lips touch your’s, you’ve already lost your soul to her.

Aside from her raw sex appeal, Oct is just downright likeable.  If SL were a high school, Oct would be voted “Most Friendly”.  I honestly cannot remember Oct ever saying a bad word against a soul, living or otherwise, much less a fellow resident.

The second person that warrants mentioning, naturally, was my first partner in SL, Edi Lunasea aka the Queen of Bad Puns.  Its only appropriate that Edi’s last name sounds like lunacy.  She may very well have the craziest sense of humor and roleplay style that I have ever seen in this type of medium.

I swore early on I would not take an SL partner, to avoid limiting myself in my personal “exploration” of some of the things SL had to offer.  Being one of the single most polyamorous women in SL, this was a ridiculous notion.

Part of me wonders if Merl introduced me to Edi to test my resolve.  Regardless of any intent, within minutes of meeting “the Queen”, I was hooked.  After what I can only describe as a torrid love affair, Edi and I partnered.

Now during this time, the four of us, Merl, Edi, Oct and myself, frequented a sim that was Egyptian in decor, but with a lot of entertaining activities and devices scattered thoughout.  At the center of the building we frequented, was a tall column, roughly 100 meters up, that had a waterfall flowing down around it into a large bath/pool area.  I apologize now for any details that may be fuzzy as this was quite some time ago and prior to my love of taking photos.  Furthermore, when you explore with Merl, Edi and Oct, you’re bound to be *very* distracted.

Early on in our relationship, when Merl or Oct left or we were left alone, Edi and I took to flying to the top of this column, which was then open to the top of the building, and then using flight assist to fly well out of range of anyone passing by or exploring away from the crowds.

We soon came to call the height to which we flew our “Point of Harmony”.  Many an hour was spent there, watching the sun rise, set, rise again…

I could IM Edi if I was having a stressful RL moment and she would say, “Yas, meet me at Harmony” and we both knew where to go.  My only regret is that there was no poseball for us to embrace, but we came quite adept at “hovering” at the same height, as if we were.

Some of the richest discussions I have had in SL came at Harmony.  Edi is one of the lucky few in SL to have figured out exactly how, why and for what SL is to be used.  Edi has the ability to take any negativity, SL or RL, wrap her sense of humor around it, pour in a strong amount of compassion and understanding, and serve you with a delicious dish of love so sweet, you can hardly stand it.

Even at the time in my SL experience when I was Idoru’s Huntress (I promise, a lot more on this timeframe in later posts) I still spent a lot of time with Edi.  I cannot thank Idoru enough for allowing me this freedom following my submission to her.

Sadly, Edi’s RL soon grew to a point where it intervened and cut into our time together.  After some heart breaking discussions, we both decided to dissolve the union, but remain very close friends.  About once a month, I’ll get an IM or a brief visit from Edi, and am instantly cheered up, regardless of my mood at the time of her IM.

The sim where we played, loved, laughed and grew is long gone, but the sense of Harmony remains.  There is of course a lot more to Edi than is detailed in this blog entry, but I’ll keep that to myself.  Some memories are best kept and not shared.

I love you my Queen.  Always.

But you are one nutty chick.  : )
