R.I.P.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on February 5, 2012 by Yasmin Heartsdale

Its been three years and a week since I began this blog.  During that time, I’ve generated 90 posts, not counting this one.  You people have come back to check on me, and read my entries a total of 25,446 times.  For those wondering, my own views are NOT counted.  I’m blown away by that number.  That means each post has averaged 283 views.

Sadly however, I have decided that this is the final blog entry.

I was recently informed by a VERY special person in my life that they will no longer be able to finance the ownership and running of our home sim, Yasminia.  I think it only fitting that this blog die with our home.

Given recent issues within my own RL, namely the slowly failing health of my mother, and the issues still in place between Valerie and I in SL, perhaps the sim’s closure is a blessing in disguise.

SL has been rather stale for me of late, as it seems to be for a lot of people.  Maybe this will force me to get back to basics.  To be a roaming wanderer, as I once was.  Maybe its my failing memory, but it seems to me everyone was a lot happier then.

Don’t get me wrong.  I will miss having a home.  A familiar shore to call our’s.  But I am stimulated by the prospects of finding new areas.  I’ve already begun searching for keywords I’ve not used in several years and am amazed at some of the exquisite sims that have cropped up.  There are some very creative people within SL.  Its a shame that most of these places are always empty.  Well, given my desire for solitude of late, perhaps it is not a shame.

To the girl that has carried our home for the last several years, I say do not be sad, do not cry over this.  Instead, rejoice, smile, and laugh at the wonderful memories we have of our home.

In closing, some pictures of the home we have made, for those that have visited.  If you never visited Yasminia, your loss.  Thanks for the memories.  Love, Yas.

Relocating

***Caution***  POTENTIAL DRAMA AHEAD – PROCEED WITH CAUTION

For those of you in my Family group, Yasmin’s Brat Pack, you recently saw a group notice advising that Yasminia would be relocating and leaving Mozingo Straits.  Several people have asked why the move and rather than try and summarize in a notecard in-world, or thru several group notices or even by way of word of mouth, I felt it best just to answer the inquiries here, and direct any future inquiries this way.

First, let me confirm that Yasminia is indeed relocating.  Even as I type this I look out at a completely emptied Mozingo Straits.  By this time tomorrow I will be the proud owner of a new sim.  It won’t be hard for our friends to find as the actual sim name shall be…Yasminia.  To the gracious individual that footed the expense to make the name change happen, I say thank you many many times over and cover your beautiful face in soft kisses.  *muah*

Now, as to why this change has taken place as several have asked that as well and yes, you do deserve an answer.

Recently, a confrontation occurred between a very dear friend of mine and my partner, Valerie.  This confrontation led to an exchange of some rather nasty words and the ultimate ending of the friendship between my friend and my partner.

I’ve long made every effort I can to steer clear of drama in-world and remain as neutral as I can when two people I love and adore come to a disagreement.  Nonetheless, other parties got involved and the situation escalated.  You will notice that with the exception of my partner I am trying to avoid naming names.

When one of the other parties contacted me to discuss the underlying incident I stated that I was trying to remain neutral in this matter and any issues were between the parties involved and my partner as I was friends with everyone involved.  It seems now that this was either not the correct stance for me to take, or my wish to remain neutral was misunderstood.

Of course anyone in Second Life is free to govern themselves as they see fit and carry out the response or holding of any grudge as they see fit.  Of course its fine with me if they do so.  Of course I will not get involved if I can avoid it.  Of course I *bend to their will* in this matter.  I.  Simply.  Am.  Avoiding.  Drama.  Under no circumstances does my lack of resistance mean there shall be a lack of response.

I am quite adept at responding.  My response in this case is to avoid drama, and protect my partner as well as the other parties involved, whom I still love dearly.  How do I do this?  Well, as Yasminia was, there was a very high chance that all of the parties involved would or could be within viewer distance or draw distance or even, chat range of one another.  I could not live with that knowledge.

So I chose to protect the other parties involved by taking steps to ensure that they will not be exposed to my partner who, if the rumor mill is correct, is a *freak with a death wish*.  In short, the relocation of Yasminia is for the safety of those I love and of course, the overall goodwill of my partner.  Whom I also love.

I’m just full of love.  : )

For those of you that are reading this and going, “Yeah yeah yeah….when does the sim re-open so I can use that device that pushes the long dildo in…..you get the picture…..”  Give me two, maybe three weeks and I should have the new place terraformed and built up to snuff.  Now is the time to drop me an IM if you have a wish or suggestion for a device or general sim theme.

If anyone was really in love with the old Yasminia, Mozingo Straits should be for sale in the near future, if its not already.  Be forewarned…I noticed Linden Labs already re-classified the sim with a PG rating.  I doubt this will appeal to many of you as you all know, a PG sim has several rules that apply to the landowner and occupants….as well as any neighbors.

*Blows soft kissy kisses and num nums!*

Anyone…..

Furniture and more

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on December 10, 2010 by Yasmin Heartsdale

I suppose when its been too long since I’ve posted, a surefire way to entice me to write and bring some things up to date is to provide me with anything that may generate a laugh.  This may not cause most of you to even grin, but it sure as hell got me to giggle.  Many thanks to Jenny Maurer.

Its fucking fine y'all!

Can you just see the commercial?  Dio in a cheap suit with a nude girl leashed and kneeling beside her.  “Y’all get on down here to Dio’s.  Our furniture is fucking fine!”

Anyway, on to some other topics that are long overdue.  The island is once again open to the public.  I think this may be the final renovation for a long time as it seems to be generating the most compliments.  I am slowly introducing various devices and traps and promise to try and rotate in several favorites.  As usual, if anyone has a request for a particular piece, feel free to provide that to me in-world.

I want to say thank you again to Jill Ormstein for donating the entire line of DoD devices to be used at the island.  Several are currently out for display and more will be added as I rotate items in and out.  Its a simple formula, if I see an item being used on a regular basis, it stays.  If not, it goes.

Of course, in real life its the holiday season and of course, its beginning to cost a lot like Christmas.  I mean this monetarily, as well as time commitments.  Whatever holiday you celebrate or faith you worship this time of year, I would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season and peace on earth.

We continue to get updates on Rabea, who’s kept away from Second Life for health reasons.  Our thoughts are with her and we wish her the best.

Its also been a while since we’ve seen Anna, but understand from her bratty comments its not health related.  Love you Anna!

Valerie has also been on a short sabbatical recently as the result of technical issues on her end with regards to her equipment and power supplies.  Miss you Love!!!!  I hope to see you soon.

One more item I want to address and that is to say thank you to each and every person that has taken the time to click on this blog and read about my SL experience, my life in SL, my Family and those I love.  According to my stats checker, we are approaching 20,000 views of this page.  We’re currently at 19, 502.  I am simply blown away that so many of you have kept up with the Brat Pack in this way.  In hindsight, I guess I shouldn’t be, as so many of you continue to visit Yasminia and support us there.

Defining Limits

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on October 4, 2010 by Yasmin Heartsdale

Okay, there was a tiff in Yasminia yesterday while I was not online and I’m a little at odds as to how to best address it so I thought I’d run the scenario by you readers and invite any feedback.

Keep in mind this is my understanding of the tiff as relayed to me by two of the people involved, as well as a witness that showed up part way through and got details from all three parties involved.

I recently branded one of my Brats, Alexx.  After being branded, Alexx had requested I lock her up for a decent amount of time so she could relish the branding.  For those familiar with Yasminia, there is an island in the SE corner that holds a giant anchor with a leash point and a campfire.  I leashed Alexx there.

As hoped for and expected, Alexx entertained many visitors during her time there, as she is a fairly popular member of my Family.  One of the visitors has some *history* with Alexx stemming from light hearted banter and teasing.  This visitor is a male and for the sake of this story, we’ll call him Joe.

Joe happened upon Alexx in her restrained and helpless state and given their *history*, began to torment her.  Nothing out of line as I understand it and nothing unwelcomed by Alexx.

While this torment was already in progress, a female friend of Alexx happened upon the scene.  Again to protect the combatants, we’ll call this female visitor Missy.  Seeing Alexx trying to escape Joe’s torment, Missy apparently emoted picking up a log from the campfire and sticking it into Joe’s genitals, or striking him in the balls, I’m a bit fuzzy on this issue, but it seems apparent that contact was initiated by Missy with respect to Joe’s dick.

For sake of comprehension, Missy’s profile contains the following limits;

No AgePlay, or Bodily Wastes, No RL introduction into RP, no Gor, prefer no death. Prefer Woman, shemales, herms. no Men.

Personally I’ve always felt listing “No Men” was a bit too vague. No men doing what? Fucking you? Talking to you? Buying you shoes? Building the sims you play in? But anyhoo, those are Missy’s limits.

For further clarification, Joe’s profile lists the following limits;

Intolerance, racism, stupidity, drama, griefing, harrassment. Good luck avoiding any of those items in Second Life.

Now what apparently sparked the tiff was after Missy interjected herself into the roleplay and stuck a burning log onto Joe’s dick, he apparently replied by using a remote to grab Missy’s relay. At that time Missy safeworded out and began an OOC discussion, the details of which are still lost to me at this point. Mind you, Joe grabbed her relay, nothing more. At no time was Missy stripped, restrained or placed into a sexual scenario.

I guess my opinion is that if one has a limit against men, then one shouldn’t initiate interaction with men, especially while wearing a live relay. Both combatants have sworn not to enter my sim again, Missy out of fear that we harbor men that don’t respect limits and Joe out of fear that we will harbor women that interfere with ongoing roleplay. Okay, we all agree that Joe is a smartass. What man minds when a woman jumps into an ongoing scene? Well, so long as burning logs aren’t placed against their genitalia.

I’m just a bit at a loss as Missy in this case went ahead and unfriended me prior to me coming back online to even find out about this incident, much less talk to her about it. To me, it seems common sense. If men are your limit, don’t do anything that resembles play with men.

Is there some change in the air where this type of interaction with an expectation of no response from the man is commonplace? Just curious as to others’ thoughts. Comment if you have an opinion.

Time to catch up…as well as ramble

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on August 10, 2010 by Yasmin Heartsdale

I know, I know, its been almost two months without a blog.  There are soooo many things to catch up on, and yet, so much remains the same.

I know many of you hate to dwell on RL while in-world, but several of you know the story behind some of my recent RL drama, so I’ll bring it up to date here.  Yes, I am still getting divorced.  No, its not final.  I live in Texas.  We execute death row prisoners faster than we finalize divorces.

Despite my RL distractions and being unable to devote as much time as I normally due to SL, my Family continues to thrive.  I am so proud of each and every one of them, there is simply not enough room on this blog to say how much they each mean to me.

Since they don’t get enough press, I will talk about the current slaves.  Several seem to have gone missing.  I am unsure if it is my lack of time in SL, or they have RL themselves.  So, Tuppy, Raven, Nicola and Slave, if you read this, I hope you are doing well and get back when you can.  If possible, post here so we know you’re still doing well.  Mariska, Alexx and JG continue to bring enormous pleasure, not just to me, but to the rest of the Family as well.

If you’re one that also follows the picks portion of my profile, you’ll notice that I am no longer owned by Claire.  There were some other issues that I won’t go into but needless to say, it seems we’re better off as friends.  I am convinced that when it comes to exploring my own submission in SL, I am simply not one to be owned.  That’s not to say there isn’t another Domme currently making a very strong case, but time will tell.

Our sim, while the numbers aren’t high enough to put us on the map, does still attract a friendly crowd and lots of generous support.  again, while there is not enough room to print everyone that supports us and shows us love, there are two I want to mention real quick.

Amalia Illios.  A frequent visitor, a Family friend, a dear friend of mine and just an overall sweet person to know.  If you’re friends with Lia, then you know what I’m talking about.  I can’t thank you enough Lia.  Your continued support of us melts my heart in ways I can’t fully state.  *kiss*

Miika Forager.  I never posted it officially, but somewhere over the past few months Miika crossed over from Family friend to Family.  She even honors me from time to time by wearing the title, Yasmin’s  Sentinel.  Miika supports all of us with her presence and counsel on an almost daily basis.  Thank you Miika, for being you.  *kiss*

Time to interject with some art…

Just hanging around...

I captured this lovely girl today while exploring some newer RLV capture sims.  After some tormenting and using her body for my own perverse pleasures, I hung her on the rack from the roof of our castle.  Funny thing, at the start of our session, I hid the timers in her shackles.  When I hung her at the end of our session, I left her keys, but never_set_any_timers.  I wonder how long she’ll hang there before she realizes she is free to go?  So far its been an hour.  She goes another hour I win $100L.  Hang in there girl!

One last ramble before I end this post and get back in-world.  Some people recently have commented that, despite my RL issues, I seem more light hearted in SL, as if I am having more fun.  To be honest, I am.  My partner, Valerie, and I, recently had a groundbreaking conversation, groundbreaking in the sense that it covered topics we’ve never discussed even in the eight years we’ve known each other, and we both now have a better and I’ll say more meaningful understanding of one another and as such, an even closer relationship.

This understanding, needless to say, has removed a lot of tension I felt while in SL of late.  In fact, its made me much more at ease in RL as well.  Thank you Valerie my Love.  I’d be lost without you.

Okay, that’s it, that’s all, at least for now.  If I missed anything that you, the specific reader reading these words, RIGHT now, feels I should have touched on, I am sorry.  Drop me a note in-world and I will also hang you from our ramparts and post your picture in my next blog.  Course….no guarantee you won’t have a timer….Just sayin’!

Twice the Pleasure

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on April 23, 2010 by Yasmin Heartsdale

The lock on the capsule beeped as it unlocked and the darkened glass door slid open.  The bound and gagged girl inside looked up, blinking at the sudden brightness, seeing a shadowy figure standing over her.

The girl is motioned out, so she slowly and steadily crawls on her knees out of the confining capsule.  Her restraints are systematically unlocked and she is helped to her feet.  The gag is then carefully removed from her mouth.  As she stretches her jaws and tries to speak, a thin collar is placed around her neck, and locked.  On the collar is engraved, “Yasmin’s Concubine”.

Thus, Yar was inducted into the Brat Pack.

Now, those of you close to us know this is no longer Yar’s title.  Those of you even closer know Yar’s collaring was anything BUT this simple.

The road to collaring Yar was bumpy indeed, perhaps to give me warning as to how bumpy our relationship would be, particularly that first year.  However, it is my experience that anything worth having is worth working for.

Since that time, Yar has grown extremely close to me.  She is my right hand.  An ironic term for those of you from my owned submissive past.  Truth is, Yasminia, Caer Heartsdale, my Second Life, all of these things exist in large part due to Yar’s persistence and dare I say it, loving stubbornness.

Simply put, my Family is a cherished artwork of mosiac pieced together firmly and nicely.  Yar is the grout that holds the artwork together.

I’ve often said, if anyone desires to know and understand submission, they need only follow Yar for a week.  That still holds true.

Yar, I am humbled to be your owner, honored to be your Goddess, and most of all, happy to be your friend.  I hope we have another two years together.

I love you.  Happy Two Year Anniversary!

Re-Opening

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on March 15, 2010 by Yasmin Heartsdale

The new island(s) are done.  Once again, many many many many thanks go to Tania Owatatsumi and Dei Quan.  Tania did an excellent job on the terrain and shape of our islands and Dei made a lovely welcoming lighthouse and bridge.  Truly good friends to have.

As requested by Anna on the prior post, here are some pictures of our new home.

We are still in the process of placing some toys and devices.  I’m making a better effort to focus on quality this time around, not quantity.  I’ve also incorporated a few more cuddle spots around the main fortress.

Speaking of the fortress, I have decided to name it Caer Heartsdale, or “Home of Heartsdale”.

For those of you that visited for the purposes of relaxing and chatting on our deck, we have moved this area to the top terrace of the castle, east side.  A couple of people have observed that this is close to the chat range of the private bedrooms, part of the main floor and part of the dungeon.  However, feedback from the majority tells me this was the right move to make.  Seems people do like a castle and patio close together.  Who knew?

Anyhoo, this is the new Yasminia.  We are officially re-opened.  Stop by.  Relax.  Enjoy.

Love,

Yasmin and her Brats

Remodeling

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on March 11, 2010 by Yasmin Heartsdale

Just an FYI, our sim, Yasminia, is currently undergoing a major overhaul and remodeling.  Please excuse the mess if you visit it this week.

A word from Valerie

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on January 31, 2010 by Yasmin Heartsdale

As my blog is open to all of my Family to express their opinion, Valerie has asked for me to publish the following.  I think, to summarize, what Valerie is saying is for those people that come to Yasminia solely for the chance to play with me and find me already engaged with another person, please remember that any of my Brats are open to play and can usually hold their own in a Domme role.

I once swore I’d never write a blog of any sorts, and here I am, doing it anyway.  Not by request of Goddess or others, but because there is something that occured to me lately and I’d like to take a moment to sit and dwell on it.

Today I want to talk about the behavior of certain people over the last few months without calling any names.  To whom it may concern, you know who you are.

As most of you are aware, during the last few weeks Goddess has been absent a lot from the sim or SL in general due to personal issues.  Now she is back better than ever and spends a lot of time on Yasminia again, which has lead me to a somewhat worrying observation.  While our sim lay waste and barren for the last few months, all of a sudden people who haven’t shown up in some time come by again.  And you may have guessed it: the timeframe they did not come to our sim or came and left instantly again is almost coherent with Goddess’ absence.  Coincidence?  Maybe, though I doubt it.

It rather is part of a disturbing behavior I have witnessed around Goddess ever since I joined her in SL.  People come on to see if she is available, and when she is not, leave again, some even just log off again.  This may seem flattering on the first glance, but it is anything but that.  True, it speaks for Goddess’ qualities to captivate people, but those people either do not realize what a strain it can put on her, or anyone confronted with that type of behavior, or they do it deliberately on purpose.  It seems to imply “Either I get time with you or I won’t log on at all.”  Now, those of you who know Goddess know that the fun of others is one of her main concern.  And I find it not only highly anti-social of those individuals to behave like that but it downright borders on blackmail.

Now, don’t get me wrong.  It’s perfectly normal to want to spend time with her more than with others.  But some people seem to forget she has a family and other obligations as well.  They seem to think Goddess’ SL has to center around them as much as their’s centers around her.  And they try to enforce this by following her around and trying to make her feel bad by the aforementioned behavior when she can’t devote time to them.  Such a fixation is unhealthy for both sides, I’ve been there myself.  Why not instead try to get to know those around her better?  Like, maybe, her family?  The Brat Pack? Doesn’t ring a bell to some of you?  It’s that bunch of sexy girls on the sim that wear a “Yasmin’s” tag above their heads.  Sure, we might not be Goddess herself, but we sure are fun to hang with anyway and most of us can hold our own in a conversation or play.  It saddens me that some people simply ignore the rest of the family, like we are not considered worthy of interaction without Goddess around.  Or worse, even when she is around.  Frankly, I don’t hold much regard for those people.  When Goddess is in the sim they lurk around, waiting for a chance to steal some of her time, but when she is not, they don’t even drop by to say hello to her family.  Rude, impolite and anti-social.

Before this turns into one of my usual rants though, I’d rather like to ask those people to reconsider their approach and behavior.  If anything SL gives us is most fun of all, it’s meeting new people, getting to know them and realizing what wonderful persons they are.  So, maybe next time you come to the sim and see Goddess is not around, don’t just leave, approach others who are there, say hello, introduce yourself, see if you find other nice company there.  If you really want to be considered her friend, you better take your time to get to know her family as well.  You would not only make it easier on Goddess to spend time with you without it feeling forced, you may also find that she chose her girls wisely and her family is as much fun to be around as she is even when she is not there.
