STORYLINE: Water lapped at the edges of the Piazza San Marco as the night sky softened to pinks and purples. A lone figure emerged from the shadows carrying a violin case and music stand. He was dressed in formal clothes from another time period. In any other city, he would have drawn stares however this was Venice. Wearing a mask was not considered odd either. As the man took off his cloak, and positioned his music stand, several locals quickly took up best sitting spots nearby. They knew to expect his exquisite concerts in the spring. And he did not disappoint. His music was so powerful, several women tried to discreetly wipe away their tears. Money began to fill his violin case. There were murmurs he was someone famous, but no one really knew. He didn’t talk much, just nodded and said thank you, He always took his earnings to the nuns at St. Mark’s Basilica and asked them to donate it for him to cancer research. The nuns knew to not ask questions, but surely his heartfelt music reflected a soul grieving the loss of someone dear.

2066: Geisha of Debtors Prison

STORYLINE: Rain fell gently into the rejuvenation pool. It was a special lubricant for the joints of androids, and cyborgs. His constant companions, Gertie 1 and 2 sighed joyfully. More accurately they were the jail-keepers of his personal hell. He would never get used to it, this artificial prison of a body he inhabited. It was one year ago, when he was given a choice: Die from his injuries in debtors’ prison, or willingly submit to full cyberization to work off his debts. What was his crime for such a horrendous sentence? He refused to pay the Cyber Mafia for a lost bet. The Deathmatch between BattleBot EVA and the vampire was obviously rigged. So he threw his scumbag loan shark into the display case for some silly ancient relic. And for that crime, he was turned from a bearded hard drinking gambler into the androgynous Gynoid Geisha no.10023. His only purpose was to please the twisted kinks of his master, Kujo, ringleader of the Cyber Mafia. Was it fair? Hell no. But the cops weren’t coming to save him either. He signed paperwork making the cyberization legal. Besides, he was just a brain lodged inside a very expensive polycarbonate body, literally the property of Kujo. What was left to save? He died. And the worst part was, (or was it the best part?), he felt less and less like the person he used to be. Was it true that a person’s identity was created by how people reacted to that person? He saw the world with new eyes, and not just because they were digital. People saw him with new eyes too. He didn’t hate it. …Still, he secretly wished Gertie would look away so he could kill the mean son-of-bitch who did this to him.

2065: Kujo of the Cyber Mafia

STORYLINE: High above the busy streets of Insilico, a man’s laughter rang out from the most plush penthouse of the city. Kujo, ringleader of the Cyber Mafia, was plugged into an expensive VR gaming rig. A silent android watched him in the otherwise empty room as he twisted and dodged attacks from some unseen enemy. “Hey, Gertie,” he yelled a little too loudly, like someone listening to loud music on headphones, “I haven’t had much fun since I was a little shit in the global games tourney.” The android nodded politely. “Superior technique, Master. No one will suspect the mighty EVA is actually piloted by a human.” The droid turned to look at the flickering security monitors from the mega overhyped death match: Battle Bot EVA vs a bona-fide Creature of the Night. No one thought the vampire would win, it looked like it was starved to death. The interest in the fight was remarkably high. It wasn’t everyday one saw a Nosferatu, since they were thought extinct long ago. She looked at the huge number of bets pouring in from the net. “Everything is proceeding exactly to plan. EVA is heavily favored to win.” Kujo laughed, “I think its time EVA stumbled, don’t you?” He faked a trip, and just like that, the EVA was ripped limp from limb. The vampire leapt into the screaming crowd and began feasting on them. Gertie shuddered at the carnage. A cornered and starving animal was horrifying to witness. Wait. Fights were breaking out all over the arena. “Master!” she pointed to the haloscreen of the VIP viewing boxes. They both saw it at the same moment, Kujo display of his prize possession, the priceless Yata no Kagami, was damaged in a brawl. Kujo quickly unhooked himself from the rig. Fury blazed in his cybernetically enhanced eyes, “Ready my copter, NOW!”

2065: Fall of the Eden

STORYLINE: From across the open spaceship hanger, he could see the anxious faces of the Eden Railroad waiting for him. They were Freedom Fighters sympathetic to his struggle. When the coast was clear, they gestured for him to quickly come. He took a deep breath, prayed, then raced across the hanger. “You there, stop!” A guard spotted him. Loud metallic clangs struck the metal grating around him. He zigged and zagged. Keep running! He was so close, just a few more….  Suddenly, a white hot blast of heat hit him from above. He felt weightless for a moment, then everything faded to black.  …As his conscious returned, the first thing he noticed was the roar of wind in his ears. His eyes snapped open. The giant city in the sky was growing smaller and smaller above him. All the events in his life which lead up to this fateful moment poured into his mind.  …His parents telling him to hide as the monstrous half-human super soldiers rounded up everyone in his village. His life on the streets as an orphan. The struggle to learn the strange technology of the “English.” His shock after an elderly couple took him in, and explained the truth of his situation. He was what they called an Eden, untouched by all cyberization or genetic manipulation. He was worth a thousand times his weight in gold. Why? Because millions around the world were afflicted with strange maladies. There were few living purely human gene pools left on Earth. His people, the Amish, had sworn off technology since the 18th century. Instead of spaceships, they had horse and buggy. The culture shock had been severe, but he had done his best to blend in. He lived in fear of being caught and dissected for his pristine DNA. As ground raced up to greet him, suddenly, his fall stopped. He felt a magnetic force around his waist. He was caught him in a tractor beam. Above him was the Ship of the Eden Railroad pockmarked with laser blasts, but still flyable. He was saved!

The Hamster’s Human Toys

STORYLINE: Grammy Hammy was excited. Tonight was her annual New Year’s Eve party and all the neighborhood pups were invited. Just in time for the festivities, the mail delivered intricately craved miniature New Years decorations. She bounced happily to her little bonsai display area and carefully added her new little treasures. There, she stepped back to admire her handiwork. It was just so adorable! Her specials guests would be so delighted! ….Well maybe not the pale humorless male who always complained bitterly about being picked-up (he even bit her once!), but the girl was always cheerful and enjoyed being cuddled. Oh! It was almost sunset. The pups better hurry or they will miss it!  It was only after the sunset on New Year Eve that the tiny Ninjas would become visible. They were strange looking creatures, the humans, tiny hairless apes, (and not all that attractive if you asked her), but they were always welcome in her home as honored guests. Why? Because they were tireless protectors of children. Each year she did her best to honor them and thank them for their service.

STORYLINE: Wind whistled through the bare branches of the frozen wasteland. It seemed to Yuri to be loneliest sound on Earth. The coldness bit into his skin. He pulled his coat closer. He shouldn’t linger here, there was something he needed to do. Just then, he heard the soft crunch of steps in the snow behind him. He spun around to see a shimmering vision of elegance emerging from the forest. He gasped. Was it a Yuki-Bidanshi come to lure him to a wintery death? The long mane of the specter whipped wildly in the wind. His heartbeat faster. He should run, there was somewhere he should be, but still he stood frozen completely mesmerized by the approaching vision of beauty and elegance before him. The Yuki-Bidanshi‘s eyes sparkled with mischief as it hovered in front of him and smiled. “Wake up, Sleeping Beauty. Lessons began half an hour ago.” Oh shit! Yuri bolted straight up out of bed and fell face first on the floor.

Shadow of the Reaper, 3

STORYLINE: Dr Oliver Conray shuffled into the dreary bedroom provided by his Grim taskmaster. In disgust, he tossed his scythe against the bed and sunk onto its faded surface. Dust wafted up and danced in pale light before his strange blacked-out eyes. Standing in the light by the window was the ghostly form of a refined lady. Her delicate voice broke the tense silence, “What happened my love?” He sighed. He didn’t want waste a single precious moment he had with his beloved over unpleasant matters. After all, he had paid a horrendous price for the privilege. But still, his heart ached for the life he left behind. “I killed my last living friend today.”

For you goth boys, I have some fun things to share. First, I experimented with mixed mesh bodies once more. The upper body is wearing Gabriel Body Belt shirt for TMP male, and the lower is actually Maitreya. Why? For the simple reason that I was able to rock this badass outfit by Moon Elixir thanks to this trick. Its on sale at the Fantasy Gacha. Paired with the shirt, it worked really well. My only complaint (besides heavy avatar render weight) is the foot size. Sadly the foot can not be scaled up.  The wonderful black oil tears are from this year’s Halloween offering by Tableau Vivant. Its one of the Mort Vivant faces for new skin Marcus. To go with the oily tears, I used the Cubic Cherry Loss eye and tears and tinted it black.  For the hands, is the Cursed Hand applier by Lovely Dissarray. In the background is the fun Hunter Scythe by Swagga. Oh and, one more thing… Did I also mention the *must have* bed for any self-respecting vampire in Secondlife? The Death Row Vampire Gothic Bed set. Worth every single L.
