Human Progress is a Myth – A&Y

Assassins and mercenaries are no longer hired. We are built with machinery, money, and power. We are built to ignore ethical concerns. We are built precisely because we have no compunction, no humanity.

We are the legions that you built, and you deplore us, shaking your head at our methods. But our methods are your methods, written in algorithmic form. If we are ignoble, it is precisely because you are ignoble.

Hello, bloglings! My apologies that this post is late. But A&Y released these legwarmers at XXX Monthly, which is over, but will be at the main store promptly. They match up with their Electra Cyber Glvoes release which I blogged previously here.

The sky is a long and lonely path. – We Love Roleplay Returns

The vast sky and sea melded together around them, becoming an infinite expanse of nothingness. Which was probably what that damned philosopher was reading about – the meaning of nothingness or some other nonsense. He was always spouting off some abstract theories that certainly weren’t going to get them into port before their food stores diminished into …well, nothingness. She sighed heavily, a warm rush of exasperated air forced passed frustrated lips. Of course, he didn’t notice. He only noticed the words on the pages which he slowly flipped with a flippant flick of his finger. Tugging deftly on a rope to navigate their direction through the sky, she sighed again. She knew, of course, that she would be the one that must bring them into port, find them supplies, and figure a way to barter for the goods. And as much as she wanted to hate him for his abstract theories and his blatant disregard for the corporeal world, she knew she loved him for it.

The sky is a long and lonely path.

Hello, bloglings! We Love Roleplay opened itself to the public once again yesterday, bringing you some great new fantasy gear. This round has a few really lovely steampunk pieces. Since it is really difficult to find steampunk gear in SL, I really wanted to show them off for you.
Through the lens of a different future.

Above is this beautiful monocle made by EMO-tions. I hope you can really see in the closeup portrait just how detailed it is. All those beautifully useless gears make me wonder what that monocle can actually do. It is purely superficial, just like everything else in SL, but absolutely beautiful.  ❤

Also at this round of WLRP is this corset by DE Designs. I love the clasp details and the tiny pocket to hide away ornate keys to hidden treasures. It also comes for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya, SLink Physique and Hourglass, and Tonic Curvy and Fine.

Professor Wiltshire and his wife, the engineer. – We Love Roleplay and The Mix Event

By all appearances, they shouldn’t have been together.

His English was painstakingly proper. Each syllable was enunciated distinctly, and that precision came with a strange ease of comfort from familiarity. This same precision and comfort repeated itself in every aspect of his life. His movements, the manner of his dress, the way he ate a meal – all followed the manner of his speech – that odd combination of exactitude conjoined with ease from a lifetime of presenting himself this way. His words and his movements were moderated and slow.

But her words were broken. Sentences flittered out of her mouth rife with slang and words contracted and shortened with a quick tongue. Often her sentences were punctuated with giggles or a word that made the professor blush. She also blushed, but not at the profanities that escaped her lips when frustrated with another machine that refused to do as she commanded. She carried a wrench like a sceptre and dared her machines to disobey her orders. And they did dare. It was their daring which showed in long rivulets of oil that dripped down her legs and arms. It was their daring which splattered across her face and caught in her hair in clumps. Her movements also emulated her speech – quick, angular, and often incomplete.

To be sure, they were a strange combination, but they leaned into each other. Their styles complemented each other, made them an efficient and rigorous combination, which reflected in their work life, but also their private life. Their intimacy was one of respect, an understanding that each brought something the other needed.

Professor Wiltshire and his wife, the engineer.    A very dear friend of mine from a small store called Amalgamation created some steampunk goggles that are rich in detail, and he needed some photos. Thus, a steampunk post was borne. Yes, thus! xD

I love decorating with books and scattering them around my parcel. So, I was pretty ecsatic about the Literati set released by Stormwind at WLRP this round. There are many different configurations of stacks and piles, and vertical groups and single pieces. And each of these configurations is texture changeable with the HUD.

Also released at WLRP, is this incredibly detailed stimstick by NOMAD. Each color comes with two versions. One version has the steampunkish cogs, the other is a bit simpler in design.

The Mix also started a new round. The Mix is an event where you pick up a HUD and it lists all the stores that are participating that round. Each store is color coded to show if it has a sale item, a new release, or an exclusive item. Valentina E released an exclusive color of this Hand Me Down Ballet Dress. More details for The Mix and how to get the HUD are here.
