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.

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.

I’ve got stories to tell. The most interesting could be yours.

I've got stories to tell.

I’m a little late, bloglings, but We ♥ RP is open! They have some lovely furniture stuffs this round by Zerkalo, aisling, and Ex Machina. The shelves by aisling and Ex Machina are beautifully detailed, and I love the clusters of candles from aisling. They come with different configurations so you can move them around at your whim (and I have many whims!).

Also! The Birdy sim is now open! We’ve waited forever and for our patience we have been given lovely group gifts. If you haven’t heard or you haven’t stopped by their sim, do it now. You may have missed some lovely items from different events and now you can pick them up. I picked up this beautiful top and skirt. I don’t know how I missed them before.

And, also, if you haven’t heard the new Lelutka sim is opened. Honestly, if you haven’t heard, I’m not sure where you’ve been. But you should come out from under that rock and go to their new sim because they have three lovely mesh heads available which are made to be compatible with the Maitreya body and for which you can buy appliers from Glam Affair! I’m just going to assume I can hear the *whoosh* of the teleport right now as you’re being whisked away to try demos and get your free gifts!
