and you want to live forever in the lights you make

"Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings."
~Anaïs Nin
Always good to note. And sometimes love doesn't die, but the flame gutters, and we grow unsure, forgetful, or confused. For small reasons or large, love doesn't conquer all; love doesn't heal everything. It's not the magic cure-all that we dream it is when we're young.

But it's a damned sight better than the alternative, always.

From a friend who's in the Mesmerize Dungeon group, this joyful little blurb from Katrinas Rexie:
=====================================================================
I AM A PLAYER, NOT A BOT -- GREAT GREAT BED, CUDDLE AND SEX, SLAP IT NOW SO WE CAN GET IT!!! -- target 50 only,
powerhouse bed, gorean and modern, 129 poses, threesomes, bath, shower,
selling for 3000 In the store, mm board Kink (184,246,24) ,
see and try it here Kink (184,246,24)
==============================+++++++============================++====

He said to me after, I love that they go "I'm a player! not a Bot!" Yeah, me too. Like the mere stating of that irrelevant fact should be enough to think Oh, well, she's a PLAYER, she's not just spamming for no reason in the wrong group--

In perusing her profile, I learn two things. First, that she is far more than one year old on the grid, so she is far too old to be pulling this nonsense. Not only that, but at 400+ days on the grid, you should know how to make a SLUrl already, and she obviously doesn't--or doesn't care to, one or the other.

The second thing I learn is this lovely little passage (also serving as her only bio):
This kitty is Owned and Protected by Grand Empress Erie Waffle.
If you have any problems with this kitty, please address them to her.
Well. I know I'm contemplating sending the "Grand Empress" a notecard. Anyone else wish to?

Miss Iris Ophelia is unhappy with the options in DC Universe. To be more blunt, she'd like less back strain, please, as well as wondering if female superheroes always come with superboobs. (Maybe they're anti-gravity enabled.)

To be fair, this is also a failing in comics in general--take the X-Men's Storm, for instance. Prior to fulfilling her "full genetic potential" in the Genosha mind-control labs, she had a relatively slim physique. After that? She had to have several costume redesigns, each one geared to revealing more and more of that "full genetic potential".

So, partially it's that desire to get the guys in, who will make female characters that are maximized eye candy to play. And partially it's to give the guys who play guys something to look at, by maximizing the amount of eye candy each female offers. It sort of makes sense...but I get why Miss Ophelia's a bit irked by the concept.
"I sometimes think that people's hearts are like deep wells. Nobody knows what's at the bottom. All you can do is imagine by what comes floating to the surface every once in a while."
~Haruki Murakami
Pretty much. And sometimes, what floats to the surface is largely misinterpreted. You have to practice learning what you see. And some folks learn to fish
"We do not remember days, we remember moments."
~Cesare Pavese
May your moments be bright, and memorable for joyful, not painful reasons. Keep each one as a spark against the darkness.
