I'm a native Californian, who also resides in the virtual world of Second Life. Online, I'm a cybernetic snow leopardess. Offline, I'm from Generation X, so I've had many cycles around the sun.

GEN:LOCK

Just finished watching the first season of RoosterTeeth‘s newest series, GEN:LOCK. It is a new animated series starring Michael B. Jordon (Creed, Black Panther), David Tennant (Doctor Who), Dakota Fanning (War of the Worlds, I am Sam), Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) and more. It was an absolutely amazing series, and I’m totally excited for season 2.

I had heard about Red vs. Blue, but it wasn’t until RoosterTeeth released RWBY that I really discovered RoosterTeeth. I fell in love with RWBY immediately, and it quickly became one of my favorite shows. I had to become a FIRST member, just so I could watch RWBY every Saturday, without delay. Then, when the episodes were compiled as a movie, I had to get the movie for myself. I even regularly listen to the RWBY soundtracks.

GEN:LOCK is now ranked up there with RWBY for me, and when it is compiled as a movie, which I’m hoping it is, I will get that as well. Where RWBY falls more onto the fantasy with technology side, GEN:LOCK falls squarely in the science fiction. Earth of the future is being overrun by a powerful nation-state known only as “Union.” Not much is known about them, except they are evil and very technologically advanced. I guess they’d be kind of like the Nazi’s of the future.

Dr. Rufus Weller (David Tennant), is the scientist who helped to invent the GEN:LOCK program, a way of linking specific minds into giant mechs used to fight against the Union. The GEN:LOCK team is led by Julian Chase (Michael B. Jordan), who was the first candidate to successfully achieve GEN:LOCK.

This first season is the setup season, of course. Union is seen as this unbeatable force, and all that can be done is to hold the line. New recruits for the GEN:LOCK program are brought to a top secret military facility to learn how to pilot their mechs and work together as a team. A familiar tale, but one that is told in a very surprising and exciting way.

The animation is excellent. I would consider it up there with the big budget animation studios. The story itself was engaging and very fulfilling. There were a few surprises that I didn’t see coming, which is always a good thing. Soundtrack was amazing, and the theme song really captured the mood of the series. The acting was also superb, but not all that surprising, considering the talent that was acquired for the series.

All episodes of GEN:LOCK are airing for free on RoosterTeeth’s web site, with the season finale becoming free next weekend. If you haven’t seen it yet, go there and see for yourself. While you’re there, check out RWBY. All six seasons are streaming for free. Of course, there’s a lot more to RoosterTeeth than just GEN:LOCK and RWBY, so check them out and consider supporting them by becoming a FIRST member.

GEN:LOCK Season 1:

Personality Coloration

I have mentioned it before, but there are differences between how I am online, versus how I am offline. I consider my online identity closer to my true self, while the offline identity is more the self I have to be from day-to-day. I’m no psychiatrist, so I have no idea what that means, it’s just something I’ve come to accept over time.

Now, I’ve recently been exposed to another personality test, very similar to ones I’ve taken in the past. This one is based on colors, and offers just as valuable insight into who I am as the other ones that I’ve taken. Like any of the other personality tests, it just helps me understand myself better, and, hopefully, give me insight into understanding others more.

True Colors is the name of the personality assessment. I went through a series of ten questions plus looking at what colors meant, and rated them to what sounded most like me, and what sounded least like me. At first, I did this based on my offline self, as it was a requirement to do there. Later, I decided to retake it based on what I consider to be my online self.

  • Offline Self = Gold/Green, Blue, Orange
  • Online Self = Blue, Green, Gold, Orange

For my offline self, gold and green were almost equal, with gold just slightly higher than my green. My online self, on the other hand, seemed to have a much stronger blue score than green. While the numbers aren’t being shown here, I can say that both green and orange for both offline and online were almost the same. What do these colors mean, though? The following is taken from the True Color web site.

Orange: Energetic, spontaneous, and charming. If you’re an Orange, you tend to be action-oriented and are comfortable taking risks. You probably also tend to be competitive and seek out adventures with opportunities to push the boundaries. Living in the moment and enjoying an adaptable time schedule are important to you.

Gold: Punctual, organized, and precise. “Golds” tend to need structure and organization. If you’re a Gold, then order, rules, respect, and dependability are important to you. Time is a key part of your life if you’re a Gold personality type. You need to be on time and want others to be punctual as well. Following the plan or schedule is best for you.

Green: Analytical, intuitive, and visionary. These are traits of the Green Personality type. “Greens” find innovative thinking and problem solving exciting. If you’re a Green, you tend to be able to see the big picture and able to effectively analyze situations. Thinking outside the box is a real strength. You also have an extreme need to be right.

Blue: Empathetic, compassionate, and cooperative. “Blues” tend to be very social people. If you’re a Blue, you value relationships and harmony. Genuine kindness, sincerity, and compassion are important to you. You enjoy opportunities to work with others and collaborate and any opportunity to develop a connection.

So, I’m not the outgoing, energetic, spontaneous and charming orange. Considering it was almost the lowest possible score, it is the least like me no matter how I look at it. The analytical, intuitive, visionary green is consistent for me as well. It is the punctual, organized and precise gold that is swapped with the empathetic, passionate and cooperative blue. What becomes even more interesting is when I take an average of the numbers, blue, green and gold are almost identical in value.

Ok, what does this all mean? I’m sure you can look at this blog post, as well as others written in the past, and pretty much shout “GREEN!” I do think that the core me is that analytical type, that always wants to know who, what, when, where, why and how. This blog post alone is a clear demonstration of that. This blog post even shows the precision and organization of the gold. The blue and the gold are both part of who I am, as I see aspects of both when I’m online and offline. So, if I had to summarize my true self from all of this, I would probably say that I’m Green, Gold, Blue, Orange, with gold and blue switching depending on the audience and environment. Being honest with myself as well, I would have to say, despite how the score fell for my online persona, I think even that probably still falls stronger to the gold side than the blue.

Site Updates and Kitties Going Tweet, Tweet, Tweet

I have finally formatted the blog to be a little easier to read. I have previously combined by various blogger sites into this one site. Instead of being separated by separate blogs, they are now separated by categories. This will hopefully make things a little easier for me. Of course, due to my general lack of time, who knows how often I will be updating again.

Of course, with the updates, I decided to embed by Twitter account. Yes, I have one, and as you can tell, the only thing it was really used for was posting screen shots from when I played Lightning Returns 5 years ago. So, maybe now, I might decide to join with the rest of the world and tweet like a snow canary. Who knows what the future holds? I know I sure don’t.

Darkwolf Lounge is now Stray Cat Lounge

Back when I first decided I wanted my own club, I decided to name it Stray Catz Club. I had bought things for the club, set it up, but never officially launched it. Every place I moved after that, I brought Stray Catz with me, with new appearances for each location it moved to. I never had any DJs for it, and I didn’t know how to stream music, so I never really got it off the ground.

I did have periodic events for friends and family, but there was no DJ for it, just dancing to whatever stream we decided to play. Only one time did we have a live performer as a special event for my birthday. Aside from that, it was just friends getting together to dance and have a good time.

Then, in June of 2016, I started looking into becoming a DJ myself, and trying to get my club going again. My wife and Mistress, Lola Darkwolf, gave me the extra kick I needed to get things going, and I rebuilt Stray Catz as Darkwolf Lounge. I started small on my sim, with a handful of regulars. There were times it was empty and times that we were nearly to capacity. No matter what the crowd size, it was always fun to do my Saturday afternoon sets.

It wasn’t until moving to Chi Tau City that things really began to pick up for the club. I tried to keep the atmosphere mostly the same as I wanted back when I first thought of having a club, but being located on a sim devoted to sex, there were bound to be some significant changes along the way.

Unfortunately, one of those changes was the breakup of myself and Lola. While we are still friends, there is some discomfort there with the association of Darkwolf to a sim as heavily focused on sex as it is. So, it was decided to return the club back to a variation of its original name. This time, it is known as Stray Cat Lounge.

It isn’t easy to change everything, as we would want to get the membership of the group switched over, so we are still making announcements in both groups, and hoping to transition people over over time. It is a disappointment to have to do it, but at the same time, returning to the Stray Cat name does seem like a good idea overall.

A New Beginning

So, last week, I wrote about the breakup with Lola Wolf. It was a very difficult and painful decision, and both of us were hurt. We both knew it was the right decision, though. Now, we aren’t looking at it as a breakup, but simply a change in the status of our relationship. No longer Mistress/sub/wives, but best friends. I’m so glad that the friendship is still there and strong. We will still spend time together when we see each other, and still keep in touch through email. The breakup was a terrible thing, but in the end, it all worked out for the better. So, now instead of the end, it is a new beginning, with a renewed friendship, and we’re both happy.

This is the End

On March 16, 2015, I met Lola Wolf for the first time. We connected quickly and on March 19, I accepted her collar. We were married on June 6, 2015. Today, it has ended, and we’re both broken over it.

Before January of last year, she and I were able to see each other almost every day, even if it was just an hour a day. Then I moved and got a new job, and everything got turned upside down. Our time difference made it very difficult for us to be together, but we did everything we could to make it work. Unfortunately, everything we tried didn’t work. Not for lack of trying, not for lack of love for each other. It just proved to be too much. So, I made the very difficult decision to end things.

I hated doing it. I felt terrible. I was hurting, and I knew she was hurt by it too. I frequently told her “Always and Forever” and I meant it. I still do love her, more than I could express, and never wanted to end things. That’s why I tried so hard to make things work, but I don’t think it was fair to either of us. I don’t know if I was right or wrong to make that call, but the call was made. It is over now, but despite that, I will never stop loving her.

I love you, Mistress Lola Wolf, always and forever.

 

Alora Parthena – Cum Slut City (RP)

Character Bio: Cum Slut City RP

Alora Parthena
Female Human Priestess/Acolyte
Chi Tau Sororitry Caretaker
Apparent Age: 18

Abilities:
Advanced Healing and Longevity: Through her connection with the magic of the land, and the gift of the old gods, Alora was gifted with advanced healing and regeneration abilities to the point where her aging process has completely stopped. Even if she were to be killed, as long as she remains in the city, she will return to life a short time later.

Escape: Alora has the ability to escape as needed from any situation that would threaten her. Her method of escape would vary from situation to situation and will always be successful.

Personality:
Alora is shy and quiet. She works as the caretaker for Chi Tau Sorority. She works as both gardener and maid, doing her duties and staying out of the way of the guests. She won’t approach anyone first, but will respond when spoken to. She’s intimated by males, and her responses to them will always be brief with an attempt to leave their presence as quickly as possible.

Alora is a virgin. Cock is completely denied to her. She’s not allowed to touch them in away way. She can’t even use any phallic instruments. This is exactly the way she wants it.

Background:
Alora was born centuries ago, during the thirteenth century. Her mother was a prostitute. Her father was just one of her nameless johns. She lived in a small village with her mother and dozens of sisters in the outskirts of a small castle. The castle was the home of a beautiful priestess who was practiced in the dark arts, worshiping the old gods of sin and lust.

Alora had no brothers, it was believed that her mother drowned her sons after birth. Her girls, though, she taught from birth about the pleasures of sex and lust. They were expected, after they had their first menstrual cycle, to become prostitutes like their mother. In fact, that was the path all of Alora’s older sisters followed. Alora, though, was saved from that fate by a visiting sorceress.

The sorceress saw something in the ten year old girl, but what it was, she was never told. Alora’s mother was promised wealth in exchange for her daughter, a deal that her mother agreed to readily. The last she would see of her mother was the sorceress handing her mother a bag of jewels, and her mother impatiently waving away her daughter and the sorceress while she examined her newly acquired wealth. She did hear rumors later that the jewels came with a curse, but exactly what the curse was, or its effects on her mother, was never to be learned.

The sorceress took Alora up to the castle to meet the priestess. After the meeting, the priestess took young Alora on as her one and only acolyte. The one that she would teach all her dark arts to, and give her powers untold. She was to remain a virgin until her 21st year, when she would be sacrificed to the dark gods to be reborn as their priestess, with powers beyond compare.

Alora spent the next eight years learning from the priestess. Learning all the dark incantations, watching and learning from her lewd sexual acts, even traveling into other dimensions to see her interact with the beasts and demons beyond. She took in everything eagerly, knowing that one day she’d have the same powers, and receive the same rewards.

When Alora was 18, crusaders stormed the village and castle. The priestess tried to use her dark arts to stop the invasion, to no avail. As the crusaders broke through the gates, they began slaughtering the priestess’s followers. The priestess, not wanting to see the same fate befall her progeny, used her dark arts to give Alora the power to escape the fate that was falling on them all, a fate that the priestess appeared unable to avoid. After all, save Alora, were slaughtered, the crusaders tore the castle to the ground, the remains of the dead burned and doused with salt.

Soon after the crusaders had left, a woman arrived and found Alora by the body of the priestess. The woman claimed to be the sorceress that had taken her from her mother years ago. She wanted to get here before the crusaders, but had failed. She told Alora that the priestess was not gone, that the dark gods had saved her and Alora had been chosen to watch over the land and wait for the return of the priestess, for as long as it would take. She needed to simply reside in the land of the priestess and remain a virgin until the time came for her sacrifice and ascension in power. As long as she remained this way, the dark gods would preserve her youth and her life.

The promise of the second sorceress proved to be true. Alora did not age and she healed from injury quickly. She even found she could do without food or water if needed. This allowed her to survive the centuries of near isolation while the land remained barren and destitute.

In the late nineteenth century, a wealthy woman took a fanciful interest in the destroyed castle and the legends that surrounded it. She convinced her husband to purchase the land and build their new manor home where the castle once stood. After it was built, Alora, thinking the woman might be the priestess returning, was hired as the live-in help. Wild parties and much debauchery was to be had in the manor house, but it soon became clear to Alora, that this woman was not the priestess. The manor never stayed habited for long. The original owners died under mysterious circumstances, and those that lived there after never stayed for very long.

After a time, the government decided to create a prison for women who were unfaithful, whores, or otherwise seen as sexually impure and perverse. Alora was taken from the manor as one of the first prisoners, a fate she willfully accepted, hoping to find the priestess among the inmates that were sent there.

As time progressed, so did the technology, and the cruelty of the men who began using electricity to torture and kill the women in efforts to “cure” them. Alora had escaped the fate of the electric shocks many times, but other women were not so lucky. Alora knew this could not continue, so she in the early 1950’s, she managed to sabotage the equipment so that the next time they were used, a fire began. Many men and women died in that fire, something she had not intended, but it did work to free those women that survived.

When the asylum was built later in that same decade, Alora became an intern under the psychiatrist and scientist who built the asylum. He appeared to have a lot of knowledge about the history of the land, and she hoped that staying close to him would help her find the priestess. She even wondered if any of the female patients admitted for sexual deviance would be the priestess she’d long been waiting for.

For thirty years, she remained in the asylum, before all asylums were shut down by the government. After that, Alora found herself alone again. The manor was empty, the prison a burnt husk, and the asylum was locked and boarded up. Alora returned to the manor, and lived there alone for many more years, until the manor was found by Ancilla. Ancilla decided to convert the house into a Sorority for girls, and Alora stayed on to help care for the house and the girls. Soon after Chi Tau Sorority was founded, it became clear that the sexual energies were again flowing through the place, and Alora wondered if any of these girls would be the priestess she’d been waiting so long for.

A few months later, Trasee, Rose and Ancilla decided to extend the reach of the Sorority. A university was needed, for what was a sorority without a university. Chi Tau University came into being, and with it, a Chi Tau City soon built up around it. The old prison was rebuilt as the police station, while the old asylum remained boarded up in old town. All the while, Alora remained as caretaker for the Sorority, watching the girls as they went about their sexual desires. She knew something was different about each of the three founders. They all had their own unique gifts, more than any other girl that passed through the land in the past 800 years. She wondered if her wait could be over, if the priestess would again be revealing herself to the world. Until such a time, Alora would continue to serve and wait.

Trasee Darque- Cum Slut City (RP)

Character Bio: Cum Slut City RP

Trasee Darque
Female Cybernetic Snow Leopardess
Chi Tau Triumverate (City Founder)
Age: 25

Abilities:
Shape shifting: Can take any form, even other genders. While she can be male, the most she’s willing to do is add a penis if the situation calls for it. It doesn’t allow her to affect her cybernetic components.

Fast healing: As a result of her shape shifting abilities and cybernetic nanites, she is able to heal and even restore lost body parts should it be necessary. It doesn’t take away the pain, and even after healing, she may still be in pain for some time. This ability has effectively stopped her aging process. Provided she always has power, she will never age or die.

Data gathering: As a result of her cybernetic implants, she has the ability to gather information about anything, or anyone, she sees. This shows up as a holographic data screen that is only visible to her. This allows her, at the minimum, to see the names of individuals she is looking at. She can access additional information about individuals and objects from the Internet, and parse it for relevant data, if the data exists. Once downloaded, she can store it in her memory core for quicker retrieval. If she’s in a technology low area, or otherwise has dampening preventing her from retrieving data from the Internet, the most she can access would be the data stored in her memory core. When connected to her diagnostic bed, she can perform a backup of any data she collected. Once backed up to her diagnostic bed, data and memories can be wiped from her mind, effectively allowing her to “forget.” Any deleted memory can be restored from the diagnostic bed at any time. Her combined neurological/cybernetic/organic signatures ensure that she is the only one able to access the data backup in her diagnostic bed.

Flight and FTL travel: Faster than light travel with flight was made possible as a result of her cybernetic implants. This ability gives her the ability to fly and the appearance of teleportation. She is unable to use FTL travel if the area has FTL dampers or flight dampeners in place.

Personality:
Trasee is a builder and a slut. As one of the Chi Tau Triumverate, she is one of the three founders who are responsible for handling the day-to-day responsibilities overseeing the city. Of course those tasks are occasionally interrupted by various sexual encounters.

Background:
Trasee was born human. She was a normal girl, quiet and reserved, preferring to keep to herself and her studies. She had one younger sister, Rose, who was much more outgoing than she was. Despite those differences, the two sisters were best of friends.

When Trasee was 18, after she graduated from high school, she decided she wanted to travel the world. She wasn’t ready to return to school, and thought it would be better to learn from the world as a whole. It was on those travels that she met a woman by the name of Aradia. Aside from Rose, Trasee had never really been able to get close to anyone, but there was something different about Aradia. She was much older than Trasee, almost like a mother figure.

Aradia was very knowledgeable about the world, and accompanied Trasee on her travels. She told her secrets about places that even the locals would find as obscure facts. Stories from ages long since past were told as if Aradia had experienced them personally.

When Trasee was 21, Aradia brought Trasee to an ancient stone grove. Trasee knew there was something special about this place. There was something that felt almost tangible in the air, powerful, and ancient. Aradia told her stories of druids that worshiped the gods of nature from that very spot. She even told the tale of the powerful sorceress, Morgan le Fay who used this spot to gain eternal life. She did so by sending her soul into the body of a young druid woman, sharing her body, mind, and memories. Every fifty years, she returned to this grove and transferred her soul into another young woman. Aradia revealed she was the last to receive Morgan le Fay’s soul, and she had chosen Trasee to carry on the legacy.

This revelation frightened Trasee. She wanted to run, but the ancient magics of the place, and perhaps of Aradia herself, kept her in place. Aradia told Trasee that she’d have great power, the power of an immortal sorceress, but Trasee only wanted to go back to her normal quiet life. Unfortunately, Aradia confirmed that was not to be the case.

What happened was a mystery. It was evening when Aradia began a mystic chant. Trasee must have blacked out soon after. The next thing she remembered was waking up, lying on the ground in the center of the grove, and the sun almost at its zenith. She was naked, and Aradia was nowhere to be seen. What surprised her even more was that her entire body was covered with white fur with black spots, and a similarly colored tail extending out behind her.

As she recovered from the shock of the situation, her body shifted back into her human appearance. Her fur and tail were gone. More than that, she could feel a new presence inside her. It was almost as if another voice in her head. It didn’t speak to her, more that her presence could be felt and understood, as if the thoughts were her own. Even centuries of memories were in her mind, mostly obscured as if hidden by a thick fog.

Over time, Trasee learned that she had the thoughts and memories of Morgan le Fay, just as Aradia had told her. Not only those memories, but the memories and thought of every person through the centuries that held her soul inside them. Morgan le Fay was more than just memories, though, but her will and personality filled Trasee’s mind. Trasee used that learn about her new abilities and to try to learn more from the sorceress inside of her.

The first thing Trasee discovered, by virtue of waking up with fur and a tail, was that she was able to change her form and appearance to anything she desired. Even her gender could be reassigned at will. She ultimately decided to keep her form as a female anthro snow leopard.

Trasee spent a year in the grove, learning what she could learn, before deciding it was time to move on again. She wanted to explore more, with her new appearance and new thoughts and memories. She wanted to learn more, and felt that her exploration would be the best ways to do that.

When Trasee finally returned home from her travels, she was 23. She found Rose and told her sister about everything that happened over her five years away. She even showed off her new abilities to her sister, and showed her sister her snow leopard form. Rose loved her shape changing abilities, especially the snow leopard form. Trasee soon found herself seduced by her sister and making love to her.

Over the next few days, Rose told Trasee about Chi Tau Sorority, convincing her enroll in the University and become a sister. As it turned out, their cousin, Ancilla, was the founder of the Sorority. Trasee liked the sorority so much, she decided to take it a step further. She convinced her sister and cousin to found a new city based on the Chi Tau principles.

Over the next year, Trasee worked with Ancilla and Rose to build Chi Tau City. During this time, she continued to learn more about herself, and more about the spirit of Morgan le Fay inside of her, and learning new abilities along the way.

When Trasee was 25, she married Ancilla, and became part of the Darque family. It wasn’t long after that when she was abducted by an unknown assailant. Blinded and deafened during the abduction, she had no idea who her captor, or captors, were. She was operated and experimented on for what seemed like an eternity. Her rapid healing allowing her to recover quickly, but the pain remained.

While it seemed like years to Trasee, when she awoke back in the city, she discovered she was only missing over the course of a weekend. She was also no longer completely organic, but had cybernetic components in her body. Aside from needing a regular supply of power for her battery, she is still learning the full details of her artificial abilities.
