Rabbit Day

It happens every spring: bunny girls appear out of nowhere, wandering around with mysterious baskets with eggs. Are they planting or are they harvesting, one might wonder. Which was first, the bun or the egg? Do they plant the eggs in spring to be harvested as baby bunlings later? Are they responsible for bun-population’s growth like the squirrels tend to trees: by forgetting where they hid their treasures?

rabbitday1bsPerhaps it’s for the best that we do not know, that we get to simply enjoy the sudden appearance of birdies and eggs, flowers and bunlings, signs of life returning.

rabbitday2bsAfter all, it’s better to be completely oblivious in case there’s cunning plots of bunnobility going on. What better time to be crowned as the Leader of All Bunkind than when the population is the largest?

rabbitday3bsThat said: do indulge your bunnies that like to hold odd things on their heads. You never know who you might be talking to!

Ozimals is hosting a wonderfully entertaining Easter-Egg Hunt in Magic of Oz. Port over here, click the poster to receive your egg basket and instructions and start hunting! You can read more about the hunt here. The dress by katat0nik, bangle by +Half-Deer+, sniffing nose by Fallen Gods Inc., burdies by Silent Sparrow and burd-fitting eggs by Schadenfreude are all hunt prizes. The bunnies in the pictures are also hunt prizes: special Easter Elites. As all Ozimals elites, the colouring is just a coat and not a gene: they won’t pass to the new bunlings and underneath the coat is a completely regular random bun.

The Forest Spirit

Can you see them? Dancing just at the edges of your vision, flickering within the embrace of the trees. 

forestspirit1csNot everyone can. Not even all of the druids. It takes a special attitude, special attuning to the forest before your eyes open.

forestspirit2csBut when you do, when your mind is finally relaxed enough, accepting enough, they are everywhere. Joyous, carefree, soothing. Even curious.

forestspirit3csFrom that moment on you will never leave the trees, no matter how far you might travel. The spirit will always be there, at the edge of your vision. Dancing.

The gown by Evie’s Closet, headdress by Alchemy and jewelry by .Eldritch. are all discounted at the moment in We Love Role-play. The skin by Jalwa and the makeup by +Nuuna+ are both from Skin Fair, which opens on March 14th. The hair by Exile can be won from The Arcade.

Phasing Out

It’s almost time. Do the last supply runs, double-check the charts, calibrate the portal. Make sure not to forget anything behind, not a single thing of value, not even a stray circuit.

silverscreen2dsThe portals are opening all over, the slower ships have already flown off, the time machines rolled back — or forward — just the ones who have either the tech or the innate ability to teleport have stayed.

silverscreen1dsFuturewave has 34 standard time units left before it phases out. Enjoy its last moments and make sure you don’t kick yourself later for forgetting the repairs-upgrades you wanted all along.

If you haven’t yet visited Futurewave, we’re approaching the last day fast. The event will close on Sunday 23rd at midnight SLT, but worry not: we will return next year! As for repairs-upgrades in this post there’s the dress by Zibska, boots by GALLACTIC, necklace, collar and background orrery by Spyralle, poses by {NanTra} and eyes from ~*By Snow*~ that are all available in Futurewave.

At the Core

Landing at the data core was a remarkable experience. It’s surprising how intact it still is despite all the stubborn attempts of the surrounding world trying to cover it up, grow around it, suffocate it, hide it away… who knows how the global plantmind works.

headhunter4csI managed to connect rather easily to it, just had to make sure not to use any tech newer than from Before Growth. It still had perfectly operational tracking parameters in its routines.

headhunter1csIt even had galactic sniffers in it still. Oh yes it did. Intergalactic location coordinators sure made the work of law enforcement easy once upon a time. Just like they now eased my task. Thank you, Ancients!

headhunter2csNow the only problem is to decide which one of the targets to go after first…

Almost all of the look is available in Futurewave that still keeps zooming on at light speed. The headhunter here consists of an outfit by Graves, boots, wings and cut cables in the back by Death Row Designs (DRD), skin by Pink Fuel, eyes from ~*By Snow*~ and earpieces and neural net by Chaos, Panic, and Disorder. The typing overwriter discs by Stuck Products are a fun freebie and the masks by Blue Falcon Industries can be won in a gacha, all of this in Futurewave. The hair and hairbase by Adoness are available in The Thrift Shop.

Code for Club

There’s this club, you see. A really shiny one. Shiny, but dark. Just the way I like it. I want to get in, but it’s early. Way too early. So what I did was called my friend who has certain… experience in adjusting robot protocols and gave him the bouncer’s code.

spaceclub3csThe bad news is that the bouncers are damn well coded. It took at least quarter of a unit before the ‘apologies citizen you are not authorized in this area please revolve and advance in another direction‘ litanies ceased.

spaceclub1csBut after that it was all smooth flying! My friend even snuck in a few codes for dancing! Not particularly bendy dancer, but very firm grip.

spaceclub2csPsst, while I keep him distracted, all of you can come in and party any time you like!

The best part of this all is of course that the club is real and it’s really a club! Club Gothika’s Mobile Unit in Futurewave is fully functional, operational and such things and you can find their schedule when you scroll to the bottom of this post. Today (Monday) there’s both the builder and the organizer of the whole glowing glory playing for you one after the other!

Monday 2/17 :  8-10pm SLT – Lokii Violet (Monday Night Spiral)
Monday 2/17: 10-midnight SLT – Bronxelf (The Monday Night Dark and Sticky)

The bouncer might not be present, but who knows, he could! He is actually one of Chip Midnight’s droids for sale in the event. Nicole Twigvald of Smileyorc graciously agreed to transform into one for the purposes of pictures, post and entertainment. The sneaky club visitor is wearing mostly :{MV}: (dress and boots), GALLACTIC (body suit pants pretending to be tights), Pin Me Down (eyes and makeup), Beautiful Freak (lipstick & nails), Chaos, Panic and Disorder (ear pieces and bracelets), .:ellabella:. (chest piercing) and Pink Fuel (skin), all available in Futurewave. The hair by Analog Dog is available in Collabor88.

After the Fall

Day 221, AF549. Woke up to the sounds outside. Screeching. Went to check. Dispersed the swarm, exterminated the stragglers and the stubborn. Light too harsh in mornings, why can’t they ruckus in the night?

outpost2bsDay 235, AF549. The right-side radar implant jams a little. I should have it checked the next time I leave the outpost. With the sunspot storms that’ll be another cycle and a half still. Better calibrate an emergency back-up, just in case.

outpost3bsDay 291, AF549. Performed the obligatory three-cycle scan-and-maintenance on the outer structures. It holds up well, not even a scratch from the screechers. Worth every exchange I did for it.

outpost4bsDay 301, AF549. The light is dimming. If I’m lucky, I might be able to get supplies quarter cycle early. If I’m not, this is just a herald of a new weather change. Or environment. Like that time the radiation rains hit the first time.

outpost1bsDay 336, AF549. Finished all my discs on The Boredom of the Past. I know, I know, worthless fiction, but it keeps me going. Just thinking of a world where everything is mundane and reliable and steady is a relief. Besides, the main clerk is just dreamy.

Almost everything in the whole scenario is from Futurewave. I turned the dress by [ SAKIDE ] and the chaps by .::Aftershok::. into a top and pants combination, although it creates some intriguing cuts in the process, since they really are chaps, not pants. The arm warmers by @->~ISD and the mask by .::Aftershok::. completed the selective covering. The radar eyes from *~By Snow* come with a HUD for selecting colours for everything, including the moving radar and the blips on it. The skin by Pink Fuel has an included layer for face glow amongst gazillion options and I’ll be playing with it more in posts where most of my face remains visible. The poses by {Rook} worked wonderfully with the ray guns by GALLACTIC and [bauwerk] is responsible for the most perfect post-apocalyptic safety outpost ever. The hair by Alice Project is available in The Thrift Shop.
