In which I meet with Miss Palabra Puddlegum on a matter of business. (RP)

Some of you, dear readers, may recall my consternation at my initial anthropomorphic transformation (earlier post). For many months thereafter I set about searching for whatever means might be had to extricate the fiendish spirit to which I had become conjoined. Alas, my efforts proved fruitless. The best I have been able to manage is something of an equilibrium.  It is, unfortunately, a dynamic situation which occasionally results in my being wholly translated to the metaphysical realm at unexpected times.  I am usually able to return to the physical metaverse in short order, but the effect can be startling to the unprepared.  In the year since (yes dear friends it has actually been a year since) I  have come to accept that this is simply the way of my life now. I have also discovered that there are some advantages to being half-demonic. Among these is a certain facility in the making of agreements, contracts and the like.

The progression of my transformation

 

One such contract has led to some rather intriguing developments for which I crave your indulgence as I relay the tale. (more…)

Can Haz Noo Clothez!

Hiya folks, 

Ailuros here again.  Betcha been wondering what I’ve been up to.  Well, even if you haven’t I’m gonna tell you.  First thing is I started perusing XStreetSL looking for some new duds to get outta these noobie ones. Now, don’t get me wrong.  For freebie stuff it’s pretty good; but, I have a certain look in mind and  this isn’t quite it. 

XStreet showed me some cool possibilities, but there’s one big problem.  When I Search with “neko male” most of what I get is baggy musclehead stuff.  Is there some reason neko males have to be Mr. Universe/Conan reject types?  Why does urban have to equal grungy, back-alley, or feral?  Whatever happened to the sleek agile house-cat?  I’m not necessarily talking androgynous bishounen here, either.  Something in between.  I did find one full avatar that was almost exactly what I wanted, the Max Black Cat Neko Male Avatar by Atea Avatars (SLURL). However, the L$2500 price tag was a little Max Black Cattoo steep for this thrifty-cat.  Besides, not only would that have made for a really short and boring blog post, but then I’d be just another Max Cat on the grid.  I figured I could do better, at least in price.  (more…)

First Steps

Halloo everyone!  Ailuros here.  Mr. Onyx wanted me to share with you all my emergence from total noob to neko.  I suppose this might be interesting for a while, so why not. 

First things first.  I initially rezzed in Fairy Crossing as a noob goth male.  Not a bad starting avatar.

The noob goth lands in Fairy Crossing.

Once things rezzed in I set off for the Learning Grove where the fae had set up their noob orientation.  It was set up like a path through the forest.  Ooh! butterfiles!

ehem
