beloved suit

Girl Ach and Lawless hang about in ~silentsparrow's~ beloved suit

Something stirred in my mind when I stared at the fabric of this suit. All the detail, the lacing, the shading -- it's black on black, a rainbow of black. What was it? A long lost childhood memory...

Of young Ach, discovering a strange sci fi book at a used bookstore in Hawaii, Utopia Hunters. When I read it it was above my head, all about Marxism and vast decadent courts that pursued utopian societies only to destroy them (for their own good, of course).

Twenty years ago I was haunted by the description of the dark rainbow, the riotous colors of black that adorn the emptiness of space between utopias. I found the dark rainbow, and my memory, in the brocade of this suit...

Old Fashioned did a lovely post about this suit too!

Lest you think I'm getting too serious, be warned: when you hang out with Lawless and Dove things start to happen, like a sudden influx of bloggers and cross-bearing chimps who obviously all have to pile into the photosphere and take a picture or two...

Damnit, Lawless - I was just on my way to get that suit. *grumbles and looks elsewhere*

That hair looks far better on the chimp than it did on me, Dove!

Aw, come on, Winter. The suit has 12 pieces, surely you can come up with a different way to wear it.


Winter Jefferson said...

Heh - 'tis allright, Achariya. I used it as an excuse to get the Coronis Suite in Dusk that I had been considering for far too long. :D Thanks for the prompt.

*grumbles* I wonder why neither I nor my alt nor my damn fiance got ANY of hya's last few group messages. This way I'll never be able to be up to date with my Silent Sparrow addiction...

Group messages are soooo royally messed up, Alyx. I've gotten _one_ silent sparrow notice in the past month, and that was for Axis Mundi. No one at all got the last notice she sent out (last night)- she had to go into chat to tell people (and even that was being twitchy a bit).

I found out about this one on the feed as well, and of course had to run off and acquire it post haste ;)
