Victorianna boutique, post 4


The other day, I thought to myself: If SL goes away due to complete company fail, what would remain? I can't take my gorgeous wardrobe off-world, and although I can keep friends in Plurk, how long would we hang out if we don't have anything in common any more? But then I thought of William Gibson and Neil Stephenson and took heart. SL isn't a temporary phenomenon, it's the beginning of a movement to virtually collapse space so that we are all neighbors in the blink of a teleport.

I think I got all postapocalyptic because of a dream I had last night, in which America's economic situation had gotten so bad that my family was wandering the streets starving, and I had to contemplate slaying Alba to keep her from dying slowly of hunger. Anyway, it could just be the stress of the semester wearing on me. My wise aunt Nancy once said that you are everything in your that if you dream of hunger, you are the hunger. What does it mean? I think for me, I just fear letting my family down.

This blog post is the fourth in the Victorianna Boutique series, one left to go. I got lazy and photographed in-world, but I quite love my outfit and hair. The hair for these posts has mostly been the delicate updos from Cornelia Rothschild's Historical Heroines shop. If you've seen her around the grid, you know that she always wears an awesome doll key. I'm wearing one here in her honor.

First off, I have to say I really love this series of posts. Victorianna was one of the first places I spent most of my time at in my newbie days. Just seeing the pictures brings back so many memories.
Now about your wise Aunt..for the past two nights I've dreamt of sex. Two nights ago with a vampire (I shit you not!), and last night with my boyfriend. Does that make me...the sex?

Speaking of dreams Ach...
...I was hoping you could tell me what my latest one means? :)
Gibson and Stephenson (and Morgan and Nylund) are touchstones. SL or something similar ARE a movement that will become more and more significant as time passes. Great post! <3
