When I was a kid I used to walk down to the beach and hang out all day. I would get too hot on the sand, but I could float or snorkel for hours and never get hot. You would think I would have learned to use sunscreen, but I guess the teenage brain really does work differently. I went home regularly sporting horrible sunburns just like this one. Lobster Red.

I think just maybe the sunburn set should have come with a big bottle of aloe vera gel. I lived in that stuff in the summertime. Trust me, aloe is the best ... and never put Noxzema on a bad burn. It feels good, but your skin will pay later.

I’m sure you’ve already seen Reek’s goggles and fins on other people but I couldn’t resist pairing them with Bare Rose’s new wetsuit. Of course the wetsuit comes in several colors, with shirt on and shirt off versions, with booties and gloves and surfboards, all at Ms. Dion’s usual ridiculous low price. And this smashing Reek gift comes with all pieces in eight different colors to match whatever. I modified the goggles to hang around my neck so you can see the horrific sunburn on my face. The Reek Sunburn pack comes with several versions of burn: with or without bikini lines, with or without glasses lines, farmer tans and so on.

Tekk is the new club down at the old dock. When they offered me a security job I thought it would be fun. What was I thinking? Not like I was ever going to see any of the action inside the club.

It's a hot club in a bad part of town. Watching for trouble outside is a little risky. But no one wants the Gannano family looking for them later. Tonight someone hit me from behind. ... the shocker was, when I came around I still had my weapon.

*rubs the back of her neck*

(I love the jacket! ... but I think it's fair to mention that if you wear it without the collar, you can see where the seams are misaligned at the left shoulder. Still love it! )

I tried to be flattered that they were sending me to scout Location 459b but I'm not that good at lying to myself. The truth is that humans are prejudiced and machines are expendable. Expensive but expendable.

There is a certain amount of randomness in a portal window, and the first try landed me in some basement level or other.

Hard anticlimax. I spent the whole 21.3 minute window looking for a way out.

Not much use for the jet-equipped magnetic boots*. Or the microatomic power pack that looks like a skirt.

I brought a scouting drone and the headpiece has sonic analyzers and its own lighting. Yeah. At least the lights came in handy. My employer was pissed but it's not like he could blame me. We'll try again next year.

Leaving the kitchen hearth to fetch some water from the well ...

Forgot my clogs, but I'll be more surefooted on the path.

I ran across the yoke back when Knickknack had a little cart at the Roleplay Market. I heard they opened a larger mainstore so I stopped by for a peek, and not only have they added some cute medieval-RP clothes, but more props next to the yoke .. a sweeping broom and a very nice animated washstand on which to wash your lord's tunics.

The way to the darkest black leads through the light. And the path to the dark Unseelie passes through the land of the cute little fae.

I thought the way to the brugh was somewhere near here.

I walked through the shady tunnel.


I considered photographing this outfit in brighter light but, honestly, more light did not make it easier to get a good image. This coat is just really, really, really Black. And surprisingly, I like it that way. The cuffs are turned up to show a gray lining, and the edges of the belts show a very subtle gray. And oh those feathers! I want to stroke the collar.
