Fond Memories of Steelhead

As I promised about a week ago, I think I would like to think back upon my first encounters with Steelhead. A little bit of back-history is necessary first, though.

As I noted in a previous post, I had spent alot of time socializing at the Yakkity Yak Cafe at the south-east corner of the intersection at the Caledon Prime telehub. It was there that I met the beautiful Absinthe Nosferatu, an avowed addict of her first namesake, and suspectible to dalliances with the ilk of her second namesake. But she was endowed with not only ravishing looks, but a personality that swept one into her vortex helplessly. I also knew she had a job as a Madame at a brothel, but I didn't know where. I just knew it was in a Victorian sim other than Caledon. She had a suitor, Mr. Rogue Desmoulins, who was in every manner of behaviour so like his namesake, with a Victorian veneer of gentility, while a villanous rascal broiled under the paen social etiquette. She, in many ways a helpless lass, hung on every word of Mr. Desmoulins, until this Vampyre came onto the scene, Mr. Ikaboem Quine. Suddenly, Rogue, who so liked to handle the young miss like a marionate, became consummately jealous, and sought my help in the matter. At that point, I didn't know Rogue was really a rogue....he can play a smooth part when he wants to, so I initially agreed to help him. But it wasn't long before I discovered Ikkaboem was the true gentleman, and Roge an insidious viper.

Thoughout all of this, unbeknownst to me, Miss Absinthe had taken a shine to me as well. While I was interested in her charms, I was uncertain that she was of the persuasion of being interested in women as well as men. While the drama unfolded between those three, I was one evening at a ball at Miss Leosanni Somme's Crystal Pavillion in Caledon II. As I recall, it was a Relay For Life Ball. It was a splendid event, with Bachman Bastillion putting on a marvelous fireworks display over the living Chessboard. I first met my SL sister Jamie Demar there (well, I already knew her as my alt, but at that time, she didn't know she knew me already, till the next day). It was there at that ball that I met Miss Rea Zaftig. There was a little role play involved over the next several days, when she almost seemed to be a mysterious Vampyre hunter seeking me as her prey. As things turned out, she had a romantic interest in me, if she had somewhat aggressive tactics, and we hit it off quite well, and I became her sub.

Well, as things would have it, it turned out that Miss Rea was actually an alt of Miss Absinthe. Shortly afterward, we concocted a plan to expose Rogue Desmoulins' infidelity to Miss Absinthe. Rogue frequently had hit on me, and I had turned him down each time. Rogue didn't know Rea was Absinthe's alt, and even though he did know Rea, he thought Rea was a rl friend of Absinthe's, and that they called each other alot. One day the three of us sat down for tea at the Yakkity Yak. Miss Rea made a number of shows of public affection toward me, and we could tell Rogue was showing signs of displeasure. We finally got him to admit openly that he wanted to have his way sexually with me. That's what Absinthe/Rea needed to hear, because Rogue had frequently told Absinthe that he was desparately in love with her. Well, all that was the set-up for the next day, July 4th.

Absinthe invited me to join her at Le Jardin de L'amore (sp?), the brothel in Steelhead. It was a wonderful, fun day. Absinthe and I had a little time for romance, while she gave me a tour of Le Jardin. Interestingly, Rogue Desmoulins decided to show up. First we tricked him into giving me $200L for a kiss. I gave him my most coldest, Vampyric kiss I could. He was outraged, saying that it was the worst kiss he ever had. With wicked delight, I lounged about Absinthe in scanty lingerie, while Rogue sat on a coffee table and moped most of the day. As a result of this, Rogue disappeared from SL for quite a long time, giving Miss Absinthe the peace of mind she so desparately wanted. It also gave a number in Caledon no small amount of happiness, people such as Abbey Underall and Mystical Cookie, who had grown to a point of outrage at Mr. Desmoulins' treatment of Absinthe, and were all but ready to start a witch-hunt against him.

David Petrichor, a Caledon and Steelhead frequentor, popped in and out most of that day. I got to meet Arianna Pinkerton, a child avi of about five years of age to whom Absinthe was the guardian. Eventually, I ended up adopting the child and her twin brother Folco Boffin, because Absinthe thought a brothel was a poor place to raise a child. I also met a certain Giselle Lang, who a couple of weeks after Absinthe and I broke up became my next Mistress. Later, Giselle and I would steal away to Le Jardin for some time alone. :)

July 4th was also the day that I met Steelwolf Pascal, the then Mayor of Steelhead. We got to talking quite a bit. He gave me a tour of the Grand Hotel, showed me the ship in the dock, and the shopping area, and showed me all his builds. I built him an American flag from the early 1850's (which of course, Steelhead is an 1850's Oregon Territory sim, formerly known as Ambertown, if memory serves correctly). That night was the first of the many balls I would attend in Steelhead, with more hopefully to come.

Of course, my other big tie to Steelhead is Qlippothic Projects, and to a lesser degree, her father, Dr. Darien Mason, who at that time was Steelhead's Sheriff, and an incubus of sorts. I met Qli actually at my cafe which at the time was in Caledon Tamrannoch. We had a pleasant, if brief romance, though we still remain friends, and her or her father often invited me to Steelhead Balls. Most of my friendships in Steelhead sadly are limited to ball room pleasantries...I just wish I had the time to deepen these friendships.

While Steelwolf was still Mayor, he and Desmond Shang negotiated where I would be Caledon's Ambassador to Steelhead. Sadly, shortly after, Steelwolf ceased being Steelhead's mayor, and it now seems that my status as Ambassador hangs in Limbo. Nevertheless, I'll never forget July 4th, 2006, and the day and night and morning I spent in Steelhead.

It never ceases to amaze me at the interconnection of peoples in SL. A more modern case in point, the forthcoming marriage of Christine McAllister and Edward Pearse, linking together Caledon and Steelhead even more closely. It is my hope, that in these ti9mes of war between Caledon and Neualtenburg, that Steelhead and Caledon can maintain our amicable status of international friendship! May both live as long as SL does!

you have a very interesting past dear i realy enjoy reading about it

Amber_Palowakski said...

Thank you, sweetie! I'm only touching the tip of the ice berg, though, in my quite eventful 1st year in SL, on which I was logged in prwctiacllay EVERY day of that year, less, maybe 5 or six days. Isn't it ironic, that on my first anniversary in SL, my computer dies, and I can't get back into it? :(

It's been so very long, I can't exactly recall...Le Jardin de la Lune et la Fleurs d'Amour, I think, was the full title, but honestly, by the time I got there, and we were on madam four--or was it five?--everyone just called it Le Jardin or Le J.

Amber_Palowakski said...

So would the correct translation be "The Garden of the Moon and Flowers of Love"?

Darien Mason said...

I believe it was Le Jardin et Lumiere to be honest.

Now the interconnectedness gets more confusing by the fact that I adopted Arianna Pinkerton along with her "brother" Alan Kenko as clockwork dolls! Qli shipped them to me from Caledon after she left the nest! It gets even more complicated from there but describing it would create a genealogical wormhole and cause my journal to implode!

emillyorr said...

Thank you, Doctor, yes--I believe you're right.

It did translate something equivalent of "The Garden of the Moon and of the Flowers of Love", essentially.

I suppose at least the new bordello's name will be easier to spell...

Desmoulins gives us rogues and cads a bad name.

Amber_Palowakski said...

Well, that's very interesting, Dr. Mason.

Amber_Palowakski said...

Quite true, Lord Puck, quite true!

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.

The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

K guys thanks. Hope to hear your feedback alright? Bye :D
