At Home – Voronoi House

voronoi4It’s been a week since I introduced my own home in SecondLife here. I decided to turn this into a recurring format, focusing my Sunday posts on houses, furniture, gardening or landscaping items. For issue #2 of “At Home” I have a real treat!

voronoi1I don’t want to say much about the events overshadowing the Home & Garden Expo. In my opinion, mistakes have been made on different ends. But that is no reason to punish hard-working creators of unique and original content.

voronoi2Personally, I love modern, industrial styles. I could imagine Leon living in a house like that. He would definitely put his grand piano in a prominent place. Next to a somewhat comfortable couch or bed and a few interesting books, it is all he needs to feel at home.

voronoi3Leon’s taste and his needs are simple, yet sophoisticated. And, frankly, who would not love to wake up to a view like this?

At Home – Mirror House

Mirror House - 1. Outside

Today’s post will be in a slightly different format than usual. First of all, it’s not about one of my characters and their adventures, but about a place. Secondly, this place was not built / put together just for the purpose of a blogpost.
Follow me to Mirror Lake. As it lies hidden in a secluded little area, surrounded by small mountains, it is not easy to find Mirror House. The humble residence of the Szpiegel family was built by Corv’s great-grandfather Erich. Recently the Kitteh inherited it from his great-aunt.

When he moved in, Corvus left most of the things as they were. He never really knew any of his family and being surrounded by their belongings makes him feel closer to them. He did, however, add a few touches of his own here and there.

mirror house - living

Most of the time, the Kitteh and his friends hang out by the fire, with the old-fashioned, but cosy kitchen right behind them. The furniture may be a little old and faded, but everything is still in good working order.

mirror house - sleeping

The bedroom area has probably seen the most changes. Great-aunt’s frilly and moth-eaten bed wasn’t quite Corv’s taste and he replaced it with something that doesn’t smell of dust and moth balls, and doesn’t have springs that poke your fur when you seriously try to catnap.

I hope you enjoyed the little tour around the house – it is a private place and normally only open to select guests.
There are too many items in the pictures to list individually, so I am going to provide a list of shopws where items are from, and landmarks if possible. I hope I don’t forget anyone… if you see something I missed, please let me know!

Allow me to introduce… Moran

moran

Name: unknown, goes by Moran
Age: unknown, probably early 20s
Born: unknown
Occupation: hacker

Moran is not paranoid – they are after him. Being an elite hacker, however, he knows how to cover his tracks. Quietly, he moves from one place to another, while he recovers from an assault he barely survived.

He’d call it a stroke of bad luck and shrug it off with half a smile. Does he know who is after him? Certainly. Does he know why? No.

Moran suffered severe amnesia due to his injuries. All he remembers are his hacking skills, and he is fluent in both English and Russian.

Now, Moran is using his skills to comb through the most secret parts of the grid, hoping to find a trace of his former self.

OOC information:

Moran’s name was taken from the Sherlock Holmes books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sebastian Moran is the right hand of Holmes’s arch-enemy, Professor Moriarty. The original, Hebrew meaning of the name is “teacher”. Both do not have anything to do with “my” Moran as a character, I just liked the name.

Moran’s basic looks:

skin, shape & eyes: TheAbyss

Today’s look:

top: monso
pants: Neurolab Inc.
shoes: Reek
beard: Antebellum
cigarette: Action
broken nose: flitink
bandages: The Box
arm cast: [ht+]

Today’s set:

skybox: Cargo Co.
couch & laptop: Meshworx
ashtray: Action
fan: LISP
pizza & beer: Dutchie
car door: Apple Fall
