Lake Serpent

Helena Stringer - IOF - Lake Serpent - 1
Everyone knows about sea serpents, but long ago, somewhere in the history books, knowledge of lake serpents got lost. Maybe it was those few pages that got ripped out, to be used as kindling for the fire. Or, heaven forbid, someone got creative when in the loo.

There also seems to be an utter lack of information on the fact that, when needed, serpents can actually shift into humanoid form, to preform certain tasks.

Seraseeya, Watcher of the River of Souls

Helena Stringer - IOF - Seraseeya - 1

Seraseeya was an unusual creature. With a foot in both worlds, she was neither human, nor fully a beast. Her mother was a harpy who had the unfortunate accident of picking a human male as a mate. We wont go into details, but the result was Seraseeya, and her 3 other sisters.

Things were not too bad to start. The Harpy Broodmothers could tell there was something a bit different about them, they had funny feet and they lacked claws on their hands. There was not a feather on their head, nor much hair to speak of.  They let them be, thinking they would grow into their features.

As the years passed, it became apparent that there was indeed something wrong, they looked more human, than harpy. This would not do.

More story and credits below the cut.

Rock me Gently

Helena Stringer - IOF - Rock me Gently - 1

I often get comments when I go out, that certain thing I wear seem “out of character”. I’m aware that over the years, I have set a certain persona for my avatar. There are many things that I enjoy in the fashion world, and sometimes these things don’t work with my more dark, supernatural, magical tastes.

That does not mean I choose to stay away from them. I often embrace them, and get a kick out of confusing people, haha.

I do have a love for historical fashion, as well as things considered retro. Genre this round is Rockabilly, mixing the love of the old with something a little bit playful and feisty.

Pipe Down Hoodlums!

I smoked for a very long time, started out casually around the age 17 and by the time I was 30 I was up to 2 packs a day. In April of 2009 I quit cold turkey and never looked back, it was a great decision.  LUCKILY, lung problems and cancer isn’t an issue in my 2nd life so my avatar can live dangerously…and she does from time to time. She also has a smoke every now and then and this new clay pipe found at this round of Genre is need I say…smokin!

It comes with a nice hud. You can choose how often you want to puff, you can let it know if you want to blow smoke out of your nose, your mouth, your nose and mouth, or blow out smoke rings. I like rings.  You can also choose whether you want the tobacco to fire up red or not and if you have show local lights clicked you can see your face light up as you take a toke. Good times.
