The Haunted Cafe


The "Haunted Cafe," which is by the lake, and typically has events on Fridays from 10 AM to Noon. People of course are welcome to drop by at all hours, though that ghost will try to scare you away.

Be careful if you see a vampire bat, as he has been known to pounce on girls and nibble on their necks. None of them have complained, though.

New Singer: Bo Hoyes

The Queen of Hearts now has a new live musician: Bo Hoyes

The Limelight magazine had this to say about Bo, "Like Country? Like Style? Like attention to detail? Well, Bo Hoyes is the man you have to see. His uptempo set had everyone shouting and dancing. This guy oozes chrisma and panache and his sound was fantastic, well presented and with an excellent voice. Bo had the crowd in his hand, a sign of a great artist!"

"If you are into Country and Western, you have got to see this guy!"

In real-life, Bo Hoyes is a rhythm guitar player/singer that has played the Honky Tonks and Juke Joints from the Florida Keys to UpState New York, and just about every place in between.

When Bo came off the road 14 years ago he thought his days of playing music in clubs were over. After hearing live music in SL, and becoming apart of it, Bo has never looked back.

“Second Life has given me a chance to knock off the dust and play live for people once again.”

The 9/11 Memorial Vigil at Mystery

A number of places in Second Life had events or memorials of some kind devoted to the tragic events on September 11 ten years ago. Among them was the Queen of Hearts riverboat club in Mystery, whose normally happy atmosphere took on a somber tone that day. Manager Amythe Moonlight and her husband DJ Bloodrose Writer, along with several other staff members and some guests, held a memorial vigil in honor of those killed.


Welcome to our memorial vigil for those who lost their lives during the events of 9/11/2011. We take this time today to remember those who were lost in the tragedy, those who lost their lives in trying to rescue others and also all those who have died in the name of or in the service of their country. If you have a memory of someone dear to you, or a memory of the day itself that you wish to share with us we are here to listen. Or if you wish to reflect in silence then please do so.


Upon entering, people were given a lit candle to hold, and a 9/11 Remembrance Titler, which displayed the names of the fallen from that day. Bloodrose had the airwaves, playing musical tributes and speeches, and narrating both in voice and type. Following a recording of Martin Luther King’s “We Shall Overcome” speech, “No words other that those by Dr King can sum up what we feel. Ten years later, there are still some questions and mystery on what happened and why. Many have theories, but evil is evil, and the attack upon the helpless was a woeful and dishonorable act. And though time passes and for some memories fade. But justice and right, like a phoenix, was reborn from the ashes, and will soar to heights not seen before. Not America or American, not New Yorkers or those losing loved ones, but HUMANITY will become and has become stronger. But we must never forget, or we will be dammed to repeat it.”

A variety of songs were played, from the mournful “I Will Remember You” by Laura Pausini & Andrea Bocelli, to the defiant “Don’t Tread on Me” by Metalica. After a few songs, Bloodrose commented, “Many years ago, before the tragedy, A lady had a dream to be a singer. She worked toward this, and she & her husband had it as a goal. All she did was to improve her voice and learn how to sing. On September 11th, she lost her husband her main cheerleader and father to her daughter. She then recorded a song.” And then a woman’s voice began singing.

“This is your club owner Alexis 'Tygeria Mirabeau,’ “ Bloodrose told, “who cannot be with us today. But she thanks all of those who remember. We will always remember, never forget that day. Remember but grow from it. Embrace life. And remember those who are trapped still in the moment of loss. They are about you. You see them daily and may never know. Treat them as you would like to be treated. And together we will raise the humanitarian level of all life.”

“This is the first year the owner has given permission to speak on her story,” he would explain later, “She is at the unveiling of the memorial and will bestow her blessings on all and thanks from her and her daughter to you all for not forgetting and remembering.”

Songs continued to play, from Garth Brooks song in response to 9/11, to recordings of President Bush, to “Amazing Grace,” to “Freedom’s Never Free.” An Emileanne Resident came by, was silent for a while, then spoke, “I came to remember those that were lost that day. I am sorry I cannot stay longer but I will return later to continue the remembrance. ... And with each and everyone here. God bless you all.” She would later return.

Bloodrose continued, “In a moment, our world changed. But let it not be of sorrow eternal, but begin again the lifting of humans to the noble and strong position to help all of man. No matter if the tragedy is fire, flood, storms, poverty, hunger, medical affliction, or whatever you can fill in, to lift all to a place of safety peace and stability. Some of us lost loved ones, and can never forget. But, life continues. And if we do not learn from this, we will forever be trapped in that moment, and all the people, all families, all the rescuers, all the soldiers, who list their lives that day and subsequent days, would have done it all in vain. And we will be doomed to relearn what we have not learned in a tragedy yet again. I look around, and see many types of people and so ay emotions. Please, speak at will, all of you. This is for all of us. Speak when the spirit moves you. Do not be shy. If you wish to dance you may. If you wish to stand, you may. However you remember, just remember, and share if you can.

Star Meredith, after coming and standing in remembrance for a while, spoke, “I must go, but god bless everyone and this nation that was brought closer together by a tragedy that was so senseless and no one could imagine would ever hit us on our soil.”

Amy soon followed, “As we stand here today reflecting on those who have been lost may we stand as a symbol of lasting remembrance. Those who have left us too soon are not forgotten for those who have touched our lives live on in us each day in our thoughts and memories. As we think of not only those we knew but also those known by others let us keep them all dear in our hearts not just today but every day. If you have a memory of someone dear to you , or a memory of the day itself that you wish to share with us we are here to listen.”

While the airwaves played Johnny Cash’s “Ragged Old Flag,”Avnee Legion told her story, “I'll never forget that day. I watched the whole thing on TV, black and white TV no less… my partner at the time was in Israel and he called to tell me to switch the TV on. Couldn't believe what I was witnessing, there in real time. I didn't lose anyone I knew directly, nor anyone in my immediate life on that day, but we all share that experience anyway. How can we not. Nothing will ever be the same, time gets measured before and after 9/11. My thoughts and prayers are with the souls who lost their right to life, to the families who go on without them.”

Bloodrose commented again, “One day we as a species, will rise up and tragedies and atrocities will be a whisper in the darkness and a lesson to to teach as the dark ages of this century that we as one voice will shout,' It will never happen again!!'”

As the song “One More Day” played, Amy gave her story, “I'm not American but I was indirectly involved with the events of 9/11. I was online playing a game when the news broke. One of the young boys who played sent me a frantic IM. I often played the game with him and his father. I knew him as ‘Hunter’ Hunter was 10 years old and he was terribly afraid.”

“His father was in the Pentagon and was not answering the phone. His mother and grandmother were panic-stricken and crying and could not talk to him. He was terrified. I sat and listened to him as he described to me what he could see on TV. Pictures of the plane strike on the Pentagon and the devastation. he told me what his family were saying - they had forgotten he was there. They could not reach his father at all and his mother was grief stricken. He felt alone and frightened and their words frightened him more. He kept saying ‘I don't know what to do . What do I do. How do I help my mother?’ "

“We talked for 3 hours while his family cried and screamed in the background as the horrors of the tragedy unfolded. His fears poured out of him as more and more about what had happened was discovered. One picture showed that the part of the Pentagon his father worked in had taken a direct hit. He was frantic though doing his best to be brave for his mother. After a few harrowing hours he said with great dignity, ‘Thank you for listening to me. You helped so much but I must go and comfort my mother now,’ and he left.”

“I sat and cried for many hours. My heart went out to the young boy who was facing now being the man of the family. Although I did not personally lose anyone on that tragic day I lived that day through the eyes of a frightened child. The word got around that I had stayed with the boy and listened. In the following days others who lost people came to me with their stories and I heard so many harrowing tales of family lost on the aircraft and in the buildings. Each story touched my heart and still does. I will never forget that day or the people I met the lives of whom it altered forever.”

Bloodrose spoke, “The planes struck and towers fell,but that did not end the tragedy Thousands of rescuers still suffer for their service there. Their efforts both wonderful in finding survivors and not so in finding bodies. Robbed in their strength and their minds each and every day, we remember and praise their works and sacrifices!!”

Acrison Ronin then gave his story, “I was 13 when the attacks occurred. I knew no one at the time that had lost anyone in the attacks. I was in school (8th grade) and we weren't told what had happened until about Noon. That day though was the day I decided to enlist in military when old enough.

More songs played, “We Are the World,” John Lennon’s “Imagine,” and others. As Ray Charles’ “America the Beautiful” played, Bloodrose asked all, “As we remember, where were you when these events happened and what did you feel? Ten years later, How do you feel today?”

Evalynn Huet spoke, “During those 10 years, I made it a point to raise my children with respect for others, without hatred, and with a vengeance for freedom. Only my eldest two remember that day. And it has changed them too. One served for freedom this year, in Afghanistan. She learned the hard way, that this isn't easy. Ten years ago, I thought I could protect my children from evil. That day it became painstakingly clear that nobody can. The attacks didn't change just the US, it changed the world. And it's up to all of us to fight back and show we care, we survive and will make the world better.”

After two and a half hours, Bloodrose announced, “We are about to conclude our services. As always, the motions shared and unshared were felt and witnessed by the Queen of Hearts itself. The sadness, rage,a nd fear, spoken and not spoken was lifted to her mighty decks and for a moment lit the world of real and Second Life for a moment. Our legacy on what we experienced on 9-11 and today is to make the light of hope for humanity, become a beacon that guides our way in all worlds. September 11 2001 was not the end of humanity but its new beginning, and let it begin with me and all gathered here. As we think of not only of those we know who were lost or affected by 9/11 but also those known by others let us keep them all dear in our hearts not just today but every day.”

As the airwaves broadcasted Celine Dion’s rendition of “God Bless America,” colorful fireworks sprinkled the air inside the club, and Amy followed Bloodrose, “Let us remember and grow, stronger and wiser, compassionate and resolute, standing for freedom and justice. So that all was that lost becomes a beacon for what will be, now in our hearts in our future and in our hope and determination. We will not forget.”

MsPayton Gabe, “Everyone at the Queen of Hearts. Thank you for the chance to member, and thank you for the fellowship. As usual My Brother Bloodrose you kept our minds on the ones we cannot nor should forget.”

Bloodrose looked to the staff whom were there, “Remember all my Royal Hearts, to remember is good to prevent it from reoccurring, but remember to live! Embrace life, the moment, with your friends and loved ones. With that said,” he offered a hand to his wife Amy, who took it and smiles, “Remember all, but LIVE!!”

The vigil came to a close soon after, those participating either departing the Grid for real life, or heading elsewhere on the Grid where other tributes still went on. But the memories here would stay with all whom were here.

Hurricane Irene Stories from Second Life



No other country is as heavily represented in Second Life as the United States, and millions make their homes near the East Coast. So when Hurricane Irene smashed onto the coast on August 27th and 28th with it’s wind, rain, and flooding, many of us were affected in one way or another.

Among those in the path of the storm, yours truly. And remembering Hurricane Isabelle several years ago knocking out power for a week, I was worried this would happen again. So I made sure I had enough canned food & bread, batteries for the flashlights, gasoline for the generator, and uploaded a few things online ahead of time. I also had a number of books to read, plus pencil & paper if I wanted to write (or draw).

On the day of the hurricane was dark skies, thick clouds, and the strong breeze made the trees sway when I looked out the window. And the rain, at times it fell normally, others heavily, and water pooled in places in my yard. I basicaly hunkered down at my house, watching the local news and going about my business on the computer, keeping in touch with friends in Second Life, not sure if I’d be knocked offline at any moment. The storm was its windiest about 3-6PM SL time (6-9 PM local time), but power stayed on until a bit after 6:00, just when I was starting to think it might not fail.

But power wasn’t out for long. Before sunrise, I woke to the sounds and sights of power coming back on. And it stayed on. In the morning, I went outside and saw no damage but fallen tree branches, which I spent about an hour cleaning up. I wouldn’t be spending a week offline after all. But it wasn’t that long ago I had to spend a lot of money to fix up the house, including cracks in the ceiling that came about after a bad storm. It’s possible the storm might have shaken the house up for future problems down the road.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Others in Second Life had their problems. Grease Coakes lived further up the East Coast. “I didn’t go through a lot,” he told me, “it was just windy and rainy. I stayed inside, ... with food supplies I was fine. My neighbors didn’t think much of it. They were more unnerved by the earthquake. ... I’m used to rainy weather, but in all my life, that was my first earthquake.I thought the hurricane was overhyped by the media. It might have been worse in other areas, but here it was no big deal.” Grease lived some distance inland.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

SL Newser reporter Gemma Cleanslate was in the hurricane’s path in the northeast, “No wind or rain damage, but power out for about ten hours.” But many tens out thousands nearby were without power, “The town next to me, (power) will not be up for a week, they said. ... Our library was *full* of people tosay, charging cell phones, just hanging around (chuckle) people we never saw before.”

“I think Vermont is really suffering, never expected this massive flooding. And the Conneticuit River is going going to flood a lot. One farmer, a woman, who is about 45, took over her dad’s farming a few years ago and if the river floods her fields in the meadows, it will be devastation to all the corn down there. She had a bad harvest last year. This may be her last.” The farm was near where Gemma worked,”She almost quit then.” Later, Gemma told me the field was a total loss, “My farmer lady lost all her corn in the meadows. First timt I have had no corn for Labor Day weekend.”

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Xymbers Slade, or Aj Hyena as he sometimes calls himself on the Internet outside Second Life, whom does fortune telling online in addition to reporting for SL Newser, was also in the northern part of the hurricane’s path. He wasn't close to shore, well inside New York state far from the ocean, but still he was affected. He didn’t lose power from the wind knocking down power lines, but from an exploding transformer. When he called to see how long it would take, he was first told by the power company they didn’t know, then was given the impression his area was considered “low priority” and might have to wait a while, possibly more than two weeks. Hearing that made him feel, “Not happy. Not happy at all.” He was able to get limited access online from his public library, but couldn’t do much more than tell his friends to wait.

Fortunately, power was restored in a few days,and he was able to log back on the Grid. Xymber's Livejournal entry can be read Here (caution, adult language).

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Perri Prinz, DJ and Internet Fantasy writer featured on Book Island, also ended up losing power from Irene. “As hurricanes go,” she posted in her journal, “it wasn't terribly impressive. Basically it rained a lot, but there wasn't a lot of noisy wind like I'm used to. And we had not a bit of property damage. I had gotten about 3/4ths of the way through my show at Cutlass when the power went out, and it stayed out for three days or so. But they were rather cool days. So we didn't miss the air-conditioning.”

Perri being imaginative, she wasn’t really bored, but listened to the radio and pondered, posting a few of her thoughts in her jounral entry later, “Another stray thought that cropped up over the outage was how easy it was to get on without electricity. Three days to do nothing but sit and dream. ... And I wondered at those who think it would be some tragedy if we suddenly had to do without all our electrical toys - like life just couldn't go on without them. How silly.”

Eventually power did come back, and it was back to Second Life, back to Book Island, back to DJing, and back to her friends. Perri's whole post can be read Here.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Mystery hostess Monique Corbeau lived around the New York area, and told of some of the damage there, “New York got hit bad. We had very large waves, the winds were crazy. Trees went down. No electricity yet for most of us where houses flooded. Even when it passed, we still had the winds. Most of the Island, in some spots, still no electricity. My son’s (workplace) has none. ... My husband’s (workplace) has none too. We have friends who don’t have any. My house doesn’t either, staying with family until it comes back. ... Hoping for electricity tomorrow, they said it might be days.”

“We never get hurricanes, or even tropical storms, so it was bad for us. ... The news was talking about it for days. They evacuated us fast and good.” Asked if her neighbors took it seriously and got supplies, “yeah, when you went to get supplies, there was no more. So I left being by the water and went inland to family. Just their houses were flooded. One friend in Virginia, he said tree, floods, still no power for him. A tree went through his house. ... He said thank God he was at a shelter and not home.”

“We need to be better prepared next time. So many homes destroyed, and insurance companies won’t help.” Asking her for details, “will drop you, they say. Don’t like the sound of that. They say your coverage for floods might not be covered. ... We have (flood insurance), but they said it’s for a certain kind of flood. ... That’s all the news said. I guess we’re not under flood insurance for hurricanes because we don’t get them. ... Most don’t have cell service or phones right now.”

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Second Life live singer Debi Late, who performs at Mystery, was south of me in one of the barrier islands in North Carolina where the hurricane first hit the coast. She described details on her Facebook. Starting Thursday August 25th, she began posting about it, including weather maps of where the storm was and it’s projected path, “I'll be online as much as possible until power and/or internet service go kaflooey this weekend. We're expecting a pretty direct hit from Hurricane Irene. I'll keep you all posted on how we're doing!!” The hurricane was just one thing she posted about, others being about a cold, which caused her to cancel a show, and about the armed forces. Her friends posted her messaged wishing her well, and not to take chances, “Please be safe, Debi.” “I’ll be thinking about you.” “I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.”

Although she could evacuate to away from the storm, her husband was “essential personel,” so she stayed in the area. She did make the decision to leave her house to go to a shelter, “starting to wrap my head around packing all the important things in my house and taking them to the fire station where we will ride out Hurricane Irene. But I suspect my house will be very wet after this. So, computers/photos/scrapbooks/the works, is all getting relocated, today.”

The hurricane being downgraded got her attention, but she wasn’t taking chances, “Looks like Irene is weakening a little. But it'll still cause flooding of our area from the west. So I'm still leaving my house and hoping I don't have too big of a mess to clean up when I get home.” By evening, the move was done, “We're at the fire station now.... it started raining just a little bit, around 6 or so, nothing major here, yet. That'll happen starting in the wee hours of the morning.”

She got up early Saturday morning to check things, “We're having winds around 60 - 65 now, I'm hearing power is flickering. But this building has a generator, so we'll be ok. And the modem is on a UPS so I'm still online.” By late afternoon, water was being blown back onto the island from the west, “guess I'm going to have a wet house to return to.”

On Sunday evening, the hurricane far to the north, she posted, “We got our butts handed to us with this one. It was nasty, but we're alive. My house is flooded, but, it's stuff and wet clothes. No biggie, folks. We'll just relocate to something. Living in the fire station now. I know lots of prayers were working. Just popping in on someone else's computer ...” Two days later, she had concluded her home couldn’t be saved, “Our house is going to be a total loss, had about 2 1/2 feet of flooding in it. I'm working to salvage everything that's still dry, then we'll work on finding somewhere to live. ... This was the worst storm ever to hit our island.”

Needless to say, logging onto Second Life was out, “I won't be singing in-world for quite a while, till I'm back online and in a house at some point.”

But friends wanted to help out. Among them, “Just Because” clothing store owner Annie Melson. She posted, “Terk and I are wanting to help Debi Latte and her husband rebuild their life after the hurricane. I put up donation vendors in my store (link provided) to help Debi. EVERY cent will go to her. I'm also in the process of making a special outfit where all proceeds will go to helping Debi and her husband rebuild. Please donate! We love you, Debi!!” She was putting aside her work on her mens’ clothing for the fundraiser outfit.

I sent Annie a message asking about her helping Debi, and she later answered, “Yes, I have placed donation kiosks in my stores and another location to raise money to help Debi and her husband, and I'm creating an outfit that all proceeds from that will go to her as well. My husband, Terk, is also contacting others to help organize some special events to help bring in funds that way too. I'd like to get more kiosks out there so I'm willing to place the kiosks anywhere anyone will let me place one, and I've talked about it on my facebook page and group notices to help bring awareness. We just really want to help Debi and Mike as much as we possibly can. She's a good friend and an incredible person, and she deserves any help that can come her way.”

Annie’s store is at Taupo (60, 180, 36)

So for Debi Late, sadly her experience with Huricane Irene is not yet over. Hopefully she’ll be able ger a new home soon. For those with a Facebook account, you can read her posts Here.

Jazz Dinner Dance at the Queen of Hearts

On Saturday July 23rd, there was a small change of pace at the Queen of Hearts Riverboat Club. Long a place for music and dance, there was something new that night: dinner. The club held it’s first dinner dance.

Join us tonight at 3 PM for our first Dinner Dance! a 3 course meal with waitress service and DJ BLOODROSE WRITER playing Jazz and taking your requests! 500L$ on the board for best dressed in semi formal or cocktail wear. Come on down at 3pm and take our seats by the dance floor!

And at 3 PM, guests began arriving. Amythe Moonlight, acting as waitress, asked them to take a seat. Bloodrose Writer, the DJ, played a selection of Jazz music. Amy asked each of the guests to check the menu, and offered one from a selection of drinks, both alcoholic and not. Not long afterwards, she would ask them what dinner they would like, which could be spaghetti, fish, or steak. Later in the evening, desert was offered, which could be ice cream, flavored ice, or cake.

Standing prominently in the back of the club, a plaque of a jazz musician with saxophone had been been placed. In front of it were a wooden box of quality cigars and fine liquor in a fancy circle-shaped bottle. Guests were invited to partake of them if they desired.

Guests were invited to get up to dance, and some did, swaying to Bloodrose’s Jazz tunes. For about two hours, the music was played, and the food and drink were served before all wished each other well and departed the ship.

There are plans for more dinner dances in the future. So keep an eye on news bulletins for more.

Interview with Amythe Moonlight

Amythe Moonlight, the manager of Mystery, has become so beloved a personality, she has been christiened “Princess of Hearts” by both Tygeria and the sim’s patrons. Recently, she has become the center of attention with her “Masked Lover” Bloodrose Writer revealing himself, and then Mystery’s “Royal Wedding” between them both. Recently, I had a chance to interview her about her time in Second Life, past and present.

Bixyl Shuftan: So how did you find out about Second Life?

Amythe Moonlight: Someone in another game told me about it, so I came to see what it was all about. I discovered I could make things in here. That interested me and I started building. I began with art, and moved onto other things, In fact, we are sitting in one of the first big things I built - Stonehenge.

Bixyl Shuftan: Oh? Interesting?

Amythe Moonlight: it wasn't on Mystery then. It was moved here.

Bixyl Shuftan: (looks around) I didn't think this was among someone's first builds.

Amythe Moonlight: It was one of mine (laughs), after the art and a few tables. I actually created it from a photograph I took of the real Stonehenge.

Bixyl Shuftan: Nice, what kind of art did you create?

Amythe Moonlight: I started with 3D animated art, abstracts, and some photographs. I used to do a little landscape photography in real-life.

Bixyl Shuftan: Sounds interesting. How did you meet Tygeria?

Amythe Moonlight: I met her at a live music event (smile), and she asked to see some of my work.

Bixyl Shuftan: So she developed an interest in your artwork?

Amythe Moonlight: No, by then I was building houses and had built an semi-Asian style house. She asked to see it.

Bixyl Shuftan: What happened with the house?

Amythe Moonlight: She came and looked around, and was interested in part of the rooftop garden I had built on it. She asked me if i could build a shrine, which I did. Then she asked me for bridges. I think some are still here on Mystery. That's how I became part of Mystery really. I saw what she did here and wanted to help. Tygeria has an amazing talent for bringing out the best in people. So much talent. She is an amazing lady.

Bixyl Shuftan: It's my impression people think of you more as an organizer than an artist. When did you become Mystery's manager?

Amythe Moonlight: Well, I began to build on Mystery. Tygeria was changing things around then, and I worked with her trying to make the things she was seeking. The more I worked with her the more, I learned and the more I fell in love with Mystery and it's concept. To help people, with information, with knowledge, with somewhere safe to visit, with friendship, residents new and old, and to give them somewhere to come to feel at home. In my eyes that was such a wonderful concept, I wanted to become part of it. And so I started here as a builder, and then it grew, and grew, and I never left - and I never will. Mystery is a very special place, and The Queen of Hearts the most wonderful place to call home.

Bixyl Shuftan: How much of Mystery have you built?

Amythe Moonlight: I think Stonehenge, the cafe and the pub, and one shop in the village were originally my builds. But I have worked on other parts of Mystery along with Ayjay. And of course as we update, things change a little. That is one thing about Mystery that I love. The fact it doesn't stay the same. It is seasonal and changeable. You never know what you will find here. What is here this month may be gone next month, or be changed, or be added to.

Bixyl Shuftan: That's true, over time, there have been some interesting things that appeared for a while, like the funhouse.

Amythe Moonlight: Yes the funhouse, the rollercoaster, ruins have come and gone. We even had a kraken live in the lake for a while. That has moved on, though Nessie has stayed throughout . Our lake monster has been here from very early days.

Bixyl Shuftan: The lake monster?

Amythe Moonlight: Nessie - our version of the Loch Ness monster. Even Nessie changes though. She must be getting older; she found a hat and scarf last winter when we had snow here.

Bixyl Shuftan: Heh, with the 7Seas fisher at the lake, does anyone get their rod and reel yanked away? (grin)

Amythe Moonlight: Hehe! No-one has reported it yet! ... Well we have bumper boats out there, so they might scare her off. Hehe!

Bixyl Shuftan: Heh heh. ... Of the seasonal builds, do you have a favorite?

Amythe Moonlight: Ohhh, hmm, that's a hard one. I love the village in the winter with it's snow covered rooftops, and it's trees and lights. The little shops look very quaint. Last year we had ice-skating on the lake that was great fun, with a Christmas market all around the edges, quite Dickensian.

Bixyl Shuftan: Considering that Mystery has thrived for five years, I imagine there have been quite a number of memorable happenings.

Amythe Moonlight: The anniversaries and the supurise parties spring to mind. But everything here is memorable. And the fact it changes keeps people coming back to see what is here now.

Bixyl Shuftan: Anything stand out from the first few years?

Amythe Moonlight: I think the biggest and best thing in the early years for me was meeting Tygeria herself and getting to know her as well as I have! She has taught me so much. She is very inspiring and has the most creative ideas. I just try to make them come to life (smile).

Bixyl Shuftan: Someone told me that you and Tygeria make for an interesting pair of personalities, she the lively funmaker, and you the "straight woman" trying to keep her in check.

Amythe Moonlight: No-one keeps Tygeria in check. We work well together though, and have been sim partners for several years now.We are different, it's true. I tend to be quieter, but we both work towards the same goals and concepts.

Bixyl Shuftan: One of the more recent events has to do with another over a year ago, when you started getting some aynominous love notes.

Amythe Moonlight: Oh the Mystery Man! Yes someone was requesting songs for me from the DJs and live artists, and doing it anonymously. I could not think who it was, though I tried to find out. The songs were wonderful! And I admit it intrigued me. Early this year at one of the live events he revealed himself to be Bloodrose Writer.

Bixyl Shuftan: How long until it get to the point Tygeria was putting up "Wanted" posters?

Amythe Moonlight: Hmm I think that was after the first few months . She posted a reward! No-one claimed it though, since no-one guessed. He sent requests vs newbie (accounts) and remotely. He wasn't in Second Life at the time, so I never suspected him. I had known him for years though, and worked with him a lot in past years, but with him out of SL, I never dreamed it was him.

Bixyl Shuftan: Heh, I imagine it was a big surprise when he reveled himself.

Amythe Moonlight: Oh yes!!! And at an event too! Good surprise though.

Bixyl Shuftan: Did you ever suspect Tygeria might have known who it was?

Amythe Moonlight: I did ask her once, but she said she didn't. She seemed as puzzled as I was.

Bixyl Shuftan: So only speculation as who the "Masked Man" might be?

Amythe Moonlight: Yes it was all speculation until he revealed himself. I believe the live artist Debi Latte was in on the secret, but only for the last couple of weeks.

Bixyl Shuftan: So now that Mystery has had it's most memorable wedding, what are you plans for the future, for you and the sims?

Amythe Moonlight: Well I own Mystery's sister sim, Conundrum. Conundrum is a retail and visiting sim. It has a selection of small shops and a boardwalk and quay with boats to drive around the sim, as well as beaches and things to do. I design clothes and have a dress shop over there, and hope to have a fashion show later this year. I also have my Bears &Stuff business there, animated and chatty bears for all occasions. “Gone Squirrely” also has it's HQ there, so you have to keep one eye out for stray squirrels!

Bixyl Shuftan: Oh yes, the squirrel game. (grin) Supposely it's real fun to play in micro avatars.

Amythe Moonlight: Yes the squirrel game with rogue squirrels to catch! It's such fun! Ayjay and I have been working on that for a long time. We should have version 2 coming out in the near future.

Bixyl Shuftan: How have the practice games gone so far?

Amythe Moonlight: They went well and it is out for sale as version 1. Now we are working on a new version with even more in it! There will be some changes on Conundrum soon, and some exciting new merchandise in a new shop over there, so keep an eye out!

Mystery of course, always changes, and to see the changes here you need to keep visiting! The sim grows with us - it is a place much loved and cared for and as the seasons pass so she grows new things to entice us. As for plans, well there are many. But suffice to say I think we will see several changes here in the coming months.

Always a mystery! You never know what you will find!

Bixyl Shuftan: Anything else that you'd like to add?

Amythe Moonlight: Working with Tygeria and with Mystery is both an honor and a delight. She is my closest friend and my confidante. Without her Mystery would not be what it is today and neither would I. I have grown and changed since I came here as the island has herself. This is the magic of the place.

They say magic is full of mystery. But I say, Mystery is full of magic, both seen and unseen. It touches the heart and resides in the memory. I am so glad I found this place and became part of it, it is now part of me.

Bixyl Shuftan: Thank you for your time Amy.

Scenes from the Wedding

Lots of pictures were taken at the Royal Wedding last Sunday, but only a few went in the article. So, here's more.

The wedding chapel, with guests still arriving. Note one lady still has to completely rezz in her seat.

Our head hostess Miciah. Rumor has it she's a Tauren priestess in another grid, or a "holy cow."

Some gifts for the wedding.
