If I Pretend It’s Not There

1 Lady of the Manor2

I was working on a photo yesterday when Rwah IM’d me. We chatted for a while, with her telling me she was finally getting her sim together, and shared raw shots of photos we were working on back and forth. I was struggling with an angle and set to showcase the dress from Apple May Designs I am wearing, but Rwah just didn’t get it. Honestly, neither did I (it wasn’t this photo, by the way).

She had told me that I should come to see what she had done already, but not to go into the kitchen – it was “a bit of a mess.” Then she told me to get off my platform and use her kitchen to shoot my photo. With trepidation, I TP’d over and into the glorious, gore-fest she had created. The stuff from which nightmares spawn. Telling me to make myself at home, she then proceeded to leave me all alone in this room where horror is the recipe and terror is the final dish. Below is a (pardon the expression), raw shot of her kitchen.

I couldn’t quite bring myself to do it.

Not only am I the kind of person that watches horror movies with squinted eyes between barely-splayed fingers of one hand while gripping the thigh of my companion with claw-like talons of the other, I was suffering from that Second Life phenomenon known as texture refresh. Yes, the textures on the baby, blood and table cloth kept refreshing, making the fabric and skin appear to crawl like thousands of maggots were just beneath the surface, struggling to get out. And come at me.

No. Just NO.

So I plopped myself down in the rather safe confines of the parlour next door and included just a glimpse of the gruesome scene next door. If I pretend it’s not there, it’s not…right?

There ya go, sis. I got off my platform. Ya happy now? 😛
