There’s something classically romantic about autumn. When I started planning my wedding, I knew I wanted a wedding that was set in the fall – the changing leaves, the crisp air, the shortening days, the on-coming holidays – it’s my favorite time of the year. I gave my dragon, Chris, a number of options for dates. Mad Hatter Day. International Skeptics Day. National Teacher’s Day. And of course, Halloween.
Given the fact that our birthday is November 1st (we have the same birthday, separated by exactly two years), we ruled out Halloween. He started pondering the other dates I’d listed and gave his reasoning for why we shouldn’t get married on Mad Hatter Day (he hates Jervis Tetch, the Mad Hatter villain in the Batman comics) and National Teacher’s Day (he teaches math and didn’t want his wedding associated with his students). After a bit of discussion, we decided on International Skeptics Day. It was symbolic in a number of ways – both personally due to my family’s history with marriages and as couple.

I’ve been gone for a while. I’m sorry. I just haven’t had the strength to blog, given all that’s been happening in my life outside of SecondLife and Plurk. I try to be as upbeat as possible, but I’m currently floundering, struggling to keep my head up. My next post will likely be the 10th of October and will feature an avatar with my real body type as well as a wedding theme, since my real life wedding is on the 13th. Anyway, onto the pictures. Enjoy!
I’m Auguste “Bunny” Finistair, and this is my blog. I hope to be posting new blog entries each Friday, but that may change once classes and work start back up for the fall. I’ll be blogging a wide variety of stuff from SecondLife, though most of my outfits will likely be fantasy, gothic, or grunge in nature. Despite that, I do occasionally have vintage or casual stints. I’ll also be writing a bit about my life or posting quotes or making up short stories to go with the posts – it depends on the post and what inspired it. I might also share bits and pieces of my novel-in-progress on here if the post is themed around one of the characters, so be aware of that.
This blog will not always be safe for the workplace or viewing around children, so I’ll make sure to notate the posts that are NSFW with that acronym in both the posts’ tags as well as the titles.
Hopefully you all enjoy the blog and I hope to hear from you all soon!
