Ivanova Shostakovich Posted October 24, 2019 Share Posted October 24, 2019 (edited) We have a thread about lines from other residents that had annoying, disturbing, or even ridiculous qualities. It's been fun to read and participate. It's also a bit on the negative side. I have an appreciation for positivity. You may have noticed. I thought maybe it would be nice to have a discussion about lines that you've liked. Have you had a nice conversation with a stranger that made you feel good? Perhaps someone just dropped a random compliment on you that made you smile. Let's talk about something nice someone said about you to you. About three years ago, I think, I was in a group conversation. The group was for enthusiasts and patrons of a particular group of sans vêtements regions that still exist today. The conversation was a pleasant banter about nothing in particular, just people having fun, tossing puns around and enjoying each other's company. One of the participants IM'd me after a while and we began our own nice side chat. He was charming and intelligent. He had a wonderful sense of humor and used complete sentences and real words. We talked about how we both liked having a place to call home in SL. On a whim, I decided to invite him to see my house. When he showed up, outside my door, he typed 'knock knock'. I opened my door and we waited, saying hi to each other, for things to rez. I was hoping he'd tell me he liked my house, since I had built it. Instead, he said "You are stunning!" I smiled. It felt good. We stood there having more pleasant conversation, talking more about houses in SL, and the peculiarity of wanting a home in a place where it was actually completely unnecessary. Then he asked me to accompany him to a place he wanted to show me. So off we went on a sort of impromptu date. I followed him then to visit a region he knew of that had a tour of mythologies. It belonged to a friend of his who had started it just to be a home, but had become much more over time. We arrived and sat together in a boat that took us around the place, through different areas that had representations of gods and goddesses, mythological beasts and monsters. There were placards with story telling text. A part of the tour was under water. I can't remember now, but Charybdis and Scylla may have made an appearance. We spent probably an hour and a half there, at least, looking around, watching some of the animated parts of the dioramas, and strolling through a house with different rooms and some nice Victorian-type furniture. And we chatted all the while. I had a very nice time. The place is probably gone now. He told me his friend was closing it down within a month. Since that evening, I have not seen or heard from him once. But it's ok. I had a lovely time. I still think about how that compliment felt. And I took it not as merely, or only, on the presentation of my avatar, but of also who I was, of who he saw, in the conversation that preceded the visit. No one else is required to post something this long and detailed. Just have fun and see where this positive thread goes.
