Hooker Holdup

Inspired by an excerpt from The Blade Between by Sam J. Miller.

Transcribed from the reading by Draxtor, prior to the Second Life Book Club on 14th April 2021.

“In 20 years the railroad will arrive from New York City, heading north for Albany for Canada. Its path perfectly plotted to cut off Hudson’s North Bay crippling the city’s shipping trade, start it’s slow decline to irrelevance. 40 years after that, Hudson will have become the East Coast largest centre for prostitution. Diamond Street whorehouses so notorious they will have to change the name of the streets of Columbia after the governor personally census form of state troopers to bust up the brothels that local authorities have coddled and patronized and exploited for information for decades.”

So I thought it would be fun to put together a cliche prostitute look for that episode of the Book Club.

Turns out the quote was one of the readings as well, you can hear it at timestamp: 33.38

Of course some location shots were a must, but wouldn’t be complete with an arresting officer too! Which is why it’s taken so long to get around to publishing this, I needed to find one that would let me go afterwards!


Bloody Roses – Moving my Blog

Back in June 2020 I changed my SL username from AvaDelaney Resident to Ava Bloodrose. Thank You Linden Lab for bringing back proper Last names, your hard work is appreciated.

My choice of the name AvaDelaney was based on a book by Claire Farrell called Thirst and the subsequent series.

Ava Delaney calls herself a hybrid—a living, breathing human who happens to have vampire poison running through her veins.(Thirst (Farrell, Claire. Ava Delaney #1)

None of this will be news to anyone that’s read my About Ava page, or my inwold profile. I thought the name and a few character traits would be good for RP, which has been true. However the character in the books, while being this superhuman part vampire person, was actually quite reserved unless you pissed her off. The personaity of the Second Life avatar that’s developed since then however, it’s quite different!

While you might likely catch Ava Delaney in denim like the header image, it’d be done all the way up to keep out cold of Dublin in Ireland where the books are set. You certainly wouldn’t find her in situations like this:

So inline with changing my SL name to Ava Blooodrose I’m going to do the same with my blog.

Update: Or Not..
