If the Gothic lifestyle is dying a slow death, it is because Emo murdered it. For all intents and purposes, Emos mirror the Goths in temperament and dress, but tend to lean a tad bit more melodramatic.
More melodramatic than Goths. Let that sink in. Essentially, Emos are Goths who cry a lot more. Now, before any enraged VR porn lovin’ Emos storm my citadel, relax. I am a former Goth lifestyler and not just because of the fashion.
Okay, maybe the fashion was like, 80 percent of it. Bruh, who could resist crushed velvet, leather, and chains? Goth culture was also sexy, sensually emotive and introduced me to underground anime, where whispers of VR animation, CGI dreams and yes, even VR porn were soon introduced. In the end, I was really drawn to Gothic society because it was a forward-thinking, progressive construct. A place where I kinda sorta fit in.
Back in its heyday, the roaring 90s, I hung out among the freaks, geeks, neo-hippies, and nerds in an area of town called Li’l Five. Here, I found Goths to be actually fairly intelligent, whimsical and funny. Darkly funny, but funny nonetheless. Unlike what many seem to think of the subculture, it was never about simply being dark and broody, but about examining the elephant in the room, death. Instead of fleeing the idea, Goths embraced the concept of our inevitable demise and alternatively, used the reminder to live life to its fullest.
That said, many of the folks I met in this world were also angry malcontents, with a fuck the world angst that was common among punk rockers, skaters, metal heads, riot grrrls and just about any other bird flipping rebels of the time.
I loved that the most about Goth-Emos and wanted to represent them with a VR animated lovely, someone kind of borderline vanilla but who found some of the aspects of the romantically grim world appealing. CGI Sasha was born.
Re-Imagining the VR Sex Vixen
Now, bear in mind, I first created Sasha Morgan in the 90s, when Luv and Magick was called Spirit Gum and the cast of characters was a little bit smaller. As the somewhat bratty sister of Aimee, Sasha was also creative, using her Pulse Magick degree to pursue a career in hairdressing. In the CGI drawn world of Spirit Gum, some female mages hair had a tendency to grow too fast due to the way alien tech magick nano cells interacted with the human body. Hairdressers like Sasha offer No-Grow spell casting styles that mitigated the growth until a newbie caster could control their crafts.
The Sasha of 2018 is still a magical hair stylist as it were, but her outlook and manner of dress altered to catch up with the times and create a VR sex persona. She’d always been polyamorous, an aspect that was largely behind her penchant for stealing other chicks boyfriends, because hey, why not? In addition, she is also pansexual — if you are cool, she may do you, no matter how you identify. I added this aspect to give Sasha a contemporary attitude that would match her life perspective. See, many of her well-meaning high jinks come from an I-Don’t-Give-A-Shit aspect of her nature. She doesn’t try to cause harm, she just does so as a matter of course to reach an end goal. After seeing the destruction she leaves in her wake, she may or may not apologize for it. Depends on results.
Virtual Reality Sex Kitty and Goth Doll
Where does the Goth aspect come in? Partly in dress (I mean, shit yeah, underground clothing is all kinds of metal studded awesome), but I give her a candy goth style, lots of bright off colors, especially in hair, she is after all, a beautician. The other part comes from her choice in Pulse discipline. She’s a celestial, magick that is derived from the death of things like stars, planets, even universes. For this reason, it is powerful and unwieldy, which is why Celestial women often have to rely on No Grows so their hair doesn’t Rapunzel out as they learn control.
But just like Goths, my virtual reality magician’s nod towards death is also the recognition of balance. A star’s death can create a pulsar or quasar. Different Celestial levels can tap either or–even both. So, from this death a new level of power and insight is gained.
The Luv and Magick virtual reality maven need only steer clear of black holes. Tapping that? Not good. Just not good.
What is good is the VR Porn aspect. Sasha is perhaps the most highly hedonistic of the crew, but she gives as good as she gets, and often allows her lovers the freedom to roam as she does, with few caveats. There is only one exception to that rule, a man named Master Kuan, tri-level mage and Sensai who broke the rules, captured her heart then shattered it. He’s perhaps the only man she resists, but always gives in to. The VR sex type thing there always culminates in a fiery explosion that rivals the birth of quasars.
But hey, if you are gonna go out, go out in a virtual reality big bang. Yeah. Couldn’t resist.
And yeah. Neither can she.
