Post 6 Grrrl — Lacie Babenco

by Alphaville Herald on 23/01/09 at 7:28 am

[The idea of the Post 6 isto feature different SL residents and let them talk about themselves – their (second)lives, their projects and their interests. This is the first time that a Post 6model wants to talk about someone else, the woman who inspired her so much thatshe gave her second life a certain direction. And while herself an amazing andinspiring personality, a woman with a great humor and many talents, LacieBabenco is paying tribute to the Grande Dame of Post 6. – Bunny Brickworks]


Marilyn Murphy! I'm herebecause of Marilyn Murphy! Now, even Marilyn will be scratching her head atthat one for a moment so I'll explain a little about all that.

In the summer of 2007, Iwas kind of aimlessly meeting people randomly when I came across Marilyn'sworld. I'd never met such a longtime avatar in Second Life and was captivatedby her beautiful avatar.  She was very sweet to me, helping with myavatar's shape and looks and took my first ever SL photos to go in my profile.   

From that one meeting, anda few chats afterwards, she impressed me with how much was possible here. Shehad a SL magazine, ran Post 6 and had all the celebrity that came with being 'Marilyn'which just stunned me. It inspired me to do so much more than I ever gave thisplace credit for.   I became fascinated with the idea of doing'something' here. I can't build, I can't code, I really was nothing more thanan outgoing wandering spirit. Marilyn told me anyone could do what they want ifthey want it badly enough.


Her magazine"Players" inspired me to try something I'd had as a secret passion inRL as an amateur writer of erotica. I crave sensual and erotic experiences thatmake the senses tingle rather than the 'hardcore' of some writers. So the ideaof my own adult magazine was hatched and "A Touch of Lace" wascreated to feature writers with that same spirit as mine.

The idea was simple, bringamateur writers and photographers together in a regular magazine for SecondLife.  Each issue has a central theme that the writers focus on and submitfor publication.  Those stories that are selected then get matched to aphotographer who can interprete it and apply beautiful, sensual images that areerotic to compliment the stories.  Making a magazine is not easy, but thepeople I've met ever since Marilyn have given me a rich and full experience inSL.  It has been a labor of love and after making 5 issues since Decemberof 2007. I've learned so much that I can honestly say that SL is a place whereanyone can achieve something great if they want it enough.  So if you'reinto writing, look me up.  If you like taking pictures, let me know. I'm always looking for the talented souls in SL and hope to continue to publishthe next issue this March. 

My desire to write hasgrown into an amateur career as a photographer and online publisher as well.I've had my writings published here in the Herald and always enjoyed the Post6! The chance of being here is really a shocking surprise that makes me feellike Karma is bringing it full circle.


Not only did Marilyninspire this magazine but she also introduced me to the most important personI've known in my Second Life: Sue Sands/Sue Spyker.  The night I metMarilyn, Sue was also there and we were instantly attracted.  In the timesafter that meeting we became friends, lovers and eventually partners. Through all these times, Sue has been my best friend and she is as been mybiggest supporter and I love her dearly for all she has done and what she meansto me.   

Thank youMarilyn, from the bottom of my heart.

    Thank you Bunny for this chance to be in Post 6. Marilyn, I know our meetings were very brief and mostly through a message board and in offline IM’s but you gave a spark of an idea that makes me thankful. I’ll always have a hug for you for that time we meet in-world again someday.
