Magdalenamarie Cooperstone — Post 6 Grrrrl

by Alphaville Herald on 27/04/11 at 1:46 am

 [The other day I got a "Hey, you should meet....she'd be a great model for you" from a reader and I followed up and had the good luck to meet Magdalenamarie Cooperstone, the beautiful and intelligent avatar to whom our reader referred me. During her shoot, I also got to meet a half dozen other remarkable avatars that make up her friends and family, raising our tipster-reader to "Timothy's hero." While I hope Magdalenamarie will encourage her friends and family to join us as Post 6 Models, let me please first say that it is an honor to begin with the person around whom they all seem to revolve; it is a great pleasure to introduce Magdalenamarie as this week's Post 6 Grrl. ~Timothy Morpork]

Magdalenamarie Cooperstone Final 1

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we all have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.” – Charles R Swindoll.

I think of myself as the mother from “Malcolm in the Middle”, tough when I have to be, but there is never a moments question whether or not it’s out of love. I keep my SL family close to me, as if they were my RL family. Friends will come and go, you know someone is family when they are one of those people who come and don’t go. Those are the people I surround myself with.

Magdalenamarie Cooperstone Final 2

I roleplay, medieval fantasy, and that is the roots which lead to my avatars look. I started out as a drow, a dark elve, but then married the king of the Elves, and became a High Elve. From there I ruled for a while, but all dawns must have a dusk. Soon night spread over that chapter of my life, and the day began to shine on the next chapter, and I moved on. I became the Demon Queen of Aglarond, and the look just sort of stuck with me. The purple hair, the purple eyes, the horns, they are all trademarks almost, they are who Magda is. It’s funny when I think back about it, Magdalena almost put herself together, I was just the hand moving the mouse around. She came into manifestation, and has remained the same since, going from fantasy to steam punk, to Victorian. Magdalena has made her name in these realms, and has since retired, that part of her story has finished. Now I spend my days with my wonderful sl husband.

I also have a couple alts for when I need an escape. They are each different parts of my personality, each one a shard of who I am sent out into virtual space to thrive. Each one makes their name in a different way, almost in an effort to match up to the name made by Magdalenamarie.

    Medieval roleplayer with wings and a tail that considers her SL family to be equivalent to her RL one and spends all her time with her SL husband. Sappy write-up composed mostly of a paragraph quote that seems completely unrelated to the article (except for my attitude in this comment). Oh, and she wears a snake, has totally-black skin, tattoos, purple hair, horns, and is an elvish demon queen that also roleplays in steampunk and victorian sims. Two pictures with the same backgrounds hidden by messing with the windlight settings and the other in a corner of a room with a glow-obsessed light, an unframed painting of sorts with no contrast with the wall, and an Ouija board.

    Christ. Sorry Timothy, but if this is the standard of people you work with, I don’t know if I want to be associated with these folk.

    Dear dumbass, she’s kick ass. You clearly don’t know anything that your talking about, how can you go about judging someone from a five paragraph write up? you are jumping to conclusions without any good reason. Why not go troll somewhere else, no one is buying your “sophisticated character critique” bullshit. have a great day and dont forget to smile, other people shouldnt have to know that your obviously all sorts of depressed inside.

    Mags you are wonderful no matter what color you are. Beautiful inside and out ! As an avid role player myself I find you quite imaginative and fun to interact with.. Always a pleasure to be your friend my dear. Nelson are a bore and you shouldn’t talk…the weenie pic is atrocious…they do make those to look like they are actually attached to you ya know! You sound like one of a million second life walking stiffs if you ask me.

    I had to check the name; from the pictures I thought, for a moment, it was a friend of mine. Thankfully not.

    “The purple hair, the purple eyes, the horns, they are all trademarks…”. Sweetie I think your trademark has been violated. While beautiful that avatar has something of an off-the-shelf feel to be. But then I know of half a dozen other demon and devil queens with almost exactly the same look. Two of them are close friends of mine and I’m sure both of them are far more interesting than Ms Cooperstone.

    In the immortal words of Sgt. Hulka, “Lighten up, Francis.” She seems to be representing who she is in an honest and forthright manner and providing a glimpse of her personality and the life she leads here. Trying to demean her looks, invalidate her relationships with people in SL and critique the photos represented in this post seems both unwarranted and unnecessary, particularly from someone who has a vendor ad for a profile picture. If I was Timothy, I would take your desire to “not be associated with these folk” as a perfect opportunity to associate instead with people who would never post such a thing but would, perhaps, appreciate the time and effort involved in this post, and respect those involved and the work they do.

    I am close friends with Magda, and honestly guys, you’re making horrible mistakes. You shouldn’t be judging her, she never said she was original. She’s different. You don’t see her everyday. No? Why all the negativity? For real? is that all you have to do? Come on, she put a lot of work into her avatar, and shes really proud of it, and its extremely well done. Why not say something nice, instead of try to rip someone else down, ya know? It’s sad to me that you feel the need to do something like that. Magda’s an awesome person, an even more amazing friend, and she’s deserved something like this for years. For those of you unfortunate enough not to know her, and those even more unfortunate enough to have made comments before you knew her, i feel badly for you.

    I’m thinking it’s the latter. Maybe you should consider that possibility. Just a suggestion.

    Doing Post 6 is not too dissimilar to doing a public reading of the Lords Prayer at a Satanists ritual sacrifice convention after last orders at the bar on a Saturday night.
    Timothy gave me a notecard to explain this to me before pictures were taken for my shoot, and i have no reason to think any other victim.. err.. Model, would have been treated any differently.

    It’s traditional to Troll post 6.

    the post 6 commentary is the social behavior of the internet in one tidy nutshell…someone dares to stick their neck out just a little and place themselves in a position of vulnerability, and then a bunch of chickenshit losers throw tomatoes at them from the safety of anonymity, thereby giving them a sense of control within their desperate lives.

    I thought these pictures were cute =]

    Dear Hater Dumbasses,

    The Avatar is *not* the person. Jeez, give them a break will ya.

    SL families hurt me. Unless you know each other IRL, it’s shocking that you have such a strong connection to an anonymous loser on the internet. Oh well, I guess I’m just not part of the Facebook Generation where everyone just trusts each others profiles and shies away from actual interaction.

    i know her since years by now. it was for sure not always easy with our relation. but i love her. her char changed so many times and yes, even if she was medieval, steampunk or what ever kind of bitch. she was mostly herself in all that time. and it is something not many can say about themselves. sl is a fantasy.. a place where ur dreams can come true and u can escape from reality. i think no matter what, she did a good job with her avatars and her lil world. to call her friends that stay close family and put her next or close to her rl is nothing bad imo. it just shows that she cares for those ppl that sit behind the screen. it is in all of us, rl is rl and as it says its real. sl is a thing u can live ur dreams. but it doesnt mean u have to be anonym when u do not feel like that.
    well, the demoness magdalena. she has a reputation not much want to have. but it is ok, bad girls need love too!

    From one violet eyed girl to another, I think Magdalenamarie is lovely, and that opening quote is great.

    And the pictures aren’t that bad comparitively…all in all, a very nice Post 6.

  33. Rawst Berry

    Apr 29th, 2011

    While I agree with Nelson’s analysis of this Post 6, I have to say that his article a while ago was even worse. A furry who tries to distance himself from other furries by wearing a human penis and proclaiming he does not have a fursona is not special or unique. It’s extremely common.

  34. Nelson Jenkins

    Apr 29th, 2011

    @ Rawst Berry

    Okay, I’ll just let it out.

    I don’t masturbate to furry porn.

    There, I said it. I’m not a furry. All furries, no matter what they tell you, masturbate to furry porn. I do not. I’ve long gotten over the teen years and the concept doesn’t even occupy a fleeting thought in my mind.

    At least I employed a bit of sarcastic humor. This is just droll and stereotypical.

  35. Bunjie

    Apr 29th, 2011

    @Nelson Jenkins Denial, it’s a hell of a town.

    I’m with @Rawst Berry you can try to distance yourself all you want with a human cock and what ever explanation but no ones going to believe it, this site is a world of stereotypes and even though you appear to be immensely popular here, (popularity is fleeting) I doubt anyone believes your statements like,

    “I don’t masturbate to furry porn.”


    “I’m not a furry. All furries, no matter what they tell you, masturbate to furry porn.”

    Let me put it this way, if you’re employing stereotypes & mind games against furries on this site and pushing the idea in general we’re all into yiff, then it should not be hard for you to understand why we don’t believe you, and why we would likely never believe you.

    But putting stereotypes to one side let me enter this link as evidence to help boost your “sarcastic humor” point of view on “All furries, no matter what they tell you, masturbate to furry porn.” , even though we can’t tell what your sarcastic humor relates to, is it that you don’t believe it and wont be able to believe it because you’re burying your head with self-denial about who you really are, or was that sarcastic humor related to your whole statements? or are you referring to your post 6 and this is an actual statement you believe?

    I’ve had friends like you, whom say they wore the avatar “only because they liked the species or the style”, do you know what the outcome was every time? they came out as furry, so enjoy your closet safety while it lasts, oh and might want to copyright that fursona idea, would hate to see other furries pick up on the idea of an anthro avatar with a human cock it might just break the traditional mold of a fursona, /end sarcasm? /start sarcasm .

    If you’re the intelligent person you seem to be, why the whole animal get up? I’ve not read your post 6 as I can’t be arsed + as you say yourself

    “At least I employed a bit of sarcastic humor” and at the end of the day it only came down to your cock.

    You obviously know you’d be branded and stereotyped due to the nature of Second Life and this site, though from my point of view I can only see it from the side the PN came from where they deliberately used Afro-American avatars to taunt and harass people, so is that what you’re doing? trolling by default?

    “At least I employed a bit of sarcastic humor. This is just droll and stereotypical.” was this before this comment because I can’t tell what your angle is really anymore, the whole vortex of sarcastic humor laced with stereotypical statements aren’t processing at this point, unless your getting off on it and what you say is true

    So let me be the first to say what people here think, no offence but perhaps we’re thinking you really mean: “I don’t masturbate to furry porn.” Because I like dress up as a furry in a virtual world so I can masturbate while others brand me subject me to the harassment furries usually are subjected too, but because I’ve gone soft I’ll use denial as a weapon of choice and distract them with a human penis so as not to be subjected to drama longer than I can masturbate for.

    (Just fucking with ya lul, why so serious?)

    Beautiful avie, boring pics and, worst of all, absolutely shockingly shallow writeup. Where does Mr Morpok always find those intellectual dwarfs? Oh right, stupid question – he finds them in SL where there are more than enough of this type.
    I will look at this Post 6 from now on when I’m about to log off for the night but can’t find sleep.

  37. Nelson Jenkins

    @ Bunjie

    Ow, my head hurts from you repeating my comment 20 times. Also, denial is a river in Egypt.

    I genuinely wish that infographic was true, but the study was conducted by, and for, furries. In fact, the statistics given seem to be from an internet survey with no limit on the number of submissions. What kind of furry would assure that sex is extremely important to them when they know full well that those results are going to be publicized, and their goal is to make the furry fandom less creepy? As for the art statistics, a lot of furry artists simply cannot draw adult art because 1.) they are too young and can’t submit it to FA, 2.) they don’t know how to draw dicks so they just stick to regular stuff, or 3.) they can’t draw for shit so just end up commissioning a few regular drawings, which they submit themselves. Not to mention a lot of adult artists spend a lot of time drawing PG art as well – sure, they don’t draw cocks 100% of the time, but the bottom line is they are involved in the furry porn “industry”.

    tl;dr the statistics you quoted are questionable at best, and irrelevant at worst.

    I’m going to sleep off this beer and hope I don’t have to wake up tomorrow morning to another bullshit “you’re a furfag hurp durp i trol u” comment whilst battling a hangover.

    Oh give me a break. SL=/= RL.

    Their nice photos(the graphics look good for SL standards, too good)but does all this avatar’s ‘supporters’ have to spam this forum of how great this avatar is, and one different opinion sends them hopping all over this page? The literature looks like a biography more than an article and the quotes almost serve as a cover-up for a topic that’s loosing itself. An avatar sharing what they role-play in SL under the Post 6 Models feature page and her ‘associates’ lame drama in the comment section ruins the theme here.

    What was done above was a criteria of opinion, not a foot-handling comment which Slers are so use to having in Second-Life. To expect total strangers to somehow “know” what it is “all about” on a open forum of one avatar is absolutely silly. Be glad your friend had the opportunity to be hosted on this Post 6 Model section and move on.

    @Orca, I can understand why the writeups are short and plain. I am sure I would sound totally daft if I should write a bio for post6. I think that the pictures should do the talking.
    When I log into SL, my brain is mash, I have worked full time in a stressful job, cooked and cleaned after work. I just let my breath out and sink down in front of the laptop or stationary. Write a Pulitzer-prize winner? Give me a break. It is also hard to think in a different language when you have 1-2 hours left of an stressful day.
    Ok, back to the pictures. I often say negative things about them, but not this time. Timothy has done a better job on this post, and on Nelsons pictures. There are a few things I would do different, like the last picture where I really like the background and the pose. But the right edge is a bit overexposed. Small stuff. I give the pictures a strong 8 of 10.
    The avatar looks good, surely she is not unique but who is. We are all influenced by things around us. And this purple Demoness has a good shape and know how to pose.

    Hey Nelson, why did you buy a cock for your avatar if you don’t have sex on SL? If you do have sex on SL, you know that in the end your masturbating irl to a furry having sex on your screen?
    Let me guess: you just ran out and bought a cock for post 6 because you were so eager for the attention you didn’t mind buying something you would never use.

  42. Oh noes

    May 1st, 2011

    Sounds like you were trying to be deep by swirling in lots of meaningful sayings and whatnot into what is still a rather dry peace of material. Don’t feel too bad, it’s probably because you’re stupid and have no idea how to write something interesting.

  43. Nelson Jenkins

    May 1st, 2011

    @ Rawst Berry

    Just because I have a cock in SL doesn’t mean I have sex. Just like how you have one in RL, but you don’t have sex either. Oh, sorry, I was making an over-arching generalization about trolls typically being virgins (just like how you were making an over-arching generalization about people with furry avatars typically being internet whores!)

  44. Oh noes

    @ Marianne:
    Bio? Nobody wants to read boring bios of boring avis. We wanna know what they do in SL, their activities, their usefulness.
    If your bain is mashy after a long day in RL work – don’t write something for an article which is going to be published and read by millions (we are milllions, aren’t we?)

    But you’re right, a Post 6 is about the piccies. Who cares about what some more or less undressed bimbo thinks anyway. Dunno why I’m still so crestfallen when I see that many Post 6 models are falling exactly into the stereotype preconception of stupid amateur models.

  47. paul

    May 2nd, 2011

    @ Orca… if no one cares about Bios, why do you think that millions of readers care that you are going to log off for the night after reading it? Are you that important? Are you that useful? What is wrong with being an amateur model in a video game designed for role play? Is it any stupider then being an amateur pixel sailor?

    You are obviously new here…

    The only thing bigger than the pixel sea is Orca Flotta’s ego. She really believes that people find her to be interesting and smart and that the readers here care what she has to say. She’s a complete tool, ignore her, or troll her, but don’t ever take her seriously.
