Ratcliff & Bracket/Comma Islands: Another Link? (Another Link!) June 20, 2010

“Hi Hucka D. We must get cracking tonight.”

Hucka D.:

Thank you for inviting me back. I see you found the intimate relationship between Magicland and Ratcliff. They are one!

bb:

Amazing. In this post from June 12th, I put forth the new theory that the hole of Ratcliff was centered on Mickey’s Market instead of the middle of the back alley behind the central group of stores. I just used the little collage made the night before (6/11), superimposing Ratcliff with a massive sinkhole just formed in Guatemala City, to determine this — art/pictures influencing theory again.

But it was only when I returned from our vacation in West Virginia yesterday that I understood the Mickey Mouse head shape of the front of *Mickey’s* Market, after all. The same shape is found at the entrance to Magicland in Bracket, purposeful Mickey Mouse in that case.

Soooo… what’s up with this, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

What do you think?

bb:

I think there was a hole at Magicland as well, and that the two holes are really one hole.

Hucka D.:

That is right. Ratcliff was there as well. Or Ratcliff and Magicland at once. They are opposites combined into one. Like dissimilar tiles. The hole linked, the hole made each realize the presence of the opposite. This was a reaction to the wedding between the King of the Stans and the Brackage Queen as well. The hole was formed… Ratcliff and Magicland coexisted in the same psycho-physical space in Bracket/Sesia. More parallels can be found. Scout around each location!

bb:

I have a feeling if Bracket Jupiter kept hanging around Magicland, as he did tonight (he chatted a bit with a user playing the genie from Disney’s Alladin movie — see below), that he might get banned from the premises.

Hucka D.:

We’ll see!

bb:

What is the purpose of this hole?

Hucka D.:

To create a collage of opposites that can’t possibly be in Second Life, so a hole is created to First Life.

bb:

Within Magicland, I am in enemy territory, as they say.

Hucka D.:

Not any more than in Ratcliff[, though]. We must shift to the waters to the south of the Queen’s Island. (pause)

bb:

I suppose you want more of my own theories.

Hucka D.:

Give it a shot.

bb:

OK, I think there was a segment of the Queen’s people, the Brackage, that didn’t want the marriage between the Queen and King of the Stans to take place — which we now know opened the Bracket/Sesia hole.

Hucka D.:

We’re going to be talking quite a bit more about that hole. But continue…

bb:

The seas harbored the resistance movement to this union, which wanted the Brackage to stay separate from the Stans [still]. Mermen were involved; a bunker was found. And then, another really quirky twist, statues of the Queen were found in this sea, the most intact one immediately below the Fivepenny sim. Hold on…

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Houltbergen/168/135/5

I’ve included the SL map with the picture of the Queen’s statue. This is the same image used to represent the Queen in Wiltshire County, England, Hucka D. She appears there, for instance, in a collage made for this post from March, when The Bakers (Baker Blinker, Hucka Doobie, and Baker Bloch?) first discover the King and Queen’s whereabouts in this English county (Temple Farm). I didn’t know about this statue just off the southern shore when I also assigned the northern and western of the 2 Comma Islands to this same Queen’s reign. You were there, after all, in your bee avatar form.

Hucka D.:

Do not mistake this: I am still there (!).

bb:

At Temple Farm.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Both Baker Blinker and I are still in England, guests of the King and Queen. This same Queen and King.

bb:

Hmmmm… but it seems too coincidental that ujiyasu and I would both be attracted to that Fivepenny Hill and both hike up the hill to look around at the landscape.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

And there always seems to be a crowd of avatars around that hill, Hucka D. You can see all the little green dots [representing avatars] in that map just above. For the reader or readers, the Fivepenny Hill itself is represented by a gray, shaded part of the sim [in its southeast corner]. I take a picture of it here for this blog, and ujiyasu has it here.* Is Fivepenny Hill some kind of center for the resistance movement against the King + Queen union?

Hucka D.:

Yes. And still is [in ways].

bb:

Hmmm… and then the Queen’s intact statue only about 200-250 meters away in the Houltbergen water sim [marked by the yellow circle on the same map]. Looks like she’s staring not at Fivepenny Hill, though — which might be just *too* weird, after all — but directly perpendicular to this, at right angles to it, I mean.

Hucka D.:

The statue was turned away from the Fivepenny Hill at a certain point in the Comma Islands saga you are re-developing. This was to help break the resistance movement; a symbol of its bracking. Breaking, I meant. Instead it was turned to point to Corsica Prime.

*****

bb:

War never took place, you said. Between the 2 Comma Islands.

Hucka D.:

No. The King and Queen made sure of that. Or Queen and King. Instead a hole was formed. The Hole. Good work uncovering!

bb:

The Linden grid then passed through the Comma Islands safely to cover the rest of the Cosica continent. Much like ujiyasu is blanketing the continent presently from west to east in her [blog] journal. Fascinating.

Hucka D.:

Your Japanese friend is the Queen as well [in ways], as is Nish Mip. Fellow explorers, with different styles all. You must remind ujiyasu of Sachie [Bade]’s old realm in what you call Egg Hill Sink, mostly in Orion’s Vale, though. Corisca Prime is still Pennsylvania. That was a result of the hole as well. All this fits together like perfectly made tile. It all tiles. It All Tile. Corisca is a bit different from other SL continents in that Real Life or First Life peeks through more easily there. That’s because it is newer than most.

bb:

Thank you. Dawn is bracking and I guess we should end.

Hucka D.:

Have a good Monday.

bb:

You too, Hucka D.

*****

* And, yeah, in the map shot ujiyasu took for her blog, there are still a number of avatars next to this hill (!)
