And so, sadly, another icon of the Bloodlines heritage on SL has come to an end.
As of Saturday, the Eternal Flames clan under toniaatje Jupiter has come to an end. She has lieged under Morag of the Fallen Ones clan and merged both these clans.
Now, some may say this is just wrong but after a conversation with toniaatje Jupiter (Biatch) I can see the reasoning for this move. She used to spend a great deal of time online working her Eternal Flames clan and this took a great toll on her RL. Now, her RL has had some major changes… engagement to the love of her life means spending more time in her RL, her children and other concerns also make her online time more limited.
She was feeling she was “short changing” her clan members and needed to find a good way to ensure they had a stable clan to belong to that still adhered to her and their ideals. She found this in her long time friends, Morag and Lib. So she did the best thing for HER people and after some long discussions with Morag and Lib, came to a mutual agreement that benefited BOTH groups.
I applaud B for her move. For her “vision” of putting not only her but her clan’s needs first. It’s a hard thing to go from being number 1 in Bloodlines, the clan that has always been strong and had steady growth to accepting the realities of RL as opposed to SL. I applaud and commend her. As usual… she has proven why she and her clan have always been strong and a major aspect of life in Bloodlines and SL.
Take good care of these people Morag… Lib. You have been given a major honour and with these members, gained more than was offered. Cherish them, nurture them, let them know that the standards created by EF will continue in the Fallen Ones. That they will not be just numbers as in most “mega-clans”. You have gained many talented and loyal people. Let them know you respect them and their ideals.
“And out of the ashes, a NEW and more vibrant force awakens”…..and all will be watching…….always watching…
