Laetizia Coronet

And thanks to you for making it into a remarkable story! I shouldn't say this as a store owner but there is a lot of truth in what Chav says. Some people are too serious about their Linden balances. What fun will SL be if you bring RL financial stress into it?

Torley

Oh the lovely culture! Great writeup, Hamlet, and cool connection, Laetizia. I have a lot of admiration for putting people together when there are stories like this to tell.

/me wonders if Chav Paderborn and Arcadia Asylum, also of the hobo-waif persuasion and steampunk inclinations, would be good friends.

Pavig Lok

Meh, Arcadia and Chav are as different as chalk and cheese. They just both short feisty prolific builders. Urching be a good way to create your own sl personality as it's not got the established vamp/lycan/fur/victorian/gangsta/etc cultural baggage to adhere to.... and being small (contrary to popular media lately) you don't get asked for the sex a lot. If you want to focus on being creative in sl I think both Arc and Chav would agree that even tho that might not be the primary reason for urching, it's certainly a bonus.

Hobo Mister Hansup

Chav speaks for so many in SL who seek the joy inworld; and who remember that the greatest potential for profit here is of the spirit, not the wallet. Should you ever have the great fortune to meet her just remember; cr*p like that first line will just get her riled. Seriously, don't PO any urchin, most of them can script you head off.

Borba Spinotti

I reckon Mister Hansup has said it all in the phrase "the great fortune to meet her". There is a lot of joy to be had from fellow residents involving neither sex nor money, nor even the shadow economy of "celebrity". Speaking as a hobo who likes free entertainment though, I'd watch a riled Chav any day!

Anna

That must have been a long time before I met her! She's tall alot now.. though she does miss bein' small, or does she... anyways, CHAV IS AWESOME :D
