A school for the ones who live in Second Life
A few important points
- Realism & Immersion: An approach of Real Play instead of Role Play, we’re a place where you can be yourself and interact genuinely with others.
- Discipline & Punishment: We have rules to hold discipline in place and creative varying punishments.
- Boarding: We have a strong boarding program, with 14 active boarders! Boarders are the Charlottes that live in our school at all times, and are our students everywhere they go to. They have a parent, in the form of the school
- Ballet and Dance classes, using our own Visual Learning system and Spot On
- S(R)L, our own idea, on opt-in basis, for anyone who wishes to extend some of the D/s world they live in, into their RL. Self spanking, following tasks etc, no proof required or privacy invasion more than you allow.
- Housing Staff or very involved students will get housing in the town
Second Life & Immersion
Charlotte Island and our School is founded on the idea that Second Life is a playground for our brain and fantasy.
We are aimed at people who seek in Second Life to express themselves or parts of themselves, not at characters or people that seek a purist Role Play environment with strict delimitation, unless you role-play yourself.
You would be a student because you want to relive your youth years in this perspective, because you crave a teacher-student kind of D/s relationship, or because you enjoy school and always feel like a student !
Kink-friendly: Posh Charlotte and staff might enjoy out of the ordinary activities, but such should be done subtle and not bragged about. But we are not a place where you can just dive in without firstly knowing the community, it’s what makes us a safe space.
While we do that, we still express our interactions here in an immersive and expressive way.
- We are a place where you’ll express yourself or parts of yourself.
- There is no strong IC/OOC separation here, or “I was only role-playing” excuse. We are not a full blown Role Play sim, but a place where lifestylers are welcomed.
- Expect realism, through emotes, visuals, movement, sounds and things happening how they would happen in Real Life.
Members Profile & School Profile
As SL inhabitants, we live in the present RL time period, we exists now and you interact with us in the current year.
Charlotte Finishing School is part of Charlotte Islands, a two regions big land and water, connected with the school. Charlotte Finishing School together with Alyona is owned by Queen Grace, while Boleyn Island is owned by Miss Clara Soffian, who is school deputy head. They are the Queens of the lands, and Charlotte Islands union are a well established Monarchy, not a democracy.
Miss Melanie is School Headmistress appointed by the school board, made from above mentioned.
We are a modern finishing school in the sense that we try to teach our students to have better manners and high society skills, like arts, social skills, dancing, how to mix colors 🙂 etc. We do not expect our Charlottes to be very uptight, but not trashy either. We curtsy, princesses curtsy but some of them were also pretty rebellious or naughty. We do not learn how to be good traditional wives, moms or dads.
Our staff can be strong and strict, or peculiar with their pet peeves, we also accept a wide range of personalities. It’s been heard that sometimes, some of them enjoy making a Charlotte’s life difficult, or that their integrity could seem to lack, but it’s just a way to express their nobleness :).
Our Charlottes can be spoiled, bratty, quirky, misfit, childish, sometimes rebellious or behaved and proper, striving to obey and please. As long as they understand that not following rules will have consequences, anyone is accepted.
Most of our Charlottes Students come from already disciplined families or relationships, so they are not stranger to punishment. Some of them might have developed a love hate relationship with them. Others might even flaunt their love for a spanking, which can always be punished in less pleasant ways as lack of shame. Our staff is equipped to find what works for every naughty Charlotte that decides to misbehave.
We are not a waywards or misfits school, a gangs place, a jail, BDSM prison or Sex School. We are not a religious place, a reform school, an American like High School.
We strive to educate in different ways.
We have classes with real content, and even classes like ballet offer learning movements through visual representation.
Beyond classes, we try to educate personality, decorum, being a better, polite person, in a way that should shape our Charlottes SL interactions, or even RL.
Charlotte is free but you will need to buy accessories for your uniform (tights, shoes, underwear), approved by the school. If you pass the quiz with 100/100 and you have financial issues, the school will discount them, if your involvement is certain.
You can enroll as Student, Maids, Teachers, other staff are all welcome. We can adjust and we are flexible, e.g. as staff you don’t necessarily have to teach.
Most active times are Europe evenings 12-3 PM SLT and Americas 5-8 PM SLT. We are spread on many time zones, and you should always strive to create your own fun and engage people at any time ! If your time zone is not active, join us and let’s make it active !
Sex is not forbidden, but we are not a sex place. Explicit sex, especially in public areas, is forbidden. Sex should be kept private, as most of the people do in First Life.
