Bright Metallic Flickr Group

Bright Metallic Flickr Group

The Bright Metallic Flickr group is photos of cyberpunk, science fiction, dystopian, futuristic avatars and places in virtual worlds. It’s a community group meant for everyone to post pictures of their avatar, places, and creations.

The Flickr group is important to the magazine because it is where we discover new people to meet and talk to and find out more about what they like. The heart of a ‘zine is collaboration, and the Flickr group is a great base to start from. If you would like to participate in the in-world HUD ‘zine Bright Metallic, send Mirage Plaid a note in world and add to friends.

More human than human, is our motto. Christiana is an experiment.

Let’s Light this Candle!

Introducing Bright Metallic, a new science-fiction in-world magazine featuring articles, events, photography from residents in Second Life.

Each issue has stories from some of the most imaginative minds in SL that span the realms of sci-fi, dystopia, futuristic, industrial and cyberpunk genres new and old.

Do you have a story to tell? Or do you like to take photographs of great places?
We want you, Citizen!

Bright Metallic was founded by people who love science fiction and who were drawn to Second Life, making manifest Snow Crash, Bladerunner, Dune, and many other influential works from the genre’s authors and artists.

From power suits, mechs to time portals, space penal colonies and alien hybrids, the grid has many places to explore and the ships, gear and people to do it with made by residents who also share in that vision.

We explore places that we are curious about. Eject from the normal and return shiny with crystallized hope, or dwell in the darkness of mind and deep space where we are reminded of our immortality. Point your ship toward the buoy on the horizon that extends your journey here in this metaverse, if only for a little longer.

Send a note to Mirage Plaid if you would like a piece of the action and thanks for your interest.
