You guys can ignore this. I just want to be sure I have the list somewhere that I won't lose it.

Part One
- Build/decorate hallways, classroom and perhaps cafeteria for high shool.
- Create a handful of teens for background.
- Transfer Aimee's house to new "Pleasantview".
- Redecorate Drake's ugly-ass room.
- Finish decorating interior of the restaurant in the BV General Store rebuild.
- Build/decorate a grocery store.
- Transfer a madeover maxis sim to new "Pleasantview".
- Build/decorate or download labyrinth garden.
- Create therapist.
- Build therapist's office.
- Create Desmond and find or make slim body builder recolors.
- Remove most of furniture and deco from Sloane's apartment.
- Finish decorating Angie's house.

Part Two
- Recreate the maxis sim's house (but change interior 'cause it is UGLY).
- Take photos of his son and create framed photos.
- Find a dark midsize sedan.
- Dump Erik sim into game.
- Find or make a male jacket with a wearable hood.

I guess now you know the update is actually going to happen! It's going to be weird doing all the posing again. Hope it'll be worth the wait!

I know I've said this several times over the long hiatus, but I finally feel like I know what to do in the next installment that will both make me happy with the new characters and the direction of the story. I haven't sat down to start writing these ideas yet (gaming and hormones are a killer!) but feeling good about it beforehand is a nice change. I find myself wanting to go in-game and make small changes to a few sets and re-familiarize myself with (new) Pleasantview. All the new 3to2 neighborhood deco floating around the web has me geeking out big time. Must. Make. Pleasantview. Pretty!

But in the meantime, have a Sims3 Sloane & Jesse with twin sproglets Eden and Silas.Collapse )

When the writing was not going well at all (honestly that covers several months) and I had decided to borrow George R. R. Martin's chapter format, I thought it might be more interesting if the headers were their own handwriting. While I could say nothing and let you see it whenever I finally update, I think I'd rather post a preview now. Because... reasons? I don't know.

More this way...Collapse )

Thanks to equuisntwilight for helping me look for alternative fonts when it wasn't quite right <3

Per the usual, the update is nowhere near ready. You already suspected that though, didn't you? I am, however, feeling like the writing is on the right path for the first time in months, so that's got to count for something. Once Sloane's last half is written and Drake's are readjusted for some minor changes I made, I'll have to take up a large chunk of the countryside for a horse farm I have no idea how to build. As far as I am aware all other structures that house scenes are complete. Desmond needs to be created (*shakes fist at bodyshop*), though.

Semi-related, I was thinking of doing some more behind the scenes stuff as I went along. Kind of a rebuilding "Pleasantview" thing, with info and photos of new lots, sims, and the new neighborhood itself. The plot shift required a change of scenery, after all, so I figured it was easier to move everyone than fuss with the original. Does that sound even remotely interesting?

So I will shut up now and walk the dog who is waiting rather impatiently beside me. Huskies. So much fun.

A while ago a friend of mine, who I guess is kind of my proofreader and general soundboard, read through the update and found herself a little confused initially when beginning each section. So I was wondering how many of you find yourself in the same boat, and if it should be changed to something clearer.

For example, George R. R. Martin breaks up chapters in Game of Thrones (for those who haven't read the series) by character perspective, with their name as the header. Would this interest you guys?

Is anyone else getting bombarded with spam comments lately? Holy hell, this is ridiculous.

Just wanted to let you know I'm taking a hiatus of sorts. I'm second guessing some of the update and it's probably why I've had little interest in working on scenes in a while. I've also committed to something that is going to take up a bunch of time and I really need to have it done for a certain date. Like usual I may have bit off more than I can chew.

Rest assured that I am not quitting.

Is anyone on my friends list good at making attractive but unique male sims? Particularly older, like 50ish? I need to create a bartender but he's not coming out well at all. He's one of those extremely nice types, the kind who treats everyone he meets as though they are family, and when you look at him you just know he's a really sweet, gentle man. I see him with glasses, graying blonde or light brown hair, and crows feet. When I tried to make him he just looked... wrong. More rough than old, you know? It's really irritating me that this is slowing me down. Hell, I'm not even entirely happy with Sloane's new african american friend. He seems rather plain, like something is missing. Poor Keith.

Now if I can just settle on Arlo's damn studio space...

And while I have you...Collapse )

FINALLY, I am finished writing. Now to slave over building, decorating and shooting pics. It'll be a while, though. This beast spans three parts and 45 pages.

Not sure if you remember my post around this time last year concerning Jesse's new look, but I have run into uncertainty about it. At the time I didn't have a particular set of eyes in my game (I'm not entirely sure they were even made) that are probably my current favorites, and now I wonder if maybe I should use them for our tattooed tough guy, or keep the ones I already made.

A little help please?Collapse )

Kayleigh poked at him and while I admit I was nervous, he came out looking exactly like he should considering the circumstances! Thanks Kay <3

It's taking forever, I know. 9 months is a really long time. Thankfully I've made some progress this week and am willing to share a small snippet. One more small section for Sloane, editing Drake's existing to have less teen angst (-.-), and then I'll round it out with his last. Not going to lie, it might be difficult to stretch his out because her is massive.

Snippet ahoy!Collapse )
