I agree with what you said, Nat ^^

And I enjoyed that new chapter as usual :D

Good they won't have Olivia in the house anymore. Too bad Tate's not going away with her :/
Poor Carmella, good thing she'll escape that shitty deal :/

Poor Ed

Fuck guys, I'm really sorry to have to do this, but I'm going to have to call an indefinite hiatus to my updates. I've been dealing with some technical issues, and sending my laptop in for repair has actually made the fucking thing unuseable.

Basically, keyboard, usb ports and headphone jack all stopped working, and I was managing okay with one of the usb ports, giving it a nudge every now and then and using a four port hub for a wired keyboard and mouse. Now it's stopped working completely.

Housemate and I will be going back to the gibbons responsible tomorrow, but I'm not anticipating any kind of success with them, and will probably have to save up to get the ports replaced (a brand new laptop with enough memory, a dedicated card for TS3 etc is like £700+. Replacing the ports is £100 sooo). Housemate has been nice enough to let me use her laptop but unfortunately it doesn't even really run TS4 particularly well. That and plus getting all my CC and Sims on here would take literal days.

So yeah. I'm not calling it quits permanently, just for a while. I'm really sorry, I know it's been about a decade since my last update anyway, but you guys deserve to know.

I feel weird about "loving" the above post, since this is one of those where a "this sucks" button would be very appropriate. So just take the love for yourself, Bl00! Good luck with the gibbons.

You know, reading the Farrington backstory is a very emotionally mixed experience. On one hand, we know what's going to happen, and that things like Carmella's situation will turn out okay in the end. On the other hand, we know that Tristan, who's currently an adorable toddler, is going to have some real trauma in his teen years. Tate is going to kill at least one young woman in the future. And then there's knowing that what we're seeing in these updates isn't even half of it. All the characters that have managed to crawl out of the gutter at the present-day point are going through some really rough shit off camera.

..............................................................So it turns out I'm the gibbon.

There, uh, there's a third usb port that a) I literally somehow never noticed before and b) works. So crisis over. I'm fucking embarrassed.

I really appreciated this comment! It's been interesting revisiting this period, having more knowledge now of how things happened or will happen. There was a lot of forward-planning I really should have done the first time around, but I think things still come together in the end.

Sorry for the low-effort post. I've been away for a few days and I don't have anything ready yet. I'd hoped to, but then I had a couple of medical issues last week stressing me out (minor stuff though).

So after Nat took a pride picture of her characters, I decided to blatantly copy her join in with my own.





Decided to limit it to characters that've been in the story so far, barring one unfamiliar face that is very likely to appear at some point.

Enjoyed doing that, and it's highlighted a few gaps in my representation that need filling.

...And yes, Evijan's top reads "vagitarian". :P

My goldfish brain has forgotten who the ace-girl is, but this is an awesome picture. (Or did you mean that you included a character we haven't seen yet? I kind of read it as someone being missing from the picture, but we're pretty sure to see them in the future. One of those "English is my second language" blips.)

Poor Jin, she was the product of a phase her father went through. (And damn do I hope Evijan didn't come out feet first...)

I meant there's a character in the picture who isn't in the story yet, but is likely to appear at some point, so I included them anyway. And yeah, it's the ace Sim. Non binary too, but I struggled finding CC to represent that part of their identity.

lmao I imagine Saul as actually being bi, but yeah, he could've pretended to be straight for a while.

As for Evijan, well, probably not. But let's face it, head first wouldn't exactly have been easy on Evangeline either...!

*still doesn't have an update* In case anyone was wondering, Hazel wasn't born with horns.

Lucky Aosoth then!

...Hey, when did Hazel develop her pyrokinesis, anyway? Because I imagine Evijan and her sons were both able to breathe fire pretty much straight away. I'm amazed Evangeline didn't go bald from stress.

I don't remember if I've said it before but Aria reminds me a lot of me. And that was pretty much how my eighteenth birthday went too, at least the parts I remember, the details are thankfully blurred by lager (which I haven't touched since) and anno domini. The best thing about the past is that it is the past.

Sorry I've not been very active here lately, I've had family issues to worry about, and although I've tried getting on with my own story, my heart hasn't been in it. But I haven't given up, It's just taking longer than usual.

And sorry too Nat for my delay in commenting on your recent posts.

I have to say that, although she's a thoroughly loathsome woman, Olivia has to go up at least a couple of points in my esteem. Because anybody who would do a thing like that, simply to piss Tate off has to get my vote.

Carmella is so cute!

Charon is cute too. Love his pyjamas.

Aww man, sounds like a disaster. Thanks for sharing that. I'm glad Aria didn't come across unreasonable.

Thanks linesa Them tracking him down was definitely a good thing. And congratulations to France on their World Cup win!

Now, what I don't have is a proper update. But after some development hell, I finally finished a prose piece:
