this isn't on a permanent hiatus is it?

...the evil smuggling cartel was destroyed in a violent shoot-out with the police. The "cow of compliance" was a listening device, but also disbursed noxious gases that caused Sims near it to turn into mindless zombies. The zombie madness destroyed most of the inhabitants, and the others moved away. The End.

OK, not. But I needed closure. Maybe "SOMEONE" would like to add an alternate ending.

I apologize for my long break from storytelling--in addition to the many fun surprises in my family life, recently my computer took a dive so I have been laboriously replacing everything.

I think i mentioned my thumb problem before? It was actually broken, and because i didn't get it seen to immediately, it got worse, and i am still in a brace. Not fun, and hard to type.

I am not sure when i will be able to get back to actual posting, but the next chapter is "What happened to Daniel?" and I am working on it.

I will not abandon you!

To keep you posted--my hard drive crashed, which means all my saved pictures for the story were lost too. I have sent my hard drive to a computer expert friend, and he says he thinks he may be able to recover some, but it will take time. So, i can wait awhile, or reboot my Pleasantview and start over from scratch, trying to recreate all my original pictures and hosting them at a different image-hosting site. While I am not against doing that, it would be my least-favorite option as it may be really tough to get all the same pictures and I might have to change the story. So I'm still hoping the old ones may be recoverable, for a while, at least.

So in the meantime, now that my thumb is healed and I can compute again, I am going to begin work on the other story I have been planning, set in Riverblossom Hills. Once I have a definitive answer about my pictures for "A Pleasant Story," I will switch right back to it!

I love Sims storytelling and am anxious to resume!

Howdy! I am back to work on this! Chapter One has been recreated with pictures, and I am excited to get through all of them and continue the story!

Oh no, so sorry to hear about your computer troubles. I've been following this story and was sad to see it go on hiatus, but I'm happy to see that it may come back! It was really entertaining and reminded me of the TS2 exchange days back when people would play Pleasantview and post stories about their rendition of the neighborhood. I used to love those!

So glad you are enjoying it! I plan to keep on with it--am working on Chapter 8 right now. Thank you!

Sounds like you will be posting from the beginning; I need that, as it is all a blur now..

Yes! I have been working back through and re-creating the whole thing. I was moving right along and doing well when I did something that messed up my whole game. I tried to fix it and failed, so I had to restart the whole thing AGAIN! That takes a long time as i have all the secondary characters to re-create and all the relationships to establish before I can start the actual story.

So what I've done this time is to make a backup copy of the story at the very beginning so if anything happens again, i won't have to start from scratch.

So now I can get back to working on the Chapter 8 redo, and hopefully it will proceed smoothly this time!

Please don't point out if you notice anyone looks a little different from last time, lol--I didn't have pictures to work from to recreate the characters, so I was working from memory!

Brandi's first chapter should be up soon!

Well-written story. Rich plot and targeted overturns that make the story very interesting. Well done

What? You found her new version? And what is a "targeted overturn"?

No, sorry i don't. Overturn is when elements of the plot change unexpectedly. Such as Angela it was natural to go to Academie Le Tour but instead at the last moment she decides to go to La Fiesta Tech.

I just read through the whole thing to date - it's a shame the pictures are missing, apart from the first few chapters,, but it reads well even without them. Great work, and I look forward to the rest of the story, whenever it may continue.

I am still working on it--whenever I get a chance! And thank you for the kind words!
