Where the lines overlap

Round 6 - Spring 2037 - LBU
Taesha Foster and Gordon Nott are 20

Tracing patterns across a personal map
And making pictures where the lines overlap
Where the lines overlap
No one
Is as lucky as us
We're not at the end but
Oh, we already won
Oh no, no one
Is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us

Taesha had entered her second trimester and she was getting a little nervous. It had been a tough pregnancy for her and she had missed quite a few days of class. She would be lucky if she didn't have to repeat the semester the way things were going for her.......

Misguided Ghost - Part II

Round 6 - Spring 2037 - Blasts from the Past
Elvin de Muse is 44, Tessa is 40, Vanya is 1

Now I'm told that this is life
And pain is just a simple compromise
So we can get what we want out of it
Would someone care to classify
Our broken hearts and twisted minds, so I can find
Someone to rely on
We are just
Misguided ghosts
Traveling endlessly
The ones we trusted the most
Pushed us far away

Tessa was going to kill him. And for him, that was even scarier than Gurth Vasan. He had no idea how he was going to tell her that once again, because of him, things in their life were about to be turned upside down......

Misguided Ghosts - Part I

Round 6 - Spring 2037 - Blasts from the Past
Elvin de Muse is 44, Vanya is 1 

Now I'm told that this is life
And pain is just a simple compromise
So we can get what we want out of it
Would someone care to classify
Our broken hearts and twisted minds
So I can find someone to rely on
We are just
Misguided ghosts
Traveling endlessly
The ones we trusted the most
Pushed us far away

It's a weeeee bit long :)

So this was where the great Elvin de Muse, Prince of Vasadori, lived? A tiny house on the beach? How far the mighty had fallen! He knew that Austra had not had a chance to warn Elvin of his presence. He wanted to take him completely by surprise. He couldn’t wait to see the look on his face, couldn’t wait to see the color drain as he realized that the lies he had been living for the past fifty or so years were coming to an end…….

Round 6 - Winter 2036
Gavin Newson is 21, Ginger is 16, Gallagher is 7, Gabriella is 5, Georgia and Garrett are 4 (Caleb Henderson, Ricky Cormier, and Meadow Thayer are 16, Jean Mahesh is 14)

I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay a while and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

She knew it wasn't right. And she felt horrible about it. But sometimes, she just needed a break. It was tough living in a house with 5 other people, four of which were under the age of ten. She was going insane. So as soon as Gavin got home, she took a cab to The Spot, LaQuest Beach's teen hangout.

Blasts from the Past

I've had a bunch of side stories sitting in my head for a while now and I've decided to incorporate them into this round. I suppose it will be much like the different chapters that Laura does at Lakeside Heights, although I don't plan for this to be a regular thing. I really just want to flesh out some of my characters a little. I guess that's kinda what she wants to do to :). Anyhow these are situations that couldn't possible just happen in game without my help so it's more of the story telling aspect of my blog. These stories won't affect everyone, but many character's lives are going to change. I'm calling this "Blasts from the Past" because in each situation, these characters will encounter important people from their pasts. I've already began one of the stories with Elvin and Lorelai. These won't be resolved in one round, but they won't drag on either :). So here are the Blasts from the Past:

Elvin de Muse & Lorelai Ellison - Elvin de Muse was once a prince of Vasadori, but his family was not of noble blood. A tragic civil war and nasty betrayal lead to his title of prince. Gurth Vasan, a very angry and very dark elf, wants to reclaim his birth rights and correct old wrongs. Lorelai is simply an innocent bystander that may become caught up in a battle hundreds of years in the making.

DeJuan Foster - DeJuan Foster fell in love with Charday Martin the very moment that he saw her. He knew that she was wild and not really the settling down type, but he couldn't help it. Once Taesha was born, DeJuan wanted to marry Charday and move out of Englewood with her and his daughter. Charday had other plans and had no intentions of living some boring, dull life in the suburbs. She left Englewood and LaQuest Beach and never looked back. DeJuan raised Taesha on his own and didn't date again until he met Donna Johnson. The two fell in love and married, combining their families. Now Charday is back, for reasons unknown.........

Terrence Coners - Terrence thought that marrying Allison Tavem was the greatest thing he could ever do. She was beautiful and sophisticated and made him want to do better. They had Kenny and everything was great. Until Allison decided that Terrence wasn't making enough money to keep her comfortable. So she left him and Kenny, sending divorce papers through the mail. Terrence was crushed and turned to his friend, Tabitha Gunner, for comfort. She helped him deal with his heartache and he helped her realize how beautiful she was, despite her size. Time went on and Terrence and Tabitha fell in love and had a set of twin girls together. Terrence has been featured in the LaQuest Beach Times quite a bit for his work on many of the new buildings in LaQuest Beach and somehow word has gotten back to Allison..........

*I'm actually creating an entire history for Vasadori. It's just for me, just something I've been wanting to do, but I may post it. I've mentioned Terrence and DeJuan's ex's before and I think it's time we met them. I don't have every detail planned out and my sims can still change the story through their actions. I'm interested to see what happens with Terrence's story. Tabitha has this new found confidence in herself and I think Allison may shake that up a bit. And Donna is a very calm woman, but I think she may give Charday a run for her money!

* I'll add a tag to all the entries concerning this stories in case someone wants to just read through them later. I've already created Gurth, Charday, and Allison in bodyshop. Charday and Allison are altered versions of Taesha and Kenny. I wanted there to be some family resemblance since they are suppose to be their mothers. I don't know if any of them will become regular characters at this point.

Troubles on the Horizon

Round 6 - Winter 2036 - Mini Update
Place: Vasadori

"I'm pregnant! Can you believe that, Austra? Me, pregnant!" Lorelai exclaimed.
"That is most wonderful. I was already aware of your pregnancy. As were the elders."
"What? Why would the elders care about me being pregnant?" Lorelai asked.
"That is where it gets a bit complicated........."

Everytime I close my eyes

Round 6 - Winter 2036
Last update/ Next update
Jacob Ellison is 37, Lorelai is 31 (Kimber Henderson is 44, Adam Broaden is 22)

It feels like spring time in winter
It feels like Christmas in June
It feels like heaven has opened up
Its gates for me and you
And everytime I close my eyes
I thank the Lord that I've got you
And you got me too

Well it was official. Lorelai and Jacob were going to be parents! She was so excited, but so scared at the same time. When the doctor called her to tell her the good news, she almost dropped the phone! She was going to be a elf mom.......

Happy BELATED Birthday to Ya!

Being the horrible simgod that I am, I completely forgot to include the youngest Newsons in my Fall 2036 birthday post. Terrible, I know! But here they are in all their twindom :)

Georgia Newson is now four years old and is very excited about starting school. She's been cooped up in their tiny home in Fort LaQuest for much too long! She's ready to get out and make some friends. She is a very outgoing and active child.

Her twin brother, Garrett Newson, is much more shy than his sister, but he is also a lot nicer as well! He too is excited about school. The house is always so busy with the six of them living there.

* All of the Newson kids have this weird thing going on with their eyelids which is strange since the only two that are actually related are the twins! And why oh why did Maxis have poor little Gabriella painted up like a hooker? When Georgia aged up, she too was wearing make-up! I think four may be a bit young for pounds of blush and eye shadow :/.....On another note, I think Garrett is going to grow up to be quite the cutie!

* I think I forgot about these two because I haven't played the Newson house much since I only added them in this past round. I'm sure I'll get better into the swing of things. I've updated all their profiles with current pics (quite a job since there are 6 of them!)

School Yard Antics

Round 6 - Winter 2036 - LBE
Last update/ Next update
Principal/Teacher: Lorelai Ellison, 31; Pre-K: Connor Gray, Ryan Knowles; Grade K: Javion Carr, Gabriella Newson; Grade 2: Kayden Carr, Gallagher Newson; Grade 4: Imani Coners, Imara Coners, Kali Knowles; Grade 6: Christa Brown, Raven Vance

Lorelai had to admit that she had been a bit nervous after meeting little Connor Gray and speaking with his parents. She didn't buy their silly story of little Connor having a skin disorder that caused his skin to be a pale, sickly green. Being something other than human herself, she knew when something wasn't quite right. She was concerned how the other kids would take to his differences but so far he fit in quite nicely. In fact, he and fellow pre-schooler Ryan Knowles seemed to be getting along fairly well.....

Happy Birthday to Ya!

Round 6 - Winter 2036

Only one birthday this time!

Vanya de Muse is 1 this winter and is looking very much like her mother Tessa. Poppa Elvin is very proud of his little lady!

* I will admit now that Vanya is one of my favorite toddlers ever! She is the complete opposite of her mother with only 1 outgoing point! I'll be interested to see how their relationship develops as she gets older........I think Tessa might not be happy that her daughter is a wallflower......they may have a Tessa/Tabitha type relationship.
