Kayden was completely and 100% done with girls. They were crazy! He had made the basketball team at school and was just going to concentrate on that and keeping his grades up so he could continue to play. He knew his parents would pull him off if his grades slipped...........

Round 9 - May 2043

The morning that Joanna went into labor was the scariest in Brian Johnson's life!
"We've got to get to the hospital," Joanna said.
"Should we move you though? I should just call an ambulance," Brian said.
"NO! Brian just get the car!"

We gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say 
Gotta live like we're dying

Raine and Ryder thought that having their mom as their teacher was going to be so much fun.......turns out your mother knowing exactly what your homework assignment is wasn't all that great! Mrs. Ellison was now teaching a separate class that allowed the twins to have a little space from their mom......things were much more peaceful now that this was the case!

Christian Brown knew he had screwed up. Royally screwed up. Things in their house had been strained since that fateful session with Mr. Nott. Christa was even more distant and Alana........Alana was slowly spiraling down and he didn't know what to do to save her........

I was hoping there could one day be, be a chance for me to
Get the love, that I been missing
Sometimes love, takes a long time
But wait for love, and you're gonna get your
Chance to love,
Wait for love, wait for love
Luther Vandross

For the first time in a long time, Mindi was on her own. She had been unsure of leaving the apartment with Tippy and Casey, but she knew that the two of them needed their space to begin their lives together. Her one bedroom apartment was a lot smaller than the one she shared with Tippy, but it was all hers.............

Sky Will Fall

Mellow Metal has finished recording their sophomore album and has released it to the masses :). Here's the cover:

 The guys are a bit more mature this time around and I imagine their sound reflecting that. I still haven't decided on the whole tour thing, but I know they will do a few shows this round for sure......maybe their tour will just be implied :).

And just because I like playing around in phototshop, I took a few extra pics which will more than likely become posters in my game:

Kenny Coners was content in his life. How could he not be? Mellow Metal was bigger than any of them could have ever dreamed. Their new album, Sky Will Fall, was finally done and they would do the photo shoot for the cover soon. They were staying busy and had even done a show in Port Manteau . Kayla had quit her job at the high school to focus on the grand opening of Picture This! and he was so happy for her. Things with his father and that whole situation were about as good as they were going to get for now. Yes, life was good. And while he was happy, he had been thinking of maybe adding to their family.........

He spends his mornings down by the beach. There weren't any beaches in Vasadori, it was one of the things he loved most about the human realm. The crashing waves had a calming effect on him. Maybe it was because it seemed that his life was crashing down all around him. He and Tessa were doing much better, but Gurth Vasan was never far away, using Arwen as an excuse to see Tessa. Elvin wasn't stupid, he knew that Gurth wanted to take Tessa from him. He wasn't going to allow it to happen............

Sitting Down With: Armand Wrightwood

By Joanna King

He is without a doubt THE most eligible bachelor in LaQuest Beach. He's extraordinarily handsome and obscenely rich. Yes ladies, we have none other than Mr. Armand Wrightwood on the couch today! 

SDW: Mr. Wrightwood, how are you today?

ARMAND: Please, call Armand. I have a feeling we will be getting quite personal today, no? (smiles)

SDW: Yes we will! You have been placed on lists with some of the richest men in the world. Please tell us a bit about how you amassed such wealth.

ARMAND: My company buys and sells failing businesses. If they are too far in the red, I break them up and sell the pieces. It is a business that has been in my family for two generations, with me being the third.

"I think you should do the honors," Gordon said nervously.

"I just don't see the point of all this! I am so tired of making room in my schedule to come down here and talk about the same shit all the time!" Christian exclaimed.
"Christian, we've been over this. Christa will be going off to college this year and I don't want her to leave with the way things are," Alana said sadly.
"I don't see what difference it makes. She wants to run off to New Barrington, she's not interested in doing anything but getting away from us," Christian said.

Cyrax creeped Celeste out in the beginning. Oh she knew it was silly, her whole family were beings from another planet. But Cyrax was just so........well weird. There were times when he seemed strangely human and Satitu always took that as a compliment to the artificial intelligence he gave Cyrax. Despite all of that, he was an excellent help with the girls.........

Tales of Vasadori: Sneak Peek 2

The semester is coming to an end and I'll finally get more playing time in. I'll also be able to get back to writing Tales of Vasadori. I've been reading back over what I previously wrote so that I can jump back into it and decided to give another snippet of the story. This bit gives some insight into Gurth and Tessa's relationship at this point:

Gurth Vasan was tired. His daughter would head off to start her future in a week’s time and he had been hard at work preparing for that. He knew that Arwen would be an excellent queen, even if she did not know it herself. He had groomed her over the years for her position, but she was headstrong like her mother. Her mother………Tessa de Muse was and always would be the only woman to capture his heart. A heart she did not want. Their relationship was very strained. She resented him for erasing her memory and getting her pregnant. Her anger was well understood and deserved. But they also shared an undeniable attraction to one another, an attraction she did her best to ignore. Over the years they had brief interludes when the attraction became too powerful to ignore. Elvin was unaware of these instances and Tessa refused to leave her husband. It was a very complex situation that Gurth had not expected to happen. His use for Tessa was not supposed to go beyond her giving birth to his heir. He never thought he would grow to care about her as a woman.
“Hello Tessa.”
“For goodness sake, Gurth! I’ve asked you hundreds of times not to pop in and scare me like that!” Tessa said clutching her chest.
“I’m sorry. I do not mean to frighten you.”
“Well you do! What are you doing here? You aren’t to come for Arwen until next week.”
“I know. I wanted to speak with you,” he said.
“If it’s not about Arwen, then we have nothing to talk about Gurth,” she said walking away. He reached out and grabbed her arm, pulling her to him.
“Don’t walk away from me, Tessa. I’ve accepted that you would rather deny what you feel for me than face the truth. I get that. But we both know how you feel,” he said.
“Look Gurth, I don’t know why we have this……..thing, between us. I don’t really care at this point. I’m married to Elvin,” she said.
“But you love me. You cannot tell me that you don’t. I can feel it, in here,” he said placing his hand over her heart.
“I don’t want to talk about this again! Why are you here, Gurth?”
He looked at her for a few moments before sighing and letting her go.
“There are things that I did not tell Arwen about her being queen. There are…….stipulations, that the elders have set in place. Things that I don’t think she will be happy about,” he said.
“Things like what, Gurth? She’s already nervous about going, must you make it worse? Can’t this wait?” Tessa asked.
“I suppose it could……..she will not be pleased about them. She is, after all, your daughter,” he said with a smile.
“She’s a tough kid. She gets that from me as well. What things did you not tell her?” Tessa asked.
“Well, the most pressing issue is that she is to have an arranged marriage once she becomes queen. And they have chosen her husband for her.”
“What? Why would they care who she marries? She’ll be surrounded by elves, what difference does it make which one she chooses?”
“Because they are afraid……..of me. The elders are afraid of a repeat of the past. Arwen is half dark elf and they are afraid that if she marries another dark elf, it will be a repeat of when my father ruled. So their solution is to require that she marry a light elf so that there will always be balance,” he said.
“But an arranged marriage? She’s definitely not going to be happy about it,” Tessa said.
“I know. But my hands are tied right now. Trust me, I am not please by the idea of my daughter marrying a light elf. I don’t think he will be able to handle her,” Gurth said.
“And just what the hell does that mean?”
“That…….that’s what I mean. She’s so much like you, so headstrong. She will need someone in her life that can manage her when she is being unreasonable, not make matters worse. I am hoping that once she arrives the elders see that she is not a threat. She will be a wonderful queen no matter who rules at her side. She’s a dark elf true, but she is also human. And that side of her is more good than any light elf could wish to be. Because of you,” he said softly.
“I know what you’re trying to do, Gurth. It can’t happen again. It won’t. I’m married to Elvin, and I will be until the day I die.”
“Regardless of how you feel for me? Of how you feel when we’re together?” Gurth asked stroking her cheek.
“Yes. You and I were never meant to be. A crazy series of events just threw us together. I made a vow to Elvin, and I intend to honor it,” Tessa said.
“How can you say we were not meant to be? The birth of our daughter was prophesized centuries ago! You can remain married to him, but your heart will always belong to me. And there is not a damn thing you can do about that. I’ll be back in a few days to prepare Arwen for her trip,” Gurth said as he backed away from her. As she watched him disappear in a blaze of golden light, Tessa knew he was right. She would always have deep feelings for Gurth Vasan. But as her daughter would soon learn, sometimes life didn’t care about how you feel. You just play the hand you’re dealt and hope for the best…….

Getting Into Grad School

After seeing this post by Carla, I realized I needed to design better rules for attending uni, as I had none lol. I'm basically using Carla's system for the undergrads so you can click on the link above to read about that. I decided to take it a step further and create a system for my sims who seek to earn a degree above the undergraduate degree. You can click on the "Education in LaQuest" link to the right for more info on the master's program. Below are my shiny new requirements for grad school admittance:

Brian Johnson and Joanna King are 28 

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don't wanna mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby, I'm alright with just a kiss goodnight

Brian had always wanted to live by the beach, but growing up in Englewood made that impossible. He knew how lucky he was to be WHERE he was. Fate had finally shined down upon his family after kicking them in the teeth for so long. Things were really tough after his father died and his mother struggled a lot. But now she had DeJuan and a nice house in Talum Heights, his sister was married to a doctor and had her own house on the beach and a successful boutique, and he was in a band he loved that allowed him to purchase the house he had always wanted..............

Round 8 Summary

Births: Andromeda Oros, Miranda Picaso, Joss Willis, Jasmine Oros, Payton Newson, Logan Phillippine,

Weddings: Tippy Dean & Casey Addler

Expectant Mothers: Amanda Gray

Graduates: Caleb Henderson, Ginger Newson, Meadow Thayer, Ricky Cormier, Kimberly Jackson

Oh Round 8, what drama you contained! We got a new alien resident, Meadow and Slade proved that they weren't horrible parents, Mellow Metal had an album go gold, and two of our military men served their country and returned home! With so much happening, bet you wonder what Round 9 will hold, right? Well here's the ROS for Round 9:

* Cheat! Can be an affair or a one time only thing.
* Woohoo scavenger hunt! Woohoo on all available objects.
* Party (Rolled a barbeque)

The cheating one is going to be quite interesting. It is very fitting for the sim that rolled it and I'm thinking it will be a one time thing. But I haven't quite decided. I was going to roll for it but I decided to let the sim's personality decide how serious it is. The woohoo scavenger hunt fits the sim that rolled it :). And the party will be much needed for this family, although I don't know how it will end. It has the potential to be a disaster or a great time lol.

And after viewing the voting results, Mindi Mason will now be a playable! There were 4 votes for her becoming a resident, 2 for her staying in the background, and 1 of you didn't know who the heck she was lol. I'm exciting about breathing more life into Mindi, I think she's actually quite an interesting character. She will be moving into her own place and hopefully pursuing a relationship with Mr. Marcus Burns :).

Brian Johnson will also finally move into his own place with Joanna. I think it's safe to leave Slade alone now, he's proven himself trustworthy, at least when it comes to Joss! Mellow Metal will also do some shows in this next round, and I haven't completely ruled out another tour...........

I'm excited to see how Celeste and Satitu handle their new adopted daughter. She is quite different from Andromeda. I'm also thinking I may introduce Connor to Totia this upcoming round. It'll be best to ease him into his visit to Peragama when he turns 12 and Totia is a good start for that.

I really enjoy playing the sims and sharing my stories with you guys and I'm so glad that each of you take the time out of your days or nights to read about my little pixelated people :). I will once again be taking a mandatory break this summer as the class I need was canceled and won't be taught until the fall. So my updates still may be sparse until about the end of May. But then I get 2 months of fun with no class assignments to worry about :). Thanks so much for hanging in there with me during these droughts and I really appreciate all the comments you guys leave, you're all awesome! See ya in Round 9!

Just one birthday this time!

Jasmine Oros is now 1 year old! She has her father's (Terrence Coners) almond shaped eyes. I think we'll see a lot of similarities between her and her half-siblings as she gets older.

* She is DEFINITELY much more green than Conner! I love that freckled alien skin though :). The multi pollination tech set I have really has some nice skins. She has the same eyes as Celeste and her family, although it's hard to see it in this pic. 

* Guess what's next? Tippy's wedding! I've already written it up and have it ready to go and will probably post it tomorrow :). The wedding will be the last post for this round, yay!

If Everyone Cared

Round 8 - June 2042
Jacob Ellison is 42, Lorelai is 36, Kiara is 4, AJ is 1

And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be 

Jake couldn't believe that his little man was already a year old. Time seemed to be flying by at an unrealistic rate. He wished he could bottle this time up, save it for later once the kids became teens. He was so busy with the studio and the club that he rarely got a chance to enjoy the quiet times. And with as often as Lorelai was being called to Vasadori, he had a feeling that things wouldn't be quiet for either of them pretty soon........

Sitting Down With: Slade Willis

By Joanna King

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know about Mellow Metal. For those who don't, they are LaQuest Beach's resident rock stars who have been traveling the world and making beautiful music. While there is no doubt that Slade Willis, Brian Johnson, and Kenny Connors are all hotties who have girls and women alike swooning, Slade Willis is definitely the heart breaker of the group!

SDW: So, how are things?

SLADE: (laughs) Things are great, how are things with you?

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test and don't ask why
It's not a question but a lesson learned in time
It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life
Green Day

"You're being ridiculous, Slade," Meadow said.
"How am I being ridiculous? You're being ridiculous! Why do you need this dude to meet our daughter? She's 1 for goodness' sake!"
"We've been dating for 9 months! I think he's going to be a permanent part of my life, which means he will become a permanent part of hers. I really don't even NEED your permission to do this. But you're her dad. And I don't want to fight with you about this," Meadow said.

Tales of Vasadori Sneak Peak

I decided to post an excerpt from chapter one to get opinions on the story. I'm making pretty good progress so far. I haven't finished playing through the uni update which is next so I figured I'd do this to fill in some of the time :).

Paerolia was once a prestigious school for young elves where members of the royal court were trained for their duties. It was one of the few buildings not destroyed in the war, but had remained closed for centuries. It would open in a week to train the first royal court since the war.
“What’s so wrong with LaQuest Beach Preparatory School? All my friends are going there, not Paerolia!” Arwen said.
“Is she still going on about this?” Elvin asked as he walked into the kitchen.
“Of course she is. She’s been going on about it since her birthday last month,” Tessa said laughing.
“Well she needs to stop it,” he said with a frown.
“SHE can hear you. I’m standing right here,” Arwen said rolling her eyes.
“Then hear this: You are to be the Queen of Vasadori, a position of great honor and responsibility. Paerolia will prepare you for that position. Do you have any idea how many young females, human and elven, would love to be in your position?” Elvin asked.
“I don’t care! Why don’t you say what you really mean, Elvin? You want Vanya to be queen, just say it!” Arwen shouted.
“Arwen……..” Tessa began.
“I’ve made it no secret that I think my daughter would make a more fitting queen,” he said.
“Well it’s true, Vanya. You are so much more better prepared, so much better suited…….”
“Do you think I asked for this? That I wanted this? Do you think growing up in a house with a step-father that despises you is easy?” Arwen said in a deadly calm voice. The red in her eyes began to glow ever so lightly.
“Arwen, calm down,” Tessa said.
“Do you see what I mean? Do you see how out of control she is? Truly her father’s daughter,” Elvin said distastefully. In a flash Arwen had him pinned up against the kitchen wall, slamming a hole into the drywall.
“Arwen, no!” Tessa yelled as she ran around the island.
“Yes, I am my father’s daughter. Which means I can end your pathetic existence without even trying……..but I won’t. Do you know why? Because no matter what you may think, I am not my father. His dark elf blood does flow through my veins, but it does not decide who I am. You would be wise to remember that. I’m going to Kiara’s, be back soon,” Arwen said as she let Elvin drop to the floor.
“I’ll come with you,” Vanya said quietly. Tessa helped Elvin up from the floor.
“She’s not ready. She’s out of control,” Elvin said.
“She’s only like that when it comes to you. It’s been twelve years Elvin, why must you still take your anger out on her?” Tessa asked sadly.

"You can't just keeping popping in here unannounced Gurth! Arwen is your daughter but that doesn't give you the right to just show up whenever you feel like it," Tessa said.
"I apologized, I didn't mean to upset you, Tessa."
"Sure you didn't. Just don't do it anymore."

Everything that I wanted and it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

Conner managed to continually surprise Amanda. She knew that he would be more advanced than the average child. He was of course NOT the average child. But his abilities and mental capacities were astounding. He had mastered the violin and was only 9 years old! She didn't know what they were going to do with him.........

Schoolyard Antics

Round 8 - February 2042 - LBE

Taesha couldn't believe her little girl was in Pre-K! It seemed like only yesterday that she and Gordon were at LBU trying to figure out how they were going to manage being parents and finishing school. Now Gordon had his master's, she was teaching, and Lyria was making new friends at school. The time passed by so quickly......

Prologue to Tales of Vasadori

I decided to share this prologue as it doesn't contain any spoilers :). Let me know what you think!

Let’s address the elephant in the room. Elves exist. It may be hard to believe, especially for sheltered humans, but they do. I do. Although, technically I’m considered a half breed by most. We’ve been around for centuries, existing on a plane called Vasadori, not within human reach. We’ve had our wars, our tragedies, just as any other group of beings. My grandfather was king of Vasadori for a time. His name was Alberi Vasan. Now elves have their own races, just as the humans do. The light elves were considered to be far above the dark elves. Their powers were more pure, based on the goodness that lied within them. The dark elves thrived from anger and malice. So much so that any true love they felt for another elf would drastically diminish their powers. My grandfather was a dark elf. He was one in a long line of dark elf kings. His first in command and best friend was Veryan de Muse. Together they ensured that dark elves were not condemned by the light, that they were allowed to use their powers freely. King Alberi also allowed the dark elves to enter the human realm and wreak havoc. Soon the light elves rose up against him and a civil war began. With the help of Veryan, Alberi was able to regain control of his kingdom. During the course of the war, Veryan fell in love with a light elf named Faelwen Ghillon. It was illegal for a light and dark elf to marry at the time, a fact in which Veryan was well aware. So he waited. King Alberi also fell in love with a dark elf named Falathiel Loreyn. They were soon wed and quickly Falathiel became pregnant and gave birth to a son, Gurth Vasan. King Alberi would reign another five years before Veryan and his army he had gathered in secret attacked the castle. Because of the love that King Alberi felt for Falathiel and Gurth, Veryan was able to overpower and kill him. Falathiel was the most powerful female in Vasadori and Veryan knew that she would not take Alberi’s death lightly. So he had his army kill her as well. Young Gurth was five years old at the time and rushed in to save his mother, getting slashed across his right eye in the process. Veryan decided not to kill the boy and instead banished him and all of those who remained loyal to Alberi. Veryan assumed the throne and quickly married Faelwen. He changed all the laws and gave light elves more rights. He also formed a council of elder elves who enforced the rules. As a peace settled over Vasadori, Faelwen gave birth to she and Veryan’s first and only child, Elvin de Muse. Elvin grew up being the prince of Vasadori and had a wonderful childhood. When he was sixteen years old, Gurth and his army attacked the castle to seek revenge for Alberi’s death. Because Veryan loved Faelwen and Elvin so much, his powers were substantially weaker and he was killed by the hands of Gurth. Gurth also killed Faelwen and would have killed Elvin had the elders not stepped in. They were able to weaken him with the love of his parents, although they were not able to kill him. Instead his powers were stripped and he was banished to an isolated corner of Vasadori. The war almost destroyed Vasadori, leaving it in ruins. Most of the remaining elves decided to join the human realm. Others formed small villages and remained in Vasadori along with the council of elders. Later a scroll was found that told the story of the civil war that would lead to the destruction of Vasadori. It also spoke of a half elf, half human child who would take the throne and restore Vasadori to its former glory. I am that child. I am Arwen Vasan, Queen of Vasadori.
