Lost in you

Round 8 - April 2042
Elvin de Muse is 49, Tessa is 45, Vanya is 6, Arwen Vasan is 3

Somehow I found a way to get lost in you
Let me inside, let me get close to you
Change your mind, I'll get lost if you want me to
Somehow I found a way to get lost in you
Three Days Grace

"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."

I was here

Round 8 - March 2042
Last update/ Next update
Corbin and Amanda Gray are 45, Connor is 9, Alexander is 8 (Ryan Knowles is 9, Celeste Oros is 32)

I was here; I lived, I loved
I was here; I did, I've done
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.

Dum, Dum, Dum..........

So I realized today that it has been almost a month since my last post. Between all the holiday craziness and a new project, my poor sims have been neglected. So I guess I'm taking a small hiatus. The new project that I'm working on actually is kinda sim related. I began working on Arwen's story for the spinoff and realized that I really love writing this story! So much so that I've decided to finish it in it's entirety (however long that may be). It's a bit of a stretch to call it a book, maybe a novella? Anyway, I'm really excited about writing it while the wheels are turning. I have a tendency to get writer's block after too long. I'm sure I'll come up for air soon, especially since classes start back next week. I don't know if I want to post it here as I am definitely going to still do a sim story with it.......I'll still post, but it will be pretty sporadic. I've had Christian Brown's bio written for a while, I just need to make his photo collage so that should be up soon. So I'm not gone and maybe it's not technically a hiatus, the posts will just be pretty spread out for a while. Thank you so much to all my readers, love you guys!
