Shooting Star

Chapter 1.2
Location: LaQuest Beach/Peragama
Date: August 2044
(Amanda & Corbin Gray are 48, Connor is 12, Alex is 11, & Anastasia is 2)

 Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know? Don't you know?
Don't you know that you are a shooting star?
And all the world will love you just as long
As long as you are
- Bad Company

"I know, I know. But why did it have to come so fast?! Two years is an extraordinary amount of time for a 12 year old to be away from home," Amanda said.
"But Connor is no average 12 year old Amanda. He's 18 years old by Peragamian standards.........."

100 Years - 2044

Place: LaQuest Beach
Date: August 2044
 15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got a hundred years to live
- Five for Fighting

Liam Coners was very excited about starting school. Turning four meant that he could go out and play with other kids and learn some things. It also meant that he could get away from his little sister! He didn't understand why his mom seemed so sad about him going to school at all.......

Float On

Chapter 1.1
Location: Camden Park Fairgrounds
Date: August 2044
 Alright, Already
And we'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on alright
Don't worry even if things end up a bit
Too heavy we'll all float on alright
- Modest Mouse 

When the mayor of LaQuest Beach, Christian Brown, asked his former intern, Caleb Henderson, to head up the creation of a fairground on the island upon which Camden Park resides, he had no idea the young man would do such a wonderful job. It was more than he expected and he knew the residents of LaQuest would enjoy the grounds for years to come. Caleb was truly a mayor in the making.........

Decisions, Decisions

So after having a little sit down with myself, I decided that I do want to continue with the blog. However, I am no longer interested in HOW I was playing. I think I just got bogged down by keeping up with all these different stats and trying to actually run the neighborhood. So I have decided to just stop all that. I will no longer do rounds, since this is pretty story based at this point anyway, I plan to do chapters instead. The chapters will have sub-numbers (1.1, 1.2, etc) because if every household was a chapter, the numbers would tick away very quickly lol. I'll still play everyone's house and still do birthdays because I think it's important to know when they're aging, but that's pretty much it. School updates will only occur when I play the house of the person in charge of the school. And of course I'll still play the uni updates by semester. I think simplifying it all will help me not get in these long periods where I just don't want to turn on the game. I still plan to do Connor's time in Peragama (which is actually where we'll begin mainly) and Arwen's story of becoming Queen of Vasadori. I enjoyed playing the rounds and running the hood but I think it just became a little much for me to want to maintain between work and the other things I have going on in life. I want to get back to it being fun. And the story part of the sims, the ability to interpret what their interactions mean, has always been the most fun part for me. Also, the story will remain here. Because ALL the rest of the posts are here, it'll just be easier I suppose for any new people that run across the blog to see what's happened up to the point where they join. I'm excited to be inspired again :)

Thayer/Wrightwood Wedding

I have once again fallen off the wagon as I'm sure you guys have noticed lol. I just don't know that I play regularly enough to keep up a blog but I realized that I already had the photos for their wedding and I just wanted to share them. I'm not saying whether or not I'm going to continue because I don't know. But I did want fans of this story line to at least get to see their wedding.

Slade couldn't believe that he was actually watching Meadow walk down the aisle. After all they had been through, it was a bit surreal to play at her wedding. But he had to admit, Frenchie had gone all out to make this the wedding of Meadow's dreams.......

New Elementary School Update

The new elementary school update is up on the new blog. I can't believe Connor Gray will be 12 next round! He will have his trip to Peragama starting at the beginning of the round so he'll miss out on going to junior high on Earth. He'll be back in time to start high school though. Ryan Knowles and Georgia and Garrett Newson will also be heading off to junior high next time. The Newson house is now full of teens so playing next round should be fun lol. Check out the new update below!

Marshal White Update

Marshal White's update is up over on the new blog. I am still getting the auto center I downloaded for him ready, but I totally intend to let him own his own shop. Still working out how exactly he'll run it and make money from it. It's been so much fun catching up with all of my families! I link to the old posts so that anything from their past that has happened can be seen. I know it's hard trying to remember all the characters and what all has happened to them considering I took a two year break -_-. Check out the new post!
