Life Update + Unique Blogger Award!

Well hello, it’s been a while…..

Ahh I’m sorry guys! Life just kinda got in the way and I haven’t been able to get pictures for the next update (it’s all written, just need the damn pics!) And out of nowhere I found out that I won’t be seeing my boyfriend at all next semester since he received a co-op, so we’ve been squeezing in as much time together as possible, and blah blah blah… So there’s that. But don’t fear, I’m not giving up on this story! Updates just might be slow af for a while 😄

Anyway, onto the award!

Unique Blogger Award

I was nominated for this award by Thesimsloewelegacy and Lila Remonn, both of whom write amazing stories with the most beautiful pictures I’ve seen ❤  Thank you both for the nominations!

unique-blogger-award

The rules for the Unique Blogger Award are as follows:

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
  • Answer the questions.
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate  8-13 people for the same award.
  • Ask them 3 questions.

Thesimsloewelegacy:

  1. What do you think makes your story different from the rest, what is it that makes it unique? I think the plot makes my story stand out. How many people can say they write about supernaturals on a parallel plane of existence? Haha anyway, I really like how I’ve developed the world of Svartur and made it similar to Earth in some ways, different in others.
  2. Which group do you belong to? Writers using The Sims as a source of images for their stories or Simmers who love sharing the stories of their Sims with others? Probably more the first group, but I still do love sharing what my sims do with other people!
  3. Who of your Sims you’ve ever created is your absolute favorite and why? Oh gosh… How can I choose?! I guess if I absolutely HAVE to, my favorite character would be Ryan Macvan. He’s been through so much hardship, yet he perseveres and continues to stay positive. He’s a huge source of support for Link. Also, it helps that he’s cute 😉

Lila Remonn:

  1. How has writing a Sims story affected your life? I’ve met a ton of awesome people I’m proud to call my friends through this blog and Tumblr! It’s also helped develop my writing skills and it honestly just makes me happy.
  2. What do your non-online friends think about your Sims story? They don’t know about it >.>
  3. What do you think makes your story unique? Already answered this above, but I’ll add on: Another unique thing is how I unintentionally manage to relate what’s going on in the story to my real life feelings. For example, whenever one of my heirs has bad relationships with their parents – I probably didn’t feel close to my parents at the time. Or when the heir *cough*Elijah*cough* started pushing everyone close to him away because he was terrified of losing them, I was doing the same in real life. Interesting how that works…

My Nominations:

Sooooo because I’m a bit late to post this, I’m not too sure who’s done it and who hasn’t yet. I’m not going to nominate anyone specifically. Ugh I wish I could be more active on here but school always manages to get in the way >.<  But don’t worry, over Thanksgiving/Christmas break I might be able to post the next chapter!

7 Facts About Myself

  1. I recently stopped playing violin after playing for 10 years and I regret it. A lot. I’m probably going to rejoin the orchestra next semester though!
  2. I miss the sims 😦  I found out my new laptop can’t handle the game, so I have to wait until I return home to play and take pics for this story. I’m so sorry guys!

  4. I’m currently obsessed with the song Stitches by Shawn Mendes
  5. Physics is actually going well this year, I kinda want to tutor physics next semester :3
  6. One of my friends is a super tough looking guy, loves listening to death metal and wears all black, 300 pounds, about 6 feet tall. And he’s a giant teddy bear. So sweet and cuddly and I love him ❤  (And he’s watching me write this!)
  7. I have an essay due in an hour and I haven’t started yet. Instead I’m writing this thing for some reason. Aren’t I smart….

9.12 – Pax

A/N: Aaaaand this is where I run out of queued posts. I still haven’t installed The Sims 3 on my new laptop because I lost the code for my Supernatural expansion pack, so I can’t register it on origin. Let’s hope I find it soon…

A few days later

This is the team?” GK cast an unimpressed glance up and down the table, his pale eyes resting on me last. Sometimes I hated sitting directly across from him. It meant I had to watch him silently judge every person in the room. “One burglar, one assassin, one… me, and three trainees?”

“I’m not-” Caesar began to protest, but Morrigan quickly cut him off.

“Chase is not just some trainee. He’s the best getaway driver we have.” At the moment Chase was completely spaced out, rolling his bread back and forth on his plate.

GK rolled his eyes. “He’s childish.”

9.11 – Blackheart

A/N: The Macvan gang is here! I finally get to introduce them 😀 Once again, thank you to everyone who submitted a sim! I gave credit to you all at the end of the chapter. Song is here. Enjoy!

Screenshot

Maybe if I waited long enough, the police would come and drag me off in handcuffs. Or maybe the Macvan assassins would show up to kill me. I deserved it now. That little girl had been just as innocent as Logan had, and I murdered her. I was worse than Duncan.

I’m the worst fucking person on the planet.

9.10 – Immortal Avenger

A/N: Link to song is here. A warning – this chapter contains violence and child harm/injury. Please do not read if these things will upset you! 

… Man, when did this story get so dark? We haven’t even met the Macvan gang yet *groans*

Screenshot

“Why must you wake up so early, princess? Mummy and daddy like their sleep.” Duncan shuffled around his living room while carrying a wide-eyed baby girl. He bounced her against his hip and she made that sound only babies make, the gurgle-cough. I remembered Colton and Logan making that noise a lot.

For the third time since I’d teleported into the Palace, I wondered if Duncan really was the killer. Sure, he had stubble dotting his chin and bloodshot eyes, but that could be because he’s a father. I needed to confirm he was my family’s murderer.

9.09 – Caradhras

A/N: Song is here!

Screenshot

“Why?”

It was a simple question. But Elubarin didn’t have a simple answer. He kept pacing the room and refused to talk.

“Why won’t you let Ava meet Pan?” I asked for the thousandth time. “What is he now? Drug dealer? Drug addict? Alcoholic? A serial killer?”

Silence. That probably meant I was right. Time to switch tactics. “Well, it doesn’t matter. Ava deserves to meet him no matter what. I know what it’s like to not have a family. She needs to meet her dad.”

“You know what it’s like?” Elubarin finally stopped pacing to give me a hard stare. Maybe that wasn’t the right thing to say… After all, his whole family was dead. “Alright. Perhaps you can relate – Pan is dying.”

The Sunshine Blogger Award

A big thank you to TheWindsorLegacy and Loladiamond01 for nominating me! They both write amazing stories that have made me laugh, go aww, and (nearly) cry. I don’t think I’ve cried at a sims story yet, though I imagine it will happen eventually… I recommend you check out both if you haven’t already!

the-sunshinebloggeraward1

What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?

Well, it is of course an award for bloggers from other bloggers. It is a beautiful way to share all the amazing things other bloggers do and write about. To recognize their efforts in inspiring others to do what they love.

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  3. Nominate 11 bloggers and add their links.
  4. Notify the bloggers you included.
  5. Keep the rules in your post.

Questions from TheWindsorLegacy:

  1. Would you rather fight a hundred goose-sized elephants or a goose the size of an elephant? Why would I fight them? I love elephants 😦  Haha so for that reason alone, I would fight one goose the size of an elephant. It would pretty hard for that goose to sneak up on me, so I think I’d have a good chance of… defeating it?
  2. Shuffle your songs on your phone/computer/whatever — what’s the first song that pops up? Oxygen by TFK
  3. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you want to be? It’s a tie between Hawaii or someplace in Europe (wherever my best friend is)
  4. Savory or sweet? Sweeeeeeeet, I have the hugest sweet tooth ever. If it’s possible to die from sugar overdose, I will…
  5. What made you create your blog? I read The Edith Prescott Mystery Series (still one of my favorite stories!) and Splintered Sun, and I was super inspired to start my own story! I always loved playing the sims but I was getting a bit bored of just playing, so I thought it’d be cool to use my imagination to create a story that was illustrated with sims pictures.
  6. What do you do when you want to relax? Lie in bed, listen to music, and close my eyes.
  7. What never fails to make you laugh? My brother! And Good Mythical Morning, I always end up laughing at something 😄
  8. Do you prefer living in a city or in a rural area? Or somewhere in-between? I love the suburbs, I’ve lived there almost all my life. I guess I live in a “city” for college, but it’s such a small city it’s basically a suburb. Overall I just like how there’s nice shops and houses in the suburbs, but also a lot of woodland and open areas.
  9. If you could live in any fictional universe, which would you choose and why? Oh man… I have to say Middle Earth. I would live in one of those really beautiful Elven kingdoms.
  10. If you could domesticate any animal and have it (safely) be your pet, which would you choose? Ooooh I love this question! I’d domesticate a polar bear. Imagine how cool it would be to ride a polar bear around (and have it slaughter your enemies for you… not that I’d do that or anything).
  11. What is your favorite word? Eternal – I like the idea of something lasting forever, and ‘eternal’ is a nicer sounding word than ‘forever’ in my opinion.

Questions from Loladiamond01:

  1. What is your favorite animal? Wolves, at the moment. It changes a lot 😄
  2. What is your favorite song? Criminals by David Cook
  3. If you had a chance  to use time machine, would you go and do something  differently-even if it could change the nowadays? I like where my life is right now, but I would change one thing – I would make sure I keep in contact with that aforementioned best friend who’s somewhere in Europe right now! It’s been years since I’ve heard from him 😦
  4. Are you an introvert or extrovert? Definitely an introvert
  5. Are you more of a neat or messy person? I’m in-between, my tables and dressers are super messy but there is absolutely nothing on my floor.
  6. How much time do you spend sitting on the Internet? Ahahahaha….
  7. Do you really read all the blogs you follow? I think I do! I’ll admit that I probably haven’t read every single post on every blog because sometimes I start reading during the middle of the story. So if I don’t leave a comment on your post, it’s probably because I’m not caught up and I’m afraid I’ll ask a stupid question 😄
  8. If you could meet any person of any century, dead or living,  what would it be? Maybe Nietzsche? Or Machiavelli?
  9. What is your favorite thing to do? Snuggle ❤
  10. What annoys you in people? Oh dear, I’m annoyed by a lot of things. Let’s see… People who chew with their mouth open. People who are rude to waiters, cashiers, etc. People who backstab. People who are racist, sexist, homophobic, etc (obviously). People who won’t fucking shut up during class discussions. I could go on, but I think you get the point lol
  11. Do you prefer books or movies? Depends on my mood. Right now I prefer movies, but I generally prefer books. I actually need a good book to read, so if you have any recommendations I’d love to hear them!

9.08 – Transfiguration

A/N: Link to song is here.  College is due to start in about a week, so if my posting schedule becomes messed up, blame that… And I’m sad to say that I have to wait a while before installing the sims on my new laptop (I got a new). First I need to download all the programs I’ll need for school, and then I’ll worry about sims. I have some posts queued so hopefully by the time those run out, I’ll have the game reinstalled!  

Screenshot

About two months later

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors…

“How do you do that?” I reached around Ava and hit one of the piano keys, causing her to wince and bat my hand away. 

“I told you not to interrupt,” she sighed. “And it’s easy. You just play the notes written on the paper.”

“But they’re just dots… How can you read dots and sing at the same time?”

“Practice, Link! If you want to be good at something, you have to practice. Things like this don’t come naturally for most people.”

I shrugged. “Stealing wallets comes pretty naturally to me.”

9.07 – Friendship to Last

A/N: Apparently I forgot to link the song for last chapter, whoops 😄 This chapter’s song is here. Also, I hope this post isn’t too boring… It kinda turned into a wizard history lesson halfway through (which was not what I intended) but it was fun to write, so I hope it’s fun to read!

Screenshot-2

“Ooh, look at you, up early and in your nice-boy clothes.” Ava was lounging in the dining area, her freshly washed hair flipped over one shoulder. She was twirling my wand above her head. “Papa told me to bring this to you, but I think you should come and get it yourself.”

“These aren’t my nice clothes,” I yawned. Elubarin had loaned me a shirt I wouldn’t normally wear, but I just had to deal with it. I’d forgotten to pack before leaving Ryan’s place… “And I thought you said we’re ‘friends’ now.”

“We are. Don’t your friends ever tease you?”
