Ramblings — Old Faces

Here is another one of my unproductive and aimless ramblings! This morning I reread some old chapters and was smacked in the face by nostalgia. So I decided to go off task (like I always do) and go visit my previous heirs!

Here is Fern and Christopher! I did a little bit of editing to bring them up to their current ages (62/63).

They are such adorable elders ❀

Ah I haven’t seen Briar looking so happy in a long time, wish she was like this in the story lmao.

This is what I’m working on right now. I have a feeling that the next chapter won’t be out in quite a while because of it. For the chapter, there is also a time skip in which I have to do some redecorating in the legacy penthouse. I need to make eight poses for it as well and I predict the pictures will take a long time to set up and take, sadly. September dance and school exams are close too… you get the point. But I hoped you liked this random post, and have a nice day πŸ™‚

  1. Ahh, these are adorable! Makes me want to go back and reread chapters too lol. I agree with the others, Fern’s dress is really cute. Where do you find all the cc clothes you dress your sims in? I’ve been searching for some to try and make my sims look better, but I’m having a hard time finding anything I like.
    Have fun at the school dance and with those exams. πŸ™‚

    • Lmao please don’t, they are so embarrassing gah .~.
      I download 99% of my cc from Tumblr now, nothing from TSR because the quality is so bad. So hopefully you know how to use Tumblr haha.

      * Fern’s dress is from Spectacledchic (http://spectacledchic.tumblr.com/) who is my fave creator right now. She makes cute, vintage types of clothing.
      * I also love Home Grown (http://chisamidream.wixsite.com/homegrown) which has the best maternity + toddler clothes and is in a natural, relaxed style! It uses a mesh which makes the boobs and butt bigger so you might want to fiddle with sliders, but the quality and designs are really good so I use these clothes on both Cherry and Lilith all the time.
      * I sometimes use Walkininfected (http://walkininfected.tumblr.com/), Vodxsi (http://vodxsi.tumblr.com/), Santosfashionsims (http://santosfashionsims.tumblr.com/) and Mariellisaa (http://mariellisaa.tumblr.com/)for the more modern/darker aka. Lilith clothes.
      * SK-Sims (http://sk-sims.tumblr.com/), M1ssduo (http://m1ssduo.tumblr.com/) and Nyanya Sims (http://nyanyasims.tumblr.com/) make nice clothes +acc +make up too!
      * All my male clothes are from Simsimi Only Mine (http://simsimi-only-mine.tumblr.com/) and LittleMSims (http://littlemsims.blogspot.co.nz/)

      As these creators make 3D meshes they look more realistic, but the file sizes are bigger and might slow down your game + rendering a little bit, just a warning. Hope this list is helpful!
      And oops I didn’t make this clear but it’s not a school dance I’m going to, it’s my dance exam haha. Sadly we only have one dance per year and it’s the big ball that only seniors (most final year) go to… which I am attending next year!

      • This was so much more than I was expecting! You totally rock. πŸ™‚ Thanks bunches! I can’t wait to go check everything out. And I did recently join Tumblr, but I have no clue what I’m doing haha. I’m sure I can figure it out though. Thanks again! ❀

          • At the moment, I’m not sure what I want it to be lol. I haven’t messed with it at all I’ve been so busy and have been out of town for a week. I’ll have to get back with you later once I figure it out myself! πŸ™‚

            • Ah yes, I got a better look on Tumblr! They do look quite similar, with the blonde hair and cute faces, but that’s okay!
              I’m just going to give some warnings about Tumblr, just in case you don’t know already! Hope you don’t mind this, but when I first went on Tumblr some things surprised me…
              Firstly, since there’s many, many, MANY more people, there is much more drama and negativity than on WordPress. Although I personally have never experienced it I have seen a LOT of racism or rivalries between different simblrs and also since you can send messages on anonymous, unlike WordPress, people can send hateful, mean messages. If that ever happens to you, which I don’t see why because you’re a very nice person, ignore them and turn off anon asks in your settings. There’s nothing worse than replying to them, especially if you hit back, because it will most likely fuel a drama. You will be surprised at how peaceful WordPress is compared to there.
              Secondly, there are some simblrs who have amazing sims but they aren’t very nice people and will often reply to asks really rudely. Unfollow them. I followed some people because of their beautiful pictures but every time I saw their negative, drama queen posts I felt… bad, for the lack of a better word and it kinda dampened my day even though it had nothing to do with me. If you’re like me, then it’s best to unfollow them. By the way, it’s common for porn blogs to follow random people, just block them immediately.
              Thirdly, when you start a simblr, don’t be sad if you get little to none activity/likes/followers at first. I was quite disappointed when no one seemed to be liking or noticing my posts when I started out. But now I’ve realised that it happens to literally every single newbie just because of the sheer number of simblrs! Don’t be discouraged at all, you’ll find that activity will grow exponentially. And speaking of exponentially, expect your sim-making and editing skills to grow way faster on Tumblr. There are so many amazing simblrs out there you will be motivated to improve all the time! I have 209 followers now, although like on WordPress, only a fraction will actually like your posts lmao.
              Fourthly, relating to number 3, it will seem really hard to make friends. I was very intimidated by several simblrs at first because of their number of notes and asks and followers they got all the time, and the amazing cc/pictures they make. But it’s actually pretty easy to make friends with them if you like and comment nice things on their posts all the time. I’ve made friends with some long-time simblrs that way and it’s great! Send them friendly messages on asks because everyone likes to get ‘fan mail’ lol. All in all, just be super nice whenever you can, I guess.
              I think that’s it! I feel like I just wrote an essay haha… hope it was helpful! I might remember some other things later.

              • Oh, wow. Thanks for the warning! I never would have imagined that people would be rude like that, but I hope I don’t have to worry about it and that you don’t have to either!
                Porn blogs? Oh yuck… I will definitely block those. And I look at Simblrs a lot looking for custom content and I do see some that reply to their asks in a nasty way too. I haven’t sent out any asks yet, but I know I will in the future. I try to be nice, so if anyone is just rude for no reason I won’t take it to heart lol. There are so many talented people on Tumblr! I really hope it does help me improve my skills because every time I see something amazing that someone has posted I get all inspired to try and be that good too. πŸ™‚
                Thanks so much for all the tips! ❀ Wish me luck in figuring out this whole Simblr thing haha. c:

  2. Ahhhh I’m caught up!
    And I love how your story’s evolved! Especially your screenshots omg
    And all these characters…I kind of secretly ship her and Lucifer…but I ship her with gabriel more lol
    There’s just something I never really understood. And that’s why Briar did such a turn around…I mean she didn’t lose anything in the fire. Or is there something from Cherry’s past we just don’t know…or is there something I misread…
    Anywho, still loved the read!

    • Yay! I’m glad you enjoyed!
      Luc and Cherry are certainly quite shippable! πŸ™‚
      And for the Briar thing… I don’t actually remember. LOL. I know I had a reason but what it was escapes me. I’ll try recall… hmm let’s see… okay this is the only thing I can gather from my knowledge of her: first up, Briar’s mind is more unstable than she shows (result of the violet eyes = able to see lunar light). She had just reached a point in her life where everything was perfect, happy and peaceful. She hadn’t felt real fear and stress in a long time. Therefore, when the fire happened and Cherry was burned, the sudden jolt back to when her previous life was too much for her. And when her children began breaking away from each other (Cinna/Cara/Cherry) she had lost that sense of peace and family. She hadn’t lost much physically (except for whole house…) but psychologically, the fire brought back bad memories of the past (e.g brother dying, constant fear)- so, it caused her to gain a panic disorder due to the already fragile stability of her mind. Her response to that was closing off and stop feeling good emotions in order to stop feeling the bad.
      I’m not sure if that was my actual reason, and I’m not even sure if it was good enough. But that is what I can divine from writer’s knowledge of her. I think I left it out to make the readers think, but maybe I probably should have explained that… sorry, I’m not as good with writing plots as you are, lmao. I’m better at taking the screenshots than the actual story oops…
      Thank you so much for reading and commenting, blamsart! I hope you like the story to come. ❀
