I suppose some would call me a time traveler.  Others, an abomination.  It all depends on who you ask.

But I was not always like this.  I was someone’s daughter, once… I was a sister and a friend.  I was loved.  But those days are long gone.  No one loves me now; not even me.

Upon my humble birth my parents were given no notion that they would come to despise me.  No one forsaw the monster I would become, or the atrocities I would commit when they gazed tenderly into my infant eyes.

To understand fully how my tragic metamorphosis came to pass, you must first acquaint yourself with how I was before.  To accept death, you must first remember life…

    Wow I love you story. I’ve had a thing for vampires for years. I was wondering if you have ever heard of Christine Feehan or Sherrilyn Kenyon. They are both amazing vampire authors.

    Thank you both of you!

    Morgystanford: I’ve heard of both Feehan and Kenyon and both of their series but I’ve never gotten around to reading them. Right now I’m trying to avoid picking up another book because I don’t want to get side tracked (as I have already easily been done once with ST:TNG). LOL I’ve had a thing for vampires for years as well. 🙂

    Most sim vampire stories that I read are boring and unimaginitive. This is absolutely AMAZING. 😀 Thank you for sharing your brilliance.

    I wouldn’t call it brilliance… madness maybe, but not brilliance. LOL Thank you so much!

    Wow! This was a very engrossing prologue. The pictures are gorgeous, and your writing is just wonderful!

    Will you settle for brilliant madness? This was just amazing! Haha, it was like a literary roller coaster ride.

      Thanks! Of course, just today, Sean (my husband and editor) noticed a split infinitive in the beginning. Booooo! LOL *goes to fix typo*

      Ha ha, yeah, I guess I’ll settle for that. 😛

      Thanks again! Random fact: I LOVE roller coasters.

    Hey, I decided to go back to the beginning of your Legacy. Exquisite pictures as always – and I must say, that was a very engrossing read. I felt for Pasha! Why???? ha ha

    How long does it take you to finish a chapter? This one encompassed a whole lot!

    • 23 March 2009 at 6:21 am

      Thank you for the compliments!

      I had to look back at the dates to figure out how long it took me to write this chapter. I started working on the Prologue approximately 25 of June, and I published it on 01 August (and good lord – I had the original idea way back in… January, I think), so it took a little over a month (plus I got a new computer halfway through taking the pictures). It really depends on my mood/health/overall willingness to work (not to be confused with my enthusiasm for the story – which hasn’t lessened). I think the quickest I ever finished a chapter was a little less than two weeks (Chapter 3), and the longest was almost three months (The Life and Death of Roger Carmichael). Whenever I finish a chapter, I usually like to give myself a break from the computer for a few days before I start even thinking about the next one (but a couple of times I was on such a roll that my break only ended up being a couple of hours – LOL). 🙂

    Just found this, I love vampire/Sim stories, as I have a Sims vampire story on the go myself. I am completely enchanted and love how your writing and story flows, I will definitely be back to read some more. Also your pictures evoke the era and the mood wonderfully! Adelaide is a fascinating character, well done!

    • 3 April 2009 at 12:47 am

      Aww, thank you! I’ve been obsessed with vampires since I was a child, and addicted to Sims for at least 8 years – it was only a matter of time before the two preoccupations met up! LOL I will definitely be checking out your story. 🙂

    … *is totally stunned*

    Alright. There are legacy stories. There are stories. There are a mix of the two.

    And then there are “stories” like yours – which are almost life-changing due to their drama, plot, and artful execution of the pictures. As a fellow simmer and legacy author I can especially see how much hard work and dedication you’ve written into your legacy – and it stuns me. This is exactly the sort of work that I need to read to refresh my very muse herself – thank you, thank you, thank you. May the joy you receive in the creation of this work never leave you.

    *promptly bookmarks and takes out a notebook to jot notes on your awesome-ness and how to become more awesome like you*

    By the way, the beach scene nearly made me cry. I totally was expecting some WooHoo (which I was braced for, but not really going to enjoy myself) and I have to say I was surprised and touched when things turned out the way they did. And, you know what? Even though I KNOW the title of your story, that it is about vampires, and have seen posts about your stories flittering about Boolprop and LJ… I was still surprised that he was a vampire. >_>;

      I’m sorry it has taken me this long to reply to your comments! I guess you could say I was trying to come up with something as equally wonderful as your compliments for my story. I think I’m still blushing! I really do thank you! I… I just don’t know what to say.

      It would have been “improper” for Addie and Pasha to WooHoo before marriage, so I never let them. 😛 They rolled up the want a couple of times, but I wouldn’t let them give in to temptation – even when they tried to slip in a sneaky “Casual WooHoo” without my permission (which I quickly X’ed out).

      Thank you again for the compliments!

    have the same name..well I guess what people call her :Addie.I totally would love it if more chapters could be made..I think you could be ritch for this…I just luv this so much :3


    • 28 August 2009 at 4:15 pm

      Sorry it has taken me so long to reply to your wonderful comment! Thank you so much for your kind words. 🙂

      Also… is it really sad that when I got the email alert that I had a comment from “Addie” that I got a knot in my stomach? LOL I was afraid to open it for a while because I was thinking it might say something like, “WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO PLAY ME AGAIN?” LOL

    I discovered this today. I like Sims 2 better than Sims 3 but I always read Sims 3 legacy stories, so I searched for Sims 2 today to see if I can find an interesting one and yours was the first I looked up… because the theme interested me very much… ^_^ And I stopped searching. I’m reading it now, ’cause it’s amazing! You have such talent. I love the attention you give to details. Can’t wait to read more, actually, I’ll get down to it now.

    • 22 October 2010 at 1:29 pm

      Aww, thanks! 🙂 I’m flattered that you felt my story good enough to halt your search! I’ve read a lot more Sims 2 stories than Sims 3 stories, but I guess that’s because I haven’t really played Sims 3 so I tend to not think about reading stories made with that game. I played Sims 3 for about 10 minutes when it came out – I couldn’t get a handle on the controls and quickly abandoned it! LOL

      I hope this doesn’t come off as rude or weird, but where do I know your name from? I know I’ve seen you before in the community, but I can’t remember which site! And I thought this kind of thing only happen in “real life”! 😛

  12. 23 October 2010 at 7:07 am

    🙂 I visit alot of Sims related sites but I didn’t publish any legacies or something yet. Or maybe there’s someone else named Ermannith. That’s just my nickname, anyway, not my real one.

    • 24 October 2010 at 1:08 am

      I figured it was just your nickname. 😉 I have a severe case of mama brains so who knows if I actually have seen your screen name before, but it just seemed so familar! Oh well. LOL

Sim Goddess

Welcome to my blog! My name is Robin and I have been playing The Sims 2 since it was first released (September 13 2004 - technically it came out on the 14, but I had preordered it from EB Games so I got it a day early). Before that, I had been playing original Sims game since... 2000? 2001? I'm not quite sure, but I do remember having to wait for Hot Date to be released. So yeah, I've been playing Sims for years.

This blog, Shadows and Blood, is the home of my legacy (and sometimes some real life stuff too). What is a legacy? Oh, just look at my "Site-ations" list and you'll find a link. I don't have a link to the official site because it fails and I am against it (hence putting my story here, rather than on my Simpage).

So yeah, sit back and read my story. Tell me what you think (unless you think it blows - in that case, don't let the browser hit you in the ass on the way out... jk) or just stop by and say hello. Unlike my Sims, I don't bite.
