I’m baaaackkk!

Technically, I’ve been here all along. 😛

First of all, let me say thank you and I’m sorry to those who periodically check this blog for the next chapter. While this isn’t a chapter update, it is an update of sorts (the fact that I’m even posting qualifies this as an update in my mind). But a chapter IS in the works! I know – I can hardly believe it myself. Being a SAHM to three kids is incredibly time-consuming. No apologies, no excuses – not for that. It’s just a fact. I love those crazy little people and I love those crazy pixelated people too, but I only really have time for one or the other and the real-life ones are going to come first. But with all that being said, I have missed my legacy!! I seem to load TS2 for Andy more than I do for myself these days. He has his own neighborhood and family that he made. I have one or two families in that ‘hood too, but the game usually crashes before I get to play. He loads the neighborhood up (and occasionally, his family’s lot) with all this crap that my graphics card or whatever just can’t keep up with. Most of the time I end up playing his family when he’s wandered away to “fix” whatever he’s done. I can’t tell you how many times those kids have been taken by the Social Worker!

So… who is up for some picspam?

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 7

Finally, right?

Please be mindful of the warnings for this chapter. I realize that there has been some uproar lately regarding the use of rape as a plot device, but I stand by this chapter. No one really reads this any more (I’ve been aware for a long time that I’m writing this for myself) so I don’t expect any backlash anyway. Apologies to anyone who is offended. But as I said, I stand by my work. I didn’t throw it in there for fun, or because I felt like that particular character “needed something”. The rape, and the chapter, is what it is.

I’d say enjoy (as I usually do), but this chapter is too full of bad things to say that I guess. Please leave any comments/questions on the chapter, and I’ll respond to them ASAP. I don’t get the chance to get on my computer that often… having an (almost) four year old and (almost) one year old twins cuts out a lot of my “me” time!

WARNINGS: coarse language, murder/violence, sexual situations (implied), rape

This will be it for a while. Newborn twins are HARD WORK. 😛

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 6.9 Bite Sized

This freaking chapter was finished MONTHS ago, but Sean and I never finished editing it until now (I don’t think we’ll edit anything together ever again, LOL). Sorry to make y’all wait around!

Enjoy! And as always, feel free to leave me a comment!

WARNINGS: coarse language, murder/violence, attempted murder, worst Christmas ever

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 6.8 Bite Sized

Dear God, it’s FINISHED!

This chapter is not bite sized, not by any means. I don’t think anything with 249 pictures and 30,717 words on 17 pages can ever be called “bite sized”!!  And can you believe that this one is technically a TWO-PARTER when you combine it with 6.7? Monster chapters!

I’m not really sure what else to say about this chapter. It has taken me so long to get it finished and it was emotionally draining at times (contains some of my own triggers which weren’t easy to write about, believe me). I’m going to let the chapter pretty much speak for itself.

Comments/questions/critiques are welcomed and encouraged! I am going to close comments (as usual) on this introductory post but they will be open on the actual chapter. I will continue to monitor comments before they are posted, and spoiler comments will be edited. 🙂 If my plans for 6.9 go the way I want, this should be the last chapter that I have to edit comments for spoilers (for a very long time, at least). Yay!

So… without any further ado…

WARNINGS: coarse language, suicide, murder/violence, sexual content, naked baby butt (not really a big deal but whatever), probably more that I just can’t think of

NOTE: I highly recommend re-reading the entire story before reading this chapter. But, if that’s not possible, the following chapters should definitely be reviewed before continuing: Prologue, Bite-Sized Chapters 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, 6.6, and 6.7.

Osvanna’s Atonement

I knew I had to share this part of the story, but it didn’t really fit at the end of 6.7 (well, it did – but I didn’t like it there), nor did it fit at the beginning of 6.8 (like, seriously). So… we have another side story! This one is MUCH shorter than The Life and Death of Roger Carmichael, so don’t get too excited. I guess, technically, 6.7 and 6.8 could both be classified as side stories, as they don’t really do much to advance the plot of the main storyline. But, I felt like 6.7 and 6.8 were needed to fill in some information that just about everyone who has ever read this legacy has asked about – which will make sense when it comes time to release 6.9!

But that won’t be for a while yet… I mean, damn – I haven’t even finished Chapter 6.8 yet! :O

Also, I finally get to use another song as an intro! For some reason I decided that the bite-sized chapters wouldn’t have songs, but I may break my own rule and put one at the beginning of 6.8. I’ve missed doing the song intro thing. 🙂

So, while you wait for me to finish 6.8 (my goal date is May 11th – the day the new Dark Shadows movie comes out!), here’s a tiny tid-bit to fill in one (not-so-crucial) blank. 🙂 Think of this as a birthday present from me to you – even though it’s me that is turning 30 today (ugh).

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 6.7 Bite Sized

I told you I was working on it! 😀 Actually, most of the pictures for this chapter were taken last year, as well as most of the writing. I only had one little place I was stuck on, which was part of the delay for the chapter’s release. The other delay was… well, I had planned on releasing this chapter AND 6.8 at the same time. But 6.8 is nowhere close to being finished (I’m getting a little overwhelmed – time to step away from it for a couple of days to get my head straight) and I’m tired of sitting on 6.7! A couple of days ago, I got the brilliant idea that I should merge this chapter and 6.8 into one big chapter, because the way it is now will throw off where I want Chapter 7 to begin. But, after thinking it over a little more, I broke the chapters up again into two parts. There is a fairly large time-gap between the end of this chapter and the beginning of the next, and it just didn’t fit well when it was thrown all together. I don’t know when I will finish 6.8, but suffice it to say that it WILL be finished. I made up my mind a long time ago, if I never finish this legacy, THIS part of the story (meaning 6.7 & 6.8) will be told!

I’m not going to say too much more here… just enjoy and feel free to leave me some comments/feedback! Spoiler comments will be edited before posted. 🙂 I know I still have some comments waiting for moderation, and I have NOT forgotten about those! Those will be approved/replied to shortly!  I have finally approved and replied to them.

WARNINGS: mild language, suicide mentioned
EDITED TO ADD: I highly recommend re-reading the entire story before reading this chapter. But, if that’s not possible, the following chapters should definitely be reviewed before continuing: Prologue, Bite-Sized Chapters 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, and 6.6.




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.
