Shadows and Blood: Chapter 6.2 Bite Sized

Just another tiny installment!  I’ll probably keep up with the mini chapters until I’m ready to go into Chapter 7 (so nine of these most likely).  I think this will work out better for all of the cliff-hangers, reveals, and plot bombs I have planned – if they were all in one big chapter, the impact of each one would be lost the further you go into the chapter.

I apologize again for this legacy to be taking so long – blame real life!

Enjoy and feel free to leave comments and feedback (I actually remembered to allow comments on this one – unlike 6.1, which I accidentally left closed because I’m a dummy)!

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 6.1 Bite Sized

What’s all this then?

Well, I wanted put something out, but I don’t really have time to do a whole chapter right now.  I had a couple of these pictures taken already (they were supposed to be part of Chapter 6, but if I had tacked them onto the end I would have spoiled all those lovely reveals/cliffhangers) and have finally had a few minutes here and there to actually do something with them!

This is by no means meant to be a whole chapter – just a bite sized morsel, if you will.  😛  There’s a couple of other places in the story where I can just throw scenes out by themselves and it won’t hurt any upcoming chapters or story flow.  If Andy continues to let me, maybe I can do a few more of these!  I hope no one minds if I do this – I sometimes feel that if I don’t get to work on my story just a little that I may very well go insane!

This scene takes place just a few minutes after the last “page” of Chapter 6… which is about a week or two after the “page” before it.

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

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 6

So… this chapter ended up being a lot shorter than I had originally planned and I’m not sure if I’m happy about that…

I want to thank everyone who has been waiting for being so patient.  Hopefully, it will prove to be worth the wait.  I don’t know when the next chapter will be out (considering Andy seems to hate it when I sit down at the computer – I hope he gets over that soon!!) but I already have a scene ready for it which was supposed to be part of this chapter but I just couldn’t make it work, so into Chapter 7 it goes (and it will work there).  I don’t know when I’ll officially get started on the next chapter, but I hope it won’t be too long (but I can’t make any promises, you know?).

As for this chapter… well, it is short, but what it lacks in length I think it makes up for in substance.  At least at the end, anyway.  😛  And FYI, the sub-pages separate points-of-view.  (Edited to add:  I don’t know when I’ll get around to posting any outtakes.  I have a few that I want to share, it’s just a matter of finding time to edit them/upload them/write what I can remember about them.  Sorry!)

As always, feel free to leave comments/critiques/random musings.  🙂  Enjoy!

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 5

Chapter 5 is ready and is Twilight-bashing free (about freaking time, right?)!  In all honesty though, I didn’t really bash it in Chapter 4 (in case any one was offended – if you were, I’m sorry). I read those books and they certainly weren’t the worst thing I’ve ever read (I only truly hated, loathed, and detested the last one).  But come on, you know if an honest-to-God fry-in-the-sun vampire were to read those books they would probably have the same reaction Roger did. 😛

Also, there are a lot of Point-Of-View changes in this chapter.  I couldn’t give each POV a new subpage because I would have ended up with something like 13 sub-pages (I’m just guessing here – I never did count the number of POV changes but trust me, there are a lot), and some of them would have only had two or three pictures (which is something I’m trying to avoid).  The sub-pages do separate points of view, as do the “***“.  I hope all the switching back and forth doesn’t confuse anyone too much!  If anyone does get too confused, please let me know if you have any ideas on how I can avoid it next chapter (assuming Chapter 6 has as many POV changes as Chapter 5 – I don’t know if it will yet because… I’ve not started on it yet).

And while I’m at it, how is the site loading for everyone?  Has anyone noticed if the layout looks any different?  Are any of you getting the dreaded horizontal scroll bar of doom?  Sean and I recently worked on the code for this blog, changing a few subtle things here and there.  We hope the new coding we implemented makes the blog shrink or grow depending on your screen resolution… we’re wondering if it worked.  So, if anybody has encountered any problems let me know and we’ll see what we can do.  🙂

The outtakes for this chapter will be up sometime in the next few days – I really wanted to go ahead and get the chapter published considering I’ve been working on it since March.  Yikes.  I will also put up an heir poll when I publish the outtakes.  I haven’t decided yet whether I’m going to put up an heir poll at boolprop.com.  I don’t really want people voting for who they think should be heir if they don’t read the story, and I think that happens a lot over there (people just want to vote for a pretty Sim, they aren’t voting for the character).  Plus… I’m drifting away from that site more and more.  Maybe I’ve outgrown it.  I don’t know.  But now is not the time or place to discuss it.  😉

Finally (and back on subject – the chapter itself), please take note that the language warning for this chapter has been bumped up to “coarse”… a certain Sim likes to curse… a lot.  It’s not just the amount of curses, but the severity of the words used.  For the record, I would never write anything I wouldn’t feel comfortable with my mother reading, because she does in fact read this!  LOL

I hope you enjoy it, and as always, feel free to leave me some feedback! 🙂

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 4

Whew!  Finally got it done!  LOL

Please try to ignore all of the inconsistencies!  Oh and hey – no pictures of Adelaide in her underwear this chapter!  Man, she had a lot of panty-shots last time, didn’t she?  LOL  (She does have one in the outtakes though – oh well!)

And yes, I am aware that there is one picture (40) that doesn’t have any text… that is on purpose.  That shot (coupled with the one before it) speaks for itself, and hopefully when you see it, you’ll agree with me that it didn’t need any sort of narrative to explain it (I think I could have made it into a split screen picture, but it’s too late for that now… and I didn’t set up the shots to be split anyway, so if I were to change it now, it wouldn’t look right).  I don’t know if this is going to become a habit or not.  It’s not something I do, but this time it just seemed to work.

Also, slow-Internet users be warned – this chapter has a lot of pictures (114… I think… the file on my computer says 115 but I’m only counting 114… I don’t get what’s going on there, but oh well).

And lastly, please note that the *** does NOT separate points of view (like the ***** did in Chapter 2), but rather points in time.  Two of the time jumps are large (months and then years), and one is rather small (later the same day).  Every time I try to just leave an extra blank line, my blog deletes it when I update the post.  Sean suggested I put in a manual break using HTML, and I tried that before – but when I went back to the “visual” setting all of my formatting for the post had been deleted (nothing was centered, no italics, no bold, etc.)!  It was probably just something I did, but I don’t think you could really blame me for not wanting to reformat a finished chapter with over 100 pictures. <– See the edit below for why this is marked out.

Enjoy, and as always, feel free to leave comments! 🙂

WARNINGS: moderate language, slight nudity, murder/violence, sexual situations

ETA:  Thanks to arcadata, I now know how to break the chapter up into different sub-pages!  Yay!  I have broken the chapter up into five different sub-pages.  It shouldn’t be such a hassle to scroll down now, and the pictures may load quicker because they all won’t be trying to load at the same time.  So don’t thank me, thank her (arcadata, if you’re a guy, I humbly apologize).  Check out her (??) blog, Sim State Megahood and enjoy.

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 3

Here it is, just in time for the holidays!  LOL  I’m going to start right off with an apology about the shortness of this chapter.  It’s only 74 pictures long (which I realize isn’t very short at all).  Hopefully it doesn’t feel too rushed, because as short as it is, it’s jam-packed with legacy goodness (the term “goodness” is open to interpretation, of course).

Enjoy!

The Life and Death of Roger Carmichael

Almost everything you ever wanted to know about Roger Carmichael!  And please take note at the warnings for this – I think I managed to hit “Rated R” with this one (not so much for the language, but for the actual content – which was originally MUCH worse, but I have edited some lines here and there to make it not so bad).  So, if you have issues with more adult stories, don’t worry about reading this.  It’s not really required reading.

Ah, and if the snow gets on anyone’s nerves, let me know and I’ll turn it off (but I like it – and where I live, it’s probably the closest I’ll get to seeing snow this year).

Enjoy!

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 2

You know the drill… click the picture!  Please note that point of view changes a few times (I think I managed to give each POV its own subpage).  Also, be mindful of the warnings for this chapter – mild language has been upgraded to moderate, but I think it is still only PG-13.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy it!

Shadows and Blood: Chapter 1

Once again, all you need to do is click the picture I slaved over to make but don’t really need.  (So I didn’t slave over it… just click it!)

And please note: there’s a few little warnings.  Don’t let it hold you back though.  There’s worse stuff on prime time television.

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.
