    Marcus is long dead in my game, though, since I'm well on Gen3 now.
    Yes, I remember that...
    I remember you writing a scene with Darren, Marcus and Aria that was very bold and vivid. I also remember Aria dying of fits of laughter shortly after. It was so sad.
    I completed reading the first two generations until Darren died or until you took a break. I remember all the characters became very alive in your description.
    I think I'll go back a bit to pick up on the third generation.

    I have posted another chapter and it's rather chaotic and all over the place but I'm slowly finding my sea legs again.

    So the Henriques family went back to Selvadorada because I wanted to work on Tevo's aspiration a little bit. Still need to figure out how to fit the artifact authentication in because that takes forever just to do one. Or it did, last time I did it.

    Kind of hard to play TS3 on a computer with a failed hard drive :p

    So I mostly just threw myself back into games/reading/fanfiction/etc.

    Also real life might have played a part too in all that :D

    @rednenemon awww I'm sorry for your hard drive :( I had a hard drive failure myself earlier this year, but thankfully I managed to save all of my art and photography and sims screenshots to a different drive before it completely gave up. I lost my whole music collection but it can be rebuild.

    Aaand I have Chapter 3.11 and Chapter 3.12 which gravitates to some real storytelling in the end.

    Usually I dislike making sims for my story myself, I prefer gameborn sims, but my legacy save had an apocalypse of sorts, because I started the save before the skintone update and then got rid of all my CC hair so I had a lot of SkinZero and NoHair people and it took me 3 hours to sort out most of them... So I populated my game with loads of families and sims from the gallery, and it's really neat to have nice and cohesive sims around.

    And sometimes the story takes a different spin and I get an idea and have to introduce a sim into the world myself, because I have a clear image of what he needs to be.

    He turned out really cute, though.

    You do what feels right to you. I like to switch when my chosen heir reaches young adult. Though I might start focusing more on them as teens.

    I like creating Sims for my story. For my characters’ spouses etc, I like to start a separate save and play those characters from birth, so they feel a little more real to me and have some skills etc (I know I could use cheats for the skills, but I prefer to gain them the normal way). Plus doing so can provide an interesting story point in the future.

    I have a story thread for my upcoming TS3 story. The first chapter will be out soon.

    Here's the summary -

    The Guardian of Neverglade: Jasmine is the oldest in her family - and also the most powerful. She has big dreams; travel abroad, marry her boyfriend, and have a family. And raise up the next generation of witches. However, a dangerous threat shows up, and she must defend the ones she cares about.

    How's everyone today?

    I just released the first chapter of my TS3 story, "The Guardian of Neverglade."

    I'll tell you a bit about my characters -

    Jasmine Nakamura (Age: teenager) - Her traits are Brave, Good, Adventurous, and Disciplined. She's skilled in athletics and martial arts and has been working on those skills ever since becoming a teenager. She's also a powerful witch like her mother, Prudence Nakamura.

    Speaking of Prudence, her (Prudence's) traits are Good, Party Animal, Virtuoso, Artistic, and Brave. She's been a musician ever since she married her husband, Kenshin.

    Kenshin Nakamura - His traits are Over-Emotional, Good, Good Sense of Humor, Natural Cook, and Neat. He likes to cook, and it's the main reason why he joined the culinary career. Kenshin and Prudence are both in the Adult life stage.

    Preston - His traits are Workaholic, Computer Whiz, and Genius. Like his twin, Saoirse, he's a child. He wants to be a "Renaissance Sim."

    Saoirse - Her traits are Bookworm, Brave, and Genius. She wants to become an "Illustrious Author." Also, she looks up to Jasmine when it comes to magic, as she wants to be a powerful witch when she grows up.

    If they don't meet as childhood friends so I have a chance to get to know them, I like to switch over and do a chapter from their perspective to get a feel for playing them before starting up a relationship. But I like your method. I usually pick sims already in the world unless there isn't one I like enough, or one I only need to ed it a little bit to be what I had in mind.

    I recently finished Gen 3 of my story, so now I'm trying to get into the head of the new heir, Freya, for Gen 4. I procrastinated forever, though, because it also meant saying goodbye to Gen 2 🥲

    I'm only gonna do 11 chapters of my current story because I'm losing the motivation to write, and also, playing the Sims has worsened my mental health no matter what iteration I play.
