    This chapter of Life is Random marks the first day of High School for the twins, and is also the start of my switch from Short to Normal lifespan for this save. Decided that would give me more time to work on one of the High School aspirations.

    I keep forgetting to post in the Lounge, but I am currently taking a planning break from my story to get things in order before I write myself into an inescapable corner. : P So far it's at 13 chapters and the chapter index is here.

    An update following my last post: The power's on. Which means a stronger internet connection so I can look up stuff and ideas for my next Simlit whenever I want, and so that my laptop stays charged. I don't know when I'll start writing the next Simlit.

    Good news about your power being back on. Take all the time you need to plan your SimLit.

    Not updating unti EA makes me. I've heard enough about it to make me wary. There's no way to put off updates, for one thing.

    A bit of a long chapter this time. Wouldn't have taken so long if I hadn't run into a game bug that took a while to figure out the cause. And then I didn't know exactly where to send them for the fishing competition so was late. I decided to rollback to an earlier save and cancel Kai's gig so they could get to Sulani earlier in the day.

    An ancient artefact is found, a heartfelt gift is delivered, and darkness falls.

    I hope you enjoy! It's a long one, but there's lots of stuff happening.

    Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

    Oh well that's good to know. I guess the person who said otherwise missed that.

    I decided to check in on my “Magical Mastersons” save which hasn’t been touched since the end of May, and sadly all the ages have been messed up. Gah!

    So, I came to the difficult decision to abandon that version of the save and start a new one, with the same original couple. Basically, recreate the save. There will be some changes, though… back when I originally started them in May 2020, the only mod I had was MCCC and I didn’t have any CC. Now I’ve got several mods and bits of CC, including Pose Player.

    It’ll be a shame abandoning a save I’ve been playing on and off for two years, but in some ways it’ll be fun starting again. I’ve become too attached to the names etc I used in the original save, so I’ll be using those still.

    Chapter Nine of Lucky Girl is out now! Click HERE

    Something suitably Halloweeny for this one as Jude and Evie explore an abandoned church outside of town, and he tells her a ghost story from his own life.

    The first chapter of my upcoming story will be up soon. Here's the pic and summary -

    jg.jpg

    Adora the Warrior Maiden summary (Characters are from She-Ra, but the storyline takes inspiration from both that show and Xena): Adora thought she was fighting for the right side, but time spent outside Horde Fortress caused her to rethink the propaganda that had been drilled into her mind during her childhood. Now that she left the army she grew up in, she must help her new friends defend Dragon Valley. She has another goal - to learn about her origins and where she came from. Will she save Dragon Valley, and will she find her true family?
