Forget-Me-Not - An Ambrosia Challenge Story

Hi! It's me. The author of some other stuff you may know about. Like Fey of Life and The Chrysanthemum Tango. I finally caved and then steeled myself enough to announce my Ambrosia Challenge story! Yayyyyy! Here's the deal with it:

FORGET-ME-NOT
banneri1.png?w=676

Sometimes, all it takes is one mistake. One slip-up. One misguided moment that leads to one rather misguided and vengeful ghost. And as the wealthy Eldridge family and one homeless and now also lifeless Sonny Downer soon realise, fixing things is much trickier than breaking them.

Note: This story isn't the darkest out there, but it still has some pretty dark stuff in it. There'll be some violence, and themes of revenge and manipulation, and whatever else my mind will cook up later. Nothing too out there but still, I figured I'd mention it. I'll put warnings in the beginning of chapters when I feel they're needed.

The Prologue can be found here.

For more info about the Ambrosia Challenge, check out THIS post.

Feedback is very much appreciated. Take care guys and have a lovely time.

    Thanks, @CitizenErased14 ! And thank you once again for coming up with this challenge. Also yeah, this is my first TS4 story and I'm still kind of learning TS4s tricks.

    Hey guys! I've finally managed to do my final edits to this: the next chapter to Forget-Me-Not! Just a note, though, that I don't have access to TS4 when I'm in my university town, where I'm spending quite a lot of time now, so updates might slow down again pretty soon. I do have a buffer of about four chapters, or at least material for them, so I'll try to get the updates out in reasonable pace.
    Anyway, here we go:

    Chapter 1: Waking Up

    He woke up in an unfamiliar place.

    I hope you enjoy and have a lovely day/night/whatever time it is there.

    @WitcHazard :) Thanks! My version of Death is a main character in my Chrysanthemum Tango -story, and I figured I can skip trying to come up with a new Death for this story if I just use him and his realm here too.

    This is fascinating so far! I'm not very familiar with the Ambrosia Challenge aside from the ghost angle, but now I'll be sure to avoid looking at the details so I can be surprised. I'm with WitcHazard, I like your version of Death too!

    Yes! A vengeful ghost I can't wait for his revenge! >:)

    @LadyLobster Yay! I'm glad you're liking it so far. And that you like my Death. He's my favourite character to write. Also yeah, the Ambrosia Challenge is pretty strict about certain story steps, so if you want to avoid spoilers, then not looking it up is a smart move.

    @WitcHazard :smile: Revenge schemes and all sorts of drama will be on the horizon, I promise.

    It's time for some answers, but the answers aren't nearly enough...

    I hope you guys have a lovely day!

    Sonny has too much time on his hands. And too many things to regret.

    Well these two chapters we're really something! I liked the mini subplot adds more to the characters!

    @WitcHazard Thank you! :blush: I'm glad you liked them! It's easy for me to get carried away with character-writing... now let's just hope I don't get TOO distracted from the main plot. :)

    Growing pains and changes shake up the life of the Eldridges.

    Hi! I've had some free time lately, and it's awesome! I've used a lot of that free time for schoolwork, but I also got time for a writing-binge or two. So here's the newest chapter to Forget-Me-Not!

    Chapter 8: Determination
    Sonny makes a decision.


    I hope you enjoy and have a lovely time!

    EDIT: This chapter is temporarily not available because I'm contemplating whether or not I should rewrite or delete it because it may be taking my story too much off the rails. For more details, read this blog post.

    Sorry about this and thank you for your patience!

    Plum I just wanted to read the chapter :D I know how you feel. I often publish my chapters without much thinking though I just go with it. I guess now I would maybe like to re-write a few of them but I don't care that much about it. What is out is out :) only spelling mistakes I correct later.
