    @Lucy_Henley I know right? They are absolutely crazy about boxes. The more cramped, the better.

    I got my cat back! 😍😭 he came home yesterday afternoon. There's medication and he needs to be watched for a little while to make sure he's okay but so far, so good. Gods I'm so relieved. That is not how I pictured my week would go at all.

    ToC will be back sometime next week! I'm going to take the weekend to spoil my cat rotten before it's back to business as usual. For the curious, here's a snippet for next chapter:

    And some more obligatory cat spam from this morning:

    See you next week 🥰

    Hi, guys. It's been a rollercoaster of a week-and-a-half, but I'm back with a new chapter. One more week of work and then it's time for blissful Xmas holidays. I hope you're all doing well. 🙂

    Blessed Yule, everyone 🎄🌟

    Next chapter can be found here. I'll add the book later but imgur is being a potato and won't show me my own link to copy. I made it with snowflakes and everything, too 🥺😆

    I'm experimenting with this one: how much of a story can I tell with very few words?

    *Edit: There we go! Snowy book!

    I'm so far behind. But such is my life this year. Just read one chapter earlier. Hoping to read more soon. As always, @_sims_Yimi amazing work! Hope you have a happy holiday season.

    P.S. love the kitty spam!

    @AdamsEve1231 Hi! Haha, looks like this was a roller coaster of a year for a lot of people. I'm glad to hear from you! I've been low-key lurking on your stardew valley thread cooing over your characters and waiting for the story to unfold. Happy holiday season to you, too!

    My cats chased each other into the Christmas tree this morning. Then the bigger one somehow got stuck. I wish I could have taken a picture of the cat bum sticking out of my tree. 😂

    I don’t have cats as my father is allergic sadly, so the closest I get is owning them in The Sims. One of my Sims’s cats needed spaying recently, and when she and her owner got back home, the cat looked highly annoyed by it :D

    Anyway…
    The look on Sarah’s face in this picture when she’s looking at that portrait of Uther and Ygraine!

    ekXL8sF.jpg

    The curse words that must be going through her head… :D I like all the medieval curse words you’ve used in the story. Is there a particular source you get them from? The thing I like about having a blog for my stories is that I get to use swear words and other things that’d get blocked by the forum filter. I try not to use too many bad words, only very occasionally if I feel like the situation would really warrant it.

    Bwahaha she’s wearing the cone of shame! Aw, poor kitty 😂

    Sarah has a number of death glares at her disposal, and that is one of them. Haha, I steal most of them from the internet, since I don’t want to use modern swears but I’m not well-versed in medieval England swear words at all. They have some very interesting ones if you google “medieval swear words”. My favourites are "fopdoodle", "saddle-goose", "mandrake mymmerkin" and "muck-spout". I bet EA won’t censor any of these but we’ll find out in a moment- maybe they’ll surprise me with their knowledge of medieval no-no words.

    No chapter this week guys, sorry. We have D&D this weekend. Am prepping a massive elven city. It's fun but extremely time-consuming. I'll be back probably early next week!

    If you're bored while waiting, have a riddle that I gave my players to break their heads over:
    They have a scroll that will give them treasure if they solve what's written on it. It says the following:

    Sing to me the purest of sounds

    If you think you know the answer, send it to me in private. I'll send you a chapter snippet if you're correct. 🤭

    D&D sounds like a lot of fun, but also kind of complicated! Enjoy the weekend!

    Woops, almost forgot to leave this here. The next chapter is halfway written too, and I don't need to prep D&D this weekend, so it shouldn't be too long of a wait. 😊

    I had my booster shot against covid yesterday morning. The first two vaccines were all right but this one has really thrown me for a spin. Loopy for hours. I have no idea what kind of crazy fever dreams I had last night but I'm 95% sure that dinosaurs wearing Christmas hats were involved. Or maybe that's just me being weird. Anyway. For the people who are taking them, I hope that you're doing okay 😊

    HA! I bet you didn't expect to see me back so soon! Muhahahaha!

    *cough*

    Yeah, last chapter got so big that I had to split it in two. I added an extra scene but it was almost done already. The wise thing would have been to wait until later so I had time to write more, but where's the fun in that? 🤭 Here you go!

    Me: See? You should have waited with the last one. Then there wouldn't be such a big gap and-
    Also me: shhhhhhhyaddup.

    Hi, guys 😄 it's late here and I don't have anything exciting to report, other than that my cats are actively trying to figure out how to open doors. World domination is only a few steps away at this point. You have been warned. 😆

    And also a chapter, I suppose. Here you go!

    Update: the cats have figured out how the doors open. Luckily they're heavy doors and both of them combined can't move the handle. They have not stopped trying. 😆

    Also this:

    Hi, guys! I swear I posted this yesterday but then I fell asleep before updating things here. It still counts as posting on Valentines' day! Sorta! Kind of 🤣

    Anyway. Happy Valentines! I bring you all the wholesome 😘

    Hi @_sims_Yimi
    I reported the issue regarding attachment issues to @EA_Cade a week ago and he told me it was due to issues with some BB codes and their hosting provider was on the case. It seems that it is not easy to solve :s
    I'm not quite sure what a BB code means, but I can see you have found a temporary solution I want to copy :)
  • _sims_Yimi_sims_Yimi Posts: 1,510 Member
    @MonaSolstraale Yeah, for now I just figured I'd move the index down a post, and then move it back when the problem is fixed. It looks a little weird but that's the best I can do for now. I don't want to lose the index look by posting it without attachments. 🤔

    Oh! We can post again! Woo! :mrgreen:

    Hi, guys. Last calm one before things slowly start snowballing again. I hope you'll enjoy! Can you see the next looping yet? Wheeeeeeeee~~~~ 🎢

    Whew. This one took some effort to make. Not in the usual sense, but... well. You'll see. I hope you'll enjoy. ❤

    No chapter this week, guys. 😅 Work stress has started to dig into my mental health and it's taking up all of my headspace at the moment. The Guinevere inside of me is telling me to grin and bear it while Morgana wants to destroy it all with extreme prejudice. We'll see what happens.

    In the meantime, have a potato! :mrgreen:
