DITFT: What is sims I don't even know

So it's almost been literally a year since I last posted an update for this challenge. And it's been only a little less than a year since I've updated this journal point-blank.

I guess, yeah, I quit Sims for the year or so? And considering I'm heading off to college in the fall, I don't know if I can ever start to keep up with it again. (Today I downloaded something for my game for the first time in ages and I forgot what to do for a second. It was weird.) I'd love to, but, I don't know. Anyway! DITFT!

what is sims baby don't hurt me no moreCollapse )

Just shufflin'

I feel kinda bad for referencing that shuffling song but whatever, I do what I want. Also, I found a similar meme from way-back-when, so I added those questions that weren't similar from the second meme to make one giant meme. Because my siblings have horrible choices in television and I'd like nothing more than to tune it out right now. Onward!

Oh, you're thinking too fast; you're like marbles on glass.Collapse )


It seems we're at an impasse.

So I'm still in NTM this year! I even made it into the top 3 last round, which absolutely floored me.

The current active round is Color My Emotion, which was a round last year as well. Because of that it took me a while to really get inspired for the round. And now that I finally have, I find myself with an unprecedented dilemma: I have too many pictures and I can't choose three to submit.

Honestly, it's ridiculous. I stare at my seven best pictures, each representing a different emotion, and I make a decision and then change my mind, swapping out one photo for another just to swap the replacement for another or end up with the first picture again and I keep going around in circles and it's absurd. Which leads to this post: which three of my seven shots for the round are the ones that particularly stand out or properly express an emotion?

Oh, and you don't even want to know how many shots I've rejected already; the seven "finalists," as it were, are the best from their particular crop. Each feeling had five or six different shots or angles. It was absurd. No wonder my computer keeps complaining to me about disk space...

Anyway. It's picture/babbling time.

Rambling under the cut.Collapse )

Also Deathly Hallows Part 2 was so freaking fantastic and I cried so much and just...I don't have any words. It was beautiful. Go see it.


So this meme

Give me one of the characters from my story and I will tell you:

* How I feel about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing that will happen to this character in the future of my story.

idk what non-romantic OTP really means, but I'm guessing it's like, who their best friends are? Ship romantically isn't going to have much variety, I'll admit. I think like all my characters are monogamous. /lame

Anyway! I got some characters ready to go, a video game taking a million years to install itself, and a quiet afternoon with nothing better to do.

11 characters undet the cutCollapse )

And that's that. If there's anyone else you want me to talk about, comment, I guess? Yay. I liked doing this, it was fun!


I'm supposed to be on vacation BUT...

Give me one of the characters from my story and I will tell you:

* How I feel about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing that will happen to this character in the future of my story.

Yep. And this can apply to anyone ever: Hermione's ABCs characters, SR characters, TVA characters if you're prepared to be bored, and anything else you can think of. Comment away and I'll do a post encapsulating all of them maybe when I get home (or else if I get bored again soon, haha.)

Currently on vacation, but my cousins are failing at Super Mario Brothers Wii atm and no one's in the mood for board games currently so I've taken my brother's laptop for a minute. I'd use mine, but my room is in the basement so I don't get wifi very well and I'd have to go find an outlet because my room seems to have no plugs. Dx Wayyyyyyy too much effort when there's an unattended laptop right here for me to borrow.

See ya!

Step 1: Put your iPod/iTunes on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song or artist the lines come from.
Step 4:Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

'Cause I'm a sucker for memes. Let's roll.
Anyway, this cake is great; it's so delicious and moist.Collapse )


It's us that made this mess!

For ages I've been clamoring for someone to write a supernatural romance story where the girl is the dangerous killer and the guy is only a hapless mortal and the other day I decided I might as well try it for myself. So here is a short story I randomly spouted out one night. It's called "Only Human" and it is not a happy story. Names are utterly random; the protag actually shares a name with my neighbor's son just because we were at their house the other day and it was the first name I came up with. Anyway! I probably could write the full story instead of just this little segment if I wasn't so lazy, but it's an interesting concept and if anyone wants to write their ~version of the story, feel free. (I'd much rather read someone else's story with a plot like this than write my own to be honest, haha!)

Blathering over. Story now.

Take a bite of my heart tonight.Collapse )



DITFT: Buy something or get out!

I'm finally finished with exams! Finally I can sit down and type up this update without feeling like I'm neglecting schoolwork or not studying enough. (Not that it helped, lol, I'm pretty much fucked with all my exams except history.) But anyway! We have a nice update today, filled with many silly shenanigans in an effort for an extra two points. Intrigued? Read on!

Surely not what you thought it would beCollapse )

Treat your dads nice today, 'cause they love you and stuff.

(Unrelated note: happy!Inigo makes me smile.)

(Unrelated note 2: It took an eternity to get the posing just right on this, oh my God.)


NTM again?

Hi, everyone! So I'm doing the NTM event on Boolprop again, and I actually made it through the first round this time, haha. And I've found myself with an excess of unused pictures/general spam of my model, and I don't have exams until Wednesday so here is some picspam for you all.

I hold no grudgeCollapse )


DITFT: Whirlwind romance!

I really love being off from school. I probably ought to have been writing my paper for English today, but I was waiting for a phone call that never came and so never really got around to it. But I told myself that I either would have to do the paper or update the challenge here, so the latter it is! As said in the last update, I've had all these pictures for a long while. I'm really looking forward to being able to play again, actually.

No time to regret!Collapse )


DITFT: Not the chair!

I've actually had the pictures for two updates ready for awhile now. And once again, I taught myself that there is a very good reason why I don't play ahead: it's because then I just want to play forever and ever and not actually write updates. To be honest, I've lost a lot of ground in all my projects, which kinda sucks but is also kind of expected, considering this is the end of my junior year and everything matters a whole lot for college so I have to focus on my grades for a bit. But regardless, look, an update just in time for Memorial Day!

Hide your eyes, I'm gonna shine tonight!Collapse )


I Feel Pretty/Unpretty: A Songstory

It's really awkward when you devise a songstory heavily involving self-image and imagine all sorts of cool shots involving mirrors and then you attempt five different ways to turn on reflections only for the game to crash every. fucking. time. So you justify it in your mind in some weird way (read: reflections in mirrors don't actually matter that much, so all the mirrors are blank! DEEP) and attempt to go on with your life, and then come up with the following.

I really liked Glee's mashup of "I Feel Pretty" and this other song I'd never heard of, "Unpretty." It actually touched me really deeply and I sought to find a way to live in the song in the tiny remainder of my spring vacation. So I decided to do a songstory (which is completely unrelated to any of my various projects) with some leftover Sims from a Sim Scenes entry I never actually did. About halfway through I developed a disparaging case of "Holy shit I suck and everything I do sucks" anxiety due to the whole lack-of-mirrors-that-actually-reflect thing. But by that point I had done too much work to give it up without feeling like more of a loser, so I decided to keep at it. It's a songstory in the style of "Nightmare Girl," if you'll remember that, in that there's a bit of it that's not just the song, but otherwise it's just me fangirling over the song. Enjoy.

Who am I to make me feel so damn unpretty?Collapse )

Rambling run-on sentences of death aside, I read The Scarlet Letter ages ago but was too congested to hold my head up for longer than a couple hours, and then it was only to aimlessly watch videos on YouTube and not string along coherent thought. Anyway, on with the show!

Did we all fall down?Collapse )

DITFT: Bill and Allyn do stuff

Hi, everyone! So I'm on vacation now, the show went wonderfully, How to Train Your Dragon is a goddamn beautiful film that made me weep repeatedly, and in my spare time I've been playing our designated spare, Bill, and his wife Allyn. This update's just about as long as a normal chapter, and after I post this I'll return in-game to Vera and, y'know, the actual challenge. But for now, enjoy the first of presumably many Spare Stories. (In other news, I really need to discover a more descriptive way to say "stuff happens.")

This is the bonus stage.Collapse )
