Gen Four- Chapter Two

Neither of us knew how to react. I knew most people in the building and had formed the basic, pleasant general relationship one has with acquaintances on average at least twenty years older than you. Mr. Sterling though, well, he was essentially a ghost to me. A figure I saw only rarely and who only ever flashed a quick appearance in the corner of my eye before he impossibly darted off. Seriously, maybe he could walk through walls. I'd tried to follow him once or twice, and it was if he'd vanished from reality.

     "Good afternoon, Nutmeg," he greeted quietly and meekly.

I stopped his attempt at walking by by moving in his way. Needing to move down the hallway I blocked, he was trapped between getting to his destination and knowing walking in the opposite direction wouldn't help him.

     "Hey, Mr. Sterling, can I talk to you for a moment?" A bold request on my part, and one I knew he wouldn't accept.
     "Unfortunately, there's something I must take care of. If I could be on my way."

He sighed and rubbed at his forehead when I jumped to halt him once more.

Gen Four- Chapter One

One of the most difficult questions I've ever attempted to answer in my life is one many have pondered...what does it mean to be a good person? Or, likewise, what does it mean to be a bad person? I've known people I believed to be good who turned out to be absolute monsters. There are those who the world shuns as horrible when all I've ever known from them is kindness. Can a lifetime of repentance undo the worst of crimes? Can one terrible action dissolve every honorable act done until then?

I don't have an answer after all this time. Honestly, I don't think it's a question that can be answered. All one can do is take a look at the situation before them and judge to the best of their ability with their heart and mind. Such a conclusion was a long time in the making. It was during the late summer in my tenth year when I first had to ponder that above question, but it's probably best to go back a little before that. I'll start with a certain Friday. A day with a bright sun, lively early summer breeze, and moment after moment of subtle changes to my stagnant life.

The Simplified Color My World Summary...With Pictures!

Gen One

Ethereal is the protagonist of Generation One. She's an albino, a person devoid of her natural coloring due to a genetic defect. She lives a quiet and peaceful though isolated life behind locked doors with a small yard surrounded by large, white walls. Ethereal initially doesn't mind the situation. She's been told she's an important part of a plan for The Company, the organization who has been taking care of her.

Back in Business!

In final good news, the computer shipped sooner than stated. It arrived earlier last week, and I've been hard at work installing everything and getting the game as well as the rest of everything up to scratch. I've even been able to begin taking pictures for the start of Gen 4. There's still a lot of prep work to be done to set the scene for the new location, but hopefully most of that should be done in a day or two. For now, to still give me time to produce a decent backstock, the return date will continue to be October 6th.

There's not too much I can share at the moment, but here's the opening picture for the new generation:

Also, for the commenter asking for Arbor's download, here you go! I also put the link in list in the directory. Here's where you can get his tattoos, and next time I'm in-game I'll see if I can track down where his hair comes from. I found out which hair it is, but the download link I got it from is invalid now. I uploaded it to my Mediafire instead. Here you go!

Thank you all for your patience!

Color My World Character Vines

I got bored and wanted to try to do a few things on this blog to start waking it up before my computer arrives, so I decided to put this together. It's a fun little compilation of vines that I felt suited each tagged character from Color My World, be it something they would do, is their sense of humor, highlights their skill set or lack thereof, or references characteristics from any point in the series. Enjoy!

Also, contains kinda spoilers.

Almost There!

Hello, all!

I just wanted to give a quick update to let you know I've finally got a new computer!

Well, almost, haha.

It's been paid for, and the site estimates it will be built and shipped in about two weeks. If you're curious, I got the HP Omen Obelisk. I'll be able to play Sims better than ever before, and because of the easier upgradability of PCs I shouldn't have to worry about a huge computer breakage like what's caused this stretching hiatus.

Once the computer arrives, I'll do my best to get a good backstock of content as soon as I can. I want to go through a lot of the CC and mods I rarely used to declutter my game as well. The tentative return date is the good, old anniversary date of October 6th. I'll let you know if that changes though, for I have more outside projects on my plate than I used to have, so dedicating all my writing time to my Sims stories is harder.

Again, thank you as always for your patience, and I hope to see you soon.

A Needed Update

Hello once again, all!

I figured it was about time to pop in and let you know how things were progressing. The quick and short version of everything is that it took a lot longer to get a hold of the car than anticipated. I've had it about two months now, but getting it shipped and other expenses after the holidays drained practically everything of my savings. It's only now that I'm really able to start saving up for a new computer. Hopefully, it won't take more than several months, but we all know life. I just want to say that I am completely committed to this blog and its stories. If I'm the only one making stories with Sims 3 in the years to come, if I have to move everything to the Sim 5 or the Sims 6 to finish things, or the like I will do everything I can to keep trucking on. With no computer to create content with currently though, I'm afraid this place will have to be quieter a bit longer. I do still get out chapters for Devout on Tapas if you've yet to check it out, but otherwise I can't do much. I did at least finish up the last CMW short story I had pictures for, however, as I'm sure you can see.

Sorry for another long hiatus, but I hope to see you all relatively soon with more content!

Color My World Short Story #10

I smiled at the little scene around me. The business that'd been the kitchen and dining room hardly ten minutes ago was gone. Prism, Desire, Coal, and Cerise had scattered off, and mom and dad had wandered into the spare bedroom to rest. They were feeling under the weather again, but they'd done their best to come down for Wisp's and Glade's birthday. The other family members who'd been here for the presents and cake had also left to return home. Wisp would meet up with his friends later to celebrate some more, but for now the festivities were over. Blaze and I stood talking while Wisp continually kept an eye on his watch for the alarm to go off. The important moment came, and the trilling beeping filled the area.

     "There we go," Wisp bounced Glade playfully. "Now you're officially a year old. Congratulations."

Glade laughed loudly at the bouncing and Wisp peppering her cheeks with kisses. I wandered over to sneak a kiss on her cheek too. Despite my best attempt at cleaning her face, she still smelled of the cake she'd messily smashed into her mouth. My lips pulled back a little bit sticky. A little bit of stickiness, of course, was nothing compared to be the mess she'd been exactly a year ago as the doctors pulled her out of me. What a day that'd been.
