I did some site maintenance over the last few days. There were a lot of images that were broken and not showing up, but they should now all be fixed. Please let me know if you stumble upon any other images that are broken…or anything else that may not be working.
It has been strange coming back to this site after being gone for so long. It really set my nostalgia aflame and made me miss working on my story "The Monster and the Maiden". It's a story that I'd like to come back to sometime; I'm not sure how I'd go about it though. I don't know if I would want to do just a text version of the story, although I think I'd really miss having images associated with it (even though that could be one of the most frustrating part of putting the story together) or if I continue mixing text with screenshots then do I use Sims 2 (which might not be an option if I can't find my old downloads and saves) or do I try to use Sims 3 or Sims 4 (even though that might prove to be too strange since the characters wouldn't look the same anymore). These are the thoughts that always trip me up and make me put the idea of working on my story on the back burner again.
Anyway, just thinking out loud.

And now it's Tahlvin and Brandee's turn to be examined. A little word of warning, a couple of the pictures are a little risqué, but these characters did start out in an erotica story so I had to incorporate a sample of that into their mosaics. There might also be a double-entendre thrown into the mix. Can you find it?
I should explain that Tahlvin was born in Seattle back in 1900, at the tail end of the Klondike Gold Rush (during which Tavia, his mother, and Koryll, his father, got reacquainted). So, that's why the caption to the picture that I used as his birthplace is titled "Seattle – gateway to the Klondike". I thought a long time about using an actual photo of Seattle circa 1900, but Tahlvin has always struck me as being very modern (he readily adopts the fashion and customs of whatever era he's in) so I decided to go with the picture of present day Seattle instead.

snatched from S.B. and Gayl
So, I'm doing a photo mosaic meme again; however, this time I'm using it as tool to examine my characters (namely Edmond and Emily) in depth. This version of the meme was started by S.B and Gayl. Thanks for the brilliant idea, ladies!
It was a little more challenging than I thought it would be. I was sure that I knew my characters really well, but they surprised me with some of their answers. It was an interesting exercise and great way to put myself into their minds.

Warning: If dolls creep you out, then I suggest you don't continue reading this post.
Author's Note: Yep, this is the surprise I mentioned in the previous comments' sections. Even though this photostory has dolls in it instead of Sims, since it deals with characters from The Monster and the Maiden story line, I've decided to post this here. Does this take place in the same reality? More or less, I guess. This story could be considered as taking place in the future, after the main story is over (I'll do my best not to reveal any major spoilers from the main storyline).
