Today is the lovely Gayl's birthday. Here is my little contribution to the celebration (that was organized by Beth).

Warning: NSFW

snatched from S.B. and Gayl

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.

Photo Mosaics: Edmond and Emily

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.

X-posted with Half-Imagined, my bjd site

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).

Open Letter

February 10th, 2010

Hey, everyone!

I wanted to take the time to touch base with you all since I've seen a lot of concern expressed in the previous post's comments as to whether I'd be continuing this site or not. The short answer is "yes".

Now for the longer answer.

I was gearing up to continue my Sims 2 story in January (as part of my New Year's resolution) but then I got sick. Not deathly ill or anything, but I was sick for the entirety of January. It really sapped my energy—both physical and creative. It's just been over these past few weeks that I'm starting to get back into the swing of things. I'm still not running at 100% though (even though I'm feeling a lot better) and I'm playing catch up on a lot of things I had to put on hold in January. I'm not sure when I'll have to time or the inspiration to continue the story, but I really hope it's not too long. (Oh, Muse, please return to me!)

Anyway, I'm not looking for sympathy here, I just wanted to let you know where things stand and to thank you for sticking by me so far.
