I just logged in there for the first time in months (for reasons...)

Just to say, while I never post anything here, I am active on Tumblr as lauraplayssims.

Awesome! Anyway, I hope anyone who reads this is having a nice holiday season.

Giving the legacy thing another shot... this time, with less ambition/drive to post regularly. Intended to be observational, more than anything else. All the same, I hope it appeals - and that I continue it. I'm damned if I don't get beyond generation three this time!

I'd like to maintain an LJ. Seems like the logical thing to do when you play TS2 and you've outgrown and outlasted the Exchange/WordPress isn't that sim-friendly/Tumblr annoys the living SHIT out of you you want to share your pixel dollies' lives somewhere. I'm pretty awful at staying at touch with the community though. I lurk like an excellent video game boss but actually talking to people? Online? No sirr-ee, I'm far too socially awkward for that. Give me real life humans any day!


Basically, I'd like to keep this wee journal alive but I don't know if I have the time/patience/remembering skiils to do so. I'm only able to post this now because of my computer being better at recalling passwords than I am.

So. What to expect? Maybe legacy updates (though I'll have to retrieve the AL sims from the depths of old back-up hell), pic-spams and the odd pondersome post. Probably more likely is timid comments on other people's legacies and further lurkage.

Have an aul' picture from my new neighbourhood just for colour.

The Lunettes are still living in terrible conditions, still having babies - and are still alive, strangely. Who knows? Maybe there'll be a 2.1 eventually! :) Either, here's chapter 1.3, guest starring a highly dependent nanny, warring witches and heavy amounts of stale cake...

Made it to 1.2! ...and there ought to be a 1.3 too, since I've played ahead.

You want some simblies? They've had all their shots, they're mostly baggage-free and they're probably breedable ...probably.

One of my many goals this summer - I swear, this year's list is more or less the same as last summer's; says a lot about my productivity last June/July/August - is to play through and finish a legacy. A pretty easy task, you'd imagine. Not if you have my attention span. The furthest I've gotten to in any of my prior attempts is the third generation, which is the stage where either (a) my computer swallows the game and I lose all my progress; (b) I get bored and move on to new things or (c) I get a life and promptly get sucked into doing real life stuff, leaving my poor heirs, spares and spouses to shrivel in a corner of my desktop. For various reasons, I'd like to break that cycle and crank out a lasting sim dynasty that reaches the golden pinnacle of ten generations. And - because I want to also get this journal off the ground and running - I'm going to bust out my narrative skillz and post the doings of my pixel dollies here.

I'm feeling a lot out of practice, actually. My other attempt at a written legacy was The Belle Metamorphosis a couple of years back, which in retrospect is a little too lulzy for my current tastes. I'm still fond of the tales of Belle and her sizeable brood, but I'd like this legacy to have a different feel about it. Though, coming to think of it - blonde female founders, black-haired spouses - they're already looking similar. Ehhh, repetition - and digression. Legacy now?

So I finally got around to setting up a LiveJournal - something I've been meaning to do for quite a while now. It's confusing as hell. I'm only just about down with WordPress, so moving here and going back to that state of noobish cluelessness is a bit frustrating. Still, I'm all for change and fresh starts and reinvention and whatnot, thus here I am.

I'm Laura. I'm female, in that weird stage between being a teenager and adulthood and like increasingly many of my peers I spend a borderline unhealthy amount of time on the computer and internet. I don't have many quirks, bar some surprisingly in-depth knowledge of Pokémon, celebrities and paranormal fiction. I've been coming out of my shell a lot recently, in real life and virtually, which has lead me to setting up this. I should mention now that this is going to be one of those simming journals - not exclusively, since I like sharing some other random things too, but consider yourselves warned: the pixel humans are coming. It's also going to be somewhat of a seasonal affair. It's summer; I'm done with college, so I need something to occupy me if my current job search proves fruitless. When autumn comes along, I'm pretty sure I'm going to revert back to lurk mode.

What am I going to be posting? - predominantly sim pictures, I should think, though I am interested in giving something back to the community; so some dodgy self-made custom content might also appear. There might be a few real life anecdotes thrown in, as well as possibly a bit of writing - though I'll probably stick that somewhere else. I'd really like for this to stay sim orientated.

I don't have much to say other than that, at the moment. Hopefully this isn't going to be a one-post wonder kind of journal, but I've learned not to promise things these days. But anyway - TTFN, and next time I might have something more substantial to offer. :)
