I was so excited about this chapter I couldn’t wait to write it. All day I have been reading and editing and I’m still unsure but if I waited to be 100% sure then I’d never post anything. It is a long chapter but I felt like I needed to put it all in one chapter and not split it up.
This chapter had to be rewritten as I mentioned that Yasmin’s mother had died so it took me off guard. I plan an outline for chapters and write them after I get the screenshots but I hadn’t planned on Gila, who was going to play a major role in Yasmin’s life, passing away.
So it’s been a few weeks and I have been busy writing and playing this legacy and reading some great stories so I haven’t worked on the site pages as much as I’d like to have.
When I stopped blogging a couple of years ago I also stopped reading blogs and playing Sims altogether. The Sims 4 just came out and while I was first to preorder and play a demo at a games expo I was devastatingly disappointed when the game was released. No toddlers. No pools. No thank you. My computer crashed shortly after and Sims 3 was wiped and the thought of reinstalling all the games and content again for the hundredth time (more like tenth) put me off especially now that I was pregnant and looking forward to being a mum.
But I’m babbling on so fast forward a couple of years and I hear toddlers have come to Sims 4 and my interest peaked and like a light bulb turning on Sims was all I could think about once again. I jumped onto my blogroll and found most authors stopped playing too so I had to start from scratch googling Sims legacies and searching the forums but it paid off and I found some awesome blogs to indulge my Sims addiction.
I feel it is about time I acknowledge these well deserved authors and update my legacy links page. If you haven’t already read these fantastic blogs I suggest you do there are a variety of styles and viewer ratings for all ages and I hope to aspire to their level one day.
I also just wanted to add that in real life I am super shy and if I am not very active commenting on your blog that doesn’t mean I am not reading and enjoying. That like button is my saving grace so if you see a butterfly I am loving the chapter.
I keep all your blogs open in tabs and at least once a week I make my way up then down so I can catch up quickly and be fair.
You will find all links in the menu at the top of the page under Legacy Links.
I was hoping to have this chapter up yesterday but when I opened my game things had changed. Ari and Yasmin were meant to go visit her mother for the weekend but sadly she passed away. I had no idea until I couldn’t find her in her house so I’ve had to rewrite this chapter almost completely. I should probably turn story progression off but I like the reality of it so I’ll leave it on.
So here is Ari’s chapter. It tries to explain the way he is, if this were Sims 3 he would have definitely had the workaholic trait. If I could have selected five traits I would have given him unflirty but he is family oriented and loves Yasmin.
I expect the next chapter to be up on the weekend, I’ve played just have to write but finding quiet time to do that is a bit tricky in my place and then I spend at least a day rereading and making edits although I’m never really sure it’s ever ready to be published.
I was happy to play for a little bit longer than expected so I will have even more juicy chapters up next week and I’m working on a side project, something small and light for when I need a break from Bashert so STAY TUNED! 😀
