Hello!! πŸ˜€ Did you miss me? Lol! I know, I know… where the hell is the bloody chapter? Booo!! Well, I’m sorry! 😢 I have to be honest: Life has been a bit crazy lately (not in a bad way, but still: crazy!), and that’s one of the reasons I haven’t been able to find the time to update the story yet.

But apart from this, there is another reason which involves the story itsself. The next chapter will have a two year time jump (I think I never properly mentioned that), so I had to put every single character through CAS, plus create some new ones. This alone, I’m sure you all know, is sooo exhausting! (Plus, finding decent male hair is sometimes a nightmare as I’ve come to discover.) After being finally done with CAS, I had no choice but to take some time off the game and I’ve just now been starting to get busy with setting up for screenshots again πŸ˜₯

Sooo the next chapter might take a little longer than usual, but I swear, I’m working on it! πŸ˜„ Until it’s ready though, I’ll leave you with some test pictures which may be an epic fail (I hadn’t realized the band was supposed to be one floor above to look good while performing, lol – oh well), but they show the point where we find everyone again. Also, major Jesse makeover alert! 😁

Please ignore that the new – male – singer has two microphones, lmao!
There are more tattoos that those currently showing πŸ˜‰ I like them, okay?

Aaand that concludes my lame update. 😁 I really hope to have the next chapter ready for you soon! Thank you so much for reading! ❀

  1. Oh, come on, it wasn’t lame! I enjoyed it. And that scene looks epic. Is the crazy connected to your wedding? You mentioned you were engaged at some point. New Jesse looks great!
    A lot can happen during two years…

    1. Awww thank you so much! I’m so glad you enjoyed it, although I would preferred if I had a new chapter ready 😭
      Yes! It’s connected to the wedding and these past weeks were so sooo hectic – oh well, I hope I’ll be able to have some time before crazy begins again, lol!
      Oooh, I’m so happy you like him! I really like his makeover too 😍 You’re so right that a lot can happen – at least career-wise πŸ˜‰

              1. Yeah, my extended family is a mess πŸ˜‚ Frank is going to be mentioned for sure as he overcomes this dang second phase of his character development and enters the third I continuously talk about and no one knows what I mean by that, lmao.

    1. Right? He turned out quite hot if I may say so myself πŸ˜›πŸ˜ Thank you so much! ❀ I figured if someone had a century to update (and without a warning), I'd like to know why, lol!
      I hope I'll get to the update soon – maybe break it to two smaller chapters just to be sure! πŸ™‚

  2. What, no chapter!?!?!
    JK JK JK JUST KIDDING!!
    I approve of the Jesse makeover (I am looking forward to seeing more of his tattoos πŸ™‚ ), and the new male lead singer is to swoon over! ❀ ❀ ❀
    You don't have to tell be about how crazy life can be. Been there, done that. At least it is not a bad kind of crazy. We will be here when life calms down.
    PS- Jowita put up a tool that helps find CC hair (because we all know that lack of good male hair). It is organized in a neat spreadsheet with pictures and links to downloads.

    1. Haha, I’m sorryyyy..! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Oh, you definitely will see more of Jesse’s tattoos! πŸ˜‰ I’m so glad you like his makeover (I tried dozens of hairstyles on him and nothing looked quite right) And that new singer is such a sweetheart (although it doesn’t really show), I already love him so much 😍
      Yes, it’s definitely not the bad kind of crazy, fortunately! Thank you so much! πŸ˜„ ❀ ❀
      And how did I miss that tool?! I must check it out asap! Thank you so much (and Jowita of course) for sharing! πŸ˜€ ❀

      1. It’s here I’ve stumbled upon it one time during CC hunt. Also, there is a neat folder with Rusty Nail clothes downloads here, although it only contains file names, so you will have to look through his site (the links there don’t work and the creations were kindly reuploaded there). I must say the dresses are really amazing and I used a lot of them on my celebrity wedding guests β™₯

          And thank you for the clothes link too – one can never have too many (especially now that I’ve discovered that clothes can appear in compact form in CAS thanks to NRaas MC)! ❀

            1. Oh, it just shows only one variation of the CAS items, so it doesn’t take too long for everything to show up – you can find it in City Hall/Nraas/Settings/CAS (I think that’s the path)! I should do a complete CC update too, I’ve used so many items with no credit, I feel really bad lol!

              1. It makes me feel so much better when I have everything neatly organized. I, however, started doing this almost halfway through gen2. I just went back and searched for the stuff I used in gen1. It wasn’t that hard since I have a good memory of visuals and also, I keep the number of stuff I use relatively small compared to some other simmers. I love having everything in place, too, in case I need to go back and redo something or start afresh. I know it works for me, but I know my ways are too much of pedantry or may even sound obsessive to others. I, however, think it brings about a lot of advantages both to myself, readers who may want to snach something (I also give direct links, not just creators’ names and I think it is good, too) and creators so that they’re given full credit. If only I was that organized in real life.

  3. I love Jesse’s new look! I might be biased because I always prefer short hair over long, but it makes him look less… babyish? I don’t know, but he’s really rockin’ the rockstar look πŸ˜€ The new singer looks great as well — I like how he’s a guy rather than a girl (like the last two?), which would be easier on Jesse I think… less drama lol.
    I totally get you on the male hairstyles. Out of the maybe hundred or so male hairs that exist, I only like about ten. I’m actually planning on creating my own hairstyles for Gen 4, but before that, I want to make objects and clothing for the upcoming weddings. I hope I can learn fast enough lmao.
    Speaking of weddings, how far away is your one? So exciting!

    1. Yep, he’s a hottie alright! 😍 I’m so proud of how he turned out, lol! I generally prefer shorter hair too, although most of them did make him look like a baby as well! (You’re so right about him having a babyish look!)
      I think it was the only solution for the band, to have a male singer (or maybe a female gay singer, that would have worked too)! Hmmm, more like the last five or six, lmao! πŸ˜‚
      You’re going to make your own cc? This is so exciting! I’m sure they will be nothing short of amazing! ❀ (The only cc I've ever managed to make is paintings, which is basically slapping an image onto an existing frame lmao – and they weren't even that nice! πŸ˜‚)
      The wedding is on July 21st, which is so close now that I think about it! Eeek! No, I'm excited really, lol! ❀

  4. No worries girl, take time to do you! Like Jowita, my first thought went to wedding prep. Best of luck with everything! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’“
    *gasp* a time jump! Oh, no :O That’s a long time, enough Jesse to stop caring about Skye and what she did… which I hope isn’t the case.
    Those photos look great! Jesse was always a babe but he’s even more so now 😏πŸ”₯ And I see you new lead singer, I see you 😍 Whenever you update, we’ll be here!

      Yep, the time jump was the plan from the start – but no worries, Jesse doesn't forget that easily, at least deep (very deep) down!
      Aah, I'm so glad you like how he looks! I know I do πŸ˜‰ 😍 The new lead singer is such a babe too – I can't wait to finally introduce him to you! ❀

  5. Seconding the ones saying this isn’t lame at all πŸ™‚ Oh my gosh, Jesse looks amazing! Like Lila, I prefer short hair on guys (apart from Nadir, I guess) so I’m biased as well. He’s rocking it. Also seconding the male hairstyles. I’m really picky with hairstyles to begin with…
    You take all the time you need and we’ll be right here waiting. And I can promise you that I’m exciting. Those screenshots look *amazing*!!! πŸ˜€ ❀

  6. Great pictures ! Jesse is more a rocker now than two years ago. I really can’t wait to read about the new double mic singer.
    No worries about the updates I am slow with mine too because some of my sims died by burning because of the heat of the Summer, so I have to replace them in town, I am also in cas a lot to choose all my sims summer clothes, and my cc to clean from the conflicts. (two same items installed in package and in sims3pack)

      1. It is I got a hundred of sims so it takes me time to change their clothes. I have no other choices. It’s summer and everybody got the right to be confy ahah.
        Indeed Jesse is beautiful this way . I am sure you’ve got plenty of gossip to share about the singer.

    New singer is hot…and Jesse…I liked his longer hair but he deff rocks this new look as well.
    Also, the more tattoos the better ahah!

      I was searching frantically for longer hair that suited Jesse (that was the idea at first) but alas, nothing looked quite right – plus, longer hair blocked his awesome new eyebrow piercing πŸ˜‰ And I couldn’t agree more about the tattoos!
