Updates and Tags and Moodboards, oh my!

Hello!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Missed me? No? Well I missed you! โค I am once again finally back from the shadows, after almost two months of being inactive… I am really sorry about that! Honestly, I had been so overwhelmed with work, family, lack of inspiration, blah blah blah… I just had to take a big break for the sake of my sanity – considering I have any in the first place lmao! So, first things first, I’m so terribly sorry for failing to catch up with everyone’s stories and for disappearing like that for so long…! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I am now in the process of finally reading everything, so if you haven’t heard from me yet, beware: I’m soon coming for you mwahaha! XD …uuuh, I meant I’ll leave you nice cute little comments โค Yeah.

If, by any chance, anyone is wondering about the fate of the my next chapter, I also have good news about that: I am finally out of my major rut and have a plan on how I want the remaining story to proceed – apart from the usual “as soon as fucking possible” lol! So it’s only a matter of time until that’s ready and done and we move on to the happier stuff… finally!

Okay, I’m done with my surprisingly perky yet super cringe worthy apology/update, you won’t hear any of it again, I promise. I promise!

In the process of catching up, I was very happy to see that I’ve been tagged by Louise from Notjustabooksims for a pretty neat challenge, which is basically all sorts of questions answered by story characters. I love this kind of stuff, so of course I couldn’t leave this opportunity behind! I was breaking my head which one to choose for this, because I’m seriously done with everyone from Gen.2. *insert awkward laughter* . Sooo I decided to do it with… – spoilery stuff follows – one of my favorite characters from Gen.3, because why not? ๐Ÿ˜€ I love him โค โค (Oh oh, also this gen has finally got a name! It’s named “Rain on Ice” – and yeah, I had to mention that somewhere and no, the story does not involve professional ice skating :p )

GETTING TO KNOW: ANDREW

โ–บ Name? โž” Andrew Thorne.

โ–บ Are you single? โž” Yes.

โ–บ Are you happy? โž” It might sound clichรฉ, but here goes. “Happiness” is fleeting. I think it’s useless to constantly pursue such an unapproachable notion. But to answer your question, right now I feel quite calm and content.

โ–บ Are you angry? โž” I get that a lot, but no. I just don’t smile like an idiot whenever I’m thinking… You wouldn’t know anything about it.

โ–บ Are your parents still married? โž” No.

NINE FACTS

โ–บ Birth Place? โž” Bridgeport.

โ–บ Hair Color? โž” Black.

โ–บ Eye Color? โž” Brown.

โ–บ Birthday? โž” November 18th.

โ–บ Mood? โž” *smirks* Partly annoyed by your boring questions, partly amused by your childish attempt to analyze me.

โ–บ Gender? โž” I won’t even bother stating the obvious.

โ–บ Summer or winter? โž” Winter. I can’t stand the heat.

โ–บ Morning or afternoon? โž” I don’t really care.

EIGHT THINGS ABOUT YOUR LOVE LIFE

โ–บ Are you in love? โž” No.

โ–บ Do you believe in love at first sight? โž” Well, in my understanding, love is a term that implies many other simpler concepts such as passion, friendship, admiration, trust and loyalty – among others. So no, I don’t believe people are capable of experiencing such a complicated combination of, let’s call them emotions, at first sight.

โ–บ Who ended your last relationship? โž” Although it usually bothers me to answer a question with another question, I will make an exception for now: what exactly makes you think this is any of your business?

โ–บ Have you ever broken someoneโ€™s heart? โž” *glares* Again, none of your business.

โ–บ Are you afraid of commitments? โž” No.

โ–บ Have you hugged someone within the last week? โž” No.

โ–บ Have you ever had a secret admirer? โž” Not that I know of. If I knew though, they wouldn’t be so successful at being secret now, would they?

โ–บ Have you ever broken your own heart? โž” That sounds moronic. Why would I do such thing?

SIX CHOICES

โ–บ Love or lust? โž” There’s a time and place for each. That said, I find love much more intriguing.

โ–บ Lemonade or iced tea? โž” Both. As in, I hate both.

โ–บ Cats or Dogs? โž” This is tricky. Dogs are friendlier, but cats are more independent which is a huge plus. But honestly, I don’t really care for having to deal with pets.

โ–บ A few best friends or many regular friends? โž” The first one.

โ–บ Wild night out or romantic night in? โž” The second one.

โ–บ Day or night? โž” Night.

FIVE HAVE YOU EVERS

โ–บ Been caught sneaking out? โž” No.

โ–บ Fallen down/up the stairs? โž” Let me get something straight first. How exactly does one fall up the stairs?

โ–บ Wanted something/someone so badly it hurt? โž” *glares again* Next question.

โ–บ Wanted to disappear? โž” Yes. Every time I’m surrounded by idiots. It happens more often than you’d imagine.

FOUR PREFERENCES

โ–บ Smile or eyes? โž” Eyes. I can tell if a person is plain stupid just by the way they look at me.

โ–บ Shorter or Taller? โž” *raises eyebrow* This is a bit on the superficial side… but anyway, shorter would be best.

โ–บ Intelligence or Attraction? โž” I am attracted to intelligence, so I can’t see why these two should be mutually exclusive.

โ–บ Hook-up or Relationship? โž” Relationship. I don’t really appreciate complete strangers touching me.

FAMILY

โ–บ Do you and your family get along? โž” I get along great with the members of my family I chose to keep close.

โ–บ Would you say you have a โ€œmessed up lifeโ€? โž” Not in the slightest.

โ–บ Have you ever run away from home? โž” Not really. But I never returned home after university was over, if that’s relevant.

โ–บ Have you ever gotten kicked out? โž” No.

FRIENDS

โ–บ Do you secretly hate one of your friends? โž” I wouldn’t keep them as friends if this were the case.

โ–บ Do you consider all of your friends good friends? โž” Of course.

โ–บ Who is your best friend? โž” I consider every one of my closest friends equally good. I’m not in elementary school anymore.

โ–บ Who knows everything about you? โž” Maybe not even myself. Although I could say that my sister probably knows the most about me.

EDIT: Andrew would have never liked me, because I stupidly forgot to tag other people for this challenge :p I will immediately fix this mistake, and I tag:

  1. Lila from The Kingston Legacy
  2. Kymber from Noble Doubt
  3. Raymond from Set Apart
  4. Stephanie from Once Upon a Legacy
  5. Audrey from New Beginnings
  6. Carys from Twinsimskeletons
  7. Stormy from The Life and Times of the Willows
  8. Freejack100 from The Musketeers

Now back to our guest of honor! Hmmm… quite the grumpy bear, am I right? XD And, since now that my break is over there’s no shutting me up apparently, I also decided to do the OC Tag with this one as well โค Because… WHY NOT? (although he wasn’t too happy with my decision – let’s just hope he’ll get over it)

  1. What is your name? Like I said before, it’s Andrew Thorne.
  2. Do you know why you were named that? Yes.
  3. Single or taken? Single.
  4. Stop being a Mary Sue!ย …Are you stupid?
  5. Whatโ€™s your eye color? I’ve already answered that.

  7. ย Have you any family members? Yes.
  8. ย Oh, how about pets? I don’t have any.
  9. ย Thatโ€™s cool, I guess. Now tell me something you donโ€™t like? Idiotic, inefficient and melodramatic people. I also don’t appreciate being ordered around.

  21. ย What do you usually wear? I prefer casual pieces of clothing that fit well.
  22. ย Whatโ€™s one food that tempts you? Steak.
  23. Am I annoying you? Yes.
  24. Well, itโ€™s not over! *rolls eyes* Please get on with it.
  25. ย What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)? Middle class.
  26. How many friends do you have? Very few.
  27. What are your thoughts on pie? There’s always a better alternative; whether we’re talking about the chart or the dessert.
  28. Favorite drink? Black coffee.
  29. Whatโ€™s your favorite place? My own.
  30. Are you interested in anyone? No.
  31. That was a stupid question. Indeed.
  32. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean? In the ocean.
  33. Whatโ€™s your type? Someone unique, smart and interesting, someone who doesn’t like playing games… I’m not going to invest my time and efforts otherwise.
  34. ย Any fetishes?ย *gives death glare* …So nosy.
  35. Camping or indoors? *stands up* We’re done here.

But wait, there’s more!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Seriously…please don’t go just yet! You probably already know how much I love making moodboards for my characters and stories, so of course I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to make some for my beloved Gen.3 โค (And I know that I said that this gen would be an adventure/island one – of course it was so long ago that probably nobody even remembers that, lol buuuut guess what: that won’t happen! Lol – the story has officially moved to Boroughsburg, because I fell in love with this world as soon as I laid my eyes on it)

Sooo… without further ado, here are Andrew’s moodboards!

And because one character is not enough for me as far as moodboards go, here are six more from Gen.3 (two of which belong to our heir)!! โค

Character No.1

Character No.2

Character No.3

And yeah, if you managed to keep up with this irrationally huge, extremely silly post, this is everything from me (for now)! ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you so much for reading! โค โค

  1. Yess, we got an update! Andrew is… interesting, though he sounds so done with this world. He sounds like a pretty cold and calculating person. Oh, there is another game on Tumblr that we didn’t move here: https://loladiamond01.tumblr.com/post/182041537267/and-since-i-was-nominated-by-louise-aka Want to do it for Andrew, too? Lmao. Please don’t apologize for your absence. It’s okay and we totally understand. I catch up with everything, though tbh I probably shouldn’t with so many things going on in my rl rn.

    1. Yeah, cold is certainly a way to describe him lol! He’s very logical, but maybe this is only what happens on the surface ๐Ÿ˜‰ I really can’t wait to start with this gen lmao!
      Ooooh, more challenges! I like it, although I kinda have given up on tumblr after just two posts… it seems so hectic (it’s probably just me though)! Maybe I’ll reinstall the app to give it one more shot ๐Ÿ˜‰ Although I’m sure Andrew won’t appreciate me giving away his weaknesses like that, lmao!
      I think what happened is the avalanche effect – when you miss a couple of chapters and then they start piling up until you’re covered in snow/chapters, lol! I hate not commenting in time tbh!
      Thank you so much for reading and commenting Jowita! โค โค

  3. It’s great to have you back. Don’t worry about a thing. We’re happy to read anytime you’ve got something for us.
    Wow, Andrew really, really is a grumpy bear! ๐Ÿ˜› I’m glad you included two challenges because in the second one/because of the moodboards I got the sense that on top of being grumpy, he’s also… a bit of a nerd. That’s interesting!
    Oooh, and judging by those last moodboards, I’m thinking the heir is a woman? Maybe? He, he, I’m excited! I’m also excited for the last of gen 2, of course. Can’t wait to find out what happens. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I enjoyed this post a lot! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Yay!! It’s so nice to be back (although I seem to say that a lot lately… oh well)! ๐Ÿ˜€ โค
      Haha yup – he's both a grumpy bear and a total nerd, which is why I adore him so much, lmao! Let's hope he will eventually be as interesting as he is right now in my head..! XD
      And hmmm… okay yes, you got me! The heir will indeed be a woman! ^_^ โค I'm so glad you're excited, because I know I am too! ๐Ÿ˜€ The time to start this story is approaching at last, lol!
      Thank you so much for your lovely comment!! โค โค

  4. So glad to see you back! No apologies ever! But I loved this view into Andrew and the โ€˜otherโ€™ characters…..OMG….they all look very interesting and exciting. I canโ€™t wait! Thanks for the tag! It makes me want to do all of the main characters right now! Yikes! I may have to pick and choose a couple…

  6. Awww we missed you too! Haha, try not to stress yourself out, everyone knows that real life always comes first!
    Holy shit, I love Andrew already. To be honest, when I was reading some of his answers I was like… damn… did I write this?! That’s probably not a good thing looking at what other people have commented lmfao, but oh well. I always celebrate intelligence and rationality. I’m really looking forward to reading about him in the next generation! And thanks for the tag, I wonder who I should do… maybe I’ll save this for Gen 4!
    Those moodboards look AMAZING ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ All the matching colours are so darn satisfying ahhhh! I was gonna say which one is my fave but I honestly can’t choose. I’m so happy that there is another person who is obsessed with moodboards hehe.

    1. Yesss, I’m so happy you like him! โค The truth is I absolutely adore his character too – what's wrong in knowing what you want in life and not standing for any bs? And I kinda like his grumpiness too lol! ๐Ÿ˜
      Oooh I know what you mean about matching colors, I'm so ocd about that now haha (seeing my old ones makes me cringe lol)! Yay, moodboards ftw! ๐Ÿ˜€ โค
      I'm so looking forward to seeing your characters answer those questions – I know I had a grand time doing this challenge! ๐Ÿ˜„
      Thank you so much for your comment! ๐Ÿ’•

      1. If only I wasn’t so tired with the pills I take to treat my anxiety stuffs problems I would be here more present but instead of it I am sleeping daytime and I have so little time to play my game, I even don’t find any courage to reboot Miss V despite the ideas I got to make it better, I just wrote too sims in the city in my blog here in French I am so ashamed I block the access of my wordpress. I lost my interest maybe hear so we change a little bit with that kind of pills.
        I am so sorry for disappearing but I do my best for stayiung here with my friends.

  8. Andrew sounds quite well spoken and very stand offish xD I’m excited to know him more!
    Your moodboards are gorgeous. I love how the colours totally work within the entire board, too. I can tell you spent some time on them!
    I am SO excited that you’re back. I was actually thinking about your story the other day, though I can’t quite remember why. I’m sure I was listening to some music which made me think of Jesse, hmmm. Anyway, HII! And I did miss you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Haha yes, he’s quite cold and closed off – we’ll see if that’s all there is about him! I’m so excited to finally show him off more, lol! XD
      Aww thank you so much! โค Oh yeah, I spent quite a lot of time on those moodboards, but I got so much pleasure from making them! Thank you for introducing them to WP in the first place! ๐Ÿ˜€
      I'm so excited to be back too, and I missed everyone so much! I still have do much catching up to do; in fact, I started reading your chapters today – finally – but I was at work so I couldn't concentrate – so expect a $#%&load of comments from me soon! โค

  9. Your moodboards are beautiful!! Gosh I can’t wait to meet these characters, they all seem to have distinct personalities. I liked reading about Andrew, although we didn’t truly get to know much about him. He’s a closed off one, isn’t he? I like him ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. Thank you so much, I’m so happy you like them! :D<3 I can't wait to start writing about those new characters either, lol! I hope I can do them justice ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hmmm yes, Andrew is definitely a closed off one, you're right!

  11. I relate to you spiritually on the absences and apologies ๐Ÿ˜ญ You’ve done a much better job at keeping up with things than I did though, I loved this post! I’ve missed these challenges, they’re a great insight into characters that stories don’t always show. Speaking of which, well, well well. Hello there; I’m already a fan of Andrew. I love a realist with a bit of cynicism and snarkiness :3 His looks aren’t too bad either, if I do say so myself ๐Ÿ˜
    Those mood boards are goals! The colors and themes of each one are so cohesive and gorgeous ๐Ÿ˜ I am excited for the next gen, but am also quite enjoying the journey of this one ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes, it’s so hard to try to keep up sometimes, I totally understand! ^_^ Thank you so much!! โค I love those kind of challenges too, they do give you a more wholesome feel of the characters and I'm always up for that! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Aaaah, I can't wait to finally introduce him properly! His personality is the kind I've always wanted to delve into, so I really hope I'll do him justice ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thank you so, so much! โค โค It was so satisfying to work on them too – I'm all for color cohesion myself, lol!
