Since the game didn't come with a World, I just downloaded a new custom one, Queenstown, and started a new game. The family I'm playing is the Winchesters; Sam (yes, that Sam Winchester), his wife Suzy (who's really one of the many versions of Vanessa from [post] mortem I have floating around) and their kid Malcolm.
Malcolm loved to play, so I got a good use out of a lot of the new fun things for kids to do, like the Costume Box. Here he is as a T Rex. Rawr!
So what does all this mean for my little story?
I have nothing backed up. No saved games, none of the sims, nothing. I had multiple copies of my saved games on my old laptop, but that does me no good now. I'm pretty sure a friend of my dad's who's an IT guy can get all my stuff off even if the laptop's dead (he's done it before), but it'll be awhile before he'll do it I'm sure. When you get IT work done for free, it's not always fast.
So it may be awhile before any more [post]mortem hits the web. Maybe the charger will get here tomorrow and I'll be able to transfer everything to my new laptop with no problems. I hope so. There is so much on that laptop I need. If nothing else, I learned to finally back up my stuff. You'd think I would've learned by now considering all the computers I've gone through over the years, but whatever. Got a portable hard drive ready and waiting to hold all my stuff once I can get it all back.
On the bright side, this new laptop runs the Sims much better than the last one. And just in time for Generations too. And my Late Night disc was stuck in the old laptop and I finally got it out today. (Hint, it involved a paper clip.)
Anyway, whatever happens, I'll keep everyone updated. :(
So, I graduated and I'm starting my first real job soon. Yay for me. For you that means I will have more time to work on this story, which I had to put aside for the past few months unfortunately. I'm working on the next chapter, which is going to be extra long to make up for the absence. I really appreciate the people who read this story and comment on it. And if you're still out there waiting on the next chapter, I want what you're waiting for to be worth it.
Anyway, turns out I missed a lot of new stuff while I was away. There's a new EP coming out like next week. Someone figured out poses, and everyone went pose crazy. Been having a lot of fun playing with those. I wish some of the poses had better facial expressions, most of them are kind of blank in my opinion, but there are so many new things I can do with my photos now. Exciting!
So I threw Delia and Max in a room and played around with some poses 'cause I can. I don't know what to call this one. Something with Spring in the title. I don't know. They're pretty.
Oh, and new banner too! See you all in a week or so with a new chapter. Thanks again for waiting.
As always these photos are just for fun and do not affect the story.
Note: This special is a Christmas treat for everyone who's been patiently waiting for a new installment. This special is not quite a chapter and it's much longer than an interlude. It's more of a side story then. However, it will be considered canon because...well, you'll see why when you read it.

1) Just like last time there was a delay, school is a factor.
2) I had some game issues when I installed Late Night. As in, my save game got borked. I tried everything, but I couldn't get it back. I had a back up, it was a little old. So I have all my sims, but I lost some of my sets. It's not that bad, as all the ones I lost aren't ones I use often. But it's not exactly the best news ever.
So what does that mean for you dear reader? I'm hoping I can get the next chapter out over Thanksgiving. Hoping. At the very least it'll be an interlude. Until then, I have some pretty pictures to tide you over. I was fooling around with the new FX machine and Twallan's Debug Enabler since the Chaos painting I use to take my photos hasn't been updated for Late Night yet. The photos were so pretty, I made it into a little photo shoot. I call it Fall into the Gap 'cause they remind me of those new Gap ads.
I was most excited about creating a band and hitting up all the clubs. So I created a band of Virtuoso Party Animals. And not just any band, Sex Bob-omb from Scott Pilgrim. That's right, Scott, Stephen Stills and Kim Pine. If you don't know what I'm talking about, do Universal a favor and see the criminally underseen film, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Or read the graphic novels. Or do both. They're all great.
Anyway, I set up my sims in an apartment, got them some instruments and let them loose on Bridgeport.
( We are Sex Bob-omb! 1! 2! 3! 4! )
So this interlude wasn't always an interlude. I wanted to do something Halloween-esque, even though it's Spring in [post] mortem time. It started out as a Rocky Horror themed photo shoot (I've watched the movie three times in the last few weeks after discovering it was on Netflix Instant Watch), but somewhere down the line it became an interlude instead. I think it's the longest one I've done so far. I like to think of it as a bridge between the chapter I posted last week and the next one.
