‘It’s the middle of nowhere, Mum!’: Getting Stuck In

An apology

I’m so, so, sosososo sorry that this update has taken a month to come, and it’s not even a Rivers update. Everything got a bit hectic; my parents have been having some decorating done which meant that my Simming computer was dismantled and popped into boxes and stored at the bottom of the rest of the room’s contents. Very annoying! Everything’s getting back to normal now, so *hopefully* everything should run smoothly for a while!

The final Louise chapter will be out on Monday/Tuesday, with the next Rivers chapter (the first official Dylan chapter) should be out the following Monday/Tuesday. I would try and get it out next Friday but I haven’t been able to play at all in the past month, so it would be really rushed and I don’t want to do that!

I’m going to try and keep things regular over the next few weeks, but everything’s a bit up in the air at the moment. I’m currently job hunting which isn’t going well due to the current economic climate, but I’m hoping to start volunteering with a charity next week to basically have something to do with my days! I’m not sure yet how much I’ll be working, but I’m pretty sure I’ll still have enough Simming and writing time left 😉

I hope you’re all doing well and are good and happy. I’ll be catching up with all the lovely bloggy madness I’ve missed out on over the weekend. Again, I’m really sorry for abandoning this for so long! I hope you enjoy the Louise chapter.

-Sian xx.

  1. Aw, Lou seems like a natural on a horse! I was all happy and proud of her until the last picture. 😦 Dylan, please realize that MELODY IS EVIL!
    Welcome back and great chapter! 😀

  2. Yippee! Welcome back!

    Another great chapter with Louise. Her poor mum must be so sad, but she’s taking it in stride, isn’t she?

    I’m interested to get the other side of the story, where we see Melody and Dylan’s side of the party. Hopefully it didn’t go to well, for Lou’s sake!

    I have a question: How do you make your posts be two pages?

    • Thank you so much! 🙂 You may see Melody crop up in person at the end of the next chapter, and once we get back to Dylan et al more of it will come out, but you’ll have to wait and see 😉

      If you do alt+shift+p where you want your post to split onto a new page, it’ll do it 🙂 BUT! It will also publish your post (annoyingly!), so only do it when you’re finished! Obv you can do it more than once in a post.

      • Also if you go into the HTML tab instead of visual and type it will split it into pages and it doesn’t publish it but you HAVE to do it in the HTML tab. You can also type so that on your homepage it won’t clutter it with the whole post and it will only show like a preview.

  3. Awwwwww Lou <333 I wish Dylan could see her! What a sweet girl she is! All that she's been through, losing her father and such, and even then she doesnt get mad at her mother, but wants to take care of her before herself… PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET RID OF MELODY! C'mon Lou! Don't let yourself be pushed around by her! You know she's not nice! Also…. I reallyyyy reallly realllly want Dylan to be with her! They would be perfect! (hopefully the party didnt go well! :P) <3333 Ahhhh im obsessed. You write really well, and I just LOVE when you update! 😀
    Speaking of which, welcome back! It's okay that this isn't a Rivers update… It's great getting to know Lou alittle better. Will u be doing this for Melody too?
    Good luck with your job hunting! My fingers are crossed for you! Oh, and I hope you enjoy your community service! It can be lots of fun! (:
    Don't worry about the lateness! We will all still be here waiting! Good luck! 🙂

    • Aww, thank you so much! 🙂 No, I’m not doing a Melody version of these – these were mostly so I could play with Pets and A.Plains without feeling guilty about abandoning the Rivers 😉 But they have given me an idea for Dylan’s storyline, so it’s all good!

      Thanks for you well wishing too, I really appreciate it 🙂 Fingers crossed! Hope everything’s going well for you too 🙂 xx

  4. Let me just say again, Welcome Back! You were missed! 🙂
    I think these mini chapters are great, it gives you a break from 24 7 Rivers, and it gives us great insight to other characters, that hopefully will become Rivers! 🙂 I have a feeling however, that Dylan will end up with Melody, he wont see until its to late that she isnt who he thinks she is! 😦 I cant wait for the next update, and I also cant wait for Dylan’s first chapter! 🙂

    • Haha, thank you so much! 🙂
      I’m really pleased you’re enjoying the little insight into Louise’s life! So glad 🙂 You’re going to have to wait and see what’ll happen with the Dylan/Melody situation, tee hee!!

  5. Welcome back! I’m glad you’re feeling better and everything’s getting back to normal for you!
    I love Lou! I so want Dylan to realise he should be with her! They’d be so adorable together:)

    I finished reading your Emmett Legacy, I tried to post a comment on your sims page but I haven’t been able to get on it! It was brilliant! I loved how you ended it and I loved that the original Emmett came to talk to Dan! So so sooooooo good!!!

    Good luck with the job hunt!:)

    • Aww, thank you! Everything’s slowly getting sorted out again, haha, my Simming computer is now all set up on a lovely new desk so I’m looking forward to getting stuck back in!

      Wow, thank you so much for finishing the Emmetts! That really means a lot 🙂 Yeah my Sims page can be a bit dodgy sometimes, blame EA! I’m soso pleased you enjoyed it, and I really appreciate you taking the time to read through everything, and I’m glad you liked Thomas coming back at the end! I was a bit unsure about writing it because I’d not really done anything ‘supernatural’-esque before, but I’m pleased you enjoyed 🙂

  6. I’m a little confused as to how the title links to what this chapter is about but that might just be because I’m insanely tired haha(: Can you explain it please? And Lou and Melody will definitely get into a fight over Dylan. Dylan will go out with Melody for a while and Lou will marry someone else and then it’ll just be Sheldon and Chloe all over again(: That’s what I think haha nicee chapter<3

    • Haha, it just meant that Louise was getting stuck into life on the farm despite her initial reservations about going – working with her Uncle, mucking out the horses, taking the produce to the grocers and so on. I couldn’t really think of anything else to call it, so it was a bit of a lame one!

      Haha, Dylan and Louise will *not* be Sheldon and Chloe mark two, I have way different plans for the two of them! *Mwahahah* But hopefully you’ll enjoy them as much as Sheldon and Chloe 🙂 So pleased you enjoyed the chapter! 🙂

  7. Oh gosh, don’t worry at all about being late with updates, Sian! I’m the worst with that kind of stuff. Try four months of no updates. I’m pretty embarrassed about that, still, but this school year hasn’t been as awesome as I thought it was going to be and when you’re not happy, you’re not really in a fit state to play games or write, unfortunately.

    Anyway, I’m loving this mini-series about Louise. I haven’t read the rest of the Rivers Legacy, yet. I’m slowly catching up, chapter by chapter, but I really hope she and Dylan end up together. She seems like such a sweetheart and Melody’s not good enough for Dylan, anyway.

  8. I feel like I can kind of relate to Lou as I had a best friend who treated me like garbage. Isn’t it also Weird that the guy I liked, (named DYLAN) asked her out? Anyway, sorry for sharing my life story. Great legacy 🙂
