Merry Christmas!



Hello all!

So. I'd hoped to have a chapter to release prior to going on vacation, but, alas, I was unable to finish shots. SO that chapter will be released when I get home from California. Spending the holidays with my husband's family.

In the meantime, I have a few goodies to tide you all over (hopefully) until my return.

Simful - Codename: Danger edition

After Hours: Connor Morvant

After Hours: Riley Dupree

After Hours: Victor Murphy

I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! See you all soon!

Thank you,

Word Count: 4,177
Rating: R
Type: Series
Summary: Joey's awake and the pack learns some startling information behind his shooting. It's Grammy night and the band prepares to take the stage by storm.
Warnings: Language, suggestive material, violence, strong sexual content, adult content, adult situations, nudity, picture heavy


“And the last thing I remember was you and Luna standing over me,” Joey recalled the scene for his new audience of Caleb, Kaya, and Charlie.

“What did the voices say?” Charlie asked.

“I—I can’t remember. I’ve tried but every time I do there’s this…gap.”

“I think,” Kaya started with a sigh. “I think I may know a way to find out.”

Joey glanced over as Kaya stood and grinned. “Damn, Luna. You’re huge! How long was I out?”

“Not as long as you will be if you call me that again,” she smirked and moved to his bedside, placing her hand on his. “I’m glad you’re well enough to…” her eyes closed briefly. Kaya inhaled deep and her body began to convulse. All at once a dissonance of thoughts zipped through her mind. Whirling around her head in a bout of lights, sounds and scents and she fought to find her footing in the bustle of activity.

“Kaya?” Caleb called for her with growing concern as he moved to her side.

“Well what’s the word?” Finn asked as his brother turned back towards them.

“That was James back home,” Emmett sighed, placing his phone into his pocket. “He says he’ll get a couple guys and keep an eye out for Xander’s friend. He’ll call if anythin’ happens. In the meantime, are we really keepin’ this bleedin’ tick alive? It’s clearly a ploy tae save his sorry arse!”

“Aye. But it be well we know for sure,” Eoghan replied. He moved forward, lifting Xander’s head until his eyes fell on him and sighed. “Ye hear that, boyo? Ye got yeself a reprieve for now. But don’t ye worry, lad. It won’t be long before those beautiful bagpipes are singing and the sounds of Londonderry fills the air.”

“What do we do until then?” Finn asked, seeing the wounds they’d inflicted on him already start to heal.

“I guess, until then, you two can have more fun. I, on the other hand, need tae be gettin’ home. I have other matters tae attend.” Eoghan grabbed his coat and started for the door.

With a nod towards his brother, Emmett cracked his knuckles and grinned at the beaten Xander as he took a step forward. “Now then. Let’s see just how loud we can make you scream.”

Happy 4th Anniversary!


Hello readers!

So today, on After Midnight's Fourth year anniversary, I was hoping to publish an episode. Unfortunately, with Outbreak going, I ran short on time and only managed to get half of the next After Midnight's shots done. I won't be able to post it tonight since trick-or-treaters have begun to ring the bell. But I will definitely have it ready for tomorrow.

However, I still couldn't let the day pass without wishing Kaya, Caleb, Connor, Eli and the gang a Happy 4th Anniversary and to, of course, thank you all for following us and our misadventures!

I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!

“Ah, here she is now,” Vaughn stood as Kaya and Caleb entered the room. “Kaya, I’d like you to meet Roberta. Roberta, this is the pack Luna, Kaya and you know my son, Caleb.”

“It’s nice to meet you,” Roberta smiled, extending her hand. “I’ve heard a lot of wonderful things about you.” Kaya’s eyes moved to Vaughn. He shrugged and stepped closer to his son’s side.

“Well I hope Vaughn hasn’t over embellished. I’m very grateful that you came; we both are,” Kaya replied, and tugged at Caleb’s hand.

“It’s great to see you again, Bertie,” Caleb greeted her with a smile before glancing down at Kaya. “So, will you be staying with us indefinitely?”

“Not today, please,” Kaya remarked as she smelled Vaughn approaching. “My nerves are already frayed, I have a meeting today with another Alpha and I’m hoping it’s not the start of some new battle since we have enough of that already. Caleb is consumed with looking for new leads on who attacked us and why. I have two prisoners chained up in concrete cells beneath my feet. On top of that, my manager, Ulrick, called and told me he set up a photoshoot with a music magazine for the band later on this week and I have been struggling to keep my hormones in check at home. I can’t imagine being in public right now. I’m trying to decide if this nursery should be pink, blue or neutral all while I have a couple of overactive pups playing ping-pong in my belly. Today is not the day to mess with my head.”

Status update

Hello Readers!

As some of you already know (those who also read Cold Blooded) I made an announcement concerning the lack of updates.

I know it's been a while since a real update, and I apologize for that. Whenever I think I'm on top of things, something else pops up and gives me a fat slap of reality. Recently my Mom moved in with me and my husband. She's been bed-bound for nearly three years and needs a lot of assistance with daily living. It's been a real struggle and has left very little time for anything else.

I don't want to make promises about when I'll update because to be honest, I have no idea when I'll find the time to. I won't abandon any of my stories. And I will continue working on them as much as I can whenever possible. I appreciate everyone for understanding and thank you for sticking it out with me through everything. :)

Status Update

Hello Readers!

I know you thought I up and disappeared (again). But NOPE! Can't get rid of me that easily. Yes, I am still around. Here I was sitting thinking that now with one story ended, things would get better, easier and more manageable with 2 active stories. HA! Boy was I wrong. Welp. Basically things seem busier (how in the heck does that happen?)  or maybe with one less thing on my plate I am just now noticing? *shrugs* Either way, I have gone from one mishap to the next (computer freezing, reorganizing/redecorating my home, food poisoning, modem death and a tiny, smidgen of brain fart/writer's block). BUT I am back and at work on both After Midnight and Cold Blooded. Currently, I am building sets for the next updates (fun, fun).

So. Until then, enjoy a small preview of those aforementioned lots.

Hmm...so much for gender neutral? :O Spoiler alert! I guess Amanda was right after all!

The commotion caught her ears and Kaya stepped into the hall, pushing through the few wolves still crowding the small area. She glanced at the men at her door and then to Connor who stood fists clenched, brows furrowed in a deep v and growling. Sighing, she moved closer, keeping the redhead at her back in an attempt to shield the strangers from what could quickly become a losing battle with a wild wolf. “I’m the Luna here, what is it that I can help you with?”

“As I said, I want me sister, nuthin’ more.”

“Please, let’s step into the office for more privacy,” she motioned in the direction of Caleb’s study. “Find Vaughn, have him meet me,” she whispered into Amanda’s ear.

“Yes, Luna.”

“Wake up, we have to go,” Byron’s voice echoed against the hollow walls of the bed and breakfast, rousing Lucy from slumber. Without a sound, she quickly began gathering up her belongings. “Leave it!” he hissed and grabbed her abruptly and together they rushed out the door, disappearing into the woods behind the establishment. Running as fast as they could they pounded over wet mud and dried leaves, putting as much distance behind them as possible. “Move!”

“I am moving!”

“So is this where we keep the extra booze?” Connor asked, stepping up behind Kaya as she gazed off out the window. Charlie, Caleb, Sophie and the others were all in the backyard celebrating the news of the pregnancy while she hid away in Caleb’s study. “You left about fifteen minutes ago to grab more liquor and no one’s seen you since.” Kaya turned to face him and tried to paste a smile on her face but failed. “Why so glum chum? This is a celebration.”

“Maybe for some, but not me.”

“What? Peaches, you’re having a baby!”

“Or babies, according to Mandy. She thinks I’m carrying an entire soccer team in my belly.”

“Well, I wasn’t gonna say anything but, you are looking kinda chunky.”

Caleb and Kaya rushed through the front door of the manor, nearly knocking into the assembled group of wolves awaiting their return. Caleb had howled, alerting the pack. In his communication he made them aware of the situation, what they’d discovered and readied them for what was about to happen next. “Joey’s locked in a room on the second floor of the old shoe factory. We have to get to him before he’s discovered. I sensed there were at least three others in the building. Charlie, Connor and I will lead a small group back to Mystic Springs to get him. Sophie, I need you and Karri to get to the woods, find as much Dogroot as you can. Kaya tried healing him but the effects of her blood will only sustain him for so long,” Caleb instructed.

We're back!

Hello everyone!

As you may have seen, my computer has arrived and I have finished configuring the graphics, moving the CC and save files and basically getting everything ready to start shots again.

Tomorrow I will begin taking pictures for the completed pieces and should have a new chapter ready to go for each story next week! YAY!

Thank you for being so patient with me and just being there in general! You have no idea how motivating it is knowing someone is out there anxiously waiting and loyally reading my work.

So, to show my gratitude, have a teaser of a leading man. 


Teaser Caleb!

Bonus:


I just loved the contrast of colors around Connor :)

Lights, camera...ACTION!

Hello all!

Well after building my dream rig on February 6, being told it wouldn't rush shipment on February 11 as I'd hoped and then sitting and waiting through the Longshoremen's strike in Long Beach, California and then not getting notified of the build until February 24 and THEN having to sit and wait all day today March 3 for the delivery (Seriously, 7:00 p.m. delivery time?? Way to put me at the bottom of the list!)-- IT'S FINALLY here! (Damn, run-on sentence much?)

That's right! The birthday present I've been dying to get my hands on has finally arrived, in style...and bulking mass at that. I am so VERY pleased to announce that this beautiful piece of machinery is now in my home and currently updating as I type.

Shots of the Beast:


Weighing in at 55lbs and 22 inches of pure bliss! The TOWER of POWER, the MACHINE from my DREAM, ladies and gentlemen it's...Red Lightning! (That got weird fast). And really it's blue but um...The Beast from the East is probably more appropriate. Unfortunately, I ordered RED LEDs and they gave me BLUE. I wanted everything to be red & black (hence the keyboard and mouse). But I guess that's my only complaint thus far. Other than that, it's kicking ass in every stress test (WOOHOO!) I put it through every stress test I know (Furmark, Memtest, CPU/GPU, Prime95, Realtemp, OCCT, Hitachi & HW) and it passed with flying colors!

Specs:
i7-4790K
Corsair CX750 PSU
16 GB RAM
3TB HDD
LG 14x Blu-ray
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
Nvidia GTX 980
Asetek 590LX 360mm Liquid CPU (push/pull)
24" ViewSonic VX2452mh (2ms response time plus game mode)
Windows 8
Overclocked ;)

(x2) since the hubs wanted one as well. The only difference in the systems, he has a Thermaltake case and I have an AZZA Fusion

And a bonus shot of Jason's:


Jason's was correct...all blue and black. Le sigh :(

 --------------------------------------------------------


And it is OUT with the old! Ignore the wire spaghetti under the desk...I haven't gotten around to tying/taping/concealing. (UGH! STOP LOOKING!) 


Goodbye my dearest Widow. You were the perfect companion for 7 years but I have found another.

Ok, so I couldn't say goodbye forever. I'm using the old rig as a streaming PC. It sits between me and the husband.

Welp! After I finish all of the updates and such, I'll start the long process of moving CC and installing my games. Hope all that goes off without a hitch (fingers crossed). And then it's update city for me :D

NO BAN ON BLOGGER!


VICTORY IS OURS!!!

As many of you were aware, Google had plans to implement a ban on sexually explicit/adult content blogs. Well I am pleased to announce: GOOGLE HAS BACKED DOWN!

Their offices, emails and phones were CLOGGED with bloggers who have had accounts with them for years discussing their displeasure about the change. And as such, 4 days after they announced they were closing down R-rated blogs, they have changed their minds.

If you have the “Adult Content” filter in place on your blogs, they will no longer be set to “private” as per their earlier announcement. They do ask that you keep the warning in place, however. And it appears the only blogs that will be affected by this are ones promoting commercial porn.
Hello everyone, 
This week, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy. We’ve had a ton of feedback, in particular about the introduction of a retroactive change (some people have had accounts for 10+ years), but also about the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities. So rather than implement this change, we’ve decided to step up enforcement around our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn.  
Blog owners should continue to mark any blogs containing sexually explicit content as “adult” so that they can be placed behind an “adult content” warning page.
Bloggers whose content is consistent with this and other policies do not need to make any changes to their blogs.
Thank you for your continued feedback.  
The Blogger Team
This is a great day for bloggers alike! Congratulations everyone! :D

Goodbye to Blogger

Hello readers,As a lot of you know by now, Blogger is enforcing a new policy soon concerning the censorship of nudity and sexually explicit content. You can find more information about it here. Basically, the change would set my blogs to “private” which would only be accessible by readers who share their email with me to be added to a reading list (meaning: no more lurking and no more anonymity). Because of this, several other writers in the Sims’ community have chosen to preemptively set their blogs to private and move their work to other hosting sites (such as WordPress or Tumblr). I, unfortunately, do not have the flexibility of doing this.I currently maintain 15 blogs on Blogger for several different stories, all of them containing some degree of nudity, sexual explicit, or adult content. I just cannot move EVERYTHING in order to protect the integrity of the story and I cannot simply make each offending post private, as per their suggestion. Making one post in violation of the new policy private would be like watching an episode of your favorite television show where the first 30 minutes is muted or blacked out. It undermines the author’s hard work and you, the reader, are in a position of not understanding what is happening because of missing information.A few years ago, I made the leap FROM WordPress to Blogger because of the added design features and endless capacities for customization. It was a lot of work and took quite a while to get everything right but I did it and now it seems that all of my time and effort was for naught.At this current time, moving would be a real pain involving an abundance of energy and I don’t know if I can devote time to doing that right now. So in light of the coming changes and if it turns out:Note: We’ll still allow nudity if the content offers a substantial public benefit. For example, in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts.does not apply to me as a writer, it would be my duty to inform all of you that this may mean the end to many of my stories as I won’t be able to move them all at once.Congratulations, Google Blogger. You have completely alienated a large group of writers, artists and readers because apparently having the adult content notice in place is no longer enough. In instituting your new policy you are informing your public you care nothing of their freedom of speech and expression and, in my opinion, can no longer use the phrase “Happy Blogging” in good conscience; there is nothing “happy” about this.~ Daijah

PC/Story Status


Welp, Ladies and Gents, as you can see the status of my order is on pause. The computer parts are stuck on some dock in Long Beach (because of port authority problems) and have delayed the construction of my computer. Because of this, the "Expected ship date: 2/19/2015" has been pushed. From what I'm hearing now, they may not have the parts in stock until next week which means I won't have a ship date until March.

Some birthday present right? (Yep, "Sales post date: 2/6/2015" is my bday!)

Anyway, (glass half full) what this means is I have more time to write (or stare and "pretend" to write) chapters of After Midnight, Codename: Danger, and Cold Blooded.

Story updates:

Codename: Danger - I have written Chapter 9 and Chapter 10 (which has been broken up into 2 parts, so far, pt. 1 is complete and I am working on pt. 2). It looks like by the time the computer arrives, I'll have this story completely written and will only need to do shots, YAY!

After Midnight - So far, there is a whopping total of 4 written chapters for this story. Which means, updates should get back on track soon.

Cold Blooded - As mentioned before, this story is relatively easy to write and since most of my time has been devoted to finishing CND, I haven't completed many chapters for this one. I believe I am sitting on a total of 3 written. But once CND is done, I'll have way more time to focus on my other projects!

I feel lately all I am doing is sitting and waiting and idle hands...let's just say my brain does not allow me to take many breaks and because of this there could possibly be way more stories running around up there than I can handle. Yikes! Well, that's all the news I have to report. I swear I'm having the shakes now though from lack of Sims.

Updates soon (ish)

Dear readers,

Surprise! I'm still here! I know, you probably thought I fell off the face of the earth but that is simply not true. What has been happening? Well, I was doing school which I can say I've finally finished the bulk of and it was taking a huge chunk of my time. On top of that I am still, sadly, having game issues. But, do not fret, I am building a new system that will hopefully be done before the end of February and I can try and get back on track with everything.

Simming for me right now? I cannot go in game for more than a few minutes before it freezes my entire system and forces me to warm boot or force reset. I hate it. I don't know what is happening with the game/computer but I am pretty sure it has something to do with my rig being 7 years old (yep you read that right.) In 2008, I built a gaming monster that could withstand anything that was thrown at it. I didn't start to see a decline in some things until just recently and, amazingly enough, if it's not the Sims game, the Widow still outshines with MMORPGs and other games (i.e. HD resolution, awesome frame rate, and absolutely zero lag).

Story updates:

Codename: Danger - Last update: 07/31/14 - Would it surprise you to know that I am currently writing the last chapters of this story? Yeah, I know! Surprised me too. But after I found myself with time on my hands, my fingers got busy making sure Yvette, Brett, Dustin, Ryan and Victor came back to life, so to speak. I have completed chapter 9 and I am now working on the 2-part (thus far) finale and epilogue. I can't believe this story has not been updated since July...wow. So crazy how quickly time gets away from me. But, hopefully, I can crank out the last chapter and have it ready for shots before my new computer arrives! I am like a kid on Christmas morning I tell ya.

After Midnight - Last update: 01/06/15 - While this one had some traction this month, it stalled again. UGH! I know, I know. It's terrible. I do have a few chapters written that are awaiting shots but, as stated, my game does not allow me to play for longer than a few minutes so taking shots becomes impossible. I will be able to update this story in February once the new computer arrives. Taking the shots should (hopefully) be rather easy.

Cold Blooded Last update: 11/02/14 - I haven't written anything for CB. *runs and hides* Is it safe? What started out on such a hot streak seemed to have fizzled in a few short months. I've been very busy with other projects (including the un-aired collaboration of Changes of Season). I will start writing for this story again. Unlike my older ones, this one is not so bad to work with. The writing comes pretty easy and shots aren't too bad either.

The Chameleon - Last update: Un-aired - This story I've had the greatest success with. I have the first season completely written. I've even written 3 chapters into the second and planned the other seasons (minus the 5th). On top of that, I have the epilogue pieces done and pretty soon (when the new rig gets in) I'll be able to start shots. Although this story is not planned to air until after the last episode of Codename: Danger, I will have a HUGE head start on this one. I am determined to not let writer's block end me again on my work.

I want to thank each and every one of you for your support and for sticking with me through the cold months. I know how inconsistent my updates have been and I hate having droughts like these. I will work harder to keep them from happening again and a new computer will go a LONG way with that.

Thank you again everyone and Happy New Year!
