Future Chapters – 5/21/21

Hey guys! I will work on Chapter 14 of TCXDR soon, but right now I will work on a future chapter, Chapter 17! 😀 Reason?

Well, are you one of those people who daydream about their plotline and go so far ahead of the timeline that the current part of your plotline seems too boring now? I definitely am, lol. This can also cause one to lose interest in a story since it seems too boring. Most of the time the daydream plotline is way t0o exaggerated from the audience’s expectations and wouldn’t work in a final draft of a story, xD.

This happens to every story I write. 😉 When I am writing just one sentence, I suddenly get an idea for the future, even if it has to do with another similar story. Then I jump out of my chair and start another one of my random jogs around the house thinking about the daydream plotline. Yes, I’m weird, xD. Even stories that don’t exist (stories that I have ideas for but haven’t jotted down yet) have this phenomenon. I am not sure why I daydream so much about my stories, especially the future, but I am assuming this happens to other people, too! 😀

Also, you can’t really push someone to work on a chapter if they don’t feel like it, lol. Otherwise, the chapter will most likely be garbage. 😛 If they feel like writing something else (hence the multi-stories thing :D), then that is perfectly okay. So if I want to work on a future chapter, that is okay, too.

TRD and PE have future chapters already which I only need to fine-tune then I can publish! 😀 TCXDR and Harmony do not have future chapters so any chapters I churn out of my imagination factory will probably be horrible first-draft chapters. 😁 So to remedy this I will work on a few future chapters based on my daydream plotline. Then later on if the story goes a different route than the chapter I can just tweak it instead of creating a new chapter from scratch. Therefore chapter posting will be much shorter and I won’t have to stress myself out or you won’t have to wait for so long like right now. 😀 I am also working on The Runaway Demon currently since I haven’t worked on it for a while now, so I am fine-tuning some chapters. Alternative writing is also one of my quirks, xD since I usually change interests every once so often. I am working on TRD while I am writing this post and Chapter 17. LOL.

Chapter 17 was something I was thinking of and it is a very juicy chapter indeed since it reveals some hidden tidbits, especially about Andromeda. And even more interesting, it’s in Shiew’s POV! 😀 It’s mostly just a talk chapter and not much action, but there will be two people who talk about some stuff about Xim and Millan, and there are a lot of things Xim or Millan don’t know about, so definitely Shiew would know nothing, haha. But Shiew would be eavesdropping on them and learn some important info that no character we currently have met knows. 😀 Of course, she doesn’t put together every dot, but some things make sense to her and are even alarming to her, lol. Who wouldn’t be alarmed when they learn about crazy killer ‘Dromeda? 😜 Shiew also gets found out but there are no bad consequences because the two talking people are nice ladies, but they do definitely keep some secrets from her. Then Shiew shares the awful war between parents and Xim (and Leigh, too, don’t forget! ;)) with them because apparently, these two ladies already know who Shiew is! 😮 Seems too interesting not to write down immediately, right? 😊 Hopefully, things get spicier with Chapters 15 and 16 so Chapter 17 fits the bill perfectly.

(Just so you know, There are no pictures for the future chapters but when I do get to that point, I can just insert the pictures without having to summon the huge block of text from my already tired brain that had to undergo the hard process of Sims 4 picturing-taking! 😀 Luckily for me, I don’t use so many poses or have so many sims in one household (eight is the max for me) and my performance is fine (especially with the new hard drive), so it will be easier. but honestly, it is still hard for me to wait a few seconds to boot it up, load into the Sims 4 (the awful loading screens! Ugh, those are forever in my hate book since they always used to be a minute long with the old hard drive, which is also why I never left the lot before 😆) and take pictures, xD. So kudos to everyone who has so much motivation to pose every single sim necessary for their simlit stories! :D)

(TRD) I

Zeka woke up in a new place. Is this the Dead? she wondered. It was Ician thirteenth as far as she knew.

She then saw three people looking down at her. One was a vampire, seemingly a very powerful one. Another was a knight, with a lot of heavy black armor on. The last was a very warty old witch, who was holding a cup of some very bitter medicine that she chugged down Zeka’s throat. Seconds later, her fever started to come down. Her coughing, sneezing and her dizziness seemed to be gone, or at least not as worse as it had terribly been.

Zeka sat up slowly and let out a crooked, “Hi.” The knight said, “Hello, young devil. I’m Exia, a Dark Knight.” The voice sounded like a young woman’s. The vampire said, “I’m Xeno. I own this lodge. Wart here is my maid.”

Zeka smiled. She knew she couldn’t possibly be dead if she were meeting them. Also, she doubted creatures could own lodges in the Dead.

“Okay, I’m Zeka lin Lilac, a Demon of Bones, or rather, Devil of Bones,” she introduced herself.

The other three seemed quite surprised. “You’re the daughter of Lilac?” asked Exia. “Yes?” Zeka replied, confused.

“Well, we saw her fighting about a mile from here, and there was a gunshot,” she explained. “She put up a great fight for them though. Ugh, disgusting humans, their guns will surely lead us to death…”

Zeka stared. Her mother was also dead? Was she an orphan now? And all alone? “You know about it?” she asked.

“You lived right next to our land,”  Xeno grumbled.

Zeka was shocked. No wonder they knew. And she’d never even known they lived here.

“I also have a brother, Lopen xen Lilac, and I think he died, too. He got shot,” Zeka said miserably.

Exia nodded. “We know him, too. And it’s saddening to see that he passed by those puny creatures’ weapons.”

“He didn’t know how to fight yet. He wasn’t old enough to learn. And being a Devil of Bones, his main role would be to hunt anyway. There were also too many of them, and they all were trying to bash my door open after killing him. I could only get out using the portal device. It was left behind, though.” Zeka wailed. “But why did that have to happen?”

Xeno snorted in disgust and said, “They either do it for ‘the cause’ where they kill us dark creatures to eliminate ‘the bad’ or they do it for human money. If they kill someone formidable like Lilac, they could easily buy a lodge like mine. And by now, they might have turned your cottage into rubble. They usually do. So nothing left.”

He looked like he was about to go into true vampire form: the form in which he usually fights or bites someone. Exia bristled, as if she wanted to stab all the humans right now. Wart’s nose wrinkled in abhorrence at the humans.

Zeka stared off into empty space. She figured they held grudges against humans for something, too. And now, she herself had something to hold against them, too.

Before the incident, Zeka didn’t know what humans actually were. Whenever someone would mention humans, she’d think of it as food in context, because Lilac sometimes served it to her and Lopen.

But now those creatures had killed her mother & brother by ganging up on them. Lilac must have killed plenty of them before she went down. Besides, demons are very agile and can dodge gunshot bullets easily, and Lilac was a great fighter, too. So they must have shot her all at once and one might have hit her.

Lopen, however, was probably paralyzed and easily went down without a fight.

“C-can I stay with you guys now?”  Zeka asked. “I’m pretty sure they raided my home and left nothing to come back to. I am just a devil, thirteen years old.”

“All dark creatures are welcome, devil. Besides, we and your mom were on good terms,” Xeno said, smiling. Zeka smiled and replied, “Thanks.”

Abruptly, he turned to Wart and yelled, “WartStitch us a bed for Zeka!” Only Zeka had flinched at his voice. Perhaps Exia and Wart were used to his sudden commands.

“Yes, sir!” she quickly replied, and went off somewhere.

Exia said to Zeka enthusiastically, “Welcome to our family, Zeka, and I hope you like it here.”

“I will,” Zeka replied, smiling broadly. She was going to live here in peace, safety, comfort, and maybe even that forbidden word for dark creatures, love. 

Lilac’s home was the best haven for Zeka, and Zeka knew every nook and cranny of it. She was slightly attached to some things in the house. Lilac and Lopen were the only two people she ever needed. In fact, they were the only two people she knew at all. She loved them a lot and vice versa. Lilac had taught her how to speak fluently so that she could speak to strangers if necessary like right now.

But now they were gone. And so was the cottage. Since Zeka only knew Lilac and Lopen, it meant she now knew no one who was alive after they died. Which was terrifying. Well, almost immediately, she met these three nice people, but she didn’t know them well like she did her mother and brother. 

But at least they would take her in and she would probably get to know them. This was great for her. She hoped this was going to be a good place to live.


Author’s Note:

So I was really sick the past few days and couldn’t really accomplish anything, haha. I was definitely not in the mood to write TCXDR or Harmony posts (which unlike TRD or PE, I don’t have any finished chapters that can be published yet), so I published this, though I edited it somewhat for Draft 3. 🙂 I can’t even tell how many days have passed since I last posted, lol. I am still feeling dizzy somewhat, but hopefully the next post will be a TCXDR post. 🙂 If I will be in the mood to boot up Sims 4 and get more pictures anyway. Lol.

Zeka is still similar to Xim, somewhat! 😀 So yay? At least Zeka is getting adopted? Lol.

Terminology:

The Dead: The Dead is the place where dark creatures go when they die. So Lilac and Lopen went there. 😮

Ician: There are thirty-six months in a Demon year. The first twelve are the human months. Ician is the twenty-second month, so the second October of the Demon year. 🙂

lin/xen: daughter of/son of so-and-so demon. The mother’s name usually goes before the father’s name since the mother usually raises the child. 😉

Devil of Bones: A demon’s young stage is a devil. A Demon of Bones’ role is mainly hunting. Roles like Demon of Claws are mainly fighting and Demon of Chaos are mainly ruling over others. So yep.


<< Previous – (TRD) Prologue

Announcement – 5/12/21

Well, just so it doesn’t look like I dropped off the planet again, I will just post! 🙂 Since I have a ton of interests and a ton of (unfinished) stories that I haven’t found time to work on, I will just publish them all at once! 😀 So TCXDR will take a while. I will try to find time to publish chapter 14 (draft 2 chapter 14, anyway, with draft 1, it would be 17) when I lose interest in Evolution (the story I was video editing, lol.)

I decided to work on editing Evolution I since you know, I wanted to publish it, lol. The first part is up on my channel:

Sorry for the low quality! I had to zoom it in since my brother recorded the entire screen instead of only the play area, lol. Also, my brother missed a few parts so there are a few gaps in time.

This is basically a story we recorded two years ago in a flash game called Everybody Edits (that is now dead sadly, but there is still EE offline)! Starting with Horkball Town invaders! 😉 It used to be a roleplay before but now I think it's a wonderful story! We're on Evo III right now, but why not publish Evo I first? It is also good practice for video editing! 🙂 You can also enjoy funny commentary! 😉

That is the description of the video, lol. You can watch it if you want to (and please comment so I can get feedback) but if you don’t want to, that is perfectly fine. Just note that I will be working on other things other than TCXDR (after all, I do want to get more readers outside of the Sims).

I have been thinking about another unfinished story that I wanted to publish as well, which is called A Girl of Many, which is just realistic fiction, lol. It does feature dark and melancholy themes though but it’s basically about a girl named Felicia Flores who has parents who fight a lot. That is basically it, but I don’t want to get my hands way too full, xD.

So right now I am working on Evolution I Part 2, which is a continuation of the war that ends in Part 1. (Just so you know, the plotline is really random in Evolution I and II since like in real life, I couldn’t get my priorities straight, xD. So a lot of random things happen in these episodes. By Evolution III, though, it stabilizes.)

After I finish Part 2, perhaps I can move onto chapter 14 of TCXDR! 😀 Then I will probably publish a chapter of another story. Just so you know, I will also take some time to edit chapter 14 so it doesn’t end up being garbage, lol. Since I am moving into Draft 2.

(TRD) Prologue

Zeka coughed. Even though the cough made her really tired, she could still think clearly but she couldn’t sleep. Her wings had shriveled up. Zeka’s body was so hot that her red skin was sweltering. She had blurry vision so she could barely see the huge marks on the ceiling. It was a strange flu-like illness which could be fatal. 

She had the illness since yesterday, but it had already progressed so much. Her family couldn’t figure out what it was.

And there wasn’t much to do but to wait for herself to convalesce in bed and her mother, Lilac, to go get the medicine from the forest. But she couldn’t heal until she got immediate treatment.

But at least Zeka’s younger brother, Lopen, was here. He was supposed to monitor her every few minutes.

Zeka went into another fit of coughing and started coughing out blood. It only made her feel worse and more sick inside. She felt like she needed something cold all over her body right now.

“Lopen, get me some ice!” Zeka called out very uncomfortably.

She thought it a surprise that he could hear her when he called back, “We’re out of ice, remember?”

Zeka groaned, not only because she was disappointed. Another spasm of coughing was coming up.

Am I going to die? wondered Zeka.

All of a sudden, there was a glass window crack resounding somewhere from the room Lopen was in. There were unusual voices. Then she heard screaming from an unmistakable voice. A gunshot. A thud. More unusual voices. The banging on the door made Zeka sit up in immense fear.

Oh no, what’s happening?! Lopen?! Zeka panicked. She was worried, anxious, scared, confused, dizzy and millions of other emotions.

Luckily, the bedroom door was locked, so they couldn’t get in. Easily, anyway. But panic gave her a temporary burst of strength.

Zeka struggled stressfully to her feet to see what she could do. Almost immediately, her body felt slushy and her vision became really blurry. 

Agh! she thought, falling flat on her dresser.

She heard bashing. They were going to come inside any millisecond now.

Zeka opened the dresser drawer and saw a portal device. She took it and slid out a code with her clawed fingers.

“Don’t ever use this unless you’re in a huge emergency, Zeka lin Lilac.” had said her mother. But what else is a huge emergency other than getting killed?  She didn’t have a window to jump out of, so this was her only option.

Zeka fell against her dresser again but managed to moan, “Take me to safety!” A blue flash occured right before her eyes. The door was about to break… she felt so hot, so dizzy… she needed to go… this is bad… Zeka took a deep breath and jumped in with all her might.

The portal closed when the door immediately came open.

But now Zeka did not know where she was. The portal device had taken her to a random place. It was muddy black with no sign of life and tons of bare, dead trees and thick undergrowth. 

A sudden paroxysm came into her, she fell coughing out blood. She felt she was dying, dead by maybe not those creatures, but by the illness itself.

I can’t win, she thought miserably, as she settled down into what she thought was endless sleep.


(TRD) I – Next >>

(Harmony) Chapter 1 – A Quiet Morning

Lezo was talking with his best friend, Ben, on the porch of the backyard. It was a peaceful day in the country of Harmony. And Lezo thought that it was perfect for a summer day. He wanted to stay outdoors instead of staying cooped up in the house all the time.

He thought about getting money and being independent, not having to depend on his father. He wondered what kind of job he should get. He was too young to have a full-time job but he could still get a part-time one.

Lezo looked around for his father. He figured that his father would be back from work soon. Of course, being a geneticist in Harmony meant that he couldn’t disclose certain information about work, since there was confidential information. Including when he would come back.

“Are you sure that you will be good at programming algorithms?” Ben asked humorously. “You didn’t exactly get top-notch math grades.”

“You know that I suck at schoolwork, right? I am still smart, I just need to be in my own space. School is suffocating,” Lezo returned slyly.

“I think so, too, but I still do the schoolwork even if I am not great at the subject,” Ben said matter-of-factly. He shrugged. “What job are you getting?”

Lezo wondered about the job. “One which I can do well, of course. And that is doing algorithms!”

He always wanted to do something relating to sorting things unlike genetics like his father, such as making an algorithm for determining which house a person or people should live in. His father wanted him to be a geneticist like himself (geneticist was a renowned profession), but Lezo just didn’t like it for some reason.

“I think it’s too complicated. Is it even interesting?” Lezo had asked his father one day, and his father was shocked. So he decided to tell Lezo about how they create new men for the population and how interesting it was. He didn’t say anything confidential, though, such as who or what incubated those men.

The computer algorithms interested Lezo more, however. He had spent a lot of time researching the technology behind it. He had made a basic computer program using the native language of computers. His younger brother, Jack, was interested in it and liked it, but their father wasn’t. He did not want to encourage Lezo further on this path since he wanted his sons to be geneticists like him, like a legacy profession.

Ben told him solemnly, “Well, you need to tell your dad, then. He isn’t just going to let you do it behind his back, right?”

Lezo shrugged. “He’d better get used to the fact that I won’t bend to his will. Maybe he can have Jack become a geneticist. Otherwise…” He smirked deviously. Lezo wouldn’t be easy to control and he could sometimes get way out of hand.

“Jack isn’t interested, though, is he?” Ben replied quietly.

“Nope, definitely not. He hasn’t said what he wanted to be or do other than genetics, though,“ Lezo said.

“I think he is more interested in his friends,” Ben laughed.

“True.” Lezo knew that anything that wasn’t related to science was not really considered a true profession in Harmony.

Then Lezo looked at the time. Six fifteen. And his father still wasn’t home. Lezo didn’t care, though. He was independent all his life. He especially didn’t need someone controlling him.

“I think I will find one by myself,” he said. “I don’t care a f— what he says.”

“Okay, well, suit yourself, I guess. You would need to hide it from him, though,” Ben shrugged.

Lezo just nodded and left saying, “You know what, I will find one right now.”

Computer programming was more interesting than genetics to Lezo. I still don’t find any fun in it, he thought.

He only wanted to be independent from his father so he wouldn’t have to see his face. He also wanted to be productive, and not to stay at home doing nothing but homework and computer programming (without pay).

Ben just watched him leave, a little stunned, but he was used to Lezo’s spontaneity. He then wondered if Lezo even liked his father. Ben wouldn’t be that surprised if he didn’t, but a little surprised if he did. To him, Lezo seemed like the type who would leave the house at nineteen and find his own place way before his father had to kick him out. Ben wasn’t too sure about Jack, but he figured Jack would most likely live with his friends after they all moved out. Lezo and him were only ten months apart, anyway.

Ben just shrugged and decided to go back home. His father was waiting for him anyway.

(PE) Prologue

As I breathed heavily, my sword clutched in my hands, I found myself in a state of panic. We were standing on this very spot, where evil forces would come. “Fiona,” I asked, patiently waiting to see them, “Where is that evil?” Fiona is my best friend. We had a challenge. “Naheh, aren’t these the correct coordinates?”

I looked at the map carefully. I knew how to read maps, I’m fifteen! Fiona looked over my shoulder, inspecting the map. I was thinking, The evil is going to come. The evil is going to come. The evil is going to—

I heard a rumbling sound. Fiona must have, too. My long golden hair that went all the way down to the back of my knees got blown by the thin, crispy air. All of a sudden, Fiona’s skin turned pale and she was a dark-skinned girl. Then we knew something weird was happening. My skin was discolored too!

I heard fierce yelling from the attackers. It sounded evil. The rumbling sound was a cannon. Another battle was about to begin. And I was the leader of the defenders.

There was no peace, just pure evil. Peace and evil. My name is Naheh Crosshart, and my best friend is Fiona Aronson. Our story is creepy, but peaceful at the beginning.

Multi-stories – 4/30/21

I am planning on releasing the three stories’ Prologues/Chapter 1 right now! 😀 I will still deep-edit TCXDR and fix links, grammar, plot or anything like that but I will just post these just so you can like, you know, read them! 😀 I will make the index pages first, however.

I will also rename the TCXDR chapters to begin with “TCXDR:” so we don’t end up with people getting confused lol.

Announcement – 4/26/21

Hey guys! Sorry if I just happened to vanish from existence for like, four months (almost five :O)! I decided to pursue other interests (such as programming, video editing and all). I was still active on itch.io, though! Speaking of which I published my game sometime ago!

I also decided to do game jams on itch.io! 😀 So that I can try to make friends and all on itch.io, too.

So why did I leave WordPress for a while? Well, if I wanted to tell you the full story, I would have to go into great detail! Lol. Which I will because I want to pour out all the emotions, et cetera, et cetera. 😉

If you know me really well, then you must know my interests shift a lot. I get obsessed with something, go on about for a long time, then find something new, lose interest in that old thing, and get obsessed about the new thing! I don’t know if it is a good workflow, but it is my workflow, haha.

I think this might be because I have an inspiration bank for every project and creation I have. I am usually full of inspiration for something, which I why I start projects (and never finish it, I have dozens of projects, mainly writing ones, sitting on the back burner, xD). As I work on a project, though, the inspiration bank starts getting depleted. Usually I also think way ahead of the plotline, too, which depletes inspiration even more. Then I reach a point where the bank is out of inspiration and my interest in the project ceases to exist.

When I spend time off that project, though, I slowly start getting inspiration back. Even if I am not thinking about that inspiration twenty-four-seven, it is still there, so when I come back to old projects, I am so excited and have quadrillions of ideas for it again! LOL. So I think multi-tasking might be the best workflow for me, so my inspiration for each project never runs out completely. Although this does lead to ideas mixing and making a little of a mess, but I can still separate it fine. I even had inspiration for writing this post, lol. I guess it could also be called motivation, but when we are talking about creative projects, I think inspiration makes more sense. 🙂

So after some time, I am taking interest in TCXDR again! 😀 Although this time, I won’t have strict deadlines so I won’t kill myself, haha. But I am also taking interest in other stories. I have also decided to do something else that is in line with the multi-tasking workflow, multi-stories! Or more accurately, writing a chapter of each story and publishing them at even intervals of time. There will be more three stories.

I have had ideas for these stories for a long time, and I have already started writing two of them before TCXDR. Of course, you will see similar elements in these stories. For example, sheer tragedy and depression to the point of suicide (seriously, it gets to that point in all of my stories)! xD There is a runaway element in all these stories, too. It might not be obvious for two of them, but it is still there. For one of them, it might more accurately be rebellion. And most of all, family! Family will always be a theme in my stories, whether be a main one, or just a obscure one. I don’t know why I like the concept so much, but I do. I even push it farther to the point where the main character finds a missing family member (whether it be parent, grandparent, sibling or aunt/uncle) later on in the story. Which will happen in all four of these stories. My protagonists are also usually preteens, too (10-13). Then they become teenagers later on in the story (13-18), and finally become adults (18-)! I like preteens. They are easier to write than teens or adults, xD. When they become teens, though, they are easier to write, too, since they have a ton of backstory. Likewise with adults.

Two of these stories are dystopian stories (and realistic fiction but that is okay)! 😀 Who doesn’t love a good dystopian story? The last story is supernatural like TCXDR! 🙂 I am trying to use original ideas in my stories by mashing multiple themes together and trying to make a perfect blend out of those, though!

The first story’s title is Peace and Evil! It features war. Well, not just war, really. It is about a young girl in an utopian country full of peace, love, and friendship! Like every dystopia, though, there is a fatal flaw with this utopia. The people of the country are too weak to fight off attackers, and therefore they are under attack. The girl tries to fight against the attackers by motivating and cheering up everyone, while also protecting them and becoming a war leader (theoretically, she is still young)! She figures out dark secrets that some people are hiding. So this story is mainly about refuge, rebellion and counterattack against the attackers, and spending time with friends and family! (This story will have a lot of death, though! :O)

The second story’s title is Harmony! It is about major discovery and rebellion! It is about a homonormative country that has only one gender: male. The story takes place way in the future, just so you know. The people of Harmony have no idea women exist. So how are they reproducing? Even far into the future, they haven’t found a way to reproduce asexually, lol! Well, that is where the fatal flaw of Harmony lies! The story focuses on a boy (I am experimenting with a male protagonist, now, yay!) whose father is a geneticist (Hmm…), and has a brother who is only ten months younger. He finds a part-time job, meets a quirky person, and finds about about women. It’s also about friends and family, and finding identity among others. (This features LGBTQ+, of course! 🙂 It might have some “R”-rated elements, though, such as teen pregnancy but are not caused by sex.)

Finally the third story is called The Runaway Demon! The beginning is very similar to TCXDR. Supernatural girl’s mom dies by some strange forces and now she is a runaway. The plotlines are different, though, and they have different powers. It has vampires, demons (not like biblical demons, of course, but earth-dwelling ones) and more! 😀 The main character is a young female fire devil (a kid version of demon) who is really sick and is just trying to get better. Her mother is outside getting medicine until she gets killed. Unlike Xim, though, she tries to find shelter in other supernaturals’ houses but like Xim, tries to figure out more about her mother and her past. (It also has war and death, sort of.)

So yeah! 😀 These will be my stories! Peace and Evil is edited slightly so it doesn’t seem like it was too out-of-place or something. So was The Runaway Demon, since these two stories I have written a few years ago. 😀 Harmony is a new story, though.

I will try to post a chapter of one story each week, so getting a chapter of each story will probably be once a month. So no strict deadlines, lol. Hopefully the stories are still interesting! 🙂 I have a very busy life with parents and younger siblings, and I also am a student, lol, so studying is a main part of my life. I like to code using Godot, too, so I am working on my game(s) as well. I also recently heard about Davinci Resolve, a video editing software where I can edit my videos! 😀 Wondershare Filmora9 puts watermarks and I don’t really have much money to spare so I am using free software! I was editing some videos where my brother and I were roleplaying in a game called Everybody Edits, and we were doing a RPG and all. The roleplay is called Evolution! 🙂 Since I want to bond with my brother, we play Evolution together while recording it. Then I edit the videos to their finest potential! (I don’t know if anyone would be interested, but if you want to see them, then just tell me!) I have online relationships, too! I joke with my family. I am also a human. I sleep, eat, play and make waste. So I also have to eat meals, and I play games in my spare time. And I go to the bathroom and shower, wash my hands, etc.

So I think if I were doing family relationships, academics, Godotting, Davincing, writing TCXDR, PE (Peace and Evil), Harmony and TRD (The Runaway Demon), playing Evolution with my brother, sleeping, eating, having fun, joking around, handling online relationships, and going to the bathroom, all at once, perhaps I can manage, right? 😀 I can try publishing multiple chapters, maybe?

My brain: *gives up*

My body: *pain all over*

My friends: Why is she not talking?

LOL. 😂 So this also contributing to me not being on WordPress for a while. So yeah. xD I am not cut out for working outside of the house. The best job for me would be computer programming and writing, maybe. I won’t have to leave my bed! 😂

Just so you know, the three stories won’t be sims stories (getting pictures for TCXDR was already taking forever, lol), they will just be normal with no pictures, but hopefully that is still fine! Use your imagination! 😉 TCXDR will still be one, don’t worry! It is just so that I don’t lose interest in the stories again and only update once a month for all the stories or worse, quit WordPress again, lol.

As for TCXDR, I will go through deep editing so that it doesn’t seem out-of-place, either, before I publish any new chapters! 🙂 Some parts will need to be deleted (such as Chapter 3, it adds no substance to the story), a few chapters will need to be merged (I split the Prologue and Chapter 1 due to word count, but now the word count is a lot more anyway in the much later chapters, so it doesn’t matter now, xD), and maybe I will also decrease the word count a little (Part 1, I think has the word count of a short novel already, xD). So I will cut out some parts which don’t seem to fit (such as reflections on topics) and add them into chapters where they do fit! 😀 I will also have fewer pictures for each chapter, so you know, my WordPress storage isn’t full, and there aren’t pictures that don’t make sense, or are essentially duplicates or something.

Then I will do the quad-post! 😀 Hopefully this idea is a good idea!

I will also comment on any chapters of yours that I happened to miss during my vacation to itch.io! So don’t worry! 🙂 (I will do it in order, though!)

If you want to know anything else about me, I am a perfectionist! To not be perfect is to accept defeat for me, lol! So I can also be stubborn with quality. Why else would it take me three months to finish a platformer of all genres? xD Here are a few examples:

  • Programming: I need there to be twenty levels upon publishing and all the features included! With no bugs either! Bugs are horrible and will ruin the perfection!
  • Video editing: So now I need to delete this one exact frame… the color needs to be correct… and the alignment of the music needs to be PERFECT!
  • Writing: Is the grammar correct? *spends about two minutes trying to fix grammar syntax* Ugh, there are too many unnecessary sentences! Delete! It needs to be perfect!
  • Communication online: *stares at computer for minutes on end wondering for the perfect words to say* This message should be perfect!
  • Communication irl: *mostly nods with what other person says because I can’t think of the perfect thing to say without more time*

Lol, there might be some exaggerations, but that is basically it. If you have anything to say, please do! 🙂 I will start editing TCXDR now!

Hiatus – 1/10/21

I am on a hiatus for now because right now I don’t feel like writing. Instead I am working on a game and I have been thinking about it for a long while now.

I’m using a game engine called Godot. 🙂 It’s very simple and doesn’t require much programming experience, lol. I’m deciding to make a simple platformer called “A Platformer Trial of Colors”. Basically the character changes color and has to solve puzzles and such. It also requires some platformer reflexes as some of them may start get a bit hard between the first and the middle few levels. Luckily I’m good at platformers, haha.

So I want to try and publish this game on various game websites before moving back to TCXDR. If that is okay with y’all. 😉 I will try to reply to posts and all when I have time. Also life gets in the way, APTC isn’t the only thing occupying so much time, haha.
