My dear friends, it pains me to say I am going on an indefinite hiatus. As some of you may know, I have an unexplained chronic illness and for the past months my symptoms have been getting worse. I no longer have the stamina for long simming hours and my active time on the computer must be rationed to devote as much time to schoolwork as possible. This community has been a wonderful part of my life for over a year now and I’ve made so many lovely friends. Thank you so much for the fantastic ride! I’ve been dragging my feet over posting an entry like this, because it seems so final, but it really isn’t. If you feel a benevolent presence hovering in your journal or see a msantimacassar commenting, it’ll be me! And who knows – my plot bunnies are still very active – I could be back in a few months!

So let’s not say goodbye but au revoir!

(Previously on Debts & Debutantes)

As soon as Rachel Thornwick settled her daughters in Ashcombe, she set about renewing her acquaintance within its society. Old friendships were cooly evaluated for worth. Those who could assist Emma and Eleanor’s paths to successful matrimony were encouraged, those who could not were dismissed without a second thought. Not everyone wished to associate with the disgraced Thornwick family, but if Rachel had her way their name would be restored as well as their fortune.

Hello, dear Livejournal! It's been an age and a day, hasn't it? Well, it seems I have rediscovered my love for the Sims after a particularly grueling summer. You may have seen me posting on Tumblr, but LJ is always my first love so I will be crossposting my new story here. The Tumblr format (while convenient for writing and posting a few pictures at a time) is imo really annoying to read for long stories like this one. Plus, I really love comments! Anyway, concrit is always welcome and I hope you enjoy! <3

"The debt. Once upon a time, Lawrence Beechworth cheated his partner, Edward Thornwick, out of his fair share in their business. Edward died in debt, a gambling addict and a drunkard. Now his widow, Rachel, and two daughters, Eleanor and Emma, are back in town ready to receive what is rightfully theirs. Lawrence is a dying man, riddled with regret. His son, Henry, has sworn to restore his family’s honor and repay the debt to the Thornwicks. What better way to end a family feud than a marriage between two of its young members? Strangely enough, it might not end up as neatly as scheming parents could wish.

The debutantes. Emma and Eleanor Thornwick are being launched into society by their determined and formidable mother. With her husband’s debts still heavy on her shoulders, Rachel Thornwick is determined to make the Beechworth family pay. Blood money, marriage, it’s all the same thing. She has set her sights on landing Henry Beechworth for her eldest daughter, Emma. Secretly, Emma longs for a world of study and exploration outside the confines of a society marriage. Reserved and thoughtful, Eleanor has long been overlooked in favor of her more outgoing sister, but now may be the time to step out of the shadows. Is it possible that she has a chance to seize something for herself? Will she have the courage to take a leap that will change her life forever?"

Happy Belated St. Patrick's Day!!!


Happy Birthday to my dear birthday twin, untidyfan! I hope you had an awesome day, dear!
(We have the best birthday ever, don't you think? ;)

I've been moving this past two weeks and finally got to get back on my simming computer. I apologize for the lateness of these posts but even though I missed it I still wanted to do something fun and green-themed!
just a few more pictures under the cutCollapse )

"I’ve been super stressed lately and craving some stress-free simming - so I’ve decided to start a legacy. I’ve done several legacies in the past but usually gave up or got distracted part way in. I make no promises this time around, but I’m looking forward to just playing the game, without plotbunnies, cheats, or posing. I will still be working on my other projects but this will be a way for me to just chill out and do some old-fashioned simming. Hope you will enjoy following along!"

That was the intro I've already posted on Tumblr. I have been posting the updates in bits and pieces there but the format just isn't working for me. I guess I'm too used to good old LJ, and I'd like to keep everything in one place without cluttering up my Tumblr! So here you have a first proper update, all in one place. :)
