"I would outrun the scythe, glaring with failure.
It is a mere destiny I thought,
A threshold I had crossed before."

About, because I anticipate a lot of questions and concerns.

(A lot of this is still under construction, I'm so out of practice :spin:)

Happy 2021! From the crew at Outrun the Scythe (okay just me and two chihuahuas) to you.

Hey there gamers, we at Outrun upping chapters to twice weekly now. Tuesday/Friday. This might change once we get another crew member (a.k.a. another chihuahua? Not clickbait???)

Image


Chapter 0.3. Heathcliff talks a little about the issues plaguing his adolescence. Mostly stuff going on at the town gym.

Happy Friday! Hoping it's better than, uh, a lot of the week (AND THAT'S ALL I'M SAYING)

Chapter 0.4. Heathcliff, a brand spankin' new young adult now, gets a visit he's been told to fear. Another one-off character leaves us forever too.

One of my favorite musicians took an indefinite break today, time to post gay daemons.

Happy Friday! A less daemonic chapter than the last, but if you're a sucker for road trips and Bayless spawn then you're in luck.
Image
Chapter 0.6. Sheila and Heathcliff go on forward with their west coast vacation anyways, but not without some discomfort, bar shenanigans being the least of them!

Happy "get back to work" day in the US and Tuesday to the rest of ya.

Chapter 0.7. We catch up with Sheila a year later. Knowing that she's old, this teaser image of plainclothes Cara--servant of Death--doesn't really comfort me!

Happy Friday, it's been a crummy week where I feel like sloppy sculpting Heathcliff. Or I wish! (but seriously blame my Boolprop absence on super depression or whatever this feeling is, I'll spare you the details :party2:)



Image


Chapter 0.8. A year later we get back to Heathcliff's crushed dreams and new city folk friends, both the boring and the unusual.

Last Outrun chapter for a bit! I've run out of chapters and will retreat until more are made.
Image
Chapter 0.9. Sheila and Heathcliff start their new lives without each other but in tandem. Barry meddles with death itself again, which may be a worrying trend now.

Well you didn't see the last of me. :bullwhip: SimNaNo has started! Well yesterday (I felt like the even-numbered days were calling to me...) but if all goes well I can squeeze twelve chapters into a month and not get burnt out like last time.
Image
Chapter 1.1. Heathcliff enjoys his wild and crazy nights in Bridgeport that, unlike him, might not have to last forever.

Chapter 1.6. Sheila pieces together the trash heap of Violet's past life and may even be somewhat correct. Tensions rise between the ladies of House Drudge while the men try and keep out of it.

Double-whammy because I forgot to update my thread yesterday...or Wednesday. :spin:

Chapter 1.7. Sheila throws a Halloween party that almost goes perfectly, and Malcolm may as well have slipped out for an hour to tickle his daughter (CUTE)
Image
Chapter 1.8. We say goodbye to Pappy/Spot (you know I’m real sorry for that name system but EA was testing me) and hello to a whole new world of daemons and homosexuality.

After July 16th I made a bold move for a simmer and touched grass. It's hard to keep on top of forum posts afterwards but I made good on my SimNaNo promises for writing. I have a big to-do list. So sit back and savor this while I'm out. You have plenty of time, I promise. ;)

I am employing spoilers here since this is a lot.

Chapter 1.9.
Spoiler:
Image
Heathcliff completes an important job despite setbacks. At least he still has that boyfriend to rely on…right??
Chapter 1.10.
Spoiler:
Image
Heathcliff lives out his days as a party animal while waiting for Romeo to get his act together. Pilona, meanwhile, knows a little more than his nephew and pulls this face a lot (I thought it was really funny)
Chapter 1.11.
Spoiler:
Image
In a bizarre new world, Romeo wins the award for having the worst in-law story ever.
Chapter 1.12
Spoiler:
Image
Heathcliff and Romeo learn a few lessons about how jobs and in-laws maybe can't get in the way of pure, homosexual love.
