Random Branches - 5 Updates! 1-3-21

Postby Seera » July 26th, 2014, 10:39 am

This is one of my earliest attempts at the DITFT challenge. I started it in September 2011 based on when I started publishing chapters for it. The chapters were decently written and had some actual plot to it as opposed to being commentary. Then as it is with me, something else shiny caught my eye. Possibly a new EP, possibly Sims 2, or something entirely different. Two months later the computer's hard drive dies. And I had no external back ups of any Sims 3 save. Also by then the EPIC challenge had been posted and I had wanted to try that so when the new computer comes, shiny new challenge catches my eye and the Rands are forgotten.

Until recently. Was going through my various blogs for abandoned challenges realized that of them, the Rands were the only one that really tugged at me screaming: continue me! So I remade my founder, grabbed her spouse out of Twinbrook and used CAS's make a baby feature, recreated the kids they had already had. Then came the hard part. Figuring out why they moved. Because I couldn't leave them in Twinbrook. Too much time had gone by. Then it hit me: my plot! While I had initially strived to not do any sort of staging, my idea required staging. So I downloaded pose player, found some poses and shot some scenes. And of course the plot that came decided to morph into something bigger. So the days of not staging are probably over. And I'm ok with that.

And as of Chapter 5.4, the story has moved from plot to pure commentary. Not to say that plot won't return in the future as I will have plot going on in my head, but for the sake of me actually getting updates out for this and other stories, I had to pull the plot out of this story and my other plot story.

And now, on with the links to the story!

I read through Mira and Sinbad's chapters. This is amazing! :O

:thdown: Photobucket left the Anton one without pictures! I was so hooked. I hope the pictures get sorted out soon, I'd love to know what happens next.
