Outtake from chapter 52

Once again, I'm going to apologize for the lateness of this chapter. I'm trying to work on chapter 53, but right now I am so very tired.  

I have many excuses, but my biggest one is that I'm dating again.  It's actually been pretty fun and I'm kind of excited about it. I have a whole dating diary thing on my personal LJ if you're curious (the dating entries are f-locked, though simmers here are more than welcome, 'cause jeebus knows, advice is good  :D ).

Ahem. Anyway, this week I'd also like to start working on Auberon again. Unfortunately, I cannot find my Late Night disk and I'm too tired to look for it.  But I still want to finish this too! :)

Thank you, everyone for all the comments and notes on the chapter. It still means a lot that you're still reading. *hugs*

All I can say about anything you love or think you love is to wait until you see it. Clear your game board. Throw all expectations away. And look, and see, and be very sure you see what you have been waiting for.

As far as your writing is concerned, when you create something people love, they will come back.

This is probably the best advice I've gotten in a while. In a way, I am clearing the game board, totally starting again. I don't want to rely on old friends and colleagues, and I want to just meet new people.

Thank you for being so supportive! *hugs*

I am glad that the reason for Simtopi lateness is a happy one :)

Hmmm, yes dating, can be lots of fun, but I find meeting new people a bit stressful too... Thinking back to my experience, I guess, all I can say is that when there is no "spark" forcing things just doesn't work... About three years ago though, I met somebody (on the internets) and we've been "sparking" since then :)

Thank you. Well you know my life really has been all over the place. I don't want to forget about Simtopi, but real life just can't be ignored for too long, lol!

I don't want to force things, I am kind of just in an experimental phase with the whole dating thing. It is so awesome that you found someone online, it gives me some hope! :D

Good to see you back! (Sorry for not commenting on the last chapter--I've been pretty sick the past few days, so I didn't have anything intelligent to say. I did enjoy it, though, for all I should probably re-read Simtopi from the beginning one of these days because my memory sucks. :P)

Real life definitely trumps Sims, and it's good to hear that you've been mostly the good kind of busy? Best of luck with the dating! I'm one of those people who never got the hang of dating (I'm too direct to put up with the whole "game" aspect that so many people seem to like for some reason). Dating can be hard! Fun if you find well-suited people, though. :)

Oh you don't have to apologize at all for anything. I'm just honoured you're still reading, thank you. And yeah, there has been a lot of Simtopi there. I've had to reread a few times to make sure I'm still on the right path.

Ah real life... it sucks and it doesn't. I'm not one to play games too (so I'm finding), and I don't want anything big right now for sure, but the experiment has been interesting so far. Thank you!

I know this is post is probably stale already, but I hope you're doing fine already. :)

It takes both rain and sunshine to make life's rainbow! Brave through the downs and you'll get to enjoy the ups. ^^
