I'm Still Alive!  
Hey guys!

First of all, sorry for disappearing. We had a big, huge technological apocalypse here at Casa WTF and two laptops perished in the process. Turns out viruses can be very nasty little things.

But anyway, now we have a new desktop that runs the sims beautifully, and I'm way too excited about the shiny graphics for it to be normal and/or healthy. The bad news? Two of my EPs (Uni and Pets) weren't mine, so I couldn't re-install them, and so my Wischnia backup is of no use right now :( I do have Clem, Suzie, Jackie and Ani safely tucked in a pen drive, but I'm afraid they wouldn't be nearly as fun in a new game.

And now I'm not sure what to do. Get Ani into my game and give her a new start? Start anew with the Wischnias 2.0? Get Clem into my game and start from the beginning? Find out a miraculous way for a backup of a game with Uni, OfB, Pets and Seasons to work in a game with OfB, Seasons, FT and AL?

Anyway, I'm back, and I'm giddy about the amount of legacies I get to read! :D

XD You're back! So glad to hear it was just a technical glitch. I have a horrible tendency to think the worst.

As for the Wischnias... I don't know what to tell you. I have no experience with things like that. Personally, though, whatever you decide to do with the Wischnias, I can't wait to see it.

I'd offer to let you borrow my copies of Uni and Pets but I don't know if that would work since they're US versions. Google is failing me atm.

An AU version of Clem's life could be very interesting though.

Aw, thank you! I think I'll just make do with what I have for now, until my friend comes back and she can lend them to me :)

I'm leaning more towards just starting a new thing, I don't know that I could see Clem with someone that's not Suzie, or having kids that aren't Jackie, Will and Kate...

Yeah, when you think of it that way an AU thing would be too sad.... and I'm a firm believer that Suzie is the only one who could ever make Clem happy... err at least less pissed.

Something new would be good too. It's weird, I love reading legacies, I love playing the sims, I love writing and storytelling, but I never stick with a family long enough to do a legacy >_< I have ADD or something. How do you legacy writers do it? lol

Yay, I'm so glad you're back! I was just wondering about you the other day when I finally got around to putting Clem in my game. (I took a huge break from Simming but finally upgraded my RAM so I can play happily.)

You could always torrent Uni and Pets. I don't know where you could find them since I've never done it, but I'm sure Google could help you. :)

Regardless, I will read whatever you post. :D

Yay for upgraded RAM! I was playing on a crappy laptop and I'm so amazed at the difference with my new computer! The fabrics have textures! The ponds have fish swimming in them! :D

I'd definitely torrent them, but the girlfriend and I have made a pact about careless downloads since the huge virus blowout :P

Aw, thanks! I'll try to make it interesting, whatever I end up doing!

I wouldn't recommend torrenting the EPs. My friend gets loads of viruses that way and he never learns. lol.

I'd recommend just stopping by Gamestop and picking up some used versions of the games, or borrowing them from a friend, so there is no risk of anything awful happening.

Oh, viruses. I definitely have the last virus apocalypse way too fresh in my mind to risk anything like that happening again :P

I'll just wait for my friend to come back so I can borrow them again :)

YAY! I thought you died (not really, but I missed your legacy a lot).

YAY YOUR BACK! I say you start another new, fresh legacy with Ani! :) I will definitely read it!
