This is all new to me! Don't know how well I will be able to keep it up, but I am going to give it a try!
A special thanks to JK for making me this awesome banner! You're the best!

Take a Pic

This is a new comp I entered. We had to portray an emotion in our picture, I chose Despair.

Despair or hopelessness is the loss of hope.

Dark shadowz assignment 3-Ability immerges

Having really nowhere to go, Courtney joined up with some traveling gypsies. They sensed what she was but didn’t mind as long as she fed elsewhere, they had secrets of their own. It was company to say the least. Except for this one guy who seemed to take a liking to Courtney (we will call him Sebastian). It wouldn’t have been so bad but this guy was not desirable. He was big in the belly and very dirty. His filthy hygiene covered up the smell of his sweet blood, Courtney couldn’t stand being in his presence which was very difficult. Sebastian seemed to find Courtney wherever she was. He even followed her out on occasion when she had to feed, he was fascinated with her.
On one particular evening something strange happened. Courtney was relaxing by the fire in the camp. She was staring into the flames watching them dance, she was mesmerized. Out of the corner of her eye, she caught Sebastian heading in her direction. As he approached, Courtney imagined the flames jumping out of the fire and onto Sebastian. Screams woke Courtney from her trance; she looked up and saw Sebastian in flames. Courtney slowly got up and walked away from the fire, oops!
She packed her things that evening and left the camp.
(Courtney’s power is to be able to manipulate fire.)

Faerie Folk assignment 6

This was a tough one for me!We had to do a chakra and mine was Muladhara(root)

Muladhara chakra is first. Its name means root support. It symbolizes the beginning of life and the element of earth.

Muladhara, means "root," and the paths of energy in this chakra extend downward like a root through the legs and feet to contact the solid Earth below.

Its color is a deep red, and its symbol is a lotus of four petals within which is a downward-pointing triangle, symbolizing the root energy.

This chakra manifests purity, simplicity, balance and other good qualities. When this chakra is awakened and nourished the associated earth element is a magnetic force within an individual.

It is also the seat of kundalini awakening, which begins its ascent here. Alternatively it is called the seat of the 'red bindu', or subtle drop, which is caused to rise up to the 'white bindu' in the head in order to unite the female and masculine energies of Shakti and Shiva.

Timeless Beauties 80's wedding dress

Well, I like the picture, but am a little disappointed. It isn't really an 80's look to me. I searched for days for a dress, didn't even have to be a wedding one. My heart was set on puffy sleeves, but had no luck. I did what I could. I am hoping it is good enough.

Prayers for my little bro

So I got a scare this morning. A text came in right before I went to work from my brother. He has been spitting up blood. He went to an ENT and they found a lesion by his vocal chords in his throat. There is a possibility that it may be cancerous. He is a smoker (this scares me) He goes for surgery within the next 14 days and we will know for sure. He has three young daughters. He got remarried in October and has 2 stepchildren as well.He has been going through a tough time financially as well. He doesn't live near me and I feel kinda helpless.
Please keep him in your prayers.
Thank You

Mares! You read it wrong!

Quote from Mares "Note the little line ‘because what she [JKAmaryllis] told us is different from what you’re saying."
I was referring to Yaz. She told a totally different story as to why she(Yaz) was "kicked" out of Sim Sanctuary from what Em told. She didn't paint a pretty picture of you Em, not to me anyway.
As far as me being a criminal mastermind, gee I don't know what to say.
First off, I didn't even know that JK talked to Em or that she gave permission to Em about blogging until after the fact. Second, I am not a big fan of blogging about other people's crap, would never have agreeed to that being blogged. The whole reason Em and I had a disagreement in the first place and she kicked me out. Thirdly, I have better things to do with my time! Seriously, I am a mother of 2 teenagers.
Paint what ever picture you want of me, believe me I am not going to bed crying at night. You don't even know me. You take bits and pieces and make up stories to suite you and Em is a Mare's mini me so it kinda fits. If she wasn't trying to be like Mares she would have never posted that in haste, instead thought about it and got the facts straight and who knows what they are! I think part of Em believed it and that is why she posted it, until things didn't go in her favor, then she sang different tune.
I have 2 friends that battled cancer and my mother. You are not in the mood to eat and you don't get drunk a few days later...in fact alcohol is a no no. There are many things that were said that were contradictions, so questions were raised. I asked questions, I talked about it and that is the part I played.
I back JK 100%, there were reasons for her trying to find things out and that is all she was doing. So now she is the bad guy, lol. she is one of the sweetest people I know. In fact, I often thought of her being too sweet and not having enough backbone. She did not lie about anything! She was sharing her thoughts! Trying to find answers. I see it as Em thinking she had a hot story and couldn't wait to get it on the press. Yes Em did apologize but she heavily leaned on JK as being the true blame of it all. Not true.
This should of never have happened! But emotions get the best of us sometimes unfortunately.

Dark Sadowz-assignment 2

First blood

I started walking, not really sure where I was going. All I knew was that I had to get out of the seaside town. I stayed along the shore but soon realized the hard way that there wasn’t much cover from the burning rays of the sun in the day. It was a close call. After that I made my way inland towards the forest. At first I stayed on the roads, walking aimlessly. My blood burned. Days go by, I find shelter in the forest during the day, I do not sleep. One evening a carriage comes down the road and stops. They ask if I need assistance, I cannot look at them and I keep walking. There is a sweet smell in the air. A gentleman emerges from the wagon and asks me my name as he approaches me. What is that thumping sound? My blood burns. I am afraid and run into the forest, deeper and deeper. There is no longer a road that I follow. There is no sense of time. The pains in my stomach are unbearable. What have I done? A creature stirs in the forest and catches my interest. Maybe a way out of the inevitable I think to myself. I hunt the rabbit and to my surprise capture it quite easily. The smell of its blood is retched and I throw it back to the forest. I am in pain. My blood burns.
Days, weeks, I don’t even know. A small path emerges in the forest, I follow it. I hear laughing and music in the distance. I catch a whiff of a sweet smelling aroma. I head towards it. In the clearing I come across a Tavern, inside full of people. At first I thought my heart was beating, but realized it was not my own. Perhaps some nice raw meat will kill my pain. I enter the Tavern and look around. My eyes meet the eyes of a gentleman enjoying a drink and meal. At first we were frozen a moment in time in each other’s gaze. Then without thought, I lunged at him with a force and strength I didn’t recognize. Screaming there was screaming everywhere. The noise pierced my ears. Everything happened so quickly. Then the screaming stopped and the Tavern was quiet. All were dead. My pain was gone. My blood no longer burned. The Courtney I once knew was gone.

Not a happy camper!

So I made this new sim, different from my norm! And she failed to upload! Her only cc is her hair and makeup and her file isn't that big. In fact I uploaded another sim right after her, bigger file and full of cc, she uploaded! I will try again tomorrow. I am not sure how to upload it to another site like mediafire...may have to work on that!

I uploaded her to mediafire after much attempts
her hair is Newsea(Elisabeth)

Dark Shadows' entry!

I didn’t want to go, but my parents insisted there would be great opportunities in the new world and our family would regain the status they once had. I was different from other girls. I kept to myself. I was 21 and still not married or engaged to be married, that was odd for 1772. Not that I didn’t have any pursuers, they just bored me to death, literally. I was odd. My mother worried about me. We lived near the sea, the one good thing about living here that I enjoyed. At twilight I often took walks down by the boats and breathed in the salty water. My mother hated these walks; “No respectable young lady should be walking alone at that hour!” she would complain. Respectable? I would think to myself, what exactly does that mean?
The air was damp and a fog was drifting in from the sea this particular evening. A newly arrived ship from Europe was docked close by. I saw movement; a man emerged from the shadows of the ship. I did not fear him and kept walking in that direction. I recognized what he was, his glowing eyes, I have heard the tall tales of these creatures. I was drawn to him as he descended down the dock. He was standing there before me, staring into my eyes. He started to walk away and I followed. He lead me to this old building, most likely an abandoned home. He lit some candles and started the fire.
I was caught up in the moment, was this a dream? I wanted him. We did not speak; the only sound was the beating of my heart as it pressed against my chest. I did not feel any pain only ecstasy. I wanted what he could give me. The sun rose and I awoke alone. That night I walked away from that seaside town and never returned. I payed a high price for that night of passion…I am eternally dammed!

Too far?

I am just going to back away! I do not like confrontations, especially when you can't talk to the person face to face! At first I thought the whole thing was silly, then it got out of hand and I was aggravated! I would just like to drop off the face of the world at this moment. I have never dropped a comp and I have never questioned a judge until now! And I feel like crap! Taking a break and hoping it just dies away! Knowing the forums it won't, I have created a monster! I apologize for any hurt feelings, it was never my intention! I am truly saddened!

Before I say I do entry

It has been days since I last saw Samuel and experienced that awkward moment. I can’t stop thinking about his piercing grey eyes looking at me. I can’t sleep. I get the article done about his band. It is a good and positive article, though it is out of my comfort zone. A couple of more days go by, no word. I guess I was wrong about the look he gave me; maybe it was just one of his methods on wooing women. Since it didn’t work on me, I guess he gave up. I must get him out of my mind.

I get home the night after walking Valerie home. I am too restless. What is it about her that I find so appealing? She is like my polar opposite; we have nothing in common, still? I don’t leave my house for days, I sit by my guitar strumming notes and writing words. It helps to ease my tension, to sort out my feelings. I am having a hard time getting the song right. A couple of days later someone drops off the article that Valerie wrote. Her words are so sweet to me. I am full of emotions…those eyes…I can’t sleep.

I am at the office. Flowers are delivered for some lucky girl, which happens to be me? There is a note, it reads: Valerie, Thank you so much for the nice article you wrote about my band. It is greatly appreciated. We have a gig coming up this weekend and I would really like it if you could come. I have a new song and your opinion would mean so much you me. Hoping to see you soon, Samuel
I decide to go.
I have no idea about these things. What do I wear? How am I supposed to look? I find myself with a bed full of clothes thrown on it. I decide to wear a cute sundress, yes a dress! So not me. And to top it off I am actually going to wear a heel! It gets better, like a robot in motion and without thinking; I put on eye shadow and lipstick! I get out the curling iron and make my hair full and flowing. What am I doing!? What the heck, only live once, right?

My nerves are shot. I have played a thousand gigs, why should this one be any different? Besides she might not even show. We are ready to start our set; we do one song, two songs, finally out of the corner of my eye she walks in. She is beautiful, my knees are weak. It is time for our last song. It is our new song, a ballad. The moment of truth, I begin and sing, never taking my eyes off of her. My heart is pounding.

The place is dark and musty and smells of beer. I order a glass of wine and sit down at a small table in the back. I don’t want to be noticed. His songs are good, I have to admit. I get engrossed in his music and voice and the night flies by. They are up to their last song and the set will be over. What then? The song has a slow melody, I feel his eyes on me and I look up. The song is for me. My heart can’t stop pounding. He is done and walks off the stage and starts in my direction, I rise and walk towards him.

I look into her eyes, say nothing and reach my arms toward her. The smell of her hair sends shivers through my soul. She is mine.

He reaches towards me, I feel his soft embrace. His breath on my neck sends shivers through my soul. He is mine.

here is the links to the first 2 entry for some background:

Part 7 of my Coven is now out.

It is a small update, sorry. But I am now caught up with the game and things will get juicy again..promise!
