So, I’ve finished playing my rotation, and rather than getting straight on and making my backups, I decided to get everyone’s pictures up to date for the Who’s Who and family tree, so head on over to them to see everyone who has become an adult recently and also a few sims you’ve not met yet. I spent an enjoyable few hours making sims of extended family members for both Sophia and Lauren and Sir Horace, and as is often the case, seeing the sims helped me to cement some of the aspects of their characters in my mind. Have a drabble that came to me this morning concerning one of them.

Title:  Gweneth
Rating: U. 
Spoiler rating: 2/10. 
Summary: Sarah Jane attends a formal ball with Sir Horace.
Notes: The incident with the bishop is entirely fictional, and I've taken a liberty by making it seem that Disraeli and Gladstone swapped in and out of power more than they actually did.
Word Count: 993.

“Horace, there you are! I knew you would skulking somewhere around here!”  )

dicreasy2: (Bethany halloween 2)
Title: Learning to Ride
Prompt: Saddling a Horse [livejournal.com profile] sim_spiration.
Rating: U
Summary:  Ezra starts to teach Bethany how to ride
Notes:  I'm not particularly happy with this: it feels a bit stilted and forced and repetitive, but I want to start getting back into the habit of writing (rebuild is nearly done, yay), so I'm going to put this here anyway.  Also, I've never ridden a horse, let alone ridden one side-saddle, so I apologise for any inaccuracies in the description of posture etc.

This is my first response for the + 5000 fall in love meme organised by [livejournal.com profile] fireflowersims.

Title:  Oh For a Bit of Peace and Quiet.
Prompt: A&A: Valentine's day...but they have SIX kids. I can't imagine a lot of private time in there from [livejournal.com profile] peasant007
Rating: PG I suppose. 
Summary:  Anthony and Alexandra return home after a night out on Valentine's Day.
Notes: Argh, I’m so rusty. I’m not overly pleased with how this all read once I got it down on paper. It sounded so much better in my head when I was thinking it up. It doesn’t seem to flow as well as I would like, at all. But then again, asking for prompts for this meme, is a way to get me back to writing, so hopefully that’s all to the good, and I’ll improve. That being said, this did turn out being longer than I thought it would, and could probably do with editing.

On to notes about the circumstances of this piece. It’s set not long after Zane joined the family (my time of year is all messed up I know, but that’s the constraints of the game for you), so all six of the children are at home. Their rough ages are: Bethany and Christopher, 17, coming up 18, David, 14, Sarah Jane, 12, Zane 10 and Mickey 9.

Now where were we? )

Title:  Storytime,
Prompt: Stanley dreams he is surrounded by crinkly-nosed grandchildren, and then wakes up to an empty house.
Rating: U. 
Spoiler rating:  1/10. 
Summary:  Er, see the prompt.
Notes:   I loved writing this, and it takes place roughly at the same time as chapter 24.3
Word Count: 1,720.

My Card.

Really, what was the point of having grandchildren if you couldn’t spoil them rotten, and then hand them back to their parents? )

Title:  Clandestine,
Prompt: A clandestine meeting at the Natural history museum.
Rating: U. 
Spoiler rating:  1/10. 
Summary:  Vicky attends a meeting.
Notes:  I don't really have much to say about this.  It would be nice to say that this is a lead in to a new interlude, but it's not.  It's just a little scene that came to me on reading the prompt.  Oh!  But it does let me claim a Myshuno!
Word Count: 665.

Title: Unpleasant doings
Prompt: “What am I doing here?”/Dark alleys.
Rating: U. 
Spoiler rating:  10/10.  Yes that is a 10.  Read at your own risk.
Summary:  Walking through dark alleys at night.
Notes:   I'm still working out how exactly this is going to happen, but a version of this drabble will appear as a future scene in a few chapters time.  I've kept it vague, and I won't be answering questions on it.
Word Count:  247

Title: Corsets and Bustles, oh my.
Prompt: Fashion/the pros and cons of dressing Victorian.
Rating: U. 
Spoiler rating:  1/10.
Summary:  The Sophia sisters discuss fashion as they dress.
Notes: Basically this is just a nice little scene showing a bit more of both characters.  The emphasis is more on fashion, than the pros and cons of their way of dressing, but that's in there too.  Also, once I started writing these two, I realised I could have gotten very rambly, so I've tried to keep it on track.
Word Count: 1,377

"Oh lord, please do not let panniers become fashionable again." )

Title: Bedtime
Prompt:  Eddie/Carmen
Rating: PG. 
Spoiler rating:  3/10.  This is canon and takes place in the future, but there's nothing you don't know in it.
Summary:  Eddie and Carmen getting ready to retire for the night.
Notes:  I wanted this to be a sweet look at part of the daily routine of one of my favourite couples.  It turned out to be a struggle to write and get sounding nice, and not too rushed.  I've done so little writing over the past six months, I feel broken.  Anyway, this is hopefully to get me back in the habit of writing regularly, and isn't the best, but I hope you enjoy anyway.

What's this?  Two sizable drabbles from me in two days?  What's going on?

I have no idea, but I'm pleased to be writing again. 

Anyway, I was inspired by two prompts today, and this also takes place two years before we meet the characters in it.  Enjoy!

So, this is long again, which is why it's over here.  I also don't quite know what was going on in my mind when I was writing this this morning.  My prose isn't normally as florid as the first couple of paragraphs of this are so, yeah.  It's not really my style of writing at all, and I don't know why I wrote it this way, but I hope it's fun to read .  Enjoy.

Sim_Spiration drabble posted over here because I talk far too much.  Enjoy.

"You really are a spoilt brat!" )
dicreasy2: (Bertie serious)
I've written far too much again, and what was a small idea has snowballed as I've set the scene for the pay off.  Enjoy. 

"You know I'd walk a thousand miles if I could just see you tonight." ("A Thousand Miles" - Vanessa Carlton) )
dicreasy2: (Bertie serious)
First off, this is over here, rather than [livejournal.com profile] sim_spiration ,  because I went overboard as is normal for me at the moment, and ended up writing loads.

Secondly, a version of this scene will be appearing in chapter 24.2, so if you wish to remain un-spoiled, don't read it.  Everyone else, enjoy,

"Did I adequately answer your condescending question?" (The Social Network) )?”

Yet another drabble which is far too long for the comments at [livejournal.com profile] sim_spiration .  I'm making a habit out of this.  I'm also making  habit out of writing mushy stuff, but never mind.  :D
“Some say love it only comes once in a lifetime / Well, once is enough for me” ("Up Against the Wall" – The Whitlams) )

I have written far too much again.  And I really thought that this would be a small piece.

Anyway, here it is:

Emina Legacy )
dicreasy2: (Halloween Bethany)
So I went over the character limit with this one, so it's over here.  I'm also not that happy with the ending to this, but here it is anyway.  Enjoy.

Ok, so this is a late drabble for [livejournal.com profile] sim_spiration .  It's actually part of a future scene, but I didn't feel up to writing up my ideas when the prompt went up.  It needs a bit of polishing, but enjoy.

Ok, my long drabble for today's prompt Donna Doran is under the cut.  It's a work in progress and will more than likely appear in some form in my legacy.
