Happy 10 Year Blogiversary!

10 Year Blogiversary

This blog is almost ready to get its Hogwarts letter!

Thank you to everyone who has joined and continues to join me in nerding out about video games 🥰🤗 I can’t wait to share more with you! What were you doing 10 years ago?

Site Updates: Mid-Year Edition

Happy middle of the work week to all of you! If the week hasn’t treated you right so far, you have two more days to kick its butt and I believe in you. You can get through it!

Today was a bit of an impromptu cleaning/organization day, so I’ve been doing some background maintenance to old posts and things like that. I have a few updates to the site to let you know about!

Contact Me Page Updated

A few months ago I updated my Contact Me page, but then I checked it today and realized it already needed updating again! So here I’ve updated the links to my YouTube channel, Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram – as well as my email. If you ever need to contact me for any reason at all, feel free to use any of these methods (or follow, or whatever you’d like).

Old Stories and Gameplay Archived

It was time to put some things to rest, and while I will always cherish and continue to improve on what’s left of The Creeper Legacy, the series and other small things I’ve done are now compiled in the Archives page. If at any point these things are revisited, I will definitely let you know.

The Creeper Legacy Table of Contents

While being archived, the table of contents for the Creeper Legacy has been fully updated. I’ve also added a note for those chapters that are missing images (basically all of them 😢), so you don’t have to guess.

The Great Re-Tagging/Re-Categorizing

I have updated and re-configured tags and categories, which doesn’t really mean much for you unless you’re into using them to find things. You can use the dropdown box on the right to look at specific categories, and all tags on posts should be up to date.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you around again! Happy gaming <3

2019 Plans

Hi, everyone. Merry Christmas to all who celebrate, and happy Tuesday to all. (I wrote this yesterday and had issues with posting so happy Wednesday to all now!)

It goes without saying that it’s been an extremely long time since I updated this blog. I could go over the multitude of reasons why… or I could just talk about what I would like to do going forward. I think I’d rather do the latter, mostly because like… that would be a lot ok, haha.

I don’t know how many people still follow The Creeper Legacy, or Sims stories at all (I hope it’s still a great and thriving community!). I’m very much out of the loop at this point, but if you’re here reading this right now I want to thank you for lending your support through all of these years. I still love playing Sims games and games in general and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing this time with you, as sporadic as I’ve been with updates.

Starting in January 2019 I want to update this blog more regularly, but I want to do more with it. I want to expand… all things. I want this blog to be a place to share not only the love of The Sims 3, but the whole Sims franchise, other video games, as well as share personal stories and thoughts with all of you. I want it to be a place of fun and honesty, laughs and real talk, nerdiness and freedom.

I know this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and I know changing types of content can be annoying, so I want to warn you all beforehand. If you don’t like this sort of content – the kind where you never really know what will be posted next, with Sims series and one shot posts mixed together – I completely understand and will take no offense if you decide to unfollow. You came for Sims 3 things, after all. If you enjoy various video game content and random anecdotes dotted with fictional storytelling, then feel free to stick around.

I hope you join me for the happy and exciting things I have planned, but if you’d rather not, I leave you with a heartfelt goodbye and a sincere thank you for all of your support <3 I really hope you’re all doing amazingly and I can’t wait to catch up with you all.

Take care, and see you again soon!

News, Updates, Stuff, and Things

Hi! Just a quick update to say that I’ve done some tweaking to the site. Not a lot of noticeable stuff, but it was brought to my attention that the images on the Creeper Downloads page were broken, so I replaced those with simple text until I can get new images. Feel free to download some Creepers and finish my legacy for me! Haha.

Going through those links made me miss them so much :( I’m hoping to get my new computer in the next month or so, so we’ll see. It appears I may have accidentally lost Jermajesty, though… THE GENERATION 8 (or 7?) HEIR. So, I will have to do some searching for him and/or figure out a Plan B. This poor legacy has been through so much, but I’m determined to finish it. Fingers crossed!

Otherwise, I hope you’re at least somewhat enjoying my adventures in TS2. It’s been nice to have that game to play and get back in the swing of writing updates again.

I hope you’re all doing well! I’ve been lurking on some of your stories and I’m enjoying seeing pretty TS3 images again. You’re all so brilliant. Thank you for sticking around!

A Very Non-Sims Update

Three posts in a year? Wow, I’m on a roll.

In case you couldn’t tell by the title, this post has nothing to do with the sims and more to do with my real life (I know, it’s really weird). There’s also a shameless dash of self-promotion, so if this sort of update isn’t your cup of tea, I apologize, but I hope you join me another time!

So, in November of last year, one of my best friends (and fellow simmer), andiewinslife, came to me like, “Yo, Starla. There’s this thing you should do, ok?” and I said, “Sure, ok.” So I did it. The result is this:

Fifty Shades of You!

This is a book that I wrote. It is a Fifty Shades of Grey parody that is gender-swapped and available for personalization! Exciting! If you click on it, it will take you to the website where it’s featured (amongst many other, probably much better books, some written by andiewinslife as well). You can create a free personalized preview and it’s fun for the whole family! …Except, um, it’s smutty, so maybe not the WHOLE family.

Anyway, I’m not trying to be completely like LOOK WHAT I DID OK BUY IT, but I did want to share this with you, mostly because you all have been so supportive over the years and I feel like telling you these things about my life (and I want to hear things about yours, too, ALRIGHT? I know I said, like, “This is a book that I wrote,” but it was so much more than that, and not at all simple for me. I learned so much in the process, not only about the writing/editing process, but about myself. I mean, I’d never written anything this big before. I’d never finished NaNo. I’d never even put more than maybe 5,000 words together on one project. Hell, I can’t even finish a ten generation sims legacy in less than, what has it been, a decade?

This was a little over 45,000 words with a pretty demanding deadline so I pretty much wrote it in a month. So… idk, I’m kind of proud of myself. I mean, it’s no Harry Potter by FAR, never, and it’s not like I’m going to be rich and famous and go on a book tour or anything, but it’s a thing I did that I never imagined I was capable of doing. It just goes to show that we are ALL capable of whatever the hell we want to do. GOT IT? Now go follow your dreams!

ILU all, sims update soon! <3

So Much to Say

Hey, friends! Where’ve you been? I’ve been waiting here, like, this whole time. Seriously, I haven’t disappeared at all. Never.

Okay, no, but really. You know when you think life is going in a certain direction and then it’s like, “Just kidding! Here, dodge this sledgehammer and typhoon while balancing these flaming balls on your head — and watch out for all these sharks and wasps, lol!” and you’re like “wtf life, I thought we were bros”? Well, this happened to me. Again. Shortly after I made my last post that was all, “Oh, hey, I’m gonna be around again!” life reminded me that, much like the sims we torture, I only think I have total control over my destiny.

Anyway, here I am with yet another post explaining where I’ve been. I’m sorry. I don’t have a computer to play on anymore. I don’t even have a real computer, in a gaming sense. In fact, this is what I’m using:

This 11-inch pink beauty (which I’ve named Umbridge) is all that I have at the moment. It’s great for what it is, but it’s not built for much more than the basics. I have not given up on the Creepers in any way, but they’re an impossibility for me until I get a new new computer (and I will be doing that asap).

What I HAVE discovered (and to my sheer delight because omg life is hard and I need it) is that I can play is TS2 on it, so I’ve been playing that to satisfy my simming needs. And now I’m going to tell you a very long story. There are pictures. Are you ready?

News, woo!

Hello, everyone! I’m back, I think, and I just wanted to update everyone a bit on… myself, I guess, haha.

First of all, I didn’t expect it to take this long to get back into things. I built a new PC and was so ready to get back to updating, but life went all cray cray yet again. Resolution was achieved though and a few small developments have happened since then.

1) I began streaming on Twitch. It’s addicting. I love being able to interact with people while I play games! It’s like socializing without all the pressure.

2) I decided to upload Let’s Plays to YouTube because I truly enjoy it and I don’t have enough hobbies (clearly).

3) I started going outside, which has thus far been not terrible???

…Oh, I guess that’s it, haha.

Anyway, so YES, I absolutely am going to be updating this – hopefully regularly, though I am a bit slower these days.

And a small update on the blog: Um, I think I messed up? Because I wanted to change my username, but I think I clicked the button to change the site address as well. And now I’m confused and hope I didn’t break anything. If someone could tell me what they see when they’re here, that’d be great because I have no clue LOL.

And a few months later…

I am an utter failure at updating and I’m sorry, but hey, good news!

In the next couple of weeks I’ll be ordering a new computer – because as it seems, my old precious baby will just never be sent to me because my ex sucks. It should arrive (fingers crossed) at the end of March/early April and if everything is good from there I’m going to get this legacy rolling and back in action again. And finished! And maybe I’ll start a new one! I want to make it all up to you because you’re all beautiful. I have so much stuff I want to do and I wish I could have my computer NOW NOW NOW but I’ll have to wait. Thank you, everyone, for being so lovely and I hope to read all of your amazing stories soon <3

The Journey Since October

Hey, everyone! It has, once again, been a few months since my last update, but please know I’m not doing this on purpose. I’m really going to try and get an update out soon (like THIS WEEKEND soon I hope), but in the meantime I figured I’d let you know what I’ve been up to since October. You can pass on this, or judge me so hard if you want :D
