Summary: Five generations of elves who have migrated from another world, Elphemerea, will have to learn to deal with the modern world in Riverblossom Hills and the surrounding area, while remaining true to their heritage and traditions. Meanwhile, I get progressively better at photoshop.
Generation One: Haldir
The story as a whole is rated PG for swearing, some violence, some sexual situations. Individual warnings are largely on the chapters themselves.

Chapter One: A Brave New World
Can't wait for the next chapter? Check out some official fics for the Elven Heritage Legacy. (Note: I haven't been putting a lot of these up recently.)
Download the Elves: This will be up and running when I start graduating this batch from college, and sort my geneticized skins. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I'm currently looking for better versions of the old Enalya pixie skins and for eyes where they've got the corners from Anva's Sclera, but no vast black gaps above when sims open their eyes wide.
- Current Location:Perched over the Lake
- Current Mood: bored

... Yes, I finally finished Switchpoint. No doubt I shall spend a considerable amount of time later in the year being not-finished with it.
Upcoming projects for the year:
- I do have another novel waiting in the wings. Some of you may have heard something about the premise: It revolves around the police officers of a fairy-tale world, dealing with accidental transformations, too many magical artifacts, seventh sons of seventh sons, and more idiotic youngest princes and princesses on quests than you can shake a stick at.
- Possibly some sci-fi. I never got around to finishing editing the short story formerly known as Body of the Week, (Currently pretending it's named Doors Nowhere) largely because work got busy. But I do have some fun soft-boiled sci-fi with aliens to do.
- I have a couple potential shorts brewing in Allie and Lindsay's universe. I'll get dragged back in eventually.
Mostly working on strengthening my feet. (I say, as I sit and stare at my once-more-swollen ankle.)
Starts October 31st.
Erm... last five worked on? I've been editing Switchpoint forever, to the point where I may be able to start NaNo some time in December...
1) “Thanks for dinner, Mrs. Ramaswami!” said Azalea, as they all stood outside the door, “it was delicious.” (Shadows Fall, the haloween sims short story that will have pictures soon if my game ever loads.)
2) We appeared out of nowhere in the middle of a slowly darkening field. (Switchpoint.)
3) There is a door in the wall down near the edge of the subway tunnel, leading away into the dark. (Doors to Nowhere.)
4) Eight made it to his desk in the lower hall only sixteen minutes late and slightly damp, and blushed furiously when his deskmate Ila looked up at him and rolled her eyes. (working title is "Pieces of Eight")
5) Date: November 17, eighteenth year post Transversum. (Fines Iustificare, which will, chronologically speaking, be the next Elven Heritage Legacy Interlude.)
... I'm sorry about that last one, but spoilers! And it should be out by some time in November since I'm not doing NaNo anyway. (I already have about 1/3 of the pictures...)
Aaaah cover art!
In which College happens, Lydia investigates, and Nymea demonstrates that she is just as awful as her parents.
WTF is an embed, Slideshare? Do you even know? Why are you so goddamn unfriendly? WTF is your fascination with linkedin
why are you such a butt trying to make me give my location...
If you find any Slideshare problems, please point them out! This is honestly probably the last slideshared chapter, I can't be having with leaving for 9 months and then them overhauling the whole site...
... No, this is not Short Story September's promised story. (I'll be sitting on that and submitting it places.)
This is what happens with this tumblr prompt and the fact that I spent Saturday Night helping my mom go through old photo albums from the 70's.
(No cut because if you're too young for one swear, go play outside.)
Frustrated, she tossed down the shirt and flung open her closet, and began counting her ruined items of clothing. “One, Two… Why then, now’s the time to do it. Hell is murky!” She seized a brown velour pantsuit off its hanger and threw it to the ground. “Fie, my lord, fie! A soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?” Sequined mauve bellbottoms were tossed away in a fit of pique, before seizing the next ruined garment. “Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?”
The Doctor and the Gentlewoman who attended her looked on in horror: they had never seen so much canary yellow terrycloth in their lives.

Thanks, dinuriel! (I got nominated for The Elven Heritage Legacy, which has a masterpost here. And I promise there's a chapter coming out... this summer. Yeah, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.)
As for nominees, since I’ve been shamefully not keeping up with as many people as I used to (and because a lot of lovely people have apparently dropped off the face of the planet in the last two years,) the list is a little sparse.
- Ning, for Colliding Stars (Now finished... wow, over a year ago? I live in hope she’ll return to simming some day.)
- Lesyasun, who has wacky, entertaining BACC’s Mellow Bay and Twinkle Hills.
- Mzyra, who’s been writing The Ryman Legacy for quite a while now.
- I look forward to catching up to In Verona by Winter
- I was going to do Shadow Sims, as I loved that story, but all evidence shows that Shadows is unlikely to be updated any time soon. (Whatever, maybe I can tempt her back into the fold...)
