Chapter 5.13

Enjoy today’s summary chapter of Eternally Yours. Let me know if you like the new format!

Note from SweetPoyzin: Alright.  As stated previously, I’ve lost the writing spark.  That said, I still adore Violet and Eternally Yours and I play that save pretty regularly and I take pictures with the intention of writing.  Violet, however, is quiet and she’s not giving me much direction.  I’m going to keep writing about her adventures but these next couple of chapters are more of a summary of silliness while I wait for Violet’s voice to return.


Previously on Eternally Yours…Violet met an adorable man named Chip who might have nefarious plans for Violet.  Then Violet hopped into bed with Lucifer only to dump him after he bought her a house.  *awkward* 

Now on to today’s episode…

Violet sold the house Lucifer bought her and used the money to make some much needed renovations on her house.  She added a second level, expanded her kitchen and living room, got some fancy new windows and doors, and fenced in her garden because Vampires are assholes.

Violet also added a glass-roofed deck off her new kitchen with plans to host many a garden party once the long winter is over.  It’s super lovely when the sun starts setting.

After renovating, Violet took to the upgrades.  The lint-free upgrade is a must because she spent too much money on this damn house to burn it to the ground with laundry.  She’s also got the Renaissance Sim lifetime wish so she’s got to hit Level 8 in 6 different skills so what better way to do it.

It was good timing on the expansion too because…

Sox was apparently knocked up by Lox.

Paternity testing not required.

Violet is basically becoming a crazy cat lady and I am 100% ok with this.

The Future of Eternally Yours

Going in a new direction.

05-26-19_5-56-30 PM.png

Let’s be honest, I’m burnt out on Eternally Yours.  I had hoped that after graduation, I’d get my spark back but it’s a no-go.  I popped into my save yesterday and I had a freaking BLAST playing but when it comes to writing, that joy just isn’t there anymore.

That being said, I still know where it’s going and Vi is on the track to get there, but I’m not sure the writing is going to come back.  Nonetheless, I still plan to play and post but I think the format will be more along the lines of my other stories.  I’ll post photos and tell you what’s going on but I just don’t see the writing bug biting again.  I could be wrong but after over 6 years of this story, my brain is tapped out.

Anyway, I hope you’ll still follow along with Violet, Lox, Sox, and Bacon and maybe take a peek at some of my other stories, too.  Thanks for being loyal fans and followers for all these years!  You are the reason why I keep up anything at all.

Can You Help Nonsimsical?

Let’s move mountains for Dani and her family!

Hey, lovelies!

I need your help.  Well, not me specifically, but a wonderful friend on mine who also happens to be a long-time simmer.  You may know her as Nonsimsical on Tumblr.  I know her as Dani.  She and her family are desperately trying to leave a very toxic situation and they need the help of this amazing community.

What’s scary is that this could be any of us.  I’ve seen the Sims community do amazing things for each other over the years.  I’d love to see us make this happen for Dani’s family.

Here’s her story:

We’re asking for your continued support and help in raising money so that we can move into a new place so that we can leave this toxic environment altogether and move to somewhere where we can feel safe and secure and raise our children in a clean and loving environment not filled with anxiety, stress, tears and angst! We previously raised $824 and $310 of that went towards preventing water shut off. We have $514 left to go towards first months rent, but we are needing your help in raising the money for a deposit and pet deposit. We are meeting with the manager of the new place, hopefully soon, as soon as he can break away from renovations on the home we applied for. Once I know how much for certain rent will be I’ll be able to update you guys on the full amount. As of right now, we know that the depost will be $1,000 and the pet deposit is $250. Again, the $514 we currently have will go towards first months rent and once I have a number I can update the difference. Housing goes fast as there’s not many places available anymore. We don’t want to pass by on this offer because the shady realtor and homeowner are giving us more time to move. We understand they want us out of the home and they want us out asap.

The Simblr community has been a solid rock for me the past 7 years and I have seen you guys do so many amazing and wonderful things when we all come together! I really need that support right now for my family!! Anything is helpful. Liking, sharing, donating! ❤ We can never pay you back, but we can and WILL pay it forward! Please, help our family leave the toxicity behind and move towards something that promises a better future for us!

With much love, hope and appreciation ❤
Dani, Chris, Hunter, Scout, Ash and Luna!

Why I Won’t Drop It: Holding EA and the GameChangers Accountable

We need to hold EA, the Sims community, and each other accountable in our words and actions.

Yesterday I posted on several channels wanting answers from EA about the issues surrounding DylanSimz, the GameChanger program, and a path forward.

Apparently, I touched a nerve. I was told I was being mean. I was blocked by several people. Based on the amount of angry messages I got today through various channels, people are confused by my stance on the EA GameChanger program and the situation with DylanSimz in general.

Allow me to explain. Grab some snacks, this is a long one.

I don’t want the EA GameChanger program dismantled. I understand it’s purpose. Marketing is expensive and this is a fantastic way for EA to obtain free marketing while promoting content creators. EA can keep it’s program, that’s the least of my problems.

I don’t need every single detail about what happened to the minors DylanSimz allegedly had contact with. I have enough information regarding what occurred. I wanted him out of the program and he is gone.

I wanted SimGuruKate removed and she was. I’m frustrated that she’s still part of EA but I am relieved that she will not be handling the GameChanger program so on that topic we are also square.

My main issue is: What is EA’s plan going forward? How are they going to protect our children? I want transparency and action in that matter.

I’m not asking for perfection or even an entire manifesto with every single step taken to this point. I want them to acknowledge they were wrong and that they’ve started towards a long-term solution.

I am indeed frustrated with the GameChangers. Their silence speaks volumes. Out of everyone in the community, THEY are the one who have the power to force EA to speak on this. PastelSims was the one who launched this entire process by releasing her YouTube video outing DylanSimz and the cover-up. We need more of that. We need to hold EA, the Sims community, and each other accountable in our words and actions.

I’m not letting this one go. If you feel the need to remove me from your list, that’s entirely your business. I’ve already lost dear friends because of it.

I’ve been part of this community since the beginning. 19 years now. I love this game and I love the people I’ve met because of it. I want to see it flourish and continue. But I won’t be quiet on this issue regardless of outcome. As someone who was groomed online by someone in power and was later sexually molested by that person, I will never stop fighting this fight until EA comes to this community with full transparency and a plan to prevent further harm to the children of the simmer community.

Thanks for your time. I know that was a read.

Sincerely,
Kate aka SweetPoyzin
