Finally. I am back into swings. Anyway, this took several rewrites and the next two chapters I completely rewrote.

Chapter 14: Another Chance

And just a Spoiler that I thought might interest you all:

BEHIND THE SCENES

Spoiler:
While I was staging photos for the frame in Derek's room, I noticed something. Every time Grant picked up, held, or was near Derek he would scream his head off. I laughed so hard. So the bit about Grant in this chapter is from what I noticed in-game, and thought you'd all like that little behind the scenes tid-bit

I've been sneakily reading everything up until so far and must say: your writing is spectacular. Awesomesauce. I get totally wrapped up in the story, only to find cliffhanger upon cliffhanger :swoon:

Thank you! I do love cliffhangers, so expect them often. Not always, but often to keep you wanting more.

Okay, I really I hope I did this justice. I rewrote this chapter more than any other chapter (and after reading comments from the last chapter, I rewrote some of it again). Believe me, this was the hardest chapter to write.

Spoiler:
Well I have only read the first two chapters since as of right now I have a new gaming laptop and am currently downloading Sims 4 and most of the stuff packs, game packs and expansions. As someone who's never used it before, how does it run? Does it need a ton of mods like Sims 3 to work right or is it all built in? And most important question, do maxmotives and motherlode still work? I want to make a test family first before I jump right into a long, drawn out, multi-generational legacy or challenge just so I can get a feel for Sims 4 and how it runs. I know I'll have more questions once I finally get Sims 4 running on this laptop so I do hope you won't be too tired of seeing me pop up in your thread.

I personally have over 5k of cc, but that's because I am a CC addict. It runs well on my gaming laptop. The only long loading time I have is right when I load the game and that takes like 5 minutes (unlike TS3 where it would take up to 20 minutes on my old PC with just as much CC). In game the loading times with all my CC is less than 30 seconds still, even loading my save takes less than a minute--which has never been the case for TS3 for me. Motherlode works, and I use testingcheats and then right click the mail box and do maxmotives that way. I don't think maxmotives is a cheat in TS4. I do suggest getting MC Command Center if you are going to do a Legacy. Also Andrew's Pose Player and the Teleport Mod. bb.moveobjects on does not mean you can move sims. The teleport mod has to be used for poses, and there's a slight learning curve to it.

Thanks for taking a look at my blog. Hope it inspires you to keep with the game. And I'll answer any questions!

Okay, here's the start of Eli's final arc. Well, sort of. This arc leads into the last few chapters that will close Eli's generation. This arc is important for the events following it.

Chapter 20: Brother
