The Prodigal Daughter

Sunday, March 13, 2011

.
In anger and rage she struck out from home


to take to the world, to wander and roam;


believing her life to be incomplete


she stumbled upon


her source of defeat.


At first she'd met pleasure, independence, and fame,


But pleasure and happiness


are not one and the same;


So she blindly reached out to find who she was


and inevitably lost


all that she loved.


Disrobed and defeated she fell to her shins


pleading forgiveness for all of her sins:


"I never should have turned from your grace!"


As a shower of tears fell from her face.


"I ran from you not knowing the truth'


'only seeking to make the best of my youth'


'But I should have listened to the advice you gave'


'So much pain and suffering it would have saved.'


'I know I don't deserve your forgiveness'


'But with the Plumbbob above as my witness'


'I swear forever only you to serve'


'With all of my love'


'that you should have deserved."


He looked down upon her with a flash of his eye


a pain in his heart as he watched her cry;


for even as she begged for his favor


he'd already reached out a hand to save her.


With a merciful grasp he drew her near


To raze,


and slay,


all of her fears.


That day that she'd left him he'd wept and cried,


Believing her forever torn from his side;


But now, with her in his arms he confessed,


"Today, I have never been more blessed'


'For yesterday, I believed you lost, and died,'


'But now, she lives, this daughter of mine."

Sniff sniff. Oh Jeb my hero. I knew he would come to save her.
Jebidiah Kane, old or not, you are still one sexy hunk of sim. I wuvs you Jeb.

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 1:26 PM  

Oh course Jeb came! Came to kick some ARSE! Bwahaha.

Yeah... Even as an old fart he's still gonna have a special place in my heart!

Dee March 13, 2011 at 1:36 PM  

It's going to be heart breaking when Jebidiah Kane leaves the sim world behind. I'll probably cry.
If Mia doesn't start forgiving him soon, I'm going to give her a spanking.

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 2:17 PM  

If Mia's even still alive to get a spanking. >.> <.< *coughcough*

I agree though, seeing Jeb go will be hearbreaking--but even I haven't decided what'll happen that far in the future, yet.

PiB March 13, 2011 at 2:44 PM  

Woah, that was some serious vampire butt kicking Jeb. Good thing for you they hadn't all gotten into one room and two or three jump you at once.

Ah my pretty Jerod. That transformation looks a bit painful. And the teeth really aren't you dear.

Well, some of the vampires may be back but I'm not sure the Axe of Pandu is something Jerod survives. Magic axe vs vampire - gotta be score for axe. Well done posing with that one.

Hmm, did Jeb rescue Mia, or just a body for burial?

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 2:55 PM  

Haha yeah, Jeb got lucky they didn't gang up on him--though I imagine if he'd had that axe from the beginning he'd've made quick work of them. Death to vampires! Raaawr!

Yeah, I have to admit--Jerod's a pretty dorky looking vampire. ;D

Mmmm... Yeah. Jerod, sadly, did not survive. ;D Or rather, not-so-sad. I originally planned for him to just be arrested, but... I thought it a more fitting end. ^^

Good question. I did say I wasn't going to kill off Jeb, but didn't say anything about Amelia. Guess you'll just have to wait and see.

PiB March 13, 2011 at 3:02 PM  

True, if he'd had the axe, Bridgeport would have a much smaller vampire population now.

I always knew that Jerod might die in this blog. Which is a fine and fitting fate for the guy who used a Kane daughter *that* badly.

You did say the other day that Em was a reminder not to randomly kill Sims in your blog. But who knows, she's not looking well.

Dee March 13, 2011 at 3:29 PM  

No! She ain't dead. Mia. You wake up girl. Don't make me come over there.

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 3:42 PM  

Hahaha--yes, I did say that. ;) Doesn't mean I won't ever kill anyone important in the story ever again, though. I just gotta be careful, because I never realized the impact Em's death would have on pretty much both the story and myself.

*snickers at Dee* I think Jeb's thinking just about the same thing you are at this moment. ^^

PiB March 13, 2011 at 3:47 PM  

Em's death had a pretty serious impact on me. LOL Which is why she lives on with Bradley - in some corners of the Simverse.

I notice Jeb is not looking the happiest just now.

Doesn't help that I was reading angiebeno's legacy and someone died from vampire bite looking exactly like that.

Amelia March 13, 2011 at 6:04 PM  

DUDE.

That's pretty much all I can say at the moment. I really, really hope she's still alive. At first I was worried Jerod had managed to turn her, but meh, she can go to the science facility to get that taken care of. As long as she's not dead, I'm happy.

But by the Builder, she looks so peaceful and dead-like....

PiB March 13, 2011 at 7:41 PM  

An aside, when Kaleeko first got inspired by the idea of adding Jerod to the story, she double checked that she could do whatever with my Sims. I said yep, after all, I had killed one Jeb already by then. :) I was fairly certain his fate by the end wasn't going to be pretty.

I am fully satisfied that evil Jerod deserved what he got. Angry dad, axe in head - yep, he earned that one. And what a spectacular way to go.

Amelia March 13, 2011 at 7:45 PM  

Really, haha! I think I devoured those screenshots in like, two seconds, and then had to go back to make sure that what I thought had happened had really happened.

I think I'd be creeped out if she axed Moe or Jane... but it's kind of neat to see how the same characters wind up in different stories (like Jerod, or Brad/Em, etc).

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 7:45 PM  

LOL, Amelia! Well... I guess y'all'll find out pretty soon if she's still alive...

She was definitely dead for some of the screenshots, though. ;D Gotta love movie magic! (Er.. Screenshot magic. W/e. ^^)

PiB - I initially didn't actually plan on killing him, but when I was going through the buydebug catalog looking at stuff to decorate the dungeon with, I saw the axe and went, "HEY!" I was actually going to have them do an epic Kung-Fu battle, but then I realized this Jerod doesn't know a lick of martial arts, and would not reasonably be able to hold his own against Jeb, who taught martial arts classes for years back in Riverview. ;D

Definitely a spectactular way to go though, for sure. I totally love the expression I got on his face for it, too. ^^ HEHE!

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 7:47 PM  

Hehehe!! Well, I only kill off characters that I have express permission to do so with, and, I don't forsee any crazy deaths in Moe/Jane's future, in my blog.

It's really great to see the different paths different writers take with the same characters though, isn't it?! Gotta love the Sims for that!

PiB March 13, 2011 at 7:49 PM  

I thought she might have been dead at one point cause Jeb is sobbing in the doorway. Whether she stays dead is a bit different.

"do an epic Kung-Fu battle, but then I realized this Jerod doesn't know a lick of martial arts" flashback Indiana Jones and the sword fighter. LOL Fortunately Jerod was lacking firearms.

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 7:52 PM  

In that shot with him in the doorway, he's actually doing the Mean-Spirited angry yelling animation thing. He was quite, quite angry. ;D The only shots where the Amelia is actually "dead Amelia" is the ones where she's dropping/just dropped to the ground. The rest, she's napping on an invisible bed, otherwise the Grim Reaper would've distracted everyone on the lot from doing what they were supposed to be doing. As you can imagine, these screenshots are *totally* not in the order that I took them.

It's... MAGIC!

PiB March 13, 2011 at 7:57 PM  

Hmm, I am in trouble. I don't seek express permission to kill your Sim/s if necessary. It would have ruined the suspense of the black widow story if I had gone "Hey, Dee, Kaleeko, Chrysame, can I kill some of your guys?" LOL

They can also crop up as love interests (straight or gay) or whatever.

The ones in neighborhoods are safe but not the ones in stories. If that *does* worry you, it's safer that I don't use them.

Amelia March 13, 2011 at 8:05 PM  

Aw, Kaleeko! Well if you ever DO want to use them for grisly purposes, just ask, I really don't mind.

I actually had to stage Amy's death about 3 different times to keep the grim reaper from ruining things. I didn't know there was an invisible bed! The things I learn by stalking your blog.

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 8:10 PM  

Hehehe--well, at this point, the Pesces have a small part in the next Season, but it's nothing grisly. ;)

Yep, I've had troubles like that before as well, Amelia. I remember when I was doing the scene where Meredith killed Chandra, I had to give them both the unlucky trait so I could keep killing them over and over without having to reset my save. Haha! ;D

Aye--I use the DebugEnabler mod to turn a bed invisible (as well as move it down to ground level), but it's a bit touchy because it's really hard to get rid of an object after you've made it invisible. ;D

Amelia March 13, 2011 at 8:25 PM  

I'll keep that in mind when I stage her death again... (Which I will be doing since I'm still not happy with how it turned out).

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 8:32 PM  

:) Cool, glad I could help! I know what you mean, though. I always find myself re-doing stuff for better screenshots... It's almost impossible to get some things right on the first take. With the "important" scenes, at least.

Amelia March 13, 2011 at 9:41 PM  

Agreed! Part of it is needing to fix a few details because of the Chase plot change, but a large part of it is wanting to improve them now that I know more about taking screenshots.

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 9:43 PM  

Well, if you ever want any advice or anything with screenshots, feel free to ask. I'm always willing to offer tips.

Like: The Tab key is your friend! ^^

Amelia March 13, 2011 at 9:47 PM  

Wait wait- WHAT DOES THE TAB KEY DO? See, I don't even know this.

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 9:53 PM  

EEEE, Fun fun fun! Okay. I'm going to give you a little homework assignment. Once you have your game loaded up, zoom in on something like you're about to take a screenshot of it. Then do this:

1. Hit Tab
2. Zoom aaaallll the way in; then zoom aaaalll the way out. Then zoom back to a normal distance.
3. Tap the A, S, D, and W keys to wiggle around.
4. Hold Shift+A. Then Shift+D. Then tap Shift+S.

You will never look at taking screenshots the same ever again. ^^

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 9:53 PM  

Oh, and hit 'tab' again to exit the mode--which is called Camera mode, btw. ;) You can take screenshots and videos while in it.

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 10:00 PM  

Oh drat, I keep forgetting things!

You use the mouse to point, the WASD & QE keys to move left, right, forward, back and up and down; then shift+A and shift+D to tilt the camera.

It is the most awesomest thing for screen captures ever. That's how I get all my shots, and not have to do a lick of editing on them before uploading.

Amelia March 13, 2011 at 10:15 PM  

My mind is blown. THIS IS FANTASTIC, KALEEKO. Thank you so much!!

Kaleeko March 13, 2011 at 10:33 PM  

Always a pleasure to spread the loooooove! :D Trust me, my mind was definitely blown when I first learned about it, too.

Amelia March 13, 2011 at 10:49 PM  

The difference is drastic! Oh man, I can't wait to try out my new shots.

Kaleeko March 14, 2011 at 12:03 AM  

I really can't wait to see what you come up with, Amelia!

Jennifer March 16, 2011 at 11:50 PM  

Wow! Truly awesome Miss Kaleeko. :)

I really loved this update. Yey, go Jeb!!

I knew he'd kick their vampire butts into next week. lol Amelia is alive but oh dear is she, you know, going to turn?

Wonderful shots too.

Finale, here I come! :)

Shritish March 18, 2011 at 9:05 PM  

Wow, pretty amazing overall.

Kaleeko March 18, 2011 at 9:09 PM  

Oh god you is stalking me. ;D *flee*

Thanks, babe. :) <3

Hippieathart March 27, 2011 at 11:47 PM  

WOW. Im just now reading up on all this ( Im new :D ) and this was truly amazing!! I need night life dammit. LOL. XD

Kaleeko March 29, 2011 at 10:33 AM  

Well hello there, Hippieathart! :D Thank you!!! *blush* I'm so glad you enjoyed it, as well as glad you found your way here! Many <3's. :)

Night life is pretty stellar! If you get the opportunity to buy it, I definitely would recommend it, if only for the new hottubs and bars and such it adds.

Hope to see you again! Once I'm completely back home again I'll be sure to stop by your blogs and check 'em out. Till then, peace!

I have to catch up. By the way, do you know how to make the game show a family tree on the xbox? The game only shows living members.
