Valley 2

The Reckoning


I write Sims 3 stories. I rarely reblog things. I like personal text posts - I'm here for friends, not Simbots. I am, according to a friend: sweet, fierce, kind, honest, silly, smart, giving, talented, and a fabulous friend. :)

LJ Idol

So I signed up for LJ Idol this week - well, it’s Second Chance Idol.

Or “Last Chance”, since this is supposed to be the last full season.

The signup deadline was extended, so I thought hey - if any of you want to come write a thing a week and make new friends, here you go!

The first post has the information about signups. :)

xilmandr replied to your post: Lap kittens replies!

Kiiitteeenssss! :D My lap kitty just went somewhere, so I have only two next to me right now. If I had kittens, I just couldn’t let them go, I would keep them ALL. ^_^

Their mother showed up abandoned and pregnant in our backyard a few months ago. I’d love to keep them all, but we already had a few cats when she showed up. 

My mother is talking about wanting two, and then we could still keep an eye on them and see them sometimes. We can maybe keep one or two of them. The others..I don’t know. We’re just going to have to do our best at vetting potential adopters and make sure that they go to the best home we can find for them, and encourage the people to stay in contact with us.

Sometimes the darkness and I walk through the garden of knowledge and ignorance.
I eat the apple from the apple tree as we walk. Its juice dribbles down my chin. I wonder when the knowledge of all reality is going to hit. How will it feel? Like an icepick to the eye, maybe, or like an ulcer eating into a vein. I am looking forward to it.
The darkness is still wearing the bones. Its calcaneus bones and metatarsals click on the sidewalk. Its red eyes burn and burn and burn.
It says “The apples are meaningless. They hold no power. You wish for knowledge, but your humanskin cannot handle it. It would destroy you.”
It says, “You are innocent. You make up illusions because you cannot handle reality, and you believe in your illusions so much. Like your illusion that an apple has meaning, that an apple can show you the secrets of reality.”
It says “I have taken you to Reality, and you still cannot see it. Because you are not meant to see it. You see streetlights and a stream and wild long grass and a meandering walk. You do not see the howling emptiness.”
It says “I like you as you are.”
It says, “Give me the apple.”
I answer “Too late”, and I swallow the last bite.
The icepick drives right through my eye into my brain, the ulcer eats into my vein, the streetlights and the stream and the wild long grass and the meandering walk disappear, and I howl and howl into the emptiness.

Loading Sims 4 for the first time in a while

medleymisty:

I have been having problems with motivation and energy and will to do things lately.

But well - if you guys remember LJ Idol, the signups for Second Chance Idol opened this week.

And the first topic is “in the garden”.

So….here we go. :)

Okay, I am officially signed up.

And yes, the Surreal Darkness bits I am posting right now are my entry for this week.

thank you, I wanted that song to run on a continuous loop through my head.

I believe you are using sarcasm! ;)

If it helps, I’ve actually had Santa Claus Is Coming To Town stuck in my head the last couple of days.

Sometimes the darkness and I are still sitting in the garden when the sun rises.
I stand up and turn around. I look out across the road, at the trees and the houses and, far off in the distance, the empty flat skyscrapers.
If I went over to the apple tree and pulled off an apple and ate it, would I become like the darkness? A void that has to wear the skins of other lives?
Would it be worth it to know reality?
I am so hungry.
The darkness says that its bones are weary. I wonder if it means that it’s tired of wearing its boneskin, and if it will find a new skin soon. Maybe if you know everything it is easy to get tired of skins, to become bored with all the lives that you try. 
I ask, “What is it like to know reality?”
The darkness sits on the bench, which does look rather uncomfortable when all you are is bones, and it does not reply. Not for a long time. I turn back towards the garden, and I sit back down next to it.
Finally, it hisses an answer.
"It is like being a skeleton sitting on a wooden bench. There is no comfort, no support, and you are utterly alone in the emptiness."
I say, “Oh, is that all? I’ve been through that already”, and I reach for an apple.

Sometimes the darkness and I go to the town garden at night. We discuss the value of knowledge and death, and the taste of apples.
The darkness says that it is better to be ignorant and to live forever than to know reality and to die, and that apples are too sweet for its taste.
I say “You know reality, and you live forever.”
The darkness looks at me. I cannot read the depths of its glowing red eyes. It hisses “Do you think that I am alive?”
I look at the apple tree, at the yellow light from the streetlamp falling through its leaves. The apples look ripe and juicy, and I have always liked sweet things. My stomach rumbles.
I don’t know anything, and I am dying anyway.

take me down to the paradise city
where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
oh won’t you please take me home
—————————
Context for the lyrics: trying to decide between going with the darkness or Seth for the LJ Idol thing, and liking the comforting familiarity of Seth in his garden.
But it’s due Tuesday night, so I don’t know if I have time for an extended Seth thing.

Are the plants happy? Or are they DEATH PLANTS!!!!?

Well, they were just planted, so they’re probably happy right now. We’ll see after Seth talks to them some though. ;)
