Burning Passion, Where Are You?


Hello Everyone!

It’s me Mel!

Today instead of my weekly round-up it is a really special post that I’m giving you, it took me a lot of time before I decided to write it and seriously it would have been great if I didn’t have to write this post, however I just can’t continue to deny the fact that I don’t have the passion to write blog posts anymore.

Little Update from Mel

Hello Everyone!!

Hope you are all going well!

Been a right? Some of you might even be surprised to see me post something, other might be excited and I would say to those, don’t, not planning to come back… at least not yet; my plan is to coming back somewhere next year, so rest assured the blog will not die

The reason why I decided to post this update is to dust off the blog a little, I see some spider web here and there.

Some of you might know that I somehow lost my passion for my blog, I didn’t have the will to write anything, while that interest is not fully back, I do have a slight idea of one I’m planning for the future of my blog.

First I might rename it, I have one in mine and when the time will come I might ask you your opinion about it, you can even say it now, the comment section is there for a reason.

I also want to do a big cleaning.

At first I thought I would just start from scratch, but I just don’t wanna lose all the followers (569 WP followers at the moment of writing this post) I gained with time, however, I feel like my stats are not real.

If you follow me on Twitter (if not here your chance), you probably saw me mentioning it a few times, all my views are coming from the doujinshi that I featured on the blog.

My blog is not only a doujin blog, it’s an anime and manga with a dash of K-pop and video game blog, but right now it doesn’t feel like that and I want to change that and for that I need to delete all the doujinshi posts; I know that I will lose all my views, but at least the stats will really reflect what my blog is and how people are interested in reading it.

I will also delete all the fanfic that I posted on the blog since I post most of them on Archives of our own, for those of you who could be interested in reading them you can find them here; just make sure to look at the tag before reading, if you don’t you might have some surprises.

I might deleted other post and reorganized the tag and categories, I’ll will tell you more about it when the time will come.

This is pretty much it for now, the next time you will see me post anything is when I will prepare my come back.

Want to say a big thank you to everyone who is still following me despite my lack of post.

100 Babies Challenge: Part 2


Hello Everyone!

It’s me Me!

Welcome back to the 100 Babies Challenge!

If you are interested to read the introduction of this challenge you can read it here and you can find the first part here.

In this part Aurelia got pregnant again with twins again, thanks to the lot trait, the father is Malcolm Langraab, the name Eric and Felicia, no picture for now since they are babies and Sims babies pretty much all look the same, once they will be toddler you will be able to have some picture.

Also manage to get enough satisfaction points to have the Money Tree, just waiting for it to grow and to that little trick to put it into my household inventory (build mode) to be able to get the “fruits” and plant those, in the end I should have six of them.

The first set of twins, Arysa and Bryan age up to Teen and then Young Adult, they are not leaving in the household anymore and I shared them on the gallery, btw my Origin ID is MelinSimsLand.

Teen Arysa

Teen Bryan

Young Adult Arysa

Young Adult Bryan

I did some modification the the house, I was wondering if I should put the toddler or the teen in the dungeon basement, decide to but the teen, for now it’s pretty boring, but soon as I have more money I will make the teen a nifty appartement with their own door.

Regarding the second set of twins, Camilla and Damien, they are both to be ready to age-up.

Now some little tip for those of you who want to try the challenge.

The easiest value trait to get is responsibility, so always make sure Child and Teen do their homework and the extra credit. You can also buy school projects from the build mode catalogue. Taking out the trash also helps with the responsibility. The only thing I needed to do with Arysa and Bryan was to get them to Grade A in high school because they had their Responsible value trait before even being teen. If you are lucky the toddler will be ready to age-up to Child on a Friday, so you will have all week-end to work on the Value Trait and give them skill level for them to raise their grade quickly.

Another thing, if you can find a lot near a fishing spot it will help you to get money. Child can’t do much, but they can fish, which means they can bring more money to the household since you can sell everything they found.

As for the Teen, I will strongly suggest you to make them work their painting skill.Here why, to be able to get a grade A in High School, they need to have any skill level 3, painting is one of the skills, plus you can sell their painting for more money.

The dungeon

As you can see on the picture their room is a bed, night table, a desk, easel and a radio. Since they don’t have the creative trait they don’t get fun from painting, but when everything goes right, they can listen to the music while painting, which will raise their fun up.

This is all for the part 2
