This chapter is all about relationships. Relationships between people and whatever brings them together. People are basically alone, but the relationships with their surroundings determine whether they feel lonely or met and heard. Although chance often has an influence, much depends on their own active choices. As the header image might suggest, Rasmus falls back into an old unhealthy pattern. Don’t despair….. All may not be so hopeless when we reach the end of the chapter.
65. Full house
I am finally ready with another chapter of Tusnelda’s story. I must warn against large amounts of cat spam, as Trix has once again become the father. Perhaps I should also warn against a hint of nudity… But the kittens are dressed in fur and should not cause any kind of outrage. They are just adorable. In this chapter, Rasmus and Don return home to the demands of everyday life and Tusnelda and Martin try to adapt to their new reality, say, with a house full of cats.
64. Seize the joys of life
Like humans, Sims are just small individuals subject to the forces of nature and their watcher’s whims. The question is whether they can see and take advantage of the gifts they receive in life. There is a kind of spell in the air in this chapter and it is absolutely certain that no one will be untouched when we reach the end. It is Rasmus and Don’s last day in Sulani and that is where we will begin.
In today's chapter, I hope readers are ready for more undisguised revelations. The cover image doesn't give many clues, other than the chapter features plenty of racing and some exceptional sunsets. Several of the well-known characters get surprising information and some are stripped down to the skin. Martin finally gets his act together to talk to Tusnelda and he has to realize that they are not quite on the same wavelength.
62. Beneath the Surface
After my summer vacation, it’s time to return to Tusnelda’s universe. When we left her, she had come to a realization about the most important thing in her life. It has created peace in her relationship with Martin. Rasmus has forever given up on his dream of Blue, which has set him free from longing, hope, anger and an unattainable dream of the ultimate love. All in all, this could continue as a peaceful they lived happily ever after story, except for a few unfulfilled dreams. That’s why I want to draw another character into the story. To scratch a little at what lies behind an anonymous facade. In this…
A doubtful summer update
My summer vacation is coming to an end and it's time to return to the story of Tusnelda and Trix. Unfortunately, I have ended up in a form of write blocking due to the game's update with wants and fears
In this chapter, we will focus a little more on how things are going with Tusnelda and Martin's decision to have a child. We will also meet Alice and the child who is soon ready to meet the world. I want to apologize that it's hard to get something sensible out of the birth scenes, but since this is Sims, I assume the reader understands.
60. Two steps forward
It has been several months since we last met Tusnelda, Martin, Rasmus and the cats. We'll see how they've evolved since we last met them. I'm sorry I use so many side notes. The chapter contains quite a lot of romance and it is one of the most difficult disciplines to write as it easily comes to sound so terribly banal. Readers should not be confused by the fact that there is still summer in the story because the original version of this story was written before 'Seasons' was published. In order not to overwork myself by bringing another element into the narrative, I stick to the original script.
59. Something stupid
For a start, I will warn readers against evil language and drunkenness in this chapter. The holiday is over and the intense time with Tusnelda and her family slips a little into the background. It’s time to see what Rasmus has been up to in the meantime. I would therefore regret that I once again drag readers through endless scenes of drunkenness, violent language, infidelity and lies. Even I am getting tired of the unconscious repetitions. I promise it will be more cheerful in the end.
58. Down below the waterfall
In this chapter, we return to Tusnelda and Martin in Granite Falls. They are still on vacation and most of their time is spent developing their personal skills. Another big part of the time, they enjoy the infatuation they have rediscovered. However, it will also be clear to anyone that Tusnelda is tumbling with some very difficult personal questions. If she ever reaches a clarity it will show in the end.
