Rebuilding the Breech

January 14th, 2010

The staggering loss of Noni and Marques had Carrie rethinking her intention to leave home. Despite the fact that she felt like an outsider, she realized that all she ever wanted was acceptance. Now that they were gone, it was something she would never receive. But perhaps instead she could mend the fences with her sister. They had been estranged for so long, Carrie didn’t know where to begin. So she simply invited her to dinner one day at the Bistro where she worked.

Long Story Short: So far so good. Custom content appears to be working. I did have issues with Riverview which I solved. Nothing appears borked for the moment.

The family knew that Marques had been “living” on borrowed time. But they were never sure how long that was going to be. Years had passed. The twins, Carrie & Mara, had grown from toddlers to young adults. Everyone had become so focused on furthering their dreams and careers that family time had fallen to the way side. The twins no longer needed help with their school work or anything else and Noni had taken her husband’s presence for granted. And so it was that Marq quietly passed on for good.

As they hit their young adult stage, I got to choose their last trait. For Mara: Virtuoso; For Carrie, Natural Cook.

On Top of the World

January 10th, 2010

With their new young adult status, Noni and the twins decided to splurge a little with the extra money they had been saving to spruce up Mara and Carrie’s rooms. Once more, Carrie deferred to her younger sister using the same reason that she was never in her room anyway. Although she did choose to decorate the room in colors to match the outdoors as well as adding a plant. The room continued to be a storage room for their childhood toys by an unspoken request. On the other hand, Mara chose to decorate her room in dark colors as her favorite color was black. She repainted the easel to match even. She also wanted a chair so she could study in the seclusion of her own room. Then she made one request to Carrie; Mara wanted a computer. Unfortunately, there was no way one would fit in her tiny room. Since her twin’s room was so sparsely furnished, she asked if a desk and computer could be put in there to be shared by everyone. Reluctantly Carrie agreed, with the stipulation that it match the rest of her room. Noni chose to do a few small things that she felt would make a big difference. First she matched the colors in both bathrooms, instead of having a hodgepodge collection of mismatched fixtures. Finally, she rearranged and added furniture to the living room to make it a more inviting area to entertain guests in. The result was very satisfying.
