Merry Christmas, Happy Yule, I'm moving!

I hope everyone is having a blessed holiday. I've got, as usual, a ton going on and plans for tons more :D
This blog is moving to wordpress as soon as I'm comfortably familiar with the interface and satisfied with the layout. Exporting the previous posts is already done. Am proud :D
I'm also starting a music venue/artist/DJ/Itookpicsofmedancingsomewhere blog on wordpress.

I really think the new year is going to be amazing and I hope it is for all of you.

Today I built...

This is an interior view of what will be The Rabid Pixie. 'But Tormie, what's The Rabid Pixie?'
I'm so glad you asked!
The Rabid Pixie, name courtesy of the stunning Amaranthim Talon, will be a novelty shop, of sorts. If you're familiar with 'Spencer's' in the U.S. you'll get some idea. Only there will be some furniture and other contraptions along with 'racier' (read: sex toys) gifts and clothing.
It's a modest sized build, with a few nooks. Styled a bit like a tiny castle (thank you 'Jaycee Tearfall' for the awesome textures!) with a simple wooden stair and barred windows. Sort of gives it a dungeon-y feel.
It is a very simple build, at present. Not very complicated at all, but I'm still patting myself on the back for completing the main build in less than a day.
Decorating will follow and products are being...erm...field tested as Research and Development are extremely important ^.^

On the burning of bridges

It sucks, but sometimes it's necessary to enable us to move on and enjoy the things that bring us joy.
It sucks, but it's the right thing, even if it hurts and the anger and confusion wells up and all you want to do is scream, "Why are you such a fucking coward? Why wasn't I good enough? Why weren't you good enough?"
It sucks, but 'in time' the pain and insecurity fades away and you don't feel like you did something wrong when you know you weren't even given the chance to.
It sucks.
It sucks.
It sucks.

The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire!

Fooled you! It's not really on fire, but what it is, is finished. All done. Ktxbai.
I don't have anything else to really say about it. It's done. *dances*
Doors next and maybe some ornamentation and I might can call this build 'almost done'. Go me ^.^

So, Tormie, what the heck are you up to?

I haven't posted in weeks! This is terrible, but I swear there's a good reason.
Two or three of them, actually.
In addition to the sim continent I'm planning, I've come up with...something big. Like, gigantic. That I can't talk about, yet. But it's exciting! And new! and omg, when I get to thinking about it I just sort of bounce and squee and then my brain fizzles at the vast amount of work in front of me. So, yea. That's one. Also, one that I AM going to talk about is pretty large, and I'm not sure where I'm going with it, yet, but it's a 'I must build' sort of thing.
Off and on I've been playing this kinda crappy (yet addictive and time eating) vampire/lycan game on the interwebs. It got me thinking about my time in Bloodlines in SL and the relationships and plain old fun I had with my clan members. I really enjoyed the clan aspect of it, but really couldn't have cared less about the minions and whatnot. Well, I do like minions, but you know what I mean.
Anyway! Reminiscing on the community and RP aspects, I got to thinking about some of the sims my clans used to utilize for the 'family' and I had several thoughts "Yanno, I could build a vampire sim." "I want to do vampire RP again" "Oh, look! Skittles!"
You get the idea. Well, I guess *I* got the idea. So, in one of my sandbox grids, a vamp sim is being born.
What I'm doing today though, is building a hospital. For another RP sim that isn't mine. Here's a pic of the build site. Don't laugh at my ambulance, I needed something for scale :D can laugh. I keep giggling at it.

Itty Bitty Gothic Prefab of Almost Doneness \o/

We still lack a front step, but the build is otherwise complete.

Second floor Balcony of Awesome Balconyness
Stair of Spiralyness

Trapdoor of Trappyness ^.^

Houston, we have a problem. I can't package it and sell it. I've tried it in a box and in a rezzer and the problem I'm having is that everything scripted (all the doors of Epic Dooryness - trapdoor and cell included) only stay positioned and open and close properly if the castle is oriented to face north. I've tried linking the doors and unlinking the doors and repositioning and resetting the scripts and I just don't know what else to do. I'm guessing there's some voodoo script magic I'm supposed to do here, but uhm...I'm proud I got scripts in the doors.
So, cute lil castle, almost ready for anyone who only wants to live facing north x.x
Perhaps a voodoo script magic faerie will descend upon me while I'm finishing the stair and modding textures for the second floor.
