Mary had been sleeping peacefully in front of the TV having drifted off at some point earlier in the night. Through the fog of her dreams she heard a loud crash and woke up, groggily at first. She looked at the blanket covering her with a feeling of confusion before leaving it on the couch to find out what had woken her up.


A bowl of pears sat on the floor, curiously undisturbed for something dropping off a counter. Something else probably made the noise, pears don't just jump off the counter and land perfectly up like that unless it was done on purpose. Mary wasn't really worried- she knew "the creature" had been "taken care of". Emily had probably just been doing something weird and forgot to put the fruit back up on the counter. That or they'd become sentient and were toying with her.


Mary: "You're grounded for a week! And that means NO TV!"


Mary headed upstairs then, hoping to maybe get some sleep in her own bed instead of on the couch. Something about her room was different, but she couldn't quite put her finger on what it was. Then she realized the blanket that had been covering her downstairs had come from her bed. She assumed Emily got it for her, but a niggling feeling made her wonder... She swooped down and picked up Miss Buggity from the foot of her bed.


Mary: "That blanket better have been Emily's doing- no boys allowed, remember?"

She looked at the clock- 5AM. She looked longingly at the blanketless bed, then back at the clock.

Mary: "Four paintings left in a five painting series and too much time spent goofing around in cemetaries. As if being conscientious enough to do my part in saving the world from vampires wasn't bad enough, I just have to have a work ethic on top of it, don't I? At least the studio should be quiet at dawn."


Mary slowly showered and dressed, trying to fill in the time before heading out the door. She wandered downstairs and gathered her blanket, making the bed with extra care.


When she ran out of things to do to fill the time, she simply waited for the sun to rise before leaving the house.

Huge lot, fake road running down the middle, 'houses' on both sides of fake street. ^_^

That's a smart idea! I hope you don't mind that I'm going to adopt it for future scenes because it certainly beats omitting (spelling?) windows so the other "sets" don't show up. *sweatdrop*

*ambles off to gorge herself on the rest of your updates*

I'm sure I got the idea somewhere else! It's a nice trick, but I swear my huge lots are really buggy. You probably won't have a problem- your graphics card is nicer than mine!

Hmm, I've heard that the 5x5 ones are especially so; I avoid those, although the space is tempting (right now I'm almost out of space and will have to think about building up instead)! I use the 4x5 ones instead.

The shots of Mary's house and the studios are done on one 5x5 lot and it drives me *insane*- sometimes the clothes go all blurry and I have to reset the refresh rate of the game to have them come back crisp. The cemetary scene was done on a 4x5 lot and I didn't have any problems at all. All the other 'sets' are on their own little lots- the only thing I have to be careful of is making sure I don't move everyone off it and find myself having to refurnish! (I tend to import a NPC and leave them somewhere in the corner to 'hold' the lot when I need to move someone from one set to another.)

One time, on a 5x5 lot, the headmaster refused to stick around: he'd go through the tour, and the schmoozing, but halfway through dinner (no matter what you served him) he'd always walk out and disappear. I eventually moved the family out of the lot and into another one.

Word! *grins* Right now I've got some guys sitting in the Novas's university house, just in case I need to go back there. Plus, they're keeping it warm for Cyrus, if and when he decides to go to college.

Brilliant idea! I may have to steal it off you - it will make the idea of a city look more realistic.

As always, wonderful to read :D

Late comment while rereading.
