Chapter 3.11: Dear Diary, Matchmaker, Matchmaker

by Kymber

Dear Diary, riding off with Matt was just what I needed at that moment. Don’t get me wrong, though. I wasn’t naive enough to think he was some kind of knight in shining armor. It definitely was good timing, however.
After we were off the St. Cyr farm, he slowed the horse from a gallop to a trot. I didn’t have any idea where we were going, and I didn’t really care. It was so upsetting to me to see how Dax had reacted to Elliott’s innocent embrace. Still, I was sure he would come to his senses later. At least, I hoped he would.
Meanwhile, I was determined to enjoy the horseback ride away from the farm. After a time, we found ourselves on the beach in a pretty spot. Matt lithely hopped down from the horse then turned to assist me. Did I see a smile on his face when I waved him away and slid down on my own?
When he saw me smiling back, he tipped his hat downward and patted Kelty lovingly. He was good with horses and other animals. As an animal lover myself, I really admired that about him. Well, I admired a lot of things about Matthieu Larochette.
He had a calm simplicity about him which immediately put whomever he was with at ease. I found that whenever I was around him, if my nerves were frayed, they were instantly calmed. I couldn’t really explain it any better than that. He was just a really pleasant person.
“I guess you rode up at the right time,” I said, looking around. The coolness of the morning had given way to a heavy humid heat but it wasn’t terribly uncomfortable yet.
“I’ll admit, it wasn’t exactly an accident. I saw what happened.”
“So, you decided to rescue me.”
Surprisingly, he shook his head and removed his hat. His golden hair glistened under the hot sun. “You don’t need to be rescued. I just thought it’d be fun to give you an easy out.”
I began to laugh a little, then realized he was being completely serious. I didn’t need rescuing?
As if reading the question in my mind, he continued, “You’re stronger than you think, Blue. The way you work and don’t need help dismounting Kelty.” His hazel eyes were full to the brim with sincerity and I couldn’t look away from them. It was as if he was holding me captive. “And the way you befriended Dax and brought him back to a life he wanted to live again.”
Slowly, I began to realize that Matthieu observed more than I’d realized yet perhaps he was giving me too much credit. “I had very little to do with the progress Dax has made.”
“You know that isn’t true. It’s because of you he has ventured out of that dark place. You know it is. You know that he… has a crush on you.”
For some reason, this pricked my nerves a little. “A crush? Is that what it is?”
Matt paused after realizing his assessment stung me a bit. “What I think is that he’s never been around women before and he has nothing to base his feelings on – no frame of reference.”
“That’s harsh, don’t you think?” I snapped.
He shrugged easily, not the least bit worried that he’d offended me. “Blue, has he professed love for you?”
“He would have if I hadn’t stopped him,” I said quickly.
“Why did you stop him?”
It was a simple question. Still, I found it difficult to answer. I’d stopped Dax because I knew I wasn’t ready to settle down; at least not until I had worked things out with my family. And, if the truth be known, I wasn’t sure yet of my feelings. It was too difficult to figure my emotions out when I had the terrible, sinking feeling there was something wrong with my father.
“Blue, you’re a very beautiful woman,” Matt said. Something in his voice had changed; it was was soft, yet not weak; caressing, yet not inappropriate. “I think you will have attention from every man on the island. But that attention is not the same thing as appreciating a person, of cherishing them.”
“Why are you telling me this?” I asked, barely above a whisper. My pulse had quickened and I felt little beads of sweat break out on my forehead.
He glanced up toward the sun, squinting his eyes as he usually did to judge the time of day. Somehow, though, I don’t think it registered because I don’t really think he cared; he was just buying time. Finally, after what seemed like ages, he looked directly into my eyes. It was a directness I had come to appreciate about him but I still felt a little nervous.
“I care deeply about you,” he said simply as if that explained everything.
“I – care about you, too,” I murmured. Glancing at my feet, I decided to just be out with it. “Did your bringing me here have anything to do with what you wanted to talk to me about before?”
“When you rudely ran off?” he laughed, making me smile. “I think we had a miscommunication.”
“We did?” I breathed.
“Definitely.” And then he began to explain. “I wanted to show you something and see what you thought. You see, I’ve been working on the St. Cyr farm since I was a teenager and I’ve saved most everything I’ve earned. My dream is to have my own farm.”
With relief, I smiled widely and inwardly chided myself for thinking he was about to propose to me or something. I’d totally read his intentions wrong!
“I think that’s wonderful,” I said.
“You might not if you saw the farm I’m looking at. It’s really run down. But it’s large,” he quickly added. “There isn’t anything about it that doesn’t need some attention. At the moment, the cow corral and chicken coop are being rented out to Prosper Ulrich. But if I bought the place, Prosper might let me buy the animals, too, since he’s old and doesn’t much like farming anymore.”
Unable to hide my excitement for him, I said, “This sounds absolutely terrific! I could help you clean the house and yard – oh! And I could make curtains, too.” Then I realized something that made me a little sad. “But I’ll miss you. You’ve been a true friend to me.”
Gently taking my hand, a smile on his face, he said, “That’s all I needed; someone to tell me I’m not crazy for jumping into this.”
“You’re far from crazy. I think it’s so nice that you want to have something that’s yours and yours alone.”
“Hopefully, though, I won’t always be alone.”
I caught the hidden meaning of his words, or maybe not so hidden. But this time, I didn’t feel scared. I still wasn’t ready for a relationship, but I felt safe in the knowledge that Matthieu would never hurt me or put me on the spot. It felt good to know he respected me enough to not push me into anything.
“You could always get a dog!” I said brightly, making him laugh.
Matt and I explored the beach for a little while longer and he promised to show me the farm he was thinking of very soon. In the meanwhile, I told him how proud I was of him that he was thinking about his future and had saved his money. Not that this island had that many places to spend it. I mean, there was the fabric store and the general mercantile. That was about it.
On our way toward home again, I asked Matt if he knew of Nicholas Wyatt. I could tell in his response that he was curious as to what I was up to, but he didn’t say anything about that. Instead, he dropped me off at the Wyatt place and asked me if I’d be all right getting home on my own.
“Of course,” I assured him.
“Just the same,” he said as he dismounted, “I’ll leave Kelty with you and walk back.” Before I could protest, he tipped his hat at me and said, “There’s no argument there. I will feel better knowing you have her.”
And so, he left Kelty with me. I watched him walk down the road until I could no longer see him. Then, I finally turned toward the farmhouse in which Nicholas Wyatt lived.
When no one answered after I knocked on the door, I followed a little path between the house and out buildings to the back where the barn was. And that’s when I met the only man Agathe had ever loved.
Right away, when he saw me, he began talking. “Who are you and what do you want?” he demanded.
I can’t say that I’d pictured just what he might be like, but this wasn’t exactly what I’d envisioned, that was for sure. In response, I briskly walked up to him, determined that if Agathe didn’t intimidate me anymore, neither would this guy.
The lines on his face were deeply etched, making his rigid features stand out even further. But he didn’t really seem to have the squinty-eyed sternness of Agathe’s face.
“Hello, I’m Blue Capra.”
“I’ve never seen you.” The way he said this almost sounded like an accusation. In response, my cheeks flamed their usual red.
“I’ve been around,” I said casually. “Actually, I live with Agathe, Elliott and Dax St. Cyr.”
This had his attention. “Oh? How are – uh, how is Agathe?”
“Well, I’ll be honest with you, Mr. Wyatt, she and I were speaking about you just yesterday and her memories of you are so fond.”
His face softened almost immediately and he quickly said, “You don’t say?”
Nodding, I continued with, “Yes, it’s true. I’ll admit that before yesterday, I had no idea you existed. She and I were talking about Dax, you see, and – ”
“That poor boy,” he lamented. “That was the whole trouble. After his accident, she broke our engagement. It broke my heart that she held herself responsible and felt she had to be punished.”
I was so relieved to hear this. Maybe playing matchmaker wouldn’t be as difficult as I’d thought. “You know, it broke my heart, too. Especially with the way she still talks about you.”
“That warms my heat, Miss Capra, but what is it you’ve come here for?”
“She never got married, you know.” After he nodded, I carefully said, “And you never did either, did you?”
“No.” Suddenly, there was a darkness in his eyes as if he was feeling the pain of being thwarted all over again. “I think you should leave.”
“Oh, but won’t you consider coming over for tea?” I pleaded.
But it was to deaf ears that I appealed because before I knew it, he was shooing me off of his property. As I rode Kelty down the dirt road, a breeze came through, blowing road dust up into my face and making me cough. It was just another thing to add to my dampened spirits.
I had wished nothing more than to see Agathe happy again with the man she loved. But why did romance have to take so much effort and skill? It baffled me, it seemed, more than anything else in life.
To make matter worse, when I finally got back to the farm, there was a note awaiting me. It was the same type of paper of the previous note and I realized right away that it was from Mango and must have been put on my bed by Dax. When I opened the old, worn paper, several simoleons fell out onto my quilt.
The note read:

“It is urgent that you go home immediately. Enclosed is enough money for clothing and tickets. I have made the necessary arrangements. Be at the ferry promptly at eight o’clock p.m. I will contact you again soon through Dax.”

For a moment, I stood frozen, rereading the words again and again with no understanding. Then, with shaking hands, I counted the money. My mind raced feverishly at these new instructions and fear for why it was so urgent I go home so abruptly began to make my stomach turn and my pulse race erratically.
My first instinct was to race to Mango and ask him what this meant, but something in me knew he would not tell me or that perhaps he didn’t entirely know the exact reason but that it was still urgent. Sighing, I packed a small bag, putting the money inside and carrying it downstairs.
I was just thinking about how I needed to tell Agathe what I was doing and where I was going when someone knocked on the door. The last thing I wanted to do was to open it and feign happiness to a guest. But decorum insisted I open the door and be pleasant. No matter what I was going through, Agathe would be very dismayed if I let my manners slip.
When I saw who it was, my eyes widened like saucers and the smile on my face was genuine. Quickly, I urged our guest to follow me to the sunroom.
“Agathe! Agathe, you have company,” I said breathlessly.
“Good heavens, girl, then bring them in quickly. I have a lot to do before the council meeting!”
Slowly, I stepped aside so she could see who was behind me.
“Hello, Agathe,” Nicholas Wyatt said. He’d removed his hat and had a hopeful look in his eyes.
Now Agathe’s eyes were huge. “Nicholas!” she gasped. “W-whatever brings you here?”
“Blue invited me to tea. But I see you’ve already had your tea.”
I stood by, unable or unwilling to move. This was better than any movie! For the first time since I’d known her, Agathe was nearly speechless, her jaw gaping and her hands reaching for that handkerchief she would fold and refold twenty times out of anxiety. I looked from one to the other, filled with excitement and anticipation. These people didn’t know it, but the only thing I was missing was the buttery popcorn.
“I’ll – I’ll tell Alice to bring us some,” she fumbled. But she didn’t move to go tell Alice anything. If I’d been thinking straight and not been so caught up in the moment, perhaps I would have gone to tell Alice.
“You look just the same, Agathe. As beautiful as ever.”
She blushed prettily and for a brief moment, I saw the young girl who had been full of hope at the prospect of her future.
“You look much the same, too, Nicholas,” she murmured, the flush still there, giving her face a more youthful and lovely glow.
“I’ve a sight less hair,” he joked.
“You’re still the same, though, I can tell,” she said, still unmoving.
With tears moistening his eyes, he apparently decided in that moment to let it all out. “Neither of us married and after all this time, it’s you I always thought of and wanted.”
Not expecting him to come out and say all of that, I suddenly sucked in too much air and went into a coughing fit.
“Oh, excuse me,” I said between hacks.
But it was as if neither of them even noticed. Nicholas strode across the room and grasped her hands in the most earnest of ways. To my astonishment, she let him and even smiled as a stray tear rolled down her cheek.
“Can’t we start again and pretend we were never apart?”
“Oh, Nicholas – ” she began.
But before she could finish her sentence, he pulled her to him and kissed her. At first, she seemed startled.
After a few seconds, though, she all but melted into him, putting her arms around him.
Wiping tears from my face that I hadn’t even realized I’d shed, I sneaked out of the room to give them their privacy. As I came forward in the room, I noticed my bag sitting near the front door.
Things were looking up here, but the uncertainty of how things were at home had me feeling nauseated. Thinking of my father and wanting to find out what was happening with him, wanting to see him more than anything in the world, I found Matthieu and told him where I was going.
He seemed pleased and told me he hoped I’d be able to come back some day soon. Then he took me to the ferry and even rode with me across the water to the mainland. All the way there, he was a calming presence, gently reassuring me. I was glad to have a friend with me on this first part of the trip and I was also pleased he wasn’t doing any of the things so many do in bad situations… you know, saying things like, “Everything will be okay.” It wasn’t something I wanted to hear just now.
When we got to the mainland, there was a taxi waiting for me. Quickly, I thanked Matt, assured him I’d be fine and got into the car. As it pulled away, a light rain began to fall, the drops drizzling down the window in crisscrossed patterns that blurred Matthieu’s face.
Suddenly, the future seemed as blurry as my window. I hadn’t any idea what was in store or what had been going on with my family. But I was soon to find out.

Okay, so Matthieu indeed seems nice, but I can’t just get enough of Dax. They are all falling for Blue and it must be such a weird feeling to know that this many boys are attracted to you, I know it’d be strange to me and I think it’s to Blue, too. I’m glad she isn’t yet rushing into any relationship.
The thing with Agathe and Nicholas was just so cute and Blue’s coughing so awkward, lol. There is a lot of coughing in this chapter, is she ill or something?
Another note from Mango. Urgent leave. And again, you get us all waiting, I really can’t wait to find out what’s up with Leo and Leela and others! Do I have to worry? Oh my, Kymber, I don’t even know what to say, your ideas are always interesting.
Happy Earth Day to you!

RosemaryMarie April 22, 2017 - 10:34 am

Thank you so much, Jowita. You know, I’m glad you like my ideas even though they drive you crazy! haha As for what’s up with the Capra family, you will definitely find out in the next chapter because Blue does indeed go home.
Blue was coughing a lot in game, I tell ya’. I think I need to get her Simmunity because she has terrible allergies, it seems. In the story, though, she is not sick. 🙂
Matthieu does seem nice and I like in game how he is so attracted to her but isn’t pushy. It’s really helped me to flesh out his character more. Still, you are so right that it’s good Blue hasn’t rushed into anything. She has time for that later. Right now, she needs to go home and work on those relationships. 🙂

loladiamond01 April 22, 2017 - 12:23 pm

You’re right and I’m glad she’s going home. I wish some better health for Blue, haha. I love your ideas always 🙂

RosemaryMarie April 22, 2017 - 12:34 pm

I’m so glad to hear it! haha I’ve never taken a route like this before, so we’ll soon see how it turns out! lol

audreyfld April 22, 2017 - 10:41 am

Oh my! Lots going on here. 😮 I can see her falling easily for Matthieu and breaking Dax’s heart. If something happens to her Dad, I wonder who will be the one she goes to for comfort. That may be telling. Curious as to what is happening with him. Sadly, with all the foreshadowing, I think he’s dying. 😥
So happy she was a successful matchmaker! ❤ It’s good to see Agathe happy.

RosemaryMarie April 22, 2017 - 10:49 am

Thank you so much, Audrey 🙂 I loved seeing Agathe happy, too. It just didn’t make sense for her to continue with her misguided burden when Dax is doing so well now.
I could see her falling for Matthieu, too. It’s difficult to say who she will end up with, but I have played ahead a little bit. 😀 😀
As for Leo and the Capra clan, next week, you will find out all about that. <3

cathytea April 22, 2017 - 11:40 am

Happy Earth Day ! That was a beautiful chapter !

RosemaryMarie April 22, 2017 - 11:44 am

Thank you so much, Cathy! Happy Earth Day! <3

Marjorie F Watts April 22, 2017 - 1:22 pm

NOOOOO…….!!!!!! I love your story, but I hate waiting!! Wow, now I am afraid for Leo, or maybe Leela is pregnant?? And now that Blue is leaving, both Dax and Matthieu are left high and dry (she didn’t even get to say goodbye to Dax!). On the bright side, Agathe and Nicholas are finally together, and I am really proud of how Blue pulled that together! So many questions, and so many days to wait…… =(

RosemaryMarie April 22, 2017 - 1:50 pm

Thank you, Marj! 🙂 I really am cruel, aren’t I? lol I’m sorry to make you wait. If only I could write faster and have everything out at once, then you could binge when you want to.
Those are good questions about Leela and Leo. You will definitely know what’s going on in the next chapter.
I, too, thought it was a bummer that she didn’t get to tell Dax goodbye. She had to leave so quickly, it just wasn’t possible.
Agathe and Nicholas definitely were a bright side for me, too. 🙂

lilsapphire April 22, 2017 - 2:16 pm

OH poor Blue. What could be so urgent that she must get home ASAP? I hope she doesn’t find her father passed away when she gets there. He did sound pretty sickly the last time they spoke.
Matt is such a good friend to Blue. I think Blue might be starting to fall in love with him.

RosemaryMarie April 22, 2017 - 2:29 pm

Thank you, Lil. 🙂 Do you think so? I know in game, they had the same little hearts she had with Dax and Elliott. lol
I hope when Blue gets home, she doesn’t find things that badly off, but with me as a writer, you just never know. :O

raymondsanti April 22, 2017 - 2:37 pm

Agathe and Nicholas working out was so wonderful! I hope they’ll both be happier now 🙂 And Matt is so sweet…. so so sweet… Please tell me nothing horrible happened at Blue’s home :0 Or that nothing horrible will happen at the farm while she’s away

RosemaryMarie April 22, 2017 - 2:43 pm

Thank you, Raymond 🙂
I really liked that Nicholas and Agathe worked out, too. I think they will be very happy.
Ummm….. Nothing horrible happened at Blue’s home. Unless it did. Ummmm…. Nothing horrible will happen at the farm while she’s away. Unless it does. Just remember, there is always a silver lining. 😀 (Unless there isn’t…. Oh dear. I’d better stop now.) LOL 😀

Violincat April 22, 2017 - 4:49 pm

Blue makes a good matchmaker! And it’s nice that she is finding the confidence to determine how she wants to live her life.

RosemaryMarie April 22, 2017 - 8:25 pm

Thank you so much, Violincat 🙂 I thought she did pretty well, too! haha She does seem to be growing and coming into her own more.

sulsulsimlit April 22, 2017 - 11:48 pm

I’m glad that something happy came out of this chapter with Nicholas and Agathe! I was worried that everything would be left to suspense 😛 I can’t wait to find out what’s going on with Blue’s father – what a cliffhanger! I’m also looking forward to seeing how her relationships develop with her two boys. She seems to have puppy crushes on Dax and Matthieu both; it could go either way. I hope its Matthieu for now, though; Dax has an awful lot of dark in him – it’ll be a long time before he’s ready to settle down with a family. Blue and Matthieu, though, both seem ready for that now or in the near future. I guess we’ll see!

RosemaryMarie April 23, 2017 - 7:56 am

Thank you so much 🙂 Nicholas and Agathe are just so cute together. haha I really love them in game.
It is a cliffhanger, isn’t it? lol But you will know in the next chapter what is going on with Leo and the rest of the family. 😀
I totally agree with what you say about Blue in relation to Dax and Matthieu. And I can definitely see why you think Matthieu would be the better match. Dax really does have a lot of baggage to work through.
Thank you again. 🙂

socallucyfan April 23, 2017 - 3:50 am

I ship Agathe and Nicholas so much. They are both so meant for each other. And I don’t think Alice will be too mad at Blue for interfering.
I don’t know if I want to read the next chapter or not. With all the hints you keep dropping I don’t want to see happen what I think may happen. I don’t know if i can take it or not.

RosemaryMarie April 23, 2017 - 8:00 am

Thank you so much, socallucyfan. 🙂
Oh man, I really ship Agathe and Nicholas, too. haha As for Alice, I think she’ll be fine; she was mainly worried Blue would make a mess of things, I think. lol And since Blue didn’t, well, I imagine Alice will be relieved.
I know what you mean about the next chapter. It may be a bit difficult, I won’t lie. But, there is always a silver lining, so hang in there. 🙂 <3

socallucyfan April 23, 2017 - 9:26 pm

The next chapter will most likely break by heart, but I have been a huge fan of you and you writing for a long time now. I will keep looking forward to your chapters for as long as you continue them. I will just have to focus on that silver lining.
SIDE NOTE: did anyone else sing the song after reading the chapter’s title? Or am I the only crazy one?!

RosemaryMarie April 24, 2017 - 10:14 am

Hahaha! I’ll admit, the song has been stuck in my head since I wrote the title for the chapter. 😀
Thank you so much for your kind words, I really appreciate it. <3

socallucyfan April 24, 2017 - 12:50 pm

Good to know I am not the only crazy one here. LOL 🙂

RosemaryMarie April 24, 2017 - 3:14 pm

LOL! No, definitely not. 😀

loladiamond01 April 23, 2017 - 5:02 am

Oh my, I just thought about Memphis, Keniesha and Liev. What if someone just died? Gosh, I love these characters so much, but they are really old.

RosemaryMarie April 23, 2017 - 8:02 am

Yes, they really are. They were elders at Leo’s wedding to Leela. And Liev was an elder at Blue’s birthday to teen, which was long before Leo’s wedding.
I love the characters, too, so I know what you mean. <3

lisabeesims April 23, 2017 - 5:34 am

WOW Nicolas moved quickly <3 That was wonderful. I too man not looking forward to the next one … eek!

RosemaryMarie April 23, 2017 - 8:04 am

Thank you so much, Lisa. 🙂 Nicholas did move quickly, but in sim time, you don’t have forever to wait. hahaha 😛 <3
Next week… well, I know what you mean. Hopefully, though, things will turn out for the best in the long run. 🙂

lisabeesims April 23, 2017 - 1:06 pm

Technically he moved quickly after he move very very slowly but I do know what you mean about needing to get things done in the story

RosemaryMarie April 23, 2017 - 1:31 pm

LOL! Yes, you are right. 😀

fluffymao April 27, 2017 - 11:42 pm

Yup, I like Mattieu. He’s quite the down-to-earth gentleman.
Hopefully, nothing to horrible is going on back home. But there’s not much hope there. 🙁

RosemaryMarie April 28, 2017 - 7:36 am

Thank you, fluffymao 🙂 Matthieu definitely has his strong points, I think. As for back home, I wish I could say. It’s so hard for me to keep secrets.

dandylion240 May 7, 2017 - 6:19 pm

I don’t know whose team I want to be on. I like both Dax and Matt so much! I have a feeling Matt may have bought that farm with Blue in mind. He might just bide his time until he’s made improvements to it before asking her though.
I’m glad that Blues little matchmaking scheme worked out so well. At least so far it has. I hope it works out. Agathe deserves some happiness.
I thing Blue needs to get home but how does Mango know? If he knows does that mean he can help? I wonder….

RosemaryMarie May 7, 2017 - 9:09 pm

Thank you, dandylion! 🙂 I know what you mean about both Dax and Matt. I’ve played ahead some now so I know which way it’s going now, but for a while I was really uncertain. 🙂
I agree that Agathe deserves some happiness. I didn’t see a point, really, in dragging that storyline out since sim time goes by so quickly. 🙂
Those are really good questions about Mango. And you will have answers very, very soon. 🙂

sempreviva August 18, 2017 - 2:09 pm

Oh no, the letter seems very serious! I hope Leo isn’t dying..! 🙁
Agathe and Nicholas finding their love again was so lovely, and Blue having helped made all this even more special! She’s Blue Cupid now! <3

RosemaryMarie August 18, 2017 - 6:53 pm

Thank you! 🙂 I love that name, btw: Blue Cupid! How sweet and fitting! lol <3

MM Simmerific August 27, 2017 - 11:45 pm

I find that I really like it when Blue meddles. She’s incorrigible. It’s like she doesn’t really take no for an answer and it’s shaking things up at St. Cyr. Good on Agathe. I’m happy for her.
Meanwhile, my stomach is in knots wondering what’s going to happen when Blue finally goes home. I’ve been waiting for this.
Again, I find myself sucked in by this!

RosemaryMarie August 28, 2017 - 9:48 am

Thank you! I like meddling Blue, too! haha
I’m so glad and fortunate that you are sucked into the story! lol I hope it does not disappoint. 🙂

Jes2G September 5, 2017 - 1:07 pm

Yaaaay! She’s going home! And yay for rekindled love! I loved when she said all that was missing was the popcorn lol.

RosemaryMarie September 6, 2017 - 11:28 am

Hahaha Thank you 😀 It felt like one of those moments where popcorn was needed.

Jes2G September 6, 2017 - 2:32 pm


Jes2G September 6, 2017 - 2:33 pm

I thought for sure Agathe was going to recoil and be mad at Blue, but I’m glad it worked out.

RosemaryMarie September 6, 2017 - 2:40 pm

It definitely could have gone that way but I have to fit everything that’s going to happen in to 30 chapters, which, I guess, sounds like a lot, but not long enough for me sometimes. 😛

Jes2G September 6, 2017 - 2:58 pm

Of course! I saw your note in the sidebar about the 30 chapters for the first time, and I was like wow…she’s gotta really wrap things up in these gens! Maybe I should try something similar in my next legacy to avoid epic generations like my gen 8. Phew!

RosemaryMarie September 7, 2017 - 11:08 am

LOL Well, when I started Gen 1, I was like, how many chapters should I do? And I have CDO (that’s OCD but in alphabetical order, like it should be!), so I knew once I chose a number, I would never deviate. And I thought, “Wow, 30 is pretty long!” Little did I know. 😛

Jes2G September 7, 2017 - 11:32 am

CDO! I love it lol. Yeah…30 chapters isn’t long at all anymore!

Jes2G September 6, 2017 - 2:59 pm

Oh! Another thing I remember thinking was how awesome it was to see Agathe sorta kinda get her youth back from being in love. She looks great!

RosemaryMarie September 7, 2017 - 11:09 am

Thank you! I loved that, too! And I didn’t change her features at all, just her makeup. I wanted her to look really severe in the beginning and then see her transform later because of Blue’s meddling. lol

Jes2G September 7, 2017 - 11:33 am

Very nice.

How wonderful that Blue was able to bring Agathe and Nicolas back together!
It’s nice that Blue can consider the happiness of others these days. One step forward for attitude rehab!

As much as I like how Dax looks, I see now that he is still too needy to be Mr. Right for Blue.
She lacks the stability and maturity yet to support and nurture them both.

I’m sorry but Elliott’s thing for the hotel clerk still cracks me up. He must have a thing for bad girls, too.
Can’t wait to see if she conforms and wears the local garb plus head kerchief. 😀

Thank you! 🙂 Blue is really responding to attitude rehab, isn’t she? LOL She still has some growing to do, but at least she is showing promise.

I know a lot of people really shipped Blue and Dax, but it’s true that she wouldn’t have had the ability to nurture them both. Well said.

Elliot and Audrey-Ann were killing me. hahaha Maybe you’re right and he had a thing for bad girls! lol
