Bonus Stuff #6: AU Vlad and Alice in StrangerVille

It’s been one hell of a week.

I don’t have a chapter to post because ::gestures tiredly at the entire world::

However, what I DO have is some screenshots from Alternate Universe Vlad and Alice who are going through the StrangerVille mystery in my regular save. Honestly, putting on my favorite lofi for Ghosts mix and just playing the game was exactly what I needed this weekend, even more so than writing.

But I am writing.

I mean, I’ve got nothing but time when I’m not working remotely for the next month(s?) so I expect to bang out a ton of chapters.

It’s weird how stories evolve over time. I actually got a chance to sit down and work on a for real outline (cause you know, social distancing) and I’m really excited about where I can go with this story. I’m also a little frustrated because I’m a perfectionist and I wish I would have figured a lot of things about structure and plot sooner (god, so sooner).

But the cat is out of the bag and the milk is spilt and all that.

Anyways, I hope the things I change make it better and more enjoyable to read (I say, trying to sound super casual about this insane side project that I put too much time into). In the meantime, please enjoy AU Vlad and Alice: Adventures in StrangerVille, A Photo Essay (ha).

Oh and wash your hands and be kind to people and stay in your dang houses (if you can).


Possessed Leslie Holland was really coming in hot and Alice is not really here for it.
Oh don’t mind me, I’m just feasting on this mortal’s neck.
Vlad puts his foot in his mouth. A lot.
In this AU, Vlad can play beer pong.
Confession: I was working on their relationship and trying to speed things up with some passionfruit “bubbles.” Of course, they had the opposite effect and they ended screaming at each other.
Serenade me with a concerto while I eat this Eggs Benedict you made me, I don’t mind.
Don’t be suspicious, don’t be suspicious.
In this AU, Vlad is the one with the computer skills.
Gonna go interrogate some military folks. Gonna try to convince Vlad not to drain their life spirits. Right after we finish autonomously making out because apparently, this situation is romantic.
Love is in the air in StrangerVille. TBH this sort of looks like attack tho.
Note the mysterious berries on the shelf. THIS is why the food is such low quality.
Don Lothario, host at some backwoods diner in StrangerVille. My, how the mighty have fallen.
Vlad got pissed at Lily Feng and decided to deprive her needs so she starved to death (as you do). This is hilarious to me for story reasons that will be coming up in Baking By Death.
Vlad was like: can I get some of that sweet plasma? [not pictured: Alice saying “hell no, go fuck yourself.”]
This is not a good look for him.
Perfect couple. Amirite?
Yes, the Secret Lab just after you finished being possessed by spores from the Mother Plant is the perfect place to make out. Cool.

    Oh, the *horror* of spending too much time on an insane side project. I guess it’s our gain. This AU Vlad is scruffy, ain’t he?

    Good luck to you and your loved ones as we try to lower R_0!

      LOL when you mentioned spending so much time that you don’t have on this, I was like: same, same, same. But as it turns out, this is the perfect time to have a weird, time-consuming side hobby that doesn’t require in-person interaction. It helps tamp down the existential dread that fills me because I weirdly have a job that involves educating people about history and science and public health so no amount of social distancing actually lets me forget about lowering R_0! Hooray (I yell, desperately drinking another glass of chardonnay).

      Ugh this version of Vlad has some real Lip from Shameless vibes and I want to be sorry, but I’m not. A lot has been revealed about me with this version of Vlad hahahaha.

      But yes, may you and your loved ones stay safe too!

    Oh my gosh this makes me want to play the Strangerville mystery map šŸ˜€

    These were hilarious screenies.

    I’m guessing Don Lothario heard that a bunch of cray cray chicks were popping up in Strangerville, and he couldn’t refuse trying to bag a few feisty ones.

    God Vlads expressions are absolutely perfect and the captions hilarious šŸ˜€ I needed this laugh.

      Strangerville is weirdly one of my fave worlds. Lol Iā€™m glad this gave you a laugh. As you know, sometimes just taking a break to play the game is good for the heart!

      And sims do be acting crazy. ::cough, cough:: Don.
