  1. (Warning for a long comment, I talk too much...)
    Henlo! I'm the person who posted anon compliments on your Tumblr sorta recently- I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed reading this Legacy, and how impressed I am that you managed to spin a fun challenge into a full-on story full of fleshed-out characters, with a nice mix of fun and drama. Mordecai and Marcel are definitely my favourite heirs- I wanted to hug Mordecai so many times, haha! I also liked what you did with the twins, with one going for a life of crime and one being more lawful. Excellent work on this legacy, this is one of the first bits of SimLit I've actually read all the way through. I decided to make a Blogger and I might actually do a challenge of my own and try and give it a narrative touch. Thanks for being so talented and inspiring me to try something new :)

    1. Thank you so much for coming forward! I appreciate all of your wonderful support, and I'm flattered that you enjoyed my legacy!
      Best of luck with your own Blogger - I'll be sure to follow your work. Have you a Simblr too?
      I would also recommend the Sims Forums and as two very supportive Sim Lit communities.

    2. Sorry, for some reason my reply bugged out earlier -.- Thanks for the suggestions! I do have a Tumblr account but I never use it and forgot the password XD I'm not too keen on it as a platform for myself, even though I follow other people's Tumblrs. :P But the Sims forums is definitely worth a shout! I will try and read some of your other Sims stuff soon, when I have time to. So far I've read the Lee Harker stuff, the Legacy, the Erwin and Lincoln short story and the Close Encounter Academy and I love how well you can write both light-hearted stuff and serious stuff and switch between styles seamlessly.
