Woooo! 500,000! :dance: I've noticed the number gradually get closer over the past few weeks so to see that I reached it when I logged on just now is quite a pleasant surprise :)

About the same time last year I reached 400,000 and the year before I reached 300,000. So at least it's consistent ;)

I'm sure you've heard this before from me, but I can't thank you guys enough for supporting me all of these years. 500,000 was a milestone I was aiming for and it's a solid one, and I'm very pleased. Thank you so much for reading my stories and helping me achieve a personal goal. Without you guys I most likely would've stopped writing years ago, but you kept me going and motivated me. I don't know how much longer I'll be writing for, but for now, let's enjoy this milestone for a bit. I know I will! :tighthug::highfive:

"We Like To Party!" - The Vengaboys
A few weeks back I said I wouldn't have any more updates on the story, but since I've only posted a few journals since then I thought it was time for a quick update. I wanted to thank you guys for being so patient. It's been difficult getting the time to sit down and actually type out the story. I'm aware that it's been a few months since my last story but this new one's on the way and I really believe it's worth the wait. It's also something you've never seen from me before so it may surprise you ;p

:highfive: It's almost done, hang in there guys! :highfive:
As you guys probably know I'm not much of a gaming person. I usually love playing racing games and such, but that's about it. I don't remember how I found the video (maybe it was featured) but it was about a planetary discovery game called No Man's Sky. Here's a couple videos:

Gameplay trailer from Playstation: [link]

More gameplay: [link]

I'm sure there are more gameplay videos but those are the only two I've seen already. Just from watching those two videos it looks like an insanely awesome game. I'm a curious person and I do like to explore, so this game looks very appealing. It also reminded me of the movie Interstellar, which I really enjoyed. Hey, maybe we could find Pandora's home planet!? :lol:

Anyways, I was just wondering if anyone had anything they'd like to share about this game? It looks like there's a TON of planets so that will be cool to explore and see how different each world is. I don't know how much information about the game is out there but if you have anything you'd like to add or comment, then please share! You guys would know more about this than I would :p

(If this is your first time hearing of the game then how awesomely random is that? Of all people, me, showing you a new video game?) ;)
Hello, all! Here are the results from the poll I did a short time ago. Overall it received 101 votes (as of now, while I write this journal) and I'm very pleased to see that it got to that 100 mark I was hoping for. A few years ago I asked the same question so I wanted to see what everyone's views were now and compare them. I believe I asked it back in 2012, so here are the results:

Which OC Of Mine Is Your Favorite? (2012 poll)
Sabrina 51 votes
Clara 27 votes
Pandora 21 votes
Katrina 14 votes
Kylie 12 votes

Which OC Of Mine Is Your Favorite? (2015 poll)
Sabrina 35
Pandora 21
Clara 20
Kylie 16
Katrina 9

One thing to note is that the 2012 poll had more total votes (I was a member at that time and posted it as a DA poll on here). Since the most recent poll received less votes, I'm not focusing as much on the differences because they're not too far off; between Kylie and Pandora, that's a close range (as opposed to the older poll which is more spaced out). In my opinion second place wasn't definitive just because there's only a one vote difference, so it could've went either way. So really, other than the swap between Kylie and Katrina, it's pretty much the same results from a few years ago, which I find VERY interesting (imagine what the results might be if another five or ten people voted? Other than for Sabrina, the rest of the order could be totally different).

Obviously the total number of votes aren't the same but as far as the order, it's practically identical. One thing that did surprise me was Kylie, as I thought she'd be at least third. Another thing to point out about Kylie is that when I asked the 2012 poll, I believe it was a short time after she was introduced as an OC, and I had a slight expectation she'd be higher up with the few years that have passed. As for first though, I suppose Sabrina really catches a lot of people's attention due to her promiscuous nature ;)

Thanks to all who took the time to vote! It was fun to compare the results to the poll I did a few years ago and even with a few variables, the results pretty much reflected that of the past. That I found quite intriguing, and I'll keep these results in mind while I write. I may look to do more of these polls that'll shape future stories of mine, so keep an eye out for more in the future.

Thanks again! :huggle:
Hello, all! Just a few things to say here!

As I may have mentioned in a previous journal, I've been making progress on the story. I've managed to work on it a little over the past couple of days. It's been frustrating because I haven't posted a story in a while, but rest assured, one is on the way! I don't really want to put a time on it but I would guess within the next couple of weeks (maybe less, maybe a little more). I know I haven't given much detail on what it's about (though I never really do with stories because that's spoiling the surprise) but I will say that it's something a little different than what you normally see from me, with also a little twist to an expansion (in a way). So there's something for you to think about for now, haha ;p That'll be my last update on the story so the next time you hear about it will be when it's officially posted.

Something else I wanted to mention was that I've had a few ideas in mind. I've been thinking about them over the past couple weeks. They aren't anything major, just ideas I've been pondering for a bit. I think I'll wait until I post the story until I start on those ideas, but that's just another thing to keep an eye out for.

* * * *

Lastly, I wanted to give a quick reminder on voting for your favorite OC of mine, which you can vote by following this link --> vote.pollcode.com/15624859 (again, it's totally anonymous and takes, like, five seconds!)

If you've voted then don't worry about it, but if you haven't I'd really appreciate it if you did. You can read my last journal which goes into more detail about why I made that poll --> Poll: Which Character Of Mine Is Your Favorite?

Talk to you all soon! :tighthug:

My name is Janelle, and I am one of the few females that are into expansion. I've written tons of stories ranging from a wide variety of expansions. I'm always thinking up new ideas, and most of my ideas come randomly to me :p But any idea I get I try making into a story; some are better than others. Writing relaxes me and I really enjoy writing about my OC's and I getting into rather "interesting" situations ;p

Aside from that, I am British and for those curious, I DO have the accent ;p I love to stay active whether it's going for afternoon jogs, or just playing sports with friends. I can be competitive but won't be upset if thing's don't go my way. I am very friendly, and I love to help people whenever I can. I'm a very caring person and enjoy cheering people up :huggle:

I'm a fan of your stories, and I've written a few stories myself, so would you mind reading some of my work, perhaps give me some tips/things I can improve on? Thank you for your time!

It was a chill day. We went to the park and then watched a movie together. And thanks, everything's great! :)
