Getting Started

Getting Started:
Knowing Where to Holldum

Come see Strangetown in a whole new way as we follow Texas Holldum and the rest of her brood through all the drama and hijinks of what might someday be a 10 generation legacy (we'll take it as far as the drama will let us go).

Since this is the first post listed in the archive, I figured it might be nice to add a link to all the chapters and add-ons (Glossary, outtakes, etc.) for quick and easy navigation. Let me know if any of these don't work. So scroll down for the table of contents and other related Holldum links or read on as I yabber on a bit. =D

When I first created Texas back in Summer 2005, I had intended her to be a placeholder sim in the dorms for my legacy family. But Texas turned out to have a quirky personality of her own that I fell in love with, and when Waylon defied the odds (as well as his personality and aspiration) to woo her, well, I couldn't let these two moulder in the dorms. So with their diplomas in hand, I packed them up and moved them over to Strangetown for their own legacy. Hoo Boy, if I'd only know the sort of stories that would spring up from these two. *grin*

As you read through, you'll notice a change in things starting in Chapter 8. Just after I'd posted chapter 7, the Holldums went on extended hiatus due to a host of reasons (among them simply being unable to run TS2) After a long break, I returned to simming and to writing with new plans, schemes, and motivations for the Holldum clan. I thought about editing and tidying up some of my earlier chapters, but decided to leave them as is for now. So if some of the beginning chapters seem kind of rough or start out with things that aren't really sim-related, well, just keep reading and chalk it up to the learning curve and the evolution of the Holldum storyline. *grin* I like to think that my later chapters are better than my early ones.

Oh, and lest I forget, Frank and Ed Texas and her family thank you for your support.
