    It's probably some custom content thing.

    Yes, it's a mod called "Lekku for Everyone". I found it by googling "Sims 4 lekku mod". There are other mods out there for Sims 2 and 3, too. I've found Togruta montrals, too. :D

    ... when you're so excited about your new fic project that you set out making a complete map of Jedha city across the ages. *bangs head against wall*

    Hey, I made a detailed map of a city that only exists in my fanon.

    How did you ever start actually writing the fic? Because the problem is that making that map is going to take forever!

    Gamiel Unless I'm very much mistaken, divapilot's post about Mehr has already been up for a while, although without a map. As for mine, you'll have to wait a bit longer – I want to post the story first so that I don't give away the denouement, but I'm taking notes as I work (and the way things are going, it's likely to be more of a fanon encyclopaedia than a post!)

    When you're seriously contemplating trying to make a map of an entire planet that you made up.

    And you're still struggling to come up with city/town names for said planet.

    I suggest making references to other peoples works. Many of my fanon planets and organisations get their name from f.ex. H.P. Lovecraft and Barbarians of Lemurai

    I need to derail this thread for a moment and mention that I highly recommend "the Atlas of Middle-earth" book for any map-making because it makes any kind of map-mapping so much easier to make, even for SW.

    When you finish watching the first and so far only season of a new show that ends on a cliffhanger and when you go to see what fanfic has been written you find none, so you decide to write your own.

    Assuming the muse -who has been very fickle and wants to start quite a few things but can't finish anything- decides to cooperate.

    SQUEEEEEEE!

    You know you're a fanfic writer when you read other terrific fics and think -- I gotta streamline that into my stuff, because it's canon LOL And half the time it involves their original characters. [face_love] [face_love]

    You try to start a story for five weeks, and cannot type Word One, then out of the blue, thinking about it from the point of view of your two favourite OCs, and you have almost four pages typed in two days.

    ...when you write one story, get 2/3rds finished with it, then write up two spinoff stories hinted at in your main fic because you like that idea and want to flesh them out

    ...when you pick two random characters and start writing a scene that ships them together, even when they've either never interacted before or flat-out hate each other and you wind up turning it into a thousand-word snip by accident

    ...when the same thing happens to you as to the character you're currently writing about in the chapter you're currently writing (namely coming down sick right before something Big and Important that you have to do In Front of a Lot of People). It couldn't have coincided better if I had planned it! :p

    I think this aaaaall the time... of course, sometimes I read some profic and think, "Seriously? They're getting paid for that?"
