Default Chapter 11 - June 1960 - Scene II
Thank you all for your comments. I have the general outline of Melissa's life all planned out in advance, but I don't want to spoil the story for you, Malakaaz. However, I will say that this is a biographical story - it follows Melissa's entire life, from birth until death. And like every human life, hers will be populated with moments of unbridled joy, as well as times of crushing tragedy.

But for now, let's focus on one of those moments of unbridled joy, shall we? Here's the longest update yet. Enjoy! :-)

P.S. I can't foresee this coming up in the story any time soon, so I'll just tell you guys that Melissa was born in 1950, so she's 10 years old now.

Thanks for the comments, guys. I'll be busy this weekend, so this is the last update for the week. I'll probably have the next scene up on Monday.

Also - I've submitted the uncensored, NC-17 rated version of the story to sexysims2.com. I get the feeling that it takes a while for them to approve a new story over there, so I'm not holding my breath. I'll let you guys know when it's up, though.

I've loved the story so far, and I'm wondering, without being to pushy, when will we see more? I can't wait! XD

I've been having a bit of writer's block with this story lately, but I'll have a new chapter posted by the end of the day. I'll be advancing Melissa to her teen years soon, because that's when the story can really take off. Anything else that happens in the story before that would just be fluff.

This should be the last scene of Melissa's childhood years.

Aww, that sucks for Melissa. I really hope she finds someone better than that guy. He's such an asshole!

I didn't mean to give the impression that he's an a-hole; they've been best friends since they were very young, and he's nervous/shy about trying to become more than friends. And, of course, he's afraid of rejection, just as I was at that age. But I suppose my disjointed narrative leaves much room for such interpretation, and I certainly won't discourage you from drawing that conclusion.

Anyway, I just made a major update to the thread (depending on your point of view): I've changed the title of every chapter to reflect the progression of time. Every chapter now includes the month and year during which that chapter takes place. This is based on a rough timeline that I created. Apparently, I've already covered 15 years. Yikes.

I love this story so far. I'm not normally into graphic novels, but the pictures and the stories of this are so good that I'm really enjoying it. I can see you're paying attention to the clothes they're wearing to make the time setting seem authentic, and the effects on the pictures are great. It will be interesting to see how Melissa's life progresses over the years and how it eventually turns out in the end. I can't wait for more.

Thank you for the comments, everyone. Actually, I'm not going TOO far out of my way to make the clothing accurate - I'm just trying to stay close to the time period. And I included the Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" in the 1964 chapter, despite that it wasn't recorded until 1965, so I'm really not splitting hairs. Major historical events will occur at the proper time, though, and will sometimes have a momentous impact on Melissa's life.

Anyway, here's a new chapter. I was really eager to write this one.

This is very well written, and the pictures are beautiful. I wish I could flatter you some more, but I don't have anything else to say..

Keep writing. And taking pictures. I'll be lurking, so..
