Safekeeping: Ripples in Time

Working for the agency had it perks, at least as far as Alivia was concerned it did. Stellar benefits, great pay and the occasional chance to work from home. All in all it was a sweet opportunity, there were times she often wondered how she had been so lucky. But a quick peek at her accomplishments that had been conviently plastered upon the walls of her modest home put her mind at ease.

All in all life in Oasis Springs seemed to be good, despite the heat of the desert and never ending drought. Things seemed to be going well, at least until the nightmares started. One after another depictions of another life. Sometimes they came in short spurts of what felt like flash backs but these were things she didn't remember doing.

The pieces of the puzzle didn't seem to make sense, nothing was adding up. Was there more to the life she knew? It wasn't until her lunch break at work that things started to come together. Hecter had known Alivia for a few years, he was due to retire soon but the Agency denied him his benefits package. Out of spite he spoke to Alivia, showing her some pictures he'd found of her. The images matched up to the dreams she'd been having.

"That's....Hector what does this all mean exactly?"
"I can't say anymore than you already know Alivia. But I will say this, be careful around here."
"I don't understand...who is this woman?"

Satisfied with what he had done Hector would say nothing more on the matter. Alivia, however, knew that no matter what her life would forever be changed. Hector mysteriously disappeared days later, the Agency has been very hush hush about what happened.

Safekeeping: Prelude

It's not often that someone can say they grew up in the spotlight, and even more rare can they say that they have lived as three different people. Nestled in the quiet town of Oasis Springs lives one such person and her name is Alivia Karnovsky. Or at least it is now.

On the outside Alivia appears to be just a small town girl but due to her parent's occupations she has been in protective custody since she was born. Not even she doesn't know this information. Each time Alivia has been relocated her memories along with everyone else around her are wiped and she is allowed a clean slate.

This most recent change came about when her mother, Agent 054, had a mission go horribly wrong. Not only compromising her life but the life of her unsuspecting daughter. The Agency that employs her parents has been under contract with them since her birth and so long as they stay alive so will Alivia.

And alive is just one way to look at it, as it pertains to the young woman's life. Each move brings about a wipe but none of the challenges presented to an average person who has to pick up their lives and move on. It is unclear if Alivia even houses memories of her parents or if they truly even care for her. Only time will tell....

Let the games begin!

Well it took some time but I am finally going to be restarting the Going Solo Challenge that I fell in love with back in TS3. But this time, after much CC shopping, I will be doing so with TS4. So that means new story, new sims and "new" game! Let the games begin!
