    @enkeli63 - Yay! I'm no longer a party crasher! Thank you! (And the link works great, thanks for asking!)

    @CathyTea, I never thought of you as a party crasher :p That's hilarious!

    @enkeli63 I have read all of your Uncertainty Principle story. I am beyond hooked. I love it so so so much. Super creative. All of the characters are super mysterious. Hands-down one of my favorite reads.

    @aroseinbloom, WOW, thanks! I'm really enjoying your story too, although I just git started with it. I'm just getting acquainted with your sims, but I absolutely loved how you started the story!!

    I'm glad you don't mind the mysteriousness of it. I was worried at first that it could be "too dark" or people might not like it because it doesn't have a "main character," or it would be too weird :p As soon as I learned that Sims 4 was going with the "Alternate Timeline" concept, I was inspired! I've always been fascinated with time and quantum physics, so my story is really inspired by that other passion of mine B)

    I have a lot more written, so take your time! It's not going anywhere. There are some picture issues in Gen 3 that I keep meaning to fix, but never do.

    Maybe I'm a little dark (gloomy?) myself, but I really like the mystery you've created. I think you give just enough away that I'm not completely lost, but still hold back enough that I keep wanting to learn more. That being said, I read it all at one time. Perhaps reading one chapter at a time, especially in the beginning, would be more frustrating. Still...you leave a lot to still be learned!

    That's great that you get to mix in another passion of yours. It truly makes for an interesting story.

    @aroseinbloom I just want to thank you for mentioning familyecho. It's a nice tool that I've now used to create my own basic family tree for my story :)

    This sounds like a resource I should add to the front page of the thread? I'd love to learn more about it! I can't find the original post where @aroseinbloom told you about it though. So hopefully one of you can fill me in on more details!

    Pacing is tough when you need to share back story but you also need to keep things moving forward! I really appreciate your feedback so much though, because those are things I think about a lot. I've never written a sim story like this one before.

    It's a great source! It's what I use to put together my family tree, which you can find on my blog if you want to see how it looks. You're able to add names, spouses, children, etc to it. To 'spice it up' I copy it and put it in Paint so that I can label heirs and deaths. I think it would definitely be helpful to people who are like me and want to keep an updated family tree around.

    @aroseinbloom on your family tree how did you shrink the pictures down without messing up the quality? I tried adding pictures to mine but the second I reduced their size the quality got messed up.

    Here is the image of my tree so you can see what I'm talking about.

    @Celiria Are you adding the photo separate from the Family Echo site?

    If so, go on the Family Echo website and click on the name-- there should be an option under their name to add a photo. Upload the photo there and, at least for me, it does all of the work!

    Let me know!

    I added them separately because adding photos in family echo requires registration which I didn't want to deal with. Oh well, it doesn't look terrible so I'll probably just leave it as is.

    edit: I ended up finding a tool online that let me resize them without losing quality so it's good now :)

    Good thing he's not married to Bianca in your game. She'd come over there and "handle" Trinity LOL.
    When GNC gets home he's gonna have a lot of explaining to do.
    But I did notice and kept in mind that his aspiration is to have one soulmate which he already acquired.

    His story comes up on Thursday and I think it is the funniest of them all.

    So...this is awkward, but I don't really know why. My story has been in progress for a reeeeally long time, but I'm the new kid on the block on this thread lol. If anyone keeps up with the Pruetts, I just posted a new chapter! http://pruettlegacy.wordpress.com/2014/12/01/chapter-72-double-trouble/

    And where did that guy get all those tools? I've never seen that before! Oh, Mike is so cute! But, oh. ok.

    Hey, I love the expression on Anthony's face in the final photo! (Two-piece? I did read an article once about what bikinis do to men's thinking!)

    Guy with tools=I have no idea where he came from. But he left as quickly as he arrived. Mike, too. Well, I know where to find him should I ever want him again. But...again. Sitting talking. Gone!

    Heh! It's the perfect expression. I'm so glad he made it and I got a picture of it. Just you wait...you'll fall in love with Anthony. (I hope)

    For you Skinner Saga followers, there were some broken pictures at the beginning of generation 3...I went in and fixed them for you all (and for my sanity). Feel free to go back and check them out if you want to see what you were missing! Thanks for being awesome.

    I sort of have a crush on him already. It's that way he looks at Peyton. You know, I've had real troubles getting some of my Sims to meet that someone special, too. Goofballs are picky, I think! (They need someone who can handle their humor!) And my self-assured, loner Acacia nearly drove me to distraction while we were looking for Kyler!
