    So I made something special. I got the idea when I made the cover for @Sterretjeee 's Farrahs book "The Butterfly Effect". It is a magazine with some of the most known sim made books, films and games. It is called We love!

    The articles have MAJOR SPOILERS of @Sterretjeee Grace - A build Newcrest story, @pammiechick Day and Knight, @CitizenErased14 Dust to Dust and Ashes to Ashes, @Maladi777 Heffner Legacy
    It contains also a reference to @JoieWilder Thoreau legacy but this one is not spoiling because nearly everything in this article is just fictitious
    of me.

    If you are one of the mentioned above, please feel free to post the articles with your story / the story of your sims on your thread. If you want to do that please link to this comment if anyone is interested in reading the full version :)

    So here we go :)
    I will post the cover normal and the rest in spoilers depending on what you want to read you can take a look at the different ones. And now have fun reading :blush:

    The only other sim made book I know is The adventures of Captain Duckhorse but because I know nothing about that except the author I didn't write something about it.
    I don't know if there are more sims made films, books or other stuff. If so let me know ;)

    @Marialein OMG! This is absolutely awesome! It must have taken up a lot of time to do this, but it's beautiful! I like every bit of it. And all the book covers... I want all those books as ccs, especially Butterfly effect. I can try to do it as I did with the Love & Ruin series if you link bigger pictures.
  • pammiechickpammiechick Posts: 8,694 Member
    Wow. I'm amazed by this! How cool! I want all the books, too! Let me know if there are links!

    Thank you for including Alex's story. He feels humbled by being in with all these famous books. (And a game!) I will link it, too. <3

    We aren't accepting new members right now. @Jellysimwich isn't active so we could probably accept a new one but we would prefer someone whose story most of us have been already following to make things easier. It is hard to keep up with stories of 10 members as it is. A completely new story sounds overwhelming to those of us who are too busy with their everyday life.

    It wouldn't be fair to you if we couldn't discuss your story and plot and characters for the lack of time to read it at all.
    Have you checked this thread which circles are looking for new members? I really hate refusing anyone who wants to join, but ten members of which some actively write multiple stories is plenty of reading. I'm really sorry. :(

    I just took this picture and had to share it with you. However, you'll have to wait to learn what Tony is telling Marialein, because next coming up will be Spotty's date. But don't worry, you'll see glimpses of Tony anyway.

    Almost forgot this is the week to discuss cursed beauty YAY!!

    I do apologize for the absence of updates, however, we can discuss things so far.

    1. For those of you that have followed the original CB story and now are caught up to the prequel, I am wondering if the supernatural aspects of the story are TOO much.
    2. Piggy backing off of the last question, was the ‘Lore’ of this story too complicated? How would you have simplified it?
    3. I do love me some serious twists and turns in these stories, what has been your favorite twist thus far and why?
    4. Do you have any speculations on where this story is going?
    5. Any favorite CB characters so far? Any you just can’t read yet and would like to know more of?
    6. The ‘teenification’ of the townies was a huge risk, do you think I was able to pull it off and make them believable?
    7. Any recommendations or questions you would like to share?

    Nah, they're written in a believable way and you explain everything so it makes sense. It's awesome! Everything fits together well, and I can totally see this happening in RL.



    2. Piggy backing off of the last question, was the ‘Lore’ of this story too complicated? How would you have simplified it?


    No. It was fine. I don't think you could simplify it (I definitely couldn't) and still maintain that same amount of realism that it brings. Also, I love fantasy so lots of 'lore' is welcomed!



    3. I do love me some serious twists and turns in these stories, what has been your favorite twist thus far and why?


    Err... Maime being Tati's mother. Did not see that coming!


    4. Do you have any speculations on where this story is going?

    Yes, Tati is going to get with what's-his-face (sorry I've forgotten his name) and then they're going to have a baby boy XD


    5. Any favorite CB characters so far? Any you just can’t read yet and would like to know more of?

    Bella! She's just brilliant! So funny, great female supporting character, well written.


    6. The ‘teenification’ of the townies was a huge risk, do you think I was able to pull it off and make them believable?

    Oh, definitely. It's fascinating seeing what life was like for them when they were younger.


    7. Any recommendations or questions you would like to share?


    Can we have dragons? Pweeeeeeeeeease?
    Naw, just kidding. I would like to see some Bella and Mortimer moments, though.

    Hi everyone, I saw this:
    video in my subscription box today and I thought we could have a go, by using our current stories. Since we upload in serial, I think they count. I'm using both The Bachelorette and Fifteen.

    Rules:

    1) Answer the questions using characters from your current WIP.

    2) Do NOT use the same character more than twice.

    3) Provide a brief (seriously folks - BRIEF!) description of your plot before answering the questions.


    The Bachelorette - a relaity TV show in which Amara goes looking for love.
    Fifteen - a fantasy in which, one year after a death that broke both Violet and Rose, strange and magical things start happening to them. This involves new worlds, in which both meet new friends and enemies.

    Also, spoiler alert.


    #1 Which character would get wasted at a holiday party and end up hum.ping the Christmas tree?

    Romeo - he's terrible when it comes to alcohol. It would be totally something that happens.

    #2 Which character deserves to get the cra.p beaten out of ‘em by the Krampus?

    Onyx - he's simply out to cause trouble.

    #3 Which character is the Grinch this year?

    Amara - Christmas will be hard this year considering the fact she's just lost her mother.

    #4 Which character would try to get a little too friendly while sitting on Santa’s lap?

    Atlanta - she's a huge flirt.

    #5 Who would your antagonist most like to tongue beneath the mistletoe?


    I'm going to go with Onyx as the antagonist since we haven't really met anyone who is a villain. He would like to tongue Zannah because she is too gorgeous (and feisty) for a creep like him to not want to. So it's a good thing they're not from the same story.

    #6 Which character would accidentally tip the menorah and light the house on fire?

    Sofia. She's beyond clumsy and knowing her luck, that would be something that would happen to her.

    #7 Which character is most likely to bring magic brownies to a holiday party?


    Violet. She's in a terrible state right now and isn't coping very well. If any of my characters were on drugs it would be her.

    #8 Which character is most likely to ring in the new year naked? And why the hell are they naked in the first place?


    Romeo. Because he got drunk and had sex with something - anything.

    #9 Which character is absolutely kidding themselves by insisting they belong on the nice list?

    Wayne's mother. She's a nightmare.

    #10 Which characters would readers be most shocked to find on the naughty list?


    Atlanta. She can be a bit of a plum, as you will see.

    @lisabee2 @VIRTUALEE @Spottydog714 Thank you!

    Spotty, I absolutely love the idea from the video. It's going to be such fun. I'm onto it!
    edit: this sparked another idea. What about set of questions our characters themselves would answer? :)
