    First off, thanks for making this thread. It's so much easier to find sims stories on the sims2 for some reason. Here we have all of those stories with the premade pictures, or ones that spew "pregnant teen!" all over the page and actually get recommendations. I'm a story writer too, and really only got veiws when my movie was featured, but few recommendations on my stories. I know that my stories are not going to be for everyone, but i feel that they are not getting to the people who would appreciate them.

    It's good to get that out of my system, haha!

    I clicked on your story, and i can tell you really thought it out from the first page. Let's see what you can do with these vampires! :)

    I know what you guys mean. Not only is it frustrating to have your own creations buried under junk, but you have to dig through all the flame stories and such to find the good stuff! I wish they would clean up the site a little.

    I checked out your story, Inner Universe. It looks like you put a lot of effort into it! I want to say that Chapter 2 is the most successful so far, for the shots and the gray story background thing. I'm not sure if it's just on my computer, but in Chapter 2, the white background with the black designs makes the black text a little difficult to read. I think it also takes attention away from the images, whereas in Chapter 2, the viewer's attention is drawn to the pictures instead of the background. Anyway, I hope this helps. :mrgreen:

    If you're looking for a decent non-legacy story, you should check out Solace. It hasn't received many recommendations, particularly my most recent release, Episode 2. I have a website for it, though.

    Here are some links:

    Vera's My Page
    Solace: Episode I
    Solace: Episode II

    Spark Stories
    Episode I : A New Beginning
    Episode II: The First Day

    Let me know what you think! 8)


    I love the story! I read it and hope you continue it!

    Hey kids, i love this post, and am stalking all your stories!

    Unfortunately, i'm not much of a legacy reader. :oops:

    Swishstar, it's so cool that you made a websites to give more info about your stories! It's like you're really connecting with us readers. I'm definetly staying tuned. I'm anticipating the confrontation of the vampires and witches. My favorite character is the sarcasticly wonderful, Raya!

    Vera, I am so curious about Solace! You set it up great, and can go so many places with it. Keep writing it, and i'll keep reading it!

    vamp200080, i read the haunted prolouge and really like it! I must read the rest and see where you're taking this.

    Bean, I'm glad the bully got hers. :) Very mysterious. I'll keep reading.

    To all who have posted on this thread.

    I am just so happy that this thread got the attention it needed. I read all the stories given out...and I just have to say, there are really good writers out in this site after all!

    I enjoyed all of your stories (Legacies are funny, I luff them. And even the ones that were legacies, I enjoyed very, very much.)

    So just a few little shout outs for a few of you that have posted:

    Jake_960: I just love The Burns Legacy.
    Elijah! WHY! D: (I believe that was his name. xD)
    I like where it is going. More more more!! Don't stop!

    Vera: Well, you already got my response. Don't stop writing! It is really good; well done!

    typicalgemini: If you didn't already noticed, I booked marked most of your chapters because I want to read them over, and over, and over. Ahh! Its just so cool ^_^

    Clairezy018: I voted your Legacy as my favorite (Sorry guys, I like all the others as well, but A Rotten Legacy takes the gold for this one.) I am waiting for more, and I can't wait to see what happens with Onion. <3

    TheSeventhSin: I. Love. You.
    XD
    Well, you know what I mean. Thank you very much for your kind words. And yes. Raya happens to be one of my favorites, besides Nabil (o_O You will find out more about him, or if you did read the site xD You Already know who he is.)
    Don't stop reading.

    And Finally:

    I_am_bean: MEEP! Luff luff luff your story =D And yes. I kind of get annoyed when other things bump this thread down. =/ It should be viewed more, and people should read it. . .

    I agree 100%!

    I'm tired of all the pointless movies getting all the views!

    I absolutely hate all those stories and movies with the pre made stuff! They didn't play the game then! :thumbdown:

    I love to read legacys and stories!

    Vera: I love your stories!! Abosolutely wonderful! :thumbup:

    SwishStar: I'm going to look at your's next! :)

    I absolutely loved the Rotten Legacy - Whens the next chapter, I want to see what happens with Onion and Darleen!!

    Solace = love the story, I can't wait to find out whats in the attic!

    Take Me Away = love the Drama in your story! I hope that Stephanie didn't get pregnant from that sleaze ball Steve

    Vera...I am just in love with your story.
    I love the way you did it! And the school, the background. The effects! You need to give me some advice on the effects that you did. Completely dying to read more! If there is anymore.

    If you could tell me how you did those effects, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Also, it gives me sort of a movie/anime/manga feel. Which I love. Chapter 3 will be out tomorrow, by the way. So keep an eye out.

    And I'll fix chapter 1 back ground so it can be easier to read.

    Once again, I just love Solace. I haven't read the other stuff, though. But I will now.

    P.S. Your story is the best read I have seen on this site, when it comes to fantasy.
    The best Legacy has to be "A Rotten Legacy" By Clairezy018

    Are you going to continue Solace?
    Thank you for your comments! =)

    I have been thinking about creating a new post discussing the steps I take along with tips and tricks for story creation. Now that there’s an interest, I’ll try to work on it. The effects are actually fairly simple using Adobe Photoshop.

    I’ll have to check out that legacy and your next chapter!

    I’m definitely going to continue Solace. I only have time to update once a week, though. Eventually, I plan on adding other stories to my site. The World Adventures expansion and the World Creator Tool will open up some interesting possibilities.

    Glad you're enjoying it. I have a lot of back story that I'll slowly reveal, like the history behind her grandma's attic and such. And with the end of the second episode, it really does have so many places I could go with the story. I'm having a lot of fun with it. :mrgreen:

    Sorry about the long post. :shock: This is a great thread! 8) Now I'm behind on my reading...
