Hi everybody and welcome to the thread where you can meet new friends and share your Sim stories and a little bit about yourselves so we can get to know you and help each other with kind words through those difficult times in real life.
Let me start by introducing myself:
My real life name is Janet (Jan Tedfor in my studio is myself) but I go by the the name of Silver which is taken from my username, SilverDaybreak (In memory of my part Arabian mare that I use to ride). I am from Sussex, New Brunswick and live with my wonderful husband and 2 cats Muffy and Buffy. I work for a local call center doing hotel reservations which is a lot of fun most of the time but like any job does get stressful (mentally).
As for my Sim Stories, I am one of those Simmers who has several stories on the go. My first legacy family (The Steel family) will soon be retiring after generation 10 as will my Day family. In this thread I plan to post the links to all of my stories at the beginning and then let you know which one has an update on my blog but will continue to post the pictures to my stories here in the thread. Don't worry about not reading all of them just pick some that you enjoy to follow and then maybe on a cold, snowy winter's day sit back with a hot chocolate or something sit back and read some of my older stories if you like. Each of my generations are like a story in themselves although they follow the main theme of the legacy but also adding new themes along the way.
I know most of you know this already but I like to use Sims from my friends in my stories as well as most of my newer legacy stories involve friends' Sims and/or families. In my main legacies as well if the game does not generate a spouse for my heirs via school prom or other methods I also like to find a Sim from one of your studios to use for a spouse. Someone that fits my storyline as well as a Sim who seems to be forgotten in a studio and has few downloads. This gives new dimensions and genes to my stories as well as gives you an opportunity to have a part in my stories. I hope that no one here minds me using a Sim from their studios for this purpose.
Of course if any of you need Sims for a story or extra townies please feel free to use any that are in my Studio. Just let me know who you are using and please give me updates on their lives even if they are just townies, letting me know that they are alright and settled well into their new town is nice, too. Guess I'm like a mother hen to my Sims as I like to know where they are after they leave my guidance.
That's enough about me for now.
Many thanks to my fellow Simmers and friends, Jazen, Sharona, Fairybird, Fru, Arrowleaf, Dreamerz, Ivory (when she returns to us), Madhatter, Spidergirl, Wickichick, Anon, Faye and any others who join me in making this thread the best place to share stories and make new friends. I will let each of these wonderful people introduce themselves and their wonderful stories.
Please when you post in this thread for the first time, introduce yourselves and comeback frequently as we want to get to know you and not have you just post your story and run which defeats the purpose of a having this a social place to share stories about Sims and yourselves. We will all try to read your stories and leave feedback and if we take awhile to do so please don't worry we will but sometimes real life and playing our own stories takes up time. All of us enjoy receiving feedback on our stories and love giving our thoughts on yours as well.
May we all grow closer to each other and our friendships flourish as we follow in Wicki's footsteps. Here's to many happy times ahead.
