Sim of the Month Challenge: January 2014 "Myrna Carae"

Hello Simmers! Ready for a fresh new sim of the month challenge to bring in the new year?

Myrna Carae was a quiet young woman. Having graduated from high school a year ago, she still lived with her parents and had accomplished nothing of note with her life. She was as brilliant as she was lazy.

"When are you going to DO something with your life, you should have a plan!" her mother would urge. When your mother is the famous Mousea Twitchford - Carae, the brave yet terrified astronaut who saved the planet from a rogue comet, it can be difficult to live up to her accomplishments.

"When are you going to find a nice young man to settle down with?" her father would ask. She figured that being shot into space and saving the world would happen before she would do that. She wasn't some militant man-hater, she just found that women, with their attention to details and extra care in personal appearances, were more attractive.

Myrna took after her mother in personality and father in appearance. She was always curious about her father's side of the family. Apparently the Carae family were minor french nobility during the middle ages...but were quickly stripped of their power by other, more famous and politically powerful dynasties and were hardly ever mentioned in the history books. Myrna would often dream about being a French Noble woman, a REAL noble, attending balls and galas wearing beautiful period gowns and being served by a team of skilled ladies in waiting. However, up until this point, this was nothing but a vivid day dream.

"Local Man takes supernatural spouse; adopts Unicorn" read the headline on the local news website that Myrna checked each day. Normally, Myrna would dismiss such a headline as hogwash, but not in this case. She knew this man. He was a fellow player in her weekly Dungeons & Dragons group named Fred Fernberger. He had unsuccessfully tried to ask her out on a date, not knowing she was a lesbian. She was not his first romantic rejection and after she let him down as gently as she could, he declared that he was done with the human race and that his soul mate was something other than human! At the time she thought him to be insane. She now realized he was merely ambitious.

Seeing her friend accomplish his seemingly impossible goal as well as knowing her mother accomplished something equally improbable, Myrna finally gained the motivation to pursue her own highly improbable dream.

"What if," she wondered to herself, "The Carae family actually held onto power in the middle ages. What if THEY played host to the great french monarchs and rulers of the middle ages?" If she could change the past...her dream of being French nobility, ACTUAL french nobility, could come true in the present. "Time to learn about French politics...and what happened to the Carae family." she said to herself.

She already spoke French, but she knew that learning how to act and dress like a beautiful middle ages French noble, and maneuver in medieval politics would be key to changing the past. Well that, and actually figuring out how to get back to the middle ages. Like she did with most things in life, she decided that she'd sort those details out as she went along.

Packing her bags and striking out on her own, Myrna must now figure out how to accomplish her goal...and possibly find someone who might help her along the way.
