    Question for the Day:

    What's a funny Grim story or screenshot that you have?

    Two questions to answer!

    When is the first time you cried at losing a Sim?
    I have felt very sad losing Sims before, but the first time I think I truly shed tears was for Melanie, and then for Lucas. I think it was made even worse by the fact that, since they were dying for my story, I had to MAKE them die. It was a conscious decision on my part, not just something the game did because their life bars were full. It made me feel very guilty and very upset. They were both very special to me!

    What's a funny Grim story or screenshot that you have?
    Ooh, I have a funny one here haha. Except I don't think it REALLY counts, because it's not a screenshot of the real game-controlled Grimmy, but the Grimmy I had shift+clicked to add to my family and control for D2D (though, in theory, the same thing could have happened with a Grimmy that wasn't in my household, since it was autonomous)

    But either way, I had installed a romantic pose that I used for some Lucas and Mel screenshots, and the pose replaced the "Friendly Hug" interaction. Well, one day, Lucas comes home from work and autonomously decides to greet Grimmy (with whom he was now friends, thanks to all their interactions) with a hug...

    So of course I died of laughter and took a screenshot :lol:

    I don't think I have the screenshot anymore, but I had one of Grimmy being scared by little Rose Sager when Claire drowned. And then he was flirty after that and doing the flirty animations. It was soooo weird.

    @CathyTea It's fine to share my stories :)
    What's a funny Grim story or screenshot that you have?
    This is kind of related to my November short story, so I'll put it in a spoiler tag:
    One time I had a sim who needed to do romantic interactions for her career, and her previous love interest had died, so I decided to invite over one of the gym trainers that she had a high relationship with. She didn't accept our flirts, so I had my sim go do something else when the gym trainer dies while dancing (no wonder why she wasn't accepting the flirts! She didn't want us to get heartbroken!). Grim stuck around for a bit afterwords, so I decided to let him help her "son" (this is where it gets related to my short story) with his homework. Then they started telling jokes, and I was really surprised that a sim could get along with Grim so well. That was where I got the inspiration for the short story (this woman wasn't actually supposed to be able to have kids, but she needed to obtain a child somehow).

    So fun! It seems like magic always creeps through the seams into your games! :)

    I never let my sims die. That is, until I found this place and started a legacy. There is a thread somewhere here were I wondered if my founder's spouse was glitched because it took him a very, very, VERY long time to die after I got the message that he needed to get his act together. He got his wife pregnant the day before he received the message and got to see that child age into a teen. I was exasperated. I wanted him to die already and get it over with. And then when he died, I got all choked up about it. Felt pretty silly about it. Glad I'm not alone.

    Legacies really put us through it, don't they?

    Did the spouse have the long-lived trait, the reward from completing body builder aspiration? That can cause them to live for three Sim weeks or more with the sparkly life bar.

    Last night in my game, Grim hung out to play cards with the birthday girl:

    Of course, they became friends!

    Question: Have your Sims become friends with Grim? Share your stories! :)

    Rose and Grim were best friends. After Claire died, Grim stayed for a really long time just talking and telling jokes with Rose.

    Ilya(my legacy founder) is in the science career and one of her tasks was to make a Serum that causes temporary friendship with Grim. When she drank it, it summoned him and now they're really friends.

    He didn't have the long-lived trait, I don't think. And he only had a fitness level of 4. But he was pretty buff.


    Also: I never make friends with Grim. He hangs out at the lounge all the time and I'm afraid of him. I won't let my sims interact with him because I'm afraid he might like them too much and decide to carry them away.

    Cade Lasalle's children are growing up, and older than him. Being the alien's chosen to breed, he has to stay young as his family spans the generations. As of yet, Grim hasn't come but for a treasured spouse. But he will, soon. :(

    My gen 2 heir, Acacia, flirted with Grim a lot--and he flirted back with her--after she pleaded for her mom's life. I always figured that was why she had a tough time finding romance. She did have a really good relationship with Kyler, whom she married, but it always seemed that her first love was Grim. After she became a ghost, her ghost never once came back to the lot!

    Demetri became good friends with Grim, and that's why he showed up at Leliana's birthday party since Demetri threw it! (At least, that's what I'm assuming.)

    Or maybe he just wanted a dip?

    Oh! I've got a funny screenshot of Grim in the shower! LOL!

    I couldn't believe how awesome this chapter was! It was so incredible that I thought it came from the amazing imagination of SummerFalls, rather than from the game itself!
