White Lies and Half Truths
Prologue: Dear Royce



Hello, I'm Cement. :) Thank you for checking out this topic!

White Lies and Half Truths is primarily based on my gameplay, bad jokes, and weird backstories my brother and I made up.
The story is very game-driven, with only plot elements added in the story in order for my Sims’ decisions to make some sort of sense (since normally, I play my Sims games with the focus of having children, regardless of whose.)

This is a story that is based on the first two generations of my first Sims 4 in-game family and their relations with townies. I don’t exactly want to exactly say it’s a legacy story since I don’t have a way of determining an heir, nor do I have any requirements for an heir. It’s literally just whoever gives me a kid the fastest. LOL. Almost everyone in this story were original townies I played with in 2014-2015.
I decided on writing it out since the posts on my blog and my Sims 4 related Twitter posts currently focus around a day-to-day life of their children/grandchildren/great-grandchildren, and there are no real “beginnings” of where they came from. Since I was very attached to the sims I started with and what happened during that time, I decided to write this.

I learned how to use Blender for poses since I could never find the ones I’d imagine my sims in. I wanted to originally write this with only in-game interactions, but it was just so impossible when I started Chapter 2: My Little Girl. There were so many things that I couldn’t reflect without it, even with tricky camera angles and extensive Photoshop. :joy: Now recently that I've done my chapter overhaul, I've retaken a few posts and changed up the amount of text per chapter. Although my chapters are still very long, they're now in fun bite-sized pieces. ;)

I hope you enjoy it <3

[ July 10th, 2018 ]: Ayeee kids I'm back with Chapter 16 fam. Slow and steady wins the r-race?

[ June 24th, 2018 ]: White Lies and Half Truths becomes 2 years old!
I'm still on hiatus as I'm working on fixing some issues :pensive: You can read a little more on this here on WP :)
Since I can't take any screenshots, I drew an anniversary milestone picture instead LOL <3 <3 <3

[ February 14th, 2018 ]: aaaa hiatus again
Sorry for going on hiatus again but at least I'm around for the holidays right
(Why yes, I did unfortunately waste time making more)

[ December 25th 2017 ]: Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays <3 :joy:

[ December 18th 2017 ]: So "short hiatus" from me means 2-3 months *dry laugh* Regardless, my hiatus is over and I'll be alive until winter break dies and I'll show you guys how great of a magician I am by disappearing for another 2-3 months ;)
White Lies and Half Truths will be resuming tomorrow and will hopefully update (maybe) 3x a week to finish off the current chapter. But let's not kid ourselves, I'll probably stick to 2 days a week again
Have a shot of young Lyle (or Peter, really) playing guitar until I actually update tomorrow. LOL.

[ September 6th 2017 ]: Short Hiatus!
School is cutting into my writing time so I'm going to lay low for a while. (More info here.)
Sorry, and thank you!
For readers and lurkers in Florida, stay safe!

[ August 4th 2017 ]: I'm back (for now) and Chapter 15 is in full swing.
I still have a few things to do for school, but I've got two weeks of freedom! And a new note, White Lies and Half Truths will be updated every Tuesday and Friday! Yay schedule!
