Hello everyone! I'm SerraNolwen. I love reading and writing stories, and when I'm tired, I love playing the Sims. For this reason, it is no surprise that I have decided to create a blog for my Sims stories. Truth be told, the mystery is rather why I didn't do it sooner.
But really, what is Once Upon a Sim? Well, it is a collection of stories inspired by animated movies, a lot of which are fairy tales, of course. This is not a Disney Princess challenge. In fact, it is not a challenge at all, nor is it a legacy. It is just a way to branch out and try new things, getting lots of inspiration from things I cherish. I will be creating all the characters and building all kinds of lots for these stories to take place in. What I create will not be perfect reproductions of the characters, things and stories from the movies: I do not use cc, some things are just not available or possible in the Sims game, and I will certainly be adding things based on my whims and preferences. For example, I intend to keep following the characters after their story, as they grow and make a place for themselves in the contemporary Sims world. Characters from one movie might also encounter characters from other movies. Still, I will try to get as close to possible to the general feel of the stories, and to throw in little details based on elements of the movies. For this reason, I would love to discuss with you how I could bring in some fun elements.
So why this thread? Well, mainly to let people know about the blog and to keep them updated as to when I post, of course. Here, I will also discuss my struggles and decisions as I try to figure out how to represent elements I particularly love, and share characters and builds as I create them. Yep, that means you'll know a little early what people you'll be seeing (unless it has to be a big surprise, of course). I'll sound like a broken record, there, but I'd love to discuss those things with you, so drop in and tell me what you think I could add! (So long as you don't tell me to download cc, please.)
The next post will give you links to each wordpress post as I update the current story I'm working on. The one after that will contain links to other related threads and older stories, once I get to working on a second story in the same game. I'm keeping another post for... whatever else might come up, as I'm sure I'm forgetting something.
Now, go ahead and scroll down! I hope you enjoy my stories!
