A friend, @Mikezumi
generously shared her Jared Padelecki (Sam Winchester) sim with me. She knew of my big crush on Jared/Sam Winchester and her generosity will make my SS dreams come true
One of the things I've been trying to do over this last year in the Sims 3 is things that I've never done before in Sims 3. I played with ghosts earlier this year and loved that experience. I recently added a werewolf to a story and found out they are quite fun to play. I've never played with actors and only played briefly in Bridgeport for a story a couple of years ago. Hopefully it won't be too glitchy. I figured Jared and acting, a perfect match for a story.
This is a story of Jared, Alexandra my simself, and their friends and colleagues. I will still be playing my main story with the Ballan family, this will be a separate save and when I have extra time. I've spent a bit of time over the holiday setting up Bridgeport and the house that Jared purchases in the story. I hope you enjoy it. They are all human too! Big shock coming from me!
I've posted the family trees here in the introductory chapter as it will be easier to find them and make changes as the family grows.
Jared and Alexandra are the original couple. They met in Bridgeport both in the acting career. They married and had twins, Jamie and Jade and then baby Amy. Jared's brother Derek was added during the wedding chapters.
I added Alexandra's parents, Dimitri and Kiara to flesh out the story more and then added the brothers before the wedding. They live in Moonlight Falls and are all humans. No supernaturals in this save other than the background sims. I had not originally planned on playing them, but, after I made them I couldn't not play them. Its like a soap opera where eventually the entire town and folks even beyond town have a part in it.
Nikita is oldest brother, married to Allyson and they have the two boys, Erik and Luka. Allyson is the one with freckles and ginger hair. They are moving out soon! The household is getting too big.
Anton is a bit younger than Alexandra. He is smitten with Taryn who is a sim that @CravenLestat
Zane is a teen and Alexandra's youngest brother. He likes Dani who he went to prom with and she is one of my sims I made.
Derek Padelecki, Jared's brother, his wife Kendall and their son Avery. They live in Bridgeport currently in the brownstone with Jared's family, but they all will have their own homes soon.
Loving in the Limelight
Meet Jared, brave, great kisser, genius, hopeless romantic, and athletic. His lifetime wish is to be a distinguished director. He comes from a family with old money. They are not pleased with his choice of career and consider acting and the theater beneath their dignity. He excelled in drama during his school years. They let him participate hoping he would grow out of the phase. Instead it furthered his desire to make it his career. He is more interested in producing and directing, but, he knows he will need to learn his craft from the bottom up. They have threatened to disown him and in fact told him they would not provide any funding if he persists in this foolishness. His grandmother left him a small inheritance that is legally his on his 19th birthday. So, on his 19th birthday, he visited the family lawyers and accepted his inheritance. It might be small by his families standards, but, it was enough to purchase a run down brownstone on the seamier side of Bridgeport, provide some basic renovations and advertise for roommates to help pay the bills.
Brian Hawk is one of the applicants that Jared agreed to rent a room. Brian told him he grew up in Lucky Palms and moved here to pursue his career. He has a large family back home but they cannot help him while he works his way to leading parts. He had hoped to find a place to stay living with others to help save money. Jared decided Brian would be a lively addition to the household. Brian is a party animal and a night owl. He has a good sense of humor and is artistic. He is very ambitious and even with his party animal traits will study hard to succeed in his craft.
Jared turns down the next several applicants as he felt they would not be reasonable housemates. He still has a bit of extra from the inheritance and he has learned how to collect and sell various minerals that can be found while exploring if he needs more cash. After a couple of weeks he receives a text from an applicant that sounds promising. He texts her back setting a time for a meeting.
Alexandra Sims arrives on time to meet with the owner. She is so excited to be in Bridgeport and hopes a room is still available. Jared is immediately attracted to her and hopes that she feels the same. (Oh, my, YES!) He shows her around the brownstone and she took the room on the upper floor opposite his. He helps her move her things upstairs. She brought a huge mirror and barre to practice her dancing and he helps her set that up. He tells her that he has a lot of exercise equipment set up through the house and she is welcome to use any of it. She is family oriented and loves to read. She brought a box of her favorite books with her. She is a hopeless romantic and friendly. She has that star quality that makes others want to get to know her. Alexandra moved to Bridgeport from Moonlight Falls where her family still lives. They are not able to assist her financially so finding the ad was a blessing to share expenses with others and not have to live by herself. She wants to be an actress and plans to work hard to climb her way up that ladder to stardom.
There is room for one more housemate. Jared hopes someone will arrive soon to take the spot. In the meantime he looks forward to getting to know Alexandra better. He finds her downstairs searching his bookcase for new reading material. He asks her if she would like to go with him to the diner. "It is not fancy. The food is good though, not too expensive, and better than what I can cook."
She giggles and tells him, "I'm not a very good cook. I would love to go with you." She smiles up at him admiring him and hopes she is not being too obvious sneaking peeks at his muscles.
