    I forgot to set my sims in my entry for this week's challenge as married. @GLovely1 , do I need to upload them again or are they okay?

    Hi @NeoFelis22 - I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say they'll be fine as they are. I just re-read this week's brief and it doesn't stipulate that they have to already BE married, so let's say your couple is on the way TO their destination wedding! B) ... I just had another glance at the bio you wrote for them and you said they decided to marry at the next GeekCon .... so the bio is consistent. x <3

    I hope so. Maybe happening to have the same last name helped their relationship along? ๐Ÿ˜

    All the entries are amazing! Loving reading this thread! :)

    @Flash5 is correct! Having your couple actually married already isn't necessary @NeoFelis22 ;) Your creation is really fun & full of originality so you're all good for this challenge ๐Ÿ’œ

    I'm not 100% sure if this challenge is still going on, but I put up my entry anyway! (I called them A Very Rustic Romance on the gallery, I'm LSB12L ) But I'll talk about them anyways! This is the bio I put- Sage and Daveed are long term lovers- Literally. After living in a trashy San Myshunio apartment for years, they still could't afford the wedding of there dreams. Now, It's a different story. These 2 could't imagine a more special day in the cozy town of Brindleton Bay. (And then just hashtags.) If you did't get it, Sage and Daveed are ghosts! I would put in pictures but I don't think I can yet. Also can I just say- I was looking at everyone's entry's, and WOW, they are *Chefs Kiss* Anyways, hope these guys are still in line with the deadline! Thanks!

    Congrats to all the winners of the last round!! Again, it was so much fun seeing all these fun and creative entries! :)
    Also, I love the submissions for the new challenge! :)) So many amazing storylines and awesome sims!

    Yes, @LSB12L the current challenge is wedding destination couple connected to the Spark'd challenge so you're right on time! I really enjoyed your fun storyline for your couple too and thank you for your smile worthy * Chefs Kiss * to all the other entries! ๐Ÿ’œ

    Just in case anyone missed it, I also extended this current challenge until August 1st so there's still plenty of time to get your entries in.

    I also want to say I've noticed a few creators entering more than one entry this time. I'm totally fine with that and actually it's a good idea to so that we can filter through all of the inappropriate entries on the sparkd tab and easily locate some great households to fave under the #GLovelysQCC tag. However, to be fair for the official Nifty Knitting giveaway I will only give my judges one entry from each creator. I plan to give them the one I feel best represents you & all the challenge requirements ๐Ÿ‘ If you would personally like to make that selection, just write in the comments of the entry you would like our judges to score. ;)

    Now, I'll introduce you to Stewart & Whitney ~

    Stewart had it all, until his fall. He finally learned all the simoleons & fame would claim his greatest treasure, the love of his life! From a high he rolled the die & ended crushed. Temporarily, as Whitney's soft heart gushed over his devastated pain. She finally came back to him to stake her claim. No matter the fame, his love for her will be first! Heart relieved, Steward agreed & they got married in his casino. His now wife gave him a locked pair of dice as wedding gift ;)




    ... And they'll give you a sweet wedding gift in about 3 sim days too! ;)

    My twitter post has more to their story for those of you who connect with me there & would like to read ;) Here's the link Stewart & Whitney

    Thanks so much for bringing the kindness, creativity and fun to this thread daily! ๐Ÿ’œ

    My entry, "A Tempestuous Love", is up on the gallery now:

    It was a cold and stormy day in Brindleton Bay. The icy wind was howling fiercly and high black waves were lashing against the shore. However, Matthias, a poor fisherman living in a tiny hut nearby, had gone down to the beach to check if maybe some useful stuff had been washed ashore, but also because he loved to feel the force of nature, the sounds of the storm and the untamed sea. He was a loner and didn't really get along with others, but felt comfortable on his own, when he was close to the sea which for him felt like his natural habitat. He was all lost in his thoughts when suddendly he saw her. A woman, up there on the dunes, with a face pale like the white sand around, with wild black hair tousled by the wind and enchanting eyes, strikingly grey like the clouds in the sky above. He'd never forget the way she was looking at him.

    This woman was Rebecca, a member of the Brindleton Bay's oldest family, whose estate wasn't far away. Somehow, she had always felt out of place in the surroundings she had grown up in, and used every occasion to escape the depressing atmosphere of her home, and to clear her head out in the open, surrounded by the rough and stunning nature of the bay which never stopped fascinating her.

    When she looked in Matthias's breathtaking blue eyes and her looked at her, they immediately felt an undeniable attraction to each other. Not many words had to be exchanged to understand that they had found a person who felt like them, and that their loneliness had finally ended.
    It didn't take much time until they decided to stay together forever and get married, no matter what the rest of the town was thinking about it. And so they celebrated their wedding at the very same beach where they first met. With a storm going on, just like the one that had somehow brought them together. While they were speaking the vows, the roaring and stomping of the waves underlined there words like music, and the salty sea spray rained down on them like flowers, with the seagulls screaming their congratulations.

    I'm back y'all! I really couldn't pick one item last week, but I'm always up for a good romance story ;) The Better Late Than Never Household is up on the gallery to enjoy for y'all (also, did y'all see how well I stuck to the 500 character limit? *pats back*).

    Kody and Jacqueline used to be rivals in both elementary and high school. When they both went off to college, they were glad they never had to see each other again. Unfortunately they both chose the same college and the same courses. Thenโ€ฆ they both decided to do research in Selvadorada. Butโ€ฆ after decades of working together and having several different partners, they realized they never hated each other. They were meant to be together... Forever...

    'Oh', Jacqueline thought, 'I didn't think I'd still be able to feel like this after so many years.'

    'But... ehh, he's pretty lovely.'

    'In fact, he... gives me butterflies...'

    @GLovely1 Would four entries be too many? :D

    The wave of inspiration hit me at work today and I plan to do three more entries (one for each theme). Let me know if I should add the challenge tag to them or not.

    I'm thinking if we all want to use the #GLovelysQCC tag as many times as we like that's totally fine at this point @divanthesimmer . The new official spark'd tab is so junked up still that personally I check this tab now first ;) For fairness though I will only send 1 entry per creator to the judges. I plan to give them the one I feel best represents you & all the challenge requirements ๐Ÿ‘ If you would personally like to make that selection, just write in the comments of the entry you would like our judges to score. ;)

    Aww, wow your couple is so darling @CatharinaSophia ๐Ÿ’œ Very romantic bio (excellent sticking to that darn description character limitation too ;) ) Love their matching greens!

    Bravo @LaTalpaVolante ! What a wonderfully creative story and the way you use words to enhance this story really makes us feel more from them even without seeing a picture here. I see them clearly though as I've seen them already in the gallery! Thanks so much for your beautiful entry ๐Ÿ’œ

    Ohh, yaaay! I'm heading back into the gallery now @MenaBuchner to read all about this fabulously lovely new couple! Thanks for sharing for this challenge sweets! ๐Ÿ’œ

    Keep on creating on and have FUN! ๐Ÿ’œ

I'm not playing much recently, but I'll try to squeeze in a late entry maybe! The romance is in the air with this challenge but also some interesting stories that doesn't quite need love to happen! Hahhaha loving it!

    I haven't said anything, but I'm working on it ๐Ÿ˜

    I donยดt participate for Nifty Knitting, because Iยดll have it when they sell it.
    I'm only missing the Luxury Party and Romantic Garden stuff packs and I hope to complete the collection before the sales end. So, good luck guys!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

    Love in Paradise
    Meilani was feeling sad since she lost her job as a waitress due to her clumsiness. It was the third time she broke several plates. That was the final straw for the owner so Meilani was fired on the spot. Now sat on a rock staring into the ocean. She was lost in thought when she saw something below her. She lost her ballance and dropped right in the arms of Carlos. It was love at first sight for both of them. Carlos was on vacation on the island where Meilani lives. They rarely were apart after they met. They had so much fun together. Their love for eachother grew and now the are about to get married!

    I used the tag for two other couples, but I'd like the one I posted above to be judged.

    For the spooky theme of the Spark'd wedding destination challenge, I created the dark fairy Nox and her zombie lover Seth. To save himself from an untimely death, Seth struck a bargain to become Nox's husband in exchange for eternal life. Note: fairy deals never go well, as Seth learned.


    In the very graveyard where he would have been buried, the zombified Seth proposes to uphold his part of their deal.


    Nox examines the ring to see if it's worthy of her, or if she should give poor Seth back to the worms.


    On finding the ring adequate, Nox decides to keep the ring and Seth, for now.

    The gallery link for the fairy and zombie pair is here. The gorgeous graveyard where Seth is proposing was built by @gothkittymimi and can be found on the gallery here.

    Hi guys x Just a quick query as I don't know whether its just a problem for me or whether you guys are experiencing this too - when I check the #GLovelysQCC there are lots of non-related items appear, when I click 'households only' then the entries appear - BUT - not ALL the entries. For example, I never see my own amongst them and many others that I know are there because I've commented on them in the last week or so. :# Anyone else getting this? x <3
  • LSB12LLSB12L Posts: 7 New Member
    @Flash5 I don't think It was happening to me, but then again the gallery is so glitchy. Whenever it happens to me I just click CC on and off a few times and it works, but it might very well be a gallery bug. I saw your entry when I checked as well. Hope this helps!
  • amp107amp107 Posts: 100 Member
    @Flash5 Ive been noticing that the Glovely hashtag is pulling all kinds of things in the gallery that donโ€™t even use the hashtag as well. I wonder if the massive amount of new gallery items since Sparkโ€™d released has caused its organization systems to crash. Itโ€™s been taking forever for the gallery to load lately for me as well and it freezes a bunch now when I try to explore things.

    Sometimes when I put in #GLovelysQCC I don't see all the entries, but when I check Households on the left of the page, that seems to fix it. I always see where people have copied titles and descriptions identically, if not the sims themselves, mixed in with the legitimate entries. Looking at the Gallery on the web when I'm not on the computer I have the game on, I have the same issue. Using that option, by the way, @Flash5 , it appears that you commented on the one by bluesky575, which is the latest entry that I can see. I hope that this helps.

    Edit: On the web page, I did have to select Households to go back far enough to see your entry, @Flash5 from 10 days ago.
