    There are several phrases in these questions I'm not sure I understand correctly, but I'll do my best.

    #1 Which character would get wasted at a holiday party and end up hum.ping the Christmas tree?
    Thomas Nightshade. Because Kellie was oblivious to his attepts to seduce her and he didn't get any. Again!

    #2 Which character deserves to get the cra.p beaten out of ‘em by the Krampus?
    Hm, let me think. Max Caliente. Yeah, he's a sleaze*bag.

    #3 Which character is the Grinch this year?
    Thomas again. He's so frustrated that he's no fun. :)

    #4 Which character would try to get a little too friendly while sitting on Santa’s lap?
    None of my characters. But Tony would probably do something to him for being seemingly too friendly with the kids.

    #5 Who would your antagonist most like to tongue beneath the mistletoe?
    Antagonist? You mean like villain? The villains in my story are mostly old men (Lien, Michael), I don't want to think of them like that, ugh. But Max Caliente is probably still having dreams about himself and Kellie. (Now I can't unsee the picture, thank you very much!)

    #6 Which character would accidentally tip the menorah and light the house on fire?
    Maybe Celeste. But she would do it on purpose because her siblings were having a heated discussion again making her the subject of their argument. Yeah, she would totally burn the house.

    #7 Which character is most likely to bring magic brownies to a holiday party?
    Terry Mitchel. "Hello, Kellie. I'm just dropping by to wish you a happy holiday and here are some cookies. No, I didn't bake them myself. My sister did."

    #8 Which character is most likely to ring in the new year naked? And why the plum are they naked in the first place?
    Raven could do that, but very gracefully and for Chris' eyes only.

    #9 Which character is absolutely kidding themselves by insisting they belong on the nice list?
    Right now Chris Heffner. The darkness in him grows. He thinks the uniform automatically makes him a good guy. But he will cause a lot of pain.

    And Thomas Nightshade is not the cute teenager anymore either. Working for his father is changing him. He tasted the power.

    #10 Which characters would readers be most shocked to find on the naughty list?
    Not sure it is shocking enough, but the chief of police has some dark secrets. ;)

    Questions answered for @VIRTUALEE

    1. For those of you that have followed the original CB story and now are caught up to the prequel, I am wondering if the supernatural aspects of the story are TOO much.
    At first when I saw the laser beams coming out of Tati's eyes I thought it was too much, because I didn't expect the story to go that way. But I got used to it. It is rather funny now, how Tati's powers trigger accidentaly. :)

    2. Piggy backing off of the last question, was the ‘Lore’ of this story too complicated? How would you have simplified it?
    It may seem so when you are waiting for the next episode and forget what was in the previous one. I'm planning to watch/read everything again to refresh my memory.

    3. I do love me some serious twists and turns in these stories, what has been your favorite twist thus far and why?
    I was blown away when the Goths house burned down. I'm still wondering who did it. That was very unexpected and dramatic. Also the revelation who Tati's mother was made my jaw drop. Awesome twist indeed.

    4. Do you have any speculations on where this story is going?
    Well, there's the curse and we know Humberto will be born in the future. So Enrique and Tati are going to end up together somehow, probably only for a while. I'm really curious how it will play out and if they get involved accidentally or deliberately and if the curse is also responsible for it somehow.

    5. Any favorite CB characters so far? Any you just can’t read yet and would like to know more of?
    I really like Morti. I secretly ship him with Tati. Not Enrique but Morti. Don't know why. :) I would also love to read/see more of the townies because I was so looking forward to their stories when I saw them teenificated/teenified (what kind of word is that anyway? :) )

    6. The ‘teenification’ of the townies was a huge risk, do you think I was able to pull it off and make them believable?
    I think we haven't seen them enough except for Bella and Mort and those two are perfect. I love how you write them.

    7. Any recommendations or questions you would like to share?
    I have to admit I want to see Tati interact more with other teenagers. She spends a lot of time at home.

    Qs for @VIRTUALEE

    Where did you get the idea for the CB series from?

    What made you want to write a prequel?

    Which character is the most fun to write?

    Since you do video stories, how do the words go from paper to voice?


    Which is your favourite chapter so far?

    Thank you Spotty and @Maladi777 for responding thus far!

    I got the idea for CB playing with CAS. I eventually was inspired for the prequel because CB was ending and I wanted more of the story for myself. Humberto's mother was the perfect candidate as she was so interesting. I mean who doesn't want to know about her psychic prowess and past with the reaper?! lol. My favorite character to write about has been Celeste and Adriel in tandem - they are so unique in a cliche's sort of way. (Wait wass that sentence an oxymoron?) I wrote the prequel all out in a matter of a week 40ish chapters, so the voices became real in my head as I wrote each chapter and developed the story line. I knew Juliette (Maimi) would be french, and Adriel would have a British accent. I knew Enrique had to be spanish simply because Humberto in the original story is. It was a story that was itching to be birthed to paper and it was amazingly effortless to carry out (now if only screenshotting were as easy hehe). My favorite chapters are absolutely linked to the lore of the story. I love things of the past and imagining what 'heaven' would be like so merging the two themes together was a dream for me.

    Thanks again for the questions Spotty!

    I am leaving for out of town AGAIN today soooo I will chat with you all upon my return - in the meantime HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS HUGS

    So I made something special. I got the idea when I made the cover for @Sterretjeee 's Farrahs book "The Butterfly Effect". It is a magazine with some of the most known sim made books, films and games. It is called We love!

    The articles have MAJOR SPOILERS of @Sterretjeee Grace - A build Newcrest story, @pammiechick Day and Knight, @CitizenErased14 Dust to Dust and Ashes to Ashes, @Maladi777 Heffner Legacy
    It contains also a reference to @JoieWilder Thoreau legacy but this one is not spoiling because nearly everything in this article is just fictitious
    of me.

    If you are one of the mentioned above, please feel free to post the articles with your story / the story of your sims on your thread. If you want to do that please link to this comment if anyone is interested in reading the full version :)
    @Marialein I think it's absolutely amazing that you posted this! It's so amazing! <3
    Will post it on my thread soon!

    @VIRTUALEE

    1. For those of you that have followed the original CB story and now are caught up to the prequel, I am wondering if the supernatural aspects of the story are TOO much.
    Absolutely not, poor Kali was cursed so those aspects make more than sense. Especially after Humberto going loco! I was wondering what was up with that!

    2. Piggy backing off of the last question, was the ‘Lore’ of this story too complicated? How would you have simplified it?
    It's not and I wouldn't have, I think the story wouldn't be strong enough without it. I love when certain happenings suddenly make sense through complicated routes :lol:

    3. I do love me some serious twists and turns in these stories, what has been your favorite twist thus far and why?
    This one is hard.... Maybe the fact that it actually was that complicated! It makes the story unique.

    4. Do you have any speculations on where this story is going?
    Well Tati's going to have sexy time with the guy hottie, he's defs Humberto's father :lol:

    5. Any favorite CB characters so far? Any you just can’t read yet and would like to know more of?
    I love Bella, she's so much fun and reminds me of my own bff. I would like to know more about Eliza though.

    6. The ‘teenification’ of the townies was a huge risk, do you think I was able to pull it off and make them believable?
    I loved it! Sure, everyone would have different interpretations. But this is your story and I love to read yours.

    7. Any recommendations or questions you would like to share?
    Hurry up already! :lol:
    Just kiddin', but really can't wait for the next video <3

    @Spottydog714 I love this idea! Definitely participating, thanks for sharing <3
    And we should try @Maladi777 's suggestion as well, sounds like so much fun ;)

    #1 Which character would get wasted at a holiday party and end up hum.ping the Christmas tree?
    Oh gosh, this is a hard one already! We've just briefly met him, but it definitely would be Samuel. Farrah's manager.

    #2 Which character deserves to get the cra.p beaten out of ‘em by the Krampus?
    Well, that would be a spoiler ;)
    For now... The writers of those ❤️❤️❤️❤️ gossips!

    #3 Which character is the Grinch this year?
    Mirjam, she's still bitter about the fight...

    #4 Which character would try to get a little too friendly while sitting on Santa’s lap?
    Margo! Just not in the naughty way :lol:
    Simply because she really is that jolly!

    #5 Who would your antagonist most like to tongue beneath the mistletoe?
    I guess I don't really have one of those... yet... >:)

    #6 Which character would accidentally tip the menorah and light the house on fire?
    Graham, poor guy would probably beat himself up over it too!

    #7 Which character is most likely to bring magic brownies to a holiday party?
    Sophia! She loves stuffing other people, like the amazing (grand)mother she is.

    #8 Which character is most likely to ring in the new year naked? And why the plum are they naked in the first place?
    Jenna! She's that kind of girl :lol:
    Because a new-years skinny dipping dive is the best way to start the new year!

    #9 Which character is absolutely kidding themselves by insisting they belong on the nice list?
    Ryan (Troian's husband). He's not necessarily a bad guy, just not a very nice guy.

    #10 Which characters would readers be most shocked to find on the naughty list?
    I don't really know whether it's a surprise, but Mirjam ;) Oops! Spoiled something anyway!

    Those last few things look AMAZING wow

    I just wanted to ask, is this reading circle open to new members?

    We aren't accepting new members right now. @Jellysimwich isn't active so we could probably accept a new one but we would prefer someone whose story most of us have been already following to make things easier. It is hard to keep up with stories of 10 members as it is. A completely new story sounds overwhelming to those of us who are too busy with their everyday life.

    It wouldn't be fair to you if we couldn't discuss your story and plot and characters for the lack of time to read it at all.
    Have you checked this thread which circles are looking for new members? I really hate refusing anyone who wants to join, but ten members of which some actively write multiple stories is plenty of reading. I'm really sorry. :(

    No problem, it's fine! :)

    #1 Which character would get wasted at a holiday party and end up hum.ping the Christmas tree?

    I guess if Gabriel would be an adult right now it would be him … If not him maybe Shai. I am not sure about that one.

    #2 Which character deserves to get the cra.p beaten out of ‘em by the Krampus?

    I say Ferro. He just doesn't deserve it otherwise.

    #3 Which character is the Grinch this year?

    Tony, Shai, and Gabriel. They are all not in the mood to celebrate.

    #4 Which character would try to get a little too friendly while sitting on Santa’s lap?

    @Spottydog714 your sim you submitted for my amazons :p

    #5 Who would your antagonist most like to tongue beneath the mistletoe?

    Hmmm for this one I think i would spoil a bit but Ferro said something like that already so …
    Luna ;)

    #6 Which character would accidentally tip the menorah and light the house on fire?

    Maybe Robert. He is clumsy ;)

    #7 Which character is most likely to bring magic brownies to a holiday party?

    I don't have one here.

    #8 Which character is most likely to ring in the new year naked? And why the plum are they naked in the first place?

    Well, it could be that Luna and Armeni would celebrate it together ;)

    #9 Which character is absolutely kidding themselves by insisting they belong on the nice list?

    Ferro.

    #10 Which characters would readers be most shocked to find on the naughty list?

    Nope. No one there.

    Not sure whereabouts she resides but if she were in the USA she'd likely be seen as Caucasian and Polynesian/Islander heritage. (Like Disney's Moana.) Possibly Tongan, maybe, Samoan.

    Thank you @Jellysimwich ! She resides in Britain (I don't think ever set a story any where else) but I think I'll go with Polynesian. :blush:
