    Thank you @kittymeow I’m excited for him to meet the other ladies too! Hopefully there won’t be any more shock eliminations, though a concerning number of the girls do seem to have the hot headed or mean trait...

    Haha Eurwen originally had the hot-headed trait but I changed it out for self-assured because i didn't want her eliminated too fast :D

    @afai1261 smart thinking ;)

    Ahhh exciting! There's such an eclectic mix of ladies. Didn't see that first elimination going down that way, or this soon, at all. Super excited to see where you take things.
  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,061 Member
    @Sapphisims I love how different all the ladies are. Everyone was so creative in making the, and writing their backstories - I am super impressed!

    Stay tuned. I shall try to write the next chapte soon(ish).

    Love this first chapter! And whew! Bristol made it through. Faeranduil was such a trooper! What a sweet man. Anyone would be lucky to have him as their husband and king. :love:
  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,061 Member
    @pammiechick thank you :) hehe Faeranduil was very patient. Poor guy... I did feel bad for him in this chapter!

    Phew, this chapter took forever (ok, a few hours) to write. But, Faeranduil has finally met all the women! I hope that I have done them all justice.

    I loved both of these introduction chapters! I already have a few favourites but these may/will change as the weeks progress and we learn more about the girls' personalities.

    I must say, your writing style is highly addictive! I can't wait for the next chapter! :D

    Glad to see that Faeranduil & Chenusa have painting in common, though Chenusa seems very timid being around the prince (perhaps she is afraid the prince will judge her based on her very, very bad ancestor). Also laughing at the entire interaction Faeranduil had with Estoden. He's trying to make small talk and she can't help herself but make herself seem superior.

    You nailed Duvaineth's personality and motivations perfectly! Great job!

    Wonderful update. I really love your writing.
  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,061 Member
    @Munterbacon I’m glad you like my writing style, thank you so much! I personally can’t pick my favourites yet - I just wish he could marry them all :D
  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,061 Member
    @VanPelt81 thoughts about a certain ancestor are definitely making Chenusa nervous. Faeranduil has no idea about her heritage yet and she’s afraid he will find out. I really liked writing Estoden - I think her character is absolutely hilarious :D

    @NyteRose oh thank you! I’m so glad I got it right :) she’s an interesting one!

    @Irishsong thank you! I kinda love Midna, she’s so cute <3

    @JACKIEJOY thank you so much!
  • NyteRoseNyteRose Posts: 1,307 Member
    @MaggieMarley Now you have me wondering what she's done so far in your game!

    Yay, chapter! I'm really liking all of the characters.

    A mod that I use to have all of the contestants at the same place is larger households, but ot gets complicated trying to get everyone home again.

    A great 3rd chapter. I did like the call back to the first chapter in the form of the prince & his father talking about the lady he had to eliminate. Also, Estoden gets goofy when she is flirty (case and point the bloopers).
  • DamaroDamaro Posts: 382 Member
    Seems like Estoden finally catches up in acknowledging Dil's charms! But I have to say, as the prince I would wonder if Eurwyn's 'services' would be the oldest profession hearing how she paraphrases it. :b
    I can't wait for first Selection party! I bet there will be drama :lol:
  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,061 Member
    @Irishsong thank you, I might have a look into larger households. Does that also allow you to invite more sims to parties? I saw a mod somewhere which allows you to have up to 200 guests, which is cool (also way more than I need)!

    @VanPelt81 thank you - and thank you for blessing us with Estoden. She cracks me up :D

    @Damaro hehe that did come to mind when I was writing it (don’t worry, that’s not her profession, though!) thankfully she didn’t say it out loud...I hope there’s drama at the party. I’m kinda hoping that some of the mean or hotheaded girls will fight, but I won’t force it if they don’t

    AH xD I missed the start. So here's my thougts on each chapter now ^^ (You already know me :p )

    Prologue:

    The palace looks AMAZING! But I already saw that in your signature :) Still, awesome!

    Your writing style is great. I love it!

    I think I have a crush on the prince now xD Even tho I can't pronounce his name at all lol


    1.1:

    His cousin is annoying me already but the wife is even worse -.- (Forgive me but I'm unable to remember their names xD)

    Bahaha, Em already shows her best side *cough*

    Oh no :( Why is Dirzrae (is that spelled right?) mean on the first day? :( Poor prince... Who's sim was it? :# Did she leave because of the rule (don't be rude to other contestants or even the prince). Sorry if this has been answered before but I skipped the comments because SPOILERS :D


    1.2:

    Oh wow, so many interesting characters. I can't even decide which one to ship on lol But to be fair, there are 20. I guess Em won't make it too far. She's really mean. And she's the first and only sim in my game that died of anger :# Just saying...

    What exactly is a pixie? Or will we learn more about that in the following chapters?


    I'm running out of time now so I'll read 1.3 tomorrow :)

    I decided to just edit this post ^^ Don't want to double post here :)


    1.3:

    I admire the prince's patience with the ladies. Some seem to not like being at this place and let him feel it (or do I sense this wrongly?). If someone would make me feel my place is bad and they'd rather be anywhere else (or at home), I wouldn't be this nice anymore lol Well, that's actually happened to me before. A girl moved to my region from a different region in Germany to study here. She only complained about how bad and ugly everything is here and how much better her home is. I just told her to go back then :D

    Eurwyn kinda reminds me of myself meeting someone new: "Tell me something about your life." The one question that makes you realize how boring your life is :D

    Love the bloopers ^^

    For the party "issue": You can only invite 15 but I sometimes use the "invite to come over" interaction to get everyone to be around. And even tho you can invite 15 with the party thing, not all of them will show up. But I remember from the rules that those women are safe from elimination then. :)

    @MissSassy thank you so much for your thoughts on the chapters! I’m so glad you liked it since I’m inspired by you :)

    You have @afai1261 to thank for the prince. I may have a slight crush on him too :D

    You’re right, Dizrae was eliminated because she was rude to the prince (so she broke that rule). Repeatedly. I really had no choice, which was a shame as I wanted her to stick around.

    Ahh I hope Em will prove you wrong. None of the mean girls have shown their mean sides... Yet. Dizrae didn’t have the mean or evil traits - just the hotheaded trait. That’s what made her elimination so surprising to me!

    I’m no expert but I think a pixie is a bit like a fairy. Midna was made by @Irishsong

    Aw, thank you! But as some others said, too, your writing style is way better than mine :D And the idea with the elves is a thousand times better than mine :D

    It's hard to eliminate contestants because of their rude behavior :/ It's even worse with the tense moodlet during storms :# Luckily, the girls in my current challenge only swore and didn't snap at anyone.

    I think I've changed Em's traits for this challenge tho. I can't remember ^^ But she's made to be a real beast :joy:

    Btw, I edited my post above and added my comments to 1.3 ^^
