    There was the great time a while ago when I sent a child Sim to bed, only for her to get back out again and… pass out. *eyeroll*

    Sims are incredibly facepalm-worthy sometimes 😂 my favourite one is the sim that goes up three sets of stairs and through a hallway to use the sink in the attic bathroom, instead of the one that is right next to them in the kitchen.

    IF two or more people are talking about a TV show what would they talk about?

    If it's anything like my family it'll be like this:

    "Oh, it's him...I like him. He was in that thing with you know who. You know! Oh, what's his name? You know! You DO know! That show where they were all in black and they did that thing"

    (Right in the middle of some expository dialogue)..."thinking about lunch tomorrow, what would everyone like in their sandwiches?"
    "Wasn't the weather nice today?"
    "Have you heard anything from your friend lately?"
    "Waffle...waffle...waffle...I'm not paying attention to the show and I'm assuming you're not either"

    And certain, older male members of my family are like this during a TV show. "YAAAAAAAWWWWWWNNNNNN! (as loudly as possible)...tut, tut, tut...oh dear, I'm nearly falling asleep...this is such a daft show, does anyone else agree? No? Well I think it's daft YAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWNNNNNN!"

    @CathyTea @_sims_Yimi and to whomever else are interested... I deleted my WP blog and account three days ago. My decision has nothing to do with not writing SimLit anymore, but to burn away all the negativity and pain that tainted the blog. Let the phoenix rise from the ashes, in due time.

    My Sim’s cow won third place in a competition. And guess what? There were only two cows. Umm… what? There was also no result given for the milk competition. *shrugs*

    i once told alec go to bed aprently that translates to whoo with your wife.


    alecs logic you said go to bed not go sleep. at lest thats how i picture it in my head.

    Apparently telling a kid to go use the public toilet means "oo make a mess on the grass" :D

    i think sometimes people think its weird i don't micromange the benders. but they have their own ideas so i tell them something and sometimes it gets translayed by them a differnt way. one thing about them tough they are never boring, plus i stop arguing cause ocassionally their right. don't tell ayden i said that he'll say i told you so.

    IF two or more people are talking about a TV show what would they talk about? Like what's say it's a Soap Opera TV show? I'm guessing one of the things they might talk about (ok I know very little about soap operas, beside the fact of 1) complicated plots , 2 )the possibility of someone who is presumbed dead not being dead 3)the original soap operas on the Radio were sponsored by Soap companies hence the name Soap operas) is if there might me more then 1 romantic interest for a character ? So they might be "Team A" or "Team B" etc? What else would they talk about the Soap opera?

    @MadameLee Who's talking? Just your average people? If it's just average people and the soap opera is full of drama, their could be excited chatter about a prediction - like I knew it was him! Did you know it? I knew it the whole time. I think next time he's going to ... It could be about a murder, amnesia, a secret child, a car accident, an affair, a kidnapping, a work scandal or anything else really. If it's people who are into analyzing, they could talk about the cinematography, the score, the costumes, the Bechdel test and those kinds of things.

    It's not weird; sometimes, when I don't have an idea for where to take a story, I leave it up to RNG do to the storytelling for me and go from there : 3

    Well sort of average teens. One of the people talking is a princess.. but the others are a group of while mean girls she's a part of. She's trying to get the other girls' attenion off of the other Princess (the one's twin sister). Oh there's are the M word, an accident, kidnapping, etc in what I'm going to imagine in-world is a TV show. I might have to play through the story again to make notes, of what could be discussed.. since each eposide will end with a cliffhanger. Including the Season finale.

    My Henford-on-Bagley family lost their dog :(:( Happened in the son’s bedroom, which is pretty sad. They’re all sobbing. RIP Lily, you’ll be missed!

    Edited to add: Now the Grim Reaper is watching the comedy channel on the family’s TV. Even he likes to catch up with the chat shows!

    @Lucy_Henley Aww, I'm sorry to read that. RIP, Lily. <3

    I haven't yet experienced the loss of a Sims pet. I'm really not looking forward to it. We are pet people at our house--rescue doggo and rescue kitty. I hope the Grim Reaper will provide a bit of comic relief when, and if, he pays my Sims a visit.

    theres a cc urinal i got once for the bender boys .my logic was it would help with accidents. but instead it increased accidents cause the 4 boys were all detemuned to hold it to get their turn. alex wasn't in the story yet .

    Finally, my 'Sulani save' story has begun! I'm not great at coming up with titles. Sulani at Heart was designed to cover the fact that the Matsumoto triplets likely won't all live in Sulani as they get older (I haven't yet planned where they'll all live), but they'll definitely be wanting to retain links to their heritage wherever they live.

    Like with 'Magical Mastersons' story, this isn't a meticulously-plotted story or anything like that... it's just recording the day-to-day lives of the Matsumoto triplets and their younger cousins, as well as their parents.

    This post is also featured on my blog. It shows as being originally posted on July 25th, but I updated it to include info on the guys, as well as changing Arisa's photo.

    There's a corresponding story thread in Stories, Challenges and Legacies.

    ***

    Arisa, Keiko and Sakura were born in Sulani. They start dating boys from very different backgrounds. They know they'll likely end up living in different towns when they're older, so will their bond be able to remain strong? And how will they maintain ties with Sulani? After all, to adapt the popular phrase, you can take the girl(s) out of Sulani, but you can't take Sulani out of the girl(s).
    Lars has always had a natural affinity with Sulani culture, and decides to become a mermaid. How will he deal with his newfound abilities?
    Marianne is the youngest in her family by quite a gap. As she gets older, she realises that she's more interested in playing chess and computer games, rather than the active, outdoor activities her parents and older brother enjoy. Can she accept that being 'different' is a good thing?


    (Author's note: Lars will become a mermaid once he's a teenager; he's currently two days away from that birthday. Marianne is still only a toddler right now, so she won't 'narrate' any chapters as such until she's older.)

    (See spoiler for details)
    Now to meet the key characters in the story! Note: at the start of the story, Samuel and Amanda are deceased.

    Samuel and Amanda Foster lived in Lagoon Look in Sulani. Amanda was a painter and Samuel was a chef.

    They had twins Anne and Lucy. Anne is a talented musician, with her main instrument being the violin. She got a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Britechester.

    Lucy is a fitness fanatic, who has a degree in Biology from Foxbury Institute. She works as a doctor.

    Anne married Hiroshi Matsumoto, and they have triplet daughters Arisa, Keiko and Sakura. Anne was born a human Sim, but underwent the Rite of Ascension to become a Spellcaster as a young adult. Hiroshi is also a Spellcaster, as are their children. Arisa is in green, Keiko is in blue and Sakura is in pink.

    Lucy married Max van Beers and they have son Lars and daughter Marianne. All four are currently human Sims, but that will soon changed as mentioned in the intro.

    ***

    I don't have individual photos of them right now, but here are the basic details of the other important characters:

    Declan O'Reilly is originally from Oasis Springs. He has a twin sister Ciara, and a younger sister Orla. His parents are Bridget and Sean. Bridget is a freelance crafter, and Sean is a civil designer.

    Kai Nakayama is originally from Mt Komorebi. He has a younger sister, Hanae. His parents are Fumiko and Daisuke. They also have a cat, Mei-Mei, who's a Siamese. Fumiko is a doctor, and Daisuke is a businessman.

    Felix Bachmann is originally from Henford-on-Bagley. He has an older sister, Klara. His parents are Gretchen and Karl. Gretchen is an athlete, and Karl is a gardener. They used to have a dog, Lily, but she passed away from old age shortly before the family moved to Sulani.

    Suzy gets deeper and deeper into the Triangle of Power conspiracy and there's a new name to contend with. Chapter 119: Leanne. Once again, so much of the action came from pure gameplay, not plotting in advance.
