This is not a resource list. I just needed a sticky for easier navigation.

I'll add a WCIF list at a later point, if I can get the darn game installed again.

The Throttlewoods - JB and Melody

The Rileys

The Frios

It was never really meant to be read by an audience, so it's not as entertaining as my Sims 2 blog is said to be. :P My narrative style has evolved a bit since I wrote this, plus I'm also a little more aware of what makes the Sims community tick, and what they really don't like. Some of the entries have been locked in order to avoid drama and upsetting people's feelings.

However, looking through the entries, I realised that it contains the beginnings of many of the storylines I want to continue, when I can figure out how to install the games again. So, I'm going to rewrite it from the start, adding new text to all the images. My fingers are itching to type up something new!

Since I can't get BodyShop to work, and can't make Sims for TS2, I went for a nostalgia trip.

Some really old screens from previous games.Collapse )

Having done the unthinkable, and disrespected the set premise for how to play a premade household, it was time for me to add insult to injury.

BTW, this was Miley's first catch: A Western Painted Turtle imaginatively named Mike.

Very stylish wedding, this way!Collapse )

The first chapter on the Frios was heavy on the Jared-Claire angle, which admittedly is the most interesting aspect of the family's story line. Claire is actually meant to forget all about Jared, and move on to his brother Connor instead. But as I refuse to play pre-mades the way EA intends it, I had other plans. And just so the blow wouldn't be too hard on poor Connor, he needed to fall in love again as soon as possible. Enter the lovely Anne Song.

I know CAS pictures are cheating, but I just wanted to show that she does in fact still look a little Asian after my questionable first attempt at making her over.

Something actually happens in this entry?!Collapse )

Every once in a while, I get bit by the bug that causes you to want to play the premade households. Thing is, I like to reinterpret them in my own way, and not play out the scenarios the developers have set up. While I let my own original Sims suffer and mess up their own lives as much as they're capable of, I usually try to fix whatever pickles EAxis has put the premades in.

That is why I decided to try to hook Claire Ursine and Jared Frio up.

Here are Connor Frio and Anne Song, meeting for what may very well be the first time. For those who don't play Sunset Valley - or Sims 3 - Connor is one of a duo of brothers with opposite personalities. Connor is said to be a shy good-guy, and Jared is a mean dead-beat. Mean boy Jared has a kid with his ex-GF Claire, who is currently Connor's romantic interest.

You're supposed to hook Claire and Connor up, so they can be a happy, modern family, where the kid's Dad is her biological uncle, and her uncle is her biological Dad. However, it's so easy to make two TS3 Sims fall in love, that I saw no challenge in getting Connor and Claire together. Also, if I'm going to play messed-up families, I'm gonna make the mess myself, thank you! Reconciling Jared and Claire seemed a more fun way to go with it. That's why Connor is seen staring awkwardly into the face of ex-mixologist Anne. He needed to fall in love with someone else.

It's all gonna be rainbows and unicorns from now, isn't it?Collapse )

Fear not. This is the last entry featuring the Rileys' boring existence. In the next chapter, I start messing up the lives of the Frio-Ursine clan, which got sort of more interesting.

I had wanted a venue where bands could perform, so a stage and some instruments got put into the second floor of The Old Tavern. Troy of course made a bee-line for the guitar. Yolanda played the electric piano, while her husband was keeping a watchful eye for a certain open-shirted rival.

Hang in there.Collapse )
Riiiight! I'm re-writing this journal, since I have no other Sim-related scrawlings to offer. Well, then. It's back to the Rileys again. Last time we saw them, they were back from vacation in France, and back to their usual habit of not doing anything noteworthy.

The update starts with a little looksie around town, as the Rileys were getting their beauty sleep.

Looks like Vita decided she could afford to pay blood taxes for another family member after all.

Vita: Neh, it comes out of his pocket money.

And now I have to try to make this entry readable. Lucky me.Collapse )
Insert text here, in order to bump the first picture down, and make them all align all nicely. If one line of text is not sufficient, insert a second line directly below.

Maybe Melody shouldn't have quit her dayjob.Collapse )

Warning: This entry contains a right nasty character, who manages to be autonomously creepy. It doesn't help that I also write him like the nasty piece I see him as.

Melody... no. This is starting to resemble Ryan. And that's horrible.

There are no actual puppies in this update. :(Collapse )
