It was a little easier than I thought. XD So anyway, I'm just taking a minute to organize a few things around here. Changed the tag cloud to a list, stickified the F&R index. Resources and character stats could probably be sticky too, but all that scrolling annoys me so I think I'll just leave it to the links in the sidebar. Hope I didn't alarm anyone with the ch-ch-changes!

So I've been working on the Good Genes challenge and came up with two possible candidates. I can't submit both of them since they share a grandpa, but can you guess who contributed the genetics?



Short haired girl is descended from two Strangetown dudes, one from whom she gets her nose and chin, the other just cheekbones and NOTHING else (you'll never guess on features alone.) The third donor is an obscure bin lady who gave her the lips and eyes.

The second girl's donors are the same Strangetown dude who contributed the nose, as well as a bin Sim and a dead but resurrectable Sim, both female. The eyes are pretty recognizable I think.

I'm trying to figure out the family dynamics of the Tricou family, but it seems like every time I resurrect them I get a different result. Part of it might be the differences between the original and cleaned up hoods, and the Resurrect-O-Nomitron making the ressurector Best Friends with everyone.

The first time I played them a long time ago, Kiernen and Jennail hated each other while Nyllisit and Kvornan immediately started making out due to ACR. The wiki describes a similar thing to what I remember. I just resurrected them using the original hood and Nyllisit and Kvornan now have negative chemistry and Jennail vaguely dislikes Kiernen while he seems to have no problem with her? I would appreciate if anyone's who's resurrected this family and played with them could describe how everyone got along with each other in your game.

ETA: I'm looking at their relationships in Sim Pe and it's all oddly imbalanced with almost no mutual scores between two Sims. Almost everyone dislikes Kiernen, but he doesn't dislike any of them back! And Gvaudoin has a 0 or lower lifetime score with everyone except Fricorith.

So I decided to assign the MBTI to the F&R cast as I write them. (I didn't actually take the test ten times, I just guessed at who fit each one.) This actually helped me get a much better understanding of what all the types mean! All descriptions are stolen from Tvtropes.

Cut for psychobabble... )

First of all I need to pimp an awesome new community: [livejournal.com profile] simstorylibrary, a new place to recommend and review Sims stories! As you can see, F&R has an entry up where can leave reviews if you'd like. Now, go post entries for your stories and ones that you want to recommend!

This is an edit of the mustache that [livejournal.com profile] sentate used for his story, trimmed down even moreso. It's only available in black, but if anyone wants to recolor and bin it, feel free to do so!

ETA: Simgaroop has binned and recolored the files for you guys! So much thanks to her!

Also, if anyone wants the tears makeup that I use, you can get it here.

And finally, I made a Langerak family tree for anyone who's confused on how things are set up in my story.

Spoilers for Chapter 8 under the cut... )

Give me one of the characters from my story and I will tell you:

* How I feel about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing that will happen to this character in the future of my story.

I tag EVERYONE ON THE PLANET!

I put up a Wild Mass Guessing section for F&R on TVtropes in case anyone wants to post their theories. I have a feeling people will have at least guessed the identity of the Mysterious Woman after the next chapter, but not the whole story. Also, there are a couple more mysteries to be introduced as well and some important character revelations. Also, tons and tons of flashbacks:

Dina is actually not a teen in this picture, she's only supposed to be a few years younger. That hairstyle really softens her up!

Hello, friends! I've created a Formspring account in case anyone wants to ask me Sims or story related questions. Please, no personal questions and while a little naughtiness/profanity is okay, keep it PG-13.

So, Dina and Nina are fraternal (sororital?) twins, yet they have different Zodiac signs. Fortunately, Scorpio and Sagittarius are consecutive (traditionally, though Ophiuchus completely screws that up) so you could explain this as them being born on the cusp. My original thought was that Nina was born before midnight November 23, and Dina was born some twenty minutes later on the 24th. I later realized that I was a day off, and technically Sagittarius starts on the 23rd, but since it's the cusp I figure Nina can still identify as a Scorpio if she wants to. I didn't want to change Dina's birthday because I looked up the metasymbology card for November 24th, and it said this:

This has been called the "Wish Card", and for all 9 of Hearts, there is an intimate connection between money and love. Money may come, or love may come, but the two never seem to work together for any length of time.


Of course, none of this is particularly important to the story, but that made me LOL. Fortune & Romance, indeed.

I'm trying to only use Maxis-based characters in my story. So far I have made a couple exceptions for background extras, the first being the staring kids in Dina's high school flashback (who you may notice all have something in common) and the other being two extras at the party. Otherwise, I thought I'd point out recognizable faces in case you missed them.

I think it's already been pointed out who "Donald" actually is.

I'm just checking in to say I am working on Chapter 2, and hoping to get it posted within this next week. While the first chapter focused on Nina, this next one will be taking a look into Dina's head. There'll be some backstory on their "family history" and why Nina's aspiration level was so low in Chapter 1.

Also, angst. I wasn't trying to woobify them, I swear, but it's built right into their memories!

Why am I crying at my own Sims pictures?

Speaking of which, my initial inspiration for this story came from two of Dina's memories, both of which seem to be pretty large errors on Maxis's part. Dina's story will be a way of explaining those memories in a way that makes sense without being creepy. I don't feel too bad taking liberties because all the premades' memories contain inconsistencies (apparently Skip impregnated Brandi post-mortem?). I kind of think The Sims is all about screwing around with canon anyway, by the very nature of the game. I mean, the creators sure like to screw around with it.

One of those memories is an event that will occur in the next chapter. There are probably enough clues in what I've previously posted for you to guess what it is...
