About This Blog


Welcome to my blog!

I like to write as a hobby and so once I saw storytellers I knew I had to try it out.  I’m also a pretty visual person and enjoy comic so I try to let the pictures help me tell the stories.

Content

I decided to keep things at a PG-13 level to relate to EAs rating on the game.  I think its entirely possible to write a good story without a lot of language, violence or innuendo taking it over the age limit.  For this reason you won’t be seeing a lot of blood or explicit adult scenes but that doesn’t mean I avoid those subjects or gloss them over.

I like to take what I call the “Hitchcock Approach”.   Film director Alfred Hitchcock held that only showing the audience a little bit and letting their imaginations fill in the rest was a far more effective way of storytelling than showing everything. I love his movies and so with my pictures and writing I will attempt to show just enough and let you fill in the rest.

My Approach to Sim Stories

These basically are fan stories so I try to remain in and attempt to tell stories through the lens of the Simverse.  For example you won’t be seeing the term “English” but “Simlish”.  I might give a nod to the real world with a “simified” expression but in general I won’t be referring to anything other than the world EA gives us in Sims 3.

I do a bit of personal universe building since for most of my stories I’m working with Fantasy and Science-Fiction themes but I try to let them be worked out through what EA gives us.  Like seeing ghosts is undisputed and common place for Sims so for my writing that would be reality as far as the Simverse is concerned.  Since you are reading these stories I am assuming you have knowledge of the Sims 3 so I won’t be explaining any of the terms used.  I draw from a lot of mythology and literature for inspiration and put in notes at the end of chapters to share where I get things for inspiration.

My Stories

All of the tables of contents for the stories are linked in the top bar on the blog but if you want to read a brief summary of each story before deciding to read head on to the Stories or Short Stories pages.

My Narratives/Commentaries

These have no plot and are generally files I play when I’m relaxing and post up on tumblr.  In general these are updated less frequently than my plotted stories.  These are listed on my Narratives and Extras page.

Chapter Release Rotation

Since I will be working on several stories at the same time I thought it would be a good idea to let you guys know how I intend to juggle all of them.  Click here to see which story will be getting an update next.

  3. I’m going to try and catch up on all of these, they seem a lot of fun to read ^^ Might take a while, though. A long while. 0.o
    It’s amazing that you can juggle so many stories and legacies at once!

    • I hope you enjoy! I do post summaries when I progress to a new generation so you can always catch up like that.

      I rotate them. I like variety when I game and I like jumping between files when I play so if I have a story idea for a file then I figured I would rotate them all. lol.
