Disclaimer: This post is not about my sims or my hood. I just wanted to spread the word. I’ve joined this writing challenge at the Sims 2 Community. If you like to write and want to join us, click here. I had a lot of fun doing it.

Guidelines – by Gemmareno

– Your piece must be written in the first person narrative, i.e. me, we etc.
– You have 15 minutes to write this. Either time yourself with an alarm or phone, or use the useful link by FurryPanda
– You must have a minumum of 500 words, although you shouldn’t go over 2000.
– Copy and paste straight onto this thread. Do not edit or rewrite your piece. Spelling, grammar and punctuation can be revised but without a dictionary and such.”

I used “Write or Die” from Dr. Wicked to write my contribution. It’s really cool –

“Write or Die is a web application that encourages writing by punishing the tendency to avoid writing. Start typing in the box. As long as you keep typing, you’re fine, but once you stop typing, you have a grace period of a certain number of seconds and then there are consequences.”

So, anyway, I did it – ha ha – and I’d like to share my contribution here, too. Don’t hold your punches – any feedback / criticism is welcome!

The Telephone Call

“So, does it ever bother you that I’m half-alien?” Johnny Smith teasingly asked Ophelia as they ate dinner together.

Loki and Circe Beaker’s Secrets (Part 2)

The Social Rules – Beaker Style

Circe Beaker swore by two simple rules in order to have a successful social situation outcome:

a) Fake it
b) Always do the opposite of what you really want to do

“Faking it” meant that she had to show appropriate emotions & facial expressions at the proper time. For example, there should be no laughing in public when talking about your neighbor’s wife’s disappearance. Instead, one should feign a proper sadness and deference for the injured party.

“Always do the opposite of what you really want to do” is pretty self-explanatory. For example, it meant that she had to smile and nod and look straight into the eyes of the other sim when said other sim was making conversation. And try to work in a compliment into the conversation.

Even though her second instinct was to yawn AND put her fingers in her ears. (Her first instinct? Bash said other sim’s head in. But that would make for an unsuccessful social interaction so that was a NO-NO.)

Loki Beaker, Interrupted

Loki Beaker peered through his binoculars and zoomed in on a now familiar view. The broken and smoking debris of the spaceship was there, but … Loki frowned and scanned the area … but the men in uniform who had guarded the area for years were nowhere to be seen. Now, why was that?

Who’s Your Daddy, Nervous Subject?

Most sims dream of winning the lottery. Oddly enough, Nervous Subject never even dreamed of that. Yet here he was, the winner of a cosmic joke of a lottery and he did not know what he had done to deserve it.

As he sat down on the most comfortable sofa he’d ever sat on (his sofa now) and patted the plush cushions (his cushions now) – he wondered if he ought to pinch himself to find out if he’d wake up. He couldn’t decide if he was in a dream or a nightmare. He was leaning towards a nightmare.
