The Sims Life & Times

The Sims, as anyone who plays can attest, takes on a life of its own. I created this blog so I could keep track of my sim stories and share them with others. I've always wanted to write stories but unfortunately I'm not very good at it lol I am hoping that just as my house building has improved so will my storytelling abilities.

My main family is called the Snookers. My goal was to move 1 sim into Relfamtown and see how the population would grow. I hope you will follow along with me.
If you would like to see all the stories in the Relfamtown series then click on Snooker Chronicles to the left and start at the bottom of the list.

UPDATE - Well since I had a major meltdown and lost Relfamtown, the Snookers are now in Sim Heaven and there will not be anymore updates on them :-( Out of the bad comes good though and Tesime is a new neighbourhood that I created for the Test of Time challenge. I hope you will enjoy their stories as well !

Tesime - Round Six: The Benet chapter

The loving Benet's ! If left to their own devices Skalton and Belle would rather make out with each other than anything else. I guess it is no wonder they now have 5 kids. For the first time ever the genie showed up and of course I could only put the lamp in a backpack :-( Now that Jorn is growing up he had to show his father just how strong he was becoming. Later in the day Jorn invited Violet Gallant over and tried to chat her up. "Vi just being in your presence is like the sun shining after a gray sky" *sigh* Like any boy he wasnt sure if he getting anywhere or not. April Stonegate seemed to have some rather strange notions floating around in that pretty little blond head of her - you are already married woman !! Finally we had lots of aging ceremonies - Ida became a toddler, Annalise became a teen and Belle had another baby boy! Welcome to Tesime little Benito. (This family knows how to do a lovely mix of males and females - The Lindt's and Phan's could take a cue from them ! )
Benet: Skalton, Belle, Jorn, Annalise, Frida, Ida and Benito

Tesime - Round Six: The Gallant chapter

Tesime was one hot island ! Even though the Gallant's were darken skinned, Basil and Forest showed the beginning signs of heat stroke. They spent some time indoors until their temperatures returned to normal. Tre heard a terrible disturbance one afternoon and ran to the front of the hut to see the local wildlife attacking each other. He decided it might be time to use some of the bamboo around the lot to make some sharpened sticks for protection. Finally Basil joined his sister as a teenager ! ( Those Spock eyebrows are something else lol ) Rose took some time to teach Skye how to walk - if those wild dogs came back maybe the child could run for cover. Violet could tell Forest was feeling down so she tried to comfort him. I guess Ping Phan must have heard about her maternal traits because he dropped by and it didn't take a rocket scientist to see what he had on his mind. While Jared Stonegate visited one evening a new baby boy, River, was added to the family. Little Skye became a child and jumped for joy since she was not the youngest or the smallest anymore ! ( I had to include the shot of Rose and Tre talking about the genie lamp, I wasnt the only one wondering what it was all about lol ! )
Gallant: Tre, Rose, Violet, Basil, Forest, Skye and River

Tesime - Round Five: The Phan chapter

Even in sim child birth things aren't easy. Ashanti let loose a stream of blasphemy that would even make a sailor blush ! Of course sailors are not even invented yet so it could be said that Ashanti was the mother of colourful language as well as all these boys she keeps blurping out. In spite of all that pain there was only love in her heart when she set eyes on Mykelti for the very first time. Meanwhile across the room Hasan had an aging ceremony which obviously he was delighted with. Being the same size as Manchu was going to be fun. Ping and Manchu spent time in the garden since Momma Ashanti was busy with the new baby who was growing like a weed. And not to be forgotten Ping had his aging ceremony to a teenager ! Look out girls ;-)
Phan: Cimon, Ashanti, Ping, Manchu, Hasan and Mykelti
