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 Ten : The Benet chapter

The Benet's were fortunate to have most of their children find good mates and be able to move into their own huts.  This is course meant more of the work fell to the Belle and Skalton and as elders they really could not keep up as they once did.  Their remaining son, Benito, was a great help but so far they were discouraged that he was still single.  Being the heir it was up to him to keep the homestead going.  One evening Skalton went to check on the vegetable patch and he was surprised to see strangers standing in the middle of the cucumbers.  The leader, a fellow in long robes and a scythe, becokned him closer.  It looked like quite a festive event and Skalton felt better than he had in years.  He was lighter and more carefree and the drink that Grimmy passed along was so refreshing !  As he began to fade Skalton realized he was going to the afterlife and waved at his beloved Belle and hoped she would not worry too much.  As usual, there were many tears from those left behind but Benito hoped some good would come from the tragedy so he could give his mother some joy in her last days.

Tesime - Round Ten : The Gallant chapter

When we last left the Gallant's, Ida (Benet) had just moved in and was making fast friends.  Forest was totally smitten and could not wait to make her his mate and her in laws were counting the days until they heard the pitter patter of little feet again. Often Tra would spend his day talking with the other elders in the community and the topic always came around to who was the latest to meet their maker.  On one particularly lovely summer day it was time for Forest to have his aging ceremony.  His father, Tra, was very proud of the man he had become and they shared many an evening discussing what would be expected of him when he joined with Ida in a few months.  Unfortunately before that day arrived Rose was struck by the white light from the sky and taken to her spirit home.  The family was inconsolable.  They managed to lift themselves out of their grief in time to help Ida make her transition into adulthood and were actually happy when the joining day arrived.  Once her belly began to grow they celebrated the creation of a new life and knew Rose was smiling down on them.
