Chapter 11 – The Envy of No One – has been published to The Seven Ridiculous Sins. Enjoy!
I’m happy to announce I updated my Seven Sins story with a new chapter.
This was an old Tumblr short story that I wrote 5 years ago. In that time, Tumblr became… let’s say… anal… about the content of things they allow people to blog about. I recently noticed my story as it was posted, was missing the ending because it was too “controversial.” Therefore, I’m saying Fuck Tumblr, and I’m moving that story to this WordPress blog. Enjoy.
Pose with Sim sitting by the bathroom wall, and pose with Sim laying on the floor are made by me, LateKnightSimmer.
For the past seven years the girl had been subjected to the cruelty of negative words. She had been taught that ‘sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.’ Unfortunately for her, this age old saying did not ring true. In fact, this saying was a load of bullshit. The cruel words the girl had been hearing for the past seven years were, on the surface, not that cruel, but to her, they were the worst. She had heard these words so often that she was dead inside from them. Plenty of people would say to the girl that she should lighten up, take a joke, and stop being a drama queen because it’s not that big a deal. The girl had been taking their advice, but for her, none of those things were very admissible. When she tried to lighten up, the words still stuck with her, when she tried to laugh and take it as a joke, the words still stuck with her, when she tried not to make a big deal out of it, the words still stuck with her. That was the problem.
The girl continues to go through her life, through the motions, cutting her skin daily, and as time goes on, she becomes numb to everything around her. It’s not that she wasn’t numb before, but the cutting is making it worse, even though she doesn’t see it that way. She sees the cutting as a way to feel something, anything other than the numb feeling of nothing that her life has become. One day the girl goes to her class, the one that she’s been going to this semester, and one of the people who talks to her regularly, who thinks they are her friend, calls her a slacker. Her friend is one of those people who think that it’s fun to give someone a hard time when they feel comfortable enough with each other, and he is relentless at this because he is comfortable with her. The problem is that she is not comfortable with him. Throughout class, the word ‘slacker’ sticks in the girl’s head. It becomes so loud, like it’s turned up to full volume, and it’s blaring in her ears. She can’t even concentrate on the teacher, the subject matter, her notes, anything. All she hears is her supposed friend’s cruel word. Yeah… on the surface, slacker is not the worst word in the world to be called, but this girl, she had been through a lot, she didn’t need yet another negative word on her mind. Class finishes and the girl goes back to her apartment, the word ‘slacker’ still crawling through her mind like a disease.
In a fit of rage, the girl goes to her kitchen and takes out her chef’s knife. She places it over her small dainty wrist, and says a few last words.
“Finally, the world will be rid of one less slacker.”
With that, she screams in pain as she slices her veins open and lies down on the kitchen tiles which are cold and hard, the last thing she feels is the tiredness that overcomes her because of the extreme blood loss she has just inflicted on herself. ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me?’ Yeah right. What a load of bullshit.
When this story was on Tumblr, I had a post on here directing people to read it, but to come back to WordPress if they wanted to leave a comment. The link below will take you to that WordPress post with the comments.
Wow! It’s been a long time since I posted on this site. I have no idea how many of you are even still following me. I wouldn’t blame you if you have jumped ship. I’ve had a thing where I go through phases of hobbies, and sadly, some of the stuff like Sims goes to the wayside. I just needed a break from all the drama. Sometimes I forget that this is supposed to be fun, and when I take shit too seriously, my creativity suffers.
However. I would like to say I have been playing Sims 4 again and I am loving it. Two days ago I updated my pose player and figured out how to pose in the Sims 4, which woke up my story writing monster once again.
I found this cool challenge by Shadami, on the Sims 4 forum, called the Seven Deadly Sins challenge, where you play with ghost Sims. You can find the details on her site here. I’m not a real big legacy challenge player, so Shadami’s challenge was right up my alley. Something a little different, with goals other than having families.
So. I also started writing a story for it because my comedic side came out, and I was inspired by the show Lucifer on CBS, well, on Netflix now, LOL. I’m still working on the blog for it, but I wanted you guys who are still left to know what happened to me.
UPDATE: TA-DA: The Seven Ridiculous Sins has been launched!
Love you all,
Household Funds: $3,590
Lot Name: Slipshod Mesquite
Lot Size: 40×30
Lifetime Aspiration: Joke Star
Traits: Gregarious, Ambitious, Outgoing, Goofball
Age: Young Adult
The challenge is basically the same as the Sims 3 version, pick a town that you want to play, pick a townie household and make over the Sims.
Here’s the link to the Sims 3 rules. I found some things in gameplay that are different between TS3 and TS4, so those differences will be listed below as the TS4 rules.
Beginning the Challenge
- Since there really isn’t a way to “Select a Household” in TS4, just place a Sim in the world, and then switch to the townie Sim. The Sim you place can be friends with the townie, but may not marry or procreate with the townie. This is because this challenge is about making over the townies, so only townies are playable.
I recently got a new updated computer, my old one was having trouble playing the Sims after 8 years of me having it. It was just running out of memory every time I tried to play, so that’s why everything I had written went on hiatus. I played TS4 again today and remembered how fun it was.
I’m going to try this challenge with TS4, but I’m not sure I’ll be writing a story with it since I’m not as seasoned with the picture taking and the poses as I am with TS3. I will be updating this page with the TS4 worlds and households for reference in case anyone wants to try this challenge.
- Del Sol Valley – 3 households
- Oasis Springs – 4 households
- San Myshuno – 8 households
- Willow Creek – 4 households
