Main Story

Chapter 1: Sisters
“Oh, come on, honey! Now’s the chance to make some friends outside me and your own hallucinations!”

Chapter 2: Boys
It was amazing how much friendlier boys were when they weren’t afraid you were going to impregnate them.

Interlude I
“And I’ll be out of your life in a week, so don’t worry about it. I wasn’t expecting a long-term commitment. Were you?”

Chapter 3: Goths
“Oh my, what is that sound that draweth nearer by the second? Is it a violin? Or a banshee foreshadowing someone’s death?”

Chapter 4: Gold Digger
“Unless you're just planning to do him in. In which case, have fun."

Chapter 5: Secrets
“Would you like some cake?”

Chapter 6: Ignorance
I can make you disappear...

Chapter 7: Comfort
"Must be rough being in the supernatural closet."

Interlude II

Chapter 8: Vampires
Vampire-robot/alien-human coffin sex.

Chapter 9: Robots
He’d woken up to the sound of evil laughter, with a thousand questions that were never answered.

Chapter 10: Aliens
I would if it was Bella's octopus.

Chapter 11: Fate
“I see…golden…sparkles.”

Interlude III

Chapter 12: Part 1 - Truth
Acknowledging the issue would be acknowledging she was a threat, and Bella was not going to give her that modicum of power.

Interlude IV

Chapter 12: Part 2 - Apologies
But damned if Titania didn’t occasionally get the urge to turn someone into a frog.

Chapter 13: Pain
I love you anyway.

Interlude V

Chapter 14: Part 1 - Masks
Spectacularly.

Chapter 14: Part 2 - Confession
‘Yes, and your cold metal body. Make love to me, robotman!’

Interlude VI

Short 1: Smalltalk

Chapter 15: Part 1 - Implosion
“Good heavens. In our pure and sacred home?”

Interlude VII

Short 2: Flesh

Chapter 15: Part 2 - Regrets

I love love love your story! It's really imaginative! One question though, where do you get the separate undies from? You know, the ones where you can have them with any top or bottom?
skellington7d
Nov. 19th, 2011 10:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I think I've mostly just made the ones I've shown, but I don't think I have them anymore.

Here's some separated undies:

Hey, I was reading your formspring/twitter and I justed wanted to comment on something (but I don't have any accounts, and this isn't really a question).

In your response about the Don/Dina kiss you said it could've been a kiss on a hand. But the picture in Don's album shows him and Dina kissing (http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Don_Lothario; bottom of the page). It looks like a it was a 'romantic kiss'.

So, yes, I just wanted to point that out, in case you forgot or something. Unless you're disregarding what the albums say, in which case you can ignore my silly little comment. :)
skellington7d
Nov. 27th, 2011 02:36 am (UTC)
I've seen that picture on the wiki, but for some reason I didn't realize it was from the actual game. (I've mainly looked at the Caliente-Goth albums, and it didn't occur to me that Don would also have pictures of them) You're right though, it is. Thanks for pointing that out!

The kiss on the hand comment was more about how an affair in the Sims world (flirting, pecking, wolf-whistling) would not necessarily be considered an affair in real life. In any case, even though that is a "romantic kiss" and an "affair" by the game's standards, in my canon it's just going to be a kiss of gratitude that was misconstrued.

I will be disregarding the album stuff for my story because the base game clothes are so ugly, and I can't stand Dina's original hairstyle. ;) Also, a lot of stuff in the albums contradicts the Sim memories (like the ages of the Curious siblings and Brandi's pregnancy)

Love the story!
Hello there. I'm a bit of a late comer to your story. I just read the whole thing in one sitting and can't wait for the next installment. I did have one quick question. I love all Bella's fabulous hats and have been able to track them all down but one, the small black one with the red feather that she wears in the funeral episode. Do you happen to remember where you got that from?

Re: Love the story!
That's from Adele's masquerade set. It works kind of like the propbox where you add the accessories by clicking on this little mask. Adele's site is no longer up, but you can find it here: http://www.digitalperversion.net/gardenofshadows/index.php?topic=21820.0

Thank you! Glad you like the story.

A Great Story! and A Little Favor...
One magical day I was googling for maxis match hair styles and ran across your page and saw the posting for your story and immediately fall in love with this story. What’s so great about it is, it stays so true to the maxis Pleasentview story line, but then you give us your own twist. I just love it!
With that being said, I’m a big fan of detail and every one of my families have custom family photos (school pic, etc.) and I’ve noticed you have a lot of custom portraits in your Sims homes (i.e. Michael Bachelor family photo) and I was wondering how did you get them to stand that way?

Re: A Great Story! and A Little Favor...
Thank you! I make most of my custom photos by recoloring objects in Sim Pe's photostudio, which is actually pretty easy. I have a tutorial that I made for my friend that explains how to do it: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1TwMIN53lfw3Yl_RyoK4qUKnsx9aLafEwHwTkIqFKVOk/edit

Thanks a lot for this great story! It inspired me to start over with my game, this time with only Maxis Match CC and for the first time ever I'm playing the original Pleasantview characters. It's so funny to see them do what sims do having your story in mind! ;)

Thanks, thanks, thanks bunches!

I just wanted to say that I think your story is awesome. I love your pictures, they inspired me to be more creative and put more work into my own images. I also like your characterization of Bella (and Dina, Nina and the rest too of course) because most of the time she is portrayed as super-nice, perfect and a bit of a Mary Sue, but your way of writing her is much more interesting. Octopus. <3
And those people on simsecret? All the haters are anonymous accounts (I don't have an account on livejournal which is why I'm commenting anonymously) and I don't see that as a coincidence. They hide behind their anonymous-title because they know that if they showed their faces (or well, accounts) everyone would see how pathetic they are and why their pathetic stories don't get as much comments as yours. Not a single one of them have the bravery to step up and say what they think, because they know someone much wiser would get in the comments and crush them. If they were in The Sims 3, their traits would read "Coward" and "Loser". They know that if they were challenged in a debate they would lose, but they still glue themselves to their pathetic opinion.

Oh, and by the way, more red and leopard-patterned shoes would be much appreciated. ;)

Darkened Heart
The story is magical :] just that, I love it!
Thanks for sharing your imaginative way to play this game and interpreting the Pleasantview story :3
Just one question, the eye set that you use in many of your sims, I have some of these in my game, from sims you already updated before (Beatrice, Brigit, Michael, Zephyretta, Bat Fairy, Robin (from last chapter), Robyn (from Good Genes Challenge) and some others...) Will be awesome if you tell me where did you get that eye set, pleasee! :)

Love This Story!
Hey!

I've been reading the story well, for sometime now and have lovedddd it ever since. I didnt comment, not once xD Mostly because I well, didnt have the chance or an account. Anyways, keep up the good work, because the story is fantastic. I love the concepts, and how well you portray each character. [Dina has to be my favourite <3 ]

Cant wait for more from the girls! :)

I absolutely love this story! It's such a fascinating read. I also like that you've made it coherant and understandable for those of us who have never played with the premades. I always thought they were so dull but you bring them to life :)

Sep. 12th, 2012 06:59 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad it's understandable even for people who don't know the premades. I've tried to put a unique spin on the Maxis stories. :D
