01. Favourite pre-made.
Dina and Nina Caliente, of course! I do think they were intended to be shady by the game designers, but that doesn't mean I have to play them that way!

02. Pre-made you dislike.
I have trouble disliking any of them. I'm not a hateful person!

03. Favourite non-playable.
The Twikki Island Witch Doctor. If I could marry him to my self-sim, I would.

04. Favourite unpopular or neglected pre-made.
The freakin' Tricou family! Why hasn't EVERYONE written about them?

05. Favourite pre-made family/household.

06. Pre-made sim or household you can't get interested in.
The Grunts. It's hard for me to get into a household with no female characters around.

07. Favourite and/or least favourite neighbourhood.
Pleasantview/Strangetown are tied for my favorite. I could never really get into Desiderata Valley.

08. Most intriguing pre-made sim or sim mystery.
It's a tie between Olive Specter and the House of Fallen Trees.

09. Unpopular opinion about a pre-made.
Dina is nicer than Mortimer, Cassandra, Pascal, PT9, and just as nice as Brandi Broke. Nina is extremely shy, neat and serious. In fact, she's just as shy as Cassandra, neater, and much more serious.

...Oh wait. Those are canon according to their personality points. HMMMM...

Also, my version of Nina is not somebody who would be okay with being someone's dirty little secret, so I believe the Don/Nina makeout involved some deception on Don's part.

10. Favourite fanon.
I love Strange Tomato's take on Ripp/Ophelia/Johnny, Frances/Beau, and Lucy/Tank.

11. Popular fanon you disagree with.
Angela is not the mean girl who picked on you in high school and Lilith is not the Speshulest Snowflake.

12. Favourite own head-canon that isn't backed up by canon.
Mary-Sue and Gvaudoin were BFF's before the latter got sent to an early grave. Oh, and Malcolm Landgraab is the Simlish version of Bruce Wayne!

You see, when I first saw this picture I thought his grandpa was his butler...

13. Favourite canon/canonish pairing.
DINA/MICHAEL! I also like Bella/Mortimer and Jenny/PT9.

14. Favourite crack pairing.
simcerly has got me hooked on Alexangela (Alexandra/Angela), and I also dig Tara Kat/Malcolm Landgraab.

15. Most outrageous romance sim, aka who's nailed the most sims in your game.
Jon Smith Tricou, though technically he's only a romance secondary. ;) But that is one way to get a big family!

16. Pre-made you see as gay, bi, asexual, etc.
I haven't made anyone asexual yet, but I haven't played everyone in my Uberhood yet. Alexander and Fricorith are gay. Alexandra, Angela, and Lilith are bisexual.

17. Favourite non-romantic relationship.
Dina and Nina, definitely. They have an unbreakable bond in my opinion and nothing could ever come between them.

18. Pre-made who's most like you.
Cassandra Goth for her shyness/playfulness, Tara Kat for her geeky cat-ladyness.

19. Premade whose look you like (not necessarily who you think is beautiful).
Nervous Subject, Chastity Gere, all of the Tricou women, Tara Kat, Alexandra, Titania, Olive Specter

20. Hottest pre-made.
Jennicor Tricou

Poor Malcolm Landgraab is underestimated, I guess. I play with him and he is funny but a serious businessman. I like him a lot. He is married with Florence DelaRosa in my game, another underestimated sim.
I think Francis Worth III is totally gay. In my game he is married with the resurrected Fricorith Tricou. They have 4 kids, all boys.
I love Gvaudoin. She is married with a sim made by my friend NC (a goth guy) and have 6 kids but she is the one who rules her house. I think she have too much personality and I don't see her as a "obedient submissive wife".

Man, you're making me wish to play House of the Fallen Trees! I think most people never even played them since they're, you know, dead. I don't know what the hell happened, but all the graves ahd urns in my Uberhood are gone... I just noticed one day. :/ I'll have to download them or something, because your story and this is really making me want to play them.

As for 11 - preach it girl! :P It's not the love for Lilith that bothers me (I love her to pieces myself, and I do think he has a lot of issues, and she's not having an easy time even if she does have all the external predispositions to be happy), but I hate it when people turn on Angela for it. It's pretty obvious that Lilith's problems are internal, and there's nothing to suggest that Angela's anything but a really decent, down to earth girl.

I've seen Malcolm Landgraab=Bruce Wayne somwhere before. You probably mentioned it or something. It's really funny and completely different from what I see him as (read: a total sleezbag). I made over Club Dante into this really fancy, tacky, expensive private club where rich, shady people come to make their shady deals, and that's about how I see Malcom himself.

Btw, I know I say it all the time, but I love what you turned Dina and Nina into.
Jul. 5th, 2011 11:00 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I like Lilith but I really don't like what a lot the fandom has done to her. Especially when it involves bashing her mother and sister for being "Mary Sues" while turning Lilith into a punk rock princess who every premade man/boy is in love with.

I just started up an uberhood for fun and I'm having so much fun making Malcolm into a superhero. It's a plot bunny that had to be looked into!

Meh, sometimes canon doesn't pay enough attention to canon. Silly Maxis.

LOL, I never thought of Malcom as a Bruce Wayne type!

Heehee, geeky cat-ladyness!

Jul. 5th, 2011 11:05 pm (UTC)
Aww the Tricou! They totally need more love! <3
Now I regret not adding them on the biggest mystery question, lol, but having a kid with a Grim Reaper wins imo! XD
Jul. 5th, 2011 11:38 pm (UTC)
I love your "WTF Simmers look at the personality points/bios" posts. Fanon has a certain amount disbelief to it, doesn't it? (Especially about Angela, she's a wannabe boat captain, not some bitchy cheerleader)
Jul. 5th, 2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
To be fair, the actual creators of the game don't seem to pay too much attention to those things either!

Maybe she's your neighborhood shover? There are certain Sims in a neighborhood that will come over shove people if they look at their house through a telescope during the day. Nina does only have 4 nice points, but so do Morty and Cassandra. :)

THIS IS SO MUCH. Another thing is, it's not like these stereotypes don't exist canonly. I'm looking at you, Sim State University. The Sorority (and the Bright Household, does it remind you of anything, simmers? Mean Girls.

Jul. 6th, 2011 01:03 am (UTC)
Oooh, I love the House of Fallen Trees :)
Jul. 6th, 2011 07:43 am (UTC)
This makes me so sad that I never really played the premade families. I have no head-canon of them. So I'm learning about them from all you amazing people who write about them instead :)
Jul. 6th, 2011 09:18 am (UTC)
Totally agree about Angela. Leave her alone guys.

Also much love for Bruce Wayne Malcolm. That would've made him so much more awesome.
Jul. 6th, 2011 09:38 am (UTC)
When I first loaded his house I was searching all over for a batcave. Then I realized he'd probably have better fandom reputation if he had one! There's definitely room under his house though; I'll have to build one in my uberhood!

11 and 12 - Heh, Lilith is my Uberhood's Captain Hero (or will be: I just restarted). She nearly always rolls the LTW in my game, and what with Angela's tendency to roll Media Magnate, well... let's just say the combination appeals.

Speshul snowflake not so much, though. Man, I should get on and write that story.

Speaking of Maxis canon, it always amazes me how many people miss that Cassandra and Mary-Sue are BFFs.

I'm sure you're sick of hearing this, but I love your Dina and Nina too.
Jul. 6th, 2011 07:55 pm (UTC)
That is a pretty awesome combination!

The Cassandra/Mary Sue thing is interesting to me because they were childhood best friends despite a very large age gap! But despite the animosity between her and her daughter, clearly Mary Sue is not entirely anti-Goth. ;)

Aww, thanks!
Jul. 6th, 2011 09:38 pm (UTC)
Thanks to you I play Tricous ALL the time XD Kvornan and Kiernan are just the best :P

9. My Nina always have hard times with her love interests. I think she is really cute and I hate what maxis did to her and Dina. They look like dark characters :/

13. DINAxMICHAEL FTW also BellaxMorty!! In my game Dina collects money to resurrect Mike .. They are so cute together :)

Jul. 6th, 2011 10:01 pm (UTC)
04. Well... until you started writing about them, I didn't even know they existed, for one. :I I had never gone to Gothier Green Lawns. I don't know how many other players managed to miss it.

12. This is so beautiful to me. Is he more of an Adam West Batman, or a modern, no-fun-allowed, breathing-in-space Batman? What's his pseudonym? Does he have a sidekick?

Jul. 7th, 2011 04:14 am (UTC)
I'm thinking...Llama-man? And besides Katwoman, we can have Rose Greenman as a Poison Ivy expy. Chester could be his sidekick! I need an elder Sim to be his dutiful butler though.

I LOVE Dina and always wondered why people hated her in the game. Then again in my head!canon Bella left her famiy on her own, so she's kinda a bitch. Hahaha, I'm weird.
Jul. 7th, 2011 12:40 am (UTC)
Gyah, stupid computer.

I also play the Pleasant twins as not both acting out in their own way in my game, I mean one's dating the local 'bad boy' while the other is always off doing her own thing. Then again in my game Lilith gets to go to college while her sister ends up having a kid and marrying quickly. So maybe I am giving into the Angela hate?

I just recently reset my Pleasantview...again. and I agree with you. Although it's not the way I initially played them, if you go off their personality points Dina is REALLY nice and Nina horribly shy. I added popularity as Dina's second and Knowledge as Nina's to hopefully convey that in their wants more.
Jul. 7th, 2011 05:33 am (UTC)
I think knowledge is the perfect secondary for Nina, just based on her personality type. I made Dina a pleasure secondary since she's so playful (ever seen her play in the bathtub?), but I can see her as popularity too since she's extremely outgoing. The sisters' personality points add up to an even ten on each score, so they really are complete opposites!
