On Sim Memory

I'm just checking in to say I am working on Chapter 2, and hoping to get it posted within this next week. While the first chapter focused on Nina, this next one will be taking a look into Dina's head. There'll be some backstory on their "family history" and why Nina's aspiration level was so low in Chapter 1.

Also, angst. I wasn't trying to woobify them, I swear, but it's built right into their memories!

Why am I crying at my own Sims pictures?

Speaking of which, my initial inspiration for this story came from two of Dina's memories, both of which seem to be pretty large errors on Maxis's part. Dina's story will be a way of explaining those memories in a way that makes sense without being creepy. I don't feel too bad taking liberties because all the premades' memories contain inconsistencies (apparently Skip impregnated Brandi post-mortem?). I kind of think The Sims is all about screwing around with canon anyway, by the very nature of the game. I mean, the creators sure like to screw around with it.

One of those memories is an event that will occur in the next chapter. There are probably enough clues in what I've previously posted for you to guess what it is...

Don't think that'll be a problem lol. The first chapter was awesome. :D

I'm not usually one for changing canon stuff, but you're right in that you've gotta do something when it doesn't make sense!

Can't wait for chapter 2, so I hope you get the time to work on it that you need. :D

Well, since this canon is inconsistent, I'm kind of picking and choosing from the different ones. And really, what I'm planning is more altering the untold backstory to something the creators definitely didn't intend, but in a way that doesn't necessarily contradict anything. In fact, it's kind of fixing the contradictions that are already there. [/ridiculously cryptic language]

I think I have an idea of what you're talking about. I won't give anything away, but I'll see if I'm on the right track once the next chapter is out.

Hmmm, does your hypothesis have anything to do with one of the words in the story's title?
Jan. 25th, 2011 12:32 am (UTC)
Yep... I can't wait to see how you'll manage to pull that off...

A little lost but can't wait for Chapter 2!
