I can’t believe I was nominated for this award twice! I’m truly flattered, as it doesn’t happen to me often. So thank you Bee/JesseSue at Stories by Bee for thinking of my blog! Hers are awesome (yes – in plural, because she’s not only the author of the Bell Legacy, but also the talented creator on Poses by Bee). Her legacy story is very true to life: I especially like Sun, who is aptly pictured as a modern, sensitive woman and mother! If you haven’t checked it out yet, it should become top of your “to do” list!
The rules for the Sunshine Blogger Award:
In a blog post, thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

Bee’s Questions To Me
1. What is your favourite job/career in the Sims and why?
There are several, but I think the criminal career is fun – being an honest citizen myself I find it rewarding to steal things and peek through windows without getting caught!
Second comes Firefighter – it’s challenging, and that’s what makes it interesting to achieve!
2. What is your least favourite job/career in the Sims and why?
I don’t particularly like the political career – I have never played it because I think it’s quite boring, what with the fundraising and convincing…
3. Have you played any challenges in the game and is your story based on a challenge?
I have tried to play a legacy, the standard kind where you start out with a lone sim and an empty lot. I never got farther than the founder generation, because I got side-tracked when I started writing about the Grey Witches…
4. Do you have a favourite character and are they in your current story?
I love my Grey witches – Taïga, Granny, even Missy! And then there’s Derek, who I would place top of the list!
5. Have you ever made a sim-self of yourself and/or family/romantic interests?
How did that turn out?
My simself is my blog avatar, and the same I use on the forums. But I have never used my simself in the game, apart from taking some pictures to thank CravenLestat for making me special patterns! I guess it would get too personal, and I would hate to see me drown or something!
6. What is the one thing you refuse to do while playing this game? (for example, play supernaturals, the criminal career, kill a sim etc)
I think I’m quite open to just about anything! Killing sims, setting houses on fire, thieving and murdering – it’s just a game after all. But I draw my limits when it comes to child abuse.
7. What is your favorite world and why?
That’s a difficult question with several answers! When it comes to EA’s worlds I have to say Sunlit Tides. It’s extremely well done; the world, the builds, the sims are perfect. I haven’t had the opportunity to use it in my story yet, but I will.
Then there are the custom worlds with many wonderful creators, but I think Nilxis’s worlds are above the lot. Especially Ziwa Bonde, which I have used two years ago, but the pictures aren’t yet published in my story…
(Well, now they are! Published, I mean.)
I can’t continue on to the next question without adding my own world – Twin Towns – as it’s the one I currently use in the Grey Witches!
8. Have you ever been caught by the Kraken in the cave? Fought a shark?
Never! I own the store, but I realize I haven’t got around to use half of it! Playing in Isla Paradiso is on the “to do” list!
9. Have you ever had a sim child die in game unexpectedly?
No. I don’t like having kids I play get hurt. But the social services have taken away kids and I guess it’s a kind of death as they are impossible to get back again!
10. How many hours a week do you play the game?
I don’t play on a regular basis, I only go in game to take pictures for my story. Last pics were about ten days ago… I realize I have quite a busy RL schedule!
(Gaah! Quite has turned to very…)
11. If you could go back and start your story from the beginning to take a different path or fix some mistakes, would you?
Different path, no. But I have rewritten the first chapters to fill them up some, as they were basically copied-pasted from the old sims forum. Then it became an osession, so now I have rewritten and made new pictures for 56 chapters out of 60!
(When I post this, it is actually the whole first part, 61 chapters, that has been rewritten…)
