Behind the scenes – 7.8

I was originally going to put the first ones at the end of chapter 7.8, but then the random things kept accumulating and I decided it’d be better if I just made a post solely for this.

The first thing was when James  grew up XD


I laughed so hard! Especially with his ‘I am not okay with this face’

I wasn’t the only one who found this funny either;

Alec laughs

Next up was the wedding! It was on a seriously HOT summer day, and I hadn’t realized it, but on some other game I set the temperature at something like 39 degrees, so everyone was burning up pretty fast. I hadn’t realized how fast until James’ ass caught on fire.

james on fire

At first I dismissed it as a vampire thing so I kept checking the vampire’s status to make sure no one else burned up again. But apparently it wasn’t that cause Lance was next to catch on fire.

two times the charm

Almost two seconds later Annabeth caught on fire as well!

guest on fire!

I had to press pause and fix everyone before they started catching on fire too! I obviously changed the temperature to avoid any more uncontrolled fires…XD

After that I thought the wedding would go smoothly but apparently Simon and Zyla weren’t even engaged yet! (guess I forgot) So I had to build them up to it, and when Simon proposed…

zyla refuses

Zyla refused him! All because she’s an insane unpredictable sim! (she really has the insane trait) So I got her to propose to avoid any more confusion. Needless to say Simon was pretty heartbroken.

AS IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH. Some odd balls started showing up.

kord joins

Can’t recognize him? That’s because a while ago he burned up like the rest, but he was way far in town and my camera zoomed in on him (he had quite the circle of spectators too as he burned) at a VERY critical moment.

Kord (yeah that’s kord) then decided to ruin a screenshot because he felt the need to come with an umbrella (its not even raining!) and throw rice at Zyla and Simon.

YOU WEREN’T INVITED KORD. You ditched remember? Go away.

Oh and it’s not over.

Then I had to have Lance and James hug.


teen adult hugs

I died trying to get a screenshot and eventually gave up and just took a back view. But nonetheless I tried enough times for James to finally have his fill of hugging his big bro.

hug- no

Lance was really heartbroken at the rejection XD

sad face

That’s pretty all I have XD

So now I’ll pamper you guys with a pic of all the kids cause we didn’t really get to see Nix or Alec.


I wanted to take a serious pic of Aliska but she went and made this face so I kept it.



That’s all folks XD

    wahahahahahahhaa… what a wedding! It’s like they were all conspiring against you…

    “Let’s make it difficult… We’ve had enough of all the trouble we’ve had to go through… Everyone, catch fire!”

    This chapter… This was amazing. I adore chapters like these only because I can totally relate. So many butt-fires and mishaps… It’s just the life of a writer. Everyone thinks everything goes so smoothly when in reality you’re ripping your hair out.
    I did a wedding in Monte Vista once, ages ago. The bride brought her toddler daughter who wasn’t having any of it, one of the bride’s sisters was pregnant and threw up in the middle of the cake cutting (can’t say I blame her, I mean, that pregnancy nausea though…). Where was the pregnant sister’s adoring husband? Getting the shit slapped out of him by her other sister plus a random Townie because he accidentally cheated on both of them with his wife (I didn’t know, he was a Townie that when he married and moved in came with all that baggage attached, though I did rectify that as soon as he moved in… Yet the girls were still bitter).
    The rest of the guests were sunbathing or going swimming in the ocean because… This was after the IP patch and that was sim crack.
    Anyways, sorry for the tangent (again). I can just relate so much…

      oh my god just so many things happen behind the scenes! It’s ridiculous!
      But I cant *really* complain, because half the time it’s a way for my characters to tell me what needs to be done.
      NOt the buttfire thing obviously!
      But recently, the plot was fine there was nothing wrong with it, but one of my characters decided I needed to add a townie to the story, by finding a really decent one in the graveyard and just chatted her up. I hadn’t realized I needed this townie, but now that I do she’s become such a pivotable part of the plot I can’t imagine it without her!
      All these little things all the time. It’s gotten to the point where I usually trust what my game tries to tell me. (I mean, without my game I would’ve completely forgotten a certain character who was just crashing at the house. my gods I’m so ashamed of that). So yeah, I told my game if my child gets hit by a car crossing the road it WILL become cannon (darn kid never checks left and right anyways. he has it coming). So far it hasn’t happened though. My game must be feeling merciful.

        Oh my gosh, I swear my game knows things before I do.
        Collab partner and I were doing some test runs of some of our Sims we planned on becoming couples before we launched my rewrite and two the couples were having issues. They seemed to get along so well for a while and then the man in one of the couples started randomly yelling at the woman (and this was heartbreaking to me because my lady was super adorable). Mpart told me to change his traits, that we would make this work. We fiddled almost all night until we had hammered out his personality to where he wouldn’t make my sweet, adorable (name redacted for spoiler purposes) cry. Ok, well let’s say it foreshadowed so much.
        Another of those couples was my amazing guy going after one of mpart’s ladies and he wasn’t having any of it. Turns out she was a raging bitch and he sensed it before we did. XD
        Anyways, I swear these sims do hilarious things sometimes that I just turn free will on and see what they do. Sometimes they do really adorable things too. I have another story in pre-pre-production (it’s ready, I’m waiting to launch it after SotN) where I’m just letting my Sims be free and mother and father were talking care of twins when the father just looked at his wife from across their cribs and stared at her while smiling and it was just so adorable..
        I’m having that moment again – where the hell did I get here from? (Sighs) just ride the tangent coaster. Just… Ride away and stop asking questions, self.

          Tangents are a must-have item on my bucket list! Well, if I had a bucket list… If I had any list at all really… Must remember to make a list! Do you think I need to make a list of lists that I need to remember?!?

          And, now that I’ve hopefully gotten a chuckle or a smile outta ya, I want those spoilers, Liv!!! If you can’t send them on Carl’s because of the language filter, you can email me. Let me know so I can send you my address!

            Put it on your list to make another list. XD It’s what I do. Lists have become my life. I used to hate them so much and now I *need* them to function.
            Breathe? Check.
            Get out of bed? Unfortunate Check.
            Oh I sent those spoilers to you already. About our unfortunate sinking ship (I had just messaged you about that) but that was actually the first couple. It was so heartbreaking watching my little (name redacted) cry after she would try to talk to him and he would yell at her. 😥
            The second couple? It was a certain Siren of Mparts and a Pirate of mine.
            Mpart never made it that far in her original though, but that Siren of hers took a nasty turn for the worse and it is what’s caused her to have to walk away from her story for so long. I’ll give you the full details on Carls. XD As usual. XD

          About yesterday where I wanted two sims to high five and even though they’re good friends, the girl wouldn’t accept the high five unless she initiated it AND REALLY IN A WAY, this is some major foreshadowing of future stuff I’ve been thinking about.

          Of course when it happened though I was laughing in frustration because of the failed high fives we talked about the other day, wondering if this is where this was going XD

          Tangents, if you can’t beat ’em join them
          *throws pillow at Dev before he can make a comment on my lame quote*


          • Livvielove says:

            YES. I love when that happens… hate it but love it at the same time.
            One of these days you’ll get one of those high fives, and I’ll see it, and it’ll be our inside-joke… XD
            Oh Dev. He’ll still make the comment anyways. I don’t even know him and I can’t imagine him just letting that slide. XD

              Yeah, I’ll be like (LOOK LIVVIE they don’t know how to high five) in the author’s note 😛

              Indeed, he didn’t, he just set the pillow down and shook his head at me before leaving like a “so immature, not even worth it” kind of shake D:<

                XD I look forward to that day with great glee. Either that or my author’s note will call out to you: “Look! Look at this! They did it!”
                Oh Dev… just remember that mind made you. XD So you’re JUST as immature. Take THAT.

                  His face had a moment of “did she just say that” before switching to his usual indifference.
                  It was wonderful and me laughing at him chased him away XD

                    Dev? I’m so lost… I feel like the kid in the playground who’s 2 friends decided they liked each other more than the kid that introduced them 😦 don’t mind me, having a low bipolar moment…

                      Ahhh Devon is a very old character of mine LIKE OLD, from the times I used to roleplay with friends.
                      With Livvie and Majnun talking, Devon sort of resurfaced -_-‘
                      Don’t be mad Steph, I never really found a good reason to mention it since he’s not important on a Light the way to heaven level
                      If you’re interested, I drew him a few years ago:

                      I’m not mad! Would never be mad at 2 of my all time favourite people! Was just feeling left out, and as we both know, my personal insecurities make me act like an attention whore at times! See, like that comment right there… All I heard was me me me me me me •choir flashbacks•

  3. LMAO, these kinds of chapters are my favourite. Butt fires and party crashers and insane sims, zomg. I have never seen a sim catch on fire from the sun, maybe that’s been patched out? Even when they stay out long enough to get sunburned there are no fires… not that I WANT my sims to catch fire, course not.
