This is my Sims 2 blog. I've got one for Sims 3 as well - tigerannesims - although that one is a bit... umm, and I'm going to write new text for all the entries, some day.

I'm NOT the same person as the Norwegian blogger known as Tiger Anne.

Fair bit of warning, right off the bat: I'm a horrible person, and have a rather dark sense of humor. A lot of the jokes I make, revolve around people behaving and talking in ways that would never be anywhere near acceptable in real life. Because this is Sims we're talking about, it happens very often! I also, don't really, know, where to put commas all the time.

LiveJournal is where I come to be evil, so expect the worst at all times. I'm not kidding.

I play a bazillion Legacy Challenges in Sims 2. (Because I'm crazy.) If you're unfamiliar with the term, it basically means that you start out with a super-poor founder, and play their family through 10 generations. In every generation there is an Heir, who's the one you choose to continue the family. You're supposed to follow a set of rules, and keep scores, etc. but I can't be hazzled to do that.

The Magpie Prettacy Uglacy is my oldest Legacy. A Prettacy is when you start with a really hideous founder, and try to make the descendents get prettier with each new generation. The Mags are a huge clan of Troll/Human hybrids who live in a mansion and are filthy rich. They used to be poor as dirt, though. Southern Mountain Trolls are recognized by their long noses and eye-stalks. Pretty is boring. Now they're an UGLACY!

Here there be Trolls!

The MacAvoy ISBI was started soon after the Magpies, and the two families have intermarried a bit. ISBI means "Im Surrounded By Idiots", and you're only allowed to control one single Sim at any time. Which one is the controllable changes once per generation. The rest of the family have to take care of their own needs, which TS2 Sims are known not to be very good at.

Watch the Macs flail about here! :D

The Starbloom Travecy is a gigantic joke. It's got a more story-driven feeling than the other two, and for once I follow the rules! It's basically a parody on all the bad stories I've ever read. Short summary of the plot: Aylatani is beautiful. She's forced to marry Phil, who's an axe-murderer, and much tragedy. The villain is a time-traveller named Edgar, who's ugly. He bribes the doctors who preform Aylatani's plastic surgery into making her ugly too. Her daughter doesn't recognize her, and thinks she's an imposter who has killed her mother. Then it gets very complicated. This tragic story of misery and woe is brought to us by The Narrator, who must remain nameless for the sake of her Grandmother's reputation.

You can read about all their suffering here.

The spare updates are known as the Nightinwolf Chronicles.

The Edgarcy - AKA the Bogweed Prettacy, is my newest legacy. It's founded by Edgar and Aylatani (who was born ugly, this time). As usual, it's the Narrator who tells the tale. This time, they find themselves in an almost deserted post-apocalyptic wasteland, where they have to deal with their hostile elven neighbour and lots of people who seem to know more about them than they know about themselves.

The Edgarcy can be found here.

The Scheiler Uglacy is a collaboration between sammyfrog and myself. In a much happier life, Liranda Starbloom married Ian Scheiler, and this is the story of their descendants. Narrated by MK'la and Narrator, it has a positive message of love, acceptance and organic farming.

I should probably point out that I made the *ugly* Sims in this challenge to poke fun of certain aesthetic trends I've seen on Simblr (Sims-themed Tumblr), and NOT to mock any real human beings.

The Index can be found here.

The Asylum Challenge, which I keep forgetting that I'm playing, is the origin of characters like Petunia, Esso the Assassin, Monrad, Ethan and Aniya. Edit: This challenge is finished! :)

Most cheaty Asylum ever.

The Athertons was my first challenge. It was an aging-off "ISBI", with a teen in charge for extra problems. If you're new, and want to read my entire blog chronologically, this is where it started.

The Athertons are kind of dumb.

I can never guarantee that you will not want to strangle me after reading any given entry. You must read at your own risk.

I've been thinking about updating the OC questionaire for a while. Some of the questions were out of order, others could have been worded differently or split into two separate ones. I think the questions tie better into each other, the way they're organized now. The old Question 3, asking if the character is human, has been removed. :D

Edit: This post should be public, because I intended to share this. x) I also re-arranged the questions a little, because I think the information on special abilities or disabilities, and things that make their stories interesting, should come earlier. All the questions on personal relationships tend to refer to that info.

Hopefully this will make the profiles more versatile.Collapse )

Hiiiiyua guys!!! This is me, Raelynn. Ya girl the Narrator! Guess what? I found a lot of pictures of the Scheilers that I hadn't posted yet. This time it's a Bonus Round, and we're going to find out what Paloma, Carlos and Studs & Co have been up to at their Orchard.

Read all about it here!Collapse )

Okay, so I've had a looong break from Simming, and have been preoccupied with some other stuff. Then I installed TS2, but had some directory troubles because of this computer having two hard-drives, and TS2 not knowing how to deal with that. Anyway, I found a workaround that seems to have worked. (It involved a command prompt, and was very scary.)

Now I have a little mystery on my hands, though. The first backup I put in, after getting things working, wasn't current. I made a new copy of the files on my laptop yesterday, and let those overwrite the previous ones. I've had the Scheiler lots open on the laptop, and I've seen with my own eyes that everything is just as I left it. There hasn't been any loss of anything. However... The files I copied off of it, and transferred to the desktop computer, aren't there? When I opened the Orchard lot on my desktop, the family portrait showed an earlier version of the family, minus the two youngest children. Then the lot crashed, yay...

I'm going to have to investigate a bit about what's going on here, but there could be Scheiler updates, and maybe even... Starblooms in the future. And you know something? I found a lot of pictures from last year, when I played the family at the Orchard. There's probably enough for an update there already. So no matter how uncooperative my game's gonna want to be, there's most likely something coming... suddenly.

HiiIiiii I'm the Narreator, and I want to show ya'll something. We haven't heard from the Starblooms in a long time, and that's because they're planning something very devious and daring.


Phil is looking very paranoid.

He kind of looks like he just broke reality.Collapse )

If anyone wondered how long it would take me to get tired of only having pretty DAZ Studio models, the answer is "Not very." Narrator wants to say a few words.


Here's Edgar. He's in disguise, so no one can recognise him. He's trimmed his beard and plucked his eyebrows, and wears a trucker hat so no one can see that he's bald. Please don't tell anyone that you know this is Edgar.

That would make him mad.Collapse )

Sooo... I have no idea where the M&G disc is hiding. x( I miss my Sims so much, I'm recreating them in HD.


Can you tell who it's supposed to be?

One more picture under the cut.Collapse )

For some reason I can't explain rationally, I've been binge-watching toy opening videos since December. Personally, I'm not the type to collect physical toys, because they take up space, but I sure like digital ones. So here are a few (dozen) avatars I've made on the Subeta pet site. It's kind of like Neopets, but with older members, better art and less dramaz.

I wish I had all these clothes in real life.Collapse )

So the bad news is that I can't remember where I've stored my Mansion & Garden disc. The good news is that it must be in this room or the next. Sims and madness is coming to this LJ, somehow. In the mean time, here's Aubrey. She keeps getting prettier.
