So if you’ve ever seen my erotic pose sets, you’ve seen this guy and that girl. And if you’ve ever wondered whom they might be (besides some insatiably horny goats!), that sim is my simself, Rosalind King, and that guy is Connor Frio, whom some among you may recognize if you’re not in the habit of immediately blowing all of the townies in Sunset Valley to smithereens with AwesomeMod or MasterController.
Connor and Rosalind have a long, rather bizarre history that I will tell you about in-depth (later; it’s a whole long story). What you really need to know is that when I began playing Sims 3, I made a sim of myself and a sim of my husband, and let them run wild in town in the hopes that they might meet autonomously. Well, sim-me did NOT meet my husband, even though she seemed to meet every other man in town! I forced their hands and made them meet. Sim-me hit it off sweetly with sim-husband, they talked, they laughed, I proposed.
… he turned me down flat. I laughed; Sim-me wept for days.
After that I succumbed to the cycle of “game corruption/reinstall/scream” for a while and lost track of Rosalind. When I got her back, I decided to write a longer, more involved story about her and whomever she met and hit it off with in Sunset Valley. It was touch-and-go with about five different guys (including Jared Frio … !!!), but in the end, she overcame Connor’s natural shyness and aloofness. And they’ve been making whoopie ever since. :D
And there’s my first Tumblr post for ya. Something on the verge of being NSFW. Awesome!
LOL, I still giggle about that story with your sim-husband. XD Anyway, welcome to tumblr, splad! I’m so glad that we finally talked you into joining. =D
To any other simblrs out there, spladoum is an amazing pose creator and clothing mesher, as well as a good friend of mine. If you follow her, I promise you y’all won’t regret it. <3
Some outtakes that I couldn’t fit into the story. I like the third one the best with Victoria falling on top of the diving board (…and Stacy), but I must say that these girls are absolutely hysterical. Between Darya’s temper, Anja’s competitive streak, and Chloe’s penchant for swimming in the rain, I am having a blast playing this save. It’s the most fun I’ve had with TS3 in ages. =D
The “official” scores from the Episode 1 group date. Alexander used the “Consider Attractiveness” interaction on each of the girls, and the one who ranked the highest won the private date. Honestly, I think Anja was just as surprised as I was that she did so well, as she and Alex aren’t the most compatible in terms of traits alone. However, it’s one of my NRaas mods that adds this feature (at least, I think so anyway), and I’m not entirely sure what factors are used to calculate the number score. She doesn’t seem too thrilled about it though, does she? XD
At the end of the afternoon, Alexander asks all the ladies to meet him in the living room.
“Now that I’ve had a chance to introduce myself and speak with each one of you individually, I have come to a de-”
Alexander stops short and frowns. None of the girls seem to be listening to a word he says. Lowering his voice, he turns to the one woman who is paying attention.
“I was going to announce this to the group, but honestly you’re the only one who needs to hear it. Anja, you seem like a really interesting person, and I’d love to get to know you better. Would you like to go on a date with me this evening?”
Alexander begins talking trash again, but this time Majda is his unfortunate target. She handles it noticeably worse than Briellen, and with a sarcastic eye roll she briskly strides away.
Stacy’s visit goes quite well, however, and her funny faces brighten Alexander’s largely unsuccessful afternoon. In fact, of all the girls, she makes the greatest effort to get to know Alex, and by the end of their chat he feels like he’s talking to an old friend.
Likewise, Mack’s sense of humor really stands out to Alexander, and he genuinely appreciates her outgoing, charismatic nature. Still, she seems preoccupied during their conversation, and she soon rushes off to “take care of something” (i.e. she really had to pee…).
so funny story my last name irl is buckley and it's what i go by haha funny right?
Buckley is my dog’s name, actually. He was named after the economist, William F. Buckley. =)
Here’s a painting of him that a lady in my old neighborhood made. It wasn’t the final product, but it’s the only digital copy of it that I can find right now. XD
Lori turns out to be quite chatty at first, but the subject of her previous romantic relationships fails to hold Alexander’s interest for long. After the initial conversation dies down, an awkward silence quickly settles in, and they soon part ways.
Maria tries to talk with him about the latest romance movie to hit theaters, but Alexander really isn’t all that into chick flicks, so once again the chat doesn’t get much past the small talk phase.
He and Teyah, however, spend the better part of an hour engrossed in a long discussion about the failing education system in Sim Nation, and she tells him all about her dream of becoming a teacher someday.
“I can’t afford to go to university yet, but one day I will,” she declares resolutely. “I want to help children reach their potential, to show them that intelligence and brains are gifts to be nurtured, not flaws to be embarrassed about. And I will get there. I just have to find a way to pay for it first.”
Alexander frowns as a nauseating lump of guilt forms in the pit of his stomach. Growing up in the welfare system, he never knew the luxuries of wealth, but now, after years of working his way up from the bottom, he has more money than he could possibly spend in a dozen lifetimes. And what does he do with it? Hoard it away in the safety of his bank account like the greedy bastard he knows he is.
“You’ll make an excellent teacher someday,” he murmurs distractedly before wandering off to speak with another one of the ladies.
Fresh off his talk with Teyah and in desperate need of an ego boost, Alexander uses his time with Victoria to boast about his many accomplishments. Victoria could care less, though, and as soon as an opportunity presents itself she makes her excuses and leaves.
Briellen is up next, and she and Alex spend a delightful twenty minutes together talking about… trash. (Trash talking? ^_^) Nevertheless, Brie seems to find Alexander’s choice of topic amusing, and they hit it off quite well.
Darya, on the other hand, has little tolerance for idle chatter, and she wastes no time cutting to the chase.
“I need a man who can keep up with me,” she explains, her forceful voice full of intensity and passion. “I’m picky, you see? I could have my choice of any guy I want, but I don’t want just any guy. I want the right guy. Which you might be, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see about that,” she says as she eyes him critically.
Céleste also proves to be quite adept at steering the conversation her way, and while Alexander knows absolutely nothing about photography the pretty blonde makes the art form come alive with her fascinating stories and vivid descriptions.
“I normally prefer to photograph landscape scenes and architecture, but if you’d like I’ll do a shoot with you sometime to show you how it’s done,” she tells him with a flirty grin.
“Yeah, any time,” he smirks, glancing back at her as he saunters away to speak with his next
“You like photography?! PHOTOGRAPHY?!” Chloe shakes her head in disgust. “A static, lifeless picture can never compare to the beauty of watching a dancer perform live on stage,” she exclaims irately. “Any boyfriend of mine would have to understand that.”
Alexander blinks, feeling stunned by sweet little Chloe’s sudden outburst. All he’d done was compare her passion for ballet to Céleste’s enthusiasm for picture taking, but she seemed quite insulted by it. Alex makes a mental note to watch out for the petite ballerina in the future. Despite her small stature, she is downright terrifying when she gets angry.
Alexander approaches Anja first. She eyes him suspiciously as he makes his way toward her, but to her surprise the conversation flows easily between them.
“You found out about your wedding date from reading it in the newspaper?” his eyes widen in horror. “And you didn’t even know you were engaged?!”
Anja nods enthusiastically, thankful to have finally found someone who sympathizes with her plight. “It’s not that I never want to get married, but I don’t want it to happen that way. And I definitely don’t want it to be with him.”
“Marriage is such a ridiculous concept,” Alex muses, more to himself than Anja. “A lifelong promise between two people? Who can ever commit to loving the same person for the rest of their life?”
Anja seems a bit taken aback by his wholly anti-marriage attitude, and with the discussion apparently over he heads downstairs to chat with the next woman. His conversation with Venus doesn’t go nearly as well, however, and after discovering that they have wildly different tastes in music the opinionated young woman immediately gets up and stalks away.
I missed my 200 followers milestone, and if I’m not careful I’m going to miss my 400 followers one as well, but for now here’s my 300+ followers gift. =) I thought that this male hairstyle from the Into The Future expansion pack had a lot of promise, but that “flyaway” part on top really irritated me. Also, after looking at it more closely, I noticed that EA had created this weird “futuristic” pattern with the extra data shading on the back of the mesh, and in the lighter hair colors it really stood out.
So, I removed the ugly dark spots, smoothed down those extra pieces on top, and retextured it using my edit of Pooklet’s diffuse and Anubis’ control, and now it actually looks halfway decent to me. =D
I made two versions of this hair: One for people with ITF and one for people without. The only difference is that in the ITF version I linked to some of the textures (face, scalp, halo, and normals map), but in the base game compatible one I included those resources.
