Completely unexpected, I was nominated for the Unique Blogger Award by TheoriesOfHappiness who is the author of quite a number of simlit stories and a non-simlit one named Shelter, too! And, goodness, I didn't know there were such things as interactive simlit horror stories but there are.
So if you appreciate a barnstorming writing style, plot and a little bit of fear, you should definitely go check it out and see how your decisions will affect the characters. Or read the Humble Legacy if you're up for some slighter fare.
Thank you so much for my first ever nomination! You will receive honorary membership in any tribe you wish... ;)
How have you grown as a simmer?
It's not as much the playing itself but rather reading and discussing all the wonderful stories with other readers which has somewhat broadened my mind and given me an insight into other peoples' lives that I don't want to miss. Honestly, Sims is a life simulation and some of the very personal experiences other readers shared prove that the imagination can come very close to reality, sometimes.
How do you feel about the usage of mods / custom content? Why?
When I started playing, I was convinced I don't need it. The game already has so much content. The only exception was the MC Command Center mod because I really wanted a story progression without having the trouble to marry all those townies off by myself.
My simself lived her entire life without any cc and my legacy family, too. And then... I started the Amazon Challenge. And writing. And decided that if I already wrote the story I could as well share it. And suddenly, the fridge in the background began to bother me. So that's how it started and everything has become more since then (and essential, mainly the poses and the fridge replacement). I wouldn't miss it now. :)
Favorite era to write?
The past. Everything after the ice age and before 1900. I'm such a history loving person... Not professional but I try my best for the stories I wrote and still write apart from Sims. It's so much fun to explore the everyday life, society and moral concepts of other cultures who may have lived long ago and had to face challenges completely unknown nowadays and others that seem more familiar.
And in the end, you realize in astonishment that although their world was such different from yours, they had exactly the same problems, wishes and fears like you.
