katrisims: (basic)
[personal profile] katrisims
Hello, and welcome to my simming blog! I'm Katri, a thirtysomething Finnish simmer, and this is my place to share my stories, general babbles, pictures and whatever else might cross my mind. So far, this has been a Sims 2 blog exclusively, but who knows about the future.

Below you can find an index of sorts about what you can find on this blog. It'll likely be updated and improved on occasion.

I currently have two ongoing stories, The Bookacy Family Alphabet Adventures and its spin-off, Villains or Heroes. Both are challenge-based, the former is an Alphabet Legacy and the latter an Apocalypse challenge. Both are also at least partially plot-driven these days. In addition, I play something which is not a story, an observational Build a City challenge called Lakewood: Just a BaCC.

Be warned: I started the alphabetacy in 2007 when I was much younger and had more time than today. Then I was hit by adulthood and responsibilities, a truckload of plot, the brilliant idea to play the whole neighborhood, and the desire to play and write other things. So these days, story updates are a pretty rare occurrence, but I do intend to keep going, however slow my progress might be.

The Bookacy Family Alphabet Adventures

This story started out as documenting my attempt at the Alphabet Legacy challenge, but fairly early on, it started turning into something more plotty. Author Bookacy moves into Alphabetia to have a new life and a family, but before her children are teenagers, she's gotten the family in trouble...

Villains or Heroes?

Villains or Heroes is a spin-off to the alphabetacy, but can be read independently if you wish. Salahuddin Chamcha, the founder, is the multi-generational antagonist of the Bookacy family, and he finds himself in jail. While there, he has a curious, lifelike dream where he is in a place called Strangetown. He finds some friends, the love of his dream-life... And then disaster strikes. Can Salahuddin and his family be the heroes of Strangetown, or will the villains win the day?

Lakewood: Just a BaCC

Lakewood: Just a BaCC is a non-plotty distraction from the two above stories. It's not intended as a story, but rather just observational gameplay documentation and a fun distraction.

I'm by no means a custom content creator and it's unlikely I'll become one. But there are a couple of small things I've shared in the past, so here are the links.

If you happen to be interested in what cc I use in my game, or if you're just browsing around for cc creators, I have a resource list. Mostly pretty basic stuff that people will already know about, but you never know right? I'll try to keep it up to date if I download more, though no absolute promises there.

Welcome again, I hope you enjoy your stay!
