In a Sims Story is, you basically create some Sims, follow them through their life, and write about what they do and what happens to them. Usually with pictures. And you try to do it in a way that tells an interesting story.
I’ve never done a Sims Story before, but I think it will be fun. Let’s see, shall we?
I'm using the Sims 3, by the way. I'm not playing with any extensions because they slow down my game. But I might up and install one while playing.
Now on to the story.
Chapter 1: Moving On Down...for a While
Our story begins some time in season 4, and things are pretty normal for good old Smallville. Lionel has wheedled his way out of prison. Lex thinks he and Clark might possibly maybe be friends again…but he’s not sure. And Chloe is bending over backwards for her friends, who don’t really seem to appreciate it. You know, the usual.
One day, Lex is working in his study (mostly trying to think of ways not to have to deal with his father) when the door bursts open.
In marches Chloe, looking as intense and determined as he’s ever seen her. Which is saying something.
“You know what?” she began without preamble. “If we don’t get out of here, this town is going to drive the both of us nuts. That or kill us!”
A thoughtful frown puckering his brow, Lex idly rubbed his chin. She did have a point. Despite its quaint and peaceful small town image, Smallville didn’t seem very healthy for anyone. Especially the two of them.
Leaning back in his chair, he cast a signature smirk in her direction. “I gather you have something in mind.”
As a matter of fact, she did. Chloe proposed that they start over fresh somewhere completely new. Somewhere where they didn’t know anyone and (more importantly) no one knew them.

It's been a while since I've recced a movie, and here's one I just re-watched recently and had to share.
The flick is called To Wong Foo. Thanks for Everything. Julie Newmar. Which has to be one of the longest titles in the history of ever. Most fans shorten it to To Wong Foo.
To Wong Foo is the story of three drag queens traveling cross country, from New York to Los Angeles, in a rather dubious car. The drag queens are played by Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze and John Leguizamo. And they are awesome. Here's a clip from one of my favorite scenes. Although the movie is filled with favorite scenes for me.

Fandom: Lisa (a film from 1989/1990)
Word Count: A little over 200 words.
Summary: "She avoided looking in mirrors for a long time after that night."
Warnings: If you haven't seen the movie Lisa, and don't want to be spoiled for it, do not read this fic.
Disclaimer: I do not own Lisa, or any of its characters.
Author's Note: I don't know why I suddenly got the urge to write a fic for this film. I was just thrilled to be writing again. Plus I've always liked Lisa. After watching it, I often wonder how the 14 year-old main character will deal with everything post-movie. And a fic was eventually born. :)
