Sims Story: Chloe & Lex's Sims Adventure

writer at work
There are two things I’ve been wanting to do lately. to do. Get back into writing fic, and write a Sims story. Well, thanks to some comments made on a message board I frequent (this one right here) the two ideas sort of merged in my brain. I thought, “Hey, I could write a Sims story using, say, Chloe and Lex. That could be fun!”

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 recommended anything. But, thanks to YouTube, I was reminded of a show that must be shared with the world. So, today, I'd like to introduce to you a classic TV series called Baywatch Nights. As you might have guessed, this was a spin-off of Baywatch. Sadly, it wasn't nearly as successful, and only lasted two seasons. Something that makes it's many fans weep bitter tears.

What was Baywatch Nights about? Well it was about what Mitch (David Hasselhoff) got up to at night, when he was through guarding lives on the beach. What did he get up to? It usually involved fighting vampires, evil spirits, sea monsters, aliens, werewolves...You know, the usual.  

Here are the opening credits, to sort of give you a hint of what the show was like. You might notice a few familiar faces in the cast.



I love people's reactions when I tell them about this show, which is usually along the lines of, "What the hell does fighting vampires have to do with watching the bay?"

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.

Okay, I did another version of my Mord'Sith Gwen wallpaper. Some people will claim it was because I'm all obsessive or something. But I'm not. I just had another take on it is all. And, if nothing else, it's certainly less red than the first.

Fanart: Mord'Sith Gwen Wallpaper (Merlin)

writer at work
When I ran across the picture of Charisma Carpenter (of BtVS and Angel) as a Mord'Sith, I thought, "You know, I can totally see Cordelia as a Mord'Sith, so that's not a huge stretch." Which made me start thinking of characters you might not expect to be Mord'Sith, like Gwen. Then I thought, "But maybe Gwen would be a kickass Mord'Sith." And then I imagined Merlin or Arthur meeting Mord'Sith Gwen. After that, this wallpaper had to be made.

Fic: Fade Away (Lisa)

writer at work
Title: Fade Away (1/1)
Author: dannyblue
Fandom: Lisa (a film from 1989/1990)
Word Count: A little over 200 words.
Rating: PG-13
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. :)

10 Vampire Dudes I Really Like, Part 2

writer at work
And, finally, it's time for part two of my 10 Vampire Dudes I Really Like list. After I posted 10 Vampire Dudes I Really Like, Part 1 , some folks suggested some vampire dudes they felt I was leaving out unfairly. And some even popped into my head all on their own. But I was determined to stick with my original list. Because I know me, and any kind of indecisiveness could lead to hemming and hawing, and part two never getting posted.

So, without further ado, five more vampire dudes I really like.

10 Vampire Dudes I Really Like, Part 1

writer at work
Last year, to celebrate the Halloween season, I made two vampire fanmixes. (Taste of Blood and We Hunger.) This year, I present to you my list of 10 Vampire Dudes I Really Like. There are other vampire dudes I really like, but I wanted to limit myself to ten, and not spend so much fussing over trying to make a “definitive” list that I ended up not posting anything at all. (Which has happened to me many times before.) Plus, I’m sure there are some lovable vampire dudes I didn’t think of when I was making the list. But these ten will provide plenty of eye candy for the time being. Well, five for now. I’m splitting the list into two parts, because this thing is gonna be big. Well, big for me. :)

So without further ado, and in no particular order, here is part 1 of 10 Vampire Dudes I Really Like.
