WHERE THE SNOWE FALLS

There is a method in my madness.

Every update, every story, every challenge, every post to do with the quirky and extraordinary Snowes, for your convenience! Enjoy!


The Sliding Doors
[Note.]This started out on Boolprop, as a challenge created by itsjulie, called The Sliding Doors. Basically the point is, same sim, three choices, see how that sim's life plays out by something as simple as a career (ordinary career, part time, self employed.) I added my own twist, that each career was in a different world, to really mix things up.

Lois: "WWWWWAAAAAAA! DOOR!"

Nat was going all kinds of stir-crazy, so she had to get out the house, and that meant bringing Lois and George with her. Last time they went out (in the pics I lost) an adult almost interacted with Lois, so can't risk that happening again.

George: "I want a bike."
Nat: "Tough shit. I'd rather have money for food, than some bike only you can use."

George: "Hey Lois, Nat managed to get that rich chump Shark to go steady with her. We are going to be so rich when they are old enough to get married."
Lois: "Bub."
George: "Yeah, hopefully they will have one of those too. We will live in that mansion."

True story. I did have some pictures of that, where Nat finally got Shark to go out with her. But technical issues on my flashdrive a caused me to lose them. Also, there were some major upgrades around the basement, that were too many to point out right now. Including that dining table and extra chair behind George.

Nat went to the larger junkyard to scope it out. She needs scrap for metal sculptures.

Things moved along smoothly, with Nat sculpting and George painting. Still not a great deal of money coming in though.

Nat took Lois to the junk yard. I figured they could make some money off scrap.

Back to talking lessons for Lois!

Nat: "Baseball."
Lois: "Baseball!"
Nat: "Only take 'em if they're signed. Even then, too much hassle finding out if they're the real deal."

Staying home had some upsides. Nat got to eat a tub of free organic ice cream for breakfast. Yeah, I say that is a good trade off.

The Marston orphans moved into the shack. I sold the double bed and instead bought the two cheapest beds and a crib. Moved any furniture they could actually use like the living room stuff in the basement. Added some toys for the younger ones to play with. I did realise after I took this that I forgot to buy a potty, then added one. This ate up a huge chunk of their funds, since I bought it furnished and kept everything.

Life on Marston: Runaway Orphans Challenge
Taya

This is a challenge of my own creation. I don't really have the rules written down in a proper rule set way, mostly scribbled on index cards, post-its, and the back of envelopes. XD

That being said, if anyone reads this challenge and is interested in giving it a try, let me know and I can try and put them together in a proper rule set. It may seem at parts I'm making the rules up as I go along, that is only partially the case. I did do a bit of trail and error with it, tweaking some rules that didn't work.

The inspiration behind this was when I was reading the book Flowers in the Attic. That gave me an idea for sims, with kids surviving on their own without adults, trying to make their grim isolated life somehow better. Also, I've wanted to do a runaway teen challenge forever, so I mixed the two concepts together and it came together nicely. The only thing I took from the runaway teen challenge is that they are runaways and can't interact with adults at all.

Time to meet the orphans! :D


Nat Marston: Kleptomaniac, Eco-Friendly, Savvy Sculptor, Slob.
George Marston: Eco-Friendly, Mooch, Eccentric.
Lois Marston: Clumsy, Heavy Sleeper

Nat, George and Lois are orphans, who wanted to stick together rather than going to any more foster homes and getting split up. So, they ran away to Twinbrook, and live in a shack out in the bayou. The one with the big basement that they can safely live in without drawing too many prying eyes. Only each other to depend on, they have no choice but to try to survive without any adults at all.

Corny: "What are you going to do?"
Taya: "I don't know."
Corny: "You need to tell your dad."
Taya: "Okay. Yes, I mean, you're right. I just need a minute. He is going to freak out."
