38. Making Friends


Holy cow, a chapter released in the same year as the previous one! I’m rather proud of myself πŸ˜‰ Just a short one today; I had been going to combine this chapter and the next but it would have been ridiculously long so I decided to split it to make life easier for myself, and to try and get an update published in the same month as the last one was. I failed on that front technically as it’s 42 minutes into October, but I was nearly there!

Just wanted to share a couple of pictures of the house I built for Lily and Freya. It’s nothing massively exciting as I’m a fairly rubbish builder, but I’m currently binge-watching The Sim Supply’s Youtube channel hoping to pick up a few tips to help me improve!

Freya’s bedroom is the one on the right, and Lily’s is at the top. If you want me to share this house and the girls to the gallery then please let me know and I’ll sort all that out properly!

As you may have noticed I’ve had a little change about with the design of the blog. It’s still the same template but I’ve just played about with the layout and colour scheme, so I’d appreciate a bit of feedback. Also, I’ve decided that at the end of chapter 40 I’m going to be having an heir poll, so get your thinking caps on guys! I can’t focus on both twins for the whole generation and should they both have kids I won’t be able to choose which one should continue the legacy, so I’ve decided to let you guys decide for me!

Happy Simming everyone!

  1. Yay! A new chapter! While you say that you posted it on October 1st, I received the email at 8 pm on September 30th. So you’re still good in my book. XD

    It’s funny, when Lily was a teenager, she always seemed more like the girly girl type, so when she went all sporty as a young adult, I was rather surprised… XD But she seems to be doing well for herself. I have to say though… My initial impression of J. Huntington III is not necessarily a good one. He seemed rather pompous. He could be a good guy, but I think I might need to warm up to him…

    You sims made references made me chuckle. Game of groans… Humans… It was pretty funny. Aidan doesn’t seem too bad. Granted… He does play a sim version of a game that I love. Which always wins points in my book. XD It really stinks that Freya is in such a rut… I hope that she can get out of it soon…

    Great chapter! I love both Freya and Lily… I don’t know if I’m going to be able to pick between the 2..!

    • Hahaha, good stuff! I think to anyone west of the UK it’ll be fine :p
      Yeah, I had thought that Lily was going to be all stereotypically girly then when she and Freya aged up back in TS3 she randomly rolled the athletic trait, it really threw me! Decided to go with it though, for something a little different πŸ™‚
      Thanks for reading, and for commenting!! I’m sure you’ll make the right decision :p

  2. Yay! Awesome chapter…once again. πŸ™‚ I must admit I am in love with Freya’s character and really want to see where things go with her and Aidan. I know she’s got a few more masterpieces left in her still. And Lily’s great, too, but J. Huntington III…not so much. Your Sims references, especially Humans, cracked me up. So funny. Loved it!

    • Thank you! I’m pleased you enjoyed it πŸ™‚ Hahaha, glad the references were appreciated! Can never decide if they’re too cheesy etc, so always good to know they’re going down well!

      Thanks for reading, and for commenting πŸ™‚

  3. I swear I nearly cried laughing at Aidan playing “Humans” on the computer at the library! Too funny! I love your sense of humour in your chapters and how your Sims always say “oh gnomes!” lol, classic comedy!

    Being the struggling, introverted novelist that I am, I of course will be rooting for my girl Freya to take over the legacy officially. πŸ˜‰

    I loved seeing some of the townies in this chapter. I think EA did a pretty good job on the premades this time, I’ve yet to see a truly horrifying premade Sim. I’m glad Lily found a hunky guy at the gym but I’m pretty sure J has the noncommittal trait so proceed with extreme caution, Lily!

    As usual, a wonderful chapter. I was so excited to see an update!

    • Thanks! I’m so pleased you enjoyed it πŸ™‚ I agree about the premades, compared to the Sims of Twinbrook they’re a massive improvement!!

      Thanks for reading and for commenting, as ever πŸ™‚ Means a lot Ashleigh!!

  4. Hey Sian, just leaving another comment to let you know I’ve been re-reading your Rivers Legacy and it’s just as good the second time around! I hope you’ve been doing well! I’ve got a couple new chapters up on my blog but updates still aren’t quite as frequent as I’d like (story of our lives, eh?). I can’t wait for the next chapter you put out, whether it’s a day or a year from now, they’re always well-worth the wait! ❀

  5. Hi there!
    I recently found your blog – and read the whole story about the Rivers family. I was having a very long Sims break, but I was really glad when I saw that your last post is pretty recent and that you are planning to continue.

    I found your stories really inspiring and sweet. ❀
