As many of you know, I am a gamer. What many of you did not know, until recently, is that I'm a huge Sims fan. And, in Sims3, I've recreated the characters from The Iron King to play in an alternate reality. Meghan, Ash, Puck, the whole gang. (No Grimalkin, sadly. EA really needs to do a Sims3 Pets expansion pack.) Soooo, once word of this got out, it was suggested I do weekly posts to show how everyone in my Sim town is doing.
Okaaaaaaaaaaay. Sure, why not? I wear my geekdom proudly, after all. This meme will follow the lives of my Sims until I get bored with them, or my computer crashes. Or everyone gets sick and tired of seeing my Sims prance around and threatens me with dismemberment if I don't stop.
Anyway, the story thus far.
Meet Meghan Chase:
She lives out in the swamps in an old green farmhouse.
With her mother and stepfather...
And little brother. (Yes, Ethan is a teenager now; I've been playing for awhile.)
On this particular day, Meghan goes to the old bridge to meet a mysterious stranger.
All right, he's not really a stranger. Remember that I've been playing this for awhile. Meg and Ash have been sweethearts since high school, and just yesterday, Ash finally proposed. So now, they try to steal all the moments they can.
Awh. And, I'll leave it there for now. Come back next week to see how Meg and the gang progress from here.
I'm such a dork.
ETA: For those asking about Puck; yes, he's there too. Next post will include Puck, fear not. Also, keep in mind that this is an alternate reality that does not reflect the Iron King series. Don't let the events in the Sims color your expectations of the novel.
