Eyebleach with the Shallot-Lius

San Myshuno's favorite necrophiliac is here to step in before things get too real. The Small Onion & Destroy family A week before Jasper found his nemesis in a multi-thousand-year-old snow demon, Xiyuan and his husband forego preparing for Winterfest in favor of a monomaniacal adherence to routine that rivals Groundhog Day---but here with the … Continue reading Eyebleach with the Shallot-Lius

The Grey Wedding

"I can't believe this," Aileen said, to her son and to her own wedding invitation, propped up with a twine-wrapped baby food jar, sporting a mockingly pastoral Seven-Brides-for-Seven-Brothers scene even as the droplets splattering her window at 220 bpm threatened an ambience closer to that Alanis Morissette song. Aileen, having enough writing skill points to … Continue reading The Grey Wedding

The Lucas/Liu/Haskins Conglomerate: To Being an ‘Us’ for Once

The smell of lobster cooked on a cheap stove and the sound of technical drills performed at a steadily increasing tempo clash for sensory dominance directly outside the 12th story window of an Arts District apartment. Their progenitor pauses to admire the acoustics of his living room; the partially tiled floor had a wonderful effect … Continue reading The Lucas/Liu/Haskins Conglomerate: To Being an ‘Us’ for Once

The Shallot-Liu Family: Shallot-Liu vs. Shu

Some Sims belong in certain places. Charlie needs to live near a fishing hole. Hector has a 98% chance of ending up in Selvadorada. Shu’s heart was always in San Myshuno, and, in what is arguably the only silver lining to his parents' divorce, can temporarily stay with relatives. Relatives he'll talk to when Chantel's … Continue reading The Shallot-Liu Family: Shallot-Liu vs. Shu

The Jensen-Liu Family: Aileen and Shu Rack Up the Partner Count Until Everyone is Uncomfortable, Pt. II

As it says on the tin. We learned in the previous chapter that Chantel (new readers: girlfriend #1 out of ???) is about to lose bone plasticity and start slowly accumulating hyperlordosis-induced back pain as she prepares for the next step in her switchlike aging process. So, off we go to her birthday party, where … Continue reading The Jensen-Liu Family: Aileen and Shu Rack Up the Partner Count Until Everyone is Uncomfortable, Pt. II

The Jensen-Liu Family: Aileen and Shu Rack Up the Partner Count Until Everyone is Uncomfortable, Pt. I

(Yes---the partner count is so high, this had to be split into two parts. In fact, it comes with its own practice problems. The midterm is in two weeks. Good luck!) There are moments that change who we think we are. There are moments we lose countless hours of sleep reliving, and when our body … Continue reading The Jensen-Liu Family: Aileen and Shu Rack Up the Partner Count Until Everyone is Uncomfortable, Pt. I

The Jensen-Liu Family: The One Habit of Highly Permissive Parents

(If an unrelated search term brought you here, my condolences. I've changed some of the wording to convince Google this post is irrelevant. This poor guy doesn't need a weird Sims blog on a list of sites honoring his life.) When we last visited Aileen and Shu, they were both on a quest for self-discovery, … Continue reading The Jensen-Liu Family: The One Habit of Highly Permissive Parents

The Shallot-Liu Family: It Exists Now!

Claudia (upper right): hmmkggrfffhhg oh hi guys, ambrosia's on the table, bye Ambrosia is a dish best served with your lover. Bernard receives some sandwich-based emotional … Continue reading The Shallot-Liu Family: It Exists Now!

The Jensen-Liu Family: New Beginnings, or at least Sleeping with New People

Let's see what Aileen is up to while her ex is being deliriously happy with his new fiancé. Shu's ready to age up, which can only mean one thing: there's about to be an extremely awkward party up in here and all his mom's friends are invited! This shitshow needs to be appreciated from its … Continue reading The Jensen-Liu Family: New Beginnings, or at least Sleeping with New People

Xiyuan Liu/Lord Bernard Escargot Shallot IV: Vignettes from San Myshuno

(The events of this chapter take place either concurrently with Seven Days, or after. You’ll probably be able to tell which is which. This chapter is a lot shorter, a lot less bonkers, and yes, I am aware I have other Sims.) Settling In Xiyuan had no trouble whatsoever acclimating to his new life. This … Continue reading Xiyuan Liu/Lord Bernard Escargot Shallot IV: Vignettes from San Myshuno
