Post Future’s Present--A Sims 3 Story 23rd April update!
When Frankie passed away she was a lady of high society, surrounded by wealth and power. Bobbie lived her last years as a lady of modest means.
Bobbie was born to wealthy parents and grew up attending balls and social functions. Frankie grew up in an orphanage.
The two girls were best friends, as close as sisters who supported each other through thick an thin. Mostly through thin.
They have not so much as written to each other in their entire adult lives for fear of ripping the space-time continuum in two and destroying two thirds of the universe.
Or something like that.
Their separation was the price they had to pay, but for what crime?

For those interested I've put up a sneek peek of the sets I've been working hard on for part two and a casting call for anyone who would like to see their sim in my story as an extra!

...........................................................................................................

I grew up loving old-fashioned school stories. These days I write speculative fiction. Somehow I had the bright idea to blend the two and make it a sims 3 story. Future’s Present starts off like any other in-public-domain school story but starting right at the prologue I start slipping sci-fi elements in there so keep your eyes peeled. While the story for the most part is set in the pseudo-Victorian world, the elements that drive the plot (even though you often don’t see them) are based on the sci-fi elements.
I encourage ‘sci-fi element spotting’ in any comments to my story as it will help me know if I’m being too subtle or not subtle enough. They’re in the pictures as well as the text and that’s something that’s new to me. The writing style is also new as I’m trying something similar in feel to the old stories but in first person. That said it’s a rather detached first person as the narrator is Bobbie as an elderly lady.

As promised, an update! Here is chapter five

Chapter Five: Highland Courage


All updates will post once a week from here on, all going well. The next two chapters are submitted and scheduled to post (I love that feature!) and the next two are done, I just need to choose what pictures to include, where to put them and to format the posts. I've started taking pictures fr chapter ten. If you ever want to know where I'm at with working on the story you can check out the status page where I'm listing where I'm at.

Enjoy!

New! 22nd of November. Chapter Ten: Frankie

Frankie. You've heard of her, haven't you? Who is she?
Mrs Hilton has written some letters to Bobbie, shouldn't she have recieved at least one of them by now?
What's up with the dumb picture? More to the point, what's up with the creepy sci-fi guy?
Does Chapter Ten answer any of these questions?
Well, I won't tell, but why not take a read of
Capter Ten: Frankie
and let me know!
