Intermission - Liebster and some explanations!

So first of all I want to apologise for the slow updates once again. Free time? Got lots of it. But goddamn are these posts a pain to write sometimes. This is why I'm an artist and not an author ;;
Hawthorne legacy, btw, has slow updates (and by that i mean no updates) due to problems I'm having with my game preventing me from actually playing. The game literally crashes after like twenty minutes and I lose everything. Hopefully I can fix that soon...

Anyway! So. Apparently, theres a thing called the Liebster award. And I was nominated for it by Nocriel - huge thanks for that!!

So what is the Liebster award? Well, I think the easiest way to explain it is to show off the rules...

- Say thank you to the person that has nominated you for the award.
- Answer the 11 questions the person has asked
- Nominate people (comment on their blog to let them know)
- Ask the people you have nominated 11 questions

My nominations and questions can be found at the bottom of the post. For now, let's answer some questions. :)

1. Who's your favorite sim?
Zachary! He's such a nervous wreck, and there's just something about constantly worried characters that I like. Kylie makes for a close second.

2. Do you stage a lot? How do you do it?
I actually don't stage at all! Unless you count little things like directing a sim to cry on another's shoulder after someone's just died, of course.

3. Is there a roll you'd really hate to play?
Deadbeat parents. Just, please no. Don't neglect the children. I wouldn't reroll if I got it, as I actually rerolled already (for the first generation. I rolled 5-star celebrity and I don't like the celebrity system), but man I just don't like the idea of neglecting the kids.

4. How about a roll you'd love to play?
Animal Wrangler or Equestrian, perhaps. I love pets. :P

5. What is your favorite Sims EP and why is it Pets?
...Pets. Definitely Pets. I'm a huge animal person and in real life, I'm the crazy cat girl and honestly there just feels like something... missing without animals in a household. Even if it's just a parrot or something.

6. What parts of yourself as a person in real life do you recognize in your sims (personality, experiences, appearance or whatever) or your story in general? Don't say nothing, I'm convinced there's always a little bit of yourself in your sims! :P
Like Zachary, I, too, am a worried, nervous wreck. Oops.

7. What lifespan do you play your RLC on/how many sim days?
The default.

8. Would you play Sims 3 without any CC or mods?
Considering that I already do... yeah. Take away my expansions and I'll bite you, though.

9. What other games do you play? Do you know Heroes of the Storm (I do not get paid by Blizzard, I'm just curious...)?
I'm sorry, I don't know Heroes of the Storm. D: I'm really, really into Pokemon, myself, but I also play Don't Starve and Portal. And I love story driven games and visual novels, especially mysteries!! Danganronpa, anyone?

10. What's a hobby of yours other than gaming/writing?
Art! I'm the resident art kid. I draw and paint and sometimes, photography too. Mostly just drawing, though. 
Oh, oh, and online roleplaying. That's always cool.

11. Is eleven questions too many?
Nah, just the right amount. :)

Now. Nominations!

I. Don't actually read a lot of legacy blogs (I've been meaning to catch up), but I'll throw down the ones I read anyway. I think most/all of these have already been nominated in the past, and if they don't want to answer my questions feel no obligation to!

--The Koyangi Legacy - Nocriel - Oops, you're the one that nominated me. But your legacy is a lot of fun to read, and hey look! C A T S!
--The Winterly Legacy - Marcy - This one I started reading, but I ended up losing my place. Oops. Still, I love your sense of humor so much. I should pick it up again later.
--A Clover and a Bee - Owl_face - I have yet to read this one because the heavy storytelling is intimidating (one day, though!), but you comment on every update I post. You and Nocriel are the only ones, and it means a lot to see that I have consistent readers who are enjoying my legacy. Thank you.
--The Only Way Is Up - Gemly_teddie - First RLC I read, and what got me into the whole thing in the first place. It's gone quiet recently (I believe the author had a baby..?), but even so. It's cool.
--Chaos Theory - Melynx - First of all, I love the name. I read up quite a bit before, like with the Winterlys, I lost my place. I intend on picking this one up again, too. Bloom is such a charming character :)

I reckon that's enough nominations. Questions!!

1. I hear most people use mods and CC in their games - which ones do you consider to be the absolute necessities, and why?

2. How long have you been playing the Sims for?

3. Out of all of your Sims, which do you find to be the hardest to write and why?

4. ^And who is the easiest?

5. Moving away from the topic of Sims temporarily, do you read often? What's your favorite book?

6. What kinds of music do you listen to whilst writing for your legacy, if any?

7. On average, how long does it take for you to write an update?

8. Are you a cat person or a dog person? Or neither?

9. If you could add one thing to the Sims that isn't already in an expansion, what would it be?

10. And if you could remove one thing, what would it be?

11. Why do you think its eleven questions and not ten?

Once again, thank you Nocriel for the nomination!! Hopefully, I'll be able to update soon.


  1. Thank you for the nomination! I added your question to my post for this award thing (http://beerandomlegacy.blogspot.com/2017/06/liebster-award.html). And regarding my legacy--you're not obligated to read it. ;) It's kinda long and wordy. You could read the summary and just skip all the chapters if you wanted to(http://beerandomlegacy.blogspot.com/p/summary-background.html). I honestly wouldn't be offended.

    I also identify with Zachary. I'm a worrywart too. I think that's why I like him so much. :)

    1. I read that URL as "beer randomlegacy" and now I can't unread it. Great.

      Owly's RLC is super worth reading it, you can totally jump in right now; I didn't start reading from the start either, you'll get into the story quickly!

  2. I can agree with surprisingly many of your answers! :-D Equestrian is my favorite roll too, and celebrity my least favorite. I used to be really into Pokemon too but kinda grew out of it (not wanting to buy a 3DS probably played into that as well...)
