(This is a slightly edited version of a previous post that I’ve now deleted since it pointed to a download that contained several mods from different creators.) 

I’m sorry, Anon - I’m not taking requests right now, but the good news is that this house is a popular build in the Sims community, so there are a kajillion of them out there! Try searching on “charmed” or “halliwell” for the Item Name or Hashtag search in the Gallery (as I did in the pic above - you can click to see the larger version). I found a ton of CC free ones just by doing that. I narrowed it down by “Lot” and “Residential” as well. If you don’t mind CC, you can click on “Advanced” and check “Include custom content”. You could also try googling “Sims 4″ “halliwell manor” - just be careful not to download any that include the mods, since that goes against many creators TOUs. Hopefully you can find one that you like!

Searching For Storybrooke

(or, if Once Upon a Time’s Storybrooke, Maine was a real place, where the f*ck would it be?)

OK, so, this topic is my personal baby because I am a weirdo and I find the theoretical location of Storybrooke in Maine an intriguing question. Maine is culturally a relatively unusual – let’s actually say quirky, because I like that more - place compared to everywhere else in the US. Even the other New England states (as well as the Canadian Maritime Provinces) only have some common overlap with the unique cultural flavor of Maine. Add to that the fact that the evidence on the show itself as to Storybrooke’s location is very mixed and self-contradictory, and you have a bit of a puzzle. I’ve explored canon evidence for the town’s location in this post, and suggested a possible locale for a “real Storybrooke” equivalent.

Please note that this is a very image-heavy post so brace yourselves if you click that Read More.
