Sometimes I feel myself getting stuck in a CAS rut and a lot of my sims end up looking very similar. I’ve seen these types of click and drag generators often as writing resources, or as silly games to predict the “future” and thought it might be interesting to tailor it and incorporate it directly into the sims so I’ve thrown a quick one together. Everything is still quite open-ended so it’s all up for personal interpretation, it’s just a push to get you started.
*Note: I included alien and vampire under gender. If you get one of these options, feel free to drag again until you get male/female to determine the gender, or choose it yourself. Like I said this isn’t set in stone and is more for inspiration than hardcore rules. If you don’t have the vampire pack, just pull a different result. No biggie.
By no means do I take any form of credit for this idea, I’m sure it’s probably even been done on simblr in the past, I just wanted to throw my hat in the ring and thought I’d share it with all you lovelies as well. x
Might make a fun challenge too? tag your creations as #clickanddragcas or something and see what this prompts us all to make maybe idk!! just have fun nd make cute sims
For whatever reason, imagining an AU where Ethan is a fallen angel really makes me happy? Like Ethan waking up cast down from the sky and he has no idea how to live on Earth, but he bumps into Mark n Amy n Ty n Kat and he ends up just following them around and asking questions about everything?
Ethan with fluffy wings and eyes that glow white when he’s angry? Speaking of wings, Ethan hiding behind his wings when he’s embarrassed or using them to flutter up when Tyler calls him short? Plus everyone automatically finds him beautiful at first sight and Mark has used the “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?” Line several times because he finds it funny
Angelic Eth not being able to lie? Ever? Which leads to him confessing a lot of things he doesn’t want to, like how he ate the last of the waffles and he doesn’t actually think that hat looks good on Mark and also he’s in love with like everyone on the team, etc.
Plus since it’s really common in mythology for angels to have healing powers? Eth lying in bed with Ty and asking about his kidney, Ty tells him and E just gets really sad and curls up against Ty’s chest? And Ethan is like “you’re okay now” and Tyler doesn’t know what that means but his health has completely improved at his next doctor’s appointment
Or if the first time Eth heals someone is when the rest of the team is super sick and struggling to make videos, Ethan goes to snuggle with them since they’re all sitting in a miserable sick circle on the floor, editing videos. Everyone is immediately like “dude no! We’re gonna get you sick” but Ethan just does it anyways because he’s a cuddle monster and heals them in the process
Bonus if Mark still has red hair when Ethan falls and Eth sees it and get super excited because he wants his hair to look like that! So after a few weeks he finally convinces Mark to take him to the hairstylist but he catches a glimpse of a girl with blue hair and changes his mind? So he comes out of the salon with bright blue hair and angel wings puffed out in happiness, Mark tells him he looks like he’s going to a costume party.
I don’t know why this is specific to this AU but Amy and Kathryn exchanging Eskimo kisses with Ethan? Because they love their blue boy
Plus any time they see a bird in public someone will point to it and say “Look Ethan your mom came back for you”
Without further ado, a recipe for a fan recipe based on a fanfic. Of Homestuck.
for the winter king
[ peach + rose water + orange blossom ]
2 white peaches, diced
1 lemon, juiced
1 cup white sugar
2 tbsp pectin
vanilla extract, to taste
rose water, to taste
orange blossom extract, to taste
for the handmaiden
[ mulled wine + red berries ]
1 white peach, diced
1 pluot (or plum), diced
1 box each raspberries, blackberries and strawberries
1 cup red wine
1 cup white sugar
3 tbsp pectin
vanilla extract, to taste
cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, clove to taste
Directions are similar to typical pectin jam making, dice all ingredients to roughly the same size, and bring to a boil with the sugar/spices. Add the pectin once it’s boiling, then remove from heat. The mulled wine recipe is non-alcoholic, the alcohol will burn off during the cooking process. Stir extracts/waters after the jam has been taken off the heat.
I did a lot of this to taste, so remember, you can’t really go wrong w fruit and a fuckton of sugar. If all else fails, there are many jam websites that provide more precise measurements and temperatures.
Thanks for reading what is possibly the nerdiest post I’ve ever made. Tune in next week for more. Like, comment and subscr-
are ships.. really so important that you’re gonna just harass the people that gave you this material in the first place. make them hate fandoms in silence and worse make them hate what they create? this is especially irksome when its directed towards a)disney shows and b)shows with heavy plot. im not really directing any of this towards any show in particular mind you, theres far too many fandoms going after this trend to single any out at this point, there are some high contenders though.
more under the cut because this rant ran away from me and became way longer than intended
It is a garden of Eden. The jungle holds both beauty and terror in its depths, most terrible of which is man. We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself.
Summary: Jungkook is your brother’s annoying best friend. You can’t stand him but he just can’t resist teasing you. How far will he actually go?
Warnings: slight language
“Thanks for the ride Tae,” you said, giving his arm a squeeze before sliding out of the car.
You walked up your drive and unlocked the door, giving Taehyung a wave before you slipped inside. He always waited until you were in the house to drive away which never failed to make you smile. He was sweet, you had to admit.
A/N: So I originally intended for this to be the last part of Skyline, but because things needed to be explained so much, the story is getting a bit longer than I anticipated. For that reason, there will be a Skyline pt. 6!! I almost wish there wasn’t, because I love the evenness and finality of five parts, but what can you do. Special thanks to Zoe and Jen for helping me brainstorm ideas, and for giving me feedback!! Also, just a reminder, I do not have a tags list!! I really hope you guys enjoy pt. 5!!!
You really had no idea how Spider-Man did it. How could he walk around in his civilian
life, bursting at the seams with the secret of his powers, and not tell
anybody? How could he stay up half the
night roaming the streets of Queens and keeping them safe? How did he balance his hero responsibilities
with those of a typical teenager? You
were sure that, if the radioactive spider had bitten you, you would not have
been able to handle it like Spider-Man did.
You felt the change immediately when you woke up the
morning after your night with Spider-Man.
After crossing all those lines that the two of you had so carefully left
uncrossed for months, you had stayed up almost all night, just talking (and
also kissing a little bit? But really,
could anyone blame you? He was a super
hero). Once Spider-Man had left around
four am, you had had less than two hours of sleep once your alarm rang at
six. And by the time you made it to
school, you had felt like death warmed over.
That day had been a groggy fog of trying to stay awake and coherent
until school was over, and you were tucked away in your cozy bed.
Yuri: I’ve came all the way from Russia to see your concert so, don’t dissapoint me, OK? JJ: Aww, remember I never dissapoint you Yuri-chan. But… If you give me one of your…ehh… Ice Tiger blessings, I’m sure l’ll do more than my best. C’mon Yuri, please?? Yuri: ……………………………..Damn it… And this↑ is what happens :D
(Don’t ask me why they are soaked under the rain, and why JJ is already half naked even before the concert starts because I have no idea 😆😆)
(Please do not tag as Ot//ayuri and do not pretend that it’s O/tabek. Thank you!)
Pidge tries to hide it, of course. After all, she’s on a spaceship for of mostly dudes and she’s not sure if Allura gets an Altean equivalent, so she just tries to deal with it alone.
And for the most part she manages just fine. After all, spare socks serve well enough, as do the stolen gauze pads from first aid kits. And Altean toilet paper is, for some reason, way stronger than any brand on Earth.
So in that respect, she’s fine.
It’s hiding it from the guys that’s a problem. But they can sense that something’s off with Pidge, even though she won’t say. And she’s hiding it because she knows how they’d react.
First of all, there’s Coran. Who would ask her a lot of questions about this human biological phenomenon. And normally, Pidge would be understanding and wouldn’t mind answering. Just not when she’s in pain and suffering.
Keith would kind of avoid her. I mean, he’s never really been around people in general, never mind girls. And Shiro, though he would try to be supportive and understanding, grew up with a bunch of brothers. So no. Our beloved Spacedad wouldn’t really get it.
But to the shock of everyone, it’s not sweet, always-looking-out-for Pidge Hunk that figured it out first.
It took Lance about 20 seconds to figure out Pidge was on her period. And even though he never told the others what was wrong with Pidge, they grew even more suspicious when Lance starts doing weird things for Pidge.
Lance tells Hunk to make something as close to chocolate ice cream as he can. He describes a hot water bottle to Coran to see if there’s an Altean equivalent. He lends Pidge his headphones and music player and asks Allura about extra pillows and blankets. He even convinces Shiro to let Pidge sit in her room with her laptop when moving became too painful for her.
Now, the others eventually figure out what’s going on. I mean, they’re not stupid. But only Keith has the nerve to ask Lance how knew what to do.
Lance simply shrugs. “When you have four sisters, you learn things.”
(Sorry. I just love the idea of Lance knowing how to handle girl problems.)
There’s literally no Sarah/Erica fics that I can find and I take that as a personal threat.
Anyway, these are all the ones I’ve read and that I recommend, there’s like 47 pages of mbav fanfiction on fanfiction.net so there’s probably some hidden gems in there. (I’m so sorry that this is so long)
Without scrolling the entire tag I can’t be sure someone else hasn’t mentioned this, but I haven’t seen it, so apologies if you have…
People are talking about the fact that Dark respects Wilf.
Are you sure? I’ve been in enough meetings to know that the phrases “I respect you / your opinion” and “With all due respect” have nothing to do with actual respect, they’re negotiating tools. What it actually means is “I have a superior idea, but I need you to be open to my suggestion even if you disagree with it, so I’ll allow you to believe that I think you’re equal.” (In most cases, anyway)
Remember, this is Dark we’re talking about. He will say whatever you want to hear to make you open to his suggestions. He may respect Wilf’s body count and methods, but I think that’s about it.
Also, standing at the end of the boardroom table by a TV or board doesn’t make you the boss, it simply means you’re pitching an idea in direct eye-line of the boss. I know what Mark said, and I’m not refuting it, but office bullshit is ingrained in me now.
Edit: This is not a solid headcanon, I’m open to discussion :) You can even open it with “I respect your opinion, but…” lol
How come mister doesn't have a little ? 😮 He's da perfect dadda!!
I get this question like every day…. so I will put things plain.
I am a lot to deal with.
I have agoraphobia. (look it up) combined with anxiety and paranoia disorders. this causes me to be extremely guarded, especially when it comes to most personal details about myself. It gives me great anxiety to reveal things… because I always think people are going to turn on me, come to get me, or otherwise take me from my safety.
My safety circle is a small radius that encompasses about a 3 mile ring around my house. I chose this house for specific reasons. its in the middle of nowhere, but close enough to everything I need that I can go out when appropriate to get it.
I have my groceries delivered. The guy delivers pizza and for 20 bucks he picks up my order and brings it to my house. He leaves it on the porch. No one but my brother and therapist have been in my house in several years outside of a few excruciatingly difficult events.
These problems are coupled with the fact that I am incredibly private.
most cant handle them and give up.
(I wasnt always like this,… and I dont always expect to be. I am working hard on it every day.)
At the same time, I am also very dominant… very intimidating.. and very critical. The one who captures my heart, has to deal with a lot. My Dom side often spills over into things… causing me to be cold, causing me to be stressful. I can be very selfish and such. I have high expectations.
I can be mean… I can be vicious even. And my irish blood doesnt take well to being crossed.
most cant handle my status…. including my “internet fame”…. I get propositioned, daily. I obviously get a lot of attention from lost littles.
jealousy is not something that can exist in the heart of the one who seeks to submit to me. But at the same time, once I am locked down.. I am very loyal. but.,.. most cant see the forest for the trees. So they make assumptions, pigeon hole me… turn me into a cliche’… and ultimately drive me away with their own self sabotage.
And thats a tremendous turn off.
I dont do jealousy. I dont do those who give me grief about things I cannot control. I cant control the actions, thoughts and emotions of other people. I am certainly not going to sit back and be blamed for them. I will run my blog as I see fit according to how it flows and moves me. At the end of the day, its still going to be there… no matter what.
I can be reserved… quiet… and pensive a lot of the time. I am a deep thinker and meditate. People often mistake this as disinterest. I am naturally in defense mode expecting that everyone has an ulterior motive (because usually they do)… and these thoughts, coupled with my paranoia… dont do well.
I’m not one to reveal much about my personal self, and thats something that you work for if you really care and want to know. How old are you Mister? Where do you live Mister? Whats your name Mister?
I’m not your traditional fly by night Daddy dom.
I have years of experience, mentor ship and education that I can credit myself to… and anyone whose been around here for more than 5 minutes is going to tell you exactly that I know what I’m talking about and I do it well. Some would consider me an ALPHA in the game, maybe even THEE ALPHA, and along with that status I expect a certain level of thought be put into how I am seen and perceived.
Yes I am completely narcissistic. I wont try to hide it. Yes I am selfish at times. ….. I’m a Dom. duh.
I have a lot of power that I could easily abuse…. but I also have this rare thing called standards and morals. Imagine that… hard to believe it actually still exists in our world, but it does. I’m not easy… and I dont think with my dick.
So figure that one out.
I am also one who has been around the block his fair share, I have owned subs and littles, I have been part of my local community, I have physically taught and trained many, I have studied this lifestyle at a collegiate level, and I have painstakingly crafted a blog in order to pass that wisdom and experience on to others in hopes that they might learn and succeed themselves.
I’m not one of these guys who sits around looking up the ddlg tag, getting my idea of it from porn, and then setting out to claim and conquer every girl I can in the process of trying to get mine and leaving them in the dust.
I have a genuine passion and caring for those in my community, daddy and little, and a great desire to improve the lives of each and every one I come in contact with.,
And if one little messages me telling me that they benefited even in the slightest way from what I do, that makes it worth it for me.
and I dont need a little to do that.
yes it would be nice, and maybe some day I will…
but the one who holds that title, who gives me her great gift of submission, is going to have to be extremely patient, hold no judgments or jealousy, and really take some time to figure me out and realize exactly the kind of opportunity she has sitting in front her… because the one who does that, is the one who is going to beat out all the others.
Everyone gets a shovel….
….. its what you do with that shovel that gets you to the goal.
Its just a shame that most end up using it to dig their own graves.
