Default A Faerie Sisters Fairy Tale
I loved this idea but decided to shake it up a little and tell it from the sister's point of view. Hope you don't mind.

Changes made are as follows -
The sister is to find and bring a bride to the castle. The Prince has one month in which to woo her and wed her.

I created the Faerie twins in CAS and then hired a live-in housekeeper.
Prince Tharnn Enth-Kimlye is an aspiring musician with sticky fingers. His LTW is "Possession is nine-tenths of the law."
Princess Lilliana Enth-Kimlye is an aspiring writer with the LTW of "Illustrious Author."
The housekeeper is Deidre McMillan. Her LTW is "The Culinary Librarian" and hates the outdoors.

Of course, it might help if I add the link to the blog I've started, huh?

Has anyone tried this challenge except using the 'Add Roommate' function to make the Snatched human into an NPC? As I understand it, you could save your 'snatched' one to the sim bin, and then with testing cheats enabled "Edit in CAS" your new roommate to make them into the snatched one.

I haven't tried it yet, but I was thinking of doing this challenge and using the room mate function to stop me from being tempted to control the snatched one.

I can't wait to try this! This is really getting me back into writing stories with the sims! *Runs off to download a bunch of fae themed things*


Note: How does the lifetime wish work for the human girl? Just randomize it?

If the human is locked in the room how can another sim enter the room to interact with her?

I think what was meant was that the door is locked to the human Sim but not to the other Sims.

There is a mod on this site that you can lock out certain people from a room and allow others.

Just use search and type door.

Ah. I was a bit confused there, as I could lock the doors for specific Sims on my vanilla games.

I made a dungeon for my vampires hold humans and faes for the vampires to feed from. The door allows you more functionality than just the vanilla games locked door option.

Short Story
Here is a short story of the girl and how she was caught by the Fae:
Lily (the human girl) woke up one morning. She yawned, then shook her head. Where am I, she thought. Heaven? All of a sudden, she saw fairies playing outside. Then she saw her sister walk by with garbage. "What's happening to me?" she says to herself. All of a sudden, there was a knock on the door....

TO BE CONTINUED
WILL BE CONTINUED!!

A good way to keep the human female on the grounds is to put a fence all the way around the property and one or two gates and lock her out.
It worked for mine, she couldn't even get to the hospital when she was having her first child but the rest of the house could. She stood at the gate and had a tantrum until i had to 'force' her back inside.

Man, I really want to play this challenge, since it's one of the few interesting ones I've found.

But I'm not sure I can handle basically making a Sim go through Stockholm Syndrome...

O.O Oh my word! I love your challenge! Watching the first episode right now... again, completely overwhelmed by the creativity of people!

If anyone is interested, I also put up the challenge on my blog , including pictures of the Jareth/Sarah inspired family that I used to test the challenge.

I really need to start checking this thread more often... every time I am blown away!

Default Loving this challenge
My male Fae is Avery Burnside - an Ambitious, Charismatic, Irresistible, Hopeless Romantic Genius. He moved to the family estate in Moonlight Falls (Qube designs fabulous Gothic Manor) with his Artistic, Charismatic, Friendly, Nurturing, Virtuoso sister Mara. His reluctant bride Kira attracted his attention with her Virtuoso skills, so on a grand romantic whim he decided to take her with with him. He knew she'd come around. People always do what Avery wants, eventually. They also took Clive, the family minion (Neat, Natural Cook, Handy, Bookworm, Loner).

It's going really well. Avery is working towards his rightful destiny as Leader of the Free World. He wooed Kira really quickly, and they have one child (disappointingly human) and another on the way. They are not quite Best Friends yet, but there is plenty of mutual passion.

Mara paints (self-employed as a Painter), and spends a lot of time playing music, often with Kira. She loves the parties Avery likes to throw and is confident she will achieve her goal of being a Renaissance Sim - probably Painting, Piano and Charisma.

Kira may well independently reach her Lifetime Wish (One Man Band) as she is up to at least skill level 4 in all 4 instruments by day 10. I got lucky with her random traits (Good, Friendly, Bookworm, Technophobe). She amuses herself by reading, starts conversations with Mara and Avery, and so far her technophobia has manifested only in repeated attempts to break the karaoke machine, perfectly understandable for a Virtuoso.

Clive works hard, and keeps happy by reading recipe books in the little room I made for him in a cellar under the carriage house. He has the Culinary Librarian lifetime wish. He has also learned writing and alchemy for making a few dollars for the family in his spare (huh!) time. I started the family in a very well appointed house, but not much cash, so the bills can be a worry.

I'll add pictures later .

Default Cool Challenge
This challenge is a different way to play that allows for stories and seems interesting, so I might give it a go.

Someone else might have said this or I may have just been skimming, but a good way to continue this into a legacy playthrough would be to have each male child become the next man of the household, and force a woman to move into the house. I think I'm going to play this way- like father, like son!
