It was a surprise when Logan fell in love with David Lee a few hours after I had just been to visit the Lee family. This makes the second time I know of when siblings are gay/lesbians.

If anyone is curious, while the first family bio was random, but now what I'm doing now is following the love interests of the teenagers across the families. So Annabelle led us to the Lee family, Ralph Lee led us to the Hunter-Bodette etc.


  1. This was post number 100 in this blog.


  2. Woo, more bios! :D Done lots, but still looks like you may have lots more to go--you gonna try to tackle the whole town? If so, I wish you luck!

    Cool seeing the origins of some of the sims, too--I always wondered about Zayne, because I never saw her in any of your guys' studios.

    Tomeka's an interest of Travis, eh? Haha... He sure has varying tastes over all these games doesn't he? Cute little bios, though--it helps give a better dynamic for each of the family than just stating the happy-haps.

    Also: Grats on 100 posts! Woo! :D

  3. Not the whole town. Just the added guest Sims, their kids and the few town families that have interacted with them (which is how the Wolff family gets in). So Holly and Parker Alto won't have one cause there is no next gen for them.

    Zayne Hunter had her own blog - older than any of mine. Pity Sue_d_nim lost that computer and had other issues. Zayne was very cool.

    Tomeka Wolff means the Kane family is on the next queue. Hopefully the brief bios will meet with your approval. And Dion means that Thomas is up too.

    I like doing these bios. Getting a better sense of who they all are and where the next gen may be headed.
