Hallå, Boolpropians!
Happy start of September! For some of us, this means the starting of school (myself included in that bunch), while for others it's just the start of a new month. However, for ALL Boolpropians it's the beginning of SimNaNoWriMo, as hosted by Ani-Mei! Ever wanted to participate in a NaNoWriMo, but didn't have the time? Or perhaps the month was bad? Or maybe like some you just struggled to produce anything non-Sims? Well this is your chance! Enter to be a part of this fantastic event and pursue several different ways of going for gold! Sign-ups will be open for just a while longer for those who have an inkling to participate! Let's get down to business, shall we?

Hold up, everyone! A new challenge has come to town! Invented by forum's own, Rawla, the Close Encounters Academy (C.E.A.) creates a multi-generational challenge that's out of this world. You've been handed a top-secret mission: to become an Alien Ambassador, but could it be possible that it's more than you bargained for? This 3-generation challenge is a fast, fun way to get in touch with all of our inner aliens. Complete it and you get this cute metal to boot: Image
Find the rules here: Sims 2 | Sims 3 | Sims 4

September Winners

Congratulations to our new winners!


Through Colourblind Eyes - A Sims 3 Legacy by itsjulie

Shades of Blue - a Sims 4 OWBC by Teresa
From the Author:
I started the challenge as a way to test out the rules for the Officially Wacky Boolprop Challenge (OWBC) and along the way we struggled to find our grove. But once we did, they have wormed their way into becoming one of my favorite families. My writing is mostly observational, but definitely dictated by the choices of my sims. While I go into it with intentions and goals, I find that my sims definitely have their own intentions that don’t always line up with mine. At this time, the final generation has been born so the end is coming soon. It has definitely been a wild and wacky journey, and it isn’t over yet!

Where the Willow Walks - a misc. Sims 3 story by Livvielove
About the Story:
Many stories start the same; they start in some place, during some time, with some people.

Image

Yet what happens when the story begins before there is Time? What happens when it's in a place before places? What happens when it's not just about people?

Image

This is a story about spirits, and more notably, the brightest spirit who ever lived and the shadow who loved her more than you could ever comprehend.

Image

Let's just hope I tell it right. Shall we begin?

Laugh your guts off at a chapter's hilarity? Cry at a moving moment in a story? Really like someone's picture-taking abilities? Give that someone a Kudos today! Click here! They won't know how awesome you think they are unless you tell them!
