So a simblr thing inspired me. There is supposed to be a simblr twins appreciation thing for sim twins today. As Evie has a twin sister, Mae, I thought I'd take part with them. Then I got to thinking it would be a fun way to get to know them and their relationship a bit for those who didn't read this before I started posting it on a blog as I used to just post on the EA Sims forums. Also for the people there as not everybody was there for the whole thing, and I jumped around trying to recover from serious technical difficulties and stuff. So I thought a recap of, and update on (for those who've known the family for a while), the girls and their relationship would be nice. Of course, we'll get to know some of this anyway in actual updates, but this is just a fun bonus thing that might offer different insight. It's not perfect, as I said I hit some severe technical difficulties and that messed things up and left me with gaps, and I didn't want to get too fussy or anything I wanted this to just be brief and fun. So I hope you enjoy.
Evie and Mae, the eldest children to Alaina and Keenan Ellison. If you want to get technical Evie is the eldest by about 15 minutes. From birth, they were pretty much inseparable, and if you could find one crawling around the house you'd find the other.
As their parents were still unwed (they were only 17 and in college at the time) when they were conceived they got to be the most precious little flower girls ever at their parents wedding and share in the special day. Really the whole family was very close.
They stayed very close as they and the family grew. A brother, just a few months younger than the twins, joined the family through adoption when they were about 3. The girls still remained very close to each other though and were the best of friends. Not that they didn't love their brother too, but there's something special about a twin. They'd spend all day playing video games, singing and torturing their parents with the karaoke machine, or just wandering around the festivals that took place at the park beside their house.
However, as Evie started making new friends in school, she and Mae began to grow apart. Evie still wanted to be best friends with her (by then eldest, as a new baby girl was born into the family) sister, but Mae just never wanted to hang out with or even talk to her. By the time they hit their teen years they just fought constantly, the fight always started by Mae. Thought it wasn't just Evie that Mae fought with, she fought with everybody, it just seemed worse when she fought with her twin sister as they were always expected to be so close (and Evie did want that more than anything).
Now they're a few years older, and slightly more mature, and are becoming closer again. They still fight maybe a bit too often.
But they make up by the end of the day.
And when they do hang out and get along, they get along great.
and some bonus picture because... I want to share them... the point was to have fun and I did lol.
I also feel like I should say, if there's anything you'd like to know about the family or ideas for bonus things you'd like to see, just let me know, leave me a comment somewhere on the blog or something. I kind of enjoy doing stuff like this, just never know what to do, so let me know if you think of anything. For any stories/legacies I do. I mean I can't make promises I'll do anything, but speak up because if I can do it I will.
