The Bachelorette: An Interactive Story--Goodbye for Now 18/8
« on: February 18, 2013, 08:43:55 PM »
Introduction

Hello! As I'm sure you know, I am Devin Ashton, host of the hit SNBC* show The Bachelorette.



We are just about to start a new season, and we want you. Do you think you have what it takes to date the next bachelorette?



Before you answer that, answer these questions:

Would you like to spend the next several weeks partying at glamourous clubs and exotic locales?



Do you want fame and glory?



Most importantly, do you want the chance to fall in love?



If all of these things appeal to you, ask your Watcher to send you to Starlight Shores for the chance of a lifetime!



You'll get to stay in the gorgeous Bachelorette Mansion, built by the world-famous and fabulous builder intl_incident!



Be sure to check out my favourite place, the pool. It is awesome!



I hope you're not camera-shy, because there will be screenshots!



I personally look forward to meeting those lucky men who will get to date the lovely bachelorette!



Speaking of the bachelorette, tune in tomorrow to meet her!



Well, that's all for now, folks! We'll see you next time!

The "Rules"

The Source

Okay, here's the breakdown. Have you heard of the TV programme The Bachelorette? No? Well, I'll explain it to you briefly. One girl, many guys. (In the case of the original show, 25. In our case, seven.) The eligible lady is pursued by all of these men, each of whom hopes for the chance of a future with her. Each week, the bachelorette chooses who will go on a series of dates, a mix of single and group dates, and thus get the chance to spend precious time with her and convince her he is The One! At the end of every week, a Rose Ceremony is held in which the bachelorette presents the men, one at a time, with a rose. However, not everyone can get a rose and each week someone will have to go home. So it's really important to make a good impression! Eventually the bachelorette will narrow all of her choices down to one, and that man is the one that wins her heart.

See how Eliminations work on this show here.

The Guidelines for Submission

As implied in the post above, the people submitting the eligible bachelors will be--you! So put on your thinking caps and try to make the Sim that the bachelorette will be most likely to fall in love with. If you want to enter, here are some guidelines:

This will be a time commitment for you, should you choose to enter. It will require playing time beforehand and regular correspondence with me about your Sim, so that I can portray him most accurately. If you do not have the time to commit but would like to participate, there are other options.

You are encouraged to make your contestant a family, home, back-story. Please feel free and give them any career, Lifetime Wish, skills, and Lifetime Happiness Rewards that you desire. The only thing I ask is that you refrain from using Prepared Traveller, as it will disrupt my plans.  I have World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, Pets, Showtime, Supernatural, Seasons, Fast Lane, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Riverview, Monte Vista, and Hidden Springs, so any content from those will translate fine to my game.  I also have quite a bit of Store content, so feel free to ask me if you have questions about specific content.

I will not take submissions for at least two weeks after this post. This is to give you time to play the Sim you create and give him a background. Again, you are very strongly encouraged to do this. However, you are allowed to “call” being in the contest, and this will keep a lot of people from creating Sims that then will not be used. We are looking for seven bachelors, which means seven people. You may start "calling" your places right away.

About the "other options" I mentioned--I will be needing Sims other than the bachelors as a part of this story. If you have only limited time or if someone called a place before you, let me know if you would be interested in making a Sim to be featured somewhere in the story! I already have some set Sims I will need, but I can take other Sims as well. Let me know if this option interests you.

The Technical Bit

The thread will be open for submissions starting on 4 March. I realise that many of you will be getting University and want to start playing right away, so I wanted to give plenty of time before it comes out. However, I also realise that some of you are playing the current challenges which end on the same day, so you may have an additional week to play and submit your Sim by 11 March. Let me know if this sounds reasonable and fair.

Thanks to everyone for reading, and I hope you participate! This should be a lot of fun.

The Acknowledgements

Formal appreciation goes to Audren for inspiring me with his interactive story, The Mole. If you haven't already, check it out. It's a fun read. Also for help and advice in the early stages.

Thanks also to intl_incident, who built the beautiful mansion at which the first two weeks of the show will take place. Just wait until you see it, it is amazing!

Submissions are no longer being accepted.

Wow. I said that I probably wouldn't submit a Sim, but your intro is quite compelling.  :P 

intl_incident really is a great builder. The penthouse I used in The Mole was also built by intl. I'm not calling a spot yet, because I haven't quite decided if I want to join, but I'll definitely be reading.

I'm so glad to see this up, and I'm thrilled that I inspired you to try this.  ;D

Haha! We have ways of making you enter! :P

Oh yes indeed. A truly great builder, I have been very impressed.

In all seriousness, it is all right if you don't think you have time to enter, there are always the "other options" if you are so inclined. I need readers as well as creators so I am glad of either and both  ;D I'm really glad you inspired me too! It has been a lot of work but very fun so far and I know as soon as other people get involved it will become even more fun!

I think I could come up with a bachelor as well (it's time I admit to myself that I won't be finishing the Baby Boomer challenge this year, again).

Let me know what you need from me.

Whee! Three entrants already! We're almost half full! Thank you, ladies. I will PM you directly.

I would love to submit a bachelor.  When do you need him?

I won't take anyone before 4 March, because I want to make sure they are developed as characters and not fresh out of CAS. More info in the PM.

Sigh, that Baby Boomer really is a challenge. I'm on the verge of giving up as well, if my game keeps not saving. :(

I might be interested in submitting a sim at some point.  More than likely in the other options part, but if I get around to patching up, I might look into making a bachlor canidate.

Absolutely, I'll do it right now.

Anything you'd like to do is fine, I will be delighted either way :) Just let me know when you decide. Keep in mind though that unless you formally call your place, someone else may jump in.

Aww, how sad! I hate game malfunctions  >:( I wonder why it won't work...is it just sharing, or can you not save a Sim at all?

Wow! I'm speechless! No, I don't mind at all! Thank you, Pam. I don't even know what to say. :D

I'll read along :). I don't dare actually enter something like this: too much possibility for me to fall away for days without notice.

Glad to have you reading. Remember if you want to participate but can't commit to a bachelor (oh haha that came out funny ;)) then there are the "other options."

I wanna play! Can I make a bachelor, please?  :)

You absolutely may. He's not going to be the brother of Drizzelda, is he? I'll send you a PM.

This look awesome! Congrats being featured on the facebook page. I'll be reading for sure! ;D

Yay! Thank you. Glad to have you reading--makes it seem more official somehow.

All right Audren! I will send you the PM! And thank you :)

Thank you, thank you. I totally understand time crunch issues. We need readers as well as participants, actually a great deal more readers! So thank you. As always, remember the "other options."
