The Doll House S3E8: Let’s Get Physical

PREVIOUSLY ON “The Doll House”: An all-night dancing endurance challenge led to Johnny taking control of the master bedroom for his first time, and after half a week of friendly antics, we used some… quasi-legal methods to up the conflict factor in the house for the second half of social week. Fights broke out everywhere! Drinks were thrown! The hot tub got infected! It was glorious, it was trashy, it was the Doll House! But at the end of the week, Johnny emerged as the most popular member of the Doll House class of Season 3 and kept the key to the master bedroom, while Blort was gently told how much he was hated and shown the door. NOW: A new challenge poses a unique threat to every houseguest. Will Meg finally rise to the top now that her nemesis is gone? Will Harry remain emotionally stable now that his lover is gone? Will everyone else in the house be able to keep from flipping out on an increasingly smaller number of houseguests? Find out tonight, on “The Doll House!”

The Doll House S3E7: The Real Housewives of the Doll House

PREVIOUSLY ON “The Doll House”: The remaining six houseguests were tasked with getting nice and friendly with each other when it was revealed the next house task was a social one. Desperate to break away from her terrible performance in the previous two challenges, Rafaella immediately started cozying up to everyone, making many, many, many offers for sweet lovin’ to her fellow houseguests. Blort, meanwhile, missed the point of the task and attempted to drive everyone else off in an attempt at strategy. At the same time, I made a joke about Harry not appearing and then he got a lot of publicity because of how much he was appearing. The other three did stuff as well, I’m pretty sure. Oh well. TONIGHT: We see the resolution of the dramatic endurance challenge cliffhanger. Who will win the master bedroom? How will the remainder of friendship week go?

The Doll House S3E5: Everyone Goes a Little Bit Insane

Last time on “The Doll House”: Following Jeff’s eviction, the house was given a new challenge for the week: becoming chess geniuses. Some people immediately took to the challenge, while others once again spent the week screwing around. However, it quickly became clear that this challenge was a race between two people: Blort, whose (alleged) alien genetics gave him an advantage in all mind games, and Meg, who was determined to take the master bedroom away from Blort and for herself. In addition, Blort formed about 20 alliances with a whole slew of houseguests entirely within his own head, and Rafaella started to become ostracized from the rest of the house, largely due to her own paranoia and insanity. At the second mid-week checkup Blort’s mental skills proved superior and he managed to keep hold of the master bedroom, while Shadbak, Aqua, and Rafaella were all locked in the challenge area as punishment for their lack of commitment to the game. Tonight: Will the three girls’ insanity from being locked up lead us faster to the devolution of humanity than reality television already has? Will Meg be able to defeat Blort and win the master bedroom? And who will be the second houseguest evicted? It’s all happening right now on “The Doll House”!

The Doll House S3E4: Game of Boards

Previously on “The Doll House”: After placing lowest in the gardening challenge, Jeff, Johnny, and Rafaella all experienced 24 hours of life in hell. After lots of peeing, puking, and passing out, the three just barely survived, with a newfound appreciation for the fragile gift of life and a newfound determination to work on the gardening task. Well, at least Johnny did; Rafaella and Jeff, unfazed by the imminent threat of eviction, continued to squander about and do nothing. As the week progressed, the house gained a visitor in the form of a magical, heart-shaped plant that created several interesting new showmances and very nearly took over the house. In the end, dark horse Blort pulled through and managed to win the luxury bedroom, while preppy boy Jeff became the first evictee of the season. Tonight: With a new challenge on the horizon, how will the house prepare? Will Rafaella realize that she is playing a game with competitions, or will she ignore the challenge again and meet her end in the process? And will the Magic Horny Plant take over the house, and shortly, the world? Find out right now on, “The Doll House”!

What have I gotten myself into…

Oh wow, I finally did this.

Hello everyone! (or at least the two of you who will actually read this)

I’m gizmosparadise, better known as gizmoman49 over on the Mod the Sims’ message boards and many, many other places. The only thing I actually contributed to MTS was my Big BrotherĀ ripoff homage series called “The Doll House”, made with Sims 3 and later Sims 4. It was a stupid project that I started one lazy summer afternoon, but it slowly grew into something I kept adding to, and I now love it as if it were my own small, deformed child. Unfortunately life is a thing that happens, and I don’t have the chance to update the series nearly as much as I used to, but every few months I’ll have a glorious hour or two of free time and write a few words of the next chapter.

But that all changed a few weeks ago.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

So the way the series worked was that I would upload the photos to my Photobucket account, and then write the posts on Mod the Sims, using embedding the photos from Photobucket into the post.

Well, a few weeks back Photobucket decided that their heads weren’t far enough up their own asses, and plunged deeper by making embedding images on sites other than Photobucket a premium feature.

A premium feature you have to pay $400 a year for.

Now as much as I love “The Doll House”, I am not about to sell drugs or my body so I can keep writing it. Also, I don’t think the MTS mods were 100% happy with me using their site for my own storytelling needs. So I decided to pack my bags and head for the promised land: WordPress!

WordPress lets you upload images, right? Maybe I made this blog for nothing!

Regardless of that, I hope I can make this site into my own little paradise of writing and sharing whatever other rambling thoughts come to my brain. Gizmo’s Paradise, if you will. (Brilliant title, right?)

Right now my purpose is to continue the legacy of the Doll House on here, first by reuploading all the Season 3 posts I’ve made so far and then continuing it. After that, who knows what? Maybe I’ll do a legacy, I’ve always wanted to try out one of those. Or maybe I’ll turn this into a conspiracy blog and post proof that Obama is an alien lizard. Maybe.

Whatever happens next, it’s gonna be exciting, so stay tuned!
