Alice and Kev

If you have followed a link from another site straight to this page, you might want to visit the Introduction before you start reading, to learn what this is all about.

This is Kev and his daughter Alice. They’re living on a couple of park benches, surviving on free meals from work and school, and the occasional bucket of ice cream from a neighbour’s fridge.

When you create a person in The Sims 3, you can give them personality traits that determine their behaviour. Kev is mean-spirited, quick to anger, and inappropriate. He also dislikes children, and he’s insane. He’s basically the worst Dad in the world.

This is someone Kev met in the park. Kev implied this person’s mother was a llama.

Then he tried to apologise by giving him a romantic kiss.

His daughter Alice has a kind heart, but suffers from clumsiness and low self-esteem. With those traits, that Dad, and no money, she’s going to have a hard life.

Next: No hugs and no sleep

    I love this story…I’ve read it twice, and both times I have really enjoyed it. It’s beautifully written and very understated. It’s by far the best sims story I’ve ever read. 🙂

    This is an amazing story. I was hooked the moment I started reading. I’m sad there isn’t more to read, but I still love the story. You did great!

    Hello! I read this story years ago, and I thought it was brilliant. It was the first Sims story I ever read. Before then, I didn’t even know that people made stories with the game. I was so moved by this story, I made my own homeless guy to play with. I felt like my guy could have a made a good story too, but I didn’t want to be a copy cat so I just played with him without writing. I didn’t read another Sims story until TS4 came out. I even started my own legacy challenge. Now I can’t stop writing Sims stories! It all started with Alice & Kev 🙂 I’ve thought about this story a lot over the years and wanted to revisit it, but I couldn’t remember the name. Luckily someone on the forums knew exactly what I was talking about and gave me the link. Now I can read it again! I wish I could do something like this in TS4, but it’s not much of a challenge to have a homeless person in that game. It would be too easy. Anyway, thanks for the inspiration!

    This was one of the first Sims stories I ever read and you inspired me to start my own. I’m going back and rereading all the chapters. If I were Alice, I’d suffer from low self-esteem too. Poor dear.
