It's really rare that I get conquered by a sims story because most of them are not interesting, they usually have the same old repetitive plot and the pictures are not always great.
So you can imagine my delighted surprise when I found "Fortune & Romance".
The story is very original, each chapter always leaves you wanting for more, is well written and the pictures are simply gorgeous (I'm a person who doesn't like the "maxis match" style but the pictures are so good that I forget that I'm seeing a "maxis match" game). It gives you a whole new light about the premade characters - and I'm loving that!
I strongly recommend. Read it, you won't regret.

Seriously people, I don't care if you hate premades, Skell will convert you to love these two no matter how many stories you've read where they're the villians.

I tried to post a review about the story earlier, but I may have spoiled too much in it.

Anyways, I love this story! I think it's one of the very best prequels I have ever read. I like stories about premades, but I don't like stories where Dina is portrayed as a gold-digging villain. Fortune and Romance, however, portrays Dina, who is my favourite premade female sim, in a new light and that is one of the things I really like about it. I also like the creative touches to the backstory [won't say because it might spoil too much for new readers] - I like when authors do something different to the Pleasantview storyline to make it unique.

Personally, Nina Caliente is my least favourite sim, but I really like her character in F&R. All the characters are brilliant, in my opinion. I can really relate to some of them. And the writing is fantastic, and so are the pictures! [I wish I could take pictures that were even half as good as Skell's.]

I think it's a must-read! =)

I love how Skell has taken the story of Dina and Nina and given it a new twist. I never really cared for either of these premades until I read her story. She blends Maxis canon with her own original ideas quite well. I am also very impressed with the photos in this story as well - the attention to detail is amazing.

I agree that this is one of the must reads in anyone's Sim story reading list. The writer does humour so well, reading an update could easily be the bright part of anyone's day. She takes her own spin on popular and not-so-popular maxis characters, and they are original, funny and well thought out. And I can't say enough about the pictures, it's obvious that the author puts a lot of work into her images. Personally, I love the cartoony style of her pictures, and I also appreciate how much of the story her pics actually tells.

Hands down, this story is one of the best I've read. I dislike Sims stories that are too realistic and full of emo angst. The Sims are meant to be somewhat silly. Skell's story captures the silliness while still conveying a sense of poignancy. Her attention to detail and stunning pictures only add to the enjoyment.
