Story Newsletter: June 2019

Hasasnaps, Boolpropians!

We've got one heck of a June planned for you! If you haven't already, I highly recommend hopping down to the Summer Fete while it's in town! The moderators of Boolprop and I have put a ton of effort into making these events and we're all hopping and bopping to see them enjoyed! Doubly with this, we're also celebrating PRIDE! It doesn't matter how you identify or who you love, the Sims is a game that unites us all, and we can express ourselves through writing it together! Please be sure to stop by the Fete area and have a look at the PRIDE events Heather has made! There's a Positivity Thread, to share some happy things; a Playlist Thread, to get your jam on to LGBTQIA+ positive music; and a Screenshot Event, to share ALL of your favorite Sims. It's important to note that you don't need to identify as LGBTQIA+ to stop in and share some love and support! All are welcome to share and embrace what a wonderful family we have here on Boolprop!

With these announcements out of the way, another EPIC thing of WONDERFUL proportions that relates to our Story Newsletter is: I got out the Rules for SimNaNo 2019! Yay! Please come drop by to give the Rules a read and chat in the Coffeehouse! Sign-Ups will open on the 5th of June (so I have time to prepare the banners/setup) so mark your calendar and the Update thread will open on the 1st of July! Ready or not, SimNaNo here we come!

This month, I want to focus on two different challenges! (Gasps from the audience) Why yes, I too, am surprised by this. The first challenge I want to give props to is in honor of PRIDE month: the RAINBOW Legacy! And yes, that did take me 5 minutes just to format that, please be impressed. ;) Legacies have been a long-running favorite of Boolprop and many Sim communities, and the Rainbow Legacy is a twist on that classic. I give props to anyone who does a Rainbow Legacy, and to anyone who has ANY part of the rainbow in their stories/challenges/lives. We're all beautiful and in full color, and that's something to be proud of!
The second challenge I wish to highlight this month is the Kissing Booth Challenge! This new Boolprop Challenge came up on a whim and we've had a blast making a little challenge to go along with our Fete! Never fear, this is a challenge that will remain! The goal is, in a Whose Your Daddy style, you want to collect as many points as you can by kissing as many different Sims as possible! The challenge ends when your Sim dies of old age. Count up the kisses, rack up the points, and get a medal for your trouble: Image

Please don't forget to stop in and offer an amazing story a Kudos. It takes 30 seconds and will make someone's whole day (or week)!
New Member Stories this Month: Give 'em a warm, Boolprop welcome!

New Stories this Month: Stop by and support our awesome members' new stories!

Anniversaries: Congratulations on a(nother) year with your story!

Some Kudos: You've been noticed!
  • I wanted to give a shout-out to Gryffindork and her Dysfunkshinul Legacy. Nary a soul alive hasn't heard of this epic tale, but her persistence in posting even as she's studying in another country has me giving her a standing ovation! Good luck on your studies! Fantastic legacy!
  • After a short break the Kalaya ISBI by queentigress is back and I'm so happy to see it! There was an epic push for chapters released for it in May and I just wanted you to know, queentigress, that it was definitely noticed!
  • I have a Kudos to ALL the writers on Boolprop, no matter your age, size, orientation, religion, race, favorite color, shoe-size, you name it! We all are a great community, and I LOVE getting to write these newsletters and see how much we grow as a whole. Thanks for being the best place on the internet! And always remember that ALL of your stories are welcome and appreciated, no matter how big, small, serious, goofy, formal or informal it is!

Completed Stories: Congratulations on finishing!

I hope everyone has a FANTASTIC June. Please enjoy the Fete! I look forward to seeing you all for SimNaNo come July!

I’ve been away for a while and was scrolling through my spam emails (as you do) and found a book prop email telling me I’d won story of the month! thank you so much! I finished the Luck LEPacy a while back but still haven’t got round to finishing posting it all, but it warms my heart to know someone’s been reading it still! ❤️ Hopefully I can make a return to boolprop now my exams are over!
