Lost Challenge - Intros
This is the story of a man named Jed… wait, no… this is about a television series called “Lost” that I have never watched… but the challenge looked… well challenging and insane and downright fun… so I thought someday…
Then Shaunna offered her sims & lot to me so I wouldn’t have to build and create my own… ah the woman knows my weakness… okay fine… here I am… trying my hand at the Lost Challenge. (For rules on play you can find it here
First off, I forgot an over view of the lot… if you read Shaunna's blog on her Lost Challenge
, then you've seen it… as well as these guys, but here they are all again to say hi…
In alphabetical order we have:
Charlie, Mr. Popularity
Hurley, Mr. I-just-wanna-have-fun
Jack, Mr. Know-it-all
Kate, Ms. Love-‘em-n-leave-‘em
Locke, Mr. Brooding
Sawyer, Mr. Moneybags
Sayid, Mr. Knowledgeable
Sun, Ms. My-picture-is-missing
Wait, Sun… your picture is missing… where is that girl? Sun? Oh well, we’ll just use this shot of her instead.
Sun: Oh Gods, that is a horrible picture of me!
And I am your host, Hugh Dowery.... you may remember me from the show 'The Bachelorette
We'll return to the show after this brief commercial message.
*insert brief commercials here*And now back to the show...
Lost Challenge - The Beginning
*'Lost' theme music plays*
*end theme music*
I'm your host, Hugh Dowery... let's see, where were we... oh right, we had just introduced the 'Lost' crew and we were gently interrupted by our sponsors... now the rules of the challenge are simple enough... 8 cast members reenacting the early parts of the show, or something of that sort. The producer has never watched the show 'Lost' so this is your end result... you get a more 'reality' based challenge instead. So let's get to this shall we?Sayid: Getting a job was tough, I mean there was only 3 jobs offered daily and the same ones kept popping up. How were we suppose to get aspiration points if we can't work?Charlie: I found a job the first day, and 1,000 sweet aspiration points!Sayid: That's my point, it was totally random and it messed with my strategy!Hurley: Wait, you had a strategy?
I see you all started out with fishing. Where were you at this time Sayid?Sayid: I was tasked with emptying the mandatory refrigerator... and then went for a swim.
Is that about the time it started raining?Kate: It rained non-stop for days... and I want everyone to notice it wasn't 'me' talking about kissing.Sun: We were talking strategy... it was a sound idea really... dating is good for aspiration points!
Unfortunately along with the rain, came lightening... and fires. How did you handle the fire?Sawyer: Fire? Ah man, no more fires... please... no more fires... *holding head in painful memory*Hurley: Ya, you really lost it after about the third one that first day.Sawyer: Yes, thanks for reminding me... that is right about the time we decided a sink would be a good idea.Kate: Mmmmm, yes a sink was a great idea... where was I when this happened?Sawyer: Oh 'boop'! My mom's watching the show!Sun: What? There is nothing wrong with the human body... its a beautiful thing... a work of, um...Kate: Sexuality? Hotness? The phrase, "bow chica bow wow" comes to mind...
What happened Charlie?Charlie: I was hungry... and tired... and I guess the two combined does not mix well. It was the only fire caused by the grill...Sawyer: Caused by you, you mean...Charlie: Right, so uh... I was the only one having troubles with the grill... oh come on, it was our first night there and it was pretty late. We were all pretty hungry, I was the only one with high enough comfort to cook.Hurley: Oh man, I didn't think I'd ever be comfortable again until we got the beds... but that first night...Sawyer: What are you complaining about? At least you were on the couch!Tuesday morning, 6:00 am!
*ding* Everyone freeze please!
Goodness I see we have a 5 way tie... time to get the 6-sided-die out... hmmm, now would be a good time to end. See you next time at Lost Challenge!
*cue 'Lost' end theme*Who will be rolled out first?
Lost Challenge - Beginning Continues
*'Lost' theme music plays*
*end theme music*
Welcome back, if you recall, we had a 5 way tie... that's right, 5 contestants with 0 aspiration points... not surprising with a total of 4 fires, 3 natural and 1 grill.
So last time, we saw that 6-sided-die come out and rolled... naturally it rolled a 6, so we roll again... tension mounts and we have our first 'Others' victim.
He had to be woken up in order for him to be 'taken'.
Thanks for playing, Sawyer... you do realize the first to go is rarely seen or heard from again during the challenge...Sawyer: Not to sound ungrateful for the chance to be on the show and all, but it was such a set up. I mean come on... Charlie must have set that fire on purpose! Too many of us had zero aspiration points and there he sits with 2,000? Coincidence? I don't think so.Charlie: What? I... you know, you're just upset because you were eliminated so early. Sour grapes, man... sour 'booping' grapes.
So Kate... he's a bit... oh, I dunno... young
for you... don't you think?Kate: *laughing* Oh definitely... even I have my standards. I just had an urge to meet someone new... maybe when he grows up, if you're watching... call me... you have my number!
I see you finally broke down and purchased a shower.Sayid: Oh my... well *ahem* yes... after washing our hands so many times, the fumes would go away, but we were never clean enough... with the exception of Sawyer naturally. Kate: Oooo... now we all know what she sees in you..Sayid: Oh um, *blush* yes... well... that is another story is it not?
My, my Sun, it looks as if the shower was giving you a hard time. Why didn't you ask someone to do it for you?Sun: Being a knowledge sim, I wanted and needed the mechanical skills. I realize it gave me a hard time, but I managed to get it fixed that time and many times after that. Besides, I really needed a shower!Sun: Hurley!Hurley: What? The water build up from the shower leaking was creating weeds and I was helping... *blush*
Oh Kate got shot down!Sawyer: Oh man, Charlie.. are you gay? How could you not tap that boop?Kate: *laughing* Oh he eventually gave in... no one resists me once I get my sights on him...Charlie: Or her... Kate: Whatever...
I see you tried your hand at it as well, Sun?Sun: No! Oh, um yes... sort of. We had more of an outing than a real date. There was no love there... just two people becoming friends really. And he never came by again... so... um...
I see you started a garden Hurley...Hurley: Yup, got that garden started... but um, I didn't get very far with it unfortunately... it was um...Friday 6:00 am...
*ding* freeze frame!
Sorry Hurley, we'll finish that thought in a moment... first we have aspirations to look at...
Ah so this is why you didn't get very far with the garden... makes sense now. Bye Hurley, thanks for playing!
The weekend seemed to have flashed by quickly... Jack, you've been very quiet over there.Jack: What? Oh! I hadn't realized... have I been quiet?
Anything to add before we get to Sunday's aspiration check?Jack: Um, no... nothing much... I just fished, skilled and met people to help with promotions.
A love connection here perhaps?Jack: With the mail carrier? No, just friends... I um, am not really in to redheads nor am I in to using people for aspiration points.
It isn't using her if you tell her upfront what your intentions are...
Moving along to Sunday 6:00 am
Oh, gosh... didn't quite make it to your first day of work I see. Shame... maybe you'll get 'rescued' on Monday... it's been known to happen. Trends dictate, it is usually the last person that is 'taken' is who is 'rescued'... but it doesn't look good that Charlie didn't come to say good-bye, seeing how he is currently in the lead.
And here is where we say good-bye for now... join us next time when we see who gets 'rescued' and who stays with the 'Others'.Thanks for tuning in!
