 As requested by [ profile] orikes13 .  I can't promise that this will be the most illuminating thing you've ever read about Cecil. For one thing, I feel as though I've already said a lot of interesting things about Cecil, and there are  a number of things I would prefer to leave in the dark. However, such as they are, here they are.

Cecil-philes and -phobes alike, rejoice. )
 Is there really anybody left to tag?

 There was an interesting thread last night in Sim_Secret, leading to some interesting discussion on various communities.  Basically, the discussion was about story warnings and whether or not those ought to include portrayals of same-sex relationships.  I wanted to share a few thoughts and see what other people thought, too.

More below the cut. )

There are a few exceptions, which I'm not going to get into here: they are a whole different kettle of fish.  But yeah, even in my Squeaky Clean little world, there are going to be some gay and bi people and they are going to lead happy, fulfilled lives as much as anybody else.  

Warning:  Equal Opportunity Happy Endings.

This is VERY spoilery for 17.2. You don't want to look at this before you read the new update.  I'll be posting some regular outtakes as well.

Let's start with some Weivtnasealp meta, shall we?
Longish meta and pics under the cut! )

Sorry, Zane!  We NEED the Batbox and all those posing hacks!  Aren't you glad I fixed your face?

Anyway, hope you enjoyed the meta!  Plain old picspam later.  I should get back to commenting on portfolios.  I am WAY behind, plus I owe a nice comment on the BRRL.  Jamie's new episode is great.

 [ profile] peasant007  ran the Universal Mary Sue Litmus Test on her character Zane Devereaux, and was alarmed to see that he came up as a 91.  I think the test is flawed and the score was therefore artificially high, but just for larfs, I ran it on my character Cecil Goodytwoshoes.

Cecil scored a 21.  EDIT:  Whoops!  I forgot the De-Sueifiers!  20.

I wasn't all THAT surprised, but I thought I'd add a few comments, because some of this applies to Sims Stories in general.

Long. You've been warned. )

But most of the time, my characters in general have vices that match their virtues.  Sophia has a lot of energy and is very strong-willed; she's also a bit of a rebel and can get in trouble that way.  Is Lytton a quiet, studious, affectionate man who cares deeply about his family, or is he a geeky pushover with an overly idealistic view of human behavior?  Is Cecil admirably steadfast or irritatingly stubborn?  The behavior is the same, but what you think of it depends on who and where you are.

--that it is St. Cecilia's Day. I can take no credit for this: I had totally forgotten it myself, but was reminded when I attended church today (Feast of Christ the King.)

(St. Cecilia, Guido Reni)

Anyway, I thought you might enjoy all that. I carry around a lot of extra material in my skull as a hazard of being a nearly constant tourist to seventeenth-century England.

I haven't been able to play too much: I had a lot of grading to do. I was a good girl and got it done, so I'll be catching up on Legacy Comments tonight and perhaps playing a bit.

 So I'm working away, and among other things, I am preparing to teach Milton's Paradise Lost next week.  And I really enjoyed Jamie's post about Aria and you-know-who.  Which means you are going to get some Cecil meta.  

This is probably only spoiler-y if you haven't read the latest chapter (2/14/09).

If you did read the latest chapter, some of you may have been surprised by Cecil's, um, "employees."  But the suggestions have been there at least since last year.  Which way I go is Hell. . .  )Anyway, I thought you'd enjoy that, and I hope I didn't wind up revealing where this is going to go.  I always think that, and then it turns out not to have been true.
